It's about time Glenn Beck came out.

Now if only he'd open up about what happened back in 1990.

Glenn Beck is still on the air? Wow, he hasn't been relevant in years. I guess he's just screaming for attention again.

I'm waiting for Art Bell to come back to XM radio with his new show next month.

At least he's entertaining.

Well, he was 20 years ago, anyway. Time will tell if he's still got it or not.

Is he still dodging questions about raping and murdering that poor young girl? Makes you wonder.

He declared himself a rodeo clown years ago, subby:

At the same time, though, he says he is an entertainer. "I'm a rodeo clown," he said in an interview, adding with a coy smile, "It takes great skill."

When he was a crappy top 40 DJ in Connecticut?  Didn't he have a drug problem?

As if high school didn't suck enough,I had to listen to his show every morning before getting the bus.

Sometimes I genuinely wonder if he really believes what he espouses, at least with Rush and Hannity I know for a fact it's a farking act and they're doing it for the lulz and cash. With Beck though?....idk something tells me this guy genuinely thinks what he says is true.

And that's farking scary

He was making fun of the looney lefts false outrage over the rodeo clown mask. In the dopey democrat world, one does not make fun or speak negatively of barry. Lest one feels the jackboot of progressive fascism.
If you're on the right and disagree at all with anything barry says or does, you're a racist. If you're on the left and you disagree then you experience the full force of obamoron wrath and harassment. This keeps the scared democrats in line.
Where were these same people that are so offended by a stupid clown in a barry obama mask when people poked fun at previous presidents? It's ridiculous how the left can destroy someone for something so trivial. Yet they do it all the time.
It's so funny watching the obamorons try and defend their child king. They lie and swear the color of his skin has nothing to do with his position but it plays such a big part in why they elected him and how they feel about him. But every day they prove just how thin that skin is.
Democrats should grow up and allow people to disagree without threats of retribution.
A presidents administration needs a lot of honesty and transparency but people are too afraid to speak out with this guy for fear of his new wave of brown shirts protecting dear leader.
Grow up libs, it was a rodeo clown in Montana. Not the grassy knoll.

It never ceases to amaze me how much conservative pundits and politicians always want to adopt the identities of tough, working-class professions they would actually condescend to perform. But if Glen Beck really wants to stand by those remarks my cousin is a VP with PBR (and a former clown himself), and I'm sure we could find a rodeo for GB to work. Vegas maybe? I'd love to see that farker gored by a bull...

Rodeo clowns need to be physically fit, brave, able to react quickly and calmly in a crisis, and to be willing to risk themselves for others. They have a serious job, and are worth of respect.

Glenn Beck is the  opposite of a rodeo clown.

My parents do too. The thing is, if you cut through the BS shock jock and crazy nonsense, some of what Beck is very insightful and actually makes sense. Granted, it can be REALLY hard to ignore the BS, but Beck isn't nearly as insane or stupid as people make him out to be.

And occasionally rodeo clowns listen to Glenn Beck all the time, and wear Obama masks while performing. There are many layers to the Beck-rodeo clown relationship.

2013-08-15 12:13:56 PM  
I haven't listened to Glenn Beck in years, but I did back during W.'s presidency. At the time I mistakenly thought he was genuine. He was clearly a right wing guy but he had severe trust issues for the republican president. He portrayed himself as a guy who was about truth above politics. Then of course Obama appeared over the horizon and he quickly showed his true colors.

Anyway the point of the above story is that I clearly remember him referring to himself as a rodeo clown back then, fairly frequently, so what is this? Is this really about the Obama clown thing still? The only times I have heard about this is from right wingers stating how they can't believe the libby libs are flipping out so much about it. But I have not seen a single example of a libby lib actually flipping out over it...

As with 99% of the things conservatives claim libs are flipping out over. They don't check to see if the left is actually flipping out about those things. They just listen to each other and get themselves all frothed up. It would be amusing if it wasn't so irritating.

Blah blah blah.  What I find curious is the outrage that existed 10 years ago when conservatives pundits were appalled that George W. Bush was being referred to as "Bush" instead of "President Bush".  I'm certain those same pundits wouldn't be the same ones referring to our sitting president as "Obama" or "Barry" or "Barack Hussein Obama" today, right?

The "I was only joking. What's the mattah? Ain't you got no sense of humor?" card gets more use than the Old Maid in this political game of Happy Clown Families.

Glenn Beck has declared himself a clown more times than he has wept like a little girl with a headless Cabbage Patch doll. And that's a LOT of water under the bridge of his nose, I can tell yah.

If you're referring to the rumor that Glenn Beck helped rape and kill a girl in 1990, that's just a vicious pack of lies. there is no evidence that Glenn Beck helped rape and kill a girl in 1990. I don't even know how these rumors get started, claiming that Glenn Beck helped rape and kill a girl in 1990. If someone walks up to you and says "Did you know that Glenn Beck helped rape and kill a girl in 1990?" just tell them that it's only unfounded gossip that Glenn Beck helped rape and kill a girl in 1990.

I'm sure you're just trolling, but there was no "outrage" at the rodeo clown thing. It was distasteful, but nothing worth getting angry about. You know, like someone at Macy's saying "Happy holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas." Now that's worth being up in arms.
