Glenn Beck: Firing 'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn was no 'win' for conservatives

Glenn Beck

In a low road tactic cut straight out of the liberal playbook, several conservative sites dug up old tweets by 'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn in which he made jokes about pedophilia and rape. Walt Disney Studios subsequently fired Gunn -- a move widely celebrated as a 'win' for the Right.

The smear was in retaliation for the filmmaker's part in shaming Ben Shapiro after director Mark Duplass' tweet which suggested that “fellow liberals” might "consider following @benshapiro for an honest look at the conservative viewpoint. Catch up on the backstory here.

On Saturday, Glenn Beck tweeted his support for Gunn, pointing out that the right to free speech must apply even to speech we don't agree with -- and that goes for both sides.

Predictably, the mob then turned on Glenn.

Catch Glenn’s reaction in the clip above.
