After Beck’s falling out with the Republican party and the youth, the failed Ted Cruz endorsement and the failed religious credulity, no rational person really respects Glenn Beck’s opinions – but something happened today that seems like Beck has taken yet another step toward insanity: endorsing Hillary Clinton… maybe.
Many news outlets are reporting the shocking statement Glenn Beck made today regarding moral voting in the upcoming election. In a Facebook post, Beck says:
“Every person, each of us must decide what is a bridge too far… It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity. If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice.”
There is no one left in America who Glenn Beck has not surprised. Glenn Beck has been Never Trump since the beginning – and for good reasons. I defiantly do not support or endorse Donald Trump either, but the life-time of Conservative reporting and support would make anyone assume Beck would grudgingly vote for Trump like the rest of the Republican party. But it seems like a lapse of judgement made Beck go just a little too far because the sun didn’t even set on the Facebook post when he was asked to clarify and he responded on Vice and his website that:
“I Am Neither Endorsing Nor Voting for Hillary Clinton”
Vice News, and everyone else on Earth thought that it was something of an endorsement. Beck is completely against the lesser-of-two-evils vote (ignoring his own voting record) but he does admit to the fallacy that not voting for Trump means Hillary will win. Going further, he even admits that Hillary, even with his 30 year-old stance against her, is a moral and ethical choice.
Listening to Beck is like listening to a dementia patient: nothing is certain, proof is unnecessary, and the points are mute. This dementia-like move from Beck could be just a cry for attention – like many of his statements lately, but he defiantly didn’t mean what he said. YES – it sounded like an endorsement but NO – Glenn Beck didn’t mean to endorse Hillary.
