Glenn Beck (Right Wing Watch)

No, seriously: Why is Glenn Beck mocking women who have experienced sexual assault and violent harassment?

Please put Glenn Beck in a dumpster and then put that dumpster in a dumpster

What is going on in Glenn Beck's baby man garbage brain this week? Beck is always very, very terrible, but he is on something of a tear right now trying to minimize violence against women and girls. After a segment mocking rape victims was posted to the Blaze, Beck personally turned his outrage to the women who shared their experiences of harassment and sexual violence through #YesAllWomen.

Not to get all pearl-clutching here, but what possible kind of person could respond with such disdain to the women sharing these stories? It is genuinely baffling to me. I really do not know what else to say about it. He reads a tweet from a mother who says that she has tried to teach her daughter "how not to be raped" with a sneering, "Boy, that must be fun." What a nightmare Glenn Beck is. Please put him in a dumpster and then put that dumpster in a dumpster.
