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.”

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
