Skip to comments.Andrew Breitbart Goes Off On ‘Coward’ Glenn Beck: ‘He Is Dead To Me’
Posted on 12/12/2011 5:17:38 PM PST by mnehring
Glenn Beck is very much not a fan of Newt Gingrich. If anyone didnt yet know that from this interview, he made it very clear Saturday on Fox Business Network when he alleged that Gingrich was so similar to President Obama in his progressive ways, that the only reason Tea Partiers would like him over the President would be because of his race. Unsurprisingly, this has caused some anger. Even less surprisingly, one of those angry voices is Andrew Breitbart, a man who is very much not a fan of Glenn Beck.
Breitbart appeared on the Victory Sessions podcast and slammed Beck for, as his BigGovernment site put it, pulling the race card on the Tea Party. However, the Beck/Breitbart beef goes back a far way and one could tell this had as much to do with a heated, longstanding grudge as with the Tea Party comment.. In fact, Breitbart only discussed that comment briefly before moving on to a list of the many slights he feels hes received from Beck. He accused Beck of throwing him under the bus during the Shirley Sherrod scandal and trash talking him in private while poaching employees to create rival website The Blaze).
This was clearly personal.
I dont know what to say because I know it makes me look like a bad guy and I know Reagans 11th Commandment, but how many times can you have a baseball bat taken to your rib cage by a gang that have GBTV on your jerseys before you stand up for yourself?
This guy has always been about himself. You know, while youre sitting there watching him talk about the food shortage stuff, he doesnt tell you this ties to the Mormon Church. He doesnt talk to you about his investors. He doesnt tell you that theyre paying for him to create a crisis. He always talks about Cloward-Piven and how Rahm Emanuel said Dont let a good crisis go to waste, but creating a hysteria that theres going to be food storages because of chaos that is coming he is profitting off this as well. There is a financial stake for him with food storage companies that advertise on his site. This guy is a huckster. Hes always been a huckster. It was only a few years ago that he was a shock jock, that he was a morning zoo guy. And hes been taking peoples content for years and not crediting it.
At the end of the interview, the podcasts host Stephen K. Bannon put it explained that this seemed to be something that comes from [Breitbart's] heart and that might be an understatement.
Beck as been dead to me for bout two years. He is a nut.
Beck has been dead to me ever since he endorsed Mitt Romney back in 2008.
He’s a phony-baloney-good-time-Charley bilking the public.
I used to like Beck. In the last two weeks, that has soured.
Andrew Breitbart has on the advisory board of GOProud.
He’s not a conservative.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Beck’s a Mormon - that is fueling his animus towards anyone not named Romney (or Huntsman).
Is it just me or does anyone else sometimes mistakenly say “Jeff Beck” when you really mean to say “Glenn Beck”?
Maybe he endorsed Romney because he’s a fellow Mormon. Perhaps they plan on ruling neighboring universes once they become gods.
Everyone falls off the wagon.
Here Glenn, have a beer. .... -What you don’t drink anymore? You were an an alcoholic?
Okay, have a puff of this weed then.
OK people, lets not be like democraps...
Beck is WRONG on this but he is RIGHT on so much more that the media has ignored.
Who would have known about George Soros and the pupet masters behind Obama if not for Beck?
I DISAGREE with him on this- I like Newt as the best we have left to choose from in this race- but he is not ‘dead to me’ because I disagree.
“I used to like Beck. In the last two weeks, that has soured.”
I have to agree. IMHO Glenn has jumped the shark. I agree with Andrew on this one.
If you think this next election is going to make a difference in where this country is headed, get back to me in 2014.
The handle has been pulled, and how many swirls we make around the bowl before heading to the septic tank is all we’re talking about.
Beck is a Mormon...the cult is calling!
I can’t listen to the Conservative channel on Sirus in the morning any more, Beck is a shock jock, a morning zoo guy, a hustler, a phony bomb thrower.
No content, no ratings, I can’t understand why He’s on.
When I saw Beck interviewing Sarah Palin, clearly trying to damage her and then you see him only mildly and politely criticize Romney I knew what this election was about for Beck.
Electing someone who shares his religion is clearly the most important issue on the table for him. And if he needs to call tea partiers racist, or trash Palin to make that happen, he’s willing to do it.
Amen Andrew. Amen brother.
What is the litmus test ?
