I watch his commentary show pretty often. I know he is made fun of a lot by Jon Stewart as well as news commentator's that disagree with him.
But, if you don't like him, can you tell me why?
It is fine to disagree with his views, but why is it okay to make fun of him?
Everything he says, he backs up with quotes and source material.
I don't honestly see his critics do that. It is almost if they just laugh at him loud enough, they feel like people won't listen to him.
I really hope people don't use this question as an opportunity to continue to make fun of him, in a Jon Stewart way, but that they will maturely present solid reasons for their dislike.

"Well for one thing he is teaching people to hate. Hate liberals, Hate gays, Hate Muslims, and Hate anyone who thinks different than you
BS. Have you ever listened to him or watched his show? If you had, there is no way you could honestly say this.

I disagree with everything he stands for......
I don't understand this. He stands for things like non-violent disagreement, fiscal responsibility, return to the Constitutional Republic, the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution, honest, integrity, doing your own research ("don't trust me....look it up yourself"), the values in the 9.12 Project. How can you 'disagree with everything he stands for'? That doesn't make sense to me?

I do not want to be entertained in the process of getting my daily news. If I want to be entertained by theatrics, comedy or drama, I will view productions showcasing those genres. GB fancies himself an entertainer. I agree with neither his rhetoric nor his delivery, and am therefore, not entertained.
