Who Owes Who An Apology, Mr. Olbermann?

Graphic by darthdilbert

It didn't take long before the Tea Party and the right wingers were blamed for the shootings that happened yesterday in Tuscon, AZ.

Keith Olbermann, in his infinite wisdom asininity, specifically targets Glenn Beck and compares him to shooter, Jared Lee Loughner.  Loughner wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and murdered 6 people during an event with voters outside a grocery store.  Olbermann tells Beck to apologize for his rhetoric that incites violence.

Is this the rhetoric that Mr. Olbermann accuses Beck of spreading?

...or this?

...or is it The Non-Violence Pledge that Beck asks everyone to sign?

It's obvious that Beck has gone out of his way over the past couple of years to discourage violence and vehemently denounce it.  I have heard him speak on this subject many times on his radio and TV shows, always warning against acting out in violence and rage.

So, I think the person who should be apologizing is you, Mr. Olbermann.  You owe Glenn Beck an apology.


  1. One other thing that is being conveniently ignored. The shooter was left leaning.

  2. I don't think we better hold our breath waiting on that apology.

  3. I agree completely Lady. I refuse to watch his venomous show. I don't want his network to think he gets one more viewer than he deserves.

  4. Funny how he Olbermann says we need to come together to condemn this shooter, yet blames Palin/Beck/etc for it.

    His definition of "coming together" must be different that mine.

  5. I have heard him speak on this subject many times on his radio and TV shows, always warning against acting out in violence and rage.

    I don't follow Glenn Beck very closely, so I was unaware of his warnings.

    The few times that I have watched his show, he does seemed ramped up. So maybe that's why I have been unaware of his words.

    In any case, most of those opposed to Beck will not even watch him -- at least, not for long. Closed minds.

    I heard that, too. Two of his favorite books..."The Communist Manifesto" and "Mein Kampf".

  7. Gorges:
    I'm not holding my breath, that's for sure.

  8. Odie:
    I can't stomach MSNBC either. During the 2008 Presidential election, I used to flip back and forth between MSNBC, CNN and Fox to see how things were being covered. It's like being in the Twilight Zone.

  9. Blue-Eyes:
    Olber-moron's "coming together" means "everyone agrees with him".

  10. AOW:
    Beck does have a different way of getting his message across sometimes, but I think he is very effective. It's like being in a classroom. If he get's "ramped up", it's usually over something totally outrageous that isn't being covered by anyone else in media. He has made a point of talking about non-violence because he predicts that violence is just what the progressives want so that they can clamp down on us.
    I would recommend watching his show more often. You may be very surprised at what you don't know. He backs everything he says with videos, and with the words of the people he is exposing. He also tells his audience to do their own homework and not just take his word for it. I thank God for Beck because he has brought to light so many things we would never had known. He's also the spark that began the awakening of the "sleeping giant" with his "We Are Not Alone" and "9/12 Project".
    He's gotten a bad wrap, just like Sarah Palin. That's because the Left fears the truth both of these patriots tell.

  11. Sadly, since the left is "reality impaired," there will be no apology.

  12. Matt:
    "Reality Impaired"...I like that. And you are right. No apology is on the horizon.
