It’s A Glenn Beckian Backlash

Beck Facts

Recently, there have been more dark days for Fox News network host, Glenn Beck. Last Sunday morning on CNN‘s State Of The Union program, Democratic strategist James Carville when asked about what he thought of Beck, responded, “I think he’s nuts, OK?” and, “Just out and out nuts. And I also think that he’s a blatant hypocrite. Here’s somebody that sits on his show … weeping about how much he loves America and … and then he’s absolutely giddy when his country doesn’t get the Olympics. And this is … I’ll tell you another thing about Glenn Beck. He wouldn’t know the difference between a football, a bat and a hockey court (sic). This guy is not … he’s just all … he’s just all weeping.” Ouch !!!

Carville’s remarks followed those of Republican Senator Lindsey Graham during his appearance on Fox News earlier that day. Graham said, “[H]e doesn’t represent the Republican Party. When a person says he represents conservatism and that the country is better off with Barack Obama than John McCain, that sort of ends the debate as for me as to how much more I’m going to listen.”

Both of those negative assessments of Glenn Beck follow directly on the heels of other recent Republican and conservative criticisms of the bat-crazy host. As Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off reported on September 29th, Beck was also skewered by Joe Scarborough, Robert Frum, Mark Levin, David Brooks, Peter Wehner, Elisabeth Hasselbeck (The View) and Republican Congressman Bob Inglis of South Carolina. Oh, and we almost forgot to mention that Beck was also disavowed by the entire city council from his hometown of Mount Vernon, Washington. How many more sponsors will flee his show now?

It almost seems as if Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are in a contest to determine who is most unpopular among Republicans and conservatives in the know. Nevertheless, is there anything more entertaining than watching Republicans feed on their young?

YOU’RE NO GOOD

(sung to the Linda Ronstadt song “You’re No Good”)

Feeling better now that Beck’s through
Feeling better cuz his fans are few
They learned their lesson, it left a scar
Now they see that Glenn Beck’s no star

He’s no good
He’s no good
He’s no good
Glenn Beck, you’re no good

Let’s all just sing it again
He’s no good
He’s no good
He’s no good
Glenn Beck, you’re no good

You’ve come apart and don’t have a clue
Well, you have no heart and we all know it’s true
All of Glenn Beck’s sponsors starting to flee
They wouldn’t stay there if the ads were free

He’s no good
He’s no good
He’s no good
Glenn Beck, you’re no good

Let’s all just sing it again
He’s no good
He’s no good
He’s no good
Glenn Beck, you’re no good

(musical interlude)

We’re telling you now Glenn Beck, they’re going away
There’s nothing you can do now to convince them to stay

He’s no good
He’s no good
He’s no good
Glenn Beck, you’re no good

Let’s all just sing it again
He’s no good
He’s no good
He’s no good
Glenn Beck, you’re no good

Oh, oh no
He’s no good
He’s no good
He’s no good
Glenn Beck, you’re no good

Mt. Vernon City Council Says, “Get The Beck Outta Here !!!”

Last week was not a particularly good one for Glenn Beck. His first faux pas occurred when he tried to make a point on his Fox News program by throwing some frogs (he claims they were rubber) into a pot of boiling water. The only new fans he gained by that stunt were Michael Vick and his posse. The rest of civilized America was understandably disgusted by his actions.

Next, he was skewered by fellow conservative Joe Scarborough on Morning Joe which airs daily on MSNBC. Watch the clip below which also includes denunciations of Beck by Robert Frum, Mark Levin, David Brooks, Peter Wehner, the dim-witted Elisabeth Hasselbeck from The View and Republican congressman, Bob Inglis of South Carolina.

Finally, you might remember the announcement about one month ago that Mount Vernon, Washington’s (Beck’s former hometown) Republican mayor, Bob Norris had unilaterally decided to honor Glenn Beck by presenting him with the keys to the city. The mayor’s action however, triggered a firestorm which prompted 16, 000 of the city’s 26, 000 residents to present a petition to the city demanding that the honor be withdrawn because of Beck’s hate filled rhetoric. Although the mayor declined to withdraw the honor, Mount Vernon’s city council unanimously approved a resolution stating that the “City Council is in no way sponsoring the Mayor’s event…and is not connected to the Glenn Beck event in any manner.”

The event took place on Saturday, September 26th, but hundreds of protesters appeared. They wore t-shirts and placards which stated, “Hate is not a Mount Vernon value” and “Hate kills.” Additionally, a plane circled above the event pulling a sign which read, “Change the locks!” it must be tough when you are despised in your own home town.

BECK’S SMELL

(sung to the Lynyrd Skynyrd song “That Smell”)

Whiskey bottles and drug filled jars
Those were Glenn Beck’s best days
Way too much coke and too much smoke
How does Fox News take pride in you?

Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
Don’t Glenn smell like hell?
Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
The smell of Beck surrounds you

Yeah,

Angel of darkness is in our view
He’s a weasel doing harm (you fool, you)
The bloviating bloke, has a show that just blows
Have a drink, fool, you clown, you (hell, yeah)

Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
Don’t Glenn smell like hell?
Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
The smell of Beck surrounds you

Righties call Beck prince charming
They take his word as the gospel truth
Yet Glenn Beck’s logic is hollow, and
Fox News just might learn he has no clue (no, clue)

Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
Don’t Glenn smell like hell?
Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
The smell of Beck surrounds you

(musical interlude)

Oh, Glenn Beck’s views
Do nothing else but spread alarm
Beck’s a fear-mongering bore

(musical interlude)

Beck has his own little Waterloo

It’s a monkey on his back
Sponsors have split from his racist schticks
One hell of a price and Beck’s show might get nixed (hell, yeah)

Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
Don’t Glenn smell like hell?
Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
The smell of Beck surrounds you

Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
Don’t Glenn smell like hell?
Ooh, ooh Beck’s smell
The smell of Beck surrounds you

Oh, Glenn Beck’s views
Do nothing else but spread alarm
Beck’s just a fool, just a fool, just a fool.
