Glenn Beck: I Hate Republicans, Too
Newsmax ^ | June 29, 2011 | Newsmax

Posted on 06/30/2011 7:10:00 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Glenn Beck is making it clear that he’s no partisan — he hates Republicans as much as he does Democrats, if not more.

In a tease for his new Web TV venture, GBTV, Beck said he dislikes members of the GOP immensely, according to Politico.

“I hate them. I think they are as much of a problem as the other side," Beck says in a new interview released just before his last show on Fox News.

In one video preview, Beck asks himself and Raj Nair, GBTV’s head correspondent, about what the average person thinks of his political leanings, and Nair agrees that the perception is that he is a Republican.

Not so, says Beck.

“I hate them. I think they are as much of a problem as the other side,” Beck says, walking alongside Nair on the streets of New York. He then invokes George Washington, saying Washington warned of the danger in political parties.

“If you speak out in today’s world, you’re either a Republican or Democrat. How about just being real?” he later says.

Glenn forgot to say the most important word...........

Progressive!

Far too many people in the republican party are progressives. He’ll will gladly chum up with conservatives in the GOP. Call in and start talking about Jason Chaffetz, and get ready for a gush fest...............

Or Jim Demint. Neither one are progressives.

Translation: He hates politicians

I watched his last TV show today. It seemed like he intended to explain something about his future plans but if he did I didn’t catch it.

One of my favorite examples of late is Fred Upton.

Lately he’s whining about the EPA preventing offshore drilling but he himself has voted to ban slant drilling under the great lakes from shore.

Amen to that. Being a rightwing, conservative is more important than being a RINO, er I mean..Republican.

“The most conservative person on the ballot gets my vote, No More Rinos!”

I can see where you’re coming from, but here’s the rub: even if genuinely conservative Democrats survive the primaries and somehow win the general election, they inevitably knuckle under to DNC leadership when the really important votes come around. Besides, for any politician to get elected, he or she has to appeal to the party base— and that means cutting deals with far more liberal elements of the Democrat Party.

Was that Beck or Savage (or both) that was undecided until the last week, about whether to vote for McCain or Obama?

Just moments after his "I hate Republicans, too" remark a weepy, preachy Beck then went on to make a heartfelt plea to his audience not to give in to hate, but to love their political opponents.

Fred Upton.......... *sigh*

I could rant about him for an hour. But I won’t. He is like so many other progressives in the republican party. Not worth the time.

We just need to identify them, and defeat them.

Beck has gone over the edge as he became too aware too fast. He can't handle it. It is better to become aware over a period of many years. When your illusion of what is really going on becomes shattered too quickly it is very disturbing emotionally.

They had eight, no wait six, because of their previous FU's, to shrink - not expand - the fed. What did they do? WHAT did they do?

John Derbyshire: Eight Wasted Years
...Margaret Thatcher used to talk about the “ratchet effect.” When the Left gets power, she said, they drive everything Left; when the Right gets power, they slow the Leftward drive, perhaps even halt it for a spell; but nothing ever gets moved to the Right. U.S. politics in the 21st century so far bears out this dismal analysis. What does the Right have to show for eight years of a Republican presidency? I supported George W. Bush in 2000 because I thought he had a conservative bone in his body somewhere. I supported him in 2004 because I thought him the lesser of two evils. At this point, I wouldn’t let the fool park his car in my driveway. Bruce Bartlett was right, every damn word...

uh, there is a world of difference between the parties. are there moron Republicans? Hell yes. are there sane Democrats? not many.

The preponderance of sanity is on the Republican side.

I really get irritated when a Democrat is in power, how everyone says “THEY’RE ALL A BUNCH OF CROOKS”. But when a Republican is in power the meme is “THE REPUBLICANS ARE CROOKS!”

If was asked if he’s trying to save the country. He said he’s trying to save the world. Wow! That’s a pretty big assignment.

I still wish I could ask him who exactly he thinks we’re going to shoot with those guns he’s telling us to get. And how long before the shooting starts.

The one and same.

Actually I’m irritated that the GOP house isn’t keeping the democrats in session to deal with energy policy. A few years back when Pelosi was in control, gas was over $4 a gallon and she went on summer break.

I can’t stand ‘em either. I’m with Glenn.

I’ll say that there are a few good members of the GOP, obviously, but for the most part, they are part of the problem.

In fact, I think I’m pretty much at the point where I’m ready to say that government is the problem, and we would be better off without it, a lot better off.

If man has proven one thing it is that he is incapable of ruling other men, because he is corrupt, and he cannot be trusted with power.

A moral man can and should rule himself, and he should not allow himself to be ruled by immoral men, as we are now.

Dunno. All I know is he could not handle all the awareness he was exposed to in a short period of time. In my opinion he seems to think he has to be responsible for educating the unaware. He is overloading their fuses and they are confused. He thinks it is a conspiracy.

Glenn is on record as saying that the food stores you set aside for your family should be protected with force if necessary. Please, try not to paint Glenn as some namby pamby wimp just because media whoredom does it. If you had watched Glenn’s show for a more than one or two episodes, you would have seen a show where he talked about taking shooting lessons and learning to handle firearms, for protecting his family. We all ought to do that little bit at least!

Again, exactly who will I defend my family against? I have my own beliefs as to who it will be. But who does Beck believe it will be? Will it be government troops? Or will it be hungry hordes?

I’ve got a thousand rounds. When I shoot those coming after my “stuff” what do I do with the bodies? When I’ve killed 999 people do I use the last round on myself? I’m being serious.

No, if you were being serious you would not have claimed you could shoot 999 dead with 1000 rounds.BUT if you were being serious, I would tell you to make contact with neighbors and friends who see the coming troubles also, and plan to pool your efforts for the survival of good people over slugs who intend to live off of the work of those who have prepared for difficult times. I’m prepared to arm my best neighbors and family members. In Glenn’s case, he is moving his fzmily to a much friendlier region (Texas) where he will be among like minds.

I’ve got the advantage of living in a tiny town where most people seem to keep a fair amount of food on hand so we don’t have to worry about the neighbors much.

Actually I do think Glenn tends to underestimate the goodness of flyover country Americans. Media people tend to live in large metropolitan areas and it makes them kind of clueless about the generosity and strength of rural and small town people.

This kind of crap drives me nuts.

Here we are in a life and death struggle with the left. All democrats are hard leftist, America hating idiots who will destroy this country in a heartbeat. Moreover, the only party that has genuine conservatives in it is the Republican party. So how about we applaud that and expand the amount of conservatives in it?

There.
Is.
No.
Other.

Period.

Glenn needs to go screw himself for this kind of commentary, it doesn't help to make the two parties seem equal in their leftist proclivities.

Reagan would never have done this. No self respecting conservative would agree with him when he does this crazy sh*t.

They start to stink after a few days, so only leaving them downwind works to your advantage. Now when they mass up and head toward your position, dropping several in the front, to create a choke point for taking your time to get the ones struggling to get over the bodies works well ... just sayin’ ...’course, then you have to drag the refuse to a down wind position.

Yep, no place better than a small town, preferably a fair distance from an interstate. Here in the midwest there are small towns 5 or 10 miles in every direction that are a great network of support.

Yeah there must be at least a half dozen. LOL

That kind of sheeplike "any republican is better than a democrat" thinking is the kind of crap that almost gave us Jason Allen in the 1st district seat vacated by Bart Stupak. For those that don't know, Jason Allen was the "republican" who sponsored the bill that forced home child care workers into a union against their will. Our current michigan senate majority leader was a co sponsor of that bill.

Today was Beck's goodbye show. I will miss him precisely because he says stuff like this. He was a refreshing change from the Hannity RNC Koolaid show where his 'Great American Panel" is Hannity and two Republicans that agree with him. But let's face it, FNC is the Republican channel. Where-ever Republicans go, FNC will be there with them. (I really like Cavuto and his business channel though, and Brett Bauer's show too)
