Re: “Gone missing: The country's conscience, brain and heart

Another name calling hate speech screed from Hal Crowther?
Where is the conscience, the heart, the brain of the "Independent" for continuing to print such tripe?

Re: “Glenn Beck

I just finished choking down the miserable screed by Hal Crowther. A better title for this item would have been Drivel of a Pompous Buffon. It is strangely ironic Crowther turns the phrase belligerent projection about Beck. Here is a brief list of how Crowther describes Beck: pudgy, soft, fuzzy-headed pop-eyed Big Bird with a petulant little mouth and braying wheezing voice. Crowthers delusion of superiority also makes it fine to denigrate freedom of religion (Mormonism) and the second amendment (the NRA.) Crowthers hateful, spite filled invective drips with resentment and manifestly reflects his own inadequacies. He doesnt get why Glenn Beck has an audience, and why he is - well, writing for the free paper. While skewering Glenn Beck, he also has to malign (in addition to the obligatory George Bush) Sarah Palin putting Crowther into the intellectual realm of Sarah Palins grandbaby-daddy. What a delightfully balanced thought piece this wasnt; at least Crowther had the decency to avoid Becks family tragedies oh thats right, he didnt, including his daughters cerebral palsy. How does this tirade not constitute Hate speech?

I am reminded of the Frank Capra film Its a Wonderful Life and the fine actor Lionel Barrymore being called a warped, frustrated old man. Lionel Barrymore was just acting Hal Crowther is the warped, frustrated old man.
