Would you spend $5,697 to travel to Israel with Glenn Beck?
Glenn Beck is a cancer.
Any entertainer with his degree of media exposure who is incapable of understanding that his outrageous lies and fear-mongering do not "better" the country he claims to love is as contemptible as a child rapist.
Beck's dramatic ignorance and cosmic stupidity have wrought as much damage to this country as any terrorist. Pledging to donate proceeds from the event to special operations soldiers is a detestable marketing ploy aimed to placate his repugnant flock. Beck's money is no better than blood money. He has become an incredibly wealthy man by dredging the deepest, most absurd fears of our nation's insecurities.
[excerpt] The Fox News host may face his own set of problems when he finally gets to Israel. Earlier this year, Beck was slammed by the Anti-Defamation League for suggesting Reform Judaism was "almost like" radicalized Islam.
