Man Up, Beck!

If anyone he had attacked had been caught crying about being all butthurt in a public appearance, he'd have laughed and encouraged his listeners to do more and worse.
In case you missed the story:
“These people were some of the most hateful people I have ever seen,” said a distraught Glenn Beck this morning as he described an altercation he and his family had last night while watching a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in New York’s Bryant Park. Explaining that a group of people yelled at his family, took pictures of them, and kicked a cup of wine onto his wife, Beck said that his security team feels that, had he reacted poorly, things might have “gone off.”
So not only is he a thin-skinned coward...really, a security "team"? *snark*...but he took advantage of a government-provided park (with free Wi-Fi provided by a non-profit) to sit and watch a film for free, the socialist! (The movie was sponsored by HBO.)
Did he expect somehow that his presence would go unnoticed, even in NYC where celebrities have to fall all over themselves to try to be noticed?
And did he think he would be welcomed by cheers?
Poor little boy. Did you need a bandage for the boo-boo?
