Skip to comments.Did Beck jump the shark today?

Why did Beck say that "birthers" are as dangerous as Timothy McVeigh and that only Democrats and Republican are normal but those who aren't associating themselves with Democrats and Republicans are dangerous? Up until today, he was portraying himself as someone that thought those people were the problem.
I have a hard time figuring out Beck. Clearly, his theatrics are just that. I believe he does have heartfelt conservative convictions. But he's clearly in love with his celebrity, which makes me wonder if he'd sell his soul.
The jury is still out in my mind.
You know, all the things that you posted except for the first item, have nothing to do with birth but they are all items that are kept secret. Nobody can defend why the Zero is keeping them a secret but they can smear us with a broad brush as birthers. Beck is a joke and so is Oreilly. I don't watch them anymore.
I agree. He has been obviously changing his basic persona. He could be being blackmailed, threatened, he and/or his family, bribed or gotten to in some other way. Something is going on.
I pray for a leak. Leaks happen all the time in other circumstances. I think that there needs to be an award offered for anyone who can produce irrefutable evidence as to what Obama, or whatever his name is, is hiding. They can be guaranteed anonymity.
That's like saying the Constitution should be "shut down". Cowardly traitors to our Constitution like yourself are the ones that should be "shut down", at least on Freerepublic. What say you Mr. Robinson?
Their quiz was pretty cool. Here’s how I did:
You are an Anti-government Gunslinger, also known as a libertarian conservative. You believe in smaller government, states rights, gun rights, and that, as Reagan once said, The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, Im from the government and Im here to help.
no- zero bowed to the king.
I saw cavuto’s interview with the prince and it was very interesting. the guy is a smart investor and likes to make money. he considers newscorp a good investment and i agree with him lol. I don’t see him having any influence in fox content at all.
I’m thankful for everything Beck has exposed relentlessly. But it seems to me that if The Constitution and the form of government of our founding fathers is what matters, why would he exclude what is required to be qualified as a president?
That bothers me.
If obama was held to the constituional requirement, would the wind would be out of Beck’s sail with all the organizing of his upcoming rallies? He’s only human - and I have to wonder.
I like Beck for the most part, but he is a bit melodramatic at times but that’s the showman in him. he makes a lot of good points and i think he does a good job informing people about things they might not otherwise be aware of.
Beck is becoming Bill O’Reilly. He feels he has to create “crazies” on the right that he then attacks, along with the crazies on the left, to demonstrate how “in the middle he is.
Beck said he sold his house a while back because he didn’t want to owe anyone any money. Yet he still lives in a house.
I’ve been waiting for him to explain this someday. With all the money he makes I would think he could easily pay cash
for a house anyway.
“Obama will be made to look like he just defeated the entire right side of the political spectrum. “
Obama is going to do this by refusing to answer a reasonable question, then, answering it when the questioner persists. That’s an interesting bit of logic there.
Beck needs to ease off “birthers.” As he claims to be a constitutionalist it is puzzling he ignores 0bama’s natural born citizen status.
Who died and left you in charge?
I guess that questioning with boldness stuff is passe.
Beck has changed—I don’t know why but he seems to have pulled his punches and is now attacking Sarah Palin and others. Did someone blackmail him? Has he gone back to drinking? This move to shut down 3rd Parties seems a bit unconstitutional. Being off the wall was his way of making a point—now he just seems to be interested in selling his books and tours. I want the old Beck back. He wasn’t afraid to call a communist, a communist.
Prepare for a chorus from ALL FCC regulated media and print media....to wail about the Tea Party....this is why Palin keeps talking about bringing it under the Pubbies.
this is sand in the face of the BIg Boyz in DC....they have the power AND the money...
Was he peddling a book or concert tour while he said it? I listened to him years ago when he started—his show was only on a crappy little station in Maine.
I respect his ability to raise a buck, but whenever he says something like “I’ve got great news, but tune in at 5 to hear it...” really pisses me off.
