Stewart And Colbert To Shame Beck And Palin’s Numbers With D.C. Rally Next Month??

Daily Show Full EpisodesPolitical HumorTea Party
I am – Hercules!! Oct. 30 is the date Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert will lead rallies in the nation’s capital. Stewart’s rally is being called “Rally To Restore Sanity,” an answer to the Aug. 28 “Rally To Restore Honor” featuring Fox News’ Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin. Colbert has dubbed his gathering “March To Keep Fear Alive.” The Beck/Palin rally attracted between 78,000 and 96,000 people, according to a crowd estimate commissioned by CBS News. Beck says his crowd could have been as large as 650,000, which is more! I predict the Stewart/Colbert rallies will not only attract a bigger crowd than the Beck/Palin extravaganza, but will attract a considerably more agile one. According to recent survey results, the average age of a Fox News viewer is 65, the oldest of any channel on television. Older even than the audiences for The Hallmark Channel, The Military Channel and The Golf Channel. Find all of the Huffington Post’s story on the matter here.

    I'm not afraid!

    by StarQrtrs

    "I'm not afraid of Muslims, Tea Partiers, Socialists, Immigrants, Gun Owners, Gay People, but I am afraid of Spiders" Truer words have never been spoken.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 3:36 p.m. CST


    by Fireball XL-5

    NBC political reporter Domenico Montanaro tweeted that a National Parks Service official estimated Beck's crowd at "between 300,000 and 325,000."

    Who pays for all these look at me rallys?

    by RPLocke

    We do.

    by Hercules

    Don't believe that tweet. The National Parks Service hasn't issued crowd estimates since 1995's Million Man March.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 3:42 p.m. CST


    by Fireball XL-5

    Though the estimate wasn't official, it did come from the National Parks Service.

    Ledergrant, are you aware of what "coaxial" means?

    by schadenfreudian

    Just checking...

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 3:54 p.m. CST

    I know you guys hate Beck..

    by Monroville

    and I can't say I care for his desperation to be like Howard Beal (from NETWORK), but facts are facts and sorry to tell you guys, but Beck had close to 400,000 to 500,000 people there. In this photo (which could have been doctored), the area around the pool directly below the Lincoln memorial holds 200,000 people. Notice how that is full, as well as the much larger area to the left of it: <p> <p> Even so, it will be interesting to see a comparison pic between this rally and Stewart's/Colbert's from the same angle. I also wished someone took pics of the aftermath AFTER everyone left.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 3:56 p.m. CST

    Another thing too...

    by Monroville

    Will the left-leaning organizers (in this case, Stewart and Colbert) be giving out free stuff and/or paying people to go to inflate the numbers (you know, like most other lefty rallies)?

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 3:56 p.m. CST


    by StarQrtrs

    AICN covers TV/Movie Entertainment, which basically is what John Stewart, Glenn Beck and all these guys are. Unless you actually consider them news reporters. Which if you do then, well, you're utterly f'ing lost. These guys are entertainers first and foremost.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 3:58 p.m. CST

    lefty rallies?

    by spidercoz

    republicans do the same thing, if you think otherwise you're a fool

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4 p.m. CST

    "Between 78,000 and 96,000"

    by James Westfall

    Desperation is a stinky cologne. Hell, even leftist MSNBC said Beck's crowd size was closer to 500K. Keep spinnin', spinnah!

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4 p.m. CST

    Stewart and Colbert won't get nearly as many

    by Raskolnikov_was_framed

    people as Beck did...mostly because these rallies are a joke...both guys are comedians not political figures...who would get riled up enough to go to these things? Say what you want about Beck but he can rile people up...Stewart and Colbert overestimate their popularity and reputation I think

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:01 p.m. CST

    who the fuck cares how many people showed up

    by itrainmonkeys

    you guys are fucking arguing about attendance numbers rather then the real issues at hand.....mainly Beck and others using fear to control people and tell them what to do. But guys want to argue statistics.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:02 p.m. CST

    not quite

    by I87D

    Even Comedy Central's own estimates have the audiences for each rally pegged at about 25,000. I have no doubt the content of these rallies will be spot -- exposing the pomp and circumstance of the demagogues who take themselves way too seriously while offering nothing of substance -- but the headline you'll see on Fox News on Sunday will be mostly about how the attendance paled in comparison to the Beck rally.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:03 p.m. CST


    by Raskolnikov_was_framed

    how is that any different than lefties using politcal correctness to control people and tell them how to think?

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:04 p.m. CST

    Spidercoz: I guess I'm a fool then...

    by Monroville

    While it wouldn't surprise me (especially with rallies headed by politicians), I have yet to see any hard-core evidence that republicans/conservatives have to be paid to go to a conservative rally. Compare the left, which has groups who exist to be paid to rally and protest, as well as bus people in from areas even outside of a state for state issue (the Arizona protests being one of them). You may not like it, Spidercoz, but there are lefties who have made a career out of doing nothing but staging protests. There may be righties who do the same thing, but they are no where NEAR as professional and consumer oriented (ala MTV and their "get out the vote" type stuff).

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:04 p.m. CST

    "Beck had close to 400,000 to 500,000 people there"

    by Hercules

    then CBS should get its money back from the organization that provided the network's crowd estimate. <p>If Stewart or Colbert pays me, I'll come to the rally.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:07 p.m. CST

    So what you're saying Itrainmonkeys..

    by Monroville

    Is that your perception of Beck outweighs facts in an argument? As others have pointed out, the whole point of the crowd size number count is to discredit Beck and Palin. Like their personalities or not, but if they make a good point with history to back it up, what can you do but ignore it or agree with it?

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:08 p.m. CST

    Let Me Use A Tactic From The Left...

    by Raskolnikov_was_framed

    and change the debate...all you lefties in support of the ground zero mosque under the "freedom of religion" angle...why are you not crucifying Islam for forcing the woman who started the draw Muhammed day into hiding? Funny how we have lefties spouting freedom of religion but ignoring freedom of speech...what a wacky group of assholes eh?

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:09 p.m. CST


    by spidercoz

    never said there weren't, but both sides use the same tactics because both sides only care about one thing: power. if you haven't seen the evidence, you're not looking

    by MattDomville

    John Stewart is a member of the Green Lantern Corps.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:12 p.m. CST

    There were even more people at this rally...

    by BryonMorrigan Ignorance is catchy.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:13 p.m. CST

    Attendance? Does that really matter at all?

    by StarQrtrs

    There's a reason why Stewart won't get as many as Beck, is for exactly the reason Stewart said. We have a life, we have a job, we have a family, we just in general have things to do! I'd love to go, sounds like fun and I do agree with a lot of things he said, but again, I'm actually busy. Seriously, why are you guys fighting over attendance? Who f'ing cares?! If he gets a huge audience, great, who cares? If Beck gets a big audience, again, who cares? Good for them.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:14 p.m. CST

    Spidercoz: I'm not talking about the politicians...

    by Monroville

    I'm talking about the general public who are conservative or liberal.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:16 p.m. CST

    Yeah cause Glenn Fucking Beck is a politcal figure

    by Terrmaster

    He has no more say so then Stewart. And he is also FUCKING CRAZY.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:16 p.m. CST

    If Stewart and Colbert don't get the numbers

    by skimn

    it's simply because they won't have the TeaBaggers wet dream Sarah "read my palms" Palin on stage to squeek out some diatribe.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:18 p.m. CST

    I hope this fails miserably!!

    by fanboy71

    Both of these guys need a big dose of reality! Neither are nearly as funny as they think they are. I have watched them a few times, and never laughed once. They only people attending this will be people wanting to be entertained. Beck's rally was full of people wanting change. HUGE difference.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:19 p.m. CST


    by BryonMorrigan

    Look. These people (Teabaggers) actually listen to, and believe in, the words of a bunch of uneducated dropouts like Beck, Hannity, and Limbaugh, even when they spout easily-debunked lies. They believe a pseudo-historian like David Barton (who only has a BA in "religious education") that the USA was created as a "Christian Nation," when every REAL historian (you know...guys with PhDs...) laugh at him. They sneer at "intellectuals" and frown upon intelligence. What do you really expect from them? You can't argue with stupid.

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:37 p.m. CST

    There's no intention to "beat" Beck's rally...

    by Chewtoy

    ...the point is to mock it. You don't draw huge numbers asking for the reasonable people to come out... that's the whole point. If nobody shows up, it's because "they've got shit to do." Taking part in rallies, getting worked into a lather, painting Hitler 'staches on leaders... that's for crazy people. <br><br>If Stewart wanted to "beat" Beck, he'd rally people around some idea that they "must" make their voices heard, not "if you can find a sitter for a few hours." Honestly, it's mocking the fuck out of the whole idea of these angry marches and rallies that serve vague ends.

    Mockery is a grade school tactic. It's more shameful to the people organizing the rally.

    Good or Evil?

    by venvariants

    That's really all this comes down to. Is the team trying to kill everybody that isn't rich and white and straight Good or Evil? Is the team trying to save the environment and help the poor get their meds without being screwed by a money hungry doctor Good or Evil?

  • Sept. 17, 2010, 4:57 p.m. CST

    The point is to mock people who get easily riled up

    by ccchhhrrriiisssm

    Even CBS admitted that they may have "underestimated" the size of the crowd. <p> I know that you purposely chose the CBS figures (because they were "lowball" estimates), but you might have consulted NBC, ABC, CNN or even the AP to cross reference those figures. All of their figures were MUCH higher. </p><p> Of course, something tells me that you selectively chose that figure anyway.</p> <p>Damn, Hercules, you really are becoming an evangelist for the lost cause of liberalism, aren't you? Geez. I bet that you think that there is a chance that the RADICAL LIBERALS in Congress will actually GAIN seats in November, huh? </p>Keep dreaming!

    And so should you.<br /> <br /> Unless you're be one o' them unpatriotists.<br /> <br /> Seriously-kinda, though. It's a talkback -- a thing that exists only for discussion. Well, and profit. But discussion as far as we're concerned.<br /> <br /> If you 'hate' that a privately owned site, identifiable for it's scatological and personality-driven nature, posts on a subject that's relevant to one of the editor's field of reportage and then gets lots of, very diverse, responses from it, then don't participate. Or do. Or argue your corner rationally and calmly. Or make jokes.<br /> <br /> Or post lots of things in an overly dramatic, grandstanding, tantrum-y manner scattered terms with 'libtard' and 'is what our founding father REALLY wanted'.<br /> <br /> Whatever your type, the talkback wins. And I don't care which you chose, as I WILL be laughing, with or at you, regardless.

    by smackfu

    the point of this rally isn`t to beat Glenn Beck`s rally, it`s to not-so-subtly imply to anyone who takes Beck seriously, that he is just as much a part of the fake-news-for-entertainment industry as they are. Beck admitted himself, ON CAMERA during the first year of his show that it shouldn`t be taken seriously, that it`s all done for entertainment purposes. He`s the political equivalent of Ms Cleo.

    Do some research. Dems have had a majority since 2006. A lot of those things the left is still blaming Bush for were passed by democrats. And I disliked Bush as much as anybody, but what we have now is 100 times worse. We are on a track to become a socialist country if something doesn't change. Luckily it looks like the dems are going down in November, and hopefully the pubs will put up a decent candidate (Not PALIN!) in 2012.

    RPLocke, do you know what Stewart/Colbert DO?

    by MR. MURDOCH

    They are the messengers of humor and parody in contemporary American society -- they have no interest in "taking sides" or promoting "sanity" or "fear." Every society needs at least one humorist/parodist to shine a reflective light on how hypocritical we can ALL become at various points in our lives. Don't you recall the idea of the "court jester"? This notion has existed SINCE THE BEGINNING OF CIVILIZATION. That is what Stewart/Colbert's purpose is. Just like Parker/Stone and 'South Park', they have NO allegiances (in public, as they "perform," at least). Why do you think they're on a network called COMEDY CENTRAL?? Why anyone would get angry, or even a little upset, at a few (arguably semi-talented) dudes having a gathering to throw a little more humor into our often overly-critical, overly-serious, often hateful rhetoric that we hear everyday, I'll never know...

    what really matters

    by redshirt

    It doesn't matter if more show up for Stewart/Colbert. What matters as that those that showed up for Beck are motivated voters who are on fire. Not so for the comedy central crowd. It's a joke to them. It's vitally serious to the Beck crowd.

They are worried more about Fido's peepee than terrorists. </p> <p>The spirit of the KKK is found in a political party who will tax the hell out of people to pay for programs that only a few rich, white, liberal career politicians think is best.</p> <p> The spirit of the KKK is found in the 18% of the country who are liberal who want to FORCE their socioeconomic views on the other 82% of us (moderates and conservatives) and then call it "democracy."</p> <p>The spirit of the KKK is found when we pander to illegal foreign nationals in our nation who march down our streets demanding that nothing be done to stop their entry into our nation and sucking BILLIONS of $$$s out of our social welfare system that are meant for our own citizens who need it. </p> <p>Yeah, the spirit of the KKK is alive and well. It primarily lives in Washington DC and has changed from the old Democratic party of slavery and Jim Crow (based upon prejudicial hatred of people of color) into a group who hates people because of their faith, morals and socioeconomic common sense. </p><p> Of course, if you took Nancy Pelosi's welfare dick out of your mouth for more than ten minutes a day (or if you moved out of your parents' basement), you might actually realize that the world is bigger than your narrow, isolated views. People like you are so offended that anyone would have an opinion that differs from your own limited you spend time thinking up what you perceive to be "witty" and "clever" examples of scorn and ridicule. </p><p>Bravo. You are such a great example of your kind -- and a reason why fanatical Liberal politicians will be voted out by the multitude in less than two months!</p>Keep it up! Maybe the Republicans will take over the Senate -- since the House and the Governor's races are a foregone conclusion!

    Liberal gatherings always suffer from the same basic failure: their leech constituency by and large is utterly unable to get themselves off their bottoms when it really should matter to them. On the flip side it is to be held in the area with the highest concentration of libs per square mile in the US. Which trend will win?

    Check them out. Look for two things:<p> 1) An attendee who actually knows the facts about any given issue, and not just Beck-Talking-Points.<p> 2) An attendee who is not Caucasian.<p> Guess how many of either you'll find?<p> My favorite was the woman who said that she had just heard that the Obama administration banned praying at all the DC monuments. When pressed for where she heard it, she stuttered for a minute and finally settled on "on the news". Bravo, madam.

    by NathanGrey

    Who is working their computer for their teabagger brains? I LOL'd hard at the 500,000 estimate. Really? Here are some facts for idiot Teabaggers here: CBS commissioned an estimate from AirPhotosLive, a company that provides crowd sizes based on aerial photos. CBS noted that there's a margin of error of plus or minus 9,000. So, by this estimate, there were as few as 78,000 attendees or as many as 96,000. This is using that scary thing; science. I can understand why Republicans would use their heart for the real estimate right? Why dont we use Michelle Bachmann's 1,000,000

    ... are likely already written to either crow about the size of the Stewart/ Colbert crowd or explain away the lack of crowd as it being "a comedy show" that no one really took seriously. It's really pretty amazing to watch the anger that rises up from the left any and every time an American speaks out against the Obama agenda. The Beck rally was a grass roots movement aimed at bringing faith back into the equation for those who choose to. The Stewart/ Colbert rally is meant directly to make fun of those who believe in anything.

    <p>18% huh??? Wow, how the hell do they win elections with only 18% of the vote. That's fucking amazing!</p> <p></p> <p>That's right, liberals hate people of faith. That's why they're so opposed to building an Islamic Cultural Center over two blocks from ground zero - or as the Rethugs would have you believe, a Mosque on Ground Zero.</p> <p></p> <p>Let's see, income tax was less than it has been since the 1950s and they're expecting similar taxes for next year.</p> <p></p> <p>People who make less than $200,000 a year are paying fewer in taxes and those making more that $200,000 are paying more. Now how unfair is that? What if the family needs a second Jacuzzi for their winter home? How can they afford it AND that trip around the world. I feel so sorry for those rich people now.</p> <p></p> <p>The world can be so unfair.</p> <p></p> <p>As for privacy issues, remember when Obama okayed the warrantless wiretaps on America citizens? Remember when he sent us into Iraq under the pretense of looking for WMDs? Remember when he destroyed over a million emails from the White House computers? Remember when he was allowing torture in direct violation of the Geneva Accords? I especially remember when he thought it was more important to go to a party and get a custom guitar with the Presidential seal that heading to the Gulf coast to check on the destruction wrought by Katrina. And after Obama finally showed up, he told the guy in charge of the FEMA that he was doing a "Heck of a job."</p> <p></p> <p>Yeah, I wish Liberals could be as cool and compassionate as Conservatives.</p>

This has already gotten a crazy amount of people on the net interested but was also on googles #1 search a few weeks ago for colberts "restoring truthiness" phrase. Anyone who denies these guys are comedic genius's(Some of the correspondants like Wyatt Cynac suck balls) but Stewart owns any debate and is funny as hell. I'm ashamed that others are ignorant enough to not see his genius. And yes if you disagree with that your an idiot, if you give me that "it's just my opinon and I'm entitled to it" then your opinon is retarded. Sure not every episode is gold but he shows(what most of us already kno anyways but it's great TV) how supid and fear mongoring some media outlets(fox news) and public officials really are.

They will have to live with others in peace or simply anger themselves into the grave while the rest of the world moves forward. And comparing liberals to KKK is fucking asinine. Liberals didn't hang people from trees. Ask David Duke what he is, and he'll say he is a conservative. And don't say shit to me about minorities when you aren't one. Ok, gonna calm down and not fall into the tea bag trap anymore.

    Colbert and Stewart...

    by Jonatwork

    ...pose as being nonpartisans who bash both sides. Yet I never saw them doing something like this when it was liberals who assembled in D.C. How dare those conservatives exercise their right to assemble and talk in platitudes to those who already agree with them! That's reserved for liberals only! If these two were actually as funny and informed as their writing staffs think they are, they'd know Beck's rally was already a straightfaced parody--of what liberals have been doing. Stewart and Colbert are actually going to look stupid doing this because they will be exposed as speaking only for a tiny minority of sneering libs who claim to love the blue collar working folks. Colbert and Stewart hide behind their "We're just JOKING, jeez!" poses, but you just know they'll be disappointed if they don't get huge crowds...which will of course show how badly these two "independents" want to show up them stupid conservatives. (Who aren't nearly as smart as, say, the president who fought Bush's overspending with...more overspending, and those smart Dodd and Frank dudes who smartly destroyed Fannie and Freddi...and...)

    Will Beck Teach

    by Creative1

    at his "University" the Treaty of Tripoli (Signed by John Adams - 2nd President of the United States and signer of the Constitution) Article 11 states "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries." He didn't write it but he did sign it. One of the founding fathers that help frame and write the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution signed a Treaty that said the U.S. was not founded on the Christian religion...That sound you hear is Tea Baggers (I'm sticking with their original name) heads exploding.

    Beck and Palin love the constitution and the country

    by gotilk

    .. umm.. well, the parts they remember. And the country they recall from those perfect olden days back when they weren't paying attention and life was simpler or they hadn't been born yet(that 50s Fantasyland that everyone recalls ..and that never existed). How much you wanna bet both of these people have daddy complexes? Stoic, conservative. distant dads, long dead, who they are always trying to impress in their heads. Beck should have stuck with the morning zoo thing. He's doing pretty well for himself, I'll give him that. But he does nothing but spout pseudo-patriotic nonsense while almost single-handedly tearing down not only some of the nation's foundations, but the foundations of the Republican party that WAS headed back toward a truly conservative direction. Now it's back to God and Guns and Paranoia. Instead of focusing on improving the party that.. yes... actually had more to do with ending discrimination and institutionalized racism than the Democrats ever did. Just watch. Don't be fooled into thinking that one major tea party win means it will happen over and over. It will not. It will do nothing eventually except divide the Republican/Conservative base and hand almost everything over to the Dems. Remember Ross "can ya let me finish" Perot? This is going to make Ross Perot look like Ralph Nader. You want to bring true conservatism back to the party, stop defending these brainless twats and start getting behind more Libertarian-leaning candidates. In a big way, with flash. Decentralized. Just like the tea party. Like that famous book says. Be the starfish, not the spider. And in case you have me "all figured out", I am in fact against gun control (in the US), for a woman's right to choose, against drug laws (without being a drug USER), against censorship, against the part of the Democratic party's "save you from yourself" friendly fascism, pro gay marriage, pro gay rights, and for the continued separation of church and state... unless they want to start paying taxes out their asses. I LIKE the idea of a flat tax, and am FOR the free market.. but BOTTOM UP instead of how most of these fake conservatives always want it done, TOP DOWN. Bullshit. It's just greed that way. If they REALLY want free markets, start at the bottom and work your way up instead of handing MORE breaks to these GIGANTIC companies while still stiffing us once a year for a third of our money. Deregulate the guy just starting out. Hell, I can't even have 2 garage sales a year in my town. Most people who spout about free markets don't know what they're talking about or don't really want it for everyone. Just themselves and their rich buddies. The rest of us can fuck off. Screw that. It's a scam.

    Glenn Beck said,

    by Dingbatty

    "You know, it took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims’ families. It took me about a year. Um, and I had such compassion for them and I really, you know, I wanted to help them, and I was behind — let’s give them money, let’s get them started, and all of this stuff. And I really didn’t — all the 3,000 victims’ families, I don’t hate all of them, I hate about, probably about ten of them. But when I see 9/11 victim family, you know, on television, or whatever, I’m just like, ‘Oh, shut up.’ I’m so sick of them. Because they’re always complaining. And we did our best for them. And again, it’s only about ten."

  • Sept. 18, 2010, 1:49 a.m. CST

    Glen Beck also said,

    by Dingbatty

    "But the second thought I had when I saw these people and they had to shut down the Astrodome and lock it down, I thought: I didn't think I could hate victims faster than the 9-11 victims. These guys -- you know it's really sad. We're not hearing anything about Mississippi. We're not hearing anything about Alabama. We're hearing about the victims in New Orleans. This is a 90,000-square-mile disaster site, New Orleans is 181 square miles. A hundred and -- 0.2 percent of the disaster area is New Orleans! And that's all we're hearing about, are the people in New Orleans. Those are the only ones we're seeing on television are the scumbags -- and again, it's not all the people in New Orleans. Most of the people in New Orleans got out! It's just a small percentage of those who were left in New Orleans, or who decided to stay in New Orleans, and they're getting all the attention. It's exactly like the 9-11 victims' families. There's about 10 of them that are spoiling it for everybody."

Perpetual war, the elimination of all industry, elimination of a middle class, complete and total control of the state over the individual. The USA is a Fascist one party state under total control of a foreign banking cartel. Glenn Beck and john Stuart are Commissars propaghandizing for the party only appealing to different segments of the population. They get paid to keep everyone infighting so they never see the big picture. Both wings of the one party work directly for the Foreign banks which make up the federal reserve and the military industrial complex that control the country. What do you think the bailouts are? They are looting the treasury of a collapsing nation. It happens all the time to third world banana republics and now its happening to America.

There's 300 million people in this country. Getting a 100,000 together isn't a big deal. I'm sure there's enough hipster dufuses out there who think they're being cool by attending the event. I'm sure they'll feel even better decades from now when they're living in the dystopian future brought on by decades of apathetic voting.

He used a 3rd party for crowd numbers - a firm that actually publicized it's basis for the numbers unlike the other organizations including MSNBC. I suppose my heart should be gladdened that geekdom straddles both the left and right as proved by this talkback. Instead it's just sad to see the hyperventilating of the right.

    A very serious question

    by PeanutButterSlut

    How come the right wing nuts vote for policies that fuck them over? <p> I mean, most people that attended the Beck rally were poor/out of work and on American Socialist programs like unemployment/medicare. Some of them may have also have been underinsured, or perhaps had no job or insurance. <p> But they want to rally together to make sure they will never have Jobs or Insurance? <p> I dont get it.

    Because I was. Not to attend the rally, but I work in D.C. and was at the mall that day. Having seen plenty of these things, I have to say, there wasn't much more than 100,000 people there. Not that it really matters that much. I would think we'd hear a lot more crowing from Beck if it actually was close to half a million, which there's no way it was.

    by DioxholsterReturns

    those poor white trash love capitalism over big government because they value freedom. freedom to own guns, to practice religion, to home-school, to drink and eat whatever as long as it aint pot (contradictory yes) and most of all have the dream of owning a business or farm without government taxing them. Whatever its just ideology, whether they are rich or poor thats what they believe in. They are uneducated, fat, paranoid, over-patriotic, believe that Jesus will save them. This all goes back to the civil war when the south rebelled against the Union north. This all got settled now of course, but the division is still there.

    Wikipedia can be a good resource, but the fact any jerk-off can throw something to one of their entries makes invalid. Even University of Phoenix thinks they are a joke and won't let students use them as references. That should tell you something. I'll go with the close to 100,000. Which is what the Tea Party usual gets. I also love the GOP counting their chickens before they are cooked. The big surprise for the fall is the amount of failed seats the GOP could have had. They will get seats, but the closer we get to November, the more we will see the Tea Party people start losing their minds to the pressure and dirt about them. Also, the fact some of them like CT is just not electable.

One of those supporters is Governor Palin, and you just "might" be able to locate her email address. Or, at least, *one* of her email addresses. By the way... President Obama doesn't have a degree. He has two, with one being a Bachelors and another being a professional degree. Yet, I wouldn't be surprised if that's simply a "minor" detail in your eyes. Seriously, I can appreciate anyone with socially or fiscally conservative views. What I find laughable is the notion that so many people can find so much value in Glen Beck's chicanery.

    Um, yeah. Actually, one generally has to have a certain level of intelligence in order to obtain a degree, particularly a Doctorate from a well-respected and difficult to get into institution like Oxford. And it's even more important when that degree is in, you know...POLITICS, as it pretty much solidifies Maddow as being the most educated person on TV in regards to that particular subject. <br> <br> In contrast, you have guys like Beck, Hannity, and Limbaugh, all three of which DROPPED OUT of college without getting a degree, and whose only real life experiences have been in regards to BROADCASTING. IOW, they're certainly qualified to discuss matters like say, traffic reports, and run radio sweepstakes for "Caller #9," but nobody with an ounce of sense would assume that they were anywhere nearly as knowledgeable regarding politics and government as a PhD in the subject.<br><br> It's also quite telling that the party whose major spokespeople are so uneducated is also the party that shows such disdain for "intellectuals" (Read: SMART PEOPLE).<br><br> Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, and their ilk are just so utterly ashamed of their inability to obtain academic success that they take it out on those who are smarter than they are. They're nothing more than the "stupid jock" character from a John Hughes movie, giving the nerd a wedgie and calling him a "fag."

    ...I can tell you that there were probably no more than 100K people there. Sure, there are variances when you take into account the actual attendees vs. curiosity seekers, tourists, and so forth. However, there was what we in the area call, "A Lot of Green". Meaning that anyone who has attended DC rallies in the past kind of gets the feel for their magnitude and can spot the open spaces on the Mall.<P>So, when you consider that Michelle Bachman began lying about the size of the crowd THAT DAY, I have to laugh at those who vehemently defend the larger crowd estimates (300K-500K) whose totals are derived from dubious methods.<P>The best part about the rally was the word on the street in DC. Most people were confused as to what the message was supposed to be. They went there thinking they were going to get a healthy dose of Tea Pary/Anti-Obama red meat. Instead...they got an evangelical sermon served up with some Sarah Palin military cocksucking.<P>"Restoring honor" by "returning America to God"? Thomas Jefferson would have been appalled.

    The left-wing fundamentalist fringe groups have a right to their religion too. The book of Barack gives them HOPE. Support them. They're white devils also, but by supporting a black president and the homosexual agenda, they feel less guilty and their lives take on profound meaning. That's good. They're always fair and right and wise and white and the race card is their calling card. So, support the left wing fundamentalists as much as the right. Their love for everyone who agrees with them is intoxicating. Drink deeply of their cool-aid. Attend their rally. And remember to buy a T-shirt, an Obama vacation in Tahiti won’t happen!

    Gosh, this is a very long TB

    by Psychonaut

    Being British, I don't really understand American politics. It seems to involve a lot of shouting and fake tan. We like to do things more sedately, with a little shabby-genteel corruption, and some funny wigs. However, given that there's always the risk that you lot might get carried away someday, and accidentally extinguish all life on the planet, I've recently decided to try and take an interest, even if its only to gauge how worried I should be. I can't do much that's constructive beyond that. I haven't even got a garden to dig a bomb shelter in. So, it seems to me, as near as I can work out, American politics seems to be a perpetual spat between two groups. These groups are roughly the same size, which is why the spat has been going on for so long. Neither group's core positions are fundamentally unreasonable, which probably explains why you've only had one civil way. Both groups have got an entertainingly wacky fringe. We don't get to see much of the wacky Democrat fringe in the UK. Probably because they aren't as funny. The stereotype that appears to be propounded is that they are the sort of people who would, given the chance, sink the entire US GDP into funding an interpretative dance collective staffed entirely by tetraplegic lesbians. This is obviously quite funny, but is, sort of, at least congruent with the basic values of the party, merely amplified to a ludicrous extent. What I can't work out is the connection between the Republicans and religious lunatics. Near as I can see, the Republicans core values are that people should stand on their own two feet, that business, trade, and capitalism are good, and that government should be as small as possible. I just don't see the connection between that and people who believe that the earth is only a few thousand years old, that the Theory of Evolution is responsible for the Holocaust and stuff like that. I mean, these people are just dim. I sort of figured that the key appeal of the Republicans was that they were hard-headed realists who weren't taken in by the let's-all-hold-hands-and-sign-we-are-the-world antics of the Democrats. I can't see the connection between that position and being, well, a mental who thinks Jesus lives in his sock drawer and has told him how to cure gays. Can anyone explain? I ask because some of these people seem to be doing quite well in your election-y things at the moment, and I've always been of the view that people who genuinely believe that the Rapture will follow a terrible apocalypse should never be placed in a position where they could realistically try and find out whether they're right or not.

    Book of Barack

    Don't be upset. It's okay. I'm here to tell you not to be afraid. I know you're angry because you've backed yourself into the corner of hypocrisy. Here, (extends hand) come out of the dark and have some fruit. Frrruit. Can you say fruit? No? Well, let's at least get some napkins and see about cleaning up that puddle and getting you some dry trousers. I'm patting you on the head because I'm giving you my approval. You're both good boys. Yes, good! Goooood. Can you say good too? No? Well the book of Barack says you're both good, even though ye be white devils of limited capacity for rational thought. But the book of Barack also says not to let facts get in the way and to use the word TOLERANCE as your great and mighty shield. Hide behind it when things get rough. Now, go forth and do the work of a left-wing fundamentalist. So sayeth Barack!

    What can Liberal CA do with $2 million?

    by BW91961

    I don't hate most liberals. I just feel sorry for them. It's a disease. I just think if we can continue to squeeze all the Liberals into California they will eventually kill each other off. I like how California's Public works and transportation took $111,000,000 of taxpayer money and created a GRAND TOTAL OF 55 jobs. Guess what? You Lefties will go right back to the polls and put the same people back in office. Liberals are laughable. Jon Stewart isn't horrible he doesn't bother me. I love how people such as Glenn Beck upset you so much. So many blogs dedicated to taking down and dicrediting a single person instead of preparing for November or trying to repair California's economy. The Right has faith in each other and in God. Whether you believe in God or not you can't deny MOST people of faith are good caring people. We care for each other instead if worrying about are carbon footprint. That's another thing. What makes the Left think they can go toe to toe with mother nature. If the globe is warming do you honestly think you can stop it by purchasing overpriced green products. The green products are sold by greedy f*ckers like yourself because they know you will by it. I dare anyone on the Left to watch one week of Beck and tell me you don't understand why he does what he does and why we listen to him (most of the time) I watch Matthews and Olberman once per week just to make sure I'm getting the full story about certain issues. I have yet to be impressed. The Left won't watch Beck because they fear the truth the fear the Lefts true past and they fear this movement they blow off as redneck or white rallies. BTW video can be found of Black Beck supporters in the link below. This is how I know the Left never check their facts. Please watch the video. A scrawny white liberal decides to bring up religion to this with the black conservative. And I swear to god I quote this kid. "You should be Muslim!" There is something very wrong in this country but it Isn't Beck. Start looking at each other to find the answer. I respect a lot of Democrats and people on the left. The ones who know their facts and history. They have all but given up on their major leaders. Also talk about talking points I can't have an intelligent political conversation with a Liberal without them bringing Beck up. Give me a break. You guys give him more credit than I DO!

    Do you even know what the difference between Fascisism and Communism really is? Did it ever occur to you that the Nazi Party started out as THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY, and that many of the Germans duped by Hitler were the sort of European Jews that later fled to America and, 20+ years later, were suspected of being Communist spies and helpers by Senator McCarthy and others? Do you honestly think that a Fascist regime would have no centralized government and let all forms of trade go unchecked - or that a Communist one would let you practice any religion you want (or TOLERATE multiculturalism and NOT lie to suit the "state") and give you a CHOICE of people to succeed the former national leader that doesn't have the exact same idealogical perspective? If you don't know the difference, it's probably because, in practice, there's hardly any difference at all. At best, a difference might be that a Fascist regime would adopt some sense of religious and cultural supremacy, and be quicker to prove that supremacy through military conquest, whereas a Communist one - historically known to become pretty militaristic itself - would try to eliminate any semblance of religiosity or multiculturalism as a means of ensuring their idea of "equality" and stability amongst the proletariat / working class (i.e., everyone not in the government). But that's the whole idea here - whether it's EXTREME right-wingers thinking we should be a Christian theocracy with no taxation, or EXTREME leftists thinking all rich people are evil and Christianity should be outlawed - neither side represents the Constitution, if they even really know what it says. That said, you sound like you're probably one of those that smiled when Clinton wanted to extend the term-limit of the Presidency in 1999 & 2000, but still calls Bush imperialistic and dictatorial, 2 years out of office. If you really think a Socialist agenda is any better than a Fascist, and will result in a freer, more fair-minded nation, then you've got no more room to talk about "fascist teabaggers" than I would have to talk about "Communist"-leftist-Marxist Democrats.

    "American History...a true Cinderella Story"

    by Bill Clay

    American fascism, by definition, became possible once the inhabitants of the Colonies began to see themselves as other than ordinary Englishmen who happened to reside on the other side of the Atlantic. They had to become an identity group. That self-perception solidified, at least among the disaffected, as soon as friction arose between the two populations, culminating in the War for Independence. Victory arrived with all of the fascist accoutrements, tribal symbols, a self-glorifying national narrative and, of course, a flag.<p> However, those who had the responsibility of fashioning the new nation were an unusual assembly of highly educated, sophisticated people (mostly lawyers) who were well aware of the dangers the fledgling republic was facing - not external dangers, but internal ones. Much consideration went into creating obstacles to giving birth to what we are calling a fascist state. But the seeds had already been planted; America's development was dependent on the processes of genocide and slavery.<p> If one overlooks American poaching in Canada and Florida and similar early adventures, one could say that it was pretty much a done deal once the Republic engaged in its first full-blown war of international aggression, which resulted in the acquisition of the northern half of Mexico. Not too much later, the United States proclaimed itself a full-blown Imperialist power in the European tradition with its conquest of the Spanish territorities of the Phillipines, Cuba and Puerto Rico, while at the same time grabbing Hawaii from its indigenous population.

    Everyone who is bitching about the numbers at Beck's rally: who gives a shit. Germany in 1938 has taught us that a really bad idea can be supported by a lot of people. It isn't he numbers it is the message. Republican Concepts of Electioneering were well established by the mid 1970's by the late Lee Atwater. His concept was simple and effective: your rival isn't just wrong, he's evil and you should do anything to paint him as such. The day after Clinton was elected for the first time I saw friends with impeach Clinton pins. Since the bible thumpers would view precognition as wicked, I could only guess that this was a concerted effort to throw up any roadblock possible. We are one nation and have to get back to that. We have to stop this incessant demonization of the other. We do have to end the fear mongering and ginning up the uninformed. Maybe Stewert and Colbert are on the right track.

    WOW TEABAGGERHARRY that stupid bridge would have brought in much more tax money than your $2 million a piece jobs would have brought in. Bridge to nowhere = $398 million (only cost Americans $25 million when the funding was pulled). Hell LA could have created 199 jobs for the full price of the bridge. Which would have brought in...i don't know around $700,000 in tolls per year better than your 199 jobs in my opinion. BILL AND NICE you really are dumb liberals. let me ask you if the cops where on their way to your house to arrest you for possession of pot and you they broadcast it on the news that they will be there in 2 hours or so. Then lets say the ACLU stopped them and said they couldn't then after 2 more hours they decide ok lets go get this guy's pot. In four hours time of constant news coverage are you telling me you would be able to get rid of your bag!!! It took us months to get permission from congress to go over there. by that time only complete retards would have kept the weapons. They were destroyed or sold. Lets say there were no weapons. are you telling me the Iraq was a fucking happy ass place where everyone had freedoms etc. Was it cool that anytime Saddam's son needed to get his rocks off that he sent the Republican Guard to a junior or senior high school to pick up a 13 or 14 year old girl for him to have his way with. I bet she was thrilled. I'm sure she was stoned after that for acting like a slut. Women were raped over there then stoned for adultery. I guess that's no big deal to you guys. we should have minded our own business. Were you unaware that was going on over there on a daily fucking basis or do you Liberals get off on 13 year olds too. The ACLU loves to protect the rights over pedophiles like that. I bet 75% of NMBLA members are Liberal and or members. Let me pose the question straight forward to both BILL AND MR NICE for everyone to hear. Say the WMD were never there. If you were educated and had to read these stories every week about rapes the stoning of women and young girls and god knows what else. Combined with the constant refusal for UN inspections would you really not want to kill that SOB? Would you let his son keep raping schoolgirls? Would you let him rape your daughter.

    I agree everyone should work togather and I think Stewart and colbert are funny and bringing up SUM good points. You seem smart enough to admit that Liberals are just as guilty of painting your enemy as evil. Like i said before I respect SUM liberal views. You have to be able to defend them. I don't respect Socialist practices in our republic. There is no question of that. There are numerous prominent liberals that agree that we are and they fully support moving America toward a Socialist state. I question this NEW AMERICA for two reasons. 1. Before The Federal Reserve and other Liberal ideas that changed this country at the beginning of the 20th century. WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE COUNTRY? 2. Why be more like other countries like the UK, Spain, China, and GREECE? It doesn't seem to be working that well. Ask any Brit who has health problems. they hate it. BTW nobody give me any shit like "CHINA'S ECONOMY IS BOOMING" of course it is. If we were socialist and manipulating out currecny we would be blowing them out of the water Im sure. BUT AMERICA is a country for its people and ran by its people. But not for long. Check this out. Obama was quoting the Declaration of Indipendence the other day decided he could change the words because he is infallible. The line is supposed to read: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” But Obama’s recitation left out an important part: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are crated equal. [Long Pause] Endowed with certain inalienable [sic] rights: life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” You really think your better than everyone else when you can just change a founding document anytime you feel necessary. I bet if Bush did this you would be calling for his resignation. This is only the beginning. Have fun with cap and trade and all the other surprises on their way. MR NICE AND BILL: "DAMN I MISSED MY NMBLA MEETING. OH WELL LETS GET THIS FREEDOM LOVING AMERICAN WHO WORKS HIS ASS OFF FOR HIS TWO KIDS THAT HE HAS FULL CUSTODY OF BECAUSE OF THEIR ALCOHOLIC LIBERAL MOTHER" Thank god for libreals or else i may not have me kids 24/7 Peace out bitches I'm going to the gun range.

    I think you may have some issues outside of politics that are more pressing than this silly site. I truly wish you and your kids well. Nothing more important than that. Maybe that's what we should all remember and stow all this vitriol. As for quoting and misquoting important documents, the real origianl line was " life, liberty and the pursuit of property." It was taken almost in whole from.....Locke (?) I think. In any case Jefferson changed happens. As for the Fed? part of the the New Deal. Kept crazy changes in interest from ripping apart the economy. Worked well in simplier times. So question of the week: How does a group of Comic/Movie geeks save the nation? Talk amongst yourselves.

    by Monroville

    Must be the core audience of the website. Anyways: (1) the argument over the numbers of people is rather stupid, as there are photos (which I posted early in the TB) which show how many people were there. Judging by the photos themselves (as opposed to any biased right/left leaning sites), it appears that there are roughly 400 to 600K people there, being that the area around the reflecting pool holds 200K, and the open area to the left roughly 2 to 3 times more area, and is 80 to 90% full. Simply doing the math by the aerial pic, you get the rough number above. BTW, here is the pic again: <p> <p> Now lefties? It is pointless to argue what CBS or whoever posts as to the crowd count, as I can see the photo for myself and at the least make an educated guess as to the real number. You can impugn my education, but there is the photo. <p> Regardless, in the words of a much saner man that most here, why so serious? Let Stewart and Colbert have their shindig; some will go and some will watch, while some go masturbate to internet pornography. Comments will be made and life will go on... maybe (we'll find out in 2 years).

    Reagan came into office with a national debt of less that 1 trillion $, including debt accrued from 2 world wars, 2 cold "wars", the Depression, the New Deal, the Great Society and almost a century of other deficit spending. 8 years later with no wars except Grenada he left office witha national debt of 3 Trillion $. GW Bush came into office with a national debt of 5.5 Trillion $, no wars, no cold war, and a huge surplus. 8 years later he left office with a national debt of 11 Trillion $ and an annual debt of 1.3 Trillion $. So 7.5 of that 13 Trillion $ comes directly from 2 REPUBLICAN administrations. Oh, and for the record, this Fiscal Year's deficit (which is Obama's first full FY) is down 8%.

    Herc, way to go finding the absolute lowest estimate possible

    by Coughlins Laws

    The rally was attended by hundreds of thousands, NOT tens of thousands. UK newspapers estimated the crowds at 1.2 million. NBC News and the New York Times estimated the crowds close to 300,000. There were people all over the mall, both sides of the Reflecting Pool, and on the other sides of the trees on both sides. Any "objective person" would try to be honest and split the difference. Anyone who's ever been to a football game could tell you that there were clearly more people than 78,000 people there. A real "journalist" would split the difference on the estimates. They wouldn't immediately seek out the absolute lowest number they could find. They'd throw out the lowest numbers (78,000) and the highest (1.2 million) and accept that it's somewhere in between, most likely 300,000ish. It really is embarrassing for you that you seem to be so blinded by your hatred of all people conservative that you will purposely grasp on to anything at all you can to try to downplay the groundswell of anger in this country towards "your side" of the political spectrum.<p>Oh, by the way, anyone who thinks that Stewart and Colbert will be able to top the rally that just happened are out of their minds. Just because Stewart is loved by other liberals in the media and liberal journalists, doesn't mean he will be able to get people to come out in the cold in numbers larger than 300,000. I'll even give you 78,000. He will not get more than 78,000. Even CBS won't be able to pretend that he has more than the Beck/Palin rally...

    by Coughlins Laws

    calling others racists with ZERO PROOF, yet they prove themselves do be the least tolerant people in the country. Look at all the hate and venom going on here. 95% of it is from the Left. It's nothing but name calling and baseless accusations. Most of the liberals here REFUSE to debate policy. All they can do is accuse those that disagree with them of racism. Well, guess what, the more you throw that term around with ZERO PROOF of the people you're accusing of being racists, the more people will just tune out what you say. It's "The boy who cried wolf" syndrome. No one is going to believe you anymore when REAL racism actually happens. It's up to almost 60% of the country now who don't think Obama's doing a good job. Are we really ALL racist? Are the 60 million that voted against Obama ALL racist? Are the 70 million that are going to vote Obama out in 2012 ALL racist? When will the charges stop? I disagree with Obama on just about every issue there is. I disagreed with these positions long before Obama ever ran for President. Was I a racist in 93 when I was against Hilarycare? Or am I only a racist now in 2010 when I'm against Obamacare? You know what though, I encourage you to keep calling everyone who disagrees with Obama a racist. Every day it turns more and more people off. And the fact that Obama won't publicly condemn the tarring of his critics as racist by a large percentage of his supporters means that he will ultimately take the blame for it. He is, by proxy, letting us be called racists. He knows he could put a stop to it but the man is a coward who was in know way prepared to have any kind of real job, let alone the Presidency.

    teleprompter more than any President in history!!! He uses them at Press Conferences to answer questions. He uses them to talk to a 6th grade class. He uses them to hold meetings to business leaders. He uses them to give a speech at a rodeo. Bill Clinton didn't need a teleprompter to connect with people one on one. This guy can't do it. Whenever he is off teleprompter or off script, he stumbles his words just as badly as Bush does. Sometimes worse. I think Bush knows there are 57 states.

Yet, the estimates are WAYYYYYY different. Do you really think there were 1,500,000 more people at the Million Man March than there were at the Beck/Palin rally? Really? One of the estimates has to be wrong, then. Either the Million Man March rally was grossly exaggerated, or CBS grossly underrated. Both can't be true.

    SImple fact is

    by Syberean

    Beck picked one of the busiest times of the year in DC to hold his rally. So it is reasonable to assume that some of the people were not there especifically for him, but would have been there at Lincoln's Memorial anyway. Another neglected fact is how many people were there compliments of free bus transport, simply because it was free. The area to the left of the podium was for people cueing (that's lining up) for tickets to federal sites. A condition of Becks permit was to keep his droolers out of that area so as not to impede access. Stewart and Colbert are going to draw their crowd at a time when its going to be cold, has a higher liklihood of raining, most people's vacation time is over, and a shorter day. So the people at their rally will have a higher likelihood of actually being there to hear waht they have to say. Oh yeah, about teleprompters, I prefer to have someone like the president or anyone giving a press conference for that matter to have the actual facts at their immediate disposal and not have to rely on their individual memory. the world is big and the issues are complicated. Some clarity is refreshing. We have tried stupidity as a presidential qualification twice, once with a Democrat, once with a Republican. Both disasterous presidents who managed to get us into wars we'd have been better off not fighting for absolutely wrong reasons. Is it an accident that they were both from Texas? Sorry Harry. Texas is a great state with a lot going for it, a lot more than most states, but y'all put together pretty lousy presidents.

    by ackman81

    Tea party people are conservatives, independents as well as libertarians and conservative democrats who are concerned about the size of the government. They are also concerned about the massive amount of debt, BOTH parties have foisted upon the American people. It's not about the parties it is about getting back to the constitution. Bush was very liberal and spent money like crazy, Obama is a lifelong communist (black liberation theology anyone? Mother a commie, Dad as well as grandparents & everyone who knew in college) who is spending money and amassing power at a rate not seen since Wilson or FDR. America IS a Christian nation because MOST of the religious people who live here are and were Christians, mostly protestant. The qualities that made the country great are largely in line with the way protestants were expected to live their lives; thrift, hard work, self reliance! Don't forget, minding your own f'ing business. Argue about irrelevancies' like Stewart and Colbert all you want, in November, we are going to take back what is ours... And after we gut the government and throw the ant-American leftists out of office, in ten years this will be a free and prosperous nation again. At the ballot box, or on the battlefield.

    I didn't hear ANYONE call Obama anything like that at the rally. I heard socialist, I heard Hitler, I heard many other things, but no nigger or monkey. So let's get something straight, anyone that calls the President any thing like that can be equated to the people calling for Bush to be assassinated. (Actually, I'd say those on the left calling for that were much worse.) But let's not kid each other, anyone doing anything like that are extremists, and they exist on both sides. But back to the main stream rallies, the ones held by the “tolerant” left were just as offensive to Bush as you perceive the anti-Obama rallies to be now. (Actually, I’d say the treatment of Bush for his 8 years by the pubic AND the media was far worse than anything you’re seeing now. Far worse.) My problem is that it doesn’t seem to be equal. When people attack the president now, they are racist, intolerant, anti-American, I could go on and on. Yet, the bumper stickers (Dissent IS American, A village in Texas is missing it’s idiot), protests, and media coverage that attacked Bush was just telling the truth, standing up for people, Patriotic, again, I could go on and on. It just seems like it’s an incredible double standard. The left just doesn’t seem to be able to role with it the way the right had to for 8 years. My guess is you're one of those "tolerant" types.

    Are you truly that fucking stupid? Obama added more to the deficit than Presidents Washington thru Reagan. Why don't you go back to fellating your father and having your pimp pat you on the head for your Obama vote.

    Reagan tripled the debt in his 2 terms. GW Bush doubled the debt and left us with 2 wars and a $1.3 trillion deficit per year after inheriting a surplus. Obama's first full fiscal year has a drop in deficit of 8%.

    by Coughlins Laws

    are calling me an anti-semite when you call me "Father Coughlin". You don't even have the cojones to admit the paralell you're trying to draw by invoking that name. And yes, there are many, many liberals here calling ALL Tea Party members racist. Like I said, keep it up. It's getting to the point no one even pays attention any more when someone says the word. The more you use the word "racist" to describe people that disagree with you politically, the less anyone will pay attention to anything you say.

    Bill Clay, you're just plain wrong. The VAST MAJORITY

    by Coughlins Laws

    of Tea Party protest and signs is NOTHING like you're describing. First of all, almost every sign you see is specifically about policy. Compare that to the signs you saw about Bush with his head chopped off or calling him Hitler (or calling Sarah Palin Hitler). Second of all, we know for 100% certainty that there are several websites on the internet set up and liberal operatives that have been caught on camera trying to crash the Tea Parties and pretend to be racists. Check youtube, you'll find examples. The VAST MAJORITY of all the protest has been specifically about Obama's policies. Sorry, but you're not going to convince people (except those already on the Left) that the Tea Party protestors are racist. It's just not working. I'm really sorry that the guy you voted for has been exposed, but that doesn't make me a racist...

  • Sept. 19, 2010, 7:49 p.m. CST

    i never said you specifically called me a racist and I don't

    by Coughlins Laws

    care if you keep calling me "Father Coughlins". It doesn't really matter at this point. You say stuff like that, and together with most other liberals here, it all kinds of blends into one voice. The point is, you try to shut me down when you say denigrating things like that. That's fine for you. I just prefer when people specifically counter my points with specific details. Prove I'm wrong. Prove you're a mature adult that doesn't have to name call...

    "And J-Dizzle...THis part of the site is about tv, and thest things do make for good tv." <br /> <br /> You're right, they do make for good TV. Kind of like how the Trump v. Rosie O'Donnell made for good TV. Also maybe Paris Hilton v. Lindsey Lohan. The only difference is that the Beck v. Stewart/Colbert feud is basically hidden behind a political facade. Herc, Harry, and co know how a good political bitchfest garners hits for their site. So rather than report REAL TV news such as Andy Whitfield leaving Spartacus due to the return of his cancer, they post this crap.<br /> <br /> "Prediction: you will watch, or you wont watch."<br /> <br /> Won't watch. Didn't watch the Beck one, won't watch this one either. I'd rather not have my intelligence insulted with mindless propaganda drivel.<br /> <br /> "In either event I predict you will citicize Stewart, Colbert, Herc, Harry, or just about anyone better than you."<br /> <br /> A genius like yourself shouldn't need to predict anything considering I've already criticized Harry and Herc, just as other talkbackers have done for various other reasons.

    by Philbert

    In the first 19 months of the Obama administration, the federal debt held by the public increased by $2.5260 trillion, which is more than the cumulative total of the national debt held by the public that was amassed by all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan. Do a little research and stop pulling numbers out of your ass.

    by Talandir

    but unlike you and your CBN sources I'm talking about the real numbers of all debt. Right now we're at appr. $13.5 Trillion. Of that, $10.1 at least is from Reagan Bush and Bush. And that massive deficit under Obama so far? How much of that is paying for Bush's 2 wars that were unpaid for, Bush's 2 tax cuts that were unpaid for, Medicare Pt D that was completely unpaid for and TARP? the fact remains that Reagan was elected promising to reduce the debt and instead he tripled it. GW Bush came into office with a surplus and a debt that was decreasing. He left with double the debt and deficit spending that can't be reduced until we can get out of his wars and undo his irresponsible tax cuts. And if you really think that Obama and the Democrats actually have "control" of the Gov., then why are there over 400 bills sitting in the Senate being Filibustered by the Republicans that have already passed the House.

    The only proof you need to realize that Republicans/Conservatives are uneducated and easily duped: 1% of the American population controls 80% of its' wealth, but pays only somewhere in the neighborhood of 37% of its' taxes. Yet when someone talks about making that 1% pay 38, 39, or god forbid 40% of the nations' taxes, the "base" is quickly whipped into a frenzy of rage over "wealth redistribution" and "socialism" and worried that the "trickle down economics" that have never worked will suddenly continue to not work.... The greatest magic trick the Republican party has ever managed to pull off is convincing middle class white America that they have their best interests at heart. Not that the Democrats are really any better. Ultimately it's all a bunch of rich white people continuing the run the country, one way or another. Those who have the gold make the rules. It's just the delusion of many in America (many of which gravitate to the conservative side) that someday if they just try hard enough they'll break into that top 1% themselves.

    Bwahahaha. And The fucking French did it first too...

    by Cameron1

    I've really enjoyed watching the Tea Party movement in the USA swell from a tiny gaggle of astroturf shysters into great crowds of semi-hysterical, angry suckers. Theoretically enraged by the massive and entirely real expansion of government powers in recent decades, the Tea Partiers have instead offered endless entertainment by losing their damn minds in terror of fictional Communist plots. The last thirty years have seen a gigantic and well-planned heist in which the basis of their economy has been intentionally shifted from production to finance, vastly empowering the nation's royal class and repeatedly kicking the common man in the balls. When the ordinary punters finally decide that enough is enough, they throng together and... Come out, balls bared, shouting please sir, may I have another! in the cause of royalty. Magical. The most entertaining aspect, of course, is the revolutionary sloganeering, those fruity little tricorner hats and the constant invocation of the founding fathers. Entertaining because Jefferson, for instance, would be horrified by the American economy in its relatively sane 1950s guise, let alone the cannibalistic Darwinism of Obama's US. It's been a while since my US history classes, but I recall that Jefferson regarded independence as the essence of liberty. In the 1770s, that meant a nation of farmers and tradesmen who owned their own means of production and were beholden to no man - pretty much the antithesis of a system that demands citizens sell their labour for the best price that a remote and inhuman market determines. The Tea Partiers' free market patter would be barely distinguishable from joyful demands for their own enslavement to the great leaders in whose names they invoke them. As the great philosopher Blade once said, some motherf***ers are always tryin' to ice-skate uphill. I'm a huge fan of democracy, and one of the running themes of this blog has been that, if people know what they want, then they deserve to get it good and hard. So, cheer up! Que sera, sera. Okay, so the Tea Party's peasant revolt for the aristocracy is a genuine, bathetic tragedy for Americans. It's still bloody hilarious for the rest of us.

    The fucking French! How lame are you Tea Partiers?

    by Cameron1

    Sorry, TPers, but the FRENCH were doing this sort of thing in the 1950s, complete with angry little blowhard leader and the exultation of ignorance... Key quotes: Poujadism flourished most vigorously in the last years of the French Fourth Republic, and articulated the economic interests and grievances of shopkeepers and other proprietor-managers of small businesses facing economic and social change. The main themes of Poujadism were articulated around the defense of the common man against the elites. Poujadism denounced the French state as rapetout et inhumain (thieving and inhuman). The defense of the common man lead to antiparliamentatism (Poujade called the Chamber of Deputies "the biggest brothel in Paris" and the deputies a "pile of rubbish" and pederasts) a strong anti-intellectualism (Poujade denounced the graduates from École Polytechnique as the main culprits for the woes of 1950s France and boasted that he had no book learning) So sorry all y'all "real" Americans; nous sommes seulement un bande de Poujadist cons. The only difference is that Pierre Poujade wasn't bankrolled by billionaire Stalin-sucking sociopaths like the Koch family.

    by Cameron1

    I've pointed out how the billionaire-backed "Tea Party" movement is a "peasants revolt for the aristocracy" and a stale retread of 1950s French 'Poujadism'. Now here's a quote summing up the beloved "Libertarianism", the village idiot of anarchism: "Libertarianism is a theory of those who find it hard to avoid their taxes, who are too small, incompetent or insufficiently connected to win Iraq-reconstruction contracts, or otherwise chow at the state trough. In its maundering about a mythical ideal-type capitalism, libertarianism betrays its fear of actually existing capitalism, at which it cannot quite succeed. It is a philosophy of capitalist inadequacy."
