Beck Claims Obama Modeled Himself after Al Capone

On Fox and Friends this morning Glenn Beck took a break from calling Obama a racist, socialist, fascist by comparing his administration to Al Capone. Beck said, “This administration is, they modeled themselves I guess, after Al Capone. You take these guys on and they will bash your brains out…”

Here is the video courtesy of Media Matters:

Beck was asked why the insurance companies haven’t fought back. He answered, “Because nobody’s listening, nobody’s listening, look I did a monologue, what was it, last Friday I think with the baseball bat, and made it very, very clear that this administration is, they modeled themselves I guess off after Al Capone. You take these guys on and they will bash your brains out. That’s what they do. That’s what they’ve done to Fox. That’s what they’ve done to the Chamber of Commerce. That’s what they do to everyone who stands in their way, so you have to ask yourself, as Sean Connery did, what are you prepared to do. If you are going to get into a fight with these guys, you better be able to battle all the way to the end.”

It is absolutely hysterical that Fox News would claim that the insurance companies haven’t fought back. I guess all those millions of dollars spent to lobby members of Congress, run television ads, fear monger, and disrupt town hall meetings in August don’t count. Only FNC could take the position that the insurance companies are the victims here.

Notice that according to Beck, he doesn’t do commentaries, he gives monologues, like an actor, and his information about Al Capone seems to come from the movie The Untouchables, which is a work of fiction. However, it is fascinating to watch the right wing whine about Obama being a strong president. This is the same party that has spent decades touting their strength and painting Democrats as weak.

Republicans love a strong president, when he is a Republican, but strong Democrats are socialists or fascists. There is an inconsistency in the right’s portrayal of Obama. On one hand, they say that he is weak and always trying to apologize for America, but they also claim that he is an iron fisted mobster.

The reality is that when most of America looks at Obama, they don’t see a mobster or a fascist. They see a president that they personally like. Beck’s characterization is so far out of the loop that it could only appeal to the most hardened Obama haters, which coincidentally, also happens to be Fox News’ audience.

  2. I watched the “monologue” that Glenn gave concerning this. It was a little over the top for me(because of the scenes from The Untouchables with no disclaimer) even though I do watch Glenn all the time….and no, I don’t hate Obama. Having said that, however, sometimes it takes the ridiculous to make a point that people will understand and I think that is Becks forte. To make things larger than life to get peoples attention and then share the intended information actually takes some serious talent. It’s when folks get stuck on the theatrics and refuse to listen to the intent of the message that we get bad Glenn Beck jokes.

    Glenn Beck and Fox News aren’t the only people to liken Obama and His Administration to “Chicago Thuggery”. The idea of it is all over the internet and even other news outlets so it’s not an unknown. The Alinsky-style attack on FOX from the White House is indicative of bully pulpit power plays and if they do it once, they will do it again. All we need do to see this is true is sit back and watch…….even Glenn Beck.
