Conservative radio host Glenn Beck returned from his 18-day holiday break on Wednesday with a New Year’s resolution to terminate any of his employees who utter President Barack Obama’s name in 2013.
“This is in effect,” Beck warned his staff. “Anyone who brings him up — unless it’s me — is fired… I can’t take the man’s voice, I don’t want to hear him, I don’t want to know about him. You want that information, go anyplace else. There’s thousands of outlets. You can have all the information you want, I’m not talking about that man.”
The radio host explained that calling the president “that man” or simply referring to him as “O” was a matter of putting “safety first.”
“Don’t speak his name!” he continued. “And I’m also going to go with what my mother used to say: if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. So, there you go. I’ve said everything I have to say about that man.”
“Consider that man’s voice and name a swear word.”
