What about Glenn Beck's freedom of speech, huh?


Teary-eyed America-lover Glenn Beck has been suspended by Sirius XM satellite radio for a whole week after a guest on his show warned that Donald Trump is such a great danger to democracy that if he became president, some "patriot" might have to remove him from office, if you know what he meant (and after eight years of wingnuts saying exactly the same thing about Barack Obama, you probably do). Beck has his very own internet and cable network, The Blaze Teevee, so he'll probably find some way to stay busy.

Politico reports,

Last week, fiction writer Brad Thor appeared on Beck's program and suggested GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was a danger to America and that citizens would have to take means that may not be legal in order to get Trump out of office. Beck did not immediately admonish or distance himself from the comments, leading to the suspension by SiriusXM.

The satellite radio network says it's "evaluating" whether to keep carrying the program. A statement from the network reads,

SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.

Nicely CYA'd guys!

Thor explained on Beck's show last Wednesday he "guarantees" a President Trump would probably suspend the Constitution, just like all those times Barack Obama has, what with the madness for power and so on. He introduced his comments as a "hypothetical" situation being proposed by a "thriller writer," to make it clear that he wasn't reaaaaally advising such a course of action.

“With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President?” Thor said. “If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if he oversteps his mandate as President, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as President.”

Nudge-nudge, wink-wink! We have to say, this seems like something new, since we've been hearing for years about how Barack Obama was a power-mad dictator in mom jeans who would inevitably destroy America unless We The People exercised our Second Amendment rights to prevent tyranny. But that's merely taking sensible precautions to preserve Liberty. Haven't these guys noticed that Donald Trump isn't Kenyan? Still, it's nice to see someone finally noticed that fantasies about murdering a president might be a bad thing. Guess these guys just love that Tree of Liberty so much they want to water it every chance they get.

As of yet, nobody seems to be insisting that SiriusXM can't take a joke or asking where is their stupid sense of humor anyway?

Now we're just waiting for one of the gun-humping militia boobs to triumphantly exclaim, "See? We weren't racists when we wanted to shoot Obama!" They'll probably demand an apology, too.

Let's take a break from the awful terrible news for a moment and check in with Donald Trump Jr. and his unfortunate face. As you may remember, Junior and his wife Vanessa are getting divorced, probably because Vanessa Trump is tired of waking up from nightmares about being married to a guy with that face and immediately seeing him sleeping next to her in bed with that face just leaving imprints on their nice luxury pillows. And the divorce has apparently been getting DIRTY, because "somebody" has been leaking stories to the New York Post about how Vanessa Trump used to write love letters to her MS-13 boyfriend in jail and Vanessa Trump used to date 9/11 and Vanessa Trump doesn't need any Trump money because she is swimming in Marinara Buck$, and so on and so forth. Who is whispering these Vanessa Trump Secrets in the New York Post's ear? Definitely not Junior!

House Republicans, apparently trying to remind America that they're capable of bad decisions on so many more issues than just immigration, have offered a bold new plan to balance the federal budget in just nine years, eschewing the usual 10-year timeline more typical of such rightwing wet dreams to prove they're serious this time. And what an exciting name the thing has: It's called "A Brighter American Future," and it offers such fresh new Republican ideas as massive cuts to Medicare, also privatizing Medicare, chopping Medicaid into little bits, and then stomping on the bits -- all assuming that they've, once again, repealed Obamacare.
