    No worries, I didn't mean to come across as snappy - it just never occurred to me that this wasn't widely know.

    freedom of speech here in the UK is a thing of the past and now just showing support for our country during the world cup and we are being branded racists

    free country ? NO ... free speech ? certainly NO

    Well, you know. Government schools and indoctrination in the US and all. ;) At least that's what Glenn Beck says. :eek:

    Tbh, this doesn't really surprise me, considering that Turkey still tortures people: http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=51307

    I grew up with a lot of Turks in my school and had quite a few Turkish friends but it's still a quite restrictive culture in some respects.

    I hope the more western oriented parts of the population can make a change and help it grow into a more open and tolerant society although this news headline doesn't sound too promising. :(

    Funny he gets so much grief when Olberman says things similar and often worse...don't love either of them but I do love how Beck pisses off so many people.

    I think the difference is Olberman doesn't take himself too seriously while Beck believes his own bull.

    LOL...you actually believe that I bet. Beck makes fun of himself all the time and will apologize when he does something wrong which I have yet to see Olberman do.

    Can't say I care for either, but you haven't seen Beck basically worship himself on O' Reilly have you. :p

    Nice thread, some countries are more equal than others. After all, where was the criticism of what Israel have done in international waters and the total media blackout on these boards? And are we going to talk about torture? Shall I link websites that document children held in Guantanamo Bay and Israeli prisons, who've been given 10+ year sentences for throwing stones? :3eyes:

    Let's not throw giant boulders in tiny glass houses, shall we? Turkey's sins aren't even comparable to the sins of our Western world.

    Has Olbermann ever talked about the NWO? Is he selling gold in commercials?
    Beck sort of became a copy of Alex Jones but slightly different so that he suits the Fox News crowd.

    Anyway, I think this is mostly about ratings. "With a deadpan, Beck insists that he is not political: “I could give a flying crap about the political process.” Making money, on the other hand, is to be taken very seriously, and controversy is its own coinage. “We’re an entertainment company,” Beck says."

    Beck has also said that empathy leads to bad things.. :wanker:

    Throwing stones? One kid (15 years old) that was held at Guantanamo threw a grenade at a soldier, KILLING him.

    So, if by stones you mean grenades, then yes.

    :3eyes: Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today and emoraged, accusing me of bull**** while not having a clue where I come from and what I've seen.

    If you need to make personal attacks you can do it in private and if you'd asked me politely I could have shown you pictures showing you how 'psychic' I am. I have no idea what I've done to deserve this reaction.

    This thread just started to be about emoraging girls :stewpid:
