Oh he apologized for involving her. But only after a hue and cry across the net over his hypocrisy AND by the way, not for the blatant, bitter racism. His instincts to protect his own kids and those of Sarah Palin from criticism & media targeting apparently only extend to African-American children of public figures when it won’t fit into a strategy to score cheap points with Beck’s mouthbreathing bigoted audience.

Here’s the gobsmacking part that really tugged at my heart. How dare he accuse President Barack Obama of hating black people (who include his wife and children) using the mouth of his own black child? (And the rest of his rant not insignificantly accuses Obama of purposely damaging the Gulf and indulges in his paranoid fear/fantasy that Obama wants to put all conservative white people like Sarah Palin and presumably himself in concentration camps.) And just giggles like a fiend the whole time.

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?

Beck’s apology was grossly inadequate in my opinion in not addressing that very sick part of his diatribe. BTW, he also essentially calls Malia poorly educated! We must keep up the pressure on his advertisers until he’s tossed off the air for his racist rancor. In the U.S. & U.K., we’ve succeeded in convincing 126 companies to stop advertising on Glenn Beck’s show because his bigotry is something no company who wants to keep its customers should finance. Remaining racist sponsors I suggest you boycott or pressure include:

  • 1-800 PetMeds
  • Dish Network
  • FreeScore
  • Nutrisystem
  • Oreck
  • Sandals Resorts

Follow @stopbeck on Twitter to help keep the heat on backsliding advertisers or email/call them. Here’s easy info on how to contact these companies and ask them to stop handing $$$ to a racist.

Just so we know how low a man will stoop for ratings, here’s Glenn Beck mocking & attacking an 11 year old girl:

From Media Matters:

UPDATE: Glenn Beck apologizes:

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.
