A caller called in and accused Glenn of drinking the “Mitt Romney Kool-Aid” and let’s just say that it did not go over well at all. The caller, clearly pro-Gingrich, got an earful from Glenn over his statements. While he was a fan who claimed to have all of Beck’s books, he clearly hadn’t read or listened to anything Glenn has said over the past few months and years.
“I'm drinking the Mitt Romney Kool-Aid by saying that I would vote for Rick Santorum?” Glenn asked.
As the caller tried to say that Glenn went after Gingrich’s anti-Romney ads, Glenn told him those attacks were full of “lies”. And when he finally admitted to the fact that he was pro-Newt, Glenn lost it.
“Throw my books away. I've obviously not influenced your life at all. I want you to throw every book I've written, throw it away,” Glenn said. “If you haven't learned what a progressive is, throw them away. You never will.”
“Look, is there anything that's more important to learn from me, and if you disagree, then you disagree. But is there anything more important to learn from me in the last few years than the evils of progressivism? The evils of Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt and Andrew Jackson.”
“Because Newt Gingrich disagrees with me,” Glenn told the caller.
When the caller tried to tell him everyone had a flaw, Glenn told him to get off the phone.
“This is ridiculous. They all have their flaws. Have you even listened to a word of this show in the last two years about character making a difference, about the truth has no agenda, that you have to let the chips fall where they may; that you can't dismiss warning signs, that you have to take people at face value on what they actually do and say?”
“That is a guy who is an absolute blind supporter of Newt Gingrich,” Pat said.
