Monumentally dumb, even for The American Spectator

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

The fringe pub just posted a name-calling screed about Obama and 9/11. After reading it a couple times I still have no idea what the Spectator is talking about, other than according to the Spectator's anonymous sources, Obama plans to completely desecrate the memory of 9/11.

Or something like that.

But this passage I got:

Color of Change is the extremist racial grievance group that isn't happy that TV's Glenn Beck did several news packages on Van Jones, the self-described "communist" and "rowdy black nationalist" who became the president's green jobs czar after jumping on the environmentalist bandwagon. The White House may be behind a push to destroy Beck by convincing advertisers to stop buying time on his show.

Read that again. According to AS's Matthew Vadum, Color of Change is leading a advertising boycott Glenn Beck because his show aired some nasty reports about a Color of Change ally, Van Jones.

Talk about living in a parallel universe. The boycott, of course, came in response to Beck's hateful smear that Obama is a "racist" who suffers from a "deep seated hatred of white people." That's why nearly three dozen companies have recently walked away from Beck's show.

But in Spectator's la-la land, Beck never called the President of the United States a racist. The episode simply does not exist.
