(The Blaze)   Glenn Beck points the blame for the consulate attacks squarely where it belongs: on a secret government plot to end YouTube comments forever. "Through the looking glass" apparently means "completely tasteless fearmongering after a tragedy"   (theblaze.com) divider line 62

By the way, here is Youtube's policy on hate speech from before the attacks even happened:

Hateful Content

We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity). If you come across comments that contain hate speech on the site, please report this using our Help & Safety Tool. If you come across a video that contains hate speech, please use the flagging feature below the video to report this to the YouTube Team.

Not everything that is mean or insulting is Hate Speech. If someone has said something that has upset you, please read our tips on harassment and bullying.


So there is a government conspriacy to add something to the YouTube TOS that is already there? What?

Frankly, any administration that campaigned on a platform of ending all Youtube comments would have my vote forever.

Glenn Beck's MO: Take the craziest existing theory of any event, take it one crazy step further, and season it thoroughly with paranoia. If he's not doing it by design, he needs a straight jacket.

Guys, that's what the browser add-on Herp Derp is for.

It turns everything into GlennBeckaase and is a somewhat useful tool for the manipulation of the embodiment of the glennbeck principle.

Wait, wasn't Glenn Beck the guy that may have raped and murdered a girl in 1990?

I can't quite recall.
 
2012-09-18 03:40:54 PM  

shanrick: Who is Glenn Beck?


I think he was a porn star and friend of Rush Limbough, they apparently raped and murdered an 11 year old girl back in 1990 together, there by sealing their pact with the dark lord and insuring the Republican rise to power.

The whole reason you don't hear about Satanists, Satanic rapes and murder farms anymore is because the Republicans are suppressing it. Truly a vote for Obama is a vote for Jesus, for only through the Democrats can the power of the Satanic Republicans be defeated and Armageddon avoided. It is the liberals who are the meek and they will inherit the Earth.

Yes, the First Amendment should be protected. Yes, you have the right to make insulting videos of Muhammad without getting killed.
You also have the right to go to Compton, run up to the first brother you meet, and scream the N-word while pointing like the guy in Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and do this without being shot or beaten to a pulp.

Free Speech is a license to be outspoken and to criticize, even to mock, but it is also a license to be retarded.

Do you want to be retarded?

None of this matters anymore. I mean. Vote and all, cause it's important. But no, to answer your question, it doesn't even matter what the "it" you're talking about is. It doesn't matter.

Whatever the validity of Beck's comments, I was totally mesmerized by the neat and even writing on that chalkboard. I couldn't even really listen to him because I was so blown away by that handwriting. I'm assuming he was talking out of his ass like usual?

Glenn Beck, the name sounds familiar, I seem to recall hearing it mentioned some time ago, in the early 90's. I think he worked with Madonna on her Vogue album and then went on to set up a homeless women's shelter which was apparently shut down as there were mysterious disappearances.

Glenn Beck is obviously an idiot, but the administration has been disingenuous and outright duplicitous on the nature of these attacks. Maybe you can tolerate your president lying to you, but I can't, no matter what party he's from. His Middle East foreign policy is continuing to prove to be disastrous.

Continued insistence by the administration that the attacks were spontaneous when it's obvious that wasn't the case. The ignored warnings by Libyan security officials. The absurd insistence that these weren't terrorist attacks. I know Republicans think we're all morons, but it appears the Democrats do as well.

Nailed it. If politics are interesting or engaging for you, pay super close attention. Otherwise, you're just sending yourself to an early grave by being hyper focused on shiat like this.

Don't lose perspective, is the lesson of this year. Millions of people around the country are losing their collective shiat over TRULY trivial things. Frankly, most of them probably have bigger fish to fry. Like making sure they have the cash to pay for a new timing belt, or winterizing their lawnmower. Or maybe pulling together the last couple harvests and deciding what to do with all your veggies. Or hugging their kid.

/I'm pretty passionate about politics because I love history, and politics are an opportunity to watch history unfold in real time, which gives me better perspective when reading about Italy circa 1675.
