Beck 'On Crack, Taking Stupid Pills' Say Mika, Joe
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 08/27/2010 5:10:14 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

When Joe Scarborough wondered out loud "how many times can you set your hair on fire?" before viewers stop being shocked, you might have thought he was talking about Keith Olbermann, the man whose scenery-chewing soliloquies inspired an instant-classic Saturday Night Live skit.

But no, Joe was speaking of Glenn Beck. Perhaps the shot Scarborough took at Ed Schultz a couple weeks ago exhausted his monthly quota of internecine MSNBC insults.

On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski and Joe took turns ripping Beck's promotion of the rally at the Lincoln Memorial he's staging Saturday on the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Riffing off a Colbert Show segment showing clips of Beck, Mika claimed he sounded like a drama student "on crack." Scarborough, suggesting Mika might have gone too far, surmised Beck might merely have taken "stupid pills."

I remember when Joe Scarborough used to believe in America (I think).

What’s really funny is that liberals believe that these are convincing arguments for their point of view.

I have a bad feeling that Beck’s 8/28 rally is going to get disrupted.

I frankly wouldn’t attend because he is too wishy-washy for me. But I hope nothing happens

Scarborough couldn’t fill up a phone booth if he was to try to assemble a rally.

Every one of Beck’s critics go after his techniques, not his message, because his message (returning to our country’s foundation) cannot be attacked.

It is interesting that many here on FR take him so seriously. Like you say his audience is terrible. I bet Pat Buchanan is really sorry he made an exclusive deal with PMSNBC and is now in oblivion.

Well if it does get disrupted, maybe it won't turn out wishy-washy and you'll be sorry you missed it! Bravehearts come in handy sometimes.

Those libs are scared spitless that the stranglehole they have on the Blacks in this country by keeping them in the victim class is going to be erroded. If Beck and Alvida show that MLK wasn’t the hate filled antagonist that the libs portray the Blacks might start to realize that the content of Character thing was really true.

An earlier post claiming Beck is “wishy washy” makes no sense. He’s been consistantly delivering the same message for 2+ years. “Trust in God”, “Question with boldness”, “Stand up for your principles” etc. He quotes from our founders, the bible and truly does love this country.

“Restoring Honor” is a theme that makes it difficult for an America hating progressive to smear so they came up with the MLK angle. There could be trouble, no doubt. But I’m going with my wife and 13 year old daughter because it’s important to distinguish the patriots from the kool aid drinking socialists. This will glaringly show the difference.

The fact that they would feel the need to send disruptors or even consider it, gives credence to Beck.

All law enforcement knows that just about every Conservative Rally that has been held in the last two years:

1. Virtually no arrests of conservatives
2. Virtually no violence started by conservatives
3. And every place has been left cleaner than when we arrived.
4. Even the News now demonstrates, it is the left who commit acts of hate & violence.

NONE of that can be said for the other side.

May God watch and hold these folks in the palm of His hand.

These two are just warming up the drumbeat against Beck. The left plans to destroy Beck, utterly and decisively, with this rally. There will be plants. There will be incidents.
Beck is on to them but let’s remember what they say about people who buy ink by the barrel.

Interesting link.

The Rev-uh-ruuunnnd Walter Fauntroy sure is using some hate-filled and divisive rhetoric in his National Press Club appearance today. I would even go so far as to say that his angry rhetoric is stoking the fires for violence to occur.

And all this ugliness is coming from a man, a supposed man of the cloth, who in the very early 1970s ran his political campaign in DC on a slogan of "He's gonna get us all together."

I can still hear that tune from his campaign commercials on my black and white TV, sung by a few female voices, gospel-style... "He's gonna get us all together..."

It seems to me that he has hung up his cloak of brotherly love and non-violence and is now wearing a radical's suit of hatred and confrontation.

Does anyone think Mika and Joe could get 1 million people to interrupt their lives and travel from across the nation to attend an outdoor rally in DC in August? Didn’t think so.

I'd put forth that Mika and Joe were on crack, but I don't want to impugn honorable crackheads like that.

Our nation has become so jealous of anyone with any success it is scary. If you think about it, all of our problems have come from being jealous of what someone else has, and feeling you have a “right” to have it too—without any of the work.

Beck IS wishy-washy.....attacking Birthers...saying Prop 8, anti-gay marraige is “no issue”...having a Mormon-based rally without mentioning such to his audience...that is wishy-washy

It does demonstrate how left-wing NutWhackJob PMSLSDNBC is....if they are so afraid of “conservative” Beck

Pathetic. How these people even get a pedastal on which to speak is beyond me. Taking a hack-job clip, and using it as evidence to repeat “I don’t get it” (of course you don’t Joe - you’re too &@#ing stupid) shows how arrogant and ignorant you are.
Beck and his supporters have more dignity and respect than these tools ever will.
