You know what they say about opinions right?

Apparently I have one too!

If you fail to see it, then nothing I have said or say will convince you.

Actions speak louder than words.


I am open to listening to your opinion buddy. I just want to know why you think he is racist. Can you explain to me why you think he is racist? Do you have any links or videos to point to?

I am not trying to argue with you, just would like to hear your reasoning. Thanks.

I tried to make this point in another thread and was basically lambasted for it. People for the most part are acting like they love the divide. It is so disheartening.

Can you just have an open mind and watch the videos? Again, like many other Beck bashers, your comments who you did not watch the videos.

Glenn Beck is a good and decent man who is just trying to bring together Americans of all races so that we can join together and stand up for our rights before the Liberals in this country manage to destroy this great land.

Star and flag! I watched all four segments, and this goes to show that conservatism is alive and well in America, regardless of race. I don't understand why people feel they have to throw slur after slur at Beck. He is a self made man, one who, without the benefit of a college degree, and some professor indocrinating him, what is going on with this country.

Until Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson (who was one of the biggest racists to ever live in the White House), people in this country stood on their own two feet, ask little from the government, and made their own way. Now, we expect the government to pay our utilities, our car payment, and put gas in our tanks. What ever happened to good old American individualism?

They slur, slander Beck and those like him for simple reasons. They have no defence.
They cannot answer simple questions.
They do not want to have the conversation.
They think that turning back the clock in regards to Federal power, that we have to live in the same age.
They have been brain washed and have no imagination or concept of what it would be like to have the Freedom that we were provided, and will not fight for.

Looks like the conservatives out there are after what they call the black mans vote for the next election.Just stumbled on on another link here to a dodgy recording by Lloyd Marcus thats pushing the same agenda.

I think they will push religion into the voting equation and hoping that with enough airtime they can get a lot of the church going african americans to become conservative

To them only conservatives are patriots who love thier country,liberals are the godless mass with no morality and worse that than socialists!

Glen Becks a phoney,I can see through his act on other vids with his fake tears and pathetic attempts to organise mass demonstrations against the liberal goverment

He is an entertainer,and I can see why people could enjoy watching his show.Expect this voting population to be targeted for the next election

Buddy watch the videos. You obviously don't like Back which is 100% fine. But saying that these African Americans are only saying what they do in the videos because Republicans tricked them, is actually racist. Watch the videos. If you actually followed beck you would know he isn't a Republican and actually doesn't support the Republican party at all. He's against the GOP and Democrats. But you wouldn't know that since you made up your mind and wouldn't watch any videos.

Dude they slammed McCain and Obama equally as socialism and socialism lite, thats funny as hell.

These people obviously read a lot.

I am very happy to see that average people are doing their homework and educating themselves because the system lied to all of us.

Things are looking good today.

There were some very important messages on this show, like

1) Democrat/Republican are both a sham and oppressive big spenders.
2) Personal liberty is the biggest issue.
3) Beck even suggested to either "dismantle Both Parties or somehow re-set them."

This is not your average TV programming. There is truth being spoken here.

Positive videos, thanks for sharing.

I'm not a conservative nor am I a liberal. I Share some views with the left and some with the right, and on many I disagree with both. I hate the MSM. I have never bothered to watch Beck, and took it for granted that he was the kook everyone said he was. The vicks indecent was enough to prove those views right. After watching all 4 of these videos I have a bit of respect for the guy. Does that mean I am fangirl now? By all means no. I am how ever going to pay more attention to the guy and think for myself instead of falling into the anti-Glen beck club, just because every one else is. From what I saw there in those videos alone, I currently have no reason to think he is racist , nor did he seem like the republicans lap dog, as I always assumed. He sure didn't seem to fond of Mc Cain.
Thank you OP I have a lot to think about.

The Vicks incident made me laugh.

Mainly because it was for a comical photoshoot. Would you be able to cry and make that face at the same time? Probably not.


I watched this special and I was a bit on the edge about it, and I enjoy watching Beck. Something seemed odd about it, maybe that's because I just wasn't expecting it and was half drunk while watching it? I thought it was good stuff, don't get me wrong, but it almost seemed...fake.

S&F for you Johnny.....I really enjoy Beck. He has some great moments and then again some low points. But after all, don't we all. The funniest thing about the divide in America, they spend all their time & energy arguing about nothing, non-issues. The issue at hand is our freedom, liberty and our pursuit of happiness. We need to, like Beck said in the video, dismantle the system and start over.....it just doesn't work. We have tried, but our government has failed us.
The people need to stand united and replace the corrupt men in government with men like Ron Paul. Don't they get it, it is so simple...they even state it all throughout history, "United we Stand, Divided we Fall". So people, get the message yet....TPTB have divided us for only one reason, to FALL! I wish we all could get passed the conditioning of our youth and Stand UNITED, grow up America!

Peace

Prove that he is a racist. There are plenty of his shows on youtube. Find a collection of Beck's racism and put them on ATS. Show us a pattern.

Innocent until proven guilty. Sound familiar?

anxiously awaiting the proof,
Tinman

I'm still waiting for Beck to define what "white culture" is. He did say Obama has a "deep-seated hatred" for it, after all (and "white people", of course). That's a term usually found in white supremacist materials.

His conspiracy mongering about things that haven't even taken place to me shows Beck hates Obama for more than just being a liberal.

Anyone who truly believes that "The Liberals" are to blame for destroying America must seriously have been asleep or in a coma for the past 10 years.

As for Beck I consider him a populist, who is wittingly or unwittingly being used by the agenda that is running Fox news.

I'm not saying that MSNBC or CNN is necessarily any better, they are merely on the other side of the fence. In the public eye at least...

there is a continual misuse of terms
to be racist one has to have power over
a group and deny them access that another
group freely accesses

prejudice is what most are talking about
and we all pre judge good and bad...

and it is a prejudice to assume someone is
'racist' because they are white

Erm... No.

To be racist is to judge someone on the basis of their race/ethnicity. The term in itself has nothing to do with who's in power.

And is anyone really assuming that people are racist because they are white?
This is really not something I have observed to any significant degree.

Funny thing is, I find that it's pretty rare for "liberals" to label those who are "anti-Obama" racist.
However it seems pretty common for those who are "anti-Obama" to complain that they are being labelled racist by "liberals"

It's like a reverse racist card, and it's quite silly really

Hah! This is a joke right? You really can't see that Fox forced Beck to do this special to prove he's not a racist and that his employer does not support racism? If you'll recall, Rupert Murdoch was recently interviewed on TV and stated that Glen Beck was right about calling Obama a racist. Then, after the interview was aired, Murdoch came out immediately and did a complete 180 on what he said. Now, you're saying the timing of this "special episode" is a coincidence? The fact that Glenn has lost so many advertisers recently due to a protest campaign by "Color of Change" due to his racist remarks is also a coincidence? You people crack me up.

Fox produced this special for the sole purpose of disproving what was already abundantly clear. Frankly, I think it's hilarious that so many people have trouble recognizing something so obvious and shameless. If you want proof that Fox News tailors itself to a lower order of intelligence, this episode proves it. Congratulations neocons! Fox News knows you're an easy sell. Months of atrocious race-baiting remarks can be sugarcoated with a special pro-minority special. LOL! I'm not really surprised - this is the same group of people who quickly forgave Cheney for shooting a man in the face because he apologized and sent flowers to guy's hospital room.

I would like to thank the OP for this post. As a black man who is a truth-seeker and against Obama, seeing those videos made me happy. Anytime I tell another black person my thoughts on Obama, its like a hate crime all of a sudden. Most blacks really do believe in Barack and its sad how TPTB have them brainwashed like that. Its very discouraging, I can only hope that a change sweeps over the communities and everyone realizes that Obama and the whole system that is AMERICA is not what it seems.
