Quote of the Week


"We are, excuse this analogy but I feel like it's true, we're the young girl saying, 'No, no, help me!' and the government is Roman Polanski. In the end, I think we're all gonna be cowering in France."

-- Glenn Beck comparing Americans in the health care reform battle to a 13-year-old girl about to be raped

Seriously, you have to see this fucking insanity to truly appreciate it.

Ugh! He raped my ear with his words!

My favorite thing about that clip... well, two things.

1) He says, "America has spoken clearly, consistently. We don't want this." Followed immediately by a headline that says, "50% of Americans say healthcare for all is not govt's responsibility." At least, round up so you don't look like a schmuck.

2) So we're getting raped... but we're getting a trip to France too? Am I understanding that correctly? Then that's a better deal than Polanski offered. Plus, I don't give a fuck what Glenn Beck has to say about the government, Chinatown is a classic.

What is the story behind this picture? I see it everywhere, including my nightmares.

Chez, this was posted on that lefty biased Media Matters site. They're like hungry wolves ready to eat up any conservative who even utters the letter "A." MM is another Communist arm of the MSM trying to dupe the world that they don't have a far left liberal agenda. MM is founded by a far left homosexual (by the way, I love him, hate his sins) who went undercover in the conservative movement to "expose" their patriotic work. The funny thing is that he found nothing.

Media Matters cut Glenn off when he started to explain "unfunded liabilities." That's the real beef of the clip. So, what are those "unfunded liabilities worth $105 trillion?"
It means that we owe the Communist Chinese (who make excellent products to be sold for a low price at my Wal-mart) trillions of dollars! We can't pay the Reds back because Hussein Nobama didn't create the jobs to put patriots back to work so that we can pay the Reds back.

Now, the bed-wetters in this nation want a bunch of handout programs and not pay for them! This is robbery!

So what's new here? -- most of us in this country don't want this health care. This goes to show that millions of patriots and Bill White are Right.

I'm consistently sodomized by my current non-government insurance provider, so I for one am looking forward to the promise of at least getting quaaludes first when the government has a hand in it.

Why has this man not been committed yet?
If the healthcare thing goes through, he might even be able to afford a better class of mental institution....

BenoƮt from Ottawa said...

The image, derived somewhat, of Glenn Beck taking it from Roman Polanski, has something to it.

Hmmm. Does someone need to start a Get Roman Polanski to Date Glenn Beck Movement?

Just a germ of an idea...

Chez said...

He does of course know a little something about what he's speaking. After all, Glenn Beck supposedly raped a murdered a woman back in 1990.

Le Penseur said...

Glenn Beck was not, excuse this statement but I feel like it's true, given birth to by a woman but was in fact shat out by Satan.

Anonymous said...

Ironic choice of words considering the allegations that he raped and murdered a girl in 1990. Haven't ever heard him deny it or disprove it.

Chez said...

Projection at its finest.

What "Anonymous" said in the second comment. I mean, aside from the tastelessness of Beck's comment (and I have to admit, I can totally dig a good tasteless joke), leave it to Beck to not realize that Polanski's victim isn't the one who ended up cowering in France--that would be Mr. Polanski.

If you're going to go for the tasteless-pop-culture-reference joke, at least have the setup right. Is that too much to ask?

Or maybe Beck's goof is deliberate: could this be the Beckster finally acknowledging the truth of democracy that he and his cronies usually ignore--that there is no "us and them," that we are our own government, that Beck is responsible for Obama's successes and failures in the same way that I'm responsible for Bush's? (It pains me to say that, but that's part of the price and privilege of being an American--I didn't vote for GWB, but my countrymen did, thus he was my President however much I loathed the fact.) Perhaps Beck is making a clever philosophical statement about the sophisticated and subtle truths of representative govern--

--oh, hell, who the fuck am I kidding?
