Info about a Glenn Beck Quotation (vanity/help request)
the internet | 1/19/2011 | Me

Posted on 01/19/2011 6:00:09 AM PST by HushTX

Before I get slammed with the usual "use the search function," let me explain that I HAVE attempted to use the search function. I did every combination of the following keywords that I could think of:

Glenn Beck Kill Michael Moore

Nothing came up.

I am trying to find a full transcript, or better yet audio, of Glenn Beck saying "I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself." Actually, I can find that on youtube. What I CAN'T seem to find is anything that has the FULL quotation, because if you listen to the audio it is quite obviously cut off at the end.

As you may guess, this is part of a discussion I am having with some libtardian orc, and I would prefer not to let this go unanswered. I am NOT a huge Beck fan, but I think this is liberal crap, and I like that less than Beck.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

On yesterday’s program, Beck condemned violence on either side. He condemns violence all together. I wouldn’t believe for one minute that he said anything even close to killing a person IMHO.

I believe that it was Bill Orielly who said it. I vaguely remember him saying it as a joke. I can’t really remember when but I am pretty sure it was last year.

Personally I would suggest that the liberal provide the rest of the quote and if he can't, suggest that maybe someone isn't being quite honest.

Yeah, all the ones I listened to seem clipped at the end and it’s driving me crazy.

I hope you know I wouldn’t ask for help if I wasn’t actually having a hard time tracking down the answers.

Also, I have heard people complain about media matters being a “liberal source.” Any word on that?

Anyone with more Beck knowledge than I have any idea when this was in relation to his abandoning of “his sinful ways?”

Nope, I've never been there.

All I know about it is third hand, not verified.

I listen to Beck allot, and although he sometimes says things I don't agree with, and sometimes even goes off the deep end, I have never heard him say anything like that. And if he did it was with his usual sarcasm, using humor along with a dumb comment to make a point. Rush does that all the time.

But what the Liberal watchdog group, Media Matters does is quote his words, but not the delivery, and that makes all the difference in the world as to its meaning. They did the same thing with a comment they said he made about hating 9/11 survivors. They never play the audio clip so I don't what he actually said, but they often repeat the accusation on liberal talk radio.

He condemns violence all together.
So what does he suggest we all do if China decides to collect with an army of soldiers instead of an army of lawyers? Simply surrender?
It just doesn't compute.

Actually he condemns violence in the place of legal or political solutions. He’s all for self defense and has made sure his family is armed and trained.

Beck said it in the attempt to give a joking answer to the question “What would you do for $50Million

What you’ll find as you research this is some carefully crafted audio clips (see youtube)...three and four-second bites spliced together... that put Beck’s words completely out of context.

You can’t see it in the screencap but Dobbs is listed as a critic.

What does he suggest in the event that legal or political solutions have no effect? Surrender and simply accept the chains?
There has to come a point in time when even he has to concede that revolution, and therefore violence, is required and necessary.
What's his tipping point? Where is his line in the sand?
(or has he simply not articulated any views relating to these questions to date since doing so would, of necessity, cost him his job?)

He’s all for self defense and has made sure his family is armed and trained.
That's nice. However, your reply doesn't directly answer my original question. If he's offered no opinion then I can understand the lack of an appropriate answer.
