Speaking of hate…

on June 29, 2011

I can disagree with someone, but I do not hate them.  That cannot be said about everyone though.  Glenn Beck tried to attend a movie in NYC with his family and was accosted.  So much for civil discourse, so much for allowing diversity!

Story here.

Update: In case anyone thinks that Glenn Beck made this up, they may want to see some of the screenshots taken from the Twitter account of the woman who did this to Mr. Beck and his family that prove it was intentional.

    My friend has said New York City is violently weird.

    Part of the problem is being well-known, famous and recognizible. Still,neither Dave Miller nor Iwould be that rude….

  3. Beth says:

    I indeed highly doubt BB that you nor Dave would do anything like this, the thing that bothers me is that the MSM and the leftists who chastise those of us on the right for being all sorts of terrible things, but will either ignore this disgusting behavior coming from their own side, or worse, try to excuse it. It is inexcusable!

    As for NYC, I wouldn't paint with such wide brush strokes, Z-man, my family took a vacation there earlier this month, and had a very nice visit. A few times, when we looked lost, we were offered assistance with finding our way around town, or even making suggestions on places to eat. We were pleased with our trip!

    Beth, Glad to hear that your impression of a NY'r is a good one.I Love NY and in fact married one.And I'm a Redskin Fan ! 😉

  6. It's not just in NYC — the lack of civil discourse, that is. Anyone perceived as conservative can be excoriated in any number of areas of the United States.

    It's sad when they do crap like this, it's worse when they try to lie about it.

  8. Beth says:

    I still think there are many more upstanding citizens in this country, who just quietly do their work, take care of their families, or help others without any fanfare. It's just a handful who get pushy when they don't get what they want.

  9. BB-Idaho said… Part of the problem is being well-known, famous and recognizible. Still, neither Dave Miller nor I would be that rude….No of course not. You can't compare angels like yourself to those Ugly and Rude New Yorker's!!

  10. Z-man says:

    Crime is going up there Beth just like in the old days.

  11. Z says:

    Z-man, it had been down with Giuliani, right?

  12. Z-man says:

    Yeah when he had that guy Bratton as Police Commissioner then TIME and some other mags began doing articles on crime going down in NY and petulant little Giuliani got his knickers all in a twist because he wasn't getting all the credit. I probably wouldn't vote for him for his personality quirks alone but that was back in the day…today some NY paper columnists are saying the City is sliding back to the old days when crime was out of control. Yeah Rudy brought crime down, I'll give him that.

  13. Beth says:

    Higher crime is everywhere, not just NYC, because the economy is bad, and also the liberal-minded thinking that we cannot actually blame people for bad things they do, they probably weren't brought up right so give them a break.

Thanks for joining in on the discussion!
