"We jokingly call this our Oedipus project because the left will be making out with me ... and they'll have no idea."

This is a very...odd statement. Ummm, hey, Glenn, Oedipus was a fictional character who killed his father and farked his mother. His end was a tragic downfall of despair and fail. On second thought, I'm guessing your "project" is very aptly named. I'm not even sure what to make of the making out with liberals part.

At least when this show fails, we can say Oedipus wrecks.

Okay, you're a goddamned idiot. Just because you ignore the existence of something that annoys you does not mean it magically stops existing. That is why we teach our children the game of peekaboo so they learn their parents don't stop existing when they close their eyes. You are only contributing to the problem by making that argument so do not make it again.

You're right about the closet homo part, though.
 
2012-06-17 12:46:48 PM  
I, for one, am intrigued by the project and look forward watching a good show with strong, conservative values.

However, I'm a bit surprised that he managed to get Amy Grant during her new rapping career move.

To be fair, for once, instead of whining about it, he has expressed admiration and a desire to do something constructive of his own. I think his belief that he can produce and acceptable TV comedy/musical show goes way past the far northern borders of delusional, but hell - let him try.

Fart_Machine: The fixation that conservatives have over Glee goes beyond creepy.


Conservatives have always found that attacking popular targets gets them press. So Glee was an obvious choice for them. The thing is that the creator of the show knew that it would be controversial (Fox TV likes shows that are) so he's been consistently able to shoot down attacks by incorporating them into the show.

The thing is, the show's moment passed by the middle of the second season, so Glenn more than a bit tardy if he's still going after it now.

A few thoughts:

1) Beck is really looking like Breitbart a few months before he died. I wonder what the heart failure rate on Republican pundits is nowadays. I'm not wishing harm upon him, but seriously....compare the pics of the two, and then imagine how much internal damage is caused by maintaining that rage for your job. It must age a person drastically.

2) Beck's work ethic seems to be solid as he just signed a five year contract for millions of dollars, so it makes sense that he'll immediately start up the hate machine again.

3) The 'Oedipus' Project? I wonder how many pundits really believe this shiat. I don't think Beck does, especially since he's been silent right up until he got a shiatload of money again.

I'm convinced he's trolling. I used to listen to him when he was on 970 out of Tampa and while he was conservative, he was always reasonable and actually put on a great show because he didn't take himself too seriously. He was great at incorporating morning radio style bits with political drive time talk, and one of the bits that he'd regularly do is something he called "The Schlub Club." Basically, in the first hour of his show, he'd set up some kind of IRL trolling scenario where he'd take some absurd position on an issue and tell the people who were listening then to call in and carry on the bit. Then, when he hit the drive time hour, he'd go into the troll, people would call in who were in on it, everybody who got in their cars to head home had no idea that it was the Schlub Club, they'd think it was serious and call in completely outraged and Beck was excellent at keeping it going without breaking character, laughing, or giving any hint at all that he and some of his listeners were trolling the rest of his audience. It was always a hilarious bit of broadcasting and one of the things that made his show so great.

I think that somewhere along the line he realized that there was a ton of money to be made from never breaking character and just spouting the nuttiest stuff he could think of, and I suspect that he's just waiting for someone to figure out a way to call him on it.

Crabs_Can_Polevault: *shakes tiny fist at Guntram Shatterhand*

Same here, but look at Beck and look at the last few years of his life: he's got the stubble, the far away look, and his hair has gone pale. Something is up with his health, and I doubt his job is helping him maintain a healthy and relatively-stress free lifestyle. He does not look well, and that whole 'year off' thing might have been for health reasons. I'm not trying to be a dick or anything, but Beck does not look well at all.

rynthetyn: I think that somewhere along the line he realized that there was a ton of money to be made from never breaking character and just spouting the nuttiest stuff he could think of, and I suspect that he's just waiting for someone to figure out a way to call him on it.


Also, he was in radio, and that's a dying industry if there was one. A lot of the biggest names in radio aren't just in radio: Limbaugh has some political party ties and Howard Stern has been trying to get into other forms of media for years now before he lucked out with some reality show gig. There isn't much money in radio because content is cheap and the 'shock' paradigm is dying due to the Internet. Beck was probably smart in doing this punditry because it's big and easy money. The only real downside is that it's the last thing you will do in your career as you become obnoxious and toxic and your health starts to fail.

They're both pretty vile so I don't know much about either but Beck seems a LOT more calm and calculating. His emotional outbursts just look like acting to me.

While breitbart would squat directly over the turd launcher and let'er rip Beck prefers to let it bake in the bedpan then serve it to you frosted with a candle in the middle.

Good. I can hardly wait to see what a conservative, pro-bullying, anti-gay, abstinence promoting teen musical drama looks like. More than that, I'm curious as to how well it would do, ratings-wise.

Once again the Right attempts to coopt popular culture with predictably terrible results. These guys need to accept the fact that they have no sense of humor and no sense of rhythm.

Okay. He's calling this his "Oedipus" project because the Left will love him and not realize it. Indicating that those on the Left are Oedipus and he's Jocasta.

What he doesn't seem to realize was that Oedipus was a hero, wise if temperamental, and beloved by his people, and a great ruler. The tragedy was that he killed his father, not necessarily that he was farking his mother (people were weird back then).

Jocasta existed to hang herself later.

This. The guy sees inciting rage, making out with liberals, and having sex with his mother as the same thing? Have there, by chance, been a string of disappearances of women who look vaguely like Glenn Beck's mother in his neighborhood? Because if there have been, I think I know where the bodies are buried now.

The guy is going the David Icke path of being crazy, then just crazy enough to be a popular TV personality, then way, waaaaay too crazy for anyone to pay much attention anymore, then full-blown deranged beyond the ability to care for himself. His show will be a goldmine for future psychologists who want to see how mental disease eats away at a person in real time.

Glen Beck ! Thats all I know about him ...well also he gets peoples panties in a bunch . I don't know why , don't care . But some people are rabidly for or against him . And thats all I know on the subject .


Wow you're awesome because you don't know shiat about things and people that affect the world around you. You deserve a medal of an ostrich sticking it's head in the sand.

Glenn Beck says he's poised to destroy "Glee" with his own conservative, virtuous version of the hit TV show.

I didn't think Glee could get any worse, but there you go.

The thing is, the show's moment passed by the middle of the second season, so Glenn more than a bit tardy if he's still going after it now.


That's probably the idea. If it gets canceled soon he can take credit, regardless of the actual reasons.

So basically he wants a Glee series, but one that'd be supported by groups like Focus on the Family.. wait a second, didn't Invisible Children use their vaguely-sinister-Christian-group provided start-up money to make a Glee style video before their Kony 2012 thing caught on? This guy just has no original ideas at this point, it's like everything he does is just this incestuous mixing of different branches of conservative politics and media. I guess that explains the title though.

How to Manufacture Conservative Outrage

1. Pick an innocuous toy, musical trend, book, or pop culture artifact.
2. Wait until everybody is sick to death of hearing about it.
3. Declare it a tool of the Devil (promotes homosexuality).
4. Led a campaign against it, encouraging the demented church ladies of your sect to burn heaps of these vanities (and any books they can find, although let's be serious, these are the type of people who own books, let alone good books, so they'll be burning old copies of Valley of the Dolls.).

Theory One

Conservatives are so much behind the curve on fads, fashions and everything generally that they only react when something is already passé.

Theory Two
Conservatives intentionally wait until the kiddies are done with the latest fad and fashion so that outraged mothers can get a boost of smug self-righteous satisfaction by decluttering the kids' rooms of old unwanted toys, picture books, etc., without HAVING TO FIGHT THE KIDDIES TOOTH AND NAIL FOR THEIR CURRENT FAVS.

Guess which theory is the patented Brantgoose Theory(TM)?

Suck on it Evil Conservative Church Ladies (ECCLES).

Beck is cooking up a plan to create a counter-Glee -- a show that's just as well-produced and enjoyable to watch, but that pumps out conservative values to the youth of America

Like bullying, harassing sexually active teenagers, and marginalizing and brutalizing homosexuals?

The world is a big place, and Glenn Beck hasn't affected your day-to-day life or the world around you because he hasn't set his sights on it. On the other hand, if you are unfortunate enough to be a sociology professor of a small school in NY, that small group of very far right wing people Beck has control of may start seriously considering murdering you.

Glenn Beck is small, and he has small ideas and a small number of small-minded people listen to him. All of that is true. But all it takes is one small bullet in a small gun in someone's small hand to make all of that very important to your day-to-day life or the world around you. The smallness of it does not excuse it.

What is this push by conservatives to create a conservative version of everything? They're like the kids at school who want to show off how smart they are but don't get called on enough. What kind of mentality does it take to look at something and go, "Hm, well, it would be absolutely awesome, but it doesn't service my preconceived notions and deeply-held prejudices enough. I'll make my own version with more Jesus!"

And the result, as in, say, the Half Hour News Hour, is always like the kid who didn't get invited to the party shouting at everyone that he'll have his own party that's got ten times more awesome and everyone will love him more and they'll be sorry. It's one kid sitting at home in a party hat listening un-ironically to New Kids on the Block, trying to convince himself that he's the cool one and everyone else is a drip while secretly wondering why no one loves him.

Amen. I unfortunately have a window into this world lately due to having a new co-worker that is one of the Beck faithful. He is the most frightened, angry 29 year old person I have ever met in my life.

On second thought, I'm guessing your "project" is very aptly named. I'm not even sure what to make of the making out with liberals part.

You're setting a pretty low bar there. Like I said, Beck makes millions by lying and obfuscating the truth and making wild speculations in order to keep a gullible segment of the population afraid and angry enough to keep listening to him. This is his main focus, and the fact that he does some good here and there does not excuse him for his misdeeds.

THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT GLENN BECK RAPING AND MURDERING A GIRL IN 1990.

Dwight_Yeast: Forbidden Doughnut: I still can't figure out if Glenn Beck actually believes what he says, or is more like Rush Limbaugh. ( an "entertainer")

He's the only one of the Conservative pundits who I can't figure out. I am certain that he suffers from barely-controlled bipolar disorder.


At least he's not Mike Savage. I don't know how that guy is still on the air, either from not being fired/arrested for the venom and hatred he never hesitates to spew all over everything or from having a heart attack/coronary/stroke from how baby-punchingly angry he gets while spewing his hate and bile.

Seriously, his has Savage managed to avoid the news so far?

Eleke: Okay. He's calling this his "Oedipus" project because the Left will love him and not realize it. Indicating that those on the Left are Oedipus and he's Jocasta.

What he doesn't seem to realize was that Oedipus was a hero, wise if temperamental, and beloved by his people, and a great ruler. The tragedy was that he killed his father, not necessarily that he was farking his mother (people were weird back then).

Jocasta existed to hang herself later.


It's like how people describe a couple's love as Romeo and Juliet, forgetting that they were children of warring families who made a lot of stupid decisions and ended up dead. All people see is "Oh, look how much they love each other!".

Maybe be you'd be a better person if you did something for the homeless, even if you are trolling. I'm sure they wouldn't mind.


And you might be smarter if you looked at more than one post. I was pointing out something 2 assholes.

Nice. I love it when those guys make an appearance in a thread.

I'm trying to think of what a conservative rapper that would hang out with Glenn Beck might call himself.

Nogayz Raygun.
M.C. Bibulz
Lil Gubmint
Busta Bama
Big Daddy Boehnerz

Dr Dreidel?

/oy! oy! oy! oy!


Is this close enough?

"But it's brilliantly done. It's produced, brilliantly. Its music, brilliant. Its acting, brilliant. Its cinematography, brilliant. All of it!"

Isn't this the WORST kind of pandering? At least if you're trying to pander to a redneck conservative audience that wants to believe everything you tell them to, don't give them an out. At this point you're just outing yourself as a closet Gleek.

Holy crap - Glenn Beck isn't even smart enough to be a good bigot. How could he possibly defend himself against the accusations that he raped and murdered a black teenager in 1990?

Wait, Glenn Beck has been charged with rape and murder? WTF!

The most likely explanation for his little crusade: Glenn's wife walked in on him wearing her underwear and makeup and singing "Don't Stop Believing" to the show.

I'm convinced he's trolling. I used to listen to him when he was on 970 out of Tampa and while he was conservative, he was always reasonable and actually put on a great show because he didn't take himself too seriously. He was great at incorporating morning radio style bits with political drive time talk, and one of the bits that he'd regularly do is something he called "The Schlub Club." Basically, in the first hour of his show, he'd set up some kind of IRL trolling scenario where he'd take some absurd position on an issue and tell the people who were listening then to call in and carry on the bit. Then, when he hit the drive time hour, he'd go into the troll, people would call in who were in on it, everybody who got in their cars to head home had no idea that it was the Schlub Club, they'd think it was serious and call in completely outraged and Beck was excellent at keeping it going without breaking character, laughing, or giving any hint at all that he and some of his listeners were trolling the rest of his audience. It was always a hilarious bit of broadcasting and one of the things that made his show so great..


So, in other words, he was stealing Phil Hendrie's bit?

Beck is in that uncomfortable age group in shock/talk radio that may not make it to retirement. The first generation guys like Stern and Limbaugh and Imus will make it to retirement. But the genre itself is going away, and the people in it have a finite shelf-life.
 
2012-06-18 07:28:10 AM  
I came to say "Glenn who?" and then saw that several people beat me to it. This pleases me.

I don't think having enough money is going to be a problem for Beck. He had a pretty good 2-year run hustling the Fox Network and the teabaggers who bought his books. Unless he sinks all his money into that TV network he's been trying to launch, he'll be fine financially.

It's the attention he misses, though. He went from being the belle of the conservative ball to a fringe lunatic so unhinged that even Fox doesn't want anything to do with him. So, as a result, he's tripling down on the batshiat crazy.

Right wingers hating teh gheys. Specifically Glenn Beck thinks gheys are icky and Glee should stop putting those tasty, tempting teenage boys on his Jesus Box.

And yet he still had higher ratings than any MSNBC that aired anytime of the day.

A 'Glee' preaching 'conservative values'? The potential trainwreck has me licking my chops in anticipation.

It will be the musical version of Fox News' "The 1/2 Hour News Hour."


And Glee isn't even liberal. It's only political stance is "be nice to teh gays", which apparently offends Beck so much he wants to create counter-programming. Fark you, Beck.

Well, he hasn't been charged with anything, yet. People are just asking questions. Most tellingly, he's never denied it. It's as if he has something to hide.

He's actually right. In terms of cable viewership O'Reilly isn't that hot. Especially when you consider that his average viewer age is around 70. Not exactly what advertisers want.
