    Glenn Beck blasted for Japan quake comments

    US celebrities and media have blasted right-wing radio host and television presenter Glenn Beck for calling the quake that rocked Japan last week a message from God.
    I have always called Glenn Beck a lunatic, but with this latest remark from him, I now promote Glenn Beck to Pat Robertson Land. Beck is now a certified nut.

    You know, I have a feeling that, if God were pissed at the world, the very first thing he would do would be to give Glenn Beck a stroke in the speech centers of his brain, and shut turn of the rivers of hateful diarrhea coming from his mouth forever.

    The earthquake didn't happen because God is pissed. It happened because something this the earth shifted. The Japanese people are not evil at all, let alone evil enough to deserve something like what is happening to them now.

    You know, I just thought of something. Two can play this game, so I will take Glenn Beck at his word. And if a quake should rock California and kill scores of people, I will simply say it's because Glenn Beck committed blasphemy, and perverted the word of God..... Wait. No, I can't do that. I am just not enough of a douche bag to say something that sick and perverted. Never mind.

    All this stuff is just more evidence that very few people are free of foot-in-mouth syndrome. When you give a dude a mic and let him talk all day something's bound to come up sooner or later.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No, if God were truly pissed at the world, He would make Glen Beck the only person on TV.

    These people who look at every natural catastrophe as a message from God, global warming, or whatever, are all nuts. George Carlin had it right.

    Possibly God did it to show the rest of the world how to act in a disaster. Kudos to the Japanese.

    The Japanese people are some cool cats. If this stuff happened in America people would probably be looting the crap out of everything.

    And if God wanted to destroy Japan or give them this quake, it would kind be punishing everybody else in the world too... If the world losses Japan as an economic powerhouse, then it's going to have negative implications for everybody else in the supply chain...

    Maybe Beck is just acting like this, because he already knows he is getting the ax at Fox... IDK, but this is definitely not going help him with advertisers and such.
