This should be interesting. I've watched him enough to realize he is anti-Democrat and anti-Republican. So am I. Imagine that?

He is kind of like a liar test. He says the same things I read on here and yet people who say the EXACT same things as him on ATS hate him? Could it be the people he truly upsets are all single Party hacks pretending to be something else? It would seem so.

People claim they want people like him on the air, but when it happens? No wonder this country is such a mess. So many two faced people pretending to be who they are not.

Its the same old nonsense. People scream free speech is my right when it applies to them, but let someone else speak their mind and they want them shut up right now. That does not give me much hope as it seems most people fit that mold.

The fact he is under this attack gives him more credibility in my mind. How many pundits on the air have dared to take on both the D's and R's. Not many. I hope he has good security as he is attacked from both sides by lunatics who want to shove their own views down everyone's throats while they pretend to believe in freedom of thought and speech.

One thing I've found very interesting is that when I check out the things he says, they turn out to be accurate and true? Perhaps truth is what is pissing everyone off?

Oh well the intolerant Hannity crowd can just change the channel until he comes on and the Pelosi clones can talk knowledgeably about a show they have never watched while inventing new lies to tell about anyone who won't let them dictate their thoughts.

What I can't figure out is how he got on the air in the first place? How does somebody who speaks out against both the right and left pull that off? Perhaps it is because we are winning the war of idea's as the lies of the right and the left are being brought out into the light of day?

The Right lies, the Left lies and perhaps, just perhaps, the chickens are coming home to roost?

For those of you who hate this guy even though you have never watched and know nothing about him; perhaps you should stop letting people lead you around by your nose.

To Hannity and his crowd, it could be that decision makers at Foxnews realize that Partisan reporting is on the way out and they are getting ready to change with the market. Both Bush and Obama have been so divisive and done so much harm that people are waking up.

I personally hope he is a sign of things to come. It was getting really hard for me to find anything to watch on any news channel.

Now if this could just overflow into the next round of political candidates and give me somebody to vote for.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled programing. The Right and the Left tearing each other apart while your beloved leaders sit in back rooms in the dark cooking up new schemes to divide you even more.

It looks like we have a dream team. Over 3,000,000 viewers
watched Glenn Beck. He gets a little crazy sometimes but we love him.

Drudge Report


well...that's less than 1% of the entire nation...compared to 18% of the entire nation that still thinks the sun rotates around the earth. so...they still have a large demographic to pull from.

Wow, didn't know you were a mod...

You give a link to a photoshoot of Glenn Beck as proof that all he says is a lie?...


BTW, I was in the military too, and so have been many members in the forums...

At first when the stoies about the FEMA camp came out, or at least the first time I heard of them, I didn't believe them.

It is true that some of the camps don't seem to be for anything bad, except why are so many at the same time being renovated? And there are some pictures of just some military installations. But the thing is, if you read the FEMA papers, they are authorizing the construction of detention camps inside miltiary bases for civilians not only military prisoners, and they are doing this more than usual, as if knowing something will happen that will make them need these installations.

Now if you add this to the FACT that the DHS under JAnet Napolitano has labeled most Americans as "possible terrorists".

If you add this to the fact that even Emmanuel Rahm has stated that "if you are in the no fly list, and you are a possible terrorist you shouldn't have a right to bear and own guns", and if you have any grey matter left in your brain to put these and other FACTS together, maybe you will come around and see why so many of us are concerned about this...

[edit on 28-8-2009 by ElectricUniverse]


I say the same thing, F that, why give a gun to someone we think might cause harm to something, that's like giving a suspected pyro a lighter or a match with hay. Something you just don't do. I live on a base that's being renovated, you know why? Because some of the living conditions are POS. That's why. Give me a reliable source saying that we're going to detain civilian prisoners. The possible terrorist thing I really don't know about, give a source on that too, and a definite definition of "terrorist" according to the DHS. This is a "deny ignorance" site right? Well I'm ignorant to that Janet N. and DHS accusation. Give a .pdf file of these FEMA files, and give me the page. For these FACTS.

BTW, this wasn't the argument at hand. We were talking about that fear mongering, liar named Glenn B.

I'm curious? Are you guys paid to bring up Palin in every conversation no matter how unrelated? Do you get a check for every time you use her name in a sentence?

No I did NOT vote for Palin but this is reaching the point of absurdity. She does even hold office anymore.

Sorry for the commercial interruption - back to the bickering.

That can actually be said to be true about CNN and similar media that dwell in the indoctrination of the feeble minded for a "perfect society under a Communist/Socialist goal"...

After all CNN's founder is a known Communist who admitted himself CNN international was an idea that fidel castro gave him...

So let me see...believe the lies and twisting of facts a news media which is dedicated to Communist/Socialist ideals?...or listening to a news media that dwells with the ideas by which the Republic of the United States was founded on?....

Hummm....... I'll take the second one any day of the week, more so since I lived the true Socialist/Communist ideals in a Communist dictatorship...

False, (and stupid.)

You're going to say Ted Turner is a self proclaimed communist?

In addition to donations, Turner has devoted his assets to environmentalism and capitalism He owns more land than any other American[6] and uses much of it for ranches to re-popularize bison meat (for his Ted's Montana Grill chain), amassing the largest herd in the world. He also created the environmental animation Captain Planet and the Planeteers. Turner was inducted into the Junior Achievement U.S. Business Hall of Fame on April 26, 2007.

Born Robert Edward Turner III
November 19, 1938 (1938-11-19) (age 70)
Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.
Nationality American
Occupation Media tycoon
Net worth ▬ $2.3 billion[1]

He is America's largest private landowner, owning approximately two million acres (8,000 km²), greater than the land areas of Delaware and Rhode Island combined. According to documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, Turner's land has a higher gross domestic product than Belize.

That's a quick wikipedia search of him.

I guess you can try to call him communist with his Portrait of the Soviet Union docum. in 1988

newsbusters.org... 7/10/22/mrc-presents-worst-notable-quotables-past-20-years

You can find all these on a quick google search, but by all honest opinions, he's not a communist, or a socialist. I should know, I'm a socialist.

He could say he's a communist, his lifestyle and business would dictate otherwise, and I doubt I'd see him at an of the Socialist parties.



IMO he would be ridiculed out of the room, because by all definitions, he's a capitalist, through and through.

Sarah Palin has incredible political power.
One "Death Panel" charge from Sarah on her Facebook and
the politicians in Washington DC go running.
They ripped out the "End of Life" government counseling.
That is why the Left Wing Loons are terrified of Sarah Palin.

Being one who thinks both the Left and the Right are "Loons", I guess I get the point. I can't however reconcile Palin as being on topic or even remotely related to this thread.

It should be a pretty blatant and predictable tactic by now. The MSM/DNC use the same tactic over and over again, always on prominent right leaning voices. Its always the same line too. They're "too religious", "stupid cowboys", "racists", "hate mongers" and "divisive".

You would think a community like ATS could see through it.

I haven't read this entire thread, in fact didn't even scan all the pages.
But, a few things about Beck and his show.

We watch it, and we don't believe everything he says. I also think his theatrics are too much....maybe he thinks he needs to spice it up for the audience *shrugs*


BUT, I lived through the late 60s hippie/revolution/anti-war thing. I paid attention then.
I remember those radical groups he talks about...SDS and Weather Underground
I remember them. I knew some radicals.
These people talked about getting inside and taking control...just the way Beck says these people are doing. Working within the system to take it down. It gives me chills because it brought back memories of forty years ago. I don't think most people took all those radicals seriously back then, then the War ended, the 80s happened, etc.

Fast forwrd 40-odd years and now we have ACORN, the Tides Foundation and the Apollo Alliance.

These groups have an agenda. It not about Democrat or Republican, either. It's not about this administration or the last or the next.



 

please note:
All links are from wikipedia....not the most reliable source but it give an idea to you and you can do your own further research.

I was just talking about that, about how a lot of the peace and love crowd were the ones railing against the corruption and now they have become the corrupted.

The funniest thing to me about all this is that Beck, all though he sensationalizes a lot of things, is he is actually talking about a lot of the stuff that people were always complaining about how no MSM were covering.

Now somebody in the MSM is actually covering the topics and yet they rail against him because he is on FOX news. What I find interesting is most of the people saying the negative things against him are the ones that are quick to defend Obama at all costs.

I don't necessarily agree with all of what Beck says and thinks he is somewhat of a fear-monger, but he talk about a lot of things that a lot of people didn't have a clue about.

What I see is a bunch of bitter people that realize their ideas are not popular and would rather attack and try to defame somebody because what they says disagrees with the way they think.

I do know this much though, when the left starts attacking someone relentlessly resorting to personal attacks and insults, then I'm going to listen to that person a little bit closer and research what the person is saying just a little bit deeper.

There is an ancient tactic that says if you are not as powerful as your opponent then you should make it seem like you are bigger and stronger than them.

For crying out loud... what is "false and stupid" is claiming otherwise when the evidence speaks for itself...

The man ahs for best friends Communists, boasts about CNN international being an idea given to him by none ofther than fidel castro, who happens to be one of his close friends. The man marries a known Communist, Jane Fonda, not to mention that CNN is the most leftist kind of news media there is and some people like yourself want to claim he is not a Communist?...

So what? plenty of Communists are rich too...and they own their own businesses.


i guess this guy is not a Communist...


Fidel's Fortune
March 15, 2005; Page A20

"He didn't make it into the billionaire category, but Fidel Castro nonetheless earned an honorable mention on Forbes magazine's annual list of the World's Richest People out this month. And why not? With a net worth of $550 million, this is one bit of media recognition that El Jefe actually deserves.

According to Forbes, the Cuban leader committed to "socialism or death" has made a killing from a "web of state-owned businesses" -- all of which have no competition in the worker's paradise. Castros most profitable operations include a convention center, a retail conglomerate and a company called Medicuba that sells pharmaceuticals made on the island, reports the magazine. Not mentioned are Cuba's biggest exports -- seafood, tobacco, sugar and nickel -- which, as El Maximo Lider of the communist regime, Fidel naturally benefits from too.

Did you see where he used Bernanke's image while saying America is being made into a Fascist country? (at around 2min 15sec) And Geithner (4min)

I was an ex-pat for a while and was doomed to having to watch CNN-I for a long time. CNN-I is basically an Anti-American Marxist propaganda channel.

It makes the US CNN seem almost like a Heritage Foundation mouthpiece.

Got any?

Founder of CNN, Ted Turner is a Communist?

I've never witnessed ANY CNN newscaster spew fake tears on the air.


You did this in another thread too. Asking people to prove, what is blatantly obvious to anyone paying any attention at all. When you did it to me and I provided proof you claimed, "I just wanted to see if you would do it".


Wimbly,

If you can kindly cut and paste a copy of the words you claim I wrote as above
from any of my responses, I will refrain from any future postings here.

Otherwise, please retract your false accusation and kindly apologize. Truth is you cannot. I NEVER said that.

You have been challenged, now please provide proof. I NEVER said that. Find the quote.

Oh God can you imagine how much the stupidity factor would go up in this country? We really don't think about HER, per se. It's more the stupidity she says. It's those right wing people that listen to her and apparently get afraid Obama is going to kill my grandma.
