McCarthy Era Politics-Another Obama Aid Forced to Resign-Glenn Beck Strikes Again

Share/Save/Bookmark//

I just got word of this.. so as you read this keep the following in mind..

1-He (Obama) is not just into us

2-Glenn Beck is not that smart and a real easy take down. Color of Change has proven that. A little ingenuity and commitment is all thats needed.

3-People should never ever put up with McCarthy era politics. The way these things work is someone sets the rules and criteria for who is acceptable and who isn’t..The people targeted either ignore, take lightly or passively go along with while the enemy gains momentum and strength.

4-Dont let someone keep hitting you and you not hit back

on a side note with the First Lady supposedly leading this operation, will she come under attack? Will B.O. distance himself from her?

Yosi Sergant, Obama Aide, Asked To Resign: Glenn Beck Strikes Again

Yosi Sergant, who recently popped up on Beck’s radar for his involvement in a conference call on national service, has been asked to resign as communications director by the National Endowment for the Arts, sources familiar with the move tell the Huffington Post.

At issue was an August conference call in which the NEA encouraged select artists to participate in an administration project dubbed “United We Serve” and led by the first lady.
Beck attacked Sergant and the NEA on his Fox News talk show, accusing the agency of propaganda efforts similar to those used by Nazi Germany. And now Sergant has been tossed overboard, making him Beck’s second victim in his campaign to rid the administration of perceived radicals, socialists, communists, fascists, anarchists and all other manner of nefarious influences.

Perhaps not coincidentally, both Sergant and Van Jones – Beck’s first takedown – have roots in on-the-ground organizing and were tightly connected with the grassroots progressive community Link to complete blog–

Glenn Beck has struck again.

Yosi Sergant, who recently popped up on Beck’s radar for his involvement in a conference call on national service, has been asked to resign as communications director by the National Endowment for the Arts, sources familiar with the move tell the Huffington Post.

At issue was an August conference call in which the NEA encouraged select artists to participate in an administration project dubbed “United We Serve” and led by the first lady.

Beck attacked Sergant and the NEA on his Fox News talk show, accusing the agency of propaganda efforts similar to those used by Nazi Germany. And now Sergant has been tossed overboard, making him Beck’s second victim in his campaign to rid the administration of perceived radicals, socialists, communists, fascists, anarchists and all other manner of nefarious influences.

Perhaps not coincidentally, both Sergant and Van Jones – Beck’s first takedown – have roots in on-the-ground organizing and were tightly connected with the grassroots progressive community.

The NEA wouldn’t comment on Sergant’s situation specifically, saying that it was a confidential personnel matter.

The White House did not come to Sergant’s defense but says it was not involved in asking him to leave. “The White House did not ask for Mr. Sergant’s resignation,” administration spokesman Shin Inouye told HuffPost.

But the NEA did provide this statement:

“On August tenth, the National Endowment for the Arts participated in a call with arts organizations to inform them of the president’s call to national service. The White House office of public engagement also participated in the call, which provided information on how the Corporation for National and Community Service can assist groups interested in sponsoring service projects or having their members volunteer on other projects. This call was not a means to promote any legislative agenda and any suggestions to that end are simply false. The NEA regularly does outreach to various organizations to inform of the work we are doing and the resources available to them.”

An artist on the call recorded it and gave the recording to Beck, who played it on air as proof of a government conspiracy to co-opt arts organizations and warp the minds of Americans. “Your government is trying to trick you, use your tax dollars to change your mind. It’s called propaganda. The people involved in the conference call, including the White House, knew that this was on the fence if not outright illegal,” says Beck.

Sergant has a long history with the Obama campaign, having led the media effort for Shepard Fairey, the artist behind the iconic “Hope” portrait that Obama has credited with helping him win. (See this L.A. Weekly profileto get a feel for Sergant.)

On Sept. 1, Beck came after Sergant. After claiming that Nazi propaganda was based on America’s early 20th-century progressive movement, Beck says that the progressives are at it again.

 The Corporation for National and Community Service is a public-private partnership created in 1993 with a mission similar to one Obama pressed during his campaign, during which he repeatedly promoted national and community service.

For Beck, however, the service promotion is a specter of totalitarianism and he interviewed an artist who said that he was uncomfortable working in coordination with the White House.

The Washington Times editorial pagealso came after Sergant, asking if the NEA had invited artists to be on the conference call.

“The NEA didn’t invite…We were a participant in a call. It was a third party that did the invitation,” Sergant told the conservative page.

The Times published an invite that Sergant had sent out, saying it had caught him committing “official dishonesty.” It’s a nice gotcha, but would the Bush administration have cut such an aide loose?

Sergant didn’t return a call and the NEA declined to comment further. Press officers with the Corporation for National and Community Service didn’t immediately return calls.

Sergant is, by all accounts, a highly-talented grassroots organizer and promoter, but communications director for the NEA is a position that requires a high level of political dexterity: the arts agency is constantly under fire from extremist activists who see it as propagating a liberal, libertine agenda. The day the culture war is finally declared over, there will still be skirmishes over the NEA.

Beck, however, is now trolling for bigger fish. Shortly after taking out Van Jones, he sent a note to his followers instructing them: “FIND EVERYTHING YOU CAN ON CASS SUNSTEIN, MARK LLOYD AND CAROL BROWNER.”

  1. Mr. Detroit says:

    INTERSTING hey Van JONES was also a 911 truther yeeee!

    this is great in a twisted kind of way because i told yall obama was a fuckin puppet from the start i felt sorry for the so called progrssive movement because they really beleived in that nigga obama.

    OBAMA answers to a higher power and its not JESUS CHRIST you bitches GOT IT! good now lets get back to some real live critical analysis of the situation

  2. thats real. satan is his master. the bank of london, the rothschilds, the warburgs. even rev wright and he are freemasons. Obama represents satans last chance. he is more of a pro gay president than anything.

  3. Robert Jr. James McClendon says:

    You all lost me on the Rev. Wright and the Free Masons, because had he stuck with Rev. Wright and “the truth” about America he wouldn’t be in the puppet position he is today. If you want to get spookey and talk about skulls and bones and all that other conspiracy crap, I’m with you, but “Free Masons”? If you are not going to be “brave” enough to say who’s really pulling Obama’s strings, be quite.

  4. Glen Beck doesn’t have that much power. I think we a forgeting who “really” owns FOX News. This man can call the President a racist just like that rapper did. There are folks that they want Beck to go after and there are folks he would never go after. This is all about nuetralizing and reminding Obama who’s pulling the strings.

  5. If it were some high-level position, then I’d blink a few times otherwise…Glenn Beck?!

  6. I even today it is not clear why in such situations is always drew Nazi njemacaka – I think we have more problems in this world of these bloody past – and that is that it is wrong as it was during the Second World War is manifested in other forms
