Harry Reid: Romney has sullied Mormonism

It was just a few short weeks ago that Harry Reid was dramatically claiming Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes in over a decade. If true, it would make Romney a felon since he’s a millionaire many times over. Now that Mitt Romney has released his 2011 tax return and it’s pretty clear he’s paid his taxes, Harry Reid has decided to take a new line of attack. Is this one even worse than the first claim?

Yep.

Stu explained, "Harry Reid has been blatantly lying about Mitt Romney.  He said that he had false ‑‑ that he didn't pay his taxes for ten years because he got a call.  He came out and he said that now it's come out, which was just him bringing it up, and we know he didn't pay his taxes.  Now that his taxes have come out, he's lied again and now has changed his viewpoint to he's manipulating the system by paying too much taxes."

"He has a new statement about Mitt Romney. Harry Reid agrees that Mitt Romney has sullied Mormonism."

"Let me check myself before I wreck myself.  Have I ever said that about any other Mormon?" Glenn asked the radio crew, many of whom have been with him for years.

"I've never said that because I don't speak for the church and I don't speak for all Mormons."

Glenn, who was almost speechless after hearing the comments, said he was so shocked by the comments because anyone who knows the real Mitt Romney would know he is, at his core, a good person with good character.

"I never hold myself out as a good Mormon because I know really good Mormons.  And that's why I felt so guilty about Mitt Romney.  Because say what you will about his politics or whatever.  This guy is ‑ he's an unbelievable human being," Glenn said.

He encouraged anyone who doesn't know about Mitt Romney's character to watch the special he did on Romney a few weeks ago. It can be viewed for free HERE.

"This guy is a better human being.  I really believe he has the character.  I'm not talking about his policies.  I'm talking about his character.  I really believe he may have the character of George Washington.  That's saying something.  Coming from me, that's saying something," Glenn added.

The Huffington Post explained:

In a blog for the Huffington Post, Gregory A. Prince, a Mormon author and former Romney supporter, wrote that the presidential candidate had damaged the religion with his remarks.

"His arrogant and out-of-hand dismissal of half the population of this country struck me at a visceral level, for it sullied the religion that he and I share -- the religion for which five generations of my ancestry have lived and sacrificed, the religion whose official mantra is 'to take care of the poor and needy throughout the world,'" Prince wrote. "My first impulse was to rent an airplane towing a banner: 'Mitt Romney is Not the Face of Mormonism!'"

In a conference call with reporters ahead of Romney's visit to the Utah later this week, the Salt Lake Tribune reports that Reid expressed agreement with Prince's missive.

"He said that Romney has sullied the religion that he, Prince and Romney share," Reid said. "And he’s so disappointed that in his words, ‘It’s a good religion and he’s hiding from it.’"

"I agree with him," Reid continued. "[Romney's] coming to a state where there are a lot of members of the LDS Church ... They understand that he is not the face of Mormonism."

 

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.
