Glenn Beck has Lost It

Update : Ed Morrissey wrote a brilliant article on this subject, several days ago - http://hotair.com/archives/2009/11/25/video-beck-discourages-re-enlistment-under-obama/

I have been for years and will continue to be a Glenn Beck fan, the host of one of the most popular Conservative talk shows on the radio, a rising star on Fox News, and the author of five books. His television program has helped to expose the ACORN scandal, the Van Jones scandal, and serve as inspiration to the Conservative movement, despite puddles of tears.

However, I am not afraid to call Beck out on what he is wrong on. Such as the 9/12 Project, which has a criminal lacking of National defense in a organization based on the events occurred after one of the worst acts of war on the United States in decades, and the most recent example of Libertarianism gone wild, is Glenn Beck calling for soldiers not to re-enlist.

Could you repeat that again?

As in the words of Eric Dondero, over at the Libertarian Republican, Glenn Beck is taking the unusual step of advising a family member who is serving in the Armed Forces, not to re-enlist with Obama as our current Commander in Chief. I am someone who is considering serving our Nation in the Armed Forces, and the current Commander in Chief does have an effect into a final decision, however, with our troops morale as low as it is, we cannot afford a shortage in recruits.

Though, I have serious problems with Barack Obama serving as the supposed Commander in Chief, I would pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America, and if needed, die as a soldier fighting for the freedoms our Founding Fathers secured for us. We are in serious trouble with Obama as the President in regards to National defense, however, no-one should ever be discouraged from serving their Nation.

Glenn Beck is unwise on this, as we need to be fighting for our troops at home, supporting troop increases which are needed to win the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, stand strong for our Armed Forces, and encourage enlistment into the Marines, Army, Air Force, Navy, National Guard, Border Patrol, Coast Guard, etc.

Presidents will come and go, serving your Nation on the front lines is a once in a lifetime experience.

God Bless the United States, our Troops fighting on the front lines, our freedoms and values which we hold so dear in this Nation, and those who are willing to stand for what is right, such as supporting our troops, when the supposed Commander in Chief will not.

Not so sure. Now that we have a foreign-born President, who has allegiances to foreign interests, most assuredly Radical Islamists, can we honestly make that claim that in November, 2009 we are still the United States of America? We violated our own Constitution by voting in this man.

So, Glenn is not at all out of line here.

I don't agree with him entirely. I say, let's hold the line in Afghanistan, until 2012, when we electe a Republican who loves America to the Presidency.

But Glenn's instincts here are right on.

Beck needs to take in it a notch

Or three

I read what Beck actually said. He wasn't issuing a specific "Sell" recommendation. More like a downgrade from "Buy" to "Neutral".

I'd suggest reading again very closely what was said and pay attention to the words -- they matter.

But just whose nation is it? Does it belong to the illegal alien invaders who will soon be granted legal status and citizenship? Does it belong to the anti-Christians who are represented by the closet muslim in the White House? Does it belong to the multi-national corporations who have outsourced nearly all our jobs except for those at McDonald's and WalMart? Does it belong to the lazy gimme crowd who just love Odumbo because he's spreading other people's wealth around to them? Or how about the politically-correct generals who can't see a jihadist even when they trip over him and who will court-martial our own troops on the word of a dangerous jihadist? Now is definitely NOT the time to be enlisting in 'our' military - - since it doesn't seem to be 'ours' any more.

What?

You said it: "I would pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America, and if needed, die as a soldier fighting for the freedoms our Founding Fathers secured for us."

What happens why the CIC does not believe in the Constitution or the freedoms our Founding Fathers secured for us? You're argument is then completely nullified. We all have to make that determination about what our CIC believes. Beck has decided that he (the CIC) does not believe in the USC, and I join him in that decision.

The only reason I would serve, is that there are good people worth protecting out there. That may be enough.

Believe me. I understand Beck's position. However, we are talking about the United States Armed Forces, if we start losing ranks and faith in the United States Armed Forces, and all of the good guys start leaving the last somewhat good branch of government, what will happen to us?

What if we are in a monster war, do we want to push our national defense to even weaker levels then what Obama wants.

Obama is a jackass, I hate the man, he is destroying America. What would happen if all of the good guys just left the Military, what would we become? Our Military is already starting to crumble with this jackass, what will it do to our soldiers overseas....when they hear those supposedly on their side are encouraging folks not to re-enlist!

That is a spit in the face of all of those who have fought and died for the freedoms secured for America, Iraq, Afghanistan, and every other Nation on the earth.

This bastard is destroying America, are we going to let him destroy the Armed Forces, our honor, and the greatness of serving your Nation?

I think not!

Beck needs to focus more on how we can defend our country, disrupt al Qaeda, and keep Iran from the bomb.

He was strong on this before, but is too satisfied by taking a more isolationist tack.
