The Director of Glenn Beck’s Favorite Movie Compares The Tea Party To Hamas: It Needs to be ‘Eliminated’

Glenn Beck has frequently said that Rob Reiner’s “The Princess Bride” is one of his favorite movies.


While Beck may like some of the movies made by the Hollywood heavyweight, it is unlikely that he will find common ground with Reiner on the subject of the Tea Party.

Reiner recently appeared on Larry King’s Russia Today television program, “Politicking with Larry King.”

King spoke with Reiner about the death of Robin Williams, Hollywood’s influence over pop culture, and the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel.

During the discussion about Israel, Reiner was quite clear about his belief that Hamas must be eliminated. He then went on to compare Hamas to the Tea Party, stating, “anytime you’re dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and the way to do it is to eliminate it.”  Reiner went on to clarify that “elimination” of the Tea Party would require a political solution, adding, “you have to wait till 2020 to redistrict, but that is really tough stuff.”
