Glenn Beck Thinks Birthers Are ‘Dumb’ Puppets Of The Left

Glenn Beck may have organized the 9/12 movement and think the White House is stock full of Mao enthusiasts but he draws the line at the Birthers! Beck yesterday referred to the movement as “dumb.” So dumb, in fact, that Beck thinks they are likely setting themselves up as puppets of conniving Liberals who are secretly campaigning to get the Birthers on air in order to marginalize them even further. This from Beck’s radio show yesterday:

“There’s always games being played behind the scenes at a talk radio show…Rush has always called them seminar callers. But instead of being coy with the seminar callers or with you, I’m just going to expose the game that is going on. Today there is a concerted effort on all radio stations to get birthers on the air. I have to tell you, are you working for the Barack Obama administration? I mean, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.”

This is not the first time Beck has called out the Birthers for their conspiracy theories — he did so back in August — or noted that he merely thinks the movement helps the President because it is so ridiculous it “immediately marginalizes anyone who says that kind of stuff.” It is however a bit of a new twist to suggest that Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, and the rest of the right-wing talkers (Bill O’Reilly being a notable exception) are playing into the hands of a “concerted campaign.”
