    Is Glenn Beck a fake?

    Do you mean, like, was he fashioned out of clay and animated into a grotesque imitation of life by a diabolical necromancer practicing the dark arts, and set loose upon the world in order to snuff out all that is good and pure so to pave the way for an eternity of human suffering? That kind of fake?

    I think we should at least consider the possibility.

    Only the ones who indicate, through their rhetoric, that they are, in fact, stupid.

    Of course, I'm sure there are some non-stupid listeners whose brain cells haven't been killed by Glenn's whiny voice. They're just intelligent enough to be embarrased about their naughty little Glenn addiction.

    Which, as far as I can tell, the anti-Beck people here believe is.....all of them.

    And so there are intelligent Beck fans? Which .. ? I am sorry the definition of stupid does not include the beck believers but that doesn't mean that clearly there are many that have been duped. Politics and philosophy dealing with it doesn't boil down to faith in god and tax cuts for the wealthy.( or ripping off the same believers with a money scam like Goldline.) Beck is a pathetic snake oil salesman.

    I've only seen you belittle Beck listeners. I have no confidence that you look at them with an open mind and consider that they actually might think, read and research for themselves.

    Based on threads like this, it is abundantly apparent that the average beck fan doesn't have any idea how to think, read, or research for themselves:

    I can only work with what you give me, Mellie. When you post threads that make it clear that you don't understand history, that you have zero concept of how to weigh sources for credibility/objectivity/bias, and that you don't really exercise independent thought, it's hard for me to conclude otherwise.

    I really hadn't paid much attention to Beck until I started encountering his little groupies here. Nothing I've seen from the beck groupies has demonstrated any sort of capacity for independent thought or intellectual curiosity.

    Re: Is Glenn Beck a Fake?

    It's been about six months since that thread was posted. At the time, this is what I told you:

    If you want to learn about the faith of the America founding fathers, I'd love to recommend the following, which contain actual scholarship and depth:

    David McCullough's excellent book, John Adams

    Ken Burns' excellent documentary, Thomas Jefferson (online at Thomas Jefferson Online)

    Jared Stewart's The Life of Gouverneur Morris (7 chapters online here: The Life of Gouverneur Morris, by Jared Sparks, Page 1 | Colonial Hall)

    Joseph Ellis's Founding Brothers and His Excellency: George Washington

    Walter Isaacson's Benjamin Franklin: An American Life

    Walter Stahr's John Jay: Founding Father

    Ron Chernow's Alexander Hamilton

    My experience, however, is that the average Glen Beck fan isn't interested in learning anything at all, but rather, in having existing paradigms reinforced.
    I've seen nothing from you, Barbbtx, or the other beck groupies that has changed my opinion since that time.
