Feds Investigate Glenn Beck For Trump Threat. Frankly we’ve listened to the tape numerous times and can’t really figure out if he was talking about Trump, or as claimed, his employee. Evidently the Secret Service thinks it was the former.
Glenn Beck Responds to South Carolina Primary Results: ‘Join Me’ in a ‘Fast for Ted Cruz.’ Is Glenn off his meds or something?
Last November, Glenn Beck was bestowed with the honor of being named World’s Worst Person by Keith Olbermann.
What had Beck done to deserve this singular honor? He had the temerity to predict that Olbermann would be dumped by Comcast as soon as it completed its acquisition of NBC. They were, Beck said, more interested in building an audience and generating profits than spewing left wing propaganda.
Those opinions, Olbermann said, were proof that Beck knows nothing – absolutely nothing – about the television businsss.
Sixty days later, Comcast takes over, and whoosh, Olbermann is gone.
Get to Las Vegas, Glenn. You’re on a hot streak.
You may not have known this, but that damn Glenn Beck is responsible for three assassination attempts this year. David Brock of the exceptionally liberal Media Matters said so, so it must be true.
Yes, certainly, the three would-be assassins were insane, but only because Glenn Beck drove them insane.
Almost as insane as David Brock.
Consider this entire interview convincing evidence that Bertha Lewis, the former CEO of ACORN, is insane. She thinks Glenn Beck is into necrophilia. Metaphorically, we hope.
Discussing the death of ACORN, she said, “Now we’ve become political necrophiliacs. Not only did we kill this organization, but we’re going to dig ‘em up and we’re going to have all kinds of congress with the corpse. Over and over again. Political necrophiliacs like Beck, like Murdoch, like Fox, like Limbaugh, like Mr. Breitbart … My boyfriend, Glenn Beck, who seems to be obsessed with me … if he wants a date he should just ask.”
Did she mean congress or Congress? If she meant “congress” then she’s talking about necrophilia. But if she meant Congress, then we’re so screwed that we’ll all wish we were dead.
Sex with Lewis’ corpse may just be preferable to sex with a living Lewis. At least she wouldn’t talk.
IHateTheMedia.com is a form of civic duty and we’re proud to be able to do our part for the cause. But you know what sucks about it? What really sucks about it? We have to view MSNBC clips.
For example, today we want to point out the empty rhetoric of Keith Olbermann’s Wednesday night attack on Glenn Beck. But in order to provide the correct clip we have to watch the show again, and even worse, and to make sure we get the quotes correct we have to watch it over and over again and listen very closely to make sure we get the transcript correct. And as anyone with a functioning medulla oblongata knows, watching Olbermann even once is painful enough. Watching over and over again is a form of self-imposed cruel and unusual punishment.
But we digress.
In his attack on the three part series Beck is doing on George Soros, Olbermann mocks Beck for making his point with puppets and dismisses the Fox host as paranoid and psychotic.
What he does not do is challenge Beck on a single fact – typical of most left wing attacks on Beck.
Soros, according to Beck, has messianic delusions, despises the United States and provides the funding for dozens of progressive organizations – Media Matters, MoveOn.org, ACORN, Tides Foundation, etc. Many people feel Soros is the man behind the Obama administration itself. The exact amount of money he has funneled to Obama cannot be determined due to the lack of transparency in the collection of foreign campaign contributions during the 2008 presidential election. He supports abortion, atheism, open borders, gun control, legalized drugs, and euthanasia.
Rather than respond to the facts Beck presented, Olbermann lamely reverted to a failed attempt at comedic schtick as a diversion from the real issues.
One can only imagine that Sgt. Joe Friday, with his preoccupation with “Just the facts” would be deemed “unemployable” by the Human Resources department at MSNBC.

Get ready to be surprised. Maybe even shocked. Back in 2005 Glenn Beck appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball to promote his book “The Real America: Messages from the Heart and Heartland.”
This was back in the days when Beck was still relatively unknown, long before his CNN TV show and when he still had relatively few affiliates in his radio network. It was also prior to MSNBC’s hard turn to the left.
The interesting thing about this interview is that Beck was still the same Beck we see today on Fox, but Matthews has changed completely.
You won’t believe it until you see it for yourself, and you may not even believe it then, but Matthews gushes over Beck. Repeatedly.
Going into a commercial break he says, “This guy’s a great guy, Glenn Beck. When I come to work really late I listen to the guy coming in to work. Glenn Beck.”
Later Matthews ends the interview by saying, “You’re great. I listen to your show all the time. I think you’re about 30 years older than you are. You’re amazingly smart for such a young guy.”
As Yid With Lid said, “The video below teaches us a little bit about who really has the courage of his convictions, versus who adapts his opinions to please management.”

Media Matters founder David Brock says their advertiser boycott really isn’t working, so it’s up to Sarah Palin to stop Glenn Beck from causing “another Oklahoma City.” Or something.
He’s crazier than hell. Seriously delusional. Watch this interview and tell us if you don’t think he has a loose screw or two.
What’s funny about this video is that it’s being carried prominently at Glenn Beck’s website, TheBlaze.com. Guess he’s not real worried about getting an angry phone call from Sarah.
If you cannot run this video in Firefox, you can try the video here.
This was completely predictable. So we forced ourselves to watch the first ten minutes of Shultz’s MSNBC program on Monday just to see how he tried to spin the abysmal failure of Saturday’s One Nation rally.
And spin he did.
Schultz: Now, conservatives want you to believe that Glenn Beck’s phony religious revival was way bigger than the One Nation rally. Well, let me take you back to the day of the Beck rally on August 28th, 2010, at 6:32 P.M., CBS.com proved Beck’s crowd was, as I said, no big shakes. “An estimated 87,000 people attended the rally organized by radio talk show host and Fox News commentator Glenn Beck Saturday in Washington, according to a crowd estimate commissioned by CBS News. The company, AirPhotosLive.com, based the attendance on aerial photos it took over the rally.” Now to be fair, NBC News put the size of Beck’s crowd at 300,000 people. So, somewhere in between all of this, 87,000, give or take 9 grand by that company, and 300,000 is reported by NBC. Pretty much, would you say that the size of the crowd is pretty much the same? I would. I was there. The people I saw, it was packed.
Step One: Ignore all photographic evidence.
Step Two: Take the lowest possible estimate of attendance at Beck’s rally.
Step Three: Take the highest possible estimate of attendance at the One Nation rally.
Step Four: Attempt to make a valid comparison out of them.
There is, indeed, something packed full here. And it’s name is Ed Schultz.
Isn’t it about time for the CDC to chime in? This mass liberal psychosis is spreading a lot faster than swine flu ever did.
The latest example? Left wing English moron Tina Brown (pardon the triple redundancy), editor of DailyBeast.com, became the latest to fall victim to the disease when she appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday.
Far as we can tell, the psychosis was triggered by the mere mention of the words “Glenn Beck.”
“He’s become sort of the white Malcolm X,” Brown said.
“When you drill down to what he’s actually saying, he calls [Obama] a Nazi and socialist who’s taking over the country. I mean, his language is extremely inflammatory”
Now Glenn Beck is like Malcolm X? And that’s supposed to be some kind of criticism?
For the last 40 years Malcolm X has been deified by the left. Several generations of high school and college students have been required to read his autobiography. He’s been praised as a brilliant leader, as a peaceful revolutionary, as a powerful opponent of racism. And now all of a sudden, now that Glenn Beck has emerged as a conservative leader, being compared to Malcolm X is a negative?
To repeat, WTF?
Turns out that Obama soul mate Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts, is no Glenn Beck fan. Michael Graham of WTKK asked Patrick a simple question and got a surprising answer.
Graham’s question: “Do you have a problem with Glenn Beck having his rally at the Lincoln Memorial?”
Patrick’s response? “It’s a free country. I wish it weren’t.”
Keep in mind that Patrick and Obama have a lot in common. They are both creations of puppet master David Axelrod. Axelrod created similar campaign mantras for both: “Yes We Can” for Obama and “Together We Can” for Patrick.
Oh, one other thing they have in common.
Lousy approval ratings.
Poor Ed Schultz is consumed by jealousy. He can’t stand it that he’s not as popular as Glenn Beck, that Beck’s radio show has a much larger audience than his, that Beck’s TV show audience dwarfs his, and now, that Beck drew 300,000 to the National Mall and he can’t draw flies.
You know it just eats at Ed’s ample gut when he lies awake at night wondering how long it will be until he gets canned by MSNBC and is left with nothing but his sad little radio show.
Schultz: Hold it right there. Before we get to her answer, I could get every union head in this country, I could organize every progressive group in this country, the main bloggers. This could be The Ed March. Folks, 300,000 people on the heels of six months’ promotion, that ain’t no big shakes!
This is no sign that there’s going to be any big turn of events when it comes to the ballot box and that there’ll be no Democrats in the Congress. This is not a tea leaf about, gosh, they’re comin’ in November.
Six months’ promotion, NBC News says 300,000 people. I bet I could do that! I bet I could do that with this radio show and my TV show and six months’ production, six months’ promotion, if I had the budget I could equal that march. I know I could! I know I could….
I guarantee you, I could do more than 300,000! It ain’t a big deal!
Translation: “I’m important. Really, I’m important. Big Ed is just as important as that lesbian chick and that pompous ass. I don’t understand why no one watches my show. And that includes the executives at MSNBC.”
If we were Ed – and we thank god we’re not – we’d be a lot more concerned with getting a bigger radio and TV audience. Because when you’re unemployed, Ed, none of those union guys are going to return your calls.
Hell, they probably return them now.
“It’s Ed Schultz on line 3, Mr. Trumka.”
“Oh, my god. Not him again. Tell him I’m in a very important meeting.”
We really like Glenn Beck, but not to the point that we’d pay $100,000 to see the guy naked.
But apparently Beau Friedlander, who we reported on months ago, has a thing for Beck that has endured unchecked since at least September of last year.
According to an article at Salon.com, “Beau Friedlander had a silly little blog at the Huffington Post in which he promised a $100,000.00 bounty for a Glen Beck sex tape. The post was actually a barely coherent, largely inaccurate history of neoconservatism, plus complaining about Glenn Beck, that ended with a paragraph offering “a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever.” (Friedlander does not actually have this money, which made the whole thing even sillier.)”
Aha! So it’s not some sick desire to see the Beck au natural that inspires Friedlander, it’s a desire to see Beck driven out of the public eye, much as Air America and Friedlander have been?
Adding insult to injury, Salon.com says, “Today, that post is gone! Instead, there is an editor’s note. ‘This piece was published directly to the Huffington Post by its author. It didn’t meet our editorial standards and has been removed from the site.’”
Not up to the editorial standards of the Huffington Post? Is there really such a thing?
Now don’t be confused as to the purpose of the Salon.com story. It was posted not to defend Glenn Beck, but in an attempt to embarrass the Huffington Post, one of its biggest competitors in liberal land. The author actually chastises Friedlander for making the offer, stating that Beck “not only has no shame, but any embarrassing stories about him just fuel the redemption narrative, you moron.”
Now that sounds a lot more like salon.com, doesn’t it?
The clear implication of the liberal media was that most of the people who attended Beck’s rally were white, therefore the event must have been racist.
Here are just a few of the many examples:
“Beck says he and his overwhelmingly white followers ‘are the inheritors and protectors of the civil- rights movement.’” — Ben Adler, Newsweek
“Conservative commentator Glenn Beck and tea party champion Sarah Palin appealed Saturday to a vast, predominantly white crowd on the National Mall to help restore traditional American values and honor Martin Luther King’s message.” — Associated Press
“Many in the predominantly white crowd bent over backward to insist that they are not racists and to note that the crowd was courteous, despite heat and density.” — James Hohmann, Politico
Yet, the liberal media scrupulously avoided terming Sharpton’s rally racist, despite the fact that most of those in attendance were black.
For example, here are photos of Sharpton’s rally from the Washington Post. Nary a white face to be found. Hmmmmmm.
And here’s coverage from PBS. Not a lot of white faces shown in that march, yet two of the three people interviewed by PBS in this clip were white. Seems raaacist to us.
And then there’s this lunatic making this outrageous comment:
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.
Yeah, right. That’ll never happen. The race mongers and liberal media won’t let it.
We wouldn’t want to imply that Al Sharpton’s counter-Glenn Beck rally was a flop, but it only drew 2,000-3,000 people. This despite the fact that Secretary of Education Arne Duncan skirted the law by urging 4,000 of his Washington, DC-area employees to attend.
The Washington Examiner blows the whistle on Duncan’s skirting of the law:
President Obama’s top education official urged government employees to attend a rally that the Rev. Al Sharpton organized to counter a larger conservative event on the Mall.
“ED staff are invited to join Secretary Arne Duncan, the Reverend Al Sharpton, and other leaders on Saturday, Aug. 28, for the ‘Reclaim the Dream’ rally and march,” began an internal e-mail sent to more than 4,000 employees of the Department of Education on Wednesday.
Sharpton created the event after Glenn Beck announced a massive Tea Party “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where King spoke in 1963.
The Washington Examiner learned of the e-mail from a Department of Education employee who felt uncomfortable with Duncan’s request.
Although the e-mail does not violate the Hatch Act, which forbids federal employees from participating in political campaigns, Education Department workers should feel uneasy, said David Boaz, executive vice president of the libertarian Cato Institute.
So let’s picture this: You work for a very powerful man. He sends you a note “suggesting” that you attend a rally. You think about it and decide to blow off that very powerful boss.
One of the most powerful men in Washington, DC “suggested” that 4,000 of his employees attend Al Sharpton’s rally, yet generous estimates say the event drew only 2,000-3,000 people.

Here’s what Martin Luther King said on August 28, 1963:
“I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
And here’s how the Associated Press reported Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally on August 28, 2010:
“Conservative commentator Glenn Beck and tea party champion Sarah Palin appealed Saturday to a vast, predominantly white crowd on the National Mall to help restore traditional American values and honor Martin Luther King’s message.”
A vast, predominantly white crowd? Any word on the content of their character?
Four observations about Ed Schultz’ speech at Al Sharpton’s anti-Beck rally on Saturday:
Sharpton only gave Schultz three minutes, which is all that’s left of his 15 minutes of fame after the liberals are done taxing it.
The media is estimating 2000-3000 attended Sharpton’s counter rally, but swear to god, doesn’t it sound more like 50-100?
The “Yes We Can” chant is beginning to sound a bit pathetic.
Schultz says he’s glad he made the decision as a young man to “get on the bus with the brothers.” Since he was a conservative Republican until the 1990s and didn’t officially become a Democrat until 2000, that would mean he was “on the bus with the brothers” when he was a conservative.
Sorry about the sideways video, but that’s the way it was shot with someone’s camera phone.
Ahhhh, the gentle voices of liberal tolerance and understanding as expressed at Saturday’s Glenn Beck rally in Washington, DC.
Consider this clip in two parts:
In the first part, black tea partiers educate a black Democrat who just couldn’t comprehend why other black people would support Beck and attend the rally.
In the second part we get a white guy who’s baffled by the concept of black and Christian being used as adjectives to describe the same person.
But he’s a liberal, so that’s not racism. It’s enlightenment.

worshipped interviewed by Brian Williams, The Greatest and Most Cerebral President Of All Time explained that he doesn’t pay attention to polls. Because “I can’t spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.”
Say what, Mr. President?
Oh, but the President was just getting started. The MSNBC article also said:
Obama is clearly intent on casting himself as above the political fray, saying American politics is in its “silly season.” For example, he swears he didn’t watch any of Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally on the National Mall yesterday and says he doesn’t find it surprising that “a Glenn Beck can stir up some of the people.”
“I’m making decisions that are not necessarily good for the nightly news and not good for the next election, but for the next generations,” he says.
Obama casting himself as above things? Why that’s not really news now, is it?
We are not quite sure what “a” Glenn Beck is, but somehow Barack Obama managed to make it sound like a bad thing.
Ignoring the voice of the American people and holding himself as somehow above the common, everyday dealings of the unwashed masses has become a hallmark of this administration, if not the guy in charge. Above the political fray, indeed.
If the suits at CNN ever sit down to figure out why no one watches their network anymore, they might want to review their coverage of Glenn Beck’s Saturday rally in Washington, DC.
1. If we’re not mistaken, that’s Glenn Beck, not Sarah Palin
2. Sarah Palin spells her name s-a-r-a-h
3. Sarah Palin was a candidate for Vice President, not President.
Other than that, the weekend crew at CNN did a fine job covering Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally. A damn fine job.

Glenn Beck. Love him or hate him, it’s tough to disagree with him when he describes CNN anchor Rick Sanchez as “quite possibly the dumbest man on television. And that’s saying something because there are some dumb people in television.”
Here’s Beck hilariously riffing on some of Sanchez’ more famous inanities.
George Soros and John Podesta are two exceptionally evil, twisted men. One supplies the money to smear conservatives, the other supplies the strategy.
In this clip, Glenn Beck dissects a video that was produced by Think Progress, the Podesta group that’s funded by Soros, in an attempt to make the Tea Party look racist. He demonstrates the truth as only Glenn Beck can.
Final score: Beck 1, Think Progress 0.
That Glenn Beck, he sure has some crazy conspiracy theories on that show of his, doesn’t he? At least that’s what those on the left seem to think. But one might wonder just how crazy Beck is in light of the current administration’s handling of the Gusher in the Gulf.
Take the moratorium on drilling, for instance. You know, the one that was sold to the American people by employing that age-old political strategy known as “lying like a rug.”
No sooner had a federal judge who apparently possessed more than the required half a brain struck down the moratorium issued by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, a man lacking in both cranial matter and any commitment to the truth, spring into action. According to NBC News, “Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Tuesday he will issue a new order imposing a moratorium on deepwater drilling after a federal judge struck down the existing one.”
