Looks like the gatekeepers of pop-culture have taken notice too now that his ratings are taking off, and they just cant have that, now can they?
Starting with a less than sympathetic profile in the NY Times, (ugh, where else) pop-culture intellectual wannabes like Bill Maher, John Stewart and Steven Colbert have all taken the opportunity to apply Saul Alinsky’s most effective rule for radicals, #5:
RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessionsBeck did address Maher’s near libelous comment that guys like Beck are responsible for the OKC bombing, but h needs to stay on top of these people. If he doesn’t stay on top of people like this, they will destroy and marginalize him just like good ol’ Uncle Saul would have them do.
