Ted Cruz Describes Glenn Beck As 'Extraordinary' And An 'Educator'

During a North Carolina rally Sunday, Ted Cruz couldn't contain his joy and love for Glenn Beck.

Sen. Ted Cruz held a Sunday rally at zMax Dragway at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. He had several guests (Carly Fiorina) warm up the crowd for him, including Glenn Beck. To say Ted was fawning over Beck, was putting it rather mildly.

"Isn't Glenn Beck extraordinary? I love listening to Glenn, everytime I listen to Glenn I learn something. everytime I listen to Glenn, he's an educator. I love when he brings out the whiteboard. When he walks us through the founding principles of this great nation. When he lays out the threats of progressivism."

Cruz then went on to credit the rodeo clown with predicting the Islamic caliphate's takeover of the world. Did you know we've been taken over and now must bow to Sharia law?

"Remember, a couple of years ago when Glenn was talking about the coming Islamic caliphate? And all the media said, this guy is nuts. But then we saw the rise of ISIS, we saw that speaking the truth has power."

Cruz really loved Beck's Dr. Gene Scott impersonations.

Digby nailed Beck on this a while back.

The difference between Beck and Scott is that Scott merely confused his followers and bilked them out of their money with ridiculous gibberish for his own enrichment. Beck is doing the same thing, but a whole lot of people are taking him seriously as a secular, political force. He's not just affecting the people who choose to follow him. He's affecting the rest of us as well.

To actually publicly take Glenn Beck as a serious educator, one must be either really fu*king stupid or be the biggest liar on the planet.
