For nearly a century, the Anti-Defamation League has stared unflinchingly into the dark corners of America's social psyche -- the places where combustible tendencies such as hatred and paranoia pool and, sometimes, burst into flame.

How can it possibly be dangerous for someone to promote our return to the Constitution? If Obama can use community organization as experience for president, why can't others become community organizers and promote self-sufficiency? We want America to get back on the right track, not this disaster train we're riding at the moment. All of us who like Glenn Beck and agree with most he says are not republicans. So those of you on the far left can blame yourselves for taking us in a direction the moderates fear to tread.

Read the Federalist Papers. You need more education on our Government.

When you're lazy and have someone decide for you what to think, it's like handing your brain over to that person. You "agree" with what he says because you allow him to "tell" you what to think. Do you agree with "everything" he says or just some things? Is he like an "all-knowing genius" in your eyes?

What does he say that you don't agree with?

Do you ever watch C-Span which televises our government in action? Or does Fox News tell you what's going on? Do you trust yourself to make judgments on your own or do you need a leader? Don't be lazy!

More likely, you buy the Obama and Pelosi dogma that rots the brain for the sole purpose of consolidating democratic party power over your life -- the good old chicago machine way. Obama is a naive child-president, with no experience but is a bare-knuckled chicago ward politician of the Daley school. No morals. No ethics. Pure spin. All politics. No nuance or deftness. No right or wrong. No spine. No truth. Fill the ballot box with dead voters provided by Acorn. Spend trillions. Pay off the unions that killed off the american auto industry by making them owners of it. Kiss the rings of dictators. Hire underlings that are fond of quoting Chairman Mao. The list of insanity in this administration is endless. Goodnight America. Sleep tight. And Placitas, take a valium. You need it.

Here's how the democrat Congress really works, YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS! This is proudly displayed CORRUPTION. 1 1/2 minute long and straight from C-Span - how a vote was passed. Just watch this. This is our Democratic-Controlled House at work. It's their way all the way.
(the video is very short and very maddening).


If anyone wonders about our current Congress and especially the House of Representatives this youtube will open their eyes. Watch this, then cry. We are losing our nation and everything it stands for.

It's extremely helpful when intellectual deficients of the left use the infantile taunt 'teabagger.' It enables the reader to immediately move on to other content and avoid wasting time on anything a deficient has written or will write in the future. Thanks for this time-saving label.

As for this piece, did I miss something, like an actual description of how Beck has any similarity to Coughlin? Was that edited out?

I watched it. And a couple of others about Murtha. Being ambushed by a Micheel Malkins flunky. It didnt show how many were standing for the vote. And just because the crybaby Repug's shouted louder doesnt make the vote go to the loudest, but by majority vote. Sorry, your link was predictable frightwingnut bs.

You are mentally messed up or idealogically blinded if you choose not to see what happened. Questions were ignored. Snswers could have been given. Perhaps Murtha was just drunk or something.

Murtha was in control of the procedings. Thats his job. Repugs can cry and stomp their feet all they want. We already know how they been acting since they lost control of the congresses. Maybe it was payback from when they did control the congresses.How they bullied the procedings. They openly admitted such, but whined that Obama would try to reach out to conservitives and try to get bipartisan consensus. But repug's idea of bipartisan consenses is their way or no way.

I image Bill Press will be proven to be a pretty good prophet.

On CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday, radio talk show host Bill Press had this to say about Glenn Beck and Beck's recent use of the term 'hooking' to describe Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu's role in the health care debate:

"Look, I'm a talk show host, I am totally for talk show hosts almost getting away with almost anything they say, on the radio particularly. But I'm amazed at how much Fox lets Glenn Beck get away with. I think he is a ticking time bomb, and one day he's going to explode in the face of Roger Ailes, and they're going to be sorry they gave him that television show." http://tpmlivewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009...

Oooh drawing an inaccurate parallel with a person from the past, no real evidence other than seems like might be like & so on...

Worthless politics.

If only such attention could be drawn to a man who actually THREATENS TO DESTROY ISRAEL (the president of Iran). Instead of a man who complains about the White House and it's socialist toadies.

Thanks, I watched all the videos. I really prefer seeing people in their own words and this was interesting (and maddening)
