Summary: Cenk plays and breaks down a clip of SC Republican Congressman Bob Inglis being booed repeatedly by Townhallers for various statements, including when he eventually told them to turn off the Glenn Beck because of his fear-mongering. Also, Cenk finds a way to include Yoda's thoughts on the issue (yes, Yoda).

1. I have no idea who Bob is...but he sounds like a real conservative...not a neocon.
Now those rubes in his audience? Fucking insane bastards.

3. They've been kicking out any reasonable people from their party for years.
The funny/scary thing is, the ones that are left think they need to be more crazy and more right wing in order to win.

4. It's that 28-29% that will kill them.
As they move further to the right to keep them happy they make themselves irrelevant except as fanatics.

21. Interestingly enough....
they happen to think that 80% of the country agrees with him. I often discuss politics with somebody who is in that extreme fringe and he really believes that he is in the vast majory. Why? because all of his friends tell him so. His small circle of freinds happen to be Rush, Hannity, Beck and Mark Levin. I happen to listen to these clowns on a semi regular basis and it pisses him off beyond belief when I point out that all of his sources are these folks. The great thing is that I can actually cite the days and talk shows where he heard his facts. He is in a total fact free zone and convinced that he is 100% correct.... until I introduce a few facts into the picture.

30. I still wish I bet my Office Dittohead money about Obama taking his guns away.
He was so sure...and he still has his closet of firearms...I still have my single rifle as well. Nobody has tried to take them or the bullets they use away.

8. Most are incredibly ignorant rather than insane per se.
They have been whipped up into frenzies of fear over far-fetched fantasies that they are not equipped to recognize as such. You might as well call the stampeding bulls in Pamplona insane. They genuinely don't understand what is happening or what they are doing.

10. Animals are not capable of making rational decisions. Grown Men and Women are.
If they cannot then perhaps they should not be afforded the title.

33. Animals are perfectly capable of making rational decisions. Rabid animals
and sick, cornered fearful animals make much less rational choices though. All they do in those situations is react. These people aren't like other healthy species of animals; they're sick, deranged, and crazed by fear.

32. Most are just scared of biracial people with Muslim names
I really believe that racism is driving most of the nuttiness we've been witnessing. The nutters have absolutely no clue as to what they're raving about, but they know they won't be listen to if they scream the "N" word, so they substitute made up nonsense for their racist nonsense.

31. Bob is a traditional old school repug
which isn't far removed from modern day DLRers and "New Dems" like Obama. The rest of their party is hurling themselves off a cliff into the chasm of insanity!

9. Everything Cenk said falls on deaf ears....
These people operate out of the reptilian brain. The part concerned with raw survival and fight or flight. Limpballs and others speak to that.

11. "They don't know why they're afraid!"
Yes they do!

The man is BLACK!

I'm sorry but this is not playing the "race card". It's as plain as the broad nose on Obama's face. They can't tell you why they are afraid of Obama because it's not nice to yell the "N" word in public.

They don't care about Health Care. They don't care about the 4th Amendment. None of that stuff is on their minds most of their waking hours and none of their sleeping hours. They just want to get that darkie out of the White House. Like Evolution, he debunks one of their sacred myths: their entitlement and superiority because they have less melanin in their epidermis and came from Europe.


I'm Rinso white BTW.... all Scottish on both sides. I never met a black person who wasn't a maid or driver or yard man before I was sent off the Prep School. My father never worked under a black supervisor. And I can see this, clearly.

14. exactly!!!
They are pissed beyond reason that a black man is their president. Period.

They had no problems when bush and cheney wiped their asses with the constitution. They were eager to give up all of their rights in order to be 'safe' with someone in the white house who would stop gays from marrying. These people are the ones than enabled the last 4 years to take place.

Well said, AlbertCat. It's their plain, ugly truth that they will travel a million miles not to own.

they have no clue about the crap they keep screaming about. It's all a substitution for their racism.

12. The fear mongering has been going on
Edited on Mon Aug-10-09 02:20 PM by florida08
long before health insurance reform came up. Alex Jones,James Corsi are 2 that come to mind just on the web. Many believe World Net Daily is a real news outlet. The radio dominance is Limbaugh and of course tv is Fake News. They have all outlets covered with'round the clock doom and gloom for the already paranoid. Add some bigotry and fake outrage and you have the recipe for nihilism.

15. Inglis is what used to be called a mainstream conservative.
The term's mostly fallen out of use, because the GOP mainstream is the extreme now: Beck and Limbaugh fans. The far right has had Inglis in its sights for years and 2010 may be the year they defeat him in the primary.

18. And another sensible Republican is about to bite the political dust...
Advice to Bob Inglis: Abandon ship! Join the other party or go Independent. There's no reasoning with the reptile-brains in your party.

Let's ALL turn off Glenn Beck. Make him cry because no one wants to watch him anymore. :cry:
