Now Beck Has Pissed Off Jewish People

First Black folks…

Then Hispanics…

Now Jewish folks.

Think Beck;s time on Faux is getting short.

An Amusing Image...Only to Glenn Beck

Jewish Group Wants Glenn Beck Dropped From Fox News

Jewish Funds for Justice (JFSJ), a charity that campaigns for social change, delivered a petition with 10,000 signatures to Fox News Thursday demanding that talk show host Glenn Beck get the pink slip.

The petition drive began in November after Fox News aired a three-part Beck special on businessman and philanthropist George Soros called “Puppet Master.” The television show was deemed anti-Semitic by many in the media and Jewish groups.
Beck once said that his election coverage goal was to “make George Soros cry,” which is “hard to do,” as Soros “saw people into gas chambers.”

Beck’s Thursday night show highlighted nine people of the 20th century who contributed to “the era of the big lie.” All nine of these “shadowy figures,” as Beck called them, were Jewish, including psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud and columnist Walter Lippman. Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania also was cited.

Mik Moore, chief strategy officer for JFSJ, told Politics Daily that the group met with Fox News Channel president Roger Ailes last summer to raise concerns about Beck’s use of Holocaust references. Moore said the group received some commitments from the network that it would watch for anti-Semitic language. But that didn’t happen, according to Moore.

On Thursday, the group unveiled Beck’s 10 worst quotes of 2010, which included “Women are psychos” and “Charles Darwin is the father of the Holocaust.”

The group says it has other plans regarding Beck. On Jan. 17, WOR in New York, citing Beck’s low ratings, and WPHT in Philadelphia are dropping Beck’s radio show. JFSJ has sent letters to six radio stations in New York City that seem like a match for Beck’s talk show, asking them not to pick it up. If that happens, Beck will not have a radio outlet in the city.

“We are just beginning to enter into a conversation with those stations,” Moore said.

In light of Sarah Palin’s blood libel comment this week, the group said that Palin and Beck “have abused two of the most tragic episodes in the history of the Jewish people: the Holocaust and the blood libel.”

The group’s president Simon Greer said, “The Jewish community does not appreciate their identification, which only serves to denigrate the very real pain so many Jews have suffered because of anti-Semitic violence. It is clear that Fox News has a Jewish problem.”

Glenn Beck Dumped By NYC Radio Station WOR

Perhaps the beginning of the end…

Glenn Beck dropped by New York’s WOR radio station over poor ratings, replaced by Mike Gallagher

Glenn Beck may be one of the hottest talk show hosts in the country, but he apparently left New York‘s WOR cold.

WOR (710 AM), one of the city’s two biggest talk radio stations, said this morning it is dropping Beck’s syndicated show as of Jan. 17 and replacing him with a familiar New York name: Mike Gallagher.

“The reason is ratings,” said WOR program director Scott Lakefield. “Somewhat to our surprise, the show wasn’t getting what we wanted.”

Beck, whose style is sometimes off-center and who hosted a well-publicized national rally in D.C. last year, has been seen as one of the rising conservative radio and TV talk stars.

What was that line from the Frank Sinatra Song?

If you can’t make it there, you can’t make it anywhere?

Glenn Beck and the Innocence of Slavery in America

This is unbelievable!

Glenn Beck denies the history of slavery in America.

Let me paint you a picture here, Mr. Beck – here is a picture of two slave children for sale -

Slave Photo

This picture came from an estate sale in Charlotte, North Carolina, and was accompanied by a document detailing the sale of  “John” for $1,150 in 1854. An estimated 12 million slaves died in the “Middle Passage” on the way to the Americas…

Hardly an innocent business.

Slavery existed in Europe and the Americas for nearly 200 years before the English Colonies which became the United States were founded. The English, the Spanish, the Dutch, the Portuguese, and virtually all seagoing European powers participated in that trade – starting in the 1400’s. Even Queen Elizabeth participaed and profited frm the trade:

English participation in the lucrative slave trade seems to have begun when John Hawkins hijacked a Portuguese ship carrying Africans to Brazil in 1562. Hawkins traded the slaves at Hispaniola for ginger, pearls and sugar, making a huge profit which could not be ignored by his countrymen. One year later, Hawking sold a cargo of Black slaves in Hispaniola and the floodgates were opened. Though Queen Elizabeth spoke out against the dark business, she later took shares in Hawkins” ventures, even lending him one of her ships in the enterprise that pitted her adventurous navigators against those of Spain, Portugal, and the Netherlands (It was Hawkins who introduced tobacco into England in 1565).

Somebody needs to put Mr. Beck back on his anti-psychotic medication.

Donald Duck Gets Political?

Whoever produced this one did a first class job. I don’t know if they spliced together a lot of clips, or did this one from scratch…

But the sophistication on this one is astounding if done by anything other than a major studio.

Donald Duck vs Glenn Beck!

Clueless – DC’s IQ Level Went Up 50 points Post Beck March…

Notice what happens here when any of the Tea Bagger Becazoids gets asked to defend their “Soundbyte” position…

They can’t. They are also woefully unaware of stuff that has been in the media for months…

Watching Faux will indeed make you stupid.

No Honor at the Rally

Black Conservative – Just Say No to Beck

One of the things the overheated racial rhetoric from the Tea Bagger right seems to be doing is clarifying the issues between black folks and conservatives. Even conservative and Republican black folks, with 20/200 vision – are beginning to read the handwriting on the wall.

In this article, a black conservative explains why he won’t be onstage for the Beckapalooza…

Why This Conservative Won’t Be at Glenn Beck’s Rally

I understand why some black conservatives feel the need to participate in the Restoring Honor event in Washington, D.C. However, I have declined the invitation.

It could have been an honor to attend. It would have been something to tell my grandchildren about one day. I could have said that I participated in a historic event —  Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally that will be a notable point in the story of the Tea Party movement in America.

Instead, I felt that I had a greater obligation to history — the Aug. 28, 1963, “I Have a Dream” rally in Washington, D.C. — than I had to being present in Washington, D.C., this Aug. 28.

For me, it was clear why I — and perhaps many other black conservatives — had to say no.  I understand that there are some who will participate in the rally on Saturday. For example, anti-abortion Dr. Alveda King (niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) will be one of the featured speakers.

The Frederick Douglass Foundation will attend the rally as “esteemed” guests, sitting on the speakers’ stage, primarily in support of King. I get this. It is important that pro-life advocates grab advantageous platforms to address and eradicate the black genocide via abortion in our communities — and since the political left is not willing to provide an opportunity to address these grievances, opportunities such as Saturday’s will have to do.

Yet for me, after former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s defense of Dr. Laura during the “n-word” controversy and Glenn Beck’s feigned gratitude to “divine providence” for picking the Aug. 28 date, it just seems historically improper for most black conservatives to acquiesce to the spirit of this event, particularly as some of the principal personalities involved have long sidestepped the crisis in black America today — the very issues that King spoke to back in Aug. 1963.
