Never bet on the end of the world, It only happens once. Even if you're right, you'll never collect. - Art Cashin

Preach on you crazy motherf*cker.

I think in Glenn Beck speak "end of the world" means "end of the grift".
 
2020-10-20 10:02:15 AM  
This sets him up to start a new religion.

I'm guessing he hasn't actually watched any of the Walking Dead series, or he would know what happens to survivalist ranches when societies collapse.

Who dug up this tired old grifter from the recesses of obscurity? The marks dropped his ass when he missed the Trump train and moved on to younger, dumber grifters like Pim Tool and Bingo-Supremo.

I've always enjoyed this Jefferson quote about the "end times":

'It is between fifty and sixty years since I read it [the Apocalypse], and I then considered it merely the ravings of a maniac, no more worthy nor capable of explanation than the incoherences of our own nightly dreams.'

-Thomas Jefferson, letter to General Alexander Smyth, Jan. 17, 1825
Of all the books included in The Bible, this one stands alone as...."wtf?"    I mean Jesus was pretty clear that no one knows when he'll return except The Father.  So then you want to turn around and say "oh yeah Jesus said that but this loon TOTALLY got a vision of what it's going to be like with lots of hints of when it would be".  So did Jesus lie?  Did an infallible God change his mind?  OR....is the ranting of a crazy person included in the Bible?

I honestly don't know what he's biatching about.
I feel fine.
 
2020-10-20 10:18:26 AM  
I'm willing to go along with the end of the world, but only if I'll finally get some peace and quiet from Trump's constant crying.
 
2020-10-20 10:19:27 AM  
This guy is on the Mt. Rushmore of The Multiverse's Biggest Assholes, along with Jim Bakker, Alex Jones and Glenn Beck again.
 
2020-10-20 10:20:10 AM  
Just like he allegedly ended that poor young girl's life in the 1990s. People are saying, anyway.

9/12-2 or Tea Bagger 2.

It will be more "feel better" marching by right-wingers where they are against a mix of everything not-right-wing (lots of it made up) until Biden solidifies policy then they'll be against whatever that is.

I'm hoping Biden's main immediate policy is limiting powers and strengthening rules of accountability.  That way we can see the right-wingers be against it and make a myriad of stupid reasons for *why* they are against it.

Glenn Beck is still around huh? Is he doing a podcast now or something?
 
2020-10-20 10:21:56 AM  
There's a name I forgot about. Until today. Thanks for nothing, subby.
 
2020-10-20 10:22:21 AM  
Well, to be fair, you can only be right once.

You left out Rush Limbaugh, Rupert Murdoch, Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, Sean Hannity.....

We're going to need a bigger mountain.
 
2020-10-20 10:24:22 AM  
Wasn't he supposedly recovering from a mental illness that made him think like an extremist?
 
2020-10-20 10:24:33 AM  
In the Rush Limbaugh thread, I was going to ask.... "Whatever happened to Glenn Beck?" And here he is. Thanks Fark!

"He went on to promote the survivalist camp "Fortitude Ranch," which announced they're opening "their facilities for a collapse disaster." The "ranch" offers a membership for $1,000 annually where people can flee to in the event of society's collapse or rapture. They have 12 locations in the United States, all with "an easy day's drive.""

Imagine that. Society collapses and some lucky folks get to spend the following months or years with a bunch of Glenn Beck fans who are dumb enough to have given him a thousand bucks.

I'd be happily eaten by the zombies at that point, I think.

abhorrent1: Glenn Beck is still around huh? Is he doing a podcast now or something?


Yeah, but since he can't get on a real network (even Faux News), he more or less started his own 'news agency' and still biatching about Obama
 
2020-10-20 10:27:01 AM  
So, guy, give me your worldly belongings. Well, 95% of them. Keep enough to keep you dry and fed until then.
 
2020-10-20 10:27:59 AM  
You know, no one knocks REM for their failed end of the world prediction.

Well figure from a practical standpoint if you always predict the world will end you'll be right if it does. That said what do you expect? Win a prize? Nothing gained what so ever. Waste of effort worrying with it.

Well he was trying to set himself up as a never Trumper to make money off that grift but failed because for years he helped make Trump or someone like him inevitable. I even saw an interview with him a few years ago where he was trying to deflect any blame off of him for the monster he helped to create. Guess his never Trump grift never panned out because he is all on team Trump now.

Still shilling food buckets, I guess. preparewithglenn.com

Always in it for the cash.

Stupid human. He thinks that if we don't get to do everything we want to do, forever, and steal some money in the process, it's the "end of the world."

Too bad a lot of Farkers think exactly the same way.

Yes, but I hear it pairs beautifully with Jim Bakker's soup
 
2020-10-20 11:03:57 AM  
I turned on the local News/Talk station one day to try to find out why traffic on the main road near me was heavier than normal. and heard Beck going on about how Antifa and BLM anarchists are being bankrolled by Evil Mastermind George Soros. it sounded like it was straight off of a Qanon website.

What about Rush Limbaugh?  Pretty sure he's up there.

Go back to your chalkboard you lying right wing dipshiat.
 
2020-10-20 11:22:12 AM  
He's not wrong though. He's just leaving out the part where his side has been actively working towards the end of the world for the past 40+ years.
 
2020-10-20 11:22:22 AM  
Glenn Beck still exists? I thought he was shamed out awhile back due to his breakdowns and such.

Actually, I think we should hope he picks it.

So he's giving away all his money to the poor and just keeping enough debt to live on.
