Glenn Beck Loses A SiriusXM Radio Show Over Supposed Threats To Assassinate Trump (AUDIO)

Glenn Beck is well known as a right-wing extremist who loves to pass on every conspiracy theory about President Obama while crying Visine tears over the sad state of his country. His “news” network, The Blaze, is a propaganda mill worthy of 1939 Germany. To conservatives, Glenn Beck has been a hero spreading (their delusional version of) the truth to militia wannabes and rightie bigots for years now. His standing with the right has never been questioned — until now that is.

Unfortunately for Beck, he’s gone and made himself a right-wing media pariah by not supporting Donald Trump for president. Beck backed Ted Cruz when he was still in it, proving he didn’t really care which a**hole on the GOP ballot destroyed America just so long as his tax bracket seemed secure. When Cruz backed out, Beck made the mistake of not throwing his support behind Donald Trump but instead interviewing another radical and discussing the possibility that “the American people would be put in the terrible position” of getting rid of Trump if he oversteps his constitutional authority.

SiriusXM has now suspended Glenn Beck’s show for a week while they “reevaluate” its place in the lineup. Sirius said in a statement:

“SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.”

Were Beck and his guest actually talking about assassinating Donald Trump? That seems to be speculative, but anything that takes an idiot like Glenn Beck off the air for even a day is a good thing. Listen to the audio of the exchange below:

It seems a bit ambiguous, sure, but remember: Beck’s audience are the same fools who still believe President Obama installed Muslim prayer curtains,” an item that doesn’t exist in that religion, in the East Room of the White House right after he invited high-ranking members of the Muslim Brotherhood to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom for the summer.

This is devastating news to Beck’s supporters, who will now have to double down on the time they spend listening to Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones. For the rest of us, it’s cause for celebration.
