And so I present one Glenn Beck (the world could not account for two):
Beck continued trying to make a connection between human behavior and the natural disasters that have wreaked havoc in Japan, even casually mentioning "radical Islam" before revealing what he called "the answer."The Ten Commandments. Of course. Not because Japan is located in the Ring of Fire--but because of an Iron Age code of ethics developed by a specific Near-Eastern religious tradition.This would be an odd thing to believe, if I thought Beck believed it. But he is so very frequently a pandering tool, that I believe he got stuck on the "pandering" setting and just went for the obvious pious goofery. ("Which of God's laws did they violate, Glenn?" "All of them." ) It's low, but not beneath him, to blow this kind of "others deserve" business right up his audience's inflamed "sense of smug", which enjoys the mentholated sensation of sheer cold-bloodedness.
"The answer is, buckle up!" he said. "Because it's going to be a bumpy ride."
In light of the disasters that have devastated Japan, the Fox host stressed people should follow the biblical Ten Commandments, or what he referred to as "10 rules of thumb."
"What do you say we start doing those things?" he asked. "Because the things we are doing really suck. And they're not getting better."
He really is a jerk.
