Deja vu: Is Glenn Beck attempting to co-opt the liberty movement?Submitted by RestoreOurNation on Tue, 02/05/2013 - 20:06
For me, being a libertarian is about understanding the dysfunction of the two-party system and the corruption it allows. I have been hesitant to criticize too harshly any libertarian voices, preferring instead to focus on areas of agreement and Glenn Beck is someone I have continued to follow because his message, in part, helped me discover Ron Paul. However, there is no denying Glenn Beck high jacked the TEA party and I would be unable to describe what it even stands for now.
Look at the titles of the videos uploaded to Glenn's site today:
- Ron Paul's despicable comments
- Glenn: End the war...now!
- Jesse Ventura is a dirtbag
After viewing the videos posted today on Glenn's site the Blaze, I believe he is again trying to co-opt a movement of liberty; first the TEA party and now the libertarian party in general. I have no other explanation how someone could agree so often with Ron Paul, yet only mentions him during verbal attacks. All the while, remaining cozy with the epitome of GOP establishment: Rick Santorum.
