Watch and listen as Rachel Maddow describes how “patriot” Glenn Beck has taken to attacking veterans of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan:

  1. Zach dear, Rachel Maddow is the Glen Beck of the left. Can you spell TAKE OUT OF CONTEXT? Beck was not criticizing the vets themselves, although I understand that his guard would go up if Soros is involved.

    I have researched Soros myself for YEARS. George Soros is a convicted felon in France, broke the bank of England and on record as desiring a One World Government. I don’t know about you…but he is not someone I would trust. He is not a nice man. Have you read his quotes regarding Jews and death camps? It seems like he does not have much of a conscious and is probably the most POWER & MONEY hungry individual on the planet!

    Here is what bothers me most about the left. You appear to base things on emotion versus facts. You shouldn’t be quoting the propaganda shows of Beck or Maddow. Do the research yourself and come up with the complete picture and not some extremely biased tale.

  2. The context was criticism of Soros and not “attacking the troops”.

    That being said, Soros is a very smart man I wouldn’t call him a communist. The Bank of England broke itself with stupid monetary policy. Soros as well as others realized that artificial price controls would not last and that England would need to devalue the currency.Every investor should read his book “Alchemy of Finance.” I would also recommend his partner, Jim Roger’s book “investment biker,” which is much more entertaining.

  3. You are correct, Soros is a VERY intelligent man indeed. AND the rest as I described him. He is a convicted FELON.

  4. huh? – granted Ms. Maddow is the other side of the coin…but…the rest of your statement has nothing to do with the topic at hand. Is the IAVA a legit veteran’s group or not? I should base ‘things’ on fact rather than emotion…yet you have provided no facts that relate to the topic.

  5. Totally on topic mon cheri. Look what Zach wrote; I countered it. Period. Well, I guess I did expand a bit on Soros but still…

    Happy Thanksgiving my liberal bloggers!

    1. The topic was whether Glenn Beck was correct in castigating the IAVA as a communist organization…after his caller may a wildass accusation…from my knowledge of IAVA, I believe Zach’s assessment of Herr Beck is 100% right on target.

  6. Ok, ok, I misunderstood. BUT, if Soros is backing the IAVA, it’s not wildass accusation! Soros is evil.

    1. Well the only person who has said Mr. Soros is backing the IAVA is a anonymous caller on Mr. Beck’s radio show…I thought we were supposed to work from fact and not emotion.

  7. You’re expecting a right-wing crackpot to apply the rules to his kind consistently, Ed? Don’t you know the cynical IOKIYAR drill by now?

    That type of weak sauce is why a whole generation of people like me will never vote for trash like “Huh”.

  8. Wow aren’t we a little cranky today Jake formerly of the LP. There you go with the personal attacks and name calling again. Right wing crackpot and trash? I would love for you to call me that to my face.

    I said “if” Soros was involved it was bad, It wouldn’t surprise me as his tentacles are everywhere!!!

    What exactly is the LP? Once again I say Happy Thanksgiving to you. And I mean it. You can rip on me all you want, if it makes you feel better. It must suck to be a liberal in a RED State now. Now you will understand what it felt like for us all these years. God bless…

  9. Soros is an American hating socialist and Maddcow is just a typical MSNBC blowhard that lies, misleads and understands that the progressives who watch her are really as dumb as she treats them and will buy into any garbage she tosses their way.

  10. So after all of today’s huffing and puffing…none of you pundits have come up with key evidence that Mr. Soros is supporting IAVA?

  11. What Ed said. Who’s got any evidence that MoveOn is financing IAVA? Did Beck even ask his caller where she got her facts?

    By the way, if you’ve never seen Beck on the O’Reilly Factor on Friday nights I highly recommend it. In the presence of the so-called “Papa Bear” Beck turns into the unctuous, smarmy and sniveling little creep that he really is. Reminds me of Gollum.

  12. I do admire the republican’s organization and echo chamber. How they vehemently attack strengths and try and turn them into weakness. How they get people sitting in their living room in northern WI, to so adamantly do the bidding of a select few billionaires.

    The nerve of Soros giving money to liberal causes when he is a billionaire. DO NOT piss off the old boys club. He should know that he needs to follow the Koch brothers, richard mellon scaife, Peter Robinson, etc… and spend millions to make sure their taxes do not go up another 3%. The towers of virtue that they are.

    It does not matter who gave $$$ to IAVA, they are a legit veterans group. Paul Reickhoff, if you have ever heard him speak, is very non partisan. He cares about his issue and he doesnt care what party helps him on it as long as someone does. So Beck calling them a communist group shows the disdain he, and by proxy the right, have for the actual troops!

  13. Ed – I would like to see evidence of Soros backing the IAVA as well. I never claimed it to be true and Beck is a goof to go on what a caller said. I am not a big fan of Beck. I liked him somewhat in the beginning, but he has gone off the deep end.

    Proud…Soros has a questionable background that Koch bro’s do not. They may all be billionaires donating to whomever they choose, but when they have said what Soros said about Jews and one world government; my skin crawls. Plus his convictions.

    Who is in the Northwoods doing their beck and call? No pun intended. Northwoods? Right now it’s full of hunters 🙂 Seriously, please enlighten me. Peace out…

  14. THe Koch fortune was made by selling gas refining technology to Stalins Soviet Union. A whistleblower brother from the Koch company was on 60 Minutes 10 years ago claiming that the Koch brothers made billions by skimming oil from their many pipelines. Their dad Fred was one of the earliest and most rabid members of the John Birch Society, which accused Dwight Eisenhower of being a secret communist.

    Not a questionable background? What does one have to do to be questionable?

    Huh? is right about one thing. The northwoods are full of hunters right now. I live north of Spooner Wisconsin. Lots of gunshot reports throughout the day. We’ll be eating venison soon! My wife and I love it. Homegrown, local, lean. No grain fed beef for us.

    The Klan used to be strong up here. Now the Tea Party is strong up here. Hmmmm. The Tea Party types up here hang on Beck’s every word. It’s too bad. A lot of them are very decent people in many respects. Someday they’ll figure out that Beck is really screwing them over. I look forward to that day.

  15. And the deep water duck hunters are having a field day near my home as well…I haven’t heard so much shooting since the Zapatista’s were having a funeral procession through San Cristobal de las Casas while I was there on my honeymoon.

  16. People need to wake up the fact that Glenn Beck is simply another opinion pushing charlatan who is a product of mormon cult theology that he mixes with parts of Catholicism and his personal core as a dry alcoholic. And for the record, he is a Mormon and not a Christian. The two are not the same as one is a cult and the other is a religion. This makes Glenn Beck one very twisted screwed up moron who sold his soul to the lowest common denominator of personal stupidity. And for the record…the religion of Islam has far more in common with Christianity than the mormon cult.

    The truth about Beck is that he a dry mormon alcoholic who never got the counseling required for alcoholics. Because he does not possess a single ounce of journalistic integrity, this makes him the perfect abortion poster child for Fox Network. Considering the fact that Beck’s personal views are extreme Marxist Libertarian, his form of patriotism is false and he is a person who has no real substance or depth.

    Glenn Beck consistently demonstrates all the unstable behaviors of a dry alcoholic which include grandiosity, judgmentalism, intolerance, impulsivity, ADD, indecisiveness and blindness to truth. In short, Beck, Limbaugh, O Reilly, Hannity, Palin, O Donnell, Coulter and others like them frequently pervert truth, history, facts, religion and the US Constitution when they open their big mouths. Beck is simply part of a national league of pseudo-conservative idiots who make big money by selling lies and half truths to impressionable fools that occupy the lowest levels of society. Basically…tea baggers and registered republicans who are condemned to repeat the mistakes of history.

  17. That is a hysterical post. Dripping with hate flowing with ignorance and expressing the hate that fills progressives on a 24/7 bases. May I suggest you talk to your therapist about geeting a stronger dose of prozac you really seem to be losing touch with reality…..hope you don’t have access to weapons of any sort.
