I’m back at work after Thanksgiving break and that can only mean one thing…listening to Glenn Beck in the morning for amusement. This week, Beck went on for a while about how wonderful and peace-loving his followers are. He recounted an anecdote about a book signing at which he was protested by mean-spirited, table-climbing Occupy radicals–and in response, his supporters sang Christmas carols. He talked about how the liberal media will smear them and say they are horrible, when in reality, these are the good people.
I spent quite a bit of time after election night on The Blaze, Beck’s online forum, so something about this didn’t sound right to me. And lo and behold, here are some quotes from Glenn’s peaceful fans:
“This country or at least half the people in it are a lost cause. It doesn’t matter who wins at this point if we are forced to live with these vermin. It’s time we start eliminating them now.”
“I for one will no longer give to charity in the event that my money would ever help someone who voted for Obama or worse someone who didn’t get off their lazy azz to go vote or decided that it didn’t matter.”
“I like Rush’s idea: kick all of the Liberals out of the West Coast (and shoot them if they try to come back)”
“I’ve lost all faith in america I hope she burns”
“May the coming nuclear strikes hit the big blue cities.”
“Enjoy your trip to the concentration camp and don’t ask for my help, I voted for the American.”
About Californians: “I don’t want to sound crazy, but why does it seem like they need to be contained or eradicated to control their disastrous spread.”
About libertarians: “We might as well have shot them all to death.”
“Oh yeah, New York and New Jersey…have fun with the noreaster. I hope you all freeze. I hope the rats eat your children while they spread the plague to the dim-witted adults who for years have embraced left-wing politicians that have made your states the disasters they are.”
“I hope you’re regulars at soup kitchens because money troubles wrent your families apart.”
“I hope that Obama gets cancer.”
Ah yes, these are the good folks. Now, I get that not everyone on The Blaze acts this way, but every discussion thread I went to on this site included multiple comments either threatening violence or wishing suffering and a slow death to those with opposing political views. And these are the people I’m supposed to go to for Christian love…?
