Glenn Beck: America needs a 'reconciliation'

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: CNN

Glenn Beck says there's two Americas, and they must come together.

"We are vastly two different countries," Beck said at the end of an anguished week of angry debates about gun violence. He urged people to exit their echo chambers and hear alternate perspectives.

"We can't read only the things that we agree with," he said. "We have to have conversations, calm conversations that make us uncomfortable. We have to have that."

What a self-unaware statement.

1. The guy who's most responsible for dividing America now wants a reconciliation?

Okay Glenn, let's try that. You go jump in a lake and take all your followers with you.

11. My thoughts exactly.

When was the last time, if EVER, he listened to alternate opinions? He must be on more efficient medications for his mental illness. Did he bring his chalkboard along with him? Him, Limbaugh, Hannity, and others have been dividing the country for years. Now that the results are surfacing, HE wants to stem the flow? Maybe he could get his good friend, $arah Payme to join him for a rally again?

7. After listening to Jake Tapper

Being so rude to the Broward County Sheriff I am not surprised.

Jake has really become full of himself. He goes off on long winded tirades against those he invited on. Then interrupts them when they try to answer again and again.

I am not taking sides, but do know the Police have to get permisission to put a person in a mental hospital. And the Counselor in charge said Cruz did not meet the criteria.

They constantly allow Jack Kingston to rant and rave,talk over others, not allowing the other side to speak.

I have been tuning out the shouters, feel much better.

5. Yes, now that republicans are in charge...

let's all come together and help them legislate their agenda. I'm sure they'd do the same if Hillary was in office and dems ruled the house, just like they reconciled with Obama and Pelosi.

9. "Glenn Beck says there's two Americas"

And he was one of the spearheads of why.



He will never be a Michael Smerconish who jumped off that bandwagon 10 years ago.

12. As per CNN?

 

Weren't those folks the ones that gave him his biggest boost. Yes, I'm still bitter. The only "reconciliation" this guy needs is a hot soapy enema. Because like most personalities-of-opportunity he is totally full of shite. That's why his bottom lip always quivers.

13. No, but let's revisit this when Democrats control the House and/or Senate

See just how many of these "But we need to come together" people are still pushing this then.

15. Just a few months ago

Glenn was pushing the 3% solution and encouraging his followers to take up arms with the Bundy kkklan.

He also fully defends child rapists Dennis Hastert and Jerry Sandusky, he claims they were set up by the 'deep state'

17. Beck is as much at fault as anyone

He pushed every crazy conspiracy on Fox when Obama was first elected. Beck is a one man Russian troll army.

The only possible solution is mass persistent protest, resistance,
and change.

25. Maybe Beck could point to shows he did during the Obama years.......

Stating how we all need a big ole' group hug and come together as one and get behind Obama. Show us one Glenn. That puffy ass hat POS is on HATE RADIO here as the one to kick off the new day. I've listened for a few minutes from time to time,he NEVER made this type of statement when a black guy was in charge.
