Glenn Beck is a real piece of work, the guy is unhinged.

Tonight, Glenn Beck responded to news that philanthropist George Soros had made his first donation to Media Matters by once again vilifying Soros, the Tides Foundation, and a host of progressive organizations, while portraying Beck as the target of a Soros-ordered hit.
Launching into a positively unhinged diatribe against what he called "shadowy" and "spooky" organizations, Beck likened a Media Matters press release announcing Soros' $1 million contribution to a "wanted dead or alive poster" and called it a "million dollar bounty." Beck also said, "Mr. Soros, let me just tell you something. If I happen to fall -- what was that movie where the guy fell out of the window at the end? ... If anything happens to me, what is it the people at the Tides Foundation are saying right now? Oh, yeah. That's right. I love this phrase. Blood will be on your hands, sir. One million dollar bounty."
Beck has a history of suggesting that Soros would have him killed. On June 21, while detailing his discredited conspiracy theory that the Obama administration's drilling moratorium is part of a plot to enrich Soros through increased oil drilling in Brazil , Beck said, "Gasoline Brazil. Now why am I telling you about this? Have you heard of another word? Soros. George Soros.I do have a bulletproof car, George. I just want you to know."

I saw Beck's show today and he didn't go ballistic. Media Matters of course HAS TO SAY He DID.

What a bunch of boloney.

I saw the first half hour, and nothing Beck said or did even resembled "ballistic".

A bunch of baloney is right.

Glenn Beck is a real piece of work, the guy is unhinged.
I started out 10 years ago not caring much for Glenn but mostly because I knew how he made the leap from dick Jockey to talk show host.

Today I I have to admit that I envy his research staff and their ability to get to the facts and the truth.

Had I been attacked by a Radical Billionaire like Soros I too would have dug up all the dirt I could and blast the scum bag with both barrels.

Today if you tell the truth about Obama and his Marxist plans to destroy America you are the one who is attacked by the mentally challenged who have been brain washed by Obama and the Obamedia propagandists such as those one MSNBC.

I was talking with my best friend about Liberals and we have come to the conclusion that the school system has become nothing more the huge Liberal indoctrination centers teaching Marxism Socialism and Communism leaving out that all of these ideologies have failed every single time they have been tried.

Beck has come at the right time but unfortunately Liberals have a problem thinking for themselves and it can be seen in their name calling and use of the same talking points and obfuscation tactics over and over until they have become predictable.

Hat's off to beck and the Liberals need to keep lying about him because it drives his rating on TV and radio and that makes it more likely that a few Liberals will learn to think for themselves and realize the Trifecta of Doom, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, are Anti-Americans.

Not so you say? Well if you can read and comprehend what you read go here and read about Obama: The Marxist Roots of Black Liberation Theology | Acton Institute

Or you can just watch. I checked this and it all real.

That is what you call a "well founded" criticism of Obama based on his own words, and the words and professed beliefs of the people he has surrounded himself with and embraces to this day.

Great post.

He sure is. But as slimey as Beck is, why on earth does he think Soros wants him dead? I mean look at all the free advertising Beck keeps giving him. LOL


Nah, Beck is feeling <sniffle> threatened because Soros donated money to his main nemisis, Media Matters. Waaaa. But hey, there wouldn't be a need for Media Matters if Beck wasn't relentlessly persecuting, smearing and lying about the Left. So Beck is just getting back what he dishes out. So if he doesn't like it, then maybe he should stop doing it.

What exactly did Soros ever do to Beck?

Speaking of indoctrination, you do know that Beck is Bircher, right? And you do know that Birchers are extremists, right? I just thought I should mention it, cuz with all that Marxist crap your spewing, you sound just like someone who has been indoctrinated into the John Birch Society's cult.

Soros is a liberal, you do know liberals are extremists, right?

I can make up labels and attach bogus definitions too.

If Beck supports rich people funding political stuff, I don't see where he has the room to be outraged. :shrug:

So the appropriate response is to bring up conspiracy theories about how they might try to kill him?

He sounded like a nut to me... He's been playing up this martyr angle for way to long.

I tend to think something has happened behind the scenes that Beck isn't saying yet which is why he sounds like a nut to you. He has said that he's received many death threats which is why he has to have security with him at all times when he's in public.

Beck was a little more worked up than usual, but far from going ballistic.
Listen folks, we are in danger of losing free speech. This should concern all of us and not just conservatives.

Media Matters was the one to go ballistic on Glenn Beck because Beck has been exposing Soros for quite some time and Soros is fighting back behind the scenes with his $500,000 Dlls. donation to Media Mattters.
The Left media wants to silence Beck but it will be imposible to do so.
