->Being the grandmaster of internet {{troll}}s he fully mastered the art of violent rhetoric and uses it to push his fanboys' buttons with practiced ease. He prefers to send his foot soldiers to fight the battle while he [[LetsYouAndHimFight hides in his website]], proving that he is a coward. His followers completely fail to realize how he also treats them as disposable men, making him a giant-ass {{hypocrite}} as well.

->One of these days in your travels, a guy is going to show you a brand-new deck of cards on which the seal is not yet broken. Then this guy is going to offer to bet you that he can make the Jack of Spades jump out of this brand-new deck of cards and squirt cider in your ear. But, son, do not accept this bet, because as sure as you stand there, you're going to wind up with an ear full of cider.

->In reality, his assurance that his victims are well after his faith healing is rather likely to lead his victims to abort the treatments and medication schemes they are already using, so it is definitely not an innocent matter of innocuous faith. {{Creator/CBC}} later exposed Hinnís tendency to use his churchís money for private purposes, and for [[{{Bouncer}} employing security guards disguised as men from the church]] to keep ''genuinely'' sick followers away from the stage so he doesnít need to deal with them (or risk being exposed to something that he cannot heal).

->The MMR vaccine is an immunization shot you probably got as a baby that is supposed to prevent the measles and other diseases. These days, quite a few parents refuse the shot, because they heard somewhere that the vaccine somehow causes autism. They may have heard it from [[Series/TheView Jenny McCarthy]] or some other actor, but the whole thing goes back to a shady scientist named Andrew Wakefield...For starters, ''Wakefield's own scientist'' couldn't duplicate Wakefield's results. Wakefield also manipulated his data to ensure that children who were sick before getting the vaccine were reported as only being sick ''after.'' He flat-out changed results he didn't like or that didn't completely agree with his hypothesis, all while performing needless, painful tests on children.\\\
So why would he do all that?\\\
Well, there's the patent for [[AllNaturalSnakeOil a new MMR vaccine]] that Wakefield filled out before he published his paper, and the money he accepted from a legal aid fund that was trying to sue vaccine manufacturers (it's almost as if he [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste had a massive financial stake in scaring people into believing that the MMR vaccine was dangerous]]).

->Goldline International, a company that sells investment gold at substantially higher than market value, is a major advertiser on Beck's radio and cable television programs. During his program, Beck also regularly encourages his listeners and viewers to buy gold. And while he doesn't advertise for Goldline directly during his scare tactic rants about [[YouMayPanicNow how the economy is going to collapse, and gold will be the only thing with value after the liberal apocalypse]], we are fortunate enough that once we're scared shitless, and desperate to buy gold, we get a convenient commercial by Glenn Beck himself, telling us that Goldline [[ViolinScam conveniently has gold for sale]]. He walks a thin tightrope of 'avoiding' a conflict of interest. In 2011 Goldline was indicted for theft by false pretenses, false advertising and conspiracy.
