How Does a Conservative Fight Glenn Beck?

By carefully indulging in his insanity, apparently.

Story is, Glenn Beck views Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign as something approximating world government, or socialism, or fascism, or whatever, because someone married to someone in government giving life advice substantially equals the worst of Stalin’s purges. Mike Huckabee, who continues to struggle with obesity, disagrees. Naturally, for Beck, this middling disagreement renders Huckabee a complete enemy, worthy of the ultimate epithet.

As quoted by Politico, Mike Huckabee:

“This week Glenn Beck has taken to his radio show to attack me as a Progressive, which he has said is the same as a ‘cancer’ and a ‘Nazi,’” Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor whose battles with his own weight are well known, wrote on his HuckPAC website. “What did I do that apparently caused him to link me to a fatal disease and a form of government that murdered millions of innocent Jews?”

So, Huckabee takes issue with Beck for equating him, by the transitive property, with Nazis. But not for equating Progressives with Nazis. That’s entirely justified.


  1. Mike Huckabee struggles with obesity? I saw him on Saturday Night Live that one time, and he didn’t look fat to me… Of course, I am obese, so maybe that’s skewed my perceptions?

      He lost a lot of weight some time back. I think that struggle is not falling back into the habits that made him gain weight.
