Minor Matters

More than a tweet. Less than a big read.

Last Friday in the Jewish Report I saw an ad for Glenn Beck’s appearance in a synagogue in Cape Town last night (Thursday). This is the man who once had a TV show on Fox and is well known for his controversial views, and his “classic anti-Semitic tropes.” He recently attacked George Soros as a manipulative puppet master who is deliberately destroying America’s economy so as to impose a totalitarian one-world government.
Fresh from a trip to Israel where in the newspaper Haaretz, Yossi Sarid called him a “charlatan-entertainer-mediaman”, he came to SA to deliver an address called “Why I stand with Israel”.
In Israel he held three rallies designed said Michelle Goldberg in The Daily Beast to recast himself as a great champion of the Jews, united with Israel in a coming global war with the Islamist and socialist hordes.
Did anybody attend the Cape Town event? Can somebody report back on his content, delivery and integrity? I am curious.

On his website he was quoted saying:

“We are in Cape Town, South Africa. South Africa, unfortunately, in the past, probably best known for Apartheid over the world. No longer. They have corrected the mistakes of the past and are moving forward as a new country united and they shook this evil without revolution, a remarkable people and a remarkable land,” Glenn said.

“Apartheid is going to play a role in the conversation of the world again, but they’re going to blame Israel for Apartheid and we’re here to set the record straight on what Apartheid was and what it is and is it happening in Israel or not. That’s why we’re here and then tomorrow we’re going to be in South America.”

“By the way, Apartheid solved in South Africa peacefully,” he added. “We should figure out how South Africa did that. Huh? People classified into population groups including skin color, their classification determined their wages, their pensions, their jobs, their schools, and their living area. That was South Africa.”

This is the ad for his Thursday night speech:

Glenn Beck spoke to a mixed audience of over 700 Jews and non-Jews on Thurs evening. His message was a call to respect human rights as well as a call for peace, where he described how Lech Walesa, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King had all chosen love over hate and, thereby, averted the deaths of thousands. Glenn’s message called for support for Israel, a bastion of human rights where women can drive or walk the streets alone and *** people can live freely without fear of being stoned to death.

Jackie, Google Jon Stewart on Glenn Beck. Some brilliant and hilarious video clips of Stewart taking Beck apart. Beck is a proper loony – even Fox News was embarrased by his crackpot ideas. And that’s saying a lot!

The left wing socialist media do their best to make Beck look crazy, misquoting and perverting what he says. Beck tells the truth. And George Soros is a meddling globalist tying to destroy the American economy and set up a “new world order” (his words). Learn everything you can about Soros and his agenda.

I have been following American politics for awhile, more for how useless it is. Having listened to several of Glenn Becks rants, I can honestly say is should be a loony bin. Here are good ones, http://politicalhumor.about.co.....quotes.htm
