Beck resolves to fire anyone who mentions Obama in 2013 .... except for Glenn Beck


Conservative radio host Glenn Beck returned from his 18-day holiday break on Wednesday with a New Year’s resolution to terminate any of his employees who utter President Barack Obama’s name in 2013.

“This is in effect,” Beck warned his staff. “Anyone who brings him up — unless it’s me — is fired… I can’t take the man’s voice, I don’t want to hear him, I don’t want to know about him. You want that information, go anyplace else. There’s thousands of outlets. You can have all the information you want, I’m not talking about that man.”

The radio host explained that calling the president “that man” or simply referring to him as “O” was a matter of putting “safety first.”


“Don’t speak his name!” he continued. “And I’m also going to go with what my mother used to say: if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. So, there you go. I’ve said everything I have to say about that man.”

1. Beck is actually elevating Obama to the status of a god--"He whose name shall not be spoken"--

I love it when a Democratic president has this much power to truly mess with little bigoted minds. Love it.

2. It's like the Monty Python movie:

Matthias: Look, I don't think it should be a sin, just for saying "Jehovah".
Jewish Official: You're only making it worse for yourself!
Matthias: Making it worse? How can it be worse? Jehovah! Jehovah! Jehovah!
Jewish Official: I'm warning you! If you say "Jehovah" one more time (gets hit with rock) RIGHT! Who did that? Come on, who did it?
Stoners: She did! She did! He! He did! He!
Jewish Official: Was it you?
Stoner: Yes.
Jewish Official: Right...
Stoner: Well, you did say "Jehovah. "
Jewish Official: STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT RIGHT NOW! STOP IT! All right, no one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle. Even... and I want to make this absolutely clear... even if they do say, "Jehovah. "
