Glenn Beck became furious at the defeat of Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel at the hands of Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran. How furious? Well, he was mad enough to leave his own show to fire a gun–that’s how furious!
Beck was doing his show remotely from his ranch when he unleashed a rand about how Republicans in Washington are focused solely on the aggrandization of power and influence. According to Beck, people like ‘King Cochran’ are “doing nothing but playing a game holding onto their power.”
At one point, Beck had managed to enrage himself so much that he just needed to shoot something–so he took a break to fire his gun. Beck, of course, posted the video on his Instagram account in an effort to show conservatives just how conservative he is–and hopefully offset the loss on Tea Party support due to his open condemnation of Cliven Bundy’s attempts to keep his cattle on welfare.
Upon returning, Beck shouted, “They are more comfortable with the president’s policies than they are with Chris McDaniel! That doesn’t make any sense!”
Thad Cochran, who admitted that he has “done all kinds of indecent things with animals,” recently became the “better choice” when his opponent’s supporters conspired to sneak into an assisted living facility in which the Senator’s wife is living and snap photographs of her for a smear video. ‘Constitutional’ Clayton Kelly, along with a Tea Party leader and two supporters have been arrested in connection with the crime.
A Tea Party official, along with a McDaniel staffer and a representative of a conservative Christian organization, recently became “locked in” the county courthouse where ballots were stored, as well.
McDaniel is not going down without a fight, though! The Confederate apologist wants to ensure that he lost because of good, white, Christian, Republican votes–because he has a sneaky suspicion that he was defeated by black Democrats.
If either of these backwoods stereotypes wins in November, however, voters lose.
