Beck: Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian are Mocking God

Here’s a classic Glenn Beck rant about how God is being “driven out of the public square” in America. And this has something to do with Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian and Anthony Weiner. He’s mad as hell and he’s not gonna take it anymore!

    Um Glen, if you’re looking for vacuous and unpleasant ‘celebrities’ the mirror is just over there.

  2. says

    Well, in all fairness, they’re pretty vacuous and unpleasant. So’s Beck. What’s surprising is that Beck can see vacuousness and unpleasantness in others but not himself.

    “Beck, Charlie Sheen and Kim Kardashian are Mocking God”. FIFY. As for “Flash” Weiner, if he winds up running in the general election against any of the likely republicans, he’s got my vote. His slogan could be “At least I’m not Newt!!”.

  4. says

    Weiner is a dick for having flashed his junk around; that was just stupid. But Beck’s idiocy goes all the way down to the bone level. And why is Beck obsessing about the Kardashians? They’re cardboard people I find it remarkably easy to ignore. (Perhaps Beck identifies with their shallowness.)

    I missed the bit about a national election for the Mayor of New York City, that’s bullshit right?

    Right offhand I don’t know anyone who actually looks to Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian or Anthony Weiner for guidance on any kind of political, religious, or ethical questions, nor do I know anyone who would use them as a role model for their personal lives. So I’m kinda confused about what Beck’s point is here (not that that’s unusual).

    I think it’s vaguely interesting that many of the actors and other artists I do admire are roughly on the same political plane as I am, but it’s not because I check on what their opinions are and then adopt them. Nor, with only a very few exceptions (I finally gave up on Mel Gibson some years ago) do I either seek out or avoid an artist’s work because of their politics.

    Ed, I’ve read your blog for years and I think I’ve never once clicked on a video. Would you consider putting a small disclaimer on your link, something like “video below the fold?” Its not a problem on a PC but on my phone when I’m supposed to be working and am instead browsing FtB it takes too long to load just to hit the back page button.

    @8 Actually Charlie Sheen is my spiritual advisor, I recently joined the Kim Kardashian political party and I always call up Mr Weiner about ethical dilemmas*

    *Use a phone that can’t receive picture texts, that didn’t go as planned

    I seen to recall something in some book about motes and beams, but I might be wrong…

    Re Zeno @ #6

    In fairness, as I understand it, Weiner was wearing his underpants when the flashing incidents occurred so, technically, he wasn’t flashing his rootie tootie.

  11. RickR says

    For a minute there, I confused Anthony Weiner with Matthew Weiner, the creator of “Mad Men”. I thought “what’s Beck got against that show? Granted, Don has been especially unpleasant this season, but…”

    Beck: “God is being driven out of the public square. God is openly mocked, and hedonism and darkness is being embraced.”

    Say, Glenn, is our right-wing pundits learning grammar?

  13. caseloweraz says

    Beck: “And quite honestly, America, those are the easy ones.”

    Then there’s Vito Fossella, former GOP congressman from New York state. In 2008, he was convicted of drunk driving and subsequently confessed to an affair while married. He served out the remainder of his term and did not seek reelection.

    There’s Tim Mahoney, Democrat of Florida. Elected to replace Mark Foley, he admitted to having multiple affairs. His wife filed for divorce in 2008 and Mahoney lost to Republican Tom Rooney.

    And there’s Democrat Gerry Studds (1937-2006), the first openly gay member of the House. A Democrat from Massachusetts, he admitted having an affair with a 17-year-old male page. Studds was censured by the House but served six more terms.

    So yes, what Anthony Weiner did was stupid and shameful. However, it pales beside these and other cases of sexual misconduct on the part of Congressmen. Most of them have resigned when their indiscretions came to light; but I seem to recall a Republican who did not after more serious misconduct.

    Well it’s a damn good thing we have soldiers like Newt Gingrich, John Ensign and David Vitter out there doing the Lord’s work, then.

  15. dan4 says

    @7: You also “missed the bit” where Glenn clearly corrected himself (“…national, uh, mayoral…”). You should have watched the video again before making yourself look a little bit stupid.

    Zeno: And why is Beck obsessing about the Kardashians?
    Maybe Beck’s fans are also a high percentage of the people who follow Kardashian “news”.
