Glenn Beck: I Have 15 Threats Against Me

Monday, 17 Jan 2011 03:07 PM

Glenn Beck has about 15 threats against his life being investigated at any one time, the popular TV and radio host told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.

In a wide-ranging discussion about the allegations of violent rhetoric that have been lobbed against conservatives in the wake of the Gabrielle Giffords assassination attempt in Tucson, Beck told O’Reilly he’s constantly dealing with threats because of his political views.

“The only thing that could be worse would be actual violence,” Beck said. “I don’t know about you, but I have about 15 operating threats on me at any one time.”

O’Reilly replied, “You have security and so do I.”

Beck also revealed that he has formulated a pledge against violence that so far has been agreed to by 17 members of Congress, though he did not know if they were all Republicans.

“Americans are fair and decent and they’re not looking for revenge or anything else,” Beck said, referring to the allegations against Sarah Palin and others. “They just wanted the record set straight. I think the record had been set straight but the damage had already been done.:

Here is Beck’s pledge:

“I denounce violence regardless of ideological motivation. I denounce anyone from the left right or middle who believe physical violence is the answer to whatever they feel is wrong with our country.”
