Glenn Beck the hook

Yahoo Homepage found this important enough to HEADLINE there this morning. It's a phone call where Glenn Beck yelled for a caller to hang up..........the headline is "Glenn Beck's Screaming Fit". He did scream. Once. Other than that, he straightens the woman out and shows later how wrong she is. But, Yahoo has to HEADLINE it.

Good thing there isn't anything important going the fact that more and more people are learning what the new health bill will do to America, how small business owners are saying they're going to have to downsize or close because of what's coming.........

Glenn Beck yelled. See Yahoo for details. It's really important to them. The poor Left...they have EVERYTHING right now and the threat of Glenn Beck is MONSTROUS, huh? :=) Come to think of it, I guess it's more important to the Left to focus on a Conservative finally losing his temper than to have Americans focus on the truth about health care. Ya, I get that. Sad.
Just saw THIS.... The Yahoo title is "Senate Can Pass Health Care Bill DESPITE 'WHACKY' Cost" You can't make this stuff up.

This is the leftist strategy, you know. Let's review:
(1) Crucify Joe the Plumber for having the audacity to speak out against income distribution.
(2) Comb through Sarah Palin's garbage to see what kind of personal habits she has.
(3) Brand Frank Ricci as litigeous and make fun of the fact that he suffers a debilitation.
(4) Castigate a Hispanic fireman for the nerve to join in the lawsuit.
(5) Accuse O'Reilly of causing the death of an abortionist simply because he criticized the doctor on a television and radio program.
(6) Threaten Glenn Beck's family because he has a libertarian point of view.
(7) Work to impose restrictions on free speech in order to silence dissenting opinions.
(8) Castigate Mark Sanford, but ignore Charlie Rangel's and Barney Frank's corruption.
But do not question the activities of the Obama Gang, nor any of their disreputable behaviors.

I don't know how we got to the point in this country when almost everyone accepts a double standard in personal behavior. How do we ignore the unsavory associations of a federal judge/supreme court nominee because she's Hispanic, apply a completely different standard to everyone else, and feel good about ourselves as a society?

I will say this: it is ruinous to our society and dangerous to the future of our country.

Wise up, America.

Oh, MAN, Mustang...I'm going to be on GATHERING STORM radio in a month and you just wrote down the start of a list that I just told Always I'd write down for notes for the program..THANKS! Of course, between now and then, we'll have SO MANY other instances of the lies and obfuscation of the leftwinger media that we should be able to fill five HOURS of radio time.

Thanks, buddy..excellent comment. (as usual)

Americans: If we don't get a media which represents all Americans soon in fairness and even-handed approaches to the REAL news, we're in so much bigger trouble than even you and I think...We want ALL the news not just what OBAMA wants us to know.


Z said...

Is this funny? Mr Z hadn't read my comment about five hours and I told him I was going to be on the show and covering the media and he said "The BIAS of OUR media? Does that radio show run FIVE HOURS?"

Great minds!

Ducky's here said...

Oh man, Glenn's taken off to his screechy place again and starts emitting noises only dogs can hear.

Our media is a damn circus carnival and this gibone is one of the head geeks.

Ducky's here said...

Well mustang, you know what they say about payback.

Write this down. Despite your extremist viewpoint you will eventually realize that Obama is governing in the center and will take the independent vote. Job 1 is the destruction and elimination of what passed for the Bush base.
Call it undeserved but like Clint said in "Unforgiven". "Deserve's got nothing to do with it". Buh-bye.

Z said...

Ducky, THANK GOD the polls don't agree with you.

Is that a screech I hear from the 5% far left margins?

Eh. The caller was just spouting off liberal talking points. Some nerve (idiocy) to call Beck's program without having listened to it a few times first.

Some lady who has never been a victim of socialized medicine has no place singing it's praises.

I recently worked with an woman who spent 3 years in Canada. She told me of multiple occasions when she was denied health care because she was not Canadian. Oh, and her Canadian fiance? He had nearly as much trouble getting care. He waited in queue for four months for a total knee replacement. Her description of the hospitals they went to made my skin crawl.

No thanks.

I watched the video, this is who Glen Beck is. Fortunately, he makes his point. What would we do without our 'talkers' who know how to make a point? She was one obnoxious woman.

and...everything Mustang said:-)

Z - we will never get that media you are talking about. The world in which the media elite lives is just too cushy, and the luxury to think you "care" so much more than any other human, is too self-fulfilling.

We will have to depend on Americans like you and me and your friends and mine - who will que up each and every day to listen to FOX and conservative talk radio.

Besides that, Beck is interesting. Liberal talk, and networks are never interesting and I don't much of anyone is listening.

The whole issue of the war, the money for the war, the Paulson betrayal of Bush at the very last minuted (well-and-early-planned in my view), and the enticing idea of the first half-Black president - it was just too much for all those masses who are absolutely stupid.

Always On Watch said...

I do a lot of yelling these days too. So what?

I feel more yelling coming on right now.

Duck said, Obama is governing in the center....

AOW guffaws and asks, "Off your meds again today? Sheesh."

Always On Watch said...

Mustang has indeed given you some crib notes. LOL.

Z said...

Right,Always!? (as if I need more info to hate the media for!?) :-)

Maggie, it has to go back to FAIR MEDIA,'just the facts'

I listen to Cronkite's death coverage and wonder "Is HE the one who started personality journalism....pushing so snidely and effectively in HIS politics' direction?"

Yes, it might well have been him. Huntley and Brinkley started a kind of political personality media but they were pretty straight guys..."Just the facts, ma'am".
Not Cronkite.

Walter Cronkite: The most trusted name in America, this according to a survey conducted back in the late 1980s. A news reader.

Same poll: the second most trust named in America: Betty Crocker (a fictional character).

The prosecution rests, your honor.

Maggie M. Thornton said...

My lasting memory of Walter Cronkite is him, Hill and Bill on Ted Kennedy's yacht.

Maggie M. Thornton said...

Z - about going back to FAIR MEDIA, I don't see it happen.

Always On Watch said...

People are confusing content with the sound of a man's voice.

They're doing the same with BHO.

Cronkite's passing will give the media the excuse they need not to cover the details of the health-care bills now in Congress.

Z said...

I swear, AlwaysOnWatch, I know it's not true, but it's like the O thugs have hit men out there ready to strike whenever THE ONE needs a smoke screen for yet another abominable situation he thinks Americans are too stupid to want ...!!
One smaller situation that comes to my mind is the "muslim envoy" who's appointment got covered up..that woman they weren't sure was a muslim at the WH, remember? (can you imagine!?) Ya, she got selected on a Friday afternoon and the only way we knew was's some info on her:
This was covered NOWHERE in the msm..NOWHERE

Friday afternoon news is BIG for the Obama folks who get their advice from the 3 bigwig producers they hired from CBS and CNN. So far, it's working pretty darned well.

I think if I was getting death threats I'd "lose" it too. Beck has a family. Plus he loves America, and is seeing her brought to her knees.

But, as I've said before radical leftists don't care. If you don't agree with them, what may happen to you is of no consequence. In fact, they'd like us gone.

History has proven that, over and over again, and it looks like it's about to prove it once more.


Jess said...

I am glad he did scream at this woman. She wouldn't shut up and listen and as soon as she started with "you people..." you knew what was going to happen next.

I don't blame Beck for getting ticked off at what she said, it's the same thing we hear over and over again from the left directed at ANYONE who doesn't agree with them. Libertarians, Independents, Republicans---believe in private property rights, capitalism, you know all that good stuff? Whackos like the caller who had GB on the edge of insanity simply point the finger and say "you people..." and we are all so sick of it.

The fact remains that there's a system which has faults ok so let's fix those faults but let's not throw out the whole damn thing because for the most part it works.

As far as Obama getting the independent vote, he's not getting mine in 2012. No way, no how.
