He really is crazy.
Glenn Beck Gives Tutorial on How to Engage in Civil Dialogue, Says You Can't Make Wild, Baseless Accusations

http://www.alternet.org/blogs/peek/142689/glenn_beck_gi...


Beck then launches into a tutorial of sorts on how to have a civil, intelligent debate about hot-button issues like race, arguing that one party should present their evidence for review by those who may disagree, and the other party should respond in kind, leading to a rational conclusion about the issue at hand. You know, like what Beck always does on his show.

Crying "racism" without backing it up, continues Beck sagely, is tantamount screaming "Fire!", because "racism is dangerous." Beck twists the fire metaphor in ways I can't really follow, until he reaches this conclusion: "Why do they keep screaming Fire?

12. He sure did.
The man seems to be nuttier by the day. Not sure if sociopath is what he should be described as or not, but having dealt with one personally and all the crazy-making and lies ...... it might fit. I'm amazed anyone listens to him for anything but comic-relief. That he actually has followers boggles the mind.

6. Nobody. Some here just like to equate different opinions with "agreeing with Beck".
It's funny, because they're doing the same thing Beck does...

5. Um...who?
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 05:53 PM by YOY
THat's some straight up crazy that I can hardly beleive anyone here would even dare to agree with in partial let alone in full.

Unless you think people who post 99% of the time in the Gungeon constitute as regular DUers.

11. a lot of people use the term "cry racism" here
when discussing beck, and the rw protestors...you know, the obvious racism that has been on display since the campaign. according to a small, but vocal minority, carter was wrong to talk openly about the racism we all know exists because it may piss off the delicate sensibilities of moderate and swing voters. to summarize: talking about actual racism is worse than actual racism.
