Glen Beck is a whack job. He'll say anything to keep his high paying job. I use to watch him years ago but. he's way to extreme now. He needs a shrink. My opinion.

I watch him quite often and he is one of the few people out there that can really relate to others the government issues and tells it like it is. Of course there are some out there that will argue his points but he does pretty much back up everything that he says with both history as well as related facts of the subject that he is on. And he does it then and there (at the time) and not later as a defensive measure after the fact.

More people should watch him and they would really have an insight and understanding as to what is happening to our country as well as how and why. It would really wake people up.

Often, his history and facts are distorted to fit is agenda.

I do not watch TV but will often catch Glen and O'Rieily on the computer at Fox News. I agree with Bill and Bob on this one. Their topics and points of view align with mine. Glen uses a bit of theatrics and sarcasm to get his point across but it all makes sense. People need to wake up because our government is taking our country away from us.

A discussion of personal politics is a good way to create anger and hostility in a group that, otherwise, has a friendly and supportive rapport.

Saying that, and knowing that on a gun forum, my views may be in the minority, I'll have to take sides with Ray and state that in my opinion, Beck et al. are reactionary, delusional firebrands who will manipulate facts to elicit emotional responses from their viewers. I've reached an age where I don't want someone to tell me what or how to believe, but rather to give me the facts and let me draw my own conclusions. Fox news and their minions insult my intelligence.

But hey... I do like you guys, left, right or independent.

Cheers,

Funny, - that's how I see CNBC, CBS, MSNBC et al ... all presenting "their view" of what's news and what it means.  - Worse than insulting, ...

I agree John. It appears to a great many people (and more and more all the time) that the so called "main stream media" are in the pockets of the government but at least a couple of the other media outlets are beginning to see the light. Leaning one sided and especially to the left, not informing or misinforming the American people will be the downfall of many of the news organizations.  This is easily seen already by the polls that have been conducted regarding fair news broadcasting or lack of. Several of them have already seen a lot of their market share go down the tubes as it should.

Being a History Major myself, I can attest that everything that Glen says about history, is correct ! Sometimes he puts itin 21 st. century vocabulary so that those that have not read the Constitution or the Federalist Papers, can better understand what the Founding Fathers intended our Constitution to say !



And no one that he has pointed out as a "Socialist" has proven him wrong ! In fact everyone of them has been shown by their actions, deeds and very own words that Glen is correct about them !



I am just afraid that the men remaining at this time in history do not have the steel to stop or change this path to destruction !



GOD, PLEASE BLESS US ALL ! And PLEASE GOD, BLESS AMERICA !!!!! We surly need YOUR HELP !!!!

Have to jump on the opposite bandwagon. Glen is a fraud, he often skews facts and exaggerates tremendously.

I don't know why it's so tough to realize that you should never trust biased media. There is a thing called the internet where everybody can do research for themselves. Believing what some paid goon on a massively biased news network says, is not what i'd call objective.
I've seen vids on youtube where networks like MSNBC and similar biased media hid some facts. But you have to give them one thing...they don't exaggerate like mad men and symbolically light people on fire. What is this anyway...news for 14 y.o.? Come on!

Just because i display my dismay of Glen Beck, that means i'm inciting riots?
Even if Glen tried to be funny he is not, Stephen Colbert is funny, Glen just tries too hard and with a weird sense of humor. Look it's not that i made this up, the whole internet is laughing at Glen Beck and exposing him for the smuck he is.
I mean really...if lighting a man on fire is considered humor...then there's something really wrong with the world. If you're interested in the bare facts then i suggest you get some more credible source.

And yeah, if my criticism of Glen is enough to make you want to skin me and light me up...well then, we can both be glad we don't live close by.


P.S. Did you really believe that time Glen cried on his show to be sincere tears? Contrary to what you believe i watch Beck often.

I can't understand the people that see only what they want too, and believe only the words that they want to hear ? Fear and prejudice seem to be the largest contributor to this. They huddle together and make noise about subjects that they have only been told about.



Look at subjects from all sides, 360 degrees. Find out for yourself what's happening !



So many people are Democrats and Republican just because their fathers and grand-fathers were the same. Don't you have a brain of your own ? Are you not capable of thinking ? Or is it just easier to be a sheeple, following the Judas Ram into the slaughter house !



So many people votefor a candidate, and know nothing about them, they can't even pick the photo of who they voted for form a list of two ! SHEEPLE !!!!! Mindless, lazy, stupid people that should have never survived past puberty. Followers of candidates that they know nothing about, and don't care, the facts only confuse them ! I guess it is just so much easier to follow the crowd into the pit, than to chart your own course, a face life head on. Being a Homo sapience is so much more difficult than being a Homo erectus !



GOD, PLEASE HELP US ALL ! PLEASE !!!!!

Completely agree.

People need to watch less mainstream media, because most of is corrupt...make your own research and take everything with a grain of salt. That is all i wanted so say.

I find it funny that most of those who criticize of Glen Beck often comes those with the inability to dispute the historical facts he presents. If you don't think this country is in serious economic, social, and moral trouble, I believe that is the heart of the problem.

The silent majority really can't afford to be silent anymore.

Glen Beck does not incite anything. It's the deviation or perversion of values and personal accountability...it's the disassociation of the politician and the responsibility of constitutionally designed, true representation ...it's the corrosion of personal freedom for the "collective good" that is the sole reason for the escalating anger and demonstration. I pray this dissatisfaction grows louder and with more commitment. One man's sins should never jeopardize the freedoms of another. And, yet we see this corrosion everyday.

This is not the same country my parents grew up in. I am sure I am not alone with this assessment. I hope we can get it back.

So, yes, I watch Glen Beck, Fox News, Sarah Palin, and loved Ronald Reagan. Funny, all those I mentioned are rightfully proud of America. I can't believe that with the present President. Honestly, can you?

Oh, by the way, I didn't need Glen Beck to believe this way.

Glen Beck just has to show the videos of the morons in Washington, they hang themselves.  No one on the other stations or Washington ever challenges him on his facts.  The red phone is silent. Weiner or Whiner complained about his Gold sponsors let the buyer beware and do your own homework on investments.
