Glenn Beck, to an audience of high school students: Who has been taught that the Declaration of Independence is irrelevant, that it plays no role in today’s society? That it’s an old, dusty document?
(One student raises a hand.)
One. Anybody else? How about the constitution, that it’s just, uh, a relic?
(Two hands go up.)
A couple? You have Anthony? By your teacher or by media, or what?
(Student’s answer inaudible)
The former president…?
What I find interesting about this clip is what it reveals about Beck. He actually believes his own crap. He was apparently expecting a forest of hands to go up when he asked how many of the students had been taught that the DoI and the Constitution were meaningless. Kudos to “Anthony” for putting Beck in his place.
