    It's almost like he is saying these kids are better dead, because they were future nazis...

    So......I really don't see the big deal. He thinks political camps for kids are creepy. I kinda think so too.
    Glenn Beck might not send his kids to camp, but if he puts them through his college, it's just as bad. He also probably lectures them and indoctrinates him like all wing nuts do, so there is really no difference. His kids would probably be better off going to a republican camp than getting an ear full of his paranoid rants and crying fits.

    I think he does stir the pot, absolutely. The ratings and attention are a result of him speaking his mind with no filter. That usually happens when people are incredibly blunt, honest and outspoken.
    Yes, OMG, he is a hero... *tear

But then something happened and his discourse became increasingly reminiscent of the likes of Alex Jones and I seriously started to question both his intelligence and his sanity. He had the advantage at one point and he completely blew it. I barely could stand to watch him for 5 minutes at a time in the end. Never listened to his radio show so I can't comment on that, but if the OP is any indication, he's still competing for most insane pundit of the year.
    I watched his show once, and it was before he was the Glenn Beck he is today. I actually remember him saying, "I am against the legalization of marijuana because I am a Libertarian, and if we legalize it, we'll regulate it." And I thought to myself, wtf, if this guy is being honest, then he wants to make everything illegal.

It's infinitely tiresome and a good example of how much the media is responsible for shaping people's perceptions of reality.
    When I was in Europe, they didn't think I was American and when I told them I was American, they acted shocked... I never understood why. I asked a guy from France once, and he said my name doesn't sound very American and I don't look/act American... lol. IDK. But I did get the same feeling that they think Americans are stupid, know little about world and geography, and they hated GWB before America actually did.

    You are apologizing and making excuses for him. You're basically explaining the logic behind his statements as if you know him inside and out. What he said was inappropriate and offensive and you're just sitting there making excuses. Honestly, Mellie, I thought you'd be a little more reasonable and honest than this, but it seems like you don't think Beck can do no wrong in this world. If anything, I think your constant defense of Beck is creepy.
