Glenn Beck on Bernie Sanders
I ran across this and found it interesting and refreshing.
Simple, be who you are but at least admit it!
8-3-2014 > Glenn Beck made a surprising admission during an interview with CNN’S Brian Stelter that aired Sunday morning.
Stelter, the host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” asked Beck about his sometimes controversial persona, and Beck responded by urging unity and recounting personal friendships he had developed with those who might disagree with him.
“I will make friends with anybody on any side,” Beck said, before saying something unexpected about one of the most progressive members of Congress.
“You know who I really respect — and this is going to come as a shock — in Congress is Bernie Sanders,” Beck said. “Never met the man, but he’s a Socialist, and he says, ‘I’m a socialist that’s just the way it is, I’m this close to a communist and that’s how it is and that’s what I believe.’”
Beck’s assessment of Sanders: “Good for you. I could be friends with that man, because he tells me who he is. If we can just get past all of the bull crap, and just [say], ‘This is who I am, like me, don’t like me, agree with me, don’t agree with me,’ that’s fine.”
