Glenn Beck Rocks!

    The mainstream liberal media can't handle anyone who isn't politically correct. 
    Yes, Beck gave his opinion and that is his right.  People are treating Obama like he's God, he's not.
    How on earth can Obama attend a church for 20 years with a racist for a pastor and either not know or disagree?  That is not an insignificant issue. 
    I attended a church for the same amount of time, only it was a multi-racial church and I knew for sure what the pastor's viewpoint was. 
    On a major issue such as racism, why would anyone want to attend a church where hatred for white people was preached if the congregant didn't agree? 
    Howabout when Kanye West said George Bush hates black people?  Ya know there wasn't such an outcry.  That rather says it all.

      Regarding Rev Wright, BHO followed his traditional pattern; he supported him, then distanced himself from him, then threw him under the bus. Standard campaign rhetoric, but this time the major media outlets let him get skate on it.

        Obama distanced himself only when it became a political contention.

        Again, Beck is voicing the majority opinion - even that of many non-white Americans.

      Beck is great!  How could someone not like him?  As far as racism, I think many people have shared his thoughts.  If anyone is to blame, it is Obama for having attended church with an anti-American preacher who produces hateful speech; socializes with terrorists and communists; makes outlandish comments about white police officers; and appoints out of the closet communists as czars.

          I think it's incredibly difficult to dispute what "good" is. I can't imagine that spreading fear and contempt is a good thing. If fear and contempt is another person's truth, I beg to differ that it's anything more than a delusion or false perception.

My favorite scare was Obama's stimulus lies, we will fall off the edge of the cliff if this bill isnt passed! But only 10% has been spent and now we are facing double digit unemployment.

            The problem with all of them, including Beck, is that they base their presentations less on facts than on emotion. They manipulate the public with fear and misinformation rather than rationally looking at an issue and deciding on its merits. But that's why their on TV. They crave attention and rational debate doesn't give that. Showmanship, anger, comedy, that's what the public wants, that's what all these pundits give.

            It wouldn't be a problem if American's would take the time to research things themselves and make their voices heard. But we don't we listen to whoever is best able to manipulate us and echos our closest held beliefs.

    I like Beck, although he's hard to watch sometimes (overly histrionic) and I don't really watch him all that much - once or twice a month is enough. Except when there is a particularly interesting event in the news.

    He's point, I would say, in a growing awareness of how we're being sold out as a country.

    That's what I like about him.

      atomswifeyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I agree completely. I wrote a hub on oppression and how to get the masses to scream to for it.
      I believe systematically we have been headed straight towards a dictatorship of sorts as one by one our rights are taken and our governement grows bigger than the "We the people's voice".

      I think more people these days have read and are reading our constitution which is rather a good thing. However to apply and stand up for it, to "fight" all enemies foreign and domestic for it is a whole other story.

      I get somewhat frustrated and it really does sadden me that the American people (the majority anyway), seem to just be sitting by the wayside watching it all happen.

      I see it this way:
      You have those who support the policies IMPOSED by our government.
      Those who are afraid of our government which is really tyranny.
      Those who are unconcerned either way.
      Those who want to take a stand but do not know how.
      And there there are those who have a voice, use it, but it falls on deaf ears.

      So where do we go from here? I don't know. It's getting harder and harder to say.
      Obviously this is true (harder to say), when someone in the media has been baraded for freely expressing himself/herself, (like in the case of Beck), it can only mean that the masses meaning the majority, have also spoken and they said "We just flat out, do not care!"

      Sad. Very sad. In conclusion, I will add that my dad fought for this country. He served 20 years of his life in the army. He served 2 tours of duty in Korea and 2 in vietnam. He bravely stood up for and in the end died for his country.
      My dad passed away in 2003 due to "service related" disabilities. Our family now wonders when we look at at this "once upon a time.." great nation, if his death like others before and now after his, was in vain.

    As Robert Seidman of TV by the Numbers reports


    Though a little scandal might alienate advertisers, it's pure ratings gold. Last night Glenn Beck had over 3 million viewers at 5pm, second only to O'Reilly for the night. But, Beck had more 25-54 viewers than O'Reilly (888K to 876K). (snip) Even though Beck airs before primetime, when there are fewer people watching TV, he had the most 25-54 viewers in the cable news world for the night.

            It may suprise you to learn that I didn't vote for Obama, nor have I ever voted for a left-of center Democrat.  There is such a thing as a rational conservative, the problem is they get drowned out by the Becks et al who are better at stirring up the gullible.  Ever hear of George Will?  Probably not, he doesn't scream much. wink

    It is interesting for the lying, rabble rousing bastard Beck is supposed to be, his claims and conclusions are typically backed up with the accused’s own words and or actions whether vocalized on tape, in writing or proven associations and he presents them in more than just sound bite form.

    If you don’t find what he presents at a minimum as thought provoking and dismiss the “evidence” as rhetoric then you may have to re-examine your political convictions and associations. I find the silence and “no comment from the White House” very suspect if Beck is indeed so wrong.

      Leta Sposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      The White House doesn't comment because it isn't in their best interests to comment.  Beck isn't a serious player (he's an 'infotainment' purveyor); he isn't anyone they would want to address.  This has always been Obama's policy concerning, basically, public and press relations...even through the campaigning.  And very befitting a president.  This, incidentally, is why the McCain-Palin campaign imploded (it was Palin...who doesn't understand the difference between validity and reality TV).

          It isn't valid evidence of anything.  I've satisfied my need to refute what 'evidence' he presents by simple research and reading of valid sources.

          And the White House is entirely wise to approach Beck or Limbaugh or any of the news-entertainment spewers as they have.  You don't want a president who would stoop to this level.  It's ridiculous.

          And to stave off the obvious questioning and need for proof I know that will come in advance....if you are interested, scroll back about 10 pages into the other Beck thread.  There are links there.

      Why would we not know where the term originated? It was derived from a group of progressives who wanted to live as a collective while they followed a religious wacko. This same religious wacko was a great speaker and enthralled these masses of free thinkers who cared so much for others and convinced them that a fruity tasting substance laced with poison would cure all their ills!

      Hmmm, Ron that sounds a little familiar. Do you know where you were when you first heard of Rev, Jim? I do.

      Of course some of these free thinkers were smarter than the rest of the goobers so they had to be shot!

    Looks like you insulted every person there who called themselves a liberal on that hub with almost the same rhetoric.  Therefore, I won't take it personally.  And dismiss you for what you are.

          If I go and flag a hub now, nothing happens immediately. There is no effect on that hub. The writer doesn't know anyone's flagged it.

          What the flagging does is put the hub in a queue for the hubpages team to have a look at. If they decide it breaches the T & C for some reason, they mark it thus and email to let you know.

          Not that I really care what YOU think, but no, I assure you I reported nothing; I flagged nothing.  I only went to see what kind of a person would be expressing themselves the way you do here in the forums.

          What I saw proved to be what I thought.

          Since you cannot tell the difference between one liberal and another...and bash all of them, I'm pretty sure it could be any number of those on your hubs that you were nasty to that flagged your hub... 

          And, frankly, I don't believe in rating up or down or flagging people's writing, period.  You wouldn't see me banning Mien Kampf from the library, either.  But I do have the right to express what I think of the contents of your writing, just like you assume (wrongly, actually, but whatever) you have the right to call me a liar, a slug, a pig, and tell me that I should go kill myself, as you have on these boards.

        hey, PAL, the only difference between you and the school yard bully is that he tended to pick on the guys.  you, without your PAL dean here to help, are only able to pick on the women in this community.  it is quite amusing to watch, for all of us, as they repeatedly show you to be half the man that you really are.   it's a safe bet to say, based on your behavior here, that if you're even lucky enough to have a woman in your life, she's definitely walking around being verbally abused, and probably a whole lot more. 

        although most of the articles published on this site are considered hubs, the ones you write - filled with hate and anger and racism and bigotry - are in a league by themselves and are most certainly held in the highest esteem.

        not only are you a classic representation of everything that is wrong on this site, you're a shining example of why much of the planet feels the way they do about arrogant and loud-mouthed americans, texans in particular.

            yeah, your profile defines "real texans" to a t.  actually, tex, you misinterpreted what i wrote (somehow that doesn't surprise me) about a woman in your life.  the fact that you use the word "cowered" does not escape me.  what i suggested, in no uncertain terms, is that she's probably walking around, feeling beat up: emotionally, mentally, and physically. 

            there was a time, so many years ago, when someone such as yourself came along.  it was approaching midnite, on a dark country road, where three of the four occupants in the car were quite fed up with a loud-mouthed texan.  high school graduation nite, a bit of alcohol, and a healthy dose of ignorance thrown in for good measure.  stopping the car, dragging his foul-mouthed ass out of the back seat, he was introduced to the combined assets of my strength and size, even at that age. more than anything, it's the sound i remember most: a fence creaking in the dark of nite.  as that barbed-wire fence shook and rattled for 30 yards in either direction with the impact of his body, it was at that moment that i realized there was no need for any further action on my part.  the next morning i received a phone call from the high school principal.  he thanked me for my behavior the previous nite, stating that his nephew had had that coming for a long time.  his only question to me was how i accomplished what i did without resorting to a brawl.   

            the gist of the story, tex, with a little t, is that i really am so beyond needing to prove my manliness in a fisticuffs fashion, where only a handful of testosterone induced morons get to watch the scene.  it's far more entertaining to engage here with someone of your mentality.  you are center stage and the whole world's our audience.

              Yeah you are beyond trying to prove how manly you are, right! So whats with the story? Are you trying to get me to admit I beat or verbally berate my wife? Then you are not familiar with Texas women are you? The offer was extended for you and whoever wanted to hunt down people on the internet, RandyGodwin was the only one man enough to take me up on it. So tell your story to your imaginary friends, I am far from impressed!

          I don't know many Texans, but I'd prefer to judge them on the basis of, say, the wonderful KCC who writes fantastic hubs, including about her home state of Texas.
