Foul Bob Beckel sneers at ‘myth’ of the Greatest Generation on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ [video]

Yes, he did.

Not content with being a cretinous misogynist who trivialized date rape and suggested that campus rapes are mythical, Bob Beckel again took to television to expose his foulness. This time, by typical liberal disparaging of America’s Greatest Generation.

Contemptible, Beckel. As usual. And once again he was saved by a host, who cut him off before he could really get going. Stop doing that. Let him fully expose himself, again and again.

How many times will Beckel be allowed to spew garbage? When will enough be enough? Evidently, the following isn’t enough:


But keep smearing the Greatest Generation, Bob, while you sit on your duff and continue to spew your hateful bile.

What’s next in Beckel’s cretinous repertoire? Stay tuned, sadly.

  • CarlaJD

    Wish Beckel would be fired & tossed into the Street by FOX.he is a crude, rude and J-A.

  • GTFOBigGovt

    While the GREATEST generation survived the depression, the dust bowl, several wars and died for their country etc etc this jack a** squandered his life with dope and booze for decades.

    He’s a classic Liberal pig who most likely has NO CLUE what his parents or anybody else went through to give him this life he disrespected so much, and most CERTAINLY has a long list of “injustices” he feels HE’S suffered.

    • FranklinWasRight

      I agree, but they also raised my parents generation, the boomers, who I blame for most of the societal ills we are currently experiencing. So, while I appreciate their sacrifice, I wish the Greatest Generation had done a better job raising non-jack asses.

      • Stupid Republic

        Robert Beckel being the poster child for such nasty children.

      • Jim Denney

        does this pretty much cover it?

      • 1SkepticalChick

        Disabled Boomer here, I agree with you, and it’s embarassing.

      • beebop1952

        Sorry to interject here but they are not responsible for the RESULTS. They were well intentioned.

      • walterc

        As with all parents, they wanted to make life easier for their children than it was for them. Problem is, they raised a bunch of spoiled self centered brats. As they say, hindsight is 20/20.

        • FranklinWasRight

          Yes, people need to be aware of what kind of society and culture they are leaving to their children and grandchildren. My children will sadly have to live in a world that is less free than the one their grandparents inherited, all because their grandparents (boomers) didn’t bother to appreciate the legacy they were given or to preserve it. I just wish the greatest generation had done a better job passing down the legacy they preserved, what is the point of their sacrifice if what they were able to preserve couldn’t last more than one more generation?

      • $27789750

        Yes, I sometimes wonder how my now middle aged children turned out such paradoxes. As tail end, Korean War, boomers they are a mix of caring, good,responsible people who are all wrapped up tightly in the certainty of the rightness of their points of view. An odd mix of altruism and ‘me’ all stirred together like Beckel if you wil. One thing for sure, they never fail to surprise me. They, in turn, have raised a generation(yours) of decent young people without clear boundaries or a genuine sense of self…a kind of anything goes approach to life but that approach shifts like quicksilver and just as quickly. I wonder what my parents would have said about my Depression baby childhood and results. (chuckles wryly)

        • FranklinWasRight

          Moral relativism, I was fully indoctrinated in it thanks to my schooling and the way it pervades in “youth culture.” You have that to thank for the “anything goes approach” to life. When right and wrong is completely relative, and there is no absolute truth, nihilism sets in pretty quickly. When you can’t really know anything, if there is no truth, what’s the point of critical thinking?

          Thank God I grew up when I had children of my own and was able to see through the glossy veneer and notice the rot that is at the core of our culture. I turned to religion, most people my age are simply too narcissistic to turn to religion. They don’t want a savior, they don’t need to be saved, sin doesn’t really exist after all.

          And why should we? My mother practices cafeteria Catholocism, she takes what she likes and leaves the rest. We didn’t even bother to go to church most of the time. Again, moral relatavism on display. The boomers passed it on to their children quite well.

          As a former teacher, I also blame the public school system and the parents who didn’t bother paying attention to what was going on inside the schools (including my own). Many people who have gone to public schools the last 50 years are ignorant of history and usually lacking in the critical thinking skills dept. I lucked out, I had a wonderful history/government teacher at my private high school who helped undo some of the damage done at my public elementary school. Without the solid knowledge of history and the consitution he gave me, I wouldn’t have been able to see Obama for what he is, and emperor with no clothes, and I would have voted for him just like all of my friends and family did.

          I don’t want to blame my grandparents for any of this, but they certainly didn’t do anything about it (at least not that I can see). My kids go to private school, I’m making sure they know their history and the law so they will at least be able to realize when their rights are being violated.

          • $27789750

            Interesting point of view. I will certainly think about it.

      • $27789750

        Yes, I sometimes wonder how my now middle aged children turned out such paradoxes.

    • grais

      He’s proud of his doped and boozed life…never passes up a chance to make light of it, trying to impress his younger co-hosts. The guy’s a freak. Rarely makes eye contact with the people he’s talking to; always looking into the camera instead…creepy. Like someone said below, he wouldn’t make a pimple on the ass of any member of his parents’ generation. And he knows it.

    • Scott Carroll

      I can’t believe I’m saying this but I agree with Beckel. Calling the WWII generation “The Greatest” is a little obsequious and asinine. First of all, it’s an
      invented term by Tom Brokaw, not exactly a shining beacon of intellectualism. Second of all, I defy anyone to tell me it was a greater generation than Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, and Adams.

      I don’t even think they’re the greatest generation of the 20th century. That distinction belongs to the WWI generation. They experienced the horrors of trench warfare and then had to raise families and children in hopeless poverty during the Great Depression. Now, of course, the WWII generation suffered through the Great Depression as well, but I would much rather live through that as a child, secure in the knowledge that my parents were there to provide for me than to live through it as a father and a husband. Being forced to look into the eyes of your starving family would be traumatizing.

      Oh and I almost forgot the blackest mark against them. The “Greatest Generation” sired the worst. Standing in a soup line and defeating worldwide
      totalitarianism doesn’t get you off the hook if you’re also responsible for
      Crosby, Stills, and Nash.

      • beebop1952

        Crosy Stills and Nash are MUSICIANS. If you look to them, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen (whose music I mostly hate) as anything other than musicians, the problem is in your thinking. Don’t get my talking points from delusional self proclaimed “celebrities.”

  • ChHarrison

    It’s time for a boycott of The Five’s sponsor until Beckel is fired.

    • trixiewoobeans

      “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer”. Let him stay, He’s a walking, talking object lesson in Liberalism and why it’s so ugly and destructive. Anybody leaning toward a Liberal viewpoint will be instantly repelled by his opinions and beliefs. It’s almost a twisted public service!

    • Jillane Kent

      I’ve boycotted them since the day I cancelled cable. Beck’s network doesn’t have to resort to such attention grabbing antics to garner viewers.

    • beebop1952

      Until there is program on a competing network where 4/5’s of the content is fact based, I will stick with The Five.

  • stillinthe60s

    I’m in the camp that wants Lib lunatics like Beckel front and center on t.v. so America gets an unvarnished look at real lib-think. Beckel won’t have to worry about his job until Biden is available anyway.

    • MJ Pauls

      Problem is, too many people blindly swallow what the talking heads spout off as truth. You could tell them North is South and most of them would believe it.

    • Garth Haycock

      I tend to agree with your thought here. I want Fox News to keep him on the air for two reasons:

      1. Allowing him to make his position is a 1st Amendment right

      2. So folks can see for themselves the difference between conservatives and progressives.

  • Love of Country

    So it begs the question ….. which generation does Beckel think is the greatest. Let me guess …. he thinks it’s this one, lol.

    • alostjunkie

      it makes you want to laugh and cry. The current generation needs signs and labels to indicate the obvious like “contain nuts” for a bag of nuts.

      • beebop1952

        The current generation has no tolerance for adversity. Everyone is a “winner,” everyone “needs
        a smart phone and a 60” television with cable. Every school child needs three squares delivered at government expense. The scewed values are creating a generation of fat, self obcessed me-me-mers personified by the ego maniac in the WH. I remember a “study” that showed that humans would eventually lose their lower jaw. Perhaps BB’s usefulness is developing the jaws of future bipedals.

  • Pat Loudoun

    FranklinWasRight is right. They may have been the Greatest Generation, but they were the worst parents in American history.

    Honestly, I think they were just too exhausted by their own lives to do the right thing for their children. So it’s impossible to blame them. It’s the ebb and tide of History.

    Oh, and Stupid Republic is also right.

    • Scott Carroll

      I have my own pet theory about that. I believe they were so traumatized by the hardships they endured throughout the Great Depression and the war that they overcompensated with their children and attempted to spare them any pain whatsoever. Thus constructing a generational time bomb of narcissism and self-entitlement.

  • ozconservative

    Here are some reasons why the generation that fought WW2 are the Greatest Generation:

    1: Winston Churchills “Finest Hour” speech

    2.From “Kokoda” an Oscar winning documentary filmed by Damien Parer who some say was the finest war correspondant of WW2.

    3. William Wylers “Memphis Belle”

    4. Finally a scene from “Band of Brothers – Why We Fight”
    The Greatest Generation is exactly that because they fought to eliminate unspeakable evil from the world. That’s something this ignorant slob can’t or won’t understand.

    • Scott Carroll

      Winston Churchill was in his 60’s when he gave that speech. He was not part of that generation.

      Do you honestly think the WWII generation was “greater” than the generation of Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and Madison that possessed the political brilliance to craft our founding documents and the military brilliance to win our independence from the world’s mightiest empire? Or what about the Civil War generation that took up arms against their fellow countrymen to keep the country intact and to eradicate slavery?

      Both my grandfathers fought in WWII and I’m immeasurably proud of that fact. I’m not trying to denigrate that generation but let’s keep in mind they also elected Roosevelt 4 times and raised the baby boomers.

      • ozconservative

        Churchill wasn’t speaking of himself he was speaking of the young men of RAF Fighter Command who would eventually win the Battle of Britain.
        Secondly for me as an Australian, the WW2 generation is the greatest generation. The men you mention, are undoubtedly great men and as a conservative I continue to be inspired by them.
        But when it comes to a choice between them and the guys that saved my country from being occupied by the Japanese, well you can guess which ones I’m gonna go for.

  • Maxx

    Disparaging men from fighter pilot George W. Bush’s era? As a veteran, let me just keep it short.

    Bob Beckel, you wouldn’t make a pimple on ’41’s ass.

  • CatHerder

    Park his lard @$$ in a room for ten minutes with the ones who yet remain of that generation and you’d hear the screams for miles. Dad left us 13 years ago but as a Seaman 2nd he had his back broken when the fleet oiler he was serving on got torpedoed. My father in law got his knee shot out on New Guinea. HIS brother took one through the lung in Italy. One of my uncles lived the rest of his life with a metal plate in his skull where an enemy HMG near took his head off. They all survived to raise families and help build the country we are tearing down now. So, to this a*hole I say STFU or you are going to by God find out I’m not nearly as old as the calendar says. I am NOT playing here!

    • ozconservative

      Your father-in-law walked the same muddy hellholes in New Guinea as my great-uncle did with the Australian Army. He got malaria and had problems with it for the rest of his life.

  • NixTyranny

    Confession: Not an O’Reilly fan. BUT, he kicked Beckel’s you-know-what in the debate over how more liberal laws have made Disability into a form of welfare and not just for the ones who are truly considered disabled like I am (terminal pulmonary disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and two lung transplants).

  • Jack Deth

    Someone should stick a catheter in Bob Beckel and start siphoning off his whale blubber and Ambergris. Rendered down, it could heat the high rises of Manhattan for a month.

    Or create an entire line of perfumes called “Dhimmitude” or “Cranial/Rectal Insertion”.

  • John (it true me am)

    I have to admit, I’ve never cared for the “greatest generation” label. Not to say I feel anywhere near as derisive about it as Beckel does by any means, but I’ve always felt it was a bit of a romanticism because of the Nazi issue. We like to picture our (sometimes now great) grandparents as Captain America like figures, showing up to save the day in Europe and the Pacific and stopping the spread of power of wholely evil men. Yet while defeating the Axis menace was certainly integral to the world’s very survival, we shouldn’t pretend it happened in a void… this was also a generation that was heavily involved in bringing about(and continuing of) the progressive policies that we suffer under this day.

    And while they were certainly a step above their parents(the Woodrow Wilsons and eugenics lovers before the nazis drove it out of style) and their children(need I even explain this one?), can we rightfully claim them as the greatest? Though to be fair, not exactly much competition for the title I suppose. My own generation is certainly a loser and it can be hard to seperate issues like slavery from earlier generations.

    • Scott Carroll


  • vcferlita

    Did you have to use the phrase “expose” himself? Ewwww…

  • DefCon99

    It’s called the Greatest Generation because some liberal news guy, Brokaw, named a book about them. Look at the legacy and then decide.

    • Jillane Kent

      Digging out of the Depression through tenacity and endeavor, as opposed to
      “Occupying” Wall Street isn’t impressive? Ending World War 2 isn’t impressive? Building the nation’s highways isn’t impressive? Putting a man on the moon wasn’t impressive?

      • SineWaveII

        No doubt, but they also did a lot of harm as well.
        They laid the foundation for the whole big mess we have today. And James is right. They never called themselves “the greatest generation” Tom Brokaw put that label on them.
        Think about it, are they really greater than the generation that fought for independence, founded our country and wrote the constitution? Are they really greater than the generation that fought the civil war and ended slavery?

  • DeadBuffalo Blog

    He may have a point. They did spawn the likes of him (and the Clintons, hippies and the hippies that spawned Obama).

  • David

    I use to enjoy watching The Five at 5PM. I watched it from the first show, despite disgusting Bob Beckel. In December, I could watch it no longer. In January, I stopped watching Fox News completely. There are other alternatives to Bob Beckel for a liberal viewpoint. He is foul, disgusting and profane. Those are his good qualities.

  • Brett McMicken

    what should one expect from a tub of rancid lard?

  • Ben Bollman

    You would think after the past couple of days Beckel would have learned to keep his particularly stupid opinion to himself, apparently not.

  • varifrank

    How considerate of “Big Brave Bob” to hold his judgement on the Greatest Generation until after most of them have died off.

  • $22639970

    Bob Beckel is living proof that Democrats screw monkeys.

  • trixiewoobeans

    He’s as dumb as a shoe. I’ve wondered why they have him on The Five. Is he comic relief or the appalling representation of this country’s Libiots? As one woman said, “Beckel’s a Schmeckle!”

  • Donna W

    Bob, limit yourself to just a couple of pork roasts a day – you’ll feel much better.

  • RightThinking1

    Next up, MSM declaring: “FOX News host insults the Greatest Generation”

  • Guest

    The funny thing – this IS our president! These are Obama’s thoughts that conservatives know, but he can’t admit. He hates America. He hates Israel, he hates the idea of women having protection for themselves. He hates independent thought. I am starting to change the subject, but you all get my point. Bob Beckel and liberals are ALL the same..

  • kim

    start boycotting Fox and Bob will be at MSNBC

    • beebop1952

      Bob Beckel is a classic liberal. He is a union thug in suspenders. Give him all the air time you want. He is the most disgusting example of lib speak I can think of,

  • gracepmc

    It’s not so much whether it was the greatest generation or not. But people like my father, a legal immigrant and new American and so many others like him, fought man to man, eye to eye, (not from the joystick controlling the drone), dogfight to dogfight, came home and tried to do the right thing — for what? So that people like Bob Beckel can become part of the peace corps generation, drinking their way through the political morass , somehow surviving and living yet another day to besmirch and demean hardworking men and women who fight for this country. Someone should give Beckel a ride in a PT boat and let him fight his way to shore in Normandy with a full pack. And yeah Bob your reward will be some female toy that you can abuse and demean.

  • Shawn

    Jeez Beckel, you must be in it for the shock value anymore..find anymore prostitutes to confer with?

  • beebop1952

    Bob’s a perfect example of a progressive. He claims to be “for women” and calls them “broads,” denies they are assualted and then apologizes if you are “offended.” He claims to be “for gays” and then uses expressions like “tea bagger.” He claims to be “for education” and then would deny an inner city family access to the same quality education via vouchers that the wealthy can afford because union member teachers are in fact more valuable than children because, hey, kids don’t vote. The real danger to free thought, speech, and a future generation are the Bob Beckels of this world.

  • Ha Keem

    lol, this is a perfect example of why republicans are losers, they are still living in the past.

  • cscape

    Bob Beckel and Jabba the Hut….. Separated at Birth!

  • notenoughtime

    Is Beckel off the wagon? He has certainly been making assinine comments lately or is he finally become just another liberal who would like to distort the facts to justify their lack of pride in the history of this country. If I am not mistaken, his parents are part of the greatest generation! Moron!

  • BlueStateRepub

    The MFM will blame it all on Faux Newz and “forget” to mention that Big Boy Bob is a Liberal. Count it!

    Love bobby he is the Charles Barkley of politics …..which is why he gets away with stuff ….he speaks his mind but doesn’t get all hateful and butt hurt when you make fun of him… he takes it in stride and jokes about himself as well as the haters do ..

  • ssj429

  • salvagesalvage

    Oh wow Fox, really? You need to make liberals look bad so they get this guy to play the part with all the acting skill of a WWF wrassler?

    I know their ratings took a hit after the election but damn, this is sad.

    But great news for wingnuts! Now when this guy says something stupid / awful you can howl about how all liberals are saying these things!

    Bet I can scroll down a bit and find…

    Robert Beckel being the poster child for such nasty children.

    There you go!

  • Rich Davie

    Bob Beckel is as insignificant as a pimple on a cow’s ass… The Five would be so much better as The 4.
