Yet Another Crazy Conservative

Original post made by Janet, Vineyard Hills, on Jul 14, 2009

On his show, Glenn Beck runs a little conspiracy-theory-meets-Kevin-Bacon-game segment called "In a Nutshell" in which he loosely connects people via common organizations. Usually this means connecting minorities to ACORN -- you know, the group which the far-right is painting as the KKK for brown people. Here, for instance, Beck connects Sonia Sotomayor with ACORN.

Well I can connect Glenn Beck with ACORN, too. Glenn Beck hosts a radio show on Premiere Radio Networks. Premiere Radio also carries a show by Jesse Jackson. And you know what that means... ACORN helped Jesse Jackson win 30 delegates at the 1988 Democratic Convention. Glenn Beck: guilty!

How about this one. I can also connect Glenn Beck with the death of a little dog named Snuggles. Glenn Beck's radio show is carried by Premiere Radio Networks. The network also carries On Air with Ryan Seacrest. Ryan Seacrest took over hosting the American Top 40 which was previously hosted by (Lebanese evildoer) Casey Kasem. And Casey Kasem once freaked out while broadcasting a story about the death of a little dog named Snuggles. Is Glenn Beck responsible for the death of Snuggles? You decide. As for me, I say -- Glenn Beck: guilty!

So, by your own admission ACORN is bad...a leftist, criminal enterprise.
You are connected to them as well, since your tax dollars go to support this group of voter intimidators.
Next, you'll be defending the black panthers carry weapons in front of polling places during the 2008 elections.....after all, they (and presumably you) voted for the 'Chsoen One', so you ae guilty by association.
See how that works.....? 7 degrees of separation.

I don't think that's what Janet said at all.
And as for "The Chosen One," I assume you are referring to our President, President Obama? Yes, he is indeed the one who was chosen to be President of these United States.

Glenn Beck spreads misinformation and creates paranoia.

You should teach "Right-wing Fear Mongering 101" over at Las Positas College. It’s almost as if your brain is controlled by AM Radio and Fox News. Go back down to your Glenn Beck "doom bunker" and don't forget to take your medication (Rush Limbaugh approved oxycontin).

Attack! Attack! Attack!
This forum started with the subject 'Yet Another Crazy Conservative'. And I'm guilty of initiating an attack?!

Fear Mongering? You mean like global warming? Health care crisis? Energy crisis?

Good idea regarding teaching at Las Positas! As soon as the state decides to start paying cash again (instead of IOU's) I'll take up a position teaching the young impressionable Democrat offspring.

I didn't say you are guilty of initiating an attack. Glenn Beck is.

"Fear Mongering? You mean like global warming? Health care crisis? Energy crisis?" No, more like depopulation policies and job killing machines. And if you want to deny global warming, the health care crisis, and the energy crisis, you are living someplace different than I am.

Don't worry about *my* young, impressionable democratic offspring - I will raise them to believe in the importance of making the world a better place for everyone - even blowhard right-wing mouthpieces.
