Is It Just Me?

Or when america elects it’s first black president and the rallying cry is immediately “give us our country back”, culminating in a whiter than white crowd of some 70-80,000 white people hijacking the anniversary of martin luther king’s “I have a dream” speech in an effort to “restore honor” to america does all of this seem really fucking racist?

I mean hitler wrapped racism in the german flag the way we’re wrapping it in american patriotism.

    Those people need to pick up a book and read news that isn’t FOX. Jeez. Glen Beck ≠ Martin Luther King Jr.

  2. Glenn Beck has caused more facepalming than houseflies.

  3. leaflesstree says:

    It just astonishes me that he and people like him are taken seriously. 

  4. nice summary of the situation as it actually exists. 

  5. @leaflesstree – “he and people like him” spent nearly three decades quietly buying up major media outlets and pwning the FCC, allthewhile decrying the “liberal media”. i’m worried that beck and people like him are now influential enough to force the natural swing of the political pendulum. as in, over the top.

    I did a bit of research on the niece speaking.  She has condemned MLK’s wife because she supports gay marriage and is pro-choice.  (And has stated that MLK was pro-choice and would have supported gay marriage since it is a civil right.)  She also came out and said that the widow didn’t matter because she didn’t have MLK’s blood and since she (the niece) did, she understood MLK better.  What a TOOL.

  7. Casbahmaniac says:

    Yeah, he claims the date was a coincidence, but he actually planned this rally near the end of 2009 so the date he chose was significant. He just knows that they don’t ever revisit the tapes at Fox News to show he said it.

  8. It has absolutely nothing to do with his race.  He’s a liberal socialist PERIOD.  Spending money right and left!  Drives me nuts. 

  9. Nobody cares what color Obama is or what religion he is.  We care about his policies which are killing America.Liberals, devoid of intellect, morality and decency always reduce the opposition to racists, bigots and homophobes.

    Have I mentioned yet today how much I republicans, teabaggers, flying monkeys, wingnuts, conservatives..or what ever you want to call these stupid bastards??

  11. m_kabs says:

    Honestly, the location of his “restoring honour” speech sickened me. When I read about in the paper this morning, I was becoming physically nauseous.

  12. Hinase says:

    What happened exactly? I’m out of the loop since I don’t have cable nor read news online. I know I missed something lol It involves Glenn Beck, MLK and some speech. Not sure. Enlightenment, please? 

  13. I am so pissed off at ignorant people right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WHEN DID WE MOVE BACK TO THE 1940s??????

    “I mean hitler wrapped racism in the german flag the way we’re wrapping it in american patriotism.” That’s an interesting way of looking at it.

  15. misuriver says:

    @LoBornlytesThoughtPalace –  So says the sites craziest conservative.

  16. misuriver says:

    @LifeNeedsProtection –  Right, and George Bush spent absolutely nothing. Hypocrisy rules.

  17. The similarities between what the Tea Party/Conservative Evangelicals and the early practices of the Nazis are somewhat alarming.

  18. Yes, that was really racist, tasteless and devoid of class, but there’s really not much more we can expect from the likes of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin. @Kristenmomof3 – The 40s? I wasn’t aware that we had even progressed that far! Republicans: Still partying like it’s 1399.

  19. jmallory says:

    I don’t think it’s racist at all… I don’t think this has anything to do with President Obama being black… But I do think this was an inconsiderate on Beck’s part. I can’t believe he is even trying to equate himself to MLK Jr.Next up, he’ll be comparing himself to Jesus Christ, himself… Can’t wait for that day… we’ll see how many of his guppies follow him then…

  20. @helvetebrann – Thanks for the info on the niece. Nice.

  21. phillyista says:

    if it was socially acceptable…I wonder would Glenn wear the White Cloak?  Well actually I guess since he is able to spew the hate without having to hide his identity there would be no need for it.  He is just pathetic and to be honest I really feel sorry for him and all of his little followers. To be filled with such animosity and to display such hatred for fellow human beings today in 2010 is just really sad.

  22. ElusiveSoul says:

    Couldn’t have said it better.

  23. mommachatter says:

    I’m glad no one here knows exactly where I am but I am going to jump in here and say that I am getting tired of my money getting spent carelessly on things I don’t want it to be spent on.  At least I would like to be asked.  What about a thank you for all the money spent on the luxury offices and vacations for the executives of the companies that were bailed out.  I am not going to get into where and when the rally was sort of like I said in one of my blogs….Against Rudeness there is no law.  All I can say is that some people, myself included, don’t want to leave my kids and grandkids in debt up to their ying yang before they even get a chance to work.  Again, I will not vote for or against the time and place…but if it wakes people up as to what is going on more power to it.   As for the blacks….Ha!  My son’s best friend and best man was black.  I don’t understand racial predijudice, nerver have and don’t think i will start now at my age. ~ mom   Oh did you notice Martin Luther Kings neice was there?    Thanks for having an opinion even if it is not the same as mine….it is nice to know someone out there is thinking about something other than what all the dog did today :?)

  24. phantomFive says:

    If you think the tea party is all racism, you are utterly not seeing the situation clearly, and will have trouble seeing the future until it happens. Sorry.

  25. @LifeNeedsProtection – This whole “Obama is a socialist” claptrap that right wing ignoramuses spew is so absurd it would be hilarious if the consequences weren’t so dire.  Obama is a freaking neocon.  He is nowhere close to being a socialist.  It would be better if he were. We need some socialism for the working classes around this place.  What we have is socialism for the rich.  Did you enjoy seeing that trillion dollars get trucked over to the big banks?

  26. I despise Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, but I am trying to keep an open mind about this.  I agree with mommachatter above.   I also wanted to say that many blacks are so blinded by loyalty to Obama that dissent is just not an option.  I would not go so far to say that it was a racist move by Beck, just classless.

  27. amateurprose says:

    Good post. Off topic, I have to say your play list is stellar.

  28. Even worse, they’re attempting to wrap it in the Constitution.

  29. illusory correlationPresident Obama is a demon king.  I doubt anything will happen but our punishment.

  30. hilaw says:

    you said a lot in so few words. bravo.

  31. Hm, I wondered if I was the only one who noticed.

  32. AmeliaHart says:

    Anything Glenn Beck related makes me want to vomit…. I only hope most people will recognize this very transparent display of racism.  

  33. TheSutraDude says:

    Those people really make me sick. Beck is a total idiot who when confronted looks for the nearest escape hatch. Restore America’s honor? That’s what we need to do because of the Beck/Palin rally.

  34. right @mommachatter – because spending money on education and health care and employment is REALLY BAD luxury offices? according to what sources?

  35. No it’s not just you.

  36. mommachatter says:

    @Prim_Prim4488 – Of course I have no problem with  money spent on education and health care…I thought I made what I do have a problem with plain.  When the large corporations were bailed out…from what I understand that money was not used to shore up the businesses.  Employees still lost their jobs, employees still lost their homes and the security as you mentioned of health care and and savings for their childrens college funds.  That is what I didn’t like.  If we are going to give out money, the taxpayers money, there should be someone that monitors where it has gone and that it went to support the purpose for which it was given. Please Google “Bail Out Money Bonuses”  I think you will find CNBC, Routers and many others that substantiate my statement.

    I… am so confused right now.

Speak yer mind.
