Quote# 96304

Outraged that employees in his organization had begun placing recycling bins throughout The Blaze's headquarters and studio and replaced individual water bottles with a water cooler, Glenn Beck brought the Vice President of Studio Operations onto his radio program today to explain why these changes were taking place.

When she claimed that doing so was saving the company money, Beck not only didn't buy it but also didn't really care and instead issued a new company-wide policy that any employee who buys a compact fluorescent light bulb when non-CFL options are available will be fired.

"Global warming is a pile of crap," Beck declared, adding that he would be issuing a memo informing everyone that "if anyone does anything in this company because of global warming, they're fired."

Odds are this was satire, Beck fancies himself a comedian.

From weeping at the eyes to foaming at the mouth, this guy has such amazing ractions.

Even if global warming were not real, recycling is still resource efficient. And that should be enough for any sane person to participate in it.

And this is why the earth is doomed.

As if we needed more proof that Glenn Beck is completely insane. If you don't care that you're basically throwing money away, you're a nut who has too much damn money.

I would say that someone has gone off the slippery slope, but to be honest, he jumped down there, climbed up, and then jumped down there a second time just for the hell of it to the humor of everyone with more than five brain cells.

Corporations make $$$$$$ from recycling and from marketing new products like CFC and LED bulbs. Why do you hate capitalism?

Flah

Every time I start thinking that Glenn Beck might just be putting on an act, something like this happens.

Oh, please. I sincerely hope he does can someone for getting the wrong bulb. Then I would love to see his "persecuted" ass dragged through a wrongful dismissal suit.

I no longer think Beck is doing this purely for the money; I am convinced that he is utterly insane.

Hopefully this will result in so much money being wasted combined with any fines "the man" may impose on him for not recycling, Beck will be broke & off the air.

How is there anyone left, in America or anywhere else, who does not see Glenn Beck as an incoherent mentally disturbed moron, whose detachment from reality alone should see him sectioned in a mental hospital and prevented from gaining any form of access to the media? And this wacko runs a company and people work for him?

He threatens to fire people for recycling, energy efficiency, and avoiding waste? Things that save money?

What the actual fuck is wrong with this guy? He's so bent on hating the environment he will actively fuck it up even when it costs him to do so. He is a god damned Captain Planet villain.

o.O


recycling is bad because global warming is false? WtF?

Gee, taking orders from Glen Beck must be a little like taking order from a rabid skunk.

9/1/2013 10:10:51 AM



Yeah, because Glenn Beck knows more than all of the climatologists and scientists on earth put together.

Or not...

Yeah, stop infringing on my right to be a myopic, greedy, stupid a$$hole. You're being unAmerican.

Glen Beck is doing a good job concealing how crazy he really is. I suppose his crew edits out the parts where Glen is eating is own feces.

Um...is it legal to fire someone for using the wrong light bulb. If that's the case, I can see lawsuits happening.

Wow. What is it with these nutjobs? Even if you don't accept the reality of climate change, aren't conserving energy, reducing waste and preserving the environment acceptable goals? What weird folks.

Firing people over lightbulbs? That's freedom right there baby!

placing recycling bins



Yup, a good old Boy Scout paper drive is about as anti-American as it gets and is part of the liberal "War on God".

Scrap metal is sin.



When a good 'ol country song sings about a "scrap yard dog", it's means the hounds of Hell!

What a childish asshole. Glenn Beck, just go away.

And Glenn Beck's transformation into a captain planet villian is... 76% percent complete. All he needs now is an oil/coal themed drill tank and a spandex costume and he'll be facing a multinational group of teenagers in no time.
