Olbermann Mocks Glenn Beck’s Communist Buildings

On his MSNBC show Countdown tonight, host Keith Olbermann, in a parody of Glenn Beck’s communism in Rockefeller Plaza segment, exposed Beck and Fox News’ own communism, by revealing that Glenn Beck works at the Fox News building, which is also a part of Rockefeller Center. Thus Beck and FNC are also communists. Check out the video.

Olbermann pointed out that, “And finally the ultimate awful secret about 1211 Avenue of the Americas, a truth so shocking so horrorifying you must send your children out of the room immediately. I said immediately. Look at the website for 1211 Avenue of the Americas and behold the horror…That’s right Fox News is in of Rockefeller Center. Glenn Beck works in Rockefeller Center. Glenn Beck’s office building was designed by Wallace K. Harrison, and who is Wallace K. Harrison, the personal architect to the Rockefellers, the architect who designed the United Nations.”

It has been a while since Keith Olbermann tried to be funny, but what else could he do with something as crazy as Glenn Beck’s communist symbolism rant? If anybody had any doubt about what a hypocrite Beck is, this is fine evidence. Beck goes on the attack trying to link communists, the Rockefellers, and progressives, all the while not telling his viewers that he works in Rockefeller Center.

Once again, it is 2009 and only Beck’s most brainwashed viewers are buying into this communist nonsense. It seems that the more effective the ColorofChange boycott becomes, the crazier Beck is getting. Does he really believe that going on a communist witch hunt in 2009 is going to bring the advertisers back? I understand that Beck’s shtick is conspiracy theories, but he needs to pick a threat that isn’t at least 6 decades old.

  1. Glenn Beck needs to be thrown in jail, for causing terrorism.
    we as Americans must take a stand and boycott all those who harbor and support terrorists, and lock the terrorists up and destroy the key.

  2. First, the individual above? What kind of comment is that? Throw Glenn in jail on claims of terrorism? Really?…Obviously you’ve never watched his show.

    Secondly, It must suck for a guy like Olbermann to be on one of the worst rated cable news networks and does not get the viewers like Beck does or even O’Reilly for that matter. In fact lets compare…

    Neilsen ratings for Wednesday September 2, 2009

    Glenn Beck (5 pm) 2,676,000 viewers

    Keith Olbermann (8pm) 1,166,000 viewers

    Bill O’Reilly (8pm) 3,124,000 viewers

    Wow, no wonder the bashing of Fox News, can’t take the competition.

  3. MSNBC and uninformed Olbermann waste more time trying to discredit Glen Beck, and O’Reilly instead of digging into the Obama administration and Van Jones an omitted communist that Obama has known and puts this dangerous person as an adviser to him. That wasn’t coffee coming through your nose it was KOOL AID like Olbermann drinks and is such a bleeding heart Democrat can’t see the trees for the forest. This is why all of the MSNBC flunkies are tanking. We are in trouble and Glenn Beck is the only American not afraid of the far left nut jobs. Get your heads out of the sand.

  4. First of all you have to be smart enough to follow someone giving you facts instead of being spun by Olbermann who has no substance to anything he says. Keep watching Olbermann that’s your speed when you laugh about Van Jones a white hater and omitted communist now advising Obama. Prove Glenn Beck wrong with proven facts, he ask for that all the time. Put your money where your mouth is. O’Reilly would class you as a “PIN HEAD”.

  5. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and by many state constitutions and state and federal laws. Criticism of the government and advocacy of unpopular ideas that people may find distasteful or against public policy, such as racism, are generally permitted. There are exceptions to the general protection of speech, however, including the Miller test for obscenity, child pornography laws, and regulation of commercial speech such as advertising. Other limitations on free speech often balance rights to free speech and other rights, such as property rights for authors and inventors (copyright), interests in “fair” political campaigns (Campaign finance laws), protection from imminent or potential violence against particular persons (restrictions on Hate speech or fighting words), or the use of untruths to harm others (slander). Distinctions are often made between speech and other acts which may have symbolic significance. Efforts have been made to ban flag desecration, for example, though currently that act remains protected speech.

    Cuba got rid of all the people that spoke up against the government most were killed. It can’t happen here; really your thinking (“throw them in jail”) would take us in that direction. This is what Glenn Beck is talking about if you are smart enough to listen. Don’t give up your freedman listening to MSNBC. What Must We Do? Start listening to FOX NEWS.
    I saw it happen in Cuba.

  6. To all you right wing terrorists (and yes you are terrorists, why are you terrorist because true Americans respect the elected President) facts are Glenn Beck is wrong not on some things but on all things. First you need to realize that Glenn Beck is not a republican but a libertarian he not for small government he is against all government. Next you really believe that the Rockefeller’s would support communism you are nuts and do not know anything about the Rockefellers. You are against Obama why, you disrespect the man why (I know the reason why, you are all Racist) Fox says that Obama is indoctrinating the children did Ronald Regan indoctrinate kids (in 1988 when he used the platform to talk about cutting taxes) when spoke to school kids, how about W in 2001 no it is the duty of the president to help kids and parents to keep the children in school both black and whites (I know you hate a black man talking to your kids). The fact is you are losing, you are becoming the party that does not matter, when only 250 people show up at a tea party that is televised by Fox that should you that you are on the down turn. You are becoming more marginalized why because you showed your true colors, you went crazy after Obama took office it has not even been a year. You hate health care reform even though you Bible and your savior tells you to treat the sick, cloth and shelter the homeless. The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) what you tell Luke good store to bad the Good Samaritan did not make a profit. I know it is unconstitutional too bad the preamble says “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America” Wealfare is health and well being so grow up.

  7. I don’t usually watch Olbermann but I caught his segment on Beck’s rant (and yes, Beck looked like he was buzzed to the point of spontaneous combustion). It was the funniest thing I have seen in years. Although not so funny that people take this clown seriously.

    “I am a clown. I am a guy who just… I just want to have laughs and fun, I’m a capitalist, I want to make money, all that stuff.”
    –Glen Beck

  8. Really? We’re you also saying we must listen to FAUX NEWS for the past eight years when they said any criticism of the president and governmental policies was downright unAmerican and unpatriotic?

    You’re gonna compare what one commentator here said to Fidel’s Cuba?

    That alone, right there, disqualifies you.

  9. “Next you really believe that the Rockefeller’s would support communism you are nuts and do not know anything about the Rockefellers”

    If you want to get factual, study the fascination many Americans had with the Russian Rev and Mussolini’s Italian Facism in the 20’s and early 30’s. Then you would understand how El Duce can grace a building in Rock Center built in 1932.

    “First you need to realize that Glenn Beck is not a republican but a libertarian he not for small government he is against all government.”

    or

    “The fact is you are losing, you are becoming the party that does not matter”

    Which is it, i though you said he wasn’t a republican.

    “You hate health care reform even though you Bible and your savior tells you to treat the sick, cloth and shelter the homeless. The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) what you tell Luke good store to bad the Good Samaritan did not make a profit”

    That’s right his responsibility, not his governments. That’s why Mr Beck donates more to charity then Obama, Biden and many more politcians that are eager to spend others money without reaching into there own pocket. That’s a fact.

    “Wealfare is health and well being so grow up.” Classic mistake.

    “If Congress can do whatever in there discretion can be done by money, and will promote the general welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one subject to particular exceptions” – James Madison, Father of the Constitution.

    In the Constitution the word “welfare” is used in the context of states and not persons. The “welfare of the United States” is not congruous with the welfare of individuals, people, or citizens.

    Cya.

  10. Here’s a few facts for you. Diego Riveria added Lenin and the other controversal parts to the mural “Man at the Crossroads” after Rockefeller had approved the initial draft.

    Rockefeller asked Riveria to remove Lenin. Riveria refused, and Rockefeller had it destroyed. It wasn’t destroyed because a reporter made a stink, Glenn Beck outright lied about that.

    The fact is, the hammer and the sickle have been used since the Byzantine Empire as symbols of labour. Look at the Austrian flag. The double headed eagle holds the hammer and sickle. It predates the adoption of the hammer and sickle as symbols of the Soviet Union by 4 years.

    There is no evidence that the man in that mural ever represented Mussolini. Beck made that up completely.

    Finally, I find it bewildering that Glenn Beck, as a Mormon, would label imagery from the Bible as “Communist” . “They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not make war against Nation, an neither shall they learn war anymore.” is found in two places in the Bible, Isaiah 2:4 and Micah 4:3. These describe what will happen in the last days when the house of the Lord comes to Earth, and God rules the Nations. I don’t think you get much more anti-Soviet than that, given that they were officially atheist.

  11. Mussolini is not on a building in Rockefeller plaza. Beck made that up. There is no evidence that the figure in that mural was ever associated with him until now.

  12. Preamble We the People in fact in Welfare “The constitutional meaning of welfare is: 1. health, happiness, or prosperity; well-being”(W.C.Chang). “…the Supreme Court has interpreted the institution created as a government over the people, not an agreement between the States…”(Samual Freeman). Do I need to quote more all Constitutional scholars agree that Welfare is a benefit to the people and not the states, a simple Google search of scholar’s papers will show you that. Glenn Lee Beck (born February 10, 1964) is an American radio and television host, self-described libertarian [1] from Glenn’s wiki that he edits himself. The OR part is that I was addressing morons like yourself people who believe that there is a movement out there to over throw Obama there is not all you republicans fail. From Rockefeller’s BIO “In 1933 the Rockefeller family wanted to have a mural put on the wall in Rockefeller Center. Nelson Rockefeller wanted Henri Matisse or Pablo Picasso to do it because he favored their modern style, but neither was available. Diego Rivera was one of Nelson Rockefeller’s mother’s favorite artists and therefore was commissioned to create the huge mural. He was given a theme: New Frontiers. Rockefeller wanted the painting to make people pause and think. However, the painting caused great controversy due to the inclusion of a painting of Lenin (depicting communism), which upset Rockefeller. Rockefeller asked Rivera to change the face of Lenin to that of an unknown laborer’s face as was originally intended but the painter refused. This must proof positive that the crafty Rockefeller was a commie or not as you can read he never was and or Murder by Injection by Eustace Mullins, chapter 10: points out that the Rockefeller is a commie thing has been going on for years even though it has already been discredited. I hope now you will understand when I call you a JACKASS.

  13. First of all name calling shows who the jackass really is.

    Quoting the Framers is probably more effective then quoting scholars. I dont believe Chang or Freeman knew any of the Founding Fathers personally. (i guess neither did you or I – so since there were no welfare or health programs instituted by the founding father’s ill have believe they would not agree with your point of view)

    oh please let me quote more author of the document not someone who is thinks about it 200 years later. “With respect to the two words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” – Madison

    I can give you just as many of constitutional scholars who dont agree with your constitutional scholars point of view. Same with the Supreme Court – liberal and conservative appointees have different views of the welfare clause. Its circular argument.

    Freeman is a Harvard guy, not exactly a conservative institution. If you feel like learning instead of hollering, research all the Harvard law students that found there way into prominent positions from the Supreme Court to the White House who studied under Felix Frankfurter.

    Im not a Republican. I didnt i mention anything about overthrowing Obama – that came from your angry heart.

    And who said Rockefeller was a communist? I didnt nor did Beck. Fact is many people at the time – artists, scholars, etc – where fascinated by communism and fascism because they appeared so successful and we were in the midst of the Great Depression. It wasnt a bad word yet.

    I shouldve referring to the bronze to avoid you going through all the trouble of pasting about the mural. I paste this-

    ‘Youth Leading Industry’ by Attilio Piccirilli of the Piccirilli Brothers studio. A youth sprints ahead of two rearing horses that pull a chariot. The youth represents the then ‘New Spirit’ of Italy. The second figure, the charioteer, guides industry and commerce to the future.

    Mousiloni was a rock star at the time; why so hard to interpret that as El Duce himself. Like i said in 1933, no one would’ve batted an eye. Also, another piece of his art in Rock Center was removed after WWII because it was deemed too facist.

    Dont be so angry, you can express your thoughts like a human being.

  14. also, Standard Oil helped finance the Russian Revolution. The Rockefeller’s wanted to cash in on communism after the Czar was overthrown.

    The Rockerfeller’s also funded the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Germany, a eugenics center in the late 20’s – what where they studying hmmm??.

    I can go on about nefarious relationships, albeit i was all about the GREEN.

    Rockefeller’s Communist? no
    Capitalist? to the end.
    Progressive as Beck is inferring? worth a debate.

  15. @, Judging Beck’s credibility based on popularity is labsurd. All your stats show is that there are 2M idiots who like him, and probably a few thousand who watch just to laugh. There are many millions more who consider themselves conservative, but who (thankfully) see Beck as an extremist.

  16. GLENN BECK IS A MORMON ALCOHOLIC WHO SPEWS INCENDIARY LIES/RUBBISH TO INCREASE RATINGS AND INCITE RAGE FOR FINANCIAL GAIN ONLY AMONG PRIMARILY OLD, WHITE, BLUE-COLLAR, UNEDUCATED, WING-NUT, RIGHT-WING MALES AS EVIDENCED BY HIS INSANE RANTINGS ABOUT COMMUNIST ET AL SYMBOLS THAT DO NOT RESIDE IN NEW YORK ARCHITECTURAL BUILDINGS AND MURALS.

    KEITH OLBERMANN EXQUISITELY AND BRILLIANTLY PARODIES THIS IDIOTIC FOOL’S TYPICAL RAVINGS.

    ANYONE WHO VIEWS BECK FOR ANY REASON OTHER THAN TO LAUGH IS ALSO AN IDIOTIC FOOL. HOW SAD.

  17. Look up the definition of boycott. The victim of an effective boycott does not make $25 million a year and work for a network that makes more money than Google.
    Great boycott. Bang!
