Skip to comments.Beck: The Hemorrhoid is bursting on radio (Vanity)
Posted on 01/23/2012 7:01:53 AM PST by AdamBomb
I was just listening to Beck on air this morning. He is sarcastically thanking South Carolina for giving us a candidate who has "no way in hell of winning against Obama."
The Hemorrhoid is about to burst.
Look for more Republicans to have nervous breakdowns today.
Isn’t Beck pushing Ron Paul?
Apparently he didn't hear the news over the weekend that Romney lost.
Will Beck cry on air? Enquiring minds want to know.
What happened to Beck? If you listen to him at “Restoring Honor” and you listen to Newt now, they’re both saying the same thing.
I posted a year ago that Beck would jump on LDS Romney’s bandwagon the minute he declared but then Jon Huntsman complicated matters for him.
Huntsman pulled out, clearing the way for Beck to push his remaining co-religionist, Willard.
Was there ever any doubt that Beck would end up with Romney?
He has been trying to cover his love for former Mormon Romney.
He was just trashing Newt. I turned him off.
I thought the Mormon was endorsing the Mormon.
He’ll either cry or announce that he’s going blind or has a rare disease that must be investigated at the Mayo Clinic. What a bore!
He has been trying to cover up his “mormon” love for Romney.
He was just trashing Newt more than any liberal is capable of doing. I turned him off.
Beck even failed to Jump the Shark. He landed right in the middle of the pen. His media days are pretty much over. He only shares a small fringe of radicals like Michael Wiener/Savage.
I think he is secretly for Newt and he is just faking out the progressives..(LOL Just kidding. No,no! He really is for Ron Paul..just kidding). This is a hoot.
“former” = “fellow”
Man, there is a lot of religious bigotry on Free Republic. I don’t recall that from when I joined. People used to debate issues, and there certainly are enough problems with Romeny to debate.
I also remember when we said charachter mattered (re: Clinton). But judging from all the pro-Newt comments, this appears to have changed, too. I guess we can rationalize anything to suit our ends.
Beck is so 2008.
He’s for Ron Paul and he’s complaining Newt is unelectable? WTF? He has lost it.
If I had been told two years ago that a day would come when the conservative message boards were full of anger at Beck, Coulter and Steyn, I would have thought someone crazy.
Then again, I criticized Beck two years ago at American Thinker and was FLAMED ROYALLY right here at FR - and elsewhere - actually everywhere - but the Rush L Show and the Mark L show.
You asked: “Isnt Beck pushing Ron Paul?”
Beck’s REAL agenda has always been to start a 3rd Party.
Beck: If you Tea Party people vote for anyone other than the one I pick, you must be racists. (paraphrased)

Glenn Beck: Theres no libertarians out there?
GLENN: You know, I have to tell you, the answer is to get away from the two-party system because they are both progressives. Just progressive and progressive light. But theyre both progressives and they have been taking us down this road for over 100 years. And everyone says theres no libertarians out there. There are libertarians out there, and you watch them. You watch them sometimes all the time. Judge Andrew Napolitano is one of them. Judge Napolitano from Fox, welcome...
I didnt hear Beck advocating a third party..
You hear one thing, and others hear something else.
That means that Beck hasnt made himself crystal clear. He needs to tell people the truth - that a third party is an automatic loser, and in light of that fact, classic liberals (nka conservatives) must take the Republican party back from the Progressive liberals (Marxist-Socialists).
So far, he has used weasel words like, unless, as a way to equivocate, ie: A third party will win UNLESS the Republicans and the Democrats wake up..
The phrase, wake up, has as many definitions as there are people with opinions. Of course, by using a phrase like that, he is setting himself up to be in the position to say that they havent woke up enough, and therefore we need a third party.
Unless Beck makes it crystal clear that he is distancing himself from the idea of a third party, you can be absolutely SURE that you will never hear him say: they have woke up enough now.... He will say just the opposite.
Glenn Becks third-party insanity

Beck said on Monday that he could support a third-party challenge if Republicans nominate former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to run for president against Barack Obama. If I had a gun to my head, Ill vote for Mitt Romney, he explained. If its Newt Gingrich, and theres a third party, and its Ron Paul. I might consider Ron Paul as a third party.
This position is nuts. Obviously Mr. Beck needs to generate attention for his new GBTV venture since giving up his popular Fox News platform, but promoting ideas that would lead to an Obama second term is reckless and bad for America.
Make no mistake about it, a third-party presence from the right in the 2012 election would bring about conservative defeat and marginalize the movement for years. Recent history shows that splitting up a party leads to ruination for that party and its main constituent components

This is what Glenn said about Gingrich if he got the nod: http://www.therightscoop.com/glenn-beck-id-consider-ron-paul-as-third-party-over-newt-gingrich/
I refused to even turn on Beck this morning. He sounds like Don Imus. I never believed he was for Santorum...just picked someone who didn’t have much of a chance and thought he could switch to Mitt when Santorum was gone and no one could claim that he was just voting for a Mormon. I do have Boortz on and he is going to explain exactly what Newt’s ethical violations where. So much misinformation about Newt out there. After I prepare my cocks for their next fight I might makes some calls for Newt LOL!!
An unbearable charletan.
Yes he has. Unfortunate, I used to think of Beck as over the top but on the right track and often times correct. Watched him faithfully up until right after "restoring Honor". He seemed to start losing it bad after that.
Now he's as much of a nut case, if not more, than Ron Paul.
Thanks for the update I didn’t hear that.
The reason I didn’t hear that, would be I changed the station at the the top of the hour, specifically to avoid his show.
I’m listening to NOAA weather radio instead.
More compelling by at least half.
He says he’s for Santorum. But Santorum doesn’t have a snowballs chance. Beck knows this is going to end up Newt vs Mitt. At this point it’s clear one of the two will get the nod. Will Beck then go for 3rd party? No. He’ll endorse Mitt - who Beck says is Progressive. If so, why support him?
Really, his hatred of Newt is not very becoming. And it goes against his own code. Would George Washington act like this? And his fury at voters is childish. If he really believes in what he’s saying he needs to explain it in words like a grown up. And another thing, Beck was supposedly a supporter of Perry. Perry is endorsing Newt not Santorum. How does Beck explain that? If Newt is evil then obviously Perry is too.
To me this explains why Beck never liked Palin - something I could never understand. I think now because Sarah Palin was standing between Mitt and the 2012 elections.
Had to turn off Beck today.
Since when is stating the fact that Beck is a Mormon, as is Romney, religious bigotry? That’s simple fact and in now way denigrates the religion. If you’re so thin skinned, I suggest you find something else to do with your time.
I am very confused with Glenn Beck. At one time, I was a huge fan but not sure what happened with him. I never listen to him anymore.
I like Beck most of the time, but if you haven’t been able to detect that he seriously has a screw loose somewhere, you haven’t been paying very good attention. I’m sure having a mormon so close to the presidency, and then being rejected, is very disappointing to him.
Mormonism obviously come up for close scrutiny (esp in the Religion forum). A recently created religion whose beliefs are contrary to the Judeo-Christian tradition should not be surprised to find itself closely examined.
If you think this board is hard on Mormons, please think about what the MSM will do when they decide to pursue that angle of attack.
I was flamed here during his “I’m going blind” crisis several years ago. I knew he was a lunatic hypochondriac but I was condemned for not saying a prayer on his behalf! I wonder where all those folks are now...
I listened to Beck, occasionally. He had (has?) a few good ideas.
Eventually, I got tired of all the hyperbole. "Tune in at the top of the hour for the MOST IMPORTANT announcement ever made in the HISTORY of CREATION! Of this Universe, or ALL OTHERS!!!"
Blah blah blah, pretty soon I tuned him out.
I don't see the bigotry, but I do see the reality. I can guaran-damn-tee you that the South WILL NOT vote for a polytheist. I won't happen. Evangelical voters in the South will stay home if a Mormon is the nominee. I'm not expressing my own view, only the reality of the situation.
You have to understand that Glenn Beck suffers from ADD. He has said as much himself. Yes it is real, I have it and I know. One of the hallmarks of the disorder is to make dramatic changes in life about religion or career choice often and suddenly. I started listening to him back before the 2004 elections. He went through a phase where he wanted to be less political and then right after he got very political on the show. I stopped listening to him when I couldn’t reconcile the contradiction between his rationality in regards to liberty and the constitution and his holding to a totally made up religion.
Beck does seem to have his magic underwear all bunched up today
It is a hoot, isn't it? It's amazing how much folks believe they know...
I thought I was going to laugh myself out of my chair the other day when a FReeper called Rush an extreme leftist...
>>Man, there is a lot of religious bigotry on Free Republic. I dont recall that from when I joined.<<
You and I have different memories. I remember it back in 1998. It actually affected my at my job (Mormon run).
That said, I don’t see it as bigotry. I see it as healthy religious discussion.
FYI, I used a different name back in the day, and only came back last year.
—Beck = Mormon. Romney = Mormon. In a nutshell...—
I got reamed for saying almost exactly the same thing in early January. I apologized, but took the apology back today. ;)
What I said then:
Glenn Beck = Mormon
Mittens = Mormon
End of lesson.
It isn't religious bigotry. It's an attempt to explain Beck's preference for one progressive over another.
in the morning.
I can’t listen anymore.
When Glenn and his crew talked at the same time it as a confusing noise, I turned the dial.
Now he is unbearable.
I don't think Freepers think "Mormon" when they think Romney. I think McCain.
If you were around when Bush was running, you will recognize the pattern. This forum is all in for Newt. Any other choice is an attack on the establishment. No matter that the race is not over, or that Romney or Paul will be better Presidents. The attacks will continue. If you are not for us, obviously you are against us. How is this different than the Democrat style arguments? Zero...as in 0 bama.
Religious bigotry is one thing, however, please do some research on Mormons / cults / mind control, etc. No, I’m NOT wearing a tin-foil hat but have personally been involved with a family member that was drug into the Mormon debacle and is still struggling. Never have seen or been involved in anything like this in my life before this happened.
I don’t think Mittens is that extreme, but I didn’t see this other coming either. NO way will I vote for Mittens, based on my personal involvement.
Also, Mittens is THE establishment candidate, just as McCain was. Romneybots working for McCain were the ones who trashed Sarah Palin - facts, man, just the facts. SHE knows this and that’s why she is quietly trying to steer people away from Mittens and smartly saying that we should not alienate Ron Paul supporters who we need desperately to beat zippy. Paul has threatened to go third party. THAT would be our ruination. So much is at stake here - the very heart of our being.
Think smart - work smart - Newt has fire in his belly to beat zippy. The Tea Party is NOT dead, we’re sick of being pushed down by the establishment GOP like bonehead, Michael Steele, Karl Rove and all the others. Time to step up and take our country back. Newt would not have been my first choice but I’ll be there in a heartbeat before I’ll be for Mittens. So, don’t count this as religious bigotry, please.
Newt is unelectable. He will not win support from independents or women. He will not. He could be the choice of 100% of the Free Republic, but he will not win.
Think back to 1998...at the height of the impeachment scandal. Who was the most hated man in American politics? Was it the depraved liar in the oval office who was about to be impeached? No. It was Newt Gingrich and conservatives in Congress hated him more than anybody. We're in for a disaster if we allow Newt to be our candidate just because he has managed to get off a few good slaps on a couple of reporters in some stupid debate!
“Man, there is a lot of religious bigotry on Free Republic. I dont recall that from when I joined. People used to debate issues, and there certainly are enough problems with Romeny to debate.

Your statements only make sense when realizing that you’re in the tank for JEB:
Jeb Bush pens campaign-like economic manifesto

There are other good people that can be president.
Agreed, but only a few people are actually running. Jeb is easily better than Mitt and Newt, IMHO.
Both he, and Coulter are finished.
I see no reason why you would apologize. It’s a statement of fact. Both are Mormon. And it’s my opinion that has a lot to do with Beck’s hammering at Newt. In no way do I see that as religious bigotry.
Newt’s Catholic. I’m Lutheran. I’m backing Newt, but was somewhat interested in Santorum after Cain ended his campaign. Santorum’s also Catholic. Romney’s Mormon. No, I will not consider supporting him. But it has nothing to do with his Mormonism. It has everything to do with his policies.
Now, I’d entertain someone trying to label me a religious bigot. Anyone willing to go for it?
Right now Beck is trying to minimize Newt’s SC win. Earlier he was saying that people with their little “Newt for President” buttons couldn’t win a factual argument with Obama supporters.
But Beck has said before that he’s always wrong on politics.
So I wish he’d explain why we should listen to him.
this kind of religious bigotry/hatred did not exist on FR back in the 90's. But then again, most of the people who made FR such a special place for conservative conversation are no longer here.
Yeah...'character counts'. I remember that...used to be a rallying cry for principled conservatives. So sad to learn that so many of them were just hypocrites.
