Do you like Glenn Beck and why?

I do. That doesnt mean I trust him. Id compare it to cops. I like cops.. but I dont really trust them.

Ive been listening to him since 02 and must say that he has changed more times than a rainbow chameleon. He has gotten older and wiser.

I like him because he has a sympathetic ear to our cause.. now. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. We are lucky enough to have the guy partially in our corner. Now that he is so popular, his every word is being examined under a microscope.

Im willing to see how this plays out with an open mind instead of calling him names and believing he is an enemy to us.

holy cow..

I really did not expect this much of a response! I guess Beck touches a real nerve.

I am on the fence. Even though he works for the MSM he doesnt pull many punches to anybody.. even Paul. Im not condoning what he said and portrayed us in 2007.. but its 2009 and he is more sympathetic to our side for a reason.

We are right and he knows it.

Look at it like this.. Imagine if he continues to support Rand and Schiff? How can that really hurt our movement? Especially considering he may sway conservative voters in KY and CT.

Im going to see how it plays out before I spew venom towards him. Screw FOX though.. I will never forget or forgive them for censoring Paul in NH and his best statement during the debates: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlacFmRGPgI

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Beck is a media personality...

That's all and nothing else. His credibility should aways be questioned given his recent past and sudden change of heart. What he is trying to do is get more viewers. He does not care about the movement or individual liberties. He'll say anything to get viewers to listen to him and he's sees lots of potential in our movement given the enthusiasm. Should something happen for the worse to our movement, his tone would change immediately. He'll say something like- I knew there was something wrong about these guys but I truly wanted to believe in them. (I truly believe he would do this!)

I am surprised others are taking a liking to him. Don't fall for the BS. Mainstream media should always be questioned regardless of the source. Once you have read enough information from different angles, then you can make your own opinion.


I remember how rude he was at the start of the campaign.

Glenn Beck in perspective

Let's put Glenn Beck in perspective.

Hannity, Ingraham, Maulkin, Levin are openly antagonistic toward RP.
Bill O'reilly and Glenn Beck were labeled demagogues by RP. Beck has worked his way off this list, while O'reilly surely remains on it.
Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage treat RP like evil Lord Voldemort, the name that can not be mentioned.

On our side to varying degrees are: Beck, Cavuto, Scarborough, Buchanan, Will, Napolitano, Hannan, and some others.

From the discussions on DP, I wager many of us don't agree on anything except RP! And that is the great thing about Liberty.

BECK has given Ron Paul many appearances on his show. I wish BECK would shut up and listen more, but it is his show and we should take advantage of any useful idiots.

Don't forget Libertarian John Stossel

I can't wait to hear his Anti-War message on FOX!

"In September 2009, it was announced that Stossel will be leaving ABC News and joining Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. He will be hosting a one-hour weekly program for Fox Business Network and a series of one-hour specials for Fox News Channel, as well as making regular guest appearances on Fox News programs. The reporter's program entitled "Stossel," will debut in the fourth quarter of 2009 in Fox Business’s prime-time lineup. The program will look at consumer-focused topics, such as civil liberties, the business of health care and free trade. His blog, "Stossel’s Take," will be published on both FOXBusiness.com and FOXNews.com"

You like cops?

Why? They are the state's enforcers. Nothing but thugs who enforce theft. The government is evil. They enslave you, steal from you, imprison you and kill you. The cops are the enforcers. They are like the bonebreakers and hitmen of the mafia. I hate cops. No such thing as a good cop as they all enforce theft.

Some cops

will even tell you how to deal with other cops. They are not all bad. There are some who are as disgusted as you are with the system.

I disagree. They are all bad

I disagree. They are all bad because they enforce the theft by gov't from the people. Gov't is all about theft by force. Cops are the "force."

He brings people in so they can go deeper.

BIG BOOM! Wow, so thats how we got here.

I wish him well

but find him annoying.

I don't have as low an opinion of him as spiritual author Marianne Williamson, who recently wrote on her blog:

Glenn Beck is a psychological and emotional terrorist, and it's time to spiritually quarantine him before he does any more harm. Here's how you do it:

Every day, pray for Beck's happiness for five minutes. Then meditate on this image:

1. See him sitting within a golden egg......


I like him, but you have to

I like him, but you have to watch him like a hawk. I think for right now he's conveying a good message but since he's owned by Murdoch, I'd be particularly careful of lies wrapped in truth, and I can almost guarantee that no matter how "wacky" he gets, he will never mention Bilderberg.

I think you can count on him to be 99% there. But he will never be completely 100% enlightened.

Beck was getting pounded on Morning Joe this morning.

They were even bringing in Timothy McVeigh, and insinuating that it was the hatred of Clinton, and all the right wing criticism that insighted him.

I predict Beck will end up going the way of Imus, within the next year. So like I said, I like some ofthe things he does, he is entertaining to watch, and probably catches some peoples attention. He also brings alot of authoritarian reactionaries into the movement, so its a mixed blessing - I'd rather see the Judge in his spot.

Did you know Zbigniew Brzezinski's daughter

Mika is the co-host of that show?

I wonder how that affects the content. Her father, being a megalomaniac, must have some say in it.

Yeah -though I think she takes after her mom

Since she doesn't seem too smart.

The show is not that influential, so I 'll bet he doesn't care so much.

Its way easier just to kill us when we become a problem, right ?

I don't trust him



I'm on the fence about him.

I don't get that ultra angry reaction that some here get because he's getting better and he allows Napolitano to work as guest host when he's not there and he allows good guests to come on.

I also don't trust him to endorse a good candidate either though. I can see him endorsing Palin or someone. Actually I am willing to bet he endorses someone dumb again. He's also not anything close to a libertarian.

That's why I say fence.

I like watching his guest host more than him.

I like Glenn for the same reasons I like Obama...

They are both so obviously corrupt and dishonest that finally America is awakening and coming together ... Black...White...Youth...Eldery all for one or other cause associated with present politic ( which they both push ).

Thank you Obama...
Thank you Glenn...

It took things getting this bad...this evil...this rediculas to awaken the sheeple and these clowns were just the ticket to push things over the line in the sand.

glenn beck is

sometimes right on! and sometimes he's satan.

One more time...

Network tv is a propaganda vehicle. It caters to the duopoly- leans left or right- but the "left or right" is actually the same coin...like pro wrestling. ANYthing you see on television is what they WANT you to see. When some topics become general knowledge- they let the "omg this is too crazy for tv- youre going to get fired!!" personalities like Beck or whoever, preach a watered down version of it. Trust me- the shadowy dark lords arent sitting at a long table worried that Beck is going to spill the beans- they give him his "edgy"talking points. TV= PROPAGANDA. INTERWEBS= TRUE NEWS ( but ya gotta sift through it) the DP is a good place to separate good internet information from BS. but TV is ALL MAKE BELEIVE...even Beck.

That was a good story, Jinc.

The media are capitalists and sell what people want, for the most part. I use to believe like you until my brother who worked for a somewhat major news service told me how it works. There are many factors in why news agencies do what they do: personal bias, groupthink, monetary incentive, personal incentive, etc. You see the world in black and white because it is easily understandable. Expand your mind.

do i like beck?

i could take him or leave him.
i do like he is tying up the left for us, putting them on the defensive.
i like he has attempted to introduce the constitution into the conversation among the neocons, this is our opening.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

I like the fact

that Beck is introducing some concepts that many haven't really ever heard about or gotten that much air time in the mainstream media. However, I have a gut feeling about the guy and just don't trust him one bit. None of this stuff is going to be getting put on air if there wasn't an agenda as to why. As rhino says

i'm willing to not give a crap.

in 10 years, no one will care about glen beck.

he won't even be remembered as the guy who stabbed the liberty movement in the back.

he's a movie of the week.

let's move forward.

Why are we giving Glenn Beck

Why are we giving Glenn Beck all this posting space and free advertising? He has proven over and over that he is not to be trusted.

Glenn Beck is opening millions of minds to the unworthiness

of Republicans and Democrats alike, and largely for reasons we agree with. He has become an 800-lb. gorilla in our corner of the ring. Only time will tell if he is truly becoming libertarian but in the meantime it might help if we didn't act like assholes ourselves and give him some encouragement instead of constant grief.

I realize that I am really, really OLD but I swear, some of the people who post here on Glenn Beck I'd like to jab with their own diaper pins!

I need to find out what OLD category I am in; really OLD, r,r OLD or the dreaded really, really, really OLD.

In my book you barely squeaked into really OLD. And since the position of DP Secretary(Csar?) of Age is open I have nominated and confirmed myself for the position. Thus I speak with great authority on the matter. My preferred Age category had no influence on my decision.

P.S. Just looked at your Blog. Like it. I have some professional background on those subjects. I imagine you can guess(easily) where I learned such things. Are you familiar with taking an Air Bath/Shower?
