Two men with large radio audiences and even larger stomachs are committing radio treason on a daily basis. If you stopped listening to the banal ramblings of Glenn Beck and the migraine inducing yelling of Mark Levin, you probably lowered your blood pressure and are enjoying life a lot more.
Beck and Levin are continuing to find listeners and on air guests who will do their bidding. Namely, trashing Donald Trump. The latest supposed Trump mistake is telling a reporter that he would increase the minimum wage to ten dollars an hour. Conservatives are supposed to never increase the minimum wage. Except for the 1996 republican congress, right? They initiated a wage increase under Bill Clinton who signed it into law. Both Bushs increased the minimum wage, and I’m sure their new poster child for replacing Trump, Mitt Romney would do the same.
But according to buffoons like Mark Levin, you are supposed to use his radio show as a platform to complain about Trump or you are not a principled, Judeo-Christian, constitutional, conservative, living, breathing American. Levin actually chastises his listeners for not hammering Trump. I don’t remember there being any hammers or chisels or bean bags being tossed at Romney in 2012. Romney had a record – and much of it was liberal appeasement as has to be done in Massachusetts.
Donald Trump wants to appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court. Game set match. Beck and Levin should be lining up interviews and promoting the Trump family as the 2016 version of Camelot. But instead, Glenn Beck has Erik Erickson on his meaningless radio program so the two of them can brainstorm on air about hatching a plot to get Romney on the ballot in some deep red states in an attempt to deny Trump the 270 electoral votes needed for victory.
Glenn Beck seems far more concerned about Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton. And that is why Beck should have a full psychiatric evaluation as soon as possible. These men have become monkey wrenches with the emphasis on the word “monkey”.
Conservative talk radio does not have the pull it once had. You have to go back to the 1994 congressional races to find tangible proof that the very popular Rush Limbaugh had had an impact. All of the usual suspects sounded the alarm about Obama in 2008 and again in 2012. And nothing changed. Even worse for the likes of Beck and Levin is the fact they’ve split their audience in half by going against Trump. Limbaugh is now on the Trump train and is defending him each and every day. Beck has even chastised Limbaugh for not being true to “conservative values”. Beck owes his entire existence to Limbaugh and probably ought to shut his pie hole or he may lose more radio affiliates.
Even though these shock talkers don’t have enough influence to sway an election, they do give the liberal media more talking points. And the lib media does have enough influence to give this election over to Hillary Clinton.
So Glenn Beck and Mark Levin are both committing radio treason against the values that they supposedly believe in. It’s actually very simple. Get on the Trump train or lose the damn country for the next 50 years. The Supreme Court matters more than scoring cheap political points on the minimum wage.
These ego maniacal jerks can’t handle the fact that Donald Trump is his own man and has tapped into a strain of American populism that many thought had vanished. These radio shows are nothing more than propaganda for the Clinton campaign. That’s right I said it.
