LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

mail-box-full-colorDear Sir:

I have spent years reading Paul Jackson’s column (“Thunder on the Right”) and there have been times I’ve agreed with him, and times I think he’s missed the mark, but after his column in the August Ojo del Lago, I’m beginning to think he’s just lost his marbles.

Glenn Beck? Impeccable research? Please! This is the man who said in a broadcast interview that President Obama has a “deep seated hatred for white people.” He accuses President Obama of being a racist—an accusation so outlandish that even conservative Joe Scarborough (“Morning Joe”-MSNBC) said that Beck was “bad for conservatism.”

Glenn Beck, who compares the Peace Corps to the Nazi SS? Glenn Beck who has called Obama a Socialist, a Nazi, a Marxist, a Czar, and our government an oligarchy? Well, make up your mind! Which is it?

Glenn Beck? Who says Obama chooses to use his name “Barack” because he wants to identify with his Kenya-born father. He was named after his father. It is his name! He uses it because it is his name!

Glenn Beck who has been called the “Fear-Monger-In-Chief” because he rants and raves and takes advantage of peoples insecurities and fears. Beck creates an intersection between mainstream and extreme. The Anti-Defamation League has stated that Beck is “the most important mainstream media figure who has repeatedly helped to stoke the fires of anti-government anger…” and “…have made a habit of demonizing President Obama and promoting conspiracy theories about his administration.”

Even Bill Nye, the Science Guy, has had to take on Beck about all Beck’s misinformation about global warming!

But my absolute favorite is Glenn Beck’s July 8 tirade about the Robert Byrd retrospectives on TV when he says “Why wasn’t there any video footage of Senator Robert Byrd’s filibuster in 1964 against the Civil Rights Act? Why wasn’t it shown during the memorials?” And he went on to expound about it being a “conspiracy.”

No, Mr. Beck. Less than two minutes of actual research would have told you and your staff that there was no video footage, because motion film or video cameras were not allowed on the Senate floor until December of 1974.

Even the most erudite conservatives are giving Glenn Beck a wide birth; he is Icarus flying way too close to the sun, Paul. But the fact that you can’t recognize that makes me wonder if your elevator still goes to the top!
