Geraldo O'Reilly and Beck went to the Yankee Angels game together last night. Douchebag trifecta

Glenn hit a new low today on his radio show.

He went into a whole conspiracy theory about how Obama is purposely keeping us in Iraq and Afghanistan(two wars he didn't want us to pull out of back in Nov) in order to fulfill a manifesto written by the Weather Underground. If we over extend our Miliatary we are one step closer to world communism, and then went on a tangent of how this is inlign with Black Liberation.

He says we're dealing with "pure evil".

And a very good one, I might add.

Speaking of which, why exactly are we there? We are not going to win this one. I know it, President Obama knows it, so why stay? Bin Lauden is either dead or a well hidden folk hero.

The answer to that question is complicated and may be answered differently depending on whether you talk to say Strongbow or Irvine. In any case it's best saved for one of the other threads on that topic.

However, just to head off Beck's logic. Let's say for a moment that this preposterous theory of his was true. Obama, in his nefarious effort to overextend and weaken the United States military and pave the way for World Communism, would have to have the support of virtually all of the top military leaders in the region including Petreaus. These leaders have been vocal supporters of staying the course and would like to be there long enough to "get the job done." They are NOT arguing "we need to leave" while Obama inexplicably insists on staying and ratcheting up the troop numbers. So they would definitely have to be part of the plot. However, most of these leaders were in place (and making the same arguments) before Obama even got into office. So either the plot would either have to have originated from within the military or Obama must have had far reaching power that went back well before he was elected that enabled him to secretly place his key allies in top military posts so that they would be ready to work with him after he orchestrated his own election to the presidency.

Sound absurd yet?

Thanks, didn't mean to go off topic. I have only been watching Glenn's show, for the past week. I don't agree with everything he says. Some of it is amusing, though. Like quoting Dr. Zeus. He must be a fan!

And yes that does sound absurd.

Would make for a great novel, though. Sorry for the back to back post. I am having some trouble with my computer.

Beck freaks out about Six Flags' "Muslim Day," compares it to having "Japanese Day" after Pearl Harbor | Media Matters for America

"At the very minimum this is one of the worst PR moves of all time. A Six Flags amusement park is having a 'Muslim Family Day' which if that's what they want to do, great! BUT they've decided to have the festivities on September 12th - of ALL days, THIS is the one they pick? What in the world were they thinking?"

Attacking Muslims Is In Vogue Again Among Conservatives [UPDATED]

Hint: They were probably thinking that a Sunday in September might be a nice time for Muslim families to enjoy themselves at an amusement park?

UPDATE: Actually, it's perfectly logical. A reader emailed me with a reminder that September 12 coincides with the final day of Eid ul-Fitr, a holiday that "marks the end of Ramadan." Eid begins in North America on September 10 this year.

Beck would later take to his radio show to "elaborate" on this daft position, saying, "I can't imagine that in 1948, they would have had 'Japanese Day' at the water park on December 8th."

UPDATE: Here's a key piece of background on Six Flags Muslim Family Day, sent in by a reader, Gabe Small, via email.

History of the Event:


This event was first held at Six Flags Great Adventure, NJ, in September 2000. The event was immediately a huge success. The tragic events of 9/11 that resulted in the loss of thousands of innocent lives, also affected this event directly. The chief organizer, Tariq Amanullah, who worked on the 96th floor of WTC, Tower 2, passed away. The team was unable to come together again till year 2004, when the event came back bigger than ever before.

So, to reiterate: Six Flags Muslim Family Day began in the year 2000, and its chief organizer DIED IN THE SEPTEMBER 11th ATTACKS.

what seems to be lost on Beck is that the anti-Japanese prejudice is one of the great shames of World War II.

I'm surprised he isn't advocating internment camps.
