Category Archives: Glenn Beck is batshit crazy
Well, it’s about time. Today, ABC News reports that the city attorney of Santa Monica, Ca., in conjunction with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, has launched an investigation into Goldline International, the gold company that sponsors and is heavily promoted on Glenn Beck’s TV and radio shows. Apparently, California authorities discovered what Mother Jones readers likely already knew, which is that Goldline misleads customers into buying overpriced gold coins that they weren’t necessarily in the market for:
“There are two main types of complaints we’re seeing,” said Adam Radinsky of the Santa Monica City Attorney’s office, which has launched what it described as a joint investigation with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office. “One is that customers say that they were lied to and misled in entering into their purchases of gold coins,” he said. “And the other group is saying that they received something different from what they had ordered.”
Radinsky says that the investigation is in the preliminary stages but that it involves more than 100 consumer complaints about Goldline and the Superior Gold Group, which are both based in Santa Monica.
This news of course puts a smile on my face. Beck shills for these fucks on both his Fox TV show and his radio show. The fuckwits at Goldline are saying this is a politically-motivated investigation by people that hate Glen Beck. Oh horseshit you assholes! Becky has no involvement in the investigation, nor he is being investigated. The DA’s office now has a website set up for people with complaints about Goldline www.gold.smconsumer.org.
UPDATE: on Dylan Ratigan’s show today Rep. Anthony Weiner stated he wants congress to investigate these fucks.
Consider these tallies from Glenn Beck’s show on Fox News since Obama’s inauguration: 202 mentions of Nazis or Nazism, according to transcripts, 147 mentions of Hitler, 193 mentions of fascism or fascist, and another 24 bonus mentions of Joseph Goebbels. Most of these were directed in some form at Obama — as were the majority of the 802 mentions of socialist or socialism on Beck’s nightly “report.”
Ain’t that friggin lovely? The nutters/teabaggers obviously eat it up.
Jon Stewart slaps Glenn Beck around a bit. It’s hilarious and fucking sad..all at the same time. But remember…Beck only sold 17 tickets at his Boston showing, so the rightwing nuttery factory isn’t hitting on all cylinders. Thank Gawd.

Glen Beck on the Census:
There are tons of videos up showing the rightwing nutters freaking out on the census.
Good read up at HuffPo on the rightwing nutters and their paranoia of the Federal Government.
He was funny as hell whilst bitchslapping the idiot Beck. Watch:
Rockefeller Center, I had no idea Glenn! Thanks you warped sick fuckwit. It was a good laugh at least.
From Market Watch, which btw, is owned by Rupert Murdoch:
Among the advertisers to pull spots from the popular cable talk show are Geico, owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway ; Procter & Gamble ; Sargento Cheese; and Progressive Insurance , according to the companies and Color of Change, one group that is organizing a campaign against the program.
I am on Color of Change‘s mailing list. I joined the fray last week, but figured nothing would come of it.
Sadly, some of the advertisers don’t have the balls to yank the ads completely from Faux News, so they aren’t technically losing the revenue. From Market Watch:
For its part, Fox News said through a spokeswoman that while some advertisers have “removed their spots from Beck,” they have just shifted to “other programs on the network, so there has been no revenue lost.”
If Color of Change keeps up the pressure, or Beck keeps preaching more insane bullshit, perhaps more of these advertisers will see the light.
We can hope. Right? Meanwhile, the rightwing nutters have started a campaign to support Beck, according to TVNewser:
Meanwhile, in a counter to the ColorofChange.org campaign, a Support Glenn Beck site has been set up asking fans, “to show your support for Glenn Beck” by contacting the companies. The site RedState.com also lists the names and phone numbers of the CEOs.
And on his show last night, Stephen Colbert brought up the ad issue: “In the case of Geico, it’s especially hurtful because that stack of money with googly eyes is Glenn’s producer.”
So, get onboard Color of Change’s attempt to silence the crazed, hateful idiot if you are so inclined. The First Amendment is fine, but lies and obfuscation are bullshit and should not be protected speech.
Watch Steven Colbert fuck with Glenn here on my video page..worth the trip! 😉
