Skip to comments.The Success of the Beck Rally
Posted on 08/31/2010 6:59:43 AM PDT by MarkLevinFan
I love watching Glenn Beck on TV.
Day winding down, he makes so many good points. As someone who has spent a lifetime studying history, been there in government and politics, I find it great to watch Becks particular insistence on educating Americans about real history that has gone missing. Having long ago learned first hand the progressive-race connection, for example, by having lived for a couple years in Woodrow Wilsons hometown, I am stunned to see someone have the wit and the chops to detail this particularly disturbing history of Americas progressive president on popular television.
So I watched the rally on C-SPAN.
And you know what? (He says gently )
I was elated and concerned.

This article seems to be more about Mark Levin than Glenn Beck.
Its to be expected. They’re media people which means they both have big honkin egos.
Successful Beck is still Beck!
And that’s missing a lot...
After reading his piece, I think that the muddle is in Jeffery Lord’s mind. He must not watch Glenn as much as he claims, or else he is really dense.
Very good article by Jeffrey Lord. Thanks for posting.
Re Beck Bashes The South!
Why I Don’t Trvst Glenn Beck...
Devvy...on the recent GB Rally...
I think we can all agree that the Beck rally in DC on Saturday has put “the fear of God” and “the fear of We The People waking up” into every politician in this nation. Politicians that don’t realize the reality of what happened this past Saturday in DC do so because of their arrogance.
I feel that Beck’s call for us to return to our founding principles highlights the morale decay that is in 98% of the politicians in this country. These arrogant, power-hungry, amoral politicians have sold their souls to Satan. They have sought to destroy our country and to steal our freedom because of their own greed. These Elitist politicians are consumed by their quest for political power at any cost.
May these soulless, Godless, anti-American politicians be thrown out in November and the rest sent home in disgrace in 2012. You know all their names; keep a list and may they be disgraced for eternity.
You could make the claim Lincoln did too in a way..lol
Good points to remember - including those with historical markers.
Did you read the article on Best of the Web, “Oikophobia”? That’s what Obama and Hillary are about, open borders, extermination of all nationalism, national history and culture. Read it, it’s a very important article. I was thinking about it last night as we watched Hillary condemning Arizona in Ecuador, and reporting Arizona to the UN human rights commission for wanting to enforce our borders and our laws. The left wants to create a One America, similar to the European Union.
Oikophobia is the opposite of xenophobia, it mean hatred or fear of ones own culture.
Behave now, in Beck’s world up is down and MLK was actually an equivalent of Magnus you know.
Nuts but many here lap it up.
No one bothers to read what King actually said or wrote....beyond the flowery Obama like prose that appeals to everyone...but which was not originally his anyhow.
Becks’ rally is a feminine minded version of Promise Keepers. Basically in terms telling a bunch of white women how good they are for loving MLK (he of FBI tape fame). Beck will flame out once the media goes 24/7 with the racist canard and Becks female following gets tired of playing Miss Jellaby and getting no feel good rhetoric except from Beck.
And, where is Beck on Truthrs, Birthers, FEMA Camps, etc, etc.
Not only does he disagree on these issues, ( or does he in fact)he actually actively campaigns against Patriots who question these authentic issues...why?...his masters at FauxNoose (and/or) elsewhere) command him to?
thank God for another reasonable voice...Beck is like Oprah for what culture war types who can’t handle the left anymore...which is exactly what Beck is....he only stopped being a liberal after aged 40...
i cannot believe how freepers fall for Beck’s myths and hucksterism
sure Beck says a few things right...I’ve got two of his books myself
but his race junk is pandering just the same and very very historically inaccurate on some key points especially about King
anyone who thinks the US experience has to be always viewed through the prism of race is wrong and that excuse is just cover for blaming whitey
King, Abernathy, John Lewis, Bond, Andrew Young, Jesse, and so forth...the only one from that era who resists that is Roy Innis
You know all their names; keep a list and may they be disgraced for eternity.
Yes, they only deserve the >very worst<.

I’m surprised by very little these days, but it is truly amazing the amount of negative commentary all over the net from people who have no clue what the rally was about, why people went and what actually happened there.
The British philosopher Roger Scruton has coined a term to describe this attitude: oikophobia. Xenophobia is fear of the alien; oikophobia is fear of the familiar: "the disposition, in any conflict, to side with 'them' against 'us', and the felt need to denigrate the customs, culture and institutions that are identifiably 'ours.' " What a perfect description of the pro-mosque left.
...This cannot be reconciled with the elitist notion that most men are economically insecure bitter clinging intolerant bigots who need to be governed by an educated elite. Marxism Lite is not only false; it is, according to the American creed, self-evidently false. That is why the liberal elite finds Americans revolting.
This article was, for me, one of the most enlightening articles that I have read in a long time. The full importance didn't sink in until I saw the film clip, last night, of Hillary condemning Arizona for human rights violations. The liberal elite and their academics want an open borders One America, similar to the European Union. They see themselves as the brightest, most enlightened people on Earth, who will rule over the profit seeking workers. It struck me that the these so-called thinkers, the pseudo-intellectuals are much like the babies of the wealthy slave owners, sucking at the teat of the wet nurse slave, all the while dreaming of slave ownership.
Beck is pro gay marriage too...more or less.
A Hippie of the Right.
What to expect from someone who didn’t discover slightly conservative libertarianism till after aged 40
He will prove to be an undoing...
I don’t think Beck is all bad...yet.
And the enemy of my enemy is my...friend(?)
I listened to Beck years ago, on the radio mornings (Fla), so I have some...questions re this guy...but... wait-n-see...
They exist to be martyred for their feel good delusions and the evil Left will oblige. Of course memories are short and we have been down this road before with some praying outfit called “Promise Keepers” which the media noticed was nearly all white. The PKs were attacked as “racist” the PK went into “inclusive” mode and within weeks disintergrated.
The Beck MLK cult might last longer because he has provided some insulation from the race card right off the bat, but the heydays of white women busy bodies to the rescue are long gone and Beck cannot revive them anymore than Obama can revive a debt saturated economy with Communism.
I liked him but found him odd on the radio.
Then on TV he was ok till he started acting like South bashers here.
Beck simply is dishonest in his portrayal of history to suit himself at times...he is truthful more than not don’t get me wrong but he just plays like a revival preacher a bit skirting inconvenient truths
I’m sorry the Tea party has latched onto him or vice versa.
I bought his Common Sense and Arguing with Idiots...they are ok but simplified like Cliff Notes which is how he views his version of history
He is just plain wrong on King...period.
And he conveniently ignores how most conservatives of the day actually viewed the Civil Rights activists he so adores now...folks like Magnus and Goldwater and WFB etc
His bashing of Wilson is appropriate but his treatment of Teddy and to a lesser degree Taft is weird and he worships the Radical GOP of the 1860s...who were sorta responsible to some degree with the Leviathan we live with today
this is where he sounds like some freepers
they can have him
IMO, it seems the difference in Beck of yesteryear’s radio and Beck of FauxToday is simply that he was successful in getting recruited by Faux and they, of course, placed some restrictions on him for their own purposes—these restrictions were no problem to beck, apparently.
I calls ‘em as I sees ‘em...
This article seems to be more about Mark Levin than Glenn Beck.
Are not Beck, Levin, Hannity, Rush etc. each a child of God?
I really detest this entire kind of anal exam can’t a person just speak from their convictions what is in their heart and mind without all this assigning motives or short comings that is being subjected into the event!
I pray someday we can divorce ourselves from the entire tactic that the Left aka Progressive use in their scorch earth warfare.
If we want to be on the Lord side than should we not use the Lords tools not the world way!
The Lord did not use a cookie cutter he made all of us different for a reason so each brings to the table something that the children will be able to recognized that relates to them.
I think this is a blessing in safty because than we are not all in a lock step but able to understand by seeking common ground according to the principles!
Did you read the article?
I see the attack trolls and CINO’s are out in force today. You know you’re over the target when the flak starts bouncing off the walls in here. He’s struck a national chord, and I’m personally glad this discussion is happening.....if only Libs would DISCUSS, rather than resorting to their sad personal attacks.
Levin does not like Beck, because the inner political cr@p going on at FOX, threatens his friend Hannity, who I also like.
I love Levin and listen to him every day, but he needs to figure out that Beck is one of the good guys.
It is obvious that Hannity and Beck are not friendly, he has yet to mention the name Beck on his show, and even last night when he had Palin on the show, not one word was mentioned of the Rally, the biggest story of the month.
Draw whatever conclusion you care to from that.
Draw whatever conclusion you care to from that.
When Mark Levin's book, Liberty & Tyranny, was at the top of the NY Times best seller's list for many weeks, how often did Beck mention it? Draw whatever conclusion you care to from that.
Yes but I have been reading and listening to comments for several days now if nothing when is man going to nurture his better half that has been missing for decades now.
I am tired of listening to people who only can rail it is time to let go and let God edit!
The weapon in this war is to convert people to Love one another.
I did not say not to defend but the vehicle being used today is obsolete the power is coming from higher forces (God & angels) and it is about time each learn the language which is in the written pages of their scriptures!
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
15 ¶ Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the LORD hath spoken.
16 Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.
17 But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the LORDs flock is carried away captive.
18 Say unto the king and to the queen, Humble yourselves, sit down: for your principalities shall come down, even the crown of your glory.
19 The cities of the south shall be shut up, and none shall open them: Judah shall be carried away captive all of it, it shall be wholly carried away captive
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
After further consideration Beck is simply a tool of the GOP for at least this election cycle. White women are the swing vote, and Beck’s cult exists to capture them for the GOP. The Left is not very “nice” these days since their “nice” attractive white women front pieces are largely hidden and people who remind the “nice” women of the people who terrorized their parents neighborhoods and lives are front and center.
He is ambivalent on the subject, big difference, but he certainly doesn't approve the practice.
What do the critics of Beck on this forum hope to achieve?
I am sure Mitch McConnel could have drawn the same crowd, but I have no clue what he would have said. Do you?
Savage was my favorite of all the talk show hosts before (despite occasional "off his meds" rants), but I respect him even more now.
The conservative movement needs this type of unity to succeed, not petty two-bit personality rivalries.
Beck and Hannity are scrapping for the same audience, white women who want to feel good about themselves, so of course there is a bit of rivalry. Beck is winning that contest, Sean still leading with lonely Long Island houswives though.
I have hear Beck mention Mark book a few times..
Beck has been accused of by Mark for plagiarizing Rush Thanksgiving story or Mark stuff when all that Beck has learn came from Cleon Skousen who wrote his stuff in the 1980s.
The 5000 year leap : Principles of Freedom inspired by our Founding Fathers
The 5000 Year Leap
I like Mark but I also have a hard time when he shows that weakness in him of pride it is not of the Lord it comes from the world there is abundance for all in the Lords kingdom if Mark would only see that he has so many wonder ways about him!
After all it is very clear there was the 3 Musketeers (Levin Hannity Rush)and no room that there might be a magnificent 7, 8 or 9 etc.
Levin and Hannity treated it like a click not good to let pride get in the way or have hurt feeling that someone is # 3 when that was supposed to be you place or #2 when it seem Beck is catching up to Hannity etc.
In our own world in life we had those dreams deflated when similar things happen but did we not choose to be in a competitive position?
Rush has always been very gracious!
There is no reason people can’t listen to both. They have separate time slots. At one time, I found Hannity to be more educational and Beck to be more entertaining. But now, I’d have to say that has reversed or, at least, Beck has become more serious and educational lately.
Actually, Glenn has opined (and I agree with the take) that McCain would have been worse because we would have all this crud and thensome provided by a GOP president, supposedly from the right -- the enormous TEA party frustrations/movement, these counter-protests, etc., would not be occurring (yet), too many would be in the *We gotta support our guy* section.
weird? TR was a progressive. Beck rails against all progressives and more and more I agree with him. McCain is a self-professed TR Republican and he IS a progressive, too... I think it would be best to call a spade a spade and you are either a conservative or a progressive and forget the D and R stuff. You never miss an opportunity to bash Beck, BTW....
McCain would have signed McCaincare, and it would not have taken as long or had near the scrutiny paid it by many Americans that the fruad that did pass got.
