  • No ..Beck isn't responsible for folks with mental health problems.This was also done to another famous metal/rock band Judas Priest years ago.It HAD to be their fault couldn't just be that their child had issues that weren't dealt with.

  • so...I did what YOU did and NOW you are saying I WAS WRONG? lol..typical

    LOL ~Look I get it... You didn't like my post... So, perhaps you wanted to engage in a childish game of "tit for tat"? I said, go right ahead (your SECOND diversion of the day in this post).... ;o) But if (FIRST diversion) you want to talk about the Chinese pianist, I believe that question is STILL OPEN... But, if you want to discuss politicians, MSM, and entertainers "inspiring" death threats.... You have come to the RIGHT Question...... FACT: No celeb inspires Death Threats. People who are are not mentally with it. will do as they so choose and their mentally unstable CHOICES can impact society.. Just as people who don't research facts have the potential to impact our society...
    Are you following along?

  • You don't "need"'s a suggestion to avoid the backlash and being accused of promoting violence.

    What is Promoting Violence? Have you researched the presidential campaigns of ALL of past presidents?  There is historic documentation of words, campaigns, press releases that today would be considered, "promoting violence".....   Who gets to decide where the line is drawn?  Dissent was patriotic to Nancy Pelosi when George Bush was Pres.  But then, those same sentiments became violent vitriol....  Who gets to draw the line?

  • When a congresswoman gets shot in the head..WE NEED TO DRAW A LINE! Tone down the rhetoric!

    So, you have factual proof that rheotiric is the motive behind the shootings? You better hand those facts over to the FBI.... As it appears a crazy man who didn't even watch the news, shot the congresswoman...

  • You are taking 22 seconds of an hour long show to make your point? Seriously?

  • You know, people need to take responsibility for their own actions instead of trying to say someone else made them do it.

    And for the record, I disagree for the same reasons grly mentioned.

  • But isn't it strange that this entertainer does a piece on Piven and the following days she receives death threats?

    But, it's ok for her to come straight out and call for Violence???? So because some nutjob makes a choice like that Beck should keep what she is doing to himself?? Good rational there!!!

  • Hrmmmmm, OP are you THIS concerned with the ENTIRE MSM for the Death Threats the controversial author 'Tiger Mother' Amy Chua received?

    Answer by grlygrlz2 at 12:30 PM on Jan. 25, 2011

  • Um Beck is right on about Piven..anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows that.
