Glenn Beck is using an armed bodyguard, according to the New York Post's Page Six.

The Fox News host who distrusts the government, has called President Obama a racist, and regularly stokes fears of a communist conspiracy, apparently attended a the Broadway musical Memphis the other night with an armed guard in tow--even to the men's room.

There are no public reports of violent threats against Beck, though Beck has previously joked about hurting others. In August, Beck pretended to poison House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The Page Six item about Beck is titled "Take No Chances."

Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. owns both Fox News and the New York Post.
