Skip to comments.Beck's Betrayal (Vanity)
Posted on 01/21/2014 8:19:56 PM PST by Viennacon
I had previously authored a vanity piece on this topic, hoping that I might have been overreacting or misinterpreting Glenn, but the recent antics are the final nail in the coffin.
Glenn Beck has actually moved closer to Robert Sarvis' politics than those of any conservative I know. Just wait till he starts pushing eco-crap.
No, better to just load up a compilation of Alex Jones and Michael Savage's greatest hits. That will essentially give you Glenn Beck, minus the left wing turn. I'd post links to the content I refer to, but I wouldn't want to drive more traffic to him. It's easily locatable if needed.
And just so I don't get accused of being a blog pimp by Humblegunner, I have included the post in its entirety here, so people know that this guy's 'project' has been taken over by collaborators.

But conservatives can now also regard this man as a traitor.
Ever since Glenn hired staff including faux conservatives and also fraudulent libertarians, like S.E. Cupp and Will Cain, he has behaved erratically, lurching from one left wing issue to another. Most recently, a particularly embarrassing incident involving an on air love note to Melissa Harris-Perry, decrying those who wanted her fired for making a racial punchline of former presidential candidate Mitt Romney's adopted grandson. Beck defended Perry, who he thought was 'not a bad person'.
For those of you who are unaware, Melissa Harris-Perry has a long record of being an avowed Stalinist, race hustler, infanticide advocate, as well as famously stating she wanted the state to confiscate children from their parents.
But this is not where Glenn went off the deep end. No, that has come in Glenn's most recent delusional rantings. And no, you won't have to tune in next week and buy my Ovaltine to find out the details. Glenn Beck has done an about-face and is now full-steam ahead in support of the homosexual agenda. In the wake of Russia's sensible and noble decision to pass legislation protecting children from sexual predators and homosexual propagandists, Beck has launched into a hysterical tailspin on the axis of comments made by a Russian T.V. actor. According to Glenn, because an actor said he wanted to kill homosexuals, Russia is now a "hetero-fascist" state. Would Glenn ever used the word "homo-fascist"? We think not.
It got even more painful, as Glenn then declared he would "stand with GLAAD on this issue". So in the wake of GLAAD attempting to destroy Phil Robertson for speaking the Biblical truth about sodomy (a fight they eventually lost in a humiliating defeat), Beck has declared his allegiance to an organization whose stated goal is to protect homosexuals and transgender individuals from 'defamation', mainly in media. But Glenn is not naive. He knows exactly what GLAAD is. He knows exactly what the sordid history of the 'gay rights' movement is all about. He knows exactly which figures began the movement and why they did it. After all, Glenn is something of a history buff.
GLAAD is one of many CPUSA (Communist Party of the United States) front groups. As outlined in 'The Naked Communist' (1958) published by FBI agent, W. Cleon Skousen, communist infiltrators and collaborators in the United States had a set of goals, forty five, give or take. Many were obvious goals for blossoming radicals loyal to the Soviet Union, things such as the disintegration of the communist investigation panels set up by Congress, which was achieved after the destruction of Senator Joe McCarthy. Others however had a much more sinister tone and centered around a theory that came out of the radical social Marxism think-tank, 'The Frankfurt School'. Their idea was outlined by one of the founders, Willi Munzenberg.
We need to organize the intellectuals and use them to make Western civilization stink. Only then, after they have corrupted all its values and made life impossible, can we impose the dictatorship of the proletariat.
One of the goals within this broader strategy was the promotion of degeneracy, promiscuity, and homosexuality. The entire 'gay rights' movement, much like the feminist movement, was an elaborate scam engineered by Marxian loyalists in the United States. The spider's web of advocacy organizations all have their roots in the Mattachine Society, whose founders were card-carrying members of none other than CPUSA.
So, back to Glenn Beck. He is not an ignorant man. He's well aware of the links that connect ACORN and the SEIU to the old 'Students for a Democratic Society' (SDS), as well as their links to CPUSA, and has outlined this on his blackboard many times. It seems inexplicable that Beck would be unaware of the connection here to the Mattachine Society. The only explanation is that he does know, and is selectively ignoring it.
The "stand with GLAAD" bull$hit might have been permissible, a moment of madness perhaps. But not even a month later and Glenn is pounding this drum again. He is attacking the president of Russia over the homosexual propaganda law once more, this time with the backdrop of the Sochi Winter Olympics and the ambush interview conducted by left wing reporter, George Stephanopoulos. Beck concludes the segment by railing against anyone who is in his words "anti-gay", saying they have no place as his fans. I hope his religious listeners heard that one. I can't help but be reminded of Andrew Cuomo. Now we know. We're not welcome in New York, nor anywhere within a five mile radius of Beck's studio of get-rich-quick schemes.
CPUSA would be proud of Glenn. From one of the right's media figureheads, to a sellout agenda whore. You see, its not enough for them just to have the ardent leftists on board. They need to pick off the right's people too, and Beck is one of the first to fall to his knees and declare, "I've always loved Big Brother."
There has been a widespread unrest and discomfort with this man across the conservative internet bastions, and I have come to understand why. One of us? Hell no he's not.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I never really did ‘get’ Glenn Beck. Half the time he seemed to be in perfect sync with most conservatives, and the other half of the time he seemed to be in a place I couldn’t quite grok.
I never have been able to make heads or tails of the guy.
Well, its pretty damn clear now which way the wind blows over there at Beck HQ. S.E. Cupp was the first red flag. WorldNetDaily blew that whistle.
“Ever since Glenn hired staff including faux conservatives and also fraudulent libertarians, like S.E. Cupp and Will Cain, he has behaved erratically, lurching from one left wing issue to another.”
Correction: Glenn Beck has ALWAYS been erratic. It is his nature.
“So, back to Glenn Beck. He is not an ignorant man.”
Yes, he is.
I like Glenn Beck. He sometimes gets on my nerves but I find his show amusing and often learn a few tidbits from it. But he has always been erratic. And he has always been quite ignorant on a number of topics. He is also - often - so darn sure he is right when in reality he is wrong. He is also a shameless huckster who promises big reveals and then comes up empty.
And he’s a Mormon.
He still does more good than harm.
Either Glenn Beck hasn’t learned that when you set out to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one or he doesn’t care.
I have to wonder if steadfastly holds any sound principles at all.
It’s reached new heights with this though. He’s never been this off the rails on an issue central to the left’s agenda.
He may be ignorant on some topics, but on history and the intricacies of left wing connections (ala Van Jones), he’s smart.
From what I can tell, Beck has always been somewhat of a loose cannon. Unlike Rush, Sean, or even O'Reilly, I've never been able to pin down what the guy really stands for. He's kind of all over the place.
Could Betsy Morgan have anything to do with it?
“I am thrilled to be leading The Blaze at this unprecedented time, Morgan said. Mercury Radio Arts is a powerful multimedia brand with a great business upside. Im looking forward to expanding the team and developing businesses around topical content in all areas that engage audiences and drive a healthy national debate.
“Glenn Beck to relaunch The Blaze as global libertarian network”
Hasn’t Beck relaunched a couple of times now?
It has been obvious for years that Glenn Beck is:
1. a drug addict
2. mentally ill
4. an enemy of actual conservatives and conservatism
3. a shill for Mormonism and other crackpot theories
To have someone pretend like they just discovered these things recently strains credibility.
Here’s an idea. Turn off the radio.
I had respected him for a while although he wasn’t my taste for radio and such, because he was saying things that other hosts were steering clear of, about the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama’s history. I was wrong.
But as you can tell just from this site alone, he still retains people who think he’s on our side. In the run-up to crucial elections, if Beck is a sleeper enemy(and I think he is), people should be informed of it.
Well, if he’s trying to corner the libertarian market, he’s going to have some stiff competition. That circuit is pretty well populated.
I don’t know Morgan. I think this real leftward slide began a couple of years ago as Glenn met new people.
That’s why I’d long been rather wary of Beck. He was more right than wrong during his FoxNews days. But his erratic, emotional, and ever-meandering “search for the truth” always gave off warning signals to me. People with strong conservative beliefs and principles are innately inclined towards stoic confidence and discipline. Beck was the opposite. I liked Beck, but I always expected he’d eventually go off in bizarre (liberal) directions.
Personally, I turned him off the moment he started expressing favor towards homo marriage, over a year ago. That was the indication to me that he reached that certain point I’d been expecting. Haven’t really listened to anything he’s said since then, other than a few occasional quotes and tv-snippets. When he crossed that line, I no longer cared what he had to say about anything.
Oh, for crying out loud. Former Huffington Compost? Yeah, he’s done. Might as well have hired Bill Ayers to do the catering
Well stated. That's precisely what always turned me off about Beck. He always seemed to be struggling to find his way. Never completely sure of himself, or what's right and wrong. A man baffled by worldly complexity, rather than comfortable within the clear-cut simplicities of core conservative values and reason.
Apparently, he's still struggling to figure it all out.
And some libertarians do hold that position. You’re right that this is an obvious libertarian position, but as others have pointed out, left wing plants infiltrated the official Libertarian Party long ago, with the goal in mind of kneecapping conservatives.
See Montana senate race, 2012.
Relaunch: (code for) a desperate bid to stabilize, after having stumbled in a disastrous roll-out of a product, brand, or service.
I remember his radio show. It was completely unlistenable. There were like three people always talking simultaneously and cracking inside jokes with each other. Complete cacophony.
Last week Beck had a two ladies on. One was from a group that petitioned outside abortion clinics. The other was a mother who had went there to have an abortion who didn't because of those outside offering alternatives. Because of their actions, two people were saved. The woman who was going to have an abortion was pregnant with twins.
Who's perfect? Who thinks exactly like us? No one, that's who. For all his faults, Mr. Beck has done way more good than harm - way more! I'm with him to the end. Until the Almighty himself steps in to stop the slaughter of the innocents (55 million since '73 in America alone) and stops the rest of the abominations taking place here and around the world. Because that's ultimately who it will take, even though we must continue to fight the good fight every day. That's what Beck is trying to do, however many missteps he takes in the process.
I DO NOT agree with Beck on a number of issues, but I DO on enough to keep supporting him. No one else has the balls to face what he has had to face in the last few years, or to present the side of innocents who themselves cannot, and for all the world to see.
In a way, posts like this are as counter productive to the cause of righteousness as Beck's support of abominations that we know from scripture the Almighty detests. When the time comes those will answer for their inequities. In the meantime we are commanded to love and serve each other and to spread the truth to ALL.
I'm not saying what you had to say didn't need saying. I'm saying let's just keep our perspective of the bigger picture.
People don’t seem to realize that the Mormons have switched gears on homosexual issues and their high ranking devotees who can influence the public, have their duties.
The libertarian party is the same as it has always been, pro-abortion, pro-gay, open borders, drugs, drugs, drugs, it has never changed.
He has hired the woman who ran the communist outfit, Huffington Post, to run his operation. That on top of this... on top of the Perry thing.
I mean, the man doesn’t have principles. He was against this agenda just a few years ago. Now he’s for it! How is that different to Obama?
That is the libertarian party position, they do represent libertarian.
It is the usual stupid libertarian stuff, that ignores reality, to advance the left.
""1.3 Personal Relationships
Sexual orientation, preference, gender, or gender identity should have no impact on the government's treatment of individuals, such as in current marriage, child custody, adoption, immigration or military service laws. Government does not have the authority to define, license or restrict personal relationships. Consenting adults should be free to choose their own sexual practices and personal relationships.""
I’m never sure which saran wrap or beverage Glenn will be selling.
Sorry, but if you don’t already know how Glenn Beck is different from Obama, probably nothing I can say tonight is going to enlighten you.
How is Glenn’s changed view on the homosexual agenda different to Obama’s? Is it not exactly the same crap?
He’s also the biggest crybaby since John Boehner - plus being a nutty hypochondriac. There’s an embarrassing you tube video of him crying after a little visit to the emergency room. As I recall, he did the video wrapped in what look like a security blanket.
I'm pretty sure O was and probably still is involved in homosexual relations. I'm pretty sure Beck isn't. I don't understand why Beck felt he needed to call attention to the words of the actor in Russia or why he befriends atheists. Just because I don't understand doesn't mean he doesn't have his reasons. Those reasons are between himself and the Almighty. I see enough good fruit to support his organization. Matter of fact, he's one of only a few in the entire nation who believe and support many of the same causes as most of us conservatives. That said, he's certainly not perfect. Who is???
this goest to the lefts concept of postive and negtive right..
The libertarian position rule 1.3 is a classic libertarian negative right statement, government keep it nose out of this thing.
But Marriage is bit of positive right, the government gives you something, they license you and you get some privilege with that license
A libertarian should be for shrinking or eliminating a so called positive right not expanding a government positive right grant of privilege
Then there aren’t grounds to criticize RINOS at all. Linda Graham has been good on some issues in the senate. I’d still call him a walking disaster because he’s not a conservative.
If Glenn wants to be a leftist on certain issues, fine. I don’t have a problem with that. But this was a blunt, Cuomo-esque attack on conservatives that went beyond and outside the whole Russia controversy. As usual the typical “anti-gay” crap was there, as if it came from Tammy Baldwin talking points.
And the Harris-Perry thing is indefensible. This woman has said the most vile things about conservatives... yet Glenn stands with her!
There are conservative pundits who have conceded defeat and joined the left on this issue, but many of them have the grace not to attack and smear those of us who don’t want to hand our kids over to NAMBLA. That’s what pissed me off.
Saw the video. Pajama boy?
Whew.... So after reading all that all I get is a screed about yadda yadda gay rights in Russia. Frickin A... What a disappointment. Really folks? With all the disfunction we have in Russia and THAT is what you pick to splash on my grandmas windows? Thanks a lot asshole.
Beck is the one who made it his pet issue. I’m just sick of him peddling this BS while pretending to be a conservative.
Glenn Beck admitted to mental issues, I am not sure why people are so shocked. He was never really all that stable.
I guess he has come a long way since his “Don’t make me shoot this cat” kind of antics on the radio.
I wonder how many subscribers they lost with his “stand with GLAAD”?
Yes! Remember when Glenn was going blind? It was like reading a Little Orphan Annie comic strip.
I guess I missed that. What was Beck's stance on GLAAD?
On gay issues, like Russia, Glenn Beck said he will “stand with GLAAD”
It pisses me off too. I don't know why he felt he should say anything at all in her favor, but he did. He obviously has his reasons. Perhaps it was an attempt to extend an olive branch to the left in some strategic way - I really don't know.
All I know is what I have seen him accomplish over the last few years has been positive, even though I don't always agree with his methods, words, or even his deeds on occasion. I canceled my subscription three times, but in it for the long haul now.
That one interview with the woman who had a change of heart about having an abortion more than made up for all of the times he has pissed me off.
Seriously? Gads. I guess he really has gone full libtardarian.
Note to Glenn: even though you are caving around the edges I still think you will come to your senses one day, also THEY still hate you so this little cave in isn't buying you any favor with those miscreants on the left. Ms Cupp is nice to look at but a lib on almost EVERY social issue.
But later on he just got to be all over the map and emotional to a degree I found it hard to listen. So stopped and haven't gone back. I never did learn why he left Fox, but I suspect he has some medical issues that when he goes off his meds he may very well be difficult to work with. I think he mentioned he was bi-polar or something to that affect.
