Glenn Beck Comment Porn: Nelson Mandela Tributes Pour In…..

It’s that time of the week again – ‘Glenn Beck Comment Porn’ Fridays – the day when we trawl through the insanely offensive comments left by fans of ‘The Blaze’. While the column exists to poke fun at Glenn Beck fans, it does also serve  as a useful reminder that there are some truly dark corners of America that the rest of us should  be aware of. The comments are morbidly funny (mostly), but they also reflect a serious malaise in society – a subculture of the population abandoned by its country through years of neglect and abuse by corporations, rampant market economics and cynical political and media figures who thrive off creating a climate of fear and hatred.

Out of respect for Mandela, we’re leaving out the snarky intros and letting the comments speak for themselves. On a piece titled “TOUCHING TRIBUTES TO NELSON MANDELA POUR IN FROM AROUND THE WORLD”, commenters jumped in with what can only be described as tragically offensive comments about a man who dedicated his life to racial equality and justice.

Here’s what’s happening in an American neighborhood hopefully not near you….

Until next week folks….
