The following is a collection of Glenn Beck quotes, catching the talk show host during some of his finest moments. No one is quite certain if Glenn Beck is actually crazy or if he simply pretends to be crazy.
Like most things, crazy is subjective (on both ends), so the beholder is left to decide…
In May, 2004, in an interview with beheaded American captive Nicholas Berg’s father, Michael, Beck said, “Can you let your son’s body become the same temperature as your son’s head before you turn this into a political campaign against the president? Could you do that?”
In answer to the question: What would people do for $50 million? Asked in May 2005, Beck said, “Would you kill someone for that?…I’m thinking about killing Michael Moore… I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it,… No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus — band — Do, and I’ve lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, ‘Yeah, I’d kill Michael Moore,’ and then I’d see the little band: What Would Jesus Do? And then I’d realize, ‘Oh, you wouldn’t kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn’t choke him to death.’ And you know, well, I’m not sure.”
On November 6, 2006: “You know, we all have our inner demons. I, for one — I can`t speak for you, but I`m on the verge of moral collapse at any time. It can happen by the end of the show.”
Also in November, 2006 (14), Glenn Beck interviewed then Minnesota Representative-elect Keith Ellison, a Muslim. He said, “No offense, and I know Muslims, I like Muslims, I’ve been to mosques… With that being said, you are a Democrat. You are saying, “Let`s cut and run.” I have to tell you, I have been nervous about this interview with you, because what I feel like saying is, “Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies — and I know you’re not. I’m not accusing you of being an enemy, but that’s the way I feel, and I think a lot of Americans will feel that way.”
In January 2009, Glenn Beck said on his program, “The most used phrase in my administration if I were to be President would be ‘What the hell you mean we’re out of missiles?'”
After Sonia Sotomayor was nominated by President Obama and her Cal-Berkeley speech in 2001 became front page news, Beck said on his radio program, “I think she is a racist. I think she decided things based on race. I think she says that a Hispanic woman, with the experience of being a Hispanic woman can make decisions that a white man can’t make. I can’t imagine saying that. That’s like saying Hispanics can’t make money decisions like them Jews. (“The Glenn Beck Program,” May 27, 2009)”
