    Glenn Beck fans are fighting back against a campaign led by a black activist organization prompting major advertisers to withdraw from Beck's top-rated Fox News Channel program.

    Last week, NewsBusters reported President Obama's "green jobs czar," Van Jones, is co-founder of ColorofChange.org, an activist organization that has led a furious campaign against Beck culminating in major companies such as Geico and Lawyers.com pulling their spots from the Fox News star's daily show.

    In recent weeks, Beck has done several critical segments about Van Jones, who was appointed as the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

    Beck's segments were based in part on WND's reporting that Jones was as an admitted radical communist and black nationalist leader.

    Get Glenn Beck's "Common Sense" ... The case against an out-of-control government: Inspired by Thomas Paine

    Now a husband and wife team of Beck fans has launched a website – DefendGlenn.com – that lists the contact information for advertisers for Beck's and other Fox News programs and provides users with information and suggestions to contact those companies to urge their continued sponsorship. The site also asks users to contact Beck's current patrons to thank them for their loyalty to the Fox News star's program.

    I have read "Common Sense" by Glenn Beck, and have a lot of respect for his perspective on what is going on today in government in relation to the Constitution. He has both major parties pegged for what they really are. Because of the way he sheds light on Republicans in the book, I am not sure he is going to get a lot of help despite the fact this is a radical Obama sponsered group going after him.
