Ok what I mean is that although what he said would be percived by some people as inconsiderate he has a point. Its not like hes bashing everyone, hes pointing out what he dosent like and says atleast 3 times thats its only like 10 of those people.


If that is what you are honestly buying into that he literally meant that he was only referring to "like 10" of the victims families then by all means go on supporting Glenn Beck. I don't deal in lost causes.

It was directed toward the OP.

You assume the post was about you.

But now this thread is going off topic.

On topic.

OP if you are new to the game I suggest doing your own searches and research. Anyone eager to point you in a direction is doing so using their own political ideaology.

If you like most of what GB has to say then watch his show and read his book, you don't need anyones approval. Sure you might catch some flak, but who cares.

I've seen some youtube clips of him saying things I like. I've also seen some clips of him sniffling and bursting into tears on TV, which I found highly unprofessional if not a sign of downright mental instability. Makes me wonder if he's "on something." Beyond that, I don't watch enough TV to say for sure.

I like him he tells it like it is no lies from him about the goverment,
he hass all kinds of guest that are all congress and any other guess that are against the the goverment.

He takes a lot of heat from D.C. but he keeps pushing, and now he is trying to fund 56 new founders to start a new honest goverment had 5 yesterday he has been looking for the honest people to call him for about 2 weeks now.

Orielly Factor is the like him to but not as hard on them as Beck.

Try Racheal Maddow she straight up tears Beck up and FOX she is all Left wing.

Whenever I happen to see FOX News (whether Glenn Beck is on, or Bill O'Reilly, or anyone else - they're all the same), this is what happens:

- For five minutes I laugh.
- For Ten minutes I get mad.
- For the rest of the day I get sad, and I find myself confused.

I spend the rest of the day wondering, How can people fall for what is clearly a Song-and-Dance. Glenn Beck, especially, is playing a character. The conservative, patriot, "I speaks from my heart", puppet-head.

. . . and then I wonder, how can those people that understand he is "playing it up", and that he is not a "reporter", sit there, listen to his rambling and raving and then defend him as a "truth-speaker" and the "voice of a movement" - what movement? the "Take my country back" movement?

Where were these FOX news personalities when we were suffering through 8 years of George Dubya'. After 9/11, and after it became clear that we were led into war under false pretenses, where was this anger and outrage then?

These TeaParties that he so proudly supports and organizes, are pathetic. They have no purpose. They only serve to prove that a large part of the American population is afraid, and easily manipulated. Go ahead, call Obama a Fascist and a Socialist within the same breath, you're ignorant and you've lost the ability to think.

Letspreadtruth, I'm not attacking you. I'm just speaking my mind, just putting my opinion out there.

But actually . . . . There is one thing I like about Glenn Beck.
He's made it okay to say "TeaBagger" on TV.

I used to really like Glenn Beck - however, I now strongly feel that he is a fraud - especially after basically hijacking the tea parties and claiming them to be political in nature.

He is an example of trying to create a lunatic fringe - he can and will act crazy - and this will reflect poorly on the issues he might raise. In this regard he is paralelled by Alex Jones.

Madmen foaming at the mouth are not great ambassadors for serious issues - I think it is certainly an agenda driven approach.

An example of this kind of method is 911 truthers who say outrageous things such as; the WTC was destroyed by beam weapons, or there were no planes - such people are disinfo agents. Such arguments and statements destroy the credibility of the real arguments - and GB and AJ both undermine the credibility of those who have serious questions.

I watch GLenn Beck sometimes - and listen to Alex Jones.

I consider both to be deflection and dis info at its finest.

Maybe he dosent, maybe he really hates the 9/11 victims families and the katrina vicitms wheter i agree with that or not is not enough for me to say i dont like him. He has a point when he says how come we only see NO and not anywhere else. Hey, maybe him saying this stuff is as ignorant as you saying i dont deal in lost causes and trying to start trouble with other posters.

Thankyou for the video, I think that all the "antics" are to get his ratings up and keep everyone intereted in what he's saying. People can take it as unprofessional and I could see why but look alittle deeper into his message and maybe you can see what I mean and why i like him.

I agree he speaks and is in search of the truth just like most of us are. The powers that be need to be held accountable for whats going on with this country. That is not a conspiracy theory or anything like that its the truth. Btw thanks for telling me about them Im going to look into it for sure.

IMO from someone from outside the U.S beck looks like a complete nutjob, he wouldn't be taken seriously here in the U.K, In fact he is portrayed as a complete nutter, someone only to be viewed in comic terms. He's working for Fox ffs.
Fox news leans further to the right than a man who's had his right leg blown off

Good point, but we cannot fix the past, we can only learn from it and from what ive seen Glenn Beck is one of the people that speaks truth and demands answers. Whether he acts alittle off or is unconventional is one thing but demanding answers and speaking truth is another and thats what sets him apart in my mind.


Go ahead, call Obama a Fascist and a Socialist within the same breath, you're ignorant and you've lost the ability to think.

As for Obama I think he has done some things for this country, he got almost everyone interested in politics again, he is an amazing speaker and he has inherited a huge mess and you cannot expect to see results overnight. Although I also don’t agree with wasting time on things like the Olympics (which few if any people care about). I don’t like him putting so much emphasis on healthcare (I think we have bigger things to worry about at the moment) and I don’t like him giving more and more money to banks and big business. I cannot judge a man by what he has done in not even a year in office after inheriting the biggest mess possible.

In the UK the lft and righ has also become blurred, like the US the 2 main parties have moved to the center.

The right in this country normally put's the individual ahead of society, the left puts society ahead of the individual.

I appreciate your response, And you seem like an intelligent person.

Yes, the past is the past, but I think a persons track record (especially when it's their conduct and statements of the last 8 years) should be considered when they place themselves on a podium, and attempt to start (or just fuel the flames of) a "movement". These FOX personalities called war protesters and critics of the Dubya' administration "Un-patriotic"and "Un-American". please consider this.

And Second, Healthcare is not unimportant. It is a human-rights issue. This year, I had to go to a free dental clinic (because I can not afford regular dental care/dental coverage). At this clinic, there was a group so large that it filled a Parking plaza (hundreds of people). People with jobs. Hard-working taxpayers that were in pain, but could not afford care. There were only 5 volunteer Dentists and 2 volunteer Oral Surgeons. I got to see a dentist, but over half the people that showed up, had to be turned away (after a 10 hour clinic. A 10 hour wait for some). Sadly, this is happening at free clinics all over this country. It's wrong that so many people are suffering in the "greatest country in the world".

Please take some time, and think about this.
