Todays Tea Party adherents are George Wallace legacies.
[Glenn] Beck is an ignorant, divisive, pathetic figure.
If those sentences sound to you like theyre straight out of the op-ed pages of the Washington Post and the New York Times, youd be right. But they can also be found in a college textbook assigned to students at a community college in Texas.
America Is Better Than Glenn Beck: Anti Beck Writings in College TextbookRead, Reason, Write: An Argument Text and Reader is a critical reading and analysis book assigned to freshmen at Lone Star College-University Park in Houston. Its 10th edition features a collection of readings excoriating Beck and the Tea Party, while providing only the barest counter point of view.

I cannot agree at all, although I believe Glenn has made some serious mistakes regarding George Zimmerman.
Overall, I believe he is a good man.
America is better than Glenn Beck?
You mean the baby-killing, sodomite, potty-mouthed, voter-fraud, mob rule, occu-tard, hate-filled, adulterous, murderous, lying, thieving, blaspheming, covetous, earth-worshiping, anti-Christ, anti-Jew, anti-Israel, Liberal America?
I’m wondering if THAT America is even as good as Josef Stalin.
YES the ones that leave their trash whereever they are for others to clean up ones
Hmmm..have you considered relocating in the near future?
This country is evidently not to your liking..or did you forget the sarcasm tag?
In 1964, Wallace campaigned as a Democratic candidate for president
So, the Tea Party are Democrats.
When people say that the real enemy of ‘Liberalism’ is ‘Reality’, they are not far wrong.
Liberalism is all about redefining ‘reality’ and, apparently, history.

Um, please read my post a little more carefully.
This country is very sharply divided. I was addressing the portion of the country that thinks it’s “better than Glenn Beck”.
Another part of the country is God-fearing, freedom-loving, monogamous, humble folk that know they’re sinners and need The Savior. You know, the “Glenn Beck” part of the country that the other side is “better than”.
Okey dokey...whatever you say.
No, no, wrong political Party, George Wallace was a Democrat.
Your comments show an inability to comprehend clearly worded sentences.
I have no comprehension issues.
I simply don’t agree with the post.
But thank you for inquiring.
George Walllace was a Democrat and has zero to do with today’s tea party.Who wrote this stupidity?
I’m no fan of Beck, I stopped listening to his ramblings, when he had the interview with Palin when he questioned her “soul to lead” or some such nonsense. He also jumped the shark on more than one ocassion.
Still, this attempt to innoculate the impressionable Utes with obvious left=wing proganda is reprehensible. I’ve found similar examples in my child’s elementary school, such as the history text book, that praised the “Progressives” for standing up to greedy businessmen in the early 1900’s.
...notable for its completely uncritical and non-analytical point of view regarding the standard bromides of the Left.
I’m in that picture and I wish I wasn’t. I have come to see this guy as a fake and a skunk who has no place in the conservative movement other than to serve as a reminder that we must carefully consider who we see as our leaders.
Is Glenn Beck a country now?
Does that help?
Beck has a serious flaw with his public personae when it comes to "use of force" issues.
He promotes a pacifist orientation with regard to public policy activism when it is more than obvious he is not a pacifist personally.
Whether this inconsitency is a defensive measure or simple hypocrisy is unclear.
Nevertheless, I agree with you: he's a pretty good guy.
