Glenn Beck

Posted on 01/29/2012 6:35:42 AM PST by MSGT1

Why is Glenn Beck lying to destroy Newt?? Glenn has voiced support for Santorum while his actions are pushing Mitt. On his propaganda page the blaze in one day he had 14 hit pieces on Newt, 9 puff pieces on Mitt and 2 stories mentioning Santorum {one of those could be considered negative}. The amount of dishonesty in those articles and his radio show is mind boggling. Glenn is abusing the trust people have placed in him and trying to get the most liberal candidate the nomination.

Newt was surging in Iowa so Glenn went scorched earth and by catching people by surprise, they fell back on their trust for Beck and gave Iowa to Santorum. By the time South Carolina rolled around people were seeing through Beck and Newt won. Going into Fl. Newt pulling ahead and Beck having used up his trust the baton was passed to Drudge and down goes Newt again.

Now why would Glenn do that?? Could it be as simple as this?? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Horse_Prophecy

Breitbart was right and we could have saved a lot of grief had we listened to him. Glenn Beck hasn't been telling us what he was for but outright lying and attacking Newt and anyone that backs Newt. Beck is willing to destroy the election process using Alinsky tactics to get Mittens in. We have been had.

My goal isn't to flame but to cause thought. I know Beck has fans and I know he has FOLLOWERS. Followers can't be reasoned with. Man has a need for God and many times and for many reasons people try to deify other men. I suggest they draw closer to the real God.

I can lead you to knowledge but I can't make you think. I hope you take this and carefully consider this post. Accept it or dismiss it, it's cool. I expect some of you will not and will lash out. Let the games begin..

You’re fooling yourself if you think it won’t come up in hit pieces in the general election.

Oh, is it EVER going to come up in the general! From the left, certainly, but the antics of the Romney/GOP-e cabal will probably make for a two-front problem for the LDS. Anything from the right will likely be too cartoonish and therefore tut-tutted about in the MSM, but the left will no doubt manage to do damage and still keep their hands clean.

As for Glenn Beck himself, I have stopped listening to him just because I now - rightly or wrongly - perceive a "mean streak" in him (and Pat Gray) that is off-putting. He is not always wrong, but he is increasingly erratic, and at least as Mitt and Newt are concerned, increasingly disingenuous.

Actually, voicing support for Santorum is a push for Romney when one considers Santorum siphons votes from Newt.

I gave Glenn another chance this week, and tunred him on. Ten minutes after calling Newt a liar Beck said Gingrich “was removed from the House for ethics violations.” Tata, Glenn.

Yes, what he has DONE indeed. And if Beck were really interested in true history - he would present a balanced picture of Newt showing that which is undeniably good along with that which was disturbing.

To even imply that Newt’s successes and failures rise and fall upon the whims of Glenn Beck is silly.

Glenn is an American like the rest of us. He can endorse which ever candidate he pleases. However, I don’t think you are a regular listener to Glenn. He pulverized Romney last week and said many many positive things about Newt.

Glenn worked in Pennsylvania for many years and is good friends with Santorum.

Reagan was Wilsonian and so is Beck. Look up the word.

Newt said many times that FDR was the greatest POTUS of the 20th century based on his ability to self govern and get things done. Beck always cuts off that last part.

Andrew Jackson was a ridiculous topic Beck tried to bring up.

I just heard about this a few days ago.

There are George Soros funded operations out there paying people to infiltrate sites like FreeRepublic to rake the muck.

In fact, I think I heard about it on Glenn Beck's show. Which makes sense why his first post would be to stir up anti-Beck sentiment.

He's a seminar FReeper. Everyone keep your eyes peeled. Where's there's one, there's usually a lot more.

I am sure it [Romney's Mormon religion] will matter but it is sad that it does.

Why is it sad? Romney is devout...ergo his faith informs his character, his behavior, and his decisions.

It would be irresponsible, even stupid, not to investigate and understand what his religion is.

Hell I don’t like Gingrich or Romney and I’ve felt that way since before I ever heard of Beck.

As far as Beck is concerned, I know he’s a real stickler for telling people to do their own research and not take his word for it. The left on the other hand, simply calls all opposition “Liars” and tries to discourage anyone from hearing them.

Up to about a year ago I found Beck very entertaining. Then gradually it started sounding a little canned, like intellectual spam. Beckery was becoming Beckism. It was like at any moment he’d announce there were levels of mastery and I’d be assigned a station with a number value...and have to buy a package of materials if I wanted to continue my progress.
So I bailed.
I don’t know jack about Mormons and don’t care to. That said, his political views may well have everything to do with Mormonism.

I’m not crazy about either Newt or Romney. Both are seriously flawed, but what Glenn is saying about Newt can’t be disputed. Glenn is using Newt’s own words. Even the majority on FR who seem now to have a man-crush on Newt can’t hide the fact they could not stand the guy last spring when he threw his hat in. Remember the Newt/Pelosi couch photo on every Newt thread? What happened to those? We on FR in the spring of 2011 when Newt was in the single digits were pretty much saying the same thing Beck is today. Beck has remained steadfast on his feelings for Newt, it is we that have changed.

The one thing I think we all can agree on is that in this “most important election in our life time”, is that the A-Team decided not to run. Varsity is sitting in the stadium. The biggest sacrifice our favorite conservatives are making is to go on record with an endorsement. And if that endorsement is not for Newt, then we throw them under the bus.

We all have changed based on the circumstances. Beck is taking Newt’s words out of context and Beck didn’t go psycho until Newt surged in the polls for Iowa.

Glenn can hit Newt on what he’s doing now with the class warfare but he needs to stop lying

“I listen to Glenn’s show everyday on the radio. He has excoriated Romney many times. To say he is endorsing Romney is nuts.”

I've posted those same words here on other anti-Glenn threads. And the replies I get is “he is only pretending to hate Romney, so we don't think that he actually supports Romney”. Something seriously flawed with that logic.

Don't know anybody from Free Conservatives. I trust these people.

We don't agree on everything but one thing we do agree on is examples.

You have yet to give one example of a lie Beck has told about Gingrich.

The closest you've come is the ethics violation thing.

Newt can explain that away himself and win many converts in the process. He was forced out by a bunch of spineless Republicans.

He should take a lesson from Sarah Palin and paint himself as taking on the good old boys network.

You can't pin that entirely on Beck.

As for the Andrew Jackson thing. Beck didn't bring it up. Newt did. The "enemy" Jackson was referring to was most likely the Indians of Florida who Jackson forcibly removed from their land in what became known as The Trail Of Tears.

Newt can win this one, too, if he explains which enemies Jackson was so fond of killing if it wasn't those Indians.

But to point out that part of Jackson's Presidency is not a "lie". Perhaps there is some context involved. It's up to Newt to provide it.

He brung it up.

I will say this for Beck, as annoying as he is, he has done tons for the cause of Conservatism over the years. Yes, he was a drunk. Maybe he did drugs while Newt orchestrating the Reagan Revolution.

But while Newt was sitting on the couch with Nanzi Pelosi preparing to stick it to us with Global Warming legislation, Beck was out there taking the flaming arrows from Geoge Soros and his America hating minions.

Even getting himself thrown off of FOX because they didn't like his let-the-chips-fall-where-they-may attitude.

So, the theory is Beck is trying to bring on the fulfillment of the White Horse Prophecy? From the link you posted:

"You will see the Constitution of the United States almost destroyed. It will hang like a thread as fine as a silk fiber.... I love the Constitution; it was made by the inspiration of God; and it will be preserved and saved by the efforts of the White Horse, and by the Red Horse[9] who will combine in its defense."

Who is the White Horse?

The Mormons "will go to the Rocky Mountains and will be a great and mighty people established there, which I will call the White Horse of peace and safety." It doesn't sound like the White Horse is a single person, but rather all Mormons.

Beck, himself, did a decent job educating his audience about Constitutional issues while he had his Fox program and there are plenty of things happening right now that show various efforts to cut that barely a thread our Constitution is hanging by.

Perhaps Beck's moment, before he went over the edge, was to briefly ride that White Horse like Paul Revere to awaken Americans to what is taking place, contributing to the rise of the Tea Party? The sleeping giant (Red states = the "Red Horse"?) is waking up.

Besides, does Mitt Romney sound like someone who'd ride to the Constitution's rescue? He seems more like someone holding the knife and sawing away at the thread.

Actually Beck often tells his listeners...

Beck, and I’ve heard his show lately and turn it off, is wrong on this one. For all his anti-progressive rhetoric his actions speak louder than his words.

Savy ...Beck listeners I think realize this. Santorum is a hanger on...Beck’s eggs are all in one basket.

And what is the first thing my eyes behold? A lying lie told by that lying liar fat drunk pothead pig Glenn Beck!

Thank you for setting me straight.

You have my eternal gratitude.

The nerve of Glenn Beck. Trying to make us believe that Herman Cain endorsed Newt Gingrich.

I listen to Beck every day and am a subscriber to GBTV. I agree with you on his feelings for Romney. He used the words, “Romney would be a disaster”. Does that sound like someone supporting Romney? If there is one candidate he seems to support it's Santorum.

Both Newt and Romney are seriously flawed candidates, but it looks like that is what we are going to be stuck with. We need to stop throwing each other under the bus because we prefer one over the other. The primary will soon be over with and we need to be on the same team again or we will have four more years of Obama. The least we can do is hope for one helluva VEEP.

I’m definitely not for Romney, but the obsession over Gingrich on this site is disturbing to me. Gingrich betrayed conservatives many many times in the past (DeDe Scozzafava, anyone?), and IMO, I don’t think he has changed one bit.

That said, I would definitely want him over Romney, but right now, I’m sticking with Santorum until if and when he decides to stop.
