- Illegal immigrants are either "terrorists," outlaws, or people who "can't make a living in their own dirtbag country", Link.
- Cindy Sheehan: "That's a pretty big prostitute", Link.
- Renamed nukes "climate-control devices," suggested bombing Venezuela, Link.
- Referred to survivors of Hurricane Katrina who remained in New Orleans as "scumbags", Link.
- Ann Coulter was "right" about the "9-11 wives." Further, "I like Ann Coulter," and said he did not "have a problem" with her characterization of some 9-11 widows as "the witches of East Brunswick." Link.
Back to Glenn Beck. He recently commented on the godless atheists of the Republic of California where Dante's inferno rages: "[A] handful of people who hate America ... are losing their homes in a forest fire today". Link. Conspiracy Theory Central gave a Tiger Woods fist pump upon hearing the words from Glenn. But the Beckster now says he was only joking. Link. Say what??? So were you joking about Cindy Sheehan and the 9-11 widows and bombing Venezuela and the Katrina refugees ... and all the other good stuff we tune into your show for? Conspiracy Theory Central was shaken.
Then the genius of it hit us: Glenn Beck is a new kind of satirist. Since the dawn of comedy, satire has been about poking fun at power. In medieval times, only the court jester possessed authorization to mock the king. So the tradition was set. The genius of Mr. Beck has been to take this tradition and turn it on its head, he attacks the powerless. Glenn Beck mocks people as their homes and worldly possessions go up in flames, a mother whose only son died in Iraq, poor immigrants lacking legal status. He cheers Ann Coulter as she savages the 9-11 widows who dare to speak out in Congress. Some have said Conspiracy Theory Central is not the sharpest tool in the shed. Forgive us Mr. Beck for having missed the genius of your comedy. We're certain you have launched a new genre.
