SAYS IT ALL: Current TV rejected Glenn Beck purchase offer over ideology, accepted Al Jazeera offer

Everything you need to know is in this quote:

“Based on Hyatt’s quote, the owners of Current TV didn’t want Glenn to purchase Current TV and put TheBlaze in millions of home across the country because they didn’t agree with his point of view. They must not feel the same way about Al Jazeera…”

GLENNBECK.COM – Late Wednesday, Brian Stelter with the New York Times broke the news that Al Jazeera would be acquiring progressive cable news network Current TV. Al Jazeera had been seeking entry into the U.S. market, and the deal will allow them to put their own programming on in place of Current on televisions across the country. But the Wall Street Journal has uncovered an interesting piece of information: Glenn Beck and TheBlaze TV tried to purchase the network and were rejected.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Mr. Hyatt said they agreed to sell to Al Jazeera in part because “Al Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current,” including “to give voice to those whose voices are not typically heard” and “to speak truth to power.” Other suitors who didn’t share Current’s ideology were rebuffed. Glenn Beck’s The Blaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,” according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

Based on Hyatt’s quote, the owners of Current TV didn’t want Glenn to purchase Current TV and put TheBlaze in millions of home across the country because they didn’t agree with his point of view. They must not feel the same way about Al Jazeera, a news organization that ran an op-ed comparing Glenn to a terrorist.

Glenn has taken issue with Al Jazeera in the past, noting their connections to Islamic extremism and their anti-American leanings in their reporting.

Had TheBlaze successfully purchased Current TV, the current lineup of TheBlaze TV would have replaced the existing progressive programming in 59 million homes in the United States.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Time Warner Cable announced they would be dropping Al Jazeera America as a result of the change in ownership.

    Glenn Beck and The Blaze is hot (pun is intended)… Al Gore and Current TV is not.

    Buster Poindexter Hot Hot Hot –


    • Don

      Gore may not be “hot”, but now he has enough money to resume terrorizing masseuses in hotel rooms after midnight. Both he and Slick Willie have always had the morals of sex-starved alley cats. Tipper busted Al’s chops while Shrillary has a whole different agenda when it comes to Slick Willie.

      • keninil

        He needs to move to Saudi Arabia, it will control his alcoholism and feed his need for abusing women.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    Oh goody! Islamifascist propaganda media here in America. I can’t wait! The fact that Current TV refused Beck’s offer just reveals how they reflect the thinking and motivations of the “progressive” authoritarian globalists. It makes sense that Al Jazeera would reflect their “point of view” because why else would Current TV accept their offer? They both suck up to and support those who control, oppress, and enslave. They are on the side of those who steal freedom and liberty from those who seek such things. Pack of worthless [email protected][email protected]$ all.

    • Don

      A lot of people do not know that if Gore had carried his home state of Tennessee in 2000, the vote in Florida would have been irrelevant and he would’ve beaten Bush. The people of Tennessee have never questioned Gore’s intentions, because they are abundantly clear. What they do question is his sanity. Gore has been an anti-American babbling fool most of his life. I have always thought he would’ve been the worst president in our history…..until Obama.

      • cabensg

        Couldn’t agree more. I do think we could have gotten Gore impeached however being as he is a white guy.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          The environmentalist kook fringe of the global authoritarians (including the environmentalist hypocrites in Hollyweird) would have made sure that Gore’s impeachment would have been blocked. After all, Gore is out to save the Earth from ourselves. Hail Captain Planet Gore! Gaia be praised!

    • bobemakk

      I hope Current fails miserably just like Air America. Al Gore is a traitor to US. He is a drunken, money loving, tree hugger who is a hypocrite as well.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        If Current went the way of Airhead America, that would suit me fine. Gore is a disgraceful creature. He knows he is misleading the world with his ginned-up junk science fecal matter. Too bad the idiots in Congress agreed with him and passed that asinine light bulb legislation.

  • Why does this remind me a little of when Rush tried to buy the St. Louis Rams?

    I’m not sure of what to say or think about this. It’s a private company so I guess they can sell to whomever they want to, but it’s pretty pathetic when a terrorist network “news” aligns more with their views than an American Citizen. It’s pretty freaking pitiful when a terrorist news organization can be so welcomed into a nation which has and is seeing our soldiers die fighting against these same groups who use Al Jazeera as a platform? I gotta wonder,how Americans would have felt if right after WW2 one of the News stations was sold to Nazi sympathizers rather than an American company?

    Don’t know how this song really goes along with this story in particular, but as everything that’s been going on in just the past few months…. I had this song on my mind again tonight.

    • NYGino

      As usual, great post ABC. You start with Rush and end with Rush!

      “Screaming demons
      Dressed in Kingly guise

      Beating down the multitudes
      And scoffing at the wise”

      Says a lot about those currently running (ruining?) our government.

      BTW, Neil Peart……….one of the best.

      • You are correct (NYGIno). Both Rush’s are lovers of freedom.

        “You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
        If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
        You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
        I will choose a path that’s clear
        I will choose freewill”

        Thus endeth the lesson.

        • NYGino

          Amen brother, amen. Being a new guest to TRS you probably don’t know AmericanborninCanada, a true Patriot and music lover (among many other things) I have no doubts she also saw the parallels. Welcome.

          • Ditto. Welcome to TRS… The lounge is over there… Through that door is the bar, and you’re expected to buy everyone a free round of drinks seeing as you’re new! 😉

            • Orangeone

              But not necessarily the alcoholic variety 🙂

              • True. Whatever they ask for. Be it water or stronger water! 😉

                • Orangeone

                  Still water or fizzy water as I used to say when I traveled to Germany and England.

        • Welcome to The Right Scoop Hunter!
          Ps- I peeked and noticed you’re on twitter. I just started following you lol. 🙂

          • I peeked at your peek and am now following Hunter too…

            A duck and a wolf following a hunter? that don’t sound right?! 😉

            • LOL DOH! no, that doesnt quite sound good…. ‘specially for the duck! 😉
              Yer quick this morning Wolfie!

              • NYGino

                He sure is!

              • LOL!! But you’re no ordinary duck and this wolf respects you… Besides that beak of yours is sharp! 😉

            • Orangeone

              Make that a duck, a wolf and a cat!

            • crosshr

              lol, wonderful day folks !

          • Orangeone

            You stalker you!

        • Orangeone

          Count yourself stalked on Twitter by the kitty too!

      • I have to wonder… when I wrote that comment at about 2:30 this morning I had 2 likes by 3 when I finally made it to bed. Now 1 have 17 lol. Fess up y’all, you love Canadian bands don’t you!

        But yeah, I’ve had that song on my mind a lot and Neil Peart is excellent. (Still like Phil Collins and John Bonham though!)

        Mornin’ NY!

        • NYGino

          Top ‘O the Morning ABC. John Bonham!, musical, humorous, inventive and tons of energy. Collins, I’m a big fan of early Genesis. “Selling England by the Pound”, I’m on a desert island with only five albums that’s one of them.

          • I knew it! I don’t know many drummers who don’t love early Genesis stuff. Selling England by the Pound and Three Sides Live are 2 of my most favorite albums of all time. 🙂
            Speaking of Bonham, I remember a few years ago I was visiting a friend. Her husband was just finishing installing those huge speakers in his car- you know the ones that rattle every bolt off the car? Anyway, he was into hip hop crap or whatever it’s called and was testing out the speakers. I got my CD with Moby Dick out, told him- “Here, try this… but crank it up.” He put that in and he was converted on the spot lol. I’m kind’a surprised you didn’t hear it on your side it was so awesomely loud! 😀

            • NYGino

              HaHaHaHaHa!!! I never saw another drummer even pretend to be Ahab and try to chase that whale! You amaze me. There’s probably one in a thousand that have even heard of “Selling England by the Pound”. I’m pretty sure you’re a YES fan also.

              • Oh YES!!

                I have to admit, I always loved drummers too- but me having to take organ lessons when I was a kid, I always focus too on keyboards 😉 So Tony Banks of course is one of my favorites, which is why I love
                from 3 sides live!! I listened to this so much trying (and almost succeeding!) getting the solo down I wore out that spot on the tape lol!

                This is the most awesome ever. I SO wish I could have seen them live.

                PS- and Cinema Show and Battle of Epping Forest !!! 😀

                • NYGino

                  “Dancing with the Moonlit Knight” (Romeo gets lucky)

                  I’ve seen Genesis and Yes in New York a couple of times. Oh! and ELP, backed by a FULL orchestra. Would have asked you to go with me but I didn’t have your number, and then again you were probably two years old.

                • LOL, I still would have gone! 😀 Sigh, they were one band I so would have loved to have seen. Maybe that’s why I love their live stuff so much. Listening right now to Firth of Fifth right now.
                  I did however see Pink Floyd ( won tickets off the radio!) and it was AWESOME! 😀
                  I’ve seen a lot of bands live but Genesis would make life complete.

                • You’re such a romantic 😉 I’m going to listen to that one next. Boy it’s been a while since I’ve listened to these! I haven’t realized til now how much I missed these songs!

          • So what are the other 4 albums you’d have on that Island NY?

            • NYGino

              I knew that was coming!!!

              “Dark Side of the Moon” Pink Floyd
              “Kind of Blue” Miles Davis
              Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony
              “The Song Remains the Same” Led Zeppelin

              Unless I think about it too much, then I’ll remember others I can’t do without.

              • lol. NY- when you get stranded, you’d better bring me with you too. I’ll add my 5 (although some would already be the same as yours) so we’ll have more:

                3 Sides live (you can watch me play air keyboard!)
                Machine Head- Deep Purple
                Wish You Were Here- Pink Floyd
                Handel’s Messiah
                Quadrophinia- The Who

                How’s that?! 😀

                • NYGino

                  We’re filling in the juke box real nice but, shame on us, no Stevie Ray???

                  Edit: We’ve been way off topic here. Glad there’s no monitors around.

                • OH you’re right!! Can’t go without a little wing and pride and joy!

                  As for off topic, I don’t care- this has been SO theraputic!!!!

                  (Listening to Dancing with the Moonlit Knight now! Could play some of this one too on the keyboard) Man, I just might have to drag the old Yamaha out of the closet later!!

                  I love talking to you NY! It doesn’t surprise me we have more in common than just common sense 😀

                • NYGino

                  “Romeo locks his basement flat
                  and hurries up the stairs
                  with head held high and floral tie
                  a weekend millionaire” 🙂

                • “Home from work our Juliet
                  Clears her morning meal
                  She dabs her skin with pretty smells
                  Concealing to appeal”

                  Now who’s the romantic? 🙂

                • NYGino

                  “Cinema Show” I could just put that on repeat and go from there. Great interaction between keyboard and drums.

                • Keyboard and drums …. gee. Maybe we ought to start our own TRS band. 🙂 I’m SO out of practice…

              • Orangeone

                Seriously! You don’t take the Moody Blues Days of Future Passed?

                • NYGino

                  It’s hard to draw the line orangeone, try it you’ll see.

                • Orangeone

                  I have a HUGE collection so 5 would be too few, would need to figure out how an iPod works so I could load up that small thing with lots of tunes….

                • I was thinking of that one seriously Orangesis!! But like NY said, just 5 lol. It’s hard to pick!

                • Orangeone

                  Did you see my reply?  I’d have to figure out an iPod because 5 would never be enough….

                • lol yes I saw 😉 NY said we could only have 5. I had to narrow my choices down by about 7995, lol, but I do love and have always loved the Moody Blues. Ever since my brother gave me an album for Christmas when I was 5!

                • Orangeone

                  Nights in White Satin is one of the first songs I learned to play….that was a very, very long time ago 🙂  I actually just bought Moody Blues concert DVD….

                • I used to have a video of them playing at Red Rock. Taped if off PBS when I was living in Texas. Wore that thing out! 😀

                  I gotta get to bed sis. I was up til 3:30 last night. I can’t keep doing this. I still have a little more work I want to get done tonight. So- have a blessed night sis and see you tomorrow 🙂

          • It’s now 14 hours later, 1:30 in the morning and I’ve been listening to Genesis all night!! lol. Loaded up my mp3. Rock on NY! ((()))s

            • NYGino

              Hey girl! I had them on 3-4 hours yesterday and still can’t get Cinema Show out of my head! Have to say it helps with my tinnitus though. It’s an addiction. We need a Genesis 12 step program!

              • lol. Sorry about the tinnitus NY. But yes, this would be a good therapy for just about anything. 🙂 Mornin’!

                • NYGino

                  ABC, I have a gift for you this morning. Have you ever heard U.K.? If not I would like to introduce them to you. A progressive rock group 1975 – 1978 with members of King Crimson (love that group) and Yes, John Wetton and another unbelievable drummer, Bill Bruford.

                  Look them up and You Tube…U.K. Nevermore. Nevermore is about an 8 minute piece and at the 3 minute mark put your seat belt on and get ready for a trip.

                • I like King Crimson, and of course Yes, so I’ll go look right now! 😀 Hang on. I’ll be back in 8 minutes lol.

                  I’m back! That was different. I like it. I hear a blend of both groups in there. I’ll have to listen to it some more to get the true feel of it.

                  I have to say though my ex was a guitar player so I tend to like stuff now with more drums and keyboard lol. 😀
                  Thanks for the share NY!

                  Maybe I’m just kind of in this kind of mood right now (Crank it UP!) :
                  LOVE IT!!!

                  Have a Blessed day NY. I hope I see you again sometime today.

                • NYGino

                  Hey ABC! Couldn’t say Hi till just now, and then only for a quick peek. Just looked at Whittles thoughts and ran across your and Biker Hoop’s lessons, great, but as you can see I need more practice.

                  I’ve never claimed to be anything but semi-computer illiterate so I’m not going to feel embarrassed to say I don’t know how to install an avatar. If I did I might.

                  Hope you’ve had a wonderful day and a better tomorrow.

                • Just spent the last 20 something minutes listening to Supper’s Ready. It has been a long time since I listened to that one! 😀

                  Listening to The Cage again now. YAY!

      Who doesnt like a little Rush?

      Toss in a little April Wine and you’ll have a deal!

    • Orangeone

      I posted below but I’m wondering if Beck can sue over religious discrimination. We have a case in MN where the DOJ is suing a city for not granting a conditional use permit for mooooslims to use a commercial office building as a place of worship….religious infringement.

  • I am sorry,at least what Al Jazeera does looks like real journalism,while Beck just insults anyone that is educated

    • mike3e4r7

      What have you been smoking lately?

      Yeah, “looks like” real journalism. So does ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS. Looks like – but isn’t.

    • What the… huh?

      Twisted thinking and twisted words…

      Looks can be deceiving.

        • unclesamnephew

          actually i think the bee-keeper outfits are kind of sexy, NOT!

    • Nukeman60

      So I take it at least you were not insulted then.

    • Marridge

      So Enema, and what is YOUR opinion on women’s rights in the Middle East? And what do you think of Obozo’s attempts to promote the Muslim Brotherhood? You figure Al Jazeera will do some real journalism on beheadings and clitorectomies and stoning events and show them on Al Gore’s wildly successful Current TV?

      Or is Al Jazeera going to pretend all those don’t exist? Your president sure pretends that Islam is a wonderful “religion”! Have YOU figured it out yet, Enema?

      • 1. facts to a red lib? Loss of time.
        2. if Beck is an insult to educated kind (he is not), Enema is not effected.
        3. Nice proof of liberal arrogance – no facts, just spitting around.
        4. maybe she’s being paid (with our money) by DNC to do that? Many are.

    • Pyrran

      You’re right, you ARE sorry.

    • aposematic

      Leftists love illusions, without their illusions they are nothing.

        Good morning, American. 🙂
        Was wondering something, when a troll is banned, do you know if they continue to receive notifications of responses in the inbox? Thanks.

        • I’m not sure badbad. I imagine their comment if it’s still up would have at least the replies notification before they were banned, so they’d have to wonder how many more replies they got after they were booted and come back for a peek.
          Makes it even more fun to think they can’t reply back though lol.
          Mornin’! 😀

          • badbadlibs

            Thanks. 🙂

          • Orangeone

            Good, would like the enema to take a peek at my comment.

      • Apparently.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Yes, lefties are exempt from any laws that apply to those who are not them at birth…or so they’re told.

    • syvyn11

      Yes he can. We still have the right to sell to who we want. For now.

      Besides, I don’t think Glenn really thought that his offer would be taken seriously. It would be easier to form a new cable channel than spend the millions to reformat Current.

      • Actually no you don’t. Try not selling or renting your house to someone you don’t like for whatever reason. You can reject the offer but it has to be with good reason like too low. Al Gore flat out said he rejected GB due to politics.

        • syvyn11

          If you refuse to sell based on race or other discrimination. Business practices are still fair game.

          Besides, the only color I care about is GREEN! If you have the green, I’ll sell. If not, pound sand.

          • I care about that as well but apparently the left doesn’t. Nothing will be done though unless GB himself pursues it and i doubt that he will. And you can’t discriminate for any reason, not just race.

            • syvyn11

              Right, but if you don’t have the money honey, you can’t ride.

              • Except Beck had the money.

          • Orangeone

            But Beck is Christian and his show speaks of religion. I saw give it a run up the court system!

        • Orangeone

          You are correct Laurel. Try not hiring a minority that never applied for your job opening or was so blatantly unqualified.

          • This country needs to be scrubbed.

            • Orangeone

              I think it will be soon.

              • I hope so. Enough already with their never ending BS out of DC.

    • keninil

      That only works for race, color, creed, or national origin — not political viewpoint. But I dare anyone to try it selling their house.

      • Orangeone

        But it does for religion and Beck is openly Christian.

  • 3seven77

    Al Jazeera is “seeking” entry into US markets?? That’s news to me. Our local PBS channel carries Al Jazeera news right now.

    And don’t you just love these losers using the old, trite phrase “speaking truth to power”? If they were actually doing that they’d be selling their channel to **any** conservative that offered.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      It’s what’s called a “trial balloon”, I believe. 😛

  • colliemum

    As has been pointed out by those who speak Arabic, al Jazeera is nothing else but the modern-day version of providing taqqiya to the ‘unbelievers’. What they say to their western public is radically different to what they say to their arabic public.

    But hey – anything to deceive and to destroy the West is fine with Algore, as his AGW scam fully illustrates.

    So far, nobody is as yet forced to watch this cable channel, so boycott it.

    • syvyn11

      Not going to boycott it. I’m just going to ignore it.

      • I’ve successfully ignored it all along and will continue to do so. Had Beck bought it, I would have been willing to watch it. But no.

    • aposematic

      My boycott started over three years ago; still going strong.

  • Joe

    Yes, Liberals, Socialists, Communists, Al Gore and Keith Obermann and Al Jazeera. Sounds like a perfect collection of traitors. Glenn Beck is one of the greatest champions of the Constitution and Christianity in America, which is the reason why anti-America, anti-God Liberals can’t stand him. Here’s some more bad news Socialists;Glenn Beck is amazingly successful and will only become more influential among patriots. Liberals will just have to get used it.

  • Well, I don’t really know why Glenn would want a channel nobody watches. Current TV has such a terrible reputation that it’s going to cost millions to re-invent itself. I don’t know if Glenn has that kind of money. Al Jazeera, though, already has a following of millions of people around the world, so it won’t be that hard for them to find out that Current is now owned by Al Jazeera. So in one way I’m glad Glenn did not buy it, because financially it could have been a huge money loser for him. If Glenn really wants to break into cable TV, I’m sure there are other channels out there for sale. After all, at the rate its going, I’m not sure CNN is going to be around much longer!

    • dontdrinkthecoolaid

      Glenn has the largest subscription TV services, bigger than Oprah’s OWN, book publishing, clothing lines, the radio show and a channel on the DISH network. Glenn has the money, he’s self funded and does not need to show shareholders a dividend. So as long as everyone under Beck gets paid, all the other money goes back into the business. No doubt, Current went for a “song” by industry standards. At this point Beck has enough programming to place on his own cable channel.

  • unclesamnephew

    we can’t have Beck holding a monopoly of the media, didn’t you know?

      Hmmmm…. More like rain falling in all the oceans….

  • And what’s sad, a lot of the younger people look to Al Jazeera English as a legit source of news, much like they do RT and Press TV, Russia’s and Iran’s English networks. I should be noted, that Al Jazeera and Press are straight up Taquiya in English.

  • NCHokie02

    what’s current tv?

    (j/k i know what it is but have only seen it in the channel guide as I scroll past it.)

    • tinlizzieowner

      It’s a little like ‘Progressive’ Insurance’. 😉 😉
      Google ‘Peter Lewis’ (the head of Progressive Insurance) and you’ll see what I mean.

      • Those ads are sickening too. I hate them, the company and would rather have no insurance if they were the only insurers.

        • tinlizzieowner

          You know what GEICO stands for, right? The Government Employees Insurance COmpany. They are a publically traded company now but they got started off the taxpayers back insuring ‘only’ government employees.
          Peter Lewis, the head of ‘Progressive’, is second only to George Soros in his support for liberal causes. So, any conservative buying insurance from ‘Flo’ or the Lizzard, are cutting their own throats.

          • Ah, but he’s got such a cute little English accent? 🙂 Ever watch that ad where the lizard is on an adventure… I was waiting for the parody video where be gets flattened by a car. 🙂 Just my warped sense of humor acting up again! 😉

            • tinlizzieowner

              Aussie accent, just for the record. 😉
              With my background in TV/Journalism, I’ll be the first to say that these are very effective and clever commercials. Progressive has worn ‘Flo’ out. It’s time for that chick to go get a real job (like hooking on a street corner) and the ad agency knows it. That’s why you’re seeing things like the ‘Witch in a broom factory’ commercials. Also Very clever and effective, I wouldn’t mind working for that (ad) outfit.

              • Aussie is it? Darn… I like the witch ad as well… I keep thinking… Doesn’t she have her own private plane to take her from San-Fran to Washington though! 😉

                • tinlizzieowner

                  I can’t remember if it was her or Boxer who was complaining that her government (taxpayer provided) plane was too small because it has to stop and refuel once along the way, and ended up a bigger one.

                • Heaven forfend they might share a plane and cut the tax payers a break. Witches.

  • tinlizzieowner

    Mr. Hyatt said they agreed to sell to Al Jazeera in part because “Al Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current,” including “to give voice to those whose voices are not typically heard” and “to speak truth to power.”

    Glenn Beck is ‘typically heard’? Yup. we understand what you call ‘truth to power’.
    With any luck, it will go down the same path as ‘Air America’ and you’ll loose your a$$.

    • Orangeone

      So are they going to give voices to the women who live in the Middle East that are butchered, raped and those in India who are burned and gang raped? Guess not.

  • Nukeman60

    It does not shock me that Current TV and Al Jazeera have common goals. They are both wacko, far-from-mainstream media centers. What does shock me, however, is that Current TV is seen in 59 million households. Is that kinda like most households have a toilet in them?

    Al Jazeera and Al Gore will be a perfect combination. Global Warming meets global jihad – what better way to spread the liberal message. They can support gay marriage and immediately behead them as soon as they come out of the closet. What could go wrong?

    • Conniption Fitz

      The plan is to behead you if you don’t believe in the liberal falsified science propaganda of ‘global warming’. Seriously. One US professor has already recommended the death sentence for anyone who fails to believe in this stupid propaganda.

      The Gore-ites hope to base a huge global scam on carbon credits, carbon taxes, etc.

      The Gore-ites and greenies have already wiped out third world villages and people’s livelihoods with this nefarious tom-foolery.

      Real scientists have debunked man-made Global Warming.

      • Orangeone

        And we people that are calling for the leaders of the NRA to be murdered.

  • Hey at least Al Jazeera accurately reported on how much Cuba sucks. So they are already more believable than Gore.

  • wtd

    Quote: “Had TheBlaze successfully purchased Current TV, the current lineup of TheBlaze TV would have replaced the existing progressive programming in 59 million homes in the United States.”

    The fact that ¢urrent TV UTTERLY FAILED to gain intere$t within those 59 million potential viewer locations was the impetus for it’s sale to begin with.

    Given the characterization of ¢urrent TV/al Jazeera’s mutual affection$ and mind numbing propaganda. . .with any luck, al Jiz will meet the fate of ¢urrent TV, ‘tout de suite’.

    Over at the NY Times site everyone is cheering this great event. It was interesting to note how all the comments were from NY, LA, and Chicago. Not all, but the vast majority. The ongoing theme was that we were finally going to get the real story about what is going on in the middle east and how this was going to upset we the great unwashed who listen to “Faux” ( oh how clever they are) News and that horrid Beck person. I tried to leave a comment but I guess what I said didn’t show the proper repertoire.
    All I said was “Oh goodie, do you think they will broadcast the beheading of gays and the stoning of women who were seen with a man other than her brother or husband.” Guess sarcasm has no place with The Times Folks.

    So radical Islam gains yet another foothold in the Christian-leaning nation of America.

    This is how they do it. And this is how freedom is lost. Subtlely. Incrementally. Insidiously. Quietly. Under the guise of innocence (wolf in sheep’s clothing). Sound familiar? It should. Satan uses the same tactics.

    Interesting that they simultaneously drowned out Glenn Beck’s voice.

    Do Liberals not know that they would be executed if this country were ever taken over by the Muslims? Their lifestyle is abhorrent to Muslims. Pro abortion, pro gays, pro birth control, pro anything goes gets you head removed in Muslim land.

    “Mr. Hyatt said…’Al Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current, to give voice to those whose voices are not typically heard…’” This is a joke, right?

    The words stupid and liberal are interchangeable.

    (BTW why doesn’t someone in the MSM do a interview with Tipper Gore now, see how she is doing?)

    • tinlizzieowner

      As with every time in the past, these ‘free thinking’ liberals are the first to go to the concentration camps under a totalitarian (socialist) government.
      And as with every time in the past, it’s those who believe in ‘freedom and justice FOR ALL’ that are the ones who donate all the blood to rescue them from themselves and their decisions.

    • Do Libtard women ever think about the idea that they might be forced to wear a burka and not be allowed outdoors without a male relative? And education for girls and jobs for women? forget that… And I hope they like the idea of having to walk behind their men as well… Oh, and if he’s an abusive bastard, she better not report him without 4 independent MALE witnesses or it’s she who will be thrown in jail (if she’s lucky!)

      Liberal women who support this kind of Islamic “acceptance” are the worst kind of Morons alive!

        I really don’t think they do Wolfie. To the liberal elite, they just can’t imagine people not seeing their logic. The only time it might come to their attention is when they are led to the gallows. Not much has changed with that group since the mid 70’s when Tom Wolfe satirized them in … Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers. Then it was the Black Panthers of the Angela Davis era and now it’s the Muslims.
        Same church different pew.

  • 911Infidel

    ““Al Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current,”

    And what would that be? Jihad and jihad and jihad perhaps? Leftist jihad is no different from the Jihad that the Jizz channel wages. On the one side you got the high preist of the Goracle. On the other side you got the high priests of the pedophile genocidal lunatic.

    Both are united in their desire to destroy the west.

  • These libs have no clue as to who their dealing with…..NO CLUE!


    • aposematic

      I think they are using each other to achieve their similar end game. I know how the Islamists plan to end their relationship, not sure the Leftists have thought that far ahead though. Yes, I am assumming the Leftists have at least a couple of brain cells still functioning; on that I could be wrong.

      • Orangeone

        While the jihad concentrates on the left we will take down the jihad. Dual front wars don’t work out too well.

  • For those of you who do not subscribe to the Blaze, I would highly recommend it. Not just for Glenn, but the other talent he has on the network. I love Wilkow, and I think the Blaze news team engages in more debate involving critical thinking than what you get on Cable. I don’t always agree with them, but they bring out great points of view. I watch by airplaying the content onto my big screen after I have taken care of the family responsibilities earlier in the evening.

    Beck’s Christmas special was awesome. While I often think he has too much going on at once, I do like his overall message that this country can only turn on strong communities, not some representative in Congress or a President.

    Now, Glenn, if you are reading this, please comp my subscription. 🙂

    Dont we already have networks that are anti-american already. If Current TV was not able to survive what makes it think that its channel will survive.

    I know Mark Levin has had problems with Glenn Beck in the past, and Glenn’s unwavering support of Romney (I assumed based on religion) pissed me off, but he IS doing exactly what Bill Whittle is talking about…attacking this liberal problem by going after our country’s culture. Stop arguing in debates every 4 years and start making motion pictures and television shows that are conservative at their core. That doesn’t mean every show has to be about the founding fathers, either.

    There have been plenty of comedies, dramas, and every else in the past that are basically conservative in their message….even if liberals ran them and snuck in some lefty crap here and there. Happy Days, Andy Griffith, Bonanza, Disney’s sunday movie night… on and on. Yes, these are all “old fashioned” because anyone with a conservative bent has pretty much abandoned making anything new!

    We need to FLOOD the culture with programs that are fun to watch and make us feel good about America. Books, movies, tv…it can be done. I applaud Glenn for making the attempt.
