    I have.

    1. No, they aren't the same people. Baldwin's Black Robes are only Christians (as far as I can tell looking through the lists of pastors and their congregations). Beck introduced 240 Christians, Jews and Muslims as the Black Robes.

    2. Same goals? Well, it appears that Baldwin and Beck's goals are the same in that the clergy will do as the original Black Robes did and preach about individual freedom, responsibility and charity.

    So....what is it you're trying to prove, Catz?

    Resurrecting the Black Regiment

    Chuck Baldwin has a rich history with American militia groups and just last week was urging armed revolution against the federal government on his website...

    Chuck Baldwin Live | Fighting for Constitutional Government in America

    And, Chuck is headed out west, to MOntana, to join up with like-minded "Patriots."

    What message do you think that Glenn Beck is sending by co-opting this existing entity/idea?
    forgive me, i'm not seeing the call to armed violence in this.


    but okay, let's take a look at this logic and see where it leads. Beck works with a pastor whom (you tell us) calls for revolution in this country; with potential hints of armed revolution. ergo, Beck and this pastor share similar ideals and plans.

    a filmmaker makes a hugely popular and prosperous film accusing a sitting president of being complicit in the 9/11 attacks, and the Democratic Parties' response to that is to sit him next to Jimmy Carter at the 2004 National Convention;

    so the democratic party, obviously, is a bunch of 9/11 truthers?

    Nope, don't care about his beliefs. It's his methods that are objectionable. He is a hypocrite of the first order. He uses the methods of Goebbels while claiming that everyone who is opposed to him is a Nazi. He is an unprincipled, self-promoting, fraud.

    Quotes please where he claims all that oppose him are nazis.
    How is he a hypocrite?
    Unprincipled? how so? Fraud? How so?
    The rest is just your opinion.

    Everyone opposed to him is a Nazi? Odd. I've never heard him say that.

    And if he's a fraud, then he doesn't believe anything he's saying, so......why are you upset?

    While I doubt that he's ever claimed that everyone who opposes him is a Nazi, he does often compare certain opponents to Nazis.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Indeed. It's not at all uncommon for him to dress as a Nazi to mock Obama, for instance. Didn't he wear a hitler youth costume several times?
