Posted on 09/21/2015 1:24:08 PM PDT by HomerBohn
Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck has had it up to here with Donald Trump, even going as far as to accuse his supporters of latent racism. Beck, who hasnt been shy in his opposition to the Republican frontrunner, said Tuesday that any Tea Partiers who jumped on the Trump bandwagon were probably not genuine in their beliefs.
The medias making this look like Tea Party people, Beck said, noting the press coverage of Trumps enormous rally in Dallas. I dont think these are Tea Party people who are following him. Some of them may be, but 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.
Beck said he didnt understand what his friends Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin were thinking when they defended Trump.
He concluded by saying, This guy is just a TV star. Thats whats happening. Hes a TV star, and people just want to win, and theyll take anyone.
Though his remarks on the integrity of Tea Partiers who support Trump are offensive and ignorant, Beck is closer to home on this final analysis. It might be a stretch to say that Republicans will take anyone, but its definitely true that the Tea Party is ready for a win. A movement built out of outrage against the establishment must either grow or die. At some point, it gets tiresome to simply point out the same old things year after year. Ho hum, another Republican Congress fails to stand up to the Obama agenda. Ho hum, another boring establishment candidate loses to a failing president.
No one is fooled by Donald Trump. This guys on television around the clock, and you cant watch ten minutes of punditry without being reminded of his liberal positions through the years. Voters arent blind. They see what the deal is. But what are the alternatives? Jeb friggin Bush? The guy who sounds just like Obama on a number of important issues facing the country? Rubio, his padawan? Chris Christie? Come on.
Beck endorses Ben Carson for the conservative voter looking for an outsider, and thats all well and good. Carsons poll numbers speak for themselves, and he may overtake Trump as the primaries continue. Its not hard to imagine Carson who in his delivery is the anti-Trump siphoning votes from the brash frontrunner. Of course, that would be very difficult to imagine if Trumps voter base really was made up of racists who opposed Obama because he was black.
In veering down this strange path, Beck sounds more like a liberal than ever. Thats their job, pretending like every Tea Partier is a closet racist. He should be ashamed of himself for playing that game, even if he doesnt care to get on board the Trump Express.
Barry Soetoro Hussein is not qualified to be president and hates this country. Has he ever said he LOVES this country? Of course not.
Is Beck still around?
Beck is nothing more than a carnival barker.
Wow! Those are really fighting words.
Look Glenn many of us TP’ers aren’t blind idiots concerning Trump. We know his baggage but he’s right on many issues and gives the GOP the best option to win. So don’t call us racists Glenn— thats a moronic statement. Get a grip man.
Go, Trump, GO!!
And what are you, you imbalanced dipshit cultist?
Hell with Beck, he's overdue for rehab.
Beck has deteriorated, maybe if he gave chance to callers to debate subjects instead of bloviating with his yes sidekicks, he would be more on the ball.
In before crying Beck photo.
I’ve accused Trump supporters of being some things, but not racist. Calling someone a racists in 2015 is saying they basically have no worth; it’s to completely marginalize them. It’s what the left does, and Glenn Beck.
Glenn Beck is on a dry drunk, probably half the time. The man is definitely unstable, and in my opinion probably suicidal. I’ve listened to his show, like you, for short periods, maybe a few minutes, if he’s not hustering gold, food to store in case there’s a nuclear fallout, (Hey, Glenn, have you ever heard of bottled water and canned food?) When he’s actually talking, he’s chuckling with his nerdy cohosts, on some inside joke...then every now and then he goes totally bonkers... I mean screams at some person who calls in with an opinion different from his. I stopped listening when he had Newt on, calling him a progressive.
In short, the guy is dangerously ignorant and certainly does not speak for me.
Shut up Glen. You were easier to listen to when you were just trying to be funny.
Next you will be telling us you have a BIG announcement......next Tuesday.
I don’t think Donald Trump is a clown, an empty suit, or joking about becoming President. The more I see of his background as a young man the more I respect him. Really not crazy about his liberal record and not sure how many of those ideas have left him.
Beck has become a bobble-head and I don’t know about his beliefs any longer.
“Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck has had it up to here with Donald Trump, even going as far as to accuse his supporters of latent racism.”
That statement gives me an itch in my butt kickin’ foot.
Huckstering not hustering.
So THERE !!!
The way Beck has been acting in recent months, I’m wondering how long he can hold his media organization together financially. I doubt he’s gaining listeners and viewers.
Pretty much..spot on.
Beck needs to start taking his family for daily leisurely walks thru black and Latino hoods and found out who the real racists are
Of course, these white panderers never do. They love to camouflage their own biases by calling others out from the safety of their conservative neighborhoods
