Johnny doesn't normally get the chance to speak out on national events nor politics in general. He tries to stay pretty middle of the road. This however cuts a bit close to home here for us. First off, Mr. NYC Crybaby Glenn Beck, do us all a favor and STFU. Does a song called 'Born in the USA' HAVE to be patriotic? Did you think to tell Ronald Reagan who wanted to use the song in his 1984 Presidential campaign it wasn't patriotic enough for you or were you still in your cocaine and booze fueled haze back then? For those who may not know the true meaning of the song it's about a soldier returning from Vietnam disillusioned with what he finds when he comes back and cannot find a job. Gee, that never happened did it Glenn? Maybe only a few thousand times. God forbid an artist would make social commentary on what he sees going on around him, I mean it's almost what artists do. Anyways Beck, who the hell are YOU to start whining about it? You have a radio and teevee show which allows YOU to make social commentary and you're not even an artist (nor all that well informed apparently). You made over $14 million dollars last year so feel free to drop the everyman routine. You no more speak for the masses than Johnny does.
We probably would have even skipped this little embarrassing incident for Beck-o if he also this week hadn't DEMANDED certain people LEAVE their churches. Yes, he did. He feels he and he alone is the one able to tell you that your church is no good (So much for freedom of religion eh Glenn?). What kind of brownshirt egomaniac tells people their church is not acceptable? You wanna hear something really unpatriotic and unAmerican?
"I beg you look for the words social justice or economic justice on your church Web site," he said. "If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. ... Am I advising people to leave their church? Yes! If you have a priest that is pushing social justice, go find another parish," he said. "Go alert your bishop and tell them, 'Excuse me, are you down with this whole social justice thing?' If it's my church, I'm alerting the church authorities: 'Excuse me, what's this social justice thing?' And if they say, 'Yeah, we're all in on this social justice thing,' I am in the wrong place." -- Glenn Beck
Stunning in it's stupidity isn't it? One of the tenets of America, the freedom of religion, upsets Beck because he thinks HE and HE ALONE can tell you what is appropriate worship. This is so far out of bounds it's stultifying. So not only does Beck think he gets to tell everyone which music is good for America and what isn't, he also gets to tell people this house of worship is unacceptable. What a fracking disgrace.
God forbid your church would consider helping the less fortunate and looking out for the weakest of society, kinda like Jesus used to do. Glenn Beck thinks he knows better than Jesus apparently. Now, Johnny isn't religious in the least and doesn't believe in God but realizes many of you do and that's GREAT. Isn't freedom to help the less fortunate and writing songs about social injustice a part of the American fabric? We think so and we also think Glenn Beck has lost touch with real American values.
And anybody who might be tempted to show up here after incessantly Googling their idol Glenn Beck's name to hassle LIBRUL writers would do well to read a LOT of the posts on this site that also trash dozens of Democrats before opening their pie holes.
