Glenn Beck Admits to Being a Froud and Tearing the Country Apart
Self-professed rodeo clown and failed DJ Glenn Beck, who, on the air, called a rival's wife that had suffered a miscarriage and mocked her husband's manhood, admitted recently during an interview on FAUX News that he had spewed utter nonsense and pandered to the intellectually challenged while working for FAUX News. His admission thereby reinforced a 2012 poll that found people who listened to NO news were better informed then anyone who listened to FAUX News - the only "news" network to ever go to court and demand the right to lie about, distort and make up news stories.
In an interview, with the equally fraudulent Megan Kelley, discussing his years with FAUX News, Beck said, "I remember it was an awful lot of fun and that I made an awful lot of mistakes. I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language because I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart .... Now I look back and I realize if we could have talked about the uniting principles a little bit more, instead of just the problems, I think I would look back on it a little more fondly."
Over the years Beck has said that President Obama is a "racist" and a "Marxist" with a "deep seated hatred for white people." He vilified the victims of Hurricane Katrina as "scumbags" who wanted nothing more than government hand-outs. He admits his racially tinged attacks were designed to "out-rightly misinform them" with "a smelly chum of hyperbole and invectives."
Beck has a long history of lying including, but not limited to the following -
1) Falsely claiming, during his Washington Mall speech in 2010, that he held Washington's inaugural address in his hands. That after saying, "Our sacred honor. It means that you tell the truth. The whole truth and nothing but the truth."
2) He lied when he claimed he "wrote" his slogan for the Blaze, his online "newspaper." Ironically, the slogan is "The truth has no agenda."
3) He lied about interacting with Barbara Walters and Whoopie Goldberg on an Amtrak train.
4) He lied when he claimed he never edited video of President Obama. Three different sources reported on the various edits which took Obama's words completely out of context.
5) He lied about George Soros having helped the Nazis confiscate land, and this despicable lie contuse to circulate on the internet thanks to Beck's ignorant followers.
6) While ranting against Media Matters, Beck lied about the number of viewers he had.
7) He lied when declaring the operation that killed bin Laden "contradicted every bit of foreign policy, everything [Obama has] ever advocated." He must not have watched the presidential debates of 2008 to make up that lie.
Last year, Beck called for a Special Council to pursue impeachment of the President over the Benghazi and the IRS non-scandals saying, "I have not suggested that anything rises to ... the level of impeachment .... There's documentation on this. I believe it is time for the American people to demand that a Special Council is appointed ...." This was a blatant turn-around from his earlier statement where he did suggest just that, saying, "When America knows the full story on this if she doesn't stand up, and quite honestly and demand impeachment and a mass firing ... we don't stand a chance."
The best thing ever heard, demonstrating what an unhinged maniacal loser Beck truly is, took place on 15 July, 2009, when the darling of the righties melted down, on the air, with the following rant at a caller who disagreed with him about health care access for all Americans, "Cathy, get off my phone! Get off my phone you little pinhead! I don't care! You people don't care about the trillions! Get off the phone! I'm going to lose my mind today!" Although sadly comical to read, you truly need to pull this one up on Youtube and watch the Beckster spew spittle as he "loses his mind."
Okay, so Beck has finally come clean and admitted to lying, for years, to his minions, who in turn repeated his lies across the internet, despite the more rational of us warning them they were being misled and lied to by a fool and they were, in turn, spreading lies.
I have, for years, warned the intellectually challenged about believing the garbage that spews froth from the right wing shouting heads and now my forewarnings have proven out as Beck says he's "sorry" for his role in tearing our nation apart.
During his FUAX News interview Beck commented his lies, hyperbole and hate speech were all in "good fun." Yes, Glenn, ha ha ha, it was all in good fun! Reminds me of the high school bully who trips you in the hallway causing you to fall and then says, "Oh, I'm sorry, it was just a joke! I thought it was funny! How was I to know you would get hurt?"
Glenn, I'm pleased that you had such a grand time. Perhaps if you are truly sorry for what you did, you would do something useful with the tens of millions of dollars you made off of the ignorance of the deluded fools who listened to you in earnest, thought you were telling the truth and believed you actually meant every word you said. Yes, you owe apologies - first to the stupid people who believed you because they didn't know enough to understand you "were only joking" and that you were spewing all of those lies in order to line your pockets. And you owe every American a personal apology for the damage you did for years without a care or a thought that you were causing harm. Shouldn't you make up in some small way for helping to "tear the country apart," since you did after all become filthy rich in doing so? And had a great time to boot. And now that the FAUX News party is over you suddenly have some minor regrets?
Above all else the intellectually challenged need to realize Glenn Beck is still tearing the country apart with the same vitriolic trash, only now on the radio instead of TV. I must admit to being confused because I thought apologies were supposed to come with a commitment to stop the offending behavior.
Since you have admitted to being a proficient liar, may I say that other than the part about how much fun it was for you tearing the country apart on FAUX News, I don't believe the rest of what you said, you know the part about being sorry. It rings with falsehood. I believe that it was just one more outrageous thing to say that has no more truth or honesty in it than any of the horrid, awful, despicable lies you've been broadcasting over the publicly owned airwaves for years on the radio.
Obviously you revel in making fools of your believers with yet another, even more outrageous lie. Admit it, Glenn, the real truth is you are having a behind-the-scenes laugh at the people who take you seriously. That is the real "fun," isn't it, Glenn? Makes you feel sort of superior when how else could you get there if it wasn't for a non-stop litany of lies and the pathetic fools who believe them?

UPDATE – Two weeks after Beck made his fake apology to the nation on the fake “news” network he is back at it, spreading blatant lies. In an attempt to panic he claimed anyone who disagrees with President Obama, on such things as global warming and abortion rights, will be thrown into internment camps.
He also compared Washington DC to Chernobyl and suggested Congress solve its problems the way the Ukraine did, “You, you go in. You open the door. Then you get out...” Never one to miss a Nazi comparison, Beck said “The progressive war on the American one percent is the modern-day equivalent of the Nazis’ condemnation of Jews during the Holocaust.”
In yet another demonstration of his ability to lie Beck said about the STOU address, “…the State of the Union where our president declared he would become America’s first dictator.”
He then took the all-inclusive Coke commercial from the Super Bowl to task saying, “That’s all this is, is to divide people.”
