Glenn Beck has been doing his thing for years. … It wasn’t until the last couple of years that the rabid hatred of Beck went mainstream. What happened?You can get entire Glenn Beck essay and the complete list of 100 by ordering Townhall Magazine today.
On Jan. 19, 2009, just in time to counter the progressive agenda of the Obama administration that would be sworn in the next day, Beck launched his Fox News Channel (FNC) show. Though he had been on CNN’s Headline News since May 2006, doing a very similar show, it took joining the Fox News family for Beck to really gain the ire of the Left—as long has he was on a low-rated cable channel that also happened to share the ultimate liberal agenda, they felt they could at least co-exist with the conservative talker.
But it wasn’t just Beck’s joining the Democrats’ most-hated network that has driven liberals to hysteria and resulted in some sort of mental condition that causes them to go into conniption fits at the mere mention of his name in even casual conversation. … No, it’s more than Beck becoming one of Roger Ailes’ minions—much more. …
Beck’s real sin is that he has successfully combined his concern for the direction of this country—a direction currently being dominated by progressives who hate what America has been—with a powerful defense of American exceptionalism and a passion for the Founding Fathers and the system of government and nation they created to produce a show that both educates and entertains. …
Americans—Democrats and Republicans, young and old, those who’ve been political for ages and those who are just beginning to get engaged—now truly sense the threat to the American way of life that the radical Left’s agenda poses. They hadn’t realized it before—both because they had never seen such an extremely progressive, uber-liberal, revolution-loving president and because they had either forgotten or never learned the real history of the United States.
Thanks to Beck, Americans are waking up to what our government is up to and are hungering for the real story of their nation—the one that the progressive movement, using the schools and universities, has tried to keep from them.
We are falling in love with our country again.
That is why the Left hates him.
