Beck Loves Him Some Matt Blevin

Matt Blevin, the Tea Party candidate challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is attracting support from Glenn Beck. In fact, Beck says that Blevin is just like the founders and that if he isn’t elected, McConnell will make sure that The Blaze and other conservative sites are shut down. Wha? Yeah, I know.

Beck asserted that Comcast is refusing to carry his The Blaze network because of political pressure from people like McConnell before warning that if he gets re-elected, he will use to IRS to decimate all those Tea Party groups and media outlets who supported his opponent Matt Bevin, whom Beck declared to be a “Founder quality” man who has “been called by God.”

Bevin, Beck said, is “a guy I really, truly believe has been called by God. I really do. I met that guy and I was talking to him and I was like ‘oh my gosh.’ I mean, the Spirit jumps off of that guy. He’s Founder quality and I’m talking to him and he left the room and I looked at Pat and I said ‘do you feel that?’ and he said ‘oh yeah.’ I said ‘that guy’s called from God.’ This is a guy we prayed for.”

Blevin is the same guy who says that the founding fathers loved cockfighting and dogfighting.

  • a “Founder quality” man

    Wow, talk about damning someone with faint praise. Does that mean he’s an oligarchic aristocrat?

  • cptdoom

    Mitch McConnell – liberal? I means seriously, McConnell is now part of the evil oppressive socialist system that is using the IRS to stop his critics?

    As for Blevin being “called by God,” that sounds suspiciously like one of those Mormon revelations. Careful Glenn, you get too obvious with that heresy and some of the nice old biddies who listen to your crap might turn elsewhere.

    His last name is Bevin, not Blevin.

    I met Bevin a couple of months ago at a charity fundraiser dinner. He was very nice, very generous to the charity involved. I found myself thinking, “Wow, what a nice guy!” About two days later he issued some statement about Teh Gays and I remembered why I had previously thought he was bonkers.

    I got called by God once. The caller ID said “Unknown Unknown” so I figured it was Donald Rumsfeld again and let it go to voicemail.

    Beck meant to say “Flounder quality.” The kind of flounder with both eyes on the right side.

    Blevin is the same guy who says that the founding fathers loved cockfighting and dogfighting.

    I wasn’t offended by that statement, as it’s likely true. There wasn’t a lot to do in Colonial America, and there was no SPCA yet. The offensive part was that Bevin then tried to argue from that that dog & cockfighting must be legal today, because the Founders did it. The Founders grew hemp and kept slaves too. I guess the prohibitions against both of those are unconstitutional then.

  • I’m amazed that Beck still manages to keep The Blaze on the intertubes given the powerful and numerous forces that are always conspiring to take him down. Is there anyone who isn’t part of the conspriacy to destroy Glenn Beck?

    What could be more fun to watch than the righty wackjobs ganging up on McConnell, other than the contest in Jaw-Ja between Gingery and Broun as to who is the more strident nutcase

  • dingojack

    So Mr Bek likes the ‘cockfighting lovin” Mr Blevin?

    Nppe, not a trace of homoeroticism, here. Move along, please.*

    * Did Mister Blevin know Mr Bek in the Eighties? Exactly how well?

    Enquiring minds and all that….

  • I have this headline for ya, Ed:

    “Beck bloviates to boost Bevin’s bullshit brand.”

    “Is there anyone who isn’t part of the conspriacy to destroy Glenn Beck?”

    Well, I used to be, but I had to quit so’s I could spend more time with somebody’s family (my own won’t have anything to do with me).
