I believe in state's rights also, but that Beck character is just too much.

Does this mean he deplores Bush v Gore?

Based on the order he started yanking the stars off, and where he plucked Alaska from, and the locations of the absent California and Delaware stars, one can determine that the stars are ordered based on entry into the Union, like this:

1 6 11
2 7 12
3 8 13
4 9 14
5 10 15 etc...

The fact that he couldn't find Tennessee kind of highlights his woeful ignorance.

States Right = GOP whackadoo shorthand for institutionalized racism & theocracy.

You know who else argued for states' rights?

Are you suggesting that Beck dress up in women's clothing and run away from the Army?

Reports of Davis wearing women's clothing were fabricated rumors, garbage passed off as news by people like Beck.

It's not defacing the flag when conservative wingnuts do it.

It's a good thing we have SCOTUS *cough*Dred Scott v. Sandford*cough* to counter those nasty state's rights folks.

Shouldn't the new-and-improved-not-defacing-at-all flag have only one stripe?

Fair 'nuf, but you're OK with him running from the army, yes?

/Or at least an angry mob?

What would Fark be without a daily Glen Beck/Sarah Palin hate thread?
 
2009-07-27 09:53:41 AM  
Wait. So in his crazy little mind, having a governor sign some resolution that does nothing means asserting states rights? Jeez.

Nice to see the Real Americans talking point is still in the GOP. It hadn't gotten much use lately and I'm sure it resonates so well with the average American.
 
2009-07-27 10:11:33 AM  
Good lord, this "real America" shiat is getting annoying.

These clowns have one presidential election go against them and they become unhinged loons raving about the destruction of America...

I've never seen a bunch of "tough, rugged individuals" reduced to quivering, little crybabies overnight... perhaps they always were quivering little crybabies but their GOP binky slipped out during their 8 year nap.
 
2009-07-27 10:12:35 AM  
FTFA: The fact that so few states have these types of resolutions asserting their rights infuriated Beck, and to show his displeasure he went to a board with an American flag and swept off all the stars representing the states except for Alaska and Tennessee.

Beck warned that he wouldn't replace the stars until their representative states "decide to get serious about states' rights."



Lovin' it!

/Beck is great

States can't have rights.

Only individuals can.
 
2009-07-27 10:14:01 AM  
They actually had to set that flag board up special for Glenn, didn't they, 'cause most of the flags I've seen didn't have removable stars.

It is like the term "middle class" everyone thinks it means them.

My state is actually suing the federal government for interfering with our 10th amendment rights, Glenn. Can the Commonwealth get some love or does it not count if it's for teh homos?

I'm sure they're really concerned about your little flag display, Glenn...

Yea but you lose points for trying to charge MA sales tax for purchases made in NH.
 
2009-07-27 10:18:37 AM  
It's too late to care about the Constitution or State's Rights at this point. Face it, no one really cares about either subject. Just give the Fed's all the power over life and death and sit back and let them take care of everything for us from cradle to grave. That's where we're ultimately heading anyway.

I think you may be incorrect on that count, good sir.

That's a use tax, and it's constitutional and applied in most states. Of course, no one ever actually pays it.

But those are rights for homos, and Real Americans know that homos don't deserve rights. It's like they're subhuman, or something.
 
2009-07-27 10:24:57 AM  
New York was American enough to be the focus of attacks "against our entire country and way of life" on 9/11... Suddenly, it's not even deserving of a star.

Nice one, Glenn.
 
2009-07-27 10:26:29 AM  
I often wonder why Republicans and their voting base only start screaming about "State Rights" when it comes to their right to maintain new age Jim Crow laws restricting the rights of racial or sexual minorities.

I guess it's just one of those mysteries that will never be solved.

Gamer Grrrl: But those are rights for homos, and Real Americans know that homos don't deserve rights. It's like they're subhuman, or something.

But it's interesting nonetheless, when you hear conservatives bleat about states rights, and then get their panties in a wad when ONE state decides to let tey gheys get married, or that to stop people from carrying concealed weapons.

Well, Massachusetts is a no-brainer for clowns like Beck. We're "The Peoples Republic of Massachusetts" to those idiots, anyway... Your required to hate and condemn all things Massachusetts, or you're not a "Real American".

Well, I'm sure Beck's outrage will fuel the states into action.

He probably got the idea from Bill O. After all, he brought France to it's knees with his boycott.

Can we get some nice young men in clean white coats to come take Glen Beck away?
