|Glenn Beck on the bench at SiriusXM.|
The Patriot may be short one agitator. The SiriusXM Satellite service iced Glenn Beck for putting on a guest who threatened Republican presumptive nominee Donald J. Trump.
SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.
Brad Thor was on the show last week. Thor likened the GOP's presumptive nominee Donald Trump to a South American-style dictator who would cause an "extinction-level event" for the country if elected. Thor then declared that in such a case, Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by "legal means" through impeachment, so Thor asked "what patriot will step up and do that" if Trump oversteps his Constitutional restraints. Beck agreed with Thor's assessment.
Beck isn't a fan of Trump and he's openly vocal about other agitators in the media supporting him.
The feud between Beck and Softball Hannity is back. Hannity was on radio yesterday blasting the potential third party candidate who may steal votes from Trump. He singled out Glenn Beck, Erick Erickson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and Bill Kristol for attempting to sabotage Trump.
SiriusXM announced that David Webb, the Black conservative agitator will fill the void for the time being. iHeartMedia is negotiating contracts with Glenn Beck, Softball Hannity and that old fart Rush Limbaugh.
Beck, Hannity and Limbaugh will likely face a pay cut. iHeartMedia is cautious about them. Limbaugh's attack on Sandra Fluke seriously damaged AM agitators across the board. Liberal and conservative agitators are toxic and businesses don't want to have their brands associated around them.
