In the realm of social media, civil discourse is often in short supply. Masked in semi-anonymity, the comments some people unleash range from crude to downright disturbing. Glenn recently came across several comments on his Facebook page (since removed) that demonstrate this case and point.
"I'm disgusted by the people who respond on Facebook now," Glenn said on his radio program Tuesday. "They are a waste of brain matter."
When Glenn shared the news of an assassination attempt on Donald Trump, most people expressed relief that the man had been arrested before doing any harm. But two people chose to spew vitriol instead. Glenn read one comment:
Good --- He deserves it.
"How do you even write that?" Glenn exclaimed. "Two Facebook posts on 'Facebook Glenn Beck' need to be reported to the Secret Service."
Whoever posted these remarks clearly had a flawed understanding of where Glenn stands on the concept of revolutions.
"Who are these people that are coming to my Facebook page? They're not my listeners," he said.
Glenn reminded those listening to him that while he has been equally opposed to Barack Obama as to Trump, he would never suggest harming the president --- or anyone for that matter.
"I stood for the president's security and life. We're Americans, for the love of Pete," Glenn said. "If you want a revolution, I can't help you. Revolutions are not good."
