He may have a few points, but this is too extreme, calling the president communist, Beck is obviously bitter McCain didn't win. I see Glenn Beck becoming the next Bill O'Rielly if he hasn't already, it's good he's off of CNN now he can say what he REALLY wanted to say all this time. He's a radical no doubt about it.

Actually, he wasn't too impressed with McCain, either. I doubt he's bitter about him losing, more like not as "enthused" as everyone else over Obama winning.

But...he's right. You really can't see it? In a capitalist economic system, the government does not tell a privately owned business how much they're allowed to pay their employees. It is a move towards the socialist end of the spectrum.

If you don't like Beck, that's fine. But take a step back, ignore your personal disilke for the guy for a few minutes, and actually analyze the situation with an open mind.

we have a mis informed man here.

#1 Beck did not like mccain either because he was not a TRUE conservative. he said good things about ron paul

Bill Orielly is not a conservative or repulican. he is an independent. he always has views on the left and right, he doesnt believe in capital punishment but believes in pro life *a liberal and conservative idea*. sorry but the only republican on fox news night time is sean hannity

Right, and calling out the president on his lies regarding the $200 million a day oil war is what, not allowed? I recall during that time you were not allowed to utter a thing against mr Bush in the eyes of many here and out there in america because he "was the president!" and that you were "anti american freedom!"

Glenn is free to speak his mind, but to be frank;

a) Obama has only started his term, his policies are yet to take affect on the nation in the long term, and here Mr Beck is already adding fire to the straigh from the 1960s "commie hunt" in an effort to cause unneccassary divide.

b) Considering Mr Bush acted like a commie under the noses and with support of his fellow righties, I find it hypocritical that individuals like Beck here pull off this stunt of a president yet to actually serve his term to be judged, and yet praised the Mr Bush during all that time.

c) The "commie" hunting stunt has been tried on every liberal candidate, and it getting old. We'r done with the 1960s, we have moved on, folks should get over it. Its outdated.

d) The OP, like Mr beck, has the right to his freedom of speech as well.


All i can say is if you don't like the guy don't watch his show.


So if somebody was on air spewing mislead propaganda all over the airwaves, would you just "not watch his show"? There are some of us who actually care about the facts, about the truth, and as it is our right as well, we will voice out our opinions in conjunction to disinfo agents like Mr Beck.

Right, and this justifies them spewing rightwing propaganda on behalf of the right... and yet their not... republican? Please. I hear so many former Bush supporters who are now attempting to distance themselves from the rightwing mess of the last 8years by proclaiming their "differences" from the republican party.

Same folks, different cover.

Fox news is "independent" and MSNBC is the liberal mouth piece. Thats very hard to stand by in the face of the majority of americans and the world my friend. In regards to MSNBC, they appear to be the only ones focused on the real war on Osama in Afghanistan aqnd Pakistan, you know, the one that attacked our nation and killed our fellow americans. These days fox news is more focused on how successful the surge was for this $200 million a day pointless Iraq war and how big and bad the yet to be accused Obama admin is.

No solutions, no care about the real war in afghanistan, just their committment to the minority rightwing fringe. You can defend them swatman, but their doing this country a disservice.

When it comes to bringing up information about our financial mess, which includes inflation and our debt, Beck is probably number 1 against this of all of them. I like that.

BUT...his rants on religion are extremely annoying (I can't stand it). I hate it when people try to "Preach" to me what i should be believing. Glen Beck does it all day.

But he does bring up issues like Mexico that everyone has been ignoring. If he were smart he'd stop with the religion/conservative BS and just stick with finding the corruption in government.

IF i had a radio/tv show, I'd focus everyday on corrupt government. I'd make a complete mockery of these scumbags. I'd bring things to light that others won't discuss.

GB only slightly grazes theses issues...then turns into another Hannity or O'Reilly the rest of the time.

Most of the radio personalities in radio and tv suck. It's funny when you switch from Bill Press to Glen Beck and hear them both attacking each side like little kids in a school yard making themselves both look like idiots at the same time.

yes thats one of the major reasons i dislike the man, his rightwing christian rant. Maybe in part thats what fox news requires of him for more appeal but then still, the guys just another bushie in my eyes.

I know it's annoying. I hate it when people do it...anyone which includes people I know personally or from media. I'm not anti-religion, but that stuff needs to stay out of politics.

Because when they do they turn into preachers. If i wanted to go to church...I"D GO TO CHURCH.


I don't listen to everyone, but both sides have good points.

The problems is they surround it with so much BS that they completely discount themselves.

This is everything i've noticed in the 8 months i've been following politics. It's really all a joke.

Sometimes I'd rather go back to not knowing anything at all as I get so angry about it sometimes.

Beck's abit over the top at times, but he's right. This nation is heading down a steep slippery slope. But one cannot entirely blame Obama. He has the Congress in bed with him, and lest we forget, W started this bail out BS prior to leaving office. The people in our government have failed us....on both sides of the aisle. I do not believe any of them are there for the good of the nation any longer. They are all greedy, useless, hypocrites.

If Obama was a communist i wouldn't mind him coming to the UK and running my country..true communism deserves a shot as a political structure.
But yeah Glenn Beck..typical diatribe.

Under any other circumstance I would agree with you. In my mind the ONLY thing right about this whole bail out gig is the fact that if my tax money is going to be used to keep a bank afloat, it better not be wasted on paying a multimillion dollar salary to someone who is partially responsible for the mess we are in. I do not buy the "have to pay for good talent" argument in this one....most times I would, but not here.

Don't think ya ever have to worry about "true" communism working. There will always be someone or some group who feels that he or they are entitled to more than the other guy.

So he's suppose to stop airing his show because of you?
People whine about there "freedom" being taken away,
But when a man tries to use his freedom of speech, his is bash.
No one makes you believe what he says nor does anyone tell you to watch his show.

You simply can't go and see something you don't like and then say " Hey i don't like that...Get him off the air". If you believe this then you are no better then the NWO.

Did I say he should stop airing his show because there are folks who see through his propaganda? No I didnt say that. Why do you feel the need to lie about what I said?

Once again your implying i said something, why dont you actually counter my posts instead of making these things up off the spot? He has the freedom to spew his lies across the airways, and we have freedom to speak out against his lies. Can it be anymore clear?

Why dont you go and tell your Bush buddies there about their thoughts on freedom of speech and questioning the former president over his war of lies.


No one makes you believe what he says nor does anyone tell you to watch his show.


Oh ok, so what your saying basically is that we cant be critical of the man or speak out about the garbage he spreads along the airwaves because... well nobody tells us to watch him? That doesnt make any sense jester.

How about whenever you are critical of keith olbermann, ill just continously tell you that you dont like his show so you dont have a right to speak out against him. Hows that freedom of speech for ya? Thats exactly what your doing. It doesnt make sense to what your trying to defend here.


You simply can't go and see something you don't like and then say " Hey i don't like that...Get him off the air". If you believe this then you are no better then the NWO.


Excuse me, so this is your version of "freedom of speech". We cant be critical of an individual because we dont like his show.

I tell you what jester, how about I reserve my right to freedom of speech to speak out about the man whether I like him or not and you reserve your freedom of speech to praise him.
