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’.”

Oh, Beck means, give up the guy with the Jewish sounding name so the terrorists win. Otherwise they’ll be really mad at us.

“Mormon Beck supports Mormon Romney and so lies about Gingrich”

Easy to spot those who don't watch or listen to his show. Glenn is totally for Santorum, even giving out the Santorum web sight several times each day encouraging listeners to donate to his campaign.

The time Beck said “I don’t like him. I think he has nefarious plans” was right after he discussed Newt was staying in the race just to go after Romney for his many attack ads. That is when I really began to see Beck bash Newt and Fox as well. It was almost coordinated as they both would say the same thing.

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

I would agree. But unfortunately the President, the Congressional Black Caucus, the usual Race Baiters, and the Lamestream media are all blasting out destructive lies about what happened, and covering up most of the facts.

For the most part, the conservative response has been pretty mild. We aren't the ones calling for lynchings or immediate arrests. We are not the ones hoping for riots and killings. But if we don't respond to these disgusting attacks by putting the facts out there in response, then we are negligent of our duties to the truth and to our country.

Something happened to him. I’m not sure what.

Obvious answer is that he's back on the sauce.

Or, he can't take the attacks on fellow Mormon, Willard.

Or, the irrationality of leftists, &c.

Zimmermann is going to be guilty no matter what. The blacks are up in arms and in the streets, the black politicians and entertainers have called for Zimmerman’s head and all the liberal media are all over this spouting off half truths or no truths. HLN is shameful. You can bet your ass Holder is behind the scenes this fiasco right now.

Here is my take on it.

Zimmerman = Not Guilty but not exactly smart in how he handled the situation

Trayvion = Guilty of Assault and dumb as a box of rocks for attacking Zimmerman which lead to his death.

Both parties in this siuation “acted stuipidly” and they each earned their end result to some degree.

Glen Beck has a stir stick almost as bad as Jesse Jackson’s stir stick. We used to listen to Glen, but havn’t for a good while. He has become too full of himself.

I know if someone were following me, I would get out of dodge asap. I would try to lose them and maybe call 911 to report a susicious person following me and a need for help. I would not confront them as they could be on drugs, drunk, crazy or carry a gun. They could be a wacko Twitter follower of Spike Lee or Roseanne Barr who want to terrorize me because they are leftists who like to be vigilantes. Know what I mean?

“You’re falling down on the job again, Mr. Beck. Stick to truth and objectivity and your ratings will do just fine...”

The theme for GBTV is “The truth Lives Here”. He seems to have forgotten that on this story. As someone else pointed out, he needs to take a deep breath, shut the heck up, and let the investigation take its course. Judging by comments on the GBTV and Glenn Beck forums, other GB listeners are also outraged by his knee-jerk reaction.

The Trayvon crusaders here are fond of posing questions, and trying to shift the burden onto Zimmerman. You alluded to something they can never answer:

If Martin felt threatened why didn’t he call the police?

I have a couple more:

Why didn’t Zimmerman just pull up alongside Martin in his truck if he wanted to confront Martin?

How did Zimmerman initiate the final confrontation when he couldn’t find Martin?

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.”

Wow, that's more than just a little bit nuts. Granted, a certain amount of "imbalance" is entertaining (going all the way back to when residents of the London area would pack a Saturday lunch and go watch the mental-patient antics on the grounds of Bethlam Royal Hospital).

That analogy explains Beck's former popularity pretty well, but just as those folks at "Bedlam" found out, that stuff can go from amusing to profoundly disturbing in a heartbeat.

To me he jumped the shark after his big rally, I think it went to his head. I used to enjoy the humorous take on the regime he and his radio buddies used to have but his whole doomsday preacher persona is extremely annoying. He’s like Alex jones minus the screaming fits.

Ca’t watch Beck anymore and gave it up several months ago. Just goes off topic way too far and his online articles looks more like tabloid reporting...

Too bad he’s lost his focus.....it was good while it lasted...but Beck derailed himself.

I think Beck lost his mind after being ousted from FNC. All I hear from him now is lunacy.

Every time I watched his show, he seemed right on the edge of insanity. It became uncomfortable to watch. He reminded me of a cult leader, raving & ranting, just before he hands out the koolaid.

Apparently, Beck cannot see the hypocracy of his prejudging Zimmerman vs. the prejudgment of the Black Panthers. How will he feel if an assassin kills Zimmerman based on Glenn Beck's judgment of guilt? I'll bet he would shrug his shoulders & say, “Not my fault”.

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.

***********

The problem with your approach is that the the Martin family has been trying this case in the media for weeks. If the people opposing the lynching of Zimmerman decide to “shut the heck up” after the lynching has begun, the lies will become established before the real truth comes out.

Something about him I have never liked. I couldn't watch him when he was on FOX.
Maybe he fell of his tricycle when he was little.

"If Martin felt threatened why didn’t he call the police?"

Running then calling the police would seem to have been logical. IF he really felt threatened.

"How did Zimmerman initiate the final confrontation when he couldn’t find Martin?"

That is the big question. AFAIK this is the only account out there. From Zimmerman's father: ""He called the non-emergency number first, and they asked him where he was. Because he was at the rear of the townhouses and there was no street sign," Zimmerman said. Even though a dispatcher told Zimmerman not to follow Martin, his father says he continued walking to locate an address to give to police.

"He lost sight of the individual, he continued to walk down the same sidewalk to the next street so he could get an address for the police. He went to the next street, realized where he was, and was walking to his vehicle," Zimmerman said.

That's when Robert Zimmerman says Trayvon Martin walked up to George Zimmerman."

Beck is a good man in most ways, but he owes the Zimmermans a BIG apology. Mostly guilty? Good grief. I knew better than to offer anyone any kind of opinion just because there was leftist hype about it. It’s time he learns that simple truth. When the right boldly challenges the left’s viewpoint, you can take it to the bank 99% of the time.

I think Beck has expressed the ideal of not using deadly force in self defense. He's fearful that a civil war is coming with an economic collapse and has an ideal everyone could act like “little house on the prairie” if they are told to do so. Submission and fear feeds lefty racists and only makes them more aggressive and violent.

Glenn Beck has adopted some of the worst tactics of the left.

He pretended to be for conservative candidates, and for conservative issues, all the while herding the sheeple around the corral with the end goal being coercing them into the arms of Mitt Romney. Suckers!

Obviously, Trayvon Martin was already developing a reputation as a serial violent offender. Now he is reformed, permanently.

I think it’s simple. Beck likes to have advertisers, and picks a few issues, like eligibility and the Zimmerman lynching, and goes round the bend with them.

“See, can’t call me a mindless conservative! I make fun of birthers and sympathize with my oppressed black brothers!”

He’s a showman. He’s trying to satisfy his sponsors and his audience. Maybe that’s as deep as it goes.

I’ve heard quite a few conservative talkers treading very, very lightly around this issue. I think there is real fear out there, and not just fear of racial violence. There is fear of losing sponsors, or being replaced because of an statement that gets quoted out of context on this white hot issue.

Sad, strange times.

I think Beck has expressed the ideal of not using deadly force in self defense.

Funny talk for a guy who I hear carries concealed firearms. So according to Beck, Zimmerman was suppose to give Martin his gun so he could shoot Zimmerman when Martin was done pummeling him.

The punk Martin met the wrong guy. He should have picked on a guy who could spin him like a toy top in a fight. But that usually doesn't happen because bullies size up people they feel they can easily dominate and not get hurt. Hypothetically speaking, if he tried to take me, he would still be alive today as I would made short work of that 17 year old, and sat on him until the cops came to picked him up for assault. Martin would have been an inconsequential notice on the local police blotter instead of being dead and having Sharpton and Jackson come to town to demagogue with the liberal national media in tow.

A punk who mugs or physically assaults persons who are not capable of physically fighting back and they also carry firearms, the punk has a great chance of getting shot by those persons since they fear for their lives against brutes and bullies.

He's fearful that a civil war is coming with an economic collapse and has an ideal everyone could act like “little house on the prairie” if they are told to do so.

I'm still waiting for Beck's coming revolution of chaos started by the communists, anarchists, globalists, and other assorted malcontents that he says is imminently going to happen in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 2012. /not so much sarcasm

WTH is wrong with Glenn Beck? Does he take a double dose of STUPID with his corn flakes in the morning? The thing to say is: “There is too much contradicting information or important things not yet released to the public. People need to wait until all the evidence has been evaluated.”

[Hint to Beck: “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool instead if opening your mouth and removing all doubt.”]
