Glenn Beck on Obama

23 October 2009

From Obama vs. FOX by Frank Schaeffer on ZNet:

Here’s a sample (compiled with the help of Media Matters and the online magazine Crooks and Liars) of just a small stock of the incendiary rhetoric and bare-faced lies your money pays for.

Fox News host Glenn Beck has:

# said President Obama has, “a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture,”

# flirted with the idea that FEMA is building detention camps,

# suggested that President Obama is purposefully “tanking” the economy to force young people to work for AmeriCorps,

# said that Obama is “moving us away from our republic and into a system of fascism,”

# stated: “We are a country that is headed towards socialism, totalitarianism, beyond your wildest imagination…”

# says Obama “Wants you to work as a bureaucratic slave to government.”

# said: “President Obama, why don’t you just set us on fire? For the love of Pete, what are you doing? Do you not hear — do you not hear the cries of people who are saying stop? We would like some sanity in our country for a second! We didn’t vote to lose the republic.”

# ran several segments, including one on his radio show, promoting the concept of the secession of Texas from the Union,

# promotes “one world government” paranoia, including a supposed plot to put us all on a global currency controlled by the New World Order,

# warned his audience about Obama’s supposed secret plot to grab our guns,

# speculated that it is actually liberal “political correctness” that inspires right-wingers to go on murderous killing rampages…

Does Obama hate white people?  Was your application to AmeriCorps denied too?  If Texas secedes, can we keep Austin?  What do you think?
