Neo-cons go after Medina – Updated

I saw this pop up on Hot Air, so I had to check it out. While I don’t believe the government had a roll in 9/11, other than incompetence, does anyone see the irony in Glenn Beck acting like truthers are nut jobs? So I guess Glenn’s question your government with boldness only applies to his questions and conspiracies.

Six days ago, the big news out of Texas was that Tea Party activist and gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina came within the margin of error with Kay Bailey Hutchison, who barely clung to second place against incumbent Rick Perry. Today, Glenn Beck suffers heartbreak when Medina more or less cops to being a 9/11 Truther as well as a “constitutional conservative” candidate.

Again, I don’t believe in the 9/11 Truther conspiracy, but I think it’s completely crazy that we would cast aside an awesome candidate who apparently Beck was in love with until this so-called revelation because she didn’t just say 9/11 truthers are completely nuts and I’d imprison everyone of them in Gitmo.

I guess the hypocracy shouldn’t surprise me, but unfortuately I’m a Glenn Beck fan, so it’s pretty disappointing. I guess he’d rather stick with big government conservatives and cast all his rants aside in pursuit of the 9/11 Truther witches.

Update: Medina Responds to Beck

I was asked a question on the Glenn Beck show today regarding my thoughts on the so-called 9/11 truth movement. I have never been involved with the 9-11 truth movement, and there is no doubt in my mind that Muslim terrorists flew planes into those buildings on 9/11. I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way. No one can deny that the events on 9-11 were a tragedy for all Americans and especially those families who lost loved ones.

The question surprised me because it's not relevant to this race or the issues facing Texans. This campaign has always been about private property rights and state sovereignty. It is focused on the issues facing Texans. It is not a vehicle for the 9-11 truth movement or any other group.

The real underlying question here, though, is whether or not people have the right to question our government. I think the fact that people are even asking questions on this level gets to the incredible distrust career politicians have fostered by so clearly taking their direction from special interests instead of the people, whether it's Rick Perry and the his HPV mandate or Kay Hutchison and voting for the bank bailout. It is absolutely the right and duty of a free people to question their government. Texas does not need another politician who tells you what you want to hear, then violates your liberties and steals your property anyway. I fully expect to be questioned and to be held accountable as Governor, and that's the underlying issue here: should people be questioning their government. And the answer is yes, they should be.

So, Glenn Beck is a Neocon now? Perhaps a Neocon Jew of the ZOG?

Get a life.

I’m pretty sure he’s for the wars, expanding the wars, bombing Iran, etc. Pretty sure that would classify him as a neocon. I was more talking about the people on Hot Air than Glenn Beck.

I guess you throw the word Jew in to muddy the waters. You can read every post on this site, and you’ll find nothing going against Jews. Take you smears somewhere else, jackass.

Were it not clear before yesterday in the manner which Glenn Beck sandbagged and set a trap for surging Texas gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina who was rising in the polls and closing in on establishment insiders Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchinson, it should be clear now that Glenn Beck is an establishment status quo shill masquerading and posing as a revolutionary. His job is to obfuscate the truth, to serve as an outlet for the supremely misguided and ill informed in America, a master manipulator, a minister of disinformation and propaganda telling authorized truths as a card carrying member of America’s propaganda matrix.

[...] there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic.Yesterday, I was very disappointed with Glenn Beck’s smear of Debra Medina, who is running for Texas [...]

Even Beck’s 912 groups are embarrassed by him.

I have been an on-and-off fan of Glenn Beck. I am embarrassed by his shallowness in his rush to judgement and smear of this woman. I value him more for the books he recommends and less and less for his flawed thinking as revealed in this interview. Shame on Beck.

Disappointed listener,

Peter

Glen Beck is, like Hussein Melon Head, a JOKER!!

He was making fun of Brown on election night
and of the “Birthers”…

Anyone taking the Mau-Mau from Mombasa seriously
cannot be taken seriously!
