Glenn Beck at CPAC: ‘Progressivism Is a Cancer in America’

By
Saturday, February 20, 2010 at 7:40 pm

Glenn Beck closed the 37th annual CPAC with a passionate, personal, ideological-but-not-partisan speech about his career and America’s values. For 45 minutes he held the crowd in the palm of his hand, veering between tales of his small-town upbringing and denunciations of the progressive movement.

“Progressivism is a cancer in America,” said Beck, “and it’s eating our Constitution — and it was meant to eat our Constitution.”

For fans of Beck’s daily TV show (less so his radio show) it was a deja vu kind of spectacle. Throughout the day, rumors had circulated through the Marriott about a “special guest” who might introduce Beck. Maybe it would be Sarah Palin; maybe it would be George W. Bush. I talked to activists who worked their sources with both of those people, coming up dry. A few minutes into Beck’s speech, the “special guest” was revealed — the chalkboard Beck uses on TV. The crowd broke into cheers as loud as anything heard all weekend.

“It’s still morning in America,’ said Beck. “It happens to be a kind of a head-pounding, vomiting, hangover kind of morning in America.”

It was a largely optimistic speech, less doom-and-gloom, and less specific in its attacks on the Obama administration than Beck’s usual fare. And coming so soon after the loud boos that greeted Ron Paul’s CPAC straw poll win, the rapturous response was sort of ironic. Nothing Beck said would have sounded strange coming from Paul — a fact that became even clearer when Beck said America “does not have to spread democracy” at gunpoint, because its values will spread themselves.

Beck scored few hits on President Obama, even apologizing (tongue planted in cheek) for a joke about the president’s Nobel prize. His targets were broader — the Democratic Party, the GOP, and anyone else touched by progressive ideas.

“My name is the Republican Party and I have a problem!” said Beck, suggesting a confession for the GOP that multiple CPAC speakers — including some party politicians — had issued over the weekend. “I’m addicted to spending and big government.”

Beck compared the party to Tiger Woods, too, paraphrasing the golf star’s mea culpa. “I knew my actions were wrong, but I thought normal rules did not apply. Kind of like economic rules.” And he made a thinly-disguised attack on Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). “We have a guy in the Republican Party who says his favorite president is Theodore Roosevelt. Well, I thought so too, before I read Theodore Roosevelt.”

The only Republican who came in for praise was the former vice president. “I love Dick Cheney,” said Beck. “But it’s not enough just to not suck as much as the other side.”

Echoing another theme of the conference — really, of every CPAC — Beck dismissed the idea that Republicans needed to reach out by becoming less conservative. “We need a big tent,” he said sarcastically. “What is this, a circus? America is not a clown show! America is an idea that sets people free!”

When Beck talked about facts and history, he dealt with the origins of the progressive movement up through 1938. The crowd devoured it. Woodrow Wilson’s name drew loud and knowing boos; Calvin Coolidge’s name got boisterous cheers. After praising Coolidge, Beck sniped at the press (waving his hand towards the media booth) and mimed typing on a keyboard, guessing that we’d mock him for praising the “roaring twenties.” But Beck’s attacks on Wilson were more jarring — he went after the 28th president for proposing the League of Nations and compared his fateful whistlestop tour promoting it to Obama’s campaign for health care reform.

At other times, Beck trod more familiar ground. He got his first standing ovation for saying the free enterprise system let him work from being “in the fetal position” at a low point in his career to rebuilding so “I can stand here today.” His other big applause lines, though, came after he recited patriotic boilerplate, culminating with a reading of “the New Colossus,” the Emma Lazerus poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty.

Beck’s speech achieved a major goal — it perfectly captured the change underway in the conservative movement, the motivating worry about economic collapse and the grand appeals to history and Republican Party reform. When Beck wrapped, ACU’s David Keene walked onstage and wrote “CPAC 2010″ on the Beck chalkboard. The board, he said, would be taken to the weekly Wednesday meeting of conservatives “to remind us all of what we should be doing.”

How on earth this party has the gaul to claim any moral superiority over anyone is beyond me. This is the party of the corporate stooges, the same momos who get raped over and over by corporations, banks and insurance companies and then go out and defend them. These “patriotic” clowns who reek on selfishness, who are so easily manipulated into manipulating freedom, these American-tie-wearing numb nuts that fostered the most incompetent and morally corrupt 8 years in US history have no ground to stand on. They are an evil party, a Party of No and no friends of the Constitution.

Beck, Malkin, O'Reilly, Coulter and the drugster are what's wrong with this country. They actively attack the one way this country can come out of the cesspool the Bush administration flushed this country into.

The one thing I have NEVER heard them talk about is how to get out of it, without sounding like raving lunatics. Beck makes too many “leaps” to be taken seriously on anything. He's a rabble-rouser, nothing more.

I particularly like Malkin, though. She cancels out anything she writes about, all within the text of her editorials. Sounding the fool so confidently! She took an odd stance with regards to race. Defends the baggers, as if they would accept her. Michelle “I'm caucasian, really I am” Malkin, Fool of the Year for 2009. Will Beck take on her mantle for 2010?

I like Glenn Beck, but he is in way over his head. He did deliver a great speech. But, Beck seems just a little on the edge of insanity as he considers all that is happening to our country. Leave the politics to more stable people please. I couldn't believe how proud he seems to be he only took one class in college. Um, maybe that is not something one should brag about, but that's just me. My money is on Huckabee or Gindrich.

some of you guys must have forgotten that Beck stated, “dem tax to increase gov and repubs spend without raising tax” he is blaming both sides for this problem. The progressive movement that Beck talks about is from both parties. Not all dem and repubs are progressive in thinking, they just vote partyline. We have had progressives in office for many years now. My opinion is for gov to get out of my business. They are here to defend americans from attack and that is all. Let the state take care of their people. We have way to many entitlement programs that have helped to bankrupt the economy and progressives don't care because they want the elite to have all the power and the private sector to be living off of handouts. They want control over are lives and once they get it, they won't be so gracious in giving.

I am a progressive. Thanks so much for telling me what I believe in, because I didn't know it.

I didn't know that I wanted the elite to have all the power; I thought that I wanted to help take care of less fortunate people.

I didn't know that I wanted the private sector to be living off of handouts. I thought that I wanted corporations to pay their fair share and not continue to receive more tax breaks than individuals.

I didn't know that I wanted the government to have control over “are” lives; I thought that I wanted the government to help the people and save them from corporations that tread on the people, and that I wanted the government to stay out of our bedrooms and decisions about our own bodies.

Gee, thanks, Brian, for telling me what I believe.

Interesting how quickly a simple discussion here devolves into pointless ad hominems – which only demonstates the absence of principle based argument to the contrary.

How is the Love of Beck any different than the fainting, fawning over Obama? Because Beck speaks the Truth?

“He got his first standing ovation for saying the free enterprise system let him work from being “in the fetal position” at a low point in his career to rebuilding so “I can stand here today.” His other big applause lines, though, came after he recited patriotic boilerplate, culminating with a reading of “the New Colossus,” the Emma Lazerus poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty.”

So we can conclude that Beck and his audience have a keen sense for the obvious and are schmoozed by the constant repetition of the same old “boilerplate”…kinda like a politician's stump speech? Wow.

“Throughout the day, rumors had circulated through the Marriott about a “special guest” who might introduce Beck. Maybe it would be Sarah Palin; maybe it would be George W. Bush. I talked to activists who worked their sources with both of those people, coming up dry. A few minutes into Beck’s speech, the “special guest” was revealed — the chalkboard Beck uses on TV. The crowd broke into cheers as loud as anything heard all weekend.”

Like Obama's teleprompter? Always good to have a signature prop.

I was there Wed PM – Sun AM. Never heard the buzz. But even if, what does it say about CPAC? The Attendees? The “mission”? That “conservatives” are just a diffrent bunch of Hero Worshippers than “progressives”, distinguished by their different Heroes? It certainly doesn't address accurate information or Constitutional principles. As 4 dudes in the elevator were discussing: “I LOVE coming to CPAC; it's such a great place to meet chicks! Not that there's anything wrong with that…” (Loud agreement all around).

So Conservatives, Tea Party-ers, maybe even Republicans are, like Diogenes, “seeking an honest man” who in this case is one who reveres an umcompromising allegance to the Constitution and Rule of Law. Why not Ron Paul? Why not Libertarians? Is there any other elected Federal official who maintains integrity with the Constitution as much or more than Paul? Of the Dems, Repubs and Libertarians, which Party can factually cite demonstrable fidelity to the Constititon?

If you can't be “a little bit pregnant”, can you be a “little bit unconstitutional” and still claim the moral high ground?

Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, Boortz, Savage – the “icons” of talk radio, all advocate positions and actions that would make the Founding Dads vomit. But Conservatives give them Standing O's.

Conclusion: Conservatives are just as unprincipled, uninformed and lust for power as the Progressives they dispise. Different priorities. Different perspectives. Different heroes. All unconstitutional and, thus, hypocritical. But God's on THEIR side!

Broadcasting friday afternoon on Radio Row, I heard Brian Wilson on WSPD say to some guest, “Conservatives and Progressives share one common bond: the use of government force to achieve their political agenda, regardless of the constraints of the Constitution. Isn't unconstitutional use of government force against the individual anathema in a Free Society. Isn't – wasn't – America supposed to be Free? ” CPAC should invite this guy to speak next year. I suspect the boo's would be deafening if he repeated that point to this audience.

Glad you're proud of your ignorance, Sonja. Read your history again.

Who was president when we got out of the Great Depression that occurred during a republican presidency? FDR. Democrat. Brought us public spending programs and the New Deal.

Did Reagan end up having to raise taxes? Yup. Haven't learned about that, have you Sonja, because it doesn't fit with your world view.

If you really wish to be educated, don't get locked into the lies of the tea baggers. And if by “watch” you mean FOX, just remember, it's “Fairly Unbalanced.”

Do you really think this economic mess and 2 wars we're fighting is Obama's fault? Don't waste your time in college if you won't think for yourself.

Progressive Posters:

No need to keep spouting the lines that your last “progressive” college prof. filled your head with. You keep saying “read history” but your comments about FDR leading us out of the depression make me quite certain you've only read historical commentary–never having read any facts.

Beck is right. We either fall back on the principle of personal responsibility, and allow everyone to succeed or fail based on their actions, or we end up enslaved. Unfortunately, many who comment here would rather be comfortable slaves than struggling freemen.

I might be wrong. Time will tell.

It's a good idea to review where Olbermann came up with “'Lonesome Rhodes' Beck” ? Face in the Crowd (1957) w/ Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal, Walter Mathau: Forgive me for having fun with the plot (although this really applies more to Limbaugh and Palin, not to mention Ailes and Murdoch) because it should be required viewing for all brainwashed wingnuts (including some of my own family) who either don't or can't read (and, no, Beck doesn't do what he tells everyone else to do):

Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes, while coarse and abusive in private, possesses a charm that quickly endears him to rural listeners after Marcia Jeffries (Neal), a small-town radio personality, discovers him in the county jail [ Bubbling Baboon Beck won't come clean about his involvement in a rape and murder of a 19-year old in 1990 , we all know of Limp "Operation Chaos" Limbaugh's 2006 drug charges, and neo Nazi/White Supremacist Hal Turner has confirmed friendship and kinship with Hack Hannity] and lands him a radio show. [Humm...]

Rhodes is introduced to Mel Miller (Matthau), a bookish graduate who writes his scripts. Rhodes makes a name for himself by insulting his sponsor — to the delight of his adoring audience. [Faux News' sponsors include Nutrisystem ] Rhodes's sponsor, whose company sells mattresses, relents in canceling the show when he discovers that Rhodes's antics increased sales by 55%.

An opportunistic “office boy” (portrayed by Roger Ailes–er, Anthony Franciosa) acts as an agent and lands Rhodes a contract in New York City, where he stars in his own national television program and becomes the national TV spokesman for Vitajex, an innocuous dietary supplement. A frenetic montage of Rhodes's hyperbolic ads for Vitajex, suggesting it has Viagra-like powers, is one of the film's most memorable sequences, highlighting the gullibility of the American public to a persuasive con-artist.

Rhodes' fame, influence and ego grow. He is called in as an adviser by national political campaigns, rudely instructing candidates how to gain the public's trust and suggesting himself for a Cabinet-level post. Rhodes uses his TV program to give exposure to his presidential candidate of choice [Vote Palin/Beck! ], while mocking the man in private to his various sycophants. [This redeems Rhodes: at least, unlike our contemporary political chickenhawks, he doesn't believe his own scat.]

Jeffries increasingly feels betrayed, first when discovering that he was not yet technically divorced from his first wife, then when Rhodes elopes with a teenaged baton twirler. [At least he didn't have a butt cyst--er, pilonidal disease--excuse to OD on Oxycontin] Miller intends to write a book showing the world what kind of man Rhodes really is. [Thanks, Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert ]

In the tradition of classical tragedy, Rhodes is undone by Jeffries [Alas, too much like John Ensign and his parents who are supporting Harry Reid's reelection], who, despite building his stardom and falling in love with him, brings down his kingdom. Rhodes is shown smiling and waving to the camera while in the control room, Jeffries and the technical staff hear him mock his viewers as “idiots”, “morons” and “guinea pigs”. [In a recent interview, Limbaugh flatly confessed that his divisiveness is solely for $$$. For once, Ed Schultz didn't put him into his show's "psycho-talk".] Aware she helped create the monster [in the movie, Miller uses the term "psychotic"], Jeffries pushes switches that throw Rhodes's comments on the air. Furious fans call the network. In a symbolic moment, an unaware Rhodes's popularity is shown plummeting as he rides an elevator going down [I can visualize the entire Faux News crew crammed into a freight elevator rapidly descending down "communist" Rockefeller Center.].

The story ends with a meltdown at Rhodes's penthouse apartment, as Jeffries admits she betrayed him and Matthau predicts his future: that Rhodes is finished. An uncredited Rip Torn is shown as “Barry Mills” [Palin?], the next Lonesome Rhodes waiting in the wings. Rhodes ends up threatening to kill himself and pleading for Jeffries to come back. [Oh, that Morman Beck (divorced Clair (1983-1994 div.) and later married Tania (1999-present)), Ailes (after two divorces married to Elizabeth)), Palin (well, we know all about Levi and the would-be "First Dude;" but is Trig really hers or Bristol's), Murdoch (two divorces: Patricia (1967) and (linkback:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Murdoch) Anna (1999) before Wendi)), Limbaugh (divorced three times: Roxy Maxine (1980), Michelle (1990), Marta (2004))], etc., etc., could ever possibly engage so romantic a denouement to reality.]

Well, speaking of denouement, Minitrue Beck and his historical revisionism from Wilson to Emmanuel Goldstein–er, Obama, government, progressivism, Democrats, liberals–you name it–is “1984's” Big Brother come true with a twist: He's corporately controlled. Yes, and Fox and “friends” (Antonin Scalia, etc.) are our corporate masters rather than government. And that everlasting war against Terrorism is peace; ignorance of Wall Street is strength; and, slavery to hate and fear is freedom. Neocon litmus tests are goodspeak and anyone caught reading “The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism” is guilty of thoughtcrimes. Yes, and with surveillance cameras everywhere, don't tell me corporate totalitarianism hasn't won!

Fools such as Beck, like all the rest, were the prime movers in the economic meltdown caused by their own ignorance of the crushing burden of debt. When these nincompoops took over, Clinton was actually paying down the national debt; the Bush Depression started long before 9-11.

One can only hope that the American people consign these failures and incompetents to the opprobrium and disgrace that they so richly deserve.

Bandying about terms like “responsibility” when voting for Bush…it would be laughable if not for the debt that they left us, and the terrible devastation that will take decades to repair.

Such simpleton thinking

>Who was president when we got out of the Great Depression that occurred during a republican presidency?

The Depression happened because of the Big Government policies of both Hoover and FDR.

The Depression ended at the end of the WW-II (WW-II just superseded one huge Govt emergency with another).. when the interventionist policies of the 30s were not resumed and businesses were allowed to do their thing.

>Brought us public spending programs and the New Deal.

That is what caused the Depression

>Do you really think this economic mess and 2 wars we're fighting is Obama's fault?

Obama sued to force Citibank to make unworthy loans. yes, he is directly responsible..

You can blame Clinton for not killing Bin ladin when he had the chance and for the Iraq Regime Change Act of 1998 that made it US Govt Policy to end the regime of Saddam Hussein.

You need to study history. FDR had nothing to do with the onset of the depression, which was caused by the tight-money policies of Hoover, refusing to print money unless backed by gold. FDR got into power in about the same situation as Obama: HOPELESS. The stimulus programs of FDR also failed to end the depression, which many analysts view as due to structural flaws in the unregulated economy. The agricultural depression started in 1922; did you know that “parity” was the slogan to get back to the price of wheat in 1914? The exact and proximate cause of the Great Depression was a “bear raid” done by some sharpers (including, ironically, Kennedy and Bush) which just kept going down and down — so far that they were almost ashamed to keep taking the money from their short sales.

To blame Obama for the failures of Bush-II is almost funny.

It was the Bush era failure to regulate the financial pirates, while keeping the oil-war budget “off-budget” for 7 years that caused this “Great Depression-II”.

The founding fathers were progressive about freedom of the individual. The form of tyranny the were escaping from was a monarchy. That monarchy was just another form control over the human condition. Modern progressive movement types are those of the “lets control the human condition” type rather than the”freedom will set them free” mind set. A better understanding of simple world history would have made that truth “self evident” to you.

Interesting seem's you missed Doug's point. He was saying that Glenn caused his own Debt hence his radio station based on conspiracys and (progressive) thinking. Yes Glenn Beck was a progressive and now he is somhow magically a conservative after he joined FOX. And as Doug said long before 9/11 he ment as in the spiral downfall started when the republicans took control of office

The progressives belived that there should power to the government, unlike the founders. You see, the founders escaped from a country with a very powerful government where only those who are worthy mattered. The founders thought the people should take care of themselves and be more independant, less reliant on government. Progressives are a complete 180 degrees from the founders, they want regulations and reforms that cause greater debt. The founders had it right, less gov't is BETTER!

some of you guys must have forgotten that Beck stated, “dem tax to increase gov and repubs spend without raising tax” he is blaming both sides for this problem. The progressive movement that Beck talks about is from both parties. Not all dem and repubs are progressive in thinking, they just vote partyline. We have had progressives in office for many years now. My opinion is for gov to get out of my business. They are here to defend americans from attack and that is all. Let the state take care of their people. We have way to many entitlement programs that have helped to bankrupt the economy and progressives don't care because they want the elite to have all the power and the private sector to be living off of handouts. They want control over are lives and once they get it, they won't be so gracious in giving.

So… you link a bunch of Left-wing blogs well-known for their hatemongering and disproven smears. I counter with… 1) actually relevant and actually TRUE facts, and 2) CONSISTENT logic:

1) The shooter said he already “knew” everything Fox and Beck were saying about Tides etc. and more and was ANGRY at them for supposedly not doing enough and not talking about the “and more” that the shooter “knew” about.

2) Insane nutjobs are the ones responsible for their insane actions, WHETHER THEY’RE SUPPOSEDLY RIGHT-WING OR LEFT-WING OR NEITHER. As opposed to the position Leftists take, which is that insane people are AUTOMATICALLY assumed to be Right-wing and that they were incited by this-or-that Right-wing person LONG BEFORE THE FACTS COME IN and even in many cases AFTER THE FACTS COME IN AND PROVE OTHERWISE. Examples: attempted assassination of the Arizona Congresswoman, the Oklahoma City bomber McVeigh (who Leftists STILL claim was some sort of Christian Right-wing terrorist when he was a self-described atheist, didn’t like many conservative positions, etc.), the Discovery Channel shooter/hostage taker (who ACTUALLY SAID HE **WAS** inspired by a Left-winger, AL GORE – yet the Right doesn’t blame Al Gore because, again, the Right overall is consistent, logical, and reasonable; the Left overall is not).

You lose.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
