Glenn Beck logic: 95% believe therefore you shouldn’t criticize Santorum or Satan


Over at Facebook, a “friend” liked a Glenn Beck article called, “OMG! Rick Santorum is Religious!?

Curiosity encouraged me to click on it to read for myself. I’m not going to spend much time on this, as we all know that Beck is an easy target.

In a nutshell, Beck lambasts anyone who would criticize Santorum for his religious views or for saying that “Satan has targeted America” back in 2008.

Beck says that in a country with 95% of the population believing in a higher power, how could anyone criticize Santorum?

  • Firstly, when did the number go up from around 80% belief to 95%?
  • Secondly, if you place yourself in a spotlight, you are subject to praise and criticism. Questioning that is a waste of time.
  • Thirdly, if you expect everyone to believe in an invisible being who is supposedly responsible for all of the world’s woes — and for burying fossils to confuse science and Young Earth Creationists — you deserve criticism. If you are a presidential candidate who thinks an invisible being exists without any proof whatsoever, you deserve utmost criticism.

Satan, the evil being that God allows to exist so that he’s not accused of tyranny or un-just-ness. Satan, the guy who is responsible for you lusting sexually over your neighbor’s body. Satan, the guy who is responsible for cancer, disease, turmoil and tribulation.

He’s invisible and 95% of the American population knows he exists.

And he has targeted America and all free people.

With his invisible target devices.

What part of this am I not supposed to criticize?

Obligatory (for universal reasons): Glenn Beck transitioning off TV


End Of An Era of the Day

We are thanking goodness for this upcoming transition for Glenn Beck to make the transition off of TV.

Complete rebloggity blog from The Daily Wh.at:

After much prognostication on the part of the media, the Glenn Beck-backed website The Blaze is officially confirmingreports that the Fox News persona will be “transitioning off” his daily show to focus on developing and producing “a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel as well as content for other platforms including Fox News’ digital properties.”

“Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody’s standards,” said Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in a prepared statement. “I look forward to continuing to work with him.”

Despite the release’s insistence that Beck’s show is “consistently the third highest rated program on cable news,” Business Insider reported in January that Glenn Beck has seen a significant slide in ratings, losing 1.8 million viewers — 39% of its total audience — since last year.

Glenn Beck poes it up like TamTamPamela


Only he’s not a poe (or is he?). He’s definitely a jerk.

He said that the earthquake might be a message from god.

Says Beck-a-poo:

“There’s a message being sent. And that is, ‘Hey, you know that stuff we’re doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.’ I’m just saying.”

Don’t take my word for it. Listen here. You can also listen to his opportunism to plug food insurance here.

If Beck were smart, he’d take TamTamPamela’s lead and hang up his dunce cap.

Beck’s & FOX News’ Anti-Christ prophet? – Rachel Maddow


When I read through a thread of discussion on a Christian blog or forum, I can’t make it through. The crazy is mind blowing. Sometimes I’ll be impressed by a believers’ opening sentence, and start gagging with every subsequent sentence.

When I’ve watched clips of Glenn Beck or even turned on his show, I force myself to listen and finally turn it off after having my mind bent from the woo that people think and listen to.

I could hardly make it to the end of this Rachel Maddow clip. I can’t believe Maddow took the time to report on Beck explaining the anti-Christ to his viewers. Doesn’t her reportage somehow give more credence to Beck’s inanity? Then again, you can’t stand idly by while the invisible, unprovable evils in the world are recognized on national television as if its true.

And now I feel compelled to put this stupid clip in front of you.

Our brains must all be sick.

I have sold myself to a devil that doesn’t exist.

Honk.

RETRACTION: This cartoon shows what Glenn Beck believes (via Le Café Witteveen)


While reading The Friendly Atheist (here), I learned that the video I posted (below link) is NOT accurate. It doesn’t not accurately portray what Mormons believe.

Although, I have to say, Mormonism is still a nutty religion and Glenn Beck should still be considered asinine for aligning himself with it.

I apologize for misleading you regarding the video. I will expect an angry mob including yourselves and Glenn Beck lovers everywhere. My buzzer reads, “Bob”. Let yourselves in. I’ll be waiting.

Glenn Beck is a moron Mormon. The video below is a teaching tool that Mormons showed their youth for bible study and learning. It offers all kinds of great information about the origins of Mormonism, including where black people come from. How in Sanity’s name could you take Beck seriously after learning the load of incredible fantasy that man holds as true and good? Before you criticize this cartoon as crazy, consider the beliefs you uphold and … Read More

This cartoon shows what Glenn Beck believes


Glenn Beck is a moron Mormon. The video below is a teaching tool that Mormons showed their youth for bible study and learning. It offers all kinds of great information about the origins of Mormonism, including where black people come from.

How in Sanity’s name could you take Beck seriously after learning the load of incredible fantasy that man holds as true and good?

Before you criticize this cartoon as crazy, consider the beliefs you uphold and second guess whether your ideas are absolutely bonker nuts.

And then pat yourself on the back for not falling for Mormonism. What a load of bullshit.

***UPDATE Feb, 9, 2011***

According to this, this video isn’t an accurate portrayal of Mormonism.

Although despite the video being fake, the fact remains that Mormonism is completely crazy, and it would be completely crazy to believe the stuff they teach.

The People who Mattered in 2010


Glenn Beck – The Lone Voice Of Reason In An Age Of Hysteria

From a very reliable source:

In what has increasingly become an era defined by pandemonium, rancor, and blind ignorance, one stabilizing voice emerged from the din this year to soothe the souls of Americans everywhere, make us recognize the common decency that binds us all, and supplant the poisonous aura of fear and chaos with a simple, well-thought-out message of peace, prosperity, and reconciliation.

That man is television and syndicated radio host Glenn Beck.

Every single day of 2010, Beck’s quiet words of humility and reason have touched the hearts of all Americans, healing countless wounds and elevating the level of our national discourse. Indeed, just as Martin Luther King, Jr.—to whom Beck has so aptly and correctly compared himself—once showed the nation the way forward to compassion and civility, so have Beck’s stunningly eloquent broadcasts, inspiring political rallies, and bestselling books reassured every living citizen that we are all joined by the same ever-beating heart of kindness, and that gentler roads lie ahead if we could all just settle down, lower our voices, and focus on solving the actual, meaningful problems of our world together.

For in these troubled times of rising unemployment, political infighting, anger, and persecution, America needs a man who can put the issues in perspective and bring us comfort; a man who cares not about race, creed, sexual orientation, or party affiliation; a man who sees beyond petty political maneuverings, emotional exploitation, greed, and opportunism; a man who encourages all of us to disregard the ceaseless clamor of ideologues and think for ourselves; a man who sees beyond his own ego and cares only for what is good and right and just. In short, it needs a man like Glenn Lee Beck.

Thank God for Glenn Beck and all he has done. After all, what would our country be like if not for him?

Who else made the list? Read here.

Glenn Beck is upset because you’re smarter than he is … well … some of you


A year ago, a study by Satoshi Kanazawa theorized that more intelligent people tend to abstain from belief systems.

I just saw this blog post at here that you might like to read (passive agressive, much?). Go to the address to listen to Beck and yawn a little.

In the above video Glenn Beck discovers the year old study by Satoshi Kanazawa (whose name Beck couldn’t even begin to pronounce) in which he theorizes that more intelligent people tend to be atheists, and less intelligent people tend to be very religious. Beck not only couldn’t counter Kanazawa’s claims, but didn’t really even seem to understand what he was reading.

For those without the time let me break down the study for you.

Something There is That Doesn’t Love a Speculum.


What is this “fictional” wall separating church and state, Becky Pooh? You want to tear down the “fictional” one? Oh, you mean the real wall that our forefathers built to keep the government’s grubby hands off of the people’s rights to believe or not believe whatever they want? You mean the one that makes it so that your kids don’t get stuck learning about the Islamic creation story over the Christian one in public schools? You mean the wall that protects believers and non-believers from being forced into one idea set or faith? You mean the wall that John Locke helped build? You mean the concept established in the first amendment of our constitution and the one that Thomas Jefferson wrote about in this letter (emphasis mine):

“Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man & his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state.”

Oh, I get it. Beck doesn’t work with a teleprompter, and he was inadvertently leaving out the word “non”, as in “non-fictional” wall. If he wants to tear down the “non-fictional” wall, he’s in for a mountain of work, as the forefathers fought so hard to build the establishment clause as the first amendment which handily separates church and state.

Clearly, Beck is worthy of watching on a regular religious basis. Clearly he gets his facts straight and clearly he leads by example.

Beck is the builder of a huge fictional wall that tries to separate people like you and me. He makes a wall of fictional issues not based on any rational, educated or logical information. He makes it so that issues like these force people into thinking that liberals are assholes and conservatives are superior.

Liberals ARE assholes, but so are conservatives. Liberals are also really solid people with lots of good ideas, and it pains me to admit, but conservatives have good ideas too. Both sides have great attributes, but you wouldn’t know it if you turn this shit on every night. The party leaders on both sides want to make the gap large, where really it’s quite small.

Robert Frost said it best, “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall / that sends the frozen ground swell under it.”

Beck is the “old stone savage armed.” He is a man-made speculum inserted into the loveliness that is this country, he cranks it open left and right as far as it can go.

Ask any woman, that speculum is a cold, man-made device of torture.

Something there is that doesn’t love a speculum.
