The Audacious Narcissism of Being Beck


skunks-477Did you know the reason many cable providers aren’t carrying Glenn Beck’s channel is because of demonic activity? Golly, and I thought it was the other way around!

The other day Glenn Beck said that Bill Nye’s suggestion that parents might want to let their kids learn about evolution was equal to what the Catholic Church did to Galileo.  Yes,  you read correctly.  He compared creationism to Galileo’s theory that the earth was not the center of the universe.

Glenn Beck now thinks he helped play a role in tearing the country apart.  Yep, his narcissism now knows no bounds.  He is so important, so darn important, he helped to destroy the country.

“…“I remember it as an awful lot of fun and that I made an awful lot of mistakes, and I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language,” Beck said. “I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart.” “I didn’t realize how really fragile the people were. I thought we were kind of more in it together.”…”

In almost all respects, he is the perfect example of what is truly wrong with the talking heads of the nation, be them right, left, or even center.

“…Beck, who recently penned an open letter to the New York governor, argued Cuomo is attempting to assert a certain position in his state, which continues to move to the far-left. He said there is a “hostile takeover” by the radical left in New York, with progressive Bill de Blasio taking the reins in New York City.

“It’s a position that’s going to leave him in the dust bin of history,” he told host Megyn Kelly. “He says he’s talking about politicians, but, OK. If we can’t have politicians who stand up for the Constitution, stand up because they have the point of view that you have the right to life as an unborn child. … Those two, in particular, those are essential for us to argue about and have debate about, especially in politics.”…”

I really don’t like linking to anything Beck, but if you want a text-book study of narcissism, read his open letter to the Governor of New York.  It isn’t really about Beck, but his entire ilk.  Case in point is Chris Matthews.  I like the description of him as a Beltway Blowhard.  We all know what a total jerk Rush Limbaugh is.  Bill O’Reilly is perhaps even worse.  There’s no difference between Rachel Maddow and Laura Ingraham except for ideology.  I don’t know which is the most grating and repulsive. Sean Hannity thinks he’s important enough to threaten leaving NYC and people will roll over and follow him.  Michael Medved pretends to be humble, but like so many of his conservative associates is nothing but a Koch Whore.

They’re all the same.  Only the names, faces, and party affiliation are different.  All that matters is their ratings and their feedback.  This nation would be so much better if we quit listening to them.  Heck, I’d much rather watch reruns of Top Gear and Finding Bigfoot!
