VIDEO! Glenn Beck: “Mitch McConnell Is As Big Of A Danger To This Country As Barack Obama Is”
The Right Scoop ^ | 4/5/14 | Caleb Howe

Posted on 04/06/2014 7:56:44 AM PDT by absentee

In Louisville, Kentucky today, Freedomworks hosted #FreePAC, a gathering of right and center right grassroots activists. The keynote speaker was Glenn Beck, who had strong words for Mitch McConnell and other republican party leaders.

[video at link]


"I told you at the very beginning what this administration tries to do you and what the progressives on the right, let me tell you something, Mitch McConnell is as big of a danger to this country as Barack Obama is. The progressive disease is in both parties. Big government is a philosophy in both parties, period. It is antithetical to the American system. Period."

Now that is throwing down the gauntlet. Glenn had the crowd on their feet several times, and, like Matt Kibbe's and Matt Bevin's speeches before his, the biggest applause came when attacking the Republican party leadership, or what many grassroots attendees refer to as "the party establishment." A central theme of the day was "throw the bums out."

I disagree.

Mitch is a hapless RINO who wants nothing more than to hold on to his perks but I don’t think he wants to intentionally destroy the country.

GB’s thrown in totally with the libertarians and has been a lossey-goosey quasi-preacher for the quasi-LDS for some time now (quasi squared).

He’s been snakebit by the Saudi student connection to Boston Bombing & resulting suit, as valid as that appeared to be early on (Obozo calling in Saudi ambassador to WH right there when the semi-injured defiant bird was at Tufts Medical). BTW Nat Geo channel having a special tonight on Boston Bombing. I doubt they’ll make FBI squirm though.

He should put the plug in the dry-drunk jug and get back to his Catholic roots.

Beck’s verging on entering Alex Jones territory. Each does an enormous amount of serious, solid, important reporting but ya can’t bring them up at holiday dinners with the relations because they’ve significantly stumbled. I’ll still selectively listen. Well nobody has things 90% correct.

Can’t wait to hear what Ann Coulter says- if she’ll bother.

I haven’t listened to Glenn Beck since he discouraged further investigation of Obama’s citizenship qualifications to be president when he had his Fx News show. In fact, I think that Beck, OReilly, and Hanity are as dangerous to the country as Obama is because they pass themselves off as conservatives but almost never discuss the fed’s constitutionally limited powers.

Sorry, but that is just plain stupid. Associating McConnell and saying he is JUST AS BAD as Obama is a shark jumping moment.

It’s hard for Glenn to see the difference when his eyes are always rimmed with tears.

No, he isn’t.

he is a schemer, a wheeler dealer, a plotter, a ladder climber, a back stabber, and an enabler of tyranny.

He is as dangerous as almost all of the rest of the GOP and for the same reason.

The people of Kentucky are also dangerous for continually re-electing this bad man.

Stupid people need to wake the Hell up, or they will be paying a mighty high price.

Mc Connell < enabling >

This guy is a turncoat of the worst kind.

He fills a slot, so a decent person can’t.

He goes along to get along, with the worst people possible.

He has got a moral clue in his decayed head.

Yeah, right. Sent of God to attend cockfighting rallys, no doubt.

Intent is not the issue. Obama would not, nor would any other, inflict damage if it were not for the enablers in the congress. McConnell will shut down those who try to stop BO. Already has How is that not as or even more dangerous?

You said...
“Liberalism in any form is either Communist or Fascist. Both are dangerous to us You don’t understand history.”

Well, it’s painfully obvious that either you didn’t read what I wrote or you reacted to it before thinking

I hope you don’t go through life the same way

WRONG! Mitch is as equally bad a Obama. It is simple to understand.

You either believe in tyranny or Liberty. We all see the tyranny of Obama. Unlike us, Mitch could have done something.

The simple fact that Mitch has done NOTHING to fight Obama clearly shows that Mitch McConnel does not disagree with Obama. His inaction is an endorsement.

Mitch is an evil man who show be thrown out of office. He is not a nice guy.

The only difference between Obama and McConnell is the rate of speed at which they spend the nation deeper into debt and destruction.

I've noticed the same thing. I think Beck is jockeying to some day run as the Liber(al)tarian candidate for Pres. Hence, he has sort-of, kind-of, almost come out for homosexual marriage. Believes in "more free speech" whatever that means. I guess he is ok with rivers of verbal bilge.
