he also discusses hypotheticals like "what would happen if we all stopped paying taxes?" and "what does it take before a people rise up and overthrow the govt?"

He's crossed that line more than once.

He isn't in the military. He's not subject to a charge of sedition.

Aren't Glen Beck and Bill'O just entertainers, like Steven Colbert only less funny?

Terrified Asexual Forcemeat: He isn't in the military. He's not subject to a charge of sedition.

Doing a litte more research, it seems possible for a non-military person to be accused of this, but the U.S. code seems to be more specific: "§ 2384. Seditious conspiracy: If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both."

His comments don't seem to be equal to the definition above. He's just a regular douche, not a seditious one..

They published the third -- count it, three -- the third op-ed in the New York Times blaming Bill O'Reilly and me, or Fox News in general, of spreading hate and inspiring people like the killer of Dr. Killer, uh, Tiller, in Kansas.
Oh why would anyone think that? Douchebag.

Cause I've never heard him say Tiller without saying "killer" before it.

From the East Coast to the "Left Coast," America seems to be moving further and further from its founders' vision and government. ...

And I suppose the little tarnished tin god Dumbya did the opposite, right? Illegal wiretaps, sneak and peek, domestic spying, wars based on lies.....Are THESE part of "its founders' vision and government?"

oh hey, it's missing the point, changing the subject and assuming that everyone who brings up "the founders' vision" is in favor of what GWB did!

The US includes the bottom 50% most of the time. Reality shows prove that.

You know a guy is effective if he's hammered here on Fark like this. I don't listen to him that much but maybe I should increase his air-time.

Makh: Aren't Glen Beck and Bill'O just entertainers, like Steven Colbert only less funny?

Yes. Imagine how you would mock people for taking Stephen Colbert to be news. This is the same deal. They are only entertainment shows. Not comedy shows, or at least not clever comedy shows, but editorial shows nonetheless. Mistaking them for news, or anything they say as some kind of imperative, is the same idiocy in the audience as someone trolled by Colbert.

Oh, please. They only fall back on the "I'm an entertainer" schtick when they get called out on the crap they spew. Which is pretty much daily...even hourly by now. The difference between them and Colbert is that they believe the crap they spew. They'd have to, or else they'd go batshiat insane themselves.

This is what has happened to the party of Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Dwight Eisenhower? The people who garner the most respect among the party faithful are no longer the party's policymakers. The respect is reserved for the party's most vociferous pundits. The Republican party has been devoured by its own cheering section.

Healthy political discourse does not involve preaching to the converted. It involves winning over people with whom you have disagreements. It involves the building of consensus, not political trench warfare.

If you do not wish the Democrats who hold the political majority to run absolutely wild, then start behaving like a party comprised of the self-governed. This country sorely requires a dutiful opposition that is reasoned, thoughtful, persuasive, and wise.

Napoleon Bonaparte once said "Never interrupt your enemy while he is making a mistake."

Republicans are not my enemies. They are my countrymen.

If you wish to continue screaming about petty minutiae, and throw your lot in with a man who advocates secession, I plead with you to reconsider, as a citizen of a former Confederate state.

That. way. lies. folly.

Terrified Asexual Forcemeat: He isn't in the military. He's not subject to a charge of sedition.

Yes, he is. The Smith Act applies to civilians, though since the Supreme Court limited its interpretation nobody has been charged under it (prior to that ruling, hundreds of Communist Party members were convicted). Basically the Supreme Court ruled that a person would need to actually encourage people to take up arms against the government, not simply preach the idea that the government should be overthrown.

One woman, a VA employee who wrote a scathing letter about government leaders, was investigated for sedition in 2005, but charges were dropped.

davidphogan: Cause I've never heard him say Tiller without saying "killer" before it.

I think a man who punctures the heads of babies and suctions their brains out is a mass murderer. He was also paid to murder so he was a contract killer. Exactly how many innocent lives does one have to kill to be called a killer? If you kill one person you go to prison. Abortion doctors kill thousands and people like you treat them like saints or something. That's some of the most twisted, sick thinking I've ever seen.

I hate Beck but he's right that Tiller was a mass murderer. The man who killed him saved the lives of many children.
