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....

Beck has been an ex-alcoholic for years. I say has been.

Looks like he’s hitting the bottle pretty hard these days.

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.

They can’t but Beck wouldn’t be the first Temple Mormon to not follow that particular rule.

And, he seems to think no one has noticed he didn’t say the same thing about Romney. Newt is not a tea party conservative by far, but he is still to the right of Romney.

Wow! Really disappointing. I’m not sure how long he plans to be around without his tea party listeners, but not long. I can handle him being wrong and differing in opinion but pulling a liberal stunt like the race card?! Disgusting.

Agreed — Beck has lost it. Have no idea why but he certainly jumped the shark here. He used to make sense but not with this kind of talk.

Bye bye Glenn.

Beck is just fantasizing about a Mormon President and he’s gone all cultish on us. I like Beck, but not enough to vote for Romney. (See tagline)

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.

No such animal as an “ex-alcoholic”. Recovering, yes. Ex, no.

I’d like to think he’s just having a meltdown from which he can eventually emerge.

The only reason Beck is talking loud is that Newt looks seriously ahead of Romney.

Gingrich too lily white or sumfin?

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. Black heart? Different story.

Ridiculous. I like Beck, but I can vote for Gingrich, and it’s not because he’s white.

It’s because when he gives a speech he can enumerate conservative principles. Yes, I know he doesn’t follow them all the time, but I like what he says. Mitt, on the other hand, follows them about the same amount of time and doesn’t talk as well.

And if they are going to make this about Gingrich’s wives, Mitt tied his dog to the top of the car for hours and tortured it.

I think it’s a Mormon thing.

Glenn is living a lie, but it has nothing to do with alcohol. He is dry. He is however pushing in subtle ways the religion of mormonISM while still trying to teach US that the founders were Christians inspired by God in the forming of this Republic. MormonISM is founded upon the assertion that Christianity was in total apostasy until Joe Smith was 'riased up in these latter days' to restore Christianity to humankind. Living a lie that big does weird things to a man's psyche. He will either eventually leave the ISM or suffer the mental break which hallmarks reality slapping a liar down to size. ... And I offer that as a friend to Glenn Beck.

Sherrod was promptly denounced and fired before anyone thought to check the full address which decided un-racist.

Her address decided un-racist?! What the hell does that grammatical bingo mean?

Sherrod's speech was racist in both long and short form, despite the post dust-up spin.

Looks as If Becks GBTV is not covering the expenses. Needs to hype something up to get attention and get more to sign up.

Beck is a opportunist, and will do anything to get attention. That is a trait with those with AADD.

Glenn spent six months talking non-stop about how we should stand with Israel no matter what ...how he would always stand with Israel, he would give his life for Israel. ...today he says he could vote for Ron Paul as 3rd party candidate over Newt Gingrich ....I would like to see Glenn or one his followers explain that statement ...voting Ron Paul does not go with standing for Israel ..sorry ...he’s lost his mind or is just a damn liar

That's about right. Heck, you have to be at least 12½ % black to qualify for affirmative action quotas for college admission, IIRC. I bet he cheated on that too. His life is a lie.

I can’t stomach Newt and will not vote for him.

But for Beck to say there is no difference between Newt and Obama is laughable.

One more thing. Beck jumped on the Cain trashing wagon as soon as the first woman came out. Yet I have yet to see one single bit of evidence of Cain doing those things. Yet there is a long list of evidence of the shyster things those bimbos did in their lives.

Never trusted Beck. I always thought, what the hell is this guy up to?

If Beck said that he is an evil low life bastard.

Beck logic: obama is a socialist, so Gingrich is a socialist, so the whole Tea Party is racist.

What a total 100% jerkweed. Yeah, everyone in the Tea Party is listening to Beck’s analysis of teddy Roosevelt as the proof Gingrich is a socialist. No one could be thinking a little more recently, of Gingrich as leader of the conservative revolution.

Glenn Beck used to say a lot of interesting things. Lately, it seems like he is just saying whatever it takes to be noticed. He is enduring a self-imposed exile to GBTV, and it looks like thing just aren’t working out as planned.

But sniping at Republicans is not going to help. It may get his name into the MFM, but there is nobody who will read this sort of nonsense and say, “Gee, I want pay good money to tune into GBTV so I can hear more of this!”
