Beck is a Fascist

Beck is a fascist who is totally opposed to real American values and principles inshrined in the Constitution. As all fascists do, he lies, twists history, makes up his own history, and hates freedom of speech for anyone who disagrees with him. Geico should be commended for pulling their advertising.

Unless you have actually listened to Glenn Beck you have no idea what you're talking about. He actually exposed ACORN & the communist Van Jones. He has done more good for this country than Obama hands down. I will be switching insurance companies pronto! ANY company that chooses a side like Obama does needs to be boycotted as well. All Obama has done is divide us instead of uniting us. No one boycotts the likes of Bill Maher or Tina Fey for their attacks on women. Digusting people!

It does not matter what GEICO does with there money as long as they cover there claims first which in my case they are not doing. After 35 years with GEICO and watching all there commercials I now see they only advertise to get your money but when it comes time to pay a claim, they fight you tooth and nail. Because they put so much into there adds saying you can save with GEICO, they forgot to mention, If you have a claim, you will get what you paid for, NOTHING. I have been recommending GEICO to people for years, but now I see what a big mistake that was. Since I now have a claim, I found so many people with the same problem, meaning GEICO doing nothing about there claim. Also, your insurance company is supposed to be on your side and not against you like they are being to me. They also make it impossible to get in touch with any of the high officials at there corporate level. So bottom line, DONT go with GEICO, you will get exactly what you paid for, NOTHING!

Kudos to Geico and the other sane companies that yanked their advertising from Beck's hateful and laughably false revisionism. His show is over now. Good riddance!

And no, there are NOT more Americans to the right of the podium than to the left. You think that by yelling louder and making a scene, we'll think there are more of you? Just check out the comments here; they are 10 to 1 AGAINST Beck, and FOR Geico.

It is reassuring to know that when fringe hate mongers start clamoring to hijack this great nation, there is a vast Center in this country that will rise up to shake off the tyranny of the few.

Go back to your dark corner where you belong. There are vastly more of us than you. We are taking back our country from the ignorant haters.

I have to laugh when I read comments about Beck the idiot or Beck the Neo Nazi.  It is so sad to see so many people say such stupid things about something they know absolutely nothing about and don't even watch.  They read it somewhere or repeat it from someone they admire and just swallow it hook line and sinker.  Then they go show they're ignorance by making comments like these.  Why not read a book or here's an idea...watch the show and see for yourselves what Beck is saying or doing.  Good grief.

Beck is a idiot...the whole Fox network are for big business

to hell with the general poulation who are out of work, no health insurance, and a group in washington that said NO to everything Obama tried to do.

If you will look at the graphs of the debt in our history, the Reagan years and the years of BS Bush were the highest in getting this country into more debt. When Bush was in for those nighmarish 8 years our debt went up 85%....I believe we need a revolution in this country. The people need our country back not a bunch of corporations taking it over.

I'm ashamed of our politicians....we need term limits for both houses..no more than 8 years...like the president. 

If the religious right want to get involved in politics...let them pat taxes like everyone else!

Isn't that the turtle mocking the armadillo's hard shell?

Hilarious that you think they should leave politics out of a business decision.  Isn't that exactly what your encouraging when you ask for support in your boycott?  I can't imagine blindly giving my business to any company - personal politics always factors in for me, as it does for you clearly, with your recommendation that Geico reinstate their ad spots on a neo-Nazi "news" show.  When you incite people with inflammatory and hate-based rhetoric, you pay the consequences that are dealt out by consumers or companies who have no patience with such crap.  I'm glad I stopped by Boycott Owl today.  I will be giving my business to Geico now, for two reasons:  First, to show support for the sensible and character rich who use their business to better the world and help drive the idiot and violent right wing crackpots into the pathetic dark corner which they deserve, and two, to show that when you start a campaign to boycott a company, it may backfire when intelligent and progressive minds are introduced to your backward ideology.  Thank you.  D. McGraw.

I hate the Geico ads, but I applaud Geico's decision to stop advertising on the show of this fraud, Glenn Beck.

His awareness of real historical data, as well as historical methodologies, is pitiful.

Yea, I'm adding my 2 cents worth on this childish boycott. Seems as though people are no longer permitted to voice a comment without being called a "Communist" or a "Marxist" or some other inappropriate name.  This boycott shows me there are too many children playing on their parents' computer.  I'd say go ahead and cry, whine, and throw your temper tantrums and see what that'll do for you!  Grow up, accept life as it comes, and adjust.

Has anyone - besides me - ever noticed that when a business decision is made, all the supposedly intelligent people suddenly start to whine and cry?  Obviously GEICO has a better place to spend their money than on a POS like Beck and Company!  I'd bet the top executives at GEICO won't lose a minutes sleep over their (excellent) decision to pull their financial support from FOX, the most biased news on the tube!

Glad to hear GEICO is no longer sponsoring the hate, lies, and the anti-American slander and biased comments over the air waves by FOX Noise.  Inasmuch as FOX Noise receives millions in support from the GOP, I'd say let the GOP continue supporting the likes of Beck, Palin, O'Reilly and the other hate mongers (Bush, Cheney, Rove, etc.).

Sit Down & Shut Up

So GEICO has put their money where there mouth is and isn't sponsoring Glenn Beck. That is more of a pressuring from some special interests more than "freedom of speech". So it's their right to pull their ads. It's our right to boycott them if we wish. The progressives aren't happy with having 9/10ths of the networks spouting liberal crap. They want to muzzle the one remaining that is trying to present the other side, and everyone else as well.  Funny how rights are so one-sided If the USA sucks so bad that we have to change it, why not find a "better" place to live that's already that way! Don't let the door hit you on your way out.

To Whoever Wrote "GEICO IS MAKING A BIG MISTAKE!!!"

Just so you know, anyone who is not a member gets the title "anonymous" when they enter there post.  This is only one of many reason however, for why you most likely succeeded in convincing no one about the rightness of your stance on this issue (except for people who are even greater bigots than yourself of course!)

To the reader, it is evident that you attack the other commenter's character because you do not have any actual arguments.  Moreover, I am curious to know when you say, "Maybe you should go live in one of those [communist] countries for a while," are you advocating to us to go and live in Communist Russia?  Of course, I can try, but my time machine isn't working too well; can I use yours?

 I also find it amusing that you tell the other commenter to, "go back to school" even though it appears that your response was constructed by someone with the grammar skills of a fifth grader.

Finally, I just wanted to praise your argument on Glenn Beck.  Essentially, in your entire rant, you are trying to prove that Glenn Beck is a good guy.  How do you go about achieving this?  Well, by saying Glenn Beck is good guy!  If the reader can't understand that, they just must be retarded right?

If you actually support conservatives and the free market like your claim too, you would be in support of Gieco's move.  Clearly, if Gieco is advertising more heavily towards the liberal audience, they believe they will earn a higher revenue for whatever reasons.  It is because companies are making decisions like this constantly, about where the demand is, how to optimize revenue, etc., that the free market works so beautifully; this is Adam Smith's "invisible hand" at work.

Overall, I really hope that people in this country are able to express themselves better than you can.  Otherwise, zero intellectual or cultural progress will occur, and we will end up with people resorting to rude and abrasive language,  just to tear other people down.

First, I have been a customer of Geico for over 14 yrs. I have never seen the Co. take a position in politics.

Second, "Anonymous" you don't have the balls to Identify yourself so you have no say.

Thirdly, and most importantly, you are ignoant. You should not reproduce or vote. You must be mentally challenged.

Glenn Beck is one of the nations hero's to stand up to the people trying to destory this country. Like Harry Reid, and Pelosi. You would mostlly likely vote for Chee Shavaris,[I know I spelled it wrong] He too was a communist and killed off 10s of thousands and is praised by nuts like you. You need to go back to school and or read about history, communists like Stalin, Marx, and one of today Kim Ill Jun. Maybe you should go live in one of those countries for a while. If you think Beck is wrong DO THE RESEARCH. You will discover how right he is. If you are not the answer you are clearly part of the problem.

I have been to war, no one wins. This country was built on GOD, Guns, and Glory. You should learn to be an AMERICAN. Learn the U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights, and only in AMERICA, could you publish such trash.

Geico has every right to select who they want to sponsor/advertise with.  But if they do because they do not like what the man has to say then they are being discriminate.  So if I don't like what the Red cross, NAACP oe WETA stand for then I can drop them or exculde them from advertising on my popular show or network...right?  RIGHT! but then I'd have Al sharpton and the ACLU trying to sue me over racialy intolerance and even being a racist.

How can people make comments in favor of Beck who uses them & makes millions from them


we should all be concerned when corporations get into politics

My guess is that who ever wrote this works for Haliburton, I mean - Cheney, $50 toilet seat covers, I told a Republican about Haliburton, he didn't believe me. Six months later after see an expose on Haliburton, he said that he was no longer going to vote Repblican. A true story unlike others on here.

 "Those people cheering Geico probably have something else to say about Haliburton, eh?  Don't be political idiots. Think for yourselves, left nuts!" - Who at Haliburton wrote this?

Also I would think that this boycott was written by someone from Beck's show. Or someone that is really clueless. Geico should be commended for taking a stand against mean spirited multi millionaire commentators, like Beck & Rush, (or rather as their co-horts call them - entertainers). What is sad is that the uneducated are being used.

Glenn Beck is a dangerous, uninformed, hateful person who is able to sway the opinion of the uneducated. Fortunately, the percentage of these "right-wing" lunatics is very small, compared to the rest of the US consumer base. They seem "larger than life" because they whine loudly and try to manipulate public opinion without educating themselves with the facts. Funny also how so many of the postings of these extremists have incomplete sentences and misspellings in their posts...very telling. Voting with your dollar is important, but be sure to get the facts and educate yourselves. We live in a society that supports the 1st Amendment. Beck and his ilk want to take that right away from us all.

I left geico right after i heard about this. They seemed very concerned, one of the executives actually called me to try and bring me back. I think they lost a lot of business because of their little foray into politics. Ironically, they never chose to advertise on Beck's show. They just paid a bulk fee for random slots. They could have said this and left well enough alone but Geico decided to become politically active.

Left or right, we should all be concerned when corporations are becoming the driving force behind our politics. In fact, I would think the LEFT would be particularly concerned, considering the wealth in this country seems to be mostly in the hands of those on the right. Those people cheering Geico probably have something else to say about Haliburton, eh?  Don't be political idiots. Think for yourselves, left nuts!

GEICO's as Stupid as a Caveman!

Way to go GEICO!  "Caving" to the left.  Figures you're as stupid as a caveman!  Glenn Beck rocks...  Hmmmm  Maybe he should throw a few stones your way and knock a little sense into you.  A caveman would understand that, right?

Good Job Geico

To stay affiliated with Glenn "hate-monger" Beck in any way, shape, or form is definitely bad for business. Though his supporters are a loud bunch, they are thankfully also a small one. Their maniacal bark is much worse than their actual bite. Good riddance I say. Soon there will be another global tragedy like Haiti for them to spit on, and Geico will be far from their feeble little minds.

Glad to hear so many people switching to Gieco because of this anti-boycott. There may be hope for this country after all.

Glenn Beck not losing much

Glenn Beck should be glad Geico is not going to advertise on his show.  Geico does not have the integrity to be good enough to be a sponsor.  Pray you are never the victim of one of their policy holders.  You will end up having to use your own insurance for damages then sue them for restitution.

Goodbye, Geico!

Goodbye, Geico!  Our auto insurance with you expires October 31 & we're switching to Met Life.  Better coverage at a cheaper price & we refuse to support companies that cave into political pressure.  There are a lot of consumers out there who drive cars and support Glenn Beck.  You just lost another one!

The American customer is a powerful voice (hence the power of boycotts) and Geico is a customer of Glenn Beck's advertising services.  Why in the world shouldn't Geico have the right to pull their business from a provider for political reasons? FURTHERmore even if Geico were acting apolitically, then chosing to advertise with someone else might simply reflect their understanding that many of their own customers might be turned off by their association with Beck- a smart business move, wouldn't you say?

I Was Unaware of This Boycott

But now that I am I'll be sure to give Geico my business.

 

Anyway why would you want to punish Geico?  By allowing Geico to do as it sees fit and pull its advertising from Beck's show Beck will have yet another opportunity to blubber like a five-year-old on national TV.  My God how proud all you Beck Kool-Aid drinkers must be every time the nutty alcoholic Mormon turns on the waterworks and begins crying.

an overly emotional actor. He is NOT a newsman. He should be on NBC with Friends. Or better yet a tele-novela.

Go Geico!  I can't think of any good reason to have Beck in any speaking role for the purposes of good capitalist advertising.  He is best served as an ignored dish:  Much like arugala in an untouched salad.

Free Market

I dont see why conservatives would have a problem with this. Isn't this the perfect example of the free market. If a company does something improper or supports an agenda that is not yours you have every right to let them know that you will stop using their product or service.

My father was a true libertarian (before it was Republicans started saying they were) and he always defended the free market by saying we need no government control of companies because if a company does something the people don't approve of the people will stop buying from them.

 

Or is this one of those "it's ok when WE do it but don't you dare do it" things. Like accusing people of giving aid and comfort to our enemies by speaking ill of the president when we have troops in the field.

Hypocrites

The Geico Marketing Department is full of double-speaking Hypocrites... they have stated that their official position is that "Gieco does not necessarily agree-with or endorse the programs on which it advertises"... and yet that is PRECISELY the reason that that cowered to the radicals at "ColorOfChange.org" and have chosen to attempt to sensor the voice of conversatives. They made this decision solely because they do not agree with the “opinions expressed” on Glen Beck’s show.

Notice that they do not yank their advertising off of the David Letterman Show (even if he refers to a well-liked Conservative Governor as a "slutty flight-attendant" and makes sexually degrading comments about her children). They do not yank their advertising off of the Jay Leno Conan O'Brien Jimmy Fallon The View The Opera Show MSNBC CNN or any other program based on "opinions expressed".... only Glen Beck as a Conservative!

As a long-standing customer with Geico (over 25 years) I am saddened that this company (after taking over $30000.00 of premiums from me) is choosing to "play politics" and "sensor opinions".

It's time to encourage EVERYONE to leave Geico... because WE DON'T AGREE WITH THEIR "OPINION" either.

Bye Bye Stupid Lizard Guy!!!

Thank you for the information of the boycott. Just like these companies (GEICO P& G Progressive- the CEO of Prgressive is very good friends with G. Soros and his ilk.) can block advertising on shows they don't consider politically in line with I can refuse to purchase from these companies.  I won't go to see movies with S. Pean S. Sarandon and her live-in actor partner G. Clooney Jane Fonda etc.

I work for GEICO and to sit here and listen to you all rant and rave about how we pulled our advertising because we side with one polictal party or another is wrong.  We believe in our right to free speech just as Glen Beck has his right to say what ever the hell he wants.  To read the things that people say about us as a collective unit is wrong.  We each have a right to believe what we want that is why we live in the US.  I just wish people would understand that being in the center of a political debate is not where we wanted to be.  We are neither for not against Glen Beck we are indifferent.  Each one of us has that right to be neutral.  So you boycot my company we lose money we lose jobs we go on unemployment and we lose everything...God I am proud to be an American

I have just changed from GEICO to Allstates after 3 years of giving them my business.  They will be sorry because we are the customers the people making them money.   I guarantee most of this radical group are unemployed and uninsured.  They have nothing to do but harass these companies.  Companies should never get involved in politics.  Very bad business decision.

Smart Move, NOT!!!!

Thank you for your continued support of the Glen Beck Show and not caving into the radical left attack machine.

Just posted my comments on a BUY CONSERVATIVE forum.

“Did you all see the heavy Radio Shack NASCAR advertising Sunday they even ran back to back ads for “THE SHACK”. How unfortunate as  I see today they been placed on alert  as a new radical left supporter. Just as I replaced  my GIECO auto insurance finding better insurance for a lesser price I feel it is best to shop elsewhere.  In the Metro Phoenix area I suggest looking at Walmart for toys Alltel or Verizon for phones and Best Buy Fry’s Electronics or Walmart for computers TV’s and other consumer electronics.”

I would love to see Fox news refuse to accept any advertisers who don't want their ads aired during Glen Beck's show. Fox is the top rated news channel so screw Geico Et Al let them advertise on one of the Obamabot channels where nobody will see them.

Geico certainly has a right to align itself with people who do not understand freedom of speech and those who think it was wrong for them to do so have a right to let them know. Yes in the USA we do still have freedom of speech and so do you who don't agree. As for me I choose to BOYCOTT!!!! Go Mr. Beck!

I am pulling my auto insurance from your company as of tomorrow.  Most of us who watch Glenn Beck and FOX NEWS are the hardworking tax payers who buy your insurance and/or products and invest in your companies.   I am writing to all the other advertisers as well.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK GLENN . . .

So to categorize a company who pulls advertising from a talk show as socialists is wrong.  Considering they are owned by the richest man in the worl next to Bill gates.  I am a conservative to the core but to boycott companies over this nonsense is anti-capitalism in its own right.

i JOIN THE BOYCOTT AGAINST GEICO.  

My analysis:  Don't support GEICO's products or their liberal funding projects.   "Productive fulfilled people determine where to put their efforts choosing to wisely utilize precious time…to build up. 

GLEN BECK SHOW IS GOOD FOR AMERICA.  NOW GEIGO REPRESENTATIVE STATES "It is of little benefit to us if a program gets so much attention that our message is drowned out. "

BECK RATINGS ARE:  Fox News Beck 2417000

GEICO'S MESSAGE:  WE DON'T SUPPORT DEBATE AND ANALYSIS OF FACTS.  WE DON'T WANT TO BE CAUGHT DEAD WITH THE CROWD WHO ARE DETERMINED TO NOT GO WITH THE FLOW--LIKE DEAD FISH DO--and actually think analyze the facts make decisions and then cast their vote.

Thank you, Geico!

THANK YOU for dropping your sponsorship of Glen Beck's show!! His rants and raves are his right - but he (and his "network" ) also needs to know his "hate speech" has financial consequences. Also - compare his "rants" about the "state of the U.S. health care system" in January 2008 (when he had just had a MINOR health scare) to what he is saying now. He is either a liar very confused or just insane. . .or all of the above????
