Beck loses it, and justifiably so…

If you haven’t seen it yet, you’ll hear about it eventually:
Yes, he flips. Now, this is Glenn Beck, and we’ve come to know him as someone who does not reign in his emotions. He responds without concern about what others think. This is a turn-off to some who think it reflects poorly on his public image and tarnishes the power of the points he makes. Others admire his unabashed openness. I understand both perspectives, but lean more toward the latter. That aside, may I point out a few things?
The woman came on with an attitude from the beginning. She was not looking to have a civil discussion with Beck. She was goading him seconds into the call. Referring to “people like you” before her first point was made was asking for a fight. She accused him of having no logic, and asked “what the hell is wrong with you?” She shifted between fifth gear and reverse to try to manipulate the conversation. The topper, though, was after all of this baiting and prodding, she had the audacity to accuse him of never addressing the bailouts and spending of late, when it’s been his most discussed topic, as anyone who ever listened to his radio show or watched his television show for 15 minutes would know.
Then again, one reproduced link of this clip on YouTube actually stopped the audio right before discussing the situation in Massachusetts, and simply put up text which said “F*** what happened in Massachusetts”. That kind of refusal to address the reality of health care shows that many of these people aren’t even worth engaging. You’d be better off telling a spoiled child why they can’t have whatever they want.
However, I have to admit, this is pretty funny:
Recently in the Green Room:
- Obligatory Bill Clinton drew pictures of man parts on classified documents post
- Winning entry for HHS’s ObamaCare propaganda video contest: “Forget About the Price Tag”
- The Ed Morrissey Show on hiatus
- Health records ‘data security,’ Canada-style
- Good news from Piers Morgan: Obama’s a perfect physical specimen
