Do You Watch Glenn Beck?

Glenn Beck is all over the place these days, which means either his overdramatic performance speaks to Americans or that people love to watch a train wreck, or both!

This week the New York Times called Beck "Fox News’s mad, apocalyptic, tearful rising star." Salon turned Beck's broadcasts into poems. One reads: "Believe in something. Even if it's wrong."

Yesterday on Morning Joe, fellow conservative Joe Scarborough pondered whether Glenn Beck is really parodying Stephen Colbert parodying Bill O'Reilly. If so — no wonder Beck's show is number two on Fox. Colbert and O'Reilly are ratings machines.

It seems with such bizarre competition from his fellow wing nuts, Beck has literally gone over the hysterical top with his antics. I don't watch him but I enjoy the parodies and comments by Steve Colbert and John Stewart. Beck's a right wing nut and his incendiary bull spits affects weak minds, so far he has been semi credited for the cop shootings by another crazy he may have inflamed.

This dude is a buffoon. Talk about catering to the Lowest Common Denominator.

i watched him on headline news (cnn). recently caught him on fox news. a bit of a change in terms of tone w.r.t. his rhetoric. one thing i found funny was he was interviewing a conservative member of the u.k. parliament and they were talking about something and he made a reference to "soylent green" and then followed it by "well americans would get it. it is a movie reference." like they would not watch "soylent green" in the u.k. or something. not a big deal but i was just tickled by it.

I used to watch him on CNN. I haven't had a chance to catch him on Fox now. I agree with some of his opinion, not all. I"m sorry Steph but believing that war is always a result of failed leadership is like still believing in the tooth fairy and unicorns. I'm not trying to be mean. It's my opinion.

LOL. I came from a liberal household, and most of them whine about taxes too LOL. But of course, none of them are on Sugar network but me :p Glenn Beck is kind of clown-ish, I caught the first 5 minutes of his show yesterday and was like, huh? But oh well, I guess if his rating is good, he's just going to keep on doing whatever he's doing because people must be watching. I just wonder why Fox has the highest rating compared to CNN and such, because many have deemed it too right-wing, right? Maybe even the left-wing watch too just to keep an eye? :lol:

Nope, I cannot take Glenn Beck. Same goes for: All Fox anchors/"journalists", Joe Scarborugh, Rick Santelli, Nancy Grace (overly dramatic and not dedicating extra time to other missing children/stories), Cramer and a few others who's names I have forgotten. These people get on my very last nerve.

By the way, my VERY liberal parents-in-laws whine about paying their taxes too.

I know what Quakers do, thanks. I don't whine about paying my fair share of taxes, that's a conservative thing.
Grandpa Grandpa 8 years
So then you do believe you have a responsibility to pay your fair share of taxes, even that part of your taxes that go "to the common defence"? Quakers do pay taxes by the way.

It means I don't believe in war or the weapons that make them so fun. That belief guides my votes, my spending decisions, my positions on other issues. It doesn't necessarily contradict 'prepare for the common defence' but if everyone felt the way I do, preparing for that common defence would take a very different form than it does. Quakers don't believe in war either and I don't think anyone's concerned that they're trying to undermine the Constitution or control how the country is run.

I copied and pasted your comment, and asked for clarification. I understood it as your response to "I think most wars are failures of leadership and I don't believe in contributing to them. All weapons, not just ones carried by soldiers sent out by presidents I don't like" Which was your response to "Steph, "prepare for the common defence", is part of the preamble to the constitution. Where it outlines the purpose of our government" If there is another interpretation it was not clear to me, and while i can not speak for other readers of this string, not clear to them either. You did say "I don't believe in contributing to them. All weapons, not just ones carried by soldiers sent out by presidents I don't like". It is not a made up quote, and find it hard to find another interpretation.

Seems like you're reading things into my comments in order to have something to criticize G. Live where and as you choose.

Steph, you said: "I think most wars are failures of leadership and I don't believe in contributing to them". It sounds like you believe everyone has the right to interpret the Constitution as they see fit? I am not sure I would like such a place. I should say I know i would want to live under those rules, which are in essence no rules butmine count..

I like watching Colbert make fun of him :) He's a good person though, I have nothing against him or the people who watch him.

I'm not complaining...Not sure why you think that. From what you said in your comment about the article, it seemed like you were saying that the word "welfare" in the article should be read as welfare as we know it today. I'm simply saying the article doesn't mean we should help every individual of the US. I was disagreeing with what it looked like you were saying.

I think most wars are failures of leadership and I don't believe in contributing to them. All weapons, not just ones carried by soldiers sent out by presidents I don't like. Brookrene, I've seen other people complain welfare of the U.S. has come to mean welfare as we know it today.

stephley - I would believe the article I, section 8 you're referencing means the "welfare of the US" as in the country itself not each individual we're gonna pay and provide for.

Remember,Undave, ladies this is Glenn Beck's nine principles, not The declaration of Independence, nor the Constitution. We are free to reject those principles, we are not free to reject the Constitution.

what does that mean, that you dont believe in contributing to weapons or wars? just wars you dont see the point in or in general? all weapons? or just ones carried by soldiers sent out by presidents you dont like?
