Right Winger Mark Levin Goes After Glenn Beck

They’re going to start eating their own…

Conservative radio personality Mark Levin had some unkind words to say about fellow conservative radio personality Glenn Beck. Levin said, “Decide what you are. A circus clown, self-identified. Or a thoughtful and wise person. It’s hard to be both. You can’t wear the clown nose and not wear the clown nose at the same time.” He also had this to say:

I have no idea what philosophy Glenn Beck is promoting. And neither does he. It’s incoherent. One day it’s populist, the next it’s libertarian bordering on anarchy, next it’s conservative but not really, etc. And to what end? I believe he has announced that he is no longer going to endorse candidates because our problems are bigger than politics. Well, of course, our problems are not easily dissected into categories, but to reject politics is to reject the manner in which we try to organize ourselves. [..]

Finally, Beck is fond of congratulating himself for being the only or the first host to criticize George Bush’s spending. This is demonstrably false. … And as someone who fought liberal Republicans in the trenches when campaigning for Reagan in 1976 and 1980, I don’t need lectures from Beck, who was nowhere to be found, about big-spending Republicans.

Glenn Becks UK Show Without Sponsors for Almost a Week!

To all the challenged individuals who refuse to read and continually ask how the boycott is going  – here’s a question for you… Do you like apples?

Glenn Beck has lost 116 sponsors and his show in the UK has been without a single sponsor for SIX days!

How d’you like them apples??

The U.K. broadcast of Glenn Beck’s eponymous television program was forced to air free of paid advertisements on four consecutive days last week. This according to StopBeck.com, an extension of the anti-Beck campaign created by ColorOfChange.org. StopBeck.com confirmed that, with the latest group of defections from Beck’s overseas broadcast, Fox News Channel was forced to fill commercial breaks with news headlines and local weather updates from its U.K.-based sister network, Sky News, instead of paid advertisements.

The news comes on the heels of a new group of U.S. companies who have asked Fox News Channel to stop their ads from running or pledged not to run ads on the show going forward. The latest U.S. defections — Allstate Insurance, Anheuser-Busch, Best Western International, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals (maker of Flomax), Brother International Corporation, Hear Music, Idaho Potato Commission, Intersections Inc., Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School, Marriott International, Nestlé USA, Republic of Macedonia, Starkist Co., United Healthcare, USFidelis, Volkswagen and Western Union — coupled with the international movement to bring the total number of companies distancing themselves from Beck to over one hundred.

“We’re incredibly thrilled that StopBeck.com has taken our campaign and successfully executed it internationally,” said James Rucker, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org. “This is a huge blow against Glenn Beck. As we continue our fight against those that support Beck domestically, we will use this victory as further proof that more and more companies are taking a stand against his racial demagoguery.”

“People now on both sides of the Atlantic are using Twitter and other social media to let companies know that by advertising on Beck’s program, they are subsidizing hate,” said Angelo S. Carusone, lead organizer of StopBeck.com.  “Fox News’ willingness to use filler from Sky News, rather than address Beck’s fear mongering, raises real questions about the network’s priorities.”

Original Story

Our television media purchases are dictated by our marketing plan and are chosen based on time of day, such as early morning (6:00 – 10:00 a.m.) or primetime (8:00 to 11:00 p.m.); channel (ABC, Lifetime, ESPN, etc.) and audience demographics.

We do not dictate what program is on when our commercial airs. But we do frequently evaluate our media purchases to ensure that the programs we choose match our brand’s target demographics and overall advertising plan. In doing so, we have chosen to not air our commercial during Glenn Beck’s program going forward given a number of alternatives that meet our advertising plan’s criteria.

Thanks again for your inquiry.

Glenn Beck Caught in a Lie, Then Edits Clip of Rachel Maddow

The other day Rachel Maddow called Glenn Beck out for his lie about previously using storms and heavy snowfall to somehow “disprove” climate change. Beck responded, as he is known to do, by spewing more falsehoods with a dash of video editing for good measure… Also note that she mentions his lost sponsors.

Fox News’ Sarah Palin a Hypocrite? You Betcha!

Recently, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel used the political incorrect term “f***ing retarded” describing the strategy of Senate liberals. Former quitter governor of Alaska and current Fox News personality Sarah Palin called for Rahm Emanuel to be fired in a post on Facebook, equating Emanuel’s statement to using the “N-word.”

PALIN: I would ask the president to show decency in this process by eliminating one member of that inner circle, Mr. Rahm Emanuel, and not allow Rahm’s continued indecent tactics to cloud efforts. Yes, Rahm is known for his caustic, crude references about those with whom he disagrees, but his recent tirade against participants in a strategy session was such a strong slap in many American faces that our president is doing himself a disservice by seeming to condone Rahm’s recent sick and offensive tactic.

The Obama Administration’s Chief of Staff scolded participants, calling them, “F—ing retarded,” according to several participants, as reported in the Wall Street Journal.

Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the “N-word” or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities – and the people who love them – is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking.

However, a few weeks ago she told Glenn Beck that she was worried that people can no longer use politically incorrect terms in the United States. Here’s a clip (discussion takes part around 4:30):

YouTube Preview Image

Obviously, Beck is no stranger to politically incorrect and insensitive language. One incident that comes to mind is Beck referring to the anti-gay slur used by Grey’s Anatomy star Isaiah Washington toward co-star T.R. Knight as “a naughty name.

BECK: But anyway, Dave, what is the — what is the controversy? One of the guys called another guy a naughty name.

And, don’t forget this comment from Beck about race:

BECK: African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term. I mean, that’s not a race.

Palin has yet to condemn Rush Limbaugh for using the term several times (i.e. calling liberals “retards” and calling for a “retard summit”).

LIMBAUGH: Our political correct society is acting like some giant insult’s taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards. I mean these people, these liberal activists are kooks.

They are loony tunes. And I’m not going to apologize for it, I’m just quoting Emanuel. It’s in the news.

I think their big news is he’s out there calling Obama’s number one supporters f’ing retards. So now there’s going to be a meeting. There’s going to be a retard summit at the White House. Much like the beer summit between Obama and Gates and that cop in Cambridge.

So, here we have a woman with a baby that has Down Syndrome, complaining about people using politically incorrect language, while complaining to others about the problem with political correctness, who are politically incorrect themselves, but is also the same person who, according to Levi Johnson, calls Trig, her own child, her “retarded baby.

Where’s the “fair and balanced” outrage? She fits right in at FNC…

Honda is 100th Sponsor to Leave Glenn Beck / Fox News

Honda, while stating that they wish to remain politically neutral, originally provided this neutral response:

Thanks for taking the time to share your concerns with us. We are now at the end of our advertising schedule with that channel and have noted your comments.

Honda is politically neutral and strives to exceed ethical standards. We apply these policies to our communication strategy with our best endeavor but as you say we cannot determine the program or editorial content around which we advertise.

When asked for clarification, Honda confirmed that they will no longer be sponsors of Glenn Beck and Fox News.

We have no plans to renew

Wannabe Pimp James O’Keefe Arrested by FBI

Remember the filmmaker that posed as a pimp to try and bust ACORN, while recording the events without permission? Fox News praised him as “Power Player of the Week,” calling him an “undercover reporter” and a “fascinating character.” The same man, James O’Keefe, was recently arrested by the FBI, along with a few other conspirators, allegedly trying to illegally wiretap Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) office phones.

James O’Keefe and three other individuals were arrested and “charged with entering federal property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony” while “dressed as telephone company employees.” One of the other people arrested was Robert Flanagan, is the son of William Flanagan, the acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Louisiana.

Fox News devoted many hours to the ACORN situation, including repeatedly showing edited segments of the filming by O’Keefe. Perhaps, not too strangely, Fox News was mostly silent about O’Keefe’s arrest. In fact FNC personalities who scolded the rest of the media for supposedly ignoring the ACORN films, including Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, didn’t mention O’Keefe’s arrest on Monday at all.

However, Glenn Beck has now spoken out about the incident and it may surprise you… unless you’re not surprised by Beck throwing people under the bus.

BECK: If they were doing that — that’s Watergate. Insanely stupid and illegal. … I haven’t heard his side, but you don’t do anything illegal, that’s Watergate territory. You just don’t do that. And besides that I don’t think you go dressed up — I mean it’s a senator. For the love of Pete, it’s a senator.

CO-HOST: First of all, it’s different than an ACORN office. Because you’re talking about a U.S. senator here! [...]

BECK: It’s exactly the same thing I said for the state dinner. You must not allow — the Secret Service must come down on these peoples in the White House like a box of rocks. You don’t do anything to hurt security for the president or for a senator or anybody else. You don’t mess around with it. Ever, ever, ever, ever. … We have enough [evidence] to, I believe, condemn.

Keep in mind that Beck seemed to fully support O’Keefe playing dress up and filming ACORN staff without their consent. He never questioned the probability that it was also illegal.

In related news, Salt Lake City GOP Cancels Keynote Speech By Inspirational Speaker ACORN Pimp James O’Keefe! In October, Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) and 31 Republican co-sponsors offered a resolution praising Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe for their “investigation in the fraudulent and illegal practices and misuse of taxpayer dollars” by ACORN. While Olson stated that he does not condone the recent events, there is still no word on whether the resolution has been withdrawn.

Glenn Beck Producer Leaves FNC for MSNBC

Gresham Streigel, senior producer on Glenn Beck’s Fox News show, has left the channel and joined FNC rival, MSNBC. Streigel, who has also worked for Fox News for 13 years on shows such as Your World with Neil Cavuto and Fox & Friends, is now working for David Shuster. Beck’s team was, reportedly, trying to push the producer out. It’s probably more likely that it’s someone simply following a paycheck…

Glenn Beck Politicized Obama’s Reaction to Haiti Earthquake

Last week, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh jumped on the anti-Obama bandwagon, again, to attack the President for his hurried response to the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti where it’s reported that death tolls may reach 200,000.

BECK: I also believe this is dividing the nation…to where the nation sees him react so rapidly on Haiti and yet he couldn’t react rapidly on Afghanistan. He couldn’t react rapidly on Ft. Hood. He couldn’t react rapidly on our own airplanes with an underwear bomber…it doesn’t make sense. [...] Three different events and Haiti is the only one. I think personally that it deepens he divide to see him react this rapidly to Haiti.

Polls showed that most Americans approved of Obama’s handling of the other incidents. Additionally, other Fox News personalities including Bill O’Reilly and Laura Ingraham disagree with Beck’s bashing of the President for his reaction time.

It’s good that he reacts quickly to Haiti,” O’Reilly said last night on Fox News, later asking Ingraham, “You have no problem with his quick response to Haiti?” “Yeah, no,” she replied.

Perhaps Beck should provide a guidelines of appropriate response times for others to refer to in times of emergency… Would it be based on the number of deaths, or the ratings desired?

Beck: ‘African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term… not a race.’

The following quote is from Glenn Beck while discussing the U.S. census…

BECK: African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term. I mean, that’s not a race. Your ancestry is from Africa and now you live in America. Ok so you were brought over — either your family was brought over through the slave trade or you were born here and your family emigrated here or whatever but that is not a race.

YouTube Preview Image

That from someone who states that he doesn’t have “a lot of African-American friends, and I think part of it is because I’m afraid that I would be in an open conversation, and I would say something that somebody would take wrong, and then it would be a nightmare.”

He also recently asked a group of black conservatives, “Why not identify yourself as Americans?” he asked, adding, “I don’t identify myself as white, or a white American.”

Also note that Beck refused to define what “white culture” is, in reference to his rant during which he called President Obama a racist.

WorldNetDaily Attacks Glenn Beck on Birther Smear

Conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck recently had this to say about “birthers,” those other conspiracy theorists who question the validity (or existence) of President Obama’s birth certificate:

BECK: Today there is a concerted effort on all radio stations to get Birthers on the air. I have to tell you, are you working for the Barack Obama administration? I mean, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. [...]

BECK:If I were Barack Obama, I would say, no, now, wait a minute; why do that when these people are so discrediting themselves because if I can get them to discredit themselves…

WorldNetDaily, which is a source frequently used by Fox News, didn’t appear to appreciate Beck’s statements, relating Beck to “Obama’s apologists.”

The ongoing dialogue then spun off into ridicule as Beck caricatured those who question the sitting president’s eligibility with straw-man arguments reminiscent of jibes made by Obama’s apologists in other news outlets. [...]

“Birthers,” however, reflect a far greater diversity of opinion than is assumed by Beck’s characterization. … While other top radio hosts, including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Mark Levin and Lou Dobbs, have all said unequivocally and publicly that the Obama eligibility issue is legitimate and worthy, a few – including Beck and fellow Fox TV host Bill O’Reilly – have taken the position that the issue is, in O’Reilly’s words, “bogus.” Both Beck and O’Reilly cite the contemporaneous appearance of birth announcements in two Honolulu newspapers as prima facie evidence Obama was born in Hawaii and “birthers” are conspiracy nuts.

Glenn Beck ‘Unrepentant’ About Robert Creamer Falsehood

Glenn Beck has repeatedly called progressive activist Robert Creamer an “unrepentant convicted felon,” but Beck conveniently ignores the facts and his own previous statement that make this assertion false.

BECK: But first I want to show you the latest video clip from Robert Creamer – thanks Kyle Olson and Andrew Breitbart from BigGovernment.com. They sent this in to us. He is the unrepentant convicted felon who wrote a book while in prison on how to achieve progressive goals.

[...]

BECK: Wow. Let that marinate for a second here, America. An unrepentant convicted felon is trying to help out for the fundamental transformation that Obama will bring home. Fundamental transformation – I know I have heard that someplace before. Where, where?

Robert Creamer has stated that his actions (federal bank fraud and tax charges) were “serious errors in judgement,” he was “foolish” and he pleaded “guilty.” Not only that, but he paid back the money he owed to the IRS. Also worth noting is Beck’s own admittance on December 8 that Creamer apologized.

BECK: Creamer apologized for his conduct, but claimed just to be overzealous while working for a good cause.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first smear – Beck has also compared Creamer to Bernie Madoff and a sexual predator. Beck also invented a conspiracy theory that the security breach at the November 24 White House State Dinner was intended to divert attention from Creamer.
