    Again.. More who can't seem to read, or comprehend what it is that they are reading... LOL I'm surprised anyone with a brain would give you folks another look. You're only dangerous if there becomes too many of you, otherwise we would normally consider you harmless. Leave you alone in a corner to your thoughts kind of thing..

    I fail to see how this adds to the discussion in any way other than to insult those who dare to disagree with you.

    What's insulting is just how damn ridiculously large this thread got. You were all duped by some knee jerker, and now you're all trying to save face.. Well, some of you are, and some of you really are unable to realize how duped you were/are..

    Beck and his ilk often like to describe anything involving children as reminiscent of the Hitler Youth. In reality, the organization wasn't nearly as nefarious as the name would imply. It was designed to replace the Boy Scouts in Germany after the organization was banned. Much of the Hitler Youth programs were similar to those that the Boy Scouts did then and do now. However, the HY adding paramilitary training to the curriculum. It was not, in fact, a place where kids were sent to be brainwashed. Only those who were already strong on the Nazi agenda went there in the first place.

    If we're going to accuse an organization of doing something illicit, can we at least use the right metaphor?

    And yet you are still contributing to it. Nobody was duped. Glenn Beck made comments that some found outrageous and worthy of criticism. Just because you happen to agree with them doesn't mean that they are based in reality.

    No, some thought they were worthy of the misidentified kind fo criticism, and all of you jumped on board the Beck Bash Train..

    Like I said the normal Beck bashers are all high fiving themselves right now that they managed to get a Beck bash thread to live at least half a day in the grown up forums.

    Not really. Thus far what I've seen are people who have a problem with his comparison considering that his evidence for this comparison was baseless and completely unfounded. It's an incredibly weak tactic to identify criticism as an attack. Quite frankly, you really have no reason to talk considering that you have been utilizing said methods of attack about Liberals by implying that they are stupid.

    Like I said the normal Beck bashers are all high fiving themselves right now that they managed to get a Beck bash thread to live at least half a day in the grown up forums.

    You have a pretty vivid imagination.

    Hey, I don't agree with Beck, but he is entitled to his opinion, isn't he?
    All this to say that I am very surprised by some of the Libertarian's, as well as Liberal's, opinions.
    Why is it necessary to get so rowdy?
    Well, say something completely indefensible, have all manner of people defend it, and watch the **** fly.

    Fair enough.
    Just observing the criticism of his comments about Nazis while diving right into criticism of other youth camps.
    Very interesting.

    I am just puzzled what some understand as 'liberal' or 'libertarian".
    He has the right to say what he wants.
    We have the right to say he's a douchebag for it.
