…he’s in it for the Money
The Buddha said, “An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.”
What’s worse than the woefully misinformed Teabaggers taking their programmed ignorance to the streets to rail against the social safety net many of them rely on to live, is their de-facto high priest of histrionics, Glenn Beck, who has now openly admitted to Forbes magazine that his campaign to cultivate fear and incite civil unrest is motivated purely by his sociopathic quest for the unholy dollar.
A Forbes profile and cover story by Lacey Rose breaks down $32 million that Beck’s “Brand” brought in last year – with the least of his cash-cows being his Faux News program where his “average-Joe” mouth-breathing followers gather to get their marching orders on what “cause” their corporate and economic masters expect them to rally to next.
“I could give a flying crap about the political process.” Beck boasted.
How unfortunate for normal people (non-Republicans) that creating a world that works for ALL socio-economic classes isn’t as pathologically profitable as running cover for the economic elite while they are busy turning “The Land of the Free” into “The United States of Serfs and Lords.”
|Featured on the cover of the magazine, Beck haughtily stands in a suit covered in chalked dollar signs – clearly harkening to his famous chalk board, where his disjointed charts and graphs gives his revisionist history lessons the veneer of truth for his woefully misinformed followers.
Beck continues, “We’re an entertainment company.” No doubt confident that his stupid-enough-to-vote-Republican followers won’t let the fact that Beck is outright advertising they are being played get in the way of him riding their dumb-asses to the bank.
The lies are constant as he twists the very policies that helped create the most upwardly mobile middle class in the history of civilization into suspicious, unAmerican plots. In reality, Beck’s agenda is to ensure that the super rich – like himself – can continue to thrive in a neo-feudal America where a small economic elite control a large and compliant group of working poor unfettered by the only institution powerful enough to reign them in – our government of “We The People.”
For example, Beck has been calling Net Neutrality a “hostile takeover” of America and the Internet, when in reality it is the way that the elites will further choke the flow of reality-based information to the huddled masses – and thus continue to solidify themselves high in the seats of power. See more of his lies at Politifact.
Eventually the propaganda won’t come fast and furious enough to drown out the reality of the dismal lives Beck duped them into helping create. Then they will know they’ve been the useful idiots in a masterful game of chess instigated by the economic elite. By that time, Beck and his wealthy compatriots would have already escaped behind the walls of their gated communities and the rest of us will be left still fighting over the scraps that fall from their tables.
While Beck may continue to justify his lies by insisting they are purely for entertainment, with the epidemic of right-wing threats and violence, the grand finale has repercussions in reality.
But Glenn Beck is a very sick man from a sick family with a history of serious emotional and mental problems, not the Teabagger Thomas Paine, he likes to pretend he is.
In fact, rather than a portrait of Thomas Paine (who was an enlightened liberal, by the way), Beck’s office is covered with portraits of his TRUE heroes – Jack Benny, Paul Harvey, Ronald Reagan, Bob Hope, Walt Disney and Orson Welles.
It’s no coincidence that Glenn Beck Inc., was formally known as Mercury Radio Arts – after Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre on the Air – because clearly Beck is purposefully perpetrating the greatest media hoax on malleable morons since Orson Wells unintentionally had his listeners literally escaping monsters invented for the sake of “entertainment.”
