It is a true sign of ignorance to go on television and pretend to talk about something like an “expert” and back it up with the “learning” you did from watching a weekend of news.
Glenn Beck is America’s ultimate moron. It’s a disgrace to true Republicans that Beck is their “intellectual” representative because would never stand up under even the slightest scrutiny. Notice how he controls his message so that there is very little resistance. No dialogue, no debate, no discussion, just angry rhetoric which an air of superiority and a touch of egomania. Why he would try to simplify the situation in Egypt boggles the mind.
He notices mobs in the Middle East are “always” rioting and setting cars on fire. This after a week of peaceful protests by millions, marred only by the documented incitement of plainclothes government police setting cars afire. There is no mention of media fixation on the violence, no mention of the fact that protests have been a source of change throughout human history.
What about the crowds in Prague protesting the Soviet occupation in 1968? Or in Tiananmen Square in Beijing in 1989?
If this clip doesn’t disturb you, the God help us all…
