Glenn Beck Still Disappoints

A few years ago, when I was an officer in the Libertarian Party, I wrote an article about Glenn Beck’s call screener (Sarah) hanging up on me when I called his radio show to discuss his mischaracterizations of libertarians. Mr. Beck found out about my article and screamed on the air, “I want to talk to this guy!”

Hearing that, I called the show and got a very few seconds, on-air, before a top-of-the-hour break, as he attempted to make libertarians out to be heroin addicts. I remained calm and polite, so he didn’t get the satisfaction of inciting me to lose my cool and come off sounding like a crazy person.

In typical talk show host fashion, he hung up on me and threw in another mischaracterization before going to break. (Many hosts need to use the mute button or hang up on callers to win debates.)

Fast forward about four years.

Now, Mr. Beck is calling himself a libertarian. The things I warned about, on my radio show years ago, are now coming to pass and Glenn is beginning to wake up a bit and give them some coverage, but he still has a long way to go.

Today, throughout his show, he ridiculed the “birthers” (those who are still demanding to see Obama’s birth certificate) and other conspiracy theory people and suggested that they self-censor to avoid being labeled nut-jobs. He also touched on Ron Paul supporters and those who talk about “Bilderburger” meetings, making fun of them in a fake caller skit.

Marx would be proud of the character assassinations and peer pressure.

When I heard that, I immediately thought of a quote from Mark Twain:

“In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”

If you are stopped by the police at a highway checkpoint, for no reason other than you happened to be traveling down the road upon which the checkpoint was located, you are required to show proof of insurance and proof that you have jumped through all the hoops government requires in order for you to drive on the streets (driver’s license).

In order to get that license in the first place, you are required to produce your birth certificate and other forms of identification, to prove you are a citizen and who you say you are.

At border-area checkpoints, you are required to prove that you are a citizen in order to continue traveling through the area.

If having to prove we are who we common folk say we are, that we are citizens and are properly credentialed, is so very important to law enforcement and homeland security why are you a nut-job if you simply ask the President to abide by the same kind of standard?

Why hasn’t the man produced the real certificate – not the worthless “live birth” stuff – to silence critics and set the record straight? Talk about elitism – and all this coming from someone who constantly preaches equality and respect!

The President should practice what he preaches – and if it will stop him from further leading us into Communism, all the better. And Mr. Beck should get with the program.

Don’t let anyone pressure you into silencing your voices! Say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done to preserve your freedom, regardless of what Glenn Beck or anyone else has to say about it.

Company Boycotts

Today, radio talk show host, Glenn Beck, reported that Sharp electronics started a “social responsibility” program, back in October 2008, to educate students in elementary schools about global warming and solar power. Apparently, the “social responsibility” part is advertising and brand identification disguised as “green” thinking.

Any company who would sell our children–and country–down the river of enviro-communism, in order to increase their bottom line, will NEVER again get my business.

In my opinion, they’re helping to indoctrinate young children (remember Lenin?) in enviro-communism, whether or not they even realize exactly what they’re doing, in order to hopefully cultivate a new generation who will be more interested in “green” technologies–such as Sharp’s solar panel products. I’m willing to bet that not one single child in any of those classrooms has enough money to buy solar panels for a house, so in my mind there is no doubt about indoctrination, for the future.

Don’t misunderstand me; there’s nothing wrong with using “green” technology. The problem comes when a generation of children–with no idea of what’s really going on–has been purposely indoctrinated with “green” ideas, because it then becomes much easier, when they are adults, for government to institute laws and ordinances that destroy private property and wealth, all in the name of the “environment.” Getting children used to being “green,” at an early age, is necessary for this type of transformation to take place in the country–and world–and it’s already happening, rapidly.

The United Nations stated, in 1976, that property should not be held as a “private resource,” and the Communist Manifesto states that government will have to get control of natural resources, remove all distinction between the town and country and redistribute people equitably across the land, so this is what you’re getting–and they will do it, in large part, by getting to your children.

So, Sharp is another company I will add to the list of businesses that I boycott (for various reasons):

Bank of America, GE (General Electric, parent company of NBC), SC Johnson (and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation), e-surance, Safe Auto insurance, Disney (parent company of ABC), Sharp.
