I know generally if you can have your IP hacked to post spam on whatever social networking site you're on, you have to be on one of those sites to begin with. So even if this was "accidental" that would mean he was on a similar site to begin with.

And this isn't a question of whether he should be allowed to post links to wherever he wants. This is a question of credibility. Unless there was some bizarre mistake or this is a fabricated story, Beck obviously has an inane prejudice towards people of other races. If he has a blind prejudice, why should anyone take his word about our black president seriously?

Oops, looking back you are the OP. Your choice in reading material should probably vary a little.

As for #2: You stated it yourself, it is history. History of a vast majority white controlled culture previously. "Violence and terror" within the 200 year US history pails in comparison to the fairly recent events within some of Eastern Europe and the African continent. Its pretty much a footnote in the comparison to Hitler, Moa, and Stalin. So while we can put it in a history book learn from our past, and avoid it in future, lets not be so quick to excuse the groups that are basically advocating for the prior problems. We should likewise find it inexcusable that elected officials will support such nonsense.
And I do find it to be a blessing white nationalist groups are going the way of the dinosaur. But that doesn't mean they're gone and harmless. I don't know about this specific one on Beck's twitter (the site was blocked to non-users) but I know there are current White Nationalist groups who: advocate for Hitler, want to repeal Civil Rights and lynching laws, and some even deny the Holocaust ever happened. Like I said, I don't know if that fits the profile of this group Beck listed as a favorite, but regardless they are birds of a feather and if this is indeed true Beck legitimately posted this to his twitter, then he should have some explaining to do to his fans, many of whom are on this site and take every breath he makes as 100% credible. Or better yet, if this is true, I'd like to hear from his fans as to why they should take him credible still....

Non-story. I've accidentally favored some posts too but then deleted them later. It happens.

Quit watching Faux news.
Faux is terrible, having a NBPP update every 2 hours and how they're a "threat to our nations security" , convinces posters like this that the DNC approves of the NBPP. Shame, really.

Almost as bad as favoring Rev. Wright for 25 years.

1. When I see Wright denying the Holocaust happened or favors repealing Civil Rights laws and lynching laws, I'll believe you.

2. The thread isn't about Wright. Quit deflecting
