Actor Richard Belzer: Limbaugh, Beck 'Fascist Stooges'; Fox News 'Racist,' 'Misogynistic'
Newsbusters ^ | October 16, 2009 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 10/16/2009 6:05:48 AM PDT by Rufus2007

Ever since CNN HLN's "Joy Behar Show" has splashed on the scene, it has become little more than a show dedicated to bashing conservative, specifically former CNN HLN host, now Fox News host Glenn Beck.

The Oct. 15 broadcast of host Joy Behar's show was no different. First it tackled the issues of the day, like Arianna Huffington's take on whether or not Vice President Joe Biden should resign based on what President Barack Obama does in Afghanistan. Then Behar and her two guests, actor and left-wing activist Richard Belzer and New York Daily News Columnist Liz Benjamin discussed Rush Limbaugh's failed effort to buy a stake in the NFL's St. Louis Rams and the feud between Fox News and the White House.

Behar made suggestion Limbaugh represents himself as someone who is not "in the mainstream" because he argued on his Oct. 14 show the backlash was in part generated by liberal activists threatened by the notion Limbaugh could be considered to be in the mainstream. That notion was one which Belzer lashed out at and called Limbaugh and Fox News host Glenn Beck "fascist stooges" (emphasis added):

Belzer used to be somebody.

What is hilarious is all these lefties own the gov’t...but they still find it necessary to attack the right. :)

Shows ya what losers they are.

Anytime Belzer is mentioned in a post, all I can see is that segment of his comedy show when Hulk Hogan put him in a sleeper hold and then just let him drop. Ha Ha!

Definitely a name to keep in mind for future non-watching. One of my sons asked me if I was going to watch Zombieland and I told him no. It stars Woody Harrelson.

I wonder at what point do conservatives just stop buying products from the sponsers of shwos like this and stop watching the shows.

BOYCOTT THE LEFT, this includes the NFL.

These people are treading on dangerous grounds where there is going to be a great backlash for all the suffering 0bama and their Demonrats are causing the people of this country and it is ever more apparent that people can’t ignore who is actually in power and what their policies actually do when implemented. They can’t handle any voices of dissent and have nothing but lies and demonizations to offer up when it is being proven what fascists these hateful worthless arsehats are.

I saw Belzer at a bookstore in Oakland about 15 years ago. The funny thing was he made his assistant/flunky carry his bag of books while he walked ahead carrying nothing.

Indeed, it seems to have not dawned on the Leftists that the Republicans in D.C. are absolutely powerless to even filibuster. Anytime any staterunmedia maven says anything about “Republican opposition” being the reason for something not getting done, you can be assured that they are lies, lies and damned lies.

We need to hammer at 0bama’s base...

Why are we still in Iraq? The Democrats.

Why are we still in Afghanistan? The Democrats.

Why is Gitmo still open? The Democrats.

Why is “don't ask, don't tell” still policy? The Democrats.

etc, etc.

That notion was one which Belzer lashed out at and called Limbaugh and Fox News host Glenn Beck "fascist stooges"

When do Limbaugh and Beck ever advocate using the force of government to take over or control industries? Most of Limbaugh's career has been based on saying what the government shouldn't do or what it should stop doing and showing what idiots there are in government trying to control everything they survey. Hardly the core of fascism. Well, maybe if you use the modern definision of fascist as someone who disagrees with a liberal.

Now look at who actually does take over corporations and even entire industries to rule with an iron fist and exerpt control over those they do not own yet. Why, that would be the Democrats.

Great idea. The mere mention of Joy Behar requires some sort of antidote.

Behar is like a mean old aunt that no one really likes because she says rude things to everyone in the family and is a big know-it-all, loud mouth. She’s not classy and she’s not attractive and she’s not smart and she’s not funny. I can see why CNN hired her. She fits right in over there.

Since the use of the race card has exploded ever since Bammy became president, I`ve seen a lot of comments that say that the charge of being a racist has lost all it`s power. Looking at what happened to Limbagh, it seems the charge is as effective as ever. Maybe even more effective.

When has Joy Behar ever said anything intelligent? Or truthful? She’s another throwback living in the 60’s. I’ve had enough of liars lying. Go run your stupid cakehole, Behar, I will have nothing to do with insidious liars.

I hope these guys keep on spouting off. It hurts them more than they know. I wife voted for Obama. Yesterday, she says to me, “The problem with liberals is that they talk about rights, and free speech, and all that, but they only mean it for those people that agree with them. They try to crush anyone that disagrees with them.” She finally gets it. Being mean doesn’t win voters.

The leadership may not but they haven't known what's good for them for a long time.

A third party would kill the conservative movement at this moment in time. Sarah and others need to fix the GOP whether the pubbies want it or not.

About 20 tears ago this moron made the comment on Howard Stern's show, that in the history of mankind. Only white people have ever started wars. That no country of color ever attacked another country. Stern told him that he sounded stupid and didn't he ever here of Genghis Khan. Belzer shut up after that one. Stupid back then and even more stupid now.

Isn’t Belzer the guy who makes his money in US and lives abroad? I love Law & Order and SVU, but a lot of them are raging libs. Guess I’m going to have to give these two shows up.

Ah, yes. Angry Belz. Political Belz. Howard would have him on because he was a ridiculous caricature of a leftist know-it-all. Playing clips of Young Lady Chatterly, soft-core porn featuring his wife, usually shut him up, too.

I must be really sheltered, but I thought this guy was dead. He has a show? Huh, who knew. I remember Belzar on Howards show, Howard would normally pimp slap him when he went all politics. Imagine spending a lifetime pretending to be street smart and cool? Methinks in his youth he was probably a little wuss and everyones punching bag. That would explain a lot.

One can only laugh. Behar can compare her ratings to Beck and only wish she could know that kind of success. Of course, to accomplish that, she’d have to sound a lot more like Beck and Limbaugh...oh, what’s a bitter, homely wannabe to do??
