Glenn Beck’s New Novel: ‘The Overton Window’

By
Monday, March 29, 2010 at 8:44 am

Will Bunch has the name of Glenn Beck’s upcoming adult novel (he’s already written a Christmas story for children) to be released in June. The news comes in Bunch’s extremely entertaining report on a Beck speech and rally in Orlando. The book, explains Bunch, will be “‘a story of America in a time much like today where the people are confused,’ with a government in crisis and the rise of a citizens’ group called the Founders Keepers, which ‘leads to a battle and a civil war, and life is upside-down planetwide.’”

On first blush it sounds like “Atlas Shrugged” with a bit more violence, and with 9-12 Tea Partiers taking the place of underground intellectuals. And it will also ruin for all time a term political scientists have enjoyed and Beck recently discovered. (In that clip, an early title for the book is “We Are Americans: The Overton Window.”)

Actually, what Beck's novel seems to resemble isn't Atlas Shrugged, but the Turner Diaries. Look it up if you're not familiar. Scary stuff.

Not surprising. On his show today, he's revising history once again, with a “comparo” of the Nazis and the Soviet Union before and during WWII. trouble is, it's historical perspective twisted with his brand of “logic”.

I couldn't watch the remainder, as I know how he'll twist it.

Beck seems recently to have become a fan of Ayn Rand, though Ayn Rand wouldn't have been a fan of Beck (she really didn't like many people at all). I wouldn't be at all surprised if this book resembled her work; I imagine it will be execrable. I'm sure it will be almost as popular among the militias as the Turner Diaries. Take a look at Fox News right now and the Beck fans are out in force defending the Hutaree militia.

Glenn Beck is more powerful that your childish website. I googled this book to find out more info on when it hits the shelves and stumbled across this garbage. Look at his sales and see who is a joke. TEA PARTY 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 to infinity and beyond.

Glenn Beck is inciting violence — and he is becoming what he claims to hate. Like Hitler in the early years, instead of blaming Jews for everything, he blames Democrats. And because “Democrat” isn't a scary enough word — he uses over-the-top names that trigger fear and paranoia — “maoist”, socialist, Hitler, Stalin.

He is a pasty-faced commentator who spends hours in a studio which resembles an echo chamber — talking to people who echo his opinions and shooting down those who don't. Personally, I think Glenn needs a broader life experience. I'd like to know how much time he's spent out of the country — and time on a beach doesn't count. He needs to spend 2 months in Africa — and explore Sierra Leone, the Congo, Somalia, and the Sudan. Just learn a little bit and see what real civil war is like before he writes a book about one.

I think he's living the fantasy of “Red Dawn” and is starting to see himself as some kind of messiah. He's decided to lift “Faith, Hope, and Charity” from 1 Corinthians 13 and turns it into a political/religion where Sam Adams, George Washington, and Ben Franklin are the new trinity. This is blasphemy, but it shows how deeply he believes in the ideas espoused by “The 5000 Year Leap” which was also written by a morman who played fast and loose with truth.

First Corinthians 13 is a chapter which starts off with “If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am but a noisy gong or clanging symbol”. Love is patient, love is kind.. This is the anthesthis of Glenn Beck's show — because he is all about inciting fear and therefore hatred of “liberals” and acts as if that the 53 million who voted for Barack Obama didn't exist, but instead that somehow the country was 'stolen' and he and his crazed crusaders have to take it back by force.

I'm from Montana. I've seen the freeman and their standoff. White Supremists are alive and well in the Yaak. Ted Kazinski lived here. Scott Roeder who was just sentenced for the murder of Dr. Tiller was one. A good friend of mine was murdered by a tax protestor as he conducted a simple payroll audit. That man went on to shoot two other policemen after he promised to turn himself in.
I've listened to these people — and at their core they are selfish, greedy, angry, and paranoid people. Lying is a method to get what you want – it's not a sin to them. They are all a hair trigger away from violence. And Beck enjoys raising the temperature — and then of course backing off from responsibility by claiming to be against violence. I would be willing to bet that if someone dared to ask the man who killed the guard at the holocaust museum, the man who killed the two officers in Philadelphia, and the Huttre militia what they thought of Beck, they'd all name him as one of their most admired.

1 Corinthians 13 ends with 13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

I have never responded to any of these sites in the past. I am not really sure where you stand politically, but I can make a pretty good guess. What I am sure of is that your statements are strong and real and yet they are written “without” hate. I really appreciate that! I happen to agree with some of the Beck commentary , without being a “crazed crusader”. I am also a Tea Partier! There are plenty of his listners that are excited about having a voice expressed. However, I am strongly against his sarcastic approach and obvious desires to insight so much hate and conspiricy amongst his listeners. As always, there is much injustice going on in Washington, but when we all play the game of blame and hate, nobody wins. Thank you for expressing yourself with responsibilty and not being a clanging gong!!!

There are plenty here like Think. Engage some of them, even if you see a “Clanging Gong” comment.
I have spoken to a few TPers' here, at TWI, and a few really ARE good folk. Sure, there are a few bad apples in every group, but I think most here are adult enough to reply accordingly.

It becomes contentious when those who hang on Beck's every word and are frightened by his rhetoric state something wholly false or attack someone else's stance, when it is obvious they, themselves know not what they speak of.
It's a bit funny, when you realize Beck has no respect for the TPers', yet he's still attracting them. Why?

Beck doesn't speak for anything but his billfold.

“Beck has no respect for the TPers, yet he's still attracting them.” What are you referring to? If you are referring to the Tea Partiers, then you obviously have not listened to, nor have watched, the Glenn Beck show enough to have any backing for that statement. He has great respect for anyone who speaks out…peacefully. He encourages peaceful protest, not violence. I have heard him say, many times, “Please pray for the protection of our President”. As far as his billfold…do you have a problem with someone being successful? Do you complain about James Cameron or Michael Moore, or even worse…George Soros?

Wow. You are hearing what you want to hear. Do you think we should “accept” what is happening to our country without protest…peaceful protest…that Glenn Beck ALWAYS states is the way to protest. He would be the last person to condone the violence that you mentioned above. And, for the record, I am not a Mormon and I do believe their theology is faulty. He has not hijacked the founding fathers and he isn't being blasphemous. He's trying to get people to see and remember WHY this country was even founded.

He was quoted as saying: “The teapartiers are idiots!” He was also quoted saying: “My show is only entertainment”. Take that for what it is, but:

1) Calling folk “idiots” is not a term of endearment in my, or anybody else's book.
2) Since his show is ADMITTED “entertainment”, it should be taken as any other “entertainment”. With a grain of salt, or maybe a couple hundred pounds of common-sense.

If you watched more than Fox noise, you would know that.

I don't need to watch his show on a regular basis (I do watch it, but his infantile rantings are tedious and insulting) to see how he manipulates his “audience”.
When he touts himself as “just a regular guy”, trying to place himself among “regular Americans”, I have to laugh. He has NO respect for those who aren't in lock-step with his ridiculous ideology, and he didn't always encourage peaceful protest. Beck also lives in a multi-million dollar home. Yup, he's a regular guy, alright.

James Cameron and Michael Moore don't confuse anyone with their films. They also delineate what is REAL and ACTUAL from fiction. Beck has been peddling his brand of “reality” to the Fox noise devotees, masquerading as a “plot” to destroy this country. I don't want to be insulting, but that's rabble-rousing. Nothing more.
Beck's beef with Soros has a beginning none of us is aware of, nor will we know what it is. His beef with ACORN was to deny the poor a voice. Beck's hypocrisy is easy enough to see. You can respect him and what he says, but ANY hypocrite isn't worth taking seriously.

Commenters negative towards Beck hate him (and I mean HATE) because he doesn't see the world through the same rose-colored socialist/progressive/bleeding-heart-liberal glasses that they do. All you libtards do is show your ignorance by commenting on these articles. Typical example of the promoters of tolerance being intolerant of something they don't agree with. Prove Beck wrong with facts. Real facts. I bet you can't do it. Also, if you haven't watched his show or listened to his radio show, YOU DON”T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. DUH!! Idiots, admitting they didn't watch the show all the way through, then saying they know where it was going. Hah! What intellectuals you are. “Let's all group together and yak about something NONE OF US HAS WITNESSED”.
It's that same old game of “pass the secret around the circle” and see what BS comes out the other end. The problem is, you libs actually BELIEVE what comes out the end of the circle! WITHOUT EVER SEEING IT FOR YOURSELVES! What a dangerous game we play. Information is the most important thing. YOU ARE WRONG. GO DO SOME FREAKING RESEARCH. LEARN SOMETHING. It scares me that you idiots vote.

You should actually spend some time listening to Beck before pretending to be informed. Beck goes to great lengths to inject pleas for peaceful responses and to discourage violence. As “Duh!!” pointed out those who hate, just hate and disdain reason. If facts do not suit your pallet then please, take another toke and remain silent.

I'm a Christian and one of my fav verses is 1 Cor., on that we agree but little else, Beck doesn't blame Democrats or Republican's, he blames people and he states why and he gives facts. Some of these are democrats and some republican's, just as I'm sure they are all from different races, backgrounds and different religions, and none of that matters and that's why he does not focus on any of that. Beck hates the progressive movement and on that I agree with him. Personally, I'm not crazy about his delivery but I like someone that basis what he or she says on facts and believe me, I don't believe anything just because someone, don't care who, says it. I'm some one that researchs and checks who's putting up the research because anybody can put up anything on the net. I don't hate Obama no more than I loved Bush, they are men and politicians, they all have good points and bad but if you care about your freedom and this country you, and I mean me and all of us, need to stay on top of things because even those that go into public work with the best of intentions,it is sad to say, can be turned by both money and power as both are more addicting than any drug out

Hmmmm.

Shame on me? Everything you see and hear on Fox noise is EXTREMELY suspect. Everything coming out of that crackpot toiler's mouth are figments of his own addled imagination. Think I'm being harsh? I've seen and heard some vile things from Fox noise. If the “lame stream media” is so suspect, why post a comment here? it's part of that “lame stream media” $arah Palin warned you all about.
Think of this: Ever wonder why Fox doesn't want you watching other channels? How do you know what you are seeing and hearing are verifiable? Answer: They're NOT! You cannot have an opinion that can be taken seriously without knowing BOTH sides of an argument. That's the first thing taught in Civics class. I expect you are older than seventeen. Like it or not, the “lame stream media” is the ONLY other source to VERIFY anything you see and hear on right-wing TV and radio.

Wake Up!

I run across mesmerized-by-Fox people all the time, and tell them the same thing. Beck has a Nazi fixation. Only when he's confronted with his obvious hypocrisy does he change his tune to either “communist”, “socialist” or fears of “oligarhy” (I'm STILL laughing about that one). It's the same rotten tune.
He's so offended by anyone ridiculing someone's kids, yet does the exact same thing! In the SAME one-hour program! Is your memory that short?
ACORN is as I said. Do you have a problem with poor folk being educated about their rights under the Constitution? Beck OBVIOUSLY does. Sounds racist to me, and he has the unmitigated gall to call President Obama a racist. That kind of hypocrisy should be your first clue that what you're watching is B******t! And look at what happened to James O'Keefe. Do you support HIS brand of “investigative journalism?”

I DON'T need schooling on what to believe. I take everything with a grain of salt. I VERIFY what I see and hear. Fox does what it does, because Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes are conducting a social experiment, and folk like you are their guinea pigs.

You know, I watch Fox too. I, however, can only take it a few minutes at a time, because what I see and hear on that channel are so offensive, so ridiculous and so steeped in fear and hate, It's no wonder you all are so scared. I fought for this country in TWO wars, as my father did in WWII, just to prove his loyalty to this country, and Beck's brand of “Patriotism” is a slap in the face!
The kind of right-wing extremism you have taken as truth is a cancer. I don't know how else to put it. Beck is an American laughing stock to the rest of the world. Know what the French (yes, Beck even has a problem with them, no doubt because…) call him? “Bebe Homme Pleurant”. Google it.
THAT is how he is viewed by Europe.

Look, you seem to be a nice person, and I apologise for any epithets, but I'm too angry about the nasty, hypocritical and patently false things I see on sites like this, promulgated by a “man” who can't even keep his “facts” straight. Investigate what you see and hear before you put forth an opinion, then you'll be one up on that toiler, Glenn Beck.

Why would we use the N word? There are far more valid things to hate him over than the color of his skin. The fact that he's liberal, for example. Or that he's being bush on steroids in the spending area. Or that so many idiots like you think it's because he's black.

Cuz when i stereotype black people, that's pure evil, but when you stereotype everybody that watches a show – many of whom I'm sure are black – you're being a mature, though provoking individual with a valid point?

I'm laughing so hard over the Beck sycophants here that if I make a typo, there's a reason.
Beck is a toiler. No other way to put it. He depends on his sycophant followers to prop up his dwindling ratings, and no, no one cries about or for him, except the fools who think Fox Noise is actually news.
What makes me laugh the hardest is that this thread is two months old, and the Beckies are STILL defending this clown.

Google “Bebe Homme Pleurant” if you want a good look at how the rest of the world sees him. He's an American laughing stock. I wouldn't even be writing this if a Beckie hadn't sent me a comment trying to shame me for being grounded in common sense!

All you Beckies need to either stop watching Fox, or start watching other news outlets. “Fair and balanced?” “Lame stream media?” If you don't VERIFY what you see on that excuse for a cable news station, how do you know what your seeing is real? You don't. Of course, Beck and Rupert Murdoch depend on it.

And you fools have fallen for it, hook line and sinker!

Please don't waste my time, and yours, by rebuttal. VERIFY your thoughts and comments before you post. You'll look smarter that way. I've been saying that for quite some time now, and and still the ridiculous noise about how “prescient” this hypocritical crank is. He's also a closet Nazi. Funny how he has to throw it around, accusing others of the very thing he believes.

So give it all a rest, people. Nobody with a working brain gives two s**ts about Beck. He's discredited himself so many times, he doesn't need help from you!

I don't do this blindly, like a liberal or progressive minion, as Beck would claim. He depends on all of you to accept what he says as gospel, playing on folk's religious tenets.

Beck is nothing more than a toiler. That you believe his brand of tinfoil hat shit is evidence enough you haven’t the brains to say anything worth taking seriously.

Talk about running the mouth!

Man this is one of the most pathetic attempts at defamation I have ever heard in my life. How in the fuck is Glenn Beck close to a nazi?!?!!? I would love to hear this. Nazi’s want to kill all jews and they believe that they are a perfect race and all others must bow to them. Now, explain to me again how Beck does any of that?
Anddd.. how has he discredited himself? He has written Broke, arguing with Idiots, common sense, an inconvenient book.. all of which have facts that prove all people like you wrong.. and NOT ONCE has anybody come out to say that something in the book was not correct.. NOT ONE TIME!!!! But, that is what you liberals do.. you say “he’s wrong” ” he’s been discredited” .. without supporting your claims at all.. you’ve gotten very good at smearing for this reason! Yet, nobody listens to you guys still because the news is dominated by fox and the radio is dominated by Rush, Levin, Wilkow, beck.. etc.. Conservatives DOMINATE BOTH OF THESE..
Now, lets go to news.. We could start by saying that fox has the highest ratings. Not only that but if you combine cnn and msnbc, Fox still has higher ratings..O’reilly has had the highest ratings for 10 years.. Hannity started beating larry king in ratings 5 years ago..and beck is no in the top 5..
How the rest of the world sees him?? The rest of the world is either socialist, authoritarian, or 3rd world.. We are the only country that 100 percent believes in economic freedom and choice.. so why the fuck do you care what the rest of the world thinks? What do you think the world thinks about the largest GDP in history.. or us destroying communism and nazism? Man, you are an idiot..

Hey, clownboy,

How’s your “savior’s” ratings doing now? You are stupid enough to base the veracity of what you call “real news” on ratings? Now who’s the idiot, idiot?
Got the message yet, or are you still a true believer in his brand of imbecilic Chicken Little nonsense?

It must truly be something to frightened every night by bulls**t coming out of the mouth of an insane asylum escapee.

Man, you have to step outside that echo chamber, and start living your life, instead of letting a toiler like Beck dictate how to decorate your bunker, and how to THINK.

Gotta hand it to him, he’s got you, and a lot of other fools hooked!

I don’t know who’s the bigger idiot. Here’s a hint….He’s a multi-millionaire.

How about you?

IDIOT! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Tinfoil Toiler is going off the air!

Finally, we won’t have a certified nutcase wallowing in his own filth spraying patent lunacy to the weak minded and gullible.

In the race to the bottom, I hope some of the ones not totally indoctrinated by Beck’s mental illness had parachutes.

We have all been fond of office 2007 professional plus furniture haven’t we? With ms windows 7  designs available in all parts of Windows 7 Ultimate, Internet is one medium to choose the best Cheap Windows 7 at competitive prices and that too at a store near your Office 2010 Professional. Below http://hohosoftware.wordpress.com summarize some Microsoft Office 2010 to help you choose the best Office 2007 Enterprise for your corporate as well as office 2007 product key : Generally, while http://hohosoftware.blogspot.com are searching Office 2007 Key, we just type in our window 7  and start browsing the http://peaksoftwares.blogspot.com which appear in the Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise. But here is the Cheap Windows 7 : most of the searches we do without specifying a location with the purchase windows 7 , we end up wasting our time. Let http://peaksoftwares.wordpress.com take an example of windows 7 download . Now people go to Google and type “Windows 7 Ultimate ” and start browsing the Buy Windows 7 . They spend a lot of time finalizing Download Windows 7  but when they decide to contact the Win 7  for the price quotes and delivery time, they generally end up realizing that the Microsoft Windows 7  from which they had selected the Windows 7 , belongs to a different country and the buy microsoft office 2007 cannot export to a their Windows 7 Professional. The simple solution to Windows 7 Professional  would have been, assuming that the Buy Windows 7 buyer resides in India, to search for the keyword “Microsoft Windows 7 India” or “Windows 7 Home Premium  in India” instead of the keyword “Download Office 2010” because when the buyer searched for “buy office 2007”, sites from different countries showed up, microsoft office professional 2010 plus might have had good designs Office 2007 download were not available in window 7 but they were of no use. The purchase windows 7 advantage of using a location such as Office 2007 Ultimate, in case it suits the buyers, office professional 2007 plus can go and checkout their Office 2007 Key and maybe get a better design microsoft office downloads has recently become popular but is not ms office 2007 professional on the website.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE CLOWN PRINCE OF PARANOIA IS GOING OFF THE AIR JUNE 30, 2011!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TV’s tin foil toiler has lost his gig. Now all you Chicken Little cowards who think he’s the real deal – you’ll all have to tune into the feeble radio station he spouts his ridiculous dominionist horses**t from.

Now Y’all can huddle in your basements waiting for the rapture!  With the Tin Foil Toiler leading the way. I figure he’s got to lead – you “people” are too stupid to actually know what you are doing, and what you think you know.

Looking to Glenn Beck for anything but a laugh is just a WASTE OF TIME.

Have fun, shitheads. I wonder when it will be, when you all finally realize just how badly you have been taken for a ride by that fucking fake. Maybe some of you will never realize.

And it’s you that I pity the most.

GLENN BECK IS GONE!!!! Sanity will return. Maybe now, the GOP will be able to tell history, without fucking it up, trying to revise it.

But I doubt it. They’ve been drinking the Fox noise Kool Aid too long………….
