Skip to comments.Drowning out the hate hustlers: Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck cannot steal America's soul
Posted on 08/30/2010 7:30:51 PM PDT by pissant
Now that irresponsible opportunists have brought many of the misled to Washington, we can begin to contemplate what makes bigotry so appealing. Surely, being able to exclude is one of the great joys of the species because it can give a grand identity to the average person.
That identity as one of the elect made the red glow in Southern white necks. They felt part of a civilization in which they were looked down upon until they put on their costumes, screamed loudly at mob gatherings and committed acts of violence.
While bigotry is as American as apple pie, its shelf life is now rather short. The easily dismissed lies that Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich have used to fire up the true believers will not work. After race-baiting as clearly as they could on the issue of a proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero, all of them have attempted to "clarify" what they actually meant.
The reason that opportunists from the right have had to tread carefully is that nobody today desires to be called a racist. And so they've reframed their Islamophobia as an issue of constitutional rights. This is a variation on the purportedly genteel Southern racists who claimed that the real issue during the civil rights movement was not ethnic exclusion, but the rights of states.

The minority communities you purport to speak for, like the 3000 Dept of Education employees at Rev. Al's rally, will be much better off following bitter race pimp hustlers like Al, Jesse, Jeremiah, and Obama, than to work with their white fellow citizens to finally reach that colorblind society.
In fact, a colorblind society would most certainly NOT be in the race pimps' best interests. There will be no need for such shakedown artists disguised as reverends. In fact, newspapers would likely get rid of such illiterate, deadwood, 'blame whitey' editorialists such as yourself, Stanley.
Yawn. Another non-article of utter lunacy. Remind me again why we bother to post this kind of garbage?
The view from one man’s ceiling. . .
What a fact twisting, Leftist fraud.
Look at all these redneck racist bigots Beck had on stage! Oh, wait a minute. Wrong photo.
Good points pissant. The article is a joke, but your comments are worth reading :).
Beck didn’t trash Democrats. He lifted up Christ.
Blacks and Hispanics joined him to do so.
This imbecile refers to this as hate hustling.
Wow, isn’t this some kind of new record even for the Left?
I love watching Liberals heads explode. They know they are dead meat in November so they are just milking it for however much time they have left. Funny how liberals talk about souls when THEY are the ones who don’t have any
This guy’s a real piece of work. Never heard of him before, but nice of a big city daily to give a forum for this jackass:
Crouch was fired from JazzTimes following his controversial article “Putting the White Man in Charge”, in which he asserted that white critics elevate white jazz musicians beyond their abilities.
Crouch has reacted violently to critics and detractors. At the First Annual Jazz Awards, Crouch was invited to present an award. While reading the nominees, he made disparaging comments about two of them: trumpeter Dave Douglas and pianist Matthew Shipp. After the show, jazz critic Howard Mandel, who was chiefly responsible for creating and organizing the Jazz Awards, confronted Crouch about his earlier comments. After a short argument, Crouch punched Mandel and then was confronted by Shipp, who called Crouch “an Uncle Tom and a fucking loser”. However, the two were quickly separated and a brawl was avoided.
A genuine hate group , Muslims, gets a pass from this bunch. Not only that but leftist lies and disinformation makes these wackos actually commit crimes. Pamala Geller of Atlas Shrugs is now getting death threats thanks to leftist spin. We know who the REAL beaters of the HATE drums are.
America haters like Stanley Crotch are losing their grip on reality and everything else. Crying in their Starbucks isn’t going to help. America is rising.
That’s all the lib-left-loonies have remaining in their arsenal of “weapons”...their hate.
They have no other defense against the truth.
I am so sick and tired of the worn out, befuddled, irrational, spittle-laden, bulging-eyed, hypocritical ravings from the left, that I can hardly even make out what they’re saying anymore.
It’s clear to me that we’ve gotten nowhere with the 25% of the country that is incorrigibly left-wing, and I don’t see us ever getting these nutjobs to see our viewpoint on America.
They’re dyed-in-the-wool traitors to the Founding Principles of this country, and will continue to work tirelessly to tear down what our people have built over these last two centuries, no matter what the patriotic majority of Americans do. They are irredeemable.
Can’t we just declare war on them, and get it over with?
There is so much wrong, how do you start?
“Drowning out the hate hustlers:”
Please explain what these people said that is “hate” (”hatred” to you, grammar moron).
“That identity as one of the elect made the red glow in Southern white necks. They felt part of a civilization in which they were looked down upon until they put on their costumes, screamed loudly at mob gatherings and committed acts of violence.”
What is this? 1st, you’re targeting “southerners” (is that an act of hatred and bigotry?), then you’re talking about what? Veiled comments about KKK - and of course the southerners are all KKK. Bastard.
“While bigotry is as American as apple pie”
OOOh, I know; liberals hate America. Only they would say something that makes it seem only Americans are bigots or capable of it.
“...nobody today desires to be called a racist. And so they’ve reframed their Islamophobia as an issue of constitutional rights.”
Last time I checked, Islam wasn’t a race.
“This is a variation on the purportedly genteel Southern racists who claimed that the real issue during the civil rights movement was not ethnic exclusion, but the rights of states.”
There he goes again, picking on 1 of the only 2 groups that can ever be attacked (their platitudes of “diversity” & “tolerance” notwithstanding). Never mind the ignorance on states’ rights.
Certainly no one needs to worry about anyone stealing a liberal’s soul.
I’m thinking half a million people says Beck and Palin are tapped right into America’s soul. I really do think leftists are born brain-damaged.
If I was the publisher, I would be embarrassed to print that crap. It isn’t a column, it’s a screed.
