A new stunt for Glenny! He's heading to Mexico with teddy bears and water for the refugees. He will be dragging some interesting characters along, too.
July 9, 2014

That's right, Glenny is heading to the Texas border with his pals Louis Gohmert and Mike Lee to hand out food, water and teddy bears. At great risk to his career of course.

Glenn Beck on Tuesday announced that he will be bringing tractor-trailers full of food, water, teddy bears and soccer balls to McAllen, Texas on July 19 as a way to help care for some of the roughly 60,000 underage refugees who have crossed into America illegally in 2014.

Beck said he will be joined by Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), and a number of pastors and rabbis.

“Through no fault of their own, they are caught in political crossfire,” Beck said of the children. “And while we continue to put pressure on Washington and change its course of lawlessness, we must also help. It is not either, or. It is both. We have to be active in the political game, and we must open our hearts.”

Glenn's readers are unhappy.

Commenter RadicalforCapitalism says he's all bluster and no substance. That commenter closed their remarks by saying "After his crying for surrender at Bundy’s ranch, I don’t trust him at all when it comes to the difficult work ahead for decent Americans."

RadicalforCapitalism also probably knows something about the Negro.

nation_in_distress says "Yes take the food & soccer balls Beck, along with however many Greyhound buses it takes to haul them back south. They can eat the food & play ball on the way down."

wigone worries that the children at the border are really sleeper terrorist cells. "Are we allowing possible “Sleeper Cells” in as children that won’t be Identified or tracked to “protect the children”?"

On and on it goes. They're not children, they're animals who should be rounded up and sent back to hell. Glenn is a secret progressive who is subverting the conservative movement. And so on.

These people need a little hardship to figure out how ugly they sound.

Protip for Glenny: Trying to save the GOP from itself is a fool's errand. Oh, wait.
