A commercial about the mostly AMERICAN companies that support TORTURE.
Edited on Sat May-02-09 09:15 AM by Vinnie From Indy
The scene opens with a man walking into a room and turning on the light. He has a short military style haircut and is dressed head to toe in a preppy outfit from L.L. Bean. The camera swings down and we see a guy sitting in a Lazyboy chair. He is blindfolded and tied to the chair. Behind the chair is a table with a large bucket and barrel. The first man looks at the guy in the chair and then pulls out his Verizon cell phone and begins dialing. He begins talking into the phone.

"Hello, I'd like the number for the Marriott hotel please. Thank you." He hangs up and dials again. "Room 22 please. Tony, get down here right away and bring me my aspirin." He hangs up.

The next scene shows a garage door opening and a shiny new Volvo drives in next to the guy in the chair. The man in the car pops the hood and gets out. He tosses the other man a big bottle of Bayer aspirin. He catches the bottle, sets it down on the table. He reaches down and picks up some cables. He walks up to the car and attaches the cables to the battery. He reaches down again and picks up the other end of the attached cables and heads for the guy in the chair. Fade to black as a bloodcurdling scream is heard.

Below is a list of advertisers that have ads routinely appearing on the Glenn Beck Show. One must assume that these companies are completely comfortable and find nothing repellant about the positions and views of the host Beck. Here is what Beck offered yesterday on his show.

There's a bomb in New York City. It's about to go off. We have somebody right over here. We can pull his fingernails out, we can peel his skin off with a cheese grater. Desperate times call for desperate measures. As different people in the audience cried out Do it! and some thought not (but most were all for it), Beck continued, He is somebody we believe has information we're talking Jack Bauer.

Beck went on to vigorously advocate these procedures actually be used on people merely SUSPECTED of having information.

These are the companies that financially support Mr. Beck. Remember them the next time you are shopping.
