But just because he hasn't been talking about it much doesn't mean he hasn't been hard at work fighting against it behind the scenes. In fact, on his program last night, he revealed that his network headquarters played host to a conference of anti-Common Core activists yesterday that was organized by none other than his best friend David Barton.
Featuring dozens of various right-wing activists, state legislators, education experts, and communications specialists, Beck's office hosted a day long conference designed to lay out a plan of attack that can be spread to Tea Party and 9/12 groups all over the nation as part of an national, coordinated effort to stop Common Core.
Beck has, in effect, turned his entire Blaze network into a public policy organization through which he is not only using his various radio and television programs to push his political agenda, but even using organizational facilities to coordinate and orchestrate a full-blown public policy campaign:
On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer claimed that if the Supreme Court strikes down the Defense of Marriage Act, "it will be too late for America" as every state in the nation will then be forced to legalize polygamy, incest, pedophilia, and bestiality.
"It will be, at that point," Fischer said, "too late for America. We will have become Rome; we will not be slouching toward Gomorrah, we will be bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed":
Recently, David Barton delivered his stock presentation at during a service at Whitesburg Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama where he once again falsely asserted that the Supreme Court banned the practice of requiring Bible reading in public school because it could give students brain damage, as well as the various other false claims that he routinely makes.
But, as he frequently does, he added in a few new bits of information; in this case, a pronouncement that Christians cannot drink Starbucks coffee because the company supports marriage equality.
"Biblically, there is no way a Christian can help support what is attacking God," Barton said, adding "I'm sorry, you've got to find some other coffee to drink. You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing. It's just a real simple principle":
Just the other day, Glenn Beck was complaining that there is some coordinated effort under way to label him a conspiracy theorist ... which was, itself, part of some conspiracy.
Last night, on his television program, Beck perfectly demonstrated just why he has developed this reputation.
For months, Beck has been claiming that President Obama was nowhere to be seen on the night of the Benghazi attack, oscillating between speculating that the president was intentionally being kept out of the loop or that he was operating off-the-record in order to conceal the truth about what was really going on.
Last night, citing a theory put forth by Charles Krauthammer, Beck said that the only phone call President Obama made that night was to the State Department in order to coordinate the message that the attack was motivated by an anti-Islam video posted on YouTube.
Beck went on to wonder if Obama has kept a personal Blackberry so that he can operate off-the-grid and not have to use White House equipment and leave any sort of recored, which then compelled him to ask "is [Obama] the origin of the video? Who was the origin of that video? Can we get the records of the Blackberry?"
On the most recent episode of his "Pray In Jesus' Name" show, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt expanded on his warning that passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act would be "the end of the world for Christian employers" by declaring that ENDA would require them to hire people who practice bestiality.
Claiming that since the legislation does not explicitly define what it covered by its language banning employment discrimination based on "perceived sexual orientation," then bestiality must be covered, Klingenschmitt warned that "the government is promoting a law that contradicts God's highest law" and that there is a "demonic spirit inside of [Sen.] Jeff Merkley" who is co-sponsoring the legislation:
