Beck's Tea Party allies must go

Previously here, Glenn Beck's views toward the UN were described by an author writing in the Hatewatch section of The Southern Poverty Law Center. Apparently, Beck's nutty ideas about the U.N. as some kind of totalitarian, global socialist government out to destroy freedom have caught on with members of Congress, and more specifically in the U.S. Senate. This week, the Senate refused to ratify a U. N. treaty that would have absolutely no effect on the United States or its citizens unless disabled Americans travel abroad.

a very bad influence on some Americans

Via MSNBC, Lawrence O'Donnell explains the shame brought on to the Senate by some of its more Tea Party type members during the rewrite section of his program on Dec. 4th.

Representatives in the House and the Senate who identify themselves as associated with the Tea Party, and therefore with Glenn Beck, need to be removed from office. If we're going to have an effective government, rather than an irrational, fear-based dysfunctional one, Beck's allies need to be -- like Allan West in 2012, voted out of office. In 2014, this trend needs to continue before -- if it's not too late -- these reactionaries misinformed by Mr. Beck do something dangerously stupid.

Update, 12,8/2010: In a piece published in Reader Supported News entitled "Five Signs that the Tea Party's Time is Up," Henry Decker writes:
Without active promotion from Fox News, the Tea Party would literally not exist. After Fox and the rest of the right-wing media epically blew their electoral predictions, however, some Republicans - such as Bruce Bartlett and David Frum - have turned against the "conservative entertainment complex." 
As Bartlett wrote, "Living in the Fox News cocoon, most Republicans had no clue that they were losing [in 2012] or that their ideas were both stupid and politically unpopular." If more Republicans figure out that they've been lied to, then the Tea Party will be dead in the water (maybe that's why Fox banished failed pundits Dick Morris and Karl Rove).
Perhaps, just maybe, some of Beck's followers are catching on. One comment on Beck's website indicates that at least some of his followers are catching on. "wherefore" wrote in a comment, "Glenn just has no clue how to evaluate science or culture ... but he is funny.  All sorts of potential and it is totally going to waste." Yes, he is funny, but he is a waste of people's political time and energy. How to get more Americans to turn away from the likes of Glenn Beck as a source of "information?" Share this blog URL with people who think that Beck is honest or principled. He is "funny" perhaps, but he is neither truthful or principled, not when he demonstrates blatant hypocrisy as often as he has.

Before more people are taken in by Beck's paranoid fantasies,
