Is It a Good Thing?

    Yesterday Glenn Beck and his wife met his college age daughter and her boyfriend at a park in NYC where they show movies outdoors free. 

    The rest of the family was there when Beck arrived from work just about the time the movie was starting.   Before too long people started pointing at the group.   One woman stood up and pointed at them and shouted that she hates Republicans. 

    When his wife and daughter went to the restroom half way across the park a man pointed at them and shouted that he hates conservatives.

    The group behind them were drunk and kept making comments.  One spilled an alcoholic beverage on Mrs. Beck back.  The heckling continued through the movie.  The Beck's stayed through the movie.

    People were taking pictures of them and they are being posted on the internet.

    Good?  Bad?  Indifferent?

      Do you really think it was typical for New Yorkers?  Beck didn't think that.  I think he lives there.

        Sorry Ann, Glenn is a drama queen and I also live and work there.Once these people take the money to be in the public eye they need to realize that they are now open for public interaction,good or bad.

          There is a clip of the drama queen himself using vicks vapor rub under his eyes prior to a crying jagged where he proclaims how he loves America.

          He's a contemptible toad who deserves to be mocked and ridiculed any time he shows his face.

            Mocking and ridicule is not acceptable for anyone who is minding his own business.
            Though I may not agree with him 100%, I think his behavior and civility in the situation was 100% superior to those who acted like rude thugs. 
            If this was a public family event, the people who tried to torment him and his family set a terrible example for all the kids.

        "It was a hostile situation…Long story short, somebody kicked a cup of wine intentionally on my wife’s back, so she was completely wet, our blanket was wet. As my daughter and my wife went to go to use the restroom, they were about, i dunno, a quarter of a block away I guess…some guy stood up and pointed their fingers at them and said “We hate conservatives here.”

        People were taking pictures of my family. You can take pictures of me, make me into a monster, but please leave my family out of it."


        Yeah great of you all to act like lil whiners and attack a man's family. And there a many more sources regarding it. just unacceptable. you can hate the man, but you do not get to attack his family. But hey, this is just the way you all act and think it makes you great.

            I got somehting for you here...

            George Soros Says He Feels No Remorse For Collaborating With Nazis During WWII to Send His Fellow Jews to the Death Camps, Steal Their Property

            George’s father Theodore tried to change the family’s fortunes by changing their name to something less Jewish-sounding. It didn’t help. And soon war came.

            When the Nazis took total control of Hungary in 1944, the Holocaust followed. In two months, 440,000 Hungarian Jews were deported to death camps.

            To survive, George, then a teenager, collaborated with the Nazis.

            First he worked for the Judenrat. That was the Jewish council set up by the Nazis to do their dirty work for them. Instead of the Nazis rounding up Jews every day for the trains, they delegated that murderous task to Jews who were willing to do it to survive another day at the expense of their neighbours.

            Theodore hatched a better plan for his son. He bribed a non-Jewish official at the agriculture ministry to let George live with him. George helped the official confiscate property from Jews.

            By collaborating with the Nazis, George survived the Holocaust. He turned on other Jews to spare himself.

            George moved to London after the war and then to New York, where he became a stockbroker. He’s rich now. Forbes magazine says he’s the 35th richest man in the world. Maybe you’ve heard of him. He goes by the name his father invented: George Soros.

            How does Soros feel about what he did as a teenager? Has it kept him up at night?

            Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes asked him that. Was it difficult? “Not at all,” Soros answered.

            “No feeling of guilt?” asked Kroft. “No,” said Soros. “There was no sense that I shouldn’t be there. If I wasn’t doing it, somebody else would be taking it away anyhow. Whether I was there or not. So I had no sense of guilt.”

            A Nazi would steal the Jews’ property anyways. So why not him?

            That moral hollowness has shaped Soros’ life. He’s a rabid critic of capitalism, but in 1992 when he saw a chance, he speculated against the British pound, causing it to crash, devastating retirement savings for millions of Britons. Soros pocketed $1.1 billion for himself. If he didn’t do it, someone else would, right?

            In 2002, Soros was convicted of insider trading in France, and fined millions of dollars. He admitted buying the shares, but denied it was a crime.

            Last year, when he made $3.3 billion off the banking collapse, he called the world’s financial crisis “the culmination of my life’s work.”

            This is a man who boasted he offered to help his mother commit suicide. Apparently he didn’t see enough death in Hungary.

            Soros is a sociopath. But he’s a sociopath with $14 billion, and he likes to spend it on politics.

            And there is video of the interview on 20/20 so it cannot be denied.

                  TM some of these idiots could get slammed in the face with proof and they would find some excuse to refute it.

                  These people think they are intelligent but are nothing but blood sucking leeches. where ever they think they can get something free. They should try to take chances and not worry about joining some stupid union and think they will be set. They do not have the entrepreneurial minds to create wealth and live a great life.

                  My family came here from Italy with absolutely nothing! we struggled when I was a kid and had to wear hand me downs and plenty of pasta because we couldn't afford meat every night. sometimes my Mother would cut up a few hot dogs and put in in rice and we thought it was special.

                  They taught us to dream big and never give up and family was important. I opened my first business when I was 19, made mistakes and closed about a year later, I waited another year and a half and tried again. I remembered all the stupid mistakes I made the first time and grew the business with sales over 2M back in the early 90's I did very well and opened up a restaurant for my brother who still owns it to this day! My middle brother I helped put through NYU and graduated and does extremely well and moved to Texas and loves it.

                  We would have never had the opportunities if we were in Italy or any other European country. This country is great and hope it stays that way for my kids because they have the spirit and drive instilled in them.

                  My kids tell me how many professors are far left nuts and they have to stay quiet because they do not want to get a bad grade because they don't believe what he does. Some have challenged the so called professor and received lower grades. It is very sad today and they are trying to brainwash our kids.

                  I make sure my kids (all four)learn both sides and make educated decisions.

        There wasn't any violence, if I'm not mistaken.

        Yelling at people is one thing, ATTACKING someone is another.

        So... Everything but the spilled beer seems within reason.

        If people started harassing my family because of who I was, I would probably ask my family if they wanted to ditch me, or move. And if they agree "neither", I'd make sure my rifle was loaded.

        ... thanks for "giving me too much credit". And most of my arguments have no passion, except when dealing with another passioned individual. I generally just leave those arguments - but racism is racism.

And that includes all the Leftists grouping up with Islam to assault the Banks, Israel, tell people to stop paying Mortgages, George Soros and Petro-Bras, Commies in the White House, and on, and on, and on...

    So you all can run the interference all you want. Anyone who actually takes the time to look at what he is say... -which is mostly just showing people what the, Leftists, Muslims, Commies, Socialists, and all other your ilk, are sayin, and planning to do... will see that it is happening almost exactly as he says.

    The only thing Leftists are doing, is delaying most things they have planned by about 60 to 90 days, to make it look like he was wrong, and then there it is.

      This guy has predicted so much truth it truly isn't funny!

      The leftist hate him because he is exposing them and letting there cat out of the bag.

      I told many, I challenge them to show me where Becks facts are false! Not one person has come forward with anything, Just Doug with the ridiculous video of the photo shoot which was classic leftist nonsense.

      Beck is too ole mighty for my liking but the man is correct and not one person can show he is lying!

      They have thousands of people looking at every word he says to try and get him. The libitards should be ashamed of themselves as they are all hypocrites!

    Beck kind of fits the criteria for a prophet of God.   The Biblical ones were all irritating and flawed men who were reviled by most people, maybe even those who believed them.   And like you said, Danny, he is right on.  Like the Biblical prophets.   Their messages were never optimistic either.

      Me too, TM.   I had a newspaper column in a university town for five years.   Got involved in politics and had to give it up.  I wasn't real popular with liberals. smile  What I used to do was describe a situation very clearly  from a liberal perspective with an optimistic lilt, I'd write with a smile on my face.  So I'd get the readers all roped in and then I'd turn and demolish the the case  I'd just built. 

      Made for interesting reading and the articles got a lot of comment.  Made some very interesting friends through the column.

      No patience for that type of writing anymore.

These are very Weak people easily sucked into violence and hatred.

    All the Beck’s did, was to continue a non violent resistance,  to ignorance and weak minded gang mentality. folks like those on the net, over objecting, after actually watching those video’s can not stand looking in a mirror exposing what they and people who think like that are, underneath.

    This chic send a letter to the paper claiming there was nothing going on at that park... but her tweets tell a different astory. Funny ass liars on the left.

    ----"It was my friend that spilled the glass of wine on Tanya -and I can assure you that it was a complete accident. A happy one, to be sure, but nonetheless a complete and utter accident. As soon as the wine spilled (and I question how Tanya became soaked from a half glass of wine) apologies were made and my friends pretty much scrambled to give Tanya & co napkins -no doubt aware that it would look terrible and that their actions could be perceived as purposeful. No words were exchanged after that, as I think that it became pretty clear to Beck & co that my friends and I were doing everything in our capacity to help clean the “mess”.---

    But what do her tweets say? Her and her friend were chatting before that, and is very revealing.

    Oh yes just a coincidental accident. Right! Losers all! And all of sudden their accounts are gone... speaks volumes.

        Those people who attacked his family are losers, John. You subscribe to abusing someones family cause you do not like or agree with them?

          I didn't say that, in fact I said the opposite. Don't tar everybody with the same brush.

            okay bro... I was a lil upset that you would support something like that. I had that you said you wouldn't but that remark threw me a bit. My apologies. I was sure you were a better man than that... so I was quite taken aback at the thought you would act, or support such acts as that.

            Good man, John. I know we do not agree on much... but there are limits as to how far one should go.

            New leftish ploy now being em-ployed. . .   Goes something like this.  To insult a group (only a leftish or Muslim group mind you) is to insult every individual adherent at a forum and therefore against forum rules.   Okay of course to insult conservatives and Christians and tea party protestors and their ilk because they obviously deserve it.

            Getting a tad Kafkaesque here in the Obamanation of desolation.
