Skip to comments.Andrew Breitbart Goes Off On ‘Coward’ Glenn Beck: ‘He Is Dead To Me’
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 didnt 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 hes 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 dont know what to say because I know it makes me look like a bad guy and I know Reagans 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 youre sitting there watching him talk about the food shortage stuff, he doesnt tell you this ties to the Mormon Church. He doesnt talk to you about his investors. He doesnt tell you that theyre paying for him to create a crisis. He always talks about Cloward-Piven and how Rahm Emanuel said Dont let a good crisis go to waste, but creating a hysteria that theres 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. Hes 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 hes been taking peoples content for years and not crediting it.
At the end of the interview, the podcasts 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.
You've been around FR longer than I have. IMHO, this really doesn't seem much difference than the lead up to the 2000, 2004 and 2008 primaries, albeit the stakes seem a little higher each cycle...
Remember the Buchanan Brigades from 2000?!?!
Perhaps. But you sure do see a lot of maniacal condemnation of people the posting perp probably agrees with on 90% of issues.
Take the current item in question. donna is terrified that there is some sort of unpunished sodomy going on somewhere. So she actually believes and asserts that a guy like Breitbart is no conservative because he isn't quite as obsessed with the issue as she is, so unconcerned that he actually courts the political support of the sodomy practitioners on fiscal issues.
Because practitioners of gay sex don't repulse Breitbart to the point that he doesn't want their support in electing small government types, he is no conservative in donna's blinder-covered eyes. He's just one of them goddamn libertines and can go burn in hell with his perverted pals. Never mind everything he's done to balance the left/right media equation.
There seems to be a large contingent of donnas around here lately.
LOL ... you're psychic! But, it's that time of year, I'm planning and sewing like mad, and between that and many Holiday events here, it's so crazy. Must admit I'm mostly enjoying the decompression from the depressing news out there.
Happy Christmas preps to you and yours and all our dear crew. Hugs, love to you and miss you, too! I know the time will fly, and before we know it ............. you know what ... ;) Keep praying .. and praying, everyone please.
You are so tiresome.
Calling me names doesn’t make Andrew Breitbart a smarter person. Any idiot who gets involve with the homosexual lobby is ignorant of human nature and headed for failure. Now he’s so surprised that trouble happened.
So, to cover up for his foolishness, he attacks Beck.
What a sucker you are.
I see you put Scoogy Doo cartoon here ROFL eh Monk
I do. It’s wishful thinking I guess.
Im waiting for you to point out the falsehood in the statement.
Beck has soured. I can’t reconcile what I’ve come to like about him with the BS he’s been vomiting the last few days. I predict thatof his audience will desert him within 2 weeks.
If you take time to get facts before posting, it would help the discourse. Google it...he is supporting Bachmann. He reiterated that more than once since Thanksgiving.
With all due respect to your seniority, an improved economy would be nice but will do very little to correct the problems we have of long term government debt at the federal level. Meeting these obligations would require the feds to run a surplus of one trillion a year for the next twenty years in today’s dollars. Tax revenues are expected to be flat regardless of rates imposed, so the fed has to cut spending from $3.5 Trillion per year to one trillion dollars per year. Not even Paul is talking about that.
Furthermore, a spending cut that size would contract the economy.
Tax revenues stay around 18% of GDP. To grow our way out of this would require doubling the size of the real economy while freezing spending, neither of which will happen regardless of how many illegals come to work.
I have bought a farm in very southern, very rural Georgia, and can hit targets fairly consistently a half mile away. As for leaving FR, I’m here ‘till Admin tosses me off.
Sorry to be a downer. I know I’m a NOOB, but I recommend you remove your rose colored glasses, put on your reading glasses and peruse ENDGAME by Mauldin and/or The Collapse of Complex Societies by Tainter. Endgame is shorter and less tedious.
