Glenn Beck 'doubles down' on George Zimmmerman's "guilt"
GlennBeck.com ^ | 03/28/2012 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 03/29/2012 10:23:33 AM PDT by vikingrinn

“Now, let me be clear: I am not defending George Zimmerman in any way. Right now I think he’s most likely guilty,” Glenn said.

“Let’s pray the system takes its course before some lunatic decides to listen to the words of The Black Panthers and try to get an ‘eye for an eye’.”

Self-contradict much, Glenn?

While the death of this young man was tragic, wouldn't the possibility of death of the survivor from the unfortunate altercation weigh equally prior to the grand jury receiving (and in turn the rest of us) all the facts/pre-trial?

In fact, revelations thus far seem to indicate more inflammatory rhetoric from yourself are, at best, superfluous:

Again, so much for your being an 'objective', 'enlightened', 'truth-seeking' pundit...

Stick to truth and objectivity and your ratings will do just fine...

There are lots of folks here, there, and everywhere who like Beck. It surprises me, I think he’s tremendously unimpressive when compared to thinkers and articulators like Rush and Levin and whomever you might think are prescient or insightful in the economic/financial realm. Beck is what Levin calls a back bencher IMO.

None of us should be trying this case on the radio or on Twitter from a thousand miles away.

Everyone needs to take a deep breath, shut the heck up, and let the investigation take its course.

Watch a few of his shows on Fox before we divested from Obama’s MSM.

The red phone to the White House stunt was clever.

His radio show f’in sucks.

I think Glenn is out to lunch on these comments about Zoimmerman’s guilt.

From all I have seen and read now, I believe Zimmerman to be completely innocent of wrong doing and that he justifiably defended himself when he shot Trayvon who had attacked him, knocked him to the ground, broke his nose and bloodied his face and was in the process of trying to repeatedly slam his head against the ground.

In such a circumstance, if armed woith a gun, I would have done the same thing.

I am open to the investigators finding different mitigating evidence, and the decision of a grand jury should one be needed...but at this point based on all the testimony and evidence I have heard, seen, and read about, that’s what I think happened.

...and I believe the left, from the President through congressional members down to the New Black Panthers are making a dispicable spectacle of the whole thing for purely political and ideological reasons in an attempt to deflect attention away from Obama’s pitiful record.

The Florida law authorities, particularly the Attorney General should grow a pair in this circumstance and send the State Troopers after those New Black Panthers who have come to Florida and who are inciting violence and commiting conspiracy to kidnap and injure a man not charged with any crime to this point. That should not be allowed...or ignored because it is blatantly illegal, and it will lead to an even worse set of circumstances than they already have.

Because when the Catastrophe took place, he was the only one (one of a few anyway) who stepped out and reminded us that We Surround Them. He was willing to get in their faces, with his dedicated phone line for the white hut to call on and challenge anything he was saying. His call for “deep throats” to come in and blow the whistle on the administration. His modeling of the behavior of every joe sixpack out there reading the real documents for themselves for the first time.

Look, I had to stop watching him, or listening too much talk radio, no more watching FNC, because I was too upset and too angry all the time. It wasn’t good for me. I wish him all the best, and pray his continued good health, such as it is—I think he contracted some pretty bad health condition, IIRC. He’s not the best, but he’s far from the worst.

Why does Glenn "think he’s most likely guilty”?

I damned sure haven't heard enough to form a solid opinion one way or the other.

If Zimmerman had been killed the mantra would be, courageous black youth stops crazed redneck gunman.

I have the feeling, from conversations on a local forum, that some "conservatives" would rather throw Zimmerman to the wolves than risk race riots. American law is being held hostage by thugs, foreign and domestic, making threats of violence.

Beck is an idiot.

I believe Zimmerman is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt as a result of a fair trial in a Court of Law, before a jury of his peers as finders of fact.

Such peers would obviously not include the tattered likes of Jackson, Sharpton, Obama or Glen Beck.They cannot tell shite from shinola, obviously.

Beck just wants his ratings among people of color to remain high. What a sell out.

I could not believe what he said regarding Newt Gingrich about 3 days ago on his radio show. He said Newt Gingrich is the enemy of God. That is correct. Remember when he said if the tea party votes for Newt it must be racism because Newt is the same as Obama and it is better to vote for Ron Paul or Romney over Newt? He is truly off the deep end over Newt. A few months ago I heard him say “I don’t like him. I believe he has nefarious plans.”

“I can’t believe I used to like Beck.

Same here.

Glenn Beck “apologized” for calling Obama a racist, just so he could get Martin Luther King’s daughter to speak at his Lincoln Memorial rally.

He threw Andrew Breitbart under the bus over the Shirley Sherrod video.

Glenn Beck is a self-serving creep.

Beck should be careful whom he declares an “enemy of God”. From what I understand, Gingrich has asked Christ for forgiveness and to be his Lord and Savior, and as such, has become a child of the Most High.

Who is YOUR God, Beck? Hmmmm?

“Because when the Catastrophe”

Are you referring to the financial crisis of 2008-2009 or the election of 0bama? (honest question)

I think Beck has had his moments. I agree, he’s not the best nor the worst. He has done some good work, primarily during the financial crisis. But I think that he’s not an originator, he’s not an original thinker. He’s never the first one to see nor articulate something. So, I’m just saying....there are better sources, far better sources. And, if I was in love with his delivery, then that would be that. But I’m not. And he has some goofballisms that negate his strengths, so overall, I’m sub-lukewarm on him.

I heard him say this on Monday's show and I was hoping like heck he would walk it back on Tuesday and Wednesday when more facts were coming out. But he is not. I like Beck's show, but he is in total knee-jerk reaction mode and not following his own “Being George Washington” cawlmer-heads prevail philosophy.

Everyone needs to take a deep breath, shut the heck up, and let the investigation take its course.

That's everyone of the leftist medidiots from Steffie to Scarborough to Rosanne Barr to Spike Lee to include dingbat Beck who needs to shut up because the evidence does even come close in supporting their contention that Zimmerman is guilty.

It has been since February 26th since this incident took place. Any real new evidence coming out now is about a 1 and billion chance that will change anything substantial. The police cleared Zimmerman. The DA cleared Zimmerman. Beck or any other OBot wishing guilt is not going to happen. If a grand jury somehow indites Zimmerman on the known evidence, which does not support an indictment, Zimmerman will easily win in court. No DA wants to be the big loser in court as what will happen if this goes to trial.

That being said, the OBots and useful idiots like Beck wants to stir the race relation pot for no good. Beck that village idiot, wants his "Revolutionary Holocaust" to come to reality. Beck wants to prove himself right and seems not to care if he has a hand in it, albeit a lame attempt. Other hidden motives from leftist like Al Sharpton wants to rally the black vote for Obama in November.
