NRA Now Investigating ‘Secret Muslim’ Grover Norquist Because Glenn Beck Might Quit
[su_right_ad]Glenn Beck threatened to quit the NRA if Grover Norquist is elected to the board because he might be a Muslim. And the NRA is jumping to make things good with Beck.
For years, Beck has accused Norquist of being associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, citing his past ties with Islamic-American groups such as CAIR, his prior attempts to build a coalition between conservative Muslim groups and the Bush Administration, and the fact that his wife is a Palestinian Muslim. Norquist also happens to sit on the board of the NRA, as a prominent and powerful Conservative should do.
Beck, a vocal supporter of the NRA, decided to take action: earlier this week, he publicly promised to resign from the NRA if they chose to re-elect Norquist to the board. “If this man is elected, or re-elected and confirmed on the board of the NRA, I may drop my membership in the NRA.”
While he said today that he agreed with Norquist’s infamous Tax Pledge, “when it comes to the Muslim Brotherhood and Islam, this guy is on the wrong side whether he knows it or not…I don’t believe he’s out trying to destroy America, but his efforts and his work will lead to the destruction of America.”

Eventually all the members of a corrupt organization turn on each other. It’s always in the cards for them. Once they run out of external scapegoats, the internal ones become the meat-du-jour. But Grover??? Easy pickin’s. Karma is such a bitch, isn’t it?

Good to see someone calling for a small, as in teeny weeny, bit of reform in this terrorist organization. They have a mental case on the board, a draft dodging pedophile on the board, and who knows what else.

Their members remind me of a lynch mob. If you criticize them or suggest regulations, the first thing they do is threaten you with physical harm. They especially like to threaten women and children.

In my opinion, the best Twilight Zone episode ever was ”
The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street”
The episode was an allegory about how an external enemy is not necessary to destroy mankind. Hatred and mistrust from within is more than sufficient. As strange incidents start to happen in a small town, friends and neighbors turn on each other.
In the end, we find that none of the townspeople were guilty of any wrongdoing.
Hostility and paranoia are such dominant forces on the political right. It was only a matter of time I guess before they started turning on each other.
“”Suddenly, the lights in Charlie’s house come on and he panics as the crowd begins accusing him of being both a murderer and the monster responsible for the power being out, and even Steve can’t defend Charlie, or what he has done. Charlie makes a run for his house while the other residents chase him, throwing stones, one of them hitting Charlie in the temple, creating a bleeding gash. Terrified, Charlie attempts to deflect suspicion onto Tommy, the boy who had originally suggested alien infiltration. Several neighbors agree, as Tommy was the only one who knew about the aliens’ plan. Lights begin flashing on and off in houses throughout the neighborhood; lawn mower and car engines start and stop for no apparent reason. The mob becomes hysterical, with terrified residents smashing windows and taking up weapons as the situation devolves into an all-out riot. Some of the residents take up firearms and shoot anyone they can.
The scene cuts to a nearby hilltop, where it is revealed the mysterious meteor that had flown overhead is, indeed, an alien spaceship. Its inhabitants, two alien observers, are watching the riot on Maple Street while using a device to manipulate the neighborhood’s power. They comment on how easy it was to create paranoia and panic, and conclude that the easiest way to conquer Earth is to let the people of Earth destroy themselves as their own worst enemy.””

Excellent choice. Honorable mention to “Twilight Zone” The Shelter.
A suburban dinner party is interrupted by a bulletin warning of an impending nuclear attack. As the neighbors scramble to prepare themselves, they turn against the one family that installed a permanent bomb shelter.

The original Star Trek was the same way, Roddenberry used allegory to bring attention to current events of his time too. I often wonder what would have become of Star Trek if he had had the backing of the studio?
All the filthy bigot states in the south censoring and banning the showing of Star Trek because of an interracial kiss was the last nail in the coffin for Roddenberry’s version, the first nail was the ridiculously low budget that he was given.
Millions of people benefited greatly from pop culture subtly forcing them to examine their ideals, both Star Trek and Twilight Zone provided a public service.

Trekkies seem to be a cut above.
Martin Luther King was a Trekkie: Star Trek and Equality.

Thank you for that.
I know Star Trek Saved my life, at 5 years old it made me want to be smart and grow up to go to Starfleet Academy, by the time I figured out in second grade that there was no Starfleet Academy, I had already taught myself to read and was on the honor roll for every report card.
I left home at 16 and put myself through college and avoided all the hazards that come with growing up on the bad side of town.

He covered his ass by saying he “may” drop out. He won’t, he needs the gun nuts to keep tuning in.

Great! Crazy Devils in-fighting….. Oh, hell, give them room and enjoy watching.

Now I understand what happened when gun control was an issue. Beck is strong supporter of NRA. Crazy tea partier trying to scare Americans that they may lose their guns. NOT what gun control was about. It was about getting guns off the streets. Guns that have no business in the hands of thugs whether they are black, white, Asian, etc. He is just another fear monger tea party nut who probably has the likes of David Duke and other Klans men as his best friends

Conservatives = small-minded bigots.
That is all.
bluejayray March 14th, 2015 at 11:27 am
In Beck’s case, a small-minded spigot.

Time to pull up a chair and grab some popcorn.

Extra butter please.

Don’t you just love the powdered popcorn salt? it sticks so much better than the regular salt…pass the bowl this way please. http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u138/Xiphan/Emoticons/popcorn.gif

Here ya go my good friend!

Yeah–they’ll probably find pictures of the Secret Muslim meetings Glenn Beck had with President Obama when they get ahold of all of Hillary’s Secret Muslim emails…
Herb Sarge Phelps March 14th, 2015 at 11:40 am
Will he do like Rush and not keep his promise if Grover is re-elected?
fancypants March 14th, 2015 at 12:32 pm
its getting hot in the ” right to carry ” kitchen and glen is doing all he can to part ways with the NRA
Larry Schmitt March 14th, 2015 at 2:01 pm
Because if he’s a muslim, he’s automatically a bad person, and if he’s a christian, he’s automatically a good person. What if he’s an atheist? A non-person?
FatRat March 14th, 2015 at 3:26 pm
A better off person. (smile)

The lunatic Mormon Glenn beck is worried about Muslims?..
Candide Thirtythree March 15th, 2015 at 10:00 am
Again, IKR? They both seem to have the exact same agenda so why is he whinging? He can put an end to this country twice as fast if he has help.

Why would you want to belong to any club that would have him as a member?

Beck threatened to quit the NRA if Grover Norquist is elected to the board because he might be a Muslim
But he’s ok with the NRA board having a pedophile who lived in his own excrement for 10 days to avoid military service (Nugent), and a mens room Romeo (Larry Craig).
So we’re done talking about what offends Glenn Beck now right?
Candide Thirtythree March 15th, 2015 at 9:57 am
Beck might be right about this, Grover has done everything in his power to destroy this country from the inside…but then again so has Beck.
