Andrew W.K. + Glenn Beck
In his column last week Andrew W.K. advised a young man with a right-wing asshole father how the two could get along. The answer is lengthy, and, as nearly all of Twitter has pointed out by now, SUPER DUPER INCREDIBLE AND HELPFUL OMG THANK YOU ANDREW YR BRILLIANT. You are perhaps already familiar with this drill: Andrew fields these very-hard-to-answer questions and somehow knocks them out of the park week in and week out. It's quite a thing to behold, and last week's advice to this kid spoke a forgotten truth so fundamental it moved a lot of people, making it go hyper-viral. One of the people it moved was conservative media mogul Glenn Beck, who promptly invited Andrew onto his show. Andrew being Andrew, he accepted. What happened next will blow your mind.

The two had a civil conversation! And, much to Glenn Beck's credit, he didn't try to politicize the column or bend the intent of Andrew's answer to the will of his own views, like, say, The Daily Caller and some other conservative sites (links below). Save for an awkward aside where Glenn asked Andrew about his views on abortion -- which he pulled context-free from Andrew's column in April about eating meat -- it's really quite sweet.

Glenn was first made aware of Andrew's column (and Andrew himself) on Friday of last week, when he read the letter live on air and then said this about it:

Glenn then extended the invitation to Andrew to be on the show. Here's his appearance from yesterday:

Andrew was also on Cavuto last night:

And here's how the Conservative blogosphere reacted to Andrew's column:

"Liberal Kid Whines About Right-Wing Dad - Advice Columnist Tears Kid Apart" on Eagle Rising

"Glenn Beck Finds a 'Really Good Sign' for the Future in an Unlikely Place" on The Blaze

"Another Reason to Love Andrew W.K." on Breitbart

"Columnist SLAMS Liberal Kid Complaining About His Dad's Right Wing Politics" on The Daily Caller

"Super Party-Boy Has Advice for Young People with 'Right-Wing *ssholes' for Parents" on Ace of Spades HQ

Be kind to one another.

Glenn Beck is such an ass.  How about starting with accepting the HUGE role he's played in the politicization of so many of our problems.

I think Andrew speaks from the ground, a place where many of us have little sight of today, being wrapped up in commercialization and not human nature as we especially are. But I also unfortunately know that Glen Beck and co. are trying to siphon some support from Andrew's youthful audience, a very strategic position indeed; and I feel this way because Andrew's message is so tremendously regular, even ordinary in the philosophic sense, that the imbalanced of the population feed off his messages like camels do at desert wells.

Beck was the gas that got this going, don't trust him as far as I could throw him.

I'm sure this was great, but I cannot get past Beck's asinine Ben Franklin glasses. Sorry, can't get with the loving on this right-wing a-hole. Not today.

Beck is an idiot, a hate-monger. A shame to any U.S. citizen.

@BMNeal yea, politicizing what is that again?  he's not a political figure.  he's an talk host.  he's an entertainer.  he's right about most things and is proven way too often correct for you to even attempt to nay say this guy.  name one thing he has politicized.  you can't.

left leaning a holes is what is destroying this nation.  progressives are the evil that is tearing this nation apart for reasons of power and control.   yet, you attack an entertainer and grant him the power.  how ignorant are you?

this holy man is no hate monger.  the shame comes from ignorant liberals who are clueless that the evil that exists, the hate that exists, lives in the White House.
