Bill Kristol was one of the leading ‘conservatives’ to bash Glenn for warning about the uprising in Egypt back when the Arab Spring first began. Well, it’s safe to say Kristol ended up looking quite foolish as the country fell into the hands of the radical Muslim Brotherhood. On radio this morning, Glenn shared a special gift that he made for Kristol to commemorate his buffoonery: a-one-of-a-kind book.
“I have something very, very special right here that we have to savor,” Glenn said. “I have in my hands a book we published ourselves, just for William Kristol. There's one of one. It is Stand For Freedom, by Bill Kristol… We want to thank him for the sweeping of the Arab Spring in the Middle East because it is working out so well. I just want to remind him that 98,000 are now dead in Syria, and he had a lot to do with that. Congratulations, Bill. And all of the wonderful freedom gifts that have been given to the world because of his buffoonery, and so this is really nice.”
The cover of the book features a picture of the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters, while the inside features pictures of Egypt (courtesy of Business Insider’s Robert Johnson) contrasted against Kristol’s truly brilliant foreign policy remarks.
“This is somebody here who's dead, in a car in Egypt,” Glenn said of one page in the book. The picture is accompanied by this Bill Kristol quote:
The United States must support the Egyptian awakening as a paramount moral and strategic interest in real democracy in Egypt and freedom for the Egyptian people.
One of Glenn’s personal favorite lines from Kristol involves a comment he made about Glenn’s predictions in Egypt:
When Glenn Beck rants about the Caliphate taking over the Middle East and lists the connections between Caliphate promoters and the American left, he brings to mind no one such as Robert Welch and the John Birch society. He's marginalizing himself, just as his predecessors did in the '60s.
Other pages of the book include garbage filled speech and gunshot riddled buildings, while Kristol continued to encourage Americans to “greet the Arab Spring with enthusiasm and support.”
“Well this is the conservative Bill Kristol who is saying we have to absolutely have troops and arm people, even the cannibals, we have to arm them in Syria because this is a golden opportunity, and we don't really have a choice, so we should go right into war. And to I thought it would be nice just to mark this momentous occasion as we go into the next Spring by publishing a little book just for him,” Glenn said. “It's only one copy and it's just for him. Stand for Freedom, by Bill Kristol.”
“What I'm going to do is I'm going to write a nice little note in there. I have one other little gift I will give him. I think I am going to give him – not the original – I have the original, but I don't trust Bill Kristol with anything, so I will give him a nice copy of the Neville Chamberlain letter to Hitler, saying I just met with your Hitler youth, and you guys are good,” he continued. “I think [Kristol would] have a lot of respect for Neville Chamberlain.”
“He is a genius,” Pat joked.
“America,” Glenn concluded, “if you ain't listening to Bill Kristol on what you need to do for your foreign policy, you aren't listening.”
