Why Won't Glenn Beck Praise Newt for "Invented Palestine" comments in favor of Israel?
12/15/2011 | Ralph Mitchell

Posted on 12/14/2011 10:38:21 PM PST by mitchell001

Beck is making a fool of himself going hard against Newt, with no on-air rebuttals on GBTV.com or Beck Radio allowed. His credibility is now severely damaged. Also, notice that Beck did not mention or emphasize Newt's defense of Israel, via Newt's true statement that "Palestinian" is an invented term for the Arab people in the Middle East. Can someone get a question to Beck on Newt's loyalty to Israel, which is important to Beck?

Beck is suffering from “Michael Jackson Syndrome.”

All the people who surround him are afraid to tell him he is acting like an idiot.

Because Beck wants his little Mormon Messiah to win to fit his end of world fantasy

Newt's loyalty to Israel is real, the question is, is Beck's?

Does anyone actually listen to what he said? So many posts; so much disinformation. Listen to his monologue before running off half-cocked. I don’t know that he responded to the Palestinian remark by Gingrich, but his research into Gingrich’s statements on Roosevelt and FDR are accurate, and in fact do indicate real concerns. Why not look at them squarely?

"Can someone get a question to Beck on Newt's loyalty to Israel, which is important to Beck? "

Apparently, his loyalty to Israel is superceded by his loyalty to Mitt. Those Jews and Catholics are Gentiles to GB.

He’s his own boss now, running his own show. I’m afraid there’s no one keeping him grounded anymore.

I usually liked him but I’m afraid he’s veering into Howard Beale territory now.

Yep.

While I do like much of what Beck has been doing to expose Soros, Van Jones, ACORN, and many other leftist conspiritorial activities, at the end of the day he is a Moron, er, I mean Mormon. A tribal, UFO Cult worshipping, Mormon. As is Mittens Romney. Them Morons gots to stick together.

Nuff said.

Correction, Beck is suffering from Michael Savage syndrome. Beck jumped the shark a long time ago. Now it’s out there for all to see. He’s been nothing but a glommer on, welcome to the bandwagon when we’ve been here all along saying he’s a fool. I took crap from all you beck supporters when I said, wait, look at his guy. But no, you drank his kool-aid.

Sadly, the longer he is in Mormonism the more the Mormon mentality will take over. We have already seen his phrasing change and more and more of his Mormon beliefs slip in. I am pretty sure this is what is happening, cognitive disconnect can drive you crazy.

I've never heard him praise Mittens to any extent on his radio show. As a matter of fact, he slams him regularly. He has said very recently that he would vote Ron Paul 3rd party though.

This is becoming a mess of gargantuan proportions...just give the damn Democrat the next four years...I see nobody who can go up against him and win. For all of you Gingrichers who think he is the next "white hope" in the debates - get real - the only thing Obama knows how to do is campaign and debate...he will CRUSH Newt in any debate.

For the two and a half years he was on Fox, Beck spent hundreds upon hundred of hours railing against two American political figures above all others: Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt — with Theodore Roosevelt getting an honorable mention as the man who poisoned the Republican Party with the progressive cancer and started us on the road to one-party tyranny.

Newt Gingrich considers himself a Teddy Roosevelt Republican and a “Wilsonian realpolitik”. He also refers to FDR as the greatest American President of the 20th Century often and without hesitation.

So basically, Newt models himself after the three men Beck has consistently cited as the most evil men to hold the office of the presidency in the 20th Century. The only people who could possibly be surprised at Beck’s reaction to Gingrich’s ascendancy are people who weren’t actually listening to what Glenn Beck has been saying all this time.

As far as the Mormon stuff goes, Beck is not supporting Romney, nor has he given Huntsman (whose father he adores) the time of day. He believes Bachmann and Santorum are the two strongest conservatives in the field.

He said if Gingrich got the nomination, he might have to consider Paul if he were running third-party. He then walked it back a bit and said how dangerous Paul was, how horribly wrong he was on Israel and the Middle East and how Paul's foreign policy would end up getting us all killed. He concluded with (and I'm paraphrasing) "If it comes down to those choices, I'll be on my knees praying... because I won't know what to do".

Not exactly an enthusiastic endorsement of Ron Paul. It was more of an emphatic anti-Gingrich statement.

“I unsubscribed from his GBTV this AM. I’m a Perry person and not a fan of Newt — but Beck’s mention of third party/Paul turned me off. That is the last thing we need in 2012.”

I purchased a whole year of his GBTV thinking it was going to be a good deal. I love history. I love old tv shows. The thought of there being a new source for news made me optimistic.

I canceled my subscription just over a month ago when the creep started bashing Perry for no particular reason. All he talked about was how happy he was to be moving to Texas and he bashes my governor? About the vaccine which Perry never forced on anyone. About immigration. He appeared to be promoting Romney which doesn’t bother me but he seemed to be intentionally divisive. Flexing muscle. Talk seemed to be encouraging a third party. I now think he’s nuts. When I canceled, I was not allowed a refund. They just said they wouldn’t bill me next year. That’s okay. I don’t listen to him on the radio anymore either. I sleep better not being constantly reminded about gold I can’t buy. I also don’t worry about buying survival food for my neighbors. I have to admit that I listen to all talk radio less and less each day. Between freedom concerts and blueberry tea, gold and pet shelters, books books books, I figure I can filter my own news on FR and be better informed.

It would be nice to read some truthful comments about Glenn Beck and his Newt Gingrich comments instead of these smears and lies.

Beck said he would vote for Bachmann.

I admit it may help Romney but not if all the conservatives would choose to unite their votes behind her.

Then she would beat Romney and Newt.

I share some of Beck’s concern when it comes to Newt.

Ask yourself this. If we give him the Whitehouse, will we get the old progressive liberal Newt, or the new one that has been telling conservatives what they want to hear.

If we get the new Newt...GREAT!

If we get the old Newt, America is done.

That to me is one Hell of a gamble and I wouldn’t be so quick to chastise Glenn Beck, the man is right more often then not.

I think people are desperate to get Obama out of office and on the surface Newt with his smooth talk and poll ratings, at the moment, look good. I subscribe to GBTV and I believe in listening to what a person has to say before I go off half cocked disparaging them. What Glenn says about Newt makes perfect sense. He had John Ziegler on his show and he has a website about Newt. I have only had time to scan it but some of you may be interested. I think this election is TOO important to elect someone just because they articulate well. Isn't that what we have now? Here's the website:

At last someone who is listening! There seems to be a lot of Beck bashing here lately. A little too much if you know what I mean. Beck has hit a nerve and the ‘bots are out to destroy his message just like they have other voices speaking the truth. The Progressives aren’t going down easy. We must keep up the good work to end their disastrous movement once and for all. While I have tended to like Newt, he is in fact a big government Progressive.

If we think we ‘win’ by putting another Progressive in there then we are fools that deserve what we get. If, on the other hand, we believe in our conservative principles we will not put our hopes on a Progressive. Remember: no one has cast a vote yet. We are basically relying on polls from the same people who told us Obama’s poop didn’t stink. I don’t buy it for a minute. Beck is right.

I will vote for Bachmann or Santorum in the primary.

Beck, like Michael Savage, may sound crazy and oft times self-serving, but from a perspective of an ordinary citizen, I find much of what he says, as with Michael Savage, to ring true.

Personally, I don’t really care to listen to either one’s radio show because most of their message gets lost in their loud sermonizing. I’d rather listen to the sarcastic wit of Rush or read opinions of wisdom from Sowell.

I doubt it. Obama knows how to campaign - no argument there - but debate? I’m thinking not so much. The MSM promotes him as a great speaker but he is not. He can read words from a telepromter but where’s the evidence he can think on his feet? OTOH, Newt is sharp and knowledgable. I’m just saying...

Writer of this article and a lot of posters on this and other threads clearly do NOT actually listen to Beck’s show:
Beck clearly has given his support openly and often to BACHMAN AND SANTORUM!
Beck has said that he does acknowledge that Gingrich supports Israel but he doesn’t like his “Progessive” ideas and Gingrich has praised Andy Stern of SEIU...etc.

All these Beck bashers should actually listen to his show before jumping to conclusions based on misleading headlines.

I see a lot of talk here about how Beck is a Bachmann supporter, yet only a couple of very foggy statements can actually be cited.
Instead, he spends all of his time bashing other candidates. He is being destructive to the process rather than contributing information on why his chosen candidate is better.
I believe it is a out Beck believing that he is now so big and powerful, that he can literally destroy someone.
I don’t believe Beck is the humble guy he plays on TV.
