Stupid Is As Stupid Does

May 2, 2007

Reading the verbal gymnastics Glenn Beck puts himself through while attempting to link the Nazis and the Holocaust to Al Gore and attempts to curb global warming, I am beyond mere astonishment. I stand in awe. Glenn Beck may well be the most stupid man on the planet, right here, right now:

I go on vacation for three days, and I decide to take my family away. And I’m there at the beach, and we’re reading. And I take — my wife takes some magazines and stuff, and we take the books for the kids, and I take The Years of Extermination [HarperCollins, March 2007]. It’s a new book. And I just — ’cause it’s, like, 800 billion pages thick. I’m just not going to have the time to read it. And I’m doing some research right now for some other thoughts that I have that are probably six months away from percolating.

And I’m reading this book trying to do some research. And what this book is, is how do you get people to kill people? How do you get — not just Germany — all of Europe to kill the Jews. To round them up and kill them. How do you do that? That’s what this book is about. And it is a phenomenal — it is scarier than Mein Kampf. I read Mein Kampf because — that was my first foray into evil. And I read Mein Kampf, and I read it because I wanted to know — did the Germans know?

Now, here’s a book that outsold the Bible in World War II. Did they know? They clearly did. Why this book, The Years of Extermination, is more frightening is the whole world knew. And when you see what was in the papers at the time — I kept reading it going, “Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. I have read these things in some places about the Jews, in some places about what’s coming in other places on global warming. I have seen these things happening right now.” And I understand World War II much, much better because we’re here again, gang. We are here again.

And I read this one part on global warming about how they got — what was the first thing they did to get people to exterminate the Jews. Now, I’m not saying that anybody’s going to — you know Al Gore’s not going to be rounding up Jews and exterminating them. It is the same tactic, however. The goal is different. The goal is globalization. The goal is global carbon tax. The goal is the United Nations running the world. That is the goal. Back in the 1930s, the goal was get rid of all of the Jews and have one global government.

You got to have an enemy to fight. And when you have an enemy to fight, then you can unite the entire world behind you, and you seize power. That was Hitler’s plan. His enemy: the Jew. Al Gore’s enemy, the U.N.’s enemy: global warming.

Forget words like “argument.” To make an argument, one marshalls thoughts and supporting evidence, then assembles them into a compelling picture. This guy’s thoughts are like marbles rolling loose on a ship’s deck in rough seas. A person of normal intellgence would have to have seven-eighths of his brain surgically removed just to get himself down to the intellectual level where he could discuss this subject with Beck without walking away in utter disgust.

And this guy has his own radio show and a choice spot on CNN. Tell me that one about the liberal media again, please.

    So what is it with this guy> Do you think he spent too much time licking the walls when he was a little kid?

    Marbles? One must have been at least sane at one point to lose any marbles one may have possessed.

    I never understood the reasoning behind his hiring at CNN. I had never heard of the man prior, and after 5 minutes of listening to him when I first stumbled across his show (I slipped on the marbles on the floor and my finger accidentally changed the channel) I knew I wouldn’t listen or watch ever again..

    I just don’t get the mindset that makes his sort of intellectually-empty semi-statements-oaths-pejoratives as some form of logical thought, or for that matter, turns him out to the world as a voice of reason.

    I know 10 or 12 meat heads who I could put on the air to spout this sort of nonsensical conservative humming, but why? The points he holds up ostensibly as argument are that God is good, liberals are bad; Terrorists are bad, liberals are bad; President Bush is good, liberals are bad.

    The same mind-numbing litany of 8th grade ad hominems cloaked as some sort of serious thought makes me seriously wonder about CNN. What is his point? And why must we hear from such a fumbledick on items of national, state and local importance?

    As if somehow being a believer in God endows one with some sort of supernatural intellect. Instead, you end up watching a ninny. The sort of guy you slapped upside the head as you were growing up because he was ALWAYS wrong.

    That’s a professional radio guy? He sounds like the stoneheads who used to call me at WFMU in the middle of thw night just to bend my ear, I wasn’t even putting calls on the air.

    Glenn Beck was hired by CNN for one reason — to act as a brownshirt who stirs up the fascist elements of the Republican Party. Thugs like him do the dirty work of Time Warner (and Clear Channel too).

    Think Beck is harmless? Ask him about the police riot on an immigrant rights rally in Los Angeles the other day. The LAPD also went batshit on camera crews from at least 2 TV stations. Not surprisingly the LAPD is run by William Bratton, a thug who learned his craft at the knee of Rudolph Giuliani.

  5. Caveat Says:

    This guy is a f**king idiot.

    I’m glad I don’t get CNN.

    He has thoughts (now) which won’t percolate for six months or so? WTF is that supposed to mean?

    His first foray into evil was reading a slow, stodgy book? What was his second?

  6. toasterhead Says:

    I wonder how long it will be before the climate skeptics realize that every “theory” they spout has been discredited long ago. Lackeys like Glenn Beck (who, for the record, I’m not saying is worse than Hitler), don’t do reporting, they just pander to their neocon/anti-science overlords.
