I don't begrudge anyone making a good living. But I think we need to
recognize that what Beck, et al do is entertain us. They do not provide any real
product or service that is worth paying for, any more than Brittney Spears
does.I compare Beck to Al Gore. Gore has made a fortune saying
words. He does not actually accomplish anything. He just gets paid to say words.
Beck does the same. So the only difference is who is willing to pay for those
words. For Gore, it's people who want to feel good about reusing a water
bottle. For Beck, it's people who want to feel good about something else.
So it comes down to the fact that we are willing to pay to have people help us
feel good about whatever we're doing. In other words, we pay for

Aw, c'mon you haters. Love your fellowman, your fellow citizen... your
fellow More Man, your fellow Mormon? So you'll let some 25
year-old farm boy, with self-admitted lack of any theological training, trash
the entire Christian world, (lock/stock/&barrel), but you object to a
patriotic entrepreneur sharing his views in democratic America?Beck's world may get "mushy", but some LDS Beck haters here
reveal an unwillingness to allow the same equality for all. Even us Bako
bumpkins can see that. But will the site monitors allow civil free speech here?
That's an even bigger question...
Lds Lib states, "I'm active LDS and Liberal.Agreed, King Benjamin
+ 3rd Nephi + Pioneers, United Order, ect. FYI-Families,
U.S. Military,Zion,King of Heaven,...all
Socialist/Communist economic systems."I'm always astounded
at the manner in which people claim membership in the LDS church and then state
that the United Order is Socialist/Communist. It's puzzling since so many
church presidents and apostles have stated that such a belief is to not to
understand the gospel.King Benjamin's reign is not Socialist or
Communist in any manner. You might want to read a little further in Mosiah where
it speaks of a King who taxed his people up to 50% and how burdensome it was.Please, get a clue about what the actual doctrines of the Lds church are
before you try to claim that it's acceptable to have a Socialist/Communist
government. Interesting to note as well that you are indicating that the manner
in which the Democrats govern IS Socialist/Communist and you agree with that.
There is a difference between force and agency and you clearly
don't understand that difference.
I've been critical of Beck, yet I also have lost respect for C. Matthews,
O'Donnell, Maddow, Bill O'Reilly, and Anderson Cooper----they all
either talk about themselves too much or don't believe in the Bible.
With all of Beck's and Palin's faults, at least they believe in the
Bible and family which is not the case for much of MSNBC and FOX news. It is
cutthroat industy and if there is no news, they make it up.
I just don't get the whole Glenn Beck thing. I'm conservative and
listen to talk radio daily but can't listen to GB. Just find him
uninteresting.But prophet of love?? Seems like he's morphing
into some sort of televangelist and that doesn't sit right with me.
@Anti Bush-Obama" Glenn is the biggest fake I have ever
seen."Actually that would be your beloved President Obama who is
the biggest fake any of us have ever seen!! The man doesn't know what truth
is. How naive are you Left wing Liberals? You still support a man that has
accomplished absolutely nothing in the past 4 years, but still has the ego to go
out and say that he is one of the top four Presidents of all time.But what do
you expect from a socialist? A man that wants be a Dictator more then a
President and wants total control of our lives. A man who wants to destroy
everything that our founding fathers believed in and died for. And a man and his
administration that makes you believe that successful people like Glenn Beck and
Mitt Romney are evil because they have money. Please wake up people before its
to late.Thanks to Glenn Beck, Rush, and Hannity we actually know the
truth. The Truth that the Mainstream Liberal media wont give us!
If you have listened to this mans program in any meaningful way, and can still
say that you think that his message is that of love, peace, caring for one
another--you are lost. I'm sorry to tell you this, but you have found your
own Jim Jones. Your fear and distrust of "the other" has been
transformed into Orwellian double-speak and for you--"hate is love,"
"war means peace," and it's just plain dumb to be intelligent.

In one comment Mr. Beck was said to be divisive. My good husband fought
communism in Viet Nam. I saw and felt the influence of this evil first hand
while on a school trip to Washington D.C. when rioting, destruction and chaos
broke out. THERE CAN BE NO COMPROMISE WITH SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM.This is the
covert threat to our freedom and American way of life we have been so abundantly
blessed with.Study your constitution to know what it says not what you
have been told.May God bless Mr. Beck.
In the world of radio Beck pales in comparison to Howard("The King of All
Media") Stern both in the amount of listeners and contract size.
Stern's contract eclipses Beck by almost $500 million and Stern is by far a
much better entertainer. After all that's all Beck is, an entertainer.
If only those, who are ignorant, knew how much Romney and Beck fork-out to
charities. Yes, they donate a lot to their church (tithing, fast offerings for
the needy, humanitarian aid, etc.), but in addition, you can be assured that
they donate a lot to other humanitarian charities and other non profit
organizations, as well. Also, those who know that Romney was a Bishop and a
Stake President, surely must know of what those unpaid positions represent for
all, both rich and poor and every other economic level in between. The face of
those whom Romney ministered to had no dollar value scratched on their
foreheads. And this does not include all the personal time they spend helping
others, without desire for personal compensation. Consider the personal funds
that the Romneys extended to those in need. Many may not like eithers politics,
but do know that they both represent what Americans stand for, helping those who
are in need. America is the country who as a whole, donates more of their
personal income to those in need, both close to home and in other
countries...hands-down. They are a part of that great heritage. Patriots!
I just love the coments on this list that say something like "I
wouldn't know all that I know about politics if it wasn't for Glen
Beck." Do you know why he is the sole source of a lot of the things that he
says? It is not because he is tapped into a secret font of wisdom or hidden
knowledge. It is because he makes the information up. He is living proof that
mental competence is not required to become a success. Gotta just love this
brave new world.
He was much too over the top even for Fox News. That fact has to tell you right
wingers something about Bro. Beck.
@TOO - He tells it like you want to hear it.If it's facts and common
sense you're looking for the Beckster is not the source.
I don't mind Beck, but I'll never pay him my hard earned money to join
anything he posts...he is rich enough, and if he really believed what he says,
he'd sign everyone up for free...but I guess he needs to buy more gold.
@alt134"See, THAT right there is why we claim Beck is a merchant of
hate. This idea that "the left" those "progressives" want to
destroy the nation... that is hateful. I'm a progressive, and I strongly
disagree with many conservative ideas... but I don't think they hate
america or want to destroy it."But others have the fear that the
left, progressives, are bent on the destruction of the Constitution and other
things. I being one of them.Someone at my Sacrament Meeting said right at
the podium that he was a liberal democrat. As he left I explained that I
couldn't understand why one would be LDS and liberal. He said it was King
Benjamine's address. I read it and saw the individual aspects but not the
collective forced to do what is right (so that none shall be lost) socialist,
communist aspect.I still don't understand how one can have 2 masters.
Neil in Clearfield, I think the comments show that there are exactly what you
said- lovers and haters. Those who love this country and will not let it morph
into a 3rd world magnet; those who may love this country, but who definitely
love other people's money and are economically clueless. Different
approaches in an imperfect world.But the silly rantings and
over-statements about Beck's motives are not true. His audience knew his
Moore-killing fantasy was hyperbole; I'm sure the rest of the faux shocked
ones did, too. You can't get more transparent than sharing your intimate
family conversations, your disagreements with your spouse's Christmas list,
your college daughter's proclivities, or the challeges of raising your
handicapped child.So snip and chide, the man has fans. He has
faults and he waxes paranoid often, but he sure isn't making filthy remarks
about Bristol Palin and living in debauchery.Right on, BigSamoan!
You nailed it.
I wonder if Glenn loves President Obama, Any person with any liberal political
views, undocumented immigrants, or anyone who might disagree with him. You
can't pick and choose whom to love and whom to hate. Love God and love
your neighbor. Yes that means love those who don't share your political
views. Does Glemn practice that? It does not appear to me that he does. He
preys on peoples fears. What this country needs is more unity and forgiveness.
Not name calling and divisiveness. It's amazing what good can be
accomplished when people set aside differences and work together. Glne is
divisive. The comments on here prove that.
I am speechless. Prophet? Love? I can do without his from of love and prophesy.
If he were actually interested in love, his 'summitt' would include
more people than sycophants. Dialogue requires more than one voice. Talking to
yourself and your clones is not dialogue. What is spooky to me is that I
think he believes his ravings and that there are people who actually do not
recognize his insanity.
re:thebigsamoan"but to be involve in restoring our country back to the
way it was,"The way it was when the top tax rate was 70%? a
majority of workers belonged to unions? when people could support their
families on one salary? when CEO's didn't make 300 times the salary
of their employees? when people invested money in new technology and industries
rather than the casino called Wall Street and their credit default swaps? when
the Sherman Anti-Trust Act was enforced? When corporate lobbyists didn't
write legislation and pump money into campaigns? when legislators worked
together and knew compromise was required to move the country forward? Somehow, I don't think that is what you are talking about. So what are you talking about?
Liberals will always hate the truth- check what they have done with the in faith
in God. They try to rule by the minoroty in the name of democracy. All this is
done so they would not have oposition to their lack of morality - Which the
Bible condems. It's hard to talk with them because of their
hate towards everything that's is good.Glenn Beck expose them
and therefore they hate him.
I don't know that Glenn Beck is a prophet of love (he called himself a
rodeo clown--I agree with that), but I know that Donny Osmond is a soldier of
love! Sorry, couldn't resist.
I can tell you one thing, Glenn Beck is not a "Prophet of Love. He is a
radio and talk show owner and host and it stops there. A Prophet is appointed
through God and noone else. He should be ashamed of himself of even approving a
title like that. Sometimes I wonder about who he really is. I've always
liked him but as I said before...he is not a Prophet in any sense or word.
I am a big admirer of Glenn Beck. I think he has a lot of well thought out and
practical ideas. The Nation would do well to follow them--only then can we
restore our values and freedoms and make America great again. I encourage the
democrats to listen to him with an open mind. He is a refuge in a time of
storms. I don't know why many people try to tear down this patriot. Keep
God bless Glen Beck! I'm proud he's a faithful member of my faith and
I pray God will continue to prosper him and all his efforts to restore our
constitution and return our nation to the way our founding fathers intended it
to be. I understand he's a great dad and husband a very devoted to his
wife, children and his faith. I also heard he's an awesome Sunday School
teacher. My heart smiles as I think of the countless things he's doing to
help others even while the opposition continues to demonize and try to destroy
him. I love that he's fearless and unafraid to tell the truth as he expose
those who are plotting to destroy our government and constitution, our free
enterprise system, to turn it into some kind of European style socialist utopia.
I love that he started his company with only 6 employees when he left Fox and
now he's employed over 130 and planning to hire a 1000 more employee in the
the next 3 to 5 years. I believe the Lord loves him despite all the hate and
condemnation from those who loathe him. Go Beck.

gave women the right to voteThat was religious people.It was the conservative and religous that spearheaeded civil rights.most

ideolgy.That is a historical fact.Hateful is not telling
the truth or giving your opinions, views and beliefs.But to hate on
some for doing so is hateful.To make hateful comments about Glenn
Beck on every article related to Glen Beck is what is hateful.All
the haters here can come up with against Glenn Beck is a couple of out context
quotes from thousands and thousands of hours of broadcasting on radio and tv.WOW! Glenn is so hateful. NOT.
Oh, and one more question, becaue this is so much like the Texas megachurch
scene, is Beck a major leader of the Mormon religiion?
I'm scratching my head as I listen to the anti Beck rantings in here and
wonder how on earth can people claim they listen to him and hear nothing but
hate. Beck is neither for the Republican nor Democrat so the claim that all
he's doing is pitting them against each other is an outright lie. Also,
Beck never claim that he's a prophet of anything so I'm not sure where
this self righteous hate towards him come from. I listen to him as often as
I'm able to and every time he's telling his audience to return to God,
prepare for tough times ahead so you can help not only your family but others
who might need your help, to pray on your knees so your children can see you, to
stop sitting on the sideline but to be involve in restoring our country back to
the way it was, to not loose faith but depend on divine providence for
protection, etc, etc. I never hear any hate but he does passionately defend
against the danger of communism, socialism, and radical Islamic elements that
have infiltrated our government to destroy it. Go Beck.
'Restoring Love.' It will include a 'global tea party
summit,' a conference of conservative religious leaders, and a
concert-rally at Cowboys Stadium featuring inspirational music from a growing
roster of artists Beck is building," Coppins reported. "The goal, he
said, is to seize control of pop culture from the left by producing patriotic,
uplifting art — and use that new megaphone to promote a message of
enlightenment and love. The event sold out its 40,000 available tickets in less
than two days."Question: Will the tea partiers bring their guns
as per usual? Question: Will they burn the books of those they deem
impure?Question: Is this part of the renewal of fascism?
That is a disgusting amount of money. No radio personality is worth that kind
of money. Here's hoping he does some good in the world with all of that
Prophet of Love? Ha. Sure Glen. And Jesus was a prophet of hate and intolerance.
Neither is true, unless, that is, you switch the titles with the individuals.
Does anyone else here see all those red flags about Glenn Beck being called a
"prophet"...? I don't care what he's called a
"prophet" of, all I see are HUGE red flags. For sure he did not write
the article, but he can surely make known his request that that word not be
associated with him. Taken together with some of the other things he's said
and done, for me - a HUGE red flag. Glenn Beck is NOT my prophet.
The LDS church is smart for keeping its distance from him.
@Charles"do you have any problem with the "hate" that comes
from PMSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, NYT, MediaMatters, Malloy, Schultz etc?"I actually can't stand Ed Schultz (I'm not familiar with
Malloy). You're sorta criticizing entire entities (like even I would say
there are several good hosts on Foxnews, especially Shephard Smith in particular
who I think is one of the best in the entire industry) so I won't give an
agree or disagree to those, other than to say that I'm sure I disagree with
some rhetoric from each of them. Though I'm curious why you'd use a
sexist term when classifying MSNBC. "And I bet that 99% of you
have never listened to him."I was actually a big Glenn Beck fan
years ago. I'd listen to his radio show all the time and I was the one who
set my families' DVR to record Glenn Beck's CNN show (as well as
Maddow, an atypical combination). Once he shifted directions with his program it
started to get frustrating to listen to.
"loving" words from Beck:"You know it took me about a
year to start hating the 9/11 victims and families? I don't hate all of
them. I hate probably about 10 of them. But when I see a 9/11 victim family on
television, or whatever, i'm just like, Oh, shut I'm so sick of them
because they're always complaining. And we did our best for them."9/9/05"The only [Katrina victims] we're seeing on
television are the scumbags." 9/9/05"I think there is

Americans will feel that way."interviewing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the

Boy 0h Boy ! If only we could get it here in Australia. Would be really
good for me but better still for my wife as she was a Beck. Going back
100's of years, I wonder if they are related.
Really Jamshid. Are there not more important things to write about than Glenn
Beck? So, the "Prophet of Love" came out with another book
this year entitled "Cowards." In this book Beck asserts,
among other things that extremists are slowing Islamic law into our society,
religious leader Jim Wallis is politicizing the bible, and calls Senators John
McCain and Lindsey Graham RINOs. etc. Apparently name-calling is an
expression of love? Beck distorts, misinforms and lies regardless
of what his listeners believe. So why do articles promoting him keep appearing
@andyjaggy: 80% of the media votes Democrat. CBS' Moonves confirmed the
liberal bias in the news media. Cronkite recently exposed as a liberal Democrat.
Dan Rather fired for lying about Bush and his liberal bias is well
documented.You need to get a different news source if you
aren't aware of the liberal bias in the news media.@atl: do you
have any problem with the "hate" that comes from PMSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC,
NYT, MediaMatters, Malloy, Schultz etc? Or is it a one-way street of
dilusionment with you?The hate that is contained in almost every
post that complains about Beck is undeniably ironic. And I bet that 99% of you
have never listened to him.What's even worse is how the
"loving" LDS folks destroy him in their comments. (roll eyes)If you don't like Beck, don't listen to him. Don't watch him.
Don't read his books. Your problems are solved.
@jsfProgressives ended slavery, ended segregation, gave women the right to
vote. They passed the clean air act and clean water act, the civil rights act,
and the voting rights act. They're the reason we have workplace safety
standards and an 8 hour workday.
I think Beck is saying "progressive policies would harm the economy"
thus his saying they are is OK by alt. But the problem with progressives is
their continual attempts at social engineering. TheProgressives gave us the
following programs.Involontary sterilization of the feeble and mentally
ill.Racial sterilization for the improvent of race by elimination of one
race, Margeret Sanger, (Planned parenthood).Prohibition.The nazi
party's basis for the final solution. But first the elimination of the
sick, invalids and mentally ill. The control of diet and meals by
federal and state agencies.pc control of speech and thought.Yes
progressives don't want to destroy the economy, they want to control every
aspect of the economy and society.
The reason Liberals don't make money and no one watches their shows is
because they are horrible and don't tell the truth. People can tell when
the news is a bunch of hog wash. I appreciate a man who is making his own way.
No government money, no pay off's or bribes. He say's what he wants
and if you don't like it don't listen or pay for it.People
pay for what they want, good or bad. We live in a country that allows people to
make as much as they choose. Glenn just seems to have the right formula and is
also doing good things with the money he generates.

I used to really like Glenn Beck years ago, but I can't stand him at all
any more. He's so extreme and comes across as a real nut job. He give the
LDS church a bad name, too. Not a fan....
The author of this "bias" article called him a prophet. He would never
concider himself a prophet. He makes what he deserves and what the market will
pay. Those that condem this should look at people like George Soros who makes
much more and wants to take away free enterprise by manipulating markets and
buying policy changes.Glenn is a good man and his event is about
giving to others, a message of hope and encouragement to be involved in what you
believe. It's interesting to see the real hate in these comments about
Glenn who apposes violence and law breaking in all forms. He is encouraging
people to be free in every way.
Oh, Good Grief!This guy will do anything to turn a buck. It's
a wonder there are any people out there who still listen to him.It
certainly isn't much of a testimony of the collective intelligence of at
least some Americans.
@Mountanman"He is the alternative to liberal biased main stream
media that stopped being journalists and have become progressive hacks and spin
masters."Why do "conservatives" always think there is
some giant conspiracy against them? The media is part of some giant organization
to overrun the country and bring communism on all of us! As far as I can tell I
haven't seen any college or university programs claiming to educate people
in liberal media indoctrination services. Of course that's what Santorum
thinks all of higher education is...... so maybe people won't agree with me
there anyway. Has it occurred to people that maybe the media seems a
little bit liberal because a large chunk of the population is a little bit
liberal? Nah that couldn't be it, we have to find some sort of leftist
Yeah as soon as you lump everyone who disagrees with you into the category
"liberal" then I turn the station. I'm sorry the world isn't
divided into two seperate and distinct thought patterns, "liberal" and
"conservative". Most of us fall somewhere on the spectrum between the
two. I also don't believe that "liberals" are out to
destroy America. We all love America and want it to succeed, we just have very
different opinions on what needs to happen.As long as we continue to
think the world is divided into "liberal hippie socialists" and
"conservative fascists" then nothing will get done.
He made money from 911; called anyone weak and wimpy if they were not for war
in 2002 and 2003; media rewards him for calling others names; earns money
playing on people's fears and talking of end-of-the-world scenarios. Life
is eternal; life doesn't end. The world will be around for at least
another 1,000 years; go get a blue collar job and live on humble salary;
people with faith can live on humble salary and it all works out.
Beck's message certainly isn't a message of love. He also doesn't
have a monopoly on uncivilized, sometimes hateful, tone. The extremists on both
ends of the political spectrum pound us continually with messages of hate,
distrust, and disdain for others. I'm tired of it.
I remember a neighbor told me Glenn had said he wanted to kill michael moore. I
just looked and decided there was no use trying to disuade him because he had

tried to get rid of him, have boycotted his sponsors, threatend him physically,
even coming from the white house. They all laughed when he started his
new enterprise, thinking they had gotten rid of him. I think his pay at Fox was
20 million, now it is 80 million. Ha, Ha, ha! His radio shows are
sometimes serious, sometimes comedy and I love to listen to his banter with his
side kicks.So, yes, I guess he can laugh all the way to the bank. BTW, you people support billy mahar? Yah, let's talk about him.
He is nothing more than a highly paid (self described) clown, capable of
mesmerizing dullards into believing he has something to say.
He's a charlatan who preys on the ignorant. Shame on Beck and shame on
those who believe "he tells it how it is."
Liberals hate Glenn Beck but his influence and audience continues to grow. He is
the alternative to liberal biased main stream media that stopped being
journalists and have become progressive hacks and spin masters. More and more
Americans are rejecting the left. The proof is Glenn Beck’s and other
conservative voice’s successes! The free market at work!
@Counter Intelligence"The assumption that disagreement is HATE - is
the actual hate"I'm okay with disagreement, but when you
start calling progressives fascist, commies and nazis... that's not
disagreement, that's hate. It's one thing to say progressive policies
would harm the economy, it's another to say progressives actually WANT to
destroy the economy.
@redshirt maybe because of the fact that he attacks people that do not
share his views of the world by clumping them all under the term
"liberal" then sets out to misrepresent their views and the facts. How
many times has he been caught in his misrepresentation of the facts. I remember
at least a couple of "videos" that where not exactly what he claimed
they where. Maybe he and you should be careful accusing others of lying.
That should have been "profit" not "prophet" if the writer had
really wanted to be accurate. Profit is all he cares about.
I don't listen to Glen Beck radio, but anything he can do to unify those
with a hint of conservatism so that we elect a new president this fall is
@BoomerJeffTo quote Glenn Beck..."When I see a 9/11
victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, 'Oh shut
up' I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining."
–"The Glenn Beck Program," Sept. 9, 20059/11 victim
families needed to be exposed because they were hurting our country, economy and
Beck may teach love, but it is only love for those who think and feel exactly
the same way you do. He also teaches that anyone who disagrees with him is
anti-American or a Nazi or is someone who is trying to destroy America. Believe
me, we're not any of those, and I hardly "feel the love" when
someone treats me like I am. You can disagree with someone without thinking
they are Satan incarnate. I don't think it's healthy to be so sure
that the whole world is in on some grand conspiracy to hurt you and yours. Have
a little faith in your fellow man. Give other people the benefit of the doubt.
The article claims that several religious leaders will attend; I wonder to what
extent his LDS leadership will participate. Actually that was a rhetorical
question; the answer is “ZERO”. They don’t want even the
appearance that this cretin is speaking for them. Smart choice!
I am trying to figure out if the liberals listen to the same Glenn Beck that
this article does. The Glenn Beck from the article quotes liberals and exlains
what that means to the US social/political/economics structure. He tells people
to get involved and to act with kindness.I have not heard all the
hate speech that the liberals claim that Glenn Beck engages in. Tell us
liberals, why do you hate somebody who uses your own quotes to expose your lies?
Beware of false prophets.
Prophet of love?Call him a skilled and talented showman with a
particular point of view, but a prophet of love?
Glenn has done so much to educate and I really appreciate that. If you
haven't listened to his lesson on American History, you might find them
very instructional and fact based. He does a great job of vetting the facts and
presenting them. The truth is hard to hear and so some may call him
a hater. But if you listen for any length of time you will learn that he is
truly about love. I attended his Restoring Honor rally in DC and the love was
palpable among many thousands of people from all walks of life who he
successfully brought together and gave a message of peace, love, outreach and
motivation to support and strengthen our nation. There were NO negative
messages whatsoever. Only positive, uplifting messages of unity, hope and
concern for our nation.The mass media wouldn't cover the rally,
which is telling. If they had, many more millions would know that Glenn truly
is a messenger of peace and love, through truth and plain speakingIf
you don't know what I'm talking about, listen to him with an open
heart. You will be surprised at what you hear.
Glenn is a phony and a charlatan. Sure he exposes the globalist to a certain
degree. but he also protects them and is against any real solutions to fix our
country. He just wants to keep it Republican vs Democrat instead of American vs
Globalist like it ought to be. He is a patriot wannabe. He actually called for
Ron Paul supporters to be arrested for doing nothing other than protesting.
Glenn is the biggest fake I have ever seen. He is a globalist operating in the
disguise of patriotism.
At age 18, he was making a six figure salary which nearly destroyed him. Our
country needs farmers, carpenters, nurses, firemen, policemen, engineers,
military, doctors and teachers. We don't need any more radio people. A
very influential figure in Utah, spoke at the U of U's graduation 3-4 years
ago and said, "Go out in the world and work with your hands."
I like Glenn but in listening to him daily on the radio I really have to scratch
my head and ask what he really offers anymore. With Rush and Hannity you get
current pertinent news every day and they give practical info for conservative
Americans but Beck sort of drifts off into some global cloud of mush most of the
time and I have a really hard time staying focused with him.
I love Glenn Beck's program and hope his influence is getting bigger to
wake up more American people.
@BoomerJeff"He is exposing the individuals and groups that are
hurting our country, economy and freedom. "See, THAT right there
is why we claim Beck is a merchant of hate. This idea that "the left"
those "progressives" want to destroy the nation... that is hateful.
I'm a progressive, and I strongly disagree with many conservative ideas...
but I don't think they hate america or want to destroy it.
I love Glenn Beck's program and have watched him since is days on CNN. His
message has never been about hate. It is a message of truth. The problem is,
some people can't handle the truth, that's why they get all bend out
of shape over him. He is exposing the individuals and groups that are hurting
our country, economy and freedom. Long live Glenn Beck!
"The goal, he said, is to seize control of pop culture from the left by
producing patriotic, uplifting art — and use that new megaphone to promote
a message of enlightenment and love."And it will only cost $100
million to hear that message. I wonder if Glenn has ever read Peter 5:2?
If beck makes a nickel off of his radio show it would be appropriate to call it
'profit of lunacy'. Are we really this far gone?
This guy is unstoppable...He is quickly overtaking ElRushbo as the mentor for
the politicians, and the man who can make or break any career in 25 words or
less....Beck will soon be king of the castle, and the ayatollah of the
I have to wonder how his church feels about him declaring himself a prophet. I
am sure his faithful will find someway to twist it in their minds to be alright.
More like "Love of Profit"....
I don't get it. He just signed a big contract based on his ability to
arouse hate and now he wants to switch to love? Hate has worked so well for him
and the people who listen to him. Switching to love is akin to Romney starting
to caring about every day people now, after not caring about them one way or the
other has worked so well for him and gotten him to this point.
Prophet of love? that has to be the funniest thing I have heard in years. If you
read the full article is plan to spread love is to "seize pop culture pop
culture from the left" to "unify his value based audience " through
the use of "global tea party summit a conference to religious leaders and a
concert rally." It sounds like pandering to his base to me.
Before the Beck bashing begins, let me say I love this man. He tells it how it
is. Yes he says some controversial things, but if it weren't for him, I
wouldn't know a lot of what I know right now. It's partly because of
him that I got so involved in politics at a young age and actually have a voice.
Now, let the bashing begin.
Beck might be a lot of things, but a prophet of love? I usually just sense anger
and hatred when I have heard him talk.
Prophet of Love? I hope someone's trying to be ironic...
