Raise your hand if you've known Glenn Beck is a racist since the days when he said President Obama had a deep loathing of white people.

Hands raised? Good, you get an A on this quiz, because he went and did it again.

Fake-mourning Rep. John Lewis' "former" status as a civil rights hero, Beck whined, "He has become a clown. This has made these people, these civil rights leaders, into absolute clowns."

Apparently those who don't want to die staring down the barrel of an assault-style weapon in the hands of a domestic terrorist are clowns.

But he wasn't done. After marginalizing Rep. Lewis, he went on to ask, "Who are the civil rights leaders?"

Of course, he had an answer, too. "I've said this for a long time and people make fun of us: We're the civil rights leaders, we're the civil rights leaders of today. They have discredited themselves and they are dismissed."

Get on out, boy! Us white folks with the guns are far superior to you iconic African-American civil rights leaders.

Someone needs to cut his mic, stat.

Can you help us out?
