Glenn Beck Wants You To Know People Like Him Are The Real Victims Of Discrimination (Video)

hannity-beckOut of all of the right-wing, conservative and just plain way-out-there figures in the media today, I have to say that I like Glenn Beck the most. You heard that right, I enjoy Glenn Beck even more than that bloviating windbag of self-righteous pontification and thinly-veiled racism also known as Sean Hannity.

No, I don’t like him as in I enjoy watching his program because he says smart, insightful things that make people really think about the state of our nation and life in general. I like him because he reminds me of an angry, paranoid, delusional small breed dog barking from the safety of his porch at everything that goes by. Like my insane chihuahua who believes that every small sound in the night is an intruder he must protect his food bowl from, Glenn Beck believes that everything is some sort of sinister plot by liberals and President Obama to put all white, heterosexual, conservative Christians in a FEMA camp and instill Sharia law across America.

Glenn Beck is like Alex Jones, except that unlike Alex Jones, I think Mr. Beck actually believes in most of the stuff that drips out of his mouth – and both of them promote fear and paranoia to sell stocks in gold, as well as a plethora of survivalist supplies. While Alex Jones caters to the Ron Paul “9-11 was a plot by the Jews on the behalf of their reptilian overlords from another dimension” crowd, Glenn Beck has made paranoia and fear of anything that goes bump in the night more mainstream and palatable to the folks who think Fox News is too liberal.

Beck also pushes the narrative that Christians are being persecuted by liberals, gay people and of course, us godless atheists. While religious freedom is alive and well in the United States, and religious organizations like the American Family Association have defied the laws prohibiting them from endorsing political candidates, Glenn Beck wants you to believe that only a few paranoid plucky pundits like himself are all that stands between Jesus and a dark age ruled by atheists and Muslims.

Seriously, it’s the oppressors who are the ones being oppressed in the upside-down world of Glenn Beck, as this video from Right Wing Watch shows:

“I can’t change what I believe,” he bellowed. “I believe in God the Almighty. I believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. There’s nothing I can do to change that. Sometimes, believe me, I don’t want to believe that; it’s not fun all the time, it’s not easy all the time, it doesn’t make you popular all the time. I can’t change it. It is who I am to the very fiber of my being. That’s who I am. Do you think that I want to be a pariah?”

“Don’t tell me about your problems, Samuel L. Jackson,” Beck concluded. “Shut the hell up.” (Source)

It’s also incredibly hypocritical for him to talk about persecution as he recently lost a challenge to a lawsuit against him and The Blaze for slandering someone in the wake of the Boston Marathon Bombing. Despite the fact that Abdulrahman Alharbi was cleared by federal authorities of having anything to do with the bombing, Glenn Beck continued to attack him on The Blaze in order to fuel fears of organized terrorism by his go-to boogeyman, Muslims.

Newsflash to Glenn Beck and the people who actually believe that conservatives and right-wing nutjobs like him are being persecuted: Just because there’s a battle going on to keep your beliefs from being shoved down our throats, that doesn’t mean you’re being persecuted. What’s more, nobody is trying to take away your right to worship as you believe or marry the person you love. You aren’t being beaten up in school for wearing a cross or being harassed for praying over your lunch. You aren’t being arrested in the streets for protesting the needless slaughter of white people by untrained, careless police officers – nor are you being stopped and frisked solely because of the color your skin because you look “suspicious.”

“I have to say, as someone who is not a Christian, it’s hard for me to believe Christians are a persecuted people in America. God willing, maybe one of you one day will even rise up and get to be president of this country — or maybe forty-four in a row. But that’s my point, is they’ve taken this idea of no establishment as persecution, because they feel entitled, not to equal status, but to greater status.” – Jon Stewart

    The eighties TV evangilist were bad enough but they were just thieves.
    Beck pimps memes that actively hurt or get people killed.
    Over the years I have seen elderly widows on fixed income send money they couldn’t afford to these slugs.
    I never say anything to them about it because their hearts seem to be in the right place
    .I don’t want to kill something so important to them and probably couldn’t if i tried.

      9 months ago I’ve lost my job and after that I got good fortune to stumble upon a great web-site which really helped me out. I started freelancing over internet for them and soon, I’ve started averaging $10000 /month… What was awesome about it was that because i am not into computers that much all that was required from me was knowing how to type and internet connection and i was ready to start… START HERE

  • Melanie Collins Pennock

    My heart goes out to you, Glenn Beck…… poor miserable SOB.

    • Cuffook Regressed

      Who do you like? Rev Al “tax cheat” Sharpton aka The RACIST?

      • Melanie Collins Pennock

        No, actually do not like Al Sharpton because he is an opportunist. Not because I think he is a racist. Perhaps you are on the incorrect site, or are here to provoke. I will not engage in any more rhetoric with you, by the way. My time is too valuable to respond to ignorance……I would much rather talk with my dogs.

  • Cuffook Regressed

    • tj

      Beck is so crazy, Faux News fired him.

  • Not paying attention to you is *not* persecution.

  • thistlebottom

    He doth protest too much–sounds like someone is losing his religion.

  • Czarjak

    But of course.

    The Germans said they were being discriminated by the Jews. Then they
    put on their jackboots, brown shirts and swastikas and became Nazis.
    And we all know what happened then (except of course for the Holocaust

    Ironically Fundamentalist Christians, Jews and Muslims have more in common with each other than they do with atheists.

    They’re the ones prepared to kill each other to prove which God is is the one true God.
