When will Glenn Beck turn on Bachman and Romney?

One of Glenn Beck's big complaints (and lies) is that Barack Obama has surrounded himself with socialists, communists, anti-capitalists, and "revolutionaries".

So what I'd like to know is, if revolutionaries are a bad thing, will Beck be just as vocal with denunciations of self-proclaimed revolutionaries James Inhofe, John McCain, Michelle Bachmann, and Mitt Romney? And if not, will he then admit to being nothing more than a fear-mongering charlatan and a partisan fraud? I think you know the answers.

At a town hall Wednesday night, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) told constituents, "We're almost reaching a revolution in this country."

The reason? "People are not buying these concepts that are completely foreign to America." ...

Inhofe isn't the first to predict a revolution. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told a town hall on Tuesday, "We're seeing the beginning of a peaceful -- and I emphasize peaceful -- revolt in America."

In March, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) called for citizens to be "armed and dangerous" against an energy tax and that "having a revolution every now and then is a good thing."

And in May, former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney said Republicans need to "once again lead the American Revolution."

Here's another interesting Beck tidbit: Orly Taitz, queen of the birthers, she of the lawsuits and the fradulent Kenya birth certificate, watches Glenn Beck and thinks you should too. A stirring endorsement for the man, no?

The good news is that ten more companies have pulled their advertising from Beck, bringing the total to fifty. And these companies aren't nothing - among the newest ten are Bank of America, Travelers Insurance, and Vonage. Many of the ads we know and love/hate - the Travelers J umbrella insurance, the Geico cavemen - are gone from Beck. The question is, when will Beck be gone too?

Nah, you just don't think like a Republican

There are good Revolutionaries....The Founding Fathers...that's whom these crazies think they are.

And, there are BAD Revolutionaries, Marxists, like this guy:

It goes to eleven

My question is where does he go from here?  It seems like he shot his wad with all of his "socialist" talk last year.  Now he needs to ratchet up the rhetoric but has no where to go but "Nazi".  From there, where does he go?  Lord's Resistance Army?  Khmer Rouge?  Aliens?  Backwards B?

Religious Apocalypse is the natural next step

in the hierarchy of increasing hyperbole.

Glenn Beck: "The Public Option is the trigger event in the Rapture, it's the left behind scenario's starting point!"

The question is, will Chuck Grassley at the next town hall basically come out with:

"I think people SHOULD be concerned that the Public Option is the end of time and the starting of 1000 years of biblical tribulation...I can see why people are worried!"

BTW, Recommended for the mention of Orly Taitz

I just can't get enough of that crazy she is packing.

Seriously, if there was an Orly Taitz reality show, it would be the only one I have ever cared to watch. She is appallingly mesmerizing!  I can't avert my gaze!

I think, in a couple of hundred years, when they can look back and use the captured video image to scan inside peoples brains and register them on a scale of normal to complete bat-shit madder then a hater, Orly will be used as the calibration standard!

turn on Bachman and Romney?

These people represent the people who are pissed the world did not/has not ended up the way they wish it had.  They worked hard, but the job was bigger than they thought and instead of continuing the good work they started, they got lazy and now they are pouting (if I can't have all my money and luxury and DREAMS of massive wealth, I am taking my health care for all and going home).

They have these ya-hoos to give them their 15 minutes of self-absorbed self-pity, but soon things will move on.  Bachman will loose (her re-election).  Glen will loose (his job).  McCain has already lost (his presidential bid and his soul...he is so damnded bitter).  

Soon it will all just be muttering under their breath whenever they go use there govt run health care at the clinic.

But it burns my ears to have to tolerate these douche-bags.

Re: turn on Bachman and Romney?

Rush has been going at it since the late '80s. It's a movement that taps into a fringe. And even if Beck loses his job, his books will still sell well and Hannity and O'Lielly will still be on cable. It's one thing to downplay the individuals, but don't underestimate their movement. Heck, it's got its roots not in Limbaugh and Schlafly or even in Goldwater, but as far back as 70 years ago in Father Coughlin's radio broadcasts. These people tap into a neglected fringe subconscious, and it's a fringe that is getting louder because it finally has a high-profile, visible mouthpiece.
