The Sewage End of Glenn Beck

Timothy Egan in the New York Times:
"In Italy, Mario Borghezio, a member of the European Parliament who belongs to the anti-immigrant Northern League, expressed open sympathy with many tenets of Breivik’s philosophy.

"'Some of the ideas he expressed are good — barring the violence,' Borghezio told Il Sole radio. 'Some of them are great.'

"We should not try to ban or overlook this kind of speech, whether it comes out the sewage end of Glenn Beck’s Web site, or from a member of the European Parliament. It needs examination, in the same way that sane people have to understand why a reading of the Koran could lead someone to strap on a suicide bomb."
