Perhaps it was for his alcoholism. He has freely admitted to his being a recovering alcoholic. (It has been my experience that those on the left tend to be very compassionate toward recovering alcoholics; except, of course, for those with whom they disagree...)

It seems to be a staple of many on the left nowadays: Try to demonize (and thereby destroy) those of different political views, rather than engaging them in reasoned debate.

I will leave it for others to decide what this says about the relative strength (or the lack thereof) of the left's chief arguments.

In any case, this is not the first thread in which I have found an apparent proclivity, on your part, for the use of the dismissive term, "paranoia."

I believe that the attempted transformation of America, into a statist entity, would indeed amount to the ruination of the country.

As for the meaning of the word, "paranoia," the Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines it as follows:

"1 : a psychosis characterized by systematized delusions of persecution or grandeur usually without hallucinations

"2 : a tendency on the part of an individual or group toward excessive or irrational suspiciousness and distrustfulness of others"

Presumably, it is not in the clinical sense of the word that you intend it; so definition #1 is not quite relevant here.

As for definition #2, its application to Glenn Beck would be appropriate only if one were to assume that his fears as regarding the hard left's plans for America are "excessive or irrational." And I do not believe that they are. Either.

If you wish to debate the views set forth by Glenn Beck, I will be glad to engage you in that matter. (Note: I do not march in lockstep with anyone; and I am basically a right-wing populist, whereas Beck is more of a libertarian. But I do agree with him on a majority of the issues.)

This isn't really left right. There are nuts on the left as well. Garfalo is one that comes to mind. Maxine Waters as well. This is just that the right has so many.
