Glenn Beck. Why the hate?

Ok so we hear all the lefties, liberals, progressives, dems, and even some self proclaimed conservatives demonize him and I have to ask why? It is like they’re scared to death of this guy. The guy doesn’t report the news; he does a 60 minute commentary everyday that draws roughly 2-3 million viewers with each episode. I admit the guy is a little too theatrical for my taste but I have heard nothing that he says that in my mind should or would set a true red blooded American off. He suggests that we confront the perils of these days with faith, hope, and charity. I have to take him at his word when he talks of his love for God, family and country because he speaks of them often.
So what has he said that that you find so horrible?
And finally, why is he the only person talking about much of this stuff?

I have a problem hating someone I can't take seriously. Based on what little I've seen of him, Glenn Beck seems to fit into this category.

Do you wish you would've taken him seriously when he had the audaciousness to suggest gold at $600 bucks an ounce?

I guess?

I'm not quite sure what your point here is, but it was pretty apparent to me after a few minutes of watching that Beck is a clown. He might make a cognizent point occasionally, but he's still a clown.

But by all means please don't my opinion of him stop you from trusting his financial advice.

Oh I don't think that I would do something like that I don't even know you.

Do you remember during those brief few minutes that you did watch him what he could have said for you to determine that he is a clown?

I really am curious were this comes from.

I bet you watch his show and listen to him on the radio to make sure you got those quotes in proper context--or that they're even accurate.

People are almost as deranged over Glenn Beck as they are for Sarah Palin.

So true. I have not heard most of these quotes, but I am gonna take an educated guess that every one of those quotes is out of context. If you don't watch his show or listen to his program, you probably don't get the fact that he makes fun of himself and others quite a bit. They act out stuff making fun of others in the media and they play it to the tilt. So I could see how they may think he means some of that stuff.

I couldn't agree with this more, and pretty much why I asked the question. I never considered that I might get answers regarding statements that have been taken out of context or just plain fabricated by the poster.

Maybe he is referring to the former dj's own words that he used to describe himself.

Mr. Beck says he believes every word he says on his TV show, and the radio show that he still hosts from 9 a.m. to noon each weekday. [...]
At the same time, though, he says he is an entertainer. “I’m a rodeo clown,” he said in an interview, adding with a coy smile, “It takes great skill.” [...]
He added later: “I say on the air all time, ‘if you take what I say as gospel, you’re an idiot.’

Because the MSM and/or libs and progressives told him so?

I found this amusing.

Now I understand this and lay off listening for the same reason.

but I do think much of what he says has merrit which makes it more depressing.
