Skip to comments.Glenn Beck Hates 9/11 Survivors (Megabarf Alert)
Posted on 09/11/2009 5:29:39 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Glenn Beck hates 9/11 survivors. Shocking as it may sound, Glenn Beck claimed that he hates 9/11 survivors. The Fox news personality and media clown has always been an outrageous demagogue, a pied piper to the illiterate, unwashed masses that make up the Fox news audience.
Beck's remarks were made on the September 9 broadcast of The Glenn Beck Program:
you know it took me about a year to start hating the 9-11 victims' families? Took me about a year.
And when I see a 9-11 victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, "Oh shut up!" I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining.
From anybody else the remark would be unbelievable, for Beck, it is just another day at the office. To add insult to injury, Beck made the comments about his hatred for 9/11 survivors in trying to describe how much he hates the victims of Hurricane Katrina that were abandoned by the Bush administration in New Orleans.
About the survivors in New Orleans Beck said: But the second thought I had when I saw these people and they had to shut down the Astrodome and lock it down, I thought: I didn't think I could hate victims faster than the 9-11 victims.
And that's all we're hearing about, are the people in New Orleans. Those are the only ones we're seeing on television are the scumbags...
Beck is a moral monster. He uses his position of influence to spread hate and misinformation. But good people are fighting back. Color of Change is leading a boycott, and over 60 national sponsors have pulled out of the program. Beck's blatant racism, his open contempt and disrespect for the President, is despicable.
The Fox news network, and everyone associated with the Glenn Beck program, share a deep and lasting shame. Beck is the new Joe McCarthy. Like McCarthy, Beck's demagogic, reckless, and unsubstantiated accusations, as well as his public attacks on the character or patriotism of political opponents, will end in tragedy for Beck, and the network.
The headline misquotes Beck then.
If I knew nothing about Beck and got my news from places such as this I would hate Glenn Beck too. It’s ashame people believe this.
In my opinion, step one in fixing this country is to inform the people.
So this guy dislikes beck? LOL
OMG..did you see the picture of the guy who wrote this piece of crap. I love how libs are outraged about disrespect to a President when that’s all they did for 8 years. Did this guy ever write an editorial about Olbermann and his antics..don’t have to answer that.
Please post some video of Glenn Beck saying this.
I assume this is taken out of context. I assume he hated those who were complaining about the millions of dollars they received and wanted more.
Hey Nicky, sounds like you’re scared to death of the truth. Just like all your socialist friends.
Read the comments after the article. I think a FReeping is in order.
Absolutely!! Let’s see it,please.
I watch and listen every friggin’ day during the week. He never said anything like this.
Could this crank be part of the Oberloser’s ‘Let’s Smear Beck’ campaign?
You know, I kind of agree. I was so sick and tired of hearing from the witches of East Brunswick, whining about their pain, and how the millions they were getting was not sufficient. Ann Coulter encapsulated my feelinga about these people in her book “godless”
Search YouTube...beck 911 families....he says not all of them, but only about 10. Beck did not like some of these families who complained that only got so much money.
Amazing! I watched his show Wednesday and I don’t recall him saying that. Love to see the video and transcript to see the context.
Is this guy talking about Jeff Beck, the guitar player?
Boris Becker, the tennis player.
BTW, the “victim entitlement mentality” of some of these groups is amazing. I have a great deal of respect for the heroes on Flight 93, but their families’ demand for the memorial have been excessive. The Flight 93 memorial sits on a piece of land nearly twice the size of Mount Rushmore National Memorial. And, as the Flight 93 memorial was being developed, the families were whining that the government wouldn't fund it all, and that not all the land was going to be made available for the memorial. I feel for their losses, but there truly have been some demands that push or exceed the bounds of reason.
Didn’t the families that received money from the government complain that it wasn’t enough????
Wow this piece is like something from an alternate dimension or something. 180 degrees from reality.
Boris Becker, the tennis player.
Ohhhhhh...wasn’t that a character on a TV comedy series with that FOB that played on Cheers?
And the quotes are way out of context.
BTW, Rachel Madow just opened her show on MSNBC with this audio. I switched to Monk on USA, so I didn't hear the commentary about it. I wonder if she will disclose that it's over 4 years old.
Which, by sheer coincidence, by the substitution of a few words, is exactly the way I feel about Michael Stone's anarchist and gay parade of supporters --- if I were inclined to namecalling rather than to refuting accusation with, say, verifiable facts.
Remember when SF was called Baghdad by the Bay? Instead of Sodom wherever... ?
I thought so.
Fake pretense at a 35 IQ.
Beck criticized the less than a dozen families with the entitlement mentality mining a personal tragedy for all it was worth, and Stone pretending that the criticism applied to all 3000+ victims.
I would accuse him of playing dumb, but he ain't playing.
I guess in that alternate reality, anything goes...
This story will be shocking to all 28 people who subscribe to the examiner.
Is this the Onion?
Good Lord. Michael needs to put the bong down and slowly back away.
This guy is a jerk, but someone else is on the comments to the article spreading the rape story around.. other people may want to weigh in on the comments.
They make it sound like he said it on 9/9/09.
Wow, The Portland-Progressive-Examiner bashes Beck. What a surprise /s
What do they have, about 12 subscribers? I think the libtards are in a real panic. Ha-Ha, Go get em Beck!
One other thing, in addition to commenting, click the "report article" button below the article, above the comments. Let the people operating the site know the quotes are 4 years old and taken way out of context.
Holy Sh*t! Is that human????????? The long hair, the double ar-rings and the pathetic attempt at a gay beard had me fooled! I assumed this was a piece of pork belly left out in the sun for a week! Nice glasses! What a perv!
The left is TERRIFIED of Glenn Beck. That comment must have been sliced and diced to come out that way. Notice how he slams not only Glenn but the audience of Fox News.
I think this is the clip they’re talking about:
Talk about taking things out of context!
This is all they could find on him? rofl

Glenn Beck on Obama's hatred of white people, white culture
He didn't get the right kind of love and affection from his real dad...but he's still trying.
Meanwhile, 7 people have heard of him...compared to how many that know of Glenn Beck.
He also had a late library book in seventh grade.
That audio is from 2005. It was like two weeks after Katrina, when FEMA was handing out the ATM cards at the AstroDome. That was in September of 2005.
So, now, 4 years later, it finally bothers this guy enough to write this hit piece. Taking everything out of context and omitting the biggest part of Glenn’s explanation.
This guy over there at the Examiner does hate Glenn Beck. He’s written 16 hit pieces on Glenn Beck (so far). But he didn’t actually discover that he hated Glenn Beck until July 29 of this year. That’s the date on his first hit piece.
And now, after discovering that he hates Glenn Beck a little over a month ago, he digs up 4 year old audio from the weeks after Katrina, and he takes a few short lines completely out of context. If he hates Beck so much, why go out of his way to listen to 4 year old audio?
I’m sure his hatred will subside as soon as Olberman, Matthews and Madow (and whoever else he watches at MSNBC) move on to the next conservative talk radio or fox news personality.
This guy has a “two minutes hate” at least twice a day. He’s probably watching MSNBC for the hate, and they show images and play audio from Glenn Beck and from Joe Wilson today. I actually heard them playing this audio on Rachel Madow at 9pm. They opened the show with it. But MSNBC was at least honest enough to play it all the way to the part about “I really only hate about ten of them, not all of them.” It was an honest hit piece from MSNBC.
