Beckapalooza-Goers' Racism Barely Out Of View -- Kinda Like The Paranoiac Bulletproof Vest Just Under Beck's Shirt
[Cross-posted at Crooks and Liars.]
Sam Seder has another superb episode of "That's Bullshit" featuring the fine folks attending GlennBeckapalooza last week. One of the more interesting interviewees opines that black people should love coming to Beck events and Tea Parties -- because, after all, when they do, they're fawned all over by white people eager to prove they're not racist.
Me? I'm with Sam and the flag vendor.
Meanwhile, Jason Easley at PoliticsUSA has evidence that Beck was wearing a bulletproof vest under his shirt that day. (I wondered about this myself at the time.)
That raises the question: Did Martin Luther King wear body armor on Aug. 28, 1964? Answer: No. Because he was about love, not fear.
