GUESS WHICH RIGHT-WING TALKERS ARE CARD CARRYING MEMBERS OF THE AFL-CIO

February 25, 2011

If you’re a fan of Glenn Beck’s radio or tv shows you’ve probably heard him bash unions. Thursday, Beck accused AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka of being part of an international communist conspiracy to take over the world. While accusing Trumka of trying to take over the world, Beck at the same time is paying union dues-TO TRUMKA AND THE AFL-CIO.

Beck is a card carrying member of AFTRA (The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.) AFTRA is a division of the AFL-CIO.

Who else is a member of AFTRA? RUSH LIMBAUGH, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, and Sarah Palin. Union members all. It’s how Sarah Palin can get residual money from her reality tv appearances. It’s also how people like Beck and Palin can obtain health insurance and make sure networks honot their contracts. They also provide technicians for all of Beck’s tv appearances as well Hannity and the others.

On another note, even the crazy Infowars dude is now hilariously accusing Beck of not only of ripping him off but doing so in an attempt to take over the world. That’s right, Glenn Beck is part of the One World government takeover. Alex Jones now says Beck’s whole UN and anti-Google schtick was completely stolen from him.
