Media Matters for America, last week highlighted an unprovoked and xenophobic series of insults Glenn Beck lobbed at India, the Indian people, and Indian-Americans.

Now on Usain Bolt

But earlier in the same program, Beck again chose to dismiss an entire country, Jamaica, as well as one of its idols, Usain Bolt, the 23-year-old Jamaican sprinter who is currently the world’s fastest man – the World and Olympic record holder.

“Not only do I not know who this guy is,” Beck said while looking at a picture of Bolt holding the Jamaican flag, “I don’t even know what flag that is. It’s like a vacation country. Is that Jamaica? Does anybody know? Jamaica. Apparently he runs fast.”

Bolt set world records in both the 100m and 200m at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 before return at the World Championships in August this year to break them with runs of 9.58seconds and 19.19seconds in Berlin.

  1. I’ve read the article and I’ve even watched the video. Now althought I love Usian Bolt, and he would definatley be considered for man of the year, I would have to go with Obama. because of the impact that his election to office has had worldwide. not just among blacks, and not just in politics. Whats fascinating to me is that Glen Beck raises issue with of all things, the fact that he himself does not know Usain bolt, the Jamaican Flag or the country of Jamaica. Question Why is it important for Glen Beck to know something about something in order for it to be legitimate? Jamaica doesn’t know who Glen Beck is!

  2. glen beck who you be hello who the hell are you, you are clearly illiterate go and get your ged because clearly your knowledge of countries ect is off. even if you were home schooled or are trailer trash you must know what the are maps and flags ect

  3. Glen Beck is an ignorant talking head whose claim to fame is appealing to people who don’t seem to have clue that about being rude, and the responsibility of free speech.

  4. Glen Beck is a racist piece of shit crawling around inside rush limbaugh’s asshole, can’t see Jamaica from there.
