    Looks like Beck isn't going to stop his brand of wingnuttery until the only people left watching and listening to him are diehard white supremacists and whack job teabaggers.

    i am actually surprised Glenn Beck reads anything, but not that much that if so, it would be a racist book rather than a fact checklist.

    I doubt he actually reads the books. But he does endorse them. Honestly, WTF.

    I imagine Beck isn't the only person in the US media to think Hitler "went a bit too far" or something.

    I know little about Glenn Beck, but can rely on the liberal 'watchdogs' of LPSG to keep me in the loop. Physicians.... heal thineselves.

    Glenn Beck is smart enough to know how to keep himself in the news headlines. That's the extent of his talents as far as I can tell.

    Hitler was a monster, but he wouldn't have come to power without the help of big business and the German aristocracy. Hitler is gone but not the later. And there is only white surpremicism uh? If you are raised by good people you know right from wrong. It is terrible big oil companies can pollute our waters, but who gives a shit if the disaster had been in some Nigerian river delta?

    off topic, but so true. Welcome to biased mainstream media.

    I've discovered in the media, you can go only so far before most people begin shut the doors before you arrive.

    ^^ this is why I called out all the self-righteous BP bashing. Corruption and incompetence are only worth noticing if they hurt you, it seems. Some Africans? Well, their lives are shitty anyways.

    People are bashing BP because they deserve to be bashed. The disaster is appalling and was preventable.

    If you have other areas of concern you think deserve attention (e.g. the plight of sub-Saharan Africas) you are free to start a thread on that, rather than importing arguments from other threads.

    You continue to be self-righteous while accusing others of being self-righteous. Do you understand the irony? Meanwhile, your shit stinks as bad as anyone elses, perhaps more.
