Glenn Beck Headed To Israel For Restoring Courage Rally

Filed under: Media MinutePolitikEvents

glenn beck headed to israel for restoring courage rally

So…this is happening.

Today, Glenn Beck announced on his radio show that he'll be heading to Israel this August for a Restoring Courage rally, which will take place in Jerusalem.

Here's what his website says about the event:

"Taking a stand is not always easy, but now more than ever it is imperative that we live with conviction and do the right thing. It is time for us to courageously stand with Israel."

Here's what Beck had to say about his rally:

"I invite you to join me in Israel this summer to stand together and show the world what living a life of faith and honor really means. I invite you to join me in my quest to Restore Courage."

"God is involved in man's affairs, but so is the force of darkness. I believe I've been asked to stand in Jerusalem. Many in the history of man have had the opportunity to stand with the Jewish people…and they have failed."

"We have gone to the capitals of our states and to the capitals of our government. We have talked to all the power brokers. The only power broker, the only seat of government that can and will solve this problem with or without us is God. It is time to return inside the walls that surround Jerusalem and stand with people of all faiths, all around the world."

"In August, whether I’m there with seven people or 10 people or there alone, I will be counted and I will stand. I ask you to join me. I also ask you to take this message globally, to take this to every corner of the earth. If you have family living overseas, this is not an America solution. This is a people of faith solution. This is a people all over the world solution. I ask you to help get this word out.”

Glenn Beck Calls Glee A Horror Show

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGlee

glenn-beck-calls-glee-horror-show.jpg

WTF?!

Glenn Beck went on an extremely long-winded rant on his Fox news show Thursday night, calling Glee a "horror show."

Yes, really.

Beck said that the show "stands out and stands against almost every value that I have" and added:

"I've watched it in stunned horror combined with a sense of admiring awe. It is a brilliant, brilliant show. Very well done. But it is a horror show."

He explains that the show is a "nightmare" because all the characters are "sleeping with everybody else," and that it promotes "self-gratification."

Um, yeah! That's what makes it so awesome!

LOLz, we kid, we kid. No, but seriously, Glenn needs to lighten up. It's a television show that provides entertainment and that's it.

He needs to focus his time and energy on REAL issues affecting today's youth. A show like Glee that promotes honesty, creativity, and being who you truly are is the LAST thing he needs to spend his time criticizing.

Glenn Beck Calls New My Chemical Romance Song Propaganda!

glenn beck accuses my chemical romance of spreading propaganda in new song

Of course he'd think this!

Glenn Beck has spoken out against My Chemical Romance for their new song Sing, which he's referring to as propaganda!

Here's what he had to rant say about it:

"Pay attention to the lyrics. This is propaganda … it's an anthem saying 'Join us.' How can you and I possibly win against that?"

"You don't have to live by the standards that society has set. You know what is right."

In response to Beck's comments, the band's guitarist Ray Toro tweeted a link to Beck's segment on their song, and he wrote the following:

Mission accomplished

Here's what guitarist Frank Iero tweeted about it:

Yay! F— that dude's face with Obama's birth certificate

Not the most pleasant imagery, but Beck HAD to know that they'd fired back at him.

What do U think about Glenn Beck's comments? Do U think My Chemical Romance is spreading propaganda?

Glenn Beck Leaving NY, Developing New "Research Department"

Filed under: Media MinutePolitik

glenn beck leaving ny and starting research department

We're not sure exactly how we feel about this…

Earlier this month, we learned that the ever-polarizing Glenn Beck would be phasing out his show on Fox and stepping down as host.

Now, Glenn Beck has announced that he'll be leaving New York, moving out of his Connecticut mansion, and developing a new "research department" with retired CIA and military.

Here's what he had to say about it:

“What you are about to see in a few months is a new way to communicate with each other. [I'm going to] build a way to deliver news directly to the youth of America.”

"I will be leaving New York City. As we build a new media I’m not building it in New York."

We are very skeptical about this, as we're sure is the case with plenty of you out there.

…Maybe we were better off when he was preaching to the world from Fox. Guess we'll find out soon…

What do U think about Glenn Beck's cryptic announcement?

Glenn Beck Agrees to End Fox News Show

Filed under: Etc.Politik

Glenn Beck To End Fox Show

Despite your politics, Glenn Beck has been a polarizing figure.

We'd like to think that no matter who you are or what you believe, that you realize that he had some pretty absurd views from time to time. We're hoping that his popularity was due to mostly entertainment value instead of as an actual news source, but, we're probably and sadly wrong about that.

This news, that Glenn Beck has agreed to phase out his show and step down off the network as a host, comes with a brand new agreement between he and Fox. Apparently, the relationship will not end, as Beck's production company will continue to help produce and develop content for the station.

A lot of the speculation as to why Beck's ratings have been dropping has to do with that he's at his "best" when he's discussing politics and not harder news, such as the issues in Egypt and the Middle East:

Rumors have been swirling about Beck's television contract with Fox for months — and his ratings have been fizzling much longer. Through March 1, Beck's show was down 35 percent in total viewers in 2011 (averaging 1.9 million over the first seven weeks, compared to 2.93 million last year) and 44 percent in the 25-to-54-year-old demographic (447,000 vs. 793,000 a year ago). And it's seen nine consecutive month-over-month declines in total viewers, and seven among 25-to-54-year-olds.

Beck's ratings slump has been caused by a combination of factors, including a post-election hangover, a cyclical shift to harder news and his absurd views (even for conservatives) on Egypt and the Middle East.

Well, whatever the reason, a lot of people will be disappointed to see him go. A lot of people will equally be pumped up by the news. Either way, we're willing to bet that we haven't seen the last of him!

Are U unhappy or happy to see him leave??

Glenn Beck Dropped From New York Talk Radio

Filed under: Etc.Politik

glenn-beck-cut-from-radio.jpg

His audience just isn't in the Big Apple, we guess.

Sources have confirmed that New York radio station WOR has decided to drop Glenn Beck's radio show due to poor ratings. The WOR program director said they were "surprised" that Beck didn't bring in as many listeners as they had hoped, but are pleased to announce they are replacing him with Mike Gallagher, another radio talk show giant.

The director feels that Mike will do better than Glenn as a native New Yorker who will concentrate on more local issues.

Uh-huh. That's fine, but we don't think that's the reason people weren't tuning in to Glenn.

Do U?

Sarah Palin Doesn't Know The Difference Between North And South Korea!!!

Filed under: Oops!PolitikSarah Palin

sarah-palin-confuses-north-korea-for-south-korea.jpg

UGH!!

Get this woman a newspaper!

During a recent interview on Glenn Beck's radio show, Sarah Palin made a big oopsie, declaring her alliance with "North Korea!"

On the show, it sounded like Sarah was siding with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-il when she said:

"This speaks to a bigger picture here that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy. But obviously we’ve gotta stand with our North Korean allies."

Glenn rushed in and corrected her, saying, "South Korean allies."

Oy.
