A worrisome "Beckism"
« on: February 23, 2014, 01:03:00 PM »
To paraphrase, "We're not concerned about Left or Right but right and wrong."
That, my friends, is charlatan speak.  That is what often precedes Democrat majorities.  The soft-headed "Conservatives" and "Independents", fall for it every time, while the lock-step Leftists vote as they are supposed to, DEMOCRATS.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

I agree with Beck.  A lot of people call themselves R4s and are not conservatives and a lot call themselves Ds because their family's have been Ds forever and they are LIV enough to not see why they might not be a D in its current iteration or an R with all the Progressives in that party.  Both parties are corrupting the nation and Beck sees it.. so do Hannity and Levin, too.  BTW Beck is a libertarian.

If that's a paraphrase, what did he actually say? If it was something about not caring about R or D ... I have no problem with it.

It was as close as I could remember in the 13 seconds from when I heard it, to when I posted it.  It may have been his slogan between segments or The Blaze motto.
It was NOT R or D.  It was Left or Right.

You know the saying "the early bird get's the worm but the second mouse get's the cheese?".  I don't trust people who present themselves as altruists.

The early bird gets the worm.....but the early worm gets eaten by the bird, grasshopper!     :laugh:

Beck is doing the work that many Republicans refuse to do. He is building an entire network from the ground up, promoting conservative and libertarian points of view, teaching American history, exposing Progressive plans and schemes, and warning about dangers to Liberty that the mainstream media ignore or deny.

He, along with Rush Limbaugh and a handful of others, is effectively daring the Republican Party to take a stand against the perils we face and to oppose the forces responsible for them, knowing that the GOP will not survive if its leadership continues to pretend that America's foundational principles need not be publicly promoted or defended in order to be saved.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Navy (if I may be familiar!), that's my point.  You may be glad he's on our side, while I'm still not too sure he is.  Like to put all our eggs in the Beck basket we may be surely let down.  But each to our own!   :beer:

If you don't think Beck is on our side, whose side do you suspect he's on?   :shrug:

I don't know of anyone who "puts all their eggs in the Beck basket."  Do you?

Don't feel threatened--he's one of many conservatives currently fighting the good fight.   He's one of the good guys.

suspicion of anyone who claims to be acting from altruistic motives is simply rational.

Do you actually watch The Blaze?  Because what you posted to start this tread is from a commercial for The Blaze.  I know you said a while back you don't watch Real News on The Blaze because the panel is too young.  Frankly i find their discussions on the panel refreshing and and smart, same with Wilkow and the special reports the do on Wednesday with Laurie Dhue followed by former CIA, Buck Sexton, are excellent.
