Glenn Beck is just a complete bloody idiot who plagiarizes other people's material and makes it his own.

Beck: ‘If you take what I say as gospel, you’re an idiot.’

Today, the New York Times has a front-page article on the success of Glenn Beck’s Fox News show. According to the Times, Beck has become “one of the most powerful media voices for the nation’s conservative populist anger.” Although he says he believes every word he says, he doesn’t think smart people should actually listen to him:

Cute. You're implying Beck doesn't believe what he says himself and it's not true. Beck's point was: Don't trust what anyone tells you without verifying it independently. He believes everything he says and wants his audience to believe it too but only after doing their own research. In my opinion that's neither the stand of a shill or a liar. I'll admit I had a problem with some of his theatrics but his facts are usually sound and his opinions usually make sense.

HEY! just in case anybody missed the point. Only Kanye and Obama believe they are -completely- right, and that everybody else should shut up and listen.

Not a chance in Hades they're wrong, right?

Are YOU sure You are right?

NEVER ASSUME ANYTHING. Please. Our way of life may just wind up depending on you.

Just great.

thanks bro for the defend. i goin my tired tail to sleep.

Can you show some proof of Obama saying he is right all of the time? Because if he did then certainly there would be a thread on it here.

There are idiots on both sides of the party. It is your own fault if you actually believe the fear that the MSM feeds you.

PUHHHHHLEASE! Glenn Beck is a shill for his corporate interests and he only said controversial things in order to get ratings.

“I say on the air all time, ‘if you take what I say as gospel, you’re an idiot.’ ”

From the horses mouth

Sorry, he's not a prophet, he's not a preacher, he isn't your savior. He's just a rodeo clown.

Glen Beck is the Lady Gaga of the Media. He is a copy cat with no original ideas of his own. Many people have predicted this throughout the last 50 years. Ever heard of Chuck Harder? There were books written about it such as "The Planned Destruction of America". I don't know how to embed videos, but Check out this video of Robert Welsh in 1958.

I have wondered the same thing. A lot of what he says is right on. Ppl should take notice if more people did we could prepare and maybe stop the madness we see coming our way but their a to many ppl opposed to doing their own research and seeing the truth.

Go gbtv we need you more than ever.

As a prophet I don't know but when someone is screaming from the rooftops and their predictions are proven people should stop, lislten and take action. But our world is so negative right now only a few take the time to listen and act.

Good post. Eyes wide open.

Are you serious!

He is the only one out there doing what he is doing. Starting his own network, helping ppl prepare and accurate predictions one after another. Wow you really need to look into him and his work and stop repeating all the crap you have been fed about him. Regurgitation is the worst medicine ever swallowed.

Do it then you may reply to my repines to you.

Haha, You are funny. I have watched and listened to Glen Beck for years since he was on hln. I don't hate him. I've always liked him. But, after doing a whole lot of research I realized that "his" ideas are not his own. He simply heard and read these ideas from many people that came before him.

Glenn Beck is no prophet, he is a Media Company with a staff of writers, producers, directors, PAs and A&R guys, all geared to a well researched demographic [older white conservative Christians] The message is tailored to a certain group of people to sell the crap he advertises on his show; he knows his audience and he knows what they want to hear and to keep them listening/watching to keep the ratings up, attract advertizes and stay in business; he gives it to em.

Glenn Beck is no fool; he is using a tried and true media business model just like Hanna Montana, Zac Efron and other "Stars" to get and keep "fans"

Buy into the hype if you want to, but even Mr. Beck doesn't believe half the stuff he floats out there.

I work in media and this BS is all to familiar. "Make as much money as you can for as long as you can" is the name of the tune. Beck will retire obscenely wealthy and laugh at how easy it was to pull it off. Actually he is laughing now.....

Like Glenn Beck or not, he is an astute student of history.

What is happening now, is pretty much what happened in Germany when their economy and the Weimer Republic went into the crapper in the 1920s.

We saw the rise of protests...left vs right ...socialist vs nationalist vs communist...and we saw sub factions...some radical, some were down right violent thugs... this is the enviroment that gave rise to theUnions, SA, the Brown Shirts, The National Socialists...Nazis... all backed by different societies and factions and the noble warrior cless, and the industrialists...

It was in this enviroment that Hitler came to power..and it wasn;t overnight. it was about a 5-7 year process and series of elections in which the nazis and those that backed them came to power.

If that is our model, we are in some very dangerous times. This is what Glenn Beck saw.. and if you read history, you will see we are following the template pretty dead on. Go get a book on the Rise of the Nazi Party or The Rise and Fall of Nazi Germany or read about the political civil war that befell Germany in the 1920s...replace the names from 90 years ago with the names of todays activists... the political leanings are the same...just fill in the blanks and you will see what has happened and what is about to befall America.

Scary stuff indeed.

Don't even read a thread before you spew ignorance, huh.

Debunked this vid on page 2.

All you childrens try keep up now.

Re; Whaa's post farther above.

What do you expect the man to do?

Do you know how many mouths he has to feed?

All his employees and their family's.

Have you ever ran a business?

What do you expect the man to do?

And again I say; This man has awoken more people than you'll ever know.

I am not ashamed to say, I like Glenn Beck. I have for a long time. His humor--the silly rants he and Pat and Stu go on (no one does AlGore quite like Pat Gray) have brightened many a depressing morning for me...and I bet a lot of others too. I know over the top, make everyone laugh (get attention) I do it muslef.

I have also learned a lot from Beck. If not for him, would we 'know' Cloward-Pivan, Van Jones, Arne Duncan, Bill Ayers, the Kagin backstory, Fast and Furious; Solyndra, etc? He has dared to go in and do the heavy lifting to expose the Obama plan.

He is a great salesman of himself--but he is also fearless--that fearless you 'get' when you come back from the brink. His facing and healing from his alcoholism makes him, IMO, 'do' what he does. Nothing else he figures could be worse--so forge ahed.

He is a good guy. Not a prpphet; not a Messiah. Just a flawed human raising to situation of his world.

Magnificently. And with M and Ms.

What ignorance?

That clip was just used as an illustration to show how media personalities fake stuff to manipulate their audience.

Those were fake manufactured tears, regardless of the reason for making them.

Beck and those tears are all a part of a brilliant marketing scheme to suck in as many devotees as they can.

I surmise you are one of those devotees.

Actually I'm keeping up fine, you are just misunderstanding my clear cut intention of showing how media and Media personalities work to establish a fan base. It's just American business at it's finest.

I do exactly the same thing as a producer at the network I work at. Lighten up! It's just entertainment for the masses.

Well...I finally read the entire thread. Wow. I thought ATSers were 'here' to deny ignorance...but the 'Beck plagerizes' Beck is a shill' blah blah blah posts are quite telling.

One of the things that impresses me about anyone, is when they say 'have you read...' Because I can learn and form my own opinion from that reference point.

Plagerize? How about refer his audience to books from the 1930s and 40s about the rise of the Third Reich. About the Reichstag Fire; about Woodrow Wilson. Things we are NOT taught in sanitized public school history, but things that were documented at that time that are historically relevant to today.

Deny ignorance; challenge what Beck (or Obama!) says. Read. Research. Learn. Think for yourself.

Are you claiming that this one email from an obviously disturbed individual represents all the OWS protesters?

How is that any different than those whom claim the whole tea party is racist based on a few questionable protest signs? How about all Republicans are criminals based on the actions by Nixon or all Democrats are perverts based on the actions of Clinton? How about all Caucasians believe they are Jesus based on one crazy guy you saw on a street corner?

My point is that
a: You can judge a whole movement or group by one or two wacky members
b: Beck can't exactly claim to be a prophet or have foresight when its only a few nutjobs screaming for violence.
c: I am cranky today

I can think back to a year or so ago when he said even more stuff along these lines. If any of you can find those things I would appreciate it if you could add it to this thread. Thanks, ahead of time.

Email Beck Suggests Obama Wants Youth In U.S. To "Riot" And "Kill People" So He Can Provide "The Change They Are Requesting"
February 11, 2011 12:55 pm ET
From the February 11 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Glenn Beck Program:

Now what do we have today? The youth at OWS saying they want to murder the rich in this country.

Um, i kinda hate to burst your bubble of lies but, i've seen alot of old people there too, like gray haired or balding old. Like vietnam veteran old. Your post is deceptive and aimed at disinforming the ATSers of the true situation at OWS. The OP smells like a corporate cronie to me, right down to the 5000 dollar suit. You've got disinformation dripping off you from every corner of you.
