Tearful Glenn Beck Describes How He And His Family Were Attacked In New York Park
Mediaite.com ^ | 06/28/11 | Jon Bershad

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 Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in New York’s 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 there’s 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 didn’t name the website although he clearly described this post) for posting pictures of his family.

Where's Obama to demand "civility" again?? Oh that's right, that only applies to conservatives when he wants to tie them, falsely, to a left wing lunatic attacking a Congresswoman, not the Brown Shirts that follow him and his sick party. The media has to accept responsibility for having incited people against Beck, ignorantly, and what that may lead to. Afterall, they're the ones who accused Sarah Palin and the right of inciting the leftist Jared Loughner. Well they need to live by their own standards and recognize how they've incited people against conservatives. This kind of ugliness belongs in North Korea, not America. We do not use violence against those with whom we disagree. Imagine as we prepare to celebrate our nation's founding and freedoms, some liberal tyrannt attacks a man for merely using his free speech rights we all enjoy. The intolerant left is as unAmerican a group a people as we can possibly conceive of. If they are so hateful of free speech and political dissent, why don't they up and move to North Korea where they'll be bothered by neither. As for Mr. Beck I suggest he move his show out of this hate-filled leftist city and state and to a nice tolerant red state instead.

Yawn.

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.

I'll get flamed for this but I don't care.

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

The 2004 Republican convention in NYC prompted a huge demonstration such as I have never seen. There were allegedly 40,000 demonstrators filling the streets of New York for 4 hours. This was shown in its entirety on C-Span. One of the participants who was interviewed said with great outrage that he could not believe that the Republicans would come to “HIS” city. Mental cases every one.

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.

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.

The chick who kicked the wine on Glenn's wife is claiming "accident" but Twitter captured an interesting comment from her before she locked down her account and made it private.

You can see the retweet in Jim Treacher's timeline:

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?

And if you asked any of these nutballs to describe exactly why they hate Beck, you'd get either blank stares or incoherent ranting in return. They'd say stuff like "...uh...uh....Fox Lies!!!" .....and "well, he, uh, is against the poor! (without being able to back up that allegation, of course). ....and "he's pro-war!!" (which really proves they never watch him). Most libs don't know why they hate conservatives; they just know they do. It's all emotion, driving by the propaganda which they swallow whole.

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.

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

Yeah, it's one thing seeing him shed a tear once every blue moon when talking about the greatness of our country. No real problem with that. But weeping about something like this is just lame. He needs a meeting with Don Corleone.

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!

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.

I don't want them crying about it either. However, I don't get hundreds of death threats a day either, so I don't know how I'd deal with it if I saw the work I was doing to expose the nut jobs in our government was putting my family in jeopardy. Funny though, a website "for the media" run by a lib like Dan Abrams chooses to emphasize the tearful part for the article rather than just mention what happened. I suspect it's done simply to marginalize Beck.

If you've got something to say... say it.

I think your comment is gay.

Relax CC. I'm a fan of Beck. Watch him regularly. And I said "once in blue moon" ....which obviously means that I don't think he does it every day. But occasionally he does it and I'm thinking "why is he crying about that? That's all. No need to get all emotional.

“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.
