A few months later, when Trump tapped Bannon to serve as a key adviser to his campaign, Beck raised the alarm again, <a href="http://mediamatters.org/video/2016/08/17/glenn-beck-steve-bannon-quite-possibly-most-dangerous-guy-all-american-politics/212479">declaring</a> that Bannon was “quite possibly the most dangerous guy in all of American politics.”</p><p>Now that Trump has <a href="http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/11/13/501937200/trump-taps-reince-priebus-as-chief-of-staff-steve-bannon-as-chief-strategist">announced</a> that Bannon will serve chief strategist and senior adviser in the White House, Beck issued another warning on his radio show today.</p><p>Bannon wants to burn the entire system to the ground, Beck said. “He’s a nightmare and he’s the chief adviser to the president of the United States now.”</p><p>“Bannon has a clear tie to white nationalists,” he stated. “Clear tie. He’s built Breitbart as a platform for the alt-right. He is on record saying that. He’s on record defining the alt-right. He knows what it is. He is a guy who wants to tear this system down and replace it with a new system. He is a frightening … no, he is a terrifying man. A terrifying man.”</p><p></p> <!-- iCopyright Interactive Copyright Notice --> <script type="text/javascript"> var icx_publication_id = 18566; var icx_copyright_notice = '2016 Alternet'; var icx_content_id = '1067164'; </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://license.icopyright.net/rights/js/copyright-notice.js"></script> <noscript> <a style="color: #336699; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;" href="http://license.icopyright.net/3.18566?icx_id=1067164" target="_blank" title="Main menu of all reuse options"> <img height="25" width="27" border="0" align="bottom" alt="[Reuse options]" src="http://http://license.icopyright.net/images/icopy-w.png"/>Click here for reuse options!</a> </noscript> <!-- iCopyright Interactive Copyright Notice --> Mon, 14 Nov 2016 14:29:00 -0800 Kyle Mantyla, Right Wing Watch 1067164 at http://strugglewww.alternet.org The Right Wing Election 2016 The Right Wing bannon trump Ted Cruz Tries to Justify Trump Endorsement to a Furious Glenn Beck http://strugglewww.alternet.org/election-2016/ted-cruz-dressed-down-glenn-beck-live-radio-over-trump-endorsement <!-- iCopyright Horizontal Tag --> <div class="icopyright-article-tools-horizontal icopyright-article-tools-right"> <script type="text/javascript"> var icx_publication_id = 18566; var icx_content_id = '1064393'; </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://license.icopyright.net/rights/js/horz-toolbar.js"></script> <noscript> <a class="icopyright-article-tools-noscript" href="http://license.icopyright.net/3.18566?icx_id=1064393" target="_blank" title="Main menu of all reuse options"> <img height="25" width="27" border="0" align="bottom" alt="[Reuse options]" src="http://license.icopyright.net/images/icopy-w.png"/> Click here for reuse options! </a> </noscript> </div> <div style="clear:both;"></div><!-- iCopyright Tag --> <!-- All divs have been put onto one line because of whitespace issues when rendered inline in browsers --> <div class="field field-name-field-teaser field-type-text-long field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">&quot;Why not just cover me with a bucket of blood?&quot; Beck shouts at listeners.</div></div></div> <!-- All divs have been put onto one line because of whitespace issues when rendered inline in browsers --> <div class="field field-name-field-story-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://strugglewww.alternet.org/files/styles/story_image/public/story_images/glenn_beck_vegas.jpg" /></div></div></div> <!-- BODY --> <!--smart_paging_autop_filter--><p>On Friday, Ted Cruz officially <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/23/politics/ted-cruz-endorses-donald-trump/" target="_blank">endorsed</a> Donald Trump and the news <a href="https://www.facebook.com/GlennBeck/posts/10154578878363188" target="_blank">did not sit well</a> with Glenn Beck, who had campaigned for Cruz during the Republican primaries on the grounds that <a href="http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/ted-cruz-campaigned-gods-chosen-candidate-conceding-defeat">he had been</a> anointed by God to save America, and who has vowed never to support Trump.</p><p>Cruz appeared on Beck's radio show today to try and justify his decision and it did not go well for Cruz.</p><p>Beck grilled the Texas senator on what could have changed about Trump to convince him that he can now support the man <a href="http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/278514-cruz-trump-is-an-utterly-amoral-bully-narcissist-and" target="_blank">he once called</a> an utterly amoral pathological liar.

Shame on all of us," Beck fumed over being repeatedly told by Cruz that this election represents a "binary choice" between Hillary Clinton and Trump, outraged that on every issue, the only thing that seems to matter now is that you agree with the people on your side.  "Why not, if you won't vote for Hillary or you won't vote for Trump, why not just cover me in a bucket of blood?"</p><p>"Why not just shame me in the public square?" Beck thundered. "There is no difference between the two teams any more ... Which one is for the idea that all men are created equal?

"It breaks down all those natural barriers that we're supposed to have. Think about this: one woman sleeping with a man and she knows this woman living here sleeps with him too, how does she feel about that woman? That is not a relationship that fosters anything kind.

From the Founding Fathers, it's in the Constitution. Well, yeah, I know that. But where did the whole concept come from? It came from Jesus when he said to his disciples 'now, if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.'</p><p>I know, everybody says that was a metaphor.  IT WAS NOT A METAPHOR! He was saying in building my kingdom, you're going to have to fight at times. You won't build my kingdom with a sword, but you're going to have to defend yourself.  And that was the beginning of the Second Amendment, that's where the whole thing came from. I can't prove that historically and David [Barton] will counsel me when this is over, but I know that's where it came from.</p><p>And the sword today is an AR-15, so if you don't have one, go get one. You're supposed to have one.
