Skip to comments.Glenn Beck Has Completely Lost It
Posted on 01/06/2014 3:54:09 PM PST by Viennacon
I am concluding that Glenn Beck has either lost his mind, or is slowly becoming a leftist. Today on his site are two rather disturbing videos. The first in which he continues his crusade to support GLAAD, comparing Russia's law protecting minors from homosexual propaganda to the Holocaust, and blowing up incendiary comments made by a Russian actor for no apparent reason other than to help push the narrative of permanent victimhood that the homosexual lobby thrives on. Here, we can be treated to Glenn engaging in left wing obfuscation more likely to be used by Al Sharpton than any conservative. Glenn says GLAAD are a cartoon to him. Well, they arent' a cartoon to the Christians they have maligned and smeared over the years, aiding foul disgusting individuals like Dan Savage. Like the Freedom From Religion Foundation, GLAAD is a cultural terrorist organization. It does not seek to blow buildings up, but to take a sledgehammer to cultural institutions to forward a deranged agenda of warped tolerance. Glenn closes by declaring some of 'us' have lost our humanity. Give 'us' a break. This is a non-story.
But this is not all. Not only has Glenn continued full steam ahead with this empty cry of persecution in Russia, he also has written a heartfelt letter of understanding to none other than MSNBC's resident corn-rowed doofus, Melissa Harris-Perry. You'll recall Melissa has been embroiled in controversy since she and left wing comedians on a panel made some pretty disgusting remarks about the Romney's adopted grandson, who is black. Glenn is asked if its the same as Alec Baldwin's recent firing for his remarks off-set, and he merely brushes it aside saying 'Alec Baldwin is a bad man'.... really? And what exactly makes Melissa a 'good person at heart'? Is it her disgusting remarks about unborn children, or her wish to have people's kids removed from their families as property of the state? Is Martin Bashir a good guy, or a bad guy? I don't know where the hell this came from, but its ridiculous. Perry was exposed on that panel for the wretched demagogue she is, a phony race-baiter, and a sniping untalented stooge with zero moral foundation. If she's fired, good riddance. She's not a good person, she's a left wing statist with Stalinist positions on just about everything.
It's been a long time coming, but it's now quite clear Beck has abandoned conservatives, but he'll no doubt be calling them back just as soon as he has an announcement to announce. And I used to really enjoy his take on things.
Tune in next week for the earth-shattering reasons why.
There is serious, official persecution going on in Russia. Do you approve?
Glenn Beck is a goofball. It tempting to align with a popular goofball when he is saying things you agree with, but in the end, he is still a goofball.
persecution of homosexuals.
Speaking just for myself, I haven’t paid any attention to Beck since somewhere around the third time he promised a “bombshell” or “Breaking News” that never materialized.
Like the proverbial blind squirrel, he finds a nut once in a while, butt more often comes off as one.
Preventing someone from talking to children about sex is not ‘persecution’. That’s just insanity.
Glen Beck works for CNN.
No there’s not.
He is who he has always been, he just isn’t hiding it any longer.
Glenn has just found out that to be successful on TV - the GLAAD agenda has to be supported....I used to listen to him...but it was always one prediction after the other...to string along listeners from one week to the next...and would only follow up if something did happen and he could say - I told you so!...
Kinda like the 2012 version of Nostradamus - if you look hard enough one can make it fit...
One more turn coat to the ever losing side of the what is US national media...a bunch of traitors to the republic and the values that brought it greatness...and Islam and Gays had nothing to do with it!
Ah yes...Beck. Yet another instance where a bunch of freepers were mocked or ignored for telling the truth.
People (in general) who ‘bitterly cling’ to the idea that Beck is anything but a self promoting huckster after all his BS should quit bitching about the cult of personality around liberalism. No difference.
And no, for the record I do not begrudge him his talent for separating people from their cash while he helps advance liberal causes. If people are that stupid, they deserve to be separated from their money.
Why take on Russia?
I mean, shouldn’t he evaluate which countries in the world have the all time toughest laws against homosexuality and start from the top?
Two words. Spontaneous combustion. Soon.
I think Beck is sucking wind for BUX. He got overextended and is now deep in the red.
Kissin a little leftist and queer booty might get him some relief. Especially with the hollywierds and queers crowd.
Picking on Pooty is easy and fun. After all, he firmly believes that us old cold war guys will agree with EVERYTHING negative about Russia. And he can score points with the queers too. So what’s he got to lose?
Well, as one of those old cold war guys, I’ve got MORE RESPECT for Putin’s Russia than I’ve got for what’s going on here now. They have morality on their side, and they are sticking to it. What’s not to respect? Once upon a time, we had that here too. Those days are gone.
Just my humble opinion.
His inability to catch a major cable player like verizon or what-have-you, is killing him slowly.
When he came out for “gay marriage”, had already lost it
He’s wacky. He always was.
a ban on propagandizing to kids is not persecution
He’s gone off the edge. I expect some of his staff to quit soon.
Maybe it's a cold war holdover, or he just doesn't like Putin. He wouldn't be alone there.
Nowadays, though, you probably don't want to say, "I will stand with the _________" (gays, Muslims, etc.). People inevitably take it the wrong way.
Could be he thinks MHP is hot -- though he did attack her over every other stupid or offensive thing she said, so you do have to wonder what changed.
Maybe he’s trying to set one of his staff up on a date with her. Who knows. She’s a nutjob.
Beck lost me when he attacked Newt Gingrich with a fury that should have been reserved for the Antichrist.
Old John Bircher here.
Back when me and mine were trying to wake America up to what has now “caught up,” it was bozos like Beck who laughed the loudest and ridiculed the most. After Lintball, maybe.
No, wait, I’ll take that back. Rushbo started out being critical, “black helicopter crowd.” Then he suddenly stopped the insults and subsequently just refused to take the calls.
Beck on the other hand, went out of his way to impugn and insult.
So the worm has turned.
I’m not surprised. Beck is a Libertarian.
I finally tuned him out for good.
Cash strapped can do that to you. Especially when you have a huge burn rate and not enough accounts receivables.
Been there, did that. Tushy is still on fire.
Beck hasn’t “completely lost it”. He never had “it”.
I believe the fact that Utah is going gay has something to do with this as well. But mentioning that aspect will upset his flock even further.
Allowing homosexuals to groom children for later recruitment is something that NO society should permit.
I tuned into KTLK 1150am here in so California this morning and heard some of his broadcast. At first I was not sure who this was as I had not heard him on the radio before. KTLK 1150am started a new format so he is the morning guy.
He sounded like he was around the bend.
I switched back to KRLA 870am and listened to Ben Shapiro and Elisha Krauss and the liberal nut Brian Whitman. Brian drives me nuts at times but he sounded better then Glenn.
I rarely listen to Beck but I did today. He explained that he would side with GLAAD over someone that wanted to put homosexuals into the ovens alive.
Strawman BS. I wasn’t aware Russia/Putin had that on the agenda. Muslims do though
Why would an American libertarian have anything at all to say or do regarding how Russia runs their state?
Listen to the video on his site. He goes a lot further than that, with baseless comparisons and liberal sliming of Russia, not just the guy who said that, who was only an actor.
Putin isn’t going to put gays into ovens. He wants to protect children from homosexual propaganda. Not quite the same thing, is it?
Why take on Russia?
I mean, shouldnt he evaluate which countries in the world have the all time toughest laws against homosexuality and promote them from the top?
Not my problem. I'm concerned about the serious, official persecution here.
Just commented on Beck and this issue a few days ago. I used to listen to Beck’s radio show quite frequently. Even drove four hours and paid good money to see him give a speech/presentation in Tyler, TX a few years ago. But the moment, over a year ago, when Beck started expressing how he was fine with homo marriage, I turned him off and hadn’t listened to him a single minute ever since.
... Until today. I was in my car, waiting for a relative who was at a doctor’s visit, and turned on the car-radio. I listened to about five minutes of him blathering on about “loving” everyone, and how he’d continue to stand with GLAAD versus some unknown Russian actor... making a big deal about all that while basically saying the Duck Dynasty flare-up was a big nothing, with Beck blathering on in his sloppy, emotional ‘kumbaya’ mode. Couldn’t stomach it, and turned it off after about five minutes.
Man, I just can’t take Beck at ALL anymore. He can go ahead and stand with the perverts of GLAAD all he wants. The very type of scumbags who’ve helped turn America into such a deviant sewer. I’m far more impressed with Putin and his actions, demonstrating he’s interested in the survival of his country and its culture. He sees America rotting and decaying towards oblivion, and obviously doesn’t want his country to share the same fate.
Yes, and I can just see a point where Glenn become the RINOS he bemoans, and begins thinking Rob Portman is a man of virtue.
Newt screwed up bigtime. Newt can no be trusted. His sail follows the wind. Scozzafava was his.
This is why we get shitty candidates. Holding a stupid meaningless decision like Scozzafava against our best standard bearers. You don’t see the left holding Benghazi, Whitewater, or Hillarycare against their front runner. Now Romneycare... That’s something to hold against somebody. Sitting on a couch with pelosi? Not so much.
I agree. I used to like listening to his show. Now, I haven’t got a clue about which direction he’s coming from or which direction he’s going.
