Glenn addresses fan feedback and concerns in honest, revealing monologue

On Thursday’s radio program, Glenn delivered an impassioned monologue about the changes he has experienced both personally and professionally over the last several months. All the while, his viewers and listeners have noticed and responded to these changes through social media and emailing the show. On Thursday’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn responded directly to some of the feedback he has received from you – the people are quite literally building TheBlaze.

When Glenn opens his 5pm program with the line, “Welcome to TheBlaze. This is the network you are building,” he means every word of it. Everything TheBlaze has accomplished in just a few short years is a result of the time and money you have invested. In return, Glenn explained that he and his team have sought to deliver the highest quality product. At TheBlaze, the truth has no agenda. And last Christmas, Glenn unveiled a new mission statement to his staff: We tell the stories of love and courage where the good guys win.

TheBlaze has been able to bring you stories and reports not found anyplace else because of your partnership, and Glenn admitted he has at times failed to keep the audience abreast of where the company is headed. The world is changing rapidly, and TheBlaze is working fast and furiously to keep up. On Thursday’s program, Glenn explained why TheBlaze needs your help now more than ever, and he apologized for the growing pains many viewers have noticed as of late. He responded directly to a handful of letters and emails he has received, and offered a glimpse into where he is headed.

  • BozotheTrump

    Is it my imagination or is he looking more and more like Colonel Sanders?

  • Jolene Miller

    Glenn, near the end where you said “lives, fortune, and sacred honor” I looked into your eyes and saw that you really are sacrificing your fortune and your life. Thank you for your willingness to do so, but you have A LOT on your plate (haha) and you need to take care your health seriously. There is a ton of talent at The Blaze who can cover for you, don’t let the nay sayers guilt you into not taking proper care your health.
    Sheilds High.

    Glenn should lighten up, kick back and relax more, take it easy, go interview some dead voters in Chicago or something.

    Near the end ………I saw the long con. Mr.capitalism free market” Beck, is begging the market to forgive his garbage product.

    We all know he is being sued for punitive damages for his unhinged slanderous statements on the would be bomber….and he cannot talk about that issue. Why would construction renovations effect the quality of a well researched and planned TV broadcast?

  • Viking King Eleven

    Mr. Beck, I have prayed for you, your employees and others almost everyday for the last 3+ years. You changed my life. You’ve made an impact. What can we do? I can do more. I am not getting the answers yet.

  • Anonymous

    That lady, Kathy, was right, your sign-off was important. Actually, the “final thought”segment and sign-off was the best part of the show. Not for the same reason she said but those last moments of the broadcast was your time with us after everything else was finished with. I personally loved saying goodnight back to you and having the camera follow you while you were leaving. Sometimes you would wave. Don’t know about anyone else but the only show I watched on Blaze TV was the afternoon show and some of the radio program. Now, even though I’ve upgraded my computer to maybe get Blaze TV back I’m not interested in seeing it anymore. We don’t see eye to eye on lots of things anymore and the commercial breaks drove me nuts. But I miss you a lot. I’m looking forward to asking my cable company to carry Blaze TV when it gets away from doing so much news and stats having entertainment shows. Hopefully, you will be still on and maybe doing light entertainment things for those of us who don’t care about politics and news. Even if you are only on for fifteen minutes because of being burned out. Could be that doing light stuff will help your health get back on track, too. The renovations for the studios look really nice. You know what? Even the lighter color background is less stress-making. I love you lots, Glenn. Good night from Chicago.

  • Duddioman

    I think I understand what you’re trying to say, Glenn, but under these circumstances, it was a really poor decision to tell people to unsubscribe if they disagreed with you over the BLM issue with Bundy. You really forced a lot of us to make a choice we hadn’t planned on. If you had been genuine and gracious about it, we could have agreed to disagree, but you have had such a chip on your shoulder about it, that it is insulting.

  • Anonymous

    I have something to announce… I just can’t do it now…. Mark, Sean, and Glenn….dropped? Boston bombing…. I have the smoking gun to bring this down… nothing… and so many more… maybe Glenn, you can tell us all how to politely accept our tickets to the cattle cars? Maybe write a book on it?

  • RD

    I was told to come back and listen as Glenn had responded to those of us who were labeled, disrespected, and asked to leave the network.

    I didn’t see that here.

    There was no apology to the Bundys for doing exactly what he denounces the “mainstream media” for doing. Showing edited news clips to disparage a person. No remorse after the truth about the video was exposed.

    No Apology to the ones of us who felt that this was the one place to go for the truth in broadcasting, and were asked to leave and unfriend him because we had different beliefs.

    No apology for having to listen as the show turned into a group of guys laughing hysterically at each others asinine remarks, while we waited for the program to get back on track.

    Glen seems to be able to forgive the evil or distasteful elements of Ghandi and King but still idolizes both for what good they did. We were all labeled immediately and cast by the wayside.

    Maybe he responded to some in the audience, and maybe I am alone in the way this leaves me, but I still don’t see any remorse for what was done to us.

    I received a survey in my email after dropping Glenn Beck and The Blaze and I answered truthfully and from the heart, and yet again in this segment I hear Glenn telling me he would never ask us to conform or shut up and sit down…..but that was exactly what I felt when there was a time to stand.

    RD OUT

  • Reconmarine7

    Glenn is on his radio show right now trashing the Tea Party. They must have dropped him as a sponsor. He is also losing ALOT of subscribers. Good riddance Glenn. You are a fraud.

  • http://www.thinklikeablackbelt.com/ ColoradoLH

    Glenn, I’ve seen you push your personal growth and your understanding of
    what’s tearing this country down since you were on CNN. I’ve seen you
    develop from entertainer to reporter to researcher to teacher to mover
    and shaker. The one, solid thread throughout has been your authenticity
    and passion to learn how to make a positive pivot point for the country.
    Many of us understand transitions (in health or business) create huge
    stretch goals and none of us will agree on everything. I value your
    absolute refusal to be stagnant or apathetic and to move toward what’s
    best, lasting, and generates the greatest freedom.

  • R-WOOD

    I Wonder ……. what if we had taken a stand at Calvary ? I Wonder……. what part of the crowd was I ? I Wonder ……..

  • Chuck P

    Don’t know that I agree with you here. Glenn isn’t running the network to promote your views individually, or viewers collectively. He is doing this to express his views. You can decide whether or not you agree with him, but he and the rest of the employees aren’t there to tell your story, if you understand what I’m saying.

  • R-WOOD

    “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.” IN MY WORDS ” MAN UP “

  • R-WOOD

    Ecclesiastes 3

    1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

    2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

    3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

    4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

    5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

    6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

    7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

    8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

    I’m with you Glenn! Screw every hater on this page.

  • Anonymous

    I literally stopped listening to and watching Glenn Beck and The Blaze over this issue. He misrepresented what occurred in Bunkerville and I took it personally when he told Bundy supporters to go away. I went away. And I’m happier for it. The more intelligent podcasts and audio books I have replaced Glenn with have been wonderful, less entertaining, but more engaging and intellectually stimulating.

  • Joe T

    I hear you guys, but if you expect our party to go ANYWHERE supporting Bundy you guys are insane.

  • Anonymous

    My party? What party is that? I don’t support Bundy specifically, I support the principle that was being attacked there. Just because he isn’t the perfect spokesman and isn’t all that media savvy does not mean that we shouldn’t stand against the government pushing out all but one rancher from Clark County and for using jackbooted and violent tactics to finish the job. I have no party. I only have principles.

  • Tracey Hayes

    I think we forget to pray for you, I know I have. I am sorry, please forgive me. I commit to pray for you and your family. I know that you are on the front lines and our enemy is at you. Will be praying for you in Jesus mighty name.

  • Jeff Pissedoffpatriot Dudley

    i believe in peace full protest. but what do we do when that doesn’t work any longer? do we keep on saying the same thing over and over again? are “we” in it for the ratings or who we can make fun of? this country has been headed downhill for awhile now, are we just going to sit back and let the government and the banks dictate how we as free americans live our lives.? guess that means we aren’t actually free. have we forgotten how jesus threw out the bankers in the town square? and if you don’t believe that way, let me ask you this, are you a sheep, cow, or a type of livestock? didn’t think so. i’m getting to the point to where i believe the time for talk is over. how about we fight for the little freedoms we have left instead of being led to the stock yards and disposed of like animals. you can either talk it to death or get in there and get it done.

  • Shawn Cameron

    I don’t think it was so much the people who merely disagreed with him as it was the loons calling out for blood over the Bundy issue. I think there were a lot of his subscribers who were disappointed that the standoff didn’t become a blood bath and I think it is those people his comments were directed to more than anyone else. Beck wanted to distance himself from those calling out for violence, such as the man who stood with Bundy and had the idea to put the women at the front so the cameras would see them get shot first.

  • asybot

    Hit the nail on the head thanks RD, I do not follow Glen and his programs nearly as much as I used to. To me there seems to be a slow creeping bias in to the dialogue. Sad, I thought he was on the right track.

    Long line of law enforcement in my family start bashing them you lost me. Not to mention the mind numbing popups and money you want for everything you do. I’m all for capitalism but good lord. Love ya buddy but I’m done.

  • Aaron Earls

    But if you’ve stopped listening to the Blaze, how are you here right now? I disagreed with Beck on that issue and thought that although Bundy wasn’t a great guy the issue of the BLM was still important. But I just took that Glen line with a huge grain of salt.

  • Shawn Cameron

    Same here. I have law enforcement in my family and my wife works for DFCS and he has done his share of bashing them as well.

  • Take 2

    What the heck people… There is something wrong with the entire Bundy Tribe. They talk in old broke. Dah English – they are breaking the law – + right or wrong lost in Court. Its not News worthy at all. Sure, the Government was evil sending snipers with kill orders.

    No Glenn – America is lost 100% to the Stupid Global Order Communist Marxist do dah knuckle heads now in power. Yes, he is one of a few… However, we the party of George Washington should honor others opinion and know sometimes bad means good. Leave means stay etc etc when evoking mature ie stimulating options.

  • Duddioman

    No, I’m sorry, I followed this story very carefully, as I live in Las Vegas and I have been a subscriber of Glenn’s since he started the Insider Extreme.

    I was not disappointed that it did not descend into violence, I was pleased that it was peacefully resolved. I never called for blood, only for the BLM to back off and for Bundy to get a fair hearing on the facts. Glenn had such huge chip on his shoulder against Bundy, that he couldn’t even handle the facts of the situation.

    I would have completely understood if Glenn had urged his listeners to be careful, keep a cool head, and stated that he supported the cause against the BLM’s overreach, but he spent so much airtime misrepresenting the situation and telling people who disagreed to unsubscribe, that his message didn’t come through clearly. I fault him for that, as he is an experienced communicator.

    i am personally offended as a subscriber that I was lumped in with the handful of idiots that were making extreme statements on the issue. They were NOT in the majority, and Glenn painted us all with the same brush and all but commanded us to distance ourselves from the Bundy situation.

  • bubber

    The fact that Glenn would condone an edited tape on Bundy makes me wonder if he would use the same tactics.Even the
    most liberal democrat deserves to be treated fairly.

  • Duddioman

    Then he should stop claiming that we are “partners” and “best friends” to get our money. I’m not asking him to tell my story, I’m asking him to not butcher the FACTS and make emotional decisions that push his supporters away from him. =/

  • Steve Politte

    How can Glenn Beck take upon his shoulders the opinions, view points, and ideologies of all of you people who are complaining and trashing him as dirt, simply because he voiced an opinion on the Bundy thing? Seems like he is being judged only on that issue, and Mr. Bundy had a right to fight for that land and to accept the support and help of those who felt the same. I supported the man. But he also is not a saint, he made comments that were maybe not so appropriate. And you folks did not call him out about it. But when Glenn Beck did, you came down on him. Glenn Beck is just as human as the next person, he has and will continue to make mistakes, he will say things that might offend someone, he may say something that even comes across as being stupid, like telling people to cancel subscriptions, and most likely, many did. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Like all of us, Glenn Beck is a sinner, a broken person, trying to find his way in all of this confusion and corruption of this country. But at last he is trying. There is no success without failure, nothing good is accomplished without risk. Any person who is trying to live out the gospel message of Jesus Christ, not only in the world, but even in this country today, has a mark on them by our government to be silenced and persecuted, Christian or a Jew.

  • Deb

    So you are still listening/watching/reading. I’ve never agreed with everything Glenn has said. World doesn’t revolve around you RD, not sure you realize that. I don’t think the Bundy situation was the time to stand either. Too many holes in that story

  • Deb

    Tea Party is no better than the other political parties. I like that he doesn’t give them a free pass either.

  • RD

    I don’t think that there were a lot of Beck subscribers who wanted violence. I certainly did not see, nor hear much about anyone calling for violence. Having the women stand in front while the government acted violently, although foolhardy, put the onus upon the government to decide if they would ( become violent) shoot women to resolve this issue. I think that in the mind of the person who suggested this that this was a way to prevent violence, or truly start a conflict, I can’t say for sure because I was not there to hear these comments in full context and I refuse to pass judgement without full knowledge.

    Glen never made a distinction between those who he said called for violence, and most of us who just felt that it was time to make a stand. He has asked so many times I cannot count to “WAKE UP AMERICA” or told us “DON’T CONFORM”. That distinction would have likely made the difference for me although I feel the edited tape was never addressed when it was found to be chopped to give the wrong impression. Now he doesn’t mention the issue, nor addresses those of us who supported PEACEFULLY, the Bundy family.

  • mtnvortex

    I mean this in the kindest possible way, but if you are still supporting A PARTY then you are insane.

  • Deb

    Are you making a point lisalake? Maybe you could write a book on it.

  • Rick Ferguson

    But you did tell us to sit down and shut up. You did tell us to conform, at least those of us that disagreed with you on the Bundy issue. You drew a line in the sand for us, for the ones you say matter so much and told us if we disagree with you, then we are no friends of yours. You are correct in one thing, your audience is unlike any other. It is an audience that YOU helped mold and a large part of that same audience felt as though you turned your back on them when you drew that line in the sand. Poor quality content is not your and The Blaze’s biggest problem right now. For years you have told us, have warned us about things that are going to happen in this country like what transpired at the Bundy ranch and that YOU would be there in front leading the charge, and when we stood up and said no more, you ran to the back of the line and left us there holding the bag. Was it the “perfect situation”, no, was it the ideal fight to take a stand on?, no, but it was an issue that a great majority of the audience YOU created were willing to stand and fight for, and you backed out and it appeared you did so because you didn’t want to be associated with something that may not be the most opportunistic situation. I have listened to you for MANY years. I respected your opinion more than any other person in a position similar to yours, but you let a lot of people down when you had the opportunity to gain even more respect from your audience. I have not listened to any of your programing since you told me to take a hike. I think you had another opportunity to make things better and gain some respect back with your audience, sadly I think you missed yet another opportunity to do that.

  • Deb

    When you don’t have an intelligent response, always go for the personal attack…it does show your IQ

  • Deb

    So tell me…if you don’t like the guy, why go to his website? Really, don’t you have an actual life to live?

  • RD

    Sad, me too. Damn near depressed over the issue. Also have to face friends and neighbors who I have pointed toward Beck and the Blaze as the last bastion of truth and honesty in reporting in America.

  • Aaron Earls

    I think it’s hilarious that there are so many people on this comments section that says that Beck lost them after the Bundy incident. Yet here they are on the Blaze. If you have truly left, how the heck do you know about this monologue and what are you doing commenting here. I know many are irked about his comments. To tell you the truth so was I. But I do get his point. Watch who you ally with and beware resorting to violence. That is an engagement that we can’t win at this point. If you want to not visit or watch Beck/the Blaze obviously that is your right. But…the fact that you ARE watching/reading and commenting gives lie to that comment. Basically, if you want to bash this show and are done with Beck…then don’t let the door hit you on the way out and leave already.

  • Mat

    I disagreed with him on his stance on the Bundy incident and was willing to stick with him. Heck, I’m an atheist and will listen to him go on for three hours about the Bible.

    BUT, when he TOLD me to unsubscribe, simply because I disagreed with him on Bundy, I obliged. I didn’t just up and leave because I disagreed with him. He, like many other business owners before him, told me he didn’t want my business because of my viewpoints.

    That’s not me or anyone else “trashing him as dirt.” He asked us to stop sending him money and we did exactly that.

    I like the guy and wish him well, but he won’t do it with my hard-earned money because he said he didn’t want it.

  • Guest2

    I am willing to be patient for this network. It is STILL 10 times better than CNN, MSNBC, Fox and others even with the lower than standards that has happened this week. I know the people behind TheBlaze are good hard working people and I will support them through these growing pains. For those of you who “seemed” to have left because you were offended…oh well. If i did not watch something or someone because I MIGHT be offended, I would never pick up a book or turn on the tv! We ALL have different opinions and that is what makes America so great. We can disagree but still live next to or with each other.

    If my family and I were able, we would move to Texas and be a part of this wonderful company/culture.

  • Boo2

    Amen R-Wood!

  • Duddioman

    It’s called email marketing. The Blaze sends news “updates” and when one pops up about an apology, it can make people who were offended curious…..

  • djvexd

    The fact that the BLM has a heavily armed SWAT-typed officers used to confiscate property, regardless of your stance on his tax issues, was the main reason. Glenn was working off of faulty info and making statements to unsubscribe. The push that went to the fence and made the BLM finally decide to release stolen property were mainly unarmed and NOT one of them pointed a weapon. There were pics of a militia sniper on an overpass and he conflated it. Militia stayed in the background and acted s backup in case BLM thugs opened fire as they stated they would. He worked off of this damn stupid notion that govt violence can be rebutted and cowed by the 60′s era peaceful protest. We are in a different era and a different stage. When they start arming agencies like the IRS, BLM, EPA there is an issue. As Judge Napolitano has said before, the BLM could have just put a lien on his property, they CHOSE to send their SWAT team. To be honest they should be unarmed and need to ask for local help if they think things might get dangerous.

  • RD

    As I said in my earlier post, I was told to listen by a supporter. Came back today to see what the truth is as I don’t believe in rushing to any sort of judgement. Still here out of curiosity and the fact I am watching an item on Ebay so I can’t just leave the computer without missing my bid.

    Don’t know that I have made any comment that suggests that the world revolves around me. I do have to say I have much respect for many of the respondents here and enjoy the dialogue. I am quite surprised how many fans who still side with Glen on this issue can immediately make disparaging remarks to others because of a differing opinion. What happened to the love and understanding ?

    Those of us who disagree don’t snipe at those of you who do. Wish the respect went both ways…….

  • Duddioman

    Thank you, Mat, that’s the point everyone is missing. I was willing to ride along and disagree on this issue, but he was SO angry and in-your-face about it, that I felt like he hated the fact that so many of us were in disagreement over the BLM issue.

    If he had made it more about the BLM than about Bundy, and not told everyone to shove off, unfriend, and unsubscribe, then there wouldn’t be this issue with his business or former supporters.

  • Janelle Rafferty

    Glenn – I listen to your radio program or podcast daily. I really enjoy the show, and some of my favorite programs are those with monologues that encourage us to do better, be better, create more, and to be courageous in pursuing our dreams and purpose in life. There have been times where your words have been an answer to prayer, and have provided me with the guidance was looking for. Thanks for that.

    Additionally, I listen because I like to laugh. You, Pat, Stu, and Jeffy are very funny men. Your humor brings a lightness to my heart. Don’t stop. I believe those that have an inner core of peace, hope, joy, with a light heart are those that will be resilient now and in the future.

    I all grateful for your contribution, your purpose, and your mission in mortality and during this season of time. My best to you in the balance you are seeking.

  • Shawn Cameron

    There were a lot of comments of people calling for violence here and on the FB page. Maybe they were not a majority but a very vocal minority to say the least.

    For me personally Glen lost me when he began bashing police and DFCS workers, so I understand where you are coming from.

  • RD

    DITTO !!

  • jimscraft

    You can see from the posts there are a few kinds of people out there- those who will bash someone no matter what they say, those that see the goodness and understand all that Glenn has been through, and then Tracy William, who wants to sucker people into some get rich quick scheme that must profit only her.
    I like Glenn because he can be funny, inciteful, and humble. If you cannot understand who he is and the pressures that he is under (financially and physically), then I am sad for you, and maybe you need to watch the Liberal media, who only want to destroy this country. I want to fight for this country- not with guns, but with our voices. We need to stand up for what is right- not tear each other apart in an attempt to make us all conform to a leftist mindset. Wake up while you can, vote for the truth, and most of all be the best person you can be and pray that God will forgive you or your sins. We are all born of sin, but we need not die in sin.

  • Mat

    I posted this as a reply to someone, but I’ll post it as a stand alone, as well:

    I disagreed with him on his stance on the Bundy incident and was willing to stick with him. Heck, I’m an atheist and will listen to him go on for three hours about the Bible. I’m not offended by about 99% of the things he says, even when he is bashing me and my viewpoints.

    BUT, when he TOLD me to unsubscribe simply because I disagreed with him on Bundy, I obliged. I didn’t just up and leave because I disagreed with him. If that were the case, I would have done it years ago. He, like many other business owners before him, told me he didn’t want my business because of my viewpoints.

    I like the guy and wish him well, but he won’t do it with my hard-earned money because he said he didn’t want it.

    I’l still go to The Blaze for news, but I won’t pay for it because he specifically told me not to.

  • Shawn Cameron

    “i am personally offended as a subscriber that I was lumped in with the handful of idiots that were making extreme statements on the issue. They were NOT in the majority, and Glenn painted us all with the same brush and all but commanded us to distance ourselves from the Bundy situation.”

    I thought I was. For years, my husband and I sat and watched nearly the entire morning show – all THREE hours of it. Every evening, when we finished our work for the day, we would sit by the fire and watch the evening show. We felt like it was a fireside chat with you, Glenn, and it was lovely.

    For years, I let the Blaze double bill us. It was my mistake, signing up twice. But we believed in the work so much that we let it happen. For years. I am one of those viewers who could “follow the breadcrumbs” you left for us.

    “[We] Will never say ‘shut up, sit down’”

    You did. I didn’t know who was right, who was wrong at Bunkerville. But I trusted in you to help shed some sunlight on the news there. Instead, supporters of the man you helped villanize were told to go away – to unsubscribe and to ‘unlike’ you. Bundy himself was ridiculed from the start. And competing news organizations – yes, organizations that report the news albeit ‘tinfoilhatty’ for many folks – you told us that they were trash and to stay away from them.

    Your news coverage on the Blaze was poor at best. I read the BLM documents, too bad your reporter didn’t.

    My husband and I looked at each other and said ‘no more’ that day. I cancelled everything. It hurt. I cried. I could no longer trust you Glenn.

    I trusted you so much that I even sent you my resume – even though I had a really nice job already and wasn’t in the market. Yea, yea, I know, you get a ton of resumes daily. But I’m really good and I would have given up everything to come join you. I would have even lived in what was sneeringly called “Glenbeckistan” (what ever happened to that?).

    I hope you take care of yourself. I hope you find some people who will tell you ‘no Glenn, bad idea’ instead of sycophantic yes-men. I hope Pat and Stu get serious and stop promoting Taco B*** when they sub for you (perhaps you could use the awesome talent of Inga Barks out of KNZR from time-to-time like Mark Levin does). Pat and Stu are not representing you well with the morning zoo junk.

    Sadly, however, I have learned that hope is indeed a 4 letter word. You’re not that into politics anyway. As you said in your interview “I’m much more into culture than I am into politics.” Here’s the link: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/glenn-beck-moves-movie-production-696274

    But I can still hope you apologize for telling your viewers to shut up and sit down before you stop making news and start making movies.

    Thanks for the good years, Glenn. I’ll try to remember you fondly.

  • Nancy

    Exactly! “Lumped in” is exactly the right term here. It was very painful to watch.

  • Nancy

    I’m happier for it too —- hmm, it is interesting, isn’t it? After years of attending daily GB sessions, stopping made me happier.

  • Aaron Earls

    You should unsubscribe then to the updates then. If I was as virulently anti-Beck as you are that is what I would do. Just as I did to many sites following the Romney loss when I just needed a political break. Listen, I actually don’t disagree with your logic with your anger. I just think a lot of the people here are too black and white and take everything said way too seriously. This guy is on radio/tv A LOT and will say and do things that will offend everyone eventually. There isn’t a talk show personality or politician who I haven’t disagreed with virulently at some point. But MY philosophy is if I like the clear majority of things said then I’m willing to allow the occasional disagreement. Call it a family spat if you will.

  • Jon Galt

    Party? Like the Re-PUBE-icans? The ones that gave us no child left behind? When they controlled House, Senate and Presidency they decide to grow government with more programs and more spending?

    The real problem is both parties are in it for two reason – to enrich themselves and retain control.

    It’s called email marketing. I got a link to this story about Glenn’s “emotional” statement addressing his subscriber’s concerns.

  • Andres Davila

    The erosion of beck’s audience could have easily been predicted. I guess beck didn’t appreciate the number of listeners/viewers who were racists, anarchists, and anti muslims. The combination of all three made a large portion of beck’s audience tune in to see what hateful things beck would say about Obama. People were paying good money every month to watch the taping of a radio show and to watch beck give one of his monologues about Obama. They could have paid less to watch Netflx which offers thousands of tv shows and movies. But now beck doesn’t support Bundy and all he talks about is a Hindu and black man. This is not what his audience wants. He may never win his audience back.

  • Joanne DiCarlo

    Yes! Exactly how I felt!! It wasn’t so much Beck’s lack of support of Bundy, it was his rant and telling us if we supported Bundy we were no friend of his and to defriend him where I thought he was way off base. He always said we didn’t have to agree on everything. Just the other morning he said he would love to sit down with Brad Pitt (a huge Obama supporter) and Angelina Jolie. So, he is willing to sit down with two of the biggest Progressives because they say believe in the Second Amendment (which strange because he didn’t believe in it for the Bundy supporters)…but someone like me, because I support Bundy, he has no use for. Penn Jillette is the biggest atheist/anarchist but he respects him? He forgets it is ordinary people like us that built the Blaze….not Pitt and Jolie. I think he is becoming too infatuated with Hollywood. Well, let him go to them for support.

  • FoleyGuy

    Glenn, you did a good job trying to explain what is going on with The Blaze. The public, as you are finding out, usually does not have the patience to deal with anything less than their own level of perfection, whatever that is. I think where you hit me wrong were your comments about the protesters at the Bundy’s legally carrying firearms. You have sponsors like Cheaper than Dirt, Henry Rifles, Liberty Safes and the concealed weapon company, not to mention in one of your commercials, you pull a semi-auto from behind your back. You send a message of supporting the right to bear arms and then just because this is a protest out in the middle of nowhere, it is not okay with you. Probably the way you commented on the issue was what I didn’t like. I do applaud you and your staff for not getting wholly behind Bundy before you knew the whole story. I do believe that I will continue to support The Blaze because it is the only news network that does not have blinders on, including Fox. God Bless You.

  • Jeff

    Glad to see Beck has the integrity to tell the pitchfork crowd that he disagrees with them and they can like it or leave it…

  • djvexd

    I saw that also, they also asked for sub-machineguns the other day. Have an awesome weekend brother/sister.

  • Nancy

    What is with GB channeling God directly? His Twitter profile states:
    “God really only has two rules: 1. Do it. 2. Don’t do it. Our job is to
    live in a way we know which one of those two things He needs from us
    right now.”

    How does he know? I understand that God speaks to people. I get that. But to be so durned sure of yourself to put it on your Twitter profile???? Arrogant and distasteful in my view.

    One of the other things that I have found disturbing is the daily
    display of prayer on the Blaze TV. Isn’t it in the Bible that you should
    not display your prayer? I’m not entirely sure, so please correct me if
    I’m wrong. It

  • Keith Pallo

    Violence initiated by the bundy supporters was what the government was hoping for to start the :mission” they are on to destroy america. They now know what buttons to push so they can claim to be victims and shoot back with the intent to kill everyone. That is what happened with the French Revolution. It wasn’t about ideas to improve the well being of all. It was about getting even with the ruling elites which ended up creating unmitigatedhorrow for the French people as a whole. That is whay Glenn is addressing whenhe says to avoid the violence first tactic to intiate the revolution! We need to have a well thought out plan that starts with the ballot box and that tries to effect change peacefully so that it doesn’t degenirate it petty grudges resulting in rampant killing which only then leads to a dictatorship aka Napolean!! The government is going to continue to push those buttons because they fear the voters!!! Let’s do this correctly so we re-establish the Dreams of our Founders and not the dreams of Obama’s father!!

  • RD

    This is the best you can do?

  • Nancy

    Right? I heard clearly “sit down, shut up”

  • Duddioman

    Oh, come ON, Deb! That’s tame compared to what Pat & Stu have said to Glenn about Glenn.

  • Joanne DiCarlo

    The point is Beck told us to unfriend him and go away if we supported Bundy.

  • Nancy

    Yes, it was the anger and “in-your-faceness” that was like a splash of cold water in the face.

  • Anonymous

    I am a bit confused by Beck recently and not sure who he really is. He seems to following a business plan to build up a base of support and then once he has some success…he says I am not with those crackpots over there. The brow beating he was giving to Tea Party members this morning was a little too much.

  • Nancy

    It was insulting to the core. I was on the fence about the whole thing, and trusted Glenn to help shed light on it. But my trust was shattered.

  • Joanne DiCarlo

    It was not a matter of agreeing or disagreeing with Beck. It was the fact that he did a whole rant on how if you supported Bundy you were no friend of his and to defriend him. To this day I have not heard him say he was sorry or maybe went too far in saying that. So I guess it still stands that he doesn’t want to be “friends” with Bundy supporters.

  • RD

    Throughout this issue there was no violence by the Bundy supporters, even though there was violence from the government several times. If the people on the scene were simply looking for an excuse to becomes violent it seems the dogs, tasers, and knocking down civilians would have elicited that response.

    So what did the government learn? Even when attacked the people did not react violently. Could it have risen to a different level if deadly force were used against the civilians, who knows that but God.

  • Al

  • Nancy

    I do have to wonder, to paraphrase a well-known relationship book, is Glenn not that into us anymore?

    He said “I’m much more into culture than I am into politics” here: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/glenn-beck-moves-movie-production-696274

    And we all know where he’s going with the studios, etc. Perhaps the beginning of the end?

  • Joanne DiCarlo

    Well said RD. My feelings exactly. I took his advice and unfriended him. I still get his emails, but mostly hit the delete button (glad I opened this one). I have listened a couple of times to his radio show since, one being the other morning when he said he would love to sit down with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (but we should go away?), respects Penn Jillette (but not us?). I heard this, turned off the radio off. I listened last night, but didn’t hear anything that would make me change my mind. I think he is becoming too infatuated with Hollywood. Maybe they will support the Blaze…

  • Al

    Offended? Buddy this guy is a radio personalty. Why are so invested to begin with? You should want to be challenged in your thinking.

    Nancy get some perspective. Why are so invested in a radio personality?

  • Nancy

    I’m here because I wanted to see what’s happened recently and if the Glenn we once knew was doing OK. You don’t know me.

    I could respond by throwing some shade back at you but I think we probably agree on more things than we disagree on and I won’t stoop.

  • Nancy

    Yea, you are exactly right. I’ll take that one on the chin.

    Lesson learned.

  • Duddioman

    Thank you for your wonderful advice on how to manage my media inputs, subscriptions, and information gathering in general.

    I find it curious, however, that you complain about people wanting things “too black and white” while at the same time chastising me for not going all the way and cutting off every method of communication or information having to do with the Blaze.

    I still occasionally tune in to the Glenn Beck Radio program, to see what their direction is currently. What I am addressing is the years of support, both financial support and moral support that GLENN was willing to crap on over this one issue.

    You seem to be missing the point of several posters here. We weren’t ready to sever ties, GLENN was raging about how we needed to kiss off and unfriend, unsubscribe, and unlisten if we saw any merit in the Bundy situation. He did a very poor job of separating those of us sympathetic to Bundy and against the BLM and the handful of idiots that were calling for violence. He gave them entirely too much credit, and the rest of us too little credit.

  • Joanne DiCarlo

    Exactly, Rick!

    It wasn’t his opinion of the Bundy situation. It was his reaction to those of us who support Bundy. He told us to defriend him, unsubscribe, stop financially supporting him, etc. if we supported Bundy. He told us to sit down and shut up. So I am just following his directive.

    In case you missed this, perhaps this sheds some light on the subject. Surprised? Strange he feels he was tearing the country apart, but not the left. Interesting. But then look at how Rubio and Rand Paul are shifting to “center”(?)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0P4bMJMoulk

    Something or somebody(s) are perhaps pressuring Glenn? But then when you have politicos like Senator Mitch McConnell saying they’re going to crush to tea party. Do they even know who falls into that category? Many many grass roots people with varying ideas and opinions except for the fact they really sense our country is going down the wrong path.

  • Robert Ditzler

    Glenn, I am almost identical to everyone that has posted a comment here with one exception, I understand the fact that you are not perfect nor am I. Many seem to focus so much on one specific topic or those things that offend them that they don’t see the real truth. One of me favorite quotes of all time: “The one that is without sin, cast the first stone”. I ask all of you to remember that all of us here are imperfect. We all make mistakes and we can’t please everyone all of the time. So why the “Glenn Lynching”? Glenn is right about one thing that I think we can all agree on, his audience is one of the smartest anywhere or we wouldn’t be here right now. Glenn is evolving again, from radio to television to the Blaze and now ???? I might be a fool but I believe that he is inherently good and only wants to be a positive influence. All of you may judge him if you feel you are qualified…….

  • Duddioman

    I don’t get ALL my news and information from any one source. Is that the impression I gave you?

    I also don’t support everything Bundy says and does.

    But I DO take offense to Glenn telling me to take a hike if I disagreed with him over the BLM issue. He said on the air that if I support Bundy over the BLM that I should unfriend, unsubscribe, and unlisten to his show. I thought that statement to be extreme, and offensive. I am voicing that here.

    Your interest in this issue is……..?

  • ksrgl444

    Yes, I believe Glenn really screwed up with the Clive Bundy episode. It was so weirdly, strangely out of character for him. But, I guess I gotta say, for the other 99.9% of the time, he is truly heartfelt about learning, growing and becoming a better person and having a better nation. God bless.

  • Anonymous

    There are those who’ve had near death experiences who’ve seen foreign troops in the US & who understand it’s not God’s will that we have battles w/ them–that we do what we have to in non-confrontational ways. Maybe there’s some parallel here.

  • Duddioman

    I am and have been challenged, it’s part of why I paid to subscribe. But to be told as a longstanding customer that basically my money is no good here because they don’t want to serve my kind, is well,….. wait for it……. offensive.

    See how that works? =)

  • Duddioman

    Al, get some perspective. If you had a favorite restaurant that you and the family liked to visit because you really liked the food and the owner was a friendly guy, then one day he explodes and tells you not to come back because he doesn’t want your kind of money, that would blow your mind.

    Not the end of the world, but offensive nonetheless. It’s the same with Glenn.

  • Anonymous

    Within every group there are always the stray or extremists. Remember the tea party gatherings with some “racists” amongst them. Were they for real or just agents to provoke disturbance? One never really knows, now, do they.
    And consider that in light of the extreme liberal left leading our country who would like nothing better than to blame an incident on the “tea party”. Keep in mind, many of those militia types are actually police/fbi types. In fact Oath Keeper only allow full membership to such.
    Even in the OWS movements, there were black ops creating trouble.

  • RD

    You misunderstand; it is the fact that WE (those of us who felt we should support Bundy) were judged, and prematurely at that. I don’t see many judging Glenn at all, Just his actions in regard to this issue and his demand that we unfriend, unsubscribe, and don’t listen.

  • Chas Jones

    Glenn is human, as are we all. My understanding of Christianity differs from Glenn’s and the church of Latter Day Saints. However, I agree with Glenn that TWO things must happen if we are to have any Hope of restoring and preserving our Liberty; God must send another “Great Awakening,” where millions more come to Salvation in Jesus Christ and those already “saved” renew and improve their daily walk with Christ … and secondly, we must return to our constitutions [federal and State] as written and ratified, and to fealty to valid law and not to invalid, unconstitutional Acts and actions.

    I believe Glenn “turned on Bundy” prematurely and unwisely. Bundy is not a racist. However, so long as Glenn gets far more correct than incorrect, so long as Glenn gives us more facts than error, I will remain a subscriber.

    For now.

  • Duddioman

    You’ve got it exactly backwards, it’s not a “Glenn lynching” it’s that Glenn lynched those of us who disagreed with him over the BLM vs Bundy. He misrepresented the situation and then exploded on the radio show one day that if we disagreed we should “unsubscribe, unfriend, and unlisten” to the Blaze.

    We were basically told he didn’t want to serve “our kind” and that our money was no good to him. It was entirely uncalled for.

  • RD

    And so would I, if Glenn had admitted this and not refused so far to address this. Seems that he was very angry and made comments I felt were truly out of character. The issue now is that he refuses to speak of the matter or address this to his fans. This is what I was told this video was about when it is not that at all. I don’t really know what this video is about, maybe I missed something but it addresses some programming issues and remodeling issues, not what I was told.

    Strange that Glenn didn’t see the Bundy case in connection with Agenda 21 and land for collateral.

    I can’t afford to be a subscriber since I’m retired, but I do follow Glenn and the Blaze on FB and get his emails. He is probably the most sincere man I have ever watched on TV and listened to on the radio. While I don’t agree with the Bundy situation, I think that was the only time I didn’t. I also believe Glenn helped to save my retirement and 401k because I made changes to those accounts and didn’t lose any money when the crash happened.
    Glenn, like everyone else, needs a break, downtime and hugs from his family. I couldn’t begrudge him for doing that and support the changes going on in his company.

    I watched Glenn when he was on Fox, but I don’t like the religious angle. I am not an atheist, but I think organized religions just create trouble in most cases. We’ve got the religion of Global Warming, the Pope living with billions of dollars worth of gold and other assets talking about wealth redistribution, etc……

    Glenn makes some good points, and brings many issues to light- I respect him for that. I’d guess, though, his bottom line is making money. That might tick some people off, but if you follow these talk show hosts long enough, it really does boil down to making money over principles (I wouldn’t mind being wrong on that point, though)

    Where would Bundy be today had the BLM taken all his cattle? Go fight it in court after his cattle are gone. Interesting though, that the BLM tried to sell the cattle but couldn’t find buyers for them.
    This whole ordeal was planned. It’s politics. Interesting that several states had been planning a session to figure out ways to fight off all the land grabs and federal interference.

  • Carol Waltman

    Every bone in my body says fight, fight, fight. But I know I am wrong It is so hard to do nothing. You see people destroying our way of life. You see the average American completely unaware of it. They are too busy with life of they can’t bear to think about it. Then you hear all those claims, if we do this, this will happen and it doesn’t. I keep saying how long can the evil people get away with what they are doing. I know the answer. Until it hurts people, all people in their pocketbook, they will continue to stay unaware, thinking everything going smoothly. I understand the principal of MLK and other peacemakers way of thinking. I even yell at God and say why can’t you get your host of angles to appear in the sky and tell people they are wrong and to stop killing people. How much longer do we wait until something happens?

  • Carol Waltman

    Everytime I am sure something big is going to happen, like a huge earthquake, www3 or the market crashes, it doesn’t happen. I don’t want bad things to happed at least not to me, maybe the other guys. My job was recently phased out and it hit me hard in the gut. I got to work and make money just to pay the rent, and buy food and all those other practical things one must do to stay alive. Lucky for me I will be moved to a different account so I understand when bad things happens it will affect everyone so I really don’t want them to happen and yet I don’t know how people will wake up without them happening.

  • Rick Ferguson

    Nobody on this earth knows what God’s will is. God gave us the will to stand up for ourselves and to fight when a fight needs to happen. Im not saying violence was needed, but you cant take it off the table and just say its God’s will that we be non-confrontational. There is a fight coming sooner or later, There are only two cheeks to turn and when a bully keeps punching you, eventually, when you have exhausted all other options, you will have to punch back in order to protect yourself. Those other options are getting very close to being all exhausted and yet we are still being punched in the face. What Glenn told us is that we are to never punch back and if we do, or if we think we need to, then we are no longer wanted as his “best friend”.

  • Chas Jones

    Your comment here is absurd.

  • Robert Ditzler

    RD and Duddioman, you are both correct that the “Glenn Lynching” was a bit much. Obviously most of us here know Glenn fairly well and at times he gets, well, overzealous at times and our feelings get hurt because we support him. I still haven’t really understood how America is expected to sit back and be sheep. I support Bundy in that the government doesn’t have the right to inflict violence on America. The rest is always up for debate. (i.e. how to stop it) He is begging for diplomacy and faith but I don’t see how it is possible. Sometimes I have to look hard to see the goodness. You both know he hates violence and wants to distance himself from it. I wouldn’t think to give advise on weather or not to abandon him at his request but it’s obvious you know him enough to judge for yourselves if his overall message is worth staying for…..

    You’re throwing the baby out with the bath water.

  • Chris Layton

    Glenn, you were the greatest thing on TV and the internet for many years. You were inspiring and you had vision. Here is my take on your current situation from my own experience. When God commissions you to do a job, you will know when he supports it and you will succeed only because God supports it. But once God says “It is enough”, then you are through. I honestly think Glenn that you are going through this time where God is trying to tell you that your days on radio and TV are done. You’ve done a good job but honestly, the flow of intelligence which is a sign of pure inspiration just isn’t there anymore. I’ve checked in to your show from time to time in hopes that things would change and I’m sorry, it just isn’t there anymore…… It’s time to go home. Spend the time wisely with your wife and children and on your knees. Be a George Washington and recognize when your turn in the limelight is over and the generations will celebrate your memory.

  • Sane$Sober

    Oh I hope Glen understands the point Bundy supporters are making; i.e. that the Feds have become an oppressor govt and we need a Constitutional Convention to fix this assault upon our Constitutional Freedoms..

  • Anonymous

    The only light Glenn shed was the msm playbook. You cannot mess with the Feds you must submit. I understand the “feds’ had snipers aimed at people, before any of these so-called ‘m1litia’ people showed up. Not to mention the treatment of the cattle by these so-called ‘environment’ police. The metro police got everything under control as they should.

  • Rick Ferguson

    I cant speak for anyone else, all I can do is say how I feel and how this all came across to me, but Im pretty sure I am not the only one that feels this way. I feel that Glenn felt he, and The Blaze were big enough and secured enough to lose a few fans. I think it had a far greater impact on the bottom line than he anticipated. Glenn told me, and I am guessing many other loyal paying customers that he no longer wanted or needed our business due to the fact that we disagreed with his stance on an issue. Well, he got what he asked for. Now he is addressing a few issues of shoddy programing in an attempt to get some of those subscription dollars back. I think until Glenn addresses the real reason his fans left his side, which was his willingness to toss us aside, he will never get most of us back. I believe it is a trust issue, I think those of us that left feel we cant trust Glenn anymore and its sad because Glenn is the person in media I trusted the most.

  • Joanne DiCarlo

    No, didn’t always agree with everything he said and still listened as we won’t agree on everything. But when someone tells me I am no friend of his, to unfriend him, he doesn’t want my support, etc. because I believed in something, I took him at his word.

  • Sane$Sober

    Well written, Jolene. I agree. Glen is not infallible (none of us are) but, to me, he is sincere and wants to see the Nation return to the standards that made us all “One”. I pray to the LORD that he succeeds. God bless.

    … unfriend, unsubscribe, and unlisten to his show.

    Either Glenn was getting some heat from powerful sources or he just acted to stave off that kind of heat to avoid being labeled a terr0r1st.
    There was clearly something going on as he was outside his usual mode. Words, voice inflection, pitch presented a different Glenn.

    I must say the studio you had at the end of your Fox News career was the best you ever had, it was so warm and inviting, you used a lot of oak, walnut, cheery, earth tones it felt like you were sitting right in my living room having coffee with me. I have Dish Network so I am grateful to be able watch you everyday. However today your studios feel very cooled, to open and way to big. You use metal covered chairs and you use cooled hash colors. It makes a difference. Your life line is better when we feel your sitting in our living rooms. I like the camera moving, but your studio’s are to cooled! Your office rocks, but white is to cooled again… Also Dish Network is not sending a true HD signal, 1080 X 1920 of GBTV, it is not even 720p, Your camera’s in studio look to all be 1080i, but what your sending Dish is not, or they are not rebroadcasting it in true HD. If you truly care about your programing that needs fixed first and for most. People love you Glenn, and The Blaze simple rocks! We are behind you and cheering you on. Don’t let your brain exploded over the stress brother.

  • Cindy Kearns

    Sorry Glenn, but you knew you didn’t have the money to make the studio changes when you started them. Your messages lately have left me frustrated. I don’t know you anymore. Do not try to play to my sympathies. What happened to you telling the truth about what is happening? I totally respect your religious views, but do NOT tell me I need to be gentle and meek. Stop trying to play on my sympathies and go back to telling the truth as you used to do. I don’t care if you don’t have enough money to build new studios. I DO care about the truth. You used to tell the truth w/out falling back on your religious euphonies. STOP IT!!! Tell the truth as you really know it and stop begging for money! Telling the truth with FACTS will bring more support than your pathetic ‘poor me’ videos. I was devastated when you left FOX news, but now, you are getting on my last nerve!

    When I saw him interview Bundy with such disdain and rudeness, that was the tipping point for me. Though there were many other things before then. And the reason he hasn’t apologized is because he thinks he’s right. By the way, today I got the standard email saying it’s not too late to keep my membership. I don’t work that way. I didn’t impulsely cancel my membership. I waited several weeks to see how I felt. Then I knew, it was time to go. I was a fan time long before 9/11. But when I make up my mind that I’m done, I am done for good. I don’t look back.

  • Cindy Kearns

    Oh, and by the way .. I TOTALLY SUPPORT BUNDY! Put that in your poor me episodes and smoke it!

    The 60′s radicals are driving are behind the govt wheel now. And many of those 60′s protest were not exactly peaceful. People have little idea the mindset they are dealing with.

    He sounded no different than the marxists trying to shut down free speech. I think Glenn’s reaction was more about him not wanting to be associated with the Bundy protesters. Waco comes to mind.

  • Anonymous

    Glenn needs to quit being so slavishly devoted to his non-violence, civil protest model. He saw the guns, heard some old frontier justice mentality being spoken into our modern era at the Bundy Ranch, and the man who is painting himself as a latter day MLK or Ghandi balked at that.

    Well, Glenn, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t pretend to be following in the footsteps of our Founders and not accept that you will encounter Patriots with guns along the way. You should have actually attempted to understand what was going on at the Bundy Ranch, instead of parroting what the mainstream media was saying. Christ Almighty, Fox News was more sympathetic to Bundy and his supporters than Glenn was!

    Remember, Glenn: John Adams and Sam Adams had the same goals, it’s just that Sam was a bit more ready and eager for the inevitable fight than John was. John, however, was not so stupid that he cast Sam from his life, and the Patriots didn’t try to carve out the Sons of Liberty from their midst.

    If you want to attract those who unsubscribed back into the fold, then make a full apology for your mistaken coverage of the Bundy Ranch story, and publicly acknowledge that those willing to fight for the Constitution, and not just march or speak for it, are just as decent and patriotic as you are.

  • Paul G

    Hmmmmmm…THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS ‘unfriended’ you Glenn (by your own request). THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS ‘unsubscribed’ to TheBlaze, (by your own request). Maybe THOUSANDS ‘unsubscribed’ to BlazeTV, (by your own request). All because, THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS told you you were wrong on Bundy. Now you’re doing, “Boo hoo, I’m broke. I need Money!”. HAHAHAHA

    Very interesting point about the studio changes. I really relied upon him for the truth, but that was my mistake.

    Did you see the full video of Bundy’s sppech about slavery? Or just the talking points published by NYT? Like Glenn always advised, check the sources.

  • Nancy

    A sincere apology would go far. I mean, those of us spurned – those who unsubscribed – are here, right? We’re taking time out of our day to be here and to comment. We must all want this set right at some level.

    Sometimes being different is good and sometimes it doesn’t work. I am going to hang in there in spite of the Bundy thing. Got to give him credit for what he did in the past.

    Sounds like you want to be a martyr too. Nope. Not gonna work. At least with me.

    More importantly, Bundy being a rancher, understood what the farmers and ranchers have been dealing with over the last 20 + years. Incidentally, much of this started after the Rio Treaty signed by Republican George Bush. Off course it was James Baker during the Reagan administration who announced that countries will need to put up collateral for debt. Indeed, land for debt. After all, gold is no longer of any value. Well, according to Bernanke.

    I have been with Mr. Beck & Co. ever since he announced his intention to start his own going concern…. I took on the ‘extreme’ membership.
    I have to say I agree with most of what Glenn & Co. put out there. None of what’s been presented has come back false. I know we all are impassioned, emboldened, even stirred by the Holy Spirit at certain times, depending on the subject matter, and state things in the heat of the moment that we either truly believe or just off the cuff comments. I know I do it – does anyone else? If no cast that stone and be done with it.
    See, I’m still on the fence a bit on this issue. We pay taxes, even though the 16th Amendment wasn’t completely ratified, and we feel that every quarter & April 15th?! [wish Election Day was April 15th!!!] I have to pay System Development Fees just to build a house, above & beyond the permit fees & Public Works fees….but I pay them, reluctantly. I want to go from Miami to Orlando Florida and I have 7 tolls to pay…. I think its weird, don’t like it, but I pay it because that’s the way they set things up there. You lease land to grow food – you pay after harvest [or whatever] their just due. New property ownership means new rules, thus, you don’t like it; move on.
    Although I’m extremely opposed to governmental control of my life, and avoid it at every turn that I can, I’ve asked myself “where’s my red line in the sand?” Where will my mouth answer before my mind catches up? Well, I hope seldom, but more than likely, more than it should…. or that ‘I’ hear of. LOL
    Humans are a passionate species. We were made that way. Nonetheless, disagreement and stance could mean loss or gain…. but I think sometimes there will be that moment for us all where we will not yield. You can equate it to serving on a sub in the Navy and the Capt. saying, “…and if you don’t like it, you can leave the boat – right now!” [at 600m down]
    Maybe this is where we need to practice a little forgiveness & agree to disagree. Act with patience, kindness, self control until the burnout stage is relieved? I know how he feels. In my business right now – I’m on the edge of trying to keep up with everything; clients, family – the lot. IT seems the pace is panic of sorts – I don’t get it?? If you still can’t forgive him, then maybe it is time for that ministry to you to end. Otherwise, love conquers all…. and we move on….. thanks Glenn & Co [family]

  • Nette

    I wish you would have worked this story(Bundy) as you have so many others. You should have had a reporter there, you should have interviewed some of the participants, not highlighted the loons. You lumped everyone in as a bunch of radical redneck gun tote-ting,Racist – loons, just has OTHERS have in the past (Obama). Bundy’s stand was about the overreach of Our Government, which have overreached in so many different areas of our lives. It had nothing to do with racism! Bundy didn’t articulate himself well, but if you knew him you would know he wasn’t racist! NOR the PEOPLE standing with him!!!! I believe your heart is good and I hope you continue to do good things, but like so many others who have already expressed themselves here, I’m disappointed, and I know you don’t care if we stay or go, (The Bundy supporters)you did make that perfectly clear. God Bless you, God Bless America! May we all continue to work towards preserving our Freedoms.

    Show me an intellectual, creative, artistic person, sensitive, truth-seeking entrepreneur with the best intentions of the world and people at large. WHO DOES AGREE WITH EVERY ONE ON EVERY TOPIC. That is what is insane. Give it a break people harping on negativity….Why jump to negative comments. Let’s watch it unroll and “hold our tongue and judgment”…Blessing as we cannot all be right 100% of the time, after all we are individual miracles made in the image of God. Viva la difference as that is what makes the world go ’round!

  • Robert Starkand

    I’ve been reading this thread and I’m sorry you feel the way you do. The way I heard Glenn was that he was against violence, period. And I understand the vehemence he used in expressing that point. What the MSM and the pundits and politicians would do if they could any way associate Glenn with violence would destroy everything he is trying to accomplish. The overreach of the BLM, the weaponizing of agencies, the codifying of criminal behavior for our government is all very frightening. I believe that Glenn is on your side on this issue as we all are. I suggest that when you are offended by someone on your side, take a moment to be offended and then let it go. Life is too short and we need each other.

  • djvexd

    I was referring to Glenn pulling from MLK’s civil disobedience doctrine. Which he repeatedly harps on, which is fine and appropriate in certain situations. For him, Pat and Stu to make blanket statements about things they didn’t really research was insulting at best.

  • Tim Morehead

    I’m trying really hard, Glenn, but after you comparing the Bundy supporters to OWS, and your childish rant telling us to unfriend you, I can barely stand to even look at your face anymore.

  • Rick Ferguson

    Bundy isn’t the issue. Everybody has their own take on if he was right or wrong as everyone has that right to. The issue here is Glenn Beck telling the people that have stood beside him year after year and taken the abuse right along side of him because we knew we were all on the side of right and truth, that they were no longer welcome to associate themselves with him because they disagreed with him on an issue. he took a gamble and sacrificed a part of his loyal supporters to do nothing more than protect his image. Since when has Glenn Beck cared what others thought of him, especially for taking a stand? SInce he felt he and the network would be okay if he alienated a portion of his fan base, that’s when. When he was more interested in becoming more mainstream to attract those in Hollywood, since he is going to be some kind of movie mogul now, that’s when. When he figured out he had finally milked enough people into Goldline, that’s when. When the issue at had did not match up with his soon to be released book, so it wasn’t important enough to him to stand and fight, that’s when. Glenn Beck had me fooled, there were many times I actually thought he was different than other media types, that he actually cared more about “the cause” than himself and the dollar, I was wrong. Now his network needs money? Now he is sorry, but not sorry enough to actually apologize for what he did to his loyal supporters he tossed aside.

  • Reliquary

    well first off, you have no way to know with any credibility that “THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS ‘unfriended’ you” So that is a LIE. secondly He doesn’t ask for money EVER. Nice dramatic exaggeration, but still another LIE. And last Paul, I have seen your martyr post before it was pathetically unhelpful then and it is equally so now, just less original. Please unsubscribe now so i don’t have to see it again. Thankx

  • Debi Deason

    OK, let’s back up a step. As I remember it, Glen said if you agreed with an armed confrontation with BLM, and think violence is the way to go, you were not a fan or friend of his. He disagreed with the method, not the message. And, in case you missed it, he had a couple extended conversations with the Bundys. Just because he wants to go the non-violent route (ala MLK) doesn’t mean he “sold out”. I think it’s time to grow up and get past the same methods of violent, confrontational protest that have failed historically. And don’t quote the founding fathers bit. They did everything in their power to avoid violence. And once they won the battle, they set up a system to make it much less likely to need violence to change.

  • raisincain

    There is no way on earth you were ever part of Glenn’s audience…

  • raisincain

    I know your ‘On the Record’ show is very expensive to put on, but is there any way to let us tweet out clips from it?

    My thinking is if we could share some clips from the Benghazi episode (especially segments telling how Obama turned his head when Kaddaffi was prepared to step down), I believe that may bring in many more subscribers!

  • hobble

    I think glen understands but he needed to be clear on what he meant ,I took his comment in the context that as americans we are a country of laws, bundy lost numerous cases in court surely the feds went to far it should have never gone as far as it did but bundy bears some blame here all the other ranchers paid there grazing fees why not bundy? I am sympathetic to bundys curcumstance just because of the way the feds handled the stand off, but bundy used the sympathy of others to try and get a free ride while other ranchers paid there fee.
    If bundy had paid his fees and the feds came and confiscated his cattle I would gladly stand with bundy and call the feds out.

    All I see are a bunch of whiners commenting there feelings about Glenn’s disagreeing opinion on something you felt strongly about. Sounds to me like all you conservative tolerant individuals can have liberal tendencies. If your looking for an apology you’re wasting your time. You have you’re opinion and he has his, whether we agree upon it or disagree. To come on here and continue calling falocy and whining about you’re feelings getting hurt, them you’re no different then a liberal and should go join their cry baby groups. If I offended you oh well, grow a pair of shoulders, suck the snot back in you’re nose and grow up seriously. If you can’t accept his opinion then your’s deserves no credibility either!!!

  • Denise Sanchez

    Been w/ the Blaze since the beginning and you Glenn even longer. I’ve always been understanding of your networks problems. Overall, considering, you have done well in my eye’s. I love Dana, but also miss our 5 O’clock time together.

    Go sell another book Glenn and ride this wave. The rest of us will build the agitation to make the wave. You can report and blather about it. Then you can write a book about it and tell us how great we are because we sacrificed…. while you watched and made $$$. What a missed opportunity. You could have organized us and made a difference. Instead, you are another Sean Hannity Tea Party poster boy… as long as it lines your pockets.

    You nailed it!! Very good perspective.

  • Tyler James Lowery

    Glenn, I understand what you are doing with The Blaze, and I understand the importance of keeping the light of truth burning. Maybe I am the only one, but to me I actually found it refreshing and interesting seeing the construction going on in the background.

    To me it said “look guys, something new is coming, this is what your money is building”. I can see the money work here building the network that will spread the truth.

    Also, I particularly like the morning meeting segments. I like to see behind the scenes…too often “TV” celebrities are only pictured as they want us to see them. Everything is scripted and everything is just so. This adds a sense of realism to the show; a sense of down to earth familiarity. I feel like I am sitting around with my buddies discussing the news events.

    Basically what I am saying is that we have faith in you Glenn, and we are not so superficial that we would walk away over a few changes in programming or construction in the background.

    Cut yourself some slack man, you are doing a great thing here! Keep it up!

  • Stephanie Soucek

    I could find something I disagree with every single commentator or politician on and it seems to me people jump ship at the slightest disagreements. I’m pretty conservative, but it seems to me conservatives can be very fickle and very few people are ever good enough for them to stick with. I like Glenn and believe he’s got character and strong convictions, so its ok if we disagree once in a while. cut him some slack…

  • BigMG

    I believe that Liberty is the ligand between civility and religion. We are free to speak our minds, and that should be honored; but when civility no longer exists, or religion no longer binds us to God, then our liberty is compromised. I support Glenn because, agree or not, he has worked tirelessly to keep those three things together.

  • raisinhell

    With any due respect, I’m unsure of any biases you have, but there’s been nothing I’ve heard from Glenn that indicates he wants to be a martyr. I pray he stays with us and brings his message for many, many years…perhaps you don’t?

    Do your own research, don’t believe me – is what he always said. Well I did on Bundy and I disagreed with Glenn but wasn’t going to cast him aside as he did me! Sean Hannity was the same way – he was almost foaming at the mouth calling Bundy a racist and then turned around and praised Michael Jordan talking about the when he was growing up he (MJ) was a racist and hated all whites. Go figure!

    not slow…nobody can’t say that glenn and his attitude towards just about everything has drastically changed just in the last 2 or 3 months! his show even not the same..like yesterday morning when he begged everyone to stay a w ay from the oas2014 movement and not to attend and called it a bloody revolution! thats the complete opposite of what the protest is about…col Riley the organizer of th movement on the radio this morning begged Glenn to call him and talk about why he was so against it…as far as i no there was no contact made. glenn has totally ignored the movement like. the rest of the lsm. here lately it seems as if glenn is more worried about selljng a book,making a movie,or getting a donation than he is about his country like he once was.but that’s just my 2 cents…but what do i no right :/

  • Coll

    Glenn also showed a brief vid clip of Sheriff Mack and accused the folks at the ranch of using women as ‘human shields’. This was a blatant lie. This was totally taken out of context and a defaming of Mack. I can no longer trust Beck. How do I know what else he is misrepresenting? In addition, he has never attempted to rectify things with the Sheriff that I have seen.

  • Coll

    If we are ‘partners’ with Beck as he states, why is he making millions and the rest of us paying?

    Well it seems to me that he misses us as much as we miss him! Don’t insult us and expect us to not express our feelings – just as he expressed his! We paid to support him and if he doesn’t need us then so be it!

  • Michael

    The Founders did everything they could to resolve the situation in a non-violent manner but when that failed (just as the Glenn’s peace at any price method will) they chose the violent way to actually effect the needed change. Eight years of violence solved the problem, not the years of non-violent negotiation that went on before that. We are not dealing with rational, logical, even handed people, we are dealing with Radical Progressive Statists. Their purpose is to CONTROL and HOLD POWER over the people. They are a cancer that is slowly killing our nation. You cannot treat cancer holistically (like Beck, and you, want to do) and expect to live. You have to cut, burn, and poison the cancer out of the body (nation/society). While you are doing that you might just kill the body and the longer you wait to do it the more likely that is to happen. Violence, whether you and Beck like it or not, has solved more problems in history than peaceful methods. If you, and Beck, are willing to march into the Colosseum to be fed to the lions for the sake of being peaceful at any price, then be my guest. I will not be joining you.

  • Robert North

    I’ll still listen to his radio show, but I won’t subscribe to his network. Why would I give money to someone who spoke out on the side of the BLM against Mr. Bundy, and his supporters? Someone who even tried to undermine infowars, and Alex Jones… Who’s side are you really on Glen?

    I wrote Sheriff Mack regarding that clip that Beck played and he responded within 24 hrs. The clip was totally taken out of context. The women went to the front lines..ON THEIR OWN!..That is why they ended up having a discussion regarding it. AT NO TIME was it even suggested by anyone that the women be used as …as Beck stated…as ‘Human Shields’. That was a BLATANT LIE and because of it I no longer trust Beck, The truth NO LONGER lives here!

    I’ve listening to GB since the 90s. He has always made the following pretty clear to me:

    1. God is real, He matters, and is contextually important to the news we hear and the story we all contribute to.
    2. He is flawed and unashamed to show it (sometimes to a fault)
    2. His work is targeted to inform in an entertaining (non-vulgar) way
    3. His goal is not to take the credit (or have people worship him In any way). In fact it has been interesting to see him elevate others’ careers and dreams along with his own.
    4. He is freedom loving, life affirming, and someone who is willing to hear the other side of a debate
    5. He is not one to advocate violence; but does advocate peaceful activism from a Conservative/Libertarian perspective
    6. He expects his audience to think for themselves, seek original sources, and to seek truth
    7. He is as human as any of us. He has physical, emotional, and financial limitations. Yet he reminds us how much we can each accomplish with a dream, a strong support system, an audacity to believe and hope, a strong work ethic, and a non-fatalistic worldview.
    —–
    I believe GB is being unfairly criticized/condemned
    1. I feel the episodes show that GB gave Bundy more than ample air time to express his personal views.
    2. He stated openly that there was much he agreed with Bundy on himself
    3. The more he heard the more he (GB), and listeners like myself, felt Bundy’s case had some merit but his tactics weakened his position
    4. GB honored the non-violent activism and personal stand that Bundy took
    4. I never heard/read GB tell subscribers who non-violently supported Bundy to unsubscribe and I dare say we never will. In context, GB was visibly concerned that the issue was headed for bloodshed and he could not support that (just like he did not support Occupy or the Springs overseas). Clearly, he could not bear the thought of one of his listeners harming others or getting harmed in a heated exchange of emotion. In that context, not ours, it seems unfair to criticize GB too harshly for his words spoken as a means of promoting/influence peace over violence.

    Read far into this thread. The message received from that GB program over the Bundy – Gov. stand-off was fear of a WACO type confrontation.
    U.S. indignation was running high over the BLM-Bundy stand-off. The same emotions were present at the WACO vs. Fed. stand off involving Janet Reno.
    The impression received from the GB monologue was a sincere effort to cool fire-hot anger and tempers .

  • Steve Politte

    Sorry for my use of that tern, that was inappropriate. But I still don’t think that Glenn thought about the seriousness and the ramifications that would come from his unfortunate statement. I don’t think that he was thinking clearly and I don’t he meant it in a literal way; that he just felt so strongly about his opinion. But what I say or anyone who defends the man, as a mere human being, is not going to make a difference to those people who took offense to what he said. It is not going to bring those people back, they are gone, maybe felt betrayed and unimportant, maybe put down. Those are all just feelings, they are not right nor are they wrong. It is how we react to them that determines a final outcome of a decision. My point is this, that there is not much mention of all the good that Glenn Beck has done for others, for what he has accomplished, because we, as human beings, seem to only react to the negative. One bad judgment out of all of the good that has come about because of his efforts, his money, and that is all wiped away, unimportant, doesn’t count, no longer holds a candle to the one bad thing that he has done. We human beings can often times be so heartless, so uncompassionate, so unforgiving, of basically good people. So, I must assume that in the eyes of so many now, that Glenn Beck is considered a lower and more evil man than our dear corrupt President. God bless this dying country.. Didn’t mean this so much for you Mat, as for others. Nor did I mean to offend anyone. However, I will not be back to this website to engage in conversation again. God bless

    Wow … I am stunned at most of these comments that I am reading here. What is wrong with most of you? You are here … but you’re angry … and you are not going to stay? …You are so offended?

    Please allow me to back up. I first listened to Glenn on CNN. I stopped listening because I was so distraught about what was happening in politics and it was too much to ‘hear’ his constant dire warnings about the economy. I knew he was right, but I didn’t want to believe …. (We should have listened!)

    I never listen to radio, but I did watch Glenn’s show on FNC. … when I was able. Time wasn’t always good and I didn’t have a DVR. Of course, anything he said was picked up somewhere on the internet.

    Glenn became my friend … someone so gut wrenching important to me. I sat there and cried the day he did his show and asked, ‘Do you feel something is terribly wrong?… DEEP IN YOUR GUT, You KNOW something is wrong?? He then said, ‘You are not alone and you are not crazy’. Like I said, I sat there and cried. I was no longer alone.

    I can’t explain that day, but I could sleep that night. It was as if a weight had been lifted.
    Now … do I agree with everything Glenn has said or done? Absolutely not! Do I ‘follow’ his every word. NO! I have even cringed more times than I care to admit at ‘the delivery’ of some of the things he has said …. Oh, and some of his antics! I don’t even watch his show since he left FNC and never have I listened to radio. BUT …. Glenn is my friend and I support him!

    We …. ALL OF US HERE …. would never have found any peace without him bringing us together. Remember 8/28? We were ALL there … together …. even if some of us couldn’t make the physical trip. (I was there!)

    BLM…. that Law is a very bad law … it needs to be changed. The BLM is WRONG, but do you want to play into *their* game?
    They are just ‘stiring that pot’ (more and more these days, it seems!). I did not hear exactly what Glenn said, but I KNOW he cares just as deeply for his country … just as all of us do.

    I may not listen to his shows like I used to but I read … I keep Glenn close. I support him and The Blaze. It makes me sad to read all the criticism ….. no, the ANGER from so many here. Glenn is just a man …. just a man who has made us aware …. has allowed us to do and to change things …. but, mostly, he has been a comfort. Please don’t ever forget that. He is my friend and I know he is yours.

    Lee, people were calling for violence on Facebook, and that’s why Glenn got so upset. They left him some really mean, nasty messages. I didn’t read them, but from the hurt on Glenn’s face,I can imagine they were pretty terrible. You know what a kind person he is. He doesn’t believe violence will solve anything, and gotta say, I agree.. I saw Glenn a time or two on CNN and I watched him a lot on FNC. I’ve been a subscriber since it was GBTV, and am still with him as the network’s now called The Blaze. I love watching Glenn’s radio show with Pat and Stu. It is never dull, and many times he makes me laugh till I can’t stop coughing! Glenn feels like a great friend to me- it probably helps that he’s only three years older than me! I am physically disabled after being run over by a car, and sometimes the pain would be horrendously unbearable, but then, Glenn’s show is on, he manages at just the right time to say something to make me laugh, or quote Scripture to ease my spirit and then I feel better. It saddens me to see all this anger all over the site, because I just don’t understand it. It’s not productive.
    Lee, if I had one wish, it would be to meet Glenn and talk Scripture with him. It might be a bit awkward at first, as he’s LDS and I’m Catholic, but I’d be willing to bet we’d find an awful lot of common ground. I hope I do get to meet him one day. Glenn Beck has been such a positive influence in my life. I’d like to be able to tell him that, too.

    Did anyone ever find out WHO (specifically- a NAME) of the person who ordered a BUNCH of armed men, to go to the Bundy ranch? I’d really like to know how far up the food chain, that order originated. SOMEONE had to have issued that order. They just didn’t all get up that day and thought “Let’s go out to Nevada and cause this guy some grief”.

    I am a woman and I would have stood at the front of the line- with my PINK nightie on, if it came down to that.
    When you are fighting with guerrilla warfare, against a much better- armed force, you use any and every means of winning! Our government may decide to make war on the People, and if so, it might well get ugly, but look at Afghanistan, where a bunch of poorly armed goat herders defeated the Russian army. Creative, unusual and non-traditional means of fighting WILL be necessary, to defeat domestic tyrants.The GOAL….is to WIN.

  • Lee

    Glennfrend, thanks for sharing that. I was not aware of what was said on Facebook. It’s scary enough out there. We don’t need violence, but I can understand the anger in this situation.
    I’m glad that you find Glenn such a positive influence. Glenn surely would be one interesting guy to sit and talk with. I wonder if he ever sits still?
    I was very fortunate to listen to him speak a few years ago near Chicago at TEAcon (Chicago TeaParty). He spoke at the dinner. It was a small venue and although he didn’t mingle (except for those seated at his table), he was just one of us …. with the same concerns, etc. So, that’s as close as I’ll ever get to meeting him. lol …
    He seemed so tired in the video, but I noticed it more last night on O’Reilly’s Factor show. Hope his health is ok. I am well aware of ‘the showman Beck’, but after all these years, I think I know when he is ‘performing’. He looks very tired.

    When Beck first started The Blaze, I was pretty excited. Two hours of Beck a day we were told ( I never missed a single episode as long as he was on Fox) But then it turned out he was only on the show like one day a week, at most… and listening to Pat and whoever else it was that was hosting the show 4 – 5 days a weeks was just vapid and boring as hell.

    Plus he had that Stupid A** comedian who wasn’t funny at all, straining to make adolescent jokes about anyone he could, most of which were either in very poor taste, or disgusting, and in any case, always atrocious and never funny at all. What the hell was the point in that…? An unfunny comedian that we were forced to endure day after day, and Beck never showing up. Yeah, that’s what I signed up for….

    After about 3 weeks I unsubscribed, and I’ve found Beck to be way off base many times in the recent past with his commentaries that seem to be focused on the wrong things.

    Very disappointed since he left Fox and has had free reign… I doubt I’ll ever subscribe again, though I do get his daily newsletter in an attempt to stay informed on what’s going on. .

    No Liberal treats anyone fairly… are you kidding…. open your eye’s and look around. There’s a reason they call them Lying Liberals… cause that’s what they do… they lie, and they attack, and they never get their facts straight…. and you want us to “treat them fairly?… how about we force them into reeducation camps, like they talk about doing to anyone who disagrees with them…? THAT would be fair…. at least they’d get educated and get the damn Marxist crap out of their heads,and maybe start making sense for once…

    Oh, Glenn please stop patting yourself on the back. Anyone (like me) who ignored you and left their money in the market from 2008 until now has more than if they followed you and pulled it out. If you were really led by your “God,” why didn’t you just tell everyone to stay calm and ride it out? No. You decided to help create the turmoil that is ripping out country apart instead. Nice job.

    You are exactly right, Debi. We can’t fight our government with guns–we will die. I have guns, I believe in the second amendment, but I also know that if we try to fight the government with violence all we get is dead. How long would a revolution last in the streets against our military? 10 minutes? We must fight against the intrusion of government using peaceful means. The power of the vote, the power of peaceful protests, the power of non-compliance.

    I don’t agree with Mr.Beck on everything, but he is part of the solution. His passion is genuine. I didn’t agree with him regarding the BLM and Mr. Bundy, but that’s the nature of independent thinkers. We will not always agree. That would make us Drones and Kool Aid drinkers. I took his comments to unsubscribe with a grain of salt….And kept my membership.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t remember the two hours a day. I know his radio show in the a.m is three hours and the afternoon show an hour. Then a couple months ago, he gave Dana the Friday afternoon show. That pissed me off. He took off almost three weeks at Xmas, then a week for spring break. (Sort of following in 0′s vacay habits) But about six months ago, I started really seeing a change in him. I really think the money got to him. Think he’d rather not be there. I canceled my membership a few weeks ago and got a letter today asking me to come back. (I have no idea how many bailed after the Bundy episode but he invited all that didn’t agree with him to cancel). For me it was a culmination of things. He made the comment he hated Politics, wanted to do more culture, movies, etc). Hope it works out. But it won’t be on my dollar. He’s not the person I started listening to on the radio long before 9/11. I do think his ADHD has him bouncing all over. I definitely think he peed in his Cheerios and he’s now paying the price. It will be interesting to see how long he can hold on.

    I listened/watched the day GB said to his audience on radio show about April 15, that if we weren’t in agreement with him re: Bundy, to unfriend on facebook, to cancel our membership, etc. YES, I was watching and was stunned. I also heard his extremely rude and condescending interview with Mr Bundy, while his two side kicks Pat and Stu pile on. I have NEVER seen GB interview anyone that way, no matter if they were atheists, liberals or any walk of life. You must have missed that day. But his archives go back a month and I went back a few days later, because it was so out of character for him. It was almost as if he snapped. There’s also been other incidents in the last year that made me wonder what had caused him to change. I’m sure you know he said he hates politics, as most of us do. And he was going away from that and had plans to do more cultural things and has plans for making movies. So I have followed him since before 9/11 and most people didn’t know him. I’m sure you are aware of all the above, but in case you haven’t you might find it on youtube. I got a letter today asking me to reinstate my membership. I watched GB for the history, the politics, etc. I am not interested in cultural things and movies enough to pay for a membership since that’s the direction he’s going. This country is turning upside down and I am more concerned about that than seeing if GB can become the next Walt Disney or Ghandi. That’s not what I signed up for.
    Also, don’t be worried about his finances…..he’s set for live with homes in Texas and a ranch out of state. He’s talked often how he’s planned and is very prepared.

  • Anonymous

    Those numbers on Forbes were almost a year ago. I read it’s at least $100 Million a year, (but what’s another $10 million a year?) not including all his homes, assets. He’s always been been very honest with his audience that he is well prepared if anything happens, buying Gold, etc. in his investments. So for those that think GB is broke, as he inferred in the above video, you might be a little naive. Also it’s $120 a year for the membership. But, for those that want to donate to him, go ahead.

    Maybe he wasn’t counting on his loyal membership to drop off. But the fact that he asked people to cancel their memberships, that weren’t in agreement with him regarding Bundy, they were probably already going forward with all the new projects, it was too late. If he could have just held his tongue, he may not be asking for money. But Glenn is a dreamer and wants to be the next Walt Disney and hates politics, so hopefully it will all work out.

    I was watching GB that Monday morning on his radio show and was very surprised at what he said. I have a feeling many did not actually hear him, so they don’t believe he would do such a thing. It can probably be found on Youtube, since his archives only go back a month. It was uncalled for, unless he meant it;). He certainly hasn’t addressed it. I also got really annoyed at his ripping on Mitt Romney around the same time about a personal matter that he accused Romney of. Turned out GB was wrong. It was though he was becoming unhinged all at once lashing out. Maybe he needs to be on meds as he is ADHD, as he has talked about.

    And, GB on the morning he interviewed Bundy, said he himself was a rancher also. And knew how ranching works. I frankly don’t know how GB does two shows most days, does speaking engagements, writes books AND does ranching. Because ranching is a 7 day a week job. No wonder he’s so beat down. Unbelievable.

  • Shawn Cameron

    What exactly do you take issue with? If it is Glenn simply wanting to distance himself from those calling for violence and not those who disagreed with him. I think we’ve hashed that issue out and I have concurred with Duddioman on that.

    If you are simply denying that there were people here and on Beck’s FB page calling for violence, I invite you to go back and read the comments. Unless you one of those that simply refuse to see, if that’s the case then there is nothing more to discuss.

    The fact is it’s not just the Bundy issue. I have seen people here and on the FB page call for the deaths of police, social service workers and so on. Now these people may be in the minority, but they are a very vocal minority. You can choose to ignore them if you wish, But I myself will speak out against them every chance I get. Because in my opinion to condemn the radicals of the left, while condoning (or ignoring) those here simply because they seem to be “on our side” is hypocritical.

    To quote Glenn Beck, The enemy of your enemy IS NOT your friend.

    So, please tell us how violence solved the Bundy problem. Had the Bundy supporters, we the people, showed up praying on their knees to ask the BLM to please leave, what do you propose would have happened? The BLM were acting like real goons to enforce CONTOL, probably hoping that any resistance would have been by scared people prayng for a peaceful settlement. Were there ANY shots fired? The only casualties were a bunch of innocent, unarmed cattle! Now we are waiting for the next step of the progresive agenda.

  • Chris O’Brien

    I didn’t agree with Glenn’s stance on Bundy either but then do “friends” always have to agree on things? I agree that, in my opinion, Glenn was on the wrong side of this particular issue and was a little harsh in telling those who disagreed to cancel their subscription. However, as a loyal fan and listener it will take more than one misunderstanding with a friend before I break ties. I love Glenn’s courage and drive to always do and say the right thing or give us his opinion. Will we always agree with him probably not. I don’t always want him to say what I want to hear. I want him to be truthful, honest and comfortable to say what he thinks and feels whether we like it or not. Isn’t this what an open and honest relationship is about? I don’t want Glenn to feel he has to tip toe around what he feels he must or needs to say. I don’t want to censor his thoughts or feelings. Let’s have honest debate and if we can’t agree on a particular issue then let’s just agree to disagree. The long and the short of it is there is more about Glenn that I love then dislike. Right now he is the brightest beacon for truth and I’m not going to let one misunderstanding put out the light. IMHO :)

    Glenn’s selective use of parts of videos to make his case is nothing new. He prides himself and his staff for doing in-depth research on various subjects, but plagiaries many articles. He’s condemned people based on his research, quite vehemently, only to have things blow up in his face. The best source of research on subjects are the witnesses from the source itself, just like those women who stoof up front to the BLM.

    I think the fires were smoldering in the background. Perhaps it was to divert attention off another issue. But there are several states that have been planning for some kind of conference to discuss steps states could take to take back control of their lands:

    The Bundy case certainly brought to public attention the issues surrounding land and who really controls them. It all fits in nicely with Agenda 21 and Land for Collateral on our debt. Even Jefferson warned we may end up homeless on the land our Founders fought for.

    Nolikeo, I am quite sure that Glenn Beck has seen to the financial needs of his family. … responsibility. I didn’t hear him say that he ‘has nothing’.
    But …. The Blaze didn’t build it’s self. That took lots and lots of money and yes, we helped ‘build that’. I believe he said that more than once? Are so many angry because they didn’t feel they got their money’s worth? I don’t understand.
    Why would you even ask if I support him financially? I take offense at that. There are many ways to ‘support’ someone.
    I will answer you, tho. I have very little myself, but I do subscribe and pay the yearly fee for The Blaze even though I don’t take time to watch. I have since the day it began. I have made a few very small donations to some of his causes…. those that benefit all of us.
    Now, does that make you feel better?

    Perhaps the most perceptive post of the entire thread. Yes, it might be time for Glenn Beck to stand down for a time and let others handle things. Better retirement (or a long hiatus) than sticking around and becoming a total parody of oneself like Rush Limbaugh. Beck had a good run, better than most, but now it appears to be coming to an end. The only thing is will he have enough wisdom to recognize this.

  • Anonymous

    What added fuel to the fire, IMO, was that within days of his hissy fit, he was gushing over some self-described liberal over ONE pet issue of his. His gasping and “oh my God’s” while listening to Bundy’s comments were theatrical and sophomoric. It’s about perspective, and I’m wondering of Glenn really doesn’t understand that or if he is, as many seem to suspect, pandering to a different crowd now. In addition, the MLK references have gone from tedious to annoying, as do his reminders of the people he has on his staff who, I’m willing to bet, have no respect AT ALL for Glenn’s audience. And do you think the girl in the hijab in the intro wasn’t chosen to be in it precisely because of the hijab? Please. It’s patronizing.

He was also afraid someone may be injured or killed needlessly,when there are other ways to battle an over reaching government . As far as Glen Beck sitting down to talk with liberals..I understand the value Glen holds for people..has interest in their thoughts and reasoning.
    and is also able to like or respect people different ideologies he doesnt agree with. He is christian, thats how we’re taught to be. He admits to being flawed, and sees his life as a mission, and a growing experience. I for one respect him, his honesty & integrity. I don’t understand why, If he changes his mind, view, opinion, or stand on an issue because of added information has come to light, people call him a liar, or slander his charachter in any number of ways.

    Wow…..fair weathers. One rant and you all run like a bunch of cockroaches. The fact that you are that “hurt” by someone saying “don’t be my friend” is a bit ludicrous! Let’s be fair, he’s been saying for quit a while that the correct response and approach is a peaceful one, most certainly not a militant one! Of course most of the people that showed up at the Bundy thing were all pissed off and escalated a situation, and quite honestly did so before showing up intentionally to provoke the fed to be stupid and it backfired…big time!!! Do you really think you are going to get anywhere by shooting a fed in the head? I mean come on people it’s not the time nor the place to be taking up arms against anyone. I’m just as mad as you, believe me, but taking a militant approach is exactly what pushes those on the fence away! You have to think with your heads about what will beat them at their own game! It is possible! Instead of wasting your time on here being all “offended” (which is a choice by the way) at losing a “friend” you’ve never met and most likely won’t, why don’t you work on your real relationships? Get it together people and remember who the real enemy is. Don’t look like a bunch of uneducated baboons!

    Beck usually and company does excellent research. Bundy should have stayed in State courts, and he himself has over looked and very important fact.
    Grazing the open range was in fact an incentive to settle the land. The homestead act of 1862 was for 160 acres, As the settlers moved west the land became less desirable,the act was amended to allow for 320 acres.In 1916 The homestead act as again amended with the Stock grazing act and allowed for 640 acres. This time however the govt retained the mineral rights but allowed grazing on open range. This is similar to the railroads being given every other section for a township on the north and south of the rail line to build the transcontinental line, it was their property. The right to graze open range for settling 640 acres should be viewed as an equal property right. To do otherwise would leave a “trail of Tears”. Our Native Americans could have foretold the outcome.

The right to graze open range for settling 640 acres should be viewed as an equal property right. To do otherwise would leave a “trail of Tears”. Our Native Americans could have foretold the outcome.

    I never hear him once mention that he even cares that the gold he was hawking at over $2000 an once wiped out a lot of elderly people who bought that con job.

  • Jill

    I believe his point was that he stood with those who peaceably protested and used the tools available, via legislation and advocacy, to effect systemic change rather than those who vociferously argued for an armed revolution. Though the numbers of individuals were minute, they were frightening and appeared to salivate at the notion of egging on a violent confrontation where no one would win and everyone would lose. Personally, I agree.

  • Jill

    That is completely untrue, Winnie. Many states have successfully taken back their land from federal control, using the court system and existing legislation. Wouldn’t that be a better tactic to advocate for rather than a conflict in which a small minority had the power to turn broad public opinion against the cause?

  • Jill

    If you heard that, then I would submit you didn’t listen all that carefully. If anything, the cast of the 6pm provided more depth than any of the alphabet channels ever cared to.

  • Jill

    A) No, he said if you support armed revolt over peaceable dissent then you likely would not enjoy the show and should seek other venues.
    B) Why would you continue to visit his personal website if the misinterpretation of his words caused you such angst?

  • Jill

    His ‘rant’, as you’ve so emotionally put it, preceded the NYT story by a week.

  • Jill

    You do understand that he did no such thing, no? Perhaps a free trial would be the best place to start. They provided excellent context and history of the Bundy issue. At no point did they applaud or support the BLM and the federal ownership of state land.

    Good point. Many of them, unfortunately, are still following this scammer. He reported “news” about the country going into the toilet, advised his listeners to invest in gold, AND THEN STARTED SELLING GOLD. Yet people are still lining up for his drivel. Sigh.

    Glenn is very much the same type of guy as Jim Baker of the PTL club was. He’s just sucking up their money in a different way.

  • Joanne DiCarlo

    I don’t support an armed revolt. I do feel if those supporters of Bundy weren’t there, it would have been a very different outcome. His words were not misinterpreted. I was listening to the show the morning he made them. Beck said a little more than just “you likely would not enjoy the show and should seek other venues.” He did say he didn’t want anyone’s support who stood with Bundy…to unfriend him as you were no friend of his….blah, blah, blah. He was very clear on that. I don’t continue to visit his personal website. I received an email from Beck on this topic. This article came up when I clicked on it and I started reading the comments. His words did not cause me any angst…don’t know why you think they would. I took his advice…I have other venues…he is/was not my only source of information. Now you sound like all the kool aid drinkers who support Obama and think he can do no wrong.

  • Richard Williams

    Glenn: I’ve been a Blaze subscriber for a couple years now, though I haven’t watched much – not because I don’t think you’re producing a good product, but simply because I’m not a big TV watcher anyway. I subscribe for mainly one reason – to SUPPORT WHAT YOU ARE DOING. I do listen to your radio program every day. You’re doing a great job. I support your effort to influence the culture through ALL aspects of media, i.e., radio, TV, internet, print, movies, etc. You are simply experiencing growing pains. Hang in there, we’re behind you.

I was one of those advocating taking up arms against our government… but you are a calming influence… and I now agree with you that we have to do this RIGHT! We can’t just go out and destroy. We must rebuild from the roots of our society. You call it renovation, and that’s exactly what we ALL need to do within ourselves. We must not destroy. We must rebuild from the foundation up. You have my undying support!

    He is not well, Lee. He’s mentioned on the show that he’s been feeling ill, and he went to see a specialist, who told him his body’s been attacking him, I THINK. Not 100% on the details, but he had to be put on a very restricted diet, and I do mean VERY. It’s been hard on him. I don’t know if this diet is a permanent thing or not; I hope not! I pray for him frequently to get better. We need him around; he’s the only person around who will really tell us the truth. I know he and O’Reilly are friends, but I’m not so sure I trust Bill any more. Yes, I know his show is supposed to be “fair and balanced” but I’m not so sure it is any more. He criticizes the politicians and their Ivy League educations, yet at the same time he touts the fact that he got his degree at Harvard, so he is one of the “elite.” Glenn said he never finished college, but he pulled himself up by his own bootstraps and look where he is now! The head of his own network! Honestly, I think O’Reilly is a hypocrite. Glenn is more genuine. Heck, we just need Glenn around, period. He’s like everybody’s best friend. Please pray for his recovery to better health, Lee.

  • Joshua LeBlanc

    Glenn I love you has a human being. I think your doing great work. All I ask of you is to give your fellow man FAIR treatment. I know you disagree with a Mr Alex Jones and that’s ok. But to slander him and place hate radio messages about him seem unfair. I follow both of you and I know the truth SO WHAT IS THE DEAL?

  • Glennfriend67

    EXACTLY, Debi! And thank you for stating it like it is. That is what I heard Glenn say, too. The problem today is, I fear a great deal of our country is in decline, and much like ancient Rome, the citizens have become so bored that the only way they can be amused is with bloodsport. This sort of depravity is what brought the Roman Empire down; it will bring America down, too. There are days when I get up and wonder, am I going to make it to the next day? I live in upstate NY, so actually, that’s a pretty valid question. I wonder, is this the day someone comes and drags me off because I’m Conservative? Because I’m devout to my faith? Because I won’t toe their fascist line and spout their fascist sayings? Will I have enough courage to stand up for myself? I don’t know, but I pray that I will. I know I won’t resort to violence. Did it help Rosa Parks? MLK? Did it help Christ? I can get angry if it’s a righteous anger, but too many people have been getting angry because Glenn isn’t quite going along with what THEY want. That’s not righteous anger. That is the anger that is a deadly sin. It will bring them nothing but ruination and despair. Violence is never the answer.

    You lost in the public relations part of the event however,
    you did open the door to using what you have accomplished to start moving us back to the limits our Founding Fathers placed on our future republican form of government. Start pushing your politicians at the national levels to limit their spending and their involvement in our lives by not spending a dime on any
    unconstitutional agency, department, program or sending our tax dollars to the UN and other foreign governments. Tell your local politicians at the city/town, county and state to do not take a dime from the federal government (the drug cartel pushing their favorite drug…….our money) on anything that is not
    listed in our Constitution Article I, Section 8, Clauses 1-18.

    I agree with you however, not everything from
    Alex do I agree with either. If those that believe in our God, our Constitution
    and conservative limited government do not form a bond and fight our enemy
    together, we will become a global Caliphate, an Ummah ruled by Shariah/Islamic law! Here is how we are losing it. The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated our government years ago and they (president, congressional
    representatives, staffers, military and civilian employees) have never been subjected to background investigations using 127-page OPM SF 86, Questionnaire for National Security. You can never fix the challenge until we get rid of the Marxists, communists and Islamists in our government.

    I totally agree with you! Glenn is attacking our enemy at the root without even naming it. We know one of our enemies as political correctness. The original term the Marxists used when they put it together in Frankfurt, Germany in 1923, was called Cultural Marxism. However, they knew the term would not
    resonate so they changed it. Start researching the term, begin with the video
    on YouTube called “CULTURAL MARXISM: The Corruption of America.”

The violence that followed him caused me to believe he instigated it all however, it did not take me long to figure out who was right and who was wrong. The violence was blaring! I remember going to Atlanta on a National Guard bus in 1962 for summer training and I remember the Colored Only and Whites Only signs at drinking fountains and bathrooms. How could anyone forget the signs and the violence so, what did it bring us? Nothing! Glenn, keep your faith my friend, you are winning hearts and minds.

    Our enemy made it quite clear to us when we found their written plan to destroy us and make us a Shariah/Islamic nation however, not a single hearing in either the House nor the Senate, our media (INCLUDING FAUX) has ignored it!

I have watched this man from the CNN days when I had to kick my TV to force it to the Clinton News Network (CNN). I knew then he was destined for bigger and better things. I watched him grow on FAUX and knew the first time he told us he hired additional staff they he was leaving however, where? He will change this nation and he will change the world but first he must change our culture. In order to do that he must start identifying all of our enemies including but not limited to Cultural Marxism i.e. political correctness and the constant pandering our politicians must make in order to gain their votes and campaign contributions.

    So to answer your question, yes I’ve heard of leftist infiltrators, I’ve heard of right wing infiltrators and I’ve heard of the Loch Ness Monster too. Now ask me what all three of those things have in common.

    Conspiracy theories may be fun (and definitely lucrative, Beck is proof of that), but I’ve always found that the straight forward common sense answers are usually the right ones. In this case that answer is there are plenty of loons on both the right and the left, especially the left.

I told them it was an important day because he probably would be talking about Matt Bevin who would be in a primary on Tuesday. All 500 just called me and asked “Where is Glenn Beck?”. Hmmmm, I said I don’t know ….Ah… “Off”. So I told them to be sure to watch his afternoon TV Show ( Really ). He would most certainly be on there talking about his book. You get the idea.

    Glenn Beck is a moron who apparently suffers from a long history of brain damage — and has inflicted it on others. How anybody could take the gasbag buffoon seriously is beyond my comprehension. But it’s fun to see him alienate his own audience.

  • Shawn Cameron

    Well I’m sure he’s not the first person to say it, but he has said it on numerous occasions.

    He’s making me jealous with that announcement. I would love to put my skills and efforts toward refurbishing that area, at any price. For visions worth getting behind, Glenn’s are on the the very short end. I hope I can have a hand in it in September.

    I was among the first to sign on to GBTV. I left before the Bundy Incident. I got frustrated with the poor sound quality. Programs like For the Record was so music masked and the voice portion of the audio was unintelligible. The Blaze dot com had so may pop ups, pop unders and other cache plugging junk that it would hang my computer. I am not going to buy a new computer to handle all the junk ads. The nail in the coffin is the monologues got to be uninspiring. Glenn should take a cue from the musical production The Music Man. At least that character told the town they had a problem, then he told them how to fix it. America is too far gone to be fixed by elections.

    Wow, DogDay. I hope you don’t have a wife or kids – you would offer them up to a tyrannical government in a second. I hope that I would fight to death for my family’s freedoms. I pray that I would. I would never want my wife and kids to be slaves.

    First of all, I AM the wife! If the government attacked my family, I would fight to the death, but the government didn’t attack Bundy (don’t get me wrong–I believe the government is completely out of control and is blatantly disregarding the constitution). If the government suddenly took to the streets, started rounding us up to go to death camps, yes, I would fight to the death. But that’s not what happened, so let’s not get caught up in a dangerous frenzy. But I ask you to look at what just happened in Kentucky–the people voted in Mitch McConnell AGAIN! Why?? The majority of the people must think everything is just fine because they certainly aren’t voting to change the status quo. There’s the problem. I pray we wake up before it’s too late.

    Another Jim Bakker/Jimmy Swaggart/Sid Roth/Benny Hinn type? “Here’s some emotional crap, now make yourself feel better by buying my stuff”. Sad. I thought it was a different sort of show than that.

    Really? Peaceful and non-militant? Unarmed protestors get beat up and pepper sprayed by militarized police. Armed protestors got the militarized feds to back down. Seems violence or the possibility thereof is the ONLY thing that works, now.

    Ok, here I go again!

    I watch conservative news and I follow conservative blogs and I really enjoy and appreciate their take on current events. Some of them say things that get me excited and have me yelling “YEAH!” at the T.V. They condemn the President for Benghazi and The Bundy Ranch situation, the IRS, NSA, Fast and furious, amnesty, and the VA scandal. I love to hear them talk about something getting done. BUT they still do not talk about the fact that Obama’s birth certificate has been PROVEN to be a fake, and not about Extortion 17; this was the event that killed the guys who supposedly killed Ben Ladin.

    The talking heads and pundits all talk and talk about how something should be done. They give the American people a sliver of hope that if someone, ANYONE, would stand up to this corrupt government then things would change. They give us hope that we can recover from the dire situation our country is in. that is UNTIL someone actually does something. Then we hear crickets! CRICKETS!!!!! The only response conservatives get is the lambasting by the lunatic left. They vilify and tell so many lies to make the conservative leaders look bad. So, will the right wing media run to their defense? No, crickets!

    When Americans go to Washington DC to demand the impeachment of the sitting president, I would think it would be front page news, but no we hear about the same stories on every show that comes on or cushy feel good stories that don’t mean anything. Of course right now we have the VA scandal which is horrible and deserves attention, BUT we have had scandal after scandal, after scandal, with this President and when folks, average citizens, get so fed up they take time to go to Washington to try and do something about it, no one seems to care. I think they all just want to make news and get paid without actually doing anything about it! If people like Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and all the rest of these people really cared as they say they do, they would be marching with the patriots in DC right now to impeach this corrupt usurper! But no, it gives them more to talk about and more attention to keep complaining about the corruption than to actually DO anything about it! Either that or they are working with the liberal left to appear to be an opponent when they really are in it for the ratings!

    These people playing media with the stories that deeply affect the lives of the average American need to wake up. One day things are going to get ugly again and the next standoff with an alphabet agency of the federal government just might start something no one wants! I listen to the patriots, the Oath keepers, the Tea Party, Overpasses, the 3%er’s, and many other patriotic groups! I can tell you America is sitting on a powder keg and ignoring the peaceful efforts of some patriots in Dc will only incite more rage and will bring the flame dangerously closer to the fuse.

    Does anyone really realize that America is under as much if not more duress than when the founding fathers started this great nation? The “powers that be” may have controlled the media and the education given to our children, played around with our social issues and corrupted the arts, and dominated the politics, but this only delays the inevitable. The pressures on the average citizen are so intense that it demands that, one day, things will explode.

    It is my wish that the talking heads and pundits would put their money where their mouth is and actually report things that matter to the average citizen. What someone said about Hillary’s health is not a story we really care about. Neither is most of the crap coming from our televisions these days. No wonder so many people play video games and watch movies instead of the news! So when the proverbial crap hits the fan, remember, I that I warned you. I wish I could say that you will be able to laugh in my face and say “I told you so” to me, but I seriously doubt that will be the end result. Until then I will be sitting at home hoping for some glimmer of hope that I am wrong, wondering if my writing this piece will put me on a watch list. I assure you I am no threat to anyone, I am just an opinionated, single mom who sees this country falling apart right under her eyes and no one, NO ONE but the average citizen seems to genuinely care! God help us all!

    ( To touch on Glenn Beck great lead in ) Today we live in a upside down world where people believe things have been create to be to love and to have value and people creative to be use with no value and their quality of life be discarded at a whim !!! We may not be able to change the world ,But we can change ourselves to how the world should be where people were create to be love and to be value and their quality of life should be a treasure and things were create to be use and discarded and have no true value ! Maybe if enough people change themselves we can reverse this evil trend where people believe things are to be love and people are create to be use !! When people love things and don’t stand up for each other and use people and don’t love them they put themselves up to be at the mercy of the control freaks and they become expendable cogs at the whim the collective of callous progressives royal elites power hungry control freaks !!!!!! It time to pull ourselves away some from the progressive provide drugs that are all consuming cell phones,internet,TV ,sports,MTV , music ,government freebees ,THINGS etc. To be very easy to miss use to consume most of our thinking process !!! To numb our thinking making it easy for them to hook us to love the wrong things where they can control our lives without a ground swell of thinking people to say NO Thanks for listening 7tom7

    Glenn, thank you, for what you have done and what you will do……I don’t know what “people” expect? What you and The Blaze have accomplished in the past few years is amazing…..I trust you, I trust your staff…..You have my support.

    The day he interviewed Bundy on his radio show, which was very condescending and so unlike him, he mentioned to Bundy that he was a rancher, also;). Actually, he goes there a couple times a year, did a Christmas special there. But a rancher he is not. Ranchers work seven (7) days a week.

    All this useless talk of revolution is STUPID, when you consider that Kentucky had the chance to finally throw Mitch McConnell out of office. What happened? 10% of registered voters bothered to get out of bed. The American people can’t even be bothered to vote, and some of you are spouting revolution? Give me a break. And you Kentuckians out there that didn’t vote–shame on you!!! We can’t fight with weapons, we have to use our brains, and from what I’m seeing–we stink.

    He acting like a teenager….If you don’t like what I say, unfriend me, and I’ll unfriend you…

    Because I don’t want anyone who doesn’t agree with me talking or involved with me..

    Sounds like a progressive…

    Glenn, wasn’t you who repeated the quote from Ben Franklin, “We stand together,or we will surely hang separately”… Now we got a new line from you, Beck…We submit together, or I let you hang separately..

    By the way you are not MLK… he would have never submitted just to keep alive or from jail..

    Glenn has conformed remember the fema camp story the I have such big news it will bring down the entire power structure of the gov story that never seen the light of day and on and on. He has backed down on many stories that are dangerous to report on all the while telling us to stand when its not easy to do so. The bundy ranch was the final nail for me. The story should’ve been about the majority that didn’t want violence Harry Reid and the Chinese connection. The feds were ready to shoot Americans over a turtle ya I don’t think so. My wife and I have been with Glenn from the beginning boy do I feel like a sucker now and can no longer trust Glenn. My wife wants to give him more time to grow a set again hope he dose but doubt it. I have been very loyal to Glenn over the years and feel like a good friend has betrayed me.
