At least Howie Kurtz (who I actually have respect for, he normally will point out the hypocrisy of the left)stood up to this small-minded and stupid man. The reality is the left doesn't know what do with a mobilized right. The attacks are going to get bigger and come more often because we have become a mobilized force. I have a friend who was appearing on Fox News while Beck was in the studio. That man travels surrounded by security, why exactly is that? If he is the "terrorist" why would he need the security. Look at the tape of the rally on Saturday. Every time he moved around the stage, at least two different men in black suits moved with him. I don't think anyone on the right is threatening his life.
In the past you could always get the right to show up for a pro life rally and you had a good shot at getting a good number for gun rights. But, not for a whole lot else. We just didn't show up in the streets with signs. Beck is part of that change. Although, he is not the "founder" of the tea party movement. Many on the left don't realize it was Rick Santelli of CNBC that started that. Beck just saw the "tea" leaves and found a way to take that energy that was forming. All he did was tell us we were not alone, we did the rest.
