Did Glenn Beck Compare Jimmy Carter to Terrorist Suicide Bombers?

Glenn Beck is truly losing his mind in front of a nationwide audience. First, he lounges on a Fox News couch sharing his belief that President Barack Obama "hates white people" and is a "racist". Then he calls for a 9/12 right-wing protest at which about 60,000 people show up ... many of them carrying overtly racist signs and billboards. Now he rants about Jimmy Carter using the tactics of terrorist suicide bombers:



I imagine that Glenn Beck is under immense pressure. After all, he has lost over 50% of his advertising revenue since an online petition was circulated a few weeks ago. I need to update my list of advertisers that have agreed to boycott Glenn Beck's show on the Fox network. There are now 62 advertisers on that list.

Estimated advertising revenue [the total amount of advertising money being spent during a block of commercial time for a program] was collected on a week-by-week basis for a period of two months. According to the data collected, the amount of money spent by national advertisers on Beck’s program per week was at its highest at approximately $1,060,000, for the week ending August 2, 2009. ColorOfChange.org launched their campaign at the end of that week and since then, 62 advertisers have distanced themselves from Beck. Data collected for the week ending September 6, 2009 shows Beck’s estimated ad revenue at $492,000, equal to a loss of $568,000.
It appears that the pressure is beginning to be felt by Glenn Beck. Don't you agree?

Most definitely!

He is saying just about anything to stay relevant in the media news cycle. Glenn...oops, I meant Harold - that's his real name - is nothing but a whore right about now trying to get paid.

RiPPa - I didn't know that his first name was Harold. I hope that he continues to feel the pressure...

Glenn Beck is an idiot. But what gets me are all the other idiots that truly believe him!

Glenn Beck is a court jester!

He titillates the fearful, stirring their imaginations with lies and concocted images. His faithful followers want to believe he is a prophet. He's nothing more than a Medicine Man, pandering words of fear, hate and resentment. Were it not for his remaining advertisers, he would join the ranks of the unemployed.

The stench secreted by a skunk is always detectable by those with a sense of smell.

The U - I imagine that we need to keep working on his remaining sponsors! Did you see that he made the cover of Time magazine this week?
