Shall We Worship the Golden Calf of Glenn Beck? OR….Where’s Moses When You Need Him?
Out of all the people that are sticking up for the dirty trick that Ted Cruz pulled in the Iowa primary, I must say, it’s Glenn Beck’s defense of Ted Cruz that is the most disturbing.
Hey…I was one of the people who way back when fell in love with Glenn Beck when he was on FOX. I loved the history he taught. I loved the way he kept trying to explain the progressive moments. I loved his show and watched it every afternoon. And I even went out and brought his first book. Which..by the way, was I think the ONLY book he wrote by himself. He pushed that book endlessly on his radio show…like it was the next best thing since Ayn Rand decided to enlightened the world about communism, and trust me I was pretty excited when I bought it…but: It was a piece of crap. Basically it was about a man who tried to pick up a woman in a bar, and in-between the obvious bio-notes of Glenn’s alcoholic past, he tried to present some deep dark secrets…and it was just….crap. After that, Glen wisely got other authors to write his books, which were much more informative and worth reading. They did all the work, while he raked in the rewards.
When Glenn left FOX, probably due to the fact that he started preaching religion every day, I followed him to the web. Then, one day I heard he was coming to my local book store.
And the strangest thing happened at that book store. I remember standing in line and watching Glenn Beck greet each person. I got a REALLY creepy gut feeling in my stomach that..I instantly did not like the man. He reeked of fakeness. His smile was the same to everyone. He was TOO nice. TOO sweet. TOO fake, and too rehearsed. In other words, he was not real to me.
Now, I’m an entertainer, and I know what’s it’s like to put on a persona. To me, I was witnessing a man who thought he had been chosen by God himself to do something. He was the answer to God himself, and America itself, and …I can’t describe it…it was creepy. I have never trusted that kind of person.
I remember hearing Glenn say in one of his famous tearful blockbuster confessions, that he had wrecked his first marriage by being a selfish alcoholic, and now, he was cured. SOME…alcoholics are mean and cruel people. Don’t kid yourself, they were mean and cruel before they started drinking. Do you think it just disappears when they get sober? Not all the time. I worked in bars all my life, and alcohol just exaggerates your core personality. Some drunks are kind…and then…there are the mean drunks. If I had to take an educated guess: I’d say Glenn was the mean drunk.
To his credit, he got sober.
Anyway, I gave him a picture of George Washington that day, drawn on a fan that had taking me hours to make, and he just gave me the queerest look…as if it was a piece of junk. I think I remember him saying thank you…Well, no…. I actually don’t remember that…he quickly handed it to his butt-buddy…and you know, I can’t say he wasn’t nice to everyone…
There was just something not right about him.
So, I continued to listen to Glenn day after day, until he started viciously attacking Donald Trump. It’s one thing to support a candidate…and I would have understood if Donald Trump had the reputation of the Clintons, but what had Tump done to deserve such hatred?
Not a thing. Glenn Beck was out to crucify him no matter what.
I wasn’t the only one who stopped listening to him. Millions of Beck followers got turned off by his hatred. It was frankly, shocking.
And what did Glenn Beck have to say about what Ted Cruz did to Ben Carson? Remember, Ted Cruz’s people told all the voters on that important night that Ben Carson had dropped out. He stuck up for Ted. Why…anybody who says they are leaving for a change of clothes MEANS that they are dropping out of the race, said Glenn, and Ted had every right to go after his votes.
Unless Ben Carson had made a formal announcement that he WAS dropping out of the race, Ted Cruz’s people should not have told ANYONE that he was out of the race.
It’s that simple. That was a big fat lie…and it was said on purpose to get Ben’s people. Glenn pretty much admits that.
Sorry Glenn. ….Jesus is NOT on your side when it comes to bearing false witness, and trying to twist the truth. You are NOT a true Christian. Obama has his skin, you have your ‘faith’ and neither one of you has morals.
What is good about all of this, is Ben Carson, proved to be the man of honor in this. Ben Carson proved to be the better man.
NOT Ted Cruz. And certainly not Glenn Beck.
The fact that what Ted Cruz did was not illegal, according to Neil Cavuto, shows you why Ben Carson and Donald Trump seem to be the only two honest people here. It damn well SHOULD be illegal, AND as Ben Carson has pointed out, it’s exactly why people are fed up with politicians.
Pride cometh before the fall, Glenn.
After I saw Glenn Beck in person that day, I still remember the horrible feeling I had in my gut when I met him.
The feeling said: Glenn Beck is all about…Glenn Beck.
He is making himself a millionaire off the desperation of the poor people of America. Glenn is making us all THINK..he cares. He doesn’t give a two-bit about you, it’s all about him.
Ted Cruz and Glenn Beck.
What else did the Bible say? Beware of false prophets.
Remember when Glenn Beck was buying up priceless treasures of American History? And then he put it all in a big motor trailer, sent it on tour and charged the American people just to see it?
P.T. Barnum would be proud.
Nobody Thinks Donald Trump would have let you see it all for free.
But then again, maybe this is all, as Glenn Says: Much ado about nothing. Read his own words and decide for yourself:
Is Glenn the next Moses? Or just another Golden Calf?
