  1. RE: “ ‘The Glenn Beck Program,’ probably above and beyond any on television, has denounced violence repeatedly,” Mr. Cheatwood said.
    “Drink Responsibly” – the alcoholic beverage industry
    “Play Responsibly” – the gaming (gambling) industry
    “Act Responsibly”(not like I keep telling you to act) – Glenn Beck

  2. Thanks, Richard, for bringing this to our attention.

    If someone like myself, pretended to be a grad. student and wormed my way into the home of oy, I cannot think of a right-wing counterpart to Frances Fox Piven, but there are many, Glenn Beck and his ilk would spout volumes of righteous horror and victimhood.

  3. Russell Jacoby put it simply: “The triumph of stupidity in the face of nothing that opposes it”.

    Beck, who has the brains and ethics of a pet rock, has been howling about Fran Piven’s writings from 1966 – 68. That’s right: you have to dig back 45 years to finds the books that put Beck into such a frenzy.

    Oh, and Jacoby was writing against the revival of interest in Stalin. Beck, and those Beckites I’ve met, even make the mid-70s Maoists/Stalinists seem like deep thinkers.

  4. What is truly annoying about Beck is that he is an ex-morning zoo FM radio DJ with no real background in politics, and yet he is on Fox News. I blame the repeal of the FCC’s “fairness doctrine” in the 1980s; with it gone people like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck were inevitable.

    I hope Professor Pivin is left alone.
