    I don't know. Does it take intelligence for you to repeatedly parrot him around the forum?

    If you knew anything at all about Beck, you might still hate him, but you would not be 100% against everthing about him.
    I've watched beck, read about beck, and i know his position on many issues. I don't hate him. He's an entertainer. I realize that. Many of his disciples don't.

    Shoot, as much as I can't stand Rachel Maddow, I'm not going to start or participate in a bunch of threads just to tell people what I liar I think she is. There would also be times when I'd have to admit she said something funny.
    I've never watched her show, so I have no idea.

    It's almost like a few on here have an agenda. An agenda similar to Media Matters and George Soros. Does your pay get docked if you ever say anything good about Beck?
    Does your mind immediately turn to socialist conspiracies anytime someone suggests that Beck is an idiot? IF so, you might a mindless clone.

    Evidence about beck has been presented on MANY threads, not least of which the one I linked on THIS THREAD. You apparently have ignored it all. Why should we continue to present evidence to someone who clearly has no intention of actually reading it?

    What??

    He has 15 million listeners to his radio show everyday.

    Ed Schultz averages around 600,000 viewers a night.

    Yeah, that's some real solid competition.

    Basically, yes. He plays on your emotions, Mellie, and tells you exactly what you want to hear. What would YOU call that?

    Apparently, or else people wouldn't buy it.

    I actually laugh really hard when I come across some name or face that most people have not heard of and he thinks they are evil or something entirely unique..when they are not. I tend to study intellectual history, so for me, it is glorious entertainment. Now, if someone wants to talk to me about something, like SDS or whichever, and come with exactly what Beck talked about, then that can get more complicated to debate with-because people don't know. They saw something on tv or in a movie, read a really bad book, and that's all they did, and ran with it.....that can get frustrating, but that's life.

    I can see the entertainment value of it.. but this is to deep for many appearently to grasp. So for me it comes off as not funny in that light.
