Are You A “Becker?”
Elective Decisions ^ | 02/22/10 | Chris Davis

Posted on 02/22/2010 1:04:12 PM PST by writer33

Do you feel the incessant need to blame Republicans for all the evil in the world? Do you breakdown into fits of crocodile tears? Do you constantly say that America must be unified to defeat Democrats when we’re already unified against the liberal agenda? Do you feel that a third party will solve all of America’s ills? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above questions, then you’re likely a “Becker.”

Beck doesn’t slam just Republicans, He slams the illness that has weaseled and infected both parties, especially the Democrats and especially the Republicans, that disease is called “Progressive”. It is important to root it out in the Republican party as the Democrat party is a lost cause and the patient is almost flat lines, there is still hope to save the elephant, but you HAVE to attack the Illness aggressively because we are slipping away quickly into that European socialist good night....

Yep, I’m a Becker.

BTW, I’ve never heard Beck advocating a third party.

It’s fun to see all of the ebstalishment types whine.

Must be painful to see the conservative agenda actually being advanced.

Wrong Buzzard Breath. I believe we are infiltrated and infested with Communists and Progressives in both parties. 99% in Democrats and a fair percent of RINOS. Beck does not want a 3rd party. He wants to retake the Republicans and oust the RINOS.

Ouch. One of my favorite FReepers now being removed from the ping list. LOL!

I don't hate Beck, but CPAC went way overboard when America is more awake now than it has ever been. Continuing to point fingers at Republicans isn't helping anymore when the people of the various states are selecting conservatives on their own. Christie, Rubio, etc...all doing well.

I have never watched Beck’s show on Fox, although I have seen some clips on Youtube, and I saw the CPAC speech the other night (because he was on after Coulter :) ... I never got the impression Beck was a third party sort though. He did give the Republicans hell in that speech, but I happen to agree with it. Either the Republicans have been too gutless to fight for the principles they espouse, or they are so busy “reaching across the aisle” that the Democrat agenda makes its way into law anyway. The thing he said about “It not enough just to suck less than the other party” was exactly right.

But I didn’t hear him say anything about a 3rd party.

This is absolutely the worst kind of muddled thinking and grade-school playground debate tactics that I could imagine. Rather than address the criticisms that Beck asserts regarding the Republican Party, the author (presumably you), makes up a silly term like “Becker”, and uses that term to trivialize and ridicule anyone who is fed up with liberalism in the Republican Party. This is exactly the kind of thing I would expect from some idiot yahoo in the leftwing MSM, but someone who calls himself conservative should know better. Congratulations for using childish Alinsky tactics on your own allies. It’s a lot easier than thinking.

I disagree with the crocodile tears thing as well; I like Beck because I believe he is genuine. I tend to choke up when discussing the founders or even listening to Ronald Reagan at times. Do you think Bush was faking all of those tears?

I fully support Glenn Beck’s search for current political truth and transparency. And he has been smart enough not to ask us to vote for him for public office. His place is out there doing research and sharing it with us IMO.

Now Glenn: If you lighten up just a bit every once in awhile people won’t get too burned out on doomsday, even if it is coming soon.

We can’t rend our clothing and gnash our teeth five days a week. We can’t afford all the clothing and we are quickly running out of short, stubby teeth. ;0)

Go Glenn!

Has Beck called for a third party or has he simply said that RINO’s will cause one to happen?

I listened to the speech and he said not all Republicans are progressive, He also said when are they as a party going to get it and kick out the rino’s in so many words. He is correct that they did run the country and did spend like drunken sailors. He does not advocate a third party. So what is this all about? Ratings? Good old boy network?

Saying that “we need to get away from a two-party system” is not the same thing as actively advocating a third party. You’re an over-reaching amatuer (who his humor pieces are not funny) prone to exaggeration. Go back to your blog.

One source here: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/2009/09/22/2009-09-22_mccain_would_have_been_worse_for_the_country_than_obama_glenn_beck_tells_katie_c.html#ixzz0gDChRG7i

Conservative Fox News personality Beck also said that he may have voted for Hillary Clinton over McCain had Clinton been the Democratic nominee in 2008.

“I can’t believe I’m saying this, I think I would have much preferred her as president and may have voted for her against John McCain,” he tells Couric.

Here: http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/196/24957/
“ 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 they’re both progressives and they have been taking us down this road for over 100 years.”

Money post......$$$

Beck in only articulating what THOUSANDS of freepers have posted since I started coming here. I have heard him say repeatedly that a 3rd party is not the route to go, we need to take back the Republican Party.

Thing is, he ridiculed the birthers, and now there is hell to pay.

What really gets me about Beck’s style is his aping of William F. Buckley. Leaning back in his chair, tie slightly askew, gesticulating and taking an inordinate amount of time to articulate his question.... that said, all that emotionalism makes me cringe.

Anyone else see it?

Around our house we’ve been disgusted with Republicans for quite a few years now. IMO, Beck’s just telling it like it is. The spending and earmarks during the Bush years, when we controlled all houses, was absurd. It didn’t “cause” the entire financial breakdown, but it didn’t do anything to help the situation. The GOP was in the position that the Dems are now (WH, House and Senate), and they squandered their opportunity to get our financial house in order.

Sorry Chris but I have been pinged to way too many threads today regarding Glenn Beck. I do watch his program but I a not a ‘Becker’. However, I said the following..

Is today ‘Bash Glenn’ day? Sorry, I didn’t get the memo :).

And that’s all I have to say about that :o}

I absolutely agree with that, but continuing on this crusade isn't accomplishing anything right now. He should be pointing out the productive things now.

I like Glenn. I also like Levin, Rush, Laura. They all are different and they each come from different angles.

There doesn’t have to be a 3rd party. How about the top DC GOP bigwigs change their tune and not ask us to get excited over the next RINO they have already prechosen for us, Like...uh, lets say Romney.

His turn, right GOP?

He’s aping all of the so-called snobby intellectual newspaper elite. He has never mentioned Buckley. It’s mostly aimed at Joe Klein.

But FWIW, Buckley and Will fit the category as well.

On Beck’s radio show today he said is absolutely against a [conservative] third party and that the only way to set things right is by working within the two party system we currently have — he simply wants the Republican Party to be reflective of conservativism which all to many in the Republican Party do not reflect: McCain, Graham, Collins, Snowe, etc.

I agree completely.

FWIW, late last year I though Beck may have been in the early stages of pushing for a third party but it appears that is not the case.
