Exposing Glenn Beck as a Dangerous Fraud

So here goes. Beginning with this post, I intend to expose Glenn Beck as a fraud. A dangerous faker who deliberately manipulates his audience by appealing to their basest instincts. As a man who only embraces conservatism and the tea party movement as a means to furthering his significant personal wealth and career as a successful TV goon.

My theory is as follows. Glenn Beck is engaged in a carefully orchestrated performance that, if taken to its logical end, can only end up in tragedy -- a tragedy, not in the name of some great political or social or religious cause, as too many of his viewers might believe, but rather in the name of pure careerism and greed. A tragedy in the name of Glenn Beck's personal drive for fame and fortune, not to mention the similar motivations of Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch.
I don't see him any more of a fraud, then most of our Politciains, who all seem to have their own agendas. Democrat or Republician they all in some way, try to get us to believe what they want us to believe. Show me a politician who does not wear greed on his or her name.

You mean like the ACORN sting videos that were edited to deceive the public?

Glenn Beck
Unfortunately there are many idiots following him and don't get it. He is laughing all the way to the bank and not a bad payday I might add.

I love it. The more the left wingers attack Beck, the higher his numbers grow. He is now on the cover of Forbes. Keep at it silly rabbits (or would that be sheep)

So here goes.... Blah, blah, blah.... Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

That's it?
That's all you got??
Some freakazoid leftist on the Commie Huffington Rag?

You are going to have to try harder...
Nowhere in this article did I see an attack on Glenn's "message" the only thing this A##hole is capable of is mounting a "personal attack" on Beck!

How typically leftist!
Attack the "messenger" when you don't like the "message"!
Why am I NOT surprised?!
ROFLMFAO
