Beck’s Rally: Genuine, or a farce?
Of Glenn Beck: It is hard to trust a man who can be an anti-right advocate when with CNN; and then switch to become an anti-left spokesperson with Fox. It is hard to trust an uneducated man such as Beck who now has his own “University.” It is hard to trust a man who seem to be able to cry on cue, a man who makes fun of Harvard intellectuals because he simply could not even finish college…It is hard to trust a man who all of a sudden found God and uses “it” to help propel his ambitions in his Washington DC rally.
Is Glenn Beck a charlatan? Or, is Glenn Beck, a genuine article?
As one of the prime movers behind the tea party, an organization without any positive missions, an organization built on “anti” government sentiment, Glenn Beck seemed to have decided that God may fill its void in purpose. This approach may have some credibility since Sarah Palin, the other tea party star, seem to be indeed a strong follower of religion.
Glenn Beck is an influential US political force, but is Mr. a force to the good, or are Glenn Beck’s interests to simply to further his own influence, and career?
Beck switch from CNN to Fox is not asimilar to Governor Palin’s leaving the governorship of Alaska, while breaking her commitment to the people of that state, and doing so in order to advance her own career, and enhance her personal fortune (which she managed to do in a very short time.)
One may ask, is the fact that the tea party most recognizable stars, Palin and Beck, are opportunists, will render the movement a “flash in the pan,” or will the tea party find leadership, and causes that will allow it to develop into a legitimate political force?
