Beck, Twitter unleash on CNBC host’s ‘Mexican slur’ against Ted Cruz


CNBC’s Steve Liesman/Twitter

The Twitter-verse exploded at Glenn Beck’s request Wednesday morning with outraged conservatives tweeting under #NBCRaceCrimes.

Beck’s fury was directed at CNBC’s Steve Liesman who made a racial slur against U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz Tuesday, which besides showing his bigotry and bias, also showed Liesman is a complete fool.

While waiting for the September job’s report to come out Tuesday and preparing to blame Cruz for the bad numbers, CNBC showed a picture of Cruz, to which Liesman said, “There he is! Can we get some music to go along with that? Some Mexican music, maybe?”

Steve? Cruz is Cuban. But liberal, racist, bigots like Liesman don’t bother with stupid things like facts.

The Blaze, who reported the story, noted the absurdity of Liesman calling the September job’s report the “Ted Cruz jobs report:”

The host is presumably blaming the report’s poor showing on the partial government shutdown inspired by the Texas senator. However, the shutdown lasted from Oct. 1 to Oct. 16. The jobs report released Tuesday covers September.

Damn facts, again.

Beck took to the airwaves Wednesday morning and asked conservatives to tweet under #NBCHateCrimes.

    typical liberal stupidity and racism, only people like him can support this people. I am Cuban by Birth, American by Choice and I don’t listen to Mexican music. Go Cruz!

    So we are supposed to be outraged by this but not by Ted Cruz’s jokes about Nigerian scammers running the ACA website?

    1. HonestToAtee says:

      You are too dumb to realize that there is a nation called “Nigeria”, and that the people from there are known as ‘Nigerians”, and that for years there have been mail and phone scams emanating from there that try and get people to give them their banking codes to claim a cash reward for cashing a bogus check! YOU ARE A DUMB DUMB.

        What is it with you that can’t disagree with someone without calling them names? Are you 5?

    PC is more the uncommon twisted force of the will of some group with the intent to control another group… hence the term ‘political correctness’
    ie if you want a ‘correct’ standing with some political adherents then make policies that will promote your will and make it a social norm by intimidation, exclusion, and marginalization until the policies you are dying for will be accepted out of fear of losing acceptance by weak minded souls
    Political Correctness is merely a sneaky way to bully folks with a built in masking feature and will only work on the weak or herd mentality”… and boy do we see a large herd in America.

    They should just play the Canadian national anthem for Cruz. Catchy tune, not racist.
