"He's very on key on the problems we're facing today," Justin Rovins, 27, of Ormond Beach, said about Beck. He's followed Beck on the radio for more than a decade. Despite people questioning the host's credibility, "he's feeding everybody the facts," Rovins argued.But, when you consider the treasure trove of information found at Media Matters for America, I would think it is safe to say that anybody who believes Beck speaks the truth doesn't know the facts to begin with. What was more entertaining about Beck's visit is his blatant hypocrisy, which his fans seem to ignore.
"Worshiping idols, that's the problem with Americans. We're worshipping cars. We're worshiping homes. Stop worshiping the almighty dollar," Beck scolded politicians during the event.This coming from the man who is the paid spokesman for Goldline International. Just consider the advertisements, where you can hear Beck speak the following:
When the system eventually collapses, and the government comes with guns and confiscates, you know, everything in your home and all your possessions, and then you fight off the raving mad cannibalistic crowds that Ted Turner talked about, don't come crying to me. I told you: get gold.Sounds to me like Beck is the one worshiping the almighty dollar, as well as material possessions, such as homes and cars. Beck's fans seem to eat this rhetoric up, believing the multimillionaire Beck is an everyman. Who's drinking the kool aid now?
