    Glenn Beck is at war with World Wrestling Entertainment.

    This keeps getting better.

    I wonder if Glenn Beck realizes that professional wrestling fans are statistically more likely to identify as conservative? Think they'll be happy at his crusade for political correctness Conservative Truth directed against the industry?

    Glenn Beck turns down WWE invitation after anger over tea party characters | The Raw Story

    World Wresting Entertainment invited Glenn Beck onto the program Raw after the conservative radio host criticized the organization for creating characters that appear to be caricatures of anti-immigrant tea party conservatives.

    In response to the WWE’s invitation, Beck tweeted on Friday evening, “Unfortunately I am currently booked doing anything else.”

    In their YouTube video directed at Beck, characters Zebediah Colter and Jack Swagger begin with a promo in character — calling themselves “real Americans,” saying people in this country should only speak English, and claiming that Swagger’s defeat of character Alberto Del Rio, another wrestler, will “begin to set things right.”

    Then, breaking out of his Colter character, Wayne Keown said, “We are in the entertainment business. Everything we do as our characters is designed to tell stories. Right now the story we’re telling is that Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger are using the current, relevant, and topical story of immigration to target the WWE world champion Alberto Del Rio. Also a character played my my friend Jose Rodriguez. In our story, we are the antagonists, and Alberto is the protagonist.”

    “Glenn Beck, you recently referred to WWE as ‘stupid wresting people,’” he continued, going on to say that Beck was therefore calling 14 million viewers stupid.

    He also noted that 20 percent of WWE’s audience was Hispanic.

    Jesus bloody christ no one is at war with anyone.

    War has to be the most idiotically used word in American politics.

    Maybe not, but I hope he can be goaded into calling for some regulatory measure against the industry.

    There was a time when I thought Glen Beck made sense.

    No, because Beck also thinks there has to be a bad guy and a good guy. And he, of course, always has to be the good guy.

    Christ Jesus, I wish I knew how to get on somewhere as a Democratic media operative/dirty trickster. I'd make mountains out of this molehill.

    Oh please, make it a full three ring circus and have Sarah Palin come get into this sideshow.

    Taking pro wrestlers seriously reminds me of a great joke:

    A ventriloquist was making fun of rednecks with his dummy at a bar. Then an angry redneck stood up, rolled up his sleeves ,and yelled, "I resent that!"
    The ventriloquist started apologizing to the redreck.
    The redneck looked at him and said, " You stay outta this, I''m talking to the guy on your lap!!!!

    And if Beck had appeared the same Demos above this would be raging how he endorsed anti-Latino declarations.

    Just out of curiosity, where do you get your statistic about the politics of wrestling fans?

    He couldn't win the war with reality. I'm glad he has set is sights on a more suitable opponent.
