#8 Classic Beck on GBTV
Glenn may have started up a brand new venue for his program in GBTV, but that hasn't slowed him down. Classic Beck moments that the audience had come to know and love are still a staple of the program.
For example, Glenn's classic rant against political correctness after Obama's speech emulating the original progressive Teddy Roosevelt was prototypical Glenn Beck at his finest. Smashing participation trophies, slicing up token last place ribbons were just part of Glenn's destruction of what he called Obama's call to make America 'mediocre' again. Watch Glenn in top form (except when he tried to get up off the ground -- looked a little painful)
There's not much that can set Glenn off these days quite like the President embracing progressivism can. One thing that does consistently do the trick: the mainstream media. The only thing worse than Obama's apparent angst toward America is the media ignoring and/or excusing it. Glenn was in rare form (even for him) recently when he created an analogy using raw dead fish to represent the state of the media. If you can take watching Glenn gut Larry the fish -- including gauging his eyes out - watch it HERE.
The classic interviews haven't stopped either, and Glenn's rounds with Hank Williams Jr. were no exception. Glenn was in Nashville for the Country Music Awards and managed to score interviews with Williams, Jr while he was embroiled in a 'out of context' controversy. While most steered clear of Hank, Glenn had him on to explain what he meant by his comments and if he really thought Obama was equal to Hitler. How'd he do? Find out HERE.
