I find this so hard to believe, although it would be amazing if true.

There's been some interesting commentary.

Glenn Beck Loses His Voice And Gains A Soul

"Glenn Beck lost his voice on Monday but proceeded to host his show using a silent monologue of cards and grimaced facial expressions, nearly lapsing into tears during what is either a profound perspective change or the greatest television stunt since Kimye.

Cue the languid violins.

Apparently the sudden loss of his voice has forced him to reexamine the entirety of his Existence and Purpose as a Human Being on this Earth. In order to spread his latest dawning of perspective, he asks audience to think of what their last words would be were they to experience the insurmountable tragedy that is temporary vocal chord paralysis.

With his teary eyes and weary half-smile, his affliction almost seems genuine. Without words, he humbly acknowledges the 'mean words' he has said and the damage he has done. He suggests that he will only use his voice for 'honor','courage,' and 'love'—big promises for a man who, of late, called Michelle Obama "a monster…Lady MacBeth…a frightening woman",deemed the NAACP an affront to Dr. Martin Luther King's memory and suggested morbidly obese people be left to die.

Whether or not one agrees with his politics, people are more often than not, far more affected by his delivery. He acknowledges this, noting his movement from the ' divisive rhetoric' he has previously championed into a softer tone. This isn't a break from politics but rather, a step away from verbal lancing.

Only time will tell if this change is real and permanent. Until then, keep your eyes open for any notecard that reads, 'Just kidding, I hate neutrality' or 'Was it the glasses that made you trust me?'."

                                                 + + + + + +

And speculation that his medical woes are caused by aspartame poisoning --
Glenn Beck and Aspartame Poisoning

Losing one's voice, even if only possibly temporary, is a life-shattering experience. Perhaps something good will come of it in Glenn Beck's case. Time will tell. It's hard to forget his spewed hate, lies, and devisiveness.

I'll just have to wait and see...

Linn

If I recall correctly, he's acted contritely before. It pretty much lasted until the next show. He's too much of a publicity whore to NOT eventually attempt to being outrageous, provocatively stupid, and just plain sack-of-rats bonkers.

I predict it's temporary. I would love to be wrong.

You know...Don Cherry would never pull off a stunt like this. That's because he's a man's man! I think Glenn Beck should get some counseling from Canada's greatest hockey commentator.

Hmmm. Well, that's interesting. And surprising. I watched his whole cue card monologue. I've paid very little attention to Glenn Beck in the past...probably would hardly even know about him if he weren't a favorite "black sheep" of the USA political threads on this forum...in other words, a great target for any of us "liberals" to have fun with and work up some righteous contempt about whenever things are getting a bit slow.

But...and although I'm definitely on the Left, not the Right, politically speaking...

I agree with virtually everything he said on those cue cards. I also think he's probably sincere in what he's saying.

Now go ahead. Rant cynically, joke about it, froth at the mouth, curse, sneer, question my sanity, roll your eyes, throw in a little ridicule, and just continue enjoying your usual banquet of negative feelings. He's still right in what he says on those cue cards...even if he IS Glenn Beck.

Don Cherry was one reason I quit watching "Hockey Night in Canada."

I have never seen Glenn Beck so I can't comment, but it is hard to visualize anyone less desirable than Cherry.

I would have agreed with everything he said, and answered "it oughtn"t to be" if he had just said "goodwill" instead of God. As it was, yes, it was divisive. People of all faiths and people of none. People of any color or genger doesn't lend itself to "and none" though...

Glenn Beck's little cue card dissertation reminds me of something a co-worker once said. I was working for the telephone company as an operator at the time. Said co-worker and I were on our break, sitting in the coffee room.

The subject of pop singer Anita Bryant, famous for being the spokesperson for the Florida Orange Commission ("A day without orange juice is like a day without sunshine.") and for being a very loud anti-gay activist in Dade County, Florida. She was extremely anti-gay and didn't hesitate to say some pretty outrageous things. Also, she was very religious and would frequently change a few words in a pop song she was recording, turning it into something of a hymn. Damned annoying if you happened to like the song as it was originally written.

Since she had been particularly and outrageously vocal in the news lately, she was the topic of discussion. The fellow who was helping me drain the coffee pot commented that "She said this morning that she regarded suppressing or eliminating homosexuality as her 'Holy Mission.' And, she went on to say that she knew God had His hand on her."

"But I knew that wasn't true," he continued, "because if God really did have His hand on her, He would have had it over her big, fat mouth!"

P. S. By the way, Little Hawk:

Well, I've tried twice - and neither time did I get through the whole thing. Tedious. And obviously inspired by the recent videoing done by two youngsters, one of whom was terminally ill and the other who died by her own hand.

What's with Beck and Limbaugh? I know they say that L's deafness was induced by his drug use- what has Beck taken?

I listen to Beck in the car on the way to appointments. On a weekly basis it seems he announces that tomorrow he will have a mind blowing earth shattering story that will change the way we live and think forever....

And call all your friends so they don't miss it.

His program is just another infomercial selling the Glen Beck product.

Saul, that link was published two days after the link in the OP. His first career was as a comedian. I'm sure he thinks of it as just another performance piece. There's nothing real about Glen Beck.

When I heard that Mr. Beck "lost his voice", I fell to my knees and said: "Thank you god ... I am a believer ... my prayers have been answered!" ( you, of course, believe that, don't you?)

It was about three (?) years ago that the mayor of Mr. Beck's home town of Mt. Vernon, Washington, took it upon himself to declare a "GLENN BECK DAY." He apparently did this on his own authority and accepted little input from the city council members or other leaders in this small town.

Bride Judy and I live in Everett, Washington. My three children, and grandchildren, live in Bellingham, about 60 miles North of Everett. Halfway between these two towns lies Mt. Vernon. Because of family, we often travel North, and until "Glenn Beck Day", we usually stopped in Mt. Vernon for lunch and gas.

As soon as I heard of the town celebrating "Glenn Beck Day", I wrote notes to the City Council members and the President of the Chamber of Commerce. I told them that, because of the town's actions, we would never again stop in Mt. Vernon on our frequant trips forth and back to Everett. I also sent a copy to the mayor's office. I receieved a letter from the mayor ... he wasn't pleased!

I have remained true to my pledge.

I now am given to understand that that idiot mayor is no longer in office. bob(deckman)nelson
