So Glenn Beck decides to go for the jugular against the obama administration, calling the president himself a racist and predicting a doomsday of communist fascism for America because of the collectivist socialist agenda of the obama administration.
Next, a group called Color of Change organizes an effort in response to Beck’s ranting and raving to dissuade companies from advertising on Beck’s show. This letter-writing and phone-calling campaign is somewhat successful. Several companies, though they continue to advertise on Fox, pull their ads from Beck’s particular show.
Glenn Beck says, “This is war!” and uses his cable TV pulpit to go after Color of Change and dig up as much dirt as possible on the group. What do they soon dig up? Why Van Jones of course — co-founder and inactive member of Color of Change. This guy claimed sympathy with Marxist and communist groups early in his career and is an unabashed racial activist. He also, to his everlasting regret I’m sure, once signed a petition calling for an investigation into whether 9/11 might have been an inside job. AND, he just so happens to have have had a pretty influential job in the obama administration. Pay Dirt for Glenn Beck!
But the story doesn’t end there. Now Keith Olbermann, mighty liberal warrior for the forces of truth and justice loudmouth white dudes, enters the fray! He’s calling on HIS audience to dig up as much dirt as possible about Glenn Beck.
I would call Beck and Olbermann and their ilk a bunch of screaming Spider Monkeys flinging shit at each other. But that would be an insult to Spider Monkeys.
This isn’t our battle Pumas. Let’s not be drawn into semantic and volatile arguments about the relative harm of the n-word versus the b-word. That’s juvenile and is guaranteed to lead to angry arguments rather than insightful debates. This argument is NOT about truth, justice, or the American Way. It’s about Glenn Beck and Keith Olbermann and their RATINGS. It’s about who gets how much money and influence. That they are willing to pick up poop and throw it at each other in order to get the money and the fame says something pretty sad about them — but it doesn’t have to say anything about us.
Let’s leave the shit throwing to these monkeys clowns:
