What Glenn Beck and Chris Matthews Have in Common – and Here’s Some Sponsors!


The opinions expressed herein are those of the author, and not necessarily those of The New Agenda.

We are currently gathering a list for action against Glenn Beck. Our fight against sexism continues. We defend women of all parties, and we protest against sexism from all parties. The sexism is nearly identical across the board. Let me share some similarities with you.
On November 7, 2008, Chris Matthews described Hillary Clinton as giving a

“barn-burner speech, which is harder to give for a woman; it can grate on some men when they listen to it — fingernails on a blackboard.” When contemplating Clinton debates, he asked, “How does she do it without screaming? How does she do it without becoming grating?”

glennbeckBeck said similar:

“Hillary Clinton cannot be elected president because … there’s something about her vocal range,” and went on to say, “There’s something about her voice that just drives me — it’s not what she says, it’s how she says it,” adding, “She is like the stereotypical — excuse the expression, but this is the way to — she’s the stereotypical bitch, you know what I mean?”

On the other hand when Chris Matthews who is well-known for his leg tingles came to view Hillary Clinton as a stripper, he praised her,

“didn’t you think she had a nice, mellifluous voice there? She was calm, she was charming, her hair looked just to be cosmetic, her hair looked great, she looked great.”

Just like Chris Matthews, Glenn Beck also has leg tingles. While an anchor on CNN, he told co-worker Erica Hill that she looked “hot in leather” At first, she regarded it as a simple compliment but became increasingly uncomfortable until his tingles took control:

BECK: You are looking hot in leather.
HILL: Well, thank you, Beck. I’ll be on your show every night just for that.
BECK: Oh, yeah! I’m wearing leather pants right now —
HILL: That’s more information —
BECK: Oh, no, I’m not wearing pants.
HILL: OK, that was definitely more information than I needed.
BECK: What did we have in the news today, Erica?

Given his uncontrollable leg tingle with Erica Hill, we can easily infer what was truly happening in his mind when he referred to Sarah Palin as “One Hot Grandma” in their first interview on his Fox TV show.
Exactly as with Chris Matthews flipping over Hillary Clinton, Glenn Beck flipped around the sexism from viewing her as a sex object to an irritating annoyance.

Beck-Palin, I’ll consider. But Palin-Beck…Can you imagine, can you imagine what an administration with the two of us would be like? What? Come on – she’d be yapping or something, and I’d say, ‘I’m sorry, why am I hearing your voice? I’m not in the kitchen.’

Feminist-friendly “masculinity has always been disturbing to the anxious idiots of the punditry, who think that manhood is such a fragile thing it has to be constantly propped up by stomping on women.”
