Denial is a savage beast. Plus he's some kind of born again Christian, so there's brainwashing involved. You see, this isn't Glenn Beck's fault. If America weren't such a liberal display of socialism Glenn Beck could retire and pretend not to stare at attractive women as they walked past his beach condo. It's his social duty to act as the misinformed watchdog of the States because the good Christian people here are largely incapable of discerning what's going on by themselves. I can guarantee that Beck sees his role as an honor and a privilege. Fuck, he probably thinks he's the world's biggest patriot.

He is a mormon. He admits that he became a mormon so he could fuck his wife, who wouldn't have sex/marry until they had a religion. He, since then, became really devoted to mormonism.

Sorry to all your Morm's out there, but this explains so much. So does the fact that he has a book called Arguing With Idiots: America's Next Epic Battle. Personally I think it has to do with Armageddon, but he's probably talking about abortion or some other panty-twisting, God-slapping offense.

Upon investigation of Mr. Beck's website I came across this little gem for all the wee fans out there:



The whole clothing page in general is actually quite fun to skim through.

Wow that was awkward. He propositioned her for some naughtiness like it was something a Latter Day Saint would do.

you guys think this dude is genuinely for real?

he's a conservative no doubt, but some of the shit he says is straight out of a loonatic asylum, I just can't believe he really genuinely believes the shit he's saying. no way,


i don't think even real conservatives really believe that guy. i remember that time he did that fake-ass crying on TV. LOL. that guy's a loser.....


Seems logical, huh? Unfortunately, a lot of people take him very seriously. If you've ever watched his show for five or ten minutes, you've seen that he habitually turns to the camera and says "America, are you hearing this?!?" or "America, don't let them...." or "America, you are losing your right to..."

He's probably very persuasive among people who are more inclined to believe what lets them be in fear or outraged. Keep in mind that there are a ton of people who WANT to hear what he is saying.


Too right. The same people have all of Bill O'Reilly's books. The only thing more powerful than fearmongering is wanting to be afraid. People need something to be afraid of, to complain about, to blame, and Glenn Beck is particularly good at fulfilling this need for people. There should be a show called Fear vs. Facts, which gives you the real shit straight up. Knowmore.org could sponsor.


Good points made. It sucks that you have ego-tistical maniac fucks like Beck claiming to be the voice of American citizens. And you'd hope people out there would be smarter than to follow leaders that say shit to get their self-esteem fed. It happens with alot of these political leaders.....you think you're following sound advice but all of a sudden you're brainwashed with supporting conceded fucks that don't live the same as the average joe; they're capitalizing on fighting for the little guy when they're just as bad as what they're "supposedly" against. Don't know if that made sense but thats how I see it.......

Another thing to pay attention to is Beck's absolute belief in his inscrutable rightness. At some point the doubt is removed from his consciousness so at everything he thinks, says, and does, is the truth. This kind of delusion is what's so dangerous about Beck and his ilk: the people want someone to tell them what's up, and if Beck confidently and passionately tells you that his perception is the right one, well hey, why not, I can buy into that. The smug self-righteousness of Beck is what really bugs me about him. When someone says anything that conflicts with his views he puts on a mask of total scorn, as if to say "How stupid of you, but thanks for watching."

Apparently last night's show was insane on epic levels. Beck can't spell, either.

"Awesomely bonkers" is a great way to describe his show.

Think about the fact that not a single writer, producer, director, cameraman, or intern said anything about the spelling. He had to have gone over the idea initially before taping. But he went on LIVE NATIONAL TV and made a fool of himself.
