Glenn Beck should not be a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He is not a Christian of any kind by any remote way.
Jesus Christ fed the poor, healed the sick, and raised the dead. He gave the Sermon on the mount on the basis of "come, follow Me." He chased thieves out of the Temple.
He died on the Cross. He told the thief next to Him, "for tomorrow you will be in Paradise." He died. He went to the dead in the dark. He visited all the righteous, taught all the repentant, and opened the Gates of Heaven.
He then left His tomb.
Mary Magdaline was looking for Him. She thought He was the gardener, and begged to take His body.
Jesus came back.
He also visited the Native Americans, the Polynesians, and the Ten Tribes.
"Senator [Dan Quayle], I served with Jack Kennedy, I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy." Sen. Lloyd Bentsen in the 1988 Vice Presidential Debate.
Beck, I was in the Pre-Existence. I was with Jesus Christ. I knew and still know Jesus. He is my Best Friend
You sir, are no Jesus Christ.
You don't know Jesus Christ.
As Keith Olbermann would say, "you sir, are an idiot."
YOU ARE A MOR-ON!
You weren't the first. It was Andrew Notsobriteassbitch that launched the attack on Shirley Sherrod. The clip where it was claimed that she discriminated against a White farmer was severely edited. The point was to show that Obama is a "racist", and will hurt and discriminate against White people. The entire Fux Propaganda Channel is trying to promote this and other allegations, such as Obama was born in Kenya, and that Obama is some sort of "Muslim" "Socialist" or "Fascist".
Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., was born on August 4, 1961, the 17th anniversary of the day Anne Frank and seven others were arrested by the Gestapo (Richard Belzer, the future Det. Munch, was also probably riding in his birthday present with his cousin, the future Arthur Fonzerelli, that day.), in Honolulu, Hawai'i. He was not born in Kenya, or anywhere out of the United States. They don't like Obama as President, BECAUSE HE IS BLACK.
Hitler didn't like Jews, because they were Jews.
"They passed a law in '64 to give others a little more.", Bruce Honrsby and the Range, "That's the Way It Is".
GET THE FUCK OVER IT!
THIS IS 2010, NOT 1960!
The Republican Party is no longer the Republican Party of 1860. It is a shell of the Democratic Party of 1860.
Ayn Rand Paul stated on the Rachel Maddow Show that he wanted segregation back. The Republican Party and its supporter, the Fux Propaganda Channel, have not condemned Paul; therefore, they are just as racist as the Southern Democrats were in the 1960's. Ask Latinos in Nazizona.
"She [Anne Frank] asks as if we started the War. Did we start the War?", Herman Van Pels ("Van Daan"). "The Diary of Anne Frank".
"We didn't start the fire! It was always burning as the world was turning!" Billy Joel, "We didn't start the fire!"
Glenn Goldenass Beck is a fraud. He advertises for Goldline. Goldline has ripped off thousands of people for thousands of dollars, including seniors. He is also a liar, and is not close to be a journalist. The Fux Propaganda Channel is just that, a cable channel to spread unfounded conservative propaganda, and then pose it as news. It is a giant amonium nitrate (bull shit) factory. Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, and the rest of the staff are no better than Joseph Goebbels, and the Ministry of Information and Propaganda.
I say all this because Shirley Sherrod was asked to resign by sending a text by cell phone on the way back to Athens, Georgia, because she was going to be a topic of Glenn Beck's show on the Fux Propaganda Channel.
Beck is a liar, fraudster, and thief. He should be excommunicated from the Church. I would not sustain him in any Church Office! His ass should be dragged to Congress and interrogated and interviewed by a House Committee. It does not matter if he is blind, HE IS ALREADY SPIRITUALLY BLIND! His acts in destroying people should force him to be humble. He is nothing more than Father Coughlin and Morton Downey, Jr. Beck is an embarrasment to the Church. He should, for his mental and physical health, must quit his radio and TV shows, if he is ever going to be closer to God again. If he doesn't, the Fux Propaganda Channel signed it's own death warrant. They are Joseph Goebbels and Joseph McCarthy combined, and if they don't understand it, then we are not the United States of America, but United States Hospital. Welcome to the Insane Asylum.
Sharron Sherrod should get her job back. Obama ought to quit pretending that the Republicans are going to be "bipartisan" when they want to go back to the days between 1994-2008. FUCK THEM! They started the Great Depression in the 1930's and started this Recession. It wasn't the Democrats. Between 2001-2009, the Republicans spent monies like they're the bunch of drunken sailors. It fine time in 2010, this November, more of them should be defeated, not less. Nancy Pelosi will remain the Speaker, and Harry Reid (Righteous and sane man) will remain the Senate Majority Leader. The Republicans and the Fux Propaganda Channel all drank the Kool Aid. So did Tom Vilsack. He should text his resignation on the Beltway.
Nikita Khrushchev said in "Enemy at the Gates", "He's [Marksman Vasili Zaytsev] making the Germans shit in their pants!"
The Republicans and the Fux Propaganda Channel should shit their pants.
Viva la Revolucion!
Vive la France Libre!
Es lebt unser heiliges Deutschland!
United We Stand!
Go to hell Glenn Beck!

Civil Rights and Shirley Sherrod's Family
Earlier this week, Digby posted some of Shirley Sherrod's speech - the parts Andrew Breitbart and his team chose to hide. (Media Matters has the video.) If you haven't seen it yet, it's pretty moving and thoughtful.
Three recent posts delve more into her story, her father's and her husband's.
"Hosie Miller: Shirley Sherrod's dad, and a casualty in a forgotten war," by Will Bunch:
How unusual was it for a black man to be killed by a white man in the Deep South up through the mid-1960s with no one brought to justice. Way too common. We hear a lot about one particular killing in Mississippi -- the 1964 murder of a trio of civil rights activists that included two white college kids from up North -- but in reality dozens of black men were killed for taking a stand, for trying to vote or just on a whim. If you want to read something sobering, check out this letter from 2007 from the Southern Poverty Law Center, asking the FBI to investigate some 74 additional unsolved deaths from the era.
"The civil rights heroism of Charles Sherrod," by Joan Walsh:
People who care about civil rights and racial reconciliation may eventually thank Andrew Breitbart for bringing Shirley Sherrod the global attention she deserves. Really. Her message of racial healing, her insight that the forces of wealth and injustice have always pit "the haves and the have-nots" against each other, whatever their race, is exactly what's missing in today's Beltway debates about race. What's even more amazing, but almost completely unexplored in this controversy, is the historic civil rights leadership role of her husband, Charles Sherrod, an early leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, who served on the front lines of the nonviolent civil rights movement in the early 1960s.
Despite Breitbart's attempt to cast Shirley Sherrod as The, um, Man ("The Woman" doesn't have the same ring), out to keep oppressed white folk down, under our first black racist president, she turned out to be the opposite, an advocate of justice for everybody. Given that history, it's fascinating to learn more about her husband, an early SNCC leader known for being willing to work with white volunteers even after tension developed over the role of whites in the organization. Charles Sherrod is important for much more than the fairness with which he treated whites, but given Breitbart's attempt to make his wife the poster woman for black "racism," that footnote to his leadership history is particularly noteworthy. If there's anyone more clueless about our civil rights history than Breitbart, as well as more abusive to it, I'm challenged to think of who it might be. He tests my commitment to nonviolent social change, but I'll share the work of Charles Sherrod to remember my values.
"Shirley Sherrod and the Dark History of Baker County," by Elizabeth Holtzman:
The bad news is that the forces of racism and those who cower before it are alive and well. The good news is that both the Spooners, the poor white farmers that Ms. Sherrod helped, and Ms. Sherrod were able to reject that racism to find what connected them. The best news would be if the country would decisively cast off the legacy of Sheriff Screws, Sheriff Johnson, and all the racist evil they represent.
Out here in L.A., some of the local PBS stations have been re-running Eyes on the Prize this year. I doubt Breitbart will watch it, but it seems it's always timely.
