Did anyone watch Glenn Beck on CNN last night? I did not, but someone who did was able to recite its premise almost verbatim today. In short, Muslim extremists are among us and planning a “Perfect Storm” that will make the Beslan school attack (near Chechnya) from a couple of years ago seem mild by comparison. Beck is apparently planning to beat this horse all week.
Here’s a link that details yesterday’s show: http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2007/09/crossroads-is-t.html
Apparently he’s been hyping this hsyteria for quite a while. Here’s a transcript from March 20: http://edition.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0703/20/gb.01.html
And another from July 19: http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0707/19/gb.01.html
Does anyone have a concise resource that decisively skewers this outrageous fearmongering? Anything short and sweet that quickly paints Glenn Beck for the fascist he is?
PS — There are some interesting articles out there suggesting that there was more to the school slaughter in Beslan than the official explanations. Sound familiar? See these links for more:
