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

Former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack responded sharply (

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 .

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.
