1, What has he lied about?
Oh, where to start? How about this?
Lie number 1
No president has been sworn in without a bible.
I give you John Quincy Adams, Franklin Pierce, and Teddy Roosevelt.
2. Goebbels learned propaganda from the progressive movement in the west (namely Woodrow Wilson).
The Nazis learned the use of propaganda from the British after WW1. Mein Kampf and the speeches of Goebbels make this abundantly clear but facts
won't stop Beck from demonizing the left.
3. Obama is a racist.
What utter nonsense. I am sure some people would love to believe he is but there is no evidence that he is racist whatsoever. Many people who say this
could be hiding their own racism.
4. The left changed global warming to climate change to 'sell' the idea. Utter nonsense. It was a republican named Frank Lutz that help change the
way we refer to the issue because climate change sounds less severe.
Lutz's speciality in his own words...
“testing language and finding words that will help his clients sell their product or turn public opinion on an issue or a candidate.”[
5. The Sherrod video wasn't on Fox before she resigned. Also, Sherrod is a socialist and a racist, seriously Beck?
He also didn't ''rush to condemn her' and demanded 'her side of the story be heard'. From the very beginning Beck promoted the out of context
video put forth by Breitbart.
6. Obama proposed to increase the capital gains tax on every single American who invests.
He only proposed an increase on the upper income levels.
These are just off the top of my head. I wrote a 53 page paper on current media and propaganda. The lies of Glen Beck and Fox news took up a fairly
large portion of that paper.
Here is some fact checking from politifact.
Of course Beck would say that politifact is a George Soros front since they confront his outright lies.
A lot of pants on fires
Beck is nothing but a rodeo clown and in his own words, "If you take what I say as gospel, you're an idiot."
He promotes an ideology and facts be damned. The man doesn't care about the truth or about the complex issues facing our country today. He cares
about riling up his fanatical right wing audience and stroking his own ego.
