In my email: Subject: Does Glenn Beck Speak for You?

https://mediamatters.org/donate/?src=bumpersticker Dear Friend,

For more than three hours on radio and one hour on Fox News every weekday, Glenn Beck offers his dwindling audience a toxic stew of conspiracy theories, provably false claims, violent rhetoric and unfair accusations.

Here at Media Matters for America, we devote time and effort every day to cataloguing, exposing and debunking Glenn Beck’s lies so that his dangerous effect on our national debate doesn’t go unchallenged. You can help us in this important fight and spread the message where you live. With your donation, we’ll send you our new “Glenn Beck Doesn’t Speak for Me” bumper sticker.

Donate today and say: Glenn Beck Doesn’t Speak for Me.

Here are just a few of the low points of Becks past year and a half:

  • Hijacking the civil rights movement and saying he is going to “reclaim” it.
  • Attempting to rescue the legacy of Joe McCarthy and kicking off his own hunt for “communists” in government.
  • Attacking President Obama as a “racist” who has “a real problem with white people.”
  • Going after Obama’s family, including his daughter Malia.
  • Fearmongering in ways that help shady advertisers sell their products.
  • Knitting issues like climate change, net neutrality and immigration into vast socialist or criminal conspiracies.

While his ratings are shrinking, Beck still commands a platform that allows him to misinform hundreds of thousands of people. Viewers who look to Glenn Beck as a reliable source are coming away with a false and terrifying impression of the world. And with Beck’s tone infecting other right-wing pundits and putting outlandish political extremism into mainstream debate, Beck’s heated, hateful rhetoric isn’t just his problem — it’s ours.

Enough’s enough. It’s time to push back. You can be part of the fight to hold Beck accountable.

Donate today and say: Glenn Beck Doesn’t Speak for Me.

For a donation of $10 or more, we’ll send you one of our new “Glenn Beck Doesn’t Speak for Me” bumper stickers. You can let your friends and neighbors know that you stand against the rage, lunacy and outright lies of Glenn Beck.

Thank you for your support.
