Ann Coulter is Right: Glenn Beck is Being Targeted for Destruction

October 4, 2009

beck crying

Glenn Beck has become a hot topic of discussion lately on the cable news programs. Branding him as the new leader of the conservative movement and the Republican Party, many competitors are looking to destroy the man. On her new CNN program, for instance, Joy Behar made another in a long line of direct attacks on Beck during a September 30th interview with Ann Coulter; Coulter’s response was brilliant:

Behar: People hate [Beck] more than they used to hate you.

Coulter: There is a liberal obsession with “tell us who your leader is.”  And you realize why liberals want to know is because this is how they argue: they find who the leader is and they destroy him…. We’ve decided we’re not going with a leader this time, so you’re going to have to argue with us on the facts.”

Indeed, members of the media, and leftists generally, have begun to attack Beck with a vengeance.  NewsReal has repeatedly shown that Beck is a prime target, now that he has helped take down the self-avowed communist Van Jones and the criminal enterprise known as ACORN.  While NewsReal has had some differences with Beck, our bloggers have found themselves on his side in most battles and have defended him.

But now, a number of prominent conservatives and Republicans — among them MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, radio host Michael Savage, and Senator Lindsey Graham — have begun taking swipes at Beck as well. Scarborough, for his part, has advised that Republicans running for President in 2012 ought to publicly repudiate the broadcaster. Savage repeatedly refers to Beck on his show by such smears as “the hemorrhoid,” “a fraudster,” and a “rip-off artist.” And on the latest Fox News Sunday, Senator Graham made it very clear that Beck has nothing to do with the Republican Party, and that he (Graham) doesn’t watch Beck’s show.

Conservatives don’t do themselves any favors by turning their backs on a person who is helping to shed a bright light on so many of the left’s hidden agendas and corrupt activities. Certainly anyone is perfectly entitled to disagree with Beck — but let’s not dump him. Coulter is correct in saying that while Beck is not the leader of the political right, neither is he its enemy.

    Change the news dissemination paradigm for good!

    Economically coerce the MGMSM to give up their irrelevant expensive limited broadcast and print medium which also allows them total control of the message!

    They must come to face their audience in the true avenue of mainstream give & take ideas and real social change, the internet!

    This kind of attack by Republicans (Graham) and others on Beck will lead to one thing in 2012…a formation of a third party. It’s been predicted by Gerald Celente and others, so it’s not that crazy to assume if we stay on this path, it will happen. Now that Republicans are finally being held accountable by other Republicans, conservatives, and former Republicans turned Libertarian, they are resistant to pointing out and eliminating the corruption within their own ranks. The American People are catching on and calling them out. It’s a big step in the right direction- thanks to Beck!

    You know I like all of the Conservative Talk Show hosts. However, when they start criticizing each other, it’s like a circular firing squad. It only helps the lib opposition.
    I don’t like it when Savage criticizes the others, but he has a point about Hannity, Rush, and Beck haven’t said a word about him being banned from England.

    Remember, the saying:
    “First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;
    Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist;
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist;
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew;
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

      I also think they should have spoken out about how Savage has been treated. But I find it sad how he attacks people for not publicly making a big deal about his problem. If you listen to his radio show it is so much bitterness and focus on him being hosed by the UK. It’s kind of sad.

        His show has always been, well, Savage. Glenn Beck has his flaws, but Michael Savage would be bad for conservatism if he were deemed its spokesman. Fortunately, there is a limited market for that kind of thing, so he’ll never get beyond the demo he already has.

        That said, Britain has let in a lot of radical clerics to lead Mosques that advocate violence against the West, so it’s pretty bad that Savage is where they draw the line at persona non grata.

      Savage is good, however, If anyone is ponying for money and fame only, it’s him. He runs a diatribe on every show about being “banned” from the conservative media. He needs to grow up, shut his trap and understand that certain “crazy” comments that he makes on air should stay in his head. He alienated himself and his sour grapes approach gives neo communists ammunition to attack our cause.

    Washington fears Glenn because he will turn up the heat on the corruption in Washington. Democrats and Republicans in the Capitol would be wise to clean up their act on their own, before We the People fight to get rid of the ones not willing to. I could care less what Joy thinks of Glenn! I could care less what Joe thinks of Glenn….he is the only one willing to expose Washington for what it is ….

    Scarborough attacks because he has become a msnbc ho. Savage hates everyone whom he perceives as competition.He cuts off people who are desperately trying to agree with him because he misunderstands their opening statements. He has zero patience. Savage has flashes of brilliance,but needs constant ego-stroking and is utterly consumed with his own problems,real or perceived. Graham a conservative? Then he says he doesn’t watch the show. How can he make a judgement,if he hasn’t seen it? Beck,for me,is the real thing,flaws and all.

  16. October 5, 2009 3:59 am

    Last night I was idly cruising the channels and came upon Joy Behar’s new talk show (after becoming a Fox convert less than 6 months ago, I never watch CNN anymore. And so this was almost like going back to the old neighborhood and marveling at how small the houses are).

    She had on Bette Midler, and apropos of absolutely nothing Joy asked Bette what she thought of all the virulent activity out there (“guns in the town hall meetings”). There was some talk of people speaking out of fear and this is what you can expect from people who are afraid of change. But the kicker was that when Glenn Beck’s name was brought up (maybe we should start calling him Old Faithful now, he’s going to come up within any hour, all you have to do is wait for it), Bette likened his messaging to the hate mongering in Rwanda between the Hutus and Tutsis leading ultimately to genocide. Wrapping up her considered opinion by implying that such a thing could happen here.

    If I hadn’t heard it with my own ears I would have said, “Naw…can’t be.” But I heard it with my own ears. It’s not even 5 am my time but here I am writing about it. I’d love to hear the whole conversation over again because I’m pretty sure there was more. But I was so blown away by that comment that all I could think of was “Oh my God!” for the rest of the segment.

    All these idiots who are bashing him now are jealous of him and his success. Millions follow him. He has a heart and digs deep into what is going on in this country.

    Scarborough, for his part, has advised that Republicans running for President in 2012 ought to publicly repudiate the broadcaster. I don’t remeber him repudiating Olbermann and Maddow for their hate speech. He’s the most pathetic person. He’s not a Rebublican he’s a souless loser who works for the failed MSNBC. That is his achievement in life, like I said, pathetic!

    Glenn Beck is just another flavor in the conservative melting pot. The left needs to separate us in order to control the debate. As Ann said , “we have no leaders” because we, as conservatives, all think on our own, for our own benefits, where we also look out for each other, also for our mutual benefit. The left is scared out of their wits because conservatives are now finally taking responsibility.

    We have been, for far too long, allowing the status quo to continue unabated because we were too busy to take notice of what has been going on. While we lived our pleasant little lives we have let the left slowly crawl through it’s climb and now all of a sudden… Oh my G%D! How did this guy become president?

    The left sees that the right is now awakening and they fear their beliefs are finally going to be challenged. We are saying no, as a people, for the first time to our spoiled kids,(LIBS) and they are throwing tantrums. And like a spoiled child who won’t admit guilt, the left is trying to divert attention from themselves and are trying to get us to focus on someone else.

    So what do we do? We oblige them. Joe says this, Savage said that, Ann says this… We are falling right in their trap! Again, start thinking for yourselves! Just like a Chinese menu, take one from part A and two from part B, and form YOUR own opinions. Hang together or we will all….

    Make no mistake the left and the fringe media is out to destroy Beck and Sarah Palin because they fear both of them and for good reason they very possibly could take down there socialist dreams in an election coming near you soon.

    As for Lindsey Graham I hope this law breaking supporter of illegal aliens will be replaced in a coming election. Him along with the Republican leadership brought about the loses in the house and senate in 2006 mainly because of there support for amnesty. Many Reps simply stayed home because of it.

    The Republican Party indeed does need a good clean-out. There are too many (McCain, Graham, Snowe, etc.) who don’t know what they are.

    And what’s this about Lieberman considering joining the Republicans? Good grief. I like the guy but he sure doesn’t fit my template of a Republican.

    I have friends who are joining the Libertarians just to get rid of the taste of RINO.

        The worst thing we could do is create a third party. It would split the republican party down the middle for decades allowing the democrats to run anyone and win. Perhaps a new third party could grow in a couple of generations , but what about the damage the democrats would reap upon American society and law? The only solution is to vote out RINO incumbents that are ‘moderates’. Anyone who wants to reach across the isle can just keep on going. I understand that we all have to co exist but when you sell out your basic platform for bi partisanship approval, you sell out the people who voted you in!

        Agreed, in VT there are 3 parties.

        Republican, Democrat and Progressive

        One would have thought it would be helpful, but now that the Dems and Progs have figured out they tend not to get majorities, they voted in instant run off voting where the 2nd choice votes go to the person with the most votes…hence either the dem or prog wins automatically

        Just one of the ways to maintain power.

      Read George Washington’s farewell address. Our government was not founded with the intention of having ANY party. The establishment of a party equals division and separation of goals. How can this be good? What we see today is government governing for themselves aka PARTY.

      If you are of the opposite party you have no say and government isn’t representing you. We saw this in Obama’s statement, just days after taking office, to Minority Whip Eric Cantor, R-Va. where he ended a conversation with “I won. So I think on that one, I trump you.”. This party based “I won” attitude only serves one party! House Republicans have for 9 months complained about not being consulted, their voice not being heard and their legislative amendments repeatedly killed by democrats with little if any debate.

      So how can this be improved by adding ANOTHER party? It can’t. What we need is an abolishment of the party system completely and this can’t be done except by electing true public servants who are not career politicians. There are many broken pieces to this government but the most broken is the will and wisdom of the electorate.


  22. October 5, 2009 7:14 am

    The media is manufacturing and generating this “hatred talk” on purpose to avoid, distract and alter the conversation away from the facts that are publicly presented each day on conservative radio and TV programs by a very large and growing audience.

    There ARE a few who sincerely and passionately DO hate Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Coulter and any other conservative talk host but the tactic here is to “talk up” hatred where it does not exist in order to block the flow of information and dilute the audience. If the “everyone hates Beck” message is repeated enough, some may stop listening and will no longer receive the information presented by Beck and others and grow in knowledge and understanding.

    Part of the tactic is to exaggerate the style and parse the statements in order to misrepresent the message and drive separation.

    If ratings, town hall/tea party crowds, book sales and other stats are evidence – I’d say the strategy isn’t working. What we are witnessing is people acting on their own based upon the information they have received, discerned and believed to be true.

      I am not a savvy political blogger, but I do have some questions.

      1- If everything Beck uncovers is the TRUTH, how can it be labeled Hate Speech? What are the conservatives afraid of?

      2- If everyone thinks he is crazy, why is he one of the number # shows on Fox?

      He definitely has influence.. look at the tea parties and 9/12.

      To me the conservative hosts have turned on Beck because they are intimidated by the Left and THAT is a shame. Even Coulter tried the explain why everyone hates Beck when the viewing and listening audiences don’t hate him. Proof is in the ratings.

      Am I missing something here? As I said, I am not savvy so please explain this to me.

    Hatred of Beck is fear based. Just like every other attack on anyone with information that enlightens the voters. We simply need to accept that hatred is good, it makes us smile…it is an identifier that the object is on the right path. We are lucky to have Ann Coulter, Beck, Sarah Palin…and David Horowitz…good, fearless, hard-working people with integrity. Any other characterization of them is automatically suspect.

    To GBArg,
    I disagree with your opinion of Joe Lieberman’s representing the Republican Party. I think he would be a welcome addition. My highest qualification for a seat in either body of the U.S. Congress is honesty, and having watched Senator Lieberman over the past eight years, I’ve been most impressed. Although he does not agree with my position on some of the social issues, he is a man of high integrity, and living in the State of Pennsylvania, let me say this: I would have swapped Arlen Spector for Joe Lieberman any day.

    Alright, I am going to say this only once. The tent is big and growing bigger with great people and good ideas for the future of America. Those people that cannot see the value of this (ex: Savage,Scarborough,Graham,Etc.)need to shut up and get on board. The conservative tent has many wonderful voices that present a variety of appproaches towards the same goal of bringing back the Constitution, family and other conservative values back to America. We don’t always agree with the depth and intensity of one anothers views, but, agree to hold hands and move forward to secure a future for our children. The way to this will be difficult and against the Liberal entrenchment in our government, schools and other institutions that have taken it upon themselves to rob our families and most importantly our children of their heritage as Americans and the ability to hold to the foundations set by our fathers. The varied, and sometimes loud and unconventional voices, are needed to open the message to a broader spectrum of Americans that might otherwise not hear the truth. So, to those that hold to the firm, unwavering, bland yada yada, get on board or we will leave you in the dust. There is no room for your intense, focused criticism of other conservatives simply because the presentation of their message annoys you or does not fall within your concept of a “formal platform and forum”. Get on board with the rest of us to take back our country or you will be left in the dust. I have wanted to vent this message for quite some time. I am tired of hearing the bickering of the elected and commentator “conservatives” pick and criticize fellow conservatives.

    It shows that these people are not actually watch the Glenn Beck show. Glenn doesn’t say that he is either a Democrat or Republican. Glenn is actually a patriot, who will support whoever is the best person for the country. Lindsey Graham is nothing more than two faced. You need to watch your back around him. Has anyone check to see what Behar is drawing for her show on CNN, around 500,000 compare that to Beck’s 2,500,000 and sometimes 3,000,000 viewers at 5pm eastern. That is what is scaring the Liberals more than anything else.

    Glenn Beck is doing a great job. He is even succeeding in waking up the rednecks in the south. It is an accomplishment.
    With such a popularity comes the other side of the medal, the hate and the will to destroy. Ann Coulter comes to the rescue but GB is already to far in his success to be destroyed. Just watch ….

      Hey, watch your mouth.. I’m from Alabama. Any rednecks here won’t watch political shows like Beck. Their allegiance is football. The rest of us wear shoes and can think outside the box.

      The people of the South have been awake more so than any other portion of the country for years. As for your redneck comment you can take it and stick it where the sun never shines. I would comment on the questionable legitimacy of your parentage and birth but Mr. Swindel does not allow that.

    Thanks to Glenn Beck and others that are open to asking questions and demanding answers, there is a growing number of Americans doing the same. I disagree with Ann Coulter when Joy Behar pressed her to name the leader of the Conservative movement (I no longer prefer to refer to it as a party, since by definition we have BECOME a movement). Ann replied that we have no leader, therefore preventing the Left from attacking that leader. Thanks to the voices such as Glenn Beck and others, we now have millions of leaders willing to stand firm, demand accountability, demand answers and a return to the foundations of this country. We are all now leaders. The 9/12 march was an example of Americans taking on the mantle of leadership in a force that can change this country. Thank you Ann for your leadership.Thank you to those that contribute on this board for your leadership.

    Got tired of listening to all the comments about Mikie Savage.

    When his program became “The Michael Savage Show: Subject: Michael Savage!” I moved on and haven’t looked back.

    I haven’t heard what his problem with the Brits is, but I’d rather you didn’t bother to tell me!

    Ignore him and maybe he’ll go away!!

    Glenn has never claimed to be a conservative or a republican. In fact, he’s often said he’s a libertarian with conservative leanings. He wants a smaller government, more freedoms, and wants people to be responsible for their own actions.

    If you’ve listened to his show, he often laughs at himself for being the Third Most listened to talk show, and says he doesn’t want to be #1. He’s always trying to use humor to make a point, and he’s had liberals on his show, like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, etc. He never claims to be perfect and always points out that he was once “an alcoholic DJ.” The only thing he claims to be is a Mormon and that he struggles with every day.

    I like the man, and think he really cares about what happens.

    It’s just a mark of the liberal mind that they have to destroy anyone who carries the torch of truth and tries to light the path.

    The interesting part for me is that I think that Beck really doesn’t care what other people think of him. This makes him look crazy to some. But what does that say about America when the few people that are willing to speak out publicly against impending totalitarianism seem to be a little nuts?

    He’s done a great job in exposing the lunatic left to America and I admire his courage. Beck has been willing to paint a target on himself and be attacked, ridiculed and threatened. What’s really spooky is the number of people that condemn Beck not because they disagree with him but because they are afraid of looking a little nuts themselves. The Scarboroughs and Frums of this world value “respectability” over integrity.

    Coulter’s answer about leaders was a good one. It reminded me of a quote from Emiliano Zapata – “A strong people do not need a leader”.

    I agree that Ann was brilliant, but only up to the point where Scarborough was mentioned. Ann said he wasn’t a leader of the party. What she should have said is that Scarborough is a mealy-mouthed loser who probably voted for Obama. His advice is the last thing the Republican party needs.

    Savage is increasingly becoming irrelevant, not that he ever was relevant to begin with. While he may have a legitimate grievance over being barred from England in may ways he created his own problem by playing the right wing “Shock Jock”. Unlike Glen Beck, Mark Levin, Rush, Hanity, and Mr. Horrowitz, Micheal “Savage” Weiner adds very little to the public discourse.
    As for Lindsey Graham, the man is a “Country Club” type with a Southern drawl, in other words he figures that the Republican party would be great if it wasn’t for those pesky conservatives. Every party needs a diversity of viewpoints but that doesn’t mean that you cave to the competition at every opportunity. It’s almost a Neville Chamberlain mindset, the mindset that you can compromise with someone who has no intention of keeping their end of the bargain.
