Hey Glenn, why do you need to rip conservatives? Can’t we concentrate on liberals and all the ridiculous things they do instead of fighting among ourselves?
Check it out:
In a wide-ranging interview with The Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman, Glenn Beck took the opportunity to again blast conservatives critical of his decision to greet the recent wave of underage illegal immigrants with toys and hot meals. “I don’t understand those who cannot see the plight of children,” Beck told HuffPo.
The border issue is one example. Beck took heat from fellow conservatives for his decision to distribute large amounts of relief supplies through churches and other organizations in McAllen, Texas, to undocumented children caught at the southern border. Sen. Cruz was at his side.
Beck’s view is that the law says they should not have been admitted and ultimately should not stay. But in the meantime he explains his response in personal terms.
“I don’t understand those who cannot see the plight of children,” he said. “People come here because we have the rule of law, but no one wants their kids to grow up in a society that doesn’t understand justice and mercy.”
The controversy began early last month, when Beck announced that he would provide soccer balls and meals as a way to “help care for some of the roughly 60,000 underage refugees who have crossed into America illegally in 2014.” Outside of Beck’s distasteful grandstanding and playing the victim with the claim that this would be “deadly to my career” (Beck reportedly makes tens of millions of dollars a year), he tore into conservatives who disagreed with him as looking “like they just want judgment” as opposed to mercy.
