Border Crisis: What Glenn Beck Did Wrong
by John Nolte 10 Jul 2014, 8:15 AM PDT
Wednesday morning The Blaze's Glenn Beck announced it was "deadly to my career" for him to provide truckloads of meals and soccer balls as a way to "help care for some of the roughly 60,000 underage refugees who have crossed into America illegally in 2014."
Early Thursday morning on "Morning Joe," the left-wing Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski did exactly what I feared the media would do after Beck's announcement: they trashed conservatives who disagreed with Beck as lacking in compassion. Scarborough even mocked them as un-Christian. And they are not alone.
The problem isn't what Beck did. The problem is how he did it.
Beck's desire to help kids caught in a geopolitical crossfire through no fault of their own is laudable. We all want to help. I've yet to hear anyone argue that it's wrong to use American taxpayer dollars to feed, house, and offer medical care to these children. No one opposes that.
Beck thinks more needs to be done.
But for Beck (and the media currently using him to club conservatives) to pretend there isn't a compassionate argument to be made against what Beck's doing is simply wrong, unfair, and a bit sanctimonious.
It's just a fact that these children are already being cared for once they arrive here. I'm not even sure they need Beck's charity. Regardless, the unthinkable danger for them occurs during the journey across a continent to get here. It's not just the natural elements these children have to worry about, I'm hearing on the news that fully one-third of young girls are sexually assaulted during the trip.

Beck blew it—Compassion is used by the Progs as a weapon—its a trap—and the Beck fell into it.
Not only that but the progressives are trying to go after the faithful by saying they are suppose to help the poor, love thy neighbor.
Libs are such evil deceptive bastards suing children and the poor to try and score points.
But, but, but...
You Conservatives are crucifying poor Glenn for his helping Obama....tsk, tsk. Sarc..
Joe Scarborough: Glenn Beck’s Border Gesture ‘Christ-like,’ Out of ‘Jesus Handbook’
Ive yet to hear anyone argue that it's wrong to use American taxpayer dollars to feed, house, and offer medical care to these children. No one opposes that.Someone isnt listening.
The compassionate thing to do is not encourage people south of the border to send their kids here and instead stay with their families.
Obama created this crisis to get what he wanted at their expense. And they are paying dearly for it - and so are we.
Mourning Schmoe is being blasphemous.
I don’t watch or listen to any of these programs except occasionally, but Glenn Beck always struck be as a poseur. He does what’s convenient for him when it’s convenient.
If he had compassion and half a brain he would have shipped the soccer balls down to Honduras and told the kids they would be waiting for them there.
The communists are promoting the theft of U.S citizens in order to gain a permanent slave class that will be forever dependent on the goods stolen from its lawful citizens, all for their own power.
As evil always does, it perverts the true and the good for its own power.
I’m all for minimal tax dollars being used to load um up and send um right back where they came from.
Anything more than that is encouraging more of them to show up.
Did they thank AG Holder for the AK-47s?
To be sure, “minimal” is not what Obama had in mind when he first invited this horde in and then started demanding $3.7 billion to impose a “solution” that will certainly be other than what he currently claims it will be.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson criticized President Obama for putting unaccompanied alien children before Chicago, and argued that the federal government should award the Windy City $2 billion to help combat violence.
Black Americans confront the pro illegal drum beaters...

He opened his mouth and spoke garbage.
Houston Black Woman EPIC Rant on Illegals - “ Why Can’t They Go Back ? “ - Bernadette Lancelin
Beck should have sent food, clothing, and soccer balls to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. You keep feeding a stray cat and eventually he moves right in.
Those in the dependent black community have willingly been led to the slaughter by Jackson, Sharpton and the like. Now they will have to compete for their freebies with millions of central americans.... let the games begin.
Democrats are going to play blacks against illegals for the few worthwhile jobs that get people out of poverty...
Charming. Democrats are stabbing their most loyal voter group in the back... guess they know Hispanics have higher numbers - and that blacks have no place to go... Maybe the GOP should reach out to them...
Sanctimonious? Yep, that word describes Beck to a T!
Purposely creating a humanitarian crisis to take advantage of the compassion of your opponents is a sc*mbag move.
Its all smoke for whats really going on and who is really crossing that border....and its easy to see who is under the boot....ducking the stick or nibbling the carrot...
When Beck publicly adopts all 90,000 criminal invaders and makes a pledge to pay the cost
Of housing, feeding, educating and providing
Healthcare for them AND takes all responsibility for their criminal activities in the future I’ll give him cudos
But he is not.He’s putting on a political stunt to ge ME and every other over taxed over regulated Taxpayer to foot the Full ride cost
What a wanker!
Come on he would never get the attention he so loves and your idea is so much better!
I hate when people say we all want to help. I don’t and don’t want to be included in the we.
Obeckma supporting Illegal Alien Amnesty
Absolutely Anti-American what Obeckma did
Why not trade? We get your kids, we get your beaches. Sounds fair to me. Obama overthrew the government of Libya. Why shouldn’t he overthrow the governments of Central America?
Thanks for the link KeyLargo... Yep, this young black woman has figured out what’s going on... she ‘gets’ it. The black community’s been screwed so often they can sense it as it’s happening.
What about the middle class?
Middle class parents with their college graduate children sleeping in their basements need to say the same to the Technology, Medical, and Accounting Industries... that they’re sick of them bringing in cheap foreign labor to keep jobs and wages down. It’s time to stand up and say it like it is...
Well said. Misplaced "compassion" is the stock in trade of the demented Left. It is the way they seek to manage their primitive hate and rage. Beck is so full of himself he does not realize how angry and dysfunctional he is. That is why he sometimes pulls creepy liberalesque stunts like this one.
I hope to God that people here stop piling on Glenn Beck. Glenn is a very good man who, very early on, helped alert all who would listen just what a demon Obama is. I think he made a huge, tragic mistake, but I hope that everyone at FR says a prayer for him. Glenn is a super talent, a very compassionate man, and we all need him.
And they are paying dearly for it - and so are we.
What is happening currently is nothing compared to the chaos and destruction ahead of us. So grateful to have lived during a time when America was great. So sad that my grandchildren will be living in the Third World right here in North America.
“. I’ve yet to hear anyone argue that it’s wrong to use American taxpayer dollars to feed, house, and offer medical care to these children. No one opposes that.”
Indo. We are $17.5T in debt, Social Security is broke, our vets can’t get healthcare.
Yet we have money and doctors for a bunch of illegals?
Good post. Amazing how often we eat our own, isn’t it?
Michael Savage: Glenn Beck is a huckster, con man
By MFP July 10th, 2014
Do you really think he cares about the children? This huckster, this carnival barker Glenn Beck cares about the children?
Earlier this year, Glenn Beck joined fellow Mormon Harry Reid in his efforts to confiscate Nevada rancher Cliven Bundys land.
During the tense standoff, Beck urged BLM agents to open fire on Bundy supporters.
Becks faux-conservative news site The Blaze deceptively edited remarks made Bundys as part of a coordinated smear campaign to portray the feeble near-septuagenarian as a raving racist.
Now, Beck is teaming up with Harry Reid again painting the hundreds of thousands of would-be welfare queens and MS-13 gangmembers storming Americas southern border as poor, harmless children shameless, Goebbels-esque propaganda for which Beck has received high praise from MSNBC

Judas Goat Glenn Beck Colludes With CIA and CFR to Take Down Patriot Movement
In the UAE wealthy Arabs take tents, gems, gold, and assorted fineries into the desert to ‘vacation’... They also bring along ‘beggars’ from the city for entertainment. The beggar who asks for help with the most flourish, butt kissing, and self humiliation gets the 'alms'.
Overdone and it's a dark side of human nature... Think of it as an Ozymandias syndrome. Beck needs to fight it... he's getting touches of it. And yeah, it's good to help children and others... with YOUR OWN MONEY... NOT money forced from free citizens.
Black American from Gang-Besieged Baltimore: ‘Where Can I Get Asylum?’
by Tony Lee 11 Jul 2014 1612 post a comment
As the White House plans to spend billions of taxpayer funds to take care of illegal immigrant children who are unlawfully entering the country, some black Americans who live in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods are wondering where they and their children can get refugee status and aid.
On Friday’s Laura Ingraham Show, Elaine, a black woman from Baltimore, expressed her outrage that President Barack Obama is putting the interests of illegal immigrant children above those of American citizens. Though the number of illegal immigrant children unlawfully entering the country has spiked since Obama unilaterally enacted his temporary amnesty program in 2012, the White House has said the primary cause of the border crisis is the rampant gang violence in Central America.
“I’m living a nightmare. My whole neighborhood is so violent. There’s so much crime,” she said. “I have gangs everywhere here in Baltimore! I can’t let my daughter ride her bicycle outside I can’t do anything, Laura! I’m trapped here.”
Elaine told Ingraham that she listens to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Obama and feels that “nobody is saying a word” while spending billions of dollars taking care of foreigners who are unlawfully in the country.
She's right. The liberal elite power structure is going to be playing illegals against blacks... it's evil...
