stfu Glenn Beck

hate this loser

More and more, right-wing talk show hosts are bringing race-based fear

mongering into the mainstream, but FOX's Glenn Beck just took it to

another level. On Tuesday, Beck said:

"This president has exposed himself as a guy over and over and

over again who has a deep-seated hatred for white people... this guy

is, I believe, a racist."[1]

It's part of a larger argument Beck has been making[2]: that

President Obama is using the White House to serve the needs of Black

communities at White people's expense. This kind of talk stirs up

fear, hate, and it can lead to violence.[3,4]

Together we can stop Glenn Beck.[5] On Thursday, we started calling

Beck's advertisers, asking them if they want to be associated with

this kind of racist hate and fear-mongering. When they see tens of

thousands of people signing on behind that question, we believe

they'll move their advertising dollars elsewhere, damaging the

viability of his show and possibly putting him out of business.

All it requires is you, standing up and being counted. Please take

a moment to join the effort, and invite your friends and family to do

the same:

Glenn Beck is appealing to the worst in America. Of course, some

people refuse to accept the fact that our president is Black or the

idea that he could truly serve all Americans. We know that. The only

way these views will fade away is if they're not reinforced by

mainstream society. Instead, folks like Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs,[6] and

Rush Limbaugh[7] are exploiting racism and race-based fear to bump

their ratings, stirring up racial discord in the process.

The dangers of these tactics are real. We saw the same dynamic during

the presidential race: by the end, the McCain/Palin campaign was

unable to control the violent energy whipped up by their race-baiting.

The result was an unprecedented number of threats on Obama's life, a

rise in the number of hate groups, and an increase in the number of

threats and crimes against immigrants and Black people.[8,9,10]

FOX has had a long history of race-baiting and racism on its shows,

and we've run campaigns calling them out.[11,12] But Glenn Beck

appears to be taking the network to an even lower standard. He's

trying to divide and distract America when we should be coming

together and talking about issues that really matter--like health care

and the economy.

The good news is that we have the power to stop this. All major media

is funded by advertising. And advertisers, more than anything, care

what consumers think. If we want to change what's happening and put an

end to folks like Glenn Beck having a platform, we can do it.

It's up to us, and it can start now. Please join us:

I was thinking, Glenn Beck seems pretty pro-Libertarian. Maybe we can get him to plug the FSP on his show on Foxnews, or better yet, interview Jason or someone else who is prominent in the FSP? _______________________________________Website I designed for payday loans for canadians company.
