For Glenn Beck, paranoia is a lifestyle. The increasingly bizarre and peculiar FOX Noise TV personality who once called President Obama “a racist,” and who equated a bipartisan call for more volunteerism a “the road to communism,” has taken to traveling with an armed guard.
Guests at the preview of Broadway musical “Memphis” noticed Beck was closely accompanied — even to the men’s room, by a bodyguard with a gun partially concealed under his jacket.
Beck, who is obsessed with such themes as black helicopters, Chairman Mao and ACORN, is apparently now worried someone is trying to kill him too. A recovering alcoholic, Beck’s mother and brother both committed suicide and he has been close to suicide more than once in his roller coaster of a life.
