I dont dislike Glenn Beck, and often listen to his TV show, especially his Founders Fridays which I record to supplement my sons American history lessons. But often he says things I strongly disagree with, like when he talks about a moral equivalencies between the Republicans and the Democrats. This is when he is showing his Libertarian stripes and is sounding more like a Ron Paul, a Michael Savage, or even the conspiracy obsessed Larouchers, than he does a Rush Limbaugh. This same disagreement can be seen right here on FR as we have our own 12% or so Libertarians who post here.
Let me be clear, There is NO moral equivalencies between the two Parties.
Granted the Republicans are not perfect, but when you look at how they voted on funding the troops, obamacare, tax cuts, the non-Stimulus Package, and how this minority party stands in the way of the Pelosi / Obama agenda time and time again, bringing that out of control train to a crashing halt, I cant help but be proud to be a Republican.
He doesn’t have to tote the GOP water for them, but If Beck would only stress more the importance of the Republicans taking back power in November and then holding the Republican Leaders feat to the fire, I would have a whole lot more interest in his show, and more positives things to say about his show.
Glenn Beck went on a kick of bashing Progressives. He then wanted and did enlighten the public on what a real progressive is. Taking that angel as he did, He noted Teddy Roosevelt was a progressive and started his own progressive party. So he correlated it to the fact that progressives are trying to take over the country and infiltrate both parties. He tied it all back to Juan McAmnesty. Juanny boy is a progressive. Juan likes Teddy. SO with all that in mind he hot the rinos between the eyes and tied them to being progressives not conservatives or traditional republicans. The Republican has a problem with people like Lindsey Grahmnesty and Olympia Snowe in the party. So Beck states that both parties suck and just like gets flack on the left by Progressives/ Liberals/ Statists/ Marxists then the right attacks hima s well. Namely a guy named Mark Levin, who seems to be out trying to defend McCain.
