    Terrorism is the use of fear to advance a political agenda, which is exactly, precisely what Glenn Beck does each and every day.

    Bbill: just. shut. up.

    Equating Glenn Beck’s pathetically ignorant populism with terrorism is just plain stupid.

    Like many alcoholics, Beck is delusional and balancing on the edge of sanity. Or is he simply a con man taking advantage of a gullible and fearful public who are looking for scapegoats in an uncertain world?

    Fox News is to the GOP, as the Soviet Pravda was to the KGB. It’s a propaganda machine pumping out fear and other lies, 24/7. And we allow this “news” organization to misinform, mislead and lie to low information Americans. Every single poll shows that out students are falling further behind the rest of the world and can no longer compete in a world economy. What about grown-up Americans? We can’t afford to spread mis-information in lies. We can’t afford to dumb-down our citizens with assholes like Beck , Limbaugh and others.

    Anyone who looks to Glen Beck for facts is an idiot. He is all hyperbole, bluster and above all else, entertainment…if you like that kind of entertainment….but he certainly isn’t a journalist.

    Now, on the larger point, what percent of Muslims sympathize with these terrorist regimes? Why is it so hard to get Muslim leaders in the U.S. to condemn the anti-Israel rhetoric coming out of places like Iran? What percent hate Americans, and would trample our constitution in favor of Islamic law? Is 10 percent too high on on those questions?

    What’s really wrong is that BobbyCat thinks Fox news pumps out fear and lies 24/7.
    I see lots of liberals on Fox News. I guess I could say if it wasn’t for Fox I wouldn’t know who any of these people are.
    Mara Liasson, Juan Williams, Ellis Hennican, Joe Trippi, Elaine Marshall, Alan Colmes just to list a few. I hear what they have to say, and sometimes will find myself in agreement with an opinion or two, though I normally disagree with them—At least I get a chance to hear them.

    Can’t watch regular network news—-When you can buy Obama’s books and other collectibles in the NBC News Store, you know you’re not going to get an unbiased opinion about his administration and policy.

    Better look in the mirror BobbyCat, you’re raving about propaganda and it appears that all you see is propaganda from your own ideology.

    As for Glenn Beck– Liberals spew the most hate and venom at the things they fear the most. I’m always working when his show comes on, so I don’t see him.

    Fox targets low-information, unsophisticated Americans and feeds their fears and paranoia with urban legends about conspirators plotting to take away their rights (death panels, etc). I see they got poor Hank. Sorry, but for many Americans swept away by paranoia they can’t see that the real conspirators are the multi-nationals and rich industrialist driven by greed and nothing else. Sure thing. Let’s borrow another 700 billion from China and go deeper into debt to to give millionaires and billionaires another tax break. If that’s not insanity, I don’t know what is. That’s not a liberal plot, Hank, that’s the Mitch McConnell John Boehner extorsion plan and it’s working. I’m sorry you can’t see it.

    Beck is Mormon, who proved by the Mountain Meadows Massacre their terrorist mentalities. I’m also interested in his sacramental undies.

  9. Mike In WNY December 13, 2010 at 11:59 am #

    I certainly feel better knowing their are no more than 1,100,000 terrorists.

    It’s fitting that Beck is Mormon. The top Mormon con man, Joe Smith grew up just down the Canal in Palmyra. He cheated so many dirt farmers out of their money gazing into his magic stone inside his magic hat that the townspeople drove him and his ‘Church’ outta NY into Ohio and good riddance .And thats where Beck is heading – forming a Church. These con men think alike.

  11. Mike In WNY December 13, 2010 at 2:15 pm #

    Wow, Mormons are con men. Does that mean Jews are really shylocks?

  12. BobbyCat December 13, 2010 at 3:10 pm #


    Dear Mr. Einstein,

    Apparently you are making some unfounded derogatory comparison about all Jews, the Jewish nation and religion.

    I was writing about only two con men, Messrs. Smith and Beck. One is a documented and convicted con man; The other is an obvious con man.

  13. Mike In WNY December 13, 2010 at 3:48 pm #

    Hey, I’m not the one who associated Mormons and con men, with a hierarchy led by Joe Smith.

    Poor Bobby Cat, worrying all day about millionaires and billionaires. You’re so eaten up by class warfare you probably can’t eat or sleep. However those people got their money, in many cases they EARNED it, doesn’t matter. Why do you think they should give more of what they earned to the government to give it to someone who sits on their ass all day and does nothing? To be FAIR? Didn’t your momma teach you LIFE ISN’T FAIR? There will be haves and there will be have nots. Been like that for several thousand years now. Perhaps if the bill currently being debated was just to extend TAX RATES—-which aren’t TAX CUTS, and wasn’t being held hostage by Reid, cramming it full of earmarks, we wouldn’t be borrowing so much, huh? Back in the 90’s, As I did a night count in the jail, I took an informal poll. About 70% of the incarcerated population of Norfolk, VA that night had participated in the Head Start and Reading is Fundamental programs. Guess we’re gettin’ a real bang for the buck with those, eh? CUT SPENDING, MAKE GOVERNMENT WORK WITH LESS. LET PEOPLE KEEP MORE OF WHAT THEY EARN. Is that some type of conspiracy? I’m not upset that the billionaires are what they are—-I’m just not one of them, nor will I be. I don’t hate them or what they have. I’m a big boy now, and I’m happy to be alive after having cancer, and happy for what I have. I’d like the government to get the hell out of my pocket and my life. Don’t see anything wrong with any of that. If you do, you gotcha a problem, son.

    I laughed out loud pretty hard last week when Beck tried to link Julian Assange to George Soros.

    @Mike – my grandfather used to relate a story that allegedly came from the clan archives about two shrewd Scots adventurers who travelled around Europe during the dark ages, pretending to be architects. When asked about their accents, they’d claim to be Jews from the Holy Land. They’d present plans for grand palaces at low cost, take a down payment and disappear, leaving people behind who complained about shylock Jews….
    Of course, Gramps was full of colorful stories that had more important lessons than supporting facts. One was well advised to keep both legs in sight when listening to them.

    When you study the Mountain Meadows Massacre, the Siege of Magdeburg, the Crusade against the Albigensians and other notable historical acts, you can see clearly what the most terroristic, bloodthirsty organizations in the history of the world are.

  18. Bbill December 14, 2010 at 7:49 am #

    I’m a big boy now, and I’m happy to be alive after having cancer, and happy for what I have.

    That puts things in perspective fer sure. I’m happy you’re alive, too, and please stay that way for many many many (many) more years!

    However those people got their money, in many cases they EARNED it, doesn’t matter. Why do you think they should give more of what they earned to the government to give it to someone who sits on their ass all day and does nothing?

    That right there is the perfect example of how Limbaugh and his colleagues get people to act against their own interests by stirring up their resentment, particularly against “the other”.

    They’ll tell you that the current high unemployment rate is fault of the “Democrat Party” because wingnuttery is without blemish or consequence but somehow those affected should not be helped because they “sits on their ass all day and does nothing”. When they’re artful about it, they’ll bring out the ol’ dog whistle, the “young bucks buying t-bone steaks with food stamps” card, which tends to energize the extra-special Deliverance Antagonist demographic. Unless your interests align with those of the plutocrats, you’re being played like the proverbial dueling banjo.

    Some questions for you: in 1976 the top one percent controlled nearly nine percent of the nation’s wealth; in 2007 they controlled nearly 24 percent.. Presumably you’re okay with that; perhaps you’re even encouraged by the trend. At what point, though, does it become a problem? Should the one-percenters have fifty percent? 75? Should they have it all?

    Thanks for your consideration and best wishes to keep that mother fucking Big C under control for the rest of your long and good life. And Happy Holidays!
