Beck ticks off some listeners

But it wouldn’t be the first time for the firebrand.

Former Sheriff Mack on Bundy Ranch
Standoff: Obama Feds Willing to ‘Shoot at Unarmed Citizens’

April 23, 2014 By Matthew Burke | TPNN

Former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack responded sharply (WATCH VIDEO BELOW) and critically to Glenn Beck’s stance on the Bundy Ranch Standoff in Nevada.

Sheriff Mack says that that rancher Cliven Bundy is “a good man” who he’s known for a long time and “just wants to be left alone.” Mack says this is something that the federal government doesn’t understand and never will.

Sheriff Mack points out that the Bundy Ranch has been located at Bunkersville, Nevada since 1877, and that the federal government has driven out of business 53 different ranchers in the area.

“The government is destroying the ranching and farming industry in America. What do you think that’s going to do to our food supply?” asks Sheriff Mack. “What do you think that does to liberty?” Mack asks while boldly proclaiming that “the greatest enemy to our country is our own federal government.”

Cliven Bundy is the last rancher left in Clark County, Nevada and the federal government lays claim to over 80% of the state’s land.

Sheriff Mack blasted Glenn Beck for his comments made after the standoff, comments that have angered many of Beck’s loyal followers. Beck had said he disagrees with some of the Bundy Ranch protesters being armed in response to the Obama BLM’s armed invasion of the ranch. Mack says that Beck should “be ashamed” of himself for his comments and should “be out here marching” with the protesters:

I notice many downplaying the disagreement but I think Beck managed to step square in the middle of the cow pie. It will be interesting to see how he recovers.

Beck was making a mountain out of a mole hill. Then railed against it as if it were reality. In fact, Beck’s own brand of “freedom of speech” has gotten light-years in front of him before, like when  he promised big “earth- shattering news” that would change everything, then never mentioned it after. Now he wants to jump in as the cop on the beat. Glenn, you’re “planting your flag” but on someone else’s backyard .

‘I’m Planting My Flag’: Glenn Beck Doubles Down on His Message to Those Calling for Violence

Apr. 15, 2014 2:41pm

Glenn Beck has a message for anyone who is “crying for revolution, insurrection … and a call to arms”: He wants nothing to do with you.

“This morning I got up and I saw some more news reports, and more people in America that are standing up now and crying for revolution, insurrection, arming yourself, and a call to arms,” Beck said on his radio program Tuesday. “I will tell you I believe in the Second Amendment, and I will defend myself. I believe in the rights that we have. But I will tell you more than I believe in my rights, I believe in the responsibilities that we have to God. And God does not call anyone to anger. God does not call anyone to vengeance ever, ever, ever.”

Beck clearly got way ahead of himself on this and then expected everyone to follow him.
This is the problem with these bigger than life personalities, they need to be held to account.

    Mr. Beck is a loser.
    No one is calling for violence, they want to be left the HELL alone, but when violence visits your home, do you always turn the other cheek? I think not, the time has come to stand up to the jack booted thugs, militarize cops, lying politicians and people like Harry Reid who precipitated this nonsense.

    Beck.. he’s another lost soul on the Highway to Hell now.

    Over the days Beck has stayed on it, digging in his heels. If he wanted separation from the Bundy ordeal, then he should shut the hell up !!! But no. I just took this from a current posting.\

      You’ve got to distance yourself’: Bundy under fire for racist “negro” comments

      Thursday, Apr 24, 2014 at 12:53 PM EST

      Earlier this month, Glenn came under fire from some in his own audience and beyond for his response to the standoff in Nevada between rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government. Despite the escalating tensions, Glenn advocated for a peaceful response to the conflict. While the majority of Bundy’s supporters and those who gathered at his ranch were simply standing up for what they believed to be another example of government overreach, there were violent and fringe elements of the group that caught the media’s attention.

    He goes on to quote a NYT’s article that supposedly indicts Bundy. I’ve about had it with Beck and any particular agenda he wants to push on a given day. He’s gone so low as character assassination. First off, Bundy, a cattle rancher in Nevada, is not a good media spokesman. Duh! THAT surprises Beck? He should be savvy at it? Then he criticizes the way he is handling it….or who is helping him.

    I’ve seen Beck do this to people before too. If your point was “distance yourself from him” then follow your own advice, Beck. No one is forcing you to pay attention or cover it. You’ve marginalized some good people before. Who should be listening to you?????
