    Of course it's controversial, Patrick. When you have 3 hours of ad lib on a radio show and you aren't afraid to say whatever you're thinking at the moment, you're going to say controversial things. Again, this isn't a big deal. He wasn't saying the kids were learning how to murder millions of Jews.....just that political camps for kids are creepy. Like Hitler Youth was creepy.

    Some of you are reading too much into it simply because you despise Glenn Beck. As usual.

    I'm merely pointing out that the reason he gets ratings is because of the controversial things he says, not the fact that he speaks honestly and bluntly.

    I can't speak for others here, but I honestly don't hate Glenn Beck. I don't know the guy personally. I see him for what he is. In order to hate Glenn Beck, he would have to matter to me in some way, and he simply doesn't. I find it's pointless to fall into the trap of hating someone who is trying to get you to have a reaction about them one way or another.

    No we are not.

    1. Norway was invaded and occupied by Nazi Germany in WW2.
    2. Many Norwegians died during the invasion and during the occupation.
    3. Many Norwegians were sent to death camps.
    4. Norway had their "Quislings" aka collaborators who's leader was Vidkun Quisling, a right wing politician.
    5. Norway's Quislings targeted especially the left during the occupation..

    so yes, Beck's words are extremely hurtful and highly inappropriate on top of being factually wrong and hypocritical.

    OMFG- Beck said something controversial. Guess what? I bet he would love the fact that we're talking about it. F*cking attention whore. He'll never retract or express sorrow over anything he's said previously, so any conversation about it is pretty much useless. He'll just keep right on going. The only power we have is to not listen to him, and ignore everything he's said. Most guys like him, deprived of any audience, will lose steam and eventually just give up.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's pretty black and white when a prominent media figure is overshadowing the deaths of innocents with partisan hackery. He's trying to get people to think about, "Well why were the children are a political camp in the first place?!" (i.e. it's the fault of the parents for putting them in a dangerous situation.)

    How about... why did a right-wing, white Christian nutjob shoot up a bunch of children because he was angry at the government? If a Muslim had done this, Beck would going on about the "religion of hate". But no, now because it's a right winger that is just a tad more far right than Beck, we don't want to talk about that.

    Don't even bother pretending Mellie. You're a relentless apologist for this guy. It shows in every single thread about him you post to. Keep drinking your koolaid.

    You'd think he'd have had the decency to wait until their bodies were cold before starting to smear their memory.

    Decency and Glenn Beck are not normally associated together...

    Beck is only a topic due to the dispicible people who continually support him by watching. As long as these people continue to wash their own brains with all that Beck detergent, he'd be a fool not to sell it to them. It is America, after all. If somebody will buy your snake-oil, sell it to them.

    Like I said, he's crazy like a FOX. He plays these gullible, disgruntled, America hater's like a fiddle.
