Glenn Beck: I was almost lynched in NY

While watching an out door movie at a New York Park Glenn Beck and family were verbally attacked by other moviegoers. While I have no sympathy for Glenn Beck himself I'm old school and where I'm from you don't bother a man when he's with his family. But of course Glenn Beck has to come with the hyperbole and compare the verbal abuse to be lynched? Read more below:

Beck, 47, said cinemagoers turned on him during Monday's screening of Alfred Hitchcock's "The 39 Steps." One person, he said, shouted "We hate conservatives here" and another yelled "We're in New York and we hate Republicans."

To top it off, one angry person purposefully kicked a cup of wine onto his wife's back, as others snapped photographs of him and his family, said Beck.

He likened the attack to a public lynching.

"'I swear to you, I think, if I had suggested, and I almost did, 'Wow, does anybody have a rope? Because there's tree here. You could just lynch me.' And I think there would have been a couple in the crowd that would have," Beck said on his radio show.

Beck decided against leaving, but said the crowd -- "some of the most hateful people" he has ever seen -- began to applaud as he exited at the end of the film.

"I have a right to watch a movie and enjoy a movie with my family in the park," he said.
