We Did It, But We Can't Let Up Now

Remember last week, on July 29, when we did the call to arms to boycott the sponsors of Glenn Beck?

Well, it is working...WAHOO!

Fox News' Glenn Beck is feeling the consequences of his controversial comments on the July 28 episode of "Fox and Friends," when he said that Barack Obama was a "racist" who had a "deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture."

According to TVNewser, Beck advertisers Proctor and Gamble, Lawyers.com and Progressive Insurance have all pulled their ads from Beck's 5PM ET show. This comes in the wake of groups like ColorOfChange.org's efforts to get companies to distance themselves from Beck.

Fox News told TVNewser that the advertisements were simply moved to other time slots on Fox News, and thus had no effect on the network's revenue (which, incidentally, was a bright spot in News Corp's otherwise dismal earnings).

Watch Beck's original comment's here.


Now, if you haven't seen his latest, you need to know he still hasn't learned his lesson and is still spewing his hatred. Today, he had someone sitting with him, pretending to be Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and then pretended to poison them. Yes, he was saying he would like to kill the Speaker of the House.

I just believe that is over the top and I would think that would constitute a threat and should be against the law. Maybe I am wrong. Watch this here:



This man is just about as low as it gets. Some say this is all an act, I am not sure if it is or not..but if it is..he is damn good and needs to win an Oscar for sure.

Beck is a congenital tool. That doesn't mean he's absolved of his idiocy, it just means he's predisposed to willfully making stupid statements. And he will never stop, no matter the consequences. In fact if this boycott works he'll just blame his problems on the left, like he's done all along. Just more fodder for his deranged hatemongering.
