In a blistering monologue aimed at talkshow host Oprah Winfrey, Glenn Beck skewered the billionaire on his Friday radio show for doubling down on her comparison of Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till.
In an appearance on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Winfrey said “the truth of the matter is Emmett Till became a symbol for those times, as Trayvon Martin has become a symbol for this time.”
Beck responded in a passionate monologue Friday.
“Here’s what Oprah Winfrey doesn’t understand,” said Beck. “That is a made-up symbol. All of the facts, all of the facts show that Trayvon Martin is not Emmett Till. All of the facts show that race played no role in this… at all,” Beck said.
“You disgust me,” Beck continued. “Why are you telling everybody else they can’t make it? Why are you telling us that white people are the problem?”
“Oprah, I’m sorry to point out to you, people are the problem. Doesn’t matter what color they come in. Scumbags come in all colors.”
Earlier this month, Beck devoted a segment to what he called Oprah’s “offensive” comments saying the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till are the “same thing.”
“These are two cases that have nothing in common,” Beck said then. “I can’t think what they have in common, honestly.”
