Glenn Beck: Cliven Bundy ‘unhinged’
Politico ^ | 04/24/2014 | JONATHAN TOPAZ

Posted on 04/24/2014 9:30:04 AM PDT by GIdget2004

Glenn Beck criticized Cliven Bundy’s comments on race on his radio program Thursday, saying the Nevada rancher is “unhinged from reality” and urging his supporters to “end your relationship” with him.

“He’s often wondered if black people would be better of as slaves?” Beck said on his program, after reading from Bundy’s comments on race reported by The New York Times. “End your relationship. End your relationship. If that doesn’t end your relationship with him, you have to go back and question where did you go wrong. You wondered if blacks were better off as slaves picking cotton and having a family life? They didn’t have a family life!”

The radio host and former Fox News contributor had previously urged conservatives not to align too closely with Bundy. Earlier this month, he warned that the standoff between Bundy and the federal government had brought in “violent, anti-government groups.”

Beck in particular zeroed in on Bundy’s comments about “family life” during slavery. “If he really thinks that slaves had a family life, just that shows you how unhinged from reality this guy is,” Beck said. “You’ve got to distance yourself, you must know who you are standing next to at all times.”

None of this has any bearing on what we all witnessed last week where an out of control, militarized federal government brought their storm troopers to “protect” a freaking turtle and steal an old man’s cows.

Unhinged?

Compared to what?

An out of control POTUS ruling by diktat?

I don't think so.

IMHO... this is how this is playing out. Many Americans support Bundy. In order to remove such support so the government can come in (and remove him or kill him), they have to remove the support. This is probably the “first” story. There will be more. They will dig up some high school sweetheart who says he beat/raped her. They will “discover” child porn. They will do whatever it takes to take the man’s image and make it monstrous. Many Americans still believe what they see on the news or read in print. I also fully expect a “breaking news” story where Reid saves a choking person or something similar. Just my predictions...

Statement heard by one(?) reporter.

No recording?

At this point sounds like attack on Bundy.

Even if he said what was ‘reported,’ he IS correct.

Every time I hear anything from Beck, it reiforces my instinct that there is something "off" with him.

Even when I agree with the substance, he comes at things an an oblique angle from me.

But isn't this the honest discussion about race that Mr Holdren wanted; perhaps he's right when he says Americans are too cowardly to discuss it.

Mr Beck, I'm looking at you.

Its not hard to tell when values & principles claimed by a talk show host on the air several hours a day are just a shtick they've found profitable or are heartfelt.

Savage, Beck are the former. Mark Levin I'd count among the latter.

Not sure what happened to Glenn Beck.

I was a fan of his for a long time. Still am to a degree. But he seems to be on the wrong side of things lately.

Entitled to his opinion, sure... but he’s wrong on this. Completely.

Beck’s next outburst: “Bundy is a heterofascist who wants to kill gays, he’s a Putin sympathizer! Shoot him then melt his gold teeth and send it to me!”

People rallied to Bundy’s defense not because of him. I couldn’t care less if it was a member of the Black Panthers! The Fed are in the wrong. THEY have seized land they have no right to, and terrorized civilians. None of this is about Bundy, YOU IDIOT! Bundy could be a David Koresh grade nutjob and it wouldn’t change a thing! THE FEDS ARE TYRANNICAL!!!

Same ole play book. When the rich and powerful get caught, they make personal attacks to destroy people. Remember Clinton’s attack on “trailer park trash” etc.

Bundy’s beliefs, character or lack there of, has nothing to do with whether or not the Government is behaving in an unconstitutional manner.

The BLM still sent what amounts to a military to collect a bill. BLM was ready to shoot a citizen over an unpaid bill. We don’t have debtor’s prisons in this country. Owing money is not a capital offense, and if it were, the Congress Critters and Federal Government are the worst offenders.

IMHO, Beck’s a snake oil salesman and a nutcase. I base this on his “religious” preference.

He was Catholic, then became Mormon. He claims he deeply researches everything he’s interested in, however I don’t think he spent much time researching his new “faith.”

I think one of his goals is to legitimize Mormonism because he equates this cult with Christianity and people who don’t know the truth about Mormonism believe him.

I used to listen to him about 5 years ago...but stopped when he started pushing his “religion.”

So, Beck believes in Freedom of Speech in the same manner as the Progressives? Beck is pushing another side of PC speech and that disgusts me more then anything Bundy could have said.

I hope very much that Bundy was misquoted. But, if the report is accurate, he has done great damage. This goes beyond PC. He (Bundy) has stuck a "kick me" tag on his own ass.

(I do NOT need Beck to tell me this. It's kind of blatant.)

Hey Glenn, how is "family life" working out for the Govt-enslaved minorities in places like Chicago, Detroit, DC?

Did black slaves have families? Well, the answer is surely not as absolute as Mr. Beck says. There were masters who were inhumane to their slaves. I’m certain some of them intentionally broke up families and treated their slaves like animals. There were other masters who treated their slaves well. Some actually encouraged their slaves to marry and raise families as that created a more content slave.

First of all, I realized a long time ago that I’d have to be unhinged to continue to listen to Beck.

Last night I was watching a Civil War documentary and following the emancipation proclamation Sherman said Blacks should be freed but not equal.

Third, I have a relative who fought for Civil Rights for more than 50 years. He spent his entire career trying to help blacks. I asked him what the solution is for the problem blacks face today. I was shocked when he said “Segregation”.

Fourth, even racists have constitutional rights.

Take it all anyway you want it.
