    Not at all, you were simply playing the game of defending your guy by showing what their guy did. Go on and play though.

    I just think people who so easily use the term Nazi or Hitler should be called on it and should read the history of the atrocities the Nazis committed.

    Calling people "sheeple" that blindly follow someone I don't think leads to one being characterized as intelligent does it now?

    People are prone to being awestruck. Just as many intelligent liberals think of Obama as the second coming, many of those who like and listen to Beck seem to take his every word as gospel.
    And what would be your empirical evidence to back up that absolute statement? Anecdotal quip is not evidence of anything other than maybe you seeing what you wish to see.

    And for the record, I am far from being a liberal. I am an independent thinker, and disillusioned by those who make strive and unrest a career, politicians and talking heads alike.
    Time and posting will tell in that regard. Many on boards like this seem to mask their true leanings by fraudulent leaning tags. But welcome, and I look forward to debating you.

    I absolutely agree that Nazi tag line has been an overused, and now made largely irrelevant term when describing anything pre disposed to the opposite side in debate. Godwining has become sport. However, I asked earlier that the context of Beck's statement be revealed, and got crickets. So the bent of this thread seems to be more aimed at childish, and snide name calling than it does calling out stupid statements made be pundits. I also said earlier that if the context was in tact concerning this, that they were stupid and callous. So maybe the history that should be read by some is a mere number of pages back in this very thread rather than attacking on what you THINK someone is saying.....

    We are entitled to our opinions, and we are entitled to interpret these opinions as we please.

    That aside, and not being one who pays too much attention to tv shows, why did Beck leave his program on Fox?
    His fans seemed to be under the impression he would be creating a different venue of sorts," aiming for greater things" (their words, not mine).

    No one is stopping you from posting your opinion, however expect to be called out when you offer your opinion as empirical fact. That you believe that a certain segment of the population are "sheeple" being led by Beck, and not free thinkers like yourself, displays a certain level of conceit that is often displayed today by Obamaphiles more often than not. So it just makes me wonder, that's all. In any case, you are entitled to your opinion, and I am entitled to say you are just plain wrong.

    That aside, and not being one who pays too much attention to tv shows, why did Beck leave his program on Fox?
    Well, I don't work for Fox News so I wouldn't be able to say with absolute certainty. But the indication is that he felt that the show on Fox had run its course, and he wanted to move on to do other things. Now, partisans will read into that something different, but be warned that is speculation, and most likely wrong, and designed to lead you.

    His fans seemed to be under the impression he would be creating a different venue of sorts," aiming for greater things" (their words, not mine).
    there is support for that.

    Rather than whining about the possibility that Beck was quoted out of context, (when such a vile callous statement fits perfectly well within his oeuvre) why not look it up yourself, then come back to trumpet your discovery! Maybe you know what you will find, and would rather snipe from the sidelines pretending there is a doubt.

    With his new project (GBTV) he answers to no one except his listener since he has no investors except himself and his listeners. He is free to say and do what he wishes on his web channel without the boss man telling him to tone it down or do something else. He also has many plans to go beyond just sitting in front of a microphone or video camera.

    I get made fun of all the time here and other places for this, but I believe Glenn Beck is absolutely genuine and believes everything he says. I believe he's passionate about helping people and wants this country to be great again. Does he say some things sometimes that make me facepalm? Of course. He's bound to when he's ad libbing 3 hours on his radio show every single day. But overall, I believe he's a good man with good intentions.

    Go ahead and mock me. I care not.

    I do not wish to mock, just giving my opinion as I see it. Its what Beck does.
    Should he succeed with his new venture, good for him. If not, its what free market is all about.
    Many people feel a calling of sorts, and if this is his, he must do what he feels is right.
    Time will tell how right he is.
    If I may give an example, Ron Paul and his supporters have been mocked for many years, just as we find out now that the dear man has been right all along, and many repeat what he has been saying for years.
    History will tell the tale, eventually.

    I think that the more apt question on subjects like this are why is it that these threads seem to predominately involve liberal posters bitching and moaning about what some right leaning pundit says? How come if liberals are supposedly so intellectually superior and enlightened and introspective that they never seem to rail like this on jack ass hacks from their own stable of belief that make incredibly stupid, and outrageous statements. Tubby Eddy Schultz comes to mind, so does Bill Mahr. Both are liberal hack flame throwers that seem to get a pass when they make idiot statements.

    No, it seems that when that happens you get the 'oh, he was taken out of context', or some other dismissal and NO accountability.

    The so called tolerance of liberals, and liberals that don't want to reveal themselves as such, probably out of a sense of guilt, and shame, are among the most intolerant when it comes to those that disagree with their own narrow mind.

    It's not so much of a issue of low intelligence or IQ, or little education. A lot of really intelligent people have joined cults. All of the people in Jim Jones' top circle were highly educated and very smart people. The problem with such people is lack of critical thinking skills especially when it comes to dogmatic beliefs, individuals, and situations. Beck also ties religion into his broadcasts and radio shows, it's just a combination of his personality, leadership skills, and message that sucks people in hard. Hardcore Beck fans are dedicated, travel to meet him and go to his ralies, and will pay top dollar to meet him. Beck can do no wrong, just ask some of the posters here. Even saying these kids were comparable to little Nazis was acceptable.
