Glenn Beck, Mercury One headed to Oklahoma to help with tornado relief

You can donate to the Mercury One tornado relief fund HERE

Hours after the tornadoes tore through Oklahoma on Monday, Glenn announced via Twitter that he was headed to the state alongside Mercury One and Operation Blessing to deliver relief.

Shortly after his TV show ended, Glenn put out the call on Twitter for anyone with trucks to help with relief:

Glenn said that Governor Perry offered to help, and would clear any red tape so that individuals could lead the relief effort:

At 10:55pm ET, Glenn announced they had found the trucks they needed to get the supplies to Oklahoma:

    You GO on buddy and provide help wherever you can….The second responders group can be effectively the first in restoration. Immediate FEMA classification from this administration….not available. (typical). BTW, FEMA tends to slow things down and wastes a great deal of federal funds so, take advantage and be pro-active…rebuild and recover as soon as possible and don’t rely on the government. Define the problems and SOLVE THEM. e-mail me if you want help…. you have my contact info.

    poor Beck.

    he actually believes that he’s a first responder or a second responder.

    sorry Glenn but you don’t speak for the people of Oklahoma.

    but we get it Glenn.

    you don’t our President coming in and saving the day like he did with Hurricane Sandy.  

    I got relatives in Norman and if they see your face they’re going to ask you to leave.  

    Stay out of the way azz wipe. you’re politics and you are not wanted.

    We have more important things to do, Joe – you go run along now!

  • dwagin

    Sir,
    When your family is in desperate need of clean water, food, and shelter politics do not matter.

    God bless those who are willing to help others in a crisis regardless of political views!

    I have been a responder not related to any government. Sadly some of them, but not all, are so terrified of being sued for doing something beyond the rules of their jobs (Unions and regulations ) that they become paralyzed, That is why when your neighbors (such as Merc1) step in with no questions asked they are so much more effective!
    I have seen people asking, no demanding a coffee break while in a rescue situation SO JOE go for coffee and let the real people do their thing!

  • Mike Laughter

    Joe, you just don’t get it.   The only one making this political is you.  It is our job as American’s to take care of each other it is not the governments job.  And if you do have family in Norman then you know that Oklahoman’s look out for each other and we do not wait for the government to tell us what we need.  I was traveling home yesterday and luckily missed this twister by just a couple minutes as I was heading to Yukon, Ok and thank God I and my family were ok.  Now we are already helping friends that were not as fortunate as I.  This is just how things are done. People are much more efficient at taking care of each other than the government is.  So please just leave the politics out of this.  We will rebuild again like we always do here and we will TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER. 

  • B D

    Joe is right. It’s not about politics or self promotion, and that’s obviously what Beck is up to. Again. In our free land, our government IS us. It is not the enemy as Mr. Beck wants us all to believe.

    That’s whats wrong with this country, ..too many depend on the Federal Gov. for fixes and hand outs, it’s got it’s fangs in every state ready to inject more aid for more addiction as it takes over !

  • TH

    Oh I see………….so your one of those people that believe the statement..”Hi, we’re from the Government, and we are here to help…” hahaha!!!! You just don’t get it do you. And Glenn is coming because he is a compassionate person and actually cares about other human beings. I understand what your saying about politics because quite frankly, I will cringe when Ovomit comes to visit the damage (if he can break away from another golf game, or other more important activities he sees fit to put before Americans safety and well being). 

  • Howard Sprengeler

    Norman didn’t get hit, it was Moore you moron.  I say moron because you obviously are not well educated by your spelling and grammar. I’m sure your relatives, being related to you, must be high up on the food chain in Norman. Would bet their neighbors would rather have Beck there than them.

  • B D

    Government isn’t perfect, but it’s not the demonic evil entity that Beck has all you sheep thinking it is either. Beck wants a civil war and a theocratic government installed, probably of the LDS variety. He’s a dangerous fraud. Insinuating himself into this devastating tragedy is disgusting. He’s a showbiz personality and he doesn’t belong there getting in the way of the real first responders, who are also the real heroes. It’s their job to be there, not Beck’s. 

  • Howard Sprengeler

    You’re right on that. Bet Stanley had a golf game planned and when he found out about this, from the media, he started cursing because he had to look professional by touring the area. Waiting to see how much his outfit hampers rescue efforts. Someone needs to tell him to stay away until next week. Nobody in Oklahoma wants him there anyway.

  • Howard Sprengeler

    So Matt Lauer belongs there? Saw his stupid face on weather.com reporting. Obama doesn’t need to be there, he’s no responder, just a divider, liar. Glad to see Beck and never for one moment thought he wouldn’t come.

  • TH

    Oh I know it’s not perfect. I wish it were, but considering I’m a former govt employee and former first responder, I can relate to Glenns point of views on how corrupt and evil our govt HAS BECOME, AND the tragic situation Glenn and his team are responding to. They aren’t going there to “act” like some hero, they have what people call “compassion” to human beings that have been affected by a tragedy. Whatever a person thinks about govt, God, sexual orientation or anything else that has become politically correct or offensive, goes out the door when you have compassion, and you help people in need. Glenn felt he could help in a way to bring food and supplies to the area which is a tremendous help and I thank the good Lord he has those kind of connections and backing he could make that happen.  Any little bit helps. And get in the way of the “real” responders at ground zero?, not hardly. They will welcome him and thank him for whatever help he and his team could provide.
    How do I know that?  I’ve been a responder at ground zero at the Oklahoma City bombing in 95,  the devastating tornadoes in Moore in 99 and 03 and countless other emergencies in this great state and one thing we do here in times of need…..help one another no matter what color of skin you have, what or who you believe in, what kind of car or home you live in and even if you can speak English fluently……we will help.

  • TH

    Well your relatives in Norman aren’t affected by this storm so they shouldn’t have to be bothered too much to open their mouths and waste their precious breath to ask him to leave.

  • Brett Barnes

    Fool, he’ll send more immediate relief and aid in one day than the red tape of FEMA will send in a month.  He speaks very in tune with the people of Oklahoma.  Your liberal family lives in Norman, the largest liberal area of Oklahoma, but not large enough to overcome the People of Moore who share Cleveland County with Norman.  Cleveland County rejected Obama and the liberal agenda of division both times.

  • Brett Barnes

    You’re an idiot.  Not worth any more effort than that at this time.

  • B D

    Beck is an opportunist and it shows. He’s using this tragedy to bolster his image and a lot of good people have called him out for it. He’s doing this to further his brand. You’d be saying the same thing if some liberal pundit showed up in such grand fashion – sharing every minute of it in the media, Twitter, Facebook, and on their live radio show. If Glenn sincerely wanted to help, he’d do it quietly, shut his pie hole about it and get the hell out of the way.  He’s showboating again.

  • B D

    Glenn Beck is all about division. That’s how he keeps his fan base drooling with hatred, just like you’re doing Brett. “It us good Gawd-fearin’ folk agin the libruls!”  

  • B D

    Beck has the nerve to call himself a “first responder.” He’s a self-proclaimed political pundit/ entertainer.

    I live in Oklahoma. Glenn, we the people of Oklahoma appreciate all the help and contributions you and your staff are bringing to Oklahoma. Liberals, especially the ones who don’t even live in our State, do not speak for us. Thank You so much for all the prayers and support!

    Thanks for illustrating how Glenn Beck has his followers believing that every critic belongs to the “enemy.” He plays you people like a violin. The fact is, I was a conservative back when Glenn was running around stoned with a pony tail flapping behind his alcohol addled head and a joint in his fanny bag. Wake up fool.

    Joe, honey, I’m curious…were you born this hateful or have you had to work at it really, really hard?  Just askin’…

    Oh, and most importantly, Joe…may God bless you.

     SARAHfromOK~ I am DESPERATELY trying to find a way to help. My daughters and I knit small baby blankets called lovies. They are the perfect size for small hands to hold and cuddle. They are so soft and made with lots of love! I thought they would be perfect for the babies and small children who have lost all the things that bring them comfort. Can you tell me where I can send them so they will get to needy babies??

    Poor Joe, what a limited mind and vocabulary…Oh, I’m sorry, you must be one of the Few real voters for Obama-Nation… and the Obama-Notcare Benefits program.

    I would be very careful giving Glenn Beck anything. He is not wrapped tight. When you are too crazy for Fox that should tell you something. Glenn lies, not just little white lies but real whoppers and calls that some strange form of Christianity. None my church would recognize as such nor any of my friends churches. He even wants to use the supercomputer from Person of Interest. Heads up Glenn it is a show.

    I live alittle over an hour away from Moore and people from my town have been taking things to the First Baptist Church of Moore-301 NE 27th St. Moore, OK 73160. You might mail them there with a note. That is very sweet and kind of you and your daughters. God Bless You
