In one of the weirder reactions to the race-fueled unrest in Missouri after police shot and killed another unarmed young black man, Glenn Beck says that if Obama doesn’t issue a call for stability, it could lead American companies to move overseas. He said this shortly before Obama issued exactly such a call.
“It’s absolutely unbelievable,” Beck said, “and especially if you look at it this way: the entire world is on fire, we have companies that are leaving America. Why are the companies leaving America? It’s too expensive for them to stay, but also I’m not sure if I’m going to bet on the stability of this place.”
“You add instability,” Beck lectured his staff, “you add riots on the street, more companies want to leave, more companies overseas say I don’t know if I should invest there. We’ve always been stable. The president has got to call for stability!”
Man, those morning staff meetings Beck has are just bizarre. His staff must just learn to put on a face to mask the WTF face they want to have listening to his stream-of-consciousness ranting.
