Glenn Beck for Peace
Two things about this post from Peter Wehner at Commentary. I couldn’t agree more that Beck doesn’t represent the “disposition” we want associated with conservatism. But far more interesting is this:
His interest in conspiracy theories is disquieting, as is his admiration for Ron Paul and his charges of American “imperialism.” (He is now talking about pulling troops out of Afghanistan, South Korea, Germany, and elsewhere.)
Could Glenn Beck represent the spearhead of a coming sea change on the right? Could Beck be the one to strip the grassroots right of its obsession with American exceptionalism? Wouldn’t there be some really grand irony in that?
