For Glenn Beck, SEIU is ‘radical, marxist,’ except when its nurses treat him for appendicitis

If Beck were true to his convictions, he’d have left the Marxist hospital and prayed at home for a cure. More from Alternet:

Earlier today, a hospitalized Glenn Beck tweeted in praise of the “AMAZING drs/nurses” who have cared for him since the emergency removal of his inflamed appendix yesterday afternoon.

The quality of care he is receiving should not have come as a surprise. When Beck complained of acute abdominal pain during his radio program on Wednesday, he was rushed to a nearby hospital. The security-conscious Beck has not disclosed the name of the facility, but it’s a safe bet that it is staffed by proud members of a storied union: New York’s Local 1199, aka United Healthcare Workers East, which belongs to the Service Employees International Union. The SEIU has organized all of Manhattan’s major hospitals, including every facility to which Beck could have conceivably been sent….

Just hours before his hospitalization, Beck was at work increasing the pitch of his attacks on SEIU and its leaders. On Monday, he warned his Fox News audience that SEIU president Andy Stern is “controlling our country.” On Wednesday, he claimed Stern was spouting “communist, Marxist propaganda” by addressing the need for labor to organize globally in a globalized world.
