GLENN BECK: If Tea Party Votes For Gingrich It's Because Obama's Black
Business Insider ^ | December 12, 2011 | Glynnis MacNicol

Posted on 12/12/2011 2:41:42 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

No one can ever accuse Glenn Beck of toeing the line.

Over the weekend Beck followed up last week's headline-making interview with Newt Gingrich with an appearance on Judge Andrew Napolitano's Fox Business show.

Beck, who is no fan of what he terms Gingrich's "progressive" politics, declared that Gingrich is the "only candidate I cannot vote for" before taking a rather brutal (if totally true to form)swipe a Tea Party supporters.

If you have a big government progressive, or a big government progressive in Obama… ask yourself this, Tea Party: Is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy, it must be about race. I mean, what else is it? It’s the policies that matter....

We really don’t know what Mr. Obama is. Indications are that he is about 44% Arab, 6% black and 50% white. That’s based on the configuration of his father’s tribe in Kenya.

I have no problems with the Arab/black blood. It's the 50% white commie lib blood that makes him dangerous.

“If I vote for Gingrich, it will be because he has fewer Communist friends and associates than Obama does.”
“I would have preferred Herman Cain.”

I would have preffered Sarah Palin.
Or Justin Beiber.
Or Jesus Christ.

But, they have all chosen NOT to run, and I am stuck with earthly choices, ALL of which are a far better prospect than 4 more years of EMPEROR OBAMA, THE GREAT DESTROYER OF JOBS.

You really got that down good...cut and paste, or teleprompter? Keep repeating it, some dimwits will believe you, then we might get FOUR MORE YEARS! YEAH!

Because we got no one else to beat Obama and you know it.

In this country, that's defined as 'black'. Always has been, and still is, to this day.

I've got more Caucasian blood than Obama does, but it still says 'negro' on my birth certificate.

FOX had the right idea, Beck was going completely batty over the Islamic Caliphate conspiracy/theory on his show.

It was not long after that, they pulled the plug on his vibrator.

I don’t think Beck has delusions of becoming POTUS, but I do think that he thinks he (Beck) is the fulfillment of the White Horse prophecy in Mormondom. Originally given when Joseph Smith was running for POTUS, it has always been assumed that it referred to a Mormon president, however, with the rise of talk show hosts like Beck, I can easily see Beck seeing himself as the ‘elder of Zion’ who will save the US when the Constitution is ‘hanging by a thread’.

Either way, Beck has delusions of grandeur. And I love your tagline.

Hey Beck...this is funny. At the end of the debate when they were asked of whom they admired on the stage, Santorum said Gingrich because he used to listen to Newts tapes on conservatism.

Can anyone tell me WTH? Since Beck swooned over Santorum, does that make Santorum an enemy in Becks eyes?

Obama’s problem ain’t the color of his skin. (Cain’s short but stellar run proved that.) It’s the color of his politics. Black skin? Pfah, means nothing.

Isn't it interesting that Beck, a highly paid commentator on the American experience and politics, doesn't grasp that glaring simplicity?

Beck wants the White Horse Prophesy to come true and Gingrich is taking that away from him.

Beck knows that the money will soon dry up for all candidates except for Gingrich, Romney and maybe Paul. Beck’s true dream Mormon is Huntsman, who is stuck at 2%.

Beck is cracking up...

There no longer is any reason to watch or listen to him.

I wrote a piece critical of Beck in American Thinker back in winter of 2010 (one Mark Levin and Rush loved BTW) which was right on the money about Beck’s intellectual inconsistencies and his dangerous third party leanings.

I was lit up and flamed around here and on a lot of other websites. My my my - how times they are a changin.....

The idea that Obama and Newt Gingrich are identical twins politically so that voters will vote between them only on race is outrageous.

Nothing to do with Supreme Court appointments, Newt promise to repeal Obamacare, Total opposites on Israel, etc.

Even if a RINO runs it doesn’t mean a person voting republican has to be a racist for God’s sake!

I think we are witnessing the same thing we saw when Algore lost the presidency...a breakdown.

Glenn Beck is - in a word - a nut.

This is why his show is now on a website, and no longer at FOX news.

I quit watching him a long time ago for these nutty remarks he makes will trying to pretend to be a conservative.

He's got a good gimmick with the chalkboard and all that, but he never lets his own facts sway his opinion.

Beck has a right to vote third party, but it’s unforgiveable to say Gingrich is identical to Obama and then to call Tea Partiers racist.

Beck has gone so far around the block he has become a leftist.

Ive been unable to listen to the Pat Grey Show for a while now. Glenn always said when he implored it would be in spectacular fashion. I just feel sorry for all the people who have continued to financially support him out of loyalty without realizing he's been headed for an obvious train wreck for 18 months or so.

IMO, Beck has never been intellectually consistent. We all saw his Fox TV shows where he would have 55 minutes of wonderful exposes on the communists and marxists in the Obama White House - and then he’d spend the last 5 minutes insisting that “but it isn’t a Republican or a Democrat thing” or “it isn’t a left or a right thing.”

And I’m thinking: Damn Glenn, it sure the fk is an R or D thing or a L or R thing. What are you thinking?

Why I never liked him too much. But then again, many many Freepers would FLAME ME for saying so a year ago.

Yes, breakdown, definitely.

Gingrich did a interview with Beck recently and Gingrich bested him.

This is the thanks he gets....pitiful and laughable really.

Beck has lost it.

Gingirch is Israel’s best ally. More than Beck!

Think SCOTUS appointments, also.

Beck needs to talk to God. Ask Him for guidance and forgiveness.

Immediately.

Beck does have the right to support third party.

And I have the right to say that it contradicts 90% of what he claims to stand for and want - because of the inevitable consequences related to it.

So yes, he has the right to be totally intellectually inconsistent and incoherent. And we have the right to notice it.

I didn’t trust him the moment I saw him. Hubby liked him and wanted to watch back in the earlier days but I just couldn’t stand him and did not trust a thing he said, but I had no idea why. Then I found out what it was about him that bugged me, he acted like a typical Mormon pesthood (priesthood) holder.

And I’ve been flamed more than once on here for not liking Beck and very seriously flamed when he made that stupid Dead Sea Scrolls/Council of Nicaea comment last year.

I feel your pain. BTW, you might find this interesting. It is from Feb 22 of last year - and you’ll see I was fairly complimentary but did point out Glenn’s intellectual inconsistencies. I was nicer than I wanted to be (editor’s demand).

Methinks I nailed it. I was flamed here, at American Thinker, at Lucianne and all over the Beck kool aid sites. Levin thought it was brilliant;

Just to apply a little logic to Beck’s statement.

First it’s crazy to say Obama and Gingrich are indistinguishable politically, there being so many differences of party, policy, appointments, etc.

BUT even if it could be true, WHY would tea partiers have any obligation to vote for Obama???? They are not allowed to prefer Gingrich, or republicans, or older presidents, or one with different experience??

Anyone who votes for Newt Gingrich becomes a racist by virtue of Glenn Beck’s special sauce?
