I Need You Girl, By My Side

I feel depressed, I feel so bad
'Cause you're the best girl that I've ever had
I can't get your love, I can't get a fraction
Oh, little girl, psychotic reaction
And it feels like this!

I feel so lonely night and day
I can't get your love, I must stay away
Well, I need you, girl, by my side
Oh, little girl, would you like to take a ride now?
I can't get your love, I can't get satisfaction
Oh, little girl, psychotic reaction

We are on the side of individual freedoms and liberties and damn it, we will reclaim the Civil Rights movement. We will take that movement, because we were the people that did it in the first place!
So speaks Glenn Beck, and Leonard Pitts isn't having any of it. Beck and his ilk did something all right, but one doubts that any of their predecessors were standing on the right side of the Pettus Bridge at Selma. Even so, his diatribe was just too much for some:
King was not the man of peace Beck claims he was, and I'm not sure why he panders to him so much. King was a troublemaker...where King went -- racial riots followed.
Some of the riots that followed Martin Luther King:

Beck's co-opting of the anniversary of the "I Have a Dream" speech is one of the most disgusting spectacles I've ever witnessed. The man has absolutely no shame. There's going to be an earthquake on that day, caused by Dr. King turning over and over in his grave.

"God demands segregation?"

Signs of the times that are today.

I am so angry I could spit - right in the eyes of that deranged drug-addled hate monger. Tomorrow will not be pretty I'm afraid.

Beck is so sick (like Palin).....birds of a feather.....Beck SUCKS. It's amazing that anyone like him exists on this planet....the source of all problems are people like Beck/Palin! Oh, and Limbaugh, oh and Cheney, oh and don't forget Bush and his cronies..........

Thanks so for posting this dreadful stuff. I'm serious: will not name these two on my blog so was glad to link to yours and Darlene's Hodgepodge so readers could get more specifics/visuals on this distorting event.

I'm afraid if we bloggers don't counter the jackass Beck, people will believe the lies and idiocy he spread today.

What he did is disgusting and the people who showed up to support this pig are worse.

Came by specifically because Naomi said you were posting good stuff on this boil festering in our land. If the woman shown in the photo here ever becomes President I see little recourse other than revolution.
Pitts is my absolute favorite and I link him in my sidebar. As he wrote in the link you provided:
Sadly, as anyone who has ever watched a Jay Walking segment on "The Tonight Show" can attest, the American people have ignorance in plenitude. It is the truth in this statement that has me quite worried.
