SHOUTING HEADS by Elizabeth Searle
Talking- or Shouting– Head, Glenn Beck, was in Joy Behar‘s crosshairs this week when Behar talked of having Beck ‘neutered.’ Earlier this month, Beck urged his followers to ‘eradicate‘ Progressivism. President Obama himself criticized Beck for his on-air ‘vitriol.’
Violence in various forms is all the rage for the GOP. As extremist Tea Party members are linked to vandalism and as Sarah Palin draws fire for using gun crosshairs on her webpage and Tweeting to ‘reload,” Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele is discovered to have spent RNC money on an S&M strip joint in LA.
UrbanDaddy calls the club “a lavish new nightspot suggesting that highbrow elegance and a bit of S&M are not mutually exclusive.” What about high-minded political parties and ‘a bit of’ real-life violence?
Since passage of Obama’s Health Care Bill, violence and vandalism have been traced to hyped-up far-right activists. MoveOn has joined other groups to petition Republican leaders to denounce hate language. Will they?
Meanwhile, on the far-left side of the activist divide, infamous former ‘terrorist’ Bill Ayers was barred this week from delivering a speech at University of Wyoming. The NYT wondered: How much does public talk contribute to real acts of violence?
On a lighter violent note: what is up with luxury and limelight-loving Michael Steele? Are he and his bondage buddies in disgrace? Or should his clubbing expenses be seen– as some want Sarah Palin’s online excesses to be seen– as mere games?
