I’ve been listening to Glenn Beck for years. We don’t see eye to eye on everything, but politically, he and Mark Levin are closest to my views. I am only a fan because they speak the truth, unvarnished as it is sometime. But that’s the way I like it. I can only speak for myself, but I am a fan of facts, not spin. If Glenn or Mark start spinning – letting politics usurp the truth, I will leave them as I have others.
Over the years, Beck has softened his tone. Whereas Mark will tell callers: “Ahh – Shut up and get off the phone, which he does often – Beck has become the voice of calm (for the most part). He used to be a much angrier man – screaming at callers to “Get Off My Phone!” He hasn’t done that in years. We’ve witnessed his transformation from angry right-winger to measured and thoughtful constitutionalist.
This is why I wasn’t surprised to see Glenn accept an invitation to meet with Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook. While others claimed he was just sucking up to Zuckerberg, we knew that Beck would agree to meet with almost anyone. What’s the worse that could happen? We knew Glenn would remain true to himself and not kow-tow to Zuckerberg.
Now comes another situation. For those unfamiliar, fiction thriller author Brad Thor was on the Glenn Beck radio show recently. He presented a hypothetical scenario, where Trump was elected and morphed into a dictator. He said: “It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.” Anything that came after must therefore be couched in those terms. Thor then said that if things got to that point, Congress wouldn’t have the stones to remove Trump and then asked of the hypothetical: “Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority?”
From this exchange many websites have concluded that Thor was advocating Trump’s assassination and that Beck agreed with him. So “remove from office” means assassination? read more
