Glenn Beck Declares His Overwhelming Courage

If you have to declare yourself to be a hero, it’s a pretty clear sign that you haven’t done anything heroic or not. On his show recently, he went off about how his children and grandchildren can be proud that he so bravely fought against the overwhelming forces aligned against him. It’s really quite an amusing bit of hubris.

    Didn’t he declare yesterday he was going to run away and hide in Canada?

  • Larry


    Yes, but he will do it bravely

  • colnago80

    Isn’t that what is usually referred to as paranoia?

  • Dave, ex-Kwisatz Haderach

    Brave Sir Glenny ran away.

    Bravely ran away, away.

    When danger reared it’s ugly head

    He bravely turned his tail and fled.

    Yes Brave Sir Glenny turned about

    And gallantly he chickened out.

    Bravely taking to his feet

    He beat a very brave retreat.

    Oh bravest of the brave, Sir Glenny.

    “I want my children and grandchildren to say… this is what my family did”

    Be careful what you wish for Glen.

  • Who Knows?

    I wonder if his children, and grand children will say to themselves, what a pretentious asshole. Like I just did.

  • frankb

    I am not brave. I am too afraid to click on the video. The stupid would burn.

  • Hairy Chris, blah blah blah etc

    Well played, Dave @ 4!

    It is incomprehensible how heroic it is to sit on a set in a TV studio and spout nonsense totally shielded from any consequences while milking the rubes for millions of dollars. This man is a hero only in his mind and a small band of delusional fanatics

  • WTF is he wearing on his lapel? Is he some sort of sky captain of his own imagination?

  • I find it rather pitiful. What a sad, pathetic man Beck is. He needs his mommy to pat him on the head, give him a cookie and tell him what a brave boy he is for not crying.

  • Abby Normal

    Wait, he made it through a broadcast without crying?

  • raven

    C’mon give him credit.

    Beck wasn’t afraid to assume his followers were dumb and incapable of any sort of thought, much less rational thought. And he was correct.

    In a few years, he has made ca. $100 million and his media empire is growing rapidly. He gets paid huge amounts of money for what is basically babbling like a loon every day.

    He is though, probably afraid of stating anything true or realistic. It could cause his income to drop like a stone.

  • raven

    One wonders who has made Beck so rich for doing so little. It’s a mystery.

    I only know one Glenn Beck fan. He is very devoted. He is also very old and in an advanced stage of some sort of age related cognitive decline.

  • grumpyoldfart

    His family will wait until the will is read before they decide whether or not their money-maker was a hero.

  • WTF is he wearing on his lapel? Is he some sort of sky captain of his own imagination?

    And why is there a Union Jack on the floor of the studio?


  • Some days, I think we should just get it over with and send assassination squads after these guys. Since they already accuse their opponents of it anyway, there’s not much additional harm it could do. And then we could see just how brave they really are.

  • colnago80

    Is this a great country or what. In what other country in the world could talentless assholes like Beck and Limbaugh become multimillionaires.

  • pacal

    No doubt Glen Beck had a cigarette after this rant. He probably was quite spent.

  • No One

    What ever happened to Glen’s gulch, or the man on the moon?

  • Usernames are smart

    Jen Senko is doing a Kickstarter (successfully funded!) against this kind of garbage.

    Check out her intro video at the link; you might see Mr. Beck’s … elocution in a different way.

    I’m not sure Glenn Beck is amusing so much as he is depressing. His paranoid fantasies and delusions of grandeur are a sign of something seriously wrong in his head.
