Skip to comments.Glenn Beck and stagecraft wizardry: Why his NRA talk trumped all (Lefty analysis)

Here's one thing you can say about Republicans: They sure like their props.
First there was Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention. Then there was Sarah Palin chugging down a Big Gulp at the Conservative Political Action Conference in March, and a couple months later, waving a tin of chewing tobacco at the National Rifle Associations annual convention in Houston this past weekend.
But in the prop-toting antics category, Glenn Beck may take the cake. He used not one but five props at his keynote address at the NRAs Stand and Fight convention Saturday, a rousing almost-two-hour talk during which he paced, mocked, pontificated, and of course, referred to props in classic Beck fashion.
He presented a series of firearms: the gun owned by serial killer Charles Manson before police confiscated it and Manson had nine victims slaughtered with knives, not guns; a 9/11 first responders handgun, which Mr. Beck called a small token of liberty; and an antique rifle used by an American the first time we fought against Muslim extremists the Barbary pirates.
A parade of arms? A firepower fashion show? A gun pageant? No, Beck was hammering home his point.....

The left clings to their lies and name calling.
Hus Husna? Never heard of it.

Excellent point. I call muzzie. Pakistani.
It’s in the Koran that “infidels” may not possess weapons of any kind.
Just call me “disobedient infidel”.
I had Husna Haq once but my doctor lanced it and it cleared up in a few days.....smelled bad and was nasty looking, though.
Usually they just give you an antibiotic and some expectorant for that.
Be glad a suppository isn’t needed.
Pakistan, playing both sides forever.
They have mastered the art.
yes, DiFi is a prop. They prop her up and trot her out whenever they want to do something they know will be unpopular with the public . Becuz her job is to be the untouchable grandmother of the senate.
Those who can’t, are whiny Leftists.
Devout Muslim Paki: “DIE, infidel!!!”
`Friendly’ Paki: “Would you like a Scotch?”
Read “Blackhawk Down.” Bastards left us hanging.
Trade sides faster than the Italians.
IIRC Tex Watson did use a pistol in one of the murders. Tossed it into some iceplant and it was found.
“This is the actual gun that Manson “family” member Charles “Tex” Watson used to kill Steve Parent and shoot Jay Sebring and Voytek Frykowski with.
“Before the Tate murders Charles Manson used this gun to shoot drug dealer Bernard Crowe (who did not die).
“After the Tate killings this weapon was tossed from the killers’ car, along with the knives, by Linda Kasabian. It was found by a young man named Steven Weiss on September 1st, 1969 on a hillside behind his home.
“The gun’s right grip is missing. While beating Voytek Frykowski over the head with it, Watson broke it and the pieces were found on Sharon Tate’s carpet the morning the bodies were discovered.”
