Such things like the earth being 5 billion years old when it's only 5000 (woops, they accidently added a few 2 many zeros didn't they!).

Glenn for president!


Wait, there's a typo, it wasn't MLK, it was the Big BO.

I have yet to see a thread for this so i thought i might start one, it is for those who support Glenn Beck and the various "movements" he has started...


I love Glenn Beck for the way he carries a tube of Ben-Gay in his pocket, allowing him to spontaneously break out in tears right after a commercial break. How's that for a "movement"?

A little dab under each pig-eye, and the ratings soar. It makes him look like he really gives a $h!+.

When it all hits the fan though I will avoid those who actually think like him.


To each their own is right and get use to it. The last place I want to be is with people like you that think like you do. If and when SHTF, its gonna be me and like-minded Americans on the other side of the line from you, and I believe there are more of us than you and yours.

If a confrontation ever occurs, I suggest you leave your "I Love Obama" or your "Glenn Becks a Crybaby" T-shirts at home. Those comments will make good "Bullseyes". If I can see it, I can hit it!!

The sad thing is, if we all don't wake up and realize we are all Americans FIRST, and the assorted subdivisions come second, a confrontation lies ahead by plan. The Americans must join together as one united group to displace those that desire to pit one group of American against the other for "their" political gain. But again I have my doubts as there lies a propensity to stay engaged in the "divide and conquer" politics that have allowed TPTB to place us in the situation we now find ourselves in.

Will we ever wake up and change?


Not really sure what you are going about but you have apparently made some huge assumptions about me. I in no way bashed Glen Beck. I just don't agree with the man. I never said I disagreed with his motivation. I am in no way aligned with Obama. That's for damn sure. I have no use for the whole lot as a whole.

I actually think on my own and remain neutral to it all. I keep on the outside looking in. NO worries though, Your sentiments towards me won't antagonize me. I have a resounding sense of well being when it comes to how I stand on things. I wish that for everyone regardless of where they stand on issues in this country today.

Hello tspark.

I didn't watch the rally, but I am a Glen Beck supporter. And it will never cease to amaze me how everybody who slams the man cannot even cite one, not one specific example of why they disagree with what Glen has said.

They offer no counter argument other than labeling, slander, or name calling. You will see it every time because Glen presents facts, figures and sources. They can not refute these facts and many are to ignorant to even understand them. Hence the name calling.

Many who oppose him are Progressives and liberals who are to ignorant to realize that their party has been hijacked. Just take their venom with a grain of salt, laugh it off, and hit em back with the truth......It'll make em crazy....lol.

While a bit harsh you are at least honest in your point. That's my sentiments exactly regarding division anyways. I am not on any side here. I am for Americans regardless of the lines and divisions and labels that separate us. Somehow It was assumed I am a Obama supporter because I don't care for Glen Beck and I don't see how. The whole of them scare the hell out of me but Glen and those he represents just doing what they feel is best for them and I say more power to them. I have been against Obama since day one but he is the commander-in-chief and even though I disagree with him as well he is doing what ever it is he and his administration things is best. May not be the best for me or many Americans but why should I have to align myself with any particular group, category or party. Too many damn labels. I am American first for fact and I align myself with my fellow Americans in what must be done and we should all put the petty stuff aside and make our government what it should be as a whole.

I have no time to bash anyone for there political views. Even if it's change I don't agree with I can at least acknowledge that they are doing something about it and I just want to do the same with my fellow Americans. We are too greatly divided and that's where we are weakened and compromise goes out the window.

Why prove Glenn Beck wrong when he proves himself wrong?
"America already has the best health care in the world. We do take care of our sick." --Glenn Beck, June 4, 2008
"What does it mean for the country if we lose are position as the innovator, as having the best health care in the world?" --Glenn Beck, April 29, 2009...But:
"We seem to be a society or a system of health care in this country that is just trying to shove the patient through that door as fast as possible." --Glenn Beck, January 7, 2008
"Let me tell you about my personal voyage through the nightmare that is the American health care system." --Glenn Beck, January 7, 2008
"Getting well in this country can actually almost kill you." --Glenn Beck, January 7, 2008.

All of those quotes appear to have been taken way out of context as usual. If you would have watched the entire shows when he made those statements, you would have see a very different picture emerge.

Glen was talking about reform, not a government takeover of the health care system. He acknowledged that even though we had a good health care system, there was always room for improvement, (and cited his own personal experience), but not the budget busting Obama health care solution.........

The only person capable of telling the truth on the news is Glenn Beck. The rest of you a mindless zombies who only pay attention to the dear leader, and would never consider listening to alternative choices -- like Glenn Beck.


Your choice of the phrase, "mindless zombie," strikes me as ironic.

Interesting that you have programmed your mind to presume people who don't like Glenn Beck are loyal supporters of Obama who listen to nothing else anyone says.

Doesn't that narrow-minded mentality remind you of someone you know?

Don't you see your actions mimic exactly the kind of behavior you are accusing others of having? This being the case, maybe you should re-examine your opinion of Beck to see if it's really based on truth, or whether what we're dealing with here is some person flapping his gums because he's bull-headed and refuses to see things he doesn't want to see.

I find it humorous that you have posted on EVERY SINGLE GLENN BECK TOPIC..........and you just keep copy and pasting the same response....


responses, plural. and i do not cut and paste, i actually type my responses out. And even if i do have my own "catch phrases" and "key points", i'm only following Glenn Beck's example of using them. he uses catch phrases. he repeats the same key points over and over again. you are criticizing me for doing the same thing he does???

"...ramming it down our throats..."
- fox news



Apparently thats all you have.......once again.......your agenda is as plain as day.......


what is my agenda?



If you watched or listened to Beck at all, youd know that his wife made him wear that vest out of fear for him......


i have watched his show nearly every day for over 2 years. if you have read my posts, you would know this already. your reading and comprehension skill must be lacking. and regardless of who made him wear it, it was worn because of FEAR. period.



If Beck was REALLY frightened , he wouldnt have spoken at all.....


really? he isn't scared? he doesn't say what he is scared of nearly every show????

do you even watch Glenn Beck?

"I'm scared America ..."
- Glenn Beck



I watch all this vitriol that goes on with Beck , and how he inspires such hate and rhetoric from the left, and from so many people on this site......

And then i turn around and watch these SAME people call conservatives bigots, racists, intolerant and ignorant......


the above does not apply to me. if i call conservatives bigots, racists, intolerant and ignorant, please find one of those many "cut and pasted" responses in one of these Glenn Beck threads, and quote me where i said it.

Glenn Beck didn't know MLK gave that speech on August 28th?


You attack Glenn and say he was a disgrace to MLK while he and all those people out there HONORED him and his words, and there was not ONE incident of racism......

Glenn Beck didn't know MLK gave that speech on August 28th?
again, find me one of those cut and pasted responses where i say this.
where do i say Glenn was a disgrace to MLK?
Glenn Beck didn't know MLK gave that speech on August 28th?
find it. quote it:

here are the most recent threads i have posted in about glenn beck:
Glenn Beck is my savior.

Glenn Beck a part of a Nazi hegalian dialectic?

John Stewart Shows how Stupid FOX are.......Again

Add for "take down tape" for Beck, act of desperation?

Fox News really is unbelievable.

Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" D.C. Event. Aug 28th, 2010. Many Videos.

Ron Paul calls out the liars... I meant Palin and Beck

I am a supporter.

1. I think he's hilarious; especially his use of satire. I've never seen so many people get riled up over things he says-- the responses from some of his opposition is enough to market as a genuine comedic CD, 2. He's one of the few commentators that actively discuss political philosophy from a Constitutional point-of-view. I don't know of any other commentators on live television that openly discuss the Constitution-- most of them are interested in discussing political philosophies pertaining to political parties, and politicism, not Constitutional merit, and 3. He's a source of national skepticism toward big government.

As to his authenticity, that's for each individual to decide. As for me, I can comfortably sit and listen, reasoning the information on whether it's true or not without slurping it up mindlessly. Some of the theories he comes up with may appear sketchy but that's not the point; the point is to assert skepticism toward public officials and big government. Research it and come to your own conclusions. He's fulfilling a much needed role where journalism and the associated press currently [and have] fail.

There are only two view-points I oppose Mr. Beck on: 1. his approach towards the Mosque in NYC, and 2. his advocation for a large military.

1. His approach towards the Mosque in NYC: although he stated a Constitutional right to build it, he did dedicate a curious amount of time toward trying to discourage people concerning it's being built. Was he asserting skepticism toward questioning the funds and motivation for building it? Perhaps. I suppose, in the end, the opinion of Glenn Beck's take on the Mosque is largely irrelevant as he's a fellow citizen with an opinion, but ultimately, Constitutionalism wins out-- one of the reasons why I enjoy listening to him.

2. His advocation for a large military; he has slowly begun changing his stance. Recently, however, during one of his radiocasts, he didn't sound too agreeable toward a libertarianist view on military, but then again, in multiple instances, he has voiced his opposition to stationing troops around the world and the current wars going on. Slowly, he is shifting to non-interventionism, which is a good thing.

As for his detractors, I've debated my share of them, and unfortunately, some of them tend to have hidden collectivist aspirations. For example, I've seen the recent opinion of Christopher Hitchens (about his rally), Lewis Black's swastika comment, and more consistently, Jon Stewart's critiques-- the irony? All three are self-proclaimed Marxist, Socialist and Socialist (respectively) supporters. Another common criticism is he can be emotional at times; personally, I don't find this a genuine criticism at all. People are going to be emotional toward things they feel strong about, and that includes those who oppose Mr. Beck's world-views-- one need just type in "Glenn Beck" into Google's search box and wait for the search suggestion drop-down menu to appear, it's usually "Glenn Beck is _____ (insert derogatory, emotional discharged name calling)". Being emotional, within reason, is one of the joys of being human.

You are really testing my sarcasm detector.


Agreed.

Those posts remind me of videos online where Republican Christians spew forth, "I dun't care 'bout all that stuff, as long as he buleeves in my Gaawd, then that's all I care about and I'm votin' fer him!!!"

And people think religion doesn't control the sheeple.

Beck is quickly becoming a political tool in a very dangerous game. What amazes me is the fact that the guy is clearly mentally unstable and people are still buying into his rhetoric. He is allowed to get away with saying the most bizarre things by framing his comments in questions. This is a guy who has gone on record to say Obama is racist. With this in mind, do supporters of Beck think Obama is racist?

ATS = "All The Same"

Left-liberal "new" media. Expect to be crowded off the board by people scrutinizing your viewpoint, or even mentioning an alternative to the official version. You'll get even less mileage from a thread that directly critiques the doctrines of the dear leader-in-chief.

The site is open speech, but the members toe the party line.

Hah, preposterous!

May I say that there is definitely more supporters for the Tea Party and for goons like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin then there is against them.

Those that oppose these people and groups are in the minority.

What is the dangerous game that you are referring to? Please tell.

If Glen was mentally unstable, I seriously doubt that he would even be able to function in public let alone continue to exist in the spotlight for so long. And who would employ such a person who was unstable? CNN? Fox News? I doubt it.

Let me frame this bizarre comment in the form of a question........ Are you a racist?

There isn't an adult on this planet who doesn't possess at least a tinge of racism. Whoever tries to deny this is either a liar, a coward, or else is in complete denial. Unless you've been living in a bubble for your entire life, and have never had contact with anybody outside of your own race, you've been tainted. We've come a long way in a very short time as a species. It's the last dash to the finish line that's going to be the hardest part of the marathon to run.......sort of like the last 10 pounds one needs to lose on a diet.

And why should the president be any different from the rest of us? He no doubt has experienced his share of racial bigotry before he became a blip on the radar, just like everybody else has. The question is: Is he still bitter from those previous experiences, and if so, are some of his decisions based on race?

I personally believe that he is above this sort of thing. But when I hear Eric Holder say things like "Americans are cowards for not wanting to discuss race," and when he will not pursue the clear case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, it sort of makes me wonder why the President does not openly chide him for his remarks and his refusal to take action.

Perhaps this is why Glen is questioning his motives.

My perspective is quite simple and I base my Beck judgment on his spurious claims and general demeanor. Yes, you could argue that we are all a little bit racist, but that is a discussion for another time. However, when you hear Beck scream down the phone to people, use provocative commentary that assumes the Nazis have come to town and the one thing that really disgusted me was his attitude towards the families of 9/11.

Pretending to cry on tv and then at the rally makes you question his sincerity and assuming that the date for the rally was just mere coincidence really takes the biscuit. I just think the guy is a freak of tv nature and there are plenty like him.

Beck backed off from that recently and said that he was wrong to say it. However .. he was totally correct when he DID say it.

Obama's Church Not Your Average Christian Church

Have you actually listened to Obama?
His 'typical white grandmother' comments? etc etc
His 'that's how white folks will do you ..." etc etc
(lumping all people of color together etc etc )
His pathetic ... "I sat in the pews but wasn't there that week"??
(sounds like Clinton - I didn't inhale
)
Did you read his book?

Obama sat in the pews of the Black Liberation Theology cult for 20 years. No one except a racist could stomach sitting there for an hour let alone 20 years.

If a church has these as it's mission ... do you think they are racist?

1. Commitment to God
2. Commitment to the White Community
3. Commitment to the White Family
4. Dedication to the Pursuit of Education
5. Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence
6. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
7. Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect
8. Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness"
9. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community
10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
11. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
12. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System

Well ... just replace the 'white' with 'black' and you have the mission of the cult that Obama was an active member of for 20 years. Racism is racism.
