Glenn Beck -- Hypocrite or Shill

Did anyone see Glenn Beck's Thursday 5-1-08 show? Where he aired much longer video clips of Rev. Wright, instead of the brief 'snippets' the media had been flooding us with. I can only come to the conclusion that he is a hypocrite or just another shill in this media monster.

I believe these three vids should cover it all...

Part 1 >>

Part 2 >>

Part 3 >>

I liked Glenn... but I was so pissed of after watching this show, it prompted this barrage (sent to Glenn)...

You clearly solodified you are a 'shill' -- OR -- you are incredibly stupid and hypocritical... and here's how I get there...

Rev. Wright -- It is extremely unclear to me (and others I spoke to) how you construe Rev. Wrights 'anti-gov't' sermons into 'anti-american' or a 'black theology' movement. He is simply 'calling out' this corrupt gov't of ours... no different than you, Lou Dobbs or Hal Turner. How is this not hypocritical on your part, of monumental proportions...?

I'm not 'for' Obama -- as u surely know I'm a W.A.R. fan -- -- but isn't that what we are looking for? Someone to fight for 'change'? To change this corrupt system? I don't think Obama has the right 'change' with more gov't -- the right change is less gov't -- enter Wayne Root to end this 'nanny state' we live in.

And do you not see a problem with these people we have in the midst of our gov't in powerful/influencial positions...?

And this piece of # among them, as well, with this crap...?

So -- you are clearly a shill for this gov't's propaganda machine -- sucking in people to add to 'the list' and stirring up anger to create 'insurgent US citizens' by THEIR definition -- OR -- you are the most moronic, hypocritical person to ever walk the face of the earth. Which is it?

Seriously... how can you be so 'awake' to all the other stuff and so incredibly blinded by all this. It's a complete mystery and you may have lost at least one viewer -- though, I tend to keep my eyes on the ones I least trust the most... I'm sure you confused and disappointed MANY regular listeners and [viewers] with [your] show from Thursday. Good luck... don't you have kids? Nice legacy you'll be leaving for them.

I pretty much said it all there... he's either a shill or a complete moron... there is no other option here.

Well... maybe one other option... of being a flat out racist.

He certainly has zero integrity or credibility with me anymore.

We are in a lot of trouble people.

the lies and deceit and the amount of harm and death that " they " cause
is astronomical ..

lie, lie ,lie lie .. its non- stop

really...just really what is this " AGENDA "..??

gm food, drugs , war , terror, greed, religion, politics, health,
power, ego , patents on animals and seeds, eugenics , nazi, kkk ,
msm, ufos, haarp, mk ultra, banks, ...ect..ect...

this is our world too

with all the effort, money and resources that go into
all this evil , we could EASILY put all this into LOVE.

this all makes no sense... its sure not the reality I envision.

people........ this does not make sense... wtf is going on here???


sorry for the rant, but you know what I mean ?

I've never seen/heard this guy b4 up here in Canada - don't think I want to, he makes my skin crawl - such brazen stupidity and/or attempt at manipulation. Did he have no idea that viewers might actually make up their own mind about the clips, and that it wouldn't be what he hoped for? Hopefully middle america isn't as dumb anymore as he believes.
Thanks for the links to the reverend tho, it was nice to see the fuller picture, a very needed balance to the isolated clips the MSM has been showing.

Glenn Beck is another treasonous sock puppet for war profiteers.

He has as much integrity as the bacteria that lines the anus of a dung beetle.

Although Glen gets so far ahead of himself he often makes himself look like an idiot, I do enjoy his show sometimes for entertainment purposes. He has interesting viewpoints on some subjects, and outright crazy ones on other subjects.

I will never forget when he said the most intelligent this I have ever heard:
"Bk now serves breakfast all day. So come on McDonald's, I WANT SAUSAGE AND EGG McMUFFIN AT NIGHT TIME."

I want McMuffins at night time too Glen. I sure do. Bring on the all day Mcmuffin!!

at first i caught little segments of beck's show,,, and i thought this guy seems good and pretty levelheaded. then i decided to watch the full show a few times....consensus----total bliphead!!!!!!!!!

he even turned on ron paul and went msm on him,, with 9-11 rhetoric and such to basically "slander" him,,,,,that was the last straw

incidently,,, he has to have bodyguards for him and his family because of threats from viewers,,,,serves him right

obama, obama,,obama------do you know how much crap is out there on clinton and not a word is mentioned
the two kids killed on tracks in ark, and billy's involvement

campaign fraud with peter paul

real estate fraud

all the mysterious deaths

hillary calling for the waco invasion to end it because it was upstaging her horrible health care proposal

i could go on with many, many more but we all know and yet it's all ignored

if we're gonna slam candidates lets pile it all on fairly

granted i'm ron paul all the way-

also, i'm starting to think this rev wright was paid off or set up to take out obama,,,,,people will do many things for money and power,,, it wouldn't surprise me in the least.....even if not from the outset,,,,,but from recently

Well, at least I'm not the only one who feels this way. I even bought Glenn's book. It sounds a lot like the 'old' Glenn Beck, with humorous yet thoughtful insight into many of today's problems.

But somehow he went totally ballistic over Obama (even before 'Rev. Wright's Greatest Hits') and now is milking every possible interpretation of anything Knight or Obama says (once I even heard him analyzing why Obama paused when he did, and whether he subjugated a verb properly and what that meant... seriously!).

Not very long ago, I was listening faithfully, as I love his humor and usually his insight... but this latest tirade against Obama is turning me off to him pretty quickly. I heard Knight's sermon this morning, and while he did make a few conspiratorial references, and maybe didn't fully understand some things about history, what he said was true. We did steal the land from the Indians, we did enslave Africans, we did imprison Japanese Americans during WWII... but it's the government he is preaching against, not a race.

Besides, how can I hold being conspiratorial against someone?

Alright... good to see pretty much all who replied are on board with me on this one. I thougth it may just be me... only briefly mind you... I was quickly backed up by a co-worker that night in another building who also watched separately. She could not believe what we had just witnessed and probably convinced her that I'm not all crazy talk all the time

I caught about 10 minutes of Glenn Beck tonite by accident.
I couldn't believe it! He was defending the oil company executives
who are now in front of Congress.
He's even a worse shill for corporate greed than I previously thought.

Glenn Beck is both a hypocrit and a shill, The nice thing about it is that he eventually works his viewpoint toward your own, although it most likely moves on from there.

Rome "stole" the Britons land from them. The Romans also enslaved the Britons. I want Italy to send me a written apology for what they did to my ancestors.
