Glenn Beck Declares War On Soccer

Just when you thought the world of sports was safe from a delusional, drug or alcohol induced, hyperventilatey attack from ol’ Beckerhead at FOX, you were wrong.   On his radio show last week Glenny Boy said the following:

“I don’t get the baseball thing, but the soccer thing, I hate it so much — probably because the rest of the world likes it so much, and they riot over it, and they continually try to jam it down our throat… It doesn’t matter how you sell it to us. It doesn’t matter how many celebrities you get. It doesn’t matter how many bars open early. It doesn’t matter how many beer commercials they run. We don’t want the World Cup. We don’t like the World Cup. We don’t like soccer. We want nothing to do with it. You can package it any way — you can spend all kinds of money. You can force it on our television sets. We will not enjoy the World Cup.”

What a shock, the unrefined, uncultured mouthbreathers on the right don’t particularly care for the world’s most popular sport.   And just like the Drugster Limbaugh, there’s that “jam it down our throats” comment again in Glenny Boy’s rant.  

And really Becky, “they riot over it”?   You of all people should be criticizing people for rioting, considering it is YOUR ‘team’ that has people who say things like “gather your (treasonous) armies” against the government and hijack town hall meetings to read corporate talking points.   That would be like me posting a rant against people with hair that’s not the natural color. 😉

Sorry Glenny Boy, this is the WORLD Cup.  You might think you’re the shit and all, but more people like soccer than you.  I know that must be eating at you inside.

    It’s that typical, conservative brain fart thought – that no other countries in the world matter except for us.

  2. Princess says:

    personally, i think that soccer is for the pu**y’s that can’t get into football. but that’s my personal opinion ONLY.
    but if one really thinks about it, if it’s such a “great” sport, then why haven’t WE as a country embraced it in the way we have other sports? hmmmmmm
    and again, PB & Girly, just as you two are “entitled” to YOUR opinions………..as much as some people disagree with them and as much as they are WRONG…………Glenn Beck is “entitled” to his as well.
    opinions are like buttholes………..EVERYONE has one. LMAO

      Are you that full of yourself that something cannot be good unless the US approves of it?

      Actually the US has embraced soccer somewhat. As I look at the TV schedule for ESPN today I see World Cup Soccer on all day. If it were true that “nobody in the US likes soccer”, then why is the nation’s largest sports broadcaster spening so much time covering something nobody watches?

  3. therealgirlscout says:

    That’s a good question. If every other country in the world has embraced soccer, why hasn’t the U.S.?? WE are the “odd men out” in this case. WE are the ONLY ones who don’t care for soccer. Personally, I HATE football, but I don’t care who likes it or who watches it or bets on it, etc. I’m not badmouthing football like Beck was badmouthing soccer. I just don’t talk about it, because I have no interest in it. So why does Beck have to badmouth soccer?? My OPINION is that he does it to mock other countries, because he doesn’t like them. My OPINION is that he has the ‘mindset’ of isolationism and probably wishes we were the only country that matters on Earth. Just my OPINION.

  4. Princess says:

    and like i said, opinions are like buttholes…….
    it doesn’t matter what you or i think of what beck says about soccer………he has his opinion as well.
    it’s pretty evident that he’s not the only one in this country that has this opinion……..otherwise soccer would be here.
    it’s been tried………..and it FAILED miserably.

  5. hybridtalk1 says:

    I was not aware that you actually to Glenn Beck on the radio. Must be nice to have that available.

    Mr. Beck has (more or less) communicated the sentiment I have had about soccer for the last many years. I have learned that I am not alone in those viewa. Most of those I know feel the same way. It isn’t that we hate soccer but that the soccer world thinks there is something wrong with those of us who are not our rioting for our teams and being as obnoxious as we are possible. Oh, I have some family who like soccer and a coworker or two who also love the sport. We can talk about it and they can answer some questions like “why did they disqualify that goal?” or “If that player was the epitome of soccer, why was he disqualified for touching the ball with his hands twice?”

    Why do you feel that Glenn Beck, and everyone who has a different view than your’s about soccer deserves to be marginalized with infantile name calling? Is that your best argument for soccer? Can you see that you make his point with your second grade playground bully antics?

    Who really cares? It is just a game.

    • polarbear20 says:

      Why do you feel that Glenn Beck, and everyone who has a different view than your’s about soccer deserves to be marginalized with infantile name calling?

      Number one, I’m pissed at Beck because he’s continuing the typical what I call “DUMB JOCK” mentality that soccer is somehow a “pussy” sport. Bullshit. It’s not soccer where the players are almost wearing space suits during the game. Plus with the amount of running, kicking, etc in soccer, soccer players are hardly “wimpy”.

      Number two, I disagree with his “WE don’t like soccer” thing. FUCK YOU GLENN BECK!! I speak for myself. Just because he thinks he’s America’s voice, doesn’t mean he is. Not everyone hates soccer, just a few dumb ignorant jocks and right wing isolationist assholes. Considering that the network that broadcasts Monday Night Football is now almost exclusively covering soccer, people are out at sports bars watching it, people travel to see the games live; there’s a pretty damn good market for soccer in the United States. Also how quickly people in this area forget about the soccer game that was at the Browns stadium last month.

      Number three, it’s just more bullshit right wing “american exceptionalism’. In other words America does everything “except” what the rest of the world does. Always gotta be different, in the bad, wrong way. The rest of the world has universal health care, not us! The rest of the world likes soccer, not us(according to Beck). The rest of the world uses the Metric system, not us!! We’re a bunch of uninsured football fans using the most fucked up system of measurement in existence. God bless America!!! LMMFAO!!

    omgosh who really CARES what sports glen does or does not like?

    i don’t like golf. i HATE golf. suck on that.

  7. Princess says:

    me too katie. golf is nothing but chasing a ball with a stick LMAO

  8. therealgirlscout says:

    Football is nothing but an excuse for guys to knock each other over and do nothing until the last 5 minutes of the last Quarter.

  9. Hacksaw says:

    mzkatie – “omgosh who really CARES what sports glen does or does not like?

    i don’t like golf. i HATE golf. suck on that.”

    Princess – “me too katie. golf is nothing but chasing a ball with a stick LMAO”

    Agree with you both, I tried golf once in high school but I didn’t like it, although miniature golf is fun. I prefer sports in which you must outrun, outsmart or outmuscle your opponent. It amuses me how in golf, the spectators must remain totally silent, while the player hits a ball on a tee that is sitting perfectly still with a club that has a flat side designed to drive the small, rubberized ball – contrast that to baseball in which a player must gingerly stand in the batter’s box and try to mentally block out the shouts & taunts from the nearby crowd, so that he can attempt to hit a round ball with a round bat, when that ball could be travelling in triple digit miles per hour and can break his bones, or possibly even kill him if it strikes him in the head at the speed & force that any professional pitcher can generate behind that small, round & very hard “projectile”.

    As for soccer, what kind of sport is it when a players’ greatest fear is simply being shown a colored card, or when an entire country can be fucked over by some Finance inspector from Mali (Koman Coulibaly) who while acting as a referee, totally disregards at least 3 US players being held or otherwise fouled but disallows a USA goal that would’ve won the game, without ever offering so much as an explanation as to who on our team he was calling for a foul, or what this player supposedly did.

    If we get the 3 points for a victory vice the 1 for a tie, then we already qualify to advance the next round instead of needing to win our next game in order to do so. If Coulibaly had pulled this crap against a country that reveres soccer, then not only would he never be allowed to set foot on their soil again, he could actually be targeted for violence over it (it’s happened before) but if we beat Algeria this morning and advance, then all will be forgiven.

      And skateboarding owns all those sports. Go out and skate the streets, no balls, no crowds, no rules. 😀

    • mzkatie says:

      I tried golf in high school, too. Well, actually it was forced upon me in Gym class. It’s boring to watch & it’s boring to play.

      Unless it’s golf on the Wii. Then by all means, I approve.

      • polarbear20 says:

        I agree. Watching golf on TV has to be the most boring thing in the world. But in person, even though it’s a rich white man thing, I don’t have too many ‘ill feelings’ toward it. If I were playing by myself for fun, cool. But if it was a competition, not cool.

        Ehh, I’m just not a fan of ‘competitive sports’. Even though I did play football back in the day, zzzzzzz. Like I said before I don’t need to “outjock” others and run around hitting other people(as GS said). Even though I am better than some of the people who made up the “football team”, whatever. Like I said, skateboarding is better. 😀

    • polarbear20 says:

      Yeah, even better. A “mere hobby” beats any sport any day!! 😀

    It’s strange how just about every subject comes down to race in your mind, but in case you haven’t noticed, arguably the best golfer on the planet is a multi-racial, brown skinned man, just like our President who currently plays enough golf to qualify for the PGA Tour.

    In addition, athletes from just about all other sports like to “unwind” & “relax” on the golf course with friends & fellow players, and an awful lot of those players just happen to be Black…



    • polarbear20 says:

      Man, you’re really on with the whole “multimedia” thing today.

      Bing search: black guys playing golf. LMMFAO!!! 😀

      I’ll correct that then:

      Bing search: black athletes playing golf. 😀

      • Hacksaw says:

        Nice try, but these are not “random” Black guys playing golf, they are each star athletes from other professional team sports. They are, in order: NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, NFL Hall of Famer (and recently accused rapist) Lawrence Taylor, recently retired (earlier this month) and sure fire MLB Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr, MLB Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn & NFL running back (and future Hall of Famer) LaDainian Tomlinson.

  11. Princess says:

    ZING! hack………the skateboarding thing LMAO
    I personally don’t like “pro” football……….there’s too much money & corruption in it.
    But, all 4 of my sons played football every year since they were 6. (a total of 47 years combined)
    Now, THAT’S real athleticism, sport & competition.
    and it’s DAMMED hard work. PB, of course you wouldn’t know ANYTHING about that.
    you try to do “2 a days” in AUGUST………….or “calestentics” camp in JULY.
    you wouldn’t make it through an HOUR let alone a day.

    • polarbear20 says:

      hahahahahahaha!!! Let’s get you on a skateboard first, then see what you say. After you fell on your ASS!! LMMFAO!!

      It’s not as easy as it looks on TV!! 😉

  12. Princess says:

    who gives a shit about a skateboard PB? please! that’s stupid! i’ve seen some of the most UNatheletic skinny little GEEKS on those………big friggin DEAL?
    and i HAVE gotten on one……….remember i have SONS.
    yes, it’s a little testy at first to learn to stay ON the thing………..but even I mastered that quickly.
    but i had no DESIRE whatsoever to do “tricks” on it.
    and my ATHLETIC sons (who, btw competed on a state level & national level) messed with those stupid things only fleetingly………..and then they tossed them aside simply because it was BORING.

    • polarbear20 says:

      then they tossed them aside simply because it was BORING.

      Ehhh, I guess some people “get it”, some people don’t.

  13. therealgirlscout says:

    Really? We’re arguing about SKATEBOARDS???!!! No wonder our countries 2 parties can never get along…..

    • Hacksaw says:

      C’mon girlscout, most of the wars in recent history originally began over the divisive topics of soccer, golf & the villainous activity otherwise known as skateboarding! 😀

    • polarbear20 says:

      Normally I’m against war, but if it’s over the issue of skateboarding I’m ready to preemptively invade and occupy. 😀 Hell, even nukes would be justified!! 😉

  14. Princess says:

    now THAT was funny PB………………LOLOLOL
    and yes, girly, we are debating skateboards & how really STUPID they are.
    PB, when you grow up & become a REAL adult……………..oh never mind, that won’t ever happen LMAO

    • polarbear20 says:

      You just hate skateboards because rebellious young liberals like them!! LMMFAO

      Nope, I’m gonna keep skating. Even when I’m old. See, Girlscout is my role model for life in my 50s, not you. Sorry!!

  15. Princess says:

    you try to do “2 a days” in AUGUST………….or “calestentics” camp in JULY.
    you wouldn’t make it through an HOUR let alone a day.

    missed that didn’t you PB? do you even know what 2 a days are?
