Hey as long as the guy in the white house is not your political party, he must be wrong.


Not true.. Ill never forgive Bush for the Patriot Act, allowing torture and starting the DHS and thats just the short list.

I think Beck needs to.be on medication because he gets stranger every year. Is medication frowned upon in his religion? That would go a long way in explaining things.

And that has what to do with this topic?



Perhaps this; from the OP which is the topic I think ?



“But you said you were going to hunt down progressives like an Israeli Nazi hunter,” Beck immediately railed against his perceived enemies on the left.

“Oh, I will,” he assured her. “I think these guys are the biggest danger in the world. It’s the people like Mao, people that believe that big government is the answer, it always leads to millions dead — always.”


Maybe he meant something else?

It's not even socialized medicine really when it's still being funneled through privatized industries.
Even if it's within the political sphere, I'm still not fond of witch hunts because it can so easily become a slippery slope.

Beck sure became a hateful little troll, didn't he? He didn't start that way.


Not sure which Beck you were watching, but he has always been this crazy, hateful, and insane.

I have been listening to this fool, for entertainment purposes, for the past 5 years...this is not an outrageous statement for him.

So could you point out where Beck mentioned Communists? I see the word Progressives, but unless you are blinded by partisan lines Progressive isn't a synonym for Communist. Surely you aren't someone that is blinded by partisan lines are you? I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here against my baser instincts telling me the answer to this question.

In any case, you believe that since Communists have been responsible for many atrocities against their citizens that this warrants mass execution of the Progressives? I mean isn't that doing EXACTLY what the Communists did to their citizens? "Kettle, hello my name is Pot. Just letting you know that you are black"

Well, lets see here. Beck made his big TV intro at CNN headline on May 8th, 2006. I'd been listening to him for quite some time before that on Satellite Radio with his 3 hour morning shows at the time. He was still a mix of funny and serious when he hit CNN, I believe. By the time he left there, the darkness around him was starting to show ...and he lost himself down the hole of hate entirely while at Fox. I didn't stick around as a loyal fan long enough to catch his debut on what he created to follow Fox.

I know he's a punching bag and generally pinata for everyone sitting to the right side of Obama or even Clinton for politics...but I guess folks who weren't listening to him before he was ever a name on TV or well known like he is now will have to take it on faith. He really hasn't always been a fire and brimstone screaching preacher / activist / doomsayer. He once had a sense of humor which was actually funny! He did stupid prank call gags from his radio show like most morning shows do. He was political then, but NOTHING like now and it didn't define his show or him.

Now? Well, he's so far from who he used to be, it's hard to even explain it anymore. To be 100% blunt here? I look at Glenn Beck as a cautionary tale and clear warning to ALL of us. THAT is what happens to a man when all perspective is lost. THAT is what it looks like when you slip off the handholds and FALL down the rabbit hole, all the way down to the bottom. It's a dark place down there.

Mao ?

Wasn't he a communist ?

One of the biggest ?


and,


In any case, you believe that since Communists have been responsible for many atrocities against their citizens that this warrants mass execution of the Progressives?


Where did I say that ?

Looks like you said that !!

And where did Beck say "this warrants mass execution of the Progressives" ?



Progressive isn't a synonym for Communist


I never said that either, YOU did, and MAYBE (Maybe) Beck 'suggested' it. MAYBE

Well, you are the one who appears to be defending his words. Don't blame me for reading into like that. In other words, Beck makes a comparison to Progressives and Communists (kind of indirectly) and says that they should be exterminated. Then you defend those words. What else am I supposed to take from that? I mean did you really need to post statistics on how many people communists have killed over the years to put Beck's words into perspective? I'm sure we are all well aware of the atrocities that communists have committed over the years. It doesn't make what Beck said correct or even worth defending. Who cares what Communists have done over the years as it relates to this thread? This thread is about Beck suggesting that we murder all the Progressives.

Who's blaming YOU ?

And please professor, show us exactly where Beck says anything about "exterminating" or "murdering" anybody ?


and again YOU are somehow twisting all this into ME 'defending' Beck.

Here's my original post.....it was speculation now wasn't it ?
You can admit that. Instead of blowing the whole comment into outer space.

Pay attention to: ""But he might be worried about""



post by: post by xuenchen

Beck does get excited sometimes

But he might be worried about not-so-funny things like what's in this story....




Communist Citizen Deaths: 149,469,610

People’s Republic of China
Body Count: 73,237,000
Chairman Mao’s great leap forward starved almost 40 million alone (conservative estimate)

Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
Body Count: 58,627,000
Murder and forced Starvation and genocide of the Ukraine, Kulaks, and others who disagreed with Stalin’s Communist vision

The History of Murder and Starvation in Communist Countries


There's a long list.

 


Now please explain your 'logic' of adding words and assumptions and make it all sound like I said all what YOU said ?

Also note that is no 'edits' in the original post quoted above !!!!!!!

Wrabbit has put this into perspective here. This can happen to any of us and looking at our so called leaders or the MSM it's apparent. From Beck to Al Sharpton and many in between. Radicals are on all sides of us, both left and right. We really need to find a way through the middle.

Beck is brilliant....

He knows who listens to him, he knows exactly what they want to hear and he gives it to em.
His audience is primarily old white men that have a burr under their saddle and aren't to fond of black guys.
By looking at the products advertised on his show should tell you alot about the business model.
It's scripted, produced and delivered to play into the fantasies of the conservative geezer and reinforce their racism and fear of change. Add in a touch of fundamentalist Christianity to taste and you have the makings of a profitable show.... Brilliant!!!

"Progressives" is just Beck's scapegoat buzz word that he uses to fire up his listeners. How do you identify a "progressive" from anyone else?

American free enterprise media at it's best.

From the OP:


“But you said you were going to hunt down progressives like an Israeli Nazi hunter,” Beck immediately railed against his perceived enemies on the left.

“Oh, I will,” he assured her. “I think these guys are the biggest danger in the world. It’s the people like Mao, people that believe that big government is the answer, it always leads to millions dead — always.”


If Beck didn't imply he wanted to exterminate the Progressives, what do you think the above means he wants to do? Give all of them a hug?

So let me run through a chain of links and show how it is pretty easy to come to the conclusions that I did about your opinion (which you are trying to cleverly hide now, I already know how you really feel its not like this is the first thread I've seen you post in).

1. Beck says that we need stop dividing people into groups and love each other.
2. Beck immediately contradicts himself and says that we need to "hunt down progressives like an Israeli Nazi hunter" (I put his exact words since you seem to think that if he didn't directly say it then it wasn't the case even though his words imply exactly what I said he said)
3. Beck makes an indirect comparison between Progressive and Communists by speaking how Mao killed millions. He might as well have just called all Progressives evil Communists at this point... We all know what he meant, even though you are trying to argue otherwise.
4. You come into the thread and post statistics about all the atrocities Communists have committed along with this line: "But he might be worried about not-so-funny things like what's in this story.... "

So now I'm sitting here reading this and I think to myself, ok so Beck has to fear Communists. What does that have to do with Progressives? Now as I have stated before I am aware of your posting history. In fact I've even posted in your thread you made recently about letters being sent to the parents of fat kids where just about every reply you post in there has the word "commies" in it. And this is calling people who have the gall
to let you know your child is overweight and may need to lose some or be unhealthy a "commie." It doesn't take much more to put 2 and 2 together and see what you meant.

I mean at the end you appear to be pulling an Obama upon being called out on his BS, "Well I didn't SPECIFICALLY say that, so obviously I never meant it."

HOWEVER, I am also willing to admit being wrong and I may have made a brash assumption. Now if you honestly believe that Beck is wrong in what he says, forget the Communist angle and explain to me what he has to fear from Progressives.

edit: bolded the last paragraph to make sure you read it and hopefully answer it.

Or that once one group was made an example, the rest of you would learn to get along.....or you would simply be labeled 'progressive' and there by qualify for the same extermination process....

I have no idea whether Beck is right or wrong. Never said I did, you are making assumptions again !

What has Beck to fear from 'Progressives' ?

Don't know that either, and never said I knew.

But I suppose Beck did compare communists to progressives with the reference to Mao and said:

"it always leads to millions dead — always.” (Beck said that, I didn't)

So, that leaves us to solve the problem of what those differences are.

Communists are a subset of Progressives. Therefore not all Progressives are Communists. Therefore Beck is a hypocritical asshole. QED.

Well if you say so !!


I agree with your "Communists are a subset of Progressives" and "Therefore not all Progressives are Communists" idea.

Maybe that's why I just call 'em all "commies". Too hard to tell the differences sometimes.

They both tend to *hide* the similarities. Why I don't know. Fear of criticism and repercussions maybe. And sometimes they try to inject the idea that they may not be either one while pushing the agenda along undetected under the guise of something more popular to some people.

The Communists that are Progressives and the Progressives that are Communists are "commies". That IS MY opinion. You can quote me.

and Beck being 'hypocritical' ..... probably true. But he is selling his ideas for money.

Im with him on this one, they will be the eventual downfall of this Nation.
Theyve actually already set the wheels in motion by electing this pathetic excuse of a person
as the leader (hard to say that with a straight face) of this once great country.


Both parties will be the downfall of this nation. They have had control for the last 150 years and they have totally failed. To try to blame just one party for the shape this country is in is just a cop out for admitting your own parties failures.


funny quote by a notorious progressive on ATS please tell me im wrong i dare you

Calling Mao and Stalin communists, even if they did call themselves communists is a bit like calling John McCain a conservative, who happens to also call himself a conservative when he's actually an imperialist/authoritarian/interventionist (take your pick). See how this works?

What was your point in bringing "communist" dictators up anyway when the thread is about progessives being hunted like Nazi's?

Progressive is the new enemy of people that lack all rationale, that need a label and enemy when things aren't going they way they want in politics... it's lazy and frankly disgusting. If it isn't hard for me to say McCain is no Conservative it shouldn't be too hard to say Obama is no Progressive.
