Glenn Beck: My Nonviolence Pledge Same as MLK’s

January 17, 2011

(ChattahBox Political News)—While we honor Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King on this national holiday, Fox News conspiracy theorist and hate-monger Glenn Beck continues to hijack King’s legacy. On his website, Beck, who once attacked our first black president as a “racist” having a “deep seated hatred of white people,” urges his supporters to read his own pledge of nonviolence and compare it to Martin Luther King’s. In Beck’s warped mind there are “similarities” between the two documents, except there isn’t, not in the least. Beck’s document, issued in the wake of the Tucson massacre, is rife with thinly disguised attacks on Democrats, President Obama and progressive Sociology professor Frances Fox Piven.

Beck previously tried to “reclaim” Martin Luther King’s legacy by staging his tea party rally on the same day and same place where King delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

Now, on Martin Luther King day, Beck, who peddles bizarre conspiracy theories and race-baiting hate talk on a daily basis, is trying to “reclaim” Martin Luther King’s achievements.

“Over four decades ago, Martin Luther King, Jr. led the Civil Rights Movement with a philosophy and pledge of nonviolence. In the wake of the tragedy in Arizona, Glenn put forth a similar call for nonviolence. Read both below and see the similarities,” writes Beck om his website.

As pointed out by Media Matters, “Beck’s pledge is steeped in politics and contains a very thinly-veiled attack on President Obama. Moreover, Beck has a long history of violent rhetoric with which potential pledge-signers may not want to associate.”

I think we can all agree that Glenn Beck, a self-described rodeo clown and fearmonger, is nothing like Martin Luther King, not in any way, shape or form.

    Beck needs medication as badly as Loughner. They share a similar mental disorder.

    No matter what he does, Beck will never convince me or the majority of other black Americans that he is anything like MLK. He’s spitting in the wind, and it’s blowing back into his face. We black Americans have always known who in this country is for us, and who is against us. Beck fits solidly into the latter category because his behavior illustrates that he doesn’t value blacks and a whole host of others who don’t agree with him. In spite of what those like Beck think, we’re smarter than they give us credit for. We know that if Beck lies on, and disrespects, the president, he’ll do us the same way, and he won’t give it a second thought.

    People need to wake up the fact that Glenn Beck is the biggest ASS in the world. This closet homosexual is simply another opinion pushing charlatan who is a product of mormon cult theology that he mixes with cherry picked parts of Catholicism, New Age Religions and his personal core as a washed up, dry alcoholic. He is a pretty messed up individual who possesses absolutely no personal integrity. And for the record, he is a Mormon and not a Christian. The two are not the same as one is a cult and the other is a religion. This makes Glenn Beck one very twisted screwed up moron who sold his soul to the lowest common denominator of personal stupidity. And for the record…the religion of Islam has far more in common with Christianity than the mormon cult.

    Glenn Beck can be summarized simply as a dry mormon alcoholic who never got the counseling required for alcoholics. Those are his only qualifications for anything in life as he never went to college and definitely knows nothing about American History or the US Constitution. Because he does not possess a single ounce of journalistic integrity, this makes him the perfect abortion poster child for Fox Network. Considering the fact that Beck’s personal views are extreme Marxist Libertarian, his form of patriotism is false and he is a person who has no real substance or depth. He is definitely not a true conservative.

    Just as with that sex crazed control freak (Joseph Smith) who duped impressionable people into his home made belief system called mormonism, or that 5th grade graduate (Charles T Russell) who duped ignorant people out of lots of money and started the Jehovah’s Witness Cult, this over-paid idiot (Glenn Beck) got in bed with Satan a very long time ago. It’s really all about the money as hate, lies, promotion of ignorance and fear mongering are the only marketable skills that Glenn Beck has on his side. The only way he survives is from developing and growing a flock of very impressionable idiots who do not understand the difference between a cult and a religion or truth & facts versus lies.

    Glenn Beck consistently demonstrates all the unstable behaviors of a dry alcoholic which include grandiosity, judgmentalism, intolerance, impulsivity, ADD, indecisiveness and blindness to truth. In short, Beck, Limbaugh, O Reilly, Hannity, Palin, O Donnell, Coulter and others like them frequently pervert truth, history, facts, religion and the US Constitution when they open their big mouths. Beck is simply part of a national league of pseudo-conservative idiots who make big money by selling lies and half truths to impressionable fools who occupy the lowest levels of society. You know the type…tea baggers and registered republicans who are condemned to repeat the mistakes of history.

    You are all a joke. Glenn Beck has never claimed to lie or be a fear monger except in extreme sarcasm. Whatever dipstick wrote this website needs to learn how to write in proper English before ever posting anything on the internet again. Whenever any of you are willing to become a patriot of the United States of America, you can read the constitution and learn about the founding fathers. After this is done you can try to discredit Glenn Beck.

    Good luck and God bless
