Is a money maker. He says whatever he believes will grow his audience. I was a fan of Beck around 2010ish before I knew any better. During that time (before the election shenanigans started kicking in) he always referred to himself as "Libertarian". He seemed "much more radical (from a mainstream perspective)". He used to always talk down the Federal Reserve and made a big deal about it (I agree it is a big deal).
Regardless, once the elections started he went back to Good Boy Beck. Started his holy crusade of "we must save Israel because arbitrary lines drawn in the sand by humans are important!".
All in all, I would never take him seriously again. Who cares if he is "legitimate". He has a lot to do to prove himself truly legitimate. Until then, he is full of crap in my book.
