    Beck, Hannity Limbaugh et al have not learned that speech has consequences. Beck complains that people yell at him – has he listened to his own diatribes? He along with the rest, are scary in the hate and vindictiveness they have for anyone who do not believe the way they do. Beck has actively championed divisiveness in this country. I have always thought of myself as moderate – I look far left leaning when compared to the people that believe his hate speech. Yes, Beck, when you sow hatred you are going to get it back.

      You are not a moderate unless you listen to both side unbiasly and you sound pretty biased there they have also spoken many words of unification where are the actions of the left to come to the center and stop createing monsters out of people on the right and there devisive rhetoric that separates the races instead of bringing them together ed shultz nancy pelosi barack obama joe biden etc.

        The only words of unification I have ever heard coming from Beck,Hannity,O'reilly,Levin,and Limbaugh is for their mutual hatred of the President,because he does not fit,physically,their idea of what a President should look like.I will say this, Alex Jones IS a loon,But Beck calling Jones a Facist,is like a Jackal calling a Hyena greedy. Truth is,their is not a fingernails breadth of difference between any of them,They all preach sedition,hiding behind the flag and the bivle to preach their message of hate. All are experts at "The Big Lie" tactics made famous by Dr. Goebbells.. Go inside any of their private offices and somewhere in there,is an autographed photo of the founder of Facism,Benito Mussolini himself

    How the Hell did Brian Stelter get a job on TV? The guy is horrible and couldn't interview his way out of a wet paper bag. Soft ball after soft ball questions. All that was is a Glenn Beck advertisement while Stelter was humping Becks leg. What a waste of time. Glenn Beck is nothing more that a rich Douchebag that's now trying to save his ass. Getting to many dearth threats Glenn? Just remember YOU made that bed.

    For Beck to warn that we need to watch our rhetoric, lest a real civil war will erupt is like an arsonist now complaining that the fire is getting too hot. He and others of his ilk have been spewing their anger for years (a simple YouTube search will confirm it.) And while I do no condone him and his family hearing insults, he has sadly brought this upon himself. If we wants to calm the waters, he needs to start with a renouncing the violence he supposedly worries about and the groups that foment it.

    Glenn Beck reveals once again what a seriously disturbed individual he is.
    I really think there should be a way to keep disturbed people off the airways.
    It's as dangerous as giving an insane person a gun. He is not insane just disturbed.
    He wants desperately to be loved and continually finds hatred coming at him and can't
    really grasp the why of it. He is a classic Narcissist . It's all about him as it is with so many today. The rise of the so called "Selfie" should tell you how this free floating Narcissism has taken hold of so many personalities. Beck is so unable to explain himself . He thinks he has grown but his views remain at the very bright 15 year old level. He is still going through puberty and can't understand why he is not the most popular personality on TV. Just watching him grapeling with his demons on TV is painful and his inability to clearly explain the premise that he has changed in this interview shows how little he has changed. He knows he should be changing but he can't and all the emotional hand wringing can not help. He should watch his own interviews to get a look at what we are seeing. A sadly confused individual out on a limb that has got to break.

    Brian Stelter needs to work on his interview skills. Numbers of times during this interview his did not let Beck finish his chain of thoughts. He inserts his views and comments at the wrong time.
    I do not know if Glenn Beck is a changed man or not, but Beck and others like Rush and Hannity are the main reason that the Conservative party has weakened. The conservative media is all about rating not the cause.

    Never dreamed I'd ever type this, but he's right! Except when he blames the 'left' equally. The dialogue became insane when we elected (gasp) a Black president. Hannity, Levin, O'Reilly, and yes, Beck, 'preached' hate, just like Father Coughlin in the 1930s who was listened to by all the Irish and were motivated to create our own little Kristallnacht in Brooklyn.
    Problem is that the US was founded by aristocratic men who were followers of the Enlightenment.
    Then we had waves of immigrants from countries where the Enlightenment had very little if any impact (like Ireland).

    As these groups achieve what they believe is the American Dream (money, not freedom to say and listen to other ideas) they have been undoing the most basic of Enlightened ideas (NSA for example). So that's our Civil war today, the blowback of having a Black family in the White House (gasp) together with feudalism where the elite control the masses in thought and deed.
    Glenn Beck is stepping back and reassessing this wave he rose to fame and wealth on and looking at it through his children's eyes and seeing that it is a creepy legacy he's leaving them. To be Glenn Beck's child has benefits and problems, so now he wants to clean it up.
    Better late than never. I actually hope he means what he says and that he is able to restore some dignity to the political discussion and the Cliven Bundy types listen and calm down and put their guns in the gun safes I hope they have.

But try walking in any 'bad' neighborhood in Chicago, NYC, DC, Philly, etc. Chances are today you would not make it out alive. 20 years ago it would have been foolish to do so as well, but today, it would be suicide. You would be murdered just for your skin color, your ethnicity, your cash, or just because your were there. There is a level of anxiety, hatred, and impatience that wasn't as prevalent years ago. I'm not a Beck fan, but I agree with his sentiment that it doesn't take much to set people off today.

You can't fundamentally alter an organism and expect that the results will be exactly, or even remotely, what you think it will be.

We are seeing Americans attack government buildings. How much of a step for more sustained actions? I don't want to be caught up in their craziness. I want to live in peace.

    I sincerely hope there is never a 2nd American Civil War. However, if the politicians in Washington continue to provoke the American People by assaulting the Bill of Rights/Constitution, couple that with millions and millions of unemployed and underemployed Americans, plus approximately 20% of Americans living in Poverty, 8% of America in Prison and you have a recipe for Civil unrest and War.

    For example: The match that started the Syrian Civil War was the beating of two young boy for writing graphite on a town wall. Within a day a rebellion started. Eye witness reports say they have never seen something spread so fast. With in minutes whole cities were aflame.

    8% of Americans are in Prison, most on Marijuana Crimes; 20% to 25% are in Poverty; millions unemployed; anything could be a spark that institutes a rebellion or Civil War. My suggestion to the Politicians in Washington is to stop tormenting the American People. The American People are a very tolerant People but anyone will only take so much.

    Prevent an internal war and start public works programs now. It would not only help America as its infrastructure is falling apart, but it would give decent employment to American workers that are in desperate need of a decent job

      Works programs don't work. A thriving a economy creates jobs. Barry does not want a thriving economy. He wants the productive class to be in harness supporting the non-productive class, who is turn vote for his ilk. So if you want a civil war wherein the non-productives butcher the productives, you and Barry need to figure out who is going to pay the bills after the productives are dead.

      Did you do any research on your facts? Poverty in America is high at 15.1%, but not the 20% you claim. The poverty rate has not been that high since the late 1950's, when it hit 22.4%. No revolution then. It dropeed after that but began rising in 1980, again dopping between 1993 AND 2000. It started rising again in 2000. So it fluctuates.
      As far as your claim about the "majority" of people in jail are there for pot crimes, about 12.7% of people inprison are there for those type of crimes, hardly the "majority".I hardly see a civil war i any of this.

    Reasoned opposition to Obama is not working because he does not compromise. That is what hardcore Marxists do. They never give up until they force their filth on the population. Bloodshed ensues. Look at Russia, China, Cuba, North Korea, all held up by Obama as beacons of progress.

      Please review what is meant by a Marxist. Your president is right of centre. You'd have to be quite far to the right to think Obama was a Marxist. He could not even be considered a moderate socialist. Allowing the insurance companies to skim off the top of the medical money is not leftist.
      He tried to rescue the banks and auto industry and then let them continue to be privately owned. That was an opportunity to seize their assets that would have been hard to resist for a even a mild Marxist.
      Perhaps you have been listening to some right wing entertainers. They spew crap about Obama but they don't believe it. They just do it to make obscene amounts of money. It is like professional wrestling but it pays better.

        Really? You mean heal wounds like when he took office the republicans basically said anything he wants he aren't going to work with him on? Oh and I'm sorry we have the biggest wealth discrepancy in this country since the 1920's (when the great depression hit), so yeah, income inequality is a big deal and affects everyone. The motor of any country is the middle class...but then again you would need to know something, anything about economics to understand that.

    do people still listen and want to interview this idiot? Ya know, I hear all the time about well, the talking heads on both sides are just as bad...the fact is that is total BS. They are both bias yes, but these republican talking heads are flat out liars who lie not out of bad reporting but lie out of want to entertain, without realizing the people they are communicating with don't understand it's a show and take the BS they spout of literally.

    It's people like this that have fostered such negativity in this country, if only we had a smarter electorate who would understand what people like this are doing it wouldn't be so bad. Unfortunately the people who listen to this drivel are the same people who vote for these do nothing clowns we currently have in congress and couldn't coherently speak on one issue currently going on in this country. All they have been taught and told is how Obama has ruined the country, Bengazi, Bengazi, Bengazi, and fed how bad the dems are without realizing the same people spouting this junk have yet...HAVE YET...to come up with any sustainable action plan in over 8 years, yet they continue to vote blindly red. Not talking about all republicans, just talking about the bottom feeders who seem to have more of a voice over there than they should and certainly more than the bottom feeders on the democrat side.

      Please tell me how he is violating the Constitution. I keep hearing that, yet no one can point to one specific act in which he is outside the bounds of the executive powers. Please, enlighten me. I also hear that he has exploded the deficit, yet the executive branch of government doesn't control the purse strings or spending- Congress does. Same with taxes. Again, that too is a legislative responsibility. Considering the conservative and neo-conservative parties have controlled the executive branch of government for 26 out of the last 40 years, and had total control of both legislative and executive branches for 8 of those years, i don't find your argument credible.

Some are as serious as a heart attack. There is a growing number of people in America who feel that their way of life is legitimately being challenged and the threat of losing it has caused many of them to prepare to defend it. Yes Glen Beck is just another Shock Jock like Bill Mahr, Sean Hannity, etc... But all of his words are not untruths. This nation is divided.
