Free-range conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck wants to let our old pal One-L know that they are still friends, even after she said that Beck was only against Hair Furer Donald Trump because of the ratings. He takes to his mighty Book of Faces and passive-aggressively trolls her:
An open letter to my friend, Michelle Bachmann.
Michelle, as you can imagine, I am Terribly disappointed in your “speculation” about my motives during this election.
To speculate that anything I might do that goes against the GOP and its nominee,might be for ratings shows such a lack of understanding of the world in which we now find ourselves that it literally is laughable.
But because we know each other in “battle” like we do, and because those of us who find ourselves not “politically correct” in the way Stalin and his ilk originally meant the term have come under such life altering fire, I am not laughing.
I could speculate that you have abandoned every principle you have ever espoused, because you are no longer relevant and desperate to see yourself on tv.
But because – I know you – because I have years of watching you risk it all for the truth,I come to the conclusion that —- you actually believe that this is the best course of action to
Save the Republic. And that if you got something wrong – it would be unlike you to spread falsehoods.
It would be deeply insulting for me to speculate otherwise. Because I know you.
It is that simple, nothing more and nothing less.
I understand this and I can even support you in your opinion, even though I strongly disagree.
Please don’t destroy anymore friendships over clown show of an election.
It so deeply saddens me to see what we have become.
The world is laughing at us.
The left said that GWB made us into a country that no one could respect, the right has spent the last 8 years saying the same about this president. But in 18 months these candidates have done more damage to our reputation as a country than all of our worst presidents combined. You know it and I both know it. The worst part is, this time we aren’t hapless dupes, they see US cheering and excusing corruption, lies and behavior all of us know is grotesque.
The election is just a few days a way and we will need come back together no matter who wins. We will all sober up and walk the walk of shame as the world watches. We will need each other as we have split apart into so many small groups we are destined to fall.
But it isn’t just our disunity that makes what Abraham Lincoln meant when he said: a house divided against itself cannot stand. It is that the house no longer has any foundation or principled structure. If we do not return to the eternal truths we indeed will fall.
If I have something wrong, I will correct it. But, it is beneath you and me to speculate that I would say something for ratings. You, of all people know me much better than that.
I have always admired you, even when we have disagreed. I still do. I am saddened that my long record of evidence of my credibility that you have personally seen over the years is so easily lost.
I wish you the best and as always when it comes to the Republic; my life, my fortune and my sacred honor.
