my theory: because he isnt a liberal
Because he is right
Because he cares and loves his country
We don't hate Glenn Beck. We are amused by him for one reason alone, he appears to be nuts.
yes, I guess to a communist he does appear nuts. I can see that.
They hate him because he is dangerous. When he goes after an individual, he makes damned sure he has verifiable facts to back up what he says. He has a pretty good research team behind him. Millions of people watching him simply because he comes across as a decent, and flawed, man. American like decent, flawed, people. Because mainly we are decent, flawed, people. So they relate to him. He is the epitome of what we admire - a self made man who has made mistakes, put them right, admitted them and used his experience to make him a better human being.
One has to understand Glen Beck. He doesn't take his opportunity to express his feelings about America lightly. Beck knows what Americans want to hear about and Americans know that Beck has got their back. NO OTHER HOST OF ANY SHOW CAN CLAIM THIS....NOT A SINGLE ONE. He is the ONLY news commentator who has COMMON SENSE and isn't beholden to anyone on the right OR left. In my book...Beck is a class act. When I watch his show I know that I will hear about things that are important to thinking Americans who are tired of the bullshit coming from Washington.
Right. The Left HATES Glenn Beck. The Left FEARS Sarah Palin.
Justifications to ward off the truth. The Conservative desperately want to believe this HATE and FEAR mantra. While the truth is closer to PITY and DISMISS.
Beck is a classic fear monger in the Morton Downey, Jr./Father Coughlin mold. They precise kind of demagogue the Conservatives have always been drawn to. Laughably ignorant, this variety of 'pundit' appeals to those who know deep down that their political stances are on shaky social grounds and untenable economic grounds. Letting the insurance companies, for example, continue to raise premiums, deny service and raise premiums just to avoid what they wish to call "Socialism" is a great example of how untenable the Conservative stance is.
Conservatives equate "freedom' with exploitation; "liberty" with profit and "Capitalism" with mercantilism. They think Sarah 'the quitter' Palin is qualified intellectually and practically to run the United States of America!
The Left neither hates nor fears the champions of the Right. We pity them and are incredulous as to why they are popular with what we hope are decent, smart people on the Right.
Beck is very good at what he does. Appealing to a simplistic love America but hate Americans viewership
The Republicans took talk radio away from liberals....now they are taking television away from liberals and soon the internet will be taken away also.
Oh..by the way...check Beck's ratings...they are going up up up.....once again progressivism will be relegated to the trash heap of politics where it belongs.
No, Beck is a Boat Rocker. He doesn't monger fear, he asks questions. That the questions are too hard for the government to answer honestly is not his fault. That blame lies squarely in Washington....
Beck hammered Bush too. No lefties whined about him then - so why all of a sudden is he the bad guy? LOL.
LOL at the Palin shit - Palin is, I am sure, a nice person but qualifed to govern this country - OVER MY COLD, DEAD, BODY!
No, you are right, we are all terrified at the power and mind of Glenn Beck. You've caught us.
