Now is the time to get Glenn Beck into an Institution…and off the air.

Glenn Beck

Beck came out with outrageous attacks against Liberal millionaire George Soros this week… and Fox News continues to support him. Is this because a pile of conservative viewers actually BELIEVE HIM? Jeez, I hope not.This from Alex Pareene in Salon (there’s more in the article… go in and read it.):

DAVOS/SWITZERLAND, 27JAN10 - George Soros, Cha...
George Soros

Beck aired a series of shameless attacks on George Soros that seemed ripped from the pages of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The message? Financier and philanthropist George Soros is a “puppet master” secretly at the center of a vast conspiracy that aims to destroy our economy and take over the nation through deceit.

The proof? A lot of selectively edited quotes, wild innuendo and the fact that Soros “collapsed regimes” in “four other countries.”
Beck blatantly flirted with classic anti-Semitic tropes, knowing he’d be called on it but confident his friends would have his back. His taunting response to criticism: If he’s a lying anti-Semite, why would Rupert Murdoch allow him on the air?

But the craziest bit of the entire thing came when Glenn Beck accused Soros — a 14-year-old Jew in Budapest attempting, during the war, to survive the Holocaust — of collaborating with the Nazis and “helping send the Jews to the death camps.” Yes, that happened. Repeatedly.

  1. I find it fascinating that Beck has not done his chalk board routine on FOX. The board would read something like

    Fox owned by wet-back Murdock;
    Backed by foreign-born Arabian Prince;
    Born-out by an autocratic-ruled Saudi Arabia;
    Ruled-in by the-branches of Bin Laudin;
    Branches-out of a-Republican Bush tree;
    Republican-partied oil-based Oiligarchy;
    Based oily Republican Rules of Al-quaida;
    ERGO
    Fox is Republican and the off shoot of Al-quaida

    To invest in the continued

    Conspiracy to put fear into the hearts of all human kind.

  2. if he is breaking the law sue or prosecute him. but otherwise you are just trying to stifle free speech

    • No, I am identifying what Glenn Beck is doing as performing, on a medium with public access, “hate speech.” The National Telecommunication and Information Agency defines hate speech as:
      * Speech that advocates or encourages violent acts or crimes of hate.
      * Speech that creates a climate of hate or prejudice, which may in turn foster the commission of hate crimes.
      Indeed, this is what Beck’s lies about Soros does. And as we have plenty of evidence about crimes committed by loonies who listen to this stuff, what he is doing is both instigative and dangerous and has no business on any network.
