McCaughey on Death Counseling

“The Congress would make it mandatory … that every five years, people in Medicare have a required counseling session that will tell them how to end their life sooner, how to decline nutrition, how to decline being hydrated, how to go into hospice care … all to do what’s in society’s best interest … and cut your life short.”

(Betsy McCaughey, former Republican lieutenant governor of New York, 7/16/09 as reported here: http://2m.factcheck.org/2009/07/false-euthanasia-claims/)

Glenn Beck on Multiracial Racism

“This president I think has exposed himself as a guy over and over and over again who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, or white culture–I don’t know what it is… I’m not… I’m not saying that he doesn’t like white people. I’m saying he has a problem. He has a… this guy is - I believe - a racist.”

Glenn Beck on Reparations

"Everything getting pushed through Congress — including this health care bill — is transforming America. And it's all driven by President Obama's thinking on one idea: reparations... He believes in all the 'universal' programs because they "disproportionately affect" people of color."

Scheuer and Beck Wish for Terrorist Attack

"Scheuer: The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States. Because it's going to take a grass-roots, bottom-up pressure. Because these politicians prize their office, prize the praise of the media and the Europeans. It's an absurd situation again. Only Osama can execute an attack which will force Americans to demand that their government protect them effectively, consistently, and with as much violence as necessary.

Beck: Which is why, I was thinking this weekend, if I were him, that would be the last thing I would do right now. "
