President Obama's "green jobs czar" is co-founder of a black activist organization that has led a campaign prompting major advertisers to withdraw from Glenn Beck's top-rated Fox News Channel program.
In recent weeks, Beck has done several critical segments about Van Jones, who was appointed as the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
Now Colors of Change, an activist organization seeking to "strengthen Black America's political voice" has led a furious campaign against Beck culminating in major companies such as Geico and Lawyers.com pulling their spots from the Fox News star's daily show. The group also says it has garnered about 75,000 signatories for an online petition against Beck to be sent to advertisers.
Dont recall that there is such a dictionary of banned words for the Left. Which is part of Becks point as well.
I agree. The rules have changed. The civil rights battle was fought and appropriately won. "Racist" should have been a word that was retired sometime in the 80's or 90's but blacks would never let go of it, even when zero was elected president for cripes sake.
But they do it at their own peril. See Rules for Radicals: "Rule 7: A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues." And people may become immune to words and labels when used too often. Honestly, when I was called a racist during the campaign for the first time in my life, it stung. Now it has no impact since I know what is in my heart. You can play a card so many times until everyone knows your game.
Now see Rule 5 from Rules for Radicals: "Ridicule is mans most potent weapon. Its hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage." Yes I am suggesting that we go there ...for crying out loud, a black man is in the WH, racism (at least white on black) is done. Stick a fork in it. I am not great with the one liners so I won't try. But there is a whole lot of material here for comics. There more people who see the absurdity of the suggestion that only white people can be racist the better; it neuters the other side in a big way.
Being nicer to these Nazis just encourages them to crap all over us and the Constitution. Crap on them at every turn. The time to be nice is AFTER the democrat party is outlawed, as it should have been in 1865.
The networks should ignore the 75,000 angry Commies.
Beck should plow this guy a new one by bringing his past/present up every day on the air.
ah the left closing free speech again
will the ACLU/SPLC now stop this lunacy?
Course now even the SPLC are trying to get rid of Dobbs.
the left are really afraid of free speech and hate it if someone tells the truth about their agenda.
well you lefty NAZIS your agenda is being found out by the average person.
Keep it up lefty sheep, keep it up.
you are your own worst enemy and you’re so blind and dumb that you can’t even see it.
well I called Geico and let them know I do not need them anymore.
two can play this game so we’ll boycott them and see who wins in the end
Well Let’s just reverese the boycott. Any product pulling their ads from Beck we will boycott.
I do not recall Back ever saying bozo is a racist so could you show me or give me any transcript?
However saying that I do agree obama is a racist,
typical white people
greedy white folk
racist church for 20 years
surely you don’t think bozo has no racist thoughts to whites?
Even if Beck had said that then he would have been correct.
look at who bozo surrounds himself and who he appoints
uhhhhh, Saul Alinsky, obozo's communist mentor, as I stated in the post. Only a newbie (7-26-09) liberal troll would ask "Saul who?"
USAA was founded by former military officers. It is a NON-PROFIT Insurance Company. They have other services, such as banking, member buying servies, etc. It is the best insurance company I have ever had in my entire life. Their rates are very competetive, and they also ofer many wonderful services for their Members. Hey, I don't get any kick backs for recommending USAA either! I just love them! Check them out:Click Here for USAA
Welcome to FR.
“Welcome to FR.”
Guess he figures free speech is not good for the environment he wants to enforce upon us.
Bring a knife to a knife fight, bring a gun to a gun fight, bring a tank to tank, eye for a eye and we just may save our country from the Obozo/Marx regimes.
Bring a gun to a knife fight, bring a bazooka to a gun fight, and if they put one of yours in the hospital, put theirs in the morgue. TAKE NO PRISONERS
thanks for the heads up on the link.
Fox’s Glenn Beck: President Obama Is a Racist
Together we stand, divided we fall.
As far as those on the other side, LET THEM EAT CAKE.
“if they put one of yours in the hospital, put theirs in the morgue.” This was the best line by Sean Connery in The Untouchables. Even when Connery plays a dragon, he’s great.
THAT I’ll go along with.
