As we told you earlier, Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC) was viciously booed at a town hall Thursday for telling the audience to turn off Glenn Beck.
Now, Inglis is pretty right-wing, and opposes the president’s health care reform plans. But, as he told local blogger Jason Spencer after the town hall, he finds Beck — a pretty strong voice for conservatives these days — a fear-monger.
I don’t listen often to Glenn Beck, but when I have, I’ve come away just so disappointed with the negativity… the ‘We’ve just gone to pot as a country,’ and ‘All is lost’ and ‘There is no hope.’ It’s not consistent with the America that I know. The America I know was founded by people who took tiny boats across a big ocean, and pushed west in tiny wagons, and landed on the moon.
The America that Glenn Beck seems to see is a place where we all should be fearful, thinking that our best days are behind us. It sure does sell soap, but it sure does a disservice to America.
Will Inglis repent to Beck, the way Michael Steele, Eric Cantor and other Republican luminaries repented to Rush Limbaugh a few months ago?
