    In another thread a Liberal posted there is a voice recording of Glenn Beck telling people to shoot Progressives ( rather marxist progressives) in the head.

    While I doubt he actually literally means for anyone to shoot people, it is over the top. It is direct and irresponsible. Of course having condemned it, my question is will the left condemn their spokesmen for similar speech and direct irrefutable lies about right wing politicians and performers?

    I can think of several Liberal commentators and News programs that have directly attacked Palin and others with lies and misinformation and haven't quit as more facts come out that the Arizona shooter did not do the crime because of anything Palin said or believes.

    We have posters right on this board that continue to claim Palin was somehow responsible for the Arizona shootings. Others that claim her rhetoric and map were over the line ( ignoring the fact that in 2004 and 2009 the same imagery was used by Liberals) and claiming she has some blame coming to her.

    I already know the answer.

    That voice recording is a mishmash of bits and pieces; it's not legit. Allegedly the broadcast when he said that was 06/09/10, and I don't think that's what he said in any way or they wouldn't have had to make such a pathetic mishmash; they could have just used a clip.

    Various words and phrases stuck together and attached to a cartoon.
    And God knows if it's even all his voice.

    If he said it, one wonders why one can't get the clip of it.

    Who knows, I'd have to hear the real thing, and so far I can't find it.

    I don't listen much to Beck, I don't have a real feel for him so I have no idea and I don't speculate about crap like that.

    Cop out, just like what Article15 has done in the case of Palin.

    It is a simple question. ASSUME he said all of what we heard. IF he did would you condemn him?

    I don't do that, RGS. I don't work in "what if" scenarios, it's a waste of time. There are too many variables and I can't see that it does any good.

    I don't think Beck said it. Unless somebody proves that he did, I'm not going to make believe.

    That is nothing more then a cop out. You are as bad as Article15.
