2. Just when you think he couldn't possibly get more disgusting...
How much time did he spend in the Marine Corps, I wonder? Or any kind of military service? None, maybe? I hope the military folks blast his ugly ass.

26. How 'bout let the Marines do him (and co-host)? :-)
Iraq Veterans Against the War site: http://ivaw.org

Send the vid to them.

I'm sure they will let him continue mocking their brother. Not!

7. Glenn Beck--Mr. Corporatist...
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 03:59 PM by CoffeeCat
...spends an inordinate amount of time hacking into OWS.

Last week, he spent most of his time trying to convince his "audience" that OWS was
anti-Semitic. He spent hours on that point alone.

Beck is a corporatist. It's been reported that he met with the Koch Brothers. He
also thanked one of the Koch Brothers, on air, for providing him information on a
current-event that he was discussing on his show.

Glenn Beck is a tool of these corporatists and neocons who are destroying our country.

Unfortunately, he masks as a conservative--and does fall in line with many traditional
conservative values. That's how he hooks some conservatives. But he weaves in total
lunacy and lies. His listeners buy into all of it.

Beck is a tool of the corporations, the warmongers and the corrupt politicians who are
turning this country into a Fascist state. His listeners ignore the reality and are
useful idiots in carrying Beck's rancid water--which harms their own interests. It
really is quite stunning--how beck can cajole a bunch of middle-aged white guys into
selling themselves out--and cheerleading for the millionaires, warmongers and corrupt
corporatists and politicians. Propaganda is powerful.

Beck says the things that the politicians can't say--but want to. Beck's mouth is the
garbage can for this sinister faction of the Republican party. The Koch Brothers or
John Bohner or Eric Cantor would *never* say publicly that OWS is anti-Semitic. However,
they can butter up former-alcoholic Glenn Beck--and get him to say anything for them.

He's very dangerous. He's very entertaining and articulate. His makes lies palatable
and soft and fuzzy. Make no mistake--he plays a huge role in taking down OWS. It's
important to be aware of his lie--and to counter them. His lies are dangerous.

22. Here's ONE word to counter his lies: UN-PATRIOTIC
In this case, it's obvious.

As it is in many other cases of his as well.

10. There are some organizations with which you just do not fuck..
The Marines be one of those organizations..

I wager Glenn Beck will rue this particular bit of filth one day.

11. Typical of a Chickenhawk Republicons
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 04:05 PM by SpiralHawk
The vast horde of bloviating Republicon Chickenhawks -- including Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly, Limbaugh, etc. etc. -- get no respect, because they deserve none.

12. Was the guy as emotional as a drug-addict hack who
just had, say, ass surgery? Put those videos side by side and compare for profundity.

13. Beck sounds desperate
A serial liar. He sounds like he knows he's embellishing; the nervous laugh; the exaggerated screaming.

And douche bags: the Marine was talking about what he had seen at the protest earlier, not what was going on at that very spot.

What a waste of a post this was... there is almost no point to even responding to crap like this.

17. The Onion said the only thing that ever needed to be said about Glenn Beck a few years ago.
http://www.theonion.com/video/victim-in-fatal-car-accid... /

That is the perfect encapsulation of the Glenn Beck situation.
