I wonder if I should start putting “enemy of mankind” in the box on my income tax return that says “occupation.” RWNJ radio host Glenn Beck just defined this term for us and are you ready? It’s “anybody with a journalism degree.” Wow. I used to contemplate setting fire to it anyhow, in this day and age of Trumpism, and now I guess I better before Glenn Beck sends his goons going house to house to do a diploma search.
“If you have a degree from any school of journalism, I don’t trust you. You have lied over, and over, and over, and over again. You are pointing everyone’s direction in the wrong direction.”
Well, see, Glenn, we do that to see what condition our condition is in.
“You are an enemy to mankind. You are an enemy to man’s freedom. What you have done will be remembered a hundred years from now when maybe, possibly — possibly, men are free again after what you have done, you will be remembered in not a kind way.”
Wow. I am the keeper of the mind forged manacles that William Blake wrote about? Just by virtue of having gone to J-school? Hell of a deal, that.
Glenn Beck does not trust anybody who graduated with a degree in journalism because they are "an enemy to mankind." pic.twitter.com/lBWcv3K4zz

Time for a poll: After listening to this, who is this month’s winner of the Michele Bachmann Batshit Award:
- Michael Caputo;
- Glenn Beck;
- Jerry Falwell, Jr.
- Anybody who votes for Donald Trump.
I wonder what I can do — if anything — to regain Glenn Beck’s trust? I know I won’t sleep tonight and possibly never again, knowing that I have incurred Glenn Beck’s disfavor.
And Zoomers, be mindful of the company you keep. If you’re reading this, it means you’re on a site run by a card carrying Enemy of Mankind. Journalists are the new commies. Start looking under the bed, there might be one hiding there.
My sense of this, is that Bob Woodward’s revelations did a lot more damage than right-wingnuttia wants to admit. And Trump melting down on ABC News last night at the town hall didn’t help either. They can’t blame Trump, so they’ve got to blame the journalists.
And don’t forget, “first they came for the journalists. But I was not a journalist, so I didn’t worry.”
