Quote# 80002

Just because you in Washington and you who are so out of touch with life in the media, just because you don't believe in anything doesn't mean nobody else does. We do. You know why you're confused by this show? It's because I believe in something. You don't.

Tea parties believe in small government. We believe in returning to the principles of our Founding Fathers. We respect them. We revere them. Shoot me in the head before I stop talking about the Founders. Shoot me in the head if you try to change our government.

I will stand against you and so will millions of others. We believe in something. You in the media and most in Washington don't. The radicals that you and Washington have co-opted and brought in wearing sheep's clothing — change the pose. You will get the ends.

You've been using them? They believe in communism. They believe and have called for a revolution. You're going to have to shoot them in the head. But warning, they may shoot you.

They are dangerous because they believe. Karl Marx is their George Washington. You will never change their mind. And if they feel you have lied to them — they're revolutionaries. Nancy Pelosi, those are the people you should be worried about.

If you believe in small government, why do you want to give it power over the religious lives of the people?
And what's all this "shoot them in the head" shit? Are they zombies? Did they eat your fucking brain?
Any cop will tell you that you're supposed to aim for the center of mass. It's hard to shoot someone in the head. You'll miss most of the time.
And please update your boogeyman. Karl Marx is about as scary these days as Kaiser Wilhelm.

Damn... I don't like Pelosi either, but give me a break!

I say small government in people's social lives. I don't like big government control of the business world, either. But if it helps fix the economy, then the Obama administration has my support!

I for one welcome our new leader.

If Glenn Beck was shot in the head, we'd hear the sucking sound of ruptured vacuum.

He's asking you to do it, someone please shoot him in the head. And two in the chest to be sure.

The problem with the government is that there are no radicals, communists, socialists, or Marxists in there (except Bernie Sanders, but the machine is never going to allow the people to vote in enough radicals to do anything besides giving people a false sense of having their views heard and respected).

And yet any failures under Capitalism Lite Obama are framed by the media as because the government is too far left when in fact the failures are because Obama accepts and promotes cobbled up half-baked reforms and then goes even further by basically handing the Republicans and Big Business everything they want.

It's a good thing Beck's audience is knuckle-dragging moronic and never checks any of the things he says. It keeps the man in pizza and beer (or whatever morons, I mean Mormons drink with pizza).
Boogah-boogah, commies! (I mean, really?!)

Felis >:3

Funny how he calls those who want to change the Government communists, yet the communists are in favour of a one-party rule like this faggot.

Fucking religion. Just, fuck it. It makes people hypocrites.

The fuck is this man not being investigated for incitement to violence? Yes, I know, Second Amendment and all that crap, but it's illegal under U.S. law to incite violence, and this could be seen as that in the eyes of the law.

He probably wouldn't intend for that to happen, so he shouldn't be punished massively for it in my opinion.

However, he should be more aware of the possible effects of what he says, the fucking retard, so he should at least get a severe bollocking and a caution from the police.

Beck, you need to think more about what you say. Freedom of speech isn't always black and white.

Part 1

Just because you in Washington and you who are so out of touch with life in the media, just because you don't believe in anything doesn't mean nobody else does.
Yes, not believing in God means you believe in nothing. In related news, I had my arm amputated because I scratched my finger. I mean there's no real difference between the two, right?

We do. You know why you're confused by this show? It's because I believe in something. You don't.
You know what I believe in? I believe in the strength of the human spirit. I believe that we are capable of far more than we give ourselves credit for. I believe that while the world may seem like it's going to shit, the sum total of humanity is ultimately good. You? You believe that it is but for the fear of your God that we are anything but vile and evil, and that we are weak and inferior creatures that can only be anything if we're grovelling like beaten slaves. The fact that you believe that is superior in any way is what confuses me.

Tea parties believe in small government.
Until you feel someone is doing something you don't like, and then it's legislate, legislate, legislate. Newsflash, you can't demand a small government, and demand that the government micromanage everyone's lives.

We believe in returning to the principles of our Founding Fathers.
Oh, you mean like the freedom to worship as you see fit?

Yeah, didn't think so.

We respect them. We revere them. Shoot me in the head before I stop talking about the Founders. Shoot me in the head if you try to change our government.
Yeah, it must be remade in YOUR image, or else it's a ruthless tyranny, right?

Part 2

I will stand against you and so will millions of others. We believe in something.
Yes, that your way is infallibly right, and we must bow to it. You guys make that very clear.

You in the media and most in Washington don't. The radicals that you and Washington have co-opted and brought in wearing sheep's clothing — change the pose. You will get the ends.
So, I'm right. It's not that you don't want the government to change, it's that you don't want us to have anything to do with it, leaving all power to you guys, to run, unfettered, over whoever you want.

You've been using them? They believe in communism. They believe and have called for a revolution. You're going to have to shoot them in the head. But warning, they may shoot you.
Why Mr. beck, are you calling for violence against elected officials...? After whathappened to Congresswoman Giffords, you might wanna be quiet about stuff like that.

They are dangerous because they believe.
I thought you said we didn't believe. Make up your mind.

Karl Marx is their George Washington. You will never change their mind. And if they feel you have lied to them — they're revolutionaries. Nancy Pelosi, those are the people you should be worried about.
Personally, with as much inflammitory language as you have been using, you are the one I fear. You call for violence, without a care as to who may get hurt, because hey! You never IMPLICITLY said for anyone to go out and kill elected official so-and-so, and if one of your listeners was so misguided as to interpret your ranting as such, well...you can't be held responsible, right? Sickening.

Radicals would never wear sheep's clothing. Too conspicuous.

Another fine gem out of mister Beck. Screaming and shouting does not make you right. And you've very conveniently forgotten "The New Colossus", graven on a plaque commemorating the Statue of Liberty. An icon and voice for those arriving at Ellis island. Here's a choice excerpt...

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

America was not meant to be an endless cycle of the rich fleecing the poor. It was to be a refuge for every man, woman and child fleeing the persecution or hardships in Europe or the world as a whole. A refuge for anyone, rich or poor, to live a fair and prosperous life.

Don't you fucking dare deny the Lady her meaning and glory.

WOW. Just wow. I hope no one takes this shit seriously and does go out and shoot anyone in the head. What the fuck

"Just because you in Washington and you who are so out of touch with life in the media, just because you don't believe in anything doesn't mean nobody else does. We do. You know why you're confused by this show? It's because I believe in something. You don't. "
What do you believe, some ridiculous Communist boogeyman? Also, they're probably confused because all you do is rant about your ridiculous paranoid fantasies, like this.
"Tea parties believe in small government."
Bullshit. You want more control of peoples' personal decisions like abortion.
"We believe in returning to the principles of our Founding Fathers. We respect them. We revere them."
If you listen closely, you can hear the founding fathers rolling in their graves.

Also, you're telling people to shoot other people in the head?! Do you not what could happen if some nutjob with nothing to lose followed you and carried this out? Of course you don't, you'd probably enjoy it. Honestly Glenn, you're either a troll or the biggest nut on television

Has anyone ever X-Rayed Beck's head to see if there was anything it it?

3/15/2011 6:36:31 PM

Doubting Thomas

I seem to recall after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and all those other people in Tucson were shot, Fox News was running around claiming that it wasn't right-wing hate speech that caused it. Now here you have Glenn Beck talking about shooting people in the head.

Oh and the tea party is nothing more than a bunch of crazy, right-wing racists who want a Christian theocracy and are only protesting because the current president is black.

What is it with this guy and encouraging people to shoot everyone, himself included? Just go hunting with Cheney and get that all out of your system.
