Glenn Beck Says Japan Quake Was ‘A Message From God’

Glenn BeckLet’s hope this idiotic pronouncement from Herr Beck finally makes his declining but still large radio and television audience realize that he truly is a pompous, self-absorbed moron. AFP via Raw Story:

US celebrities and media Tuesday blasted right-wing radio host and television presenter Glenn Beck for calling the monster quake that rocked Japan last week a message from God.

Actress, author and talk show host Whoopi Goldberg said Beck should “check the mirror” if he thought Friday’s 9.0-magnitude quake and tsunami were signs of God’s anger with mankind.

“If this is because we’re misbehaving and God is pissed (angry), I would check the mirror, Glenn,” Goldberg said on The View talkshow, which she co-hosts with three other women.

The disaster has claimed nearly 3,400 lives and left more than 10,000 people missing in northeastern Japan.

In a rambling presentation on his radio show on Monday, Beck said God may have caused the catastrophe in Japan because he was angry with mankind, and warned people to change their ways…

    Ain’t nothing just about what that Mormon fuck said.

  2. That’s why they call it a fallacy, I think.

    ha ha nicely said Whoopi! If God’s gonna send Japan a Quake, for er… why again? … then Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, all employees at Goldman Sachs, Sarah Palin, the entire Bush family including distant relatives and friends, Henry Paulson, Bankers, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Limbaugh, PNAC and all the rest of those hate-fuelled warmongering corporate cock-sucking idiots can be expecting a red hot lava enema laced with sulphuric acid to be administered by the Almighty himself pretty darn soon… lets hope He films it and sticks it on YouTube…

    Well, “yes” and “no”.

    A more faithful interpretation of the message from God would read:

    “Glenn, your career ends here. Bye. Love, YWH”

  16. Would someone please stick a pin in Glenn Beck? I have a hunch he would deflate to a microscopic ‘mini-Beck,’ which is just about right!

    Glenn Beck is a hateful and dangerous moron.
    A religious fundamentalist, he belongs to America’s version of the Taliban: an extended family of medievalistic, paranoid, ill-informed, excessively fearful, bigoted, self righteous zealots.

  31. Dear Glen Beck,
    I just got a massage from your mom and she told me that you were conceived after she sat on a wal-mart toilet seat, urinated, then wiped herself with a dead rat.

  33. Glenn Beck is full of himself & he knows that the people who watch his show & listen to him on conservative talk radio also babble incoherently, spewing complete nonsense & fear-mongering. He needs to be removed from the air. His biased opinions are all being pulled out of his ass & he knows there are plenty of idiots like him to support his rich life style. He is another educated idiot, a highly paid jackass. & enough with the Liberal vs. Conservative bullshit. It’s all a farce & they all have tea parties with fine china. *that one is a little tongue in cheek*

    Umm.

    Like not living near dangerous fault lines?

    That’s about the only recommendation Beck could make for change that’s even worth the cost of my home internet monthly service charge that it took for me to read this article and type a reply.

  49. Not angry at mankind, Glen, just some arrogant Americans, who in the 1950’s, decided that they were the only folk in the world smart enough to design reactors. These same American savants, know it alls, smart asses, also designed Oldsmobiles, in inches, pounds and ounces. Have you driven one of these lately? Do you realize the rest of the world is metric, speaks multiple languages?
    Check Tsinghua University, China, site, look for pebble bed gas reactors, then talk. They have one, at least of these safer, cheaper, by design, reactors, up and running as we speak. Where is the American equivalent?A secret? A Corporate secret? A patent secret? Bull Shiite!
    Be reminded, China invests, as we speak, Billions of Yuan, not in trouncing Iraq, as a party-favor to the Saudi princes, but for research into Thorium fueled, safer, cleaner, cheaper, reactors.
    A close look at America will reveal, that perhaps, the American people, proletariat, precariat, peons, patriots, folk, have lost favor with God, and are falling away from his clear, concise, simple, easy to understand commandments? Did the greatest in history, Hollywood propaganda machine have anything to do with this? Glen, Preach this!
    Glen, Christ had severe stipulations about material wealth, requirements, before taking up His cross, before following Him. My bet is, very few in the Republican party want to hear this.
    Glen, it takes a very special, American brand, of narcissism to assume that God speaks directly to you. Why not to a Rabbi, a Priest, The Pope, a Minister, a Nun, or, as in the Catholic tradition, to simple children, playing in a field?
    Glen, we all understand the hubris behind your claim, and yes, mankind, especially the Uber-Rich of the Republican party, needs admonitions from time to time as do the dividend collectors of the world. Please, narrow your brush-strokes, comment more specifically on those who do harm to others from the Biblical perspective. Be more specific, if you can, and place the blame for much of the world’s problems on the Capitalist, Corporatist, Corpocracy/Plutocracy your own America has substituted for her Democracy.

    • Wow, you’re all over the place. But let’s just focus on nuclear power. If it hadn’t been for the anti-capitalist, mad at their parents, spoiled brats of the 60’s, who are now THE MAN that they organized and protested against in their college age years, we would have been building and refining the designs of nuclear plants, and I am convinced would have more than half of our power from this source. It was their chicken little irrationalism, not some great conspiracy. But, you go on with your conspiracy theories like…….hey, like GLenn Beck. You two have a lot in common.

    When I first heard about Japan I wondered who would be the first A@% Hole to weld the GOD sword. When disaster hits Christian areas its “Oh god is testing us” , if you don’t believe in god it “God hates you”. With a friend like god I don’t need any enemy’s. God is punishing us. After all he gave up Glen Beck, Rush Limburger, Sarah Painintheassin, Dick head Chainaroundournecks and George ScrewthemallintheBush.
