Beck preaches laundered information for lemmings. These "movements" are the agendas of anti-democratic monopolists that pay well for their disinformation to reach a base demographic known for taking marching orders without reasonable dissent.
He said Obama's health care reform is actually about reparations. Reparations! You don't have to read too far into the subtext to see the racism being used as a not-so-clever ploy to incite this demographic to do the bidding of powers that shouldn't be.
What this is really about is Health Care. This isn't about being concerned that you, specifically, can't find a better source of information than Fox News. It's not about the right to free speech. Private interests can pull sponsorship for media institution's franchises if they've gone AWOL.
And it shouldn't take a major act of terrorism for Americans to find the common thread.
Maybe Glenn's warped political interest in health care could be extrapolated from his opinion on the families of 9-11 victims with this infamous quote from September 2005: "when I see a 9-11 victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, "Oh shut up! I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining. And we did our best for them."
Just imagine, in defense of the insurance industry/class warfare, what he might say to the upset family member of someone who has died because they were uninsured or under-covered: "Fox News Pundits did their best for you." haha
