Andrew Breitbart Goes Off On ‘Coward’ Glenn Beck: ‘He Is Dead To Me’
Mediaite ^

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 didn’t 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 he’s 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 don’t know what to say because I know it makes me look like a bad guy and I know Reagan’s 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 you’re sitting there watching him talk about the food shortage stuff, he doesn’t tell you this ties to the Mormon Church. He doesn’t talk to you about his investors. He doesn’t tell you that they’re paying for him to create a crisis. He always talks about Cloward-Piven and how Rahm Emanuel said ‘Don’t let a good crisis go to waste,’ but creating a hysteria that there’s 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. He’s 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 he’s been taking people’s content for years and not crediting it.”

At the end of the interview, the podcast’s 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 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.

Andrew Breitbart has on the advisory board of GOProud.

He’s not a conservative.

Beck’s a Mormon - that is fueling his animus towards anyone not named Romney (or Huntsman).

Maybe he endorsed Romney because he’s a fellow Mormon. Perhaps they plan on ruling neighboring universes once they become gods.

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 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.

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.

Beck has always been a useful idiot.

However, I think he has had the pleasure of our company, and camaraderie too long, and he has reached his expiration date.

I don't know and couldn't care less about the "Breibart/Beck beef." But is this true that Beck pulled the race card on the Tea Party? Crap.

I opined here once before, long ago, that the problem with Beck is that he occasionally gives free rein to his inner asshole. Looks like he might have done it again.

He was exactly that when I heard him in Florida ~10 years ago.

Beck earns his living as a pundit and entertainer.

If everything he said just repeated or echoed what others said or what people already thought, he’d be unnecessary and it would affect his earnings. So he’s got to be controversial and “out there” - but in balance. And that’s the problem: Beck has been getting less and less balanced, and many who used to find him entertaining have been driven away by his crazy talk, like this.

Just remember, Beck has one vote like everyone else. We were each born with a brain of our own, why rely on Beck or anyone else to form your opinions?

For me, he and most of his ilk have always been unnecessary and irrelevant.

I am surprised that more people have noticed the Mormon connection since Beck started hammering on Gingrich in the recent interview. Brietbart has some good points. While I vehemently disagree with Breitbart on GoProud, that does not discredit him everywhere. He’s done a lot for conservatives. I had hoped that Beck wouldn’t let his Mormonism affect his coverage of the race, it appears it has.

He’s said some good things about her, but his hand wringing over her and snide comments here and there make it pretty clear that he sees her as a threat to Romney and is acting accordingly.

Re; Beck “He also expressed regret for having asserted last year that Mr. Obama was a racist with a “deep-seated hatred for white people,” a comment that many critics felt undercut Mr. Beck’s assertion of racial tolerance.”

“It was poorly said — I have a big fat mouth sometimes,” Mr. Beck said.

You know, while you’re sitting there watching him talk about the food shortage stuff, he doesn’t tell you this ties to the Mormon Church.

Not does he reveal that he owes his entire career to the LDS. And Glenn is bashing Newt on behalf of the LDS for Romney, to support the Mormon "White Horse Prophecy". Glenn knows if he goes against the LDS that made him, they will take it all away. The same national radio deal Beck got the day after he was "baptized" as a Mormon would disappear.
