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.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
