Wow. Now that this turd has been unleashed from Headline News and jumped to Faux News, he’s really gone over the deep end — California is polluting the rest of the union with its wayward leftist ways (hey, what about Prop 8!?), so Glenn Beck’s ready to boot the U.S. down to 49 states to save the family and the right to destroy the environment. David Neiwert @ Crooks & Liars has the video.
Beck: OK, there’s something driving me to the edge of insanity, makes blood shoot right out my eyes, and that is California.
California today, they voted against offshore drilling. Not on their land, or their shore, no. They also voted last week to raise emissions standards because it’s too smoggy there and they care about the trees. Also, uh, in the stimulus, we found out today, it appears as though Hollywood can get a, um, bailout, from you and me, because nobody’s going to see their movies. Hmmph! You’d think maybe they should just make better movies, and then we’d all go. But no no, let’s bail them all out.
The Civil War taught us that, apparently, U.S. states can’t secede from the Union. I’d like to test that one again maybe sometime. But what I’d like to know is if the Union has the right to kick out states. Because if so, I’d like to take a star right out of our flag, and California is it.
From eco-warriors running the state and ruining it to Hollywood projecting their family values and politics on the U.S., and illegal immigration driving them into bankruptcy, the Golden State drives me out of my mind, and I don’t think I’m alone.
