Beck Loses His Shit Over Ebola

Uh oh, cranky Glenn Beck is back. In a bizarre, frothing rant Beck careens between talking about how love can stop the Ebola problem and raging about how the government is “literally going to be the death of all of us.” And this can only be stopped, apparently, by humbling ourselves before God. Or something.

    “Beck Loses His Shit Over Ebola”

    Is that one of the symptoms?

    Maybe he’s caught it….

    ISOLATE HIM!!!!!!1!!one!!42^0!!!1!

    Beck [talks] about how love can stop the Ebola problem

    That’s not a bad idea! A breeding program between fundies and Ebola might render both the xianfacists and Ebola impotent, and thus eventually, hopefully, extinct.

    (And does this eejit think family members in western Africa don’t love one another or something…?)

    Beck Loses His Shit…

    So he’s nothing now?

  • petemoulton

    Well, Modus, the day is young, but I believe you’ve already won the internets.

  • Loqi

    I see no evidence that Beck ever had his shit.

  • Kevin Kehres

    I agree with Modus…he was full of it, and now that he’s lost it…well…empty.

    talking about how love can stop the Ebola problem

    It won’t hurt.

    But you also need trained medical personnel, the right equipment, and the resources to deploy both equal to the magnitude of the problem.

    Beck only intersects reality by accident. In fact, the USA after starting, falling down, has managed to get up again at least on domestic Ebola. Only one person has died, only two have been infected in the USA, and something like 4 cases brought into the USA have survived.

    The sample size is small but it looks like Hi Tech supportive care can lower the 50%-70% death rate by a lot.

  • raven

    At least seven people have died from respiratory complications brought on by the virus. Enterovirus D68 has caused particular concern …

    To date, seven people mostly small children have died from Enterovirus D68.

    Ebola 1, Enterovirus D68 7. This tells you the value of PR. If Enterovirus D68 was on Fox News, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, and lunatic fringe sites 24/7, we would have the GOP demanding that Obama appoint an Enterovirus D68 Czar and restrict travel from injected areas. Since this virus seems to be in all states, that is going to work really well. And wait until the rest of the world, blockades that virus ridden USA for their own safety and survival.

    He’d probably lose more shit with dysentery.

    Well, Modus, the day is young, but I believe you’ve already won the internets.

    I know Modus winning the internets is a stuffy old meme by now, but that one didn’t win the internets by far unless all you read is this blog, and it’s an old joke anyway (enema, matchbox anyone?)

  • John Pieret

    Let’s see … rant against rational (even if ultimately wrong) responses to crises, insist on irrational responses (as if falling on ones’ knees would do anything) … the only thing he left out was bursting into tears.

    Even if you were correct, it is not an “old joke”. It’s “aged” (or, for hipsters and grandmothers, “heirloom”). See? It sounds all classy and stuff when I say it like that.

  • blf

    Beck loosing his shite means he’s started another pyramid scheme, with the only difference being this one has physical, soft, smelly, and unhygienic pseudo-pyramids.

  • lpetrich

    He could start by doing what some people did in response to the Black Death: whipping himself: The Flagellants Attempt to Repel the Black Death, 1349

  • =8)-DX

    @Modusoperandi

    So you’re saying you’re an “aged P”? =P

  • Sastra

    I watched that and have no idea what Beck expects Congress to do. But they better damn well do it!

    And falling on your knees, admitting you know nothing, and letting a Higher Power take over? The last person who told me that this is how you let go of arrogance and gain wisdom was a New Ager who thinks Ebola is caused by belief in the physical world. Yeah, it can kind of go all over the place that way.

    Lemme see, now, if we just install Glenn as a fascist dictator, all the problems will be solved. Glenn, do us a favor and humble YOURSELF and shut the fuck up.

    OT but interesting. It seems the US isn’t the only nation confused over the roll of religion and the military, it is also a very interesting blog:
