Glenn Beck in preacher mode..... I turned the radio off on the radio messiah
self | April 28th | self and Glenn Beck

Posted on 04/29/2014 8:25:04 AM PDT by dennisw

My beef is common enough. Overall I like what Glenn Beck has to say. But when we starts preaching and a straining emphatic preaching type voice. He does this with a number of topics so this is when I go -click-- I am out. At times he gets weepy as if he thinks he is a messiah of some kind

I did not like what he said about Bundy either

I very much liked his book. I tried to listen to him on the radio afterward but he and his sidekick were just horribly annoying.

He's talking about MLK again.

He needs to be talking about Jonathan Mayhew.

GB admitted that he F-ed-up while at Fox..but I think he let his real nature through. Yes he’s annoying..but I like his passion, like Hannity..but if only it could be channeled to calmly.

Yes, when he said what he said about Bundy, I concluded that he had no stomach for a fight that may come and was therefore unworthy of my attention. I tuned him out forever.

I used to watch his teevee show years ago. Not because I liked it, just figured since he was trying to be Howard Beale, maybe beck’s producers would deal with him same way Beale’s did once his ratings started dropping.

I gave up on Beck when he started the practice of hyping some super sensational story all week and promising the details next Monday and then when Monday rolled around the “story” turned out to be an absolute nothing burger. I couldn’t trust him anymore after he started playing that game.

Agreed. My wife can't stand Mark Levin's voice. But I listen to both. I tune out Beck when he is on a silly tangent.

I like Beck well enough. When he gets preachy and tearful, I switch over to Laura Ingram or I switch over to NPR to let Diane Rehm piss me off for a while. Frankly, I really just miss Boortz.

There really is only Levin.

very sadly Rush doesn’t seem to say anything of interest or importance these days.

It’s just usually Apple, or his books, or what ever other blah, blah, blah.

But anything about our communist tyrant government? Nope.

“My wife can’t stand Mark Levin’s voice.”

I’ve had friends say the same thing, and I can see where they’re coming from, but there’s noone on radio or in print who i agree with more. I guess I’ve gotten used to it. He’s the worst natural radio guy of any of the big names(worst voice, least charm), but he’s the smartest and the most on point.

I stopped listening years ago when he continues to do this type of crap....”breaking big news is coming when I drop the details on this there will be major changes for our nation. It will hit to the core of corrupt politicians”

Next day same message but a little more oh my this is big... Too big to announce without getting everything right. We can’t let our detractors pick up on any mistakes on what we are releasing.”

Rinse repeat. Them either nothing gets announced our something stupid comes out like a taking America back campaign... Tell your neighbors.

He’s a modern day PT Barnum.

Beck sucks. Agreed.

When he's right, he's very, very right. But it's not all that often.

And I stopped listening because I couldn't take the hyperbole. "This is the MOST awesome, news-breaking, announcement that will change your life FOREVER...coming up at the top of the hour! Don't miss it!!" ... and it would turn out to be a new station carrying his show in Elbow, North Dakota, or something.

He's little more than a circus huckster. A conservative one ... but a huckster none the less.

That is the same reason I quit watching/listening to him about the time he left FoxNews.

For me it’s him and Alex Jones. Levin can be a bit too short on some callers, and Jones sometimes goes too fast, but I get a better product from them than the rest.

Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, etc, are all designed to keep us marching like good little slaves in the right/left republican/democrat paradigm. As long as we stay in that political box they have achieved the purposes of the power structure in this country.

True, dat! I like Rush's wit and humor, can't stand Hannity, But Levin is brilliant. If I can't listen live I always catch his podcast.

Yes, a false prophet that thinks he's the messiah. Got tired of his lyin' and cryin' long ago. Like Hannity he's right sometimes but it's not worth wading thru all of the crap. Hey,even a blind squirrel finds a nut.

After both threw Mr Bundy under the bus I'm done with both phonies.

I miss Quinn and Rose.

That is exactly my reaction. He has no stomach for the fight. He’d said before that when the time came he hoped he’d have the courage not to run and hide, but I know his true colors. He’s a moral coward. I’ll never listen to him again.

Turned Beck off because of comments he made about Bundy. I have no intentions of turning him on again.

Pretty much. Although I'm inclined to feel kinder to Rush after learning more about cochlear implants.

They all stink. The real shows (Jerry Hughes, Stan Major, Chuck Harder) were defanged by Clinton in the mid nineties.

“Breitbart called him a false prophet.”

Breitbart was right. Beck is dangerous. I don’t know if he’s just a loon with a messianic complex or a stalking horse for the Progressive police state. Either way he’s bad news.

The MLK/Gandhi stuff is very deliberate, and repeated for a reason. They’re always put in the same class as Jesus of Nazareth. The intent is to minimize Christ, to reduce him to a mere “great” figure.

I listen to Beck, but I never forget that I’m listening to a very powerful mormon. I take the useful information that The Blaze provides and discard everything else.

I tuned in for three minutes today. He referred to himself as a farmer. Then, he said a psuedo farmer.

He's got himself set up nicely for the collapse. (or so he thinks) He doesn't need us anymore.
