TOWN HALL ATTENDEE: I noticed that you have the book “Common Sense” with you today, I hope you share it with a lot more of those 535 people.
GRASSLEY: Well the reason I brought it is you’re supposed to pass it on to other people when you’re not reading it.
I’ve had about enough of the whole Senate Finance Committee, but Senator Grassley takes the cake with this one.
I wonder what else Beck sells that Grassley buys?
Senator Grassley actually read this Piece Of Shit?
After the town hall, Thinkprogress.org reports that Senator Grassley gave them an autographed copy of Glenn Beck’s new book and said “It’s something you gotta read a couple of times.”
I assume that it is one of those books where they ask you questions and you go to different chapters to follow different storylines, and each storyline has a different ending where the world ends thanks to us no good reverse racist fascist neo-Nazi progressive socialists Democrats.
Did Senator Grassley actually pay for this garbage?
So, if Senator Grassley is endorsing Glenn Beck’s new book, Common Sense (which, presumably one lacks if they are reading it.), I wonder if Senator Grassley endorses these other classic asshat Glenn Beck statements.
more below the fold
“This guy (President Obama), is, I believe, a racist.”
“Barack Obama said ‘You want to know my policies, then you have to look at the people I surround my self with, and I surround myself with these people’
So I said, ‘Let’s look at health care’
Who is he surrounding himself with? People, the czars. The people who want to
Sterilize the drinking water
Take babies away from unfit parents
uh, a sliding scale where a two year old is not worth as much as a fifteen year old
and a 85 year old, you got to have fourteen 85 year olds to equal one teenager.
Now, is that, is that trading in fear(?).
Beck: “May I make a connection and see if anyone agrees with me? Holdren is the key to understanding the green movement. How many people in the green movement, Holdren says that we should have forced abortions, the population is too big. How many people in the green movement think people are a virus? I think that is a connection. Anybody?
There really is too much of Glenn Beck’s noxious, paranoid bullshit to point out and debunk in one diary (or in one lifetime, for that matter), but the pretended poisoning of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the matter of calling our first African American President a racist who hates white people top the charts.
So, here is my question for Senator Chuck Grassley.
Dear Senator Grassley,
Does your endorsement of Glenn Beck’s new book also mean you endorse the fact that he called our President a racist who hates white people, his constant comparison of Obama and Democrats to Nazi’s, his feigned poisoning of Speaker Nanacy Pelosi and the rest of his nonsense?
Are you, Senator Grassley, calling President Obama a racist as well via your endorsement?
And do you have the intestinal fortitude to denounce Glenn Beck and his rhetoric, or are you too afraid to stand up to him and his rabid base?
Because, if you can’t stand up to Glenn Beck, how can you be considered to stand up for any of your voters?
E-mail Senator Grassley through this link here
Not that there is any doubt about who Senator Grassley truly stands for, the Special Interests that bought his soul long ago and pull his strings to this day.
I also have a question for the Democrats in the House and Senate.
Dear Congressmen/Senator —–
Will you publicly vote to condemn Glenn Beck for suggesting that the first African American President in U.S. history is a racist who hates white people, jesting about poisoning Speaker Nancy Pelosi and comparing Democrats and their supporters to Nazi fascists?
If not, why?
Because, if you can not stand up to a twit and hate mongerer like Glenn Beck, how can we as your supporters expect you to stand up for us?
Contact the Democratic Leadership and your Representative in the House here, and demand a formal condemnation of Glenn Beck and an end of to this Bi-Partisanship with NO!
Contact Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi [D-CA8] by E-Mail here
Contact House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer [D-MD5] by E-Mail here
Contact House Majority Whip James Clyburn [D-SC6] by E-Mail here
If you wish to contact your own Representative , you can search for their contact information here or call (202) 225-1904.
Conatct your Senators here to demand an official condemnation of Glenn Beck, as well as to demand an end to the farce of Bi-Partisanship with the Party of NO! that compares Democrats and our President to Nazi’s.
And be sure to remind them how much they must have enjoyed the screaming loons riled up by Glenn Beck that Senator Grassley’s obstructionism allowed to shout in their faces this August.

After a week where Senator Grassley (Fink-AEIU) has perpetuated the grandma’s gonna die myth, boasted about slowing down the Health Care bill and taken credit for the halt of progress on that bill, I expect a major asskicking of GOPosaurs and an end of shoot yourself in the foot bi-partisanship on the part of Congressional Democrats and the Whitehouse.
Oh, they can prattle on about it for the cameras all they want, but behind the scenes I expect to see a total halt to GOP amendments and other compromises. You can not compromise with NO!, it just doesn’t work.
But, a part of me has a special reason for this call to action. It is time for Progressives in and out of Congress to FIGHT BACK, and to YELL, not only Louder, but Smarter.
I hope you will join me in doing so. If not now, when?
And to Senator Grassley and his new best friend Glenn Beck, I have a two word explanation for what can be done with Mr. Beck’s new book.
