Why Is Glenn Beck Relevant?

Glenn Beck

Is there such a thing as a liberal mainstream media?

The reason we ask is, there is this obvious spate of over-interest in folks like Fox News’ Glenn Beck and former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin. Both have always been known for questionable stunts and inflammatory remarks and yet, the dynamite duo never fails to make political headlines, and furthermore, be taken seriously in national conversations.

    You are looking at the people who will running for president and vice president in 2012. It will be sad if they win, we will all be deported. Personally I wish they both would sit down and be quiet.

  • TimeHater

    wow lexi, I appreciate your political ignorance..so I guess it makes perfect sense that you support GB. Palin and Beck should both crawl back to their respective community colleges and STFD. Their views are nothing more than thinly veiled racist rants, stunts and gross misinformation.

      LEXI WHY DIDNT YOU COMMENT ON THE CLIP ON THE PEOPLE WHO CAME TO RESTORING HONOR…AS A MATTER OF FACT WHO TOLD HIM HE SHOULD BE RESTORING ANY DAMN THING! HIS VIEWS, HIS RANTS ARE A BUNCH OF BOLOX ESPECIALLY TO CALL THE PRES A RACIST. WTF IS GOIN ON HERE HOW COME NOW IS IT OK TO DIS-RESPECT A PRESIDENT…WHY DIDNT NO ONE ON TV CALL RAGEAN A RACIST.

    He’s relevant because the progressives message is not relevant and does not ring true in these four areas.

    1. All problems can be solved with more government money

    2. Victimization – Treating able bodied adults like children.

    3. The man is not needed in the home.

    4. Everything conservative is bad for you and everything liberal is good for you.

    • lexi

      agree!
      1.can’t to replace can!

  • imjustsayin

    lol if gleen or palin runs for president obama is winning and im willing to bet alot of things on that
    they gotta alot of supporters but that got alot of people who also know the dangers of then being in the white house
    not going to happen
    and they got popular the same way crack and jerry springer did in the 90s
    a bunch of baffonery and tad bit of entertainment for other fellow right wing nut jobs but no real substance

  • if anything be noble

    … but I wonder if telling his followers that their leader made 32 million dollars last year would change their minds…

    • imjustsayin

      lol exactly i dont why any body would take what this man has to say seriously when he makes that much money just tellin those idiots what they wanna hear..
      and how much does palin get just for just one apperance?

    He’s relevant because he says what a growing number of Americans are feeling whether your a personal fan of his or not.

    That comment by ‘Keep It Real at 2:21’ is possibly the realest thing i ever read on this site…they completely hit the nail on the head.

  • http://lukescorner.net LukesCorner

    If the scenarios were flipped, Black media figure organizing a huge rally wit all the same principles as Beck’s and the President was White…that figure would be hailed as a God in the Black community. Keep drinkin the Kool Aid of the ‘Messiah; and ignore the fact he’s dug a bigger financial hole for this country in 1 year than Bush did in 8….pure ugly fact right there

  • Chee-Chee

    …Beck and others like him will be trying their hardest to regain control in 2012 and it looks like a high possibility…

  • if anything be noble

    I keep clicking on this story to look at his picture.

  • tellthetruth

    He’s relevant because the ignorance posted on these black sites make him relevant. Blacks don’t like each other and you all prove it.

    • John

      @ tellthetruth

      MAN! you are soooooooo!! right! and that sad that that we knock our own people down.

    They are taken seriously and clung too because these are desperate times. In other times in the past, during plagues for instance, priests would blame one woman in the village for all the deaths and spread of the disease. It was “the devil” inside the woman. Glenn Beck and Sara Palin pander scare tactics to the same types of vulnerable, gullible people. A little common sense on the part of the believers is all it would take to stop the brain washing, but it’s easier to not think and follow blindly for the sheepeople.

  • tally ho

    it republicans are going to put forward mitt romney he has been laying low. and ol 2 faced scott brown since he is a bonifided red state man…. mark my words.

  • TimeHater

    lexi please, you couldn’t keep up with me politically if you have James Carvel and and the entire cast of “meet the press” with you. Don’t pester the people above you educationally and most likely financially above you with your doltish dribble.

    • lexi

      but you still ain’t say nothing. Attacking me is only making you a fool. Callin people names and not knowing why~ just tells me I’m right! F OFF LOSER~ or try again.

  • Elena

    He’s relevant because not only he knows how to use shock value, but he also stand for what most people perceive to be wrong.

    He’s like a political Lady GaGa.

  • cotton124

    This guy really need to preach to rush to get off drugs. And also to his tea parties on the gulf coast. High homeowner ins. Rates thats high way robbery to all races. And yet all he talks about is war so sad. This guy is not at all what I stand for.

  • Cougar_Lover

    they give this dude a script and he goes with the flow. i hate “scripted news” where everybody has the same views on every subject.

  • lexi

  • Glok ...PuzzyCatya,...Meow !!!

    GO LICK HIS RIGHT WINGED NUTZ PANSY !!

  • sommer

    Ok I missed the show where he actually act like he had a brain. He is a racist and everyone but you know it.

  • Britt

    I don’t think Glenn Beck is even intelligent enough to know what racism is talk more him being a racist. He is just an ignorant opportunist who spews out empty rhetoric and deluded conspiracy theories to those that possess even less intelligence than he does. This is a man with ADHD who failed out of high school then dropped out of college and had a drug problem. Yet now he’s some sort of leader talking about theology? I doubt he can even spell theology talk more explain it.

    @ lexi
    You cannot depend on a person who has an extreme political slant, whether it be to the left or to the right, to give an unbiased account of history; Glen Beck has a far right slant. Do your own RESEARCH, READ your own BOOKS, and form your own opinions instead of believing every word that comes out of someone’s mouth. News media only tries to bait you into joining one side or the other FOR RATINGS. You cannot trust FOX or CNN; you cannot trust Beck, O’reilly, or Al Sharpton to give you an unbiased truth. READ every book that you can get your hands on, and then YOU DECIDE! Glen Beck’s followers only put more money in his pocket. You are playing into his hands. WAKE UP! Trust your own knowledge first; Do not be decieved. Do not allow ignorance to destroy you or your people. Be enlightened!
