FIRE GLEN BECK... and all hatemongers

by Lydia Cornell @ 9:15 PM PDT

Imus lost his MSNBC show, a signal that sexist, racist hate-speak will not be tolerated on the public airwaves. But much worse than Imus are Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage — who also have their own shows. They systematically engage in hate-speak. Glen Beck has actually screamed out death wishes to his fellow Americans, and said he "hates the 911 and Katrina victims." I just discovered a website called FIRE GLEN BECK. Out of 1,750 comments, here is one that jumped out at me:

"Glen Beck is factually wrong, intellectually lazy and willfully misleading on the vast majority of subjects that he discusses. But the reason he should be fired is that his hate mongering (hate pornography) is below the dignity and quality that I at one time took for granted with CNN and Time-Warner. He, at best, sows division and hate when our country is in desperate need of healing. Blame-shifting, scapegoating and resulting violent hate crimes become more and more commonplace in the last decade. There seems to be a growing number of stressed, ignorant, volatile, hateful and dangerously imbalanced people in this country. These are people who may well be motivated to commit violent acts by Beck's dishonest vilification of both individuals and large swathes of American society. His hate filled rants could result in more attacks on judges, physicians, clergy, congressmen, professors, environmentalists etc. Please help lead CNN back in the direction of decency, principles, and objectivity. Some of CNN's programming and personnel decisions (as with other networks) are starting to make those in the 70's movie "Network" look highly responsible by comparison."

Hi Lydia!

Yes, Glen Beck should go too! He drinks way too much Kool-Aid!

Seriously, though, I can't stand the guy!

LOL

Mike said...

Hey Lydia, your getting around.

Mike said...

BTW, another great article.......well said!

Suzie-Q said...

Yes, that's a great post Lydia! Those folks have gotten away with racism and evil hatefulness for too long.

Time to move their Kool-Aid stand!

LOL

Two Lydia posts in one day. We are hitting the jackpot.

Now if they would fire Beck and Limbaugh, life would be better.

Larry:

I could name a few more evildoer names to that list to fire and life would be on it's way to getting better!

Larry said...

Suzie,

There are so many it would create a bondfire of massive proportions.

Did you know Glen Beck may have Danny Bonaduce be his fill-in when he is off?

Mike:

Are you serious? Is he trying to give CNN a bad name or somethin'?

LOLMAO

Larry said...

Bonaduce is a nut and mouthy at that.

Suzie-Q said...

He started his radio career on WEGX in Philadelphia. Bonaduce went to KKFR in Phoenix, Arizona, a stint which soon ended after he was charged with assaulting a transvestite prostitute, Darius Barney.

LOLMAO

Larry said...

Bonaduce is getting another divorce and he has been on Beck's radio show lot and Beck is thinking of giving him the guest host.

Hopefully that will backfire on Beck.

That Partridge boy just ain't right.

Suzie-Q said...

Larry:

Birds of a feather flock together. I haven't seen or heard one neocon yet that is "right"!

LOL

Larry said...

Susie,

That is true and to think Teri Hatcher is also a Bush lover is mind boggling.

Mike said...

Bonaduce is a Neo Con?

I knew he was kinda wacked but never figured him for a Neo Con.

Larry said...

Bonaduce has been on Beck's show spouting some of that dribble.

Suzie-Q said...

Larry:

Teri Hatcher reminds me of one of those Stepford Wives..

Like a robot money machine!

LOL

Suzie-Q said...

Well, folks I'm off to dream of a better tomorrow...which includes no more neocon Kool-Aid stands!

Goodnight everyone! ;)

Larry said...

Suzie,

If Teri Hatcher is a Bush lover she must be a robotic Stepford Wife.

Something has to be wrong with her.

Good Morning Justice Bloggers...

Clif,

Unless the GOPs don't help Impeach Bush & Cheney and begin the healing that deep wound is going to turn into a real Bloody Civil War.

This time it will not be North and South. This time it will include even family members in disagreement.

State against State, County against County, Even City against city.

Mindsets are already made up!

The only thing propping up civility and keeping that from happening at the moment imho is the Economy for now.

If the Econ Tanks you can bet your ass that a Civil War will break out in America because sides will blame the other.

The Majority is already for Impeachment of these two clowns and there's heavy contention for the minority keeping that from happening.

So what will it be America ?
Healing or Civil War ?

Regime Change is Coming to America as I've said and it may be a Revolutionary one!

I guarantee it!
