Wow! The hate speech here is nothing short of...Christlike. Nice. @Happy Valley Heretic: "He just lost his job belching cow, or has he got another place to voice his hate speech?"

You're kidding, right? Did you read the article? That 'job' at Fox is the least of what he is doing and yes, he has many other places he can "voice his hate speech". His detractors can call what he puts out there hate speech if they want to, but his research staff is second to none and what he teaches can be verified. Seems to be a lot of ignorance and mis-information among the haters, mostly due to the media bias. C'mon haters, be honest, have you ever tried to search out and verify (or disqualify)what he has taught...or do you just spew? Ya, that's what I thought.

What's next for Beck? If only he could be sent to Iraq or Afghanistan to fight the wars he so proudly promotes...

It is so interesting, those that are Mormon that view Beck as off the path, I as a Mormon view Harry Reid as off the path. But Beck does uphold the constitution and that is so vital for this country which was founded by God. My gut feeling on Beck, is that he wanted to not do the show anymore. I really think that he will do more with Fox, as to having an impact with his knowledge and research by this new approach of doing specials. I for one give Beck a lot of credit, I know he didn't create the Tea Party, but he put the fire in other peoples bellies, he has helped to give the conservatives a voice to speak up for what they want and believe.

Again I have to ask: Is this news? Why is this guy all over this site? Really, isn't there something more relevant to cover in the form of news? Maybe another earthquake/sunami? Or something really important like a 5 year old in Magna tying his shoes.

This is just today's Glenn Beck update. Thanks. We haven't seen enough stories about his departure from Fox News over the past several days. Sheesh.

*'Fox Host Glenn Beck: Obama Is A "Racist" - Huffington Post - 07/08/09

'When Fox's Brian Kilmeadeon pointed out that many people in Obama's administration are white, so "you can't say he doesn't like white people," Beck pressed on. "I'm not saying he doesn't like white people, I'm saying he has a problem," Beck said. "This guy is, I believe, a racist."

It's pathetic that the marketplace buys this stuff up. Talk about market inefficiency.

Why is it that if a liberal disagrees with something someone says, its hate speech? Why is it that if someone, anyone says anything a liberal doesn't like liberals want him shouted down, silenced and stopped? Why do liberals believe in free speech but only for themselves? Why have liberals never learned to use the channel change button on their remote if they don't like what a person says? Why is it that if a liberal doesn't like someone's message, they attach the messenger? Silly liberals, Beck is too deep for your shallow minds isn't he?

When Glenn Beck stated "Obama is a racist". It wasn't to white people, but to America. He doesn't believe Obama would give his life for this country or promote the American Dream. How could Glenn believe this with all the change and hope that's been presented.

I would think Beck was crazy too... If all I had seen were the outrageous clips all the networks showed when announcing the story. 100% of the 3 I saw included the "Obama doesn't like white people" comment (which he retracted and apologized for LONG ago, but they can't get over it).

But if you watch more than just the clips the MSM wants you to see of him being CRAZY... you could come closer to the truth (he's not really crazy.. he's just very passionate and outspoken). I guess if the Left is against that... we should all try to destroy him?

===

I don't know... I just don't see the big deal some are seeing here.
He's just going to do his shtick somewhere else. So it's not on FoxNews... what's the big deal about that?

'It wasn't to white people, but to America.' - worf | 3:48 p.m.

Riiiight.

Because 'all of America'...
is a race.

Worf, what did I 'mean' by that?

Also, all this crying about the 'left' destroying Glenn Beck...
but Fox is the company that dropped him.

And we know how 'fair and balanced' they are.

'Fox News parent company News Corp. has given $1 million to the Republican Governors Association.'

Silly liberals, Beck is too deep for your shallow minds isn't he?

Now that's funny "Beck is deep."
Doesn't hang up on opposing calls.
Liberals are trying to censor the media?

Spoken like a true believer of Beck's Deep Mind.

"extremist" "hate speech" yada yada yada... The leftists are so glad to see the truthspeaker leave fox. Its always better to do the dirty work in the dark. No more exposure of groups like SEIU or ACORN. No more ties to presidential power by the likes of Sorros, van jones, Bill Ayers and the rest of the gang of communists. Yes, we are going to miss this articulate, funny, strange little chalk board professor.
It will be nice to sit in the dark, once again.

Pagan.........

What do you think of Obama?

What do you think of Beck?

What do you think of the Government as a whole? Not democrats or republicans separate because it takes two to make up the Government at work......

Beck ran out of things to say a long time ago. A daily show is not for him. A daily dose of fear is not good for anyone anyways.

What "extremist" view does he have? If you can name one thing that he has said that hasn't already happened or has backfired then you can talk. Until then, do the research yourself.

What are you going to do about your obsession with Beck? Now that he's gone who will be the boogyman?

Fox donated 1 million to GOP. Do you even have any idea how much money was given to the dems and Obama this last presidential run? 1 million is a pithece compared to the funny money that the dems get in political contributions. What is the most irksome is the amount of money that is redistributed from the taxpayer to the community organizers and the unions to the DNC. Whats more they have the MSM to parrot the talking points of the DNC.

Beck claims that Americorps has "just received half a trillion dollars in funding."
Fact: For FY 2010, the president requested less than two billion dollars for Americorps' parent agency.

Beck claims the "Obama Department of Justice" dropped the case against both men even though the evidence clearly supported a conviction.
Fact: An Obama administration official at the Justice Department told a subordinate that he wouldn't accept the outright dismissal of a high-profile civil voter intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party, according to a report by DOJ's internal ethics office.

He told his audience for several weeks that he "could not disprove" the existence of concentration camps run by FEMA in which conservatives were to be rounded up.

"The government is trying to now close the Lincoln Memorial for any kind of large gatherings."

Beck: Michelle Obama has 43 people on her staff; Nancy Reagan had just 3.
Fact: Michelle Obama has a staff of 25. Nancy Reagan had a staff of about 15. The size of Michelle Obama's staff is similar to that of her immediate predecessors.

2 bits, I thought O'Reilly was their highest rated show Fox Nesws. Beck has lost almost 1/3 of his viewers in the last year alone. Also, highest rated doesn't mean highest revenue in advertisements. The bottom line is the dollar, not the rating. Usually they go hand in hand, but in the case of Glenn Beck, he has burned too many bridges.

I say good riddance to Beck. I'm a Republican and avid Fox News watcher, and I have never liked Glenn Beck. His logic reminds me of the knight (Sir Bedevere) on Monty Python's Holy Grail who is helping the medieval townspeople decide whether a local woman is a witch or not using a bizarre chain of "connect the dot" logic.

The rest of the story....George Soros hired 80 people on his staff to bring down Glenn Beck. Soros is a multibillionaire from Poland who really runs the show at Media Matters, Planned Parenthood, ACORN, unions, GE, all the networks, and about three dozen other operations. He successfully got advertisers to bail on Glenn.

I think Glenn Beck will actually be more of a voice for returning the United States back to the principles of the Founding Fathers. He is definitely not going away. I respect the fact that Glenn Beck always backs up anything he states with actual video clips of the person making the statement or documents/references stating the person's own words. He always says, "Go look this up for yourself and decide."

I have met Glenn in person, listened to him for eight hours as he bore his soul for the love of this great country. I saw no crazy man as some have stated here. I saw a compassionate patriot educating us in ways that the liberal press has never done. If you have ears to hear and eyes to see, you would see a good man! Love you, Glenn Beck!
