Andrew Breitbart rightfully called Glenn Beck a “coward” and a “snake” in 2011 after Beck suggested that some tea partiers backing Newt Gingrich’s 2012 presidential campaign were at least in part motivated by racism. “I don’t care what he does, because he is dead to me,” Breitbart said. And Breitbart was right as Beck proved this past week when he joined the left in supporting evil.
Beck and those around him, have long shown signs of their true character. The Daily Caller ran a piece in 2011 (“The DC Exclusive: Conservatives hit Beck for taking content without attribution”) revealing an astounding amount of people claiming that he had taken content from them to help him rise to the top.
And S. E. Cupp, a contributor to The Blaze, participated in a the New York Times Magazine interview in 2013 in which she “bravely” slammed Rush Limbaugh. She followed up on that article with a piece of her own for the New York Daily News in which she doubled down on her attack on Limbaugh and criticized those defending him. If Cupp truly wanted to attack a fellow conservative to show what an independent mind she is, why didn’t she attack her boss Beck instead? So much for being brave. And no wonder a person of her character works for Beck.
Beck has drifted leftward over time, peppering his show with support for sodomite-based “marriage” and a general abandonment of standing up for sexual morality.
He came out and announced in December that he would side with GLAAD against the supposed “hetero-fascism” of Russia. Apart from being willing to side with the evil GLAAD, others have noted the oddity of him using terms like “hetero-fascism.” Aren’t those on the right supposed to believe that words mean something and PC language belongs to the left? If that’s the case, then why would Beck use a fictitious word such as “hetero-fascism”?
Most recently Beck went on a mea culpa binge, apologizing for his past role in supposedly creating division in the nation. He then made remarks on his own radio show this past week where he explained how he thinks that abortion is undoubtedly murder—but that he supports it nonetheless in some situations:
It is time for strong language… It’s murder… I’m immovable. Abortion is murder. Period. . . .
But there are a couple of tough questions regarding abortion. And actually, the first one for me isn’t tough at all: If the mother’s life is in danger. I’m sorry, but if I have to choose between my wife and the mother of my children, and the baby, I’m choosing my wife. Does this make me inconsistent? Perhaps. Does it make me a flawed person? Perhaps it does. Maybe we’ll try again for the baby, and Lord, forgive me, because I am only human. But I need her. My other children need her. I think most people are on board with that. Some people aren’t. And that’s fine. I’m flawed. I pray that I can have a better understanding.
But here’s the really, really hard question. What about the real choice of the woman? What if her right to choose to create a baby was stolen from her [because of] rape? Now you have taken away her right to choose… If you’re asking her to carry to term nine months, a baby from a monster – not the baby’s fault, obviously – but from the woman’s perspective, that reminder, that act of violence, that horrible violation, the trauma of that? I can’t even begin to comprehend. And again, I know that makes me a flawed human. Maybe. I’ve tried. I guess some people would ask her to carry the baby full term because it is either killing a baby or it isn’t. But if she can’t deal with the baby because of the circumstances of conception once the baby is born, give her up for adoption. I understand, I have an adopted son. And he has changed my life. But if it is my wife or daughter, I can’t demand that of her. Horrible flaw in me, I’m sure. But it is who I am today. [Preceding paragraph added at 11:57 PM, 1/26/13]
Yet he also made it clear on his radio show that he has no time for anyone who “hates” sodomites:
Anybody within the sound of my voice that hates a gay person because they’re gay, you have no place calling yourself a fan of mine. You are not a fan of mine, you have no friendship here if you hate people because they’re gay.
Think about that: in Beck’s mind, it’s okay to advocate for and actually engage in murder (pseudo-conservative Charles Murray calls this justifiable homicide) but he can’t even tolerate you if you “hate” sodomites.
In other words, it is better to murder someone you don’t hate then it is to let live someone you do “hate.”
What a perverse and evil society we have become.
Glenn Beck is getting his praise and thirty pieces of silver from some elements of the left now for his support of evil. Good for him. He should enjoy it because the time will come for the left to do to him what it currently is doing to Chris Christie. And when that time comes I wonder how many people will back him.
I certainly won’t. Glenn Beck is dead to me.
