America’s new Dr. Ruth, Glenn Beck is weighing in on procreation, marriage, and children. Speaking to Daniel Horowitz, an editor (God help us!) at Beck's bastion of fake and unethical news, The Blaze, Beck likened the Senate-passed Respect for Marriage Act to China’s one-child policy.Oh, where to begin?Beck's comment sounds like something Herschel Walker would say, doesn’t it?
I was trying to think of a metaphor for comparing one thing that has absolutely nothing to do with the other, and I couldn't think of anything as ridiculous as comparing marriage equality to a one-child edict.The only thing I could think of was something that Walker actually said about solving the climate crisis: "Since we don't control the air, our good air decided to float over to China's bad air, so when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move.
So it moves over to our good air space. Then now we got we to clean that back up."I don’t see any difference in that statement in terms of clear context than what Beck and his bigoted cohort Horowitz said about marriage equality and China:“When the government makes it that it’s a [sic] equal proposition, it’s a 50-50 proposition, it’s not even a biblical values issue anymore, this is straight-up a continuity of civilization issue,” Horowitz said.
And Beck replied, “This is why China reversed their one-child policy. You cannot sustain anything at this level without procreation.”Later, Horowitz added, “That’s what this is all about.
