    I watched the Glenn Beck show last night because I wanted to hear what he would have to say about Rep. Cohen's Nazi shout out. (Of course Beck opened with a comment that he wasn't going to comment. Uh huh.) Instead he launched into a bizarre, disjointed 30-minute lecture on...I'm still not sure what.

    I THINK his point was that "progressives" have historically (in his mind) attempted to be the lone voice by using our-way-or-the-highway propaganda. (Of course Mr. Beck apparently still can't see that conservatives do precisely the same thing.)

    As I said, I think that's what his point was. But it was hard to tell from his radically silly analogies of stray cows--the rancher who owns the cows--who knows best? The cows or the rancher? Then quickly morphing that into an incomprehensible rant about university professors--elitists--trying to upstage mommie and daddie--then on to Hillary Clinton doing something--than back to his favorite demon president, Woodrow Wilson--capped off with barking dogs and freedom of speech.

    WTF? I had to stop listening. My brain was falling out. I suspect that's what
    has happened to the majority of his adoring supporters. To me, he sounded like the 50's comedian Professor Corey who in his 90's today can still do standup using his schtick of creating confusion while sounding dead serious.

    I rarely watch him, but as I said, I wanted to see what his comments would be on the Cohen comment, particularly because Beck has made a promise to keep things civil (or at least not promote violence by his INcivility).

    If being uncivil towards others incited violence, half this fucking board would be committing spree killings. Uncivil words do NOT incite or promote violence.... despite what the liberal media says.

    Then how do you explain the 600+ hate groups that have been formed in the past 10 years? Do you think they're just sitting around drinking beer and picking their noses?
