Joe Scarborough on Glenn Beck: He's terrible for the conservative movement | Crooks and Liars
MSNBC doesn't have any original material, so they have to comment on what other networks are doing. At least I got to hear some of what Glenn Beck has to say. The only time I ever learn anything about Glenn Beck or Sean Hannity or Sarah Palin is when people post it here.
I find developing my own opinions, based on facts, so much more relevant than getting them from others. Just a little tip I thought I'd share.
Better to comment on what other networks are doing that just openly making crap up like Fox does.
Oh goody fucking gumdrops.. Another Beck Bash. Kool innit?
Another Soros Media Matters find? What does it mean when left wingers take the time to remind conservatives that "Glen Beck is terrible for the conservative movement"? The radical left wing has had a change of heart and suddenly care about the conservative movement? The radical left is warning the right wing out of the goodness of their little hearts? Yeah right. The dirty tricksters on the left are pathetic.
I too from my own opinions; Glen Beck and George W. Bush are prime examples of dry drunks.
Joe Scarborough is a conservative you nitwit.
That was such a perfect example of a total meltdown by Glenn Beck. Republicans, conservatives, etc., who are brave enough to say so are absolutely correct about that maniac being a huge black mark against their efforts. At some point long after he crashes and burns, I suspect someone will do an updated version of "Network" with the Howard Beale character being Glenn Beck.
The irony is that the final speech by Howard Beale referred to happenings in the early 70's, which ultimately the country survived, of course. The similarities are amazing.
"I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be! We know things are bad - worse than bad, They're crazy! It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone!' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone! I want you to get MAD! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad! You've got to say, "I'm a human being, goddammit! My life has value!" So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now, and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell: "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Howard Beale
