Conservative radio host Glenn Beck has
said he's creating a show to compete with the Fox musical-comedy
Glee, which he has described as a “horrifying” liberal
Glee's numerous gay characters
has earned it the nickname “The gayest show on television.” The
show includes a gay male couple (played by Darren Criss and Chris
Colfer), a lesbian couple (Naya Rivera and Heather Morris), a
formerly closeted football player (Max Adler) and a transgender
student (Alex Newell). Other secondary characters are also gay, such
as Rachel Berry's (Lea Michele) two dads.
Beck last year launched GBTV, which he
has described as a network further to the right of Fox News.
Speaking at the Faith & Freedom
Coalition conference on Friday, Beck relived a night in 2011 when he
watched in “horror” at the high-production values of Glee.
“I mean, it's horrifying some of the
things they are teaching high-schoolers. But it's brilliantly done.
… And I said [to my wife], this was a year, year-and-a-half ago, we
lose. There is no way to beat that.”
Beck called his conservative project
“the Oedipus Project” because the music will be so good that “the
left will be making out with [him].”
