Glenn Beck is still an idiot

Words of wisdom from the "entertainment" of the right:

Beck: This court has done some frightening. frightening things….If I’m president of the US, I would go on National television and say—’ladies and gentlemen, the Supreme Court said that we don’t have Gitmo so that is over. We’re going to release all of them, but I want you to know from here on out our policy is to not have prisoners. We’re going to shoot them all in the head.’

If we think they are against us, we’re going to shoot them and kill them—period because that’s the only thing we’ve got going for us—cause we can put them away and get information. If we can’t put them away and they’re going to use our court system—kill them.

Does anyone remember what American values are anymore? INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. Not if we THINK you're guilty you get shot in the head. Dumbass.

This is my response to CNN:
I've just seen Glenn Beck's recent comments about the SC decision on Gitmo. This is probably the most offensive language I've seen from a news program. I don't care that Glenn Beck is primarily an entertainer, it is shameful that CNN allows him to make comments about killing prisoners as a response to the Court's decision. We live in a country with very hard earned values and one is that people are always innocent until proven guilty. Slanderers like Beck should be held accountable for making such threatening statements. Were I a family member of the detainees, I would have him sued for publicly threatening to shoot people in the head. This is outrageous and pathetic. Glenn Beck should be forced to apologize and then resign.
