Flying Finn: Why are you and others so afraid of Hillary Clinton? Is it because
she remained married to her husband who betrayed their marriage vows? Is that
worse than Arnold Swarzeneggar who fathered a child out of wedlock? Last time I
listened to Glenn Beck, he supported marriage and foregivness.
As a registered Republican who has listened to Glenn Beck, I feel he is a
disgrace to the real Republican Party as are Speaker Boehner and others who want
to bankrupt the USA by continuing the George W. Bush tax cuts for the rich
(those making more than $ 250,00).Democrats need to examine the
giveaways to the indolent while Republicans need to realize taxes must increase
to pay for necessary services AND the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
@CHS 85 | 1:35 p.m. May 26, 2011 The Federal Government isn't trying to
stifle Glenn Beck's freedom of speech. Hillary Clinton would however if given
@Screwdriver | 12:40 a.m. May 28, 2011 How is it that conservatives
like Rush Limbaugh can make a fortune on talk shows and the liberal can't?When a conservative doesn't like something they hear they move on. They
have something the liberals will never have: A sense of humor.
I have nothing against Glenn Beck and still listen to him, now and then, until
the content Commericals both Real and in the suspossed program finally get to
me. That does not take long these days before I switch all the stations to off.
That would include the both Left and Eight Wing Media.All I want to
see is Abortion Stopped, and providers and helpers brought to justice on this
side of life.Then Oba,a to a be a 1 term President,Those
two things accomplished I may turn my TV back on and my Radio to somthing other
them Smooth Jazz. Maybe the Station that runs Commericals about Not having
Commericals. Mostly because they play Rap Music and no one wants to buy time on
them.Glenn was good and Glenn was funny, not so much anymore.I predeict that Glenn Beck will implode.
re: Cats | 9:36 a.m. May 26, 2011 Then, by that same logic, Keith
Olbermann is a threat to the lunatic right. Don't know about the
rest of you but I will be watching alot more Current TV starting 6/20.Brother Glenn is an entertainer and he even admitted it.For the
record, The only Fox "News Analysis" shows worth watching are Follow
the money & Freedom watch.
I thought he said he was an entertainer and a rodeo clown? What truth is he
talking about?Has the US been converted to communism? You do realize
that Obama is the worst and slowest communist dictator ever right? He didn't
even take your guns yet or imprison scientists.
Just goes to show that even recovering alcaholic lunatics survive. But what's
worse is when someone makes a valid attempt to take out the trash and somehow it
manages to make it's way back...Oh well... the silence as short lived as it
was...was indeed... golden.
Glenn Beck's new venture will most likely be a financial success for his
organization, employees and the advertisers. Limbaugh wouldn't still be on, and
have the ratings share he does, if his message wasn't popular with millions and
millions of listeners, and the advertisers there, also reap a financial
reward.The one thing that most progressives consistently fail to
realize, or accept, is that the market itself,drives the financial success. Trying to regulate free speech, hasn't worked so well in Syria, Tunisia, Libya
and Egypt has it? Another failed lesson of life by the progressives. They
want "democracy" their way, and no other way is to be permitted or
tolerated at all. That in and of itself is despotism, and the American people
finally are beginning to wake up to the farce of Progressivism.I'm not
terribly enamored with Limbaugh and find some of Beck's programs at least
interesting, haven't found much but negativism on the more
"progressive" media outlets. There are indeed far more professional
female news anchors out there than Katie Couric, anywhere you look, well, except
here in Utah of course.
Duckie says, "No, the goal of anyone left of crazy fringe right is
intelligent thought, and to destroy ignorance.... unfortunately Glenn Beck just
happens to stand at ground zero of ignorant thought."If Beck is
the crazy fringe right then anyone who opposes him is the crazy fringe left,
right? Given that fact, Obama just happens to stand at ground zero of ignorant
thought. And so many of you blindly follow your Dear Leader as if he were the
Savior.....talk about scary!owlmaster says, "I watched him
once, vomited and have never gone back." Perfect example of the tolerant
and open-minded Left. You really want us to believe you vomited? One of the Big
Tenters!!!It's been fun to read of the hatred and anger directed at
a man who has studied history and shared what he has learned. No one has refuted
Beck but you sure have opened your souls and let everyone understand how the
absence of light and knowledge is ignorance and hate.Sunshine on the
Communists in the Democratic Party is the best disinfectant in the world.Why spend an entire day posting about a man you hate so much? Telling!
@Ninjutsu: your post @11:08 should have just ended when you said you hated Beck.
I don't know anyone who hangs on every word Beck says. I don't know of anyone
who only gets their news from one source or like-minded sources except the Left.
No one on here listens to Beck, Hannity, Rush or watches Fox News.
You visit pages that share what they think those people said but no one actually
listens to them. Pagan and his headlines thinks that's listening to them.
LOL!Cult? Kind of like the Democrats who threw Joe Lieberman out
because he voted FOR the war and with them on every other issue?Anyone who sheds light on the Communist policies of this administration is to
be taken seriously. Van Jones? ACORN? Planned Parenthood? Cass Susteen? and many
other radicals that your news sources don't report on.@oneoldman:
"I've always thought there can be only ONE version of the truth. Are you
telling us there are more?"IDK - California is teaching
kindergarteners that there are more than 2 genders. It all depends on what your
definition of "is" is, right?
@Reasonable person: (interesting moniker when all you've done is complain about
the Right).People do watch all those you claim they don't. You
should check out Newsbusters dot org or CNS or many others who document the lies
of the Left. Did you notice that none of the national news networks reported on
the outburst by Schultz of MSNBC? Why is that? They sure reported on Imus but
nary a word on Schultz calling Laura Ingraham and nasty word.You
want "screamers"? Just watch or read the list of outlets you posted.
The anger, hate and vitriol just oozes from their lips/pages. Go listen to the
hatred from Mike Malloy and former Air America personalities. Watch Chris
Matthews, Lawrence O'Donnell and Olberdonkey.Watch the disdain from
David Gregory or any of the nightly news hosts.You can also watch
and listen to your Dear Leader and his disdain for those who oppose him. See his
words for Fox News, Hannity and anyone who disagrees with his Communist beliefs.
it's hatred for his fellow man.@George: the hearts of men are
exposed by the words they share with us. Not too hard to discern.
LDS Lib states, "I'll listen to a persons opinion, but I won't stand for
out-right lies, half-truths and deceitfulness." And yet you
blindly follow and support your Dear Leader and the national media who want to
"fundamentally change America!" I guess your issues are a one-way
street.Pagan states, "I wasn't even attacking CI directly. I
was faulting the logic that everyone else is wrong, but me."And
yet that's exactly what the news outlets CI mentioned do daily. It's what you
Lefties do on these pages daily. It's your way or the highway. I've never seen
any of you support a conservative idea or eternal principle yet.MormonDem states, "Enough with the conservative oppression
fantasies". Fairness doctrine. Democratic members in Congress calling for
the end of Fox News on the air? and the elimination of AM Radio? You need a new
news source MD. it's happening and you don't even know it.I'd also
like for you to call out those on the Left who spew "hateful
nonsense". Maddow, Matthews, Suspended Schultz, Malloy, Oberdonkey, Obama,
Wasserman-Schultz, O'Donnell, Maher, Behar...can you do it?
To "get'er done | 8:14 a.m." When I see what Obama, and many other
politicians are doing to the country, I am reminded of the scripture Alma 46:3-5
which states:"3 Now the leader of those who were wroth against
their brethren was a large and a strong man; and his name was Amalickiah.4 And Amalickiah was desirous to be a king; and those people who were
wroth were also desirous that he should be their king; and they were the greater
part of them the lower judges of the land, and they were seeking for power.5 And they had been led by the flatteries of Amalickiah, that if they
would support him and establish him to be their king that he would make them
rulers over the people."Those kingmen were ultimately looking
to destroy freedom all for their own gain.
anything that will help get rid of Obama and his freeloading supporters.. they
all need to get jobs and stop leaching.
@AggieloveThere is a major difference between your typical repub and
a true Republican. Republicans take their conservative opinions seriously and
capitalize the name of their party. repubs on the other hand are fair weather
friends who would probably vote for Obama over Romney.
im a repub and i could care less about his money making scary reports.
Thank heavens I do not have to listen to him.
George - Bronx, NYI was in the Bronx about a week back. Nice place
to visit but I wouldn't want to live there. The thing I found most telling
about the place are the bumper stickers on police cars that read "$10,000

Many of you say that Glen Beck is an entertainer--I'll give you that. The other day a caller called into his radio show and was so concerned about
Beck paying out $1 million for security that he (the caller) wanted to donate
money to Beck to help him out. Beck stopped him and said he didn't want it but
the guy kept insisting that people should donate to help Beck out. So would you think Beck would steer the man to donate to worthy causes? No....Beck told him about how he could go to Beck's website
and buy things like books and such to help him out. That's when I
changed the station.It's all about the money!!!!! It's always about
@ selway Every time the DesNews runs a story about Beck we get some
version of the inevitable comment: "Those who criticize Beck must never
watch, because he's never been 'unfactual.'" Every. Single. Time. These can
not all be first-time readers. The number of examples shared on these pages are
too numerous to mention. There are whole Web sites dedicated to fact-checking
Beck -- with dates and times for his hundreds of 'unfactual' statements. Here's
my prediction for 10 years hence: Beck will be unaffiliated with any organized
religion, perhaps the (very wealthy) leader of a fringe group of hangers-on that
no-one pays any attention to.
Good work Glen, keep it up. We need more folks fighting obamism and socialism
in our nation. We have little time left.
He already has written 4 or 5 best sellers and has a bigger tv audience than any
show on cnn or cnbc and is 3rd on Fox with a terrible time slot. Funny I have
not heard of any stories out of hundreds he has reported on where he was
Ok you Glenn Beck hatemongers, I will go on the record here and now and tell you
all that within 10 years Glenn Beck will be as rich and powerful as Oprah
Winfrey. He will have his own TV network, books, organizations and have
thousands of people working for him. If you people where around when Oprah
started 25 years ago you would have told her she would not be successful. I also want to add Glenn Beck will go down in history as helping to save
our Republic and by doing that help save the rest of the world. It only takes 1
real person to make a huge difference in the world.Time will tell.
You will all see.
@Mike Richards Your 12:05 post Mr. Obama has most of the press in his back
pocket. Can't he allow ONE PERSON to question him? Can't he allow ONE PERSON to
give his own opinion?Your 2:35 post directed at CHS You made the
accusation that I thought that the GOVERNMENT was taking away Glenn Beck's
rights. I didn't make that assertion. You did.So are you being
dishonest or just contradictory?
If Glenn Beck is wrong in his programs/agendas... why not just ignore him?
Bashing him doesn't speak well of the "basher". If he is right - then
follow his advise and don't look back. Why all the arguing and haggling... I
for one look for truth where ever I can find it. It's like knowing
the difference between wisdom and knowledge. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a
fruit - but wisdom is not adding it to a fruit salad. Knowledge is taking from
Glenn Beck what will help you in your life - wisdom is if you can't find
anything good - move on.
Boo Hooo! The fascist mo is moving on, boo hooo!
Glen Beck isn't worth the time wasted to argue one way or the other. I watched him once, vomited and have never gone back.His facts are
so out of line with reality that it's like expecting a snake crawl in a straight
re: Counter Intelligence | 8:36 a.m. May 26, 2011 "What the
BECK critics really seem to hate - is actual diversity of OPINION."You mean whether he's hard core insane or partially off his rocker? There is **no way** Glennie is pulling a Hamlet! I dare conservatives to
look that up.
there's sure a lot of people out there that are threatened by Mr. Beck. It's a
good thing we have a little item called Freedom of Speech that the liberals love
to support.. whenever it suits their purposes. lol
Ha ha. I was commenting that I find it interesting that people have such
interesting comments while they have no year's supply, don't honor the Sabbath
etc etc. Yet they are ready to jump on another human who has about as much
status as anyone else straightening the deck chairs on the Titanic. Thus,
believe in the Lord not man.
"The goal of the left has always been to destroy Glenn Beck."No, the goal of anyone left of crazy fringe right is intelligent thought, and
to destroy ignorance.... unfortunately Glenn Beck just happens to stand at
ground zero of ignorant thought.It does crack me up that this is his
big break.... we web TV shot. He, maybe he can run side by side with I Carli's
web show. Anybody with a laptop, internet connection, and a web cam can launch
their own web channel... this is about the least earth rocking news imaginable.
Springville Ed. How do you go from Glenn Beck to a Sermon on the Web?? We have
religious leaders, which Beck is NOT, to teach us what they believe to be the
truth, the light and the way. Beck is no prophet, although there are those on
here who may believe he is.
Again I have to wonder if there would be such a passionate argument over a
television personality (which, let's be honest. THAT is exactly what Beck is.)
if he said things that were against the LDS church. I honestly feel that many
on here support Beck simply because he's LDS. If this guy wer saying the same
stuff but was Catholic or even an agnostic I doubt there would be this volume of
Glenn on the web is perfect. So-called open-minded liberals who boycott
companies that advertise on his Fox cable show will have a much more difficult
time boycotting a show on the web. For people who thought Glenn would simply
fade away, he will continue to have a major impact on American culture and
I have often laughed at so many believing in the arm of flesh. all politics is,
is voicing your opinion about subject matters. The constitution is not a play
thing to be changed with every administration. The Lord will one day rule from
Jerusalem and New Jerusalem. Until then, follow the prophet (primary song). If
you condone homosexuality, the dole (welfare), breaking the rule of law (our
borders, going to war without congress' approval, etc.) , then don't be
surprised when you wake up and have inherited the Telestial Kingdom. There is
only one way, truth and life. Thank Father for the book of Mormon and living
George,It's probably because it's a lot more ironic when the party
that champions "tolerance" has just as many problems tolerating what
they disagree with as the party that they constantly attack for being
@Mike Richards once again Mike you need to slow down and reread my post
and maybe actually address the questions and comments directed at you. I stated
that i think Beck should have the right to his free speech and his show and I
restate that belief again. now will you actually address my questions or do you
want to keep avoiding them? BTW this is myforth attempt at trying to get
them to post a response to you and others so dont feel so bad.
so one person made a childish comment about if you dont like it leave (countered
by at least seven liberals stationg their belief that Beck has a right to his
free speech incuding me) and now the entire thread is about supposed threats by
liberals on free speech yet over on the article about the MSNBC person who was
actually suspended not a peep about free speech.....interesting.
Ninjutsu |"But the scary thing is how many people follow him religiously
and hang on his every word." Kind of like the Obama followers that post.
re: CHSYou made the accusation that I thought that the GOVERNMENT
was taking away Glenn Beck's rights. I didn't make that assertion. You did.
Now you want me to explain why YOUR accusation is wrong. Welcome to sixth grade
debate. Your tactic is not allowed. You can present your facts. You can refute
my facts. You cannot attribute one of your "facts" to me and then
demand that I refute that "fact".Now you're advancing a
conspiracy theory against the government. Do you want to prove YOUR point?
To "CHS 85 | 1:35 p.m" The FCC, and the current political appointees
that run it want to shut down Glenn Beck, Fox News, and all who disagree with
liberals. See "FCC push to regulate news draws fire" at the Hill
where they describe how the FCC was seeking regulations so that they could
determine "fairness". Also see "Nothing neutral about this
unholy scheme" in the Washington Times.I can give you a list of
Democrat leaders that want to use the FCC to shut down Glenn Beck, Fox News, and
all who disagree with liberals:Rep. Louise SlaughterSen.
Howard DeanBill and Hilary ClintonSen. StabenowSen. HarkenSen. Charles Schumer
"The problem is that the left thinks they have a corner on the facts and
anyone who disagrees with them must be shouted down, silenced and
maligned."That actually sounds a lot like the right.
To "LDS Liberal | 10:20 a.m." why do you keep insisting that the lie
you have been fed about NAZI's is true. The NAZI party was a socialist
organization. If you bothered to read their party platform from the 1920's and
1930's, they are nearly equal to today's modern liberal movement. They are the
left, not the far left, maybe not as far left as many congressmen are today.If you want I can post statements from the NAZI party platform so that
everybody can see that they wanted to nationalize businesses, force businesses
to share profits, and destroy free speech of anybody who disagrees with the NAZI
@Mike RichardsSo, you admit, then, you have absolutely no proof that
any governmental agency is trying to stifle Glenn Beck's freedom of speech,
right? The last time I checked, he had a rally on the National
Mall, has a daily tv and radio show, is launching an Internet tv show, publishes
book after book, making himself and his employees vast fortunes. Again, what
free speech rights is he being deprived of?The rest sounds
suspiciously like conspiracy theories - kinda like the theories that Mr. Beck
Amen Mountanman!If you don't believe it just go to the Huffington
Post or anything Soros. I haven't seen such twisting and turning of things since
the game of twister.
@ one old man. Great question! Truth is a knowledge of things as they really
are, as they really were and as they really always will be. The problems come
because all people see the truth not for what IT really is but from what THEY
really are! In other words, some people can't accept the truth so instead of
changing themselves to be in concert with truth, they attempt to alter the truth
to fit themselves. We call those people liberals.
re: CHS 85 | 12:38 p.m. May 26, 2011 Are you so naive that you think
that only the Government can take away a person's rights? Welcome to the real
world where Mr. Soros has almost unlimited power with the media, where Mr. Obama
can ban media coverage from outlets which are not on his "friends and
family" list, where contracts to do business depend on accepting his
politics hook, line and sinker (just ask Boeing, GM and Chrysler).Don't play the role of a wide-eyed innocent who thinks that the powers that be
will not use any method available to them to shut someone up. In their world
the end justifies the means and they will use any means available to them.
Mountainman, correct me if I'm wrong in thinking something is strange about your
comment: "Again, if you don't like Glenn Beck's version of the
truth,"I've always thought there can be only ONE version of the
truth. Are you telling us there are more?
@Mike Richards"Yet, he is being singled out as someone who
should be stripped of his right to speak freely."How exactly
are his free speech rights being taken away? What governmental entitity is
trying to do that?
Mr. George, you commented, "how about we drop the false indignation and
false superiority act now".Please show us how that is done.Glenn Beck is a good citizen. I think that he has all the rights of
every other citizen to speak. I think he does not need your permission.
Re: George | 12:00 p.m. May 26, 2011Jim made and excellent point!
It's the same one liberals use when we complain about the trash on TV. If
liberal don't like Glenn Bech no one will force them to watch him at the point
of a gun ..... especially in New York.Liberals swoon over the 1st
Amendment right to free speech ..... provided that they agree with it.
Ha! None of this has anything to do with "truth" or
"facts." It's all a SHOW designed to make MONEY. That goes for all
the talking skulls on the left and the right and the middle. They're making
millions and laughing all the way to the bank. They just stake out their
"territory," spew forth and sell advertising. Wake up...it's all a
SHOW folks...and these guys are the carnival barkers...rich carnival barkers.
I will go out of my way to miss this show.
Why does it not surprise me that the moderators would censor my rebuttal to
another poster who directed his post directly at me? If a conservative makes a
rebuttal, he becomes a person non-grata. If someone posts against a
conservative, his post is published. It does not matter that there are rules
printed about which posts will be allowed. Glenn Beck is not the
enemy. He cannot pass legislation. He cannot execute legislation. He cannot
rule on the constitutionality of legislation. Yet, he is being
singled out as someone who should be stripped of his right to speak freely.He is one person. Is there not room in America for one person to speak
against Mr. Obama? Mr. Obama has most of the press in his back pocket. Can't
he allow ONE PERSON to question him? Can't he allow ONE PERSON to give his own
@jimyour right jim and maybe you can remember that as well the next time
one of those nasty liberal channels is airing something that insults your
delicate taste....how about we drop the false indignation and false superiority
I don't know how many people are aware of it, but there is a button on most
remote controls, it is called the on/off button, sometimes called the power
button. When you use it the evil genie on the screen disappears, you can then
make yourself a warm cup of milk and go to bed.
The truth lives here. Haha. Good one, Glenn. I guess if you keep repeating
the same lies to the uninformed long enough some will think they are the truth.
Sad state of affairs in our country.
Though I disagree with Glen on most things except Israel, I need to say I admire
OK, I confess. I am a Beck hater. But I do believe he has every right to do what
he does. But the scary thing is how many people follow him religiously and hang
on his every word. I know many people who get all of their news from just one
source, or a handful of like-minded sources, rather than try to understand a
variety of perspectives. This is similar to the way conspiracy cults are formed.
Beck is a demagogue and to the extent he is taken seriously he is not healthy
influence on society.
I have to wonder if Glenn Beck wasn't LDS, would the Deseret News still print
all these stories about him? What about the Osmonds?? What channel can I find
Cats and Panamadesnews,Beck is doing something, you say? To stop
Obama? You're wrong. Every word that comes out of Beck's mouth makes Obama's
opponents that much more ridiculous. The best way to make Obama disappear would
be for Beck to shut his mouth. Welcome to reality, my friends.
Mike Richards | 9:43 a.m. May 26, 2011 South Jordan, Utah The goal
of the left has always been to destroy Glenn Beck. They don't believe in the
right of free speech. ============= Pure poppy-cock
MR.He [or anyone else] has all the free speech you want.But "anything you say, can and will be used against you"With freedom, comes consequences.I'll listen to a persons opinion,
but I won't stand for out-right lies, half-truths and deceitfulness.
I like Glenn Beck, but I rarely watch his show and never listen to him. So it's
a no-brainer that if you don't like him, you would not watch his show, listen to
his radio and how about this, not read about him or comment about him. I dislike Obama, I never watch him on TV, which is really hard, cause he
loves to be on every day, I don't listen to him, I don't read about him and then
make comments. I am aware of what he does, cause everyday the news
is drooling over him, so by no means am I uninformed. But you Beck
haters, at least you know what station and what time he will be on and you can
avoid him, try doing that with a President that you do not like and have seen
more on TV in less then four years then probably all the presidents of the past
combined, since TV was invented.
Prisonplanet tv is where the truth lives.
@mike richards "The goal of the left has always been to destroy Glenn
Beck. They don't believe in the right of free speech." and when exactly did
you get the ability to see what is in the hearts of other men Mike, and how
exactly does casting these kinds of aspersions fit into your strict religious
beliefs? I dont need you or any of the other posters to tell me what I
think and feel, I can speak just fine for myself thank you. I strongly disagree
with Beck and his propaganda but I think he has every right to his free speech
and his little internet enterprise.
"The Truth Lives Here."============= The 1st
thing Glenn Beck needs to get staightened out about truth is that the Nazis
[Fascism] are politically on the ubber-far-Right.
MormonDem: I am a MormonRepub and I do not agree with you. We apparantly
belong to the same religious organization, but do not agree on politics. Just
the way it should be in our church and our country.
I'm all for internet radio and TV channels. Let the conservatives and the
liberals put their stuff out there and let's see who survives. This is just
freedom of choice. It is free enterprise at it's best.
Cats says "One thing I find interesting is that most of the people who
attack Glenn Beck don't even listen to him."Substitute MSNBC,
CBS, NEWSWEEK, NPR, David Greogry, Paul Krugman, NEW YORK TIMES, Kati Couric,
Joy Behar, Bill Mahr, HUFFINGTONPOST, for "Glenn Beck" in your
comment, and it'll ring just as true.The BIGGEST problem we have, is
that the people with the biggest audiences, are not the President, Senators or
Congressmen. It's the radio-TV "screamers" who interpret what's
said, into language that their listeners will understand and support.
Cats: I agree 100%.
Penguin Inc: If Glenn Beck doesn't like what Obama does, he doesn't need to
move to Russia, he can do what he is doing. Most everyone else that doesn't
like what Obama is doing just complains, but doesn't do anything about it.
Glenn Beck is doing something about it.
Hey people, Glen Beck's program is an opinion program. Yes, most of what he
says are his opinions. He shouldn't have to document everything he says. Yes,
if he quotes someone, he ought to say where the quote came from. But, just
sayin . . . it is what it is.
'And lets face it, they just have more entertaining personalities. Would you
rather watch Rachel Maddow sit behind a desk talking about facts, or Glenn Beck
dressed up as a Nazi scribbling on a chalk board while screaming at the camera?'
- williary | 9:42 a.m. Last post, I did want to touch on this one.
While I never want to see anyone in a Nazi uniform, I do remember fondly Glenn
Beck and his chalk board. And while many on Fox News are
entertaining performers it's true, like Sarah Palin... none hold a
candle to Rachel Maddow's factual coverage, and an episode where she had a light
saber! Go ahead. You can look it up! Good day to you
Cats:Sorry to burst your bubble, but I was just using Mountanman's
logic against him, as he had previous suggested that Beck critics could just
shut up and not watch. Thanks for the lesson about "typical liberals,"
though. A real eye-opener.
'One thing I find interesting is that most of the people who attack Glenn Beck
don't even listen to him.' - Cats | 9:36 a.m. Cat, Of
COURSE we listen to Glen Beck! *'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." We DO listen to Glen Beck. Your just upset it's the reason people
don't LIKE Glen Beck.
The goal of the left has always been to destroy Glenn Beck. They don't believe
in the right of free speech. They believe that only they have that right and
that it is the duty of everyone else to not only listen to them, but to accept
it as the gospel truth.This nation was built on freedom for each
individual to do what he thought best with very few restrictions. Glenn Beck
has the right to do what he thinks best. If he has a different opinion that you
do, why not hit up Mr. George Soros for the millions that it would cost to host
your own liberal left-wing web T.V. show? Oh that's right, that money is only
available to intimidate advertisers and station owners, it's not available to
spread your propaganda.
A reminder: the same freedom of speech that grants Glenn Beck the right to hawk
his wares on his own cable network gives the rest of us the right to point out
his dishonesty and deride his charlatanery.Saying that someone spews
hateful nonsense is not the same as inhibiting his right to spew hateful
nonsense.Enough with the conservative oppression fantasies.
I love when the words "Glenn Beck," "Fox News," and
"Truth," appear in the same story!The reason Fox News has
great ratings is that it's much easier to get the public riled up talking about
social issues, which Republicans pride themselves on.And lets face
it, they just have more entertaining personalities. Would you rather watch
Rachel Maddow sit behind a desk talking about facts, or Glenn Beck dressed up as
a Nazi scribbling on a chalk board while screaming at the camera? It's just
'Just because I disagree with someone doesn't mean that I'm right and they're
wrong.' - Rifleman | 9:22 a.m. I would agree with you.
But CI mentioned ELEVEN sources who were supposidly 'biased' instead of Glen
Beck. 'The same could be said about MSNBC, CBS, NEWSWEEK, NPR, David
Greogry, Paul Krugman, NEW YORK TIMES, Kati Couric, Joy Behar, Bill Mahr,
HUFFINGTONPOST, etc etc etc.' - Counter Intelligence | 8:36 a.m.
Beck was even dropped from Fox News! I wasn't even attacking CI
directly. I was faulting the logic that everyone else is wrong, but me. Can you find fault in that point? Or would you like to mention
ELEVEN other sources in an attempt to discredit my point?
One thing I find interesting is that most of the people who attack Glenn Beck
don't even listen to him. All they do is listen to those in the media who attack
him. I don't agree with everything Glenn says, but he's not a nut, extremist or
tin foil hat wearer. The reason he is attacked by those on the far left is not
because he is a flake, it is because he represents a threat to them. That's it
plain and simple.
Glen Beck...is like voiting for Sara Palin...fun, but hard to take too
Or you can watch FOX News and get both sides of the story. No matter what you
say about FOX News, it has shown both sides for years which is why they are #1
in news. The truth will always win out in the popular vote. People always will
get tired of hearing the lack of truth in news. That is why MSNBC, NBC, CBS,
etc, etc, etc is falling so fast. Even the printed news (New York Times) is
falling into bankrupcy.
Re: Pagan | 9:04 a.m. May 26, 2011 I've never taken the time to
listen to Glenn Bech so I can't form an opinion on whether he has a tin foil
hat. I don't however automatically assume that everyone I disagree with wears
one of those hats you refer to.Just because I disagree with someone
doesn't mean that I'm right and they're wrong.
To Counter Intelligence | 8:36 a.m. May 26, 2011 I have no problem
with diversity of opinion; in fact, I value it. I regularly read and listen to
sources from all parts the political spectrum and then synthesize them so I can
get an accurate and complete picture of what's going on concerning any
particular issue. Sadly, a lot of people are not willing to make that effort,
and look to people like Beck alone for their perception of what is going on in
the counry and the world.My problem with Beck (and others on the
extremes of the politicial spectrum) is not diversity of opinion; it's lack of
accuracy. To put it bluntly, they play fast and loose with the facts. This
does not work to the benefit of a properly informed populace.
Dear Penguin: One of the hallmarks of our republic is that if we don't like
what the President is doing, we CAN speak out. We don't have to escape the
country to express our opinion or change our elected officials. Me thinks you
have lost sight of what freedom really means. Pretty typical liberal!
As a liberal who respects and supports the duly-elected President of the United
States (but doesn't always agree with him), I also respect Beck's decision to
have an internet radio station.I'll listen to it, as a way to keep
up with what's being said (rather than listening to someone interpret it for
me).Will the conservatives also listen to "the other
side", so they can learn the truth about what's being said?Demonizing Katie Couric because she asked "What do you read?" says
more about the demonizer, than Couric.
'The same could be said about MSNBC, CBS, NEWSWEEK, NPR, David Greogry, Paul
Krugman, NEW YORK TIMES, Kati Couric, Joy Behar, Bill Mahr, HUFFINGTONPOST, etc
etc etc.' - Counter Intelligence | 8:36 a.m. See that?
It's not Glen Beck who's crazy... it's, etc, etc. It's
every. One. Else. But not me! Tin foil hat award.
Mountanman:If Glenn Beck doesn't like Obama's policies then he can
move to Russia. Problem solved.
Re Penguin. According to recent Rasmussen polls, the majority of Americans do
not like Obama's policies, just like Beck. Russia should brace themselves,
right? But they don't have freedom of speech there either so it is better suited
for liberal immigrants!
My view on Glenn Bech is similar to the Democrat's view on porn. People that
don't like him can simply tune him out. If he succeeds it will be because
enough people agree with him and chose to listen to his show.The
thing that drives liberals crazy is that Rush Limbaugh is a financial success.
Liberals have tried to compete with their own shows and always fail.
Or, some people listen to MSNBC and take their word as fact, and refuse to
listen to the truths that Beck says. I'm not saying everything he says is right,
but more often than not, his words ring true, and the facts support them.
Re Furry. The problem is that the left thinks they have a corner on the facts
and anyone who disagrees with them must be shouted down, silenced and maligned.
The demand for truth (facts) is always lower than the supply, always has been,
always will be! Again, if you don't like Glenn Beck's version of the truth, use
your channel change button on your remote!
To Mountanman | 8:05 a.m. May 26, 2011 The problem is that too many
people accept his word as gospel, and don't do the fact-checking which would
disclose his factual lack.
If you don't like Glenn Beck, don't watch or listen to him! Problem solved! Its
called free speech and it isn't just for liberals anymore!
More fiction on TV. How does a person find out who the advertisers are on the
channel, so they can be avoided too?
Oh boy! This is going to be terrific...................NOT!
Comedy or science fiction?
