Glenn Beck Attacks Bob Costas: ‘You Sanctimonious Piece of Crap’

Oct 15, 2013  •  Post A Comment

Glenn Beck attacked veteran NBC sportscaster Bob Costas, unleashing a verbal barrage after Costas aired a commentary that was critical of the Washington Redskins’ team name, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.

During Sunday’s telecast of the NFL game between the Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys, Costas pointed out that many people would be offended if a team was named after a nickname for an ethnic group. "Ask yourself what the equivalent [of Redskins] would be if directed toward African Americans, Hispanics, Asians or members of any other ethnic group," he said.

Beck "unloaded" on Costas on Monday, the Times notes.

"You sanctimonious piece of crap," Beck said. He also called Costas "senile" and "wildly arrogant."

"Why is it that all white people think they have to correct all the ills and protect everybody else?" Beck asked.

The battle between Beck and Costas’ positions is part of a larger discussion about the team’s name, with President Obama saying that he would think about changing the name if he owned the franchise, the piece points out.

Here’s a clip of Costas’ commentary:


  1. Beck “unloaded” on Costas on Monday, the Times notes. “You sanctimonious piece of crap,” Beck said. He also called Costas “senile” and “wildly arrogant.”
    Wow. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black…

  2. You are so right Scott…it’s exactly what Republicans and trash like Glenn Beck have been preaching for years!

  3. Can’t stand Beck but on this I agree with him – who needs a lecture on ethnic/racial matters or gun control from a bubblehead sportscaster.

  4. Apparently the owner of the Redskins needs the lecture from someone. But, as with most “monied” people, you can’t tell them anything because money means they are smarter than you and they can lock their gate and don’t have to listen.

  5. Can’t stand Beck either but Costas is not far from the “can’t stand” list. People watch Sunday football to watch Sunday football. And take a break from the crap that fills up a long week of political news, children being kidnapped, hit and run drivers killing pedestrians and anything that consumes the lives of viewers who get sick and tired of hearing stories about the government shutdown and the debt ceiling.
    This clown Costas should not take ond day of entertainment and ruin it with such politicized crapola. Hear this NBC, please don’t take away a few hours of entertainment for political purposes and please stop feeding has beens like Glenn Beck more ammo to stick in his background unchecked gun.

  6. The team began as the Boston Braves in 1932 and changed their name to Redskins in 1933 because they moved out of the Braves Stadium. Why is it now a problem 80 years later. I think a much more despicable name for a team was the Washington Senators. Especially the Democrat variety! Go Beck!

  7. Eve, thank you for reminding me that all women should be pregnant and kept in the kitchen. That is just as true as the fact that “Redskins” is a non-offensive word, You obviously believe that, so for all of our sakes, I hope you are pregnant and being kept in the kitchen, which is where you belong!

  8. Beck is correct. Typical of liberals creating a fake controversy to take everyone’s eye off the real issues. Lone Star Dietz is crying.

  9. I’m starting up a new internet website directory and was wondering if I can submit your website? I’m trying to grow my directory slowly by hand so that it retains top quality. I’ll make sure and put your blog in the best category and I’ll additionally use, “%BLOGTITLE%” as your anchor text. Please be sure to let me know if this is ok with you by e-mailing me at: %EMAIL%. Thanks
