Glenn Beck's Hate Project :His" Fellow Travelers"- Bigots ,White Supremacists, Sexist,Racist, Gay Bashers Theocrats etc. Part 7

Sorry Sheriff Joe Arpaio didn't make the cut today maybe tomorrow-

Anyway Hey Glenn Beck After ACORN you are next!!! Joke of the day-

McCarthyism tactics rediscovered & used by Glenn Beck and his Fellow travelers.
Let's begin with a clip of Edward R. Murrow taking on Senator Joseph McCarthy for his unethical underhanded tactics in smearing those who testify before him ie guilt by association and before all the evidence is heard, hearsay evidence, rumors ,past beliefs as opposed to current beliefs etc.

Murrow:McCarthy March 9, 1954
The Edward R. Murrow broadcast answering charges by Sen. Joseph McCarthy

So lets take Glenn Beck on and play his own game against him to show what a corrupt evil person he really is or just a plain old angry bigoted fanatic.

Glenn Beck has helped to get several people to resign from the Obama administration by his underhanded tactics-if you say it enough times it becomes the truth and now ACORN has been tossed under the bus because a handful of employees out of thousands were abusing the system. Odd ACORN received 50 million dollars over a ten year or more period while Haliburton, Blackwater Inc.,Kellog Brown and Root etc, received billions and hundreds of millions are unaccounted for or they underperformed or committed various crimes - This to mister anti-corruption isn't a problem because these are just corporations making as much money as they and it doesn't matter how. Blackwater has been guilty of abusing its powers killing innocent Iraqis, making fraudulent claims to bilk the system, they have muggled illegal weapons into Iraq , the CEO Prince believes he and Blackwater are on a crusade from Jesus to kill all the Muslims-of course none of this bothers Beck becuase he believes this is all part of God's plan this is what his church The Church of Jesus Christ of ltter Day Saints has taught him and has mixed it in with some cracpot conspiracy theories FEMA Death Camps, New World Order, The Anti-Christ, the Gay agenda, The Black agenda, The Hispanic/Latino La Raza Conspiracy, the atheist secular humanists cum Darwinian Islamic conspiracy theory, the Russian/Chinese/Kenyan/Canadian Conspiracy- odd he and the racist White Supremacist Senator Jesse Helms weren't friends- though John McCain Pat Buchanan and Helms hung out when they were supporting South African Apartheid claiming it was the last bastion of Western Culture while giving money and guns to the Contra Mercenaries to destroy Nicaragua.

Mormon Church Jealous of Gay Rights-The Young Turks
Nov. 10, 2008

This is bizarre and a bit disingenuous for Glenn Beck a Mormon criticizing changing the definition of marriage. He fears it could lead to polygamy- well Mormons were all for more than one wife or a dozen but in order to be accepted into the United States they had to stop the practice. This was therefore for pragmatic reasons not some new revelation from Jehovah . Does Beck not know the history of his own church.
Glenn Beck: Gay Marriage Leads to Polygamy

May 12, 2009 on FOX News

In this next clip Glenn Beck says he's not anti-gay with a wink and a nod and he's fine with civil marriages for Gays is probably lying. Once his people are in power there will be no civil marriages or other such arrangement -"your gay you go to Gulag with your Commie/Liberal/Progressive /Perverted atheistic Comrades" I imagine that's what beck is thinking I always imagine him with the little balloon over his head and what he's really thinking.

Anyway because of his associations we can easily see that Beck is just playing the game of trying to sound somewhat reasonable about Gay civil unions when in fact given the power he would deny Gays anything like equal rights and may start jailing them. He wants to promulgate the conspiracy theory that Gays and their progressive fellow travelers want to start censoring what is preached in the Christian and Mormon churches. Megyn Kelly used the segment to make a gratuitous, unfounded attack on Obama. Kelly believes like Beck that Obama is far to the left and is out to create a totalitarian /authoritarian socialist/fascist atheistic Darwinian worshiping state.She also claims that Gays want more rights than heterosexuals this is just an appeal to the Religious Right and people like Tony Perkins.They also make the same claims about African-Americans and Hispanic Americans etc.

Beck's Conspiracy Theory About Gay Marriage
April 13, 2009
Glenn Beck theorizes that gay marriage is about "attacking churches" and going "into the schools." He also claims President Obama has the same "exact stance" on gay marriage.

Glenn Beck & the his 9/12 movement/Tea Party/Freedomworks/ Dick Armey/ Radical Right, Religious Right, The Patriot Movement, The Minutemen and other White Supremacist groups . America as his friend Pat buchana said was founded by White rich men and only they should be permitted to run the country.
America is a Judeo-Christian nation and its laws should reflect this-

Health Care reform is anti-Christian and therefore anti-American so when Beck makes a statement about an issue he may say it in such a way to hide his more fundamentalist and Mormon beliefs. Remember he claims to be a populist which he is not. He's a rich white Christian male who believes in his entitlement . So as Senator McCarthy would say we know him by whom he associates with .If he associates with ultra conservative Christians and the Mormon Church then it follows according to his own logic that he is deliberately hiding his own agenda which the destruction of America as it now stands so that there will only be localized governments as such with a Sheriff as in his hero Sheriff Joe Arpaio and some Mormon or other religious elders and their wealthiest true believers running the show.

What's God got to do with it? Sept. 13, 2009

And here's Glenn Beck with another "fellow traveler" Geert Wilders who is known for his hatred of Islam but also of Arabs and non-Aryans - he has been known to associate with neo-Nazis & other White Supremacists. So Beck uses his belief in Freedom Of Speech to allow Geert Wilders to spew his hatespeech.Geert Wilders was denied entrance to Great Britain and to Canada as someone who engages in Hatespeech which we have laws about. So really Beck is in fact fueling hatred of Islam and of all Non-Whites otherwise why would he have this guy on and he even gives him a hardy handshake and possibly a series of secret signals etc. like the Masons do -( I'm just using Beck's own way of interpreting events)
Glenn Beck interviews Geert Wilders on Islam and the Koran
Feb. 23, 2009

Now we see Beck attacking Muslims in his own rather cunning manner - he begins by saying parenthetically that Keith Ellison wants to cut and run -from Iraq War- and then asks will he tell Beck if as a Muslim-American whether or not he's a good guy or a bad guy and will he denounce Islamic Terrorists- If Ellison were a bad guy would he tell Glenn Beck??? That's just typical of Glenn Beck's loaded questions. Beck also has criticized Ellison of being sworn in on the Quran so can he be trusted .

Glenn Beck Defends His Attack On Keith Ellison
In this clip, Beck actually defends his racist and anti-muslim attack on Keith Ellison and lies about what he actually said. First what he says now, and then what he ACTUALLY said back then.

And on the role the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-Day Saints played in the battle over Proposition 8:

Prop. 8 protesters target Mormon temple in Westwood Gay-rights activists criticize the church for helping to collect millions to aid passage of ban on gay marriage.

More than a thousand gay-rights activists gathered Thursday afternoon outside the Mormon temple in Westwood to protest the role Mormons played in passing Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California.

It was the latest in an escalating campaign directed against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for its role in marshaling millions of dollars in contributions from its members for the successful campaign to take away same-sex marriage rights.

...Members of the Mormon church, who were strongly urged by church leaders to contribute to the Proposition 8 campaign, had an undeniable role in the measure's victory. Opponents of Proposition 8 have accused the church of discriminating against homosexuals, but the backlash against the denomination has also sparked accusations of discrimination.

During the campaign, a website established by Proposition 8 opponents used campaign finance data and other public records to track Mormon political contributions to the Yes-on-8 campaign. Opponents estimated that members of the church had given more than $20 million, but the amount is difficult to confirm since the state does not track the religious affiliation of donors.

Mormon LDS Beliefs Families Forever prop 8-June 8, 2008

Mormons, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as the Mormon Church believe that this life is not the end. Through the sealing power performed in the Temple, Mormons believe we can be together with our family forever through Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father sent Jesus Christ to pave the way for us to return to Him. This is the great plan of happiness!

This sickenly sacchrine piece of political and religious propaganda from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints against Gay marriage covers up their basic agenda. Their agenda like many churches especially Evangelical Fundamentalist and conservative Catholics are not merely against Gay marriage. Even if legislation or an amendment were made to the US Constitution protecting equal rights for Gay American citizens and allowed for a recognition of their marriages under the law this would not mean that a church or any religious official would be required by law to perform such marriages or to recognize them in their doctrinal proclamations. So what's the big deal. The concern isthat the Mormon church and others do not want to grant equal rights and protections under the law anymore than they wanted such rights for African-Americans and other non-white or non-Christian citizens or equal rights for female citizens of America.

Listening to Glenn Beck who belongs to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints his anxiety and anger and frustration over liberal and progressives ideas such as equality for all Americans including women, non-whites , non-Christians, Gays and Lesbians and whatever other group he and his church believe not worthy of equal rights becomes easier to understand given its religious context. He like other s in the Radical Right and the Religious Right as Uberconservatives are against such notions as diversity, multiculturalism, multilingualism (Speak American!), religious tolerance is of non-Christian religions which they see as Satanic but all of these ideas including a "Liberal Education" they see as pernicious and as corrupting the nation and as a polluting of the City on The Hill or as an offence to God and The New Jerusalem.

as for his belief or his church's in Freedom of Speeech and freedom of dissent

Silencing internal dissent within The Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter Day Saints

A Mormon Testifies Against Prop 8 in Church

Todd takes a stand against his own LDS Mormon church in a sacrament meeting for there political involvement in Prop 8. Using members cash and pressuring all members to fight against Gays and Lesbians rights.Todd quits the LDS Mormon Church for that reason.

The LDS MORMONS don't want GAY PEOPLE around them they might get contaminated

"We do not intend to admit to our campus any homosexuals. If any of you have this tendency and have not completely abandoned it, may I suggest that you leave the university immediately after this assembly...We do not want others on this campus to be contaminated by your presence." (Ernest Wilkinson, president of Brigham Young University, in a 1965 lecture to the BYU student body, titled: "Make Honor your Standard."

And when Glenn Beck or leaders and spokespersons of his church speak about traditional America and the Founding Fathers and the Holy and Sacred Documents of the Founding Fathers such as The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights their reverence for these documents would probably shock many of the Founding Fathers. But be that as it may this reverence and nostalgic view gets mixed in with a religious view with political and practical concerns and sentiments and in effect is as others have noted before that this is a creation of in effect a State Religion where the US Constitution is seen as a continuation from the Bible as being a result of Divine Inspiration and Divine Interference which in effect permitted the creation of the United States of America. Given this according to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints The Book of Mormon being a sacred text is a continuation of the Revelations of God's Creation and His motivations and His spiritual and material plans for Humankind or at least for the Chosen ones of God. Since the Book of Mormon was revealed to the founder of the church Joseph Smith and because this took place according to God's Will and was not a mere accident or coincidence in the United States of America it too is seen as a further Revelation concerning the doctrines and laws of the God Jehovah . Therefore they believe as do many other Christians in America that the United States is the Chosen Nation of God that it is The City on The Hill or the New Jerusalem and therefore this is where Jehovah's Chosen ones make their stand and therefore enshrine the Laws of Jehovah and Jesus Christ in America.

It can then be argued that if any of these Laws of God or as the Reconstructionists and Dominionists call it God Law are breached this is an offense against God and His Church on Earth . Such laws therefore must be obeyed in a strict and most rigid manner possible with no room for quibbling or legal hair-splitting. So one can see that the True Believers whether members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or Uberconservative Evangelical Christians that it is their duty to enforce God's Law throughout not just Utah but all of America and to preach God's Revelations and Laws to the whole world as the Great Commission requires of all Christians including Mormons.

So Glenn Beck and millions of other Americans estimated by Frank Schaeffer for instance at well over 20 million Americans believe in this newer/innovation and interpretation of the Bible from Old Testament to New Testament to the United States Constitution etc. and in the case of Mormons to the Book of Mormon and believe they are commanded by God/Jehovah/Jesus to make America or as much of it as possible into a religious state where local authorities representing the church would enforce the laws that are deemed necessary and a State or Federal government would be limited to certain areas such as national Defense ,raising taxes where or when necessary for that defence and the establishment of international treaties and such where and when necessary.

Given their racist sexist homophobic and their intolerance of other religions the America they dream of and are working tirelessly to create would give favor to a white male property owning class of Christians/Mormons who would rule over the nation as they await the Messiah or the Apocalypse or the Rapture or Armageddon or whatever doctrinal group to which they hold allegiance.

Of course the inclusion of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints could only occur if they and other Christian groups could come to an agreement to form an alliance without giving up any of their doctrinal tenets. We have seen this take place amongst the various Evangelical Fundamentalists and Pentecostals and others over the last 30 years whereby they have been able at times to create massive campaigns to change laws or to make laws or overturn laws they felt were important at least at a symbolic level and thereby forging more alliances and stopping or at least slowing down the evil Satanic liberal forces at work in American society.

So the Church of latter Day Saints/ The Church of Mormon are not just against Gay marriage but would of course be against Gay couples adopting children. Up until 1979 the official Church policy and doctrine concerning African-Americans was that African-Americans were an inferior race which had been cursed by God. But it was not just that they were against allowing African-Americans into their church but in fact they preached against any legal or civil equality for African Americans. In 1979 they changed their policy concerning African-Americans not because they had a new revelation or had come to their senses as they claim. They changed their policy and doctrine concerning African-Americans for financial and political concerns. It was not a matter of doctrinal change but merely pragmatism . Federal government threatened to cut off funding to their university and other federally financed programs etc. if they continued to discriminate against African-Americans. So the change was a calculated financial and political move in the same way as they were forced to give up on their doctrine of polygamy a century earlier. So it is rather disingenuous for the leaders of the Church or its members such as Glenn Beck to preach against any financial aid from the federal or state governments. Other churches in America which were segregated to one degree or another also changed their policies to keep their tax free status and so that the federal or state government would continue to help fund various programs run by these churches including their schools and colleges and to keep their certification.

So it is logical to assume that the Church's concern over Gay Marriage and Gay Rights is also due to certain practical and pragmatic concerns. If California and other state passed legislation allowing for Gay marriages or Gay rights this could eventually lead to Federal legislation or Supreme court rulings defending and insisting that Gays have equal rights with other American citizens. This then could have an affect on the financial situation of the church and of its university, colleges and schools if they continued to discriminate against the Gay community. Again the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints if it continued to discriminate against Gays it might lose its tax exemption as a church and moneys provided to them by the state or Federal government might be terminated. So again the fear is more to do with financial and political realities than with maintaining doctrinal integrity and purity. One could logically assume the same arguments over other issues such as the Equal Rights Amendment which if it were ever passed ( unlikely as Americans do not in general believe in sexual /gender equality) in the United States this might also present some rather difficult financial and political problems for the church.

Mormon Leadership Backs Proposition 8 LDS Members Asked to Support the Measure © Shawn Landis
Aug 24, 2008

The position of the Mormon church is not only that marriage is between one man and one woman, but that the children are entitled to be raised in the bonds of matrimony. Although the church does not back political candidates, it is active in causes it views as moral issues. On June 29, 2008, a letter was read in California Stakes asking members to support any efforts in the state to define marriage as being between one man and one woman.

Some Sanity on the LDS Prop 8 Effort at Dave's Mormon, Oct. 23,2008

From a surprising source, Andrew Sullivan at the Atlantic Online. After noting that roughly 40% of the Yes on 8 financing has come from LDS contributors, he notes, "It's all legal, and totally within their democratic rights." Thank you, Mr. Sullivan. He doesn't decry LDS participation in the campaign; he doesn't call for any efforts to harass Mormons like the nutjobs over at Daily Kos; he doesn't try to identify and target individual LDS contributors like the people running and supporting the deceptively named Mormons for Proposition 8 site. He ends the short article with a simple suggestion that those who disagree with the LDS position donate to the No on 8 campaign. Bravo for a little online civility in this noisy election season.

“The Family: A Proclamation to the World”, Family Guidebook: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints

In 1995, the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles issued “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.” This proclamation is a declaration and reaffirmation of doctrines and practices that prophets have stated repeatedly throughout the history of the Church. It contains principles that are vital to the happiness and well-being of every family. Family members should study the proclamation and should live by its precepts.

“We, the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.

“All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose.

“In the premortal realm, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshiped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan by which His children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize his or her divine destiny as an heir of eternal life. The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally.

“The first commandment that God gave to Adam and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as husband and wife. We declare that God’s commandment for His children to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force. We further declare that God has commanded that the sacred powers of procreation are to be employed only between man and woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife.

“We declare the means by which mortal life is created to be divinely appointed. We affirm the sanctity of life and of its importance in God’s eternal plan.

“Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. ‘Children are an heritage of the Lord’ (Psalms 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations.

“The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation. Extended families should lend support when needed.

“We warn that individuals who violate covenants of chastity, who abuse spouse or offspring, or who fail to fulfill family responsibilities will one day stand accountable before God. Further, we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.

“We call upon responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those measures designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit of society” (Ensign, Nov. 1995, 102).

Kill Or Not Kill Obama Poll WTF!!! -Glenn Beck:McCarthyism , Mormonism/ Beck's Pastor Problem Part 6

NEWS UPDATE; Sept. 29 12:40PM
Its Getting Scary Out there-

SCREEN GRAB- Facebook poll: Should Obama be killed?

By GottaLaff

Okay, that's it, I've had it.

The hate speech, the threats have gotten completely out of hand. And those who have incited viewers and listeners-- and you know who you are Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, etc.-- are responsible for a good part of this horrific activity.

No, it is not "grassroots", not even close. It is a sick, terrifying, dangerous movement toward violence and the worst kind of civil unrest.

The same "party leaders" who get their rocks off by pretending to be macho and exerting their windbaggy, wrongheaded power will one day come to realize that killing is real, not just a word on a Facebook poll, and it's already happened (Dr. Tiller, the census "fed"), and it is final. Real and final.

The only things long and hard about these blowhards (no pun) are their mics. You get rid of those, and these chest-thumping cretins are nothing more than overgrown, uncontrollable, whiny, screeching little toddlers trying to clomp around in grown-up shoes, shoes that they'll never be able to fill. They'll never be men. They are wounded, damaged animals.

Time to tame them. And time to demand that they tame their deranged, diseased herd of blind followers.

First known use of the term "McCarthyism" & to the right a Poster Fearmongering About Communism 1950s-

found at Could It Be

Yes Virginia, there were others in America's history before Glenn Beck who used Fear of Communism or various delusional conspiracy theories to stir up suspicion & hate of the US Government because they too feared change ie Senator McCarthy , The Birchers, Barry Goldwater, George Wallace, Father Coughlin, Henry Ford , The American Bund, The Ku Klux Klan, posse comitatus , the Minutemen, Sheriff Bull Connor . And now the American government and its society faces a new group of fear-mongers and haters of the Democratic Process especially if those they favor are voted out of power . This newer group of Professional Agitators , Rabble Rousers who are guided by a fascistic impulse include to name a few : Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Michele Bachmann, Michael Savage, Scott Wheeler, Dick Armey, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin , Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs

Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them."

"And thus saith the Lord God: I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities."

"And cursed shall be the seed of him that mixeth with their seed; for they shall be cursed even with the same cursing. And the Lord spake it, and it was done."

"And because of their cursing which was upon them they did become an idle people, full of mischief and subtlety, and did seek in the wilderness for beasts of prey."

Book of Mormon

"Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so"

Brigham Young president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1847 -1877)

1954 David Schine, Senator Joseph McCarthy :The Witch Finder General (Liar & delusional Drunkard & closeted Gay) and the just as infamous extremist and closeted gay Roy Cohn who died from AIDS- their hidden sexuality is noteworthy because sometimes such men as these seem to have a special hate on for Gays and Lesbians & other so called sexual deviants such as some of the more current Republicans and Religious Right leaders who have been as it were caught in the act but Republicans never talk about that -

It should also be noted that in the last eight years or so the Neoconservatives and their fellow travelers in their revisionist re-writing of history now claim McCarthy was a hero even if he did lie and bare false witness and was a drunkard. But we should note the conservative true believers in America are incessantly rewriting history even on a daily basis as they now tell us George W.Bush was not America's worst President but its best and every decision he made was the right one except for trying to get amnesty for undocumented workers.

McCarthy even with his blatantly false accusations of Communist associations or other suspicious activities created an environment of fear and justified paranoia since no one knew who would be next on his list to destroy. Glenn Beck and his media comrades are doing the same thing now and this could at the very least lead to government paralysis.

"On 9th February, 1950, at a meeting of the Republican Women's Club in Wheeling, West Virginia, McCarthy claimed that he had a list of 205 people in the State Department that were known to be members of the American Communist Party (late he reduced this figure to 57). McCarthy went on to argue that some of these people were passing secret information to the Soviet Union. He added: "The reason why we find ourselves in a position of impotency is not because the enemy has sent men to invade our shores, but rather because of the traitorous actions of those who have had all the benefits that the wealthiest nation on earth has had to offer - the finest homes, the finest college educations, and the finest jobs in Government we can give."

McCarty with his bogus list of commies in the US Government

Herb Block, Joseph McCarthy,
Washington Post (4th March, 1954)

"McCarthy also claimed that the Democratic administration had been infiltrated by communist subversives. McCarthy named four of these people, who had held left-wing views in their youth, but when Democrats accused McCarthy of smear tactics, he suggested they were part of this communist conspiracy. This claim was used against his critics who were up for re-election in 1950. Many of them lost and this made other Democrats reluctant to criticize McCarthy in case they became targets of his smear campaigns."

Drew Pearson immediately launched an attack on Joe McCarthy. He pointed out that only three people on the list were State Department officials. When this list was first published four years ago, Gustavo Duran and Mary Jane Keeney had both resigned from the State Department in 1946. The third person, John Service, had been cleared after a prolonged and careful investigation. Pearson also pointed out that none of these people had been members of the American Communist Party.

Anderson asked Pearson to stop attacking McCarthy: "He is our best source on the Hill." Pearson replied, "He may be a good source, Jack, but he's a bad man."

With the war going badly in Korea and communist advances in Eastern Europe and in China, the American public were genuinely frightened about the possibilities of internal subversion. McCarthy, as chairman of the Government Committee on Operations of the Senate, was in an ideal position to exploit this situation.

For the next two years McCarthy investigated various government departments and questioned a large number of people about their political past. Some people lost their jobs after they admitted they had been members of the Communist Party. McCarthy made it clear to the witnesses that the only way of showing that they had abandoned their left-wing views was by naming other members of the party.

Quote from: Spartacus website

So anyway speaking of Senator Josepth McCarthy or The House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC or HCUA,[1] 1938–1975) isn't this what Glenn Beck does looks at every association that one has had or anything that someone has said so one day in 1968 the person said something or other "I hate my country we'd be better off if we followed Mao" . So Beck like his other compatriots in the media are like attack dogs going after those they do not agree with and therefore hate searching out every current or past association or deed or word to toss back at the individual whether it was an off the cuff remark made yesterday or something said twenty or fifty years ago. So every day they go after President Obama and all those he surrounds himself with or those he knew years ago or when he was six such as Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright etc. Sometimes an association can mean something sometimes not so much. I find this such a stupid attitude when it is stretched and used again and again to destroy someone's reputation-since we should be concerned about who this person is now and what they believe etc. This seems to be a very typical and singular issue for Americans who reject intellectualism and cosmopolitanism . For instance any one who attends a large university with a diverse population will have acquaintances and friends from different backgrounds and different religious and political beliefs . Of course conservatives believe one should attend a conservative university where the students and faculty are of one opinion only with of course a little variation whereas a liberal arts universities is supposed to offer a wide range opinions within reason of course but this notion is foreign to conservatives and to many Americans it seems.

Just imagine how insane such allegations sound: President Obama brought before HUAC" Yes didn't you Mr. Obama go to school when you were six with a guy who became a Communists, or a thief, or a serial killer or who now runs a Tim Horton's coffee and donut shop and we Americans know that Tim Horton's is part of the Canadian Conspiracy to destroy traditional American values and the American system of government. and so it goes...

Of course in Beck's case every crazy thing he said before finding God and Mormonism and sobriety he like George Bush could blame it all on his drinking and drug abuse. Well isn't that convenient !

Odd how such people who kick these habits want to put other people in jail for ten or twenty years for similar crimes so the person's claim to wanting to reform means nothing- So instead of developing sympathy and being empathetic they become less sensitive to the problems of others . Their attitude instead is that if they can turn their life around and be successful then others can do the same. They may even secretly believe that because they have more inner strength than most people they were able to do that which should have been impossible and therefore they are special and better than others. They may also become delusional believing that God personally intervened in their life because He, God that is has an important mission for them to carry out so again they are better than others because they have been chosen by God.(one could surmise that probably most American presidents have suffered from such delusional beliefs how else does one explain the War in Iraq, or the Vietnam War or removing elected heads of governments in other countries against the will of the people of that nation ???)

Both Beck and Bush seemed to suffer from this latter notion and so they become bullies with a God Complex believing no one should contradict them because they have a direct line to God or they have by turning their lives around have become a superior force to be recon with.

But as some would argue that Glenn Beck did not necessarily change that much. He still sounds like a selfish self-satisfied arrogant bitter twisted old drunk and drug addict except he happens to no longer drink or do drugs. What some would call a Dry drunk" He has replaced his former addictions to new more socially acceptable ones such as his religion as a Mormon and as a moralizing sermonizing arrogant know it all with little or no compassion for others outside his family and his small circle of friends. He also still seems to suffer from tumultuous mood swings can cry at the drop of a hat or suddenly go into a rage as if he were still an out of control drunk ie screaming at the caller during his radio show to get off my phone or berating and demeaning a guest on his tv show because they don't agree with him or worse they come more prepared than he is with facts and other evidence contradicting his opinion.

Beck does remind me of George W. Bush who had much the same experience when it comes to alcohol and drugs and acting like a nasty bastard til he too found God and became a bully with a Napoleonic complex which he satisfied by becoming the governor of Texas where he was literally God-like in his decision making since with his pardoning power he could decide who was to be legally executed or not .

We've all heard the stories of Governor Bush and his buddies sitting around joking while another person was being executed later he and his friends Cheney and Rumsfeld , & Condoleeza Rice got off on torture ( Whatever gets you through the night I guess- so much for their sanctimoniously Godliness) relishing the fact that because of them dozens or hundreds or even thousands of detainnees were being harassed, tormented, abused and tortured which they could end or start with a single phone call.

Yes Beck is right Hinckley transcended alright since he was able to go from being a proud racist to acting politically correct because the Times were changing and I guess it was hurting the Mormons reputation and their donations.

The other problem with this is that other doctrines which the church teaches may given this precedent also be changed. So as the church once hated black people maybe one day they won't hate Gays (See proposition 8 California)or maybe the church might also come to terms with the government involved in the country's National Public Education system heaven forbid that every American child be entitled to a free education or be given free vaccines or medical help of any kind or that people be decently housed or that during a natural disaster the government help out victims no way says beck F... them all just pray and hope for the best.

Glenn Beck on Mormon (LDS) Church President Hinckley's Death

Its odd Glenn Beck claims to be so religious yet he is in favor of the death penalty or putting people in prison without any concern for rehabilitating or educating prisoners to reduce their chances of committing more crimes. For instance listening to Glenn Beck talk about "enhanced Interrogation Techniques" he would never say torture but still we know he too relishes the idea of these people whom he hates and despises were being treated in the most inhumane fashion almost unimaginable except that we are unfortunate in having the photographs and the written transcripts but not the videos since the criminals in the Bush administration destroyed them "Accidentally on purpose". Well they need not worry we now know poor Obama has capitulated to the powers that be whoever they are. Besides it would be seen as a direct attack on the American Myth of Exceptionalism and purity in which America can do no wrong. What appears wrong is rather misunderstood til one day its meaning may be revealed by history or God. As God moves in mysterious way so does America.

Anyway if Glenn Beck believes that a person can be criticized for their various associations for instance he and others attacked President Obama for his association with Reverend Wright or with Bill Ayers etc. According to Beck anything someone says or does is a reflection on those who associate with that person. If you have a friend who is a racist, a communist, an anarchist, a liberal, a conservative then you must be a racist , a communist, an anarchist, a liberal etc. Supposedly Americans believe in freedom of association demagogues such as Senator McCarthy and Glenn Beck believe that a person or a politician should be judged by with whom they associate .

So over a year ago Glenn Beck already had his mind made up that Obama was an evil person who would change America into a Communist collectivist state. One should listen carefully because Glenn Beck is really against the government doing anything much beyond defense. So really like other members of the Radical Right and the Religious Right he does not believe in any sort of food safety or environmental safety regulations etc. If a corporation sells you a car and that car is faulty and because of it you get hurt in an accident that shouldn't have happened too bad screw you. So if tobacco companies tell the public that smoking does not cause any serious health problems then we must take their word for it?

Glenn Beck play clip of Ezra Taft Benson-Nov.4 2008

In this clip we get a statement from another religious leader who condemns socialism because it is against God's Plan and God's Plan is that the poor shall be with us always and so shall suffer while the Rich and Powerful inherit the Earth and then get to go to heaven while the poor suffer and then go to hell or enter Heaven as slaves for their betters The Pure Rich and powerful.

He also preaches that America has abandoned the ideals and beliefs and economic system promoted by the Founding Fathers.

In 1977, Ezra Taft Benson on Socialism -RON PAUL-LDS - 1/2

So we see it is because of his faith in Mormonism that Glenn Beck has such hatred of any public government supported program as being characterized as socialist and which is therefore by his fishy logic is Communism. So Beck is really preaching part of the Gospel and beliefs and dogma of the Mormon Church. So his economic theories are based upon the Book of Mormon as are all of his other out of date social theories about the inferiority of Hispanics and African -Americans.

So Canada and most European countries are by the definition of the Mormon church and its most faithful servant and True Believer Glenn Beck "Communist" & "Collectivist".
So if these countries are Communist and therefore evil and the Pawns Of Satan shouldn't the United States break all ties with these countries or invade them to once again make them pure again ie capitalistic .
Mormons and Beck are against any form of treating all citizens as equal because those who are poor are just too damn lazy or are being punished by God and if they are Black they are doubly cursed.

Mormons and race

The introduction to the 1981(LDS) The Book of Mormon states,"The Lamanites are the principal ancestors of the American Indians."

LDS MORMON PROPHET Joseph Smith stated the following:
"....The Lamanites, through transgression, became a loathsome, ignorant and filthy people, and were CURSED with a SKIN of DARKNESS yet, they have the promise, if they will believe, and work righteousness...they shall become a WHITE and DELIGHTSOME people..."
:The Latter-Day Saints Millennial Star, vol. 14, p. 418 "

Two conflicts between the LDS and the the federal government:

The LDS church has had a fascinating and turbulent history. They have had two major conflicts with the federal government.
The first occurred in the mid-19th century when the Mormon practice of polygyny -- a form of polygamy -- was the main reason why statehood for Utah was initially rejected. Six additional refusals followed, between 1849 and 1887. In 1890, as the government was about to seize the assets of the LDS Church, the Prophet received a revelation from God. This was the "Great Accommodation" that changed suspended the practice of polygyny -- a form of polygamy. On 1896-JAN-4, Utah became the 45th state in the union.
Pressure was also felt by the LDS during the 1970's because of the LDS' institutionalized racism. The IRS was threatening to cancel the church's non-profit tax exempt status. University sports teams were refusing to compete in Utah. This pressure was relieved on 1978-JUN-6 when the church received a new revelation from God to end the practice of discrimination against persons of African-American heritage.

I have been trying to come with a slogan or snappy ad like term or something suitable for a sound bite or headline for referring to Glenn beck and his theatrics, antics & hate mongering- Beckism, Beckology : the study of Beckism or related shallow analysis followers:Beckites, beckers, Beckniks,
anti-Beckism, anti-beckites, anti-beckniks- the one thingers or thingism from his favorite phrase -The One Thing or Here's the thing- Any suggestions?

From Wikipedia
The House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC or HCUA,[1] 1938–1975) was an investigative committee of the United States House of Representatives. In 1969, the House changed the committee's name to "House Committee on Internal Security". When the House abolished the committee in 1975,[2] its functions were transferred to the House Judiciary Committee.

The committee's anti-communist investigations are often confused with those of Senator Joseph McCarthy.[3] McCarthy, as a senator, had no direct involvement with this House committee.[4] McCarthy was the chairman of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations.

Theological foundation for racism in the LDS church:

According to sociologist Amand L. Mauss, a president of the Mormon History Association, the church's racist beliefs originated within protestant denominations from which many Mormons converted. He said in 1998: "Every major Protestant denomination in history has taught that blacks are descendants of Cain and Ham." 1
bullet Cain is described in the book of Genesis of the Hebrew Scriptures (a.k.a. Old Testament) as a son of Adam. Cain was jealous of his brother Abel, because God had rejected Cain's offering, while accepting Abel's. In Genesis 4:8, he is described as having "attacked his brother Abel, and killed him."
bullet Ham is described in Genesis 9 as a son of Noah who had seen his father naked. Ham himself was not punished. But Ham's son, Canaan, was cursed. Genesis 9:25-27:

"Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers. He also said, 'Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem. May God extend the territory of Japheth; may Japeth live in the tents of Shem and may Canaan be his slave'."

This became known as the Curse of Ham.

bullet Most Christians found it convenient prior to the 19th century to assume that the Curse of Ham was to continue to all of Ham's African descendents. This justified human slavery.

Protestant denominations in the early 19th century interpreted the Bible as implying that the black race was formed from Cain and Abel's descendents. The Curse of Ham was used extensively prior to the Civil War to justify slavery as a biblically condoned, recognized and regulated practice. The abolition movement caused a great deal of distress among Christians because they had to finally reject slavery as profoundly immoral -- a practice which the Bible accepted as a normal aspect of the culture of the Middle East. They had to wrap their minds around the fact that the Bible taught something that was apparently against the will of God. Beliefs of the inferiority of blacks died a slow death among the leading denominations: Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, etc.

However, the LDS church was an exception. The Pearl of Great Price is one of four source texts that are accepted by Mormons as divinely inspired and authoritative scripture --the "Standard Works." The Pearl had specifically prohibited the ordination of anyone who was black or who had even one distant black ancestor. Its teachings could not be easily altered.

Another inspired scripture, according to the LDS, is the Book of Mormon. It discusses the Lamanite race, and how they received dark skins and a degenerate status as punishment:

2 Nephi 5:21-23:

"And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them."

"And thus saith the Lord God: I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities."

"And cursed shall be the seed of him that mixeth with their seed; for they shall be cursed even with the same cursing. And the Lord spake it, and it was done."

"And because of their cursing which was upon them they did become an idle people, full of mischief and subtlety, and did seek in the wilderness for beasts of prey."

In 2 Nephi 30:6, the the Book of Mormon as originally translated (or written; opinions differ) by Joseph Smith said that if Lamanites accepted the true gospel,

"...their scales of darkness shall begin to fall from their eyes; and many generations shall not pass away among them, save they shall be a white and a delightsome people."

After 1981, the term "white and delightsome" was changed to read "pure" -- an unusual action for a book considered to be inspired by God in its original version. 2

3 Nephi 2:15 reads:

"And their curse was taken from them, and their skin became white like unto the Nephites." 2

Glenn Beck' Hate Project: Phony Populism & Demagoguery & The New George Wallace Part 5

UPDATE: 1:22 & 2:33 PM, Sept. 28, 2009

Hey Glenn Beck is this the sort of "Real American" you are proud of???

Governor George Wallace "A Real American"???
Attempting to block integration at the University of Alabama, Governor George Wallace stands defiantly at the door while being confronted by Deputy U.S. Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach.
Date 11 June 1963

"Glenn Beck represents a right-wing twist on old left-wing sentiment, and his populism is less about "the people" than it is about the conservative individuals who resent their taxes being used to aid the lazy unwashed masses."
Quote from gsmartremarks

George Wallace the Segregationists like Glenn Beck was a populist who also used fear mongering tactics and wanted to turn back the clock to the era before African-Americans civil rights were being protected and enshrined into law.Wallace also believed as does Beck and other right-wing Uberconservatives in State's Rights which was merely code word for Segregation and Jim Crow

Racist George Wallace Presidential Campaign ad 1968-

Glenn Beck's twisted populism
from gsmartremarks September 26, 2009

Glenn Beck represents a right-wing twist on old left-wing sentiment, and his populism is less about "the people" than it is about the conservative individuals who resent their taxes being used to aid the lazy unwashed masses.

Poor Glenn Beck never gets a good night's sleep since Obama became president as he is awakened by these images seen in this video which for him is a nightmare a black man in the Whitehouse and Beck's white privilege and entitlement being eroded. Poor guy only makes 23 million a year and still he is angry and pissed off all the time- WTF???

And here's a clip of photos taken during the George Wallace Campaign 1968
George Wallace for President Campaign Rally. Albany New York, U.S. October 10th, 1968.
Adapted from the website

Veteran news photographer Bob Paley captured this turbulent George Wallace presidential campaign stop in Albany, New York, US on October 10th 1968.
The sound track is a creative composite of various events not an actual recording of the Wallace Rally.

Beck Moronically Claims Bush & McCain Were Progressives; & the Country Won't Survive Obama
(Via ) Beck claims Bush, McCain were "progressive," adds that "the country may not survive Barack Obama".

Another list from Glenn Beck warning politicians they are either in or out.
He is upset about obama apologizing or even recognizing that America is not and has not been perfect. Beck I guess is proud of America's heritage including the mass murder of Native Americans the enslavement of a few million Africans proud of America's good old traditions such as Lynchings and men's only clubs for Real Americans such as The Ku Klux Klan or the John Birch Society and the vigilantes the Minutemen.

**Glenn Beck has graciously linked to this video. It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway- I do not represent Glenn Beck. I am not affiliated with Glenn Beck in any way, and NONE of my comments or opinions necessarily reflect those of Glenn, Fox News, or Mercury Radio Arts.**

We have some liberal idiots amongst us who are accusing me of fakery. Obviously they are incapable of performing math or grasping how averages work (it's not surprising that they don't know the difference between net and gross given the financial record of the people they vote for) so I will be nice and hold their hands:

And from a liberal viewer:
Small Turnout Taxpayer March on DC vs Obama's Inauguration!

Liberal Media Hypocrisy Test
PLEASE READ: By the way. MSNBC talk show host Rachel Maddow averages less than one third the viewers of Glen Beck or Sean Hannity. (Despite having a much better time slot than Glen Beck.)
This video has everything to do with demonstrating media bias and nothing to do with supporting Bush.

How the Right see recent events. Perception v Reality-The Conundrum

Which is more important or has the most effect facts on the ground, truth or one's perception. As Glenn beck said to Katie Couric in his interview people look through their own particular prism and so see the world in a distorted manner.This was an odd thing for Beck to agree to since it meant that he was admitting to some form of relativism. If our experiences are all relative than what is real or not real. It is a telling remark which allows Glenn beck to make various wild assertions and generalizations and when someone tries to critique what he has said he can always say that's just his perception of things and therefore not necessarily to be taken as gospel. In the same way he says he is not a real journalist (or says he is an entertainer and comedian) but rather just a commentator. But this is a bit disingenuous since he sets up his arguments on his TV program as logical indisputable arguments based upon facts which he has amassed to build his thesis. And we know that a large segment of his audience takes Glenn Beck very seriously otherwise they wouldn't have been attending Tea Party demonstrations and the Town Hall Meetings or taken part in the 9/12 march on Washington carrying signs with sound bites written on them which are traceable to Glenn Beck such as "Death Panels" , "Pulling the Plug on Grandma", comparing Obama to Hitler Stalin, Mao and using terms such as Socialism, Communism , Fascism etc.

Glenn Beck also claims he does not support either political party but his ideology is to the far right and includes many of the values being pushed by the Republican Party and the Religious Right ie anti-abortion, pro-family, that America is a Christian nation or ought to be and he is hostile to feminism and Gays and the very idea of pluralism and multiculturalism, he believes in a smaller government and in less taxes is in favor of Capital Punishment and supports State's Rights over the Feds and is in favor of America being designated English language only and has a hate on for anything smacking of Godless Liberalism and Beck believes that America is being invaded by a horde of immoral, disease ridden illegal-immigrants which could destroy traditional America and that America is the best country in the world or could be if the government would abandon all those socialist policies such as funding public education and other pernicious programs.

So the left being biased against Republicans and George W. Bush saw everything Bush did through that prism. So Bush wasn't that bad but did what he thought was the best for the country.Therefore according to this view the Bush Regime 's actions were not criminal or self-serving but rather deliberately misunderstood by the left. Now with Obama in power the left defends Obama while the right sees him differently. The question becomes are Obama's supporters just seeing what they want to see and so are delusional or are Obama's detractors seeing President Obama and his policies as they really are or are they seeing them through an ultra-Right wing prism and so when it comes to Obama they are delusional. Part of the problem with this thesis is that it puts forth a false rigid dichotomy of either or when the events we perceive are more complicated than just black and white. But the Uberconservatives whether the secular conservatives or the Religious Right tend to view the world in these terms as black and white, right and wrong good and evil. As Bush put it after 9/11 countries are either with the United States or they are against the United States. So any country which does not give some aid to the United States in its Global War on Terror is therefore America's enemy. So France for instance became one of America's enemies to the point that France became a punchline and a derogatory term. French Fries became Freedom Fries- this is the height of nonsense yet it was encouraged from the highest office in the country.

Another related issue has to do with the Right's perception of liberals and progressive and those on the left. For instance if large rallies or demonstrations were held by those opposed to Bush's policies and 200,000 demonstrators showed up the media would downplay the numbers and claim that tens of thousand took part in that demonstration. The left would then be accused of inflating the actual numbers and so that demonstration and others were not taken seriously. The Right would call these liberal or leftists merely a noisy marginal fringe group since they only represented an insignificant number of American citizens.

Now consider this for instance the conservatives & Republicans claim there were over one million to two million people who took part in the recent Glenn Beck /Tea Party 9/12 Project March on Washington. Much of the media and liberals say that the supporters of the march inflated the numbers and that in total there may have been only 75,000 who took part in this march. This creates a bit of a conundrum for both sides. So Glenn Beck the organizer of the 9/12 project cries foul and says the liberal media is deliberately under-reporting the number of participants .

During the Bush era people who took part in anti-war marches accused the media of downplaying the actual numbers at these marches or ignored such events all together. The media would bury such stories or argue that these anti-war and anti-Bush demonstrators represented a small radical fringe element in American society . Meanwhile the right wing drive-by media were dismissive of anyone who criticized Bush's policies and called them traitors. So possibly because of projection or their own experience working in or with the media those on the right have come to believe the media cannot be trusted because they tend to follow the party line of whomever is in power. So it is according to them a matter of "common Sense" and logical that the media could not be counted on to report the truth about the 9/12 march or other right wing demonstrations because the media tends to favor whomever is in power. This is a bit odd because many on the right during the Bush era claimed the Media was disproportionately liberal and to the left. While those on the left claimed the media was too far to the right and tended to be dismissive of anyone or of groups which opposed Bush policies from the Patriot Act to the use of torture to the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

And as the Media during the Bush era under reported anti-Bush protests so it is difficult to convince those on the right who oppose Obama's policies that now suddenly out of the blue as it were the Media might act independently and in an impartial manner in their reporting on the activities of the Conservatives calling them a fringe group of nutters as the media once described those who were against George W. Bush.

I know it sounds a bit convoluted but I believe it is a valid point that we need a program or mechanism set up so that some of these issues could be resolved using non-partisan independent individuals or groups to determine on a practical level how many people were at a particular demonstration or how many people died in a war as in the Iraq War or The Vietnam war etc. Unfortunately there are those on either side of an issue who have their own agenda which at times distorts their perception and leads to a misrepresentation of the facts.

On the other hand we should also try to understand how those on the other side who have a different political or ideological view perceive events. So for example here is a video dealing with media bias but of course the question quickly arises about whether the video and how it was put together also represents a bias this is an issue which anyone making a documentary film for instance at some point in the film making process has to face up to.

Amanda Terkel: Confronting Glenn Beck Sept.15, 2009

from Americasfuture and Think Progress asks Amanda Terkel, blogger for ThinkProgress, how progressives should respond to the Glenn Beck phenomenon. Beck is the Fox News host who helped drive the right-wing, anti-government "teabagging" protest in Washington on September 12, 2009. Terkel has written a number of articles that not only expose the ugliness of Beck's rhetoric but also detail how Beck's faux populism lines up with conservative money interests. Terkel says that progressives cannot afford to be silent while Beck creates a political atmosphere in which green jobs champion Van Jones is fired from his job in the Obama administration and the Senate acts to cut off funding for ACORN.

Glenn Beck's Hate Project: "America For Americans " & " Obama's Thugocracy" Part 4

Let's begin with Glenn Beck's Best New Friend Scott Wheeler head of The National Republican Trust (PAC) He is a rather sleazy operative for the Republican party who does some of their dirty work ie Dirty Tricks - He is a "Professional Agitator"
He claims Obama is setting up a Gestapo asking people to turn in those who criticize Obama. Wheeler goes into a tirade defending the Bush Regime and the Invasion and Occupation of Iraq etc. So he is another Spin Doctor for the Republicans who hates any American who criticizes George W. Bush or who support the Usurper President Obama. He is not a traditional conservative but is a radical who believes Obama needs to be stopped and that if necessary it should be done by Impeachment, or other legal means but if necessary by insurrection or secession.

Anyway lets start by watching Glenn Beck the Professional Agitator and Racist squirm during his interview with Katie Couric.

Glenn Beck refuses to define "white culture"
Katie Couric interviews Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck squirms around in his chair refusing to answer Katie Couric question on what is White Culture- he basically says Couric is doing a drive-by interview hoping to get some juicy sound bites. But he was the one who called Obama a racist and that Obama had a deep seated hatred of White Culture. He says she's trying to ambush him and he says anyone who wants to know should go to his website. But does keep pushing for an answer.

Finally he says he has proof that Obama is a racist and that Obama hates the White Culture whatever that might be. So again he pulls out what is now the old tired Reverend Wright gambit that Obama for 20 years listened to sermons which were in Beck's view a bit radical and promoting the destruction of the White Race. He feebly tries to turn the whole question around saying wouldn't it be the public's right to know if George W. Bush had been listening to a preacher who made derogatory remarks about African-Americans . Even now there are those Evangelical Fundamentalist who preach hate of one group or another ie Gays, liberals, atheists, pagans, Muslim or anyone who is not Christian or not an Evangelical Fundamentalist Christian. This sort of preaching of hate does not for a moment enter Glenn Beck's rigid prejudiced brain. To him hating these various groups is to him acceptable and so he has very little room in which to try to answer Katie Couric's question on The White Race and Racism. It is possible that in his mind the way black Americans were treated was not that bad and the reason Blacks have not risen up socially, materially or that a larger number are better educated than they are is because in fact in his view which he takes for granted most black people are inferior to white people. This he would call "Common Sense" and so having a Black president may go against "Common Sense" and therefore Obama has been put in this position by some hidden cabal or whatever such as "The New World Order".

But we know that America has had a long history of numerous religious leaders and pastors and preachers who did make derogatory remarks and preach about the bestiality and immorality and that African-Americans were unable to learn much,. For centuries this was taken as a fact about the world and as a matter of "Common Sense" by most Europeans and Americans. Then the world changed as one European country and Empire ended slavery and moved towards a more enlightened and rational era while the US held onto its outdated beliefs til the Civil War . but afterward Blacks were no longer slaves but their lives did not improve as much as they should as the White Christian culture adopted other legal (Jim Crow,Segragation) and not so legal means(KKK/Lynchings/ Massacres of whole towns) to keep the former slaves in their place.

These Uberconservatives and racists need to be reminded that African -Americans up til recent times still faced inequality and injustice. For instance Jerry Falwell's church was an all white church up until 1980 or so, the various religious schools and universities were white only and later allowed blacks but they were segregated and black and white student were not permitted to date. This sort of discrimination went on into the 1980s but Glenn Beck Scott Wheeler are in denial about this or are just outright lying and trying to be as "politically correct " as they can be or they claim that all such talk is just a lot of Bull- Crap "political Correctness" ie they believe as men and women are different and are not equal so too the various races which are not equal.

This is just more proof Glenn Beck on the questions of race and inequality and injustice he just doesn't get it. No matter what Beck says the fact is that Whites were not enslaved by Blacks. Blacks did not Lynch white people over an eighty year period with impunity in the name of Public Safety and to uphold the Jim Crow laws and segregation. Whites did not have to protest and be beaten and killed because they wanted to be able to exercise their right to vote and to have legislation passed to ensure that they had equal rights and segregation be ended. Whites are also not racially profiled to the extent that when they are driving their cars the police can pull them over at any time day or night without just cause and frisk them and search their cars and treat them with disrespect. Whites do not have to face the daily bits of racism tossed their way or see themselves shown on TV and in the media in stereotypical ways.

For instance it is only recently that more African-Americans though still only a small proportion are represented in a non negative fashion in films and on TV. I still remember for instance seeing Sidney Poitier -The desperate Ones, To Sir With Love , Lilies of the Fields, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner in films in the 1960s or a black hero in low budget films such as Night of The Living Dead because in low budget films they could get away with more because the studios weren't involved or later the Black exploitation crime/cop/ gangster films like Shaft etc. which were among my favorites cause they were no nonsense gritty film like Tarantino's today.And if you watch programs like the reality show "Cops" etc. most often the criminals are black and even in the news cases involving blacks assaulting or shooting whites are covered more often and in greater detail then similar crimes committed by whites especially if the victims were black. And some of those cases only become national news because of black activists such as Al Sharpton or organizations such as The Southern Poverty Law Center which is always being attacked by people like Scott Wheeler or Glenn Beck and O'Reilly or even by Republican leaders .

The problem with Glenn Beck and others of his ilk is that they act as if these inequalities and injustices are all in the distant past and that since the Civil War African -Americans have been treated for the most part fairly and justly. But it is within living memory for Blacks and whites that the Civil Rights movement and the March on Washington and the assassination of Martin Luther King took place and that in that time racist and segregationist George Wallace ran for president.

And since that time African-Americans have been murdered just because of their race and even today the perpetrators receive lenient sentences if they are even tried. A Black man gets tied to the back of a car driven by whites and is dragged along at high speeds for a mile or two and it is referred to as a misadventure or just youths with high spirits . African Americans are still occupying American prisons in disproportionate numbers, and are on death row in disproportionate numbers their chances of receiving a stiffer sentence than whites for the same crime is disproportionate.

This is the sort of frustrating ongoing at times hopeless situation which someone like Rev. Wright was preaching about for what is he to tell his congregation that they should just pray more and hope "the white folks" will treat them better. Martin Luther King .Jr. called for prayer but he also called for non-violent non-cooperation and other forms of civil disobedience.

Listening to Glenn Beck and his buddies such as Hannity, O'Reilly, Limbaugh , Savage, Ann Coulter , Michelle Malkin and others it seems that if they had been around during the Civil Rights marches in Selma or Montgomery they would have sent out more troops not to protect these African-Americans but to beat up, shoot and imprison more of the protesters in the name of Law and Order . These Uberconservative media Divas & Professional Agitators would accuse these protesters of being trouble makers, radicals, agitators, communists, unAmerican or even Anti-American as J.Edgar Hoover, Bull Connor , George Wallace and Barry Goldwater and a few million other racist White Americans did. When it comes to the issues of race they are constantly involved in their historical revisionism recreating the "Mythical" golden era of their youth like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting -when shows like Father Knows Best, and Leave it To Beaver were the sort of wholesome TV programs later to be revived as Eight is Enough , Little House on The Prairie and now to their horror these wholesome shows of the Eisenhower era and the Reagan era are replaced by Desperate Housewives, the Sopranos, Family Guy,The Simpsons, or an openly Gay woman Ellen with her talk show or Oprah or shows like Will and Grace. etc. These conservatives see these contemporary programs as part of the "Liberal", "Secular Humanist" or "Socialist anti-American and anti-Christian conspiracy to destroy traditional America.

Anyway we now know from my previous posts that some of the arguments and conspiracy thinking which Glenn Beck is now spewing concerning Obama's radicalism and that Obama is supposedly surrounding himself with radicals comes from the writings and speeches of Scott Wheeler who heads "National Republican Trust PAC" NPR. So now Glenn Beck has a new cause which is to out and oust all of the "Radical Czars" in order to save America from all these "Evil" agents working to destroy America-as Beck becomes a super-hero or the new Joe McCarthy because he has a list of America's enemies.

But according to Scott Wheeler or Glenn Beck and much of the mainstream media just about any person especially if they are not white if they have been involved in any form of activism or made any statement pertaining to racism in America they are by definition "Radicals". So if the individual fought for better housing conditions in their neighborhood or took part in organizing people to register to vote and to teach them about the process and their rights and responsibilities or if they took part in anti-war demonstrations or signed petitions against the Iraq War or against the abuse and torture of "detainees" or marched in a Pro-choice march or were involved with defending an issue such as the Separation of Church and State or stood up at a school board meeting or a PTA meeting and argued that Creationism or Intelligent Design should not be taught in schools as if it were a scientific theory then Wheeler or the Religious Right, and Uberconservatives would call such people radicals.

In the final analysis they only want Uberconservatives and or "Real Americans" who are Good Bible Believing Christians who show the right kind of respect for the "White Culture" (Beck, Buchanan etc.) to take any position in the government whether Supreme Court Judge to an advisory position to the president to the secretaries to the those working in the mail room or in the cafeterias etc. Most of these conservatives for instance a hate on for Darwin or think its Okay for Americans to torture detainees or that there should not be separation of church and state and that even now no one should be questioning America's right to invade and occupy Iraq or Iran in the future.

Meet My New Best Friend

Clearly, the NRT-PAC has a new lease on life and a new promoter in the erstwhile Glenn Beck and his Fox News “family.” Take a look at these two compilation videos and draw your own conclusions.The first is a compilation of new and classic NRT-PAC ads; the video below it is a compilation of Glenn Beck’s programs from this past week. The Beck compilation was put together by Jed Lewison at DailyKos. And appeared on KosTv on August 28th.

Glenn Beck Full Mental Beck -

The Pundits Are Running the Asylum

This past week, though, Beck has been acting even stranger than usual...Beck seemed to be more out of his depth than usual.Every day he exhorted his audience to pay close attention, to take notes, to tape all broadcasts and write them to CDs (in case They shut down the Internets) and to tell friends to tune in because what he had to say was “RILLY, RILLY IMPORTANT!!! (I half expected to hear the Emergency Broadcast System break in.)

Now none of us should expect too much of Glenn, he’s had some misfortune in his life that he’s only too happy to share, his education consists of a High School diploma and, before you get started, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that unless of course you choose to set yourself up as a political pundit responsible for the “enlightenment” of a vast media market and spend your days dissecting, analyzing and criticizing heads of state, Supreme Court Justices, military leaders, Departments of Government, etc.

Throughout this past week, Beck proceeded to ramble, rave and flowchart about his theories on President Obama’s special advisers – a gang of radical, revolutionary “czars.” Beck levied the weighty charge that these czars were “community organizers,” Socialist/Marxist/Communist rabble-rousers who were setting up a “Thug-ocracy” and warning that we will all be sorry if we don’t stop them immediately. This diatribe was liberally laced with random photos of mostly black men in dark clothing with sunglasses on.

And here are a few things you should know about National Republican Trust PAC (as Will Evans, an reporter said, last Fall: “You know you’re bigtime when dedicates a full article to debunking your ad.”)

Right after National Republican Trust PAC came on the scene, in October, 2008, Joe Miller at wrote an article that included these gems:

“An upstart group calling itself the “National Republican Trust PAC” mixes a pile of false claims and the image of 9/11 mastermind Mohammed Atta to create one of the sleaziest false TV ads of the campaign.”

“The spot falsely claims Obama has a “plan” to issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. In fact, Obama has said quite specifically, “I am not proposing that that’s what we do.”

“The ad implies such licenses would enable terrorist attacks. In fact, Atta wouldn’t have needed one to carry out his attacks.”

“It claims that Obama’s health care plan will apply to illegal immigrants. But Obama has stated quite clearly that his plan “does not” cover illegal immigrants.”

“The ad falsely claims that Obama’s plan ‘gives illegals Social Security benefits,’ which is also flatly untrue.

“The National Republican Trust PAC came into being Sept. 26, when it first registered with the Federal Election Commission. By Oct. 15 it had reported raising $463,000 for its anti-Obama campaign. (Update: In an e-mail to supporters on Oct. 29, the group said it had raised more than $3 million.) It has reported spending a total of $902,604 to attack Obama, according to the most recent report filed Oct. 26. It has reported spending substantial sums to the conservative Web site Newsmax and to other vendors for “email communication” opposing Obama’s election, and to a Virginia company called Integram for “direct mail.” It has also listed expenditures for “media production” and a “media buy.”"executive director as Scott Wheeler, who also writes articles for Newsmax, which the NRT PAC pays to distribute anti-Obama e-mail messages, many of which are little more than fundraising pleas.”

UPDATE: During the 2008 presidential campaign, the NRT-PAC spent $8.19 million on ads attacking Barack Obama (in two months time).

And finally, Jim Harper, of the Cato Institute which advises the Department of Homeland Security on data privacy had this to say about NRT-PAC:

“This is terror-pandering of the highest order. While it’s true that several 9/11 hijackers got driver’s licenses and other documents, this has the same relationship to the success of their attacks as the brand of shoes they wore. They could have used their Saudi passports to board flights that day, and the same people in the same circumstances could get on planes today. Even if the REAL ID Act were implemented and we all carried a national ID, terrorists would not be prevented from boarding U.S. flights.”

and so it goes,
