The Republican Wrong – Not That They’re Paranoid

Every so often, Zelo Street brings you an item from across the Atlantic, just to underline the vaguely scary way that the right operates. And fortunately there is a fund of scariness waiting to be tapped, courtesy of Fox News Channel (fair and balanced my arse).

Among the gallery of Fox “stars”, one stands out as particularly eccentric, this being Glenn Beck. And this is no walk-on part: Beck’s “show” airs at 1700 hours Eastern Time, a prime slot which straddles the afternoon as it crosses the continent, going out in California at 1400 hours.

Last Friday’s Beck show included this exquisite piece of scaremongering. The preposterous premise is that children are being indoctrinated to turn on their parents, which Beck lays at the door of Barack Obama (no surprise there) and labels “evil” (ditto).

Perhaps parents who teach their children to be of independent thought are equally “evil”.
