Almost every week, Republicans join a competition to see who can say the most outlandish things, and in the process, they push the envelope on just how despicable InsaniTEA can become. I trust that you will believe it, when I tell you that last week was no exception.

Good Lord! Does Glen Beck really believe what he is saying? Does he froth at the mouth as the words come out? I would think people might listen to this tool as a humor break, but to think some actually follow his words is more than a little disturbing!
Thank you, TomCat.

I keep thinking you might run out of these Republican idiocies, TC, but no such luck.... If Beck was two points lower in IQ, he'd be a rock. They used to put people like this in a special place that had bars and straight jackets so the rest of us wouldn't have to put up with them....

I really think Glen Beck is not well mentally.
I can't watch or listen to the man.

1. They really, totally, and absolutely don't get it, do they? A true believer is a true believer is a true believer. The actual nature of the belief makes little to no difference and is easily changed. People who question are more likely immune to black-and-white views. Of course the Right Wing WANTS us the be True Believers - but only for them - but it doesn't work that way.

2. I kind of spilled my guts already this week on TC's post about not just Kansas making life worse for the poor. I'll spare you a reiteration.

3. Perhaps all that ranting will work him up into a stroke. Oh, but wait, how will we ever be able to tell the difference? Maybe it already has.

4. What "surge" in male vanity? Male vanity has always been much greater than female vanity - any statement to the contrary is pure projection. Look, I've worked, both as a volunteer and for pay, with theatrical costumes, and it really doesn't take much study of historical dress to know that men have always gotten the bright colors, the good cuts, the fancy trims. Even in non-human species, the males get the bright colors, the good cuts, and the fancy trims while females are stuck with the drab stuff. Think peacocks. Think historical military uniforms, which (I hope unintentionally) mostly served to make soldiers excellent targets. The REAL question is why all of this came to a screeching halt sometime between the French Revoltion and Victoria's accession. I suspect it didn't really, it just got re-directed, but it's still a mystery.

5. Pat Robertson - Has he ever tried this? My experience is that exorcism doesn't work on personal problems even if the person agrees their issue is demonic and desperately wants to change (and I don't just mean being gay, which I am sure everyone here knows is congenital and NOT demonic, no matter how you define demonic). Pat is still being a poster child for "Only the good die young."

Fox news, Glenn Beck, and Pat Robertson in the same piece? I need some anti throw up medicine. Glenn Beck scares me because I think he really believes the garbage he spouts.

1) Faux Newsian: "To sum up: Receiving an education that leads you to question things is obviously the first step to signing up for a rigidly authoritarian group that tolerates no diversity in thought or appearance." . . . I think she is talking about the Republicanus/Teabaggerum if they ever gain the Congress and the White House. On another note, how can she be a Faux Newsian . . . I mean she`s not blonde? She certainly is a whack job!

2) Kansas Legislature: Ah Kansas! There`s no place like home. Great thinking from the same folks (Brownback & cie) who took balancing the state budget to new lows of intelligence and accountability.

3) Glenn Beck: "… these groups (New Black Panthers, MoveOn.org, Code Pink, Colour of Change) will be setting our cities on fire. Getting us to tear each other apart. " Could these groups please start by setting Glenn Beck on fire? And the only ones tearing people apart are the Republicanus/Teabaggerum!

4) Faux Business guy: For Faux male newsians, getting in touch with their femine side is a big step up. They can`t handle the intelligence required. Twit!

5) Pat Robertson: Barf Bag Alert!!! Speaking of demonic possession . . . he fits the bill!

For me it's the voting record of the GOP congress I find despicable. I believe if our MEDIA published all the the following ----the republicans would lose every election for the next 100 years.

. voted against the pay gap for women -against Violence Against Women Act ---opposes raising the minimum wage---voted against the veteran's bill 7 times --against the student loan refinancing, against immigration bill , against Farm bill, against ACA --but supports privatizing medicare-- No to a climate tax because the Koch's say NO--- and supports raising he retirement ages to 70 with reduced benefits and giving more tax breaks for the wealthiest.

"In Kansas, it' a Sam Brownback world; all those poor people are merely trapped in it."

So - Dorothy was really effing lucky when realized she wasn't in Kansas, anymore, but, like most republicans, she wasn't smart enough to realize it. Brownback took a state in relatively good shape and damn near bankrupted and for that he got rewarded with another term. I don't know what is in the water down there but it can't be good.

There is no reason ANY local police need be armed like the Big Red One (the Army's famed First Division, in which I was proud to serve while in Viet Nam - though decidedly not proud of that "war"), none. And that's what the military has been doing with anything it considered surplus, giving it to local law enforcement which has ZERO need for weapons of mass destruction and make no bones about that, that is what these armaments are. And their only purpose in the hands of local law enforcement can be local citizens protesting as armed revolution is unlikely to break out - for at least another couple decades.

It's too bad the fool who tried to link the teaching of diversity to ISIS recruitment doesn't get the fact that ISIS recruits far and away are receiving their "education" from local imam's. And to become of those all one (male) need say is, I am learned in the Koran. So, yeah, these young folks are not assimilating in one generation, but then neither did ANY group including my own Swedish ancestors. It takes three generations for one to graduate high school, normally, and four before one graduates college. I am fourth generation Swedish on one side and second on the other, so I stepped it up a generation, but then I had the advantage of being raised by people who WANTED to be here, who were not brought here as refugees. All immigrant populations but one have followed this same path, and that one is African-Americans, and they did not immigrate - they were brought here as slaves and are demonized to this day whereas for immigrant populations they only had to deal with Ole and Lena jokes and Polack and Irish jokes for a couple generations. The recruits out of America are first generation Somalian for the most part - a country so fragmented that most of its citizens are in other countries in refugee camps or here - where they are actively discriminated against.

The three R's for republicans - Redneck, Regressive and Racist. Pthhh to them all.

So sad - a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Unfortunately, he is the face of mental illness that has gone untreated for a very long time. I hope one day he gets some treatment that will help him live in reality.

I first looked at this article when my Sunday was turning into Monday and quickly decided to have a closer look when the sun was up again. Too much madness to sleep well on.

Glenn Beck is a terrible fool, no doubt about it, but "Though this be madness, yet there is method in't" Not Glenn Beck's of course, but he may have been hitting on some truth than is very uncomfortable for Republicans: "Expect to see more protests continue. Expect to see more of the usual suspects. Expect sometime between now and I don’t when, these groups (New Black Panthers, MoveOn.org, Code Pink, Colour of Change) will be setting our cities on fire"
Yes, Mr Beck, if you and your buddies keep your antics up you will indeed see more of protests, the more the better. I hope the fire isn't necessary, but I hope the kitchen will be too hot for you soon and you, your party and your masters can do nothing but get out of it.

Glenn Beck--- Rush Limbaugh--Ted Cruz---and the list goes on.
They earn their living by spreading lies, hatred, and bigotry to those who want to believe the lies, embrace the bigotry and feed on hatred. The scary truth: they live next door, walk past me at the grocery store. How can anyone stay sane with this kind of insanity surrounding us?
