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.
