Ron Paul supporters deride son Rand as a "Judas" over Romney support

Sellout. Traitor. Cancer.

Those are some pretty harsh insults even for the heated political climate of an election year, and usually such epithets would be reserved for a Benedict Arnold. But those were just some of the words being directed at Kentucky Senator Rand Paul for endorsing GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney – shockingly not from the left but from the libertarians that devoutly follow Rand’s father Ron Paul.

“I'm happy to announce that I'm going to be supporting Governor Romney,” Rand Paul said over the weekend.

And apparently the comment above makes you a Judas.

“There it is. And that is reason to have him burn in hell. Apparently, according to his father's supporters, that's enough to have to condemn him and say Rand Paul is a sellout, a traitor, a cancer. You name it, they've now said it,” Glenn said.

Here's just some of the highlights from some of the message boards and some of the posts on any Rand Paul story:

-Nothing but a Judas

-Burn in hell, Rand.

-Shame on you, Rand,

-You sold out on everything your father stands for money.

-If there's a hell, you will see it unless you can make up for your actions.

-Damn you

Wow.

“I think they say that with love, though,” Pat joked.

“Unbelievable. It's really truly unbelievable. I mean, here is the son of the guy you don't think father and son chatted about this? You are a supporter of the father and such a rabid supporter of the father,” Glenn said.

“ I don't understand it from libertarians. They are they're in lockstep. Even if Ron Paul violates his own principles and the biggest one is the earmarks in the 14th district. More earmarks than you can possibly imagine, and he puts them in. If he was against earmarks, he wouldn't put them in. But he puts them in all of the bills and then he votes against that bill. When he knows it's going to pass, he puts the earmark in and then his district gets all of that earmark money. Where is the outrage?”

“I agree with Ron Paul on a lot of stuff, but I don't agree with Ron Paul on everything. So I'm a neocon. I'm a danger. If you don't agree with everything Ron Paul says, even his own son is Judas.”

“If you don't walk in lockstep, you're done. You want to know why libertarians never win? There's your reason. There's your reason. There is no compromise. And I'm sorry, but we as a people are going to disagree on things. You've got to get the big ones done. And you've got to move in one direction.”

“You know what this is? It's the evolution revolution argument. If Ron Paul supporters actually meant evolution, they wouldn't be tearing Rand Paul apart. Because evolution means we're taking steps in that direction. Revolution is there is no compromise; you've betrayed the revolution. That's dangerous. That's dangerous every time. And don't take it from me. Take it from history.”

“It's strange how we are continually dividing ourselves and it's particularly puzzling from a group of people who have a hard time getting together because they're independent. They're freethinkers. And yet there's a portion of Ron Paulians that are not freethinkers. They just lock step with their leader. Even when their leader most likely agrees with his son. I don't know about you, but if my supporters were taking on my son like that, I think I'd take a stand. I think I'd say something about it. But instead people like Rand Paul will be called spawns of Satan, betrayers of the revolution, betrayers of the republic. This monologue will be vilified, will be made into monsters. Even though tonight I'm doing a monologue on the Federal Reserve and the central banking system is a total and complete sham.”

“ You don't win anything like that, gang. You only head towards revolution. Now, if that's what you want, well, then you can join the Occupy people because you think an awful lot like the Occupy people. And I don't mean in the government is bad. I mean in your lack of willingness to accept facts or differences.”

“There's no common sense, there's no deep thinking involved. You just follow your leader. Even though it violates your own principles. You just go with it. Why think for yourself when you can have somebody else do it?”

“Now, I understand this from the revolutionaries on the left. I understand following the leader because that's what communists do. They just follow the leader. That's not what libertarians do. They're skeptical of leaders.”

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
