The Glenn Beck Effect

One reason I pay a lot of attention to Glenn Beck is that, viewer for viewer and listener for listener, he has a more direct impact on the conservative movement and the GOP base than any other conservative personality. Here’s an example.

On Aug. 24, back from a vacation during which a Color for Change campaign cost Beck dozens of sponsors, Beck did a raw, investigative report about the Apollo Alliance, a heretofore uncontroversial green group which, in March, saw board member Van Jones become the White House’s “green czar.” Beck informed viewers that Jones was a reformed criminal and political radical, something Jones has really never tried to hide. Nonetheless, Beck saw a scandal.

The $787 billion stimulus package includes more than $100 billion for green initiatives. You just met our green jobs czar. Now, how much of a role did Van Jones or the Apollo Alliance and their left-leaning allies have in crafting the stimulus package?

Beck brought on Phil Kerpen of Americans for Prosperity to dig further into the issue.

And I think that second part is really critical, the way that brought together all of the major elements of the leftist coalition and they used it to bring public opinion to them. Now, historically, the unions have been very much against environmental regulation.

The insight here with Apollo and and so on is that if you raid the U.S. Treasury and you take all these money and use it to subsidize these so-called green jobs and make them union jobs, give money to the social justice street organizers and so on, you can get every one of these leftist constituencies on the same side with taxpayers on the other side. And they can loot the U.S. treasury in order to support all of their friends.

Yesterday, 72 hours after Beck broadcast all of this, Rep. Steve Buyer (R-Ind.) held a town hall before a pretty sympathetic crowd. The first question in this video:

Who wrote all of these bills? And did the far-left Apollo Alliance have any role in writing any of them?

“I don’t know what that is,” says Buyer, standing in front of the confusing health care chart designed by Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas). “I don’t know what the Apollo Alliance is.”

There are rumblings from the crowd.

“Van Jones!”

“It’s Van Jones’ organization!”

“Ask the Green czar, Van Jones!”

That last comment gets a big wave of applause. Buyer, chagrined, says he learned something.
