I like to ask everybody about this ignorant fool. all of his shows it's about Iran and what he speaks doesn't make any sense. In his shows he also said the Iranians want to destroy the Americans and that we are testing Scuds on back of container ships to kill Americans. What is up with him?

Just thought I would provide a link for those that don't know about him. I don't care for the man either, personally. I'm sure there are avid listeners that will respond though.

I watch his show on CNN sometimes, I don't agree with him
on everything, but I think he makes some good points about
the middle-east, though I do dislike how he refers to the
Iranian president as "Tom".

As for his claims, well I don't pay to much attention to them,
and I don't think his viewers and listeners believe everything
he says.

Also, Mehran I believe when he says Iran is responsible for
9/11 because apparently some of the terrorist responisble
got there training anf some funding from the Iranian gov.

But I have to agree when he says Iran as a whole and all
Iranians are evil or whatever, it is bullcrap.

I dislike the Iranian government though.

those 9/11 terrorsts were Saudi arabian and not Iranian related in anyway. They were members of Al-qaeda and we hate them because they are sunni extremist and we were once going to invade afghanistan because of them. I hope the average american doesn't believe in anything this guy says. All of his shows is just aimed at us Iranians..what did we ever do to americans??

Wow... some of you people are worse than what you're accusing Glenn Beck of being! I've listened to his radio show plenty of times (haven't in a while, though). I've only watched his television show half a dozen times or so. That being said, I would bet my life that Glenn Beck never said anything to the effect that "all Iranians are bad" or "evil" or whatever some of you have quoted him as saying.

And just because you may disagree with the things he says doesn't necessarily make them "lies" or make him an "idiot". From what I can tell he is a fairly intelligent, creative and well-spoken man who speaks his mind regardless of the popularity of his opinions.

I certainly don't agree with him 100% of the time. Heck, it's probably not even 50% of the time. But what I do know is that when he isn't simply stating his own opinion, he almost always quotes a source. He's not going to say that Iran is practice-launching Scud Missiles off of freight ships unless he has a source for it. And if the source isn't exactly on par with the Associated Press or NBC News, then I'm sure he stated so.

What I'm saying in a nutshell is that if you're going to come on here and start a thread alleging someone's lack of intelligence, then at least use your computer's "spell check" software. If you're going to call someone a liar, then do the research and actually quote them correctly. I think you're a little more than hypocritical on both counts.

In closing, I must add that from what I know of Mr. Beck as a person, and in spite of what his political views may be, he comes across as a genuinly good person. He is a recovering alcoholic, a proud adoptive parent of a disabled child, and a faithfully married man with a good set of morals. I think we would all be doing him a great injustice if we didn't make it clear in this thread that both his radio and television shows are more "entertainment" than they are "political debate" or "intellectual conversing". Most of his comments, skits and discussions are aimed at making people laugh. And regardless of his views, I feel that he accomplishes what he sets out to do. I've often heard callers who completely disagree with his political views yet are still huge fans. He's always willing to put someone on the air who has opposing views and he's not one to scream talking points rather than openly debate issues.

For those who don't know of or have never had the opportunity to see or hear Glenn Beck, I would probably describe him as "Michael Savage Light". He's not nearly as controversial as Savage. And he certainly has way more credibility than Savage. From what I've heard of Savage's background, he just makes controversial statements for the sake of ratings and not because they are his true beliefs. I think that is untrue of Glenn Beck. So maybe my label of "Michael Savage Light" isn't that good after all?


Anyway, I just felt the need as a casual listener/viewer to come to Glenn's defense here. I'd be interested to know if the person who started this thread was listening or viewing Glenn's show for the first time. I am of the belief that before you make a judgement of someone's radio or television program, especially one that involves opinions and debate, you should give them a good 1 to 2 weeks of your full attention first. Once you get a better idea of the host's personality, personal history, values, etc. then you are in a much better position to come on here and call them an idiot and a liar.

Well, I've never listened to the guy before myself, so I thought a little research was in order.

The most glaring thing I found to support Mehran's complaints was this August 10th broadcast, where he comes right out and says the only reason we are really in Iraq is to stop Iran. He is making some pretty strong allegations against the country.

Glenn Beck - August 10th


BECK: And again, and I told you before we ever went into Iraq we're not going in there for weapons of mass destruction. That's important and that's great and everything else. We're going in there because Iran is the root of all evil over there. Iran is the root of all of the problems over there. And that's why we were going in. Well, Iran knows that, and now that we are really deep in the battle -- and everybody else might think -- I mean, all these just imbeciles who are, "What are we doing over in Iraq?" Read. For the love of Pete, read. Open your eyes.


Also during this broadcast he has some pretty strong things to say about Muslims who are not stepping to the forefront to stop the extremists of their religion. But he elaborates on why, which I think is a pretty sad commentary on all of us, Muslim or not.


" He predicted that the result will be that "[h]uman beings are not strong enough, unfortunately, to restrain themselves from putting up razor wire and putting you on one side of it," adding that "when people become hungry, when people see that their way of life is on the edge of being over, they will put razor wire up and just based on the way you look or just based on your religion, they will round you up." He concluded: "Is that wrong? Oh my gosh, it is Nazi, World War II wrong, but society has proved it time and time again: It will happen."


There is an audio clip on the link to actually hear him saying these things for anyone who wants to hear the wrods instead of reading what he says, to confirm what context it is being said in.

For anyone who catches the reference to the day 10 planes go into the Atlantic, I do believe this broadcast was made the day that the plot was thwarted.

Mehran? Where'd you go? If you are in fact Iranian, we have a lot of questions forthcoming.

Maybe start a thread on your leaders so we can help each other understand your perspective as oppossed to just relying on our limited information from our own news sources. Your country is in the spot light big time right now. Share with us. give us and opportunity to discuss your leaders and ask questions, I will do my best to keep an eye on it so that it doesn't generate into bashing if you seriously want to open a dialogue for this. I think we need to see and discuss the world view of Iran at this point vs. what the Iranians see. The hey with Beck and lets get some perspective.

I have seen his show and I will have to say that he just bring out his own personal point of view.

In that view, all muslin are here to hurt us, Iran is the root of all evil and US needs to attack Ian.

Many times his opinions border on propaganda and he likes use information any way it fits his agenda.
