Advertiser Boycott Sends Glenn Beck’s Paranoia into Overdrive

The massive exodus of advertisers from Glenn Beck’s television show appears to be taking its toll on the host. Beck went on a paranoid rant about Media Matters and liberal bloggers attacking him. Beck said, “What they have to do is break my legs. What they have to do is silence me. What they have to do is Sarah Palin me.

Here is the audio from Media Matters:

After falsely claiming that Media Matters is funded by George Soros, and fear mongering about Obama’s “civilian national security force,” Beck got to the root of his concern, “Unless you are preparing something else. Now that is a very good chance that if this gets traction, they will, right now preparing something to take me out and discredit me, but I think what’s happening is as our listener called in a little while ago, Char she’s a truck driver, she was in Wisconsin last night, and she said that she was called a racist because she was watching me, and you should see, we are compiling a list of all things that bloggers are calling me this week.”

He continued, “None of them are dealing with the facts. They are going after my religion. They’re going after my alcoholism. They’re going after oh well he’s just crazy, that I’m a fear monger, that I am this I am that. None of them are answering the questions, none, none. None are relying on facts to dispute…What they have to do is break my legs. What they have to do is silence me. What they have to do is Sarah Palin.”

First of all Media Matters is not a George Soros operation. It is a David Brock operation. Why is it that the right wing thinks that George Soros is the only liberal with any money, and that he is behind everything? Secondly, the source of Beck’s terror is that his viewers are called racists for watching. An advertiser boycott might not get him taken off of the air, but is show gets the racist tag, he is doomed.

Notice how he brought up the fact that one of his viewers was called racist, but he doesn’t mention why she was called a racist. Glenn, she was called a racist because the host of the program that she was watching decided one morning to call the black president of the United States a racist. Beck started this tsunami of boycotts and bad publicity all on his own.

It isn’t surprising that Glenn Beck is making a blogger enemies list. This is the kind of thing that paranoid people do. I disagree with anyone who attacks Beck for his religion or battle with addiction. Those are personal matters that have nothing to do with politics. In listing all of the things that people call him, he avoided the term racist. It seems that he doesn’t want to go near the race thing with a ten foot poll.

He can spread his conspiracy theories until the end of time, but you have to ask yourself, if so many people are out to get Glenn Beck, why is he still here? If anyone wanted to take Beck out that could. The truth is that his whole Chicken Little act is a gimmick. No one is out to get Beck. He is the Doctor Who of the right wing fringe. He goes on the air everyday and peddles politics based science fiction. It is shtick, and it has made him a millionaire many times over.

  1. and you stupid, brainless white male asses can pucker up and kiss Barack Hussein Obama’s tan, black, PRESIDENTIAL ass.

    Suck on that, whitie.

  2. “but you have to ask yourself, if so many people are out to get Glenn Beck, why is he still here?”

    Sounds like a threat to me. Must suck to have so few viewers on the lefty shows huh?

  3. Soros may not have founded Media Matters but “… As investigative journalist Byron York has noted, another Soros affiliate that bankrolled Media Matters was the New Democratic Network.”

    PS – You and your Arab Backed Imposter (run the anagram to BHO) and your ilk have been playing the race card for years before Beck called Obozo on it. Read the Oloser’s OWN book where he whines about white people; READ REV WRIGHT’S SERMONS that Obummuh listened to for 20 years (or was BHO too stupid to hear what Wright was saying?)

    And PS, keep wasting electrons on Beck’s advertisers -they are mostly just shifting over to other fox shows, and for the rest, lets see how fast you and your leftist dumpster diver friends can make up for the sales us REAL AMERICANS will pull from those foolish companies that you and that Communist tool Van Jones have suckered.

    Yes, he ADMITTED he was a communist, and yes, weak sister, communism IS bad.

    Spin on that, useful idiot.

  4. “….decided one morning to call the black president of the United States a racist. ”

    Actually, Obama is mixed race. His mother was a white woman. I think many people dislike that fact.

  5. […] The First Amendment is not blanket permission for any wanker to get up in someone else’s grill and be an ass. The First Amendment does not guarantee you an audience. […]

  6. This isn’t some big conspiracy on Beck. He simply doesn’t get the facts right so that he can better spread fear and hatred. Can’t blame advertisers for bailing on that. But they already knew he’s conservative, so that’s not the issue. He’d serve his cause better, and get his advertisers back, by sticking to the facts and making his points based on them, conservative as they may be. honda accord guy

  7. Americans need to wake up the fact that Beck is simply another opinion pushing charlatan who is a product of mormon cult theology and he mixes this with his personal make up as a dry alcoholic. And for the record, he is a Mormon and not a Christian. As someone with a graduate degree in religion, I can say with all qualifications that Mormonism fits all parameters of a cult and has none of the parameters of a religion. A cult is any group (regardless of its size) that interprets the doctrines of a religion in an unorthodox fashion. The problem here is the fact the most Christians do not understand the difference and they easily fall for the lies of Mormon missionaries when they come to one’s door. On Beck’s radio show and Fox Network program he consistent demonstrates all the unstable behaviors of a dry alcoholic which include grandiosity, judgmentalism, intolerance, impulsivity, ADD and indecisiveness. Alongside that reality, Glenn Beck does not possess a single ounce of journalistic integrity, has no college degree, has no qualifications and he is definitely not a true conservative. But then, what can anyone expect from someone who can’t find anything filthier than their own personal reflection. Since people like Beck cannot survive on the basis of any personal merits, they survive by putting others down with lies and half truths in order to feel good about themselves. The truth about Beck is that he a dry mormon alcoholic who never got the counseling required for alcoholics. To further complicate things and confuse people, Beck flippantly throws around Christian terms like “God”, “Jesus”,”Holy Spirit” as well as voices of other so called “Spirit Powers” on his radio talk show. Beck is a mormon in active standing with the mormon church and is not a Christian. Mormonism teaches many gods, that the god of the earth was once a man who attained godhood status, there is no trinity, the cross of Christ means nothing and that Jesus Christ and Satan were brothers. Because Beck does not possess a single ounce of journalistic integrity, he is the perfect abortion poster child for Fox Network. The people who love what Beck says are no different than the impressionable sheep who loved every speech made by Adolph Hitler in his early years when he brought Germany into an era of economic prosperity These same sheep also blindly followed Hitler into one of the darkest chapters of world history. Beck and the Fox Network both cater to the same lowest common denominator of demagoguery. Beck would not know the first thing about God as he is a mormon. Someone should ask him which of the many mormon gods he kept talking about during his argument with himself on Saturday on the square in DC. Like a typical dry alcoholic, Beck even lied on national television when he spoke about holding a document signed by George Washington. That event never took Place. Unfortunately, people who love being led around by the nose do not realize that Beck is talking about a different god than that of Christianity, Judaism or Islam and that he has been a product of mormonism cultism from the day he started doing a radio talk show as an opinion pusher. You don’t have to have a degree in psychology to see that he exhibits all the signs of a dry alcoholic. The only reason this unstable impressionable idiot fell into mormonism was because the woman he wanted to have sex with would not do so unless they got first got married and from that point, they joined the mormon cult. Glenn Beck is as big a charlatan as Joseph Smith or that 5th grade graduate (Charles T Russell) who started the Jehovah’s Witness cult. This is Glenn Beck in a very accurate and concise nutshell. Considering the fact that Becks personal views are extreme Marxist Libertarian, his form of patriotism is false and he is a person who has no real substance or depth. It will not surprise many of us when Beck’s next big thing is to come out of the closet and announce his homosexuality to the nation. Simply put…he is just another predatory neocon who is pushing the buttons of very ignorant & impressionable people who love being told what to think and believe. We live in a period of history where it has become very socially acceptable to be stupid and follow extremist idiots like Glenn Beck, Adolph Hitler, Sarah Palin, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh. Chicanery and lies are their middle names.
