Glenn Becks wishes for a Time Machine to Rethink Ron Paul

Well, now Beck is wishing for a time machine. On his radio show last week, he apologized to libertarians everywhere for calling himself a libertarian in the past. He has long called himself a conservative with libertarian leanings, but he said he is now leaning so far libertarian that he is almost horizontal. He said, "I'm going through a change here."

The Sheeple will believe anything

If he does a week-long special on the vast amount of scientific data that proves 9/11 was demolition then I might start to rethink Beck. Until then he is certified Controlled Opposition.

"There can be only one permanent revolution - a moral one: The regeneration of the inner man."
—Tolstoy

"The body is but a vessel for the soul,
A puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny.
And lo, the body is not eternal,
For it must feed on the flesh of others,
Lest it return to the dust whence it came.
Therefore the soul deceives and despises."

Total bunk!

He sandbagged Ron and we shouldn't let him off the hook so easy. Let's see what he does when we get closer to an election. Beck will show his true stripes then.

I was wondering

when he was going to get around to this. I believe, as a Mormon, he should never have thought any other way. Oh well. Perhaps with his influence more people will start looking in the right direction. Oh, that's right, Glenn Beck is evil so that won't happen. WRONG.

Interesting stuff...

Do I think Glenn Beck is "there" yet...... NO
Do I think he should be a LEADER in the Libertarian movement..... NO
At the very least he is not well grounded yet..... at the worst he is playing a game.
Do I think as a PERSON, Glenn Beck is "coming around" and having an awakening....... possibly. And we all know that it doesn't happen all at once..... it is TOUGH to "let go" of ALL of your prior beliefs.

BUT, having said all that..... I think it is MARVELOUS that these things are BEING SAID on national radio and TV. EVEN IF Beck is being disingenuous, it is BEING SAID and will get some of his listeners to THINK about their positions. This provides an OPENING for new ideas and discussion. And it is in the creating of that little crack in the minds of his listeners that WE have an opportunity.

So, if Fox IS playing a game here.... it is a dangerous one for THEM. Every time Beck comes out with an "outrageous" statement that gets his minions to THINK..... there is a RISK to the status quo. If they are playing anything, it seems to me it is Russian Roulette.

It should be interesting to see if he continues on this path. I'm not real impressed with John Stossel either, BUT, as I said above...... if FOX has decided to go for the Libertarian audience, then they are playing with FIRE and if "our side" is listening for those little openings in the minds of the fans..... we can USE this game to make progress!

Lies...Lies...Lies...PLEASE let's dump Beck on DP...PLEASE !!!

To All Daily Paulers......An

To All Daily Paulers......An evil-minded, racist, warmonger, violent man like Glennn Beck should not be mentioned on this website. And he is not a libertarian either. Once again, pipe-smoking Glennn Beck has advocated police brutality, IRS taxing your income and property, and he is also in love with main-stream-media propaganda and lies.
According to Huffington Post, in 2001, Glennn Beck lamented that he would beat Charles Rangel with a showel and poison Nanci Pelosi because they were fierce critics of George Bush's war in Iraq.
Glennn Beck has come on Fax News every afternoon to pit Americans against each other. He believes only himself should be rich but nobody else as you may see his skin is getting pinker on a daily basis. He's targeting minorities such ACORN and Van Jones to get his radical-racist comments to the white community in order to spread fears around the United States against the Obama Administration.
But Glennn Beck won't mention if it's George Bush and Dick Cheney who almost destroyed the country within the last eight years.
Are you calling or classifying Glennn Beck as a Libertarian? If so, the libertarian party may have started with as bad brand and its stance should be extremely questioned. My family and I would definitely take a second look at the Libertarian Party before confirming our pending membership within that organization. He's complaining about big government, but where was he when $ 10 billion a month were wasted on a war that we did not need? This war has put us where we are today.
With his violent mind and words, my children and the rest of my family would never stand or sit in front of tv screen watching or listening to Glennn Beck. I don't want my children to be raised with violent or hated mind, and your children should neither.
When those garbages come out of Glennn Beck's mouth, if someones happens to listen to them by mistake, he/she should take a broom and make some sweeping immediately.
Fox News already said that its hosts can lie and not be punished under the Freedom of Speech.
Glennn Beck is one of the most dangerous people and liars in the media industry. He should be ranked 1st and Rush Limbaugh 2nd.
Many people have suspected that Glennn is secretly part of the Republican Party or the so-called "Special Interest Club".
Please do not associate and or link Glennn Beck to Ron Paul. Do us that big favor.

ACORN and Van Jones,

as well as Obama and the rest of his minions need to be exposed for the trash that they are.

The more Beck does of it, the better I like it.

Obama and his pack of cohorts are scum.

Just

There's nothing wrong with smoking a pipe, in moderation.

That kinda depends...

on what you loaded the pipe with.

NCMarc's picture

a prospective...

I was a republican up until I found out about Ron Paul about a year before the election. I was a proud neo-con. Then, when I heard the message, I started to question everything I believed in. I woke up. i was asleep for 36 years. You can't wake up overnight. Glenn is waking up but he has outside influences.

Now i am very libertarian in my views. I took me at least a year to make the full jump but I am all in now.

In order to expand this movement, we need to welcome in those who have interest and we must realize they might be people that openly criticized Ron Paul and the Libertarian view point.

It takes a long time for views of people to change and if we seem closed off to others, they will not accept our view point. Right now it's hip to be a Libertarian because the neo-cons are not in charge right now.

We'll see when the elections come around again.

You're right about needing

You're right about needing to give people time to come around. We shouldn't be antagonistic towards those who want to join us. That said, there is a big difference between trusting the honest intentions of someone with a major national platform within the controlled press and a regular person learning about liberty. There is a fine line when it comes to those who Beck is waking up but we can't allow ourselves to be conned by his ilk.

When Beck has John Farmer,

When Beck has John Farmer, the chief counsel to the 9/11 Commission, on to talk about his new book covering the deliberate lies the commission was given by all the agencies, then I might begin to think he could possibly be changing. Right now, he is doing little more than struggling to co-opt the most awake among us. He knows that we can shut him down if he doesn't keep "waking up" because many of the people listening to him are starting to do their own research and learning on their own.

This is a dangerous game he is playing. One that he can't win without turning entirely toward the truth.

And it may be true.

People can change as they learn.

However, I say let the "proof be in the pudding" of his actions.
Talk is cheap.
He needs to walk the walk.

There are tons of newcomers to the movement here, that were leftists or neocons several years ago, and then changed.
It is possible, and a certain level of encouragement and stern guidance can be helpful.

Anybody can be a fake, or become a turncoat, but not everyone will be one. Some will remain true. And there is no law "cast in concrete" that Glenn Beck couldn't have a genuine epiphany here.
His actions will tell.

sorry

but with the overall application of your point applying to GB I call bs

you do not state your words on important situations with the awareness that Glenn Beck does to a mass amount of people and thus articulate and undermine the movement in which he has created then claiming oh please forgive me I have no understanding, remember I am a recovering alcoholic please forgive me I am coming around

that is just entirely laughable
please see through the charade

because the bottom line is Beck is part of the MSM. And the media as well as our current representing government annnd the big corporations and banks do NOT give a ____ about you or we the people

"his actions will tell"
his actions HAVE already told you plenty.. that statement just follows this logic
"just keep watching, maybe he will turn around...."

and that is for suckers that have lost their principle
he will slow down the movement, keep people at bay because they think he is on the job and ultimately burn you again

I won't even be watching him, but you can quote me on that

he is the valve to relieve pressure and keep people at bay

You cannot call "BS" on an opinion.

I stated my OPINION that there could be a change taking place.
I didn't state it as "fact".

And regardless of whether he's actually "changed" in any way, right now he is doing a great job at exposing the White House cabal of radical communists for what they are.

And he's the only one out there who's doing it.

Excellent point.

Excellent point.

wonder how many will fall for it
here is a decent reminder for any who need it

I wasn't even thinking anything like that at all

and when I read your headline BAM! I think you are RIGHT ON

I was thinking about how GB is angling to "captivate" an audience.. and wow...your headline.. my idea, and your idea put together.. made me feel sick because I really think you are right. GB and his followers are not Libertarians, they are entertainers who spin the truth to captivate us in their web. It's a shame people believe we need GB because to me, GB coming in signals the beginning of the end of this movement. He's a body snatcher.

Thats exactly what I was thinking.

besides- he's on the tv. Havent we all decided that the internet is for news/ reality and the tv is for grandma and entertainment? I trust any tv /msm news "reformer" as far as i can throw ém.
