Beck the idiot

http://news.yahoo.com/s/time/2010031...08599197098200

Summary, the paranoid delusional, or more likely insidiously despicable power and moneymonger, Beck gets out done, for once, at his own game.

To bad someone can't reveal something terrible about Beck. Like he once gropped a man, or black mailed someone or didn't pay his taxes (the last one to me is the most believable). I mean the man is beyond ridiculous in his paranoid ravings. It would almost be sad if I thought it wasn't all because he knows it gets him power and money. Cult of Beck. Almost as bad as those Westboro "folks".

Re: Beck the idiot

Beck is way more dangerous than Westboro. He has way more power.

Re: Beck the idiot

Power may be a little too extreme of a word for this instance. I know it's fun to find political boogey men, but if they didn't exist the idiots that follow them would still be idiots. People worry too much about bomb throwing commentators.

The good news is that his recent antics have cost him a lot of moderate viewership.

They would exist but they wouldn't be as organized or as frenzied or as dangerous.

Dangerous? Really?

Let's not fall into the Karl Rove trap and start branding certain segments as dangers. Not really accurate nor is it helpful.

Re: Beck the idiot

Are you saying you don't think the likes of Beck/Hannity/O'Reilly and their ilk had anything to do with inciting George Tiller's death?  I'm not saying Beck specifically caused it, but the kind of invective they spew on a regular basis can certainly have an effect on the weak-minded that follow them.

No, I don't think that at all. Sorry, conservative talk radio wasn't the religious demon in that murderer's head.

Then I guess we should just ban any and all political commentary.

It's strange what some people are scared of. I'm not scared of militant environmentalists, tea-partiers, tax protesters, etc. Why is it only the right wing commentators that scare you, too?

Opposing viewpoints, even those of questionable logic or sanity, shouldn't be demonized. As far as the "danger", my knees aren't really shaking because an abortion doctor was killed by a religious fundamentalist. How many people listen to Beck again? From the way you make it sound, we'd be hearing about Beck's army slaughtering people in droves every day.

Beck is an idiot, but saying he's "dangerous" or has "power" is not only misguided, it's giving him (being an egomaniac) exactly the reaction he wants.
