New Playbook: Van Jones admits progressives are manipulating the American public

Updated:

Glenn went into further detail on The Glenn Beck Program Tuesday night:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Original Story:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The progressives have a long history of using propaganda and manipulation in order to influence the public. When he was back on FOX News, Glenn would often reference Edward Bernays, a pioneer in propaganda and public relations who argued that manipulation of the masses was an “important element in democratic society.” Bernays served in Woodrow Wilson’s administration. Today, the manipulation continues. An article on The Blaze reveals the latest progressive handbook, The Little Blue Book: The Essential Guide to Thinking and Talking Democratic, which is now being heralded as a “game changer” for the progressive movement.

The Blaze explains:

Similar to Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” the fingerprints of Lakoff’s advice are seemingly on the framework of almost every political debate, whether the participants are aware of it or not.

For instance, it doesn’t matter that Republicans have been arguing that a baby is a baby, whether it is in the womb or not, for decades.  Today, you will rarely hear someone who is in favor of abortion refer to the baby as anything but a “fetus.”  They typically use the words “reproductive rights” or “a woman’s right to choose” to re-frame the debate from whether a baby is being killed to whether a woman has “reproductive rights,” never responding to the argument that a baby is involved.

Similarly, you can try to explain to a group of “Occupiers” why taxing the rich won’t help them land a job, but all you will likely leave with is an earful of how Wall Street is “greedy” and how people are being exploited.

Another one of Lakoff’s main “themes” is that conservatives embody, essentially, an abusive father household, and that leftists embody a welcoming one where both parents make decisions together.  Referencing a book from 1970, Lakoff reportedly writes that “the role of the mother [in the idealized conservative family] is to uphold the authority of the father.  If she does not, she may have to be disciplined as well.”

The book has been praised by Van Jones, George Soros, and the MoveOn.org founder Joan Blades. Jones even calls the author George Lakoff the “Jedi Master of language” for his ability to manipulate using words.

“What do Jedis have to do with language?  They manipulate people’s minds.  That’s exactly what they do.  They manipulate what other people think and say for their own benefit because they’re Jedis.  They know better,” Glenn said.

“Van Jones means what he wrote about this book.  This guy is great at manipulating the message.  He knows how to make people who would normally never agree with progressive policies vote for those progressive policies.  So who is the author of this book, George Lakoff?  He is an extraordinarily influential political progressive thinker,” Glenn said.

“You know how whenever Democrats lose an election, they invariably blame their poor messaging and never, ever the content of their policies?  Lakoff is the one that came up with that,” Glenn said.

In the book, Lakoff claims that progressives need to reclaim the word “liberty”, and as Glenn showed on radio people like Van Jones are already leading the charge.

Here are some Van Jones quotes showing Lakoff’s theories in practice:

VAN JONES:  Shouldn’t we have the right and the liberty to be energy producers and not be dictated to twelve times a year by energy companies that dictate how much we’re going to pay for energy, when we’re going to pay it, how many asthma inhalers we’re going to have as a consequence?  Shouldn’t we have the liberty as Americans to power this country in a new way?

VAN JONES:  If all you care about is individual economic liberty and you don’t give a hoot about justice, you get a different type of tyranny.  You get corporate tyranny.  No, no.  They say, “Well, Obama is a socialist, you see?  The government is trying to take over the economy.”  BS.  The corporations are trying to take over the government!  That’s what’s happening!

Glenn urged listeners to get informed, get activated, and to vote. 

“You cannot win the war of ideas if you don’t understand their tactics and you’re not committed to being able to fight those tactics with facts and finesse.  You can’t win if you’re not committed and activated because they are using Jedi mind tricks.  Admittedly so.

    This is the way the progressives spread their plague of ultimate evil and darkness onto the land: The manipulation and control of IDEALS and IMAGES.

    Most of us have come to understand and watch for the progressives prime means and methodology of nudge, shove and shoot in its forms of coersion, intimidation, manipulation and so forth. Yet it is at the core of gaining control of IDEAS, such as above with Van Jones declaring the need for justice and freedom from industrialists, and other times he speaks of sociall justice and liberty of the masses, and such.

    Look how they play on the ideals and images of America, our nation is of the idea of freedom, liberty and justice for all; yet that is what the progressives seek to manipulate into their insanity of social justice guaranteed by a domineering and all controlling government. They pass off the image of the government beign ‘there for you’ to ‘set you free.’

    In working these ideas and ideals; they seek control of them, thus in success, if we let them do so, from the top down and bottom up; remember that this war we are in with the progressives is more than one of material means, it is ultimately at the base of IDEALS and IMAGES, of PRINCIPLES, and BELIEFS. It is in the simplest context: FREEDOM  OR SERFDOM.

    Isn’t Jones charming?  I mean, really,  Good looking, cool, speaks well.  Just what the progressives love!  And did I mention – he’s black?  Man, the progressives got their groove on with this guy.  The problem is – they know we know.  Time to pull their plug.  Kick butts out of Washington, take down Soros 501C3 organizations (cloaked communism), tell radical islamists to take a hike out of our country, escorted by armed Americans that don’t take too well to women abusers and murderers of children. Then tell Europe, the middle east, and China to go suck eggs for about five years while we clean up our mess here at home.  Businesses would develop overnight – not funded by feds.  Employment would absolutely soar. Been in business 45 years and it’s very, very bad right now.

    Your addition to the quoted part of that is a baldfaced lie and you know it is. You are the biggest liar and charlatan on the face of this planet. Your insertion of, “but they don’t hold a candle to the wool I pull over your eyes, Glenn said.”, is not only despicable but it’s intentionally defamatory. You should be made an example of by Beck, and sued for everything you own – you’ve been doing this for three years and getting away with it while you do the same thing to other commenters. You are a fraud, liar, criminal and narcissist pathological liar.

    Hey, Captain, I agree that Victor should be sued to make an example of him and his lies but your statement about suing “for everything you own” is funny.  What makes you think he owns more than what his mommy gives him while living in their basement. He he owned anything, he would probably be working for a corporation rather than denigrating them.

    Yes, we have truly reached the time when men’s minds can be manipulated by a message that essentially and systemically whispers, “right is wrong…and…wrong is right”. It has been a long time in the making, this time around, to make useful idiots of all who hear that siren song.

    A concept that just a few years ago either had those who poo poo’d it claiming that it was just extremist conspiracy theory and those that considered it a possibility wondering just how it could be done.

    Now. Ask yourself. In what spirit does that presentation manifest itself? It’s been in man’s nature down through the ages, when he chooses and he walks in darkness.

    It is really quite base and fundamental and is a very old, poorly learned lesson.

    Rahm Emanuel mayor of Chicago was pontificating a little while ago asking where are peoples’ morals after another gang killing.  I think he only has to look at the liberal agenda.  Maybe he should ask Van Jones and he could come up with some “liberty” like word.

    It is easy to un-manipulate the little blue book, by comprehending the english language.For example a fetus in any animal (human) womb is a baby in the making. Therefore produce an un-manipulative little blue book alining it with their little blue book and put it on every conceivable media outlet. Its not difficult to right the meaning of the english language. Comprehend?

    Van Jones and his ilk are the stuff of REAL nightmares. How can these moronic talking fists believe that this stuff works?! They say that capitalism doesn’t work. Capitalism DOES work because it emphasizes individual liberty and a level playing field, NOT level outcomes.  I do not have the talents of any other person. How I use my intellect and my work ethic is the only metric that should exist for whether or not I can make it. I’m sick to death of these people who are literally horrified at the thought that I do not need the government to be able to succeed. In fact, if they would get the hell out of my way, I would be able to employ many more Americans.  Instead, I am told that my story is one of privilege, white domination over the other races and aggression. Their reasoning is that, even though not a single person in my family line had ever been educated through a college degree, even though my family were poor white farmers who had to rent land from wealthier landowners, because of the color of my skin, I have been given advantages that do not exist for those of color and none of my accomplishments are because of anything I have done, it is simply that I am more lucky (because of my skin color) than those around me.  Guess those twelve years of higher education and my family starving were just a figment of my imagination. To Van Jones, Obama is a hero for being a “community organizer” (translation= communist, leftist, progressive radical with aspirations of terrorism). They use that that stupid phrase, “working class” in reference to anyone who is a union member with a high functioning sense of entitlement. Apparently, only those who chose NOT to go to college or trade school “work”.  Does that mean that I don’t work when I practice my profession? Does that mean that anyone who doesn’t dig ditches is a “non-working class” member? The fact that I had to help feed my family as a child, that my brother and I have been able to help fund the educations and aspirations of the younger children in our family, to a liberal, is of no import. Only someone like the welfare queen we were subjected to night after night on the news a couple of years ago, who has 13 children, nearly all by different men, is truly deserving.  After all, she’s black, uneducated, and militantly unwilling to work, use birth control or provide for her children, therefore, she is deserving of praise, and entitled to free government help through direct payments for herself, her “husband” and her 13 illegitimate children. In our national parks, we post signs listing the penalties for feeding wildlife. We all understand that predators will always choose the easy meal over the chase and, that this practice will cause inevitable deadly interactions between humans and predators, ultimately resulting in the eradication of some species. Yet, progressives believe that human nature is different. They believe that raping anyone who provides income, employment and cash for the economy and redistributing what they consider to be ill gotten gains to those who are less fortunate is what we should do to save the masses.  They believe that their ideas have not been practiced in their purest forms and that all we need is to impose these ideas by force and eventually, society will see the need to sacrifice the needs of their own children in the pursuit of the greater good for all. The liberals sling words like, “Nazi” and “Hitler” and “genocide” at their opponents, apparently ignorant of the fact that it is THEIR ideas that most resemble the National Socialist Party and the Red Party thugs who murdered on the scale of tens of millions of their own people. Jesse Jackson and the Reverend Al Sharpton are the true racists. I am not talking about racism against whites, but rather, placing their own monetary lusts over the true needs of their people. What better way to keep someone black out of society than to insist that, somehow, because of the color of their skin, they couldn’t possibly make it on their own? Human nature is no different than that of the bears and wolves that respond to feeding by becoming dependent on humans and responding to the threat of having the feeding trough removed with acts of violence and predation. When I was in school, because of the color of my skin, regardless of the fact that my family was poor, and I was first in my class, I was ineligible for many grants and scholarships. Yet, the last place person in our class, who had been held back three times rather than fail him was provided housing, direct payments and food because of his race.  I’m a doctor.  HE is now a doctor; a doctor who would not be allowed to practice anywhere but the inner city free clinics.  Is it racist to discriminate against me? Not according to Van Jones.  But it is that kind of thinking that creates someone who should never be allowed to touch a human begin becoming the only practitioner available to the poor.  Yet, they still militantly defend that student’s right to receive funding and help, thus guaranteeing that he will do harm, probably MORTAL harm to the inner city residents he treats.  That is the legacy of those who deny human nature, including the positive side of human nature – altruism. They insist that money must be redistributed because those who have it will never help the poor. In this, they show their cultured, willful ignorance of the psychology of human nature, erring in both their underestimating the violent, predatory reaction of those who feel that they are owed something when the freebie is removed, but also, they deny the possibility of altruism, instead claiming that they are the true advocates of the underclass by punishing anyone who succeeds by the theft of what they have earned and redistributing it to those who have not earned, nor deserve, those assets. THAT is the true legacy of progressivism.

    Once again, snowleopard, you elegantly and succinctly describe the problem. I believe that if we do not co opt the liberal habit of changing meanings of words and phrases to the exact opposite of what was originally intended, it is our children who will suffer. Already they are subjected to a daily onslaught of Marxist propaganda and told that their parents are the problem, the enemy. It is in this that we face our greatest threat and danger to our society. When our children are trained to call good evil and evil good, we have lost the battle to an enemy that we didn’t even know had crept into the fold. While I believe that children do better learning how to deal with all aspects of our society through participation, (not cloistering them at home), we have to fight that battle on the home front even more vigorously than we do with the public. To do this, we have to be educated, well versed in fact, not platitudes. Liberalism and progressivism cannot stand on this basis as the platform is a series of veiled, true intentions masked as a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It means being available to our children, loving them enough to spend time with them and showing the example of, not the leftist radical plotting sedition, but the actions of the followers of Christ. Fact, staunch refusal to succumb, courage, honor and love…these are our most powerful weapons. Keep up the great commentary.  I always look forward to your thoughts.

    Say what you want about the progressives, but ask yourselves how much better was Bush? In two terms, he waged a war on an “invisible” enemy, costing Americans billions, and made many unpopular moves which America really didn’t need. On top, HE was the one who so vehemently suggested bailouts of the big financial giants. So, whether it’s Soros on the one hand or the big banks on the other, each is getting big bucks right from the same source. It is not the parties that need to be cleaned up, but the cancer which is Washington itself.

    Yet, ol’ Vic the Sanduskyman, Tiffanny is stuck in the archives of old forums trying to bully people into reading his vulgar and bugged ‘sharethisurl’ garbage dump of lies and propaganda.

    …And Beck is reeling in millions–of viewers, readers and cash!

    Vic, the Sanduskyman has a man crush on Beck and doesn’t know how to handle it. Wonder if he tried to meet Beck? I bet Vic called into his radio show and Beck blew him off!!! THAT would explain volumes why Vic, the Sanduskyman is all pissy and out of sorts!

    Beck blew him off and hung up on his call!

    No, VT, Beck is not the model for modern propaganda.
    [The] “propaganda model is a conceptual model in political economy advanced by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky that states how propaganda, including systemic biases, function in mass media” which was first postulated in their book “Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, 1988.”
    So you see, VT, it’s your old buddy Chomsky who is the modern model of propaganda, not Beck as you would like everyone to believe by your manipulation of his words and your lunatic ideas. In this way, YOU become a model for propaganda in your use of yellow journalism as promoted on your blog and in the Debunking Glenn Beck book that you use as your elementary primer for endlessly attempting to destroy Glenn Beck. In actuality all you manage to do is make yourself look like a fool, an idiot and a liar.
    In your desire to save the country “from media pundits and propaganda” all you have managed to do is promote propaganda and your desire to be a media pundit in your own right. You have repeatedly admonished those who criticize you as defaming the character of “Glenn Beck’s online critic”–a title you invented yourself to elevate your status from a minimal blogger to a mediocre critic…unsuccessfully. YOU have become the very thing you despise by linking your name with Beck’s.
    You said: “If you follow Beck, you’re being a tool of the tool of the corporations.” You follow Beck. You read and post comments on his website. You read books about him. You listen to his radio show, watched his TV show on CNN and FOX and shouted at the TV (you admitted this as the reason you started your blog). You have FOLLOWED Beck more than all the people you call Beckerheads combined. EVERY COMMENT YOU MAKE HAS A REFERENCE TO GLENN BECK IN IT SOMEWHERE. This makes YOU the biggest Beckerhead of all and foremost it makes YOU “a tool of the tool of corporations” by YOUR own definition.

    Now, lets see you walk THAT back and lie your way out of your own statements.

    It is funny how Van Jones disappeared when he was outed by Beck before. Now he is back saying whatever he pleases and no one is standing up to him. Since he is no longer in the Obama administration, (but probably still connected) he has become rebel raouser  of the first degree. Hopefully he has a small following.

    Since 1828, the year Andrew Jackson founded the Democratic Party, there is no way that any of their Democrat members can be involved in any election, of any size, without cheating in an effort to manipulate the election vote outcome!  This fact is very well known to the leaders of both political parties, so the Republicans make sure that the voting places in their districts are strickly run by the attendees in charge.  In the Democratic Party controlled precincts, there is extensive manipulation of the votes that are cast, so the Republican monitors are well selected for their ability to spot the most obvious cheaters and keep an eye on them.  They are well versed in the ability to report any illegal shennanigans to the proper authorities.  Will it be enough of an effort to make a difference in the coming 2012 election?  We will see.

    These same tactics are being used in our churches.  The PC(USA) General Assembly last week adopted several new social justice issues.

    and plans were adopted to update the Safe Child Policy in the PC(USA)  encouraging the use of discipline methods that do not include corporal punishment of children (ie spanking) 
     Also,  Pensions and Health care will cover same gender partners and reproductive health care (abortions) with no relief of conscience clause.   
    The PC(USA) believe men and women have the capacity to make responsible decisions regarding reproductive health care (abortions) but apparently not in disciplining their children.

    Mao had his little red book and Jones and Obama have their little blue book.  Amazing!  The land of the free and the brave has become the land of the manipulated and the scared.  We are afraid to take out country back out of fear of being labeled or arrested.  God help us, because the elected politicians will not.  In God we must trust because all other options are disappearing.  I never thought I would see the day when “progressives” would be viewed as “moderates”, laws (taxes) could be created without the approval of the people, and the supreme court would declare that a “penalty” for not purchasing a service is constitutional.  The founding fathers are spinning in their collective graves like a top.

    I would not blame Beck for that. I just wish they would ban this twerp again so he has to stay in the leftist sites. What is he going to do when they reject him too? Eventually even the proggies will get tired of his steering every thread to his bugsite and vendettas against Beck and every other human who isn’t crazy like him. You can bank on it.

    He claims that he works for a Fortune 500 corporation and even held the position of acting VP a couple of weeks ago. That has to rankle the Occupy Ithaca group he likes to hang out with if it’s true. Of course he is also a narcissist and a pathological liar, so you can pretty well bet he lies about his importance within the community.

Let me translate it to you: Beck is the biggest hypocrite of all.

    I like how Van Jones is directly quoted as calling energy companies dictators…just because they are asking us to pay our energy bills.  I don’t have to be a conservative to know that energy is not free, I just need a brain.  And cue the Bolshevik (which sounds like “bullshit if you say it while sneezing) rhetoric from 1905 about how you have to be a fool to believe that story about the carpenter from Nazareth.  That man Jesus means a lot to me, he has lifted me out of some dark times, so when people talk bad about Jesus I get offended.  The Leftists want a government that feels that it’s okay to call Christians fools just for being themselves.  The separation of church and state has now become a mission akin to the state eliminating the church.  As a Christian, I FEAR an Obama re-election, because I know that it will result in a lot of suffering on my part.  Why will I suffer?  Because I don’t think I will be able to hide who I am and what I believe in.  To every person out there that calls themselves a liberal, let me ask you something, do you actually want the people who disagree with you to live in fear to the point that they will agree with you just to save themselves?

    Most people cannot discern the difference of how you say something rather than it’s content.

    Obama:

    These (military) achievements are a testament to the courage, selflessness and teamwork of America’s Armed Forces. At a time when too many of our institutions have let us down, they exceed all expectations. They’re not consumed with personal ambition. They don’t obsess over their differences. They focus on the mission at hand. They work together.

    Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach.

    The Military is not a Constitutional Republic, but a Dictatorship. If you don’t follow orders you go to jail. This is the vision Obama sees - Caesar of America.

To think that he was conveying a vision of dictatorship is absurd, but typical for your ilk. It’s called biased assimilation, and you’re full of it.

    You nailed it: a propagandist pointing his finger at a framing expert (not unlike Frank Luntz in his own, more sophisticated way) and claiming he’s a “propagandist.” It’s totally absurd, and you’re right: Beck is “the biggest hypocrite of all.” 

    Unfortunately, his followers are ethically retarded, and don’t recognize hypocrisy when Beck slaps them across the face with it. While I was tracking Beck’s work on The Glenn Beck Review, he averaged 2 demonstrations of blatant hypocrisy per month.

    Propaganda:

    “information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely tohelp or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation,etc.”

    The single biggest point about this attack on Lakoff’s work by Beck is that Beck is a propagandist against Obama and against progressives and progressivism. About that, there is no doubt.

    To have Beck point his finger at ANYONE and claim him or her to be a propagandist is blatant hypocrisy. I’ve come to the conclusion that either Beck’s followers can’t see this about him because they just don’t want to (biased assimilation and extreme avoidance of cognitive dissonance) or they are just ethically retarded.

    United we stand; divided we will fall. No one is more divisive than Glenn Beck, race-baiting, fear-mongering, deceitful reactionary propagandist getting millions to vote against their own self-interest (and for plutocracy, a gov’t of, by and for the uber wealthy). BRILLIANT!

    1) Getting your panties in a bunch is MY expression. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  Thank you very much.

    2) Van Jones WAS a communist; now he is a progressive. People change. Beck used to be pro-choice, as was Romney (strongly pro-choice). 

    3) Obama’s name WAS Barry, and he’s not much of a progressive, say nothing of a “Marxist Socialist.” Only morons think that, morons who believe the utter nonsense spewed by deceitful propagandists like your hero, Mr. Beck.

    4) I don’t have wet dreams. I’m 56 for Christ’s sake. You’re not very bright, are you?

    5)  How can I back a myth? The Horses of the Apocalypse is a myth, probably a dream. I never even have mentioned it anywhere before this retort to your pathetic and delusional lie.

    6) I know the difference between a far right-wing propagandist and the President of the U.S. Why do you insist on writing utter nonsense? Because Beck spews utter nonsense, and you’re gullible and uninformed enough to believe his lies?

    7)  I am opposed to socialism. Got more feces to pull out of your rectum to throw at me?  (I’m positive that you’re just full of it.)

    8)  The Glenn Beck Review is not a bugsite. You’re lying (again).

    9) How am I a hypocrite?  When I point out that you’re a hypocrite, I use an example. When you call me one; it’s name calling.

    10) If anyone is acting like a troll here; it’s clearly you. I’m being rational; you’re pure emotion (hatred) and character assassin (I’m not Sanduskyman, but my lawyer would like to know where you live to serve you a subpoena.)

    Beck is a high school graduate; G. Lakoff is a brilliant professor and has a PhD. Beck is brilliant at getting other high school graduates and people who have never had one day of political science to misunderstand reality.

    My MO is pointing out Beck’s brilliant, sleazy and deceitful propaganda. That is why I started The Glenn Beck Review. I could not believe anyone could get away with lying as much as he does, and now I see a candidate for President lying as much as Beck does, if not more. Romney is counting on ignorance in the electorate. (It’s made Beck a rich man.)

    1. No, it isn’t your expression. You stole it from Sandie last summer and it’s a common saying for which you do not have rights of exclusivity.

    2. Van Jones is still a commie. Citing Romney and Beck does not change this fact. People do not change. They compromise, but they DO NOT CHANGE. Tell us another “Change YOU Can Believe In.”

    3. This is another one of your ad hominem attacks because you have no intelligent comeback or excuse for being a Socialist. Barry’s name IS Barry, as well as a few other documented aliases he has gone by. Beck is not my hero. He is YOUR obsession.

    4. I’m very bright. You’re in denial… and apparently impotent, by your own confession/admission.

    5. You are pathetically stupid and not very creative. That is why a career as a writer is not an option for you. You aren’t good at debate either, are you?

    6. You insist on writing utter nonsense because you don’t know the difference between fact and fiction, or between delusion and reality. You are not the sharpest tool in the shed, but you are a tool.

    7. That you have resorted to profanity and vulgarity indicates you lost that argument. You are a socialist by name, word and deed. You just won’t admit it. Same with Barry. Admitting it would destroy your platform of propaganda and lies.

    8. The Glenn Beck Review is a delusional yellow journalism ragsheet of smears and lies, a lame attempt toward relevance on your part. I’m not lying. It is my opinion based on what I have seen and read about. It’s trash! Clicking on that URinaL has caused several posters’ computers to crash.

    9. You clearly can’t talk your way out of the corner you painted yourself into with that hypocrisy rant of yours. Look it up in the dictionary. Your picture is there beside the definition. It’s not name calling when your lies, hypocrisies and double standards have been pointed out to you. You just deny them.

    10. You, rational? When Donkeys fly! Like I’m going to tell you where I live. So you can threaten me live and in person? You are off the charts delusional now.

    You are without a doubt the biggest Internet Troll Network idiot who ever posted on these sites. Lawyers don’t serve subpoenas, you jackass! That shows me just how stupid you are.

    You are the biggest moron on Earth if you think your tirades have any influence on anyone but weak minded liberal automaton sheep like you. Talk about delusional socialist narcissists – and here you are!

    I’ll bet we can tell where that yellow comes from…

  • CaptainAmerica

    You are the least convincing liar in the world. You are consumed with your Beck-mania, which makes you more of a Beckerhead than anyone else. Beck lives rent free in your otherwise empty skull.

    Think about that for a while…

  • CaptainAmerica

    You are too ignorant to know the difference between following a sleazy, ignorant but brilliant, reactionary propagandist, which you do better than anyone, and tracking a sleazy, ignorant but brilliant, reactionary propagandist to monitor your lies and expose YOU.

    You don’t understand how psychotic that kind of writing is or how revealing it is to the non-affected people in the world who are witnessing your next episode of out of control psychotic behavior, do you?

    Now that we have established who is the psycho here, (YOU), we can move forward while you sit in your basement in your wifebeater and tighty whities drooling on your self and feverishly pounding out another episode of your manifesto on that slimy, saliva soaked keyboard. You are one disgusting freak job, which is a complete waste of your supposedly superior intellect, Mister IQ less than 2.

    “I’m anti-social, anti-capital”

    Thank you for that admission, it’s not as if we didn’t all know that about you already.

    “your ignorance is showing and typical from people who can’t grasp my deceitful claims”.

    That confession was absolutely a gift! Perhaps you are making some progress with your therapist’s help…

  • CaptainAmerica

    You and your few allies are a joke. You are not accomplishing anything but revealing your own true nature as a liar and hypocrite, and it’s you guys that are the bastards. You remain blind to the truth while you are left behind, that’s okay by US – all the rest of humanity will have a laugh at your expense.

    Yep. His URinaL… that he shares….

    Isn’t that cute, two delusional twits having a conversation of sociopathic lunacy about Beck right here on his website. How absolutely pathetically moronic of you. You won’t influence anyone here, but you keep on doing what you two do best – make asses of yourselves. So far, it’s been a crashing bore but a smashing success if looking like a mentally deficient lunatic is your goal.

    If he only watched his show “once on CNN” then where does he get his material? Plagiarizing legitimate scholars or other rag sheet bloggers? He complained to CNN, too. Whoopity-do. Guess that one complaint was the reason Beck left for FOX–or so he thinks!!! Like CNN would listen to the likes of the Ithaca Village Idiot. ROTFL

    Better explain that Beck “living rent free” is NOT another one of Barry’s handouts to the ‘gimme’ club he, the Internet Troll Network’s spokeman, belongs to.

  • Anonymous

    He edited his post to “I’m anti-socialism anti-capitalism, so your ignorance is showing and typical from people who can’t grasp Beck’s deceitful claims.” Wonder how long it took him to figure out how stupid his pre-edited remark was?

    Nice to get those JING’s, huh?

  • CaptainAmerica

    Oh yeah – like BAZINGA! It’s another JING!

  • CaptainAmerica

    He hangs on every word of Beck and the only way he could do that is by subscribing to Beck’s network and the email newsletters.

    He is so stupid it hurts his grandma.

    The command structure is the core reason of cohesiveness in the Military.  So in fact he was talking of authoritarianism! Unfortunately for you, regardless of how you try to spin it… your mendacious comments cannot change Obama’s own allegory.

    My reasoning is quite sound. That’s why I defined propaganda first. If you think my reasoning is specious, spell it out. I have pointed out this hypocrisy on Beck’s part many times, but you seem blind to the propaganda that Beck is engaged in. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Victor-Tiffany/100001320367593 Victor Tiffany

    Thank you for making your last point: you’re just a sleazy, stupid character assassin. Period.

    I won’t deign to reply to you point by point since your final comment says all anyone needs to know about you: you’re just a reactionary, emotional scumbag and a hypocrite for claiming that I’m not rational.

    All of your 10 points are absurd, emotional, irrational, deceitful and quite childish. If anyone is conveying ignorance, it is you, over and over and over. In other words, SOS, DD.

    Your first comment is interesting though. Last summer. Who were you before you because the MF Grizzley that you’ve become?

    “People do not change.” Just how pathetic and stupid is that claim? Beyond all empirical evidence, something you obviously don’t give a crap about.

  • CaptainAmerica

    He’s all of that and so, so, so much more!

  • Anonymous

    As you are blind to the propaganda and lies that you write. Your reasoning is not sound, nor are your arguments. They lack the support of facts. Lying and crying won’t get you credibility.

  • CaptainAmerica

    You are the king of unsound reasoning – give us a break – you could start by smacking your computer around like you obviously would like to do to a number of people on this site and others who you battle with.

    Thump the PC – that will make all of this go away for you.

    Said the reactionary idiot ranting because he cannot refute any point I made in my comment. So what is this but rage writing and whining, ad hominem attacks because I proved what an ignorant asshole you are?

    You attack me with your usual and predictable profanity because you do not have the intelligence to respond in a civil manner and defend your own stupid comments. Your original comments are hardly without error, validity, maturity, sanity, calm or reason. Quite the contrary.

    You proved my point. You are a joke and you’re making a fool of yourself throwing a verbal temper tantrum because to don’t have a reply to make.

    You’re such a pathetic fool, Sanduskyman.

    Propaganda is created by means of personal biases, political aspirations, personal agendas and for gross mendacious purposes.
    The founding fathers having foreseen this problem created a system that would create “drag” or “gridlock” purposely. In this way forcing government representatives to reach a consensus. It’s a shame to see BOTH parties voting down party lines and should be an outrage to ALL citizens. However, most citizens do not have the time nor energy to dig the thru the mountain of codswallop fed to us each
    day.

    We would all like to think that every representative would vote with higher moral, ethical, and sound principals and for the greater good of the country.

    Now that being said… I cannot see any reason for you to aggrandize Beck as the great devil of propaganda. Actually I find it ridiculously stupid considering all the propaganda coming out of Washington on ALL sides… by none other than elected officials. I think your time would be better spent there!!

    I find most of your comments to be nothing more than a waste of time, full of contention and jejune without a purpose or reasonable conclusion other than to demonize Beck. (Isn’t that the same propaganda they you supposedly loathe?)

    It is the same propaganda he espouses and promotes.

    Yeah! He chews gum until all the flavor is gone, sticks it on the bedpost overnight, then picks it up the next morning, and puts it in his mouth to chew on some more.
