    He's is absolutely wrong. His math is awful and it is not like he backs it up with facts or anything.

    re: Beck
    re: the dread spectre of Marxists in classrooms
    and the more subtle and personal danger of shouting LALALALALA I CANT HEAR YOU.

    To be honest, I wasn't quite sure what you were trying to say, either.
    Video clip was of a dangerous "Marxist" laying the smack down on radical faculty members, some 80years ago.

    What I fault Beck most of for though (and what depresses me, way more than a lack of logic and math talent)
    is a profound deficit of lulz.

    I seem to have missed whatever point I was getting at too.
    Have a kittenpile.



    Edit: I think I agree with you, unless there was sarcasm in your OP that went totally over my head.

    I think its just funny to post it. Let people watch it without it being filtered through Jon Stewart and let them make up their own minds. Maybe the second video was making fun of the left. Probably the right. Or making fun of the left that think it was making fun of the right. More likely making fun of the right making fun of the left. Unless I'm a troll.

    Or maybe people should just listen to Beck and decide for themselves. Sometimes the guy gets it right. Sometimes his is awful and wrong. But I love listening to people on both sides calling him crazy.

    I watched the whole show. It was the first time I have watched raw Beck outside of The Daily Show.

    Now what do I win for watching?

    Glenn Beck isn't nuts. He's a shrewd operator who knows how to build a cult-of-personality. Although since being canned at Fox he wants to move-on from scaring old people and build a new media empire "targeting the youth" and presumably the advertising dollars that the 18-34 yo demographic attracts. That's why he considers Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert one of his main opponents in the "media", he'd like to poach their audiences.

    Beck couldnt even touch Stewart and a republican, aside from a few, saying something that makes sense aside from lying for their own agenda is nothing new.

    I thought this thread was going to be about music :(

    Me too. :(

    I was hoping to discuss the batshit lyrics of weird and humorless scientology cult member Beck the musician.

    From “Devil’s Haircut:

    Heads are hanging from the garbage man trees/Mouthwash jukebox gasoline
    From “The New Pollution”:

    She’s got cigarette on each arm/She’s got the lily-white cavity crazes/She’s got a carburettor tied to the moon/Pink eyes looking to the food of the ages

    Johnny, i don't personally consider myself either "left" or "right". sometimes it looks like both sides get so entrenched in their own rigid world view that they seem to do nothing but endlessly fight in the most pointless manner, if you know what i mean. Using fear to manipulate ratings is not effective, when one is truly interested in having a constructive dialogue within the context of a larger, all encompassing world view.

    I did, too! I am disappoint.
  33. JohnnyRUClear Member

    Agreed on that, which is why pukes who throw around thinkstop terms like "anti-religious bigot" "anti-Semitic" instead of dealing in facts get my goat -- and I know you probably had Beck in mind rather than the WP author, but the shoe fits both.

    i think it can be tricky, and this is where some striving for Objectivity becomes important. There is little actual objectivity, it seems, a lot of the time, and people can take whatever information they may gather to prove their own world view or position at any given time. that is the kinda funny/weird thing. just look at some of those stupid polls that people refer to, as if it is actually any clear indicator of anything. I certainly would not stand in the way of anyone seeking to learn about whatever it is which may be of interest to them. Truthfully, I haven't really followed this story. It is not surprising to me that a man who apparently thinks that the "Protocols of Zion" is the gospel truth, would be seen as being terribly anti-semitic, and so if someone applied that type of terminology to him, i might be able to see where they are coming from. That book is a work of fiction. period. In challenging times, people quite often want to find a scape goat to blame.

    Beck parlayed his routine into a multi million dollar career. So did Rush Limbaugh. So have lots of self-appointed know it all expurts.
    I don't listen to any of them anymore. it bores me to death.

    Here I thought if I opened up this thread I would see a large slowpoke.jpg or a rickroll...

    ...Glenn Beck nuts? I thought that was a given...


    You really wouldn't do that would you? Unless you like the feeling of having over 9,000 people wanting to place your dented head on a pole while wild boars tear apart the remainder of your body.

    That does sound at least not boring.

    Only a total wack-job would think otherwise.

    I like Beck's lyrics and music. But I was hoping to discuss how batshit insane he is. Since Beck is a Scilon, is would be helpful if topics about the batshit insane right-winger include Glenn in their title.

  40. You're missing the fact that his signal to noise ratio is tilted way too far in favor of the noise. It's like sorting through 12 gallons of shit to find an ounce of clean water: it's pointless and you'll get infected if you try.
