Glenn Beck: Progressives are like killers.

Once again, this requires very little comment, as if I could dredge out any more stupidity from this clip beyond what is right there on the surface even if I had years to analyze it.  Even summoning up the totality of all my eloquence, after conjuring up every ounce of vivacity and probing every recess of my mind for the appropriate rhetoric I can do no better than “this is dumb.”

    So progressives are smothering a child now. Nice to see he’s still got the same firm grasp of perspective and nuance and proportion. I’m surprised he didn’t go all out for saying progressives are raping the child, or that progressives are eating the child.

      Progressives are smothering the child in maple syrup before eating them.

        Well, duh. The maple brings out the flavor without overwhelming it. Everyone knows that!

        I prefer a good, tangy BBQ sauce.

    Taking hyperbole to a whole new level… not to mention the fact that right-wing rhetoric is the thing that, if anything, is going to kill generations of children through unmitigated poverty and its deleterious effects on nutrition, access to health services, access to educational opportunities, etc.

    Shame, he has a nice voice but says the dumbest things.

    • Loqi

      says the dumbest things.

      Many on the religious right consider this a challenge.

    I stopped paying attention to this guy back when every other word out of his mouth was Hitler or Nazi, and he had this weird fetish with his chalkboard…

      I don’t know who coined this phrase to describe this but I like it: Nazi-Tourette

    One non-sequitur after another… mix-n-mashed metaphors… not a single completely articulated sentence throughout…

    Or maybe I had a stroke while listening to that garbage.
