Glenn Beck: The Last Refuge of a Scoundrel

August 31, 2010

Silverwolf doesn’t forget. He hasn’t forgotten that Glenn Beck, as part of his and Fox News’ attempt to tarnish Congressman Ron Paul during the presidential campaign of 2008, had Glenn Greenwald on his television show labelling the Mises Institute, and by name and implication Congressman Ron Paul who is a member of it,  as a terrorist organization. Beck didn’t mind working for Fox when it excluded Dr. Paul from its “Candidates Debates”, although that certainly abridged  his Property Right to his freedom of speech as a major Republican candidate for the Presidency. Those Property Rights, which Beck is now always braying about in their sacredness, didn’t mean a pissant’s spitball to Beck when the company he works for, and he himself, were blackballing the good Congressman. And he actually promoted the Corporate-Communist line, which he now rants against, prior to seeing Ron Paul get over 25% of the vote in the west, when he publicly supported the Bush-Democrat-rammed-through Bank Bailout Bill. So the guy’s a stinking big-government-socialist whore himself when it’s to his convenience.

But like all political whores, once he saw how popular Ron Paul’s Libertarian “Return to Jeffersonian Principles and the Free Market” message was with a large swathe of the voting public, he jumped on the anti-Collectivist bandwagon.

Now, of course, he’s a “Libertarian”, although he talks of Patriotism, glorification of the military, overthrowing the separation of Mosque and State that Jefferson so ardently championed and defended, and saw so clearly was vital to this Republic and its Constitution, and “national honor”, terms used by the War Criminals on both sides in World War One, who butchered so many millions of young men from England, France and Germany. Now, once again, Beck is spreading that poison.

However, that is not the main thrust of this essay, but rather with the fact that back in June, Glenn Beck promoted the works of a notorious Nazi-lover and Jew-hater, Elizabeth Dilling. Beck told people to read Dilling’s book, The Red Network, and promoted her on his radio show, which is heard by millions of Americans, and claimed her as some kind of hero for supposedly exposing Communists during the 30’s. He amazingly overlooked the fact that she was a member of the  Nazi front organization, the German-American Bund prior to the war, wrote in favor of the Nazis, and was tried for Sedition in 1944 for trying to aid the Nazis by undermining the Allied effort. Her writings are filled with hatred for Jews; she was a propagandist for the Nazis in the vein of Jules Streicher. Yet, this is the Nazi Racist whom Glenn Beck goes on radio and television and promotes to the public, as “someone with a lot of good things to say”.

When Beck was called on this, he said he hadn’t actually read the book, or gone into Elizabeth Dilling’s background as a Nazi, someone who had succeeded in helping to murder 40 million innocent people on the continent of Europe, and ruin and disrupt the lives and hundreds of millions of other people.

Glenn Beck has praised and told his listeners to read someone who was a Nazi, and the Nazis, Beck may remember, were not only Racists and War Criminals, but  also Collectivists and Socialists. They also murdered several million children. These are facts.

The fact that Beck can go on national television and radio and shill for the Racist Miscreant Dilling, a Nazi who helped murder millions and promote racism and violence, and then say he was not aware of her background, shows that he is either a racist or, if we accept his argument that he didn’t even bother to investigate her background, then someone who is so slapdash and irresponsible in his due diligence and responsibility to the public as a recognized public talk show host, that he should have no credibility left. Like maybe someone who is lazy and only wants a lot of money handed to them for slapping their lips together for ten minutes or so, once a day.  Anyone who would continue to listen to the bullscat coming from such a source after such horrendous actions as Beck’s attempted character-assassination of Dr. Paul and the Mises Institute and his promotion of the writings of  Nazi Miscreant and rabid Jew-hater, Elizabeth Dilling  is either someone of feeble intellect, a racist, or someone who will overlook morally contradictory behaviour in their leaders and spokesmen for the sake of convenience. In effect, they have destroyed the Libertarian concept of the Integrity of Principle in Politics.

The best thing the Free Market could do, would be for the sponsors of Beck’s Fox programs to “disassociate their commercial intercourse” with the company unless Beck’s worthless, racist-promoting garbage show is pulled off the air. Beck is tainting Libertarianism with toleration of racists, and discrediting the anti-Collectivist movement with those cornerstones of Collectivism, those vague, indefinable concepts like faith, religion, patriotism and honor, that have been used since time immemorial to whip up men into war and religious massacres. Beck is continuing to promote this vomit.

Of course, about six months back, Silverwolf started hearing about a new organization coalescing, founded by Glenn Beck, the 9/12 Movement. He glanced at its so-called “principles”, and it was the eternal pablum of all big-government collectivists who are on top of it religio-fascists — the worst of both world. Again, the bullscat terms that have been used throughout history, so vague as to be utterly meaningless, like honor, patriotism, and faith, and which have perpetrated the most cruel horrors on millions and millions of innocent humans through history, were right there in black and white, and religion was right at the top, showed that this was just another American-Taliban scheme of the American Religious Collectivists on the Right wing, like the so-called “Constitution Party”, an oxymoron if we ever heard one, who want to overthrow separation of church and state, and establish America as a “Christian Nation”, instead of a Jeffersonian-Libertarian-Capitalist Nation.

A great Libertarian — a True Libertarian — named Mark Twain once said, “Patriotism is usually the last refuge of the scoundrel.”

When it comes to Glenn Beck, Twain hit the nail on the head.
