Glenn Beck Attacks Malia Obama

After repeatedly demanding that the families of politicians be left alone (ignoring his own attacks on the Obama family), Glenn Beck attacked Obama’s eleven year-old daughter (video above).  This wasn’t just an isolated line. The routine in which Malia Obama was attacked lasted for eleven minutes with Beck and his co-hosts laughing throughout. Following is the transcript:

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy? Daddy? Daddy, did you plug the hole yet? Daddy?

PAT GRAY (co-host): (imitating Obama) No I didn’t, honey.

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy, I know you’re better than [unintelligible]

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Mm-hmm, big country.

BECK: (imitating Malia) And I was wondering if you’ve plugged that hole yet.

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Honey, not yet.

BECK: (imitating Malia) Why not, daddy? But daddy–

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Not time yet, honey. Hasn’t done enough damage.

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Not enough damage yet, honey.

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah?

BECK: (imitating Malia) Why do you hate black people so much?

GRAY: (imitating Obama) I’m part white, honey.

BECK: (imitating Malia) What?

GRAY: (imitating Obama) What?

BECK: (imitating Malia) What’d you say?

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Excuse me?

BECK: (laughing) This is such a ridiculous — this is such a ridiculous thing that his daughter– (imitating Malia) Daddy?

GRAY: It’s so stupid.

BECK: How old is his daughter? Like, thirteen?

GRAY: Well, one of them’s, I think, thirteen, one’s eleven, or something.

BECK: “Did you plug the hole yet, daddy?” Is that’s their — that’s the level of their education, that they’re coming to — they’re coming to daddy and saying ‘Daddy, did you plug the hole yet?’ ” Plug the hole!

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yes, I was doing some deep-sea diving yesterday, and–

BECK: (imitating Malia) Daddy?

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah, mm-hmm, mm-hmm, I was doing–

BECK: (imitating Malia) Why–

GRAY: (imitating Obama) Yeah, honey, I’m–

BECK (imitating Malia) Why, why, why, why, do you still let the polar bears die? Daddy, why do you still let Sarah Palin destroy the environment? Why are — Daddy, why don’t you just put her in some sort of a camp?

Imagine the outrage from the right if David Letterman had told a joke about an eleven year-old daughter of a Republican. Where was Sarah Palin and why didn’t she protest?

Glenn Beck did ultimately apologize:

In discussing how President Obama uses children to shield himself from criticism, I broke my own rule about leaving kids out of political debates. The children of public figures should be left on the sidelines. It was a stupid mistake and I apologize–and as a dad I should have known better.

I wasn’t sure if he would. Beck does such a great job as acting like a total lunatic that it is easy to forget that he has admitted it is an act (and that people who believe what he says are idiots). Presumably he did realize that he did go too far in his crazy man act.

    It wasn’t the child that Glen Beck was mocking. It was the father’s portrayal of an 11 or 13 year old child, talking as if the child was 5 years old, that he was mocking. The first hole that this child’s father should plug is the one between his ears. Every time he opens his mouth, he weakens the nation. Hmmm, has anyone read Revelations or the  Left Behind series? I believe every red blooded American should. They are enlightening at this time.

    Wait a minute…Obama hates black people now? I thought Glenn was claiming Obama hated whites? For the love of Cthulu, can’t Beck make up his mind ?

    No Zues, Beck was attacking a small child. Even he realized this an apologized.

    The books you suggest are not enlightening at this time–they are more on the level of thought from the dark ages.
