I am convinced there are two different Glenn Becks.
The one that does the radio show and the website are relatively sane and level-headed, sometimes funny, irrevverant, usefully informative, and makes a lot of friends.
The one that does TV and live appearances, on the other hand, just lives to piss everyone off, makes enemies just for the sake of making enemies, and gives James Edwards a lot of material.
I’d like to know which one is real, if either one. I’m tired of him sending all these mixed messages.
I was able to listen to the last half hour of his radio show today, and he parlayed the anti-white race riots at the Wisconsin State Fair near Milwaukee into a incident that happened near him this weekend as (appropriately enough) he and his family was watching the new version of Planet of the Apes at a theater. He said he sat down close to an obnoxious black man and some woman who seemed to be his wife, and he wouldn’t shut up even while the movie was playing. He got so bad with his yammering that a couple of other white people nearby asked him politely to quiet down, and he went into an even louder tirade, this time calling those white people and all the white people around him (the Becks included) “cracker” and other anti-White racial pejoratives. Beck then noted the obvious racial double standard — He nor any other white person could yell at black patrons in a movie room using the n-word without it becoming an international incident (and might I add, a fulcrum for SPLC fund raising letters.)
Of course I agreed, but my jaw just about fell to the floor when I heard him say this.
Did Glenn Beck forget he was supposed to be anti-racist? Did he forget that he and only he has exposed to the world all these great “black founding fathers” and the “perfidy” of “liberal historians” in “hiding them from us?” When in reality, if there was any hint of any real black founding fathers, all the liberals who run history departments at colleges and universities would have them be household names. The truth is that leftist historians de-legitimize the American founding period and do their best to erase it from most history texts because they can’t find a way to make to diverse. Sure, you might be conned into believing that the 54th Massachusetts was the main reason the Union won the WBTS, that the Buffalo Soldiers won WWI for the Allies, that the Tuskegee Airmen won WWII, and that Colin Powell single-handedly won Iraq I.
Did Glenn Beck forget that almost a year ago, he all but literally got on his knees to pleasure some niece of Martin Luther King in front of hundreds of thousands of people on the National Mall?
The last time Dave Glover (4-7 PM, 97.1 FM locally) filled in for Glenn Beck on his radio show, he relayed a semi-private conversation he had with Beck, about how he wished he could go back to being only a semi-political radio personality that cracks a lot of jokes. For those nationally who only know Glover as a Beck fill in, Glover’s own show in St. Louis on the same station as Beck is on is like that, only Glover is rarely political. Hell, one of his sidekicks has a stage name that sounds like “Turd Rock” if you say it quickly, and Glover usually does. (I know, it’s Terbrock.) I can understand Beck’s frustration — Back in his radio-only days, he was making a nice chunk of money and having a good time doing it, cracking jokes about Michael Bloomberg’s trans-fat prohibition. Once he got into TV and live appearances, it was a combination of both his philo-Semitism and anti-racism that made everyone mad, from most American Jews, to left-wing whites, to very right-wing whites, and even the lamestream right sometimes wondered if he was playing with a full deck.
A lot of people gravely misunderstand Jared Taylor’s insouciance toward Jewish issues — The Jews think he excuses white right-wing anti-Semitism if not actually endorses it, and the white right-wing anti-Semites think he’s a Jewish suck-up and a traitor. In reality, Jared Taylor is really neither, because he doesn’t want any part of the Jewish/Zionist/Israel issue base. Glenn Beck found out the hard way — It’s a high voltage third rail. If you’re a gentile and you touch it in any way, whether to destroy it (anti-Semitism) or to stroke it amicably and gently like you would your pet dog or cat (Philo-Semitism), you will get electrocuted.
Yeah, Glenn Beck on TV made a lot of money, but he needlessly made a lot more enemies in the process. What good was all that money to buy a mansion when he had to live behind armed guards 24/7 both in it and out in public? Man cannot live on bread alone.
