You Knew It Was Coming, But Glenn Beck Makes It Official: "I'm Moving to Dallas, Texas."

We've known for a couple of weeks that Glenn Beck was eying a Westlake manse, but this morning on his radio show he made it official. Let's go to the "fusion of entertainment and enlightenment" hisself for the official what-for:
"I'm moving to Dallas, Texas, and my family is there now, and I will be there shortly. We're keeping our business, Mercury, in New York. Nobody is surprised by this, I'm sure. We have been planning for a long time," Glenn said.

"We are moving to Dallas and we're going to build a film and television center and radio center in Dallas and we're going to create some jobs with people who know how to create jobs in Texas," he promised.

"The thing I wanted to tell you is we are changing our life because I actually believe in the things that I tell you every day. And we've started GBTV which is already more wildly successful than we had imagined that we would be. It's not even on the air yet and it's already successful."

"Stand together with GBTV and we'll try to work together and change the country, based in Texas."
Tour his new home here. Maybe he can let 'em shoot Dallas at his house.

Good! Im glad you stopped giving NY any kind of money.  Many people and companies are leaving because the taxes and regulations are insane.  Let the city crumble under the weight of its own taxes and regulatory laws.

HELL YEAH!!!  Come on down Glenn!  I left my nut job of a state (California) 3 months ago for a chance at actual Freedom and a decent life here in the DFW area.  Welcome to the club man!  I've met a Lot of people who have moved here recently to get away from the crazies

Just like Rick Perry, Glen Beck is a closeted homosexual.

So far,Glen Beck has gotten 360 comments from most people who say they don't careabout his move to the area. This guy is going to make so much money from thisracially torn region. These types of people feed off the emotion of people andget rich; the same as all politicians and most religious leaders. These daysmost people are spiritually broken, financially broke, or just down righthateful and these types of people thrive in an environment like the DFW area.This fear monger practice has gone on for centuries. In ancient times mostpeople were illiterate and relied on the religious leaders and deities to guide them. Thechurch had no windows, only painting and statutes of what they wanted the people to see andbelieve. Religion based on fear and inferiority was used on slaves, which iswidely practiced in most mega churches today. One time I visited a mega churchand I consider myself to be a very healthy minded person, who lives a fairlydecent, spiritual, and giving life. When I left, I felt like, shit, what I havedone wrong! But I quickly popped back.  Weare not illiterate people, but our minds are easily swayed by these types ofpeople. They are not leaders they are blood sucking ticks that are interestedin your wallet, taxpayer dollars, tithes, or whatever will support their livelihood. I’m not against luxury living, but toprey on the weak and the lost is a sin in itself.

First of all, Westlake, TX is not Dallas, TX.  Second, who invited him anyway?

Ah yes, Dallas. Where whack-jobs like Glenn Beck can play to conservative political and religious bases simultaneously. Do I smell an Omen sequel in the making?

can't get interested.  Don't care, the guy is a sophist.  Don't really have time for this insult to my intelligence.  I don't want to be played or manipulated, and resent anyone who would do so.  You should respect your own time more than that.

Nothing new here about Glenn moving to the DFW area. We have always had our fair share of right wing extremist. All you need to find this out is to read some DMN papers from the 60's. Read some of the editorials when JFK was coming to town. H. L. Hunt led the pack back then. Very hateful group.

Dallas had it's share of left wing extremists.

One of them Shot Kennedy. But not in a hateful. right-wing way.

He's not moving to Dallas.  He's moving to Westlake, located in Tarrant and Denton Counties.  But then facts have never been Glen's strong suit.

rance

Yes, because most Americans know where Westlake, Texas is, right?  People who live in the suburbs always tell non-residents they live "wherever the closest large city" is.  For example, I tell people I live in Houston, TX.  But I really live in a suburb 15 miles from Houston.  A suburb even people who live in TX have never heard of. But I guess that makes me a liar, too.

Christina Clowes

Haha, you're too funny!....I doubt I would lose if I were to bet that less than half of the so called Americans you refer to, could place Dallas on the map! In fact I propose that at least 2 out of 10 wouldn't even identify Texas correctly!

So I suppose Glenn is implying that most Americans don't know where Fort Worth is. That's a shame given that he's moving fairly close to said city.

Brenda Marks

Westlake is not a suburb of Dallas. Not even close.  Not even in the same county.  Fort Worth is closer to Westlake.  So Rance, that just makes you geographically challenged.

rance

No, it makes me not know where Westlake is, which kinda proves my point. He said he was moving to Dallas because most people don't know where Westlake is....but they know Dallas.

Brenda Marks

And Rance I didn't call him a liar.  Although I wouldn't argue with that statement.  He's proven over and over again that factual truth is not his forte.

Houston doesn't have another city that is nearly as well known.  DFW is nearly as well known as Dallas alone.  Ft. Worth is much bigger and more significant than Galveston or Beaumont.

Geez. This is worse than the King Bucks/audience acknowledgement imbroglio over on DC9 last week. The name-calling is fun for about 50 posts, after that it just makes me sad.

RW, I bet you were giggling like a school-girl when you clicked "Post" on this one! I would have been.

No, not really ... wish it hadn't degenerated so quickly into so much name-calling. Tried to keep a close eye on it, but, clearly, Drudge is mightier than Unfair Park.

I tried to refrain from too much invective myself.  But, I have to say, the stupid is strong in Beck fans.  I like to think I can explain the libertarian argument, even the capitalistic argument, even though I think both have some short-comings (radical thought that we can't just give ourselves over to some formula and poof we're saved--hmmm, wonder where that kind of thinking comes from...)  But, trying to explain conventional economics to a Beck fan is hard.  There is a lot of ignorance and sophistry to unpack.  It's tempting to simply launch into invective, but, it really demands that we try to explain the flaws in the logic.  "I mean, say what you will about National Socialists, at least it's an ethos"

Glenn, you're neighborhood will be free of bleeding heart liberals.  They don't make the kind of dough it takes to live where you're moving. You'll be surrounded by free market capitalists.

Brenda Marks

Jimmy, you have no idea about the real estate market in the Dallas area.  Or the median income.  Or the demographics.  Many of us "make the kind of dough it takes to live" in Westlake.  We just choose not to.

I find it interesting how many people who think Beck is a crackpot, idiot, Bible thumper and/ or hate monger, who complain he is not worth thinking about, much less paying attention to, yet they SPEND SO MUCH TIME online attacking the man at every possible mention. Somebody is not being honest about their feelings, are they? It has been my observation, that those who yell the loudest, are trying to silence their opponent who speaks the truth. Words out of context are simply that, words out of context. So, Mr. Smith goes to Washington, but Beck has found his way back here, where he belongs. Welcome back. Don't listen to the libs here because they only represent about 20 percent of the population at best. 

Meh.
Meh.

Does it matter? There are people moving to the area every day, and I'm sure that amongst this braintrust at least one of us would label each person an asshole. Deal with it. He'll die eventually.

"We are moving to Dallas and we're going to build a film and television center and radio center in Dallas and we're going to create some jobs with people who know how to create jobs in Texas," he promised." I thought that is what the City of Dallas did with paying Jack Matthews a quarter of a million dollars for his "film studio".......and to think we might have used those funds for the Glenn Beck Empire.  Can we get our money back, Jack?  I think GBTV would be a much better investment.   What do you think Janis Burkland????

Welcome Glenn.  You'll find we have liberals here (ok maybe only a handful) who realize that oil exploration actually involves more risk than what they see in the intro to the Beverly Hillbillies. 

As these posts prove, ours too can be hateful, but you likely will be safer taking your family to an outdoor function here than what you were subjected to in N.Y last month..

Obviously, the wingnuts were directed to UP by some other rightwing website.

Just like when that deal with Tom Hicks happened in London last year, those silly Brits came in and dropped their comment/loads/moneyshots by direction of some British blog/tabloid.
