    Glen's kids don't believe his nonsense. Beck himself doesn't even believe his own crazy statements. He just opens his mouth, ****** comes out, and people listen. The people who listen to him are a nice, big, gullible audience, just the kind that advertisers like, So beck makes a pile of money from the **** that comes out of his mouth. It's a sweet deal for him.

    except he does have to use lot of mouthwash.

    I think a big part of what you're saying is true, but I am not sure because he gets really emotional sometimes and cries, often ties religion into it. He is also egotistical and seems to want to appear he is doing God's work, so it reminds me of fraudulent preachers and televangelists. I am just not sure how much of it he believes is a lie, and how much he believes himself.

But then something happened and his discourse became increasingly reminiscent of the likes of Alex Jones and I seriously started to question both his intelligence and his sanity. He had the advantage at one point and he completely blew it. I barely could stand to watch him for 5 minutes at a time in the end. Never listened to his radio show so I can't comment on that, but if the OP is any indication, he's still competing for most insane pundit of the year.
    I listened to him as well, for a while. Thought he made some interesting points.
    Then he turned into a media wh...., got addicted to ratings, talked about what came across as sensationalism, what appealed most to his listeners.
    THat, and I can take drama for only so long. Facts are more my style.

    As an American, he has every right to teach his children whatever he pleases, within reason, as send them to any school he can afford.
    Its a free country. Not sure what this has to do with anything.

But I did get the same feeling that they think Americans are stupid, know little about world and geography, and they hated GWB before America actually did.
    Too bad that the Europeans you describe do overgeneralize. As for me, I wouldn't even dare to say that ALL Europeans are ignorant, are all the same, based on what I think about a few citizens , or the leaders of the individual European countries..
    Sadly we don't all think like that. The world would be a much better place, if we wouldn't give in to preconceived notions and bias.

    Yes. While I may have chosen a milder version of the same, this sums it up nicely.
    As I always say, they want ears and eyeballs.
    But lets not forget, most people are rather gullible. We should never buy into one source of information, but research and compare, in context, anything that is being said.

    He throws religion into the mix, to gain more credibility in Christian communities.
    Being a Christian myself, I don't buy it though. One shouldn't cause strive, but seek peace, shouldn't say "while I have mine, I don't care if they have theirs".
    Just as absurd as it is for a Rev Wright to instill hatred/unrest/dissatisfaction into the hearts of his congregation, Beck shouldn't be mentioned as anything close to a Christian.
