Glenn Beck Is No Match for William Shatner

Posted on Oct 18, 2010

Back in his CNN days, the cable crier was baffled by a conversation with the always fascinating William Shatner. Even a chatterbox like Beck didn’t know what to do with a statement like, “They’re pressed together, defecating into the ocean and it’s all ... it’s just too much.”

NO. I think it was Beck laughing at Shatner’s riff on the drunken boat pilot. Big difference.

And, by the way truthdig, that was an eight minute waste of my time. NOTHING newsworthy was said.

Hardly a smack down…looked to me that Capt. Kirk was much more condescending then that idiot deserves. But thas all our discussion is made up of these days isn’t it….no ideas, not even looking for them apparently. Just different attention whores. The loonier the better too. All paid for by that 2% that owns it all and pays to keep the distraction thriving.

Wow…Glenn Beck was just laughing about the Exxon Valdez accident. I guess he showed us how effective capitalism was about correcting mistakes with the BP accident 2 years later!

You might find William Shatner like the epistemological 3 in 1 characters (“Christ” Gorman) in the episode “Star Trek”: James T. Kuhrt. Dr. McCoy and Mr. Spock, whom a subtle allegory for Satan worship on the inverse “Triune (agnostic) Christian belief.” 

  On one episode, Shatner playing James T. Kuhrt is battling a creature f/ another StarShip and a completely different world, which has destroyed unmercifully, without any cause, several planets and their inhabitants in the solar system. The creatures is a walking humanoid Godzilla, and the “god” that judges the 2 battling each other in mortal combat is Olympia.

  At the end of their battle, Olympia states that Kuhrt fought admirably, and that the “god” himself was surprised that Kuhrt did not kill the monster or Godzilla. Epistemologically, the Godzilla is another aspect of Kuhrt.

  Analogously to that episode, in another episode, the character Kuhrt beams up to the ship during a “cosmic” storm where he is split by the transporter machine into two versions of himself, a good James T. Kuhrt, and an evil James T. Kuhrt, which epistemologically he is (William Shatner as well out of “character”) and certainly not the Triune Jesus.

  William Shatner besides being a celebrity was profoundly an egotistically sick and demented man, who worked in many fields other than acting, and I know personally that he was “made” in the “Gorman” Swedish cult (in Switzerland and Sweden,) where the “made members” is given extraordinary privileges and access by the secret Rockefeller establishment.  In the ceremony to be indoctrinated, the “initiate” kills 4, 2 year old children.
