Today on his CNN Headline News show, Glenn Beck went on a rant against former President Franklin D. Roosevelt, blaming him for making the Great Depression “go on and on and on for a decade.” He then added:
I have to tell you, I said on my radio show today, I`m beginning to come to a place where I just — I love my grandfather, but I just want to slap himself across the face for liking FDR. I think that was one evil son of a bitch.
Chris Achorn at My Two Sense notes that “without FDR, people wouldnt be getting social security checks, and he led this nation during World War 2, and helped defeat both Hitler and Mussolini before his death in 1945. Beck is at odds with, well pretty much everyone.”
