Update – We received this “tweet” from Katy Abram, this afternoon. My apology in this particular instance, to Glenn Beck. I don’t wish to become a “watchdog” about him. I do however, question his treatment of patriot researchers and bloggers, including what ridicule has been heard directly from his mouth — also, his significant lacking of accreditations and interviews, in his broadcasts — also his decisions to compete with these rather than to support, with his Internet news venture. This morning, he spoke of his making citations and in his book, footnotes. To fail to accredit the works of others, as well as to cite original information hurts the movement to preserve America. In Beck’s case, it also detracts from the credibility of his pronouncements, some of which are very critically important for the future of our nation and the world. Perhaps his performance will improve, on the air, where most observe him. — Arlen Williams

Socialists and Communists: Coming out of the Closet
I have come to believe we live in the Twilight Zone. During the past few days two videos had come to my attention which almost made my jaw drop to the floor. The socialists and communists are coming out of the closet, outing themselves.
Last Thursday, a communist commercial (or as I prefer to call it: propaganda) surfaced. It starts out with a sweet lady saying she likes to scrapbook. Wow, I do too! But in her next statement she tells the viewers that she is a communist. I did a double take and watched as one after another fellow communists depicted how average they are, but that they have chosen to be communists.
When I thought things couldn’t become any stranger Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC verified something I had always thought about him.
This past Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Lawrence O’Donnell and blogger Glenn Greenwald had a heated exchange which resulted in O’Donnell proudly leaping out of the proverbial socialist closet:
If you were listening to Glenn Beck on his morning radio program, you may have heard him refer to these instances.
Oddly, I did not hear Mr. Beck credit Katy Abram, rather, by default he seemed to assume credit for just kind of knowing these factoids. That seems to fit the pattern I wrote about yesterday. So, I asked Mr. Beck about this, in a “tweet.” Now, by that I do not wish to detract from your paying attention to Glenn Beck — in fact, I’m calling your attention to him and the full set of his behaviors. Personally, I have rarely listened to his radio program and suggest it be heard not infrequently. His information is at the cutting edge — well, not that it can be called “his information.”
I also strongly suggest you watch Beck’s television expose’ of George Soros, beginning tomorrow.
Do you remember, around this time two years ago, how U.S. Rep. Paul Broun and U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann were called in on the carpet and Republican=Reprimanded for calling Barack Obama’s worldview, “Marxist?”
So, now we have Marxists coming out and calling themselves the same, whichever synonym they may choose.
So, when will the Republicans stop knuckling under?
When… will… Republicans… stop… knuckling under… to global… Marxism….
