  • It's about the same as saying that the terrorists at resort Guantanamo where being tortured. I guess it goes both ways, don't it?
  • Yes, people believed him. Some even refused to believe when more responsible Fox News commentators debunked his wild story.
  • Glenn Beck another one for the gas chamber of justice! This BS hate speech has got to stop on our public airwaves. Too many idiots sucking this shit in like it's real news. Law suits should start flying gagging all these retards that spread unsupported stories.
  • freedom of speech, freedom of the press... these things are guaranteed even if you disagree with the opinions.
  • I believe there are such camps!
  • there are such camps...just not labeled asn concentration camps..do u think Beck stupid ? and that he thinks we are all 'stupid' enough that we would never check it out....it merits 'worth checking out,profundly, FEMA' , not Beck.... should the media be able...???? its done everyday ,day in and day out...some have proof and some don't ....oh, would u like 'freedom of speech' to be only of those u believe or give substantial proof to your beliefs?? check it out and then complain ,when u have proof , its an unproven claim...geez..
  • There are fema camps, they arnt considered concentration camps cuz they were build in the name of "WAR ON DRUGS" nobody inhabits them, yet they are gaurded 24/7. They say some of the camps are their incase of emergency...and to detain people...Well, I dont know any reason why they need a bunch of coffins...MILLIONS of freakin coffins...everywhere. There is proof, theres footage of them. Their claims were "In case of a biohazard emergency and a massive death rate, we have prepared." But the thing is, why dont they invest in gas masks...or body protection, not expect the worst...and just give us coffins.
  • Sure they said Bush was a Baby killer but he was against abortion and say Obama is for saving Babies but is okk with live birth abortions..... Lying is what they do best the camps are a bit odd having razer wire to keep people in rather than out. Explain that away.
  • From Fox to CNN to pretty much any major media outlet, youre going to get what theyre selling, not the 'news'. Has Glenn Beck committed some media sacrilege? aint nothing in this question that doest have a precedent. In fact, this is a pillar of modern journalism. Sensationalism, agenda and power have all infected mondern journalism to the point of compromising its heart.
  • I did not and still don't. It's a free press. And most free stuff isn't worth the price you pay for it.
  • Probably millions of people believed him. I think that we're headed in a direction in which the news is not clearly distinguished from entertainment. We've gotta do that. And, we have to go back to the day in which the press, that 4th institution, is clearly separated from business interests of publishers / owners / advertisers.
  • Actually he know he knew how silly he was so he debunked the theory. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vecUYYHUzP0
  • No I don't believe it. Why shouldn't he claim what he wants? Haven't you been listening to Keith, Rachel, Wolff, Ed, Kokie, Bryan, Matt, et.al. conducting the Obama worship? Oh gollie gee it's Friday I wonder where they'll be going tonight. Friday is their date night isn't it?
  • I don't believe in these camps as described and I also don't believe in Area 51. . As it happens, there actually IS an Area 51. But the only thing anyone knows about it is that it's military and you can't go in there. . Amy Goodman, no Fox news analyst she, did a story on how she wasn't allowed to interview people in the Louisiana FEMA camps and made great hay over the unfairness of it all. . Fenced-in government areas are a fact of life and have been pretty much since the War of Independence. . Big government stockpiles of coffins is just plain good sense. We have soldiers currently dying and aged veterans dying. After hurricane Katrina hit (and after the news media reported whatever wild rumors came their way) FEMA was expecting to have to deal with a LOT of dead bodies. . To answer the specific question, everyone should be able to make whatever claims they think are right subject to libel or slander laws. . With commentators extreme claims are not unusual. Actual news people, those that are reporting stories ought to be more circumspect but they are frankly not as good as their predecessors. Journalism is a corrupt institution. . It would be nice if there was an unbiased news organization out there but I'm not holding my breath.
  • its fox news, more need be said? and freedom of speech cuts both ways
  • People also claimed that Bush was building concentration camps, along with special railroad cars for the transportation of large numbers of people.
  • Yes they really are... These camps fall directly in line with Army Regulation 210–35 otherwise known as the Civilian Inmate Labor Program (Civilian Inmate Prison Camps) which was first setup in early 2005.
  • I don't know about Obama's, More like Bush's. FEMA but Google Gunderson Steel. Weird. P.S another brain dead junkie with a TV show.
  • NO! and NOOO!
  • I read, during Bush's term that Haliburton built some concentration camps in Montana or somewhere. If they're there, it wasn't Obama that built them. How is it that he is now responsible for the disaster Bush left? His responsibility is to fix things, not make excuses for the problems
  • when will people learn that Fox news and toilet paper can be used for the same thing and thats to wipe your arse with!!, any thing that is associated with Murdock is just pap and dribble first class
  • I believe the story to a point. You do have to question why they are being built. I don't think anyone has given a strong reason. And Glenn Beck does have evidence to back it up. It's flimsy and circumstantial, but it is evidence. It's more evidence than Dan Rather had about the faked Bush National Guard docs.
  • I don't know who gave the orders to build'em but where did these come from? http://tinyurl.com/negqw3
  • Glenn Beck is not a journalist. Presently he is a Commentator or Pundit. Previously he was a comedian. But he wasn't funny then either.
  • He made no such claim. Do some more research. It's a big lie, like most liberal claims.
  • Beck is too much Alex Jones/Conspiracy Theory for me to believe.
  • These claims have been around for years and years and yet not one single episode of people being dragged off to a single camp has been reported. Does something just not wash there?
  • Waterboarding is of course on the continuum of torture, but it's a fair piece down from what the Japanese did in WWII. We use it only in the rarest circumstances with medical personnel on hand to prevent death as noted. . If I seem hesitant to come out and say 'it's torture' it is for much the same reason pro-abortion people are reluctant to say 'it's murder'. Any argument is then considered 'settled'. . My position is that our use of waterboarding thus far IS legitimate and legal. . Skidoo, your comment about considering views that don't support my own is unworthy of you. You have not changed your view in this exchange either. Does that mean you don't consider views contrary to yours? Does Bush even do that? Just because I disagree with a view does not mean I have not considered it.
  • If you look at Fox New's viewers, you would realize why people believe those looneys. Unfortunately, unless we start committing genocide on the ignorant and uneducated, Fox News will stay in business.
  • I didn't know this, but I do not listen to Beck because he practices hateful and inflammatory speech. I wouldn't say that commentators should be forbidden to say things like this, because it's free speech. It's the public's responsibility to educate themselves and to do research if they hear outlandish stories like this one. If they are duped, then it is their fault for being so gullible.
  • I think that the system in the UK is quite a good one. Newsreaders are not permitted to express personal opinions, and are obliged to be even handed. In order to give expression to different points of view, they interview other people who express these viewpoints.
  • People like him (and some of the users on here) are making all Republicans look like lunatics. Sane Republicans should do everything they can to shut people like them up (or to at least distance themselves from them) or else their party will continue to be seen as a joke for a long time to come.
  • just more scare tactics from the right. they saw how well those tactics worked under the bush administration so they keep using them. problem for them is, more americans are getting wise to that tactic. there ought to be some sort of punishment or fines levied on news organizations or newscasters for knowingly spreading lies, untruths, half truhs and misinformation.
  • I'm sure some did, but merely because they had already decided that they didn't like Obama. These people also believe stuff like "Obama's a Muslim", or "Obama's not a citizen", but they have trouble believing in things like photosynthesis, evolution, global warming, or the fact that the Earth is round. After some thought, I am beginning to believe that maybe FEMA camps are a good place to store these lunatics! It could be a self-fulfilling prophecy! Just sayin'...
  • It sounds to me that he was speaking metaphorically but even so a good argument can be made in his defense. FEMA builds the public housing for the people, usually of color, to live in free of charge in a concentrated area. Sounds to me like that could easily be labeled as a concentration camp.
  • Google Gunderson Steel...food for thought.
