Glen Beck (Mormon) and Pamela Geller (Jew) are a couple of odd birds.
Both rabble-rousers. Both make their living scapegoating others. Both were members of a once oppressed minority but now feel comfortable enough to lash out at others.
Beck, a proud member of the Later Day Saints Church, shows no mercy while he attacks anyone and everyone who isn't as American as he sees himself to be. FOX boasts that this sort of programing is "fair and balanced."
Geller, a vocal Ayn Rand devotee, gets attention whipping up a froth about all things Muslim. Islam bashing here. Her assaults on the "ground zero mosque" have gathered an audience of admirers.
Note how soon the hunted become the hunters.
The scapegoating of Jews in various countries over the centuries is well documented -- you could fill an airplane hanger with the material, easily. In fact, there's a mall in Washington that has a big museum devoted to the subject. (And, no, I'm not Jewish; I'm a Goy.)
The Mormon story is less familiar to most. But with more and more LDS members taking prominent positions in our society (like Mitt Romney and Harry Reid), it's worth recalling some of it. Back in the early 19th century, Mormons were driven out of Missouri and Illinois. Their town, Nauvoo, was the second largest settlement in Illinois, at one point, only Chicago was bigger. That was all wrecked by angry mobs that saw the LDS community as a crazy, cultish band of bigamists. Their leader, Joseph Smith, was murdered. Those attacking Mormons used the term, "wolf hunts," to describe their activity. The Mormons found temporary refuge in Iowa, then headed west to start their own country, Deseret, in what is now Utah. (And, I'm not Mormon either; I'm a Gentile.)
With this history in mind, how in the world can someone like Geller and Beck lash out at any other minority group that is trying to make a go of it in the USA?
