Good morning, gentle people – Glenn Beck has been a Free Republic staple since forever, and there’s a constant and amusing feud between Freepers who think he’s a visionary. and Freepers who think he’s certifiable.
Let’s delve into this and have a look, whaddya say?
We’ll start with a little – Beck and forth!
Glenn Beck: ‘I’m out of the Republican Party — I am not a Republican’

Glenn Beck says he is no longer a member of the Republican Party.
“I’ve made my decision — I’m out,” Beck said on his radio show Wednesday, according to Mediaite.com. “I’m out of the Republican Party. I am not a Republican; I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out.”
The former Fox News host and founder of the Blaze supported the GOP during the last election cycle but has become disillusioned with the party in recent years over what he believes was its failure to stand up to the Obama administration — specifically, the Affordable Care Act and immigration reform.
“Four years ago I was with them,” Beck said. “Four years ago I said, ‘Work from the inside, let’s change it, let’s get new guys in there.’”
But those efforts have proved futile, he said.
Hmm – maybe the Beck fans have all been banned? I had to scroll down 60 posts before I found this:

Beck was way ahead of his time regarding the internal Marxist/socialist threats to America, esp. the Obama crowd.
He did more with his blackboards to expose the interlocking Soros/Communist Party USA/Democratic Socialists of America subversion than any other conservative on TV or radio.
He did his homework and put into illustrations the “Who” and “What” of this Marxist subversive network that reached directly into the White House (Anita Dunn, Vann Jones, David Axelrod, Quentin Young, Bill Ayers, etc).
Let’s give him credit for doing this when no one else was interested in it or was doing much about it.
As for his wanderings, that’s a personal issue of his. Agreed with his stances or not, he’s still a good person who has awakened our nation to its’ internal threats, a sort of Cable TV “Paul Revere”.
Friends of mine had access to him, and he listened and learned. We ought him our thanks for sounding the warning calls in the early days of the Obama subversion when no one else was (with specific knowledge and organization).
Some of the Freeperati give Glenn grudging respect for being late to the party:

Time for Liberty Party—Glen beck can be the first to Join or do the Reform Party! If others join we can do something. The RINOs have shot themselves one too many times. Let them have their Jeb Bush—the Liberty Party can nominate Sarah Palin!

“Alex Jones is forever banned from FR. He’s a dipweed 9/11 conspiracy nutcase. These freaks make good money just making shit up for the gullible. Not surprised liberaltarians fall for any anti-American crap that comes down the line.
Those who don’t like my position on this are welcome to post elsewhere.”

Glenn Beck: Ben Carson’s Prison Sex Comment ‘The Dumbest Thing I’ve Ever Heard’

According to Glenn Beck, possible GOP candidate Dr. Ben Carson‘s comments about homosexuality being a choice is one of the dumbest things the radio host has ever heard …
“Goodbye to his presidential career,” Beck said Friday on his radio show. “It’s over. It’s over. There is no way to recover from that. That just sounds like a lunatic… That is just a ridiculous statement on a million fronts. A ridiculous statement.” …To: EveningStar
Considering that Ben Carson already repudiated his own words on this its hardly news.
Obviously Carson is not ready for anything like this.
But why would he be?
Truth is not dumb. If you’ve been sexually abused in prison, you will not come out and relate to women as if nothing has happened. If you can break a man completely, they usually don’t recover.
It may or may not be the dumbest thing ever said. But when are Conservatives or Republicans for that matter going to get their collective heads out of the sand and figure out a simple and effective way to get out of these gotcha questions regarding gays, abortion and the “war on women.” A simple response like this although it might sound like a way to slide out of answering the question and might face some fire from Conservatives is to simply say I don’t have an answer to that. Or in the case with Abortion or contraception is “I’m pro life, but that decision under our current laws is up to the women and the best I can do is encourage her to allow the child to be adopted.” Or in regards to contraception just plain out call it a gotcha type question and adding it’s not a federal concern and not on my radar as we have bigger fish to fry in the way of the economy, foreign threats, etc.
I swear sometimes people on our side make the simple things so complex and just invite crap like this and then it becomes a constant thing to have to defend or respond too. On top of nominating pure idiots like Todd Akin.
