Since First Lady Michelle Obama unveiled her Let’s Move! program to fight obesity, conservatives have portrayed the effort as a government assault on personal freedoms and liberties. After the administration released a report on obesity in May, Matt Drudge ran a headline saying, “White House seeks controls on food marketing” and on his Fox News show, Sean Hannity asked: “Does every American family need a dietitian appointed by the government to tell them that this food is going to make you fat and this food is not?” Yesterday, Glenn Beck joined the act, criticizing Michelle Obama for encouraging restaurants to “offer healthier versions of the foods that we all love.” He also joked that fat people should die:
BECK: When I heard this I thought, get your damn hands off my fries, lady. If I want to be a fat fat fatty and shovel French Fries all day long, that is my choice. But oh oh, not so fast anymore. Because now we have the new fact, whether you like it or not, we have government health care now. … You know those fat people sitting on their couches? And I mean really fat. I don’t mean not like me. I mean the people who’s skin grows into the couch. … I say let them die. I say punish the person who’s been bringing them the milk shakes that allowed them to eat and not get up off the couch. Am I too harsh?
Beck was being facetious, but obesity is, in fact, a killer. The Wonk Room examines the obesity epidemic and details what the White House plans to do about it. (H/T: MMFA)
I, Hank Ramey, am fat.
Beck reminds me of the late Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Republican Senator from Wisconsin. He died a miserable death. This was after he slandered thousands of people calling them Communists or simply "un-American".
Beck claims he's going to be "blind". Here's what I want to see done with that Glenn Goldenass Beck Asshole:
1. He can be mangled to death. After he dies, he WON'T be with his parents, wife, and kids. He will be running around naked in his psychological hell. After some torment, he asks God to help. Guess Who says, "I never knew thee"? It would be more than 1,000+ years before his Judgment Day.
2. He can be paralyzed and speechless. He'll be in an auto accident and be a quadlapegic. Each time he shits uncontrollably, he'll be unable to tell anybody he needs help. He'll be worse than what Martin Lawrence suffered in Runtledat.
3. He can be blind for real. Remember when Dan Rather was attacked? He wasn't blind, and was able to identify his attackers. Goldster Beck could be beaten severely while blind, but absent witnesses, could Beck do the same?
Beck is the ultimate, spineless, draft-dodging PUSSY! He needs to suffer like McCarthy. This bitch of a cunt doesn't deserve to be on the planet. If this is a Tea Party leader, it's 1933 in Germany again!
If cunts like Beck keep saying that fat people should die, Heaven have mercy on that PUSSY! If you want to see what pussies are, look at pictures of hanged Nazi War Criminals. Beck can join them!
