Joining a choir of liberals, self described â€śconservativeâ€ť Glenn Beck called Alex Jones a â€śfascistâ€ť on his radio show just after the Morgan-Jones showdown on CNN. An interesting comment from a self declared comedian who has for many-a-year studied and emulated Jones, realizing that truth attracts listeners. By doing so, Beck hopes to perhaps jump on the bandwagon of hard-hitting talk radio.
In the weird setup of his â€śBlazeâ€ť show (the master sitting just a little bit higher than his two minions, complacently smiling at them- even allowing them to bring in a point of view from time to time), Beck discussed Alex Jonesâ€™ performance on Piers Morgan. After making his usual sophomoric ape-sounds, echoed by his two lady-friendâ€™s snarls and giggles, Glenn Beck does his standard impression of a more or less â€śseriousâ€ť commentator, stating that although he thinks Piers Morgan is no friend of the Second Amendment, Alex Jones is a â€śraving fascist.â€ť After airing a clip from the confrontation between Jones and Morgan (from 09.30), the first thing Beck says is â€śthis guyâ€™s a real danger.â€ť
At some point, one of Beckâ€™s minions (the one decorating his desk with a skull) fell completely through the floor in his attempt at verbally sledgehammering Alex Jones:
â€śThis is how they want every tea-partier to seem like that guy: the screaming moron, the fat moron that you see screaming at the street corner.â€ť
After this pathetic meltdown, Beck looses all composure, bluntly stating that he believes Alex Jones to be a fascist:
â€śThat sounds like the ravings of a fascist. Thatâ€™s what that sounds like. And, quite honestly, I believe what that guy isâ€ť, Beck stated.
Consider Glenn Beck. Hereâ€™s some rotten fruit that fell out of the apple-basket to appease conservatives nationwide. And whatâ€™s worse, the man has for many years now copy-pasted Alex Jones in order to gain traction among a great part of the American people. In any case, if anyoneâ€™s â€śfascistâ€ť, itâ€™s warmongers like Glenn Beck who cheered on George W. Bush and the neocons when they set out to turn Iraq into a parking lot, leaving a pile of countless dead Iraqis and US soldiers in their wake.
Re-posting his opinions of Alex Jones on the websiteÂ Glennbeck.com, he did not repeat his â€śfascistâ€ť remarks, but did regurgitate his disgust for Jones for his views on 9/11:
â€śNow whether you like this guy or donâ€™t like this guy is up to you. He has proven himself to be a dishonest conspiracy freak. I mean to the point â€‘â€‘ heâ€™s the guy who is â€‘â€‘ he is the author of the 9/11 conspiracy theory. Anyone who thinks that Popular Mechanics is a CIA front probably should â€‘â€‘ probably should get a nap in, maybe around 4:00 this afternoon.â€ť
Perhaps Beck is still upset with Alex Jones, when the latter exposed him of being a shill of the new world order, trying to appease libertarians into this idealized, sweater-wearing type of conservative who walks around all day radiating conservatism whilst doing nothing to stop the global mega-banks from consolidating absolute power. Without resorting to drastic labels like â€śfascismâ€ť, hereâ€™s what Alex Jones had to say about Beck in 2009:
