Beck Being Buried By Bolting Believers?
The first fallout from Glenn Beck’s public descent into televised insanity was the massive advertiser boycott of his show when he called President Obama a “racist” with a “deep seated hatred of white people”. That remark caused at least 62 businesses to pull advertising and it cost Fox News millions of dollars. It also cost him just about every audience member that was a person of color. Next, the unhinged entertainer lost every single one of the advertisers on his United Kingdom broadcasts. That was followed by a Christian boycott of Beck as a consequence of his urging audience members to leave their churches if they promote “social justice”. Beck told them that the term “social justice” was simply a code word which indicates that their church supports socialism or communism or Nazism. Beck’s words? “Now, am I advising people to leave their church? Yes!”
With the loss of church goers to go along with the loss of people of color and mainstream sponsors, Beck was left only with an audience of flash in the pan fanatical Tea-Baggers. He held onto those spelling challenged, violence inciting crackpots by constantly promoting their cause and by posing as their political science professor. On a nightly basis Beck would lecture to them about the dangers posed by all the socialists, communists and Nazis within the Obama administration. In an attempt to appear professorial and to make the Tea-Baggers feel at home, Beck used a chalkboard upon which he often misspelled words.
But then something strange suddenly happened on the way to the Neilsens. Now even the Tea-Baggers are abandoning Beck’s comedy show. His viewership ratings have been dropping since the beginning of 2010. By last Friday, Beck’s television show hit an all-time low with only 1.7 million viewers. That is a drop of over 50% from his peak of 3.4 million viewers back in late 2009. Beck’s average number of viewers is now only 2 million which is a solid 1 million daily viewers less than last year.
This begs the question, how long will Fox endure a show that brings in virtually zero advertising revenue while losing at least 1 million viewers per day? Will Glenn Beck’s darling free market capitalism actually be the cause of his ultimate demise? Let’s hope so.

(sung to the Eagles song “Desperado”)
Desperado, you better come to your senses
Your racist offenses, so public now
Oh, you’re a hard one
But this will be your last season
The Fox boys are teasin’ you
Your show’s all done now
After your unseemly cryin’, boy
We knew you were unstable
We have all seen you fall apart on your set
Now it seems to me, you don’t bring
One sane sentence to the table
But what could one expect from crazy Glenn Beck
Desperado, you better fetch that old plunger
You’ll soon be flushed under that porcelain throne
Your kingdom, your kingdom fell and it’s not all that shocking
You just kept on talking till you were all alone
Will your deep dark soul hibernate in slime?
Your name, Glenn Beck, constitutes a crime
As does most everything that you say
Your sponsors all fleeing your show
Ain’t it funny as we watch them go away?
Desperado, You’ve shown us all what nonsense is
The prevailing sense is, you only hate
Your tears are rainin’, cuz you know nobody loves you
The Lord in Heaven up above you
(heaven up above you)
The Lord in Heaven up above you will decide your fate
