I Warned You About Glenn Beck (& Prince Al-Waleed & FOX News)

By Debbie Schlussel

For almost a year, I’ve been warning you about the right’s new false TV messiah, drama queen Glenn Beck.  And I warned you for several years about how FOX News toes the Islamic line, per its second largest investor and Rupert Murdoch crony, Saudi billionaire Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal, which is why I call it PAWNN–the Prince Al-Waleed News Network.

Glenn Beckmessiah Calls Geert Wilders a “Fascist”

I warned you about Beck’s gushing slobber over the Saudi’s/Syria’s/Hezbollah’s/the PLO’s favorite Congressman, Darrell Issa a/k/a Jihad Darrell.  And, then, I warned you about it a second time, when he called Issa “principled.” And I told you how this ignoramus, Beck–who like a monkey, parrots whatever his producers tell him–repeatedly features what he claims are “moderate” Muslims on his show, when those “moderates” are, in fact, extremist Muslims.

I warned you about how Beck openly endorses global warming junk science and green movement socialism, how he gushes over smug lefty George Clooney, and how he matches his employees’ contribution to left-wing charities.  And don’t forget his crazy statement that Scott Brown’s career will end with a dead intern.

So, I’m not sure why, yesterday, so many readers were shocked–shocked!–when Beck called Dutch politician Geert Wilders, the most well-known and effective fighter against the Islamic takeover of Europe, a “fascist.”  I got a ton of e-mails about it.  Some readers said, “you warned us about Beck,” but others were surprised and finally awoke from their slumber.  Better late than never.  Moreover, Beck endorsed the UK ban on Wilders entering the country.  Wilders, today.  Beck, tomorrow.  There are many who would incorrectly group the moron Beck with the much wiser Wilders and ban them both if they could.  So much for Beck’s claim to be a libertarian and support free speech.

For the record, I like Wilders, think he’s very courageous, and support his efforts.  However, I haven’t written much about him because I am troubled by some problems that he could easily address if he wanted to:

First, some of his supporters, a very small percentage of whom are neo-Nazis and fascists.  I know Wilders doesn’t support or agree with this, but I’m troubled that he hasn’t spoken more loudly against them and weeded them out of his group of supporters.  I’ve gotten some of their e-mails, and a number of us politically conservative Jews, yesterday, had to unfriend one of his European supporters on Facebook, when she posted as her icon, a cartoon of her in an SS uniform.  (She said it was sexy and kinky.   Um, tell that to most of my family on both sides who didn’t quite think that as they were being shoved into ovens or made into lampshades).

On top of that, I’m very troubled by Wilders’ very close association with an American woman who made her money through a car dealership (which she co-owned and of which she was an officer), which made it a practice to engage in car loan fraud, using Muslim straw buyers.  Police said the owners, which includes her, were in on the scam because it made them a lot of money, and then a cop was killed, as was the only employee of this woman who had the honesty and decency to inform police about the scam.  The man was assassinated in a hit.  And this woman is Wilders’ chief supporter in the United States. Clearly, he doesn’t do very careful vetting . . . or much vetting at all.

Still, the Beck comment is troubling.  But it’s consistent with Glenn Beck.  Contrary to popular belief, he isn’t smart or well-read or knowledgeable.  But he’s an actor.  And the lowest element of the conservative movement–those with little or no critical thinking skills–eat up his drama queen act.  If he’s against Obama, they’re buying, no matter what.  And that’s sad.

Not only is it sad, but it’s no different than the Obamamessiah crowd.  Except that some of them have woken up.  Hopefully the Beckmessiah crowd will wake up, too.  But I doubt it much.

Beck owes Geert Wilders an apology.  He wouldn’t dare call any Muslims, like his benefactor/employer Prince Al-Waleed, “fascists.”  But they are.  How sad that self-appointed “Fair and Balanced” doesn’t know the difference.

If you’ll notice, the network no longer uses that description, nor does it use, “We Report.  You Decide.”  That’s because they’ve already decided for you.

It’s up to you to allow them to do so.  Or to do your own independent research and employ critical thinking.

“Sorry, The Purple Cow, but you have no credibility with me. As I recall, you’re an Islamic apologist.”

Huh??

[quote. skzion]In any event, the only time you get specific (but only about speech, not actions) is regarding Van Gogh. But this is not about Van Gogh.[/quote]

Yes it is. van Gogh was a friend of Wilders, and he represents the mind-set of the sort of people that Wilders has been recruiting.

[quote; skzion]Wilders has a long history of philo-Semetism, including an extended stay in Israel. You, however, have a brief stay under a pseudonym here.[/quote] I didn;t say that Wildeers is an anti-Semite, what I said was that he has close associations with people who hold deeply nasty views including (but not exclusively) anti-semitism. The reason for that is that his power-base rises from the Netherland’s Calvinist-routed xenophobic voter segment. He is not prepared to alienate these people which is why he allows these neo-fascist people to be active in his party. See for instance the young thugs in the ‘Pioneering City Commando of Wilders’ street gang who have been threatening shop-keepers with violence in Almere.

Wilders is one of the biggest supporters of Israel in all of Europe. His election as Prime Minister (if it does come to pass sometime in the future) could only be good for Jews.

Please, remember that Wilders used to live in Israel, and he is part Jewish himself. His mother was from a prominent Dutch-Jewish-Indonesian family (the Meijers). Wilders has also speculated that his father, who was in the Dutch resistance, was part Jewish too.

OK, if you guys are going to continually ignore the point I am making, I guess there’s no reason to continue.

Obviously English isn’t your native tongue.

The Purple Cow on March 11, 2010 at 2:01 pm

DS: I think you’re wrong on Beck. Or at least I think you overstate the case.

I’ve been watching him regularly, nearly daily for months now, and I just don’t see what you’re writing about.

Certainly he is limited. But he has the decency to talk about that himself.

This comment about Wilders however, really made me sit up and wonder.

I’m still undecided about what it means. For the moment I’m going with the idea that he didn’t do his background work on Wilders — so he was talking out of his hat on the basis of a superficial familiarity. But it has raised some questions.

On the subject of FOX however I am gravely concerned. And I will add that the coincidence of Krauthammer, Kristol and Beck all smearing Wilders has made it highly improbable that anything less than editorial policy is involved.

Certainly there has been very little coverage of the jihad movement on FOX considering its importance. But I will say on their behalf that there has at least been some, whereas on the other stations there has been none or worse, pure pro-jihad propaganda. Nonetheless, it has had e wondering for some time now.

It was a brilliant move on Al-Dickweed’s part to buy into the only TV outlet in America that is even partly pro-freedom and pro-America. It’s like contaminating the only well in town.

What I don’t get is why the FOX upper management was willing to contaminate the brand. They were doing well already, and growing at a nice steady pace.

Murdoch is deeply tied to China, and Dubai. Do either of those two proper nounds ring the Liberty Bell?

Um, no.

Wilders- there’s a time for cleaning house and a time for survival. At present, he has to not get assassinated, and get into power. Realpolitik.

Jonathan Nolan on April 22, 2010 at 10:08 pm

I would take Fox any day over CNN and PMSNBC.

Canard on June 16, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    Beck has been losing ratings points steadily since his debut; I’ve attempted to watch his show, and give it a fair watching; however, his wanderings through his messages’ points are so disjointed, it’s proved “uwatchable”; be my guest you can take up the slack, I’ll render back my portion of the bandwidth.

    whitneymuse on February 24, 2011 at 9:55 am

This sounds slanderous to me. I thought Debbie Schlussel was reliable up until now. I listen and watch Glenn Beck 20 hours a week. I definitely know that he has exposed the Global Warming Hoax at the East Anglia University and has gone even further on exposing “Crime Inc,” the Chicago Climate Exchange corruption. Here’s the link here:

Stop spreading lies. I will never read Debbie Schlussel again.

Queen Esther on July 19, 2010 at 1:28 am

    Beck’s job is to prepare Americans to revolt, when the time comes, just as is o’reilly and others on fox. They will never mention obama not eligible, the bc or ss#’s, but will go out of their way to make those, who believe this, look like crazy birthers. There will be many false prophets in the end times, and beck could be one of them because he ignores truth.

    danE on February 8, 2011 at 8:48 pm

On top of that, I’m very troubled by Wilders’ very close association with an American woman who made her money through a car dealership (which she co-owned and of which she was an officer), ….” Are you refering to Pamela Geller?
If so, it’s news to me. Thanks.

Billy Globe Warmer on August 25, 2010 at 3:47 am

If conservatives keep this up. There won’t be a renewal of America.
None of us are Puritans . Some folks spend to much time looking at the habits of others without looking at their own.
Not a rebuke, just reality.
The last thing we need is a bunch of normal human sinners, known as Conservatives. Pretending to Sainthood.
The only time I hear about race garbage is the Media & Obama.
I doubt Wilder’s even cares about it.
Beck’s form of entertainment, Ive never really cottoned to.
I have no doubts your right about the Fox connections.
Its pretty obvious latley the Islamic infiltration. Thats happening everywhere though. In every Institution. Its what Colinizers do.

Revnant Dream on September 4, 2010 at 11:41 pm

I think you’re right Debbie. Beck soured me very big time when he blindsided Debra Medina during her campaign for the nomination for governor of Texas. Beck and one of his putz cronies set up Medina and mocked her mercilessly after the interview. Granted, Medina should have been prepared and her response was lame; but to me Beck showed his true colors by basically sabotaging her.
This post explains what happened:

People need to wake up the fact that Glenn Beck is simply another opinion pushing charlatan who is a product of mormon cult theology that he mixes with parts of Catholicism and his personal core as a dry alcoholic. And for the record, he is a Mormon and not a Christian. The two are not the same as one is a cult and the other is a religion. This makes Glenn Beck one very twisted screwed up moron who sold his soul to the lowest common denominator of personal stupidity. The religion of Islam has more in common with Christianity than the mormon cult.

The truth about Beck is that he a dry mormon alcoholic who never got the counseling required for alcoholics. Because he does not possess a single ounce of journalistic integrity, this makes him the perfect abortion poster child for Fox Network. Considering the fact that Beck’s personal views are extreme Marxist Libertarian, his form of patriotism is false and he is a person who has no real substance or depth. As such, I would never allow myself to be one of Beck’s many free blow job recipients!

Glenn Beck consistently demonstrates all the unstable behaviors of a dry alcoholic which include grandiosity, judgmentalism, intolerance, impulsivity, ADD, indecisiveness and blindness to truth. In short, Beck, Limbaugh, O Reilly, Hannity, Palin, O Donnell, Coulter and others like them frequently pervert truth, history, facts, religion and the US Constitution when they open their big mouths. Beck is simply part of a national league of pseudo-conservative idiots who make big money by selling lies and half truths to impressionable fools that occupy the lowest levels of society. Basically…tea baggers and registered republicans who are condemned to repeat the mistakes of history.

I don’t find George’s religious bigotry so gorgeous.

We can’t defeat the Islamists if we can’t behave better than them.

John on January 29, 2011 at 10:31 am

    I agree since Islamic bigotry against the kaffar (unbelievers, infidels, us) is notorious.

    From the Qur’an.

    Christians and Jews must believe what Allah has revealed to Muhammad or Allah will disfigure their faces or turn them into apes, as he did the Sabbath-breakers. (See 2:65-66) 4:47
    Those who ascribe a partner to Allah (like Christians do with Jesus and the Holy Spirit) will not be forgiven. They have “invented a tremendous sin.” 4:48, 4:116
    Those who invent lies about Allah are guilty of flagrant sin. 4:50
    Jews and Christians believe in idols and false deities, yet they claim to be more rightly guided than Muslims. 4:51
    “Those (Christians and Jews) are they whom Allah hath cursed.” 4:52
    Hell is sufficient for their burning. 4:55

Beck has done great service lately by publlicizing the plot against Isreal that is presented by the Libyan adventure. The whole point of Obama is to create the precedent of a “no-fly zone” without any Congressional oversight or approval. He will get UN and Arab League support instead when he gets approval to impose a “no-fly zone” to protect Palestinian civilians when they unilaterally declare their new Palestinian State with UN blessing. They plan to do this in the fall and have been lining up advance committments from various countries. Columbia refused today, a rarity in South America. Abbas has already said that all lsrealis in the West Bank will then be expelled. He will do this and then a “no fly zone,” or even a “no-drive zone,” will be declared to prevent Israeli reaction and “carry out the will of the international community and protect civiliams.” Obame will do this with “sorrow” as a “friend protecting Israel against itself.” If you doubt this, google Samantha Power and see what she has said about Israel being to blame for the lack of peace and the United States’ need to take bold, dramatic action to create a Palestinian state and the administration’s willingness to “alienate a powerful and rich constituency.” I wonder who she was talking about? Congree is a friend of Israel, so naturally this plot requires by-passing Congress. Luckily, Qaddafi is an aging dictator who can be mocked as “mentally unstable.” Hillary said the other day that (1) when there is a “humanitarian” crisis, (2) only the United States has the military assets to respond, and (3) the approval of relevant transnational organizations, such as the UN or the Arab League, has been obtained, no Congressional approval is necessary. Think about the lawlessness implied by that formulation. The approval of the Arab League is seen as more important than that of Congress. I assume that Obama will delay this plot until after the election so that he can continue to pose as a “Friend of Israel” and gather thousand of votes of feckless liberal Jews. Beck has also spoken quite movingly about the slaughter of the Fogel family and asked why the media largely ignored it.
