Glen!!!!! You dumbass! That’s not how you do it! Especially with Tea Party types!
So, Beck, apparently, imploded today, over Donald Trump. The sad thing is, I mostly agree with his assessment of Trump. And, I’ve told my readers this. Many, if not most have disagreed with me. Obviously, my first reaction should have been to call them racists ……….
On Tuesday, talk radio host Glenn Beck accused the Tea Party supporters of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump of being racists.
While he questioned whether Trump’s supporters are genuine Tea Partiers, Beck said of them, “If you were a Tea Party person, then you were lying. You were lying. It was about Barack Obama being black. It was about him being a Democrat.” Although he later identified fellow talk show host Sean Hannity as a Tea Party supporter who thinks Trump is “a great guy,” Beck said that he simply disagrees with Hannity about Trump.
Beck’s comments came as part of a discussion of Trump’s rally in Texas yesterday before a sold-out crowd of 20,000. Beck stated, “The media’s making this look like [Trump’s supporters are] Tea Party people. I don’t think these are Tea Party people who are following him. Some of them may be, but I think these — I mean, you can’t — if you were a Tea Party person, then you were lying. You were lying. It was about Barack Obama being black. It was about him being a Democrat, because this guy is offering you many of the same things, as shallow as the same way. If you said to me that it bothered you about his past, you said to me, ‘Hey, what about his relationship with Jeremiah Wright? What about what he’s done here, here, and here?’ You’re not bothered by this guy, and it’s exactly the same thing.”
Later, after discussing reports of The Blaze being left off the list of media outlets given passes for Trump’s rally in Dallas (although they were eventually allowed in), Beck said, “People will not even say that’s concerning. His supporters will not even say that’s concerning.” Beck noted that Trump makes him, rather than a booker, cold call Trump to get an interview with him, something which Beck says he refuses to do. Beck added, “I’ve seen this movie before. This is exactly what Barack Obama does.”
Beck also stated, “Well, we can’t figure out, there’s a lot of people that we know, that we just cannot figure out. They say they were for the Tea Party, I mean, you know, I’ve had an open conversation with Sean Hannity. He is — he swears he’s a great guy, and everything else. I just disagree with him, on that. Sarah Palin is another one, who had him on the show, and just fell all over him, and just loves him. I don’t understand that.”
Beck said that he did understand why people who didn’t want a politician were supporting Dr. Ben Carson.
“I cannot understand the Trump thing, and it scares the hell out of me,” Beck added. “If there’s anybody who would like the Greek columns, and the gold and the glitter, it’ll be Donald Trump.” He continued that Trump saying his name may be on the wall between the US and Mexico is “what a dictator says. I mean, remember, it was Leningrad, and then it was Stalingrad. That’s what dictators do. That’s what dictators do. And we are — if it’s not him, it will be someone else, that steps into that role, if we don’t stop this right now.”
He concluded, “This guy is just a TV star. That’s what’s happening. He’s a TV star, and people just want to win, and they’ll take anyone.”
There’s also another piece from Hot Air on this.
Well, as to Beck, he’s done. Who is he talking to? Establishment Repubs? He just insulted every other one of his listeners.
This saddens me because I remember when he was a voice of elucidation. Now …… he doesn’t understand that he needs to stop shooting himself in the foot.
But, this is what happens when a megalomaniac is confronted with another megalomaniac. And, it’s weird. It’s like this is the first election Beck has ever been through. Over the last two election cycles, how many Repubs have been the poll leader at one time or another? Ben Carson has almost pulled even with Trump in the polls. Fiornina is gaining. Come next summer, I’ll take even money against any one of them being at the top of the polls. It doesn’t work that way! As I stated earlier, it’s a long distance race, not a sprint. Now, that being stated, Trump has a unique advantage in that his campaign funds would be nearly inexhaustible. He’s a multi-billionaire. Most will drop out when they can’t fund their “supporters” any longer. Perry is a great example of this. But, after a while, others will simply drop out because of the physical taxation, all the while either dropping or failing to gain in the polls.
The thing about Trump is that he’s high energy and deep pockets. He’s not going anywhere. But, he’s not going to win, either. Eventually, Trump has to state something other than the desire to close our borders.
But, rather than focus on that, Beck devolves into the same thing Trump does. Beck essentially attacks Trump by calling him names and his supporters’ names, rather than discuss the ideas. Beck does that because he’s against closing the borders ….. all the while, he can’t properly articulate why he’s against it. So ……… RACIST!!!!!! Beck’s engaging in exactly the same dialogue as the leftards are, which isn’t so much a dialogue as it is simply an attempt to end a discussion as to why we should or should not have open borders.
It isn’t that I don’t care about other nations or other people. I believe my blog clearly demonstrates that I do care, through the near countless posts I write about other nations and people. But, it is that I’m an American. This is my home, these are my people. It is only right and proper that I put my home and my people’s interests above all others. This is the honest patriotism which is required of all honest citizenry. Anyone who cannot put their nation, their people first, should be expelled from that nation, always, and forever. At least, Trump seems to understand this notion. Beck seems unfamiliar with it.
As stated several times before, I’ve never really been a member of any TEA party group. But, I support many of their efforts, and have loved ones who are and/or have been. I’ve many friends who currently support Trump. It is simply unacceptable that Beck calls my friends, my loved ones, my fellow countrymen racist simply because they support Trumps advocacy. I know they are not. They would not be my friends if they were.
Beck, please do something else. You’re done here. Continue down this road and you’ll turn into a Brock … if you’re not already there.
