Glenn Beck on Harvey Milk: You can concentrate on his homosexuality or his "communist roots" (AUDIO)
Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 10:49 AM by jefferson_dem
This morning, Glenn Beck discusses Harvey Milks murder. He contends, it had nothing to do with the fact that Harvey Milk was gay.

Heres an excerpt of that discussion, where Beck tries to argue that Milks political policies didnt really have anything to do with homosexuality.

After discussing Jim Jones, Glenn Beck turns to Harvey Milk:

At the same time, Harvey Milk, hes doing all the radical initiatives that he had going for him, which had nothing to do with homosexuality. You can concentrate on that, or that you can look at his communist roots.

Yea, thats right. Harvey Milk had nothing to do with homosexuality and his murder had nothing to do with Milk being gay.

Itd be easy to dismiss Beck as an idiot, but this is worse - this is willful ignorance and intentional distortion.

3. Yep, but people who call the favorite politician of Goldman Sachs a socialist
aren't much into making sense.

13. Yeah, I wish it, too. I have told some of them that I know he's not a socialist
because I am one myself.

That flusters them.

4. And I thought he was an independent businessman, how odd.
I guess Marxist petit bourgeois were rampant in the Bay Area at one time.

8. Indeed, he was the classic small businessman, someone the Repukes always look to for inspiration.
Unless you're gay, that is.

5. So, according to Beck, Milk was murdered because he was a communist
And calling Obama a communist would lead to what exactly?
Beck is inciting murder.

6. Buffoonish college dropouts like Glenn Beck call everyone smarter than them a "communist"
How this dipshit has a show is beyond my comprehension.

I guess being a "communist" includes helping pass gay rights ordinances, owning a camera store, running against government interference in private matters, being for support of small businesses and the growth of neighborhoods... oh wait, he was gay!

Glenn Beck... pure stupidity.

17. Don't know if Beck has any "nazi" roots, but wonder if millions strongly suspect
Beck would have fit right in and made the nazis proud. :P

20. Does beck make this shit up all by himself, or does someone write this shit for him?
Not that it matters.

Shit = shit, regardless who writes it.

21. Beck, we can concentrate on your ignorance
Or your racist roots.

Self-serving jerk.

22. In Beck's World, Anyone Who Fights For Civil Rights Is A Commie
It's a convenient dodge because it allows homophobes and racists to cloak their hatred in supposed patriotism. It's hard to truly and openly state why you hate Dr. King or Harvey Milk because doing so reveals you as racist or a homophobe, and in the light of history, it makes you look like out of date and ignorant.

So, instead, you call them commies and Voila! You have a perfectly legitimate criticism of them.

25. Beck is a Hate Monger...
He thrives on hate. The man has no HONOR. He is a bold face Liar. Right now he is in the spot light and can afford to yell the sky is falling, the sky is falling! Unfortunately too many people buy into his spew. The question is.. how low is he willing to go, to get ratings. How
much is he willing to allow happen due to his hate speech.

The man is vile, and disgusting and should be called on the carpet each time he makes such
outlandish remarks. The only question is, who will do it? 60 of his advertisers have dropped
him and he is still going strong.

Maybe draft a new Hate Speech bill, would be an answer. If Fox News got fined often enough,
maybe they would think better of letting him get more air time.
