So it has been a little since I have tuned into batshit crazy radio
 
At lunch today and tuned into Glenn Beck. The last time I listened to his show he was carrying on about living how The Lord wishes and treating each other will love and respect. He took several shots at the left pointing out how mean they were and vowing to pray for certain people from the left who had lost their way and are not decent to people from the right. Today he was proudly claiming he had a bidder willing to pay $13,000 for Obama in his urine...I kid you not :spock: he calls it Obama in pee pee. He claims he is selling an image of the president in a jar of his pee. I have no idea if it is a hoax or not. I do find it lacking in the decent department. I have never hid my dislike for this president and have little respect for the man. I do find it childish and unacceptable to sell an image of a current or former president of the United States. WWD what would Joseph Smith do :rolleyes:

To not have the word silly in any sentence discussing Glen Beck is... well.. silly.

The fact he is taken seriously by many in this country is nothing short of scary~

Hey, at least he's an American peein' instead of a European.

OK, not as funny as it sounded in my head the first time. But good luck to gadflys like Beck for trying to keep the Obot's feet to the fire. God knows the Main Stream Media isn't doing that job. And the job needs doin'.

I didn't listen to it, but he was probably playing off a piece of provocative art called Piss Christ: a picture of Jesus on the cross framed in the artist's urine.

I listen to batshit crazy radio all the time, mostly conservative radio, since nobody gives a shit about liberal radio.

I think Beck is a lot of fun to listen to. Talk radio is generally horrible for humor, and some host's attempts at it are too hamhanded, but Beck will honestly get me chuckling from time to time.

He is, of course, a total bullshit artist with the sensibilities of a child as RNR rightly points out (he was a morning shockjock deejay before he went political). His political arguments aren't the conservative hackjobs of other radio hosts, they literally make no sense at all. They are often contradictory and often times involve him just laughing rather than substantively addressing anything he happens to disagree with.

But he's listenable. I think he's damn funny, and he goes the extra length to make his program more than just a program; the 9/12 rallies were inspiring, and he's done a couple one-man performances that are really about faith and religion than it is about politics. I'm looking forward to seeing if his rightwing TV channel "The Blaze" can take off.

But yeah, he's a total charlatan. At least he's an entertaining one.

Dave Lane 12-03-2012 07:49 PM

From time to time I think, I bet Beck doesn't even believe any of this absurd crap and is just a sock puppet or doing it for the lulz (and $)

Direckshun 12-03-2012 08:12 PM

He was a sock puppet for a while on Fox News until he flew into the weeds and off script.

Rightwing blowhards denounced him regularly in his last days on the Fox News radar. Now they ignore his existence.

So with no Fox News to keep him on script, Beck just spews bullshit he knows isn't true because it's good money to do so. He's even created his own rightwing TV network ("The Blaze") which is driven by basically nothing other than his own personality, because the Fox News people won't even talk to him anymore.

Time will tell if he's successful. He's talented enough of a charlatan with a diehard base.

Beck is neither informative nor entertaining, plenty of underground radio that is really good. Alex Jones is 10x more believable than GB and I don't even listen to him much anymore.

It referred back to Piss Christ and was started in response to the 'Obama on the crucifix' painting in the news and discussed in another thread here.

Hal Turner used to put on a good show.

I remember reading about some idiot doing the Christ thing. It says a lot about Beck to lower himself to the level of some shitbag claiming pissing on an image of Jesus is art. Also the right wonders how a buffoon like Obama gets re-elected after total failure. It may have something to do with everyone of them giving interviews to this clown instead of dismissing him as the shameless charlatan he is~

You get that he didn't actually make the 'art' he's pretending to auction off.

Only listened to 15 minutes or so on the way to class Monday, but I'm pretty sure it's all a bit.
