God talks to Glenn Beck, Rupert Murdoch loves Communists, Comedy and a Volcano - UPDATE: Sara Hickman sings "Palin' By Comparison"!


Texas strikes back!

Some citizen's of Sarah Palin's "favourite state in the lower 48" are sick and tired that Sarah seems to spend more time in Texas these days than with Trig. ;-)

Sara Hickman, the reigning "State Musician of Texas", created an awesome song: "Palin' By Comparison". The video has just been published on youtube a few minutes ago - we received the message via speed dial from Texas! ;-)



Start of main post:

So many things are happening right now in the USA and the rest of the world, that there is no shortage of material for Palingates - which is reflected in the various topics I intend to touch in this post.

First of all, Glenn Beck found God, finally. "Media Matters" reported yesterday that in an emotional message to his listeners of his radio show, Glenn explains that God has given him a plan, that there are no coincidences etc. etc., and he basically says that from now on only God will rule his world. Unfortunately, Glenn Beck in this clip doesn't go on to thank God for the $ 32 million he earned last year, which I think would have been an appropriate thing to do.

This clip really is worth listening to. Glenn Beck sounds like the "male Sarah Palin".

Well, maybe Glenn Beck should now start to pray with THIS MAN...

James Dobson - crazy prayer this apparently is Glenn's "gig" now.

By the way: I don't know exactly when the above picture showing Sarah Palin's new friend James Dobson and some of his followers was taken. I found it once on a blog where it was posted in 2006.

Please don't miss Phil Munger's excellent post about Sarah Palin's highly controversial comments regarding the separation of church and state - a separation, which, in Sarah's opinion, shouldn't exist.

Interestingly, the Palinbots over at creeps4palin were apparently not happy at all that one of their own fans had posted Sarah's complete "Women of Joy" speech on the internet, which partly caused the controversy. After all, if Queen Sarah bans the media, she knows what she is doing! (Which is, of course, trying to conceal her REAL extremist views from the general public.)

Conservatives4Palin - Not happy that video about separation of church & state was published

Or maybe we shouldn't take Glenn Beck too seriously?

After all, he recently said to Forbes magazine: "I could give a flying crap about the political process. We are an entertainment company."

If you also would like to become a right-wing demagogue on Fox News and then as a result hopefully as stinking rich as Glenn Beck, you should obey the following rules:

• First of all, you have to be white. You can't be a black or a Mexican and become a right wing radio TV zealot for Fox News. You must be white, the whiter the better. So white, you practically glow in the dark.
• Next, you need to be chubby. You need to have the kind of face that looks like chipmunks are storing acorns in your cheeks. In a medium that stresses slimness, beauty and glamour, you need to be pudgy. Don't ask why. Just over-eat.
• You must never serve in the military. In the history of Fox, no right wing zealot commentator has ever served in the military. You don't need to, after all, you'll be accusing everybody else of treachery and subversion, while at the same time promoting war, the ultimate perversity. Time in the military is time wasted, a sucker game, not for you, making it harder for you to work your way up from that obscure radio station to the big time as a professional broadcast fanatic on Fox News. Instead, stay in college and get started broadcasting over the college radio, spewing lies about the alleged perverted sexual practices of fellow students. This will develop in you a thick hide and a disregard for the suffering of others and the truth, necessary attributes to be a right wing zealot commentator at Fox.
• Next, learn to ignore history, while twisting the little you actually know. I didn't say study history. Just twist it to suit your ends. This is simple to practice in your college dorm room. Simply stand in front of a mirror, and verbally rehearse disagreeing. Have someone say to you, "the sun came up yesterday." Now say, "No it didn't." Now say, repeat after me, "black is white, square is round, up is down." Look if not forceful, then mean. This will scare some people in your future audience and convince them you know what you're talking about.
• Develop a prospectus, a list of lightning rod issues where it's legitimately one argument against the other, but that you can exploit to whip up fear and hatred, like abortion, or gun control. Write out and memorize mindless statements that condemn the opponents of your position by idiotic inaccurate historical comparisons that seem profound, but really aren't, such as, "Hitler believed in gun control, and so does Obama, so Obama is Hitler." The more of these moronic parables you can commit to memory, the better.
• Never agree to appear on any TV or radio show that is not your own and with someone you know to be intelligent, glib and in opposition to your views. Never, but never.
• Practice looking smug. Fat white cheeks, and smug. Look in the mirror. Are you smug? Remember, as smug as you think you are, you're not that smug on camera. You have to be really smug. Practice it over and again.
• Even though you feel like it, never use the N word to refer to African Americans. Instead, call them the safer "socialist, communist, Al-Qaeda-lover, traitor, subversive, liberal, Bush-Cheney-hater." Constantly be on the lookout for new smear labels. This deflects from the issue at hand and keeps the focus on you and your personality.
• Once you become a success, if you reach a saturation audience rating, in other words, a lot of angry 22-year-old white men named Billy Bob Ray Floyd are listening to you, ask Rupert Murdoch for a raise.
• These are but a few of the principles I outline in my new CD kit and booklet, You Too Can be An Ass. Only $79.95 while supplies last.


Speaking of Glenn Beck's employer Rupert Murdoch: Are we too harsh on him? Isn't he just a businessman, doing his job?

Well, yes, he is. He loves his company so much that on the other side of the globe, in China, Rupert Murdoch has no problems whatsoever to snuggle up to Communists, if it helps his profits. He even goes so far as to condone the Communist party's censorship.

Esquire reports:

However, there is still one powerful American who has extensive connections with communists — not just some communists, but some of the most powerful communists in the world. According to an extensive report in the New York Times, this man has "flattered Communist Party leaders and done business with their children," met repeatedly with senior members of the communist Politburo, "cooperates closely" with communist censors and propaganda networks, and "cultivates political ties" with communists in the hope that they will "insulate his business ventures." Not only that, but he "often supports the policies" of communist leaders and "attacks their critics."

It gets worse. This powerful American has control of a large number of media holdings, and he attempted to curry favor with said communists by ordering one of his book publishing units to release a
volume of communist propaganda glorifying Deng Xiaoping, the heir to Chairman Mao.

Another time, he killed a book deal with the last British governor of Hong Kong because of rumors that it would be critical of his communist business partners. When the story broke, the businessman denied it. Then Business Week
uncovered internal memos that spoke of "corporate worries" that the book would threaten his business interests in China.

And it gets worse still. This powerful American businessman also owns a Chinese television network called Star TV. Once it carried news programming from the BBC. But after the famous incident when communists attacked unarmed civilians in Tiananmen Square, Star TV's BBC affiliate repeatedly showed the
spectacular video clip of a man facing down a tank alone. The communists complained. And the powerful American businessman — who makes a great deal of noise on these shores about being a champion of freedom and free speech and the free market — asked the BBC to stop showing it so often. But the BBC kept airing the clip and the communists kept complaining and finally the businessman ordered his Chinese network to drop the BBC news channel altogether. He insisted this was a business decision and that politics had absolutely nothing to do with it, of course — and, also, the BBC reporters really wanted to spend more time with their families. But subsequently, the supreme leader of the communists praised him for his "objective" approach to Chinese political news.

As I said, this American businessman is a vocal champion of freedom in this country. He owns the Weekly Standard, which supports Bill Kristol and many other influential neoconservatives who are passionately committed to spreading democracy to all oil-producing countries. He put all of his media power behind the Iraq War. He cheered George W. Bush as "a man of great character and deep humility." And he's famously touchy about any criticism of his politics — when The Simpsons ran a parody of Fox News that included headlines like "Do Democrats Cause Cancer?" he threatened to sue the creators of the most successful show in the history of his network.

But his friendly relations with overseas communists have proved lucrative. After killing Star TV's BBC affiliate in order to ingratiate himself with China's communist propaganda ministers, he
established a contract to help design a Web site for CCTV, the giant official Chinese TV network that Time magazine called "the key propaganda arm of the Communist Party." He also helped launch the Web site of the official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party, The People's Daily. He helped the communists develop a television encryption system, which will doubtless prove useful in suppressing dissent in the future. His Chinese version of MySpace obeys all communist censorship laws, even including a built-in link for reporting "inappropriate information" to the authorities. And to smooth the skids on his new ventures, he signed employment contracts with the son of the national propaganda chief and the leadership committee of the Communist Youth League.

Oh, and he also does business with the communist nation of Cuba, which harbors one of the many tax havens where he has hidden cash to avoid American tax laws.

This powerful American friend of communists is, of course, Rupert Murdoch — the man who signs Glenn Beck's paychecks.


Thanks to the constant propaganda, manipulations and lies of Rupert Murdoch's Fox News network, the polls in the USA are starting to look pretty ugly. In a recent large survey, the participants were asked what they think about President Obama. These were the results of ALL participants:

The actual percentages of adults who believe these things are true about President Obama are as follows:

* He is a socialist (40%)
* He wants to take away Americans' right to own guns (38%)
* He is a Muslim (32%)
* He wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a one world government (29%)
* He has done many things that are unconstitutional (29%)
* He resents America's heritage (27%)
* He does what Wall Street and the bankers tell him to do (27%)
* He was not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president (25%)
* He is a domestic enemy that the U.S. Constitutions speaks of (25%)
* He is a racist (23%)
* He is anti-American (23%)
* He wants to use an economic collapse or terrorist attack as an excuse to take dictatorial powers (23%)
* He is doing many of the things that Hitler did (20%)
* He may be the Anti-Christ (14%)
* He wants the terrorists to win (13%)

Well, of course there is always a certain portion of the population that is poorly educated. However, when 20% of all Americans think that Obama is doing many things that Hitler did, when 25% think that he is not eligible to be President and when even 40% believe that he is a socialist, then you know that there is something seriously, seriously wrong.

By the way:

Did you know that pre-nazi Germany, the "Weimar Republic", had their very own Rupert Murdoch? His name was Alfred Hugenberg, he was a fanatical right-winger who built up a huge media conglomerate in Germany in the 1920's. With newspapers, magazines, news agencies and Germany's largest film studio this man heavily manipulated German public opinion and proved invaluable in bringing Adolf Hitler to power - it was Hugenberg's publications which made Hitler, "the nobody", known to the general public. I found an excellent overview in English language HERE.


After so much depressing news, we need a good laugh! The comedian Dorothy Bishop published very funny parody clips about Sarah Palin. The first one is a parody of Madonna's song "Vogue" and the second one is also a real treasure: The mockumentary "Sarah Palin lost in New York".



A reader sent me this unbelievably beautiful collection of pictures, published by the "Boston Globe", regarding the vulcano eruption in Iceland that has been disturbing us so much here in Europe. Planes finally took to the air again today after a break of about one week. TAKE A LOOK!
