Posted on 05/05/2010 7:40:07 AM PDT by rdb3
In a visually compelling format Glenn Beck heaped justified ridicule on one of the many false precepts of progressivism, to wit, that it is somehow unfair that some people have more money than others.
To do this, Beck gave President Obama (and his audience) the silent treatment on his TV show. (video link)
As a video clip showed the president saying
Were not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success thats fairly earned. I mean I do think at a certain point youve made enough money.
Beck said nothing.
He went over to his chalkboard and began filling in how much money Obamas friends and cronies have:
George Soros: $14 billion.
Oprah Winfrey: $245 million [that sounds really low for Oprah -MV].
Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton: $35 million.
Al Gore: $100 million (estimated).
Jeff Immelt: $5.1 million (a year).
Andy Stern: $306,000 (a year).
Franklin Raines: $65.3 million.
John Edwards: $30 million.
Michael Moore: $70 million [or so it appears -- it's hard to see the chalk from a long view on the TV screen -MV].
Throughout the segment Obamas voice saying, I do think at a certain point youve made enough money plays over and over again.
At the end Beck writes on a separate chalkboard
Why dont you ask your friends to set the example on how much is too much?
Let the first left-winger who is willing to draw a line between unacceptably high levels of wealth and acceptable levels of wealth donate his or her fortune to help reduce the national debt.
Truly, truly Brilliant!
“and some old Disc Jockeys shall lead them...”
I saw that program and it is why I love this guy. Keep calling the hypocritical bastards out Glenn.
Wondering if this segment is on youtube. Dang...don’t know how to word that search.
Beck generally is.
Over three minutes of silence. It was brilliantly done.
The creativity for that show is the best in the business.
Easy, if the other guy has more, then that is too much.
It’s simple: first you divide the world into those that produce something useful and those who don’t. Second, take all the wealth generated by those who produce....
Watch it here.
He missed a zero. She is worth $2.45 Billion.
Sometimes that Beck guy can be really effective.
Yesterday’s show is not on there or it’s buried...(there’s alot of his shows on there!)
Thank you both!
Ha! I did that with my idiot millionaire cousin a couple of years ago.
“If you are SO concerned about the ‘poor people’ you say bush and the government are screwing over why don’t you just give more of YOUR money to the IRS? There’s no rule that says you can’t give more to the government than what the IRS says you owe. Come on! Set the example!”
His $4 million mansion is none too shabby:
