It is a perverse mutual

It is a perverse mutual conspiracy of silence. Beck doesn't want his low-information listeners to know that Hagel actually agrees with Rand on key foreign policy issues. Rand doesn't want them to know either because he is trying to build an unsustainable coalition between libertarians and Beckian warmongers. This mutual conspiracy can't work in the long term, of course. If Rand pulls "another Hagel" this papered over coalition will finally tear completely.
