Bill Kristol, Rich Lowry and Joe Klein Gang Up on Glenn Beck
The Radio Patriot ^ | Feb. 7, 2011 | Andrea Shea King

Posted on 02/07/2011 2:15:38 PM PST by patriotgal1787

By Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King

Conservative and liberal intellectual titans took turns this weekend savaging radio and TV talk show host Glenn Beck for his reporting this past week on the alliance between the communist left and radical Islamists. Beck has credited our reporting at Big Government and Big Peace.

Code Pink banner ad as it appeared on the website of The Muslim Brotherhood, January 2010. In attacking Beck, the trio of D.C./N.Y. elitists displayed a disturbing ignorance of our Nation's enemies and their tactics to undermine the West and its allies as well as infiltrate Western political establishments--including the presidency of Barack Obama.

Writing at the Weekly Standard, editor Bill Kristol accused Beck of "hysteria" and "inventing" the links between the left and the Islamists. For good measure Kristol plays the "Bircher" card against Beck like Jesse Jackson plays the race card against conservatives:

But hysteria is not a sign of health. When Glenn Beck rants about the caliphate taking over the Middle East from Morocco to the Philippines, and lists (invents?) the connections between caliphate-promoters and the American left, he brings to mind no one so much as Robert Welch and the John Birch Society. He’s marginalizing himself, just as his predecessors did back in the early 1960s.
Kristol's smug assault on Beck was seconded by National Review editor Rich Lowry, who republished Kristol's attack, saying it was "well-deserved":
Bill Kristol has an editorial on conservatives and Egypt. He takes a well-deserved shot at Glenn Beck’s latest wild theorizing:
Time Magazine's Joe Klein gleefully picked up Kristol's savaging of Beck and jumped in with his own vengeance, calling Beck a "free-range lunatic" for reporting about "his hilarious commie-muslim caliphate delusions" Klein piles on by promoting an alleged whispering campaign by Republicans to get Beck kicked off Fox for hurting "their brand."
Today, (hat tip/Ben Smith), we have Bill Kristol sticking with the demonstrators and calling out free-range lunatic Glenn Beck, for his hilarious commie-muslim caliphate delusions. This is not unimportant. Kristol lies very close to the throbbing heart of the Fox News sensibility. And I've heard, from more than a couple of conservative sources, that prominent Republicans have approached Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes about the potential embarrassment that the paranoid-messianic rodeo clown may bring upon their brand. The speculation is that Beck is on thin ice. His ratings are dropping, too--which, in the end, is a good part of what this is all about. But I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a mirror-Olbermann situation soon.
Up until Saturday, it was liberals at MSNBC, the Daily Beast and Media Matters who were mocking, but not refuting Beck over his factual reporting of the alliance between the left, radical Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist groups like Hamas in Egypt.

Kristol's attack has opened the gates for conservative elites to join liberals in forcing themselves on Beck and venting their welled-up frustration at a him for the crime of spoiling their exclusive elitist worldview.

Bryan Preston at Pajamas Media's Tatler has been one of the few to defend Beck. In doing so, Preston links to our Big Peace article about Code Pink funding the attempted overthrow of the Egyptian government and the Council on Foreign Relations for Hamas' ties to the Muslim Brotherhood:

Note to Rich Lowry. Whatever one thinks of Beck, he’s not inventing connections between the American left and the “caliphate promoters.” Hamas, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood according to those noted Birchers the Council on Foreign Relations, is among the caliphate promoters, and Code Pink has long been in league with them. What impact that alliance has is certainly debatable, and I doubt that Code Pink is any more effective in Egypt than it has been in the US, but the alliance itself is not an invention of Beck’s.
As a side note, what Preston fails to appreciate is that Code Pink operating in Egypt and Gaza for the past two years has had the ears of President Obama, Hamas, the wife of Hosni Mubarak, the Muslim Brotherhood and other organizers of the anti-Mubarak protests. One would be hard-pressed to find another group, even our CIA, which is that wired in to Egypt right now.

But at least Preston acknowledges the basic fact of the alliance.

Kristol, Lowry and Klein savage Beck for informing his audience about what has been reported (unrefuted, we might add) at Big Peace and Big Government documenting the ties between President Obama, Code Pink, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Even Code Pink doesn't bother to deny what Beck has reported. A statement posted at the Code Pink Web site denies credit for instigating the protests in Egypt, but ignores the group's ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood as well Code Pink's ties to former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn:

Glenn Beck's dangerous rhetoric - blaming CODEPINK for Egypt Unrest: Middle East unrest according to Glenn Beck and friends,The Guardian, February 3, 2011

CODEPINK Response: Of all the things Codepink HAS accomplished this past year we just can't take credit for the popular uprising in Egypt. Despite allegations that the pro-democracy demonstrators are led by militants and extremists, in fact the millions in Tahrir Square are predominately young people sick and tired of being unemployed in a repressive police state. All many have ever known in the despotic rule of Pres. Mubarak, propped up by $1 billion in aid every year from the U.S. taxpayers.

Crowds in Cairo and other cities also include pharmacists, grandmothers, army officers, former employees of the state controlled t.v. station -- and yes, CODEPINK activists whose large pink banner "Solidarity with the Egyptian People! Codepink.org" was photographed in Tahrir and seen around the world.

We are proud of those who call for democracy no matter where in the world they are! And we call on Pres. Mubarak to step down now and allow for an orderly transition to a government of the people, by the people, and for the people!

Code Pink fails to mention the Muslim Brotherhood's 'day of rage' protest a week ago Friday that saw mass riots and images of Cairo burning transmitted around the world.

Also, while demurring on taking credit for the protests, Code Pink has elsewhere claimed to inspire by example the protests.

Here are some facts for Kristol, Lowry, and Klein:

Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans is a Democratic party activist who was tapped as an early fundraiser by Barack Obama. Evans has visited the Obama White House, met with the President and his staff.

Since Obama's election, Jodie Evans and Code Pink have acted as go betweens from terrorists to Obama.

In recent years, Code Pink has met and worked with Islamic terrorists and state sponsors of terrorism including Iran, Syria, Cuba, Hamas, the Taliban and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Code Pink recently ran banner ads on the English language Web site of the Muslim Brotherhood beseeching the brotherhood and their jihadist readers to "Join us in cleansing our country."

Code Pink provoked a violent response from the Egyptian government while agitating in Cairo with Ayers, Dohrn and over a thousand global leftists to break the embargo of Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Domestically, Code Pink works with communist groups including the Revolutionary Communist Party, the Workers World Party and the Party for Socialism and Liberation. Code Pink co-founders Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans are also in the leadership of the Progressive Democrats of America alongside several Democrat members of Congress.

Since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, the radical left has made common cause with radical Islamists. Beck showed a video compilation documenting that alliance featuring leftist and Islamist speakers at so-called antiwar rallies that were broadcast on C-SPAN.

If he is to be criticized for anything, Beck should be criticized for being so late to recognize the global conspiracy between the left and Islamists to bring down America, Israel and the West. It is true that Islamists want to establish a global caliphate and Marxists want to establish a global communist government. How will the two partners reconcile their different end-goals should they succeed in taking down America? We hope we don't have to find out.

Code Pink and the left don't care about democracy in Egypt. Their goal is to take out an American ally and partner with Israel for peace. If you doubt this, read our Big Peace article detailing Code Pink's history of subverting American allies like Egypt while propping up our enemies like Iran.

Beck also reported on the rally in California a week ago co-led by Code Pink that called for the lynching of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife, and the "quarantine" of conservative financiers the Koch brothers.

Words mean something. When those opposed to America and her allies like Code Pink call for "cleansing" "lynchings" and "quarantines" of their enemies we should be alarmed. Especially so when those calling for such actions work with groups and governments like Hamas, Iran and Cuba who really do "cleanse," "lynch" and "quarantine" their political enemies.

Kristol, Lowry and Klein should take a stroll outside their elite comfort zones and attend an anti-war rally or so-called pro democracy-for-Egypt rally in New York or D.C. If they did, they would see for themselves examples of the alliance between the left and Islamists in action.

Rich Lowry has not been the slightest bit bashful about taking the National Review ever further down the toilet. That thing is dead to me. And Kristol is another one who has been in DC too long. I’m sure he’s still got that goofy smile on his face as he enjoys the accolades and backslaps of Joe Klein and the liberal Democrat newsrooms there.

I don’t agree with Glenn Beck on everything, but I certainly agree with him about this.

Good grief. The left and the Islamists have been working together for decades. And these jerks didn’t notice? As for the current business, starting with the Turkish flotilla that was sent into Israeli waters, the connection couldn’t be more obvious and direct.

I saw how Lowry was snippy with Hannity a few days ago. It caught Sean off guard.

Here’s the Muslim Brotherhood imam Glenn is talking about right now - he was on the list of a money-laundering bank - everyone knew what they were up to and zero was done - none of them went to jail either - zilch was done

No one reads the Weakley Standard and NR is a shell of itself since Buckley died. Beck has some actual proof of the Caliphate. These two dopes have nothing but smears. I am not the biggest Beck fan, but he has connected the dots on this.

Remember that Lowery just got done this weekend pushing for a Jeb Bush Presidential campaign. Does not seem too Conservative, does it?

instead of these clowns just putting people down who never went to the ivy league schools then they should listen, investigate and then report if it is true or not.

Of course they won’t as they’re just lazy and think they already know everything.

As for the likes of Hannity OR, they can go to hell, they don’;t have any guts to report on anything like social issues or Egypt because they would rather take conservative money and not ruffle any feathers.

Guess their liberal Manhattan cocktail pals are more important than the causes they pretend to stand for.

Yet Another RINO Wet Dream

http://radiopatriot.wordpress.com/2011/02/07/yet-another-rino-wet-dream-jeb-bush/

Rich Lowry at National Review has a glowing piece about Jeb Bush for President.

Bush 2012 — John J. Miller has a cover story in the new issue of National Review that’s a compelling portrait of the accomplishments of Jeb Bush. Four years after leaving the Florida governor’s mansion, he remains one of the most impressive Republican politicians in the country …

I live in Florida. Jeb Bush was my governor. He’s part of Florida’s RINO-GOP establishment. For that reason alone, I wouldn’t vote for him. Want another? His brother George W. is not a conservative. He got us further enmired in bigger government with unconstitutional bloated government programs and saved free markets by screwing the free market. Birds of a feather?

Here’s a couple more — his mother, the estimable Pearled One shot off her mouth about Sarah Palin in a way that was totally unnecessary and pissed off the base. Big time. His father, George HW – the Ivy League blueblood RINO whose career in the CIA was unremarkable and presidency even less so. Like father, like son?

But that aside, even if all the above weren’t enough to convince conservatives that Jebby ain’t the man for the job, I have but two words:

Terry Schiavo.

While governor, Jeb could have put a stop to the forced starvation and murder of the young brain-damaged Florida woman whose husband tried to starve and dehydrate her to death for years.

Article I, Section 2 (“Basic Rights”) of Florida’s constitutionstatesthe following: “All natural persons, female and male alike, are equal before the law and have inalienable rights, among which are the right to enjoy and defend life and liberty. … No person shall be deprived of any right because of race, religion, national origin, orphysical disability.” The courts have failed to act on this clear right; therefore, it is incumbent and lawful for another branch of government to act.

Terry Schiavo. Let that burn into your brain once more. Jeb Bush/Terry Schiavo.

What other bright ideas does Lowry et al have? Oven Mitts? Please. Jeb Bush. Another bad choice by the RINO crowd.

Bill Kristol only advanced Palin's name in 2008 because he thought she would help Obama get elected.

Kristol is a stooge. He and most of the "National Review" & "Weekly Standard" Republicans don't care who wins just as long as they keep their power.

Exactly. Who is doing real reporting? Almost no one. Beck is digging, trying to put the puzzle together, but almost no one else is. If you don't agree with the picture that Beck is presenting, do some more digging, show us what he has missed, show us the missing pieces.

Instead, its all ad hominems. No analysis.

Mubarak bad. Mobs good. No one trying to figure out who is pulling what strings. Its rather like the revolution in Ukraine, which just happened magically, as far as the newsies were concerned, and only later do you find out all the cogs and wheels and connecting rods.

My own personal 2 cents again...

Bill Kristol must just be planning on transforming weekly standard into a mainstream or leftwing rag. Why would I bother reading people who deny a simple reality that A LOT of left wing anarchist types and muzzies enjoy each other’s company ? Does he need to see videos ?

National Review is an “old machine” big tent where they have trouble finding space for Bibles; they missed the last election. Oh, and NR, by the way, you can’t disparage an evil dictator being supported for 30 years unless you kept jumping up and down the whole time calling for his ouster. Uh.. duh.

American Thinker is the new National Review for me. Don’t the names say it all ?

In defense of all conservative publishers that aren’t solely a website: now that islamic radicalism and sodomy are actively encouraged by our laws, conservative publishers have a much more difficult task remaining true to their principles. The truth is not always legal today.

Now we see the importance of working on hearts and minds of our wishy-washy friends to maintain a voting majority and why we can’t nominate and elect folks with weak characters.

This all has an old fashioned horse 'n buggy feeling to it.

That's not to say that Beck is the wave of the future -- maybe of the moment, but I doubt he'll have much staying power outside of his own fiefdom -- but nobody much cares about the fatwas of the establishment press anymore.

I was always suspicious, but now I am 100% convinced that everyone in the MSM is a Liberal. They just make their money by taking a political position for entertainment purposes.

It makes sense. If you are a Conservative commentator why would you shoot down Sarah palin?

you know is it so hard to hear Beck and say this guy is wrong and we’ll prove him wrong?

Of course it is because Beck is not stupid and uses their words and messages against them so what do they do?
Go out and character assassinate.

I’ve met plenty of folks who say Beck is this or that and he might be on some things but he’;s right on this reporting and it is driving them crazy because they cannot prove him wrong.

When I ask have you seen him they always say no I would never watch him.

It just goes to show the ignorance of many in this country today that they can’t do their own research and investigate.

Good for Beck and while I do not agree with him on everything and have not watched him for some time I do think that this investigative work is where he is at his best and I’m now watching him again since Egypt went up.

These elitist ivy league snobs are not merging with the left knowing their time on the right is coming to an end.

It was never about speaking up for what they said they stand for it is all about money and power.
hannity etc are the same, they cannot report any of this they cannot report on social conservative issues.

For me they can piss off now, I want men and women who have guts and can speak the truth, I might not like the truth but at least I get the truth.
