FROM AMERICABLOG:
FOX's Glenn Beck compares Obama to the Nazis in Germany
by John Aravosis (DC) on 4/01/2009 10:06:00 PM

Did he cry too? Look, Beck is an idiot. If he's not screeching about how oppressed he is as a white Christian male, he's busy crying on screen. And now he's discovered that the dime - yes, the American ten-cent piece - is actually secret fascist propaganda. Of course, he's absurd. But he's no less absurd than the crap Rush Limbaugh, the religious right, and the conservatives leading the Republican party spew on a regular basis. They've all, suddenly, picked up the same message - that Big Brother has arrived with the Obama administration.

Clearly, none of these people care about freedom or Big Brother. Otherwise, they'd have said something while George Bush was busy dismantling the Constitution, and illegally spying on American citizens, throughout much of this decade. But Beck and company didn't care about that. They only saw "fascism" once a Democrat got elected to the presidency.

In fact, none of these clowns see fascism. They see money and power - they assume their audience, their voters, are pretty much undereducated morons, so they have to continue feeding them a steady diet of Palins and plumbers - but they also see a way to possibly cripple Obama, and the Democrats more generally. If they keep hitting Obama with the low blows, just as they've falsely claimed for decades that the media was biased, maybe Obama will try extra hard to be their friends, and slowly move to the right politically (just as the media has moved to the right in an effort to fix its faux-liberal-bias).

Remember what Joe and I have told you before. The Republicans will always accuse us of something they're already doing.

1. if I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have believed it.

The young people coming up in this world are going to move further and further away from Republicans thanks to people like Glenn Beck. We should embrace his idiocy because he helps cut that 25% of nutcases off from the rest of the 75% of America that is sane.

Thank you Glenn - you are doing us a favor and you don't even know it!

8. Glen isn't the author or editor of the daily "Up is Down" He just spews on command
and has no way of knowing what he is going to be told to say tomorrow. He can't even answer the question "Who is behind Up is Down?" not to mention, "Which way is up?"

Fascism is a radical, authoritarian nationalist ideology that aims to create a single-party state with a government led by a dictator who seeks national unity and development by requiring individuals to subordinate self-interest to the collective interest of the nation or race. Fascist movements promote violence between nations, political factions, and races as part of a social Darwinist and militarist stance that views violence between these groups as a natural and positive part of evolution. In the view of these groups being in perpetual conflict, fascists believe only the strong can survive by being healthy, vital, and have an aggressive warrior mentality by conquering, dominating, and eventually eliminating people deemed weak and degenerate. (the homeless, the poor, those without health-care etc...)

Fascist governments permanently forbid and suppress all criticism and opposition to the government and the fascist movement, (see; Patriot Act, DHS, NSA Wiretapping etc...). Fascist movements oppose any ideology or political system that gives direct political power to people as individuals through elected representatives rather than as a collective nation or race (individualism, liberalism, representative democracy); that is deemed detrimental to national identity and unity (communism, class conflict oriented labour movements, internationalism, and laissez-faire capitalism); that protects and empowers people deemed weak and degenerate (egalitarianism) and that undermine the military strength and military ambitions of the nation (pacifism); that may seek to preserve any of the privileges, institutions and cultural values that fascism seeks to overthrow (traditionalism and conservatism).

Following the defeat of the Axis powers in World War II and the publicity surrounding the atrocities committed during the period of fascist governments, the term fascist has been used as a pejorative word.

Taken from the definition provided by Wikipedia. Sounds like the last 8 years of Republican rule that this country endured. REPUBLICANS ARE FASCISTS. By their very nature ideology of "Fuck you, I've got mine, and I'll be dammed if I'm sharing it with anybody". Now we, (the Democrats), are desperately trying to reverse the course of fascism in America, but Wall Street is fighting that with all they have. We are at war to save our democracy, and blubbering assholes like Glen Beck are busy starting a cult. What a miserable fuck.

5. More right-wing projection: impute to others that which you are, or are guilty of
The projection phenomenon among rightists/authoritarians is amazingly clockwork like ... can be counted upon almost every time.

27. Wrong. Toward the film's conclusion he gives the big sermon about TV-induced un-reality...
Which unfortunately is a far more grim and accurate warning that resonates in today's world more than it did in the 70s.

9. This is so fake...Glenn is on automatic
Like Rachel Maddow says, any time Nazis or Commies are evoked, the whole argument becomes a joke and is not worth listening to. It means they have no argument.


And I am still amazed at GOP projection. They accuse the opposition of their own behavior in a spectacular way, laying out their own crimes clearly for all to see....but not so good these days at pinning them on the opposition. Mainly because they've been so completely wrong about everything for 8+ years.

10. That hurt my brain.. You know you could get whiplash
watching Glenn Beck bounce between one crazy idea and then another radically different one the next day.

I wish he would make up his mind whether Obama is leading us down the road to socialism and ultimately communism or to fascism.

31. I guess - but I have always called him Glenno
or Guano . . . .

He responds to both . . . with some tears, of course.

Once he started trying to co-opt progressive protests to suit his idiot agenda, that was it for me.

25. rw radio is using the word "fascism" more and more these day in describing
the Obama administration.

I guess it is one of those words that just sounds so bad, that no understanding of the principles behind the term is necessary. Not unlike "liberal".

32. Everything he says is completely absurd
Anything Obama is doing, Bush did twice as much, like bank bail outs, expanding the government, shoveling money onto people with stimulus, starting/escalating wars, coddling Saudis and to say Obama is bringing back Big Brother when bush approved illegal wiretapping - I just can't figure out how he came up with any of this. Honestly, I think he's sick. With Hannity and Rush, I think it's an act, but I think Beck is just plain sick in the head.
