Protesters and supporters of Glenn Beck crossed paths outside of Safeco Field where the controversial Fox News anchor spoke at an event sponsored by the Evergreen Freedom Foundation.

 

 

In a sea of 7,000 fans, controversial TV and radio talk-show host Glenn Beck took his crusade to Safeco Field today, saying he is the voice of reason in a divided America.

“I am a flawed human being,” said Beck, 45. “But I’m in a position to ring the bell of warning.”

Beck, sponsored by the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, came to Seattle amid a torrent of anger over his proclamation on July 28 that President Obama was a racist and that he believed the president has a “deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”

Outside the stadium, about 30 protesters rallied against Beck.

Beck didn’t criticize Obama in his hourlong talk, and spoke more about how both political parties are flawed. “We send these people to Washington and they go crazy on us,” said Beck, as his supporters cheered and waved yellow flags with the words “Don’t Tread on Me.”
