PEOPLE ARE WATCHING THIS LUNATIC (Liberal whining about Glenn Beck effectively countering)
The Washington Monthly ^ | March 17, 2009 | Steve Benen

Posted on 03/17/2009 4:16:50 PM PDT by JSDude1

Glenn Beck, Fox News' deranged media personality, has been telling a national television audience that the Obama administration might be setting up secret "concentration camps" to lock up conservatives. The president, Beck believes, may be using FEMA in this conspiratorial drive towards "a totalitarian state."

Beck, who has already voiced his affinity for the John Birch Society, is also distributing Birchers' literature to his audiences.

If he were just some random right-wing blogger, it would be easier to laugh this off.

This guy (Benen) is hillarious (he won't be effective however, because Glenn Beck speaks the truth-or at least attempts to, and "connects the dots"). I hope Glenn continues and drives these guys nuts..!

That’s odd, I thought it was George Bush that was building the concentration camps.

Glen Beck is funny, and right.

I watch Glenn every day. His numbers are going through the roof. He has hit a nerve and the left wing media knows it. Watch for more personal attacks which will only drive his ratings even higher.

We’re going to beat these people at their own game. The libs are so stupid they don’t even realize they are helping us out by villifying Rush, Glen, Sean and others.

Liberals hate facts, in fact, when ZerO announced no continued medical care for vets, a Lib in my office said “he didn’t have enought information” for form an opinion.

No issue with illegal healthcare, however.

The Lib mind is sick.

He is also planting a lot of seeds of thought in some pretty dense heads...like the ones who blindly voted for what they thought was our first black president, and are just now finding out that they were voting for our first “RED” president.

As an old time BIRCHER, I keep remembering one of their more popular bumper stickers:

“LOOKS LIKE THE BIRCHERS WERE RIGHT!”

Sadly, because too few citizens bothered themselves to study and comprehend what was going on then, the statists became so emboldened that they no longer bothered to conceal their plans for the rest of us — and the West.

That brings us to NOW where, after multiple generations of leftist indoctrination and dumbing down in the government
schools, we have THE ONE — A FLAMING FASCIST or SOCIALIST (it’s not clear which but does it matter?) — in the White House.

And in the immortal words of one James Durante, “YA AIN’T SEEN NUTTIN’ YET!”

He’s been screaming about a coming multi-trillion dollar collapse for a couple of years before it happened. And then it happened.

I used to think he was overdoing it.

MEMO TO GLEN: WATCH YOUR “6” AND EITHER PACK HEAT OR HAVE PLENTY OF SECURITY.
The 1983 murder of Larry McDonald (along with 267 other men, women and kids aboard KAL007) was but another example of how the left deals with those who become effective in opposing them:
Step 1: Ignore
Step 2: Ridicule/mock
Step 3: ELIMINATE!

Not that black, either. His “black” father comes from the Luo tribe in Kenya which is as much Arab as African in origin. I remember seeing the picture of Barack Hussein standing with the Rev Wright and thinking American Blacks really think they are voting for one of their own? Both of them look ethnic “white,” at least in that picture. But, hey, if Bilius Clintonus was the First Black President, I guess it works.

Obama administration might be setting up secret "concentration camps" to lock up conservatives

Future headline:

"The Obama Youth met with sever resistance", The Hope/Change youth train, bringing hope to the world, came under heavy small arms fire when it tried to recruit a church school bus onto the train. None in the church bus was harmed.

that Missouri Law-Enforcement list of “terrorist” leaning citizens..

linton's FBI also had such a list. I imagine it is being resurrected and enhanced for the present administration. Known Fundamentalist Christians and organizations (like churches)were on the list, also, as I remember.

Hussein is also saying at every opportunity that he is going to “take care” of the vets, much better than Bush did. Perhape he will add aggressive assisted suicide to their medical options.

has been telling a national television audience that the Obama administration might be setting up secret "concentration camps" to lock up conservatives.

Beck... is also distributing Birchers' literature to his audiences.

outright lies. I Listen to his radio program and watch his show EVERY DAY. I heard someone call his show a few weeks back about the concentration camps and Glenn said he'd look into it and that he wanted to "quickly debunk this and move on". I have yet to hear back about said concentration camps.

If Glenn is distributing the book, The 5000 Year Leap - the book the libtard calls into question - I have to call glenn and complain cause I ain't gotten mine yet. Back in reality world, he just recommends you read it. Given the recommendation causes such apoplexy in this libtard communist, the book is probably well worth the read, though I haven't gotten there yet.

I'm watching The Lunatic right now. I've programmed my DVR to record it every day.

I hope the ratings people have some way of factoring the number of people who tape Beck's show.

I enjoyed his "You're Not Alone" special this past Friday. Except for the crying. I fast-forwarded past that.
