insane theories

Glenn Beck Figures Out Norway Shooter Is a Secret Liberal Terrorist

Slobbery sob queen Glenn Beck (and a frightening amount of other right-wingers) agreed with Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik that multiculturalism and Muslims are ruining civilization. Beck also believes that because Breivik is a terrorist, he must therefore be a secret liberal. “He is doing the work of a madman. He is doing the work of what all people who want big government always do, and that is commit terrorist acts,” Beck said on his fringe lunatic radio hour. So let’s see if we have this then: Breivik is in favor of big government, and he is an insane terrorist. Breivik is also insanely correct about how terrible Muslims are, according to Beck. Our calculations indicate that this makes Beck a liberal terrorist sympathizer! Hooray, that was a fun word problem.

Oh yeah and the thing made anybody care about this idiotic segment today was because he also says the children at the camp who were murdered, yes those murdered children, they were attending a political camp that “sounds like the Hitler Youth or something,” to Glenn Beck. “Who sends their kids to political camp?” he asks. DUH: The Tea Party, is who. [Media Matters]

    Is he trying to argue that Young Republicans don't have camps? If that's true, where do they stock up their dildo boats?

    1. Callyson

      Republicans, not campy? I'm guessing several rent boys in the DC area would beg to differ…

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        My kids went to vacation bible schools sponsored by various local churches (the Catholics, the Lutherans and the Episcopalians actually used to get together and do the ecumenical thing, intermingling all the kiddies), and my kids will assure you that vacay bible school is mostly games and stories and arts and crafts with a little time for prayers and Jesus-talk.

        Maybe, if there's any time.

        1. Chet Kincaid

          There's your problem right there: Lutherans and Episcopalians are barely even Christians, and Catholics don't care if you learn any scripture or not, so long as you keep turning over your tithes and kids. Should've sent the little barbarians to a Baptist, Pentecostal or other hardcore fundie/evangelical VBC.

    2. glamourdammerung

      Little James O'Keefe and his fellow wiretapper pals went to such a camp actually called the "Leadership Institute".

    3. horsedreamer_1

      How about the Badger Boys State, hosted at my alma mater? Strictly speaking, it's not partisan, but Ripon, City of, is the birthplace of the GOP & remains heavily Republican to this day. (Though, with so many of the residents being college professors, there is a slightly more moderate-left bent than the surrounding farmland.)

      1. ShaveTheWhales

        I think the American Legion (now there's a proper group name) sponsors Boys & Girls States in all of them, horse.

        1. horsedreamer_1

          I only go to the American Legion for cheap beer & free baseball, so I did not know that. Thanks for elucidating me, then.

  2. evan7257

    You, you, you're like New York, Jewish, left-wing, liberal, intellectual, Central Park West, Brandeis University, the socialist summer camps and the, the father with the Ben Shahn drawings, right, and the really, y'know, strike-oriented kind of, red diaper, stop me before I make a complete imbecile of myself.

    1. vodkamuppet

      Holy shit Jesus fucking Christ on a cracker that was fucking fucked.

      Also, did I get a glimpse of meth head Ted Haggard in there or did I just imagine that I saw him because it makes perfect sense that he would be in this movie?

  3. OC_Surf_Serf

    Glenn has nearly proven Quantum cosmology correct…the farther out into space Glenn looks, the further up ass he can see…

  4. GunToting[Redacted]

    The murdered children were attending a hippie, socialist camp sponsored by the Labor party in Norway. The Norwegian Labor party are liberal democrats. So, this crazy (yet selectively sane) liberal gunman just wiped out nearly 100 of his compatriots. False flag operation?

  5. iburl

    If the rightwingers succeed in destroying public education, we will all be sending our kids to camp. My kids will be going to a "Teabaggers are Idiots who like to wear powdered wigs Camp"

    1. poncho_pilot

      the only way the Tea Party could get behind trains as public transportation is if we were sending people to "camp".

        1. Lascauxcaveman

          Heh. Hell yes, lets throw all those keyed-up ADD kids into a concentration camp.

  6. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Let's not forget that Beck has constantly told his followers to bring the kids to his rallies.

    So, it turns our that Glenn Beck was a closeted liberal Muslim all along. No wonder FOX News got rid of him.

    1. horsedreamer_1

      Oh, he's closeted… in certain ways. Why'd you think he did all that cocaine in the late 70s/early 80s?

  7. elviouslyqueer

    Oh please oh please oh please let this be Beck's Jumping the Shark episode. Except this time, the shark jumps clean out of the water, snaps Beck in two, and then proceeds to feast on his bloody entrails for the rest of the week.

    1. CalamityJames

      But see, then I would have to actually watch that. It's a goddamn dilemma, I tells ya.

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        But they are known to take test bites out of inedible objects like surfboards, small boats, etc. The trick is to get a big pussy like Beck to go into the water.

    2. Rotundo_

      Not likely, unfortunately, Glenndo will be living on forever on the radio and on the internets in his GlennBunker in Tejas, and rest assured there will always be an audience for him.

  8. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    You have to love the logic of people like Beck when what they preach comes home to roost. If you haven't had a chance to read Mark Steyn's defense of himself (Norwegian terrorist might have read and quoted my anti-Islamic stuff, but since he didn't kill any Muslims the fact that he said the was killing people because they were helping the Muslims do what I said they did means he wasn't anti-Islam), don't, but realize, the far right is tying themselves up in knots because they agree with everything Breivik said, they are just not sure if you need to kill quite so many children to stop the brown hordes.

    1. Chet Kincaid

      They are only conflicted because he killed white kids. If he had killed muslim kids at a camp, they'd be quite a bit more open with their support, and would be turning cartwheels to prove that it was a madrassa or terrorist training camp.

      1. Doktor Zoom

        Still, Breivik did kill socialist white kids, so you'd think he'd get some credit for that.

    2. anniegetyerfun

      The verbal gymnastics have been amazing. If every single Teatard wasn't morbidly obese, I would love to see them attempt the same kinds of physical feats.

    3. horsedreamer_1

      Mark Steyn? The Mark Steyn, who gets pride of place at the back of book each issue of National Review?

      I think I'm going to faint. Such wattage on that guy.

    4. Doktor Zoom

      Best clueless line from Steyn: "A member of the country’s second political party gunned down members of its first… Muslims are now the preferred victims even in a story in which they are entirely absent."

      Yup. Islamophobia had nothing to do with a massacre by a guy who said, repeatedly, that he was saving Europe from Muslims. Why are we even TALKING about Muslims when this was clearly a dust-up that was solely about Norwegian politics?

  9. WhatTheHeck

    I didn't see one of those young people with Hitler mustaches.
    They were just young people wanting to preserve their Norwegian freedoms.

    Beck, you are a retard. Even Fox would say you are a RETARD.

  10. littlebigdaddy

    This is the greatest abuse of logic in something Norway-related since Monty Python's Dead Parrot sketch. (It was a Norwegian Blue, remember).

    1. johnnymeatworth

      The Norwegian Blue prefers big government and multiculturalism. Beautiful plumage….

  11. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    He is doing the work of a madman. He is doing the work of what all people who want big government always do, and that is commit terrorist acts

    Yes, the 9/11 terrorist were in fact motivated by their longing for the modern welfare state. In fact, one can remember how FDR and the Democrats of the 30s were able to establish the modern welfare state in America by bombing bus and train stations until the noble Republicans of that time finally relented in an attempt to stop the killing.

    As for the work of a madman, I'm sure that Beck is an expert of that…, or at least his staff.

    1. Redhead

      You know, I'd forgotten that the guy who flew his airplane into that tax office and, hell, the Oklahoma City bombing were all the work of men wishing for even more government in their lives.

  12. SayItWithWookies

    Well of course — because if you want big government, the first thing you'd want to do is blow up a government building. It just goes to show that if you start with your conclusion, you're not likely to let any of those annoying facts get in your way.
    And Hitler Youth?! That might be the most horrific, unfeeling, disgusting thing Beck has ever said, even counting the mocking of a competitor's wife for having a miscarriage. Really, he's a walking, talking poster boy for the FCC to crack down on this revolting rhetoric.

    1. PuckStopsHere

      What are you talking about? It's not like he showed a tittie on air or something.

      1. SayItWithWookies

        Really — free speech starts at the wallet and ends at the aureola.

        Anyway, here's a link to Beck's horrific behavior, including towards the wife of a DJ for another station:

        "A couple days after Kelly's wife, Terry, had a miscarriage, Beck called her live on the air and says, 'We hear you had a miscarriage,' " remembers Brad Miller, a former Y95 DJ and Clear Channel programmer. "When Terry said, 'Yes,' Beck proceeded to joke about how Bruce [Kelly] apparently can't do anything right — about he can't even have a baby."

        1. Lascauxcaveman

          Nobody told him being a "shock jock" usually involves using *humor* that's shocking, not just being an insufferable prick.

    2. Rotundo_

      There was no use of the "Seven Deadly Words" or the three additional ones. (Damn I miss George Carlin) So in the eyes of the FCC: No naughty phrases, no naughtybits, no harm, no foul. You can advocate genocide over the airwaves and not get so much as a "tut tut", but anything they consider "dirty" will run you up a tab unless you have connections or good legal.

  13. JoshuaNorton

    I love that when teabaggers, wingnuts or fundies do insane things, their enablers are quick to start pre-emptive ass-covering about how they are only representing a small sect of extremists.

    But when anyone else is involved they somehow represent their groups entire way of life.

      1. horsedreamer_1

        I appreciate your tact. Obviously, too, you never attended the sermons of Jeremiah Wright. Otherwise, you would have responded to J. Norton quite a bit differently.

        1. finallyhappy

          But(and this is the truth) Rev. Wright's mom was one of the two vice principals at my High school- the Philadelphia HS for Girls(and I was there during her tenure)

          1. horsedreamer_1

            Impressive. The only person from Philadelphia I know is only notable for talking funny. So, your brush with Brotherly Love is better.

  14. poncho_pilot

    so…is this GB's Coulter-like attempt to maintain his relevance? (and by relevance i mean, keep people buying his books.)

  15. GOPCrusher

    I'm confused. Isn't Big Government one of those Breitbart websites? Is Glenn Beck throwing his like minded travelers under the bus?

    1. horsedreamer_1

      All the extramarital sex, simulated, on Californication, & real, behind Tea Leoni's back. (She's hella good looking, too: why'd Dave cheat, then?)

  16. benjo765

    Ha Ha Ha – Gee Glen, right is left on the roads over there etc isnt it?

    Maybe he should focus on stopping his tea bagging buddies from destroying the US before dealing with norway, eh?

    1. V572 Hair of Destiny

      Well, Hitler, natch. I mean I don't know that he did that, but it's kind of like Blago or Casey Anthony: he was so awful that he must be guilty of something.

    2. Chet Kincaid

      You insult my intelligence with that link! Anyone who can't resist another retread documentary on the Hitler Channel already knows the answer. Tonight's show: "Hiter's Kitchens: Inside the PantryDivision of the Third Reich".

      1. Rotundo_

        That actually *would*be an interesting show: Hitlers' Chef? Imagine cooking for a megalomaniacal freak with digestive problems that would render him doubled over in pain and serially firing off really loud and really hellish farts. Much of the hack medicine practiced on him dealt with sleep and digestive issues mostly rank smelling gas. I'll bet that anyone cooking for him had some interesting tales to tell.

  17. PuckStopsHere

    I saw over the weekend where somebody said when a muslin commits an act of terror, all of Islam is indicted. But, when a christian commits an act of terror, he is acting alone.

    1. V572 Hair of Destiny

      It's like in Israel, where Jewish terrorists are always portrayed as madmen, whereas Arab terrorists are cool, calculating terrorists.

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        Atheist terrorists? By God, I've never heard of such a thing. Honestly, has there ever been one?

        1. anniegetyerfun

          Wingnuts would tell you that Hitler was an atheist, and he did bad things. Bad things that they like to think about while masturbating.

        2. Negropolis

          Well, I do think Timmy McVeigh considered himself and atheist. There are a lot of terrorists that are only "culturally Christian" if that makes sense.

    2. arihaya

      Stupid Libs… according to Pamela Geller when a Muslin commits an act of terror, all of Muslims is indicted. But, when a Christian commits an act of terror, it is also Muslim's fault

  18. Trannysurprise

    Glenn just couldn't support this guy. I mean he killed white kids and that's where Glenn draws the line. Up until then though, he was pretty much golden.

  19. fartknocker


    Don't come to Austin from your new Dallas home. We liberal weenies work out, drink beer, and our size 11 Justin Ropers (with steel toes) can be made to fit into your wimpy, run-away from New York cause you couldn't man up, waste of a fuckstick mouth breathing shit for brains. Little boy, if you can't make in New York what they hell makes you can make in a state full of people with the likes of Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Rick Perry, the Board of Education and the Bushes continuously screwing with us? My 77 year old mother has more charisma and guts than you'll ever experience.

    STFU and move into your house – and don't come out unless your going over to Shrubs little library at SMU to study more bullshit. Come south of the Brazos river, you're ass is mine.

    Welcome to Texas shit heel.

    1. Papa_Uniform

      Mr. Fartknocker,
      If you could see that one of those Justin Roper steel toes was placed in an orifice just a bit lower than Beckers ugly mouth, I'd be much obliged.

    2. Rotundo_

      Thanks, It is good to know that Texans will welcome Glenn into their midst warmly and make him feel at home. Here is hoping he does take in some of the local nightlife and get to know his fellow Texans on a much more intimate level. Size 11 Justin Ropers with steel toes sound like a good start to a long close relationship.

    3. LetUsBray

      Before too long Bleck will have made his house into a frou-frou little blowhard-bunker like his buddy Lardbutt, is my guess.

    4. greypanter

      Your Austin neighbor seconds the motion. However, it's unlikely that Mr. Beck will come to the epicenter of Blue Texas. The Republican ghetto of Georgetown is the closest he would dare to come, I'll wager.

  20. jus_wonderin

    Well, fuck dee doo, my day is now complete. Glenn Beck has told me what to think.

  21. MiniMencken

    How desperate for diversion do you have to be to sit through a Glenn Beck radio broadcast? His style of argument makes my ears glaze over.

  22. poncho_pilot

    man, the downfister has it in for me today. whatevs, you fucking bigot. if you want "Poncho Pilot to give a fuck about being downfisted" you'll have to suck it out of Poncho Pilot's cock.

    1. CalamityJames

      Suddenly, I really want you to care about being downfisted.
      Scratch that, I want us ALL to care.

      1. MissusBarry

        Eh, teh Wonks reward for well-played snark and it's evident that their benevolent upfisting far outstrips the fap-happy troll or two who happen to be lurking, trying pathetically to create dischord and ill will. I am secure in my p-ness and radiant in my wonkitude. The McDownfisties cannot break my wonky spirit. They can, however, go fuck themselves.

    2. fuflans

      what i don't understand is why they follow us in that special 'notification in the inbox' sort of way.

      almost makes me blush.

    3. AJWjr.

      All I have showing anymore is an upfist button, which, if it's the new normal, is gonna make ol' spanky quite sad.

  23. kissawookiee

    Glenn, if you're going to serve up that much pretzel with your logic, at least have the courtesy to include the several vats of beer I'm going to need in order to choke it down.

  24. Sue4466

    So, let me get this straight. The kids attending this camp were Hitler Youth, so the guy shooting them was a liberal trying to prop up big government? and that's why he also bombed a government building?

    And Beck's audience just nodded their heads in agreement. Because "facts, meh. I got me some cheetos to eat."

    1. fuflans

      what i've always wondered is "do the scooter olds ALSO eat cheetos?"

      cause i think that's weird.

  25. Fare la Volpe

    That's it. The sky is green, grass is orange, and everything is exactly what it cannot be.

    There is no art, there is no reality, there is only nonsense. Conservatives have finally made me a Dadaist. L.H.O.O.Q.

    1. el_donaldo

      And if you were to continue posting that day after day it would still be as relevant – until Beck fades completely and the next Teabagger conspiracy king emerges or the next neo-fascist goes on a killing spree.

    1. ShaveTheWhales

      Hey, watch it! I'm 3/4.

      Oh, and Rehnquist went to my high school, to my everlasting shame.

  26. JackObin

    Someone needs to inform the Beck half-wit that the largest part of the gummit is the military, costing he and his billionaire bosses a trillion a year. He must also be told that said military is full of loons, racists and din-a-lings.

  27. Fox n Fiends

    Beck got some Norwegian Wood the second he heard about his new idol's shooting spree.

  28. NorthStarSpanx

    Hey, I was loathe to watch any kind of footage of Jesus Camp. Seeing those innocent kids slobber and speak in tongues is no fun whether it is an epileptic seizure or in prayer – However, I have NEVER fantasized about cutting them down with guns and blowing up buildings.

        1. Crank_Tango

          I hear the dog thing has been doing quite a show down in tj, with a donkey…that is what you meant, right?

    1. flamingpdog

      Yeah, now downfisty will have to go back on his meds so that he can clear his mind enough to start posting his cogent comments again.

    2. not that Dewey

      Yeah, but i just figured our liberal overlords were conducting an experiment on mandatory Soros-proper-thinking. Were we supposed to be choosing downfists?

    3. glamourdammerung

      I am sure spanky is going to have to defecate himself now and scream until he turns red. After all, that drives those libtards crazy to see morons coated in feces screaming incoherently.

    4. Warpde

      Sorry, I can only come up with this tribute to McDownfiester.

      "You don't have to worry, Kid. I ain't gonna kill you. You're the only friend I got. "
      " Mr. Watson, can you hear me now."
      "Oh, the humanity and all the passengers screaming around here."

    5. Cicada

      Yes, and I'm just going to say FUCK YEAH! I look forward to reading Wonkette without the threads dedicated to obsessing on the downfister. Added bonus: trolls will be forced to post out in the open instead of taking the chickenshit downfisting route. More entertainment value for the Wonketteers.

  29. kingcocrazy

    If Benn Gleck breaks winds in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    1. flamingpdog

      No, but if he lights a match, he can start a wildfire in Arizona. Illegal immigrants my ass, John McPlanecrash.

  30. deaddddd

    All Glenn Beck does is take Alex Jones' nonsense and water it down a little for his (more) mainstream audience. Example:

    Alex Jones: Breivik is a secret operative for the New World Order.
    Glenn Beck: Brievik is a secret liberal.

  31. lochnessmonster

    Beck would know what terrorism is…he spews talk that terrorizes the listeners.

  32. portermelmoth

    John 'Cum-stache' Bolton, a man of infinitely higher grace and wisdom than the Beck-oid, said these acts were 'very un-Norwegian'. Never mind all the Hagar the Horribles who turned the North Sea into an abattoir drain during the darkest of Viking ages.

    (No offense to modern Norge, but Bolton's just in denial that a white boy could have done these egregious acts.)

  33. el_donaldo

    The more the evidence mounts that Beck and Breitbart and their ilk are intellectual kin with the Oslo shooter and with conservative fundamentalists like Al Qaeda the world over as well, the more torturous the logic will be they use to distance themselves. Until the logic finally snaps. I hope it's fun to watch and not horribly tragic again.

  34. bflrtsplk

    So he's blaming big government AND the parents and the children. It seems Glennda is way off his meds today or he's playing with the bottle AND the spoon.

  35. Guppy06

    "He is doing the work of what all people who want big government always do, and that is commit terrorist acts"

    At least 3 out of 4 of our illustrious presidential assassins have been in favor of smaller government. At least 2 of those 4 (Lincoln's and McKinley's) were actually in favor of no government.

    A little fuzzy on the unsuccessful attempts, but I'm pretty sure the results will be similar.

  36. genxr

    He's right, this camp does sound like the Hitler Youth. And a Representative meeting constituents in the Safeway parking lot, that sounds a lot like the invasion of Poland.

  37. __kth__

    WTF does Beck think "vacation Bible school" is? (yes urban hipsters, there is such a thing, and it is every bit as simultaneously tedious and horrifying as it sounds)

    1. finallyhappy

      They have it in the city too- I've seen vacay Bible school advertised at churches on 16th street in DC(not the church right near the White House but as you go north towards my house)

      1. El Pinche

        Yeah, at least AJ is entertaining to some degree. Beck's shtick and his obsession with nazis is boring .

        Actually, I saw an ad for a book or movie with AJ narrating on some basic cable station.

  38. Goonemeritus

    So I actually listened to the full clip of this emotionally incontinent huckster. And in it calls Nazism an ideology of the far right. Did Glen not get the memo Hitler I’m told was a big lefty? Why does Glen hate history so much?
    That the right would dare to make this argument shows how soulless and bankrupt they have become.

  39. lefty74

    Boy's State?
    You remember Glen!
    Boy's State!
    Maybe you need hypnosis therapy to go with that electro shock therapy.
    You pitched and caught in a double header.

  40. Guppy06

    Wait wait wait… Breivik attacked government targets because he throught the government was too small?

    Similarly, then, Al Qaeda attacked the symbols of American business and militarism because bin Laden felt they, too, were too small. The mulsins secretly want greater wealth disparity and defense graft in the US!

    Ergo, Glenn Beck is helping to give The Terrorists everything they want.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Hey, how else are they going to build up the government without first DESTROYING the government? It's like making an omelet – gotta break a few eggs, and mow down some children, before you can get started. It's logical, if you're fucking insane (like Beck).

  41. flamingpdog

    Could we just, once and for all, send Glen to the Beck of the bus, or better yet, underneath it.

  42. flamingpdog

    A tad off topic (but not much), if liberals really were terrorists, after reading this story on the front page of the NY Times, I might reconsider sending my kids to youth camp up in Maine.

    1. finallyhappy

      , what about the woman who was tired of the private plane nonsense in Miane- so now she sends her kids to camp in Europe.

  43. Warpde

    "Beck also believes that because Breivik is a terrorist, he must therefore be a secret liberal"

    Trust me Glen.
    If all the terrorist, murdering, psychopathic fuckwad's out the were secret liberal's.
    I doubt you would be around to have this conversation.

      1. natoslug

        Terrorism, by nature, is an extremist act. Although I guess you could argue that the more extreme you get, the more you become exactly like the fucktards at the other extreme. And since "conservatives" have been moving the bar further and further to the right as fast as their fat little legs can carry it, you pretty much have to be an extremist to be a proper conservative, you're correct. Fuck.

  44. Duly_Noted

    Glenn Beck is willing to accuse murdered children of attending a Hitler Youth camp. I so wish Joseph Welch were still alive.

  45. neiltheblaze

    What's this? No down-fists to click? ha ha ha Our downfister asshole is gonna have to go back to pulling wings off of flies.

  46. x111e7thst

    "Our calculations indicate that this makes Beck a liberal terrorist sympathizer!", True but the really important thing about Crying Glenda is that he is a douche-bag sack of shit.

  47. legalize everything

    Sorry, I just got back from committing terrorist acts like I always do…so what's going on now?

  48. maggiethegnat

    liberal camp= Hitler Youth=liberal shooter eliminates more liberals. blowing up government buildings=supports big governement. Beck is clearly lost without the chalkboard.

        1. Doktor Zoom

          You were the first to ask if there was a prize, or a hazing ritual, or an honorary anything. So, in your honor, the trophy will now be known as the "not that Dewey Commemorative Hazing Trophy for Meritorious p-ness Embiggening"

  49. ttommyunger

    If I didn't know anything at all about Glenn Beck (or Andrew Brittlefart for that matter) I would think at first sight: that is a face made for punching. Knowing what I do about him, I would hesitate; not wanting to get any of him (them) on me.

  50. user-of-owls

    Funny story…and truthy to boot!

    Growing up, we had a summer camp in our fair pueblita that catered to…wait for it…urban Armenian kids! Talk about boutique! The idea for Camp Hayastan was that all those citified Armenians needed a dollop of country livin' and a whole steamshovel bucket full of indoctrination. Apparently, in addition to the Rope Challenge and Beadwork badges, one could also earn badges in High Explosives, Booby Traps and Submachine Gun Use! This must have been way better than swimming across the lake in hopes of copping a feel.

    So anyway, the rotten Feds raided the joint when I was 16 or 17 and spoiled the whole party. What squares! Thus your beloved Owls literally grew up next to a terrorist training camp…before it was hip to do so!

    1. Negropolis

      He was your mom. I regret that there is no more downfist to register that you are a troll.

        A troll that gave you a +1. BTW whats a downfist ( a autistic martial art form?) I think you meant thumbs down as in the opposite of thumbs up.

    For Beck's audience, what they hear is "blah blah blah blah blah, you are right, they are wrong." They cannot discern between a logical, fact-based argument, and a disjointed, code-word filled, fantasy. I think there is an old Far Side strip that shows what a dog hears when you talk to it: "Blah blah blah blah FOOD blah blah blah." Thats what Tea-partiers hear. They pick out the loaded, code words, "Blah blah blah Liberals fascists socialism blah blah blah evil blah blah liberals did it." This is their level of comprehension, that of a fucking dog. True logical reasoning, an understanding of logical premises and how induction must also be tempered by objective observation, is as impossible to them as 10-dimensional calculus is to me.

    But the kids were at a camp just like the Hitler youth, and Barry's a secret Nazi because he's Hitler reincarnated, so therefore this guy was… shooting at potential democratic presidential candidates who didn't hold the positions this crazy guy wanted them to!

    Wait a minute… that's pretty much the official teabagger party rhetoric (don't retreat, reload!)

    I hope that no one ever forgets that criminal after criminal, terrorist after terrorist in the past few years has indentified Beck as one of their key inspirations.

    You've got Glenny all wrong — the Tea Party camp is good because it's a PRO-AMERICA Hitler Youth camp.

    "Who does a camp for kids that's all about poilitics?"

    Guess whos an Right-wing retard here? Yes, Glenn Beck. There is none parents that sends their children. It's the children that signs the papers of joining. This is youth taking action to be a part of the Norwegian goverment, so they can make a change, in their home town, their state or on a national basis. Glenn Beck really makes me sick.
    I am an AUF member. The labour party youth organization. And it just makes me angry that someone can compare us to an Hitler Jugend!

    As a Norweian socialist, I find everything in the clip midbogglingly offensive. I already knew that Beck was insane out of his mind, but this? THIS? It is so totaly backwards, it is like calling DoctorsWithoutBorders sadistic hartless torturers, or your founding fathers fredom-hating fascists. Don't you have the posibility to forcefully commit insane individuals to psycitric healtcare when it is so obvious that they are psycotic? He might not be harmfull to himself, but he sure is harmfull to sosciety.
