Glenn Beck suspended by SiriusXM radio for hinting at Trump assassination

The implosion, in full public view, of Glenn Beck continues . . . .
In 2010, Beck called Americans who question Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president “dumb birthers“.
During the primaries, Beck touted Ted Cruz as America’s savior — the fulfillment of Mormon end-days prophecy. Beck claimed to know the mind of God, threatening Evangelical Christians that if they didn’t vote for Cruz, they’re not listening to God. Beck even threatened to commit suicide if Cruz lost the pivotal Indiana GOP primary.
All of which led to Alex Jones, in a tearful, apocalyptic rant, calling Beck “a prancing demon”.
Now, prompted by what appears to be Beck’s approval to assassinate Donald Trump, the radio broadcasting company SiriusXM has suspended The Glenn Beck Program from its Patriot radio channel for a week, and is reconsidering the program’s place “in our lineup going forward.”

Breitbart reports, May 31, 2016, that SiriusXM has suspended Glenn Beck and assigned David Webb to temporarily take over Beck’s 9AM to noon Eastern time slot on SiriusXM’s Patriot Channel 125.
SiriusXM issued the following statement:

SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.

Brad ThorThe suspension is in response to an interview Beck did with fiction author Brad Thor on May 25, in which Thor likened Trump to a South American-style dictator who, if elected, would cause an “extinction-level event” for the United States. Thor said that Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by “legal means” through impeachment.
Thor then hinted at assassinating Trump as a solution. Admitting that “I’m about the suggest something very bad,” he asked Beck’s radio audience “what patriot will step up and do that” in the event Trump oversteps his Constitutional restraints.
Beck agreed with Thor’s assessment.
Here is the exchange:

THOR: He [Trump] is a danger to America and I got to ask you a question and this is serious and this could ring down incredible heat on me because I’m about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.
With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president.
If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.
BECK: I would agree with you on that and I don’t think you actually have the voices we’ve been talking about and we’ve been talking about this off-air for a while. I think the voices like ours go away. I don’t think we are allowed – especially if things, and I believe the economy is going to go to crap, even if Jesus was in office. It’s going to naturally reset. It has to.

After receiving criticism for what he and Thor said, Beck defended himself. You can read the full transcript of his defense here.

Sirius is right in suspending Beck’s show. In some so-called conservative quarters the overreaction to Trump’s candidacy borders on hysteria – you have to wonder if Trump is hitting a nerve with these folks. Trump has his faults but he is the only common sense alternative to the Clinton/Sanders candidacies.

I stopped watching Beck in 2009 when he had Tea Party people on from all over the country after that April 15 meet up in all the towns. Why? Because not only did the TP people he chose to be on air sound like they knew nothing about what was really going on, but at the end of the show, Napolitano comes out and says to fix things, WE NEED A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. Whenever Napolitano would substitute for the often sickly Beck, he would feature Michael Patrick Leahy and Prof. Randy Barnett of Georgetown Univ. and they would discuss why… Read more »

Beck’s “on-air” trained monkeys have done as much to shoot down Beck’s credibility as he himself has done-total “Yes men” who not only agree with anything he says,they gleefully expand on it and “one-up” the story. Actual FACTS are pretty much irrelevant on the Glenn Beck Program.

An unhinged attention whore and a hack of the highest order. Don’t forget he gave Cruz a compass that supposedly belonged to Washington (those freemasons stick together!)

Trump probably is too, however…being so steeped in the construction biz, the mafia & c.

A couple of childish buffoons, who need to spend some time getting grilled, and put in their place by the Secret Service. If they have the means to carry out what they said, it could get very serious for them. And to advocate something like that, to people they have influence over, could be seen as a conspiracy to commit murder. And since Trump is the choice of the Republican Party to be President of the United States, it could put them up for conspiracy to commit an assassination! My money says that some people you do not want investigating… Read more »

In a sense cognitive dissonance fits Beck inasmuch as he’s now a high-level adept in the AA cult that, like Scientology, uses intimidation to overcome the dissonance between reality, as well as the neophyte’s own awareness he’s being had, and the newly imposed way of thinking. Like Dubya, Beck had his brain literally rewired, when in AA he ritualistically “turned over his will and his life,” supposedly to a god of his choosing, but in actual fact to the dictates of the cult and to the supervision of his life thereafter by higher level adepts in the cult. Beck, like… Read more »

Beck is just another narcissist. After he attacked those of us who questioned Obama’s birth certificate, he lost all credibility.

It’s long past time for Beck to hang up the headphones.
Seriously, the man has become completely unhinged.

When he leaves the broadcast booth,I hope he takes his brain-damaged co-idiots with him. They,too,contribute NOTHING of value to the listening audience.

I know Thor is definitely on the #NeverTrump train, yet this was a little much. I heard a replay of it and was like, seriously? You gotta be careful with your public words in today’s America.

wow,not to many people who like Glen Beck huh? well i do. to each his own. you can tell a lot about a person from what he or she says. that includes some of the responses here. Look,sometimes people can see hints of things to come. sometimes. but you can believe what you choose. We are all souls who have been here many times. i know from personal experience that the closer i get to God,the more i see. Please be careful. Talking about something,anything,used to be acceptable. Now,not so much. how many times have people belittled and denigrated to… Read more »

I am serious: I have not listened to Beck for a number of years now because I think he may be a latent or repressed homosexual. There is something about the man that tells me he is peculiarly self-hating. I hope I am wrong.
But I will be frank and candid: I sense in Beck’s recent public, on-air behavior lately—say, the past six months or so—what I believe is SUICIDAL IDEATION. I don’t like Beck AT ALL. But I will pray for the man. I hope to God I am wrong.

I could probably cope with him for whatever time his radio program is on,right after “Rush”,but those jackasses he has co-hosting on his show just sicken me. It’s like having Homer Simpson and Moe-the bartender as co-hosts.

I was so grateful when I heard that they’d suspended his show, and can’t help but hope it never comes back on the air anywhere–Beck’s being so overly emotional is all for show, I’m convinced of that, since he is a free mason working for ‘the other side’, and definitely not on the Lord’s side at all, no matter what he might claim–you can’t serve satan and Christ in just the way you can’t ‘serve God and mammon’. I was a bit surprised that he’d actually jumped off that cliff, and gave even just tacit support to the idea of… Read more »

There’s a couple of guys who sound JUST like ’em on “Redeye Radio” later on daily,around Midnight. THEY are welcome to leave with Beck and his minions. These guys supposedly answer questions and field listener comments on news,but what they really do is call the callers idiots,make up statistics to prove them wrong and laugh hysterically at their theories and opinions. Probably drop outs from the same radio journalist school as Beck’s flunkies dropped out of.

This is outright conspiracy to commit a capital crime on a President-Elect, and the fact that the FBI hasn’t already arrested him tells us all how corrupt the system is
