If by "conspiracy" he means "blindingly obvious to everyone but him", then sure.

if you are a conspiracy theorist, it isn't a conspiracy to label you as one.  though you are likely to think so.

What is it about Glenn Beck that makes anyone listen to him. There has to be some right wing pundit that isn't such an unlikable moron.

With this kind of recursiveness, it's entirely possible that Glenn might just disappear up his own asshole.

"The media has their own agenda; the media goes for it. And if the media has a story line it just writes it in. Currently the story line is: conspiracy theorist. Now why? Why would that be the agenda item now? Why is it a concentrated effort now to label me a conspiracy theorist?"

Is it wrong that I wait with baited breath for the day that Glenn Beck mouths off to the wrong person and gets the ever-loving SH*T beat out of him?

Yay! Glenn's back on Fark! It's been too longer, brother! The shelf-life on the jokes about what you did in 1990 have been refreshed!

Is it a conspiracy if sane people all observe the same factual event that can be proven?

Likability doesn't matter when it comes to right-wing authoritarians.  Even Michael Savage still has loyal followers.

The true conspiracists are the ones who mock, ridicule, scoff, and humiliate conspiracists.  Or something.

I can not make fun of Glenn Beck! Not mock nor deride him in any way.  The job of making fun of Glenn Beck has already been accomplished by a great master to such perfection that any attempt to mock Glenn would wither in comparison.  That master of mockery is Glenn Beck himself!  A applaud your skill and wit.  No one could ever make you look stupider than you do.

See also Mark Levin.  He has to be one of the most unlikable human beings on earth.  His voice is like nails on a chalk board.

People on long flights with nothing to do but grab something from the airport gift shop? On a plane is the only time I've witnessed someone reading Dan Brown. But he has movie deals and although banal, isn't as far as I know an ignorant douchebag.

Did Glenn Beck have to find a substitute for Palladium too?

It doesn't require a conspiracy for everyone to conclude Glenn Beck is a conspiracy buff.

Isn't life too short to sit (I assume often in your car on the way to or from work) to listen to hateful farks on the radio, calling women who use birth control whores and making vaguely and not so vaguely racist comments? I realize I post on fark but the decent people to asshole ratio is much more decent and I'm producing at the same time. Hence all thetypoes.

I've been saying the same thing derpy just said for a couple years now. I think there must be a neurochemical payoff to believing conspiracy theories, hidden knowledge, stuff like that. Or being in on a secret, or being one of the first to know something that's actually factual. It's fun and exciting.

This kind of makes sense from an evolutionary perspective, too -- if the world is harsher and more competitive than the one we're living in, knowing something the other tribe doesn't could give you and yours a big survival advantage. It's just when we're fat and happy and comfortable enough that we're not consumed with thoughts of basic survival 24/7, a lazy mind with too much free time turns to Illuminati and Bilderbergers and Grey Aliens and Saul Alinsky and Templars and shiat.

I don't understand how anyone can listen to him just on an auditory level. For some reason, right-wing pundits have the most unpleasant voices...and a haranguing way of lecturing at you speaking.
 
2013-05-29 03:02:05 PM  
I thought the consensus was that Mr. Beck doesn't actually believe all that stuff (of course, Poe's Law applies, clouding the issue).

You should listen to John Batchelor. That man's voice is soothing as hell. I suppose he's also a pretty liberal Republican and pretty farking bright so I suppose that alone makes him the exception rather than the rule
