Beck: Leftists May Kill Obama

Glenn Beck displayed his staggering lack of self-awareness and extraordinary skill at psychological projection by saying that he thinks President Obama’s life is in danger from leftists who are disappointed that he hasn’t brought the utopia they demanded from him.

While speaking at an event on immigration reform in San Francisco yesterday, President Obama was heckled by protestors demanding that he “stop all deportations.”…

“This is craziness,” Beck said. “I am not a fan of this president but I want the President of the United States to be secure and the President, I do not believe, is secure. I believe this president is in danger because things are spiraling out of control and he is looking like he is an enemy … They don’t understand why he just won’t seize power and do it, so he’s a traitor to their revolution.”

Seriously, Glenn. If anyone is going to kill Obama, it’s some heavily armed wingnut listening to you, Alex Jones and other conspiracy-mongers rant and rave about how Obama is a Nazi terrorist intentionally trying to destroy America.

"Yes. They just cast around until they find a grift that works."

    Glenn Beck still exists?

    Not really. Like so many other things, he’s only a figment of his own imagination.

    Yelling “stop deportations” being code for “kill the President” only happens in Beckworld.

    In BeckWorld, everything is a codeword for “kill the President.”

    Unfortunately Beck is still loud and even more obnoxious than ever…he has his own “news” network. I”m in the South and know folks who have it and follow him religiously. I believe he has a fairly significant following. Kinda cult like and he”s got all these white boys fearful of a brewing race war in the making.

    Because, in Beck’s world, disappointment is ALWAYS followed by murderous rage and an overwhelming desire to commit treason.

    “They don’t understand why he just won’t seize power and do it, so he’s a traitor to their revolution.”

    Wow. They really think the liberals are fascists, what with us demanding justice and equality and compassion and shit.

    He may want a generic president to be secure, but he has repeatedly stated that he doesn’t want this president to be secure. By calling this president a usurper and illegitimate so many times, he has fomented many people’s imaginations about killing the president. However, those people are his fans, decidedly not leftists.

    Teabagging Wisconsin Birther Arrested for Threatening to Kill …

    Teabagging Wisconsin Birther Arrested for Threatening to Kill … he and his group, the Christian American Patriots Militia, now have the Second …

    Gkenn Beck is always wrong. Right wing xian groups and individuals threaten to kill Obama on what is now becoming a nearly daily basis. Obama has received more death threats than any other president in history. One guy, a xian wacko from Idaho is in prison for actually trying to assassinate Obama, firing shots that hit the White House.

    In the last few weeks two people have been arrested for threatening to kill Obama. One guy was arrested, the other one is a long time mental patient. He was sent back to a mental hospital, undoubtedly in the lockup wing.

    The Christian American Patriots Militia guy is still on the loose. I’m sure they are giving him a mile of rope and seeing who else is in his xian terrorist cell.

    Two of the early wannabe presidential assassins were xian ministers.

    Anderson in Arizona and Wiley in the south someplace.

    They publicly said they were going to use witchcraft, AKA imprecatory prayer to kill Obama.

    It obviously worked as well as prayer usually does. They would have been wiser to consult an expert on that type of magic spell, perhaps a Voodoo Hougan or Warlock. I’ve read that DHS paid them a visit anyway.

    To be fair, at the last revolution meeting we decided that massive, blind deportation of people whose only crime is sneaking in was counter to whatever our revolution’s goals are supposed to be.

    Does anyone remember what our goals were? Cap & Trade? Wind power? Universal Healthcare? Cheaper college rates? Not invading the wrong country?

    Wait.

    That’s not much of a revolution.

    Come on, people! The Right wants to take us all the way back to the 1880’s! Let’s get some real goals, take one step forward and then promptly dissolve in a hail of internal feuding! Who’s with me? Come on!

    One possibility that comes to mind: Stochastic terrorism works and inspires a wingnut into an assassination attempt. While the investigation of the assassin’s background is underway, they baselessly assert he’s a “leftist.” After the assassin’s manifesto is released and found to contain nothing but talking points by Beck and other wingnut pundits, they will rationalize it away via No True Conservative and comparing the authoritarianism to Stalin and Mao, and therefore “leftist.”

    And if a Glenn Beck listener DOES actually assassinate President Obama, the Glenn Becks of the world will declare him to be either (a) a patriot or more likely (b) part of a false flag operation by the Leftists who were disappointed in Obama but decided to blame the far-right wingnuts, or what Glenn Beck calls “the centre”.

    It doesn’t have to make sense. The important thing is to keep the “kill Obama” idea in circulation, in the hope that, sooner or later, someone will heed the call.

    It’s fascinating to me that the RWNJs constantly mock the Far Left (i.e. anyone even slightly to the left of them) by calling Obama “Dear Leader” and “Messiah” as if that’s what anyone besides his opponents call him. My suspicion is that their authoritarian tendencies lead them to think that everyone worships their leadership as infallible.

    Thus, if it turns out that the leadership is NOT infallible, we will immediately turn on them as the enemy, as they would. I experienced this recently, when someone scraped and defaced an Obama bumper sticker on my car. When I posted a photo of it and comments on my FB page, one conservative friend of mine suggested that rather than a RWNJ doing it, it was more likely a liberal who was disenchanted with Obama.

    Black and white to them, no shades of gray.

    I want to stop Canada from exporting their crummy weather to us. Then I want 18 USC 2074, which makes it illegal to issue false weather reports, repealed. We have to start small if we’re going to combat global warming.

    Man who shot at White House pleads guilty

    By Evan Perez, CNN Justice Reporter

    He was also angry at what he believed was U.S. bullying of other countries, including in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and claimed that the president was the “anti-Christ” and told friends he was “on a mission from God to take out Obama.”

    Where there is hate speech, inevitably there is hate violence. Some people don’t have the judgement skills to tell the difference between empty rhetoric and orders from the gods. And xians love their martyrs. And the best martyrs are…someone else. They don’t want to be martyrs, they want someone else to do it while they cheer them on.

    Someone not with the program.

    Everything is a False Flag operation with them. The World Trade Center destruction, Timothy McVeigh, the KKK, the nuclear bombing of Charleston, SC, the government shutdown, the Christian American Patriots Militia, all False Flag operations by American Socialists to make right wingnuts look like…right wingnuts.

    Glen is right. I had fully expected the withering away of the state by 2010.

    What? you mean they won’t even use that NSA database? Well WTF is it for then? Aha – gotcha; another conspiracy.

    As I said before:

    “Beware the coming end-of-days & apocalypse!

    It’s simply Obama’s false flag operation to distract from [insert object of the Right’s faux rage de la journée]”.

    I think that Soros should fund a production of the movie, “Kill Bek” with all of the talking heads from the ReiKKKwing in a plot to assassinate the REAL MurKKKan, Glennie Bek, before he can bring us world peace and a millennium of progress.
