Skip to comments.Tearful Glenn Beck Describes How He And His Family Were Attacked In New York Park
Posted on 06/28/2011 5:09:48 PM PDT by MissesBush
These people were some of the most hateful people I have ever seen, said a distraught Glenn Beck this morning as he described an altercation he and his family had last night while watching a screening of Alfred Hitchcocks The 39 Steps in New Yorks Bryant Park. Explaining that a group of people yelled at his family, took pictures of them, and kicked a cup of wine onto his wife, Beck said that his security team feels that, had he reacted poorly, things might have gone off. I swear to you I think, if I had suggested, and I almost did, Wow, does anybody have a rope? Because theres tree here. You could just lynch me. And I think there would have been a couple in the crowd that would have.
Beck took particular exception with Gawker (he didnt name the website although he clearly described this post) for posting pictures of his family.
Watch the segment via GlennBeck.com below:
Hatred and intolerance of others. Gee, what was that big government party that used similar tactics in the late 30’s?
He should know better about what Brownshirts Libs are, and yet we get this reaction—blubbering about how everyone needs to find love and get along. Hey dummy, the Libs don’t want to get along. They want to shut us down just like the Islamic savages do.
YES...he should move...like Rush did....take their TAX money away....
I get to read post after post after post attacking my California, but only in New York would this happen. It has got to be the rudest, nastiest city I have ever been to in my entire life.
Rude, snotty people, almost all of them liberal, and rotten weather on top of it.
Thanks, but I'll take California
Did he ask Mr. memory about the 39 steps?
Liberals reveal themselves in the face of that with which they disagree: with primal evil, violence and venom. Contrary to their little catchphrases (”diversity” “tolerance”), they only seek to destroy any man or institution that doesn’t tow their leftist line.
If you asked any one of these nuts WHY they hate Glenn Beck, I doubt you would receive a coherent sentence, much less a single fact based in reality.
And these are the people who now form the core of the Democratic party. They have hung on for so long because they have succeeded in pretending to the voters that they were a moderate party. Hopefully there are enough people today who are finally seeing how extreme and un-American they are.
“These people were some of the most hateful people I have ever seen,....”
They are called Democrats. Some people call them Nazis. By any other name, union, moveon. mob, they are thugs when they get together. This isn’t the America of our fathers.
Ever been to Boston?
It makes NYC look like Peoria when it come to leftist hate. NY just gets all the press.
Glad to see you’re alright (yawn) with conservatives being harassed. June is national gay pride month. For some reason I just remembered that when I read your post.
No, I haven’t had the pleasure. Thanks for the information...I’m taking notes.
I wouldn’t ask why they hate Glenn. They hate him because they’re told to hate him.
I would ask why they hate his wife and kids. And I would then ask why they target his wife and kids.
You can see the retweet in Jim Treacher's timeline:
Sitting behind glenn beck. Like RIGHT behind. suggestions for what I should do? You've got 3 hours to get them in.
America has pockets of unfriendly spots. New York just happens to have a bigger spot but I wouldn’t want to drive around parts of L.A. either.
It shouldn’t matter if this was Glenn Beck. Why the hell should anyone, any American be treated like this.
If the left was sooooo virtuous, why do they act so violent?
if he still paying taxes in new york? MOVE for gawd sakes and take all your money with you. Do a John Galt from Atlas Shrug
I just don't want them crying about it. June is national gay pride month. For some reason I just remembered that when I read your post.
If you've got something to say... say it.
I was born and raised there...got out for good 20 years ago. Even as a native I felt the hate, and that was long before conservative radio, the internet, etc. The state and local governments go out of their way to show their displeasure with those who aren’t orthodox liberal drones. The universities are Marxist havens, including the Catholic institutions.
I like Beck sometimes, but he is such a drama queen at times.
Because, like two year old children, they lack the ability to present, debate and defend their positions. So, just as toddlers do, they react by lashing out.
Ive always thought a Obama, Pelosi, Reid, M.Moore etc could much more safely walk thru a “conservative stronghold” without any problems at all........
vrs. a Beck, Rush, Palin walk thru a Liberal sewer such as Hyde park, NYC, San Fran, ..........
Its the Mob mentallity, the propensity for violence that permeates the Left wing thru History-—from Stalin, Lenin, Hitler Mao, Che’ up thru present enviro wakos’
........all willing to use violence
That would be a great idea. Move out and let their tax revenue fall even more.
Maybe they were hired.
What exactly is it that they are proud of? I'm not sure I understand.
Well Mr. Beck, it’s about time to suspend your disbelief that this could happen.
Yeah, that's the interesting question. No doubt you'd get an ends justify the means type answer or something along the lines of "well, the politics he advocates victimizes women and children, so his wife and children are fair game".
Yeah, I know what you mean by Boston. When I visited, you had to go with a group of people, and look like you couldn’t possibly be that talk radio personality, but that was about ten years ago. Oh yeah, and I was also warned not to wear a shirt for a team other than the Celtics or the Red Sox.
I was warned on my visit about 11 years ago, but I did get to see the historical sites from the American Revolution so rock on!
Is she in the pictures on Gawker? The one with the big ass?
No Flames from me...
And we have better weather, too.
If LA, SF and Sacramento all fell into giant sink holes and disappeared forever, that alone would probably tilt the scales enough to make California a conservative majority state.
You knew you were picking one, so you got it..
You could not possibly be more accurately describing your OWN home state.
I feel that the worst, most perverted and truly mentally ill people live in California. In Southern California, the stupidity, self-hatred (the worst kind!)and idiocy on constant display via in public behavior by the common populace is unmatched, even by Parisian standards.
In the North, well... nuff said. Bay Area should make anyone on this site, simply explode.
A$$holes know no borders, state or otherwise, but you wanted a fight so I’m always more than happy to defend the greatest city in the world.
L.A. wow, WHAT A JOKE! You know a bunch of houses and homeless Spanish people don’t constitute the definition of a “CITY”, right?
A city has big buildings, public transportation systems that work reasonably well (albeit expensive), NO POOLS, business and industry that produce real tangible products and spread wealth (not just garbage left wing motion picture propaganda).
And, there are a reasonably large amount of conservatives here.
Out of the ‘right type of people’, people that live here- (defined as a; professional, husband or wife, non-government $ taking citizen,voting citizen, non-governmental employe, etc, etc, etc you know the drill), there are large amount of conservatives.
I hardly meet anyone in NYC that any reasonable person would take seriously that at least isn’t moderate if not right leaning... and I meet a lot of people via my job and activities (like softball, which we lost in Central Park today by only 1 run- grrr) and have lived on the UES for the last 8 years, as well as growing up in NJ right outside the city.
I don’t remember what he said but James Gandolfini said something to Glenn at some broadway show and immediately apologized for saying it in front of Glenn’s son.
It must have been pretty bad for a liberal to realize they had stepped over the line.
Yeah, it's bad like that, too. Just like wearing anything but an Ohio State football shirt in Columbus. Complete strangers will serenade you with profanity.
You people run your mouths about Glenn crying and act like its an every day occurrence. (far from it)
Frankly that fact that you make assertions with zero knowledge makes me wonder what really makes you so different from liberals.
BTW, I noticed you live in NJ...I rest my case.
If you've got something to say... say it.
I think your comment is gay.
You're right, I had forgotten about that.
I’ll say it. You’re an a**hole.
“This kind of ugliness belongs in North Korea, not America.”
That type of vile activity is common when the Nazi-like Liberals of Manhattan encounter an identifiable Conservative out in public.
I remember one spring day while waking along a street-fair on a long stretch of Broadway in the upper west side of Manhattan, during the war in Iraq.
A large group of patriotic Americans with flags, and banners in support of the troops, were walking along the sidewalk on one side of the street.
People in the crowds among the street fair started throwing items of food and anything else at the marchers, yelled profanities galore at them, called them Nazis and generally tried to chase them away.
That’s when I joined their impromptu march.
During that period there was a man who wrote op-ed pieces in the New York Sun about that kind of activity, signing himself as Mr X. He lived on the upper west side of Manhattan and many of the people he wrote about were his neighbors. He said it was bad enough but would have been impossible for him and his family if he had authored the articles in his real name.
And people say “it can’t happen here”. It already has.
That's pretty much what I think about guys who blubber about their problems on TV and radio.
I like Beck's message, I just want him to stop with the theatrics.
