I am proud to say Glen Beck would call me a "socialist" or "communist." He uses that label for anybody who is left of Ghengis Khan on the political spectrum. This is what makes Glen Beck entertaining and a bafoon at the same time.

Glen Beck, like other political extremists, has conspicuously uses binary logic and lacks nuance in his reasoning. It is possible to question US counter-terrorism policies and not be an Al Qaida sympathizer. It is possible to support the health care reform bill and still believe in free markets and private property. It is possible to be a Black guy with a funny sounding name and be born in Hawaii.

I wonder if you're defending a guy who claims that his own show is garbage?


I'm defending - under the 1st Amendment - the right of anyone, Beck included, to have a show and speak their mind. I'm also defending the right of anyone else to watch Beck's show, or whatever they want on TV.


Personally, my political interests are geared towards the collective, and thus far, the collective are being swayed to believe misinformation and outright garbage.


The "collective"? At any rate, this is nominally still a free country and members of the "collective" are allowed to view whatever is served up by the media. You say "swayed", but that is totally an elitist viewpoint, as in they're all so dumb, but somehow you are not.



So, I wonder...are you active politically, or try to help others make a positive change...or do you sit on the sidelines and allow the madness to continue for the sake of sheer entertainment? Maybe that's the question you should ask yourself.


Been active politically, I would guess far longer than you. Long enough, at least, to have learned that I alone don't have all the answers for everyone else. Maybe someday, and with a little more experience, you'll also arrive at the same conclusion.


And...since you asked. Maybe the idea of an idiot political pundit without a conscience does scare me. Why??? Because of the fact that entire political movements, like the tea parties, hold Glenn Beck in the utmost of esteem. These are the same people who are starting militias and other dangerous movements that could powderkeg us into unnecessary violence and upheaval. Have you ever had that thought??? NOPE. Not relevant to someone who probably doesn't care...as you have eloquently stated.


Dissent is a part of our country and our history. You also need to understand that many of the people you are denigrating probably feel the same way about you and the people you place your beliefs and trust in. So who's right. Can it really only be you? Polls say there are in fact far more of them, so maybe it's YOU that needs to reconsider ...


And...what is it that you want for me to talk about that I haven't already stated? Glenn Beck says his show is garbage. Go read the link. I merely posted my opinion on this thread that agrees with Beck. So, since I am in agreement, I'm not sure what YOUR POINT IS.

Thanks for your comment.

Much love to all...

Said by Beck, but possibly taken out of context. I didn't see the video, and frankly don't care what Beck said. I do, however, care very much when people like you that seem to believe they can think and speak for everyone else wan to take away the rights of others to make their own choices.

Again, it doesn't get much more elitist than that.


Look who is getting hot under the collar???

I thought you didn't care...

Well, I think we've exposed the nature of your affinity to Beck. And now you think that Beck's statement was taken out of context.

Tell me...how do you take this statement out of context...


I have the worst show on Television.


Please intelligent one of reason and evolution...EXPLAIN THAT TO ME.

And as far as your last statement...

Again...I am agreeing with Beck wholeheartedly, and my first amendment right is provided and protected in that context. I agree with the man that you LOVE.

Much love to all...

Are you being racist now? Are you saying black people should only have certain names? What names would that be?

You liberals like to play the race card a lot, yet all that come out of your one track mind is what you preach against.

If Beck's show is so terrible and/or he's such a nut case, exactly why do you care? I would think any person - such as yourself - with such highly evolved reasoning capabilities, the kind that allows them to understand and explain such complex issues to the uninformed masses, would have absolutely no problem dismissing and/or ignoring Beck ...

... unless for some reason Beck actually scares the $--t out of you ...

Why, exactly, would that be?

Have you actually watched the show?

If the answer is yes, simply turn it off if it offends you. Tough for elitists to comprehend, but it's not your place to tell others what they should or shouldn't watch, or read, or listen to.

If the answer is no, then WTH are you talking about? Come back to us when you find out.



right back at ya re: EvolvedMinistry's thread. it shouldn't seem you should care, but oh, you do. one could take their own advice ... if you don't like what's being said, don't go read it, not your place to tell what others what to say or not say, yadda, yadda. my opinion is the op is, obviously, 100% correct.



[edit on Apr 23, 2010 by Hadrian]



Right back at you.

Please show me where I have said others should not read this thread or the posts on it. In fact, I'm defending the rights of everyone to do that AND watch Beck's show if they so choose.

Unlike the OP, I am NOT acting elitist like I have ALL the answers and no one else need bother trying to reason the issues out for themselves.

In away, however, many can also understand the OP's fear. After all, look what obama was able to accomplish in duping the masses.

I never called myself a "liberal." I just said I was left of Glen Beck. I am just saying it is possible for a person of African American heritage whose name sounds unusual to the typical American to have been born in Hawaii. Glen Beck seems to assume such a person must have been born in Kenya or something.

And thank you for illustrating the point of my post. In Glen Beck land, everybody that disagrees with Glen Beck is a "liberal" "communist" or "puppy kicker." It is not possible in Glen Beck's world to be a moderate or even right of center and still disagree with Glen Beck.

There was no racism in his statement. He was implying that the reason why Obama is getting so much heat is because of his color...or, American Racism, which still exists.

I'm sorry that your feelings are hurt, but, Glenn Beck said it...Not me. I simply agreed with Beck. Don't you agree with Beck??? Isn't that what this is all about??? What,... you can agree with him when he's loading your brain with lies, but, the minute that he says something that you don't want to hear you turn your back on it??? As a matter of fact, this thread wouldn't exist if Beck had not opened HIS mouth and revealed what millions have known all along.

His show is garbage and it has very little fact or research behind it. You can call me elitist all you like, but, I'm not the one making millions off of a show that has less value than Jerry Springer. I think you pointed the elitist finger in the WRONG DIRECTION.

Thank you...thank you very much...Huh!!!

I'll be here all week.

Much love to all...

Easy. Sometimes you have to actually see and hear someone say something to understand the context. You have to see the facial expressions and hear the tonality to fully understand whether he was being factual or sarcastic, or whatever. Is that a new concept for you?


And as far as your last statement...

Again...I am agreeing with Beck wholeheartedly, and my first amendment right is provided and protected in that context. I agree with the man that you LOVE.

[edit on 23-4-2010 by EvolvedMinistry]


Now you're attempting to put words in my mouth. Never said I love Beck and don't, in fact. Maybe it's YOU that's getting a little "hot under the collar"? I'm
.

What's next, name calling by you because you didn't get your philosophical way? That's unfortunately often how this kind of conversation plays out ...

Poor guy. You're really reaching aren't you.


It still doesn't change the fact that Glenn Beck has the WORST SHOW ON TELEVISION...in his own words.


Ahhhh...that's good stuff.

I new the name calling would show up, just not aimed at me (yet).

Anyone else see the irony of posting how wonderful it is to call someone a "douche bag", and then finishing the post with "Much love to all ..."?

Um yeah... I could actually see Glenn Beck being sarcastic about saying...


I have the worst show on Television.


Whew...

I have exorcised the demons.

Now now...no one wants to call you names...silly. Sorry, just kidding.

This isn't preschool, although, Glenn Beck's show is geared towards that age level. We won't degrade to that nonsense here...will we? And by the way, I didn't post the Glenn Beck douchebag slide. That was someone else. So, in effect, I didn't do the "namecalling."

And, much love to you, and everyone else...

Beck was being sarcastic. Do you really think that he believes his show is the worst on TV?


You are trying to provoke people by saying that his show is geared towards people at a pre-school level. Kind of trollish in my opinion.

Beck is an entertainer. He does bring up some good topics that nobody else seems to talk about. Sometimes he misses, sometimes he is right on target.

Free speech only applies to the left. If you deviate from what they want to hear, watch out.

A recent Cal Thomas article had this quote from Hillary back in the day talking about the Bush administration:

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘We are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.’” - Hillary Clinton.

I guess the same thing could apply now, could it not? As it stands, anyone that disagrees with the messiah is a nutjob, right wing moron or a racist.

Don't like Glen Beck? Tune in to Rachel Maddow. In the end, I don't think most people care what your television viewing choices are...

Feeling a liitle left out Cman?


Just holler if you need a second opinion or any second guessing.

Check out the recent Michael Moore thread if you want to see some name calling.


Toodles...kk

He is as stup1d as alex jones. He just steals ideas from others.

I notice this with these famous people, that people think are clever they are mostly not, and they just steal from others.
