I have to admit, Glenn Beck is easy to listen to and he comes across as genuine. That is what sells his show. It is a kind of news/reality show/therapy type of thing. The scary part is there are people out there who believe what he says, verbatim.


Wow, you think Beck seems genuine? He doesn't seem like a cross between a used car salesman, a televangelist, and a carnival barker to you?

Honestly, I don't think there has been a "news" personality so disingenuous in the history of broadcasting. It is so blatantly a show, a performance, a propaganda piece.

People want to believe what he is saying because he supplies the ridiculous conspiracy theories which support the narrative of the far right and FOX News' agenda: progressives are the bogeyman out to destroy and enslave the world. Illuminati, Jews, Communists, Satanists, Shape Shifting Reptilians - you can put any villain you want in the driver's seat, and sometimes the accusation is born of sincere paranoia, but for Beck and Fox it is a cynically political move.

The true conspiracy is the one that Beck and Fox collude in every night and perpetrate on their viewership.

Those of you who hate Glenn Beck need to get a life. If you don't like him don't watch him, and don't call his followers names. This guy is a patriot.


Beck is about as much of a patriot as Joe McCarthy was a patriot. He constructs bogeymen for the sole purpose of furthering his career. I would love to know how exactly he is sticking his neck out. All he does is go after the people who are easily demonized by the far right worldview.

If Beck were truly a patriot, wouldn't he have some misgivings about working for a company whose majority shares are held by a Saudi billionaire? We know that it is wealthy Saudis who are the number one financial supporters of Islamic terrorists.

Why isn't Beck putting a picture of him on the blackboard and connecting the dots? I am not saying Beck is a terrorist, I am just asking questions, but why is he working for Osama Bin Laden's best friend?

Here we go again, dissing a great patriot like Joe McCarthy. It's amazing how the Soviet brainwashing still has a hold on the ignorant leftists, even to this day. McCarthy was a great man and, as the Venona papers eventually proved, 100% correct. But whatever, the Marxists have won and are now completing their plan of total destruction of Western civilization. When your cities are in flames you will only have yourself to blame.

Now that Glenn Beck is pointing out a few inconvenient truths, like the fact that millions of muslims want to see mass slaughter in the US and Israel, you are still hiding your heads in the sand. Maybe if you pull the covers over your head it will all go away, and everyone will hold hands, take a bong hit and put flowers in each others hair. Because after all, all those radical muslims are well intentioned. If we are nice to them, maybe by surrendering or flying the crescent moon over the white house, they will stop killing us with their bombs.

McCarthy was a raving lunatic. And no, I am not a liberal.



"The FBI agents who were actually chasing those spies have told me that McCarthy hurt their efforts because he trumped up charges, unfairly besmirched honorable Americans and gave hunting spies a bad name."

Kessler said the release of secret Cold War files under the Venona Project confirmed that there were Soviet spies in the U.S. government.

"The problem was that the people McCarthy tarnished as Communists or Communist sympathizers were not the real spies," Kessler wrote.

"The cause of anti-communism, which united millions of Americans and which gained the support of Democrats, Republicans and independents, was undermined by Sen. Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin," wrote William Bennett, who was the conservative secretary of education under President Ronald Reagan.

"McCarthy addressed a real problem: disloyal elements within the U.S. government. But his approach to this real problem was to cause untold grief to the country he claimed to love," Bennett wrote in his book "America: The Last Best Hope."

"Worst of all, McCarthy besmirched the honorable cause of anti-communism. He discredited legitimate efforts to counter Soviet subversion of American institutions."

So where are these millions of Muslims who want to kill us? If millions wanted us dead, we would be dead. Looking at your avatar, I see you are a Christian. Look at what our Lord said about judging people.

Reality is that out of roughly 1.450 Billion Muslims on the planet we are opposed by no more then 3 Million. That is the truth that can be taken to the bank and those who continually take what Beck says as the Gospel needs to get their heads examined. If we remain over there long range as some want that number will surely rise but if we remain steadfast and vigiliant to getting off of oil as a fuel source that number is guaranteed to drop. It all depends solely and exclusively on what we do stateside will be the determining factor in that.

The fact remains that if we continue this policy that continually allows for the destruction of The Middle East that number will surely spike but offer someone a job, an education for their kids, a place for their kids to go after school and watch how quickly that number gets erased.

Continually bomb them they will want to bomb us, work with them and watch every single person whose allegiance is sworn to questionable and shady entities effectively turn against them.

He also mentioned $2bil travel budgets for Obama, lol. I really can't believe anyone would take this clown seriously, he's NOT news, he's an entertainer that doesn't base his OPINION on facts.

His show should be on Comedy Central imo!

Your source is a psychotic leftist rag and you claim to not be a liberal? The "truth to power" folks couldn't tell the truth if it slapped them in the face. These are the moral geniuses who praised the efforts of a stone cold, hate America, islamic terrorist.

newsbusters.org...

Sorry McCarthy's name will be rehabilitated one day, when all the liberals have been put to shame and their poisonous philosophies discredited.
www.gnosticliberationfront.com...

As for Beck, his statistics are widely reported and well understood by those who care.
This analysis should wake anyone up who clings to the self destructive notion that Islam is the religion of peace.

Dude, if you don't trust his source, you can double check for yourself...the clip is available to the public


You saying his "statistics" are understood by those who care is laughable. If his stats are wrong like in this case, and his followers still eat it up...well...that only shows one thing:

THEY ARE BLIND BRAINWASHED SHEEP!!

I mean, you're accepting things as fact that are clearly wrong...just because it fits your warped world view. Sad really, and makes you look pretty stupid too imo.

I checked it and it's basically the opinion of one person with an axe to grind. The whole article is just a hit piece, blindly trashing 'conservatives', and assuming they have the some monolothic viewpoint, as the leftists do. For example they say conservatives are now calling Theodore Roosevelt a liberal. Far from it. Teddy Roosevelt is still the best example of a patriot and a true conservative that I know of.

As the article I provided shows, Becks numbers, are if anything an understatement of the true support that Islamo-fascism has within the Muslim world. Rather than just continually deny it, embrace the fact that all that is good and right with Western civilization is utterly hated by the majority of the world. These people hate democracy, and hate freedom. You will not win them over by offering them your current pillars of civilization either, sodomy, drugs, beer and rap music.

I think your interpretation of his remarks were generous.

After listening to his remarks in those couple of minutes without the aid of laundry equipment in the background, I find your use of the word "rambling" astute. I won't even go into ACLU/Socialists working inside of your church or Communists taking over the Democratic Party except to point out how many times he hits the fear button for those unwilling to apply common sense.

I agree there is a difference between active crazies and passive supporters. I got it. I am not sure if Glenn does though. He talks about US citizens talking of open/violent revolution in this country and how only 19 people caused 9-11. I guess he was getting at how the MSM (which he happens to be a part of ) is missing the boat when it comes to power of crazy.

There was no subliminal laughter in the background at this point. There was no sense of light hearted banter at this point. I am not friends with Glenn so I cannot say if he said it like he meant it or not. My original post was a jab at the ability of charismatic speakers to avoid fact and generate emotion in the masses. When put under even the least amount of scrutiny, the narrative falls apart. He is not alone in this. He has plenty of good company in the MSM and the politicos.

If you consider obfuscation and deception of the public at large for malevolent purpose a non-issue, by all means consider it a non-issue. It is regretful if you see it as a personal issue. I do not.

I found it high too.

I found it referenced in a number of USDA locations on the web. What surprised me was the measurement was not made in calories.

Obviously, a starving person will eat less than some couch potato.

If you can find where it is well established, more power to you.

I find it hard to believe if there were that many people hell bent on destroying something, what is taking them so long? Perhaps it is in the definition of "support".

I make no claim to espouse any one viewpoint or political stance. I am always leery of those who do.

Glenn Beck is INSANE! How is he still out and free to roam around and speak? If anyone else said the things he has they would be labeled a terrorist or a threat yet he has a show?!

He should be in a mental institution. His views are completely nuts!

Seems rather high to me.. I wouldn't expect the average soldier to get that much food unless they are at an actual base resting..personally If I'm in the middle of a war, and getting shot at.. No way am I eating four pounds of food.

You'll be much more likely to survive a bullet to the stomach if your belly is empty.

You only think Beck's number is correct because your "backup source" is "www.prophetofdoom.net"


I strongly suggest you stop getting your information from blogs and opinion shows like Beck's show

Saying their are 150 million Muslim terrorists is equivalent to saying there are 50 million American terrorists against Islam. Using my Glenn Beck like reasoning that means 20% of Americans are Christian terrorists, I guess we must be twice as radical. There are surely that many people in America that hate Muslims and would like to turn the middle east into 'glass' right? But how many are on their own dime hopping on a plane to go actually kill some Muslims, oh that would be almost none, just about the same as the amount of Islamoterrorists who have shown up in the US.

Disliking someone, even believing you want them dead, thinking you might even kill them if you could get away with it, does not make you a terrorist. Only action makes someone a terrorist and there is very, very little Muslim terrorist action against the United States or it's citizens no matter how much the media hypes it.

The hilarious part is, the official number of terrorists killed since 2003 is between 20k and 25k. So by stating there's 150million terrorists, you're essentially claiming the "coalition of the willing" only managed to kill 0.01% of all terrorists. All the millions of other terrorists are somehow miraculously evading capturing


You can call Glenn a patriot all you want, fact is, he's in it for the money, and he continues to spew falsehoods. I wouldn't wanna equal "patriotism" with "greed", "stupidity", and "blatant lies".

I think what you will find he actually said was that 10 % of muslims are supporters of terrorism.

Given that jahad is an obligation upon all muslims - ie the conquering and subdueing of all infidel lands for islam.

and that jihad comes in two varieties fast and slow. I would say that figure is probably as good as any for the 'fast' jihad. The other 90% subscribe to the 'slow' jihad or 'boil the stupid infidel frog slowly' approach and don't particularly want to see the infidels woken up and alerted to the danger by gratuitous attacks - however pleasing they may be to witness!
