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.
