Conservative radio host Glenn Beck told CNN's S.E. Cupp that he would stand with the gay advocacy group GLAAD in the fight against the criminalization of homosexuality in Russia.
Beck said it’s ridiculous that Americans were so wrapped up in “Duck Dynasty” and the race of Santa Claus in December.
“What are you nuts? That’s the conversation we’re having?”
Meanwhile in Russia, he said, “last week one of their biggest stars on television said that homosexuals should be put into the ovens alive.”
“I didn’t think you could make the Holocaust worse,” he said, “but he’s like ‘Why the gas chamber? That seems a little too humane. Let’s put them alive in the oven.’”
“I will stand with GLAAD. I will stand with anybody who will stand up and say, ‘That’s crazy. That’s dangerous. That’s hetero-fascism,” he added. “And we’re talking about 'Duck Dynasty' Really? Really?”
Earlier this month, Beck told his radio show that it’s wrong for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden not to attend the Russian Olympics.
He said the real reason Obama isn’t attending the Winter Games in Sochi is because “you’re angry at Vladimir Putin because he schooled you and embarrassed you on Syria.”
Beck said, instead, they should go to the games and “at the last minute” walk into the stadium “arm-in-arm” with gay athletes.
