Oh my hell…
Seriously, someone get on this. Like now.
I should make a set of Terrible People trading cards and sell them.
Nominate some more by sending me a message/fan mail! I think this should be a thing.
Glenn Beck, claiming on his radio show this past Friday that if Barack Obama isn’t re-elected, there’s going to be race riots. Seriously. He’s not even trying to couch his racism any longer in coded language. And again, Obama is less liberal than Richard Nixon.
Here’s all I can think of now when I see or hear Glenn Beck:
Glenn Beck, demonstrating on his radio show today that no matter how heinously low he sinks, he can always grab a shovel and start digging.
Never mind his 9/12 group ran political camps for kids, right? It’s only Hitler Youth-ish when the left does it. The 9/12 group youth camps were described as a place where 8-12 year-old kids could have fun while “learning the principles of liberty, free markets, and limited government.” Plus, they’ll get to learn the “values of personal responsibility, faith, courage, hard work, reverence and thrift.”
Oh, and the whole Nazi reference is particularly tacky, considering Norway was actually, y’know, invaded by real Nazis during WWII.
Stay classy, Glenn.

It’s “Requiem for a Rodeo Clown,” more than 10 minutes of the scariest, most bizarre moments from Glenn Beck’s show.
Glenn Beck said Thursday that he will be visiting the former Nazi death camp Auschwitz in a visit to Poland, and he’ll broadcast a special from a town outside of the camp because this will help him “figure out,” he says, “how did this happen?”
"Poland, I didn’t know this when I first started doing my research." Beck said, "Poland rose up, a lot of Poles rose up, to try to help the Jews but they had nothing left. They had no arms." Though there were certainly many Polish people who helped the Jews during the Holocaust, the country at that point did not exactly have a reputation for passionate philo-Semitism. Towards the end of the war, anti-Jewish riots even broke out in several Polish cities as Jews were returning to their homes.
Beck is planning a "Restoring Courage" rally in Israel August 20, which he says will be a “life altering event” that the “very gates of hell” will seek to prevent. He has previously alluded to the Holocaust as part of the reason why his rally is so super important: “Because I’ve read history. I know how it ended last time and I know how it started. First they came for the Jews, and I said nothing. Let me declare to the entire world, and ask who’s with me. This time I will stand. This time I will say something. This time I will be a force for good.”
Asshat extraordinaire seeks attention as a radical, monetarily concerned, pseudo concern troll incarnate. That’s what I read.
Glenn Beck, upping the paranoia ante June 13 and, uh, appearing to encourage violence against the president. But metaphorically, of course.
Is he actually serious, or is this born of some adolescent desire to shock? At this point, Glenn, just GTFO.
Glenn Beck compares Cesar Chavez to Josef Stalin in a bizarre rant about the christening of the USNS Cesar Chavez.
A few notes:
And if that’s not bad enough for you, Beck gleefully suggests the “USS Margret Sanger - the cannons can shoot out fetuses, or shoot directly at pregnant bellies!”
Glenn Beck’s sun is setting, and he’s reaching for more and more outrageous soundbites. This one is pretty close to taking the cake.
Mike Huckabee, defending himself from attacks by Glenn Beck, based on his support for Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign.
Huckabee’s said some pretty terrible things himself, but I have to give him props for handling Beck’s ridiculous vitriol in such a classy manner. Bravo.
Through the magic of magnetic poetry, make your own conspiracy theory, Beck-style!
Fuck you, pal. I’m a college student. I have very limited resources. I depend on Planned Parenthood.
True fucking story. Right here.
Glenn Beck says Japan's earthquake might be a “message” from God.
"We can’t see the connections here," he said on his show Monday. “I’m not saying God is causing earthquakes - well I’m not not saying that either!”
"What God does is God’s business," Beck continued. "But I’ll tell you this…there’s a message being sent. And that is, ‘Hey you know that stuff we’re doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.’ I’m just saying."
Beck continued trying to make a connection between human behavior and the natural disasters that have wreaked havoc in Japan, even casually mentioning “radical Islam” before revealing what he called “the answer.”
"The answer is, buckle up!" he said. "Because it’s going to be a bumpy ride."
In light of the disasters that have devastated Japan, the Fox host stressed people should follow the biblical Ten Commandments, or what he referred to as “10 rules of thumb.”
"What do you say we start doing those things?" he asked. "Because the things we are doing really suck. And they’re not getting better."
Shut the fuck up. Now.
I’m not sure which is more unbelievable: Glenn Beck as scientist, or the Code Pink smear…
“At the start I thought it was funny, but now I know that is dangerous… their paranoia works better when they can imagine a devil. Now that devil is me.”
