You are missing a big part of the equation.

Beck has shown dozens of times that he is a trained propagandist for the statists/fascists, a liar and deceiver, a gatekeeper who is very skilled at controlling thought.

You are playing an emotional card for some reason and using a baby with the bath water fallacy. Most of us welcome any former statist/neocon. But, we that are rejecting Beck are doing so based on very rational reasons, experience, and we recognize the techniques he uses. I recognize his goals fairly quickly, much like when I analyzed Limbaugh many years ago and deciphered his propaganda style. You are free to be an apologist and give him a chance. I'll jump ahead a couple years and just say "We told you so, sucker."

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
