Last Saturday’s flop of a march on Washington was Glenn Beck’s idea. Wingnuts claim that 2 million or more showed up, although the actual figure was only in the tens of thousands. Color of Change can tell you why anyone showed up at all:
So, the Million Moron March, while good for laughs at the expense of the morons, has a serious underlying purpose: to derail democracy by claiming that it wasn’t the will of the voting majority, but a nefarious (nonexistent) communist conspiracy that put Obama in power.Meanwhile, Beck’s whiny-ass show is suffering; it’s lost half its sponsors thanks to some serious good work by CoC and ordinary people who are sick of hearing racism and hate speech being passed off as “patriotism”. What say we kill the remainder, and thus make his corporate bosses seriously reconsider their bad business decision that essentially entails treason and gross racism?

This summer, Beck said:That statement fits into a pattern of rhetoric from Beck designed to stoke racial paranoia and fear. He has claimed that President Obama has a “reparation appetite” and a desire to use his policies to settle old racial scores. Beck’s overall plan is to create an atmosphere in which the White House can accomplish nothing, and he’s carrying it out by preying on race-based fears and mobilizing hate. Beck relies on dishonesty, distortion and exaggeration, and he is embarking on character assassinations of Obama administration officials with whom he disagrees.FOX has a horrible track record on pushing racist propaganda, but Glenn Beck appears to be taking the network to an even lower standard. He’s trying to divide and distract America when we should be coming together and talking about issues that really matter–like health care and the economy.
This president has exposed himself as a guy over and over and over again who has a deep-seated hatred for white people…this guy is, I believe, a racist.
