I was going to comment on Glenn Beck's good attributes, but there are none, so I can't.

Nevermind.

Where is the outrage? An 89 year old woman (Helen Thomas) says something offensive about Jews and all sorts of people and organizations called for her to retire or be fired. Glen Beck spews this crap on a daily basis -- where is the outrage? Why not a call to boycott all businesses that advertise on Fox News? Glen Beck's continuous spewing of hatred is much more damaging that one old woman's remarks. I am not defending Ms. Thomas's statement, but it certainly was an aberation instead of her normal spiel.
Glen Beck is one evil a-hole and it would be a good thing for America if he didn't have a national outlet for his ugliness. Glen Beck and his ilk are a danger to our country. They promote hatred and divisiveness. And, God help us, too many people have drunk the Koolaid and believe these haters.
Glen Beck is unpatriotic in the extreme. He doesn't mind what he stirs up or whether is it harmful to the good of our country.
Where is the outrage?

That's just it, there isn't any measurable levels of outrage outside of the Democratic Party and outside of virtually all xtian churches.
10:13 AM on 06/08/2010
So, the ONLY place there IS outrage is the dumbascrap party and virtually all Christian Churches? Sorry, gotta flag that one. Christian Churches aren't outraged by Beck, at all. So that leaves you the dumbascrap party. Well duh? They are the ones that Beck is skewering.

the outrage is in my living room. my absolute horror that this country has not denounced these hatemongers, that republicans refuse to distance themselves from the votes these evil people will bring them from 'main street', has reached such a crescendo that i now fear for the future of America. the hate being spewed across tv, radio, print and the internet is building daily into a shameful and politically powerful movement that threatens any real patriotic american. and they go on and on. the lies and bigotry and outright racist speech is being protected and embraced throughout this country. hate has now become acceptable and mainstream. it is everywhere. as i watch the people expected to win elections to lead our government, i fear this hate will spread and be used even more openly to suppress those who disagree with the ideology. we should all fear these freaks and those who support them.

Hey Griffin, HAve you ever read Dilling? Her antisemitism is blatant, but in your rush to defend that id10t Beck, you have ignored the facts and blamed the messenger.

You Beckers only seem to know one tune, and you sing it badly!

Now all the real Facists and real Nazis are feeling secure enough to come out from under the rocks that they have been hiding under so far, and live their hatred in the open. Currently, it's only verbally, but soon they - or some of them - might start to act out on that hatred.
The script is indeed the same as it was in the 1930's, so expect street fights soon.

Communism? Where, when, how? Capitalism has defeated 'Communism' in 1989 or so the US claims, so what you are seeing now must be the result of Capitalism. It's the sole remaining socio-economic system.
Now you want to blame your Capitalist failures onto a non-existing Communism. Lame!

I have watched/listened to Beck.
He has been looking for the truth.
He has played on his show the audio tape of when the Isreal army contacted the flotilla and told them to turn back, the response from the "PEACE" ship-"Go back to Auschwitz" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxY7Q7CvQPQ
He has spoken about the anti-jewish hate speech over and over again on his program,
It really bothers me that alot of the "Hate" I see or read is mostly on this site, or others like it.
How do you ever expect to "change' the world, when most of your answers revolve around tearing people down?
Listen to Beck for a week/ or better yet watch his TV show for a whole week-
If you will not, ask yourself "Why?" What are you afraid of?
Something is very wrong, has been for along time- fighting and name calling isnt going to fix it-Just remember this-The people who work 50-60 hrs a week, that are not in a union, do not get paid overtime-can not take vacation or days off when they want-get called at 2 am or on Saturdays, sundays-dont get breaks from the government, dont get breaks for college for their kids-we are all tired-sick and tired-We have nothing left to give, when we start checking out, and scaling back, WHO is going to pay for everything?

I have watched Glenn Beck for a week, and I am afraid Beck is sponsoring terrorism. Glenn Beck aired a fantasy Poison Pelosi skit during a time when teabaggers carried protest signs with terrorist threats, ballot box or bullet box, brown or browning, water the tree of liberty, etc. Glenn Beck has likened Obama to Adolph Hitler, because we all know how Hitler attempted to make sure little Jewish and minority children got government healthcare. If fighting and namecalling, and death-threats aren't going to fix anything, why is Beck doing all of those things? Glenn Beck even hoodwinks his audience into buying gold "clad" coins with less than $1 worth of gold as an investment vehicle, yet Glenn is still the Captain of the Teabaggers. Glenn Beck likes to have it both ways like all teabaggers, defending Israeli Government on their atrocities, while accusing Jewish people for being responsible for Hitlers rise. Beck complains about Big Govt while he advocates a loss of due process, torture of innocents, nation-building wars, governmental snooping without probable cause, bascially everything wrong that the KGB did to its own people. Glenn Beck's utopia is exactly what North Korea has, a blowhard who thinks he talks to God and dictates based on divine providence. If Tim McVeighs actions were turned into words, they would be coming out of Glenn Beck's mouth.

Glenn Beck is a Nazi loving anti-Semite? I've actually watched his TV show twice in the last week and I got just the opposite impression. He devoted nearly an entire hour in defense of Israel and their stopping of the flotilla that was trying to break the blockade (something no other commentator did). In the other show I watched he took Helen Thomas to task for comments stating that the Jews should get out of Palestine and go to Poland and Germany. These are not exactly the acts of Nazi loving anti-Semite. He also had an hour long show on recently that featured our nation's black founding fathers. Not the acts of racist and once again an act I haven't seen from liberal commentators.

Beck's nutty chalkboard stuff is pretty damn weird. His repeated use of guilt by association is rather pathetic (he's a member of SEIU, and they work for the Soros Foundation, their all socialist, and they're all linked to Pres. Obama, blah, blah, blah). However, one thing the guy isn't is a Nazi loving anti-Semite or a racist. Making these kinds of accusations say more about the name caller than it does about Glenn Beck. I don't like it when the right does this crap and I really hate to see liberals stoop to these kind of tactics.
09:30 AM on 06/08/2010
Very well thought out and intelligent commet. Thank you. I wish all commenters would know what they are talking about before spouting off. Glenn does have some "out there" ideas, but much of what he has said in the past has bared fruit. I'm just saying the gentleman that has written this article knows nothing about Beck or what his message is. A competant journalist or writer would research the comments or item they are reporting on, this obviously did not happen in this case. Beck is not an anti-semite or nazi or racist, I think this says more about the accusers than the accused. JMHO

Understand, that by promoting the work of an unapologetic and proud antisemite, who also was as paranoid and insane as Beck pretends to be, would tend to counteract any defense of Israel.

Or was he defending Israel's act of piracy? There is indeed a difference.

Beck is insane, he talks about unconditionally supporting Israel no matter what war crimes it commits, and stirs up his neo-con base to rally behind Israel at all cost. Then he talks about Jewish communist conspiracies and promotes rabid antisemitism. If this is what he says I can only imagine how scary his thoughts must be. I imagine they're something along the lines of wanting Muslims and Jews in the Middle East to be in a constant state of escalating warfare so they wipe each other out and once their gone America can inherit oil and the holy land in one fell swoop.

How about the airing of a tape he claimed was the radio contact between the blockade and the flotilla? AFTER even Israel debunked it.

Better yet, the praise he heaped on to Dilling, an unapologetic N@zi sympathizer and hater of all things Jewish, claiming that her book was: "from people who were doing what we're doing now. We now are documenting who all of these people are."

Dilling became a full-throated supporter of the N@zis who reportedly attended party meetings in Germany and pro-N@zi rallies in the United States.

She blamed "revolutionary Russian Jews" for Germany's "Final Solution" and attributed the anti-Semitic nature of German fascism in part to "the large number of revolutionary Russian Jews in Germany":

From "The Red Network":
"Un-Christianized" "colored people" are "savages" who owe success to Christian whites.

Or better still:
"Negroes are urged to fight their white "oppressors," who actually have freed them and given them better jobs and opportunities than exist in Africa. [Page 55]"

Dilling is an unapologetic racist and antisemitic, by praising her book, Beck implies agreement with her philosophy.

Proof enough?

the fact that he 'converted' to a church that suppresses women, forces members to pay for the priveledge of going to 'temple', spends millions suppressing an entire group of people when children are dying daily, and engages in protected, secretive 'worship', should have been a huge clue.

If I buy and read or tell others they should read Adolf Hitler's book doesn't make me a Nazi supporter. Maybe I want to gain insight as to why he believed he needed to murdered thousands of jews. Beck is urging his audience to read the book to educate themselves on events and movements that occurred in our history so they won't happen again. He is not an Anti-Semite.
09:17 AM on 06/08/2010
Of all the books he could have recommended on the subject of Communism in post war America from legitimate scholars (including the Metrokhin Archive, for example), he decides to endorse a work from a neo-Nazi? Doesn't that strike you as odd? He could have been on safer ground even talking about Whittaker Chambers' stuff, for example, but no, he goes for a tome from someone who called Kennedy's "New Frontier" "The Jew Frontier."

Sorry, but your defense of Beck on this is weaker than Taco Bell's hot sauce.

Correct Marty, However, Beck is NOT urging his viewers to read the book to gain insight.

If, as you say Beck promoted Mein Kampf, and praised it as a patriotic work and suggested that the book is "From people who were doing what we're doing now. We now are documenting who all of these people are."

That changes the timbre of your premise entirely.

Beside, Beck is not a literary review show......

I don't think he's an anti-semite. I just think he didn't do a google search on the woman before promoting her on his show. It'll be interesting to see if he bothers to reconsider his glowing praise, though.

Seriously? Huff readers remind me of an Ostrich with head buried deep in sand. "If I don't watch Glenn Beck, then I won't know the truth and can continue to rant ignorantly about his views! More sand please..."

For anyone who wants a reality check, Beck is one of the most out-spoken supporters of protecting Jewish rights and sovereignty. Huffers are truly laughable.

Actually like most rabid neo-cons Beck promotes Israel the state, not the Jewish people. This is because he wants someone to do America's dirty against the Muslims in the Middle-East, not because he has any love of the Jewish people. Maybe you should be the one to take your head out of the sand.

Beck is only Pro-Jewish to the extent he is Anti-Muslim. I say this as a Jewish American. For every pro-Jewish, pro-Israel comment he's made, he also throws several more referencing "bilderbergs", "international monetary fund", and, my personal favorite, "international bankers". Give me a break.
