    Ultimately, who cares? His hardcore viewers are going to continue watching him and agreeing with everything he says. Why let yourself fall into the trap of giving a rat's ass about it? If you really want him to fail, stop being outraged by him.

    Dedicating a page to his "lies" only gives him legitimacy.

    That is a fair point, but what I am trying to do is to get people to be rational and realize that he is insane.

    Even there you are giving him a lot of credit. Does it occur to you that his whole madman thing could be an act? I don't think Ann Coulter is insane either. They are **** stirrers. I think he portrays an insane person because it helps to add to his viewership and the people who are outraged by him. Did you see him when he was on CNN Headline News? His whole thing was completely toned down and nobody gave a **** about the guy. Now that he's on the ratings whore that is Fox News, he has free reign to act as nuts as he wants.

    That's what liberal hate the most. They want religious people to shut the **** up.

    It's not really religious people. I don't see liberals complaining about hardcore Buddhists. It's more specifically the few Christians who feel like they should try to impose their beliefs on others by trying to get said views legislated. I have absolutely no problem with Christians in general. To each their own.

    NO, I want those who try and force their religion on others and say those with other beliefs are wrong to shut the **** up

    It's difficult to understand a non-Beck listener talking about Beck. "Bigoted lies?" Explain.
