So is that the reason why you attended his political rally?

You people still don't know the truth about Glenn Beck.  It is obvious you people are repeating what you have heard.  

These K----s are so in the tank for their liberal/socialist/communist puppet masters.

You are so correct.  These K----s never knew that Glenn Beck was never about politics.  Glenn Beck is about making money.  Glenn Beck is nothing but a prostitute for money.  It was never about politics.  If liberals and democrats had waved more money in front of him he would've spouted liberal propaganda.  

So now you calling people K----s. Wow, you are just so smart.  ::)

No one but you could fathom that much of Becks antics was just for money, attention and ratings.  ::)

You told us to look it up. Where would we have found that opinionated theory.

What a joke -- it wasn't about politics.  Even if your theory is absolutely correct, it was still about politics.  Even if he was only using politics as a means to an end  - to say it was never about politics is ludicrous and completely inaccurate.

BTW, I seriously doubt that you and Oldsport were on the same page.  ::)

Who am I kidding?  I loved the news.  He was out of control in my opinion.  I thought that he was in it for the money.  He has made a lot of money.  I will not lose any sleep over what has happened to Glenn Beck.  He has a lot of cash in the bank.

Yeah EB y04185 is so ..........   :no: I try not to call people names or toss around insults.

Wildman,

This statement of THE OBVIOUS is what passes for insight from y04!!!
 :lmao: :lmao:

It is truly sad.  I mean pi-ti-ful-ly SAD!!

This is why intelligent Conservatives avoid these lame-brain characters.  Guilt by association.

TWIN, SEND HELP!!!!

Funck, Jack Gravely has a great show.  No call screening.  It's called 'The Grand Central Station of Talk.'  

Wildman, Glenn Beck was never about politics.  Read 'em and weap.

It's amazing you people had no problem with him when he was with CNN.

I doubt that he was spouting over the top-far fetched conspiracy theories when he was on CNN either. However, I don't recall watching him when he was on CNN.

He was about politics. He discussed politics and political idealogy to make money. He held a political rally for goodness sake. How anybody can say he wasn't about politics (especially given the broad connotation of the phrase politics) is simply beyond me.  Oh yeah, he was a poltical comment but he wasn't about politics. Glenn Edward Lee Beck (born February 10, 1964) is an American conservative radio and television host, author, entrepreneur, and political commentator

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_beck

Political views:

Beck has described himself as a conservative with libertarian leanings. Among his core values Beck lists personal responsibility, private charity, the right to life, freedom of religion, limited government, and family as the cornerstone of society. Beck believes in low national debt, and has said "A conservative believes that debt creates unhealthy relationships. Everyone, from the government on down, should live within their means and strive for financial independence." He supports individual gun ownership rights and is against gun control legislation.

Beck believes that there is a lack of evidence that human activity is the main cause of global warming. He holds that there is a legitimate case that global warming has, at least in part, been caused by mankind, and has tried to do his part by buying a home with a "green" design.He also views the American Clean Energy and Security Act as a form of wealth redistribution, and has promoted a petition rejecting the Kyoto Protocol.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_beck

In any event, your so called revelation that Beck was only in it for the money in no way affects the validity of any comment made by by any poster prior to you posting your so-called revelation.

Man please. Go on 'head with that nonsense.

I'm glad Fox fired Glenn Beck and if he didn't actually believe the nonsense he was spouting, I'm doubly glad they fired him. That would just make him all the more distasteful in my book.

Wildman,

Thank you, Sir, for taking the time to completely debunk and deconstruct y04's foolishness.

As to:  "I doubt that he was spouting over the top-far fetched conspiracy theories when he was on CNN either. However, I don't recall watching him when he was on CNN."

I DID watch Beck on CNN - a lot - and if there ever was a Jekyll and Hyde, it is him.  A completely different guy - in terms of his content.

y04's out of context comment that some didn't have a problem with him then would be like saying that we as a people preferred the Repub Party in the 1860's, so we should NOW prefer them because we did THEN - no matter if they have changed.

Oh, snap........... that IS what he says!!!!

Another example of illogical, non-contextual thinking.

Check out this explanation by co-founder of ColorOfChange.org of their effort to urge a boycott of advertisers of Beck's show.

Your choice: transcript, video or audio -
http://www.democracynow.org/seo/2011/4/8/the_fall_of_glenn_beck_did

He says that hundreds of advertisers left.

Others say that the key element was that Roger Ailes asked Beck to chill a bit and he didn't and that other personalities at Fox were concerned that Beck, with his wild conspiracy theories (e.g., American Liberals and Islamic extremists are behind the recent uprising in the Arab world), was becoming the "face" of Fox and that was detrimental to their self-professed goal of being a credible news source.

This is a valid concern because, ask y04, "Personnel is policy."

Another take on why the Beckster is no longer a Foxster.
Quote
When Beck’s show made its debut on Fox News Channel in January 2009, the nation was in the throes of an economic collapse the likes of which had not been seen since the 1930s. Beck’s angry broadcasts about the nation’s imminent doom perfectly rode the wave of fear that had washed across the nation, and the relatively unknown entertainer suddenly had 3 million viewers a night — and tens of thousands answering his call to rally at the Lincoln Memorial.

But as the recession began to ease, Beck’s apocalyptic forecasts and ominous conspiracies became less persuasive, and his audience began to drift away. Beck responded with a doubling-down that ultimately brought about his demise on Fox.

He pushed further into dark conspiracies, urging his viewers to hoard food in their homes and to buy freeze-dried meals for sustenance when civilization breaks down. He spun a conspiracy theory in which the American left was in cahoots with an emerging caliphate in the Middle East. And, most ominously, he began to traffic regularly in anti-Semitic themes.

Are you guys done with your celebration? I hope so because I have some bad news for you. If you have been paying attention.....which obviously you haven't....Glenn Beck was not FIRED from FOX. His show was cancelled but he is still working for FOX and is going to do specials on relevent news stories. If you really want to know how Beck thinks....read his book "Broke" that will give you a hint of what he's about. But....I doubt seriously if any of you care.....you'd rather say things you have no clue about. GO VIKINGS!!!

 :lol:  You are right I could really care less how Beck thinks. Hopefully his specials won't be similar to those over the top conspiracy theories that  caused his show to be cancelled.
