CNN's Beck On Wildfire Victims

The devastating fires continue to ravage southern California. At least one person has been killed, dozens have been injured, and hundreds of thousands

The devastating fires continue to ravage southern California. At least one person has been killed, dozens have been injured, and hundreds of thousands have been evacuated from their homes, including a quarter-million people in San Diego alone.

Overwhelmed firefighters said they lacked the resources to save many houses.

“We have more houses burning than we have people and engine companies to fight them,” San Diego Fire Captain Lisa Blake said. “A lot of people are going to lose their homes today.”

And to hear CNN’s Glenn Beck tell it, that’s all right, because those people aren’t any good anyway.

On the October 22 edition of his nationally syndicated radio program, host Glenn Beck stated, “I think there is a handful of people who hate America. Unfortunately for them, a lot of them are losing their homes in a forest fire today.”

I wonder what kind of psychosis leads a person to look at the California wildfires and think about the political ideologies of those who are suffering.

I guess that’s what makes Glenn Beck special.

UPDATE: John Amato: I remember when the earthquake of '94 hit. I was selling computer parts back then to help support myself and a purchasing agent from Alabama told me the reason the quake hit Northridge was because there was so much pornography being produced there. See, we all deserved it.
