From the August 5 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Glenn Beck Program:

Last night, Glenn Beck's website streamed a video that it billed as a "a special prime time broadcast celebrating the 1-year anniversary of Insider Extreme," Beck's $75-a-year Web subscription service. Beck's site described the video as "an exclusive glimpse inside Glenn's New York City home as he hosts a very special dinner" with four guests to "tackle the issues the mainstream media just won't talk about."
Beck promoted the special on his Fox News show yesterday as well, encouraging viewers to visit GlennBeck.com to see "a conversation with four experts that I had the other night on what is coming in the next 12 months. It is a conversation that America must have. And not one that I expected, actually, to have when we started. It's amazing."
He was right -- it was amazing. In the course of the video, Beck and CNN's Dana Loesch expressed a baffling sympathy for anarchism. Loesch said, "I'm two steps above anarchy conservatism, just as it was intended by the Founding Fathers. I mean, really, that's really what we're supposed to be." In response, Beck said, "[W]hen you say we're two steps -- you're two steps above an anarchist -- and I think I am, too. I mean, I'm really closer to Washington than any president, even Reagan. They really were organized, controlled anarchists."
Beck also returned to drawing parallels between current conditions and the conditions that led to the Holocaust. While discussing the "better natural side of man" and the "dark side of natural man," Beck said, "[T]hey don't co-exist. I mean, there is a time when you do have to say enough is enough. And we always bury our head in the sand. We're doing -- mark my words. We are doing what we did with Nazi Germany right now. And the trains will return someplace on the earth. It will happen again. All the same seeds are here."
Attacking the proposed Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero on Fox & Friends, BigGovernment.com's Brad Thor asserted that the "Founding Fathers did not intend for the First Amendment to protect" the Islamic center, because Thomas Jefferson "went to war with Islam, the Barbary pirates." In fact, the treaty ending that war specifically stated that the United States has "no character of enmity" against Islam.
Back in May, Andrew Breitbart's BigGovernment website posted an "exclusive" story by Brad Thor claiming:
Through key intelligence sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan, I have just learned that reclusive Taliban leader and top Osama bin Laden ally, Mullah Omar has been taken into custody.
Heaping credibility on the story, the right-wing Jawa Report "confirmed" the story.
Well, much like Breitbart's attack on Shirley Sherrod that fell apart earlier this week, the Omar "exclusive" (not surprisingly) appears to have met a similar fate.
A reminder: check out today's New York Daily News, which reports that NATO blames Mullah Omar for the mortaring of civilians this week. Last month, Omar "instructed his commanders to capture and kill any Afghan supporting or working for coalition forces."
The fact that Omar was roaming freely in June and coordinating attacks must be an awful shock to readers of Breitbart's Big Government.
