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.
