Was Glenn Beck Showing Contempt For Chuck Norris?
Amerisrael ^

Posted on 10/10/2009 12:42:19 PM PDT by Amerisrael

Any Islamists who may have watched a Glenn Beck interview with Chuck Norris, must have taken delight from Beck pointing the soles of his shoes at Norris:

As they also took delight from Obama doing the same to PM Netanyahu:

01125106-par-4584-imagefile-jpg

The incident occurrs at about 4:33 minutes into the video. Caution Mr. Beck, Norris sleeps with a night-light. Not because he's afraid of the dark, but because the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris. As well as jihadists!

As an article at Weasel Zippers points out, among Islamists there is no greater insult than pointing the soles of one's shoes at someone. Obama certainly knew this. Did Glenn Beck?

In fact, most Americans are very familiar with this Islamist practice of insult, after watching scores of Iraqis show their contempt for Saddam Hussein by banging the soles of their shoes on his statue, pulled down with the help of U.S. troops. 

Norris has been to Iraq a couple of times visiting with our troops.

In watching the Beck/Norris interview one cannot but be cognizant of the fact that Beck certainly knew of Chuck Norris's fervent support for Huckabee during the Republican primary.

And in that regard, of the anger displayed by both Romney and Beck over Huck's "after-the-interview" question to a reporter: "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and Satan are brothers"?

Beck was ever afterwards extremely anti-Huckabee. Like Islamists who become enraged when the validity of Islam is questioned, criticised, or truthful analysis into the Koran or Muhammad are conducted. Look at how they hate Robert Spencer and Bridgett Gabriel.

You’ll note that both Beck and Norris are holding M&Ms. The thing is, THEY ARE THE EXACT SAME M&Ms. Dispite these two men being at different locations, Norris snatched the M&Ms out of Beck’s hands. The camera isn’t fast enough to catch this, that’s why they look like they are both holding M&Ms simultaneously.

Great interview. Both men are totally relaxed. They are good friends. The M&M bit was hilarious!

If anything, Beck is showing the soles of his shoes to the gubment hacks that are keeping an eye on his show.

And you’ll notice that Beck and Obozo are using the same hand gesture. The gesture is is like the position an engineer would hold a drafting pen. As you know, engineers also use a compass which is a well known freemason symbol.

Interesting huh?

LOL

What stupidity. Beck isn’t a muslim, and he could care less about what muslims view as a sign of disrespect. He’s an American, and he was showing classic relaxed behavior for an American male.

So what about zero? He grew up in a muslim culture, so his actions are subject to analysis in that context.

I don’t listen to Glenn Beck anymore because I work when he is on air. I miss his parodies and satire, which as Rush points out consistently the left doesn’t get as humor because they are without humor.

Anyone that listened to Beck after 9-11 knows many of his bits are directed to the left and the right. One of my favorite characters is Jim Dingle, a talk radio host. Back in the early part of the decade, Jim Dingle was a direct satire on some big names in the talk radio business. One of alter-ego Dingle’s targets was Hannity and O’ Reilly. All in fun. The lefties laugh when the righties get hammered but god help us all when their boys get the boot.

I cry laughing whenever he does his Delilah at night satire with the faux CD collection of love songs for lonely overweight people.

How is his humor different from SNL’s faux commercials for OOPS I Crapped My Pants, the Chris Farley-Adam Sandler Schmitt’s Gay Beer commercial, Bass-o-matic, and Super Colon Blow? He’s conservative.

I sincerely doubt this had any meaning for Beck. However, for those who oppose Romney in part because of his Mormonism (that would include me), they should remember that Beck is a Mormon as well.

To me, Mormonism is a cult and an insult to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in that they use His name, but make for themselves a false Gospel. Because of this, although I appreciate Beck's willingness to take on the leftist establishment, I cannot trust him.

Of course not. If Glenn ever shows contempt for Chuck, Chuck will simply make him disappear.

"Was Glenn Beck Showing Contempt For Chuck Norris?"

No. In order for it to be an insult, you need one or two Muslims to participate. Even then it may not be an insult. Last I heard, neither Norris nor Beck are muslims.

The saddest thing is that you “conservative” Beck haters make liberals look good. At least they have the manhood to come right out and say it. You on the other hand come up with some psychotic little conspiracy theory and try to convince people to agree through underhanded means.

Fortunately this was about the most pathetic attempt I’ve ever seen.

Hmm. Seems to me Obama was talking to Netanyahu on the phone and therefore Netanyahu wasn’t there to see the soles of his shoes. So unless this is an extreme example of passive-aggressive behavior, Obama wasn’t delivering any message to Netanyahu other than whatever he was saying to him. As for Beck, everyone knows that the best way to enjoy M&Ms is with your feet propped up on a desk. So i say not guilty to both of them (and it’s not often one gets to say that about Obama).

IMO, this post (OP) is meant for nothing more than to bring out the GB bashers and incite a flame war.

The only contempt zer0 showed was to the entire concept of America and Americans by putting his filthy feet on the desk in the Oval Office.

zer0 is a contempt able POS, an enemy of this country and shouldn't even be able to step within our boarders, let alone the White House

Sir, you have insulted me beyond all bounds. And besides, your feet stink. To pay for the gross insult to my honor and to my nose i should challenge you to a duel, but fortunately for me (since i’m not much of a duelist) this is college gameday and i am thereby duty bound to prop up my feet in front of the tv and watch football the rest of the day. Good day.

I'm not much of a Beck fan here, I find him to be a little over melodramatic for my taste...but I have to say this Amerisreal screed is genuinely pathetic. It is almost as pathetic as Obama winning the Nobel prize...and as laughable.

Oh yeah, did anyone else notice that the way Chuck Norris is holding his M&M's he must be eating with his left hand. In the Middle East eating with your left hand is an insult...do you think that Chuck was insulting Glenn.......:-)

Yuk, yuk, yuk!

See, there’s that nasty freedom of religion / freedom of assembly thingy again. You are free but no one else is free. But you see, other people think your views are cult-like too. Doesn’t freedom apply to everyone or does it only apply to you and your creed?

God how I hate how we have a guy in the White House because you refused to vote for Romney over McCain. All because your intolerance blinded you. How is a Mormon any different than Presidents that were unitarian (John Adams), Quaker (Nixon), Deist-gnostic (Jefferson), Catholic (Kennedy), Non-sectarian (Lincoln and Reagan), or Episcopalian (Bush 41)? You really think Romney was going to have 5 wives and forcably convert you?

This from Arutz Sheva:

“Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Etinger, a former senior Israeli diplomat in Washington, told Israel National News that the President has “total control” of the photographs that are issued by the White House and that he has no doubt that either Obama or a top staffer like White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel approved the picture’s dissemination.”

Huckabee campaigned for POTUS as a holier-than-thou prepared to tell you what to eat (notice his expanded girth today), and how much executives should earn, among other liberal platforms. He was selling you snake oil just like Obama.

Your religious bigotry reveals that James Carville is likely correct--the Democrats will rule for generations now.

Glenn Beck has done far more for the conservative cause than your religious prejudice and whining.

It is not religious prejudice. That’s what many liberal Afro-Americans claim when you take issue with Obama because of his foreign policy appeasement, or his pushing for marxist nationalization of healthcare. “Your racist”.

Or the Islamists who are angry when the Koran or islam is challenged. “Your racist”. An “Islamophobe”.

There way of diverting attention from the truth.
And perhaps your way?

I support Beck's freedom of religion as well as yours. Saying that I believe a particular religion to be a cult is not to say people shouldn't have the freedom to practice it. I couldn't care less if someone thinks my belief is cultish. Suggesting that because I believe some religions are cults, that is somehow the same thing as suggesting they should not have the freedom to practice their faiths is completely dishonest and putting words into my mouth.

My belief about Mormonism is that it is an authoritarian cult that controls the lives of it's adherents. It is a very weird faith obvious built on the lies of a violent scoundrel, Joseph Smith. Those who accept it don't have the religious rigor to question it's precepts, but they are very willing to accept the worldly benefits it offers. As much as I dislike McCain, I would choose him any day over Romney the grinning game show host.

Your desciption of Reagan and Lincoln is dishonest. They both openly spoke the name of Jesus as Savior. Most of the others (Nixon, Kennedy) did not live or govern within the denominational strictures imposed by their faiths.

I hope you respect my freedom of speech as I express my beliefs. It sounds like you don't.
