Did Glenn Beck and Alex Jones Team Up to Fight World Peace?

Let us know what you think. John V. Santore writes for Media Matters:

In his response to the announcement that President Obama had been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, Glenn Beck sounded at times like conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, all while continuing to willfully ignore the currents of racially motivated violence flowing within the 9-12 “movement” he is working to build.

BECK: These progressives are extraordinarily powerful. And this campaign of Barack Obama, this global campaign for Barack Obama, is done by global interests that have extraordinary power. They’re very well connected.

Point taken, Glenn. Everyone knows that the Nobel Committee has been in the pocket of the Tri-Lateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations for years. It’s all part of the New World Order.

But here was where Beck really showed his disregard for reality:

BECK: The Nobel Peace Prize should be turned down by Barack Obama and given — you ready for this? Oh, this one’s gonna make headlines — should be given to the Tea Party goers and the 9-12 Project.

    whoa! that glen beck is a social commentary genius isn't he! gonna make the headlines? really, where? his little rant needs to be spliced in with footage of the incompetant 9-12 marchers who couldn't seem to figure out what they were protesting

    Glenn is simply a Disney-esque rip-off of Alex. It's painful to watch him ever-so-slowly learn of his own ignorance on the public stage/screen/airwaves. It's like professional puberty.

      “Glenn is simply a Disney-esque rip-off of Alex” – I couldn't have said it better myself.

    Becks job is to entertain one portion of the population while drawing attention away from the one major truth that dare not be spoken, 911 was an inside job. As more people become aware of what were once brushed off as conspiracy theories, the “Handlers” need desperately for the blinded sheep to not gain full vision of that one single truth.

    How has this got anything to do with alex jones?
    glenn beck is a corporate fox disinformationist. Apart from AJ reflecting what a lot of people the world over are saying.. such as, how can you award someone a nobel peace prize when they were in office for 11 days? Regardless of what the media says and he still has some way to go to start fulfilling his campaign promises.. out of iraq, no more gitmo, no more lobbyists etc.. 11 days worth of speeches does not a nobel peace prize make in my humble opinion.

    Be thankful that during prime time Fox News only reaches 0.8% of the US population and daytime ratings only count for 0.5%

    - very well said.

    Beck's theatrical fervor is downright irresponsible. Only a matter of time before his fans wake up…

    Anyone know anything about those 9-12 meetings. I heard they have these meetings all over the country.

    i can't stand glenn beck but holy fuck when did disinfo turn into such hardcore leftists?

    • Polymorpheous

      seems everyone decided to go lefty since our messiah was elected.
      i've voted libertarian since 1996 and here is a strange phenomenon…
      when W. was president everyone considered me an anarchist because of my libertarian views
      now that the koolaid man is president, i magically reversed poles and am now a right wing extremist.

      Wouldn't say Disinfo is full of hardcore leftists, as the site now is community-contributed and open to new voices. We welcome a variety of opinion.

    Nice group of comments. Good to see people are waking up. It’s really just a matter of elementary logic. If the mainstream media is completely controlled (which it is), then how could someone with a $50 million dollar contract like Beck be anything but a pied piper, disinformationalist, a completely controlled shill? Alex Jones, on the other hand, is who you listen to if you want to wake up in a hurry. Again, it’s simple logic. If we never rooted out the SOB’s that killed the Kennedy’s and MLK, then where do we think they went? Do idiots just think they disappeared? No, they’re busy as ever with 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing, and on and on and on. PEOPLE! WAKE UP! THEY are in charge, and most of us are being herded around like blind cattle while the rest of us watch in utter dismay at the dismantling of our country and constitution.
