Glenn Beck Won’t Debate Van Jones

Two days after Van Jones invited him to a debate about “our values,” Glenn Beck took to his radio show to assault Jones’ record. Beck refused Jones’ debate challenge, claiming that Jones is hiding his true desire for a “violent overthrow for a Marxist government.” Beck continued his smears against Jones, comparing him to Mao, Che Guevara, and Joseph Stalin and saying the policies Jones supports — which Beck claims are communist — “only lead to death.” Beck once featured a telephone on his set and begged members of the left to call his show and debate the issues. Now that Jones has flipped the challenge on Beck, however, it appears he isn’t willing to follow through.
