*shoot democrats in the head*
This is totally not true.


Well I guess you have no choice but bury your head in the sand, right?
I mean who are the people Beck was referring to, Gingrich and GWB?

Who are you kidding?

I watch Beck, listen to the radio show, he did NOT SAY that.

He said nothing about *shoot democrats in the head*

This is libel!!

Actually he said exactly that. It's right there in the video in the OP's link, straight from Beck's mouth to your table.
Actually it is not what he said. He was warning princess pelosi and the dumbocrats that they may be in danger from the marxists that they have co-opted into their cause. He was warning that these "progressives" are angry and that they are calling for revolution. He was warning of the bloody revolution that they may be fomenting and saying that the dumbocrats might have to shoot the marxists but that the marxists might shoot back.

if you'd look at and read the various posts and links noted you would readily see that he was speaking To the dems and About the supposed 'radical' elements they've 'brought in' and/or 'garnered support' from ... not the other way around.

the video is purposefully edited in a manner designed to twist the context completely backwards of what it actually is/was.

Then you have hearing issues. He said, "shoot them in the head". And he wasn't talking about shooting Dem politicians in the head, he was talking TO Democrat politicians about the extreme radicals they have let achieve power in the party and administration.

This transcript of the show might help:

"Just because you in Washington and you who are so out of touch with life in the media, just because you don't believe in anything doesn't mean nobody else does. We do. You know why you're confused by this show? It's because I believe in something. You don't.

Tea parties believe in small government. We believe in returning to the principles of our Founding Fathers. We respect them. We revere them. Shoot me in the head before I stop talking about the Founders. Shoot me in the head if you try to change our government.

I will stand against you and so will millions of others. We believe in something. You in the media and most in Washington don't. The radicals that you and Washington have co-opted and brought in wearing sheep's clothing — change the pose. You will get the ends.

You've been using them? They believe in communism. They believe and have called for a revolution. You're going to have to shoot them in the head. But warning, they may shoot you.

They are dangerous because they believe. Karl Marx is their George Washington. You will never change their mind. And if they feel you have lied to them — they're revolutionaries. Nancy Pelosi, those are the people you should be worried about."

No, he's right. The people he was talking about have called for "bloody revolution" and in many cases have committed violent acts in attempts to foment revolution.

Regardless to whom he was talking, what is up with the violent rhetoric? Political assassination is completely incongruent with the tenets of democracy. Beck seems to be neglecting the strength of healthy debate in favor the most vile means to do politics.

Okay. I almost can't believe I'm saying this, but why are they making this news now? The country had its most recent awakening with this month's shootings in Tucson, and people are making an effort to be more careful about what they say.

Betcha Beck wouldn't say this today, or at least would thing very long and hard on it...so why rehash it? Sure, this was out of control and wrong to say, and people [i[did voice concern at the time, but most ignored it. However, now we have a new focus on this kind of potentially damaging and violent rhetoric, so can't we just start with a clean slate for everyone? I'm sure there will be more opportunities all around to call people out and hold them accountable about this kind of thing...in the moment. If they say it from now on, they own it. If you say it, own it!

Does going back and muddying the waters by rehashing past mistakes really help or prove anything? No. There are literally probably thousands of examples from the past out there. Ignore them? No. But let's focus on today and tomorrow and not get all hung up on reigniting old arguments that will simply still keep taking the focus off the real problems, issues, and priorities we face together as a nation. Same old bull, new twist.

How do you twist your brain around to come to that conclusion? That is not what he said at all. I guess doublethink is alive and well in your head.

You really need to read the full transcript from the link in my post.

'You are going to have to shoot them in the head.' -Glen Beck. You don't agree that this constitutes violent rhetoric? Are you suggesting that he was using this language figuratively?

Cenk Uygur is a lying left wing POS. Either that or he's a moronic left wing POS. At 3:13 in the video he flat out states that Glenn Beck is calling on his followers to shoot someone. The full transcript makes it clear that Beck is warning mainstream Democrats that the communist revolutionaries they have brought into their fold may very well bring them down not instructing his followers to do anything.

The left is done,done,they went way to radical and come 2012 the truth will out. Dont go away mad just go away. 'WE THE PEOPLE' will never let socialism,marxism,communism ever ever ever take hold in America,what has been done will be undone and for a very very long time. The left is sliding and the tea party is steamrolling growing ever stronger day by day,See ya leftys,hear Venezuala is nice, move there, your not welcome here.

2012 approaches leftys,be afraid,be very afraid, your movement is dead and dying every day,see you in Nov of 2012 because we'll be there, you can bet on it.

The statement that communist revolutionaries are brought into power is staggering by the depth of idiocy it brings into what was supposed to be a discourse.

Who are the bomb-toting, Rambo knife wielding folks on the Capitol Hill?

It just never stops to amaze me that people swallow that tripe from Beck, line, hook and the sinker.

He's a purveyor of social venom, vendor of fear and he's pretty successful in that.

He's rhetoric smacks of Hitler, especially that there is a swastika in the background in this video. That's how bad things start.

What the heck are you talking about?
Seriously?

What's radical in our lives?

You guys completely lost the compass of logic and perception of facts.

Epic fail, a face palm attack against Beck.

Not working. Taking peoples words and twisting them
into what you want them to be is ignorant.

Waste of time, NEXT!!

Waiting for the next attack you come up with
it happens almost everyday.

No where in the video did Beck say *shoot democrats in the head*

END OF STORY!

It may not be you "individually" its the entire Obama administration full of marxist extremists,way too radical for America. I stand by my predictions these policys will not be supported will not be tolerated. Fundementaly changing America is not an option,the constitution will stand,the Liberty will be preserved and thats all there is to it.
