For crying out loud, someone please offer him a job on Comedy Central where he belongs...he could make an awesome show together with Colbert, it would be epic. He's always been crazy, but he's really losing it as of late, just randomly throwing around "communists, marxists, Hitler, Weimar republic" whenever he feels like it when discussing stuff that has nothing to do with it. It's almost as if he's living during the Cold War in his mind, while the rest of us are trying to cope with the 21st century...someone snap him out of it!

You know you've officially gone crazy if even O'Reilly disagrees with your lunatic Marxist-Communist theories




Communists??? WTF are you talking about, in which century do you live???

It would be even funnier if everyone would realize it's comedy, and NOT based on reality...it's like Disneyland's "A small world".

Glenn Beck's legitimacy in my eyes has always been bi-polar. One day I'll have thought a show of his was stimulating, well researched and accurate, presenting actual useful information that is rarely talked about. The next day, he forgets to take his meds and goes off the deep end, yelling about communism (an ideology that is dead, will never and can never come into fruition due to the illogical concept that the state, a being if you will, voluntarily kills itself) and comparing everything Obama is doing to the Weimar republic.

Really, Beck is just an attempt to cater to the fringe right/libertarians that to a degree realize something is very wrong with this country, but have been corralled towards the wrong origins and conclusions of this problem.

It's all divide and conquer. Don't just divide and conquer the populace, divide and conquer ideas and beliefs. Cut an idea up, give some to one side to inflate and control, give some to another side to inflate and control, and toss the rest away.

Commodities prices across all indexes are up 20% in 6 months.

That is a 40% annual inflation rate.

The riots are because food costs are spiraling out of control in those countries due to our Federal Reserve flooding the markets with 600 billion in funny money.

The following will occur within the year:

- US food and energy costs will consume nearly the entire US households average budget.
- Riots in the 3rd world will increase in severity and will become a global phenomena, to include Latin America.
- The US will become politically destabilized as marxist college students and inner city youth riot over tuition increases, program defunding, and out of control costs of living.
- People on government food stamp programs will not be able to afford to eat 3 full meals a day, as food subsidies will not cover the cost of food
- Most likely we will see price controls, which will lead to massive shortages and even more starvation and ever more riots

Ultimately the end result will be a total implosion of the US dollar, and the world will regress back to the stone ages where people bartered tobacco leaves and beaver pelts as money.

You will not be laughing a year from now.

In fact, I doubt you'll be laughing 6 months from now.

No one's saying we're not in a crisis...it's just that Beck's explanation match those of a monkey on '___'.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I'll still be laughing in 6mo (especially if Beck's show continues), I got a great job, make good money, and have a loving family/friends. Unless I get hit by a bus, I should be fine

I'm sure the Equestrians that lived through the fall of Rome were laughing like you and mocking the few people who saw it coming, right up until the whole thing blew up under their feet.

Keep on laughing buddy.

When your fat paycheck doesn't buy you a bag of groceries, you'll be changing your tune.

I don't really need to refute much more.

With commodities experiencing a 40% annual inflation rate right now, the markets will do the speaking for me.

John Stewart is a funny guy, but that doesn't make his analysis valid.

At least Beck is taking his economic cues from Hazlitt, which is a far cry from Stewart, who is spewing the same garbage Krugman and the Fed are saying.

While Beck may not be completely accurate with his geo-political descriptions of what is going to occur, he is much much closer to reality than the la la land dreamers of the Federal Reserve and the Daily Show.

Well, official data contradicts your claims




In 2004, the National Annenberg Election Survey found that Fox News viewers were the most confused about current events, while viewers of "The Daily Show" were among the best informed news consumers in the country. Comedy Central, relying on data from Nielsen Media Research, also found that Stewart's audience not only knew more about current events, but were far better educated than Bill O'Reilly's audience.

Three years later, the Pew Research Study published a report showing that "viewers of the Daily Show and the Colbert Report have the highest knowledge of national and international affairs, while Fox News viewers rank nearly dead last."


Source 1
Source 2
Source 3

But who cares about facts, right?


Having said that, comparing a COMEDY SHOW to a program on a news channel is beyond laughable anyway


It's like saying "this steak tastes way better than the car over there"...they're different things.

Like I said, no one's arguing that we're in a financial crisis...but Beck's explanations are COMPLETE HOGWASH! FYI, communists/marxists/Soros has nothing to do with the current crisis, far from it

Beck is blaming the government for the problem, specifically the federal reserve.

Beck is right in that respect, and his analysis of the geo-political instability the criminal counterfeiting will provoke is also fairly accurate in terms of its consequences.

I don't agree with Beck on everything, far from it, but bashing Beck while lauding John Stewart is ridiculous given the facts in question.

The dollar's going to collapse, that's for sure. But it's not going to be because of communists, Marxists, Hitlers, or Weimar republics. It's going to be because of us. You. Me. All of us. We didn't do enough to stop the thieves and criminals who control our government.

I would argue it is because of communists, more specifically Italian Fascists.

Those who believe that government can plan the economy are responsible for the downfall of the dollar.

Just because a democrat calls themselves a democrat does not mean their actions do not make them a fascist.

Democrats took over General Motors

Democrats implemented centrally planned interest rates.

Democrats implemented subsidized housing markets.

Democrats took over the airlines

Democrats took over Amtrak

Democrats cartelized businesses through the Chamber of Commerce

Democrats restricted competition and gave large market players a huge advantage through the creation of the EPA and FDA

Democrats routinely shakedown major corporations by threating intrusive regulations if they industry players don't play ball (fund pet projects or donate to political campaigns).

Democrats restricted private oil drilling and cartelized the domestic oil markets through regulation, preventing startup oil producers from competing and walled off HUGE portions of our oil supply in the national reserve.

The list goes on and on and on.

I could sit here for hours listing all of the communist/fascist actions taken by democrats.

So simply claiming you are not a communist means nothing when your actions are exactly what a Marxist or Fascist would do.


The difference between a Marxist and a Fascist:

The Marxist wants direct government ownership of industry.

The Fascist wants to direct control over private industry.

Communists are not the same as fascists. And neither democrats nor republicans are either.This is just silly now.

But it goes to the point that the people who spend time bickering over inane things like this are the ones hindering not helping the cause. They turn people off with this kind of endless drivel and distract everyone from the real causes and solutions, and literally paralyze an entire nation. Even if there is a valid point in there somewhere, no one's going to hear it.

So, yes, you could go on for hours, but no one's going to listen. Use simple language that everyone can understand without assigning perceived blame and name-calling, Identify the root causes, and come up with some solutions.

All the rest of this superfluous babble is a waste of everyone's time and energy.

Blame must be assigned to those who caused this disaster.

If Beck wants to call them Marxist and Fascists, I feel he is perfectly justified in doing so.

The actions of our criminal government are EXACTLY what a Marxist or Fascist would do.

Lets see what the Communist Manifesto has to say:


1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.



Let's see what Benito Mussolini has to say:


Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.

It is the State which educates its citizens in civic virtue, gives them a consciousness of their mission and welds them into unity.

The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative.

War is to man what maternity is to a woman. From a philosophical and doctrinal viewpoint, I do not believe in perpetual peace.



Lets see what the Doctrine of Fascism has to say:


Anti-individualistic, the Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State

No individuals or groups (political parties, cultural associations, economic unions, social classes) outside the State (15). Fascism is therefore opposed to Socialism to which unity within the State (which amalgamates classes into a single economic and ethical reality) is unknown, and which sees in history nothing but the class struggle. Fascism is likewise opposed to trade unionism as a class weapon. But when brought within the orbit of the State, Fascism recognizes the real needs which gave rise to socialism and trade unionism, giving them due weight in the guild or corporative system in which divergent interests are coordinated and harmonized in the unity of the State


That last one is a nearly picture perfect definition of our current government.

Democrats took over General Motors


How?? By mid this year the government loans should be repaid...so how exactly is GM run by the government now? It's a publicly traded company for crying out loud...



Democrats implemented centrally planned interest rates.


What's bad about centrally planned interest rates?



Democrats implemented subsidized housing markets.


And the GOP deregulated the mortgage market to the point where banks were able to take ridiculous risks, pulling down the entire economy in the process. That was waaaaaay more damning than any subsidized housing.



Democrats took over the airlines


No they didn't...last I checked the airlines are public companies




Democrats took over Amtrak


Amtrak was turned into the monster it is in 1971, during Nixon...a Republican!!




Democrats cartelized businesses through the Chamber of Commerce


Cartelized? In what way??



Democrats restricted competition and gave large market players a huge advantage through the creation of the EPA and FDA


The EPA is a great thing for the consumer, and I don't want my kids to lik lead paint, or eat unhealthy stuff...so the FDA's good in my book too. Profit for corporations are a good thing, but not at the expense of the environment or health.



Democrats routinely shakedown major corporations by threating intrusive regulations if they industry players don't play ball (fund pet projects or donate to political campaigns).


Proof? And even if, the oil industry gets $4bil/yr in subsidies every single year...who wants that to remain the case??? The GOP!! They're fighting Obama tooth and nail against taking the subsidies away.



Democrats restricted private oil drilling and cartelized the domestic oil markets through regulation, preventing startup oil producers from competing and walled off HUGE portions of our oil supply in the national reserve.


I think the latest oil spill made it abundantly clear that we NEED regulation...and I have a feeling the people living down South where it happened would agree.



The list goes on and on and on.


Please go on, I like to laugh
