I remember a time when people still believed that there was a sort of boundary between the mainstream right and bugshit crazytown (you had to tilt your head and squint). It was a gap that spoofers like DougJ used to sneak in some great laughs at rightwingers’ expense. All gone.
Headline at Americablog:
FOX”s Glenn Becks says situation in America: ‘It’s 9/11 all over again except we didn’t have the collapsing building’
DOOCY: Now, he is not a Communist. But you just pointed out that you hold up signs and stuff like that and people make fun of you. What do you think about how some on the other political side have tried to diminish or, you know, or marginalize the Tea Party people?
JACKSON: Well, I guess they’re afraid of the power of our passion and our numbers and, you know, you might not say Communist, but I watch Glenn Beck and he’s taught me well. Progressive is the new word for Communist, but it’s the same goal as government control of everything and it’s very obvious that Obama is trying to do that. And I don’t want to brag, but I sort of called it before he was elected and when I was on O’Reilly and I said he was a Communist and I got a lot of hate mail, but I got some that said I was a prescient which means “a prophet.”
[…] Our government is all evil right now and someone’s got to do something.
Hard times, man.
