Glenn Beck is not a conservative. He claims to be a “libertarian”, and is increasingly fawning over Ron Paul. Perhaps one of the best things to happen to the GOP is the beginning of a “blog war” between Little Green Footballs and Robert Stacy McCain. I don’t know exactly what Johnson’s politics are, other than the fact that he is going after specific “hate” sources the way I try to go after anti-immigration sources. I know how I’ve been treated and The Pink Flamingo is not important in the vast galaxy. LGF is.
Glenn Beck is starting a war he may not be able to complete. The “conservative” blogsphere is starting to fall apart, over Beck, Charles Johnson at LGF, and the apologists who constantly side with Robert Stacy McCain. Earlier today at LGF, Johnson said exactly what I’ve been saying, only The Pink Flamingo is not very important and Johnson is. I’m not worth attacking.
“…Don’t take my word for it that American Renaissance is an outright white supremacist hate site; here’s a Google cache link. Go ahead, investigate it for yourself and see the kinds of people with whom Robert Stacy McCain associates.
This is an ongoing disgrace, from which the right wing blogosphere may never recover.
I’ve made my position very clear — I won’t stand with racists and white supremacists, not now, not in the past, not ever. There’s a very bad craziness on the right, and I won’t have any part of it….”
I was skimming headlines. On Conservatives4Palin I noticed approval numbers for Obama and for Glenn Beck. When did we start taking approval numbers for a talk show host. Then, it dawned on me. Glenn Beck, demigod, is planning to run for POTUS in 2012.
Rick Moran must be thinking the same thing, and dismisses it.
“…And that brings us to Beck’s stagecraft, and as Riehl points out, his resemblance to the manipulative, darkly cynical personality of Larry Pines. The homespun, down to earth charm that was the public face of Pines masked a coldly calculating mind that sought to turn his radio celebrity into political power. I’m not saying that Beck wants to run for office. He’s too smart for that. But his stunts – and perhaps some of his more outrageous, exaggerated claims about Obama and the left – are extremely effective drama, worthy of anything any Communist propagandist ever dreamed of…”
Someone I know who had an almost unfailing tendency (she was wrong about GWB, thank God!)
The nasty little anti-Republican haters are starting to come out of the wood pile and behave like the nasty little purveyors of hate we’ve always known them to be. Glenn Beck is swinging on a star. The problem with that is when you become a shooting star, you turn into a meteor, crash and burn.
Glenn Beck is a man on a roll, riding too high. He and Barack Obama are, in many ways, the Bobbsey Twins. Neither one of them knows when to shut up and the meaning of the word “subtle”. Both are almost pathological narcissists. In many ways theirs is a symbiotic relationship. Can Barack Obama exist without Glenn Beck and can Glenn Beck exist without Barack Obama?
Mark Levin, no lover of John McCain thinks Beck is “pathetic”.
“…By his disgraceful defeat and unprincipled politics, John McCain has disgraced not only himself, but has imputed an ineradicable stain to his innocent kindred. (The first time I was introduced to Ann Coulter, her greeting was, “A most unfortunate name.”) And let’s not even bring his idiot daughter into this, OK? If the blonde-joke punchline can’t stop at three margaritas, that’s certainly not my fault….”
I gather associating with Peter Brimelow, Vdare, Jarred Taylor, Francis Coombs, American Renaissance, and Pat Buchanan is a glowing resume. There is an excellent expose of McCain at LGF. It is amazing how the far libertarian Ron Paul Bot right acts when exposed.
This is about a fight for the heart and soul of the conservative movement. It has been a fight that has been a long time in coming. Kejda Gjermani expresses shock that Hot Air would allow “the other McCain” to find a home away from home at Hot Air.
If you are going to accept the truth about Beck, RS McCain, etc. then the next thing one must do is admit that Michell Malkin is right there in the middle with them. She writes for Vdare, which has been declared a hate site. McCain writes for VDare, so does Pat Buchanan, Steve Sailer, Marcus Epstein, Jarred Taylor, John Tanton, etc. Peter Brimelow’s twin brother, John, was once the head of the American National Socialist Party.
Deal with it.
Beck is no different.
The whole lot of them are destroying the image of the GOP because they lack the intellectual honesty to admit that THEY ARE NOT REPUBLICANS. If these people do not see reason, or normal conservatives who are decent people do not do what Charles Johnson and Kejda Gjermani have done, and state the truth, we are doomed. We can think Glenn Beck for keeping Barack Obama in power and preventing the GOP for retaking the House in 2010.
The anti-GOP “Libertarians” are some of the most vocal “conservative” voices on the internet. They denigrate John McCain, George W. Bush, and good men like Lindsey Graham. They want you to think that all Republicans except for a chosen few are evil. According to Glenn Beck, Republican icon Theodore Roosevelt was a monster.
It makes you wonder what side Beck and his little libertarian buddies are actually on, doesn’t it?
So, when is Beck going to decide to run for POTUS?
