Beck bet on the wrong horse and lost… now that Cruz endorsed Trump, what will Glenn do? Support GARY JOHNSON?!?
Beck posts when he heard ‘the news’:
Profoundly sad day for me.
Disappointment does not begin to describe.
Maybe it is time to go to the mountains for a while. (Read below and notice the knives prodding that direction)
Again, disappointment doesn’t begin to describe my feelings.
America is an idea, not a country. When we discuss the destruction of our country, that is vastly different than the destruction of an idea.
I fear the idea is already lost, due to the panic of losing ones comfort and country.
There are many things that I believe that I will never say, but I shall never say the things I do not believe.
Come what may.
The founders meant it much differently when they said: join or die.
Welcome to the big tent. GOP / DNC 2016 join or die.
Long live the idea of the republic.
Beck, an ardent supporter of Cruz, campaigned tirelessly for the Texas Senator throughout the primary season, even to the detriment of his own business interests, as the increasingly strident tone of his support for Cruz and denunciations of Trump reportedly alienated listeners and advertisers.
He often couched his enthusiasm for Cruz with a religious zeal, describing the Texan as “anointed” by God and “raised for these times” as “the next George Washington.” At key moments in the primary, he urged his listeners to fast and pray for Cruz’s victory.
But as Trump’s momentum continued, Beck expressed harsh criticism for the Evangelical Christians who threw their support to Cruz’s opponent, declaring at one point that “real Christians” don’t support Donald Trump and that “all throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God” because Cruz lost the Southern primaries to Trump.
The fervor of Beck’s support for Cruz has been matched only by the vehemence of his opposition to Trump, whom he regularly compares to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. He has called the New York real estate mogul “a pathological narcissistic sociopath” and “a narcissistic psychopath” whose presidency “will lead to civil war or worst.”
Beck even turned his ire on Trump voters. After the Nevada caucus, he called Trump supporters “brown shirts” in reference to the infamous Nazi paramilitary group. Last year, he accused Trump’s Tea Party supporters of being racist for opposing President Obama while supporting Trump, who Beck considers to be a leftwing progressive like Obama.
Beck has said that he will be voting Johnson on Nov. 8.
The election is close, with most polls in the margin of error zone.
Every vote really does count.
Any vote by a conservative that isn’t for Trump sets up a Hillary win.
What should Glenn do now?
