Jilted Glenn Beck tells nation: "Philadelphia is not a place you want to be"

As noted here earler, this is the week that Philadelphia cleaned up its airwaves, purging Glenn Beck as well as Sean Hannity from the radio here. (Beck was also dumped in New York City.) The king of all far-right media supposedly had a soft spot for Philly -- it was living here and broadcasting from WPHT out on City Line Avenue that Beck built his nationwide radio audience in the early-to-mid 2000s.

But rather than me characterizing what Beck said about Philadelphia, listen for yourself:
