It appears that for at least one influential member of the Conservative Entertainment Complex, the right-wing admiration of GOP Presidential frontrunner and sentient piece of belly-button lint Donald Trump needs to stop ASAP. Taking to his Facebook page late Thursday evening, former Fox News personality and The Blaze founder Glenn Beck called out his fellow conservative pundits and talking heads for their unadulterated support of Trump. In Beck’s opinion, supposedly principled conservatives should have no business sticking up for a man whose actual policy positions are so out of tune with what Republicans and those on the right support.
Early on in his post, Beck pointed out how far apart Trump is from true conservatism. He also highlighted how disastrous The Donald would be in a general election based on how angry he’s made Hispanics.
He is part of the problem when he by his own admission, buys politicians; he said he identifies his “policies more as a democrat”; he makes President Obama look truly humble; he was very pro abortion until very recently; he still says “don’t defund planned parenthood”; he is pro “assault weapon ban”; he is in favor of a wealth tax that would just “take money out of people’s bank accounts”; he is for boots on the ground in Iraq and ‘taking the oil’ from the Iraqi people; he is a progressive ‘republican’; he says single payer health care works; he said he would give people more than just Obama care; the First Lady would be the first to have posed nude in lesbian porno shots; he said that he keeps all the bibles he is given in a “special place” out side the city – and he only goes to church on Christmas and Easter; he is generally not a likable guy; he has around 16% favorability with Hispanics and he has gone bankrupt 4 times.
He then pivoted to calling out fellow conservative media members for supporting someone who, under any other circumstances, they’d be shredding on a daily basis.
Why are big name “conservatives” supporting him? I get it if you are tired of politicians, a republican progressive, or you are only about winning (although those who say they would NEVER vote for him is over 50% of REPUBLICANS). Perhaps you are angry and you just want to make someone pay or just want something done and you don’t care how it gets done, but what PRINCIPLES does he have that they are attracted to?
I am not talking about the average Joe, I am talking about Sean Hannity or Ann Colter (sp). How about Savage or Rush?
These are smart people. What am I missing? Just based on his favorability ratings he could never win in a general. Research shows that he may be near his ceiling now.
Staying with his belief that Trump has reached his ceiling, he made a direct comparison between the billionaire celebrity and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, pointing out that Sanders is actually getting more support from Dem voters than Trump is from the GOP’s base.
Are they just trying to hold on to those disenfranchised republicans and keep them in the fold? I think that is a good goal, but that doesn’t seem to ring true to me as they are actually fighting for him.
I want the system to play itself out and I want the people to decide. It is why I didn’t like idea of a ban of him on the radio show while I was gone. (Although that was misrepresented. Pat and stu didn’t want to talk about him for two days)
I really do want him to be heard as I think it is important to discuss the things like the border. I wish he would bring up the fed and money printing. But I just don’t understand those who claim conservative, small government values and principles saying he is their man.
I understand Bernie Sanders 30-50% of democrats are really die hard socialists. The question remains: is 25% of the GOP trump style ‘conservatives’
You have to love it when those who make their living talking shit about progressives, liberals and Obummer start turning on each other because a temper-tantrum throwing kindergartner decided to run for President so he could feed his massive ego. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…Trump is the gift that keeps on giving.
