Teh Blahz (The Blaze website nickname)

The Blaze is a conservative news website, founded by Fox News host Glenn Beck, that premiered on August 31, 2010. On October 30, 2010, commenter “epkkik851” at Media Matters for America (a media website that offers daily criticism of Glenn Beck) called “The Blaze” website “The Blahz.” On November 11, 2010, “eppkkik851” changed the nickname slightly to “Teh Blahz.”

“Teh Blahz” (for “the blahs") has been confined to Media Matters commenter “epkkik851,” but the nickname could spread into wider use with Glenn Beck’s critics.


Wikipedia: The Blaze (blog)
The Blaze is a conservative news and opinion website launched on August 31, 2010, by American media personality and Fox News host Glenn Beck, three days after Beck’s widely publicized Restoring Honor rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. C.. Beck has promoted The Blaze as an alternative to “mainstream media outlets”, which Beck says are “distorting facts to fit rigid agendas.” Beck was quoted saying that The Blaze will feature “breaking news, original reporting, insightful opinions and engaging videos about the stories that matter most” and that “we will examine our culture, deal with matters of faith and family, and we won’t be afraid of a history lesson.” The site is reportedly modeled after The Huffington Post, and has been compared to that site by Matt DeLong of the Washington Post and Steve Krakauer of Mediaite.

Yes, I also got a picture that says “Repeal Godwin’s Law”. There were a lot of humorous signs. Over on The Blahz, they are trashing us and the rally, convinced we are all sheeple and out to doom the nation.

Epkklk851,
Thanks for your thoughts. I don’t watch Glenn Beck. What is Teh Blahz?

His blog of eternal stench, The Blaze. Where his proud posters regular call for the deaths of Liberals. And where trolls are called names and given rude suggestions.

Actually, Teh Blahz was just looking for an excuse to show a Foxtart on her game. Ms. Kelly is quite pretty, and her hair is bleached a convincing shade of blonde, but if she is a lawyer and a serious journalist, what the hell is she doing posing like some skank starlet? Does Sean Insantiy pose in tight jeans and a strategically placed sock next? Does Cavuto sprawl out in satin sheets? Gross? Brain bleach needed? Yep, so why is it okay for Kelly? By the way, on Teh Blahz, they consider the spread proof that only pseudo-conservative women are attractive. Sorry, most of the women on Faux Noise strike me as kennel and muzzle escapees.
