Glenn Beck Accuses Liberals of Coordinating Birther Phone Calls
On his radio show today, Glenn Beck accused someone, somewhere, of orchestrating phone calls about the conspiracy theory that President Obama was not born in America.
“Today there is a concerted effort on all radio stations to get birthers on the air,” said Beck. “I have to tell you, are you working for the Barack Obama administration? I mean, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.”
Beck explained his skepticism of birtherism in a back-and-forth that’s worth reading and concludes with jabs at the press and at the birthers.
“As the guy who the media says is the king of conspiracy theories, all I do are forward conspiracy theories, let me forward this conspiracy,” said Beck. “He was born here because it seems a little unlikely that somebody planted the birth records, okay, a little unlikely, in the newspapers. Now you would say, well, then why doesn’t he just produce? Good question. That one kept me up for minutes at a time, minutes.”
