Glenn Beck

Another Lesson From Glenn Beck: 'We're In A Perpetual State Of Tomorrowland'

Every few months, Glenn Beck goes off on an incoherent stream-of-consciousness monologue as his co-hosts and staff just sit there silently, having no idea what on earth he is talking about.

He did so once again during yesterday's morning meeting when he began hectoring his staff about the need "look at the future as the planet" as he explained the importance of constantly designing everything they do in light of the coming future because "we're in a perpetual state of Tomorrowland."

"Tomorrowland doesn't exist," Beck told his befuddled staff. "It's in your mind ... That's what the world's going to be like. Everything we do is going to look like Tomorrowland."

Somehow, that morphed into a lecture about how government and religion have "destroyed the trust we have with each other" but that is not something anyone should worry about because God exists and Silicon Valley is working to "free us faster than the government can enslave us."

"I'm putting my money on Silicon Valley, because it's the only place you can put your money," Beck said. "Put it on God and Silicon Valley. Period":

Beck: Bergdahl Release Just A Ploy By Obama ''To Get Everybody To Stop Talking About The VA'

When former CIA Director David Petraeus resigned from office back in 2012 following revelations that he had engaged in an extramarital affair, Glenn Beck knew that the entire thing had been orchestrated in order to discredit the military and distract from coverage of the attack on Benghazi.

Last year, when allegations broke that the IRS had inappropriately targeted conservative political organizations and that the Department of Justice had obtained phone records of Associated Press reporters and editors, Beck was positive that those were also attempts to draw attention away from Benghazi.

On his radio broadcast today, Beck switched things up a bit when it came to discussing the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl as he declared not that it was an effort to distract from Benghazi, but rather an effort by President Obama to distract the media from the VA scandal.

Obama "was starting to look very, very weak because of the VA," Beck said, and so "the only reason why this happened is because the President is trying to get the VA off of the front page of the newspapers. That's all he's doing. He's just trying to get everybody to stop talking about the VA":

Beck: It Is Becoming A Badge Of 'Eternal Dishonor' To Be An American Citizen

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck delivered a passionate monologue over the plight of Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who is facing execution for refusing to renounce her Christian faith and convert to Islam.

Beck is furious that the United States government is not doing enough to rescue Ibrahim, who is the wife of an American citizen as well as a new mother, declaring that this nation has gone "so dead inside" that it is now becoming "a badge of global and possibly eternal dishonor" to be an American citizen.

"What is it that you believe in?" Beck challenged his audience, telling them that they had better figure it out because the days of being beaten and locked in prison are already upon them.

"If you don't feel it yet, you will very soon," he said. "You're going to be thrown up against the wall and thrown up against the wall and thrown up against the wall, you might even get a billy club to the head, they might open up a fire hose on ya. If you're lucky they'll sic the dogs on ya. You might find yourself going into a camp, you might find yourself chained to a floor, you might find yourself being told 'you must do this, you must say these things or not say these things and we'll just leave you alone.' And if you think I'm crazy, read the newspaper. It's happening already":

Paranoia-Rama: End Of The First Amendment, Liberals Promoting Child Rape, Gay Marriage To Blame For Shooting

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

As the Radical Right continues its never-ending quest to stoop to new lows, this week conservative activists and Republican politicians claimed that progressives are sanctioning rape, planning to scrap the First Amendment and causing mass shootings by supporting marriage equality.

5) First Amendment About To Be Repealed

It seems that Ted Cruz isn’t even trying to pretend that he is anything more than a shameless con artist. The Texas senator told a summit of Religious Right pastors this week that “Senate Democrats are going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment” as part of their plan to “muzzle” pastors who “speak the truth.”

Cruz’s audience gasped in surprise at this bombshell announcement. It seems they hadn’t heard of this diabolical plan before – perhaps because it doesn’t exist.

It turns out that Cruz was referring to a proposed constitutional amendment that would overturn the 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United and related decisions such as this year’s McCutcheon ruling. The amendment seeks to restore to Congress and state legislatures the authority to reduce the role of unchecked and often undisclosed campaign donations from corporations and wealthy individuals.

But Cruz blatantly misrepresented these efforts to claim that Senate leaders are “repealing the First Amendment” because they want to quash the church and “don’t like it when the citizenry in their community has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done.”

4) Immigration Reform All About Hating America

Rush Limbaugh has a new theory that he hopes will incite conservative opposition to immigration reform: Democrats support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants because they hate America, hope to demonize the country and “undermine, sabotage if you will, elements of this nation’s founding.”

3. Liberals Want To Rape Your Kids

“Dr. Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt has a history of sending out insanely anti-LGBT screeds to members of his Religious Right group, Pray In Jesus Name, and this week no was no different.

Klingenschmitt, a Republican candidate for the Colorado House, warned members that liberals want to “rape” children by defending the rights of LGBT students: “‘Transgenders’ want your children. Liberals demand public access to rape your girls, at least visually in public bathrooms, or to expose themselves to your girls at school, without parental consent or protection of any kind.”

This latest rant should come as no surprise, as Klingenschmitt once accused a same-sex couple of looking at their infant with “lust” and speculated that gay people have “something unhman inside of them.”

2. Houston Promoting Violence Against Women

Despite the attempts of anti-LGBT activists  to derail an LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance in Houston, the city council approved the measure this week in an 11-6 vote.

Opponents of the nondiscrimination measure waged a nasty campaign linking the ordinance to Satanchild abuseassault and rape.

As always, conservatives pushed false claims about purported negative effects of nondiscrimination laws on religious freedom, with Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values warning that “these laws will be used as a weapon to actually run over people’s religious liberty rights” and Mike Huckabee suggesting that “this ordinance will take away your rights to live what you believe.”

1. Isla Vista Shooting: Blame Gay Marriage

It was only a matter of time until right-wing pundits blamed women’s rights advocates for the Isla Vista shooting spree by Elliot Rodger, who said he was driven by his hatred of women.

Media Matters points out that Fox News contributor Erick Erickson connected Rodger’s actions to the purported “war on masculinity” and gender equality, while another network commentator accused women tweeting under the #YesAllWomen hashtag of “man-hating.”

Glenn Beck similarly mocked women posting under #YesAllWomen for “man-bashing.”

But the Right also returned to one of their favorite targets: gay people.

Another Fox News guest, Dr. Robi Ludwig, alleged that Rodger was motivated by repressed “homosexual impulses.”

She wasn’t the only one to link the shooting to homosexuality: Ken Blackwell of the Family Research Council connected Rodger’s massacre to gay marriage. Blackwell, a former Ohio secretary of state and GOP gubernatorial candidate, also serves on the board of the National Rifle Association.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/29/14

  • Glenn Beck, David Barton, Michelle Malkin and other anti-Common Core activists will participate in a live event that will air in movie theaters throughout the country this summer called "We Will Not Conform."
  • Speaking of Beck, he has spent all week blaming Elliot Rodger's murder spree on video games, so logically he'll blame the murder of this two year-old girl on the Bible, right?
  • Predictably, David and Jason Benham have now become full-fledged Religious Right stars and have been given a speaking slot at Ralph Reed's upcoming Faith and Freedom Coalition conference.
  • Mat Staver reiterates his demand that Congress impeach President Obama: "Our Constitution and precious liberties are under full-scale assault by Barack Obama and his leftist administration. Patriotic Americans must refuse to stand silently by while leftists take our nation apart, plank by plank We MUST perform our duty as Americans to free ourselves of this tyranny."
  • Finally, Tea Party Nation has a message for the GOP: "America is waiting for you to prove you are patriots, not eunuchs."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/28/14

  • Mike Huckabee will not be speaking at the North Carolina Republican Party's convention next month because organizers could not come up with the $15,000 speaking fee he charges.
  • Matt Moore wants to make it clear that he really, truly, genuinely loves gays before telling them they are bound for Hell.
  • Bryan Fischer continues to insist that the Bible prohibits slavery and requires that those who practice it are to be put to death.  Someone should ask him if that means that he believes Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and other slave-owning Founding Fathers should have been punished accordingly.
  • The WNBA is marketing itself to LGBT fans and Peter LaBarbera is not happy: "I think that the sad thing here is there are a lot of Christian women who like the WNBA. They play basketball, they want to go to games, but now [if they continue to do that] they will be effectively subsidizing an organization which is rewarding sin."
  • Finally, this one line perfectly sums up Glenn Beck's entire worldview: "I don’t know how to make anything make sense."

Glenn Beck Blames White House Outing Of CIA Station Chief On Muslim Brotherhood

Over the Memorial Day weekend, President Obama made a surprise trip to Afghanistan and when the White House released a list of those who attended a military briefing with him, it mistakenly included the name of the CIA's top intelligence official in the country.

To Glenn Beck and his staff, this was no accident but rather an intentional effort "to get Americans killed" as a result of the fact that Muslim Brotherhood operatives have infiltrated every level of government.

"Muslim Brotherhood in the White House," Beck told his staff during yesterday's morning staff meeting. "There is Muslim Brotherhood in the White House, there is Muslim Brotherhood in the Department of Homeland Security, there is Muslim Brotherhood in the Pentagon. That's how this happens":

Beck: #YesAllWomen Is Nothing But 'Good Old Fashioned Man-Bashing'

In the wake of the murder spree carried out by Elliot Rodger, driven by his deeply and viciously misogynistic views, a #YesAllWomen hashtag was started on Twitter to highlight the fact that society largely turns a blind eye to the fact that women experience various forms of harassment, threats, and discrimination on a regular basis.

Glenn Beck, shockingly, was not particularly moved by the effort as he mockingly read some of the tweets on his television program last night and called it nothing more than "a chance for some good, old fashioned man-bashing":

Glenn Beck Reads Elliot Rodger's Manifesto: 'That Is Almost An Exact Quote From Teddy Roosevelt'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck weighed in on the murder spree carried out by Elliot Rodger last week though which he vowed to "punish all females for the crime of depriving me of sex.”

As usual, Beck placed the blame squarely on Hollywood and video games ... and progressives like Teddy Roosevelt.

Reading portions of Rodger's "manifesto" in which he declared that women "should not have the right to choose who to mate and breed with" and should all be placed in concentration camps, Beck proclaimed that "that is almost an exact quote from Teddy Roosevelt."

"It's all the progressives, communists, fascists," Beck said. "They're the ones who talk like this ... No small government person talks like this, no constitutionalist talks like this."

After co-host Pat Gray reminded Beck that it was the progressives who actually locked Americans up in concentration camps before, Beck declared that it was no coincidence that Rodger's father was involved with the film "Divergent," which is "a story about concentration camps":

For the record, Rodger's father had nothing to do with "Divergent"; he was actually second unit director on "The Hunger Games," which had nothing to do with concentration camps.

Glenn Beck Assures His Audience The Tea Party Was Not Involved In The Cochran Trespassing Incident

A few days ago, a conservative blogger in Mississippi named Clayton Kelly was arrested "after allegedly trespassing at the nursing home where Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran's wife lives and posting a picture of the Republican's spouse online without permission."

Kelly was apparently a supporter of Chris McDaniel, who is running against Cochran in the upcoming Republican primary and today, Glenn Beck invited McDaniel onto his radio program to discuss his race, during which Beck fumed that the media was falsely claiming that the Tea Party was involved in this episode.

From Beck's perspective, Kelly could not be a Tea Party member at all because his blog contained various posts attacking Beck and echoing the conspiracy theories promoted by Alex Jones.

"That was not the Tea Party," Beck said about the incident, "but the mainstream media will make it look like the Tea Party":

Interestingly, just a few hours after that very discussion, two more men were arrested in connection with this incident, one of whom is reportedly the vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party:

Two more men were arrested in connection with the video of Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-Miss.) wife, allegedly made by an apparent supporter of his primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel.

According to The Courier-Ledger, attorney Mark Mayfield, a vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party and an officer with the Central Mississippi Tea Party, and is reportedly close with McDaniel staff, was arrested Thursday by the Madison Police Department in connection with the case.

Glenn Beck Lashes Out At Those Attacking Liberty U For Allowing Him To Speak

Last month, Glenn Beck was invited to deliver a Convocation message at Liberty University where, in addition to delivering a prophetic message that God was coming to settle scores, he also preached Mormon theology, which did not sit well with certain Religious Right activists, such as Janet Mefferd.

On his radio broadcast today, Beck lashed out at "people who claim to be followers of Christ" in "the so-called Christian Right" who are attacking Liberty U for allowing him to speak, saying that they are progressives and "there is no difference between you and the people who are trying to run other people out of the square."

"You think you're standing for something," Beck said, "when indeed you're standing for hate and bigotry":

Once Again, Glenn Beck Falsely Claims Our Founding Documents Came Out Of The Book Of Deuteronomy

The most infuriating thing about watching Glenn Beck's radio and television programs for four hours every day is listening to him constantly assert that The Blaze "is the only network dedicated to the truth" while he personally spews lies and misinformation over its airwaves day after day.

The worst part is that Beck constantly repeats lies on the air well after his claims have been debunked, as he did on Friday when he falsely asserted once again that  "thirty percent of everything in our founding documents comes from one book, the Book of Deuteronomy":

As Chris Rodda explained back in 2010 when David Barton first made this claim on Beck's program, this false statement is based on a 1984 study by a University of Houston professor who found that, among the documents published during the founding era, the Bible was the most frequently cited source, but that was largely because "most of these citations come from sermons reprinted as pamphlets; hundreds of sermons were reprinted during the era, amounting to at least 10% of all pamphlets published."

As Barton said back in 2010, 34% of the identifiable quotes from the thousands of document that were published during the founding era came from the Bible and Deuteronomy was the most frequently cited book among those quotes.

But Beck utterly misrepresents this time and again in order to claim that a one-third of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence came directly out of the Book of Deuteronomy.

It is entirely untrue, but Beck continues to repeat it over and over again while simultaneously portraying himself as a paragon of truth, honesty, and integrity.

In fact, later in this very same segment, Beck vowed to "always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday."

Apparently, that vow does not apply during the hours when he is broadcasting.

Paranoia-Rama: 'Dr. Karl Rove,' Beyoncé's Demons & Your Daily Distraction From Benghazi

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

While you may have been busy reading about the rally to overthrow the Obama administration, the right-wing conspiracy machine was in fine fashion this week:

5. Nigerian Kidnappings Are Just A Distraction From Benghazi

Allen West, who once was actually an elected member of Congress, thinks all the attention to Boko Haram’s kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls is a bit “fishy.” Why? Benghazi, obviously: “Are we witnessing an Obama ‘Wag the Dog’ moment with Boko Haram in Nigeria? I say yes. Consider all the scandals facing the Obama administration, especially Benghazi and the Select Committee.”

The Republican politician and Fox News contributor previously thought the controversy surrounding Don Sterling’s racist remarks was also ginned up to distract from the 2012 Benghazi attack.

Erik Rush, a columnist for WorldNetDaily, went one step farther and alleged that Obama is “ideologically (and perhaps covertly) supporting” Boko Haram’s actions in order to distract the public and the media from Benghazi.

4. Alex Jones Is On The Case

After Rep. Tim Murphy, a Republican from Pennsylvania, introduced a bill that sought to reform the way the federal government addresses mental health services, Alex Jones’ website InfoWars dubbed it a “diabolical legislative package.” InfoWars pundit Jon Rappoport said that the legislation would require almost all children to take “psychiatric meds.”

If it’s fully implemented, you’ll witness a sea-change in society, in the coming decade. Diagnoses of mental disorders and consequent drugging, already widely in effect, will become as common and ordinary as people eating at fast food restaurants.

And the population will eventually forget things were ever different.

“Hey, can I borrow your Valproate? My son took my bottle because he ran out.”

Ultimately, Rappoport believes the bill will give the federal government “a monopoly of the mind.”

3. Karl Rove Is Just Asking The Question: Does Hillary Clinton Have Brain Damage?

While many conservative activists claimed Hillary Clinton faked a concussion to get out of congressional testimony over Benghazi attack, now Karl Rove has reportedly suggested that the former Secretary of State has brain damage.

While Rove denied making the reported comments… he demanded that the media ask questions about Clinton’s health anyway – and if they don’t get the answers they like, then it’s probably a conspiracy.

Of course, “Bush’s Brain” has quite a history of spreading rumors that his political opponents have mental health issues. Who knew that Rove had the medical qualifications to talk about such issues? And if you don’t take his baseless accusations seriously, then you are just a biased liberal journalist!

2. Is Beyoncé Possessed By Demons?

Not willing to wait for “Dr. Rove’s” diagnosis, Religious Right radio host Kevin Swanson forged ahead and asked if Beyoncé Knowles is possessed by demons.

Swanson wouldn’t be the first person to allege that the musician is possessed, as American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer made a similar charge back in January.

1. Glenn Beck vs. The World

Yesterday Glenn Beck explained the reason the Obama administration has all but ignored him since he left Fox News: Because he is a modern-day Martin Luther King Jr. And Dietrich Bonhoeffer. And Nelson Mandela. And Obi Wan.

Glenn Beck Has 'The Smartest Audience ... Ever In Television'

Over the last several weeks, Glenn Beck's studio in Texas has been undergoing renovations all while Beck continues his personal transformation into the self-proclaimed prophet of a doomsday cult, which has resulted in more and more of his nightly television program featuring conversations about God while consisting of footage shot during his morning staff meetings, most of which amounts to little more than the staff discussing the same topics that Beck and his co-hosts discussed on the radio show earlier in the day.

Apparently, this new God-focused and largely redundant format is not sitting particularly well with a number of Blaze subscribers who have been writing to the network wanting to know just what is going on, resulting in Beck dedicating the opening of his show last night to addressing the criticisms that have been flooding in from viewers.

In typically cryptic Beck fashion, he explained to his viewers that both he and his network are undergoing massive renovations at the moment because God has huge miracles in store for them both. Unfortunately, God has not given Beck permission to talk about them just quite yet "but that's not crazy," he assured his audience.

But Beck knows that he doesn't necessarily need to explain every little thing to them, he told the viewers, because his audience is "the smartest audience ... ever in television."

Beck said that he knows that his audience will stand by him during this time of upheaval because his network is the only one "dedicated to the truth and changing the culture," which is why it has come under attack from "principalities that do not want us to succeed," by which he means demonic forces:

'Strike Me Down': Glenn Beck Is A Modern Day MLK/Bonhoeffer/Mandela/Obi Wan

Glenn Beck began his radio program today by discussing the incident in which a local Dallas TV host walked off of her show yesterday during a heated discussion over the appropriateness of ESPN showing Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

Beck said that he didn't want to see stuff like that on television, nor does he want to see straight couples making out either and overall he used the issue to decry the "sexualization of our culture" which culminated in him declaring that just as gay people say they are born that way, he was likewise "born a spiritual person" who is now being persecuted for refusing to be silent about his religious faith.

Declaring that he knows that God exists because last week he experienced a "full-fledged miracle," Beck declared that he will never be silent about it even if it costs him his life.

"Because I know God lives, you will have to imprison me," he proclaimed. "You want me to shut up? I won't shut up."

Somehow, that prompted Beck to speculate that the reason the Obama administration has pretty much ignored him since he left Fox News is because they know that he is a Martin Luther King/Dietrich Bonhoeffer/Nelson Mandela-like figure that they had better not screw with because he is willing to die for his beliefs.

"Imprison me," Beck said, looking directly into the camera, "go ahead, imprison me. I will not sit down, I will not shut up. I won't. I will not conform. I will not comply. Period."

"If I may quote Obi Wan," he concluded, "strike me down. Strike me down. I will become far more powerful than you can imagine":

David Benham Explains His Love For Gays By Claiming The Homosexual 'Agenda' Is Led By Satan

It has now been one week since we first wrote a post highlighting the anti-gay and anti-choice activism of David Benham, who was slated to host a reality TV show on HGTV with his twin brother Jason. After HGTV announced that it would not move forward with the brothers' planned reality show, the Benhams hit the conservative media circuit to claim they were the victims of a "smear campaign" filled with "complete lies,"  though neither the Benhams nor anyone else has actually bothered to explain how anything we originally reported about them was in any way false.

The bulk of the defense offered for the last week by David and Jason Benham of their past activism has been that they do not hate gay people but only hate "homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation,"which is pretty much the defense offered by most of the anti-gay bigots we monitor on this blog. David Benham previously alleged that the "homosexual agenda," along with abortion rights and Islam, is controlled by "demonic forces and agendas."

Last night, they took that talking point onto Glenn Beck's television program where they repeatedly asserted that they are not at war with gay people, but are rather engaged in a spiritual war against Satan and demonic forces that are out to silence Christianity.

"It's a spiritual fight," Jason Benham said. "From the beginning of time, it was God and there was the Devil and both of them use people for their own purposes." Jason then recalled how Jesus had rebuked Peter by declaring "get behind me, Satan!" in Mark 8 to demonstrate this, as David added that it is all part of Satan's efforts to suppress the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Later in the discussion, Jason added that they are not attacking "the homosexual community" because the real issue is "God versus the Devil."

"There is a small minority of people in this world, heterosexual and homosexual, that buy into the idea of this agenda that wants to silence people," he said.

David added that, as Christians, they are "called to restrain evil so that good may flourish" and that is the role they are trying to play in America by taking a stand against the "demonic agenda to suppress the truth":

Paranoia-Rama: Joe Biden's Concentration Camps, Comcast Sharia Law & DC Drone Attack

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

It seems conservatives will never stop linking the 2010 health care reform law to the Holocaust or prophesying the rise of Sharia law in the US, not that any of such issues will matter anyway after President Obama attacks Washington D.C. in a drone strike!

5. Obama Will Launch Drone Strike On DC

Operation American Spring is hoping to bring anywhere from 10 million to 30 million people to Washington D.C. next month for an event the group thinks will force President Obama out of office.

One Operation American Spring organizer, Terry Trussell, believes that President Obama takes the threat so seriously that he may launch a drone strike on the nation’s capital to “get rid of” the protesters.

4. National Mall ‘Shrine To Abortion’

Religious Right groups failed badly in their attempt to block House approval of the National Women’s History Museum, insisting that they would only support the museum if its backers appointed a right-wing board chair.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., one of two women to vote against approval, alleged that the museum would “enshrine the radical feminist movement that stands against the pro-life movement, the pro-family movement and the pro-traditional family movement” and build an “ideological shrine to abortion” on the National Mall.

Ironically, the museum actually profiles conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly … and Bachmann herself.

3. Obamacare Just Like The Holocaust

Nothing says “Holocaust” like signing up people for health insurance through market-based exchanges, at least according to Tennessee GOP state senator Stacey Campfield. “Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory [sic] sign ups for ‘train rides’ for Jews in the 40s,” the Republican lawmaker wrote on his blog.

Campfield eventually offered a non-apology in which he regretted that people simply aren’t smart enough to understand his point:

I regret that some people miss the point of my post. It was not to offend. It was to warn. To draw attention to Obamacare and the slippery slope that I see occurring in the lives of myself, my constituents, and the rest of the country with the continued taking of freedom by the federal government.

In no way was my post meant to diminish or detract from the pain, suffering and loss of human life that occurred during this dark time in human history. Instead the post was meant to draw attention to the loss of freedom that we are currently experiencing. I stand by my steadfast opposition to Obamacare.

2. Joe Biden, Concentration Camp Guard

It should come as no surprise that Republican lawmakers are linking Obamacare to the Holocaust, since conservative movement leaders like Glenn Beck frequently insist that Democratic leaders are just itching to put everybody in concentration camps.

Beck went on a rant this week about a White House Correspondents Dinner sketch in which Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, playing her character on “Veep,” joined Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi at a tattoo parlor. This of course prompted Beck to allude to the Holocaust: “Why are they getting tattoos?” Beck asked. “Don’t they know that they’re the ones that are going to be running the camps? They don’t get the tattoos, they give the tattoos.”

1. Comcast Practicing Sharia Law

Speaking of Beck, his favorite congressman Rep. Louie Gohmert did the talk show host’s bidding during a congressional hearing this week on the merger between Comcast and Time Warner.

There are many legitimate concerns about the potential merger, but the Texas Republican made himself a laughingstock when he dedicated his time to accusing Comcast of snubbing Beck’s network, The Blaze, in favor of Al Jazeera America, which he said wants “to get their Sharia law push into the United States.”

When a Comcast representative denied Gohmert’s accusations, Gohmert suggested the representative may have been be perjuring himself.

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/7/14

  • Glenn Beck says that he has never been as infatuated by a candidate as he is by Matt Bevin because "he is a remarkable, remarkable man."
  • Speaking of Beck, he thinks that House Speaker John Boehner selected Rep. Trey Gowdy to lead the Benghazi committee so that he can thrown him under the bus when the whole thing backfires.
  • The hatemongering, anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church continues to lose members.
  • John Freshwater, the right-wing public school science teacher who lost his job for teaching creationism, is taking his case to the Supreme Court.
  • Finally, Jim Garrow is fed up with "the divine right of black folks with big government checks."

Beck: 'We Are Just Begging To Be Destroyed'

As we have noted before, Glenn Beck seems to be incapable of understanding that not everything posted on The Huffington Post's website represents the views of The Huffington Post since he continues to attribute the views expressed in random blog posts published there by users to The Huffington Post itself.

Given that Beck's own The Blaze website has the exact same feature, you'd think that Beck would understand this simple fact, but you'd be wrong as he has spent the last few days railing against some random blog post published on The Huffington Post that argues that "adultery may be inevitable" and so it might be "time to change our views of marriage and adultery."

To Beck, this random blog post is further evidence that we are a society just begging to be destroyed by God.

"Good God Almighty," Beck said during his morning meeting, "are we a society begging to be destroyed! We are just begging to be destroyed. This is the recipe of destruction":

Beck: 'There's A War On God'

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck reacted to the news that the Supreme Court had upheld the practice of delivering sectarian prayers at government meetings by wondering how we, as a nation, had even gotten to the point where this was up for debate, warning that America is just one Supreme Court justice away from completely losing the right to pray in public.

"There's a war on God," Beck warned, telling his audience that when future generations look back on the United States and wonder where it all went wrong, they will point to the vote held during the 2012 Democratic National Convention on whether to reinsert a reference to God and to identify Jerusalem as the capital of Israel into the official platform as "the turning point where nobody listened."

"I know this," Beck said, "going to war with God usually doesn't work out too well":
