Beck-FOX death toll begins: FED slaying

Well, what did you think was going to happen?

After months of pumping incoherent rage into the media, some of Beck’s more loyal followers, some inbred-Jed types — who don’t understand that Beck is owned by FOX, which is owned by big business, and that the goal is not to tell the truth, but to torpedo health care reform — have taken action.

Let’s back up a moment.  Let’s see how we got here.

How have the conservatives run the country into the ground?  Let us count the ways:

  1. Started a needless war in Iraq for oil, on false WMD claims.
  2. …which siphoned military force away from the war that was about terrorism, in Afganistan.
  3. Ruthlessly de-commissioned government regulation of American business.
  4. Taxed the rich less, in order to…
  5. Cut government spending that benefitted the poor, while…
  6. Increasing government spending that benefitted U.S. businesses, which in combination with the Iraq war resulted in…
  7. The creation of ballooning national debt.
  8. So these “pro-business” policies caused the U.S. economy to implode, at which point the GOP had no choice but to…
  9. Spend trillions of dollars to bail out the companies that created the problems.
  10. And there’s some other stuff in there, about turning Federal criminal inquiries into a political tool, imprisoning people with no trial, torturing them, and (oh yes) appointing people to positions of great responsibility (running FEMA, sitting on the Supreme Court) because they’re old friends or support Bush, without regard for their competence or ability.

Finally, after eight years of cluster-fuck-ism, the nation has the audacity of electing a progressive moderate President, who is what a conservative ex-military acquaintance of mine quite candidly calls a nigger.

And Beck and his ilk spew lies villifying Obama and the Democratic party.  Obama is an Arab; he’s a terrorist.  Obama isn’t really an American citizen.  The Democrats want to create death panels.  They want to control what doctors you see.

And now we apparently have Inbred Jeds in Kentucky killing some guy and scrawling FED into his chest because he works for the U.S. Census.

It looks to me like this killing needs to be laid at Beck’s feet.  Beck didn’t do it, but he is the public face of the propaganda machine that created the anti-Federal sentiment that lead to the killing.

We really need to start getting a grip on the truth in this country.  The GOP managed to gang-rape the economy in the first place with repeated lies, about just about anything:  The swift boat thing, for example.

And the problem is that the news media play the lies without calling them out as lies.  Because they’re supposed to be “objective.”  Because being “objective” means being respectfully servile to anything that a politician says, even when it’s a lie.  And the GOP know how to use that.

So, now people are killing Census workers and carving “FED” into their chests.  Great, guys.  Congratulations, Beck.  You must be very satisfied to know that the hatred and lies you’ve been vomiting into the airwaves are working so well.

Jesus.

  1. Obama is an Arab; he’s a terrorist…
    Cite one time Beck has said this. You can’t.

    Obama isn’t really an American citizen…
    Oops, wrong again. Beck has never said this either.

    The Democrats want to create death panels…
    Well… depends on what you think a death panel is so I might give you this one.

    They want to control what doctors you see…
    You’re kidding me, right? Of course, they do. EVERY form of healthcare, private or public controls the doctors you see. I have gold plated health coverage and they still control the doctors I see if I want to receive full coverage.

    And Beck and his ilk spew lies villifying Obama and the Democratic party…
    You obviously have never listened to Beck very much because he villified the lion’s share of Bush’s policies as much as Obama’s.

    In fact, it might be argued that the thing people are really upset about is that Obama is looking more and more like a third term of George Bush.

  2. You obviously have never listened to Beck very much because he villified the lion’s share of Bush’s policies as much as Obama’s.

    FOX is pro-wingnut GOP. They endorsed, filmed, and helped organize all that teabagging that Republicans were doing.

    In fact, it might be argued that the thing people are really upset about is that Obama is looking more and more like a third term of George Bush.

    Nonsense.
