There’s a Fire Burning, but Somebody Lit the Match

9 09 2010

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that actual national security threats associated with the Florida—and now Tennessee!—Koran burning are probably somewhat overstated.  Gods, at least I hope they are.  But I think Josh Marshall (and Zogby) get it just about right.  I’ve seen Glenn Beck getting a nice pat on the head here and there today from people who ought to know better, and that’s bullshit.  Beck and Newt and Sarah and all the others might blanch now, but they’re the reason this shit got going and kept going, kept going past all reason and good sense.  You can’t go on teevee every goddamn day and compare people to an army of bloodthirsty, America-hating Hitler robots endlessly over and over and suggest that they’re building a kind of Triumph Fortress to piss on the bodies of the 9/11 victims and not expect some kind of crazy-ass reaction in places like, you know, goddamn Florida and Tennessee.  So spare me the fucking tears and spare me nice words for Glenn Beck.  Anything that happens is on his fucking head.
