Beckel to Geller: 'You’re a Woman, You Better Be Careful'
NewsBusters. ^ | 09/28/2010 | Rusty Weiss

Posted on 09/28/2010 8:18:01 AM PDT by george76

During a discussion of some already controversial statements made by Democratic strategist, Bob Beckel, a very heated exchange developed involving Beckel and Atlas Shrugs publisher, Pamela Geller.

The controversy started when Bolling played a clip of Beckel's previous appearance on the show in which he stated:

"Look, at some point, I know it's sensitive here in New York and probably New Jersey, but we have to get over 9/11."

The short list of ‘non-existent terrorists' since 9/11 that Mr. Beckel must be referring to, include the Madrid train bombers, Russian train bombers, Shoe Bomber, the Lackawanna Six, Fort Hood assassin, the Virginia ‘Jihad' Network, Christmas Day bomber, Fort Dix plotters, and the Times Square bomber.

Beckel might have been feeling the stress of trying to defend such a blatantly insensitive statement, by providing a blatantly inaccurate defense, as he experienced a misogynistic meltdown directed at Geller in the middle of the segment in which he said:

"You're a woman, you better be careful about saying who I carry water for."

Beckel's appearances on FNC have been infuriating at times, but mostly for ideological reasons. He is, after all, a liberal. But he clearly crossed a line tonight with his uncharacteristically aggressive attacks on Geller. Even Arlen Specter knows that you don't start any argumentative statement with the words ‘you're a woman.'

Beckel Pee's on Hannity's leg and tells him its raining..
While pointing to some other subject.. and gets away with it.

Hannity needs to be counseled on DEBATING gambits...
He is usually outclassed even with all the ammunition he has.. by lightweights like Beckel..

Hannity calls Beckel his friend.

Losers and has-beens, thanks Sean but no thanks!

Sean’s so past the times it’s sad. He thinks Newt is a cutting edge thinker. I think he’s a big government spender stinker.

Leftie creeps like Beckel have never respected women. He learned all about women as a student activist in the 60s. Nothing pretty or wholesome about activist female-male relationships then..he is like a pig stuck in the mud of his past.

Bechtel likes his booze. No telling how much he may have had before he opens his mouth. Sometimes I don’t think he believes half of what he says, but he is paid to take the liberal side.

Yeah, getting tired of Hannity and his defense of Beckel and his ilk. "He's a really good guy". Yeah and hitler loved puppies.

As for his debating skills, he was outclassed by michael moore, of all people, at the Republican convention. Since then I haven't expected much from him.

Basically his radio show is a rehash of Rush, who just preceded him.

Is he so stupid as to think the communists he also spiels for are going to let the arabs he is spieling for really get far? Or the other way around.(Bury a pig,,save America,,throw this one in too if you want.)

The minute Beckel's world-weary, morose mug appeared on the panel last night, I pulled the plug.

Sean has such an affinity for losers like Beckel, Sharpton, McCain, Rove.

I've come to the point that now I only watch certain interesting guests on O'Reilly, Sean and Greta. The three of them collectively are starting to give me worms, all three for different reasons, actually.

Beckel's a moron. He's the guy who paid a hooker with a personal check.

He did go on record back in the winter of '08 on FNC warning the Dems that they were about to nominate a man who hadn't been properly vetted. Would love to have that tape.

Beckel and Hannity are big buddies. I don’t know how Sean can be a friend to someone who is not only of a low enough character to consort with prostitutes but who is stupid enough to pay for their ‘services’ with a bad check!

Hannity’s show is generally unwatchable IMHO but it’s doubly so when he has beckel on. Disgusting.

All I need to know about Beckel I learned after the 2000 election when he was going to “investigate” the Republican electors to try to convince them to change their votes in the Electoral College.

I’m going to defend Morris because I’ve met him personally. I think most would be surprised at how unassuming he is in person. Also, he is one of the most chivalrous men I’ve met. It’s not everyday you meet a man with such excellent manners. He really is a gentleman. Probably the result of being away from Clinton for so long.

This creep is a "you better not make the terrorists mad or you'll only get more terrorism" slinking liberal coward. So he decides to threaten with a line like "You're a woman, you better be careful about saying who I carry water for." because of how Muslims treat women.

He just summed himself up in one sentence.

Beckel has some explaining to do. I’ve always found the Marxist water carrier tedious and annoying.

Have you ever seen Beckel lose it?

What a hot-head, I bet he's slapped a few women around.

My money would be on Pamela to kick his ass.

These hacks like Beckel have been staged time and again by Hannity and the like, just to inflame the audience. I take their appearance as merely a weakness on the part of the host. Same with this Columbia coon that O’Reilly parades across about every three weeks to pee some new radical notion. When this trash appears, I just dial up Sponge Bob.

He always looks like he is about to EXPLODE. He leans on the desk and is slovenly. He’s a jerk. Plain and simple and there again is hannity calling him his FRIEND. That surely get old.

Of all the radio guys, I like Hannity the least. He constantly plugs his concerts or whatever, and he is soft of liberal scum like McCain and others.

The true king of radio is Rush. He’s been on fire lately. Without Rush, none of the others would exist. Levin is great. Local guys on KVI in Seattle are good. But there is no one better than Rush.

I agree.

If you get a chance listen to Jim Quinn out of Pittsburgh. You can listen on the internet at WPGB site. 6 am-10 am.

I actually think that he is the best of the talker with the most up to date and important info.

They have threads here on FR, The Quinn and Rose Show.

I thought he’s supposed to be sober now; I was just assuming he destroyed too many neurons to have any inhibitions left in what he says, kinda like having a lobotomy.

Is it the old...you're a woman so you SHOULD be a Democrat???

Nope. It's just another card in the progressive's deck. You're just used to seeing the racist card. This is the sexist card.

Basically, it sounds like he's threatening her because he's a he and she's not.

I would have had to have asked him if it was a threat, because if it was, he could just get bent!

I know this will rile some folks...that’s okay. I’m not a fan of Beckel’s, however he is Hannity’s friend for a reason.

He’s not a bad guy...he just plays one on teevee.
