Glenn Beck And The Marketing Genius Of Fox News

1 comment August 2nd, 2009at 02:23pm Posted by Eli

Sure, everyone knows that Fox News owns the traditional conservative news market segment, with traditional lying, smearing, bullying conservative Republicans-are-always-right-and-Democrats-are-always-wrong hosts like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, but they’ve never really had anyone to appeal to the black-UN-helicopters-are-coming-to-fluoridate-our-water demographic. Until now.

And lest you doubt the success of Beck’s outreach to the lunatic fringe…

As reported by Saturday’s NY Post, “a Long Island mother of three — armed to the teeth with an assault rifle and shotgun — was arrested for scouting out and taking pictures of an Air National Guard base.”

Her arsenal included an XM-15 assault rifle, a shotgun and 500 rounds of ammunition.

The woman, Nancy Genovese, had been seen at the base a few weeks earlier, taking photos and questioning the guards. This time she had returned to take photos of the perimeter of the base. It’s not difficult to make the connection that she was paranoid about “FEMA Camps”.

Genovese is a Glenn Beck fan, according to her MySpace page (archived here). “He is mad as hell and so are we. He is right and so are we”, writes Genovese, who also posted a video of a Glenn Beck rant.

Genovese additionally posted an amateur video indicating her apparent affinity for right-wing militia movements.

That’ll do, Beck. That’ll do.

    please, tell me what law Ms. Genovese broke. I dont see any broken laws I do see an illegal detainment of 14 hours for questioning and an unlawful arrest.

    Please explain this to me. I honestly see NO LAWS broken, no FEMA concerns, just re-posts be others.
