Glenn Beck Worried Other Left-Wing Nuts Like Loughner May Kill Palin
Dangerous left-wing activists such as Jared Laughner are trying to murder all of our Republican officials, such as Gabrielle Giffords and Sarah Palin, according to Glenn Beck. You can find his call against violence on his website, conveniently located next to the publicity photo of him brandishing a handgun of his own.
The real tragedy of all of this is that people are being mean to Sarah Palin, the real victim of this whole shooting thing, as Pareene notes. You should never blame the victim, but Glenn Beck read a letter to her telling her to stay strong:
"Sarah, as you know, peace is always the answer. I know you're feeling the same heat -- if not much more -- on this.
I want you to know you have my support. But please look into protection for your family. An attempt on you could bring the republic down.
Please, call Gavin de Becker in Los Angeles. He is the guy that protects me. They are, bar none, the best. There are nut jobs on all sides."
Yes, an attack on Palin could bring the republic down. This unemployed snowbilly grifter is literally the only thing holding this country together. We need her. Without that reality show about gunning down salmon in Alaska, we would be the next Rome.
We could write more about Glenn Beck trying to make Loughner out to be a leftist communist leftist communist leftist, and we could make fun of his dumb letter, but once again, a screenshot of his website and its publicity photos say more:
Or how about this one?
And there's this:
Palin supposedly responded with the following word-jumble: "I hate violence. I hate war. Our children will not have peace if politicos just capitalize on this to succeed in portraying anyone as inciting terror and violence. Thanks for all you do to send the message of truth and love and God as the answer."
Yep, these two genius gun-lovers are holding together the country with their bare hands. So how's that Mars exploration coming along? We may need to escape and colonize that planet in approximately five minutes. [Twitpic/Salon]
