Glen Beck's Popularity Skyrockets After Leftist Campaign Against Him

Story here.

In case you didn't know, Glenn Beck once called Obama a "racist", a well-supported label, if one has been carefully researching Obama and what he's said and done over the years.

The Left is trying to punish Beck for this.

Obviously the Left and businesses who fall for their intimidation tactics are out of touch with Mainstream America.

Even before the liberal boycott of Glenn Beck began this summer, the bestselling author and TV host had became a ratings superstar, with his 5 p.m. cable news program pulling mega prime time viewership numbers. Beck had also become a lightning rod for liberal groups who didn’t like his anti-Obama message and his staggeringly large audience.

But now Beck’s fame seems to be growing even more as a spontaneous, nationwide effort has sprung up among fans to defend their hero, including Web sites, Facebook groups, homegrown e-mail blasts, and individual telephone campaigns.

The reaction in support of Beck comes in the wake of the advertiser-boycott campaign launched by Color of Change, an African-American advocacy organization with close ties to the Obama White House.

(...)

"Glenn Beck is to be congratulated," New York Times best-selling author Peter Schweizer tells Newsmax. "They only go after you when you are being effective -- he must really be causing them problems."

"I think it tells us a lot about the style of politics coming from the organized left and this White House," says Rich Noyes, research director for the conservative Media Research Council watchdog organization. "They want to be so strenuous in going after their adversaries, they have a take-no-prisoners approach. I think it would be unthinkable if conservatives, particularly those affiliated with the Bush White House, had gone after a media figure associated with one of the other networks."

The group attacking Beck is apparently racist as well as socialist. Just like Obama's handpicked (by the folks behind the curtain, of course) Green Jobs Czar, who founded it.

Yep, Obama's stormtroopers are jackbooting all dissenters with whatever tactics they can pull out of their hineys. We hear of this all the time. And, like in Nazi Germany, the Big Media isn't sounding any alarm over these thuggish anti-democracy tactics. This is frightening and ominous.

Just like Hitler's Brownshirts when they pushed for boycotts of Jewish businesses.
Those (inter)national socialists know how to intimidate people.
But their effectiveness is being weakened by a wiser population who has learned a lot about them and their ways of stealing power and imposing unpopular, devastating policies.

UPDATE: The irony of all this is that the black supremacist group bashing Glenn Beck for calling Obama a "racist" is itself guilty of openly agreeing with an unhinged rapper for calling former President Bush a "racist".

Such hypocrisy. It's the racists going after a non-racist for calling a racist a racist.

One glaring inconsistency in the Color of Change group’s demand that Glenn Beck’s head be served up on a silver charger: Their Web site sells “Kanye Was Right!” T-shirts.

(...)

“Kanye was right about what?” challenges DefendGlenn Web site creator John Hill. “That President Bush gave the National Guard permission to kill black people? It’s ridiculous. If any group on the right had said the things they’ve said, they would have been dismissed as a hate group long ago. So for them to be taken seriously with this ad boycott is absurd.”

Conservative journalist Matthew Vadum, the Capital Research Center’s senior editor, alleges that Color of Change “incites hatred for profit and to promote its race-obsessed agenda and that’s what it’s doing to Glenn Beck … “

Vadum adds that the group “is trying to depict Beck as some kind of a white nationalist crazy, and clearly he’s not.”

Well, we know how the Left operates...

Again, welcome to the Union of Obamerican Socialist Republics.
