Glenn Beck Declares His Overwhelming Courage

If you have to declare yourself to be a hero, it’s a pretty clear sign that you haven’t done anything heroic or not. On his show recently, he went off about how his children and grandchildren can be proud that he so bravely fought against the overwhelming forces aligned against him. It’s really quite an amusing bit of hubris.

    Brave Sir Glenny ran away.
    Bravely ran away, away.
    When danger reared it’s ugly head
    He bravely turned his tail and fled.
    Yes Brave Sir Glenny turned about
    And gallantly he chickened out.

    Bravely taking to his feet
    He beat a very brave retreat.
    Oh bravest of the brave, Sir Glenny.

    “I want my children and grandchildren to say… this is what my family did”

    Be careful what you wish for Glen.

    I wonder if his children, and grand children will say to themselves, what a pretentious asshole. Like I just did.

    It is incomprehensible how heroic it is to sit on a set in a TV studio and spout nonsense totally shielded from any consequences while milking the rubes for millions of dollars. This man is a hero only in his mind and a small band of delusional fanatics

    I find it rather pitiful. What a sad, pathetic man Beck is. He needs his mommy to pat him on the head, give him a cookie and tell him what a brave boy he is for not crying.

    C’mon give him credit.

    Beck wasn’t afraid to assume his followers were dumb and incapable of any sort of thought, much less rational thought. And he was correct.

    In a few years, he has made ca. $100 million and his media empire is growing rapidly. He gets paid huge amounts of money for what is basically babbling like a loon every day.

    He is though, probably afraid of stating anything true or realistic. It could cause his income to drop like a stone.

    One wonders who has made Beck so rich for doing so little. It’s a mystery.

    I only know one Glenn Beck fan. He is very devoted. He is also very old and in an advanced stage of some sort of age related cognitive decline.

    His family will wait until the will is read before they decide whether or not their money-maker was a hero.

    WTF is he wearing on his lapel? Is he some sort of sky captain of his own imagination?

    And why is there a Union Jack on the floor of the studio?

    TREASON.

    Some days, I think we should just get it over with and send assassination squads after these guys. Since they already accuse their opponents of it anyway, there’s not much additional harm it could do. And then we could see just how brave they really are.

    Is this a great country or what. In what other country in the world could talentless assholes like Beck and Limbaugh become multimillionaires.

    Jen Senko is doing a Kickstarter (successfully funded!) against this kind of garbage.

    Check out her intro video at the link; you might see Mr. Beck’s … elocution in a different way.

    I’m not sure Glenn Beck is amusing so much as he is depressing. His paranoid fantasies and delusions of grandeur are a sign of something seriously wrong in his head.
