It's all about the Benjamins, right Glenn?
I've occasionally watched and listened to Glenn Beck. Sometimes, he's informative and passionate about the decline of our country as a result of a leftist agenda.
I've been impressed by his seeming altruism, and his ability to explain the issues in a way that actually makes sense.
He's been a huge part of the Tea Party Movement, and his involvement has led to a great deal that has worked to spread the word.
He's not doing it to save his country. He's not doing it because it's the right thing to do. He's not doing it because he, apparently, fears our country is at risk.
He's doing it for the money.
The end result is his show has been reduced to little more than an info-mercial, a platform where he can shill his books and his personal appearances.
Most recently, it's been this American Revival shtick.
So, I thought I'd check into ticket prices for his upcoming appearance:
Glenn Beck's American Revival
Glenn Beck's American Revival is a daylong event where you can find information, inspiration, and the preparation to help turn this country around...

That's right: tickets to see Beck's "save the country" tour cost $134.75
I'm sorry, Glenn, but if your true aim is to reverse disaster and save this country from the forces that would destroy it, you cannot charge each of us $134.75 to hear that message.
That is an absurd amount of money to charge... and it cheapens what you are trying to tell us.
You have become a political parody. And you're clearly driven by The Money.
And I am out.
