Beck has himself ruminated on the possibility of assassinating a public figure. As Media Matters for America has noted, on the May 17 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program, Beck said he was "thinking about killing [filmmaker] Michael Moore" and pondered whether "I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it," before concluding: "No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out -- is this wrong?"

Glenn Beck, June 2, 2006:

On the June 2 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, CNN Headline News host Glenn Beck accused "liberals" of wanting to "rape" illegal immigrants by "hav[ing] them pay into Social Security" without "allow[ing] them to get any of those funds back." In fact, when the Senate considered an amendment by Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) that would have prevented newly legalized immigrants from receiving credit for Social Security benefits for work done as illegal immigrants, Democrats overwhelmingly opposed the amendment, while Republicans strongly supported it. In the May 18 roll-call vote, 38 of the 44 Senate Democrats voted to table the Ensign amendment, while 44 of 55 the Senate Republicans voted to keep the amendment under consideration. Sen. Jim Jeffords (I-VT) also voted to table the amendment, and Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV (D-WV) did not vote. The amendment was tabled by a 50-49 vote, effectively killing the measure.

CALLER: I've had some co-workers -- they believe that the government doesn't want us to check because they want the money to get paid into the Social Security fund by people who will most likely never collect on it.

BECK: They -- wait a minute, hang on. You know what, I gotta tell you something. This one kills me, because a lot of the people who make this particular argument, they're like, "Hey, man, they're [illegal immigrants] actually helping Social Security." Those people who make that argument usually are the liberals. And I hear that, and I think, "What kind of evil?" You call me evil? You know, "Those evil, heartless conservatives." You're saying, "Let's screw the illegal alien. Let's have them pay into Social Security, and then rape 'em. Never allow them to get any of those funds back." My gosh -- and I'm the evil one.

Glenn Beck, May 9, 2006:

BECK: First, a new poll is suggesting that American support for illegal aliens has fallen in recent weeks. No! I have no idea if it has anything to do with last week's boycott or that truly awful Spanish version of "The Star-Spangled Banner." I mean, forget where you stand on immigration, as a music fan, you should have been offended. The song sounded like Enrique Iglesias was throwing up on a mariachi band and then recorded it. I'm just sayin'. But here's some free advice for the illegals: Asking for rights and demanding them are two different things. I'm sorry, but I mean, to a lot of us, it felt like you were doing the latter. I mean, you shot yourself in the foot. See, America is kind of like a big pizza or, you know, in this case, a, you know, big quesadilla. If I order a quesadilla, I'll gladly give you a piece. But don't grab the whole thing and say, "It's mine!" I mean, it seems like America's response to your whole "one continent, this country's really ours" shtick? Not so much. You know? The bottom line is I'm pro-immigrant. I think everybody I know is pro-immigrant but anti-illegal activity. We want you to come here, we want you to bring your culture here -- melt with ours. You make us stronger. Just don't try to conquer our culture. I mean, I enjoy a tangy salsa -- no, I do, but that doesn't mean I'm ready to abolish sour cream. You need both ingredients for the perfect quesadilla. And you can't spell "quesadilla" without "USA." Wish I was wearing a flag pin. I think the illegal immigrant movement has really hurt itself with the protests. And here to remind me that "illegal" translates into "illegál" in Spanish is Gustavo Arellano. He is the writer of OC Weekly "Ask a Mexican." Hello, Gustavo.

...

BECK: The problem is, is a lot of people get the feeling that -- you know, America is a country, it's kind of like a big living room, man. You come on into my living room, I want you to hang out with me. You know what I mean? But don't come in and then just pee all over the carpet and say, "Hey, this place is mine. This is my couch." I mean, I invited you in. Now come on, be a part of the family.

May 8, 2006:

Even though Beck asserted during the interview that he has "no problem with immigrants coming in" to the United States, Cooper neither noted nor asked Beck about comments he has recently made regarding illegal immigrants, Mexicans, and Mexico.

For example, as Media Matters for America has documented:

Commenting on immigration protests, Beck stated that Mexico "is a country that has been overtaken by lawbreakers from the bottom to the top. And now, what you're protesting for is to have lawbreakers come here."

Responding to criticism of his remarks on immigration protests, Beck claimed "[I] pretty much stand by" the assertion that "Mexico is run by nothing but criminals."

Regarding immigrants entering illegally from Mexico, Beck said that either "they're terrorists," "they're escaping the law," or "[t]hey can't make a living in their own dirtbag country."
