Glenn Beck: New Spider-Man "Looks Just Like President Obama"

Glenn Beck loses his cookies over the idea of a blatino Spider-Man, whom he says "looks just like President Obama."

Beck explains this geek redistributionism by playing a clip of a Michelle Obama quote from 2008(!) saying "Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we're going to have to change our traditions, our history; we're going to have to move into a different place as a nation." Isn't it obvious she was talking about Marvel introducing a blatino Spider-Man? Or the Affordable Care Act? Or whatever generic threat to Real America conservatives are railing about on any given day?

Beck doesn't actually read comic books; he calls them "stupid." It's just that the story is irresistible, because it reinforces his grand narrative of the Obama administration, which is one in which black people keep taking white people's hard-earned stuff. Now they're even taking your superheroes! When are you going to wake up, America?
