If your place of worship facilitates speakers who inculcate ill-will towards fellow beings, please speak up, it is a place to seek peace and not ill-will. Churches, Synagogues, Mosques, Temples have all inadvertently allowed such men to speak. Save sanctity of the place.

Thank God, Glenn Beck is Gone

For the first time in three years, I gathered the courage and patience to watch this buffoon for 11 minutes as entertainment.  Sadly, I know people in my ambit who love him and I am trying to understand how can they like this man’s message, how can they believe in it?
If you have the time watch this idiot Glen Beck makes a fool of himself.

Media Matters, Color of Change, and Jewish Funds for Justice Release Statements On Beck's Final Fox Show

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 Washington, DC -- Today, Media Matters for America joined Color of Change and Jewish Funds for Justice in releasing the following statements on the final installment of Glenn Beck's 5 pm show on Fox News Channel
 
"After two years of vitriol, the public has had enough of Glenn Beck. His ratings, relevance, and -- after more than 300 advertisers abandoned the program -- the revenue he produced for Fox were all in decline," said David Brock, founder of Media Matters for America. "However, Fox as a network is still a home for misinformation and hate. Our work is far from over."

"We are happy to see Glenn Beck's show come to an end," said Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorofChange.org. "Beck consistently played racial politics by building conspiracy theories that relied on prejudice to explain problems in our society, with his actions being consistently condoned by Fox executives Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes. We're glad to see Fox end the show, although it only happened once its business interests were threatened by the departure of more than 300 advertisers, which has been attributed to the efforts of our members and our multi-year campaign."

"Through his own poor judgment Beck became a liability to Fox," said Simon Greer, President of Progressive Jewish Alliance & Jewish Funds for Justice. "Beck's divisiveness and hate mongering have been rejected by not only a broad spectrum of Jews, but by a diverse group of people and organizations representing all kinds of Americans who care about the common good."

Finally! After two long years of extremism, race baiting, lies, and conspiracy theories that have divided our country, Glenn Beck is ending his nightly Fox News show.

But the fight against right-wing misinformation on the airwaves is far from over. Every day, we watch the dishonesty, bias, and political manipulation on Fox News and throughout the right-wing media. And we work to prevent the destructive impact it has on every national debate from health care to immigration reform, from climate change to LGBT rights.

 Now is not a time to sit back; it's a time to ramp up.

  1. Here, Here. I can't believe there are no comments on this blog yet! I'm sitting here watching Beck's last show thru a profound bit of self-discipline run amok and he's using this last show to rebuke all the "haters" out there that have scolded him for his dim-witted chalk talks. Of course Fox isn't giving him the boot, he, the mighty Glen, is on a self-prescribed mission to right all the wrongs purveyed by "regular" media. He even went so far as to compare his show to The Daily Show and how his monologues were the longest ever. In fact Jon Stewart only spent 22 minutes on the air per show while he spent 42;obvious evidence to the superiority of intellect. Uh, Glen, I hate to be the one to tell you, but The Daily Show is a 30 minute show so by extension Jon would spend 44 minutes to your 42 if only he had a whole hour. I couldn't agree more, good riddance Beck, you're lucky you made it away from movie night with a little fermented grape juice on your blanket. It's rough out amongst the real people ain't it.

  2. Amen to that. Thank God Beck is gone and all the BS, lies, doomsday prophecies are gone. Beck belongs in a friekin mental institution for being such a nut. I can't understand how people can believe the garbage he spewed on the air either. Goes to show how gullible and ignorant his followers are.
    Now we just need Hannity and the Fox News Network to disappear(which we can keep dreaming of).
    By the way, if you are a Beck, Hannity and Fox News fan and my words make you mad, well spare me your bull because I don't want to hear it.

  3. Glen Beck was nothing more than a propaganda mouth piece for the republican party. That being said the democratic party is exactly the same, these two parties are owned and bought for by the global elite and the corporate politicians who's agenda is not that of the American people. Mean while groups like ADL and southern poverty law centre are nothing more than communist, anti Christian, anti liberty and anti constitution anti arab/muslim pro Israel, that is ushering a one world Jewish state global enslavement!
