Glenn Beck Says He Was Nearly Lynched in Bryant Park

Glenn Beck just wanted to take his family to an Alfred Hitchcock movie in Bryant Park on Monday night, but hateful hecklers ruined everything. Onlookers at the summer movie event slung jeers at and took pictures of Beck and his family. One person kicked a glass of wine over onto his wife's back. Apparently, the movie-goers did not like seeing conservatives in the crowd.

"These were some of the most hateful people I have ever seen," said Beck on his radio show Tuesday. "All I wanted to do is go out on a blanket with my family and have dinner in the afternoon sun and sit around Americans--not like-minded Americans--and watch a movie in the park."

Beck says he went to the public screening against his better judgement because his daughter wanted to. Despite his being with his family, Beck insisted, the crowd was unrelenting.

"I swear to you," Beck continued. "I think, if I would've suggested, and I almost did, 'Wow, does anybody have a rope? Because there's a tree here. You could just lynch me.' And I think there would have been a couple in the crowd that would have."
