Jon Stewart sentences Glenn Beck

… by uttering the perfectly true sentence concerning him: “The only difference real between Glenn Beck and Paul Revere is that, when Paul Revere told you the British were coming, they were, in fact, coming.”

Stewart, yesterday:

The only difference real between Glenn Beck and Paul Revere is that, when Paul Revere told you the British were coming, they were, in fact, coming.

Thoreau, in “Slavery in Massachusetts“:

Among human beings, the judge whose words seal the fate of a man furthest into eternity is not he who merely pronounces the verdict of the law, but he, whoever he may be, who, from a love of truth, and unprejudiced by any custom or enactment of men, utters a true opinion or sentence concerning him. He it is that sentences him.

  1. When I was a kid I lived in Utah, and the Boy Scouts was taken over by Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS Church). This, so called religion, practices underage polygamy, they send the boys off on missions to divide the underage sisters among the dirty old men of the clan. Now when these underage girls get pregnant, these same dirty old men, send them to the state to get their welfare checks . You should see some of the palace homes that are paid with welfare checks (not on just one of course). By the way this is the newest religion that was made right here in United States of America, I guess their also in AZ, CA, NM, TX, NV, CO, OK.

    Glenn Beck’s comments on Japan as being a sign from GOD is trash talk, kicking them when they are down, would he say the same if a terrible thing happened to himself or his family? When someone hides behind religion to do or say something we know is wrong we should stand up and point it out (right the Wrong).

    Someone should ask Glenn Beck if his demise was a sign from GOD or just stuff that happens.
