Glenn Beck: Ron Paul backers threatened my life
WND ^

Posted on 01/19/2012 5:44:52 PM PST by mnehring

Media giant Glenn Beck says some supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul have threatened his life.

The claim came during Beck’s TV show Tuesday night, as he was analyzing Paul’s political stances and the Texas congressman’s performance in Monday night’s debate in South Carolina.

“I’m the one that sticks up for Ron Paul on the radio all the time and in meetings. Not all of them are like this,” Beck said. “Just a few have threatened my life, run me off the road. We get threats from Ron Paul supporters all the time. That’s a problem. Don’t be a zealot. You are just as bad – if not worse – than the Occupy Wall Street people. And I don’t know if you’ve seen any shows I’ve done on those people. They’re bad!”

Only one word can describe them.

“Rabid”

And I say that as a man who finds at least some agreement with Ron Paul on most issues.

Ron alterPaul supporters are as nuts as he is.
Beck is a cry baby.
Nothing left to be said.

Paul kooks hate Beck because he stands for Israel and against Extremist terrorists. Beck likes some of Paul’s stances on economy, I gather.

Ratings must be down. I cancelled my membership and I don’t say things like, “Listen to Glenn Beck!” anymore.

Glen Beck, the Bill O’Reily of radio. Actually, worse than BOR. At least BOR doesn't need a sidekick to parrot his every word.

WTF? Whatever. I do not accept Glenn Beck as a credible source when it comes to facts in the first place.

I agree. I used to lurk here on the Beck TV thread and I enjoyed it. But his ego has swelled to alarming proportions. It’s always about the next rally, the next great announcement that’s going to change the world, etc....very wearying. And I recently heard him mention his “followers.” I can’t stomach him anymore. I cancelled GBTV-——and I’m especially glad I did now that he’s defending Romney.

When Glen, Pat, and Stu try to be profound or funny, the show is just embarrassing. None of them, Glen Beck included, are funny or profound. The barroom chatter they produce is the kind of stuff that was cool after 6-8 beers but left all the sober people shaking their heads in befuddlement. The 10 minutes of good listening per hour just isn't worth wading through the mindless gibberish that surrounds it.

I think that Glen Beck is playing the drama queen again. A lot of Ron Paul supporters are real pieces of work but they aren't that crazy.

“run me off the road.”

I used to love to listen to Glenn Beck and read his books. But over the last year or so, I’d say the chesse has come of his cracker.

Off the cracker maybe not, moldy yes :-)...

Seriously, Glenn knows about Grace, Redemption, Forgiveness and to begin again.

Yet he is on a mad ass screed about Newt's Progressivism and didn't ask him about his tipping point.

It maybe too personal, but I want to know who, what, when, were, and why Newt changed, and how he became his own Ben Franklin ( Ben's turn-around story).

This is important so he doesn't break our hearts, He could be our Churchill or a bad bet a Churchill Downs.

I need to know how and why he is the former...

Same here. I no longer look at anything he has to say - It seems like he's going to implode one of these days = his candle burns on both ends and in the middle...

I don't either. I remember on one of his TV shows, he was talking about being visited by SOROS people,and being threatened by them, but I never heard another word about this or what ever happened.

Beck is grandstanding on this, illusions of grandiose. He may be seeing and hearing things that are not there, he may need professional help. I never listen to his radio shows, can't follow their nonsense speak and laughing like kindergarten girls.

Not a Paul fan and I know some of his supporters are rabid, but Beck’s shelf-life has gone way past it’s expiration date.

So true. My wife, who a year ago thought Beck was the greatest thing since sliced bread, had not seen or heard him since he left Fox News until today. Her comment: "What happened to him? He sounds like he's nuts."

I rarely listen to him, but he is the only thing on in my area before noon. (I'm a driver). The show sounds like lunchtime at the table of a group of highschoolers. The last 2 days when I tune in, it's a constant Newt bashing fest. My take is he is bucking for loser Romney, only if Obama wins can he push the gold, food insurance and doomsday messages. If he had true conviction and message, he wouldn't need his two parrots reinforcing every word he says. It's all about the dollar with GB, his ghost written books, his web subscriptions, his next rally. Beck jumped the shark for me about the time he started ripping off Levin's book content and his crying started. IMHO he puts a bad face on true conservatism.

I agree. He'll continue to fade into the background like all the others trying so hard to be the "next Rush."
