It’s nice to see Glenn Beck finally hit back at the George Soros steno pool known as Media Matters for America. Media Matters, of course, is the left-wing character assassination factory that day in and day out smears conservatives. Its mission is to stamp out what it calls “conservative misinformation.”
Beck noted that the Huffington Post and Media Matters have been out to get him for a long time. Media Matters is this “George Soros leftist socialist kind of all of these people rolled up into one,” he said in front of one of his famous chalkboard flowcharts showing the connections between leftists and left-wing entities.
Media Matters has been tracking the progress of a pressure group’s campaign to get advertisers to dump Beck since he suggested last year that President Obama may be racist.
The extremist racial grievance group is called Color of Change. Its leaders were initially enraged when that Beck did several news packages on Van Jones, President Obama’s ousted green jobs czar who describes himself as a communist. Jones is a founding board member of Color of Change.
The group’s co-founder is James Rucker, a former MoveOn organizer. He is also a co-founder of the Secretary of State Project, the group that helped to elect Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie. Ritchie, a former community organizer who has worked hand in hand with ACORN, helped set the stage for Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to steal the 2008 Senate election in Minnesota.
