New Orleans It’s amazing how we become inured to the ridiculous, even when it is abusive and preposterous. That’s my cut on Glenn Beck and his ranting, especially when he evokes me as anti-christ and revolutionary. Over the last couple of years, whenever I would mention the absurdity of it all, too often it would end up on Beck’s show on another whiteboard of whackiness, so I followed Huey Long’s old dictum that there is no real defense for a public attack and let it all run off of me like water off a duck’s back.

When I flew into San Francisco a couple of months I got there just as a crazy was in the news having been arrested in a fire fight with the cops as he was headed to do damage to the Tides Foundation, ACLU and others. He’s now conceded he was revved up by Beck and the Fox News fanatics. I didn’t enjoy seeing my name in those articles either, but what can you do, move under a rock? Nada, me! Not because I’m such a cowboy anymore (I swear!), but the work has to be done, and it’s the risk we’ve always lived with….

Well, my friend, Drummond Pike, Tides Founder and CEO, has had enough of this shit and though generally much, much more mellow than me, has reared back and lofted spit right in the eye of not Beck, the puppet, but Rupert Murdoch, the grand master of Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and more. Drummond wrote an excellent letter that’s getting good reviews asking Fox to stop the hate speech before someone else is hurt or killed, and going one better and demanding that Fox advertisers back away from this insanity before it’s too late.

I guess I should know this guy because he writes like he’s the center of the universe, but I never heard of him.

Nice try at calling Beck “anti-Christ”.

I smell sh**, er liberals, er...Obama.

Eat it, liberals. You’ll get yours in November and if you cheat us out then, the next step is the revolution.

A violent one.

You're a liar and a moron Rathke. I suspect you're even more of a coward than your boss as well.

I’ve been thinking about this all afternoon and I can’t decide if Glenn has done something that has stirred them up or he is going to do something that has them riled.

The 1960’s radicals had the chance they were waiting all these years for. They spent all that time culminating in an EPIC FAIL.

No one liked them then and nobody likes them now.

Wade, you are put out to pasture. You are no longer wanted or needed. Just get lost.

That’s what I get for being lazily coked out on cold medicine. Thank you.

What a weak joke with his “stop the hate speech” crap. Doesn’t he have prostitutes to advise or something more important to do than this?

No. I like some of his positions but find him annoying.
