Aaaaawwww, poor Glenn Beck. He is upset that he is getting blamed because one of his followers committed a crime. I think I will call him a waaahhhmbulance!
Apparently he read news articles saying heinous Police Killer Richard Poplawski was a fan of his and now Beck is saying, "Don't blame me." To quote Beck, he said, "Blaming anyone else besides the shooter is like blaming a flight attendant after a terrorist takes down a plane. Giving passengers a safety talk doesn’t mean you are responsible for the terrorist actions." Beck says sure he opposes any ban on assault weapons or any laws that would impact the 2nd amendment. He also opposes many of President Obama's views but the 1st amendment supports his Freedom of Speech. He said, however, the 1st and 2nd amendment also includes an implied responsibility. That is, you cannot scream Fire in a theater if there is no Fire, and you cannot shoot people just because you have a gun. And when he talks about a Revolution, he is referencing civil disobedience similar to Martin Luther King or Ghandi's civil disobedience and NOT advocating violent acts.
In this age of economic woes, he asks his audience to keep an ear out for those in their communities who may be going wacko/violent and report them to the authorities.
While at first listen, this time, these comments sound logical, I have two issues with his comments:
1. Beck made himself popular by being an extremist, red-faced screamer/ranter with an extremist right wing agenda who riles up his extremist right wing audience/viewers. Proof of this can be seen in the comment section of this very youtube. They are angry at him for turning PC.
2. Beck is the Master at generalization accusations. Example: If one illegal immigrant commits one crime, Beck blames the crime on each of the 12M and often, on the entire Latino community. He uses extremist ANTI terms like "ethnocentric" for anyone that believes in Immigration Reform.
What is clear is, Glenn Beck is a madman. Now he is reaping what he has sown for so long.
I say it is about time!
