Glenn Beck Rants Spark Death Threats against 78 yr-old Prof

Glenn Beck's repeated fantasy rants about the "Great Leftist Plan to Collapse our System" has resulted in the issuances of Death Threats against a 78 year-old sociology professor for a minor paper she co-authored in 1966. as if it had any bearing on events here today.

Beck: Perpare for a crash landing, this plane is coming down, because the pilot is intentionally steering it into the trees. We'll be fine as long as these people are not in control. They are taking you to a place to be slaughtered.

So I guess this is why we need to Shoot Them in the Head, eh?

Glenn Beck has been railing against 78-year-old CUNY professor Frances Fox Piven for weeks now, claiming she co-authored a devious plan to overthrow the government in the 1960s. Now, some of his fans are issuing death threats against her.

According to the New York Times, Piven has been receiving death threats after being villainized on Beck's show. "Somebody tell Frances I have 5000 rounds ready and I'll give My life to take Our freedom back," wrote one user on Beck's news site, The Blaze.

Exactly how Barack Obama is tied to a paper that was written when he was 5-years-old, I'm not certain - but people like Beck and his flock have been absolutely convinced that the deep dark plan is at the heart of all of Barack Obama's policy solutions to date.

The assumption that Obama will need the nation to prosper in order to protect the 2010 mid-term election incorrectly assumes that he esteems free market capitalism. He does not. Rather than win through superior ideas and policies, the Democrat plan for success in the mid-term elections is to win by destroying political opposition.

Obama adheres to the Saul Alinksy Rules for Radicals method of politics, which teaches the dark art of destroying political adversaries. However, that text reveals only one front in the radical left's war against America. The Cloward/Piven Strategy is another method employed by the radical Left to create and manage crisis. This strategy explains Rahm Emanuel's ominous statement, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste."

Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation... [Emphasis added.]

Making an already weak economy even worse is the intent of the Cloward/Piven Strategy. It is imperative that we view the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan's spending on items like food stamps, jobless benefits, and health care through this end goal. This strategy explains why the Democrat plan to "stimulate" the economy involves massive deficit spending projects. It includes billions for ACORN and its subgroups such as SHOP and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Expanding the S-Chip Program through deficit spending in a supposed effort to "save the children" only makes a faltering economy worse.

See how that works? They argue that the Recovery and Reinvestment Bill was simply a feint designed not to help the economy, but instead to destroy it. However in the meantime - despite Obama "obvious" dislike for capitalism - Corporate Profits during 2010 were at record levels.

American businesses earned profits at an annual rate of $1.659 trillion in the third quarter, according to a Commerce Department report released Tuesday. That is the highest figure recorded since the government began keeping track over 60 years ago, at least in nominal or noninflation-adjusted terms.

Meanwhile on the jobs front, even though things have been slow compared to the rate of corporate profits - in 2010 more jobs were generated under Barack Obama (1.3 Million) than during George Bush's entire 8 Year Presidency (1.1 Million).

Despite all the cry and hue about Run Away Government Spending the truth is that spending has been essentially flat during Obama's Presidency and has actually come down in FY2011 by over $70 Billion, and the Deficit has already been reduced over $200 Billion, and is projected to be cut in half by 2012.

How is this possible? We all know that Obama spent massively on the Stimulus, TARP and Auto Bail outs right? Well besides the fact that both TARP and Auto Bail-out were started by George W. Bush, both were also Loans that have been paid back. In fact TARP was paid back with a profit of $73 Billion. 40% of the Recovery Act was Tax-Cuts for Businesses to spur growth and investment. In the end actually government spending has been basically neutral, while the Health Care Bill is project to save $132 Billion from the deficit over the next 10 years, including $500 Billion in savings in Medicare.

But in the end, all of these projections Depend on the Economy Recovering - and despite their claims to the contrary Republicans Don't Deserve Credit for this. But of course, if you're going to blame the Obama and Democrats for the Crash as being part of a deliberate strategy, Republicans have to take Credit for the Recovery Right (even though they voted against or blocked every aspect of it)

In Republicans' telling, they are responsible for a looming economic recovery from a recession caused by Democrats.

Close to the opposite is true, but you'd never guess that by listening to the GOP.

Citing a Dow Jones story reporting that U.S. companies plan to increase hiring, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's press shop fired off a morning roundup including this sub headline: "THERE ARE THE JOBS: Republicans Prevent Massive Tax Increase, Economy Begins to Improve."

The Dow Jones story does not credit Republicans for the recovery.

They also ignore who crashed the economy in the first place - hint: George W. Bush's "hands off" policy with the Housing Crisis and Wall Street.

Even more recently the Blaze has attacked Piven for supposed Calls for a Violent Revolution.

She’s considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, and finally create income equality.

Now, as the new year ball drops, Piven is at it again, ringing in 2011 with renewed calls for revolution.

In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation (”Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force. As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle. Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular in the 60s.

But Piven didn't call for anything more "violent" than - a Large Demonstration (a Tea Party) by and for the masses of Unemployed.

And as a result of these lies and spin this little old professor lady is getting Death Threats on the web, phone and email - via New York Times.

Her name has become a kind of shorthand for “enemy” on Mr. Beck’s Fox News Channel program, which is watched by more than 2 million people, and on one of his Web sites, The Blaze. This week, Mr. Beck suggested on television that she was an enemy of the Constitution.

Never mind that Ms. Piven’s radical plan to help poor people was published 45 years ago, when Mr. Beck was a toddler. Anonymous visitors to his Web site have called for her death, and some, she said, have contacted her directly via e-mail.

It's not like this hasn't happened before - like when Byron Williams attempted to stage a gun attack on the ACLU and Tides Foundation after becoming entranced by the Fear-Mongering of Beck.

Byron also writes that "very good information regarding 'Petrobraz' can be found in Glenn Beck's 'June' shows, where he accurately covered the Obama-Soros-Petrobraz-Chicago (Crime Inc.) connections for several days. It's all true."

Byron adds that he "found allusions to the Horizon disaster as a 'false-flag' operation in Alex Jones '' and '' "

"Think like a conspiracy theorist," Byron tells me during the interview. "Except don't use the word 'theory.' Because the conspiracies are not theories. The official report is the lie; the conspiracy is the truth.?"

Are these ideas any less crazy than the idea that the Government is trying to control us through grammar?

All it takes is one nut being pointed in the wrong direction to start a blood bath.
