    It would be nice if everyone could discuss facts, instead of name calling.
    Might be more productive, that's all.
    I agree with you completely on that.

    Hitler, Stalin, Nazis and Communists should be off the table (and I'm even caving a little on Socialist - because Western European-style Social Programs are, in my opinion, perfectly compatible with Democracy - while the others aren't. Sadly, people don't really know what is socialist and is not, so they misuse it quite frequently, but I'll still leave it on the table for now).

    Mass stereotyping doesn't do our politics any good at all. But calling Bush or Obama "Hitler" still isn't as callous as calling 70 dead kids "Hitler Youth". I find that one beyond the pale.

    The most appalling thing is to see people flocking to defend Beck or anybody else for making such statements. I usually shrug it off or think people are just being ignorant because they won't be the last, but defending that behavior and remarks is beyond offensive. If somebody made comments like that on DP they'd probably get an infraction at least, but outside of DP it makes people like Beck rich and famous. Appalling!

    Glen Beck said a remarkably stupid thing, and should apologize, but let's not pretend that he's the only ideological idiot out there.

    You want left wing atrocities? How about the 60,000,000 (give or take several million) Mao murdered and the 25,000,000 or so victims of Josef Stalin. When it comes to mass murder and the indifference to human rights and freedoms when it comes to ideology, nobody trumps the Left.

    The Left, in order to boost their own image, is always using the term "right wing" to describe any psychotic behavior out there, unless its a Muslim of course. It appears to work for a while, especially among the young, clueless and hopelessly indoctrinated, but most people catch on after a while.

    Why do you turn everything into being about the left? This thread is about Beck and his comments, not Mao.

    And its back to the playground for the right wing.... "na na na na na na - you're worse than we are".

    A fact is, that a huge number of people were very disappointed when GW won the election over Gore (and lets leave it at that, instead of going into detail).
    It all escalated from there.
    Folks went from being unnerved to blowing their top.
    I have never seen so much hatred thrown around, not only by the average American against the average American, but by politicians, celebrities, talking heads....
    Why we can't talk to each other as human beings, why must everything be us against them?
    We are them, we are all in the same boat, are we not?
    When its all said and done, and one or the other politician has long since left the office, we are still Americans, all of us.
    So called informative pundits, as well as our politicians, thrive on driving a wedge between us, and they not only do it so well, they profit from it.
    So lets not give these people too much power over us, lets not believe everything they say, and what's more, lets not defend them if they go over the deep end.

    So you're trying to take the glare of shame off Beck's idiotic behavior and trying to claim the Left did the same thing? Pathetic really.
    In addition, the Norwegian shooter, the Christian bombers of abortion clinics, many of those terrorists are indeed right wing. Get your facts right, and stop calling yourself an independent. What a hypocrite

    I was responding to a poster using the term. If you read what I was responding to you'd see that.
