Glenn Beck adopts Democratic Party line that tea partiers are racists for opposing Obama

Jenny Erikson wrote last month at The Stir:

Recently, Mr. Beck caused quite the ruckus by not only slamming current GOP darling Newt Gingrich on his progressive politics, but also by saying that Tea Partiers must be racist if they support him over Obama.

In an appearance on Judge Andrew Napolitano’s Fox Business Show, Beck said:

If you have a big government progressive, or a big government progressive in Obama … ask yourself this, Tea Party: Is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy, it must be about race. I mean, what else is it? It’s the policies that matter.

Years ago, when a many conservatives were saying they found a lot of value in Beck, I said I couldn’t take the fellow seriously, I thought he was a clown.
