This graphic says everything about Glenn Beck's brain. What there is left of it.
My theory? It was a fake nod to no violence with a wink on the left to the right-wing gun nuts.
Now listen to Beck warn Palin to get a bodyguard because "there are nutjobs on all sides."

The violence he expresses is remarkable, even for Beck. Apocalyptic visions of violence.
Oh, and "peace and love." Give me a break. He loves Sarah Palin though, and certainly gives a dramatic reading of her email.
There is a certain chaotic rhythm to what the right wing does. Even in their denials, they're chaotic. They deflect, distract, and use cognitive dissonance as weapons to derail any meaningful discussion or attention to that which they have caused. It is their way of keeping followers under their thumb. Nothing illustrates this better than that graphic and this incredible piece of radio theater.
