Glenn Beck Hates Republicans
NEWSMAX.COM ^

Posted on 06/30/2011 9:52:59 PM PDT by freejohn

Glenn Beck is making it clear that he’s no partisan — he hates Republicans as much as he does Democrats, if not more.

In a tease for his new Web TV venture, GBTV, Beck said he dislikes members of the GOP immensely, according to Politico.

“I hate them. I think they are as much of a problem as the other side," Beck says in a new interview released just before his last show on Fox News.

Pretty sure the Republicans Glenn dislikes are the check pants wearing RINOs.

He probably hates a lot of them for becoming monsters once they get entrenched into “non-culture culture” that is life in Washington DC.

What is this about Web TV and a new venture. They do not even make Web TV units anymore.

Glenn Beck is straight up just copying Alex Jones’ gimmick...right down to an online launch. And NOW he is even going to go for the angle that the GOP/Dems are just the kabuki actors to amuse the masses while the real stuff happens?

Too many GOP’s are not willing to venture out their comfort zone.. They don’t want to attract the wrong kind of media attention. The media may already know where the bodies are buried. No bodies buried? The media may be willing to provide some free of charge.

Well Glenn Back is Alex Jones if Alex Jones decided to land his spaceship on planet earth and then burned his spaceship down and stayed grounded.

I finally got disgusted with the “R” party and became an “I” right after McCain was nominated. I didn’t want to be associated with a party that would actually put such a liberal loser up as their nominee. Haven’t seen any reason or point to go back yet. The primaries are no reason at all, since the Repug nominee is already a done deal by the time the primary process gets around to my pathetic state. It’s really all about which party (if any) I want to be seen as being associated with. Repugs are going to have to get a lot more consistently conservative, grow a backbone & toss out more CINOs before I ever go back.

and how much did you learn in the past two years from any one else in the MSM? Believe him or not did you read / research any little anything he spoke about?? He gave you a chance..I took it...hopefully you will too. Nothing to lose...but I may gain (or not but better to be on the safe side)

The illiterate drug addicted Beck hates conservatism most of all. His support of a Value Added Tax and trashing of McCain's conservative opponent makes that clear.

I hate every single Senate Republican that didn’t remove Bill Clinton when they had the chance, and that’s just for starters. The msg needed to be sent to the White House clearly that you can’t practice lawlessness in the people’s house and expect to just move on. Clinton lied under oath, and that alone was enough for me. They should have at least stood up for the rule of law even if they couldn’t remove him. But no, they were too chicken-chit of public opinion to stand up for the rest of the people.

I haven’t had a dimes worth of respect for any of them since then.

A party that gives you false hope they will solve a problem if only you give them a chance and then does not solve the problem is a big problem.

I see Orin Hatch on the news and I think to myself, this guy has been saying the same lines for at least 20 years. The budget deficit has soared, he has been in Congress (and a leader of Congress) when his part was in power more than once, and here he is telling us its all the Dems fault.

Just how much are we supposed to fall for while waving Go GOP pom poms. My arms got tired a few years back.

Isn't politico the one that put out a big lie about someone else saying something that wasn't true? I can't remember exactly what or who, but I remember something.

The day that they refused to remove him was the day that the left become emboldened in this country.

The mixed blessing is that we did not get Al Gore. Al can blame not having the most powerful position in the world on two fronts..

The first is himself, for not standing up for Bubba’s potential impeachment which would have given him the position.

The second is his home state. He can blame Florida all he wants, but God bless the good people of Tennessee.

Beck has done more to expose the marxists in American culture, academia, business, and politics/White House/Congress than any other TV personality (Hannity and Limbaugh and Michelle Malkin come in close seconds but without the blackboards/diagrams).

He has opened the whole can of worms on ACORN, Apollo Alliance, Weathermen, Obama’s chicago reds, Soros and his red octopus operations, the Democratic Socialists of America, the corrupt and often red labor unions (esp. AFL-CIO), etc.

Give the man his due. He did what no one else did, expose the hidden enemies of America to millions of people who didn’t read this stuff in the newspapers or from MSM TV.

In the future, this contribution of his (and his researchers) should win some kind of “freedom award”.

I’ve been in this business for over 40 years, and feel that Beck will be remembered as one of America’s unsung heroes.

Another fellow in this same class is Trevor Loudon of New Zeland, as well as Cliff Kincaid of USAsurvival.org and Accuracy in Media.

I'm from the generation that associates the name Beck with a guitarist for the Yardbirds. ...and then later forming a band with Rod Stewart and Ron Wood.

Beck lost his gig and now has to grow an audience.

Smart move calling out the Dems and the GOP, but the “hate” quote is extreme, unnecessary, and over the top. Is Glen back on the powder? His TV show was unwatchable at the end. The chalkboard stuff reminded me of Mr. Peabody.

He doesn't correct his own flubs either. He still insists that Khomeini "banned Twelvers" in Iran (even though Khomeini was a Twelver himself); and just during this last show, he said that Jack Paar "started the Tonight Show" . . . say, what was that show that Steve Allen did from '54 to '57? and who was Sylvester L. Weaver, Junior?

He is right.

They are just two branches of the BIG GOVERNMENT PARTY

It wasn’t only the votes of democrats in congress and the senate that caused the country to end up as a nearly bankrupt socialist welfare state, being crushed by thousands and thousands of freedom sapping Nanny State laws.

Establishment republicans hate the reform minded Tea Party more than they hate democrats.

He likes both Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin.

Last time I checked they were Republicans.

I think he likes Rick Perry but I’m not sure...maybe it’s more that he likes Texas.

Beck paints Republicans with the same broad brush he paints Democrats and I disagree with that. When he criticizes President Bush in the same breath as Obama, I turn him off. There is no doubt there are too many RINOs in Congress and the last election changed some of that.
Beck is a hypocrite to “hate” Republicans and plays that card to be perceived as unbiased. But, if it were not for the few real Republicans in Congress, why are democrats having a hard time passing all of their progressive agenda - Cap and Trade for example? I’ve subscribed to his GBTV for a month but if it turns out to be an “I hate all” event, I’m outta there.

So how’s your coffee this morning, Mr. Knowitall? Geez, you must have been a real gem when you were a teenager, or is it that you are still one?

I for one did not watch Beck to be entertained. There is plenty of “Entertainment” on the other billions of channels on SAT or cable for that time slot.

Time for a little homework kiddies!

Khomeini was the Ayatolla that led the 1979 revolution who was not a twelver.

Khamenei is the current Ayatolla who is a twelver.

Now do you feel a little smarter now that you know the rest of the story?
