New Left Media at Glenn Beck’s rally

The very, very talented Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll were on the Mall on Saturday to interview some of the people who attended Glenn Beck’s rally. It’s scary:

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.

    I learned all I needed to know about christians after the Oklahoma bombing.

    Well if they are digging, so to speak, it means that entire generation and their hateful narrow views will pass to.
    Does this mean we should give Mickey D’s a pass for awhile to hasten things on.
    ‘Cause I’d be cool with that…

  3. FunMe says:

    I love that Bible verse.

    Sad that these people don’t practice it.

  4. FunMe says:

    What freaking boring people. And all white! Can we say clones?


  5. “I learned all I needed to know about Muslims on 9/11”

    Well there you go. The mindset of the 20ish percentile that we always wonder what the fuck is wrong with. They know all they need to and listen to nothing else except that which confirms the above.

  6. Dave of the Jungle says:

    Well, at least honor was restored in America.


  7. AnnieR says:

    I can feel your pain, and agree with your observations completely, for I too have one of those sisters.

  8. Zorba says:

    Heh. Yes, I think those are exactly the type of people Dorothy was talking about- basically, mean and ugly on the inside.

  9. PeteWa says:

    I don’t care if anyone is physically out of shape myself, but in the case of these Beckerheads, it’s similar to that Dorothy Parker quote:

    “Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone”

  10. Zorba says:

    Don’t know about the Social Security actuaries, but I bet the life and health insurance actuaries sure as hell do.

  11. samiinh says:

    Sadly, these people have vote.

  12. samiinh says:

    One has to wonder if the Social Security actuaries take this into consideration?

    I was having a brew the other day when a gentleman at the bar said, out loud, that the solution to the “Mex” problem could be solved with a little Auschwitz. I would have screamed or cried if I had been shocked but I am not shocked anymore at crazy or stupid.

  14. tootiredoftheright says:

    Anyone care to make a transcript or find one on the internet? I am afraid to listen to the audio in fear my brain will suffer a seizure from the stupidity coming out of my computer speakers.

  15. Zorba says:

    They most certainly don’t read, or think, or do what their own scriptures tell them to do.
    “Truly, I say to you: whenever you did this to these little ones who are my brothers and sisters, you did it to me. Then he will say to those on his left: Go, cursed people, out of my sight into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels! For I was hungry and you did not give me anything to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink; I was a stranger and you did not welcome me into your house; I was naked and you did not clothe me; I was sick and in prison and you did not visit me.”They are following the Gospel According to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Fox News.

  16. Zorba says:

    Too true. I don’t even care much about their physical sloth- they can do what the hell they want with their own bodies. It’s the intellectual sloth that concerns me, and that can be very dangerous for this country.

  17. NotTimothyGeithner says:

    “I also wonder if they’ve ever read the New Testament”

    They don’t read. I saw a bumber sticker the other day, “America Bless God,” with a flag sticker and a fish magnet. I don’t think the owner of that vehicle would have ever understood the idea of America being able to bless God is blasphemous. I almost wish there really was a jealous God who got pissed off by that shit.

  18. PeteWa says:

    their super sized corpulence is likely a symptom of their spiritual, intellectual and emotional lack of growth.

    they epitomize the sin of sloth on every level.

  19. Zorba says:

    I just wonder how many of these people consider themselves “good Christians.” Probably all of them, I’ll wager. I also wonder if they even know that Glenn Beck is a Mormon, and that the churches they attend do not consider Beck (or any Mormon) a Christian. I also wonder if they’ve ever read the New Testament and the words of “their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
    PS I also think that most of them better stop “super-sizing” at McDonald’s. OTOH, they’re all digging their graves prematurely with Big Macs, so maybe I shouldn’t complain.

  20. timncguy says:

    you could take each one of these people one at a time, show them the facts and proof of where and why the misinformation they have been fed is wrong and they still wouldn’t believe you. They would just claim the “facts” are not true. Trust me, I’ve tried it with my sister.

    Every person on this video was doing nothing other than regurgitating talking points they got from FOX, Rush and Beck. And, none of them could provide an explanation for their dearly held “beliefs”. They believe it because they want to believe it. Nothing will change their minds.

  21. Rush must be so jealous of all the attention Glenny Boy is getting

  22. “Beckerhead” lol

  23. PeteWa says:

    Beckerheads: there is nothing honorable about being mentally and physically unfit, there is nothing honorable about whining about problems you don’t understand. there is nothing honorable about throwing around thinly veiled racism. there is nothing honorable about letting a con man fleece you with obvious fake tears.

  24. Dave of the Jungle says:

    Just like, ya know, what’s go’n on, ya know, like make it like what it used to be, ya know…

  25. leathersmith says:

    The same white fat lard-butts who will certainly attest Jesus Loves Them

    Marching on DC usually does not include camp chairs with matching ottomans

  26. abq queer says:

    Just sent this video to my friends in Europe who don’t understand the term “white trash”.

    Let’s check the list: Ignorant, usually overweight, white, inarticulate, full of misinformation, and not terribly attractive.
