Ed Schultz, Fine Gentleman of TV and his Intelligent viewers and commentators about his show - Intelligent America speaks out against Imbecility
Ed Schultz says Glenn Beck of Fox News comes from an FM shock jock culture, he says nowhere in is background is he a credited news man.
According to Wikipedia : "Shock jock is a slang term used to describe a type of radio broadcaster (sometimes a disc jockey) who attracts attention using humor that a significant portion of the listening audience may find offensive. The term is usually used pejoratively to describe provocative or irreverent broadcasters whose mannerisms, statements and actions are typically offensive to many listeners."
Some of the Comments of Ed's Viewers are Filthy Diatribes against Ed, but others show that there is an Intelligent America.
I guess most of Ed's Viewers are White People, but this is a wild guess and I can't prove it. But my Wild Guess serves me to understand that these Hate Merchants will fall like their grandfather the Nazi Priest, Father Charles Edward Coughlin had millions of listeners in the 1930s. When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor this antiSemites was erased from the scene, nobody believed in his garbage again, or in his diatribes against Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
You do not have to be "colored" to smell the stench of Imbecility and Racism !
I extract some of the best comments of Ed's Viewers on Glenn Beck and Fox News, very intelligent Comments, a great pleasure to read them !

Posted by Rex, Moorhead :
"Glenn Beck is one of those brave Fox News commentators that wraps himself up in the flag but never spent a day on active duty much less in a combat zone where real enemies shoot back with real guns and bombs. His bravery to his country is on par with Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity having the distinction of having never served a day on active duty yet acting like they are the friends of the military wrapping themselves up in the flag."
"Funny none of them have left their multi-million dollar jobs so they could join the military. They also bravely took those Bush tax cuts during a time of war such is their notion of sacrifice."

"Glenn Beck as are most of his friends at Fox flag wavers. they ralley around the flag until it is time to defend it. Then they pull out their check books and give donations that they get back at the end of the year. yes this is a great Nation. what other country would you be able to dodge the draft, snort drugs, traffic drugs, and trash the President a racist on television in front of maybe millions of viewers and continue to make a living and a damm good one at that. Only Sean, Glenn, and Rush could pull that off. One more thing, in what other country could you get 5 draft deferals and later as vice president send others children off to fight and die ?"

"Have people forgotten that President Obama is one half White? How is it that in our national language and definitions related to race we fail to acknowledge that?
In our thoughts and national language if a person is one half Black and one half White, we almost uniformly categorize that person as being Black or bi-racial but never, not in our wildest dreams, do we say that person is White. Why is that Ed?"
"Pres. Obama is equally White as Black. What is in our thinking, our concepts and dialogues about race that we seemingly, cannot even conceive of the idea that Pres. Obama is a White man? Is it because we, as a people, still believe in the tenets of White superiority that dictate maintaining the "purity of White race/blood" such that one drop of Black makes the person Black? Isn't that racist thinking?"
"Please help me understand why we persist in subscribing to the "one drop rule". Isn't that subscribing to racist thinking at a core and fundamental level? Not until we, starting with thinkers in the media and academia, begin a national discourse that de-constructs the myths, and meanings about race, will we ever move past the potential and probability of continued misunderstandings and inflammatory race speech."
