Apparently he's an attack on our 'traditions'

(Newser) – Glenn Beck seems to think the new half-black, half-Hispanic Ultimate Spider-Man is part of some kind of conspiracy to change America. On his radio show yesterday, Beck groused about the change. “The new Spider-Man is really quite great, he looks just like President Obama,” he deadpanned, in a moment spotted by Media Matters. “Do I care if he’s half Hispanic, all Hispanic? No. Half black? I don’t care. I really don’t care. Half gay, all gay? I don’t really care! It’s a stupid comic book.”

“However, what I do care about,” Beck continued, “is the fact that I think a lot of this stuff is being done intentionally.” Then he played a clip of Michelle Obama saying that “We’re going to have to change our traditions,” which Beck views as a smoking gun of sorts. “I know this is just one small, stupid example but really? We now have a half-black, half-hispanic, gay Spider-Man?” For the record, Comic Book Resources confirms that Miles Morales is not gay.

I would be so embarrassed if I were a fundy. But I'm not, and I guess that explains why they aren't.

Beck is a scab on America's prolapsed colon.
