Skip to comments.The Right Word: Glenn Beck snarls at Fox
Posted on 10/22/2011 1:35:29 PM PDT by Evil Slayer
Glenn Beck is extremely upset with how he is being treated by former colleagues at Fox News because of comments he made about Occupy Wall Street. Beck appeared on his old friend Bill O'Reilly's program last week (view clip) and expounded upon his theory that the protests are not an organic uprising of disenchanted Americans, but a global movement with Marxist roots led by several revolutionary groups like the Service Employees Union and Working Families. These revolutionary groups are funded by George Soros and the whole thing is being orchestrated by America's most famous community organiser, President Barack Obama. O'Reilly gave Beck's theory the benefit of the doubt, but Fox News ace reporter Geraldo Rivera, was less kind, saying Beck's words were "harsh at best, paranoid or delusional at worst". Beck did not take kindly to Geraldo's insulting dismissal of his theory and accused him, in turn, of being a sheep.
For anyone who's thinking about Occupy Wall Street and saying, "you know, they made a good point," we're going to do a little critical thinking today and one of them is this. When the lion lays down with the lamb, that's when Jesus comes. In the meantime, the lion eats the lamb. Another name for lamb? Sheep! Stop being sheep, America! Otherwise, he will eat you!
Beck is neither sheep nor lamb, and he does not intend to let anyone accuse him of spouting unsubstantiated nonsense that he hopes his gullible audience will accept as fact. Beck had hard evidence to back up his theory: a copy of The Coming Insurrection, a book written by the Invisible Committee, the collective pen-name for a small group of French intellectuals and academics, and a copy of the second edition of the publication du jour, the Occupied Wall Street Journal (pdf).

FOX should stop being such a Shep...er...sheep.
Why they had to taint the 100% accuracy on Becks part by mentioning (wrong every damn time he opens his trap) Jerry Rivers is beyond me however.
Good ol’ commie Guardian. I saw beck on O’reilly, and Geronimo trashing Beck when he wasn’t there to defend himself. I also saw Geronimo (dragging along his unemployable brother) go down to the mob and try to buddy-buddy with them. They chased him away even as he kissed their unwashed asses. He naturally blamed Fox. I have always despised geronimo since his tabloid days in Al Capone’s “vault”, but why Fox continues to employ such a tool is beyond me. Maybe they believe in keeping their enemies close, as they do with Alan “Cryptkeeper” Colmes.
When FOX swerved to the left, they REALLY swerved to the left. The talk radio station that I normally listen to picked up FOX Radio News a number of years ago. Now, I wish they would go back to abc Radio News. FOX Radio News has become an “on the hour” Obama worship service. What a joke.
FOX doesn’t have to like it. He’s absolutely correct.
Funny thing is that one of his guests pointed directly at the problem with FOX on one of the final shows when he said that the only arab voices allowed on FOX were the voices of the muslim brotherhood.
Speaking of Shep...what's wrong with him? He looks ill. We don't watch his show, but I was surfing channels the other day and he was onscreen when I went past Fox. I hadn't seen him in quite a few months. How long has he been looking gaunt and ill.
“Fox news ace reporter Gerry Rivers”.
A$$ reporter maybe. But ace reporter? No way Geronimo.
Nobody is outraged or infuriated. People do what they do. Rivera does what Rivera always does. Beck does what Beck always does. Same for Shepard Smith, Bill O'Reilly and the rest.
FoxNews’ leftward tilt this whole past year was already alienating me, but the final straw was when they let that vile Liz Trotta cheerfully repeat the McGinnis smears against Palin as though they were unvarnished facts, about four weeks ago.
I used to have FoxNews on all the time, as a practical default channel. But after that repugnant incident, I’ve barely watched more than a few snippets, adding up to less than an hour this entire past month. I absolutely loathe CNN with a passion, but I’ve started watching them more, just for a few needed headlines. Just because I’m so intensely disgusted with FoxNews.
I’ve noticed various celebrities getting very thin. I think it’s a fad - separating themselves from the fat America they all hate.
If what you report is true, that's a quite over the top, and easily disproven false "just-do" statement which only a REAL loony-tune would make.
alan colmes is married to Monica Crowley’s sister. Hard to figure. Gotta wonder what it’s like around that Thanksgiving table.
Geraldo jumped the shark when he picked up a tommy-gun and charged into Al Capone’s empty vaults.
Rupert Murdoch must be getting heat from somewhere. Fox is definitely slipping & sliding away.
Roger Ailes where are you??
BECK HAS BEEN RIGHT AND CONTINUES TO BE RIGHT. Most will not entertain the bigger picture for fear of being called a conspiracy theorist and a story teller. These people who are orchestrating this are diabolical. I believe the occupy movement is in its infancy stage and will kick it up a knotch when all the occupy’s in all the major cities are connected. The professionals will be instructed to confront lawenforcement start the fire which will spread to all.
This was a flyer being handed out at the Occupy San Francisco rally last week.
He's part of their being "fair and balanced". They also employ Allan Colmes, Bob Beckel, and quite a few other liberals.
But who knows why they think they must be "fair and balanced"?
