Even Glenn Beck can’t mess with the Jews.

The host of the top-rated Fox News program had to send a hand-written letter to Mr. Simon Greer to ameliorate the situation.

The point to be taken from this is not that Glenn Beck despises socialism, communism, and fascism, and believes that ‘caring for others’ and ‘achieving the greater good’ leads to tyranny.  These are old news.  What is of note should be the power and reach of the Jewish community (and lobby) in America, even today.  Glenn Beck hosts one of the highest rating ‘news’ programs on television, and here he was, writing a letter of (somewhat) reconciliation to Greer:

“Although Greer said he wouldn’t categorize the letter as an apology, he said that Beck explained he’d been informed of the organization’s concerns and took them very seriously.”

This also shouldn’t strike as a surprise.  For all we know, Beck only wrote the letter because his bosses told him to.  He wasn’t about to apologize for what he’d said.  He almost never does.
