For almost a year, I’ve been warning you about the right’s new false TV messiah, drama queen Glenn Beck. And I warned you for several years about how FOX News toes the Islamic line, per its second largest investor and Rupert Murdoch crony, Saudi billionaire Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal, which is why I call it PAWNN–the Prince Al-Waleed News Network.
Glenn Beckmessiah Calls Geert Wilders a “Fascist”
I warned you about Beck’s gushing slobber over the Saudi’s/Syria’s/Hezbollah’s/the PLO’s favorite Congressman, Darrell Issa a/k/a Jihad Darrell. And, then, I warned you about it a second time, when he called Issa “principled.” And I told you how this ignoramus, Beck–who like a monkey, parrots whatever his producers tell him–repeatedly features what he claims are “moderate” Muslims on his show, when those “moderates” are, in fact, extremist Muslims.
I warned you about how Beck openly endorses global warming junk science and green movement socialism, how he gushes over smug lefty George Clooney, and how he matches his employees’ contribution to left-wing charities. And don’t forget his crazy statement that Scott Brown’s career will end with a dead intern.
So, I’m not sure why, yesterday, so many readers were shocked–shocked!–when Beck called Dutch politician Geert Wilders, the most well-known and effective fighter against the Islamic takeover of Europe, a “fascist.” I got a ton of e-mails about it. Some readers said, “you warned us about Beck,” but others were surprised and finally awoke from their slumber. Better late than never. Moreover, Beck endorsed the UK ban on Wilders entering the country. Wilders, today. Beck, tomorrow. There are many who would incorrectly group the moron Beck with the much wiser Wilders and ban them both if they could. So much for Beck’s claim to be a libertarian and support free speech.
For the record, I like Wilders, think he’s very courageous, and support his efforts. However, I haven’t written much about him because I am troubled by some problems that he could easily address if he wanted to:
First, some of his supporters, a very small percentage of whom are neo-Nazis and fascists. I know Wilders doesn’t support or agree with this, but I’m troubled that he hasn’t spoken more loudly against them and weeded them out of his group of supporters. I’ve gotten some of their e-mails, and a number of us politically conservative Jews, yesterday, had to unfriend one of his European supporters on Facebook, when she posted as her icon, a cartoon of her in an SS uniform. (She said it was sexy and kinky. Um, tell that to most of my family on both sides who didn’t quite think that as they were being shoved into ovens or made into lampshades).
On top of that, I’m very troubled by Wilders’ very close association with an American woman who made her money through a car dealership (which she co-owned and of which she was an officer), which made it a practice to engage in car loan fraud, using Muslim straw buyers. Police said the owners, which includes her, were in on the scam because it made them a lot of money, and then a cop was killed, as was the only employee of this woman who had the honesty and decency to inform police about the scam. The man was assassinated in a hit. And this woman is Wilders’ chief supporter in the United States. Clearly, he doesn’t do very careful vetting . . . or much vetting at all.
Still, the Beck comment is troubling. But it’s consistent with Glenn Beck. Contrary to popular belief, he isn’t smart or well-read or knowledgeable. But he’s an actor. And the lowest element of the conservative movement–those with little or no critical thinking skills–eat up his drama queen act. If he’s against Obama, they’re buying, no matter what. And that’s sad.
Not only is it sad, but it’s no different than the Obamamessiah crowd. Except that some of them have woken up. Hopefully the Beckmessiah crowd will wake up, too. But I doubt it much.
Beck owes Geert Wilders an apology. He wouldn’t dare call any Muslims, like his benefactor/employer Prince Al-Waleed, “fascists.” But they are. How sad that self-appointed “Fair and Balanced” doesn’t know the difference.
If you’ll notice, the network no longer uses that description, nor does it use, “We Report. You Decide.” That’s because they’ve already decided for you.
It’s up to you to allow them to do so. Or to do your own independent research and employ critical thinking.
