The Truth – Never Hard to Hear

September 6, 2009

Glenn Beck’s Head Writer Hails Soviet Era Brutal Dictator on His Myspace Page

September 2, 2009

Glenn Beck would like you to believe that he is a “victim” of liberals attacking him for no reason. That’s the explanation he gives for the loss of major advertisers on his Fox show. Informed and saavy watchers of his show know the truth, he’s only reaping what he’s sown.  It’s humorous that Beck decries Van Jones as being a Communist when he has one as his own advisor!  Watch out, Glenn Beck – you protest too much!

For a while I’ve wondered what was really wrong with Glenn Beck.  Today I discovered a great post by Angelo on Another War of Jenkins’ Ear (http://jenkinsear.com/).  In a little known fact, Beck’s chief writer, advisor and Executive Producer has ties to a brutal, totalitarian, Soviet era dictator.  So, what’s really wrong with Beck is that we now know exactly who is in charge over there.  Read Angelo’s post for the complete info.

Great job, Angelo!

CLOROX Corporation Pulls Away from Glenn Beck

August 20, 2009

Clorox Corporation (Brita’s parent company), pulls Glenn Beck’s advertisements.

August 20, 2009

This is in response to your recent communication regarding Clorox Company advertising. Thank you for contacting us, we very much appreciate hearing from consumers as The Clorox Company remains committed to quality broadcasting. We pride ourselves in being a responsible advertiser and have established long-standing and strict standards for the selection of television programming. Per our standards, we do not advertise in programs that display exploitive sex or violence; treat ethnic, religious or political groups in a disparaging manner; present facts inaccurately or distort them to blatantly partisan advantage; and treat individuals or groups in a demeaning manner.

Clorox holds true to our advertising standards and we hold true to our nation’s heritage of free expression of political opinions. However, consistent with our standards, we do not want to be associated with inflammatory speech used by either liberal or conservative talk show hosts. After a comprehensive review of political talks shows across the spectrum, at this time we have made a decision not to advertise on political talk shows.

Today’s television programming environment is extremely challenging for responsible advertisers. However, The Clorox Company will continue to exercise special care in all program and station selection. We do not want to support programming that is in conflict with our programming standards.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact us.

Sincerely, Tracy Wise Consumer Response Representative Consumer Services

Success in BOYCOTTING GLENN BECK’S Sponsors

August 20, 2009

Yee Haw! Talk about free enterprise in motion!! Just take a look at the sponsors who have withdrawn their advertisements from Glenn Beck’s show.  I give credit to the patriotic Americans who believe that evil MUST obliterated and that any whack-job that incites violence against our beloved President should see consequences. Members of my family have not given their lives in military service to our Country to have crazies provoke marginal, pathetic people to act violently against the highest officer of our Country.

I commend these fine American companies who refuse to be drawn into the gutter of hatred and violence!  I give credit to these patriotic Americans who wrote emails, letters and made phone calls to encourage these companies not to encourage hatred, venom and violence.   KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Overwhelming response to BOYCOTT BECK’s ADVERTISERS

July 31, 2009

WOW! I’ve had overwhelming responses from folks who are incensed over some corporate irresponsibility and trying to shuffle off the sponsorship of Glenn Beck’s show.  Some corporate responses have indicated that they “outsource” their advertising to third parties.

Other corporations have attempted to dodge responsibility by saying they advertise on a “variety” of shows to reach all levels of Americans.

Well, here’s my response to Chrysler Corporation.  Feel free to copy/amend/and send it yourself:

It’s unfortunate that you will not consider removing your advertisements from Mr. Beck’s show.

Many people may not take the time to write you, but I am only one of many concerned citizens who see corporate responsibility as a prime topic in the minds of American consumers these days.  You could continue to advertise in venues that do not promote hatred, over-throwing our government or inciting violence against our highest elected official.

It’s sad you don’t see any connection between being a responsible corporation and endorsing and supporting someone like Glenn Beck.  I am confident the choices of the Americans who detest racist cowardice will show you our position.

Glenn Beck says, “Obama is a racist.”

July 30, 2009

Once again, Glenn Beck and the FOX NETWORK do not disappoint the below-average, red-blooded American. Good ‘ole Glenn didn’t have to stutter to make his point.  He sat right there on Fox News and pronounced that our beloved President, Barack Obama, is a RACIST.  And all the Conservative wackos just stood up in their living rooms and jumped up and down for JOY!!!  There.  Someone finally spoke the truth and called that nigger exactly what he really is….a racist.

Of course the network immediately attempted to distance themselves from Glenn Beck with their sterilized statement that he does not represent the views of the network….HA!  What a FARCE!!!!  OF COURSE Glenn Beck spouts the views of the Fox Network…that’s exactly what he is paid to do.   And the conservatives have just been pacing, wringing their hands and waiting anxiously for someone of “true” character and veracity to speak up and call that fake President what he really is.

EXCEPT that ANY and EVERY person who reads, thinks and has the ability to reason knows that Glenn Beck is simply leading a desperate attempt to stir up and incite violent actions against the highest ELECTED official in our land, President Barack Obama .   Now that the Conservatives and those “randy Republicans” find their numbers slipping in the polls and they’ve lost the White House, they HAVE to get desperate, down and dirty to attract attention to themselves.  This is especially true now that Cheney and the little shrub aren’t there sitting on their thumbs anymore.

When you can’t focus your Republican Party leadership on attracting minority voters, developing a platform that American voters want, or showing integrity, then all you have left is to slander, threaten, incite terrorists and reduce your actions to pathetic name-calling.

Glenn Beck is frustrated that HIS political party cannot step up and DO SOMETHING (despite the fact that they were in the Oval Office and had the majority of Congress for 8 long years).  You see, now the Repugnants are having to WORK in Congress, are desperately searching high and low for any leadership, see the consequences of supporting lazy Bush and Cheney, and have to look at the WHITE House being dirtied by a nigger.  They are frustrated beyond belief.  So, the mouthpiece of the FAUX Network can only resort to name-calling.  Yeah, just like the 3rd graders in Elementary School.

If only we could put Glenn Beck, FOX Network, and the Republican leadership in time out!  That was the place in school where troublemakers couldn’t TALK, bully their peers or lie to the teacher (or about the teacher).  But since there is no time out for the ignorant, hypocritical, Republican sore-losers the one thing I CAN do is to write to the sponsors of that network and let them know I’ll boycott their products and services as long as they advertise on the network.

But alas, no….through the years we’ve learned that the network whore (Beck) won’t be silenced.  While pretending to distance themselves from Beck in public, FOX network will still pay the big bucks under the table to him encouraging him to spout lies and inflame their narrow-minded listeners.  Glenn Beck will stop at nothing to prove he ain’t no Walter Cronkite.

What Republicans Say

July 8, 2009

This poem was written by a friend.   I agreed to post it on  my blog because I think he clearly states how Republicans are viewed by a great number of people in the United States and around the world.  It’s a sad statement on what a once-great political party has come to stand for.  The saddest part is that their members really don’t care to change how they are perceived, but they really don’t care to change their behavior because it displays the following true values.

What Republicans Say….

What Republicans say:
“Family values”
What they mean:
“I value my family; to hell with yours.”

What Republicans say:
“Personal responsibility”
What they mean:
“Rich people are responsible; if you’re poor, it must be because you’re irresponsible.”

What Republicans say:
“Fiscal responsibility”
What they mean:
“Obliterating the budget with war and tax breaks”

What Republicans say:
“Fair and balanced”
What they mean:
“Biased in my favor”

What Republicans say:
“Pro-life”
What they mean:
“Human life is valuable and ought to be protected before birth (unless it’s in China, because, after all, we like our Walmart crap to be really cheap); after that, it’s your own damn problem. Unless you’re terminally ill and want to die; then you have to live. Oh, and except if you commit a crime, even if you’re not yet of legal age. Then it’s death for you.”

What Republicans say:
“Spreading Democracy”
What they mean:
“Colonialism”

What Republicans say:
“Our allies abroad”
What they mean:
“Communist China (the West’s great-big sweat shop which has reportedly forced women into abortions) and Saudi Arabia, an Islamic Monarchy”

What Republicans say:
“Border security”
What they mean:
“We need to find a way to allow just enough Mexican pseudo-slaves in here without giving them any sort of legal status.”

What Republicans say about healthcare:
“Protecting choice and freedom”
What they mean:
“Protecting my choice and freedom to make sure you’re denied care.”
