Quote# 74401

And Glenn Beck can teach whatever he wants. Got something against self-taught individuals? Like Abe Lincoln? Like Rush Limbaugh, like Sean Hannity. Or are you saying that you have to be a college educated, education major indoctrinated in socialist teaching philosophy, in order to be our sole instructors.

...Glenn Beck never sleeps because he is always reading, reading, reading, learning, learning, learning, and now he has become quite expert in early American history. I would ten times prefer to get my American history from him than some biased, liberal Professor type, and most of the Professors at public institutions of higher learning are exactly that. I know, as I retired from one of those liberal public Universities, and was surrounded by the philosophical political enemy.

Oh, he can teach all he likes. And we don't have to take any fucking notice of his graduates.

Never sleeps, eh? Explains a lot.

Glenn Beck is a troll.

He's a zombie?

I know, as I retired from one of those liberal public Universities

BAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

No, you didn't.

And Beck is a pussy of the first magnitude. But, by all means, please feel free to listen to him spout his facist horseshit. Fortunately for you and Beck, the Constitution guarantees you both the right to be willfully ignorant.

Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck?

Again, BAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Retired janitor.. were you?

@ Jezeus:

C'mon now, don't insult janitors. They perform a very valuable and necessary service. And many of them are just as bright, or brighter, than the people they clean up after.

I doubt flaglady here retired from any university (got fired maybe, but retired? Nah.)

And Glenn Beck's "expertise" on early American history is like my "expertise" on space travel, all of which comes from watching Star Wars. The difference, of course, is that I admit I don't know jackshit about my area of "expertise".

Studies have shown that with lack of sleep, there is an increase of crazy, so I think this guy is right on only one account.

You're comparing assholes like Rush and Sean to Lincoln? GTFO!

And Glenn Beck has been shown to not know shit.

Edit: Am I the only one who thought that "retired" meant that he was a college dropout?

That's a typo, right? You meant "baglady47," didn't you?

I can't wait to see the first "diploma" from Glenn Beck U. First I'll check it for the inevitable misspellings. Then I'll laugh and laugh and laugh. Then I'll find an outhouse and hang it properly on the peg.

Are you really comparing Limbaugh, Hannity and Beck to Abraham Lincoln?

Really, flaglady? Really?

7/10/2010 4:38:16 PM



Abe Lincoln's republican ideals and modern republican ideals are about as compatible as oil and water.

Also Glenn Beck is insane. Completely bat-shit insane. Anybody who thinks otherwise should probably seek help, or a real education, or both.

Abe Lincoln was NOT self taught...the others I cant vouch for.

"Glenn Beck never sleeps because he is always reading, reading, reading, learning, learning, learning, and now he has become quite expert in early American history"

And thats why he cant even get basic political science down, like the differences between progressives, liberal, Marxists, Fascists, Nazi's, etc..he just lumps them all together like any other knuckle dragging conservative would do out of laziness.

If "self-taught" means making it up as you go, and blatantly lying whenever it suits your ideology, then no, that's worthless. Self taught people would fall into two categories: People that actually study from reliable sources and gain knowledge through hard work, and then what Glenn Beck does, which falls under the category of "Bullshit Artist".

Reverend Jeremiah wrote "Abe Lincoln was NOT self taught...the others I cant vouch for."

He himself liked to push that image though. He made a career out of presenting himself as a simple man, born dirt poor in the woods, and having to fight and claw his way through life's hardships. A lot of politicians, including George W. Bush, have used this tactic, because it works very well. People like to think that their rulers are really one of them, even if it's a blatant lie.

Beck said he got his ideas and knowledge of history by studying - {wait for it} at the public library.

Did she just compare Beck to Abe Lincoln? Holy fuck balls.

"And Glenn Beck can teach whatever he wants."

If some college is stupid enough to hire him as a teacher, that's true. Sad, but true.

"Got something against self-taught individuals? Like Abe Lincoln?"

Not Lincoln, no.

"Like Rush Limbaugh, like Sean Hannity."

Yes, Limbaugh and Hannity are blow-hard a**holes more in love with their own voices and the money they can make with them than with doing what's right for society.

"Or are you saying that you have to be a college educated, education major indoctrinated in socialist teaching philosophy, in order to be our sole instructors."

Yes, in formal education, I think one should probably be college educated, not necessarily an education major, not necessarily a socialist or a philosopher.

What are "sole instructors?"


"...Glenn Beck never sleeps because he is always reading, reading, reading, learning, learning, learning, and now he has become quite expert in early American history."

Just because they may have read SOME books doesn't mean they read GOOD books nor that they actually understand what was important in what they read nor that they understand the ramifacations the events had on history. One can do something for decades and still not be doing it right.

"I would ten times prefer to get my American history from him than some biased, liberal Professor type, and most of the Professors at public institutions of higher learning are exactly that."

Translation: I would rather hear someone tell me the story I want to hear than to tell me the truth.

"I know, as I retired from one of those liberal public Universities, and was surrounded by the philosophical political enemy."

Yes, truth does usually have a liberal bias.
