Obviously racist teabagger signs have derailed Beck's momentum
I mean, there were so many signs, and they were so disgustingly racist, that it painted a clear picture for the world to see of what Beck and his followers are really all about.

1. But I fear momentum cannot entirely be lost unless Beck disappears from FOX.
Because obviously if he isn't going to stop spewing his idiotic views, his most devout followers are going to be pushed into doing something extremely stupid.

2. I hope not. Pretty soon we can declare Beck the new defacto chair of the GOP
replacing Rush.

3. I already have. I think Be_ker's Hatriots now outnumber Limbaugh's Dittoheads. nt

4. They overplayed their hand. They thought they had a lock on white unity across the board...
and got *too* blatant as a result.

It's nice to know that there *IS* a limit on just how explicitly racist you can be, before white folks will speak out against it.

8. THAT momentum's been building too.
Until the march on 9/12, they were (almost credibly) claiming there was nothing racist about the movement.

I got a raft of shit when I sent an email in July about it being based in racism asking everyone "Why now? After eight years of BushCo* stealing elections, starting wars of aggression, shitting on the Constitution, violating civil rights and raiding the treasury, why is everyone becoming political NOW?"

As is typical with FReepers, they completely sidestepped the meat and potatoes and screamed, in unison, "How DARE you call me a racist!1!!111!"

7. A perfect example of what my granpa used to say...
so stupid that if you give them enough rope, they will surely hang themselves.
