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.
