This Week In Crazy: Obama’s Racist Dogs, And The Rest Of The Worst Of The Right

Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Glenn Beck

Right-wing media king Glenn Beck makes his regular appearance in This Week In Crazy with another typically hyperbolic warning to the world: “The Nazis are here.”

Beck made the claim while discussing the violence in Egypt on his Thursday radio show. “It is the Night of Broken Glass,” Beck declared. “The Nazis are here. They have finally walked through that door.”

In true Beck fashion, he became increasingly emotional during his speech, before breaking down in tears and begging for forgiveness from his audience “for being this guy” who interrupts their Thursday with warnings about Muslim Brotherhood Nazis. Towards the end of the speech, a more subdued Beck simply repeated “the hour grows late.”

Of course, Beck’s claim that the Muslim Brotherhood is actually the next Nazi Party would be a lot more convincing if he hadn’t made the same claim about President Obama…and Michael Bloomberg…and Al Gore…and the Peace Corps…and a flight attendant who was mean to him…

    What? Has Glenn Beck given up on communists? I thought they were everywhere. Have they morphed into Nazis? I’m getting whiplash trying to keep up.
    I’m waiting for words of wisdom from LaPierre’s mouth regarding that only good guys with a gun–yada, yada—in view of the heroic lady talking down the last school shooter, and no one getting shot. Nothing could have put a hole in his theory better!

      Have some sympathy there lateblooming. Poor Glenn still has a bad case of Nazi Tourette Syndrome. I still remember when he said that Obama was a racist who hated white people. Well to be fair to the President, every time you listen to Glenn Beck it does get a little easier to hate white people.

    To be honest, my cat may be a xenophobe

    • dtgraham

      A lot of them are like that. I wouldn’t hold it against him. I’ve tried to talk to Marmalade about not being so judgemental and prejudiced towards mice and dogs but I never seem to get anywhere.

    If you think the “no white dogs” crap is the bottom of the barrel, try reading what the Breitbart crowd makes of the dog story. *smh*

    • dtgraham

      They tried to work abortion into the story…somehow. At first I couldn’t find it and was just going to use my sick imagination. The reality was better.

  • idamag

    The thing that makes me sad is that nut job has a following.

    • Irishgrammy

      You are 100% correct idamag!!! The thing that makes me sick….. is they get paid for this nonsense and the following they have…….!!!

      • idamag

        Yes, and after reading everything, I could get my hands on, about Nazi Germany – it is disrespectful to those who suffered the holocaust to bandy the world Nazi around so loosely.

  • Michael Coello

    I still don’t get how the 9 month period a baby takes to form is much more sacred to the religious right than the 70+ years a person actually spends alive.

    Yeah, abortions make people lose sight of the value of human life, not any of the millions of events they have made the already living suffer in the “name of God”.

    • idamag

      Excellent point

  • Pamby50

    Well the newcomer to the list is Vickie Marble. When I saw that name I thought, Who the hell is she? Silly me. Another stupid republican who thinks that only black people eat fried chicken. Wayne LaPierre wants to rant about the government creating a national registery. Well the government didn’t but guess who did? That would be the NRA. And last but not least, The Daily Caller claiming the Obama’s a racist cause they don’t have a white dog. What a joke. Bo is a tribute to President Obama because the dog is black & white.

      Really, the racist dog thing shouldn’t be dignified by an answer, much less a [semi?] serious one.
