Mexican Drug Cartels in Sioux Falls?

While I think Beck is a Shitbag, this story was reported by several other news organizations, including CNN. I’m just wondering when our MSM will wakeup and talk about it.

I watch Glenn Beck with the sound off. I’m convinced he has worked as a mime.

Name 8 things Beck has been wrong on in the last 2 years, not opinions I want factual wrongs.

Here are two stories

Why eight?
Why not start with one, and work your way up to stupid?

#5 owk on 12.15.09 at 9:05 pm

There’s the first one that can’t name even one wrong and attacks like usual, next. Why not 8? Anyone can name one thing, again next.

I guess I missed those KELO stories, thanks Ben.

There have been two large federal drug conspiracy cases with alleged ties to Mexican drug dealers going on for the past year or so in the Federal District Court for the District of South Dakota in Sioux Falls. The initial arrests garnered quite a bit of local media attention but the court cases haven’t received much attention. Most of the defendants have taken pleas. One of the cases is scheduled to go to trial after the first of the year with the defendants have haven’t taken pleas.

I’d transport drugs if I were a mexican national. They’re caught, deported, and Mexico turns them loose. They’re back across again with more drugs in less than a month. If you’re a US citizen with a small amount of illegal drugs, you do 20 years.

Beck is a doucebag and a moron. If you are too stupid to see that he’s just a clown playing for an audience, then you might as well make yourself a “keep the government out of my medicare” sign and join the teabaggers, who seem to think he’s the savior of the country – right up there with Palin and Bachmann.

I don’t watch Beck so I wouldn’t know where to begin with factual wrongs.

BTW, moron, have you invested any money with Goldline? Amazing how the price/demand for gold goes up every time people get scared. Amazing how their spokesnozzle has his own shows on TV and the radio where he scares gullible people about the future of our economy and country…

Nope, no conflict of interest at all. Nosiree.

Heh – I googled “Glenn Beck is” and the results were awesome.

And yes, one of the results was “a liar” with thousands of links.

owk, first of all what gives you the right to dictate who someone can like or dislike? Does the fact that Beck’s factual statements might be accurate most of the time make any difference when his show is formed from 90% of mere opinion?

The fact is – the primary reason people dislike Beck is because he presents his opinions as facts, so in that case they have every right to believe what they wish. Second, like many other talking heads on Fox News, he purposefully attempts to blend legitimate news with opinion and commentary, and that ends up confusing the sheep who are listening to him.

Third, you comment doesn’t even make sense. You are assuming people don’t like Beck because he lies – but I don’t recall seeing anyone say that. I would argue more people dislike his incendiary nature much more than the fact he tells a fib here and there.

But hey – since you’re obviuosly too damn lazy to do a quick Google search, here are a few examples of Beck being wrong. Factually wrong in fact.

You did say eight right?

Of course Beck merely telling a lie here or there or just being wrong isn’t the issue. The fact that he makes comments about Obama being racist and having a hatred for white people is what has led to people to shake their heads and wonder what he is thinking, and what lead to so many advertisers (at least 15 different companies) to pull their ads from his program.

The fact is people can like or dislike who they choose… but it might not always be because they are a bold faced liar or because they are found to be factually incorrect on a regular basis (although in Beck’s case who really knows as it is clear he is full of it quite often).

So I guess you just need to STFU since you clearly have no idea what you’re talking about.

Yes, this story is a sad and reflective of a growing problem.

But I did laugh at the irony that Fox News had to use an artist rendition of the US map. The whole country was askew like their reported news. Oh wait, maybe the map of the US was just an expression of an opinion?

#13 owk on 12.16.09 at 3:39 pm

Your post is irrelevant since you don’t watch Beck then call him a douche bag and moron, that makes sense? Costner, where did I say I’m dictating anything? What gives you the right to speak on behalf of the people? Besides, I asked a ? then you attack, good job. Also, you proved me wrong using a bunch of .com sites, damn you Costner, damn you.
PS I hated Waterworld!!! Dances w/Wolves, not so bad.

#14 Costner on 12.16.09 at 3:41 pm

Also, you proved me wrong using a bunch of .com sites, damn you Costner, damn you.

Well I thought about using .biz or .edu websites, but .com was just soooooo much easier.


#15 Ghost of Dude on 12.16.09 at 3:44 pm

Your post is irrelevant since you don’t watch Beck then call him a douche bag and moron, that makes sense?

I watched enough of his idiotic show to know that he’s a douchebag and a moron – barely one step above any douchy morning radio show shock-jock on any given local radio station.
Occaisionally when I’m at the gym, someone will be watching Fox News on one of the TVs when he comes on. I’ll read the captions for comic relief when the TV I was watching is on a commercial.
Beck is an overpaid clown who panders to an audience who he knows will fall for his act. The fact that you take him seriously calls your intelligence into question.

#16 Costner on 12.16.09 at 3:59 pm

I think you forgot to post that under your alter-ego dude.

What is this… amateur hour?

#17 Costner on 12.16.09 at 4:00 pm

Oh so now you’re deleting your own posts? I’m very disappointed. lol

#18 anominous on 12.16.09 at 6:09 pm

How about when Glenn Beck accused Snow White & the 7 Dwarfs of being communists?

#19 owk on 12.16.09 at 8:24 pm

Hey, what’s that crazy Howard Dean talking ’bout when he says most of the benefits from this health care debacle they’re trying to squeeze through before its time(like a turd, it stinks) won’t take place until 2014? Is he crazy? I thought that comedian from MN said that the benes would start right away when he was handing assess to people with the help of his buddy. Who is right?

#20 Plaintiff Guy on 12.16.09 at 10:10 pm

Whoa, exit stage right. Rush is not right and neither is Beck.

The war on drugs is lost. But nobody wants to admit it. So they cover up by condemning people who take a drink or smoke. Legalize drugs ( I mean everything ) and put the dealers Mexican or otherwise out of business. Like prohibition repeal put the mob out of business. And if they’re pulled over under the influence write them a ticket like you would someone driving drunk.
