Glenn Beck Blasts Conservative Critics as ‘Progressives on the Right’; Says Facebook Leans Left Because Conservatives Don’t Use Social Media

Last week, Beck and 16 other conservatives met with Zuckerberg at a damage control meeting the tech billionaire called following reports from several Facebook whistleblowers that the site’s news curators actively suppress conservative stories in their “trending” news section while simultaneously boosting the signal of leftwing causes like Black Lives Matter.

Beck’s subsequent defense of Facebook and panning of his fellow conservatives at the meeting led some on the right to label him Zuckerberg’s “useful idiot.”

Tucker Carlson, who also attended the meeting, described Beck’s behavior as “the most extended assiduous suck-up I think I’ve ever seen a grown man commit.”

Carlson told Politico that Beck “acted like he was auditioning to be Mark Zuckerberg’s manservant.”

Beck fired back at Carlson this morning, accusing him of wanting to force “quotas” on Facebook, which, according to Beck, makes him a “progressive.”

“What [Tucker Carlson] is saying about what he said at the meeting is not true,” Beck stated. “It was quotas that he was talking about — quotas. Three percent of the population is Mormon. That was his quote — three percent. So I’m not saying that we go there that far, but shouldn’t it be representative of how many conservatives there are? Shouldn’t you hire that way? That’s a quota. Quotas don’t work. Quotas don’t work. And the only ones that believe that are progressives on the right and progressives on the left. And they’ve already exposed themselves. Progressives are who progressives are and they always will be.”

Carlson, however, claims that he was simply suggesting that Facebook hire news curators with a broader “diversity of views” in order to avoid the sort of leftwing bias they’ve been accused of. His suggestion is in keeping with decades of conservative media criticism and activism from respected organizations like Brent Bozell’s Media Research Center and Breitbart’s own Big Journalism.

Beck also argued that Facebook has a leftwing bias simply because it is “by design a social platform,” and he believes people on the left use social media more than conservatives.

Lunatic Slams Maniac for Hanging Out With Madman


Ted Cruz Holds Campaign Rally With Glenn Beck In Oklahoma City

Glenn Beck’s The Blaze has the exclusive story of how its own founder no longer thinks Matt Drudge is a cool guy, possibly because Matt Drudge has been spending too much time around Alex Jones. The Drudge-Jones alliance, Beck said, may explain negative coverage of Marco Rubio on The Drudge Report.

Glenn Beck—who used to cry on the air all the time and is weirdly obsessed with blue jeans and thinks Obama is somehow to blame for the Ebola outbreak—is mad about Matt Drudge—who thought Leonardo DiCaprio got raped by a bear in The Revenant and regularly advances conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton hiding nonexistent health problems—hanging out with Alex Jones—who is extremely scared about Jade Helm and tried to incite a riot over Y2k and sells bogus “neural activation” pills on his website.

Glenn Beck’s Trump Riff: ‘The Stabbing Just Wouldn’t Stop’ [AUDIO]


Beck began the segment by stating his amazement at how conservatives across the country aren’t up in arms over Trump’s debate behavior.

“I don’t know what I would have done if I was sitting in” Cruz or Rubio’s shoes, Beck stated. “I can’t say it that way. If I were on the stage, I would have said, ‘have you been listening to him tonight? Have you been listening to what I say about him? I believe these things.’”
