The Five’s Bob Beckel Goes Ballistic On Allen West: ‘Shut Up, You Blowhard!
Mediaite ^ | July 10, 2012 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 07/11/2012 7:49:11 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

On Tuesday’s edition of Fox News’ The Five, the panel debated whether Americans have become too dependent on government assistance today — with liberal co-host Bob Beckel being the lone dissenter on the notion. When the rest of the hosts played a clip from Rep. Allen West (R-FL) reinforcing their point, calling Social Security “modern 21st-century slavery,” Beckel went on a tirade, telling the congressman to “shut up” while calling him a “blowhard.”

Republican nominee Mitt Romney needs to make clear the difference between himself and President Barack Obama, emphasizing the question: “Do you see the average American as an achiever or an ATM?”

If Beckel is looking for a blowhard, I think he needs a mirror.

The Liberals are perfectly fine being racist and are never called out on it when it shows. Beckel says, “Even for YOU, that’s an obscene comment, Alan West.”

There’s no doubt in my mind he meant “Even for a black man” when he said that. Liberals make me sick.

So Col. West sees government dependency enslaving people, calls a spade a spade, and the brilliant liberal response is “shut up!”

Sounds about right.

Consider they’re embrace of everything minority/underdog isn’t about championing a ‘cause’. Its about weapons to shut down debate and a front to hide their true colors behind. This only works if society accepts the lie.

I saw the event live too.

” - - - calling Social Security “modern 21st-century slavery,” Beckel went on a tirade, telling the congressman to “shut up” while calling him a “blowhard.”

This tirade by Lib Bobby B. seems to indicate that FDR’s Socialist Security System is not just the classic Ponzi Scheme, but it is also modern 21st-Century slavery.

Beckel has been called out by a Black Man on the issue of a Federal Program being a form of slavery.

Hey Bobby B., when we want THE EAGLE to fly over our mailbox, don’t we all ask THE MAN who lives in THE BIG HOUSE the same house that is still painted White at 1600 Plantation Avenue?

I believe the subject was Disability scamming. No way non-military Americans are becoming actually disabled at the rate those benefits are being claimed. Beckel is demagoguing as usual.

Here’s his “rebuttal”:
“These people went on disability because they were hurt.”

Oh, really, Bob? What happened this past month that caused such massive, debilitating, and statistically anomalous injuries?

No the liberal response is, “Get back in your place boy—we got your back you gullible whitey haters!”

Widdout us supersmart commie crackers you got nuthin’!

So no matter what the devil does—if he is “African-American” he can count on a 95% black vote minimum!

The most hated people in America by the Left/Democrat Socialists are black conservatives. Through their independence (i.e., freedom) and personal success, black conservatives expose clearly the level of suffering Democrats have inflicted on the vast majority of blacks and black families over the past 100 years.

Oh no, we need him acting as the public face of the RAT Party! He’ll drive more Independents our way than any number of “moderate democrats” ever will.

Besides, it’ll be fun when the inevitable happens, and he’s got to eat crow yet again.

The liberal ideological house of cards is existentially threatened by the potential for blacks realizing that, in voting for liberals, they willingly adopt a different form of slavery.

Col. West, Thomas Sowell and others are reviled for this reason.

The broken dependent ones vote almost a hundred percent for democrats.

Bob Beckel knows this - he's no fool. That patina of 'concern' covering crass hunger for power is becoming obvious to all but the suckups in the MSM....

And the dependent broken ones try to stand up and regain their humanity, dems scare them with threats their money will be taken away.

It's no wonder they become crime addicted and drug dependent.

You are right—the black family was the most oppressed yet most resilient loving unit until LBJ's “Great Society” made it easier for the father to bail and the mother to fail.

LBJ said he made the “N-word plural” vote Democrat for the next 30 years but he underestimated his race hustling poverty pimping followers...

...as have we all.

Ah, yes, the same Bob Beckel who found the lovely "Tiffany" after surfing on the internet and paid her a couple thousand bucks by check to visit his hotel room two times for Bible study.....and then was extorted by her and a couple of her cohourts.

Picture the guy at the carnival who sits on a plank above a tank of water. For a buck you get three beanbags or balls to hit a lever that dumps him in the water.

This is why Fox keeps Beckel on board.....everyone who hates him watches the show so they can throw beanbags at him and hope he tanks.

But he won't. It's ratings uber alles with Fox.....and he'll remain on The View as a overstuffed pinata till he hopefully drowns in his own bilgewater.

Some of our good marines languish in prison on phony charges, while a sleazeball pundit makes a huge TV salary after he conveniently got a pass by authorities on solicitation charges.

I watched The Five this week for the first time in awhile. Juan Williams was in for Beckel. It was so much more tolerable without this bull in a china shop. I actually enjoy Beckel on Hannity and in one on one interviews. He seems like a fairly likable guy, but in the Five, he makes it intolerable to watch. I love the rest of the panel, but he just makes it feel dirty.

“Shut up!” is the typical liberal argument when they have no argument. Andrew Klavan discusses this:

Yes, and that’s what they mean when they say “racist!” as well.

They don’t really think it’s “racist” to dissent, they just mean “shut up!”
