Beck Slams ‘Lonely’ People who Question His ‘Illness’

Last week Glenn Beck announced that he had been diagnosed with “adrenal fatigue” by a “chiropractic neurologist” who cured him of a whole range of mysterious symptoms. Many doctors have stepped forward to call bullshit on his story, saying that the symptoms he said he had are not related to adrenal fatigue and that “chiropractic neurology” is pure quackery. On Facebook, he lashed out at those sad and lonely people who doubt his story:

Also, I have read some pretty nasty things about how I am faking my illness. Yep. That’s me. I am making it all up. So incredible. Anyway, I just want you to know that soon, I will not be holding my sweet wife back from answering these posts herself. You don’t want a piece of her, because she is about to give it to you. . Of course, I might just be making her up as well. Maybe I am not even married, I am just saying I am to sell gold rings.

I love it when The Lord gives me the wisdom and peace to just laugh at how people treat us. Even better is when he also couples it with real empathy.

I first laugh and then wonder how dark and lonely their life must be that they really believe that people are that evil that they would actually live this big of a lie over multiple years. Then it hits you. How lonely they must be that they want and need to pick fights just to have someone notice them.

It is sad.

Yeah, it’s terrible when people question the medical claims of others, right Glenn? I mean, like you did with Teresa Heinz Kerry when she was taken to the hospital and Hillary Clinton when she had a blood clot and a concussion:

Yesterday, Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Secretary of State John Kerry, was rushed to this hospital after apparently suffering from some sort of seizure … but Glenn Beck isn’t buying it because he just doesn’t trust anything that the government says, which is why he suspects that the entire thing was orchestrated as a distraction from the “huge scandal” that Secretary Kerry was on his boat while a military coup took place in Egypt last week.

While it may be true that Heinz Kerry (or, as Beck called her, “Mrs. Ketchup”) did end up in the hospital, Beck “can’t give you any sympathy now because you’ve lied to us too many times” … just as when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hospitalized with a blood clot last year in an effort to cover-up Benghazi.

Though Clinton’s blood clot was tied to a concussion she received after she fainted while suffering from the flu, Beck said “if she really had some weird thing in the hospital, then it should prohibit her from ever becoming president.

“She shouldn’t be President of the United States if she going into the hospital for some sort of heart condition or brain condition or whatever she was in the hospital for,” Beck said, “or was that just a scam so that we didn’t talk about [Benghazi]”?

Obviously, Glenn Beck’s mystery illness is an attempt to distract us from Benghazi. Or from the fact that he repeatedly called an innocent man a terrorist with no evidence whatsoever and is in danger of losing a huge defamation suit as a result. Or from all the other ridiculous lies he’s told over the last few years.

    Hmmm… what a dilemma. Who should I believe:

    a) Actual, qualified Doctors of Medicine with decades of experience between them OR

    b) A notorious liar and fraud (and the Leach who is bleeding him dry)?

    Decisions, decisions.




    Notice poor ol’ Glenny can’t even carry his own load (of bullshit), he’s gotta get some else to do it for him. LAME!!

  • Sastra

    Notice how Beck quickly glides from addressing scientific critiques of the cause of his symptoms into dealing with angry denials that he has any symptoms at all, that he’s ‘making it up’ and there’s nothing wrong with him. This is typical in alternative medicine (as well as typical Beck.) Substitute a case based on reason regarding whether “adrenal fatigue” is a genuine illness for a personal attack on them.

    Now they’re on firmer, higher ground. The framework has shifted from the real topic to sick people having insult added to injury. Throw out the scientific question, make it personal, and bid for even more sympathy.

    This may be the first time that I have seen the name Glenn Beck and the word empathy in the same place.

  • dingojack

    alanb – I think perhaps there is some confusion here between ’empathy’ and ‘projection’.

    Is that the same “The Lord” that needs protection from Warrior Santa Claus?

    How lonely they must be that they want and need to pick fights just to have someone notice them.

    Oh for fuck’s sake! Blech has made an entire career out of picking fights with people over insanely inane things just to get noticed. Is there a word that means “mega-projection”?

  • anubisprime

    If the defamation suit proceeds then by sentencing time …Glen might mysteriously have a devastating relapse back into suffering severe mortal martyrdom and throw his ‘poor, crippled and sorry carcass on to the mercy of the court, because they would never convict a jeebus drooling, tell it how it is, national hero, white-man, afflicted by demons… that would be un-American!

    Glenn Beck: I Might Be Going Blind

    www .huffingtonpost. com/…/glenn-beck-i-might-be-goi_n_651235.html

    Jul 19, 2010 – Glenn Beck said he has learned he could go blind within a year.

    Speaking before a crowd of 6000 on his “American Revival” tour in Salt Lake …

    1. Beck claimed he was going blind within a year. In 2010. It hasn’t happened yet and isn’t going to happen by now.

    2. A few days ago Beck claimed he was “cured” of his condition that causes him to say crazy things all the time. That “cure” lasted less than a day.

    3. Glenn Beck is accumulating a history of making up imaginary serious health conditions. They come from the same source as all his other news stories. He just Makes It All Up!!!

    It doesn’t take much to be a hero to the right wingnuts.

  • roggg

    If Beck says he’s afflicted by an illness that causes neurological symptoms and makes him say crazy things, who am I to disagree? The evidence suggests there may be something to it. The exact diagnosis? Yeah, I’m more skeptical there. He’s cured now? I see no evidence of that.

    Ah….ding ding ding…

    Mystery illness…defamation lawsuit…now things are starting to tie together.

    “It wasn’t me, your honor! My adrenal was fatigued.”

    Case dismissed.

    “It wasn’t me, your honor! My adrenal was fatigued.”

    Case dismissed.

    Is it possible he used that defense back in 1990? Why won’t Beck release his medical records so that we can get to the bottom of this? I’m just asking questions…

  • freehand

    Wait – has the master scammer been himself scammed? With at least two documented fake illnesses, Glen has proven himself to be a goldmine. If they work with him, support him with their imaginary reasons behind his imaginary diseases and provide cures on call, they can skim a little something off his substantial cash flow on a regular basis.
