The Week reports:
“I want to have a frank conversation with you,” commentator Glenn Beck, 56, said on his show Tuesday, the latest conservative to paint the coronavirus lockdowns in terms of life versus liberty.
“I would rather have my children stay home and all of us who are over 50 go in and keep this economy going and working, even if we all get sick. I would rather die than kill the country, because it’s not the economy that’s dying, it’s the country.”
Beck, like Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) on Monday night, is presenting “a false binary, and a distraction,” Christopher Hooks writes at Texas Monthly.
When he says “I” he means of course “you” https://t.co/3hoSO9BMZF

Give me a break. This selfish turd would rip a ventilator away from a nun if he developed a dry cough. https://t.co/H0N1BRIDeZ

Glenn Beck would rather “die than kill the country”; he thinks all people 50 years and older should return to work.
You do you, Glenn. https://t.co/4ZmD2isJCt
