Glenn Beck on Thursday said Michael Brown, the 18-year-old fatally shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, should have been named Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

In fact, Beck ridiculed Time's decision to name "Ebola fighters" the Person of the Year, saying "fighters" are not a person.

As Beck sees it, the reaction to Brown's death -- from the outrage in the media to the riots in the streets -- "says everything about this year that you need to know."

"In a nutshell, he tells you where America is," Beck added on his radio program.

Beck also asked his audience who they think should have been named Person of the Year.

One caller suggested Rich Weinstein, the investment adviser from Philadelphia who uncovered video after video of Obamacare "architect" Jonathan Gruber belittling the American voter. Another suggested Tim Ballard, the founder of Operation Underground Railroad, an organization that rescues children from child sex slavery.

Also nominated were Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Willie Robertson of A&E's hit show "Duck Dynasty," and historian David Barton for his work in combating Common Core.

"I nominate Jonathan Gentry," one caller said. "The reason why is because he's a healer. He spoke out against the violence in Ferguson, Missouri. And, plus, he seems like a really good guy."

Gentry is a black pastor who firmly denounced Rev. Al Sharpton and others he believes are fomenting unrest in Ferguson.

Community organizer and "Rules for Radicals" author Saul Alinsky, who argued that the ends justify the means and dedicated his book to Lucifer, was also nominated. As the caller saw it, his tactics are at work in Ferguson and across the political field with character assassination and unrest becoming the norm.
