The war on Glenn Beck ~ By Robert Ringer

The bottom line for me is that Glenn Beck is still the most remarkable person on television, and I'm hoping he stays with Fox. But if the powers that be ever did insist that he put a more positive spin on his show (i.e., that he lie to his viewers), I believe his sense of honor would compel him to leave Fox. Beck is on a mission, and I think purity in thought, speech and action are nonnegotiable with him.

As I said in an earlier article, I believe Beck when he says he will never give up. I believe him when he says if he is forced off television, he will find another platform that is even bigger. I believe him when he says he is willing to die if that's what it takes to speak the truth.
I'll start out by saying that I saw a comment for the video that you will see below that explains at least part of the attack on Glenn Beck. This comment was written by sandio713 and who seems to be a Beck fan:
I think that left wing bimbo is just jealous. She only wishes she could get the viewership and following that Glenn has. Apparently, he's resonating with a lot of ppl; otherwise, the left-wing drive by media wouldn't continue to attack him. Lets face it, no one goes after a NOBODY!! They have to be able to affect ppl and have a following...and that's why the bimbo in the vid continues to attack him. She's the nobody! Is she some kind of faction, like Beck? I sincerely doubt it.
Certainly, the attack on Glenn Beck isn't just about jealousy as the comment alluded to, though sandio713 was definitely correct when it came to the lady in the video. A lot to do with the attack on Beck is something more entirely, as Robert explains in this column: "Most Americans are not yet ready to accept the truths Beck teaches, so they find it easier to dismiss him as a doomsayer or conspiracy nut." Being that Glenn is being attacked by the left and a few establishment elites on the right, it is possible that it has a lot to do with the establishment that does not want the American people to know the truth.

But how does a person explain a long, boring rant from Brannon Howse, attacking Glenn Beck's spiritual beliefs? First of all, I had never heard of Brannon Howse, so I know nothing about his credibility. Will Brannon get famous for attacking Glenn Beck? Was that his purpose? Second of all, it goes to illustrate that some people will stoop very low when they arrogantly believe that they are the one who is correct in a debate, only so that they can marginalize their opponent. I didn't think that a Christian would do that, but I guess it happens.

Robert Ringer has it right when he mentions that Beck would not stay with Fox if he was told to change his content. Robert says, "I believe his sense of honor would compel him to leave Fox." I concur. And I also personally hope that never happens!

When Chris Wallace interviewed Glenn Beck on "Fox News Sunday" the day after his stunningly successful Restoring Honor event at the Lincoln Memorial, he told Beck that in all his years as a journalist in Washington, he had never seen anything quite like him.

I could relate to his statement, because in my article "Glenn Beck's departure from Fox News" (May 26, 2010) [Part 1]  [Part 2], I said that Beck was "the biggest, fastest, most controversial star in the political commentary business in my lifetime" and pointed out that the White House purportedly referred to him as "the Beck problem."

But jealousy and the establishment have a way of Palinizing those who have the courage to take the road less traveled. So it's not surprising that rumors are now flying about Glenn Beck's ratings decline, his loss of major advertisers and his possible end-of-year departure from Fox News. The word is that the powers that be at Fox supposedly want Beck to put a more positive spin on his commentaries.

(Do not be surprised if this video disappears.
It is doubtful that The Alyona Show will last very long.)

Not long ago, neocon Bill Kristol took a shot at Beck when he said, "When Glenn Beck rants about the caliphate taking over the Middle East from Morocco to the Philippines, and lists the connections between caliphate-promoters and the American left, he's marginalizing himself." Kristol seems like a nice enough chap, but he's your classic establishment Republican who doesn't like newcomers saying things that go beyond the normal, meaningless Beltway chatter.

Likewise, supercilious Bernard Goldberg, the one-trick-pony who, but for the grace of Bill O'Reilly, would long ago have faded into obscurity, recently made a snide comment that "Beck brings a lot of it on himself."

Really, Bernie? How? By showing actual videos of Van Jones preaching revolution? Of Anita Dunn saying she draws her inspiration from Mao Zedong? Of Mark Lloyd saying that he wants to go beyond the fairness doctrine? Of Frances Fox Piven advocating violence? Of George Soros bragging about how much he enjoys playing God?

This is the kind of stuff Beck has been showing every day for two years now, always encouraging his audience to check out the facts for themselves.

Though Beck is a multi-faceted individual, his greatest talent is that he's a master teacher. His Fox News shows are like going to college, but learning things they don't teach at the most expensive campuses in the country.

And therein, I believe, lies the crux of the problem. Beck is too good of a teacher, something Will Durant warned about when he said, "Woe to him who teaches men faster than they can learn." Most Americans are not yet ready to accept the truths Beck teaches, so they find it easier to dismiss him as a doomsayer or conspiracy nut.
