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.
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...

Beck ‘ain’t no Rush Limbaugh,’ says Mark Levin

True. Right now, he’s another attractive Pied-Piper like Perot was, and in spite of Rush’s warning at the time, many people followed him right over the cliff.
Right now, the “bad-cop” blow-back he’s getting from Levin, along with the “good-cop” blow-back he’s getting from Rush (re playing with the idea of a third party) are both warnings to him to either help us conservatives take back the Republican Party from the RINOS, or he can expect us to turn the “marginalization” heat up even higher on him.
There are only two VIABLE political parties. The way things are set up by these two parties make it an impossibility for a third party to win due to the electoral college. Beck will eventually see the light, heed the warnings and decide to be a team player, or he will self-destruct and wind up a laughing stock.

I remember reading on FR two or three years ago that Levin didn't like Beck, and I was baffled by that at the time. Now I get it. Mark was right. My own awakening to Beck's slimy ways came last year when a local radio talk show host had Beck on as a guest. The next day on his radio show, Beck misrepresented the conversation the two had (about Obama's birth certificate) in a disgusting, dishonorable way. I remember thinking to myself, my God, Beck talks about honor all the time, and here he is flat-out lying about the conversation he had.
I've seen a lot I don't like since then, too, such as Beck pulling the race card on the Tea Party. Beck is, simply put, a sneaky, dishonorable man out for himself.
