‘A warning to the world’: Glenn shares an excerpt from Fahrenheit 451

Over the last couple of months, Glenn has talked about how he has been re-reading 20th century science fiction books like Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World (1932), George Orwell’s 1984 (1949), and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 (1953) and finding remarkably frightening parallels to today.

“It is amazing to me how much of our science fiction is coming true now, how much of what we were warned about in 1984, in Brave New World. And I’m reading Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 right now,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I mean, it is reading like a newspaper. It is reading like our conversations that we’re having in America now. You won’t believe how you can take Ray Bradbury and pull it off the shelves and you can read it like a newspaper. Everything that our science fiction writers warned about is here.”

To prove his point, Glenn decided to read an excerpt from Fahrenheit 451. “I want you to listen to science fiction,” Glenn said. “Now, science fiction is not a predictor of the future. [The authors] take trends that they see and then they put them in the world that they’re in now. So this is 1950. And so you’ll hear things are swell because it’s 1950. I want you to listen to this. This is the fireman who goes and burns books. And so it’s the fireman talking to this 17‑year‑old girl on the way home. And people don’t talk to each other anymore.”

Watch Glenn read the excerpt in the clip below:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Is that not a conversation that is so close to the conversation many Americans are having today,” Glenn asked. “And that was written by Ray Bradbury in [1953], a warning to the world.”

    Fiction coming to life; we have seen the trends throughout history and now all is approaching the point of no return.

    Obama wants to be an Imperial President, or more appropriately a KING, and will stop at nothing to crush our nation and make our nations name into a curse of disdain for centuries to come.

    Coincidentally, GB reads from the ultimate book banning story, Farenheit 451 on the same day that a Randolph County NC school board may reconsider its book banning decision on Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man ( another story about isolation albeit based on race). Perhaps that school board would benefit from a critical writing exercise after reading Farenheit 451.

    While Farenheit 451 was another branch in the tree planted by Orwell, I think it also most accurately portrayed the fear among intellectuals in the 1950s as the new medium of TV gained a foothold, and predicted the reality that electronic media would someday rule us. (e.g., we have full wall TVs now after all–although I have yet to hear of any 3 wall TVs as  depicted in teh book). As our computers have replaced our TVs, and our smart phones are replacing our computers, we have further become disassociated and disconnected as members of a society. Even though many are in constant contact with their devices and ostensibly their friends, the connection is lacking. As leaders, or should I say politicians,are reduced to relaying their thoughts and opinions on Twitter feeds in order to remain relevant, you know we have gone too far. As connection becomes weaker, all of us are more susceptible to the lack of deep thought that prevails in the electronic media.

    While Glenn politcizes the book for the continuing attack Obama campaign, the book speaks a much larger message. I will choose to reflect on my  lasting imagery from when I read the book back in the 9th grade–the “hobos” who walked the railroad tracks who had memorized the great works of literature, reciting the wisdom from those books.

    I also got to thinking that we thought these people who felt the government was watching them and they were scared that the government was watching their every move.. Everyone laughed at them thinking they were crazy.. Well these people were ahead of their time.. the government is watching us down to watching if we are running stop signs.. now they will know everything about us because he have a socialist President that wants us to give the government even more about our personal lives so they can decide if they think we are worthy of having an operation – maybe that will be decided pretty soon on what religion or party we identify with… you laugh now but who knows what will happen in our future…

    Interesting” such words as these” that you use. I must say, I to am as you put it “sucking off the american people. Yup, you read that right. I am on disability after working 40 plus years of my life then fell I’ll. So what should you do with me? Now that I have payed into this system more than I have ever received back to date? Should you kill me? so that you can fund another war as you put my grandchildren in this war so they can come home with “brain disorders” to say the least?. Grow up and stop putting me down just because I can no longer work?  Pay your dues , raise your family OFF of welfare working your rear end off, as I have done never relying on public assistance crap of any kind, and work as long as I have, before you open that pie hole of disrespect you use of your’s. Karma is a killer and there will come a day where EVERYONE takes ill eventually and be put in a situation as mine. No matter HOW well you take care of your self.  Take note, I have had many family members work their all their lives also never collecting a penny of funding to die and leave it in the hand’s of greedy jerk’s also. So do not patronize some one on a program and “assume” to know , that you know them , what they have done, and more.

    After listening to Glenn read that excerpt from Fahrenheit 451, I am saddened and sickened. I am 75, and I remember when pals chummed around together and didn’t fear being beaten up just for the hell of it, or because your black or white or just because your different. With a few exceptions, young people don.t talk to each other. Just 3 word abbreviated texts, or they gang up on someone outside their cliche and beat the hell out of them. Then they post in on facebook.. Ironic how fiction becomes fact.

    It was not more than 5 or 6 hours ago I commented to my husband about the Navy Yard shooter believing he was being controlled by low frequency electromagnetic waves.  I said to my husband that that sort of thing has been in movies for years…and, much of what we’ve seen in old movies years ago that seemed bizarre, is now not so bizarre and even plausible given current technology and the rise of dark forces.  Seeing Glenn’s video up there and reading snowleopard’s comments just a few hours after my conversation with my husband makes me think this is the subject of the day.  Perhaps we should pay attention.

    Never read F451 but I’m going to now.

    1984 was required reading for us as seniors. It should be now, for every student in the United States but you’d have to get it past all the liberal, brain-dead teachers.

    1984 is here. Every day, we can see it creeping into our lives further and further, deeper and deeper.  We’ve passed the point of no return, there’s no turning it back. In my opinion, George Orwell had a prophetic gift, even if he was not aware of it.

    If you are a Christian, please read The Year Of the Lord’s Favor? by Darren Hibbs. It will get your attention. Very sobering. Please take it to heart.

    When I was in high school in the early 70′s, all these books–Brave New World, 1984, and Animal Farm were required, tested reading. Fahrenheit 451 was required in junior high. And wouldn’t it have surprised all of our teachers to learn that the villains of those novels were being created from among their students–our brothers and sisters–in the peace and love and anti-war psychedelic movement of the day? That those who were at the time painted as heroic thinkers would one day morph into the very oppressors they supposed they hated?

    My read on the Navy Yard shooter is similar to yours. He tried to get help; he was spiraling down into mental illness and wanted help. Who knows? Maybe his microwave was speaking…unstable people (ex military, ex government, etc.) are surely known to authorities. The Rolling Stones journalist’s car went haywire and crashed in deadly explosion for no known reason. Guns “walked” into Mexico by design and are “oops” missing. And at the Navy Yard, the SWAT team was reportedly told to “stand down”. Yeah, it’s not too far a stretch to think that perhaps the shooter was “helped” to spiral out of control.

    I admit since I have graguated from high school i have not read one book since. But, if that is what it says in that book then that part that he has read is the way people act nower days. During my high school years I have heard kids getting shot, stabbed, or getting beat up by multiple kids because they are too afraid of getting hurt and then not taking responsibilities for their actions. The most messed up part was ,and i was a witness of this, that this kid stabbed his cousin because of this girl. He never thought about talking to his cousin about it or just duke it out and get over it the next day. The worst part was that the kid that committed the stabbing only got out of school suspension where he should have gotten an automatic expulsion. A few weeks later there was a fight between two girls. Guess what, the girl that started the fight got sent to juvie instead of recieving a in/out of school suspension. This society is supporting attempted murders and murders rather than demoting them. And, the people do rarely talk and if you do talk to them, if the subject does not interest them, they go on their damn phone and start texting or checking their facebooks or posting something on some social website instead of trying to change the subject to make the conversation interesting again. Problem with society to day is lack of morality, lack of respect, lack of responsibility, allowing ones fear to suppress oneselve, lack of common sense, and lack of social communication. This is so depressing that I do not even want to read things like this anymore. T_T

    I need to re-read ‘Fahrenheit 451,’ but the book that reminds me the most of what is going on in the U.S. today is ‘Animal Farm,’ by George Orwell.  Two quotes that really stand out to me are:

    “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others;” and

    “No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”

    WOW! Reading Glenn’s comments should scare the world….NOT. It is his opinion on the subject and should be taken as such. There are so many fiction books and stories that have been written which seem to have come true, but are nothing more than fiction of the times. One doesn’t have to compare today’s time in America with these fiction books, as these things were happening during the writing of those books. Just look at what happened in Russia or China at that time. Maybe this is coming to America as it gets transformed into a socialist state too. Americans are clueless what socialism will do to a nation because they had it so good for so long. Socialism started in America with the introduction of welfare and the progressives and democrats are the ones who support it 100%. Socialism is run by the elite of society, your own government, and the rest of the people are the slaves to their whims. THAT is what the founding fathers warned against. Unfortunately, the sheeple have been brainwashed to believe the lies of our leaders, both democrats and republicans. The Washington elite have created a monster and it will destroy America.

    Actually, Sam no rant here at all. I merely said that Glenn is politicizing the book to continue his message. I think there is a much larger message posed by the book  than whatever Glenn wants to use it for and that was the point of my comment. that aspect of the book manifests itself in larger ways than government control of individual’s lives. I had the good fortune of re-reading the book with my son last year as part of his 8th grade reading list. I highly recommend it for anyone. There is also a very creepy black and white British film version of it; but the book is much better.

  • bumpkin

    Glenn, we create our own reality. We verbalize something then it comes to pass, because we spoke it into being.  Be careful folks what you say.  Wallace D. Wattles brilliantly exposed the truth when he said “There is a Thinking Stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.  A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.  I can form things in my thought, and by impressing my thoughts upon this formless substance, can cause the thing I think about to be created.  In order to do this, I must pass from the competitive mind to the creative mind.  I must form a clear mental picture of the things I want. And, I must hold this picture in my thoughts with the fixed purpose to get what I want, and the unwavering faith that I will get what I want- closing my mind to all that may tend to shake my purpose, dim my vision, or quench my faith.  I am ready to receive what I want when it comes, and I am acting now upon the people and things in my present environment.”  

    I say, what better way to ‘image a thing’ than to either make a book or a movie of it?!  The concept is truth.  I have tried it many times, and I always get what I image.  Indeed, you dont go out and get a new ___ (whatever) without at first thinking you will, or that you want one, or even form a new relationship without considering it first.  All things that move into your life that can be imaged by you, generally start as a thought or a vision. (even if the vision is to see it portrayed on TV.

    “Brave New World” would be viewed today as almost a Utopia, as opposed to the negative Utopia it was intended to portray. Others will see it as “homophobic”, as the term is misapplied today. Once a society’s belief systems have been so thoroughly compromised, as they are now, then the mechanism by which we make choices of right and wrong no longer functions. Horrific people make horrific arguments, horrifically immoral arguments, every day merely to justify the horrific act they wish to commit…usually in the name of “choice”. And they do so without even the slightest hiccup of conscience.

The BIble tells about it anyway so we know it is coming to pass. It is too late and alot of people really need to realize it. Another president can not fix it now. It is close to the end of mans government on this earth. The people on this earth have pushed GOd away and God is going to give them their way for a while and they will be sorry and there will be nothing they can do to get out of the judgememts that are coning to t. We have been blessed in this country by God and they have taken Him out of almost everything they could take Him out of. There is a Scripture that talk about Him bringing terror on a land that does not live according to His statutes. He has taken His hand off of our nation and we have no more Godly protection like we used to. They didnt want Him to tell them what to do and because they didnt listen, have screwed up everything. There is no right or wrong anymore, just do whatever you choose. GOd will not tolerate it because HE never changes. He is the same as He always was so the only things that have changed are the people who want to live their own desires. Look up!!! Our redemption draws near, ready or not.

    Holy crap. Wow. Chalk that up to wasted minutes I’ll really want back when I’m on my death bed. (And if you’re serious about wanting to see price increases? It’s called Google, sweetheart. Lots of people have already posted proof. Google. G-o-o-g-l-e period  c-o-m. Got that? If you can’t find the proof yourself, your research skills are so bad a jar full of dead fireflies could do better.)
    All right, I am saying this in all sincerity. You need to stop. You are utterly embarrassing yourself with these videos. I mean it. Not in a cute way, or ironic or self-deprecating way. In a “Shouting to the World I am a Total Jacka** and Moron” way. Are you entirely friendless? Do you have no family at all? I’m flabbergasted to think no one has pulled you aside and gently told you this. How is it you have literally no one anywhere in your life who cares about you enough to tell you the truth? This is the equivalent of letting someone walk around all day without telling him his fly is down because it’s “funny.” 

    Sweetheart? I don’t know who you have helping you with this little project or who’s cheering you on, but they are absolutely NOT your friends. I can promise you, behind your back they are laughing at you. You are that sad, pathetic kid in high school that the mean kids pretend to befriend, just so they can humiliate you over and over because you’re too blind to see it and too desperate for their approval.

    I am 100% serious about this. I know I can be snarky and sarcastic. I certainly don’t suffer fools gladly most of the time. But this is beyond all that. I am so sorry you’ve reached the age you are without meeting even just one person who loves and cares about you enough simply to tell you everyone is pointing and laughing at you and it’s not because you’re actually funny. They are laughing AT you, not WITH you.

    Oh, and one more home truth? Yes. You look EXACTLY like someone who lives in his mother’s basement. Hmmm. So maybe you’re just a fake? Maybe you’re playing the role of ignorant sad sack, deliberately acting as lame and pathetic as possible to drive traffic to your videos? It’s all just a scripted “Loser of Loserville” program? I don’t know what you’d really be getting out of it if that was the case, but dang do I hope it’s true, because otherwise you are the poster child for a mind being a terrible thing to waste.

    Will a national dialog take us where it must go, away from firearms and to the actual root of the problem? It’s not just that there are a lot of free-range nut-jobs out there, it’s also that many receive intermittent doses of powerful psychotropic drugs. Starting and stopping psychotropic drugs endangers both the patient and the people around him.

    Aaron Alexis had reported to the VA that he was experiencing insomnia and it was said that “[h]e was given a sleep medication.” The focus should have been not just on his mental issues but also on that unspecified “sleep medication.” It is likely that he was given a “sleep aid,” such as Ativan (lorazepam), Ambien (zolpidem), Dalmane (flurazepam), Halcion (triazolam), or Restoril (temazepam) for his insomnia. 

    What are the side effects of these “sleep aids”? There are a plethora of side effects, so I have taken the liberty to edit the list to the most relevant issues:

    @jaamoose:disqus Because after awhile? All their *trying* to speak sense gets tiresome. It’s like watching a blindfolded person try to match up different colored socks. It might be amusing for about 5 minutes, but after that, it wears thin. Logical fallacies, inaccurate data, debunked studies, insupportable conclusions, bad math, poor science, lies… there’s only so much of that a sane person wants to deal with. If liberal sheeple could actually come up with *any* argument of genuine merit, and not the same old garbage that anyone with 10 active brain cells can easily shred, that would be something. Instead, all we get is the total nonsense of the brain-dead and clueless. 

    At least I give you credit for acknowledging that it’s only a “try” and not a “do.” So what you’re saying is that we should be more kind and patient with people who are clearly challenged by even basic truths and facts, because bless their little hearts, but they are *trying*? Take pity on them, because their ignorance is genetic and so not their fault? All right. I suppose I can see that. Personally, I don’t understand why liberals think they can speak about ObamaCare, for example, and tell us what it is and how it will work without having actually read the entire law first, but maybe all this time I’ve been giving them too much credit? I figured it was pure laziness on their part not to do so. I guess what you’re telling us is that they lack the intelligence to comprehend it and so *can’t* do so, not won’t?

    So now what? Is this like our liberal run public schools, where what you want is for us to give gold stars (or in this case “likes”) to these poor souls, even when they are completely off base and totally wrong, so we can protect their delicate self-esteem? Getting things right is immaterial as long as we help them feel good about themselves?

    My wife has family coverage from her job (I am unemployed and taking a turn at staying home with the kids). Her plan goes UP $2,500 in 2014. Obama said it would go DOWN $2,500. Obama lied. The kids’ piano and music lessons will end next year because of this. It isn’t just that our insurance has gone up; it also affects others, like music teachers. Democrats complained about trickle down economics, but what I see from them is trickle down poverty … no, not trickle down, but deluge.

    Lisa, don’t get your undies in a bunch. When people complain about those “sucking off the taxpayers,” they’re talking about people who are abusing the system. They are not talking about people who are legitimate clients of benefits earned — or not earned for that matter, so long as they are not able-bodied or unwilling to work for their own keep.

    Pissed me off? Are you kidding? Why would someone acting like the world’s biggest loser piss me off? I just feel sorry for you. I pity you. If someone were to walk up to me right now and offer me a million dollars to take your place in life, I don’t think I would. Not even for a million dollars! THAT’s how much of a desperate loser you are, sweetheart. Your world, your life? It isn’t even worth a million bucks to step into your shoes! You want attention so bad, you’re willing to *humiliate* yourself just to get it. You are here literally begging for someone to notice you because you have no one and nothing in your life.

    I can’t get pissed off at you for that. It would be just… mean, like getting mad at some sad, little child who lacks any skills or talents and never gets picked for the team. 
    Oh, and I’m not sure there’s enough space on the entire internet to list out how much you got wrong just in what I watched. But you already know that, don’t you. C’mon. Just admit it. You’re deliberately making crap up and acting like an idiot to get attention and post your links. You only want me to point out some of it so your nonsense bleeds over onto this site, too.Even the BATTA-BING thing screams, “Over-the-top, fictional, stereotyped character in lame-o comedy show written by talentless hacks.” You HAVE to be a fraud.

    I have been reading SF for as long as I can remember, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 and toher that wrote what I call Social science fiction were ridiculed and considered “Kooks” by the critics of the day.
    Even Asimov, Heinlein and many others that made long term future stories have been more on the mark than you are let to believe go read them before there is a true 451 movement by governments every where.
    Arthur C Clark predicted communication satellites and other teck advances LONG before any body even launched a rocket!

    That’s amazing — I have been telling people for the past three years that the most important books we read in high school were Animal Farm, 1984, and Brave New World. I’m pleased to see that Glenn feels the same way. After all, doesn’t it seem that our overlords in DC are trying to get us accustomed to the idea that “all animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others”, as Orwell wrote??!?!

    Gosh, I wonder if those three books are among those that will be banned from the Common Core when it is fully implemented.

    About Common Core: Is it possible that the politicians are trying to confuse people by making its name just similar enough to the “Core Curriculum” that has been in place at Columbia University for over 100 years? The Columbia version is actually a good thing, in that everyone has to read the classic books, take art and philosophy classes, and even do something really radical — READ THE FEDERALIST PAPERS AND THE CONSTITUTION!! A far cry from what seems to be transpiring with the Common Core, indeed.

     the chemical compounds found in the drugs spoken of are not natural and as such, cause problems to many people, and yes, the mass murders seem to be connected to people taking those kinds of drugs and filling themselves with processed foods that are also full of drugs and other chemicals that have no place there. Our FDA approves all kinds of things that don’t really help the problems, only mask some of the symptoms and cause more problems. There are people walking the streets that should really be put away for awhile and helped, but not by drugging them, that doesn’t really help over time, it makes things worse.

    Last night I posted that I’m no longer a Conservative Republican. I said I googled Libertarian and read the Libertarian Party platform and I agree that this is what America needs to fulfill our hopes and dreams and hopefully set a political example for the rest of the world to follow. The Libertarians generally don’t believe Government should be Involved in the abortion issue at all it’s none of there business. I agree!I’m totally against abortion, I believe life begins at conception and common sense tells you it’s a scientific fact the cells are alive and dividing at conception. Government should be wise enough to step out of the way of such a crucial personal and private decision that should only be made by the Women her Doctor and if needed her immediate Family. Only God knows the answer what is acceptable in a persons life and certainly it’s not the Government. After all the years of Mothers taking the lives of 56,000,000 unborn children in America because Government has condone this genocide, this must stop now. No Man, Woman or Government has the authority to authorize the murder of the most innocent in our society. For all of those contemplating abortions they should be required by their Doctors to be counseled by both sides of this controversy, These should be private organizations that are not funded by the tax payers dollars at all. These two organizations can counsel each person so they can make a factual educated decision what is best for them and their unborn Child. These organizations can be in the form of a private charities that will only exist from donations that are paid directly to them which can be totally tax deductible just the same as any other charity. After the person has been thoroughly counseled and offered all different alternatives that each organization has available to help them, only at that point can they make a totally informed and educated decision. This decision will become completely theirs and their families only, with no interference from Government what so ever.

    The technical aspects of science fiction have an uncanny way of coming to reality – such as Jules Verne’s “submarine”, or computer voice recognition/speech translators.  

    The social aspects of science fiction however tend to completely miss the mark – except for the growth of totalitarian governments.  

    Progressives and leftism by the way, leads to totalitarian government. We need some good science fiction books and movies that show the horrific result of leftism.

    By the way – in the Star Trek world history, one day “everyone” on earth somehow decided to all hold hands and get along.  Ironically with all of this good will flowing everywhere, these “Progressives” spend many of their episodes fighting with and killing alien species along with errant humans.  Hmmmmm…..”We come in peace……shoot to kill.”

    There is a very big problem with what you saying, it is antithetical to to the principles this country was founded on.

    You and the Libertarian Party say that abortion should not be the governments business, yet the Declaration of Independence says it should:

    “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal,
    that they are endowed, by their CREATOR, with certain unalienable
    Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of
    Happiness.–That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted
    among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed…”

    Do you and the Libertarian Party reject natural law?

    Re: “I’m totally against abortion, I believe life begins at conception”

    If you truly believe that life begins at conception, then how do you rationalize letting someone lawfully choose to kill an unborn baby or not?

Everyone is so darn serious about everything these days that it’s nice to be able to turn all the noise off and talk about mundane, pop culture things. Stuff that doesn’t sound like it should matter to people but are shared experiences so it really does. But if doing that will make people break things and shoot people just to be able to feel something then maybe serious topics are okay to do. But not as often as a lot of people do them.

     Sorry to break to you but humans are humans there are always going to be rotten humans. Lets say for instance you get your dream of a complete Atheistic, liberal society where there is no religion whatsoever, not going to change anything. Evil people will just use another excuse to kill, rape and rob, they just don’t need religion. In your society their excuse would be “My genes told me to set my kids on fire” or “Its in my nature I can’t help that I killed 50 people”. Atheistic communism has murdered more people than all religious wars combined. Its human, as long as there is humans we’re going to be stuck with those conditions there is no utopia, if you think there is your a delusional idiot. All utopias have been tried and found wanting. Even communes, nope its just not evil “Muslims” and “Tea baggers” its people period. Get it through your thick head.

How many societies like the above have been tried and failed? Lots of them, on a grand scale the former Soviet Union tried it. Millions ended up dead in both the former USSR and China. This isn’t about “fit in to your tea party paranoia” its about reality and reading your comments you really have no sense of that. The technology can be achieved and has but that utopian Star Trek society has been tried and it fails every time. I know you wish humans had a hive mind but we don’t, that is what makes us human.

    As long as you are just talking and not acting, it’s irrelevant.  Obama knows Glenn is out there, he knows Rush is out there.  But they are just tools for him to use…conservative voices on the radio actually diffuse the righteous anger of citizens who should be sharpening pitchforks and lighting torches, rather than endlessly complaining about being run over by the progressive federal machine and wondering why Republicans (who are now clearly part of that machine) don’t do anything.  The only good communist is a dead communist, the only good despot is a hanged despot.  You can either join them, kill them, or die.  There is no option for peaceful coexistence, they can’t allow you to be free.  The longer you think you can ‘win’ without bloodshed is just giving them more time to carry on their careers of evil, and they’re banking on the fact that you won’t stand up and fight.  That’s just the way it is, so either stop complaining, accept the way it’s going and live in this fundamentally transformed America, or figure out how you’re going to exterminate the transformers.  In the public forum, the fix is in.  You can admire Ted Cruz all you want, he’s going to have absolutely no impact on Obamacare or the direction of any federal policy whatsoever.  It’s up to you.

Also offer all possible alternatives and reasons to keep her Child alive. These alternatives can be adoption, financial help to get her through her pregnancy, educational help, ect. I don’t believe pro abortion reasoning will be able to convince a Mother to kill her Child. The Government involvement in this issue has resulted in slaughter 56,000,000 unborn children.

    Thanks Glenn, I will have to go out and buy the book now so I and my kids can read it.

    i have a brother in law that is a MARINE and he hears voices and hears things that were never said and thinks he is being watched. And no one will do anything because he is a MARINE. We fear that is will someday be him.

    An astute observation, Mr. Beck. But how about this: our elected leeches are using yesterday’s sci-phi novels to plan today’s rip-offs? Observe them like the noxious forms of life they are. I’m detecting a despicable symbiotic game where 535 thieves con the sheeple into believing they care while, all along, every step they take is designed to protect each other’s back-door incomes. Case in Point: Oblabbercare. If Oblabber really cared, he’d demand to know why an aspirin costs a nickel at the WalMart store but costs $50 in a hospital; why a five minute x-ray costs $5 in Uganda but $500 in Amerika; or why ambulance chasers earn more than the doctors they sue?
    But that would get into a few pockets, wouldn’t it…?John Burleson, who fears no evil

    Re: “I don’t speak for the Libertarian Party”

    You are promoting the merits of the Libertarian platform and attempting to persuade others to join.

    Now when asked about specifics, you say you don’t speak for them?

    I see…

    Re: “The Government involvement in this issue has resulted in slaughter 56,000,000 unborn children.”

    The reason being is because the GOVERNMENT failed in it’s duty in securing our natural rights and legalized lawlessness.

    Re: “”As far a natural law it’s a man made theory without fact or reason.”"

    Ahhhh, there it is. You do reject what this country was founded on.

    Not sure where that quote came from but the Declaration of Independence says otherwise.

    You a Conservative Republican? I don’t think so.

     Gadamer,

    Anyone that believes a person has the right to murder an innocent unborn child is someone who should not be listened too. So with that said, I will not bother asking you to explain the founding principles you seem to think you understand.

    In regards to Mr. Thomas Jefferson:

    You either don’t know anything of Jefferson’s work in regards to slavery and the laws of Virginia at the time, or you are purposefully mischaracterizing Thomas Jefferson, i.e. you are either spreading misinformation or disinformation.

    Either way, not good.

    We watch Glenn Beck & the Blaze through a Roku box.  There is a  message that continually appears that says “loading, please wait”  I think we get the entire show, but it adds about 1/2 hour to viewing time and it’s annoying.  Has anyone else experienced this??

    More irrelevant stupidity straight from the source, eh Victor? Your illogical thought processes are on display here for everyone to see, so thanks for revealing that you can’t make the intellectual leap from fetus to person. What do you think a fetus is for? Why do fetuses exist Victor? You should be able to put two and two together, but just in case your occupooper mind isn’t up to the task, a fetus becomes a human being during the process of being born. Guess what that means, Victor – it means that at one time YOU WERE A FETUS! 

    Your anecdotal slavery reference is a red herring. Many of the founders had slaves, as it was the manner of the day, but Jefferson and Washington both were historically benevolent to their slaves, and many if not all were freed by them before their deaths. That was the eighteenth century world, and you liberals always seem to insist on bringing it into 21st century arguments. You do realize that it makes you look like a luddite don’t you? 

    Try to stay within the scope of the subject being discussed – in this case you failed in a most graphic fashion.

    Mike, this blog does not automatically indicate who you’re addressing a comment to, which usually doesn’t matter too much. However, when you are aiming criticism, it needs to be directed to the individual to whom it is intended. Please identify the recipient of your attacks, so we don’t have to wonder who is getting a piece of your mind.

    Beck NEVER takes anything out of context. 

    Except, of course, when it serves the interest of the ruling class he supports. (Often).

     Idiot Victor, it is the propagandist Beck hater that is taking Beck out of context, as well Jon Stewart. You have been had by it, but you will continue to believe it because of your bias problem instead of questioning it. Typical Vicky with his biased assimilation.

  • Guest

     He talks out of his hat to promote his slanted vision, like Obama, and he never checks his claims so is always getting refuted with facts, which embarrasses him. This usually leads to a nasty retort by him, followed by him getting a beat down. Normal, sane people would learn from the experience, but he repeats it often. Delusional? Yes.

    I met Ray Bradbury when I was 17 back in 1984.  He swore at me when I asked for his autograph twice but I like to think he paid me a great complement.  In his mystery he was writing Death is a Lonely Business I like to think there was a little bit of me in the main character.  I was the scared skinny kid who had the gumption to ask for his autograph twice (I can’t remember why.  I was strange back then).  Anyway since I’ve met him I always wanted to be a novelist.  I put it off most of my life  but have recently tried to write a book (now at 39000 words and still going).  He was one of the most well read and remarkable person I’ve ever met.  He was pleasant but grouchy (like House).  A man who is truly missed.

    If Glenn would wake up read this simple no cost solution to most health problems and tell the world millions of lives would be saved and trillions of dollars at no cost.  Google any disease followed by the words “cured with sea salt & water.” Prove it to yourself. 
    My wife & I spent over one million dollars to get this message out to save his life and everyone else, the least he could do is to check it out.

    RAY BRADBURY SOUNDS PROPHETIC MORE THEN EVER…. I WISH PEOPLE WOULD GRASP HOW SO MANY OF THESE WRITERS (WHO UNLIKE TODAYS WRITERS WERE THINKERS)  LIKE BRADBURY, HUXLEY, ORWELL, RAND, & HEINLEIN (MORE SO WITH TECHNOLOGY WE ARE STARTING TO SEE) COULD BE CALLED PROPHETIC.

    BUT IT’S NOT THAT IT’S THE PURITY OF THEIR REASON AND LOGIC, ALL THOSE AUTHORS ARE IN THIS REGARD PROOF THAT MAN CAN OBJECTIVELY DETERMINE ULTIMATE TRUTH.

THERE ABILITY TO SEE A CHOICE PLAYED OUT OVER TIME AND KNOW IT IMPLICATIONS WAS DERIVED FROM THEIR WANT TO SEEK THAT TRUTH TO EMPOWER MAN AND WARN OF THE DANGERS THAT FOLLOWING ANYTHING BUT THAT TRUTH LEADS TO. THAT IS FAR FROM A COLD HEART, BUT IN FACT IT DEMONSTRATES A PROFOUND CARE FOR ALL OF MANKIND, AND THEIR LOVE OF FREEDOM AND NEED TO SHARE WITH MANKIND THE KNOWLEDGE THAT WITHOUT IT WE ARE SLAVES BROUGHT THEM RIDICULE AS MUCH AS THEIR IDEAS GARNERED PRAISE. LESSER HUMANS WOULD TAKE THE SLINGS AND ARROWS AND STOP ASKING THEMSELVES “WHY AM I SAVING THIS SPECIES THEY DON’T KNOW TRUTH AND ARE DOOMED.”

    THESE AUTHORS SPOKE THE TRUTH AND TOLD THEIR TALES ANYWAY. IT IS BECAUSE IN ALL THE WRITINGS YOU CAN EASILY SEE THE BEAUTY OF OUR EXISTENCE WHEN WE CARE AND FIGHT FOR SOMETHING OR A THING CHANGES US. ALSO EVIDENCED IN THEIR WORKS IS THE HEROIC NATURE OF MAN WHEN HE SEEKS FREEDOM AND STRUGGLES FOR IT AND WILL NOT COMPROMISE FOR ANYTHING LESS THEN IT. ALL OF THEIR WORKS CENTER AROUND A HERO OF SORTS, A CHARACTER THAT BREAKS AWAY FROM STATUS QUO AND ON HIS OWN OR WITH ON OCCASION WITH A LITTLE HELP MAKES BOLD STANDS AND CHALLENGES THE POWERS AT BE. THEY INTEND FOR US TO REALIZE THE POWER OF SELF, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY TO SHOW US IF ONE MAN CAN CAUSE THE SYSTEM THAT MUCH TROUBLE IMAGINE WHAT ALL OF US OR EVEN A QUARTER OF US COULD DO….

    WE COULD CHANGE THE WORLD.

    WE DON’T SEE MUCH GREATNESS ANYMORE WE GET GLIMPSES OF IT BUT THEY ARE SO QUICK THAT IT IS HARDLY NOTICED. IT IS BECAUSE WE THINK LESS FOR OURSELVES, WE FOLLOW PARTY LINES, LISTEN TO THE TALKING HEADS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE. BUT A GREAT MAN CAN’T COME FROM THE LEFT OR THE RIGHT, THE TWO SIDES HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON AND IT IS IN ARGUABLE. THEY HAVE BOTH COMPROMISED THEIR IDEALS, CHOSEN TO APPLY A PRINCIPLE HERE BUT NOT THERE. THIS IS DELUSIONAL, HOW CAN A MAN SAY A IDEAL OR PRINCIPLE OR HIS TRUTH IS ULTIMATE IF HE PICKS AND CHOOSES WHERE IT IS APPLIED. TRUTH CANNOT BE ALTERED TO FIT INSIDE A BOX OF YOUR LIKING. YOU CANNOT BEND TRUTH TO CREATE YOUR REALITY. TRUTH BENDS YOUR MIND AND MAKES YOU COGNITIVE OF REALITY.

    RAND, BRADBURY, ORWELL, HEINLEIN, HUXLEY WERE NOT PROPHETS, NOR DID THEY HAVE VISIONS.

    Once upon a time . . . there was this place called America !    It was a place filled with free people !    Free to pursue fresh ideas and possibly make a buck !    But that idea was infiltrated by local, state and federal governments wanting their piece of the action . . . so they added fees and taxes.   Their fees and taxes evolved into a need to get permission to create and pursue your fresh ideas, with the idea of making a buck !    So, permits and licenses were created to control and possibly squelch that creativity !    It has come to pass that people who control the controls (elected officials) has evolved from the employees of the electorate and into untouchable, unquestioned and unaccountable receivers of lobby-money and “wink-of-the-eye” sweetheart deals, that involve nothing of interest or benefit to the electorate at large.   They took legislative power and assigned it to themselves, and voted themselves exemptions from the very legislation they impose on the said electorate.   The people were up in arms, but the elected would not . . . could not hear them !     They spoke sweet words to the ones who wanted to hear them and the gullible idiots were happy that words were spoken . . . yet, did not demand that action be performed.
    Once upon a time . . . there was this place called America . . . has anyone seen where it went ?
