This week in shameless hucksterism

image

As he counts down the days until he’s deFoxed, Glenn Beck is building an independent media empire. At first it looked like he was just going to sell subscriptions to a website with a video feed of his radio broadcast. But to sweeten the pot for his audience of elderly shut-ins and unemployed gun-strokers, Beck is offering EXCLUSIVE extras if they act without delay. Including a Beck-guided tour of Auschwitz to kick off his Restoring Coinage event in Israel:

I’m going to Poland in a few weeks and I’m going to take you to Auschwitz, live, as I am taken on a tour of Auschwitz, as I prepare mentally and prepare the story for 8-24. I don’t even know what that’s going to be like. I have no idea what that’s going to be like.

But there are going to be things, live events, including 8-24, with behind the scenes access, documentaries that you won’t see anywhere else, interviews and things with world leaders, right there as they happen. It’s going to be quite a wild summer. And you can sign up now at GBTV.com.

Yep, he really, really went there. Note the deadline for the offer: 9/12. I guess he couldn’t figure out a way to work 6,000,000 into the pitch.

Dumbass Beck, if he wanted to educate people on a massive crime against humanity, he could have just jumped in his clown car and headed south in America, and stopped at the first cotton field he came to.

I don’t even know what that’s going to be like. I have no idea what that’s going to be like.

It’s going to be like an attention addict at a funeral taking a dump right in the open coffin just to make sure all eyes on him.

Wow.  I looked at the pic first, and I thought the Auschwitz bit was a joke.  Apparently, the joke’s on me.

I have no idea what that’s going to be like.

Nor I, at least wrt specifics, but I’m pretty sure there’s going to be incoherent blubbering.

And what Hunger Tallest Palin said.

9/12 was the first thing I noticed. But St. Rudy’s Day falls on a weekend this year so, just like tax returns, you get that extra day to get everything wrapped up. Huzzah!

Oh hey, a Mormon walks into Auschwitz and - stop me if you’ve heard this one before…

Oh hey, a Mormon walks into Auschwitz and

Baptizer?  I hardly know ‘er!  Take my wives, please!

Fxd.

Is that a seer stone in yer pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

9/12 is sacred to Glenn. He started the “9/12 Project,” which has since moved on without him.

He’s a big numbers freak: 9/12, 8/28, 24/7. Given his new-found affinity for Judaism, I excpect he’ll go Total Kabbalah Nut faster than Madonna.

...or psychotic, which is the other normal destination for people with weird number obsessions.

Gonna be a very short trip to the latter choice. And he’d need to pop it into reverse.

NYT business-section story on Beck’s plans.  My guess?  This ain’t gonna work.

What does 8-24 mean? It’s buggin’ me now.

Not as much as Glenn “Porkrinds ‘n’ Becks, but still…

What does 8-24 mean?

August 24, when he enters Jerusalem on a donkey.

NYT business-section story on Beck’s plans.  My guess?  This ain’t gonna work.

From the article link you cited, Beck’s promoter explains:

What GBTV will not be, he and his associates emphasized, is a news channel.

Talk about stating the obvious…

Don’t act surprised.  We all knew that someday Glenn Beck would invade Poland!
