Glenn Beck to launch anti-'Glee' show10:30 am - 06/26/2012
Glenn Beck says he’s poised to destroy “Glee” with his own conservative, virtuous version of the hit TV show.
The pundit and former Fox News host outlined his next move in the crusade to defend family values during the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C. Friday.
Beck said that he’s appalled by ‘Glee,’ which tackles issues like bullying, teen sexuality and LGBT issues, but he’s also in awe of its success.
"It's horrifying some of the things that they're teaching high schoolers," the talk radio host said. "But it's brilliantly done. It's produced, brilliantly. Its music, brilliant. Its acting, brilliant. Its cinematography, brilliant. All of it!"
Beck is cooking up a plan to create a counter-Glee -- a show that's just as well-produced and enjoyable to watch, but that pumps out conservative values to the youth of America, without any "stereotypical conservative Lee Greenwood music," he explained at the conference.
Beck has said that all of the characters on "Glee" are "somebody that your kids want to be like," according to Billboard.
"Except everybody is sleeping with everybody else. There's no values. It's all self-gratification. It's a nightmare."
But the conservative culture-warrior has released few details about plans for the upcoming show, which Beck first alluded to Tuesday in an interview with Buzzfeed.
"We are working with a rapper -- I can't say who yet -- but my audience and his audience will say, 'What?'" Beck told the website. "We jokingly call this our Oedipus project because the left will be making out with me ... and they'll have no idea."
