To "dLange" it isn't a conspiracy theory when his sources confirmed
that the Saudi national had a 212 3B file created on him. That is a specific
file reserved for known terrorists. That file was also created just after the
bombing when they police took him into custody, but shortly after released him
after some Saudi royalty made some calls to the WH. Is that a coincidence or is
it possible that there was a connection?
to RedShirt, Beck's latest conspiracy theory that I heard him propose on
his radio show, was that there was a specific Saudi national that was behind the
Boston marathon bombings. He alleged that Obama was helping this Saudi to
escape justice, and that he would produce more irrefutable proof by the
following Monday. He said that that specific Saudi was a very very bad man. Of
course none of his proof was ever presented. We now know that no Saudi was
involved in the Boston Marathon bombing. Beck is nothing but a charlatan and
snake oil salesman, willing to enrich himself off the fearful and gullible.
To "Kate Hutch" how sad that you can't forgive Glenn Beck.He has repented of his former DJ ways, and has turned his life around.Can you tell us why you can't forgive a penetant man?
play by the rules: Here ya go: "When Beck and Hattrick produced a local
version of Orson Welles’ "War of the Worlds" for Halloween —
a recurring motif in Beck’s life and career — Kelly told a local
reporter that the bit was a stupid rip-off of a syndicated gag. The slight
outraged Beck, who got his revenge with what may rank as one of the cruelest
bits in the history of morning radio. "A couple days after Kelly’s
wife, Terry, had a miscarriage, Beck called her live on the air and says,
‘We hear you had a miscarriage,’ " remembers Brad Miller, a
former Y95 DJ and Clear Channel programmer. "When Terry said,
‘Yes,’ Beck proceeded to joke about how Bruce [Kelly] apparently
can’t do anything right — about he can’t even have a
baby."" Glenn Beck clawed his way up by being cruel. Never
I am so glad I left Utah. Flimflan men like Glenn Beck just too easily weasel
their way into the hearts and minds of the gullible. How are those gold
investments workin' out for ya?
To "Most Truthful and Patriotic" maybe George Soros is considered bad
because of the economies that he has destroyed, and not because of his
politics?Also, look at the difference. The Koch Brothers are
spending their money to make people free so that they too can become wealthy
like th Koch Brothers.George Soros is looking to subjugate people
because he has the arrogance to think that he knows better than you do how to
run your life.You might as well be saying:Satan=BadJesus=GoodThen argue that Satan is really good and Jesus is
really bad.To "dLange" Prove it. Glenn Beck backs up all of
his theories with quite a bit of evidence. You, like many of your ilk, speak in
generalities with no evidence.To "Lagomorph" look at what
Liberals are doing now. They gave up passive protests, and are now engaged in
intimidation and violence. Just look at the violence in the OWS movement and
the Unions. Why people who claim to be peaceful keep backing liberal groups is
a mystery to me.
Beck preaches hatred and bears false witness repeatedly with all his conspiracy
theories. None of his fearmongering predictions ever comes true. If he is
serious about this love and kindness, let him begin by asking forgiveness for
his prior rants over the last several years.
Redshirt1701: "[Y]ou realize that there is a difference between adopting
somebody's tactics and adopting their philosophy... So, the question to
ponder is, what is so wrong with adopting the same methodologies that MLK used,
but not his politics?"Of course. Your point is well taken.
There is nothing wrong with adopting strategies of nonviolent civil disobedience
as espoused by Thoreau, Gandhi, and MLK. In fact, they are excellent approaches
to achieving social change. One can support them even if you favor the Mexican
War, British colonization, or poverty.I guess, for me, the cognitive
dissonance comes from the fact that passive resistance has been nearly
synonymous with liberal causes, while the Right tends towards the hawkish in its
response to just about everything (e.g. 2nd Amendment to overthrow tyranny).
The recent embrace by Beck (and a few other conservatives) of pacifism hits me
as insincere. I'm glad they have finally come around, but it's
suspect based on their previous behavior. It is accentuated by his previous
harsh criticism of King's politics.
George Soros, wealthy liberal: badKoch Brothers, wealthy
right-wing Tea Party backers: holy
I'm waiting for our "soon-to-be" neighbors, who (supposedly)
installed an "off the grid" system in Idaho for Beck, to find out that
he's laughing at the whole thing and referring to it by cursewords.But Glenn's got his picture plastered all over the affinity/MLM
website for this stuff ... so which side IS he on?
To "Lagomorph" you realize that there is a difference between adopting
somebody's tactics and adopting their philosophy.MLK had good,
peaceful tactics, but some of his philosophies could be very bad. Those are 2
different things.So, the question to ponder is, what is so wrong
with adopting the same methodologies that MLK used, but not his politics?
playbytherules: "I watch him and listen to him and when I get frustrated
about the direction of the country he reminds us to use the tactics of Ghandi
and Martin Luther King Jr."Beck's embrace of Gandhi and MLK
seems to be a recent phenomenon. I recall a segment he did a few years back
centered on an old (1960s) interview with Andrew Young. Young said something to
the effect that King, witnessing the widespread poverty in the US, was ready to
advocate expanded government welfare programs, but was "not very
socialist." By the end of the segment (in the time it took me to take I80
from Redwood to the 6th South exit), Beck was calling King a "radical
socialist," totally distorting Young's words. Mind you, the Young
interview was referring to a time before LBJ's Great Society programs when
many were seeing existing relief efforts as inadequate.
Nothing brings out howls of protest and hyperventilation from the lefty loons
like Glenn Beck having success!
To "LDS Liberal" again how is that damaging to the US? It hurts the
radical Muslims. According to the data, Glenn's estimate may be low. The
terrorists that he was referring to were not only the terrorists actively
engaged it terror plots, but also their supporters. According to a Pew Research
poll, the number could be as high as 33%.So again, how is it
damaging to the US to state that there is a group of people who want to kill
everybody in the US?How is warning us about a potential threat a
danger to us? If you were headed into a dangrous situation wouldn't you
want some warning?
Re: "Please don't label me a liberal based on my comments."Beg all you want, but when your comments hoe right down the liberal
line, we can only assume you believe what you say and are, therefore, a
liberal.One would think that liberals who are ashamed of what
liberals say and do would quit being a liberal.As I did, when it
became clear to me that one cannot be both liberal and truthful.
You gotta love the HATE-filled comments towards Glenn Beck from so many who
CLAIM be be all about love and tolerance. I guess he just brings out the bad
in some people.
Redshirt1701Deep Space 9, UtYou have yet to give us any
specifics for how Glenn Beck's message is damaging.11:03 a.m. July 8,
2013======== He tells you that 10% of all Muslims are

terrorists?]"These people are animals!"--RedShirt - that is pretty damaging.Shall I go on, and on and
To "atl134" the Romney mandate was not advocating personal
responsibility. The system prior to any insurance mandate advocated personal
responsibility.Tax cuts have little to do with reducing deficits.
Spending less than or equal to what is taken in tax revenues is what cuts
deficits.Actually charity on its own would be sufficient because
people would have more of their own money to spend if the Government didn't
have such high tax rates. Just look at the charity hospitals and their ability
to serve.If you limit government power, by default you limit the
power that corporations can exert on government. If there is little that the
government does, there is little that corporations can do to influence it.Being prepared for an apocalyptic event is not the concern. Imagine the
peace of mind knowing that if you lost your job that you have sufficient food
stored to last 6 months.You show that you are closed minded when it
comes to those that you dislike. Bush pushed the same policies that Obama is
persuing, yet you hate Bush for his involvement.You have yet to give
us any specifics for how Glenn Beck's message is damaging.
@RedshirtAgain, I was a fan of Glenn Beck, apparently open-minded to you
means having to agree with him. Oh and... I'm a Progressive...
I disagreed with most things Bush was advocating... because he's not a
Progressive. "What is wrong with wanting spending to be within
what they take in tax revenues? "I disagree with the means by
which Beck and conservatives support reigning in deficits particularly where it
involves somehow giving tax cuts to the rich."What is wrong with
personal responsibility?"You tell me, you're the one who
opposes the health insurance mandate Romney created based on personal
responsibility."Is loving our neighbors and being personally
involved (not leaving it up to a government agency) in caring for them a bad
thing?"Charity would be insufficient on its own."What is so wrong about setting limits to government power?"Depends on how extreme you want those limits to be. I'd like some limits
to corporate power as well. "How about being prepared for an
emergency with food and water to last weeks?"At least the
apocalyptic urgency attached to it is not nearly as bad as Alex Jones.
To "Wonder" it is the fear of government that made this country great.
People did not want an all powerful government, so they set up a government that
was as small as possible but was able to maintain the peace. Their first
attempt with the Articles of Confederation failed because the federal government
was too powerless, they had to add a bit more power to get the minimum.Explain how returning to the same ideals and principals that made this country
great in the first place is a bad thing? Is loving our neighbors and being
personally involved (not leaving it up to a government agency) in caring for
them a bad thing? How about being prepared for an emergency with food and water
to last weeks? What is so wrong about setting limits to government power? What
is wrong with wanting spending to be within what they take in tax revenues?
What is wrong with personal responsibility?Please name some
specifics about what it is that Glenn says that is so bad?
This Glen Beck is a real stand-up character. I appreciate his efforts to save
humanity and enjoy his terrific literary work.
"Most of the people who attack Glenn have never really seem him. Mostly they
go by what they hear on MSNBC, etc."=====================================MSNBC? I think most people
who have an unfavorable opinion of Glenn Beck base it on what comes out of the
mouth of Glenn Beck.
@RedShirt -- Actually, if anyone is destroying this nation, it is zealots like
your beloved Glenn Beck. For the life of me I can't figure out why ultra
right conservative (tea party types) are so fearful of everything and everyone.
To "1aggie" and if you read the Forbes article written 1 month later you
find that "Beck will have doubled the revenues of his company, Mercury Radio
Arts, from $40 million to $80 million" Glenn Beck doesn't earn that
much money himself, that is what his company generates in revenues per year.To "atl134" it isn't a Moroni's promise thing. It is
a simple fact. If you go into a situation prejudiced, you will not comprehend
or understand anything that is presented that goes contrary to you preconceived
ideas. You, and many others of you ilk may listen to the words Glenn says, but
you miss the message because you assume that he is lying and assume that
anything he says is wrong or is hateful. So, you only hear what you have
already decided will be in his message.You see hate because you
choose to see hate. In actuality he is trying to get people to be more civil to
each other, and show each other more love. He is concerned with the direction
the nation is headed financially, and the destruction of our freedoms.
Progressives are destroying the nation, Bush was a Progressive.
I submitted a very nice discussion which was neither excessively verbose nor off
topic. It was not rude or 'raunchy' to Utah standards. It was not
@PlayByTheRules"So only those you approve of are entitled to the
spirit of God?"Not at all. Anyone is entitled to the spirit.
God, however, has not called Glenn Beck to be his mouthpiece as a prophet. There
are too many people who act like he is, though.
re:StraitpathAbraham H. Foxman, national director of the
Anti-Defamation League, took issue with Mr. Beck’s depiction of Mr. Soros
as a “Jewish boy helping sending the Jews to the death camps,”
calling it “offensive” and “horrific.” On
Tuesday on his Fox program, watched by about 2.8 million people, Mr. Beck said
that during the Holocaust, the 14-year-old Mr. Soros “used to go around
with this anti-Semite and deliver papers to the Jews and confiscate their
property and then ship them off.” (2010) Glenn Beck
roused the NRA's annual convention this weekend with his attacks on New
York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but he also aroused criticism by a major
Jewish group for depicting the mayor giving what appears to be a a Nazi
salute.The head of the Anti-Defamation League called Becks'
comments "deeply offensive on so many levels," and B'nai
B'rith called for Beck to apologize."Glenn Beck, the
keynote speaker at the NRA's annual convention, trivializes the Holocaust
when he compares New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to Adolf Hitler,"
B'nai B'rith told ABC News.
@Redshirt"I don't think you are listening to Glenn Beck with an
open mind. "Don't give me that Moroni promise stuff for
Glenn Beck... besides I was a fan of his, i recorded his CNN show for years on
the DVR and would always listen to him on the radio on the way back from school
when I'd commute. It's only the last few years when he's gone
much farther and seems to have lost a lot of that joking attitude he had that
made me fine with him and i disagreeing on things. Now all I see is hate for
just about everything and everyone I support. Pardon me for not buying all that
loving neighbor stuff when he thinks progressives like me want to destroy this
One valuable thing Glenn Beck did was let us know who George Soros is.
re:RedShirt"you realize that Beck doesn't make much money for
himself,"From Deseret News May 2012"Beck ranked No. 23
with an estimated annual income of $80 million. By way of comparison, last year
Beck ranked No. 30 with an income of $40 million, while in 2010 he was No. 43 on
the list with estimated earnings of $35 million."
To "DucatiCR" it isn't that hard to come up with the theory that
there are those Islamic leaders that want to destroy the US, if you just listen
to them. Just take the last last President of Iran for an example. He wants to
destroy the US.To "ThornBird" you realize that Beck
doesn't make much money for himself, but he sure is employing a lot of
people with his shows and projects. Can't say the same about most of the
political commentators on the Left. They seem to get huge paychecks, and that
is where it ends. Beck's company makes quite a bit of money, and there is
nothing wrong with that.To "atl134" and "TMR" I
don't think you are listening to Glenn Beck with an open mind. Your mind
is already made up that whatever Glenn Beck says is wrong. He could have Jesus
standing next to him confirming everything he says, you you would still have
some excuse as to why Glenn is wrong.
I don't know why DN news refused to post my earlier comments. Glenn Beck
on air has voiced his hate for Pres. Obama. He likes to ridicule people on the
air. He said he would like to strangle Michael Moore. My best friend hopes he
is the keynote speaker at a Cache Valley SA conference. I hope he is not
invited. There is no need to demean or ridicule others. Please don't
label me a liberal based on my comments. Not a Beck fan.
Interesting how progressives preach love, tolerance, freedom of thought, choice
and fairness.....except when conservatives express their views. What a
RE: Really??So only those you approve of are entitled to the spirit
A lot of events going on in Utah. So why do Glenn Beck events garner so much
attention from the DN? Is there a financial connection? It seems a little
fishy to me.
I love how those who know everything about Glenn Beck have no clue about what
happened this week with Mercury One and The Man in the Moon.
"When we joke that Beck fans think he's a prophet... it's because
of statements like that."You are right on target there. I was
disturbed by the Facebook comments I read about people "praying for the rain
to stop so they can hear the important messages from Glenn Beck."One Facebook poster even said "The spirit is so strong here. He has an
important message for the world."I am okay with people going to
see his show, but don't turn him into a prophet, because he is not one.
I' m conservative, but people following this guy! Be aware about following
false prophets and in this case HIS doctrine, not all the guys out there that
use the flag and the word freedom represents the same idea is which they were
@the truthActually wait a minute..."There has never been
any vitriol or anger on any Glenn Beck Show... Glenn Beck's shows are only
filled with love for country and family and church, and good values and
principles,and hate for those that would and want to destroy any of the
above. "There's no vitriol or anger... but there's
hate for those who disagree with Beck? (It does go to disagreement since
immigration reform, climate change regulation, Obamacare... basically almost
everything that isn't his brand of conservatarian is considered destructive
towards that which he values. As a Progressive it's pretty easy to see what
he thinks about people like me.)
"Glenn Beck's shows are only filled with love for country and family
and church, and good values and principles"We are not talking
about the same guy right ? This guy its nuts, too bad he is LDS, now everyone
think that I' m paranoid like him! He is just trying to tear this
country apart by destroying every single idea out there but not HIS.Too many "wackos" from the right and left side today... He is one of

members of various religions who respect and admire one another."From the guy who said that people should leave their churches if they teach
"social justice"..."I don't think there's a
more patriotic state on the Constitution. It may rival Texas. I know that hacks
off my home state of Texas, but I don't think there's anybody who
upholds the Constitution and love of country as much as Utah," Beck said.Utah is last in the nation in percentage of people serving in the armed
forces.@sixpacktr"Too bad you can't open your eyes
and ears to the words and message Glenn has been stating for quite a while
now...."When we joke that Beck fans think he's a prophet...
it's because of statements like that.@the truth"There

how come as a Progressive I see all sorts of rants against Progressives on his
radio show, his TV show, his e-mail newsletter (i actually used to be a fan
before he went off the deep end)?
In response to the posts directed to me: 1) "You have not met him" -
yes, I have. I met Mr. Beck and his family at a non-event. He seemed nice
enough. 2) "You don't watch Beck" - yes, I have. As mentioned in
my post, I watched him for a solid week and since then tune in periodically. I
am not impressed. His tactics are charlatan-like: he relies on principles
palatable to most (i.e., love is good, big government is wasteful, etc.) and
then he makes silly arguments that are shrouded in these emotive principles.
His audience is easy prey: they are convinced that the world is all wrong and he
plays to fear. Thus, a powerful connection is made. 3) "name a specific
example of his meanness" - the week I watched Beck he demanded that Cass
Sustein, a superb scholar, be fired from the White House. What was bizzare to me
is that if Beck had a modicum of sense he would have realized that
Sunstein's writings (which I have read) are in sync with Beck's vision
of limited government.
I find it very strange that DN will not allow comments giving examples where
Glenn Beck has stated things which turn out not to be true, or times when he has
brought public condemnation upon himself from Jewish groups, BUT will allow
comments from those extolling his "correctness." Why would
that be? Why would DN be censoring these comments? They adhere to the stated
standards and guidelines!
I do not sense in beck 'love of fellow man'. For some, he seems to
harbour loathing, even hate. His hyperbole and lies do harm to the national
discussion. He is one thing though; loopy as a loon. I guess there's
entertainment value in that. I watched him once on tv write a few inflammatory
sentences on his crazyboard, and then circle random letters in them to spell out
some or another topic he wanted to rant and/or weep about. That was the basis of
his argument, random letters selected from sentences he created. He went on as
if there was some sort of underlying truth magically brought out of the
randomness, but all he really did was prove he has a basic ability to spell. And
stick a few pictures up for incendiary effect; swastikas or a stalin or two. And
to make stuff up on the fly. Now that's showmanship. As to his filling
stadiums, PT Barnum was right, and becks' exploitation of Barnums' law
is how he does harm.
Many, many DN readers appreciate the somewhat more neutral atmosphere of the
Deseret News comment forums.Salt Lake City, in particular, is a city of
changing demographics. Smaller areas of the state are coming along, as well.Lots of diversity! Lots of folks with a variety of opinions!The flavor
of this newspaper is changing just like the world.The predominant church
seems in favor of more diversity, as well.Maybe years ago,
"everyone" may have thought "the same way". Not in 2013!Thank you, DN!
These comments are proof of the adage that a little info is a dangerous thing.
Unfortunately, Beck's "paranoia" too often turns out to be correct.
(See Arab Spring, NSA scandal, economic collapse of 2008 just to name a few.) As
for the cash, so what? He took a big risk leaving Fox, and I'm glad it paid
off for him. And I always like people who trash Utah's caucus system.
The caucus is made up of...wait for it...CITIZENS. That many people choose not
to participate is a reflection on them, not the system. Choosing candidates
solely based on a primary means the guy with the most cash wins.
to sixpacktrYou neglected to mentioning opening your heart &
mind?to Cats"Most of the people who attack Glenn
have never really seem him. Mostly they go by what they hear on MSNBC,
etc.,"I watched his 1st show on Headline news. It was nothing
more than Lou Dobbs watered down for the American Idol crowd and its gone
downhill from there. His show on Rupert's Propaganda network
was typical right wing rhetoric with crocodile tears & psuedo-intellectual
paranoia.For the record, Erin Burnett & Charlie Rose are the
only talking heads on w/ news analysis and commentary programs that aren't
It is so good to see that at least out here in the west the evil of socialism is
held at bay - for a little longer anyway. Whether you agree with Beck's
style or not, you must be thankful for that. When I see Utah come out in force
for Beck I think back to uncounted times when conservatives have been pilloried
and forced off the stage by socialists, union thugs and Democrat goons who were
then given a free pass by the press. God bless America. God bless Utah. (I still
wonder whose side the Deseret News is on. Their fence sitting has to be
One thing is for certain. Those who spend their time putting down Glen Beck
could find way more constructive things to do with their time and energy.
Whether you like him as a person or not he has been behind many worthwhile
projects to help people. If our nation is to survive it will be the people like
him who are working to make it a better place to be that get the job done. While
those on the sidelines griping only add to the problem. If he gets rich doing it
then more power to him and those who help. Love of fellow man is much more
worthwhile than finding fault with everything that is done. It is also important
to be able to discern the difference between good and evil and he along with
thousands of others works to promote good and point out the evil.
Glenn Beck, while informative on the issues of today, is laughing all the way to
the bank with the money people give him. He is a good show to tune into when
one wants to feel paranoid, and wants to wring their hands with the next
profound thing Beck says. He has studied scripture and writings, we can have
the same knowledge if we just read.
Glenn Beck's definition of patriotism is basically agreeing with Glenn
Beck's politics. You are unpatriotic if you disagree with his politics.
Interesting how Glenn Beck's "love" coincides with his big
paychecks from these events.If Glenn is so worried about our nation and so
hot to change the government to his way of thinking, why does he not run for
political office? He would be putting his money where his mouth is.Romney
did it.Glenn Beck and Donald Trump...now there's a ticket no one
@TMRYou have OBVIOUSLT never listen to any Glenn Beck show. There has never been any vitriol or anger on any Glenn Beck Show.If there is any vitriol or anger it is purely from the left.Funny how someone who bothers to comment from LA about anger and vitriol, and
their comment is only filled with anger and vitriol and hate and derision and
lies.Glenn Beck's shows are only filled with love for country
and family and church, and good values and principles,and hate for
those that would and want to destroy any of the above. So which side
are you on?
Glenn Beck on the far Repub right = Michael Moore on the far Dem left. Michael
Moore's "Farhenheit 9/11" was skewed and unfair to George W. Bush.
I guess there were some people on the far, far left who took it seriously as
"truth". And then in 2007 or 08 we have Glenn with his "expose"
of George Soros on Fox "Fair and Balanced" news, complete with creepy
music, dark shadows and other props...but no more "fair and balanced"
than Michael Moore on George W. Bush.Both Glenn Beck and Michael
Moore are carnival acts.
I am not a Glen Beck fan. However, his popularity reminds me that there is a
huge division in our country. Much of that division focuses on the constitution
and our liberties. Some focuses on our role in other nations. And then there is
the rift over taxes,Obamacare, families, global warming and entitlements. Add to
that unemployment, social security and immigration and we have a recipe for
hostility.It is sad that the elected officials pay more attention to
the self-serving "mainstream" press than to the concerns of their
mainstream constituents. While I abhor revolution, the number of citizens
aligning with conservatives and constitutionalists points toward what founding
fathers declared. "...mankind is more disposed to suffer while evils are
sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the form to which they are
accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably
the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is
their right, it is their duty to throw off such government and to provide new
guards for their future security."Good luck America. Hopefully
we won't need a revolution to bring the president and congress back to
Glenn Beck: Goldmonger and Godmonger to the gullible.
Most of the people who attack Glenn have never really seem him. Mostly they go
by what they hear on MSNBC, etc., I don't agree with Glenn on everything,
but one thing is very clear--he is very sincere about everything he believes and
does what he does for that reason. I appreciate his bringing his show to Utah
and hope he will continue.
@TMR,You hear what you want to hear. Too bad you can't open your eyes
and ears to the words and message Glenn has been stating for quite a while
"I don't think there's a more patriotic state on the Constitution.
It may rival Texas. I know that hacks off my home state of Texas, but I
don't think there's anybody who upholds the Constitution and love of
country as much as Utah," Beck said.Wow! What praise for a state
that uses a caucus system instead of allowing its citizens to choose candidates.
A state that upholds weird and funny redistricting so that one party will
control that district.
@TMR Nicely put. I don't understand the ardor that people have
for Glenn Beck. I get the whole small government thing but some of his ideas on
how to get there are a little bewildering if not downright loony.
At the end of the first quarter:Attendees: 15,000+Detractors/TMR: 1TMR, what is so comical to you about a message
of lightening governments load by being more charitable?
Fantastic week of wonderful and uplifting events.
Funny how those who know Beck is full of hate, never offer examples. I found
that he encourages love and respect. I watch him and listen to him and when I
get frustrated about the direction of the country he reminds us to use the
tactics of Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr.
" He envisions growing kindness across America, and specifically, faithful
members of various religions who respect and admire one another."Call me skeptical, but the man who wants "faithful members of various
religions"... spends 3 hours a day, five days a week, complaining about
Islam and how it is trying to bring down the American way of life... Maybe if he practiced what he tries to preach I could take him seriously, but
I guess I will wait and see.
Glenn Beck is simply another form of affinity fraud so prevalent in Utah. It is
What hidden gem of paranoid inspiration has Beck found for us now? We in Utah
hold our breath for another new Beck side dish. Under what rock will it come
from this time? How will it taste? My guess is bitter.
How interesting: Glenn Beck delivers a message of love. A few years back I
watched Mr. Beck on Fox for a solid week. All I heard was vitriol and anger. I
am glad to now hear he has found "love." While this hard turn to agape
love smacks of opportunism, at least it is an improvement. History is replete
with political charlatans and we are fortunate to have one of the better ones on
exhibit. May Mr. Beck continue to emerge once in a while if nothing else then
for comedic relief for most and inspiration for few.
We love Glenn Beck. Thanks for coming to Salt Lake City with your show. Come
back soon! And, thanks for helping us remember and realize that each one of us
can make a difference even though society looks so bleak right now.
