In a convergence that’s either beautiful or terrifying, Glenn Beck will be appearing in Teton Valley, Idaho, over July 4th weekend, while the rock band Widespread Panic plays a concert at The Spud.
The Faux News psycho pundit and hate-spewing hero of the Tea Party movement is “headlining” the community’s Fourth of July festivities, according to the Valley Citizen.
Huntsman said Beck will be speaking on the evening of July 3 after a performance by the BYU-Idaho Symphony Orchestra at the driving range on the development’s grounds on the west side of the valley in Driggs. The event will be free and open to the public.
Huntsman said that Beck’s performance as planned will be “non-political” and that Beck, who has been to Huntsman Springs on several occasions, wanted to celebrate the Fourth of July in a small town.
Beck being “non-political” is about as likely as Widespread playing a set of Vienna waltzes.
What’s really scary is the Teton Valley Chamber of Commerce and Huntsman think this is a fun idea for Fourth of July. So much for the fall of the Spud Curtain in Driggs and Victor.
A recovering alcoholic and drug addict who converted to Mormonism, Beck ought to get a kick out of the Widespread scene. Freedom for all!
