Loose cannon media personality and hard core Ted Cruz surrogate Glenn Beck is unraveling in the aftermath of Tuesday’s Indiana thumping. The mercurial Beck who last week called for a day of fasting so that God would help Cruz, is taking Donald Trump’s capture of the Republican party flag very hard. Beck’s visible mental decline accelerated when he told his audience that God needs to punish America for rejecting tricky Ted in favor of Trump, a man who while popular with the voters – democracy anyone? – doesn’t meet the standards of the country’s most visible Cruz-bot.
Breitbart News is reporting “Glenn Beck: America Is a ‘Petulant Child’ God Must Punish for Supporting Trump Over Cruz”:
In a tearful segment before a studio audience on Thursday, Glenn Beck said he believes America is a “petulant child” that God has warned repeatedly and now must punish.
Cruz’s loss in the Indiana primary on Tuesday to the GOP’s now presumptive nominee Donald Trump was especially difficult for the radio talker because he views Trump as a Hitler-like psychopath.
Beck told his studio audience, “When we say we don’t know what the Lord has in store for us, oh I do: our reaping of what we have sown. So, I really think this was the last reckoning for us.”
“We just continue to make the wrong choice,” he added. “So, I would look for the things that we’re supposed to learn as individuals, but I think the country and all of us as individuals are going to reap what we have sown, and there’s nothing that’s going to get us out of that.”
Beck then spoke of God’s judgment in dire terms. “His consequences are eternal. And they are not judgments. They are promises. You do this, and this is what happens. You do this and this is what happens. We did that, so we’re going to get that.”
Beck, who was at one time such a hot commodity that he was featured on the cover of Time magazine has had an astonishing fall from grace. The bible thumping weeper had a hit show on Fox News before he abruptly quit to build his own media empire as well as a bizarre massive compound in Texas that brings back memories of Jonestown.
He is far from the only one who is still fighting the presumptive nominee. Mitt Romney and neocon kingmaker William Kristol are secretly plotting to field a third party candidate and a number of high profile RINOs have denounced Trump since he emerged as the last man standing. These dead-enders are only going to succeed in making something even worse than God’s vengeance a reality: President Hillary Rodham-Clinton will be sworn in on January 20, 2017.
