Glenn Beck Nearly Dies and the Left Cheers

November 5, 2009


For those who missed it, Glenn Beck left his radio program early yesterday, saying he felt ill. Filling in on his TV show, Judge Andrew Napolitano announced Beck has a case of appendicitis. The Left reacted with its usual reaction: glee and bloodlust. A few of left-wing headlines shout:

The latter story reads:

Glenn Beck suffered an appendicitis attack on-air today.

It was during his radio program, so sadly there is no video of Glenn clutching his abdomen, vomiting, and finally collapsing in pain.

Beck is expected to make a full recovery, after his appendix was removed at “an undisclosed hospital.”

Glenn Beck’s Appendix Makes A Break For It“:

This morning, during his radio show, Glenn Beck suffered a mutiny staged by the only internal organ he has that exhibits any signs of intelligence…

And the caring folks at Democratic Underground wrote such sentiments as:

It’s par for the course for the politcal hacks who alternately lecture conservatives about the all-important virtue of civility, lie about conservative incivility, and dream of the day they can bring back duels.

    I find it interesting that Glenn Beck nearly dies and what does Ben Johnson do in response? He goes out and searches for negative comments by some classless lefties. I guess we know that Ben doesn’t care about Beck, he just wants to make some political points. Sad indeed. 😦

      Ben was reinforcing a point Beck himself made on his website last week.

      I guess we know that Harmon doesn’t care about Beck as much as he cares about screaming “Gotcha!” when he is, in fact, wrong.

        Boy, does Beck have you bamboozled? There isn’t anyone who is controversal as Beck is that doesn’t get their share of obnoxous email, Tweets.

        By the way, its Ben Johnson doing the “Gotchas,” and I’m correct about that.

          I love your comments – I really do. They’re so clearly aimed at discrediting, in this case, Ben Johnson, that I can’t imagine anyone falling for them; but they’re great nonetheless. They serve as prime examples of how the left operates. Wonderful. Thanks!

        You sure do know how to bring out the trolls buddy !

      If NewsReal doesn’t take the time to point out the gutless hypocrisy and utterly shameless smear tactics of the Left, who will? Not the establishment media, that’s for sure. Leftists can smear conservatives and Republicans all day long without consequence. But if anyone DARES to oppose Obama and his policies, he is branded a racist. Generally speaking, anyone who opposes the Leftist agenda will be branded racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic, or . . . well, you get the idea. Attack the messanger, not the message. Pure Alinsky.

      Case in point – the comment above demonizing Ben Johnson for reporting on reactions to Glen Beck’s sudden illness. It would have been much more effective to simply post links to sites in which democrats and other leftists express their heartfelt support to Beck and wishes for a speedy recovery. But that’s not the way Alinskyites roll.

        @Chris: I think we should be grateful to the troll for leaving those comments. See my other comment; they function as a perfect example of the (counterproductive) tactics used by such people. They’re almost a caricature of Alinsky.

    “This morning, during his radio show, Glenn Beck suffered a mutiny staged by the only internal organ he has that exhibits any signs of intelligence…”

    What’s not true about that? Clearly Beck’s appendix is more intelligent than his brain. And it’s physically closer to his real source of intelligence, on which has also had surgery for hemorrhoids.

      So, apparently lefties are now going to spend their day proving Ben right! Nothing like a complete lack of self-awareness.

        I suppose posting union members with Swastikas is your expression of love, David? Now matter how you spin it, David, Johnson is wrong. Not about the hateful messages – everone makes them, both left and right – but about making Beck’s illness a political issue. Very sad indeed. By the way, for the record, I wish Beck no ill. May he continue to make a fool of himself and the Republic party.

          Yea my ass. I believe everyone can read above and can tell where true sentiments lie.
          I think I will go take a shower but really it is nothing new. The left has been for years more vicious than the KKK or the SS

      That must be why he spent so much time at the Communist News Network. Are we going to have to wait for our prez to hunt those down and bring em to justice for what they’ve done? Oh wait, that was billy bubba that used to say that stuff.

    Get well soon, Glenn! You are a true patriot, and these morons don’t know how to debate the facts, so they resort to devilish attacks such as this. Their true colors have been showing a long time, so I’m not surprised. I wish they’d all move to Cuba.

      “I wish they’d all move to Cuba.”

      I love the USA and most of it’s citizen, even you who expresses you hate for me. Are you not in the same class as those who wish ill of Glenn Beck?

        “Are you not in the same class as those who wish ill of Glenn Beck?”

        No one is wishing them an agonizing death. We just want them to be able to live in a place with a government more to their liking where they would be happy.

    AnimalNewYork and Gawker are the best you could do for “Left Wing” media sites? Both are hardly more than gossip sites, if that. Certainly not what anyone would call real news sites. Let alone the other sites you mention.

    So your headline should really read “Gossip Sites Make Fun of Glenn Beck Illness” which isn’t rally surprising, they are gossip sites.

    Compare real news sites like NPR, or the New York Times, which didn’t give Beck’s illness much coverage, and the worst you can say is “Glenn Beck Almost Dies and the Liberal Media Doesn’t Seem To Care” – which might be liberal bias to not cover the story, but isn’t anything like the “glee and bloodlust” you accuse the liberal media of in your story.

    NPR did mention it on one of their blogs, simply saying: “It happened on the radio and not on television, but Fox News host Glenn Beck had an appendicitis attack on the air, it seems.”

    Even the Huffington Post, one of the leaders in left-wing coverage, had nothing evil to say about Beck’s illness, but gave a simple set of facts and a link to Fox video:

    So who is doing the distortion here?

    And if you want to put your health care concerns in the hands of compasionate people, well, they have exposed themselves aptly in regards to another human being.

    This brings out the hate, mean spirited, rott and evilness of the left. Their vomit will overcome them.

      “Their vomit will overcome them”

      That’s exactly it. Those who hate can’t be victorious.

  7. November 5, 2009 4:02 pm

    Gee, in light of this expression of hatred being spread on the airways and on the web is going to prompt any statements by President Hope&Change’s Chairman-Mao-loving Communications Director Anita Dunn or his Chávez-loving Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd or even President Hope&Change himself.

    And maybe pigs will fly out of my skinny white butt.

    I’m so tired of this lie that it’s conservatives who spew hate on the airwaves. Because it’s not conservatives; it’s liberals. And they do it with impunity because the so-called watchdogs of fake hate speech actually loooove real hate speech—just as long as it’s aimed at conservatives.

    I am appalled at the hatred aimed at Glenn Beck (“I hope he
    dies!”) I disagree with most of his commentary but I don’t HATE him
    or wish him ill. He’s a guy expressing his views, he’s a father, a husband,
    a neighbor, etc., just a guy like you and me. I hope he gets well soon and
    back on the air spouting stuff I disagree with! 🙂

      Yeh, John, as long as Glenn Beck is still talking, we know we all still have free speech in America!

    Some of those headlines are hilarious! And this is just brilliant:

    “This morning, during his radio show, Glenn Beck suffered a mutiny staged by the only internal organ he has that exhibits any signs of intelligence…”

    So, really, just take that stick out of your rears and grow a thicker skin. Beck is fine.

      Why are you trying to make something sexual out of serious illness? You must have been exposed to to many snutty magazines. Please in times of serious illness get your mind out of the gutter.

    It is during events like this when Commies show their true HATEFUL RACIST SELVES. Particularly interesting from a ‘group’ who DEMANDS others ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’ yet exempts themselves from the same TYRANNY they dish out! Two faced, double speaking RATS in sheeps clothing reveal and hang themselves when opportunities like this arise.

    Well, I for one am glad Glenn got to have surgery on this before socialized health care comes along…I have a feeling that surgery for HIS appendicitis might be denied…if you get my drift….

    Wishing Glenn Beck a prompt and full recovery so he can resume his accurate and detailed accounts of how the Obama White House and its czars are systematically ruining our great Country.

  13. November 6, 2009 8:55 am

    “Nearly died” is a little over dramatic. Glenn has himself joked about murdering the speaker of the house, I think he can take it.

    • November 18, 2009 8:55 am

      When did Beck say he would like to murder the speaker of the house?

    It is typical for brainwashed masses to cheer a person they consider a potential enemy, it also shows how far gone we are as a nation.
    The greatest nation ever, is like a whore, and Beck is trying to give that whore some clothing to grab for the last shred of decency. Sad.
