Glenn Beck: The Liberty Movement’s Benedict Arnold

After facing withering criticism following revelations from former employees that Facebook was routinely suppressing news stories from conservative media sources on their “trending” news section, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg summoned a handpicked list of “Conservative leaders” to the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California to address the controversy.

Among those who attended the meeting were: CNN political commentator S.E Cupp, Mitt Romney’s former digital director Zac Moffatt, Washington Examiner columnist Kristen Soltis Anderson, former George W. Bush Press Secretary Dana Perino, and commentator Glenn Beck. When further controversy erupted over the discovery that practically all of the “Conservative leaders” invited were part of the #NeverTrump movement, Barry Bennett, a senior advisor to the Trump campaign, was invited to attend.

It should be noted that some of the most influential Conservative media outlets, several of which were subjected to Facebook’s article censorship, were not invited. Most notably, Matt Drudge of the influential news aggregator The Drudge Report was left in the cold, as was Breitbart, in a move to punish them for their perceived support for Donald Trump.

“We have zero interest in a Facebook photo-op,” Breitbart editor-in-chief Alexander Marlow and colleague Stephen Bannon said. “We do not want, nor do we need, Facebook’s corporate ‘validation.'”

It should be of great concern to anyone who considers themselves a Conservative or Libertarian that the overwhelming majority of those selected by Facebook to serve as de-facto representatives of the entire movement are connected to the Republican establishment, the very same establishment that has lied and manipulated us time and time again to keep their personal fiefdom intact.

To think that Glenn Beck has been proclaimed the de-facto face of the Liberty movement is incredible. As I stated in a previous article, to see Beck manipulate religious Conservatives to vote, and fast, for Ted Cruz by claiming he was “anointed by God” or by portraying him as the second coming of George Washington or Moses was disgusting. His delusional rantings make it clear he views himself as a soldier of Christ when, in fact, he is an agent of the Devil.

The Daily Caller editor Tucker Carlson, who also attended the meeting, blasted Beck for his apparent boot-licking during the meeting.

“I went to that meeting expecting Beck to cry, rend his garments while quoting James Madison, but that’s not at all what happened. He began the most extended assiduous suck-up I think I’ve ever seen a grown man commit. He acted like he was auditioning to be Mark Zuckerberg’s manservant — it was awe-inspiring,’ Carlson said. “I don’t know what his agenda is; it’s either he’s looking to put his tanking Web properties up for sale or he just can’t help himself. There’s a billionaire there, so he sniffs the throne.”

Following the meeting, Beck expressed his belief that Facebook was behaving “appropriately and trying to do the right thing.” Zuckerberg and the other Facebook executives were “humble, open, and listened intently to everyone in the room,” Beck continued, while lambasting the others in attendance for conducting what he described as a “Salem Witch Trial” interrogation of Facebook’s executives.

In summary, Beck has claimed there is no concerted attempt by Facebook to silence Conservative voices. “We can, and will, debate the merits of some of the complaints against Facebook, but, in my opinion, there is no evidence of a top-down initiative to silence conservative voices.”

If it was not clear enough already that Beck had sold himself out to the establishment in order to become part of the controlled opposition, his statements in support of Facebook’s active censorship of opinions its executives deem inappropriate (read political opinions they are opposed to) should put any doubts to rest. His mission from the beginning was to infiltrate and manipulate the Liberty movement, the last bulwark holding back the tide of tyranny in this country, in order to turn it into controlled opposition.

Even in totalitarian societies, some opposition to those in power is allowed to exist; however, most of it is promoted by organizations or individuals who are themselves directly controlled by those in power in order to give the people the perception that there is opposition to their power.

The same situation exists in our country today. The left-right, Democrat-Republican paradigms are a façade that serve no other purpose than to promote balkanization and infighting, which keeps the people distracted and the “shadow government” in power.

As his media empire collapses, Beck and others like him have launched a suicide mission to stop the rising tide of Nationalism and Patriotism. Beck has joined Benedict Arnold and the long line of other traitors who will lead their manipulated followers over a cliff, taking our country and humanity’s future with them.

    I hate to make a comment because it implies I read this article. I did try to make some sense of it. Failed.

  • Maddog

    This is trash. Although I don’t agree with everything Beck says and does, he is one of the few strong voices for liberty we have left!

  • Shane

    this might be an insult to Benedict. At least he had a set of balls. You can’t say the same about the cucked, disgraced, finished talk radio hack Glenn Beck.

    Beck may act like a little girl some days but this article sounds like the writer got offended in a previous interaction and needed to pout.
