Air America sez Glenn Beck is Osama or WTF

First, note what Beau Friedlander ('editor-in-chief of Air America'), in What 'Bin Laden' Is Saying About Glenn Beck, thinks is a laughable contention, something Air Americans must never consider the least bit reasonable:

Bin Laden once again pointed to the US support of Israel as the main cause of it's problems in the Middle East, and more specifically at Secretary of Defense Robert Gates continuing on with President Obama, which indicated that Obama was really a puppet of [the] Republican agenda, and specifically Bush policy in the Middle East. One supposes this might have been funny if bin Laden had better timing.

The rest is a hard-to-follow rant -- if you haven't been part of the orchestrated pro-Obama band very concerned about right-wing anti-Obama protests -- but apparently Friedlander thinks Glenn Beck and his minions are either behind or supportive of the Bin Laden tape, cuz they want to kill Obama and and so apparently does Bin Laden:

The specter of violence is clear enough. Osama bin Laden, if that was him (doesn't matter if it was just a garden-variety US-hater), pointed out that the president is vulnerable. What did he mean? Al Qaeda is a literal-minded group. The chances are reasonably good that the tea parties and the birthers and the Joe Wilson comment are somewhere at the root of the purported bin Laden comment.

. . . If the dog-whistle racsim of Obama opposition in this country continues to escalate, these latest alleged words from the bin Laden camp may be oft quoted regarding our "vulnerable" president.

Actually, reading 'his' words, I agree with these two commenters' first impressions, that 'Bin Laden' sounds much more maverick populist Ron Paul or Ralph Nader ('fight the bipartisan War Party!') than corporate Glenn Beck far right. And, based on the tape, isn't 'Osama' a U.S. government hater rather than a U.S. hater? 'Osama' couldn't have tried harder on the tape to appeal to the "American people" and their common sense and to direct 'his' hate and blame at the American government.

Finally and by the way, I question whether the tape is of an authentic Bin Laden, simply because his focus for many years has been the three wrongs of Palestine occupation, Iraq sanctions and war, and U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, and the final two have been jettisoned without explanation, replaced by a single-minded focus on Palestine. I think many feel Bin Laden's major passion and concern has always been U.S. troops in his home country, and now not a word on that?

Anyway, American leftists, Friedlander is your left on the radio, for all purposes a subsidiary property of NBC Corporation. When are you going to turn it off?

Do you really want the usual cut-y - paste-y explanation with 3 insta-follow-up posts?  There are people - on blogs - on the Internet! who have typed comments - in English! with which this person agrees.  Come to grips with that piece of reality!

And to make my point even clearer, I say below stuff is what I say I see it says it is and some say something like the same.

Here's a block quote saying what I said above - but different!

And in a box!

But I still don't care about anything you say as long as you're nothing but a mindless drone.  When you start thinking for yourself and agreeing with ME you'll finally be worth taking note of.

Don't get on my nerves or I'll mock you with jive talk!

Knowing what fairleft2 is saying about what Air America is saying about what Bin Laden is saying about Glenn Beck - what more is there?

Take me now, Lord, my life is complete.

Re: Air America sez Glenn Beck is Osama or WTF

You have no right to be saying anything about fairleft!  You are just Koolade-addled Obamabot who is unable to breath without word from The One.  I wouldn't waste a single keystroke on you - especially knowing that deep in your soul is the soulless pit of a craven O-bot!  You still talk of the terrific dreams you had but I've seen the terrible nightmares that you can't escape - especially the one you had last Tuesday at 3:28 AM.  That was a real doozy, with all the three-headed horses and the backwards birthday cake!  It made you feel the shadow of fear that your Messiah is casting across the land.  

As long as you remain nothing more than a mindless presidential puppet I will continue to ignore every single word you type - even before you type them!
