Is Glenn Beck Suicidal or Paranoid?

Well, actually, he may be both.

On his Fox News program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed that he suspects some nefarious, unspecified, malicious entity has it out for him. He beseeched his audience to be vigilant on his behalf, lest some dreaded fate befall him:

“If I’m ever in a weird car accident, or I commit suicide or something, after the media stops celebrating my death, could they check into it? Because I’m not suicidal. And I’m a pretty good driver.”

Apparently Beck thinks that assassins are stalking him, and they plan to disguise his murder as an accident or a suicide. That demonstration of classic paranoia might be sufficient to raise concerns about his mental well being (such as it is). The problem is that part of his comment was not entirely truthful – and I’m not talking about his driving skills.

Beck has written about his suicidal tendencies wherein he threatened to snuff himself out on more than one occasion. He even recorded a rambling video that included a confession that he was “full-fledged suicidal.” Beck is a recovering alcoholic and there is a history of mental illness in his family. His mother committed suicide when he was thirteen. His brother also committed suicide.

Given this background, I think that upon hearing that Beck was in a car accident, or that he committed suicide, I’m not sure that my first thoughts would be of some Illuminati-inspired murder conspiracy.

Or maybe that’s just what they want me to think…..

  1. In the column linked above referencing Beck’s suicidal tendencies, there were a couple of other interesting revelations:

    1) Explaining why he didn’t carry out his self-destructive urges, Beck said, “This is why I didn’t kill myself, and I’m ashamed to say it but it was cowardess (sic) that saved my life. I was afraid of the pain. I was afraid of putting the gun in my mouth. I couldn’t throw myself off a roof. That would freak me out. If I could have just gone to sleep. I don’t know why I was too stupid to think of ODing on something, but I guess I was doing it in a way with all of the alcohol.” Gee…why doesn’t it surprise me that Beck was scared and stupid?

    2) Describing why he turned his life over to God beck said, “[B]ecause then you can blame God for everything that goes wrong and you were like, hey, I wasn’t steering, you were the one driving; you took me here.” That’s right…God helps those who shirk responsibility.

    I also came across this juicy morsel from an interview Beck gave to the Mormon Times: “My hope is that we can stop believing the cartoon characters that have been created. I don’t know any Democrats who want to turn us into Stalin’s Russia.” Does he watch his own show? Because that’s pretty much all it’s about is cartoon representations of Democrats as Socialists.

  2. You must have a pretty sad life. Writing your crazy blogs about people going through hard times in their lives. Bravo! Job well done. Leave it to a liberal to make everyone sound as miserable and bitter as they are.

    • Leave it to a conservative to project their own misery on others.

      I’m just pointing out things Beck himself wrote about, and how it contradicts the paranoid delusions he asserted a couple of days ago on the air. Way to miss the point, Chaser.

      And by the way, I am neither sad, miserable, nor bitter – much to your disappointment I’m sure. To the contrary, I have a great deal of fun with my crazy blog. Especially when it draws responses like yours.

      • Wow. I had always heard about the vitriolic hatred of the left finding outlet in cyberspace. You small dark little souls really are pathetic. Mocking the sorrows of an alcoholics battle against the bottle and his own crippling depression is classless. This from the folks who accuse the right of being exponents of hate.

        • Could you please point out where in my posting I am mocking Beck? Or where I am being hateful?

          I repeat, the only thing I have said here is what Beck himself said. His paranoia is obvious.

  3. Glenn Beck – Tin Foil Hat Irrelevant.

    Nuff said.

  4. “Liberals” are communists and socialists and I can’t wait to start killing them….
