Is this the time you're saying Glenn called Ron Paul and his supporters terrorists?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eg8M2JBIoqo
I didn't hear him say Ron Paul was a terrorist. Nor did he call his supporters terrorists. He took some issue with the Nov 5th date for the fund raising day in support of RP's campaign its coincidence with the commemoration of Guy Fawkes failed terrorist attack on Britain, stating that for some supporters it was more than mere coincidence. Some, not all, not most, some. Which is fair. Ron Paul blogs and support web sites and forum postings had a lot of graphics and images and phrases/slogans and overall ethos that did key off the whole V for Vendetta/Guy Fawkes/Revolutionary theme. Ron Paul himself never really fully engaged or acknowledged that contingent of his following, but he did dabble with it, eventually taking on the "Revolution" graphics/slogan in some of his campaign and event messaging and participating in some grassroots supporter events where the ethos was more prevalent.
None of that made Ron Paul or his supporters terrorists and Beck never said they were. Indeed, in this clip from his TV show that caused so much controversy, he acknowledged much of the truth that underpinned the Ron Paul phenomenon, namely that there was a growing segment of libertarians, free market, constitutionalist conservatives and liberals (at least those with a more libertarian bent) that had grown fed up with national politics as played between the democrats and republicans (and the greens?). Ron Paul's supporters were the great unwashed grassroots that were sick of making choices between evils, playing party politics, and were generally highly motivated, politically attuned, yet disaffected voters and citizens. This group coalesced around Ron Paul and his brand of strict constitutionalism, neo-isolationism, and libertarianism. The group had a fervent youth component and made an important mark on the 2007-2008 election cycle and quite possibly will continue to into the future. Glenn fully acknowledges this and even gives it praise and the Ron Paul campaign credit for tapping into it.
He wasn't calling Ron Paul or his many supporters terrorists. At worst he was concerned about some very small subset taking the revolutionary/guy fawkes-esque messaging and connotations a bit too far.
It's clear you have no like or patience for Glenn Beck. Such is your right, more power to you. I wonder, though, do you listen to any political talk radio or internet podcasts? If so which ones? I only ask because I'm curious and would be interested to listen myself.
