Grover Norquist does real damage to himself in Glenn Beck interview, five years after chalk board incident
Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 26, 2015
I hope you caught Glenn Beck’s Blaze TV tonight and Beck’s interview with Mr. Open Borders himself Grover Norquist (hat tip: Kelly). We have a large archive on Norquist the Washington Republican political guru and friend of Karl Rove who many believe (and Beck confirms) has a wide variety of questionable Muslim Brotherhood-connected friends.
Go here to Blaze TV and look for a replay. For a sharp Washington-insider Harvard grad, Norquist looked pretty wobbly. And, Beck had clearly done his homework.
Our interest in Norquist began in 2007 when he was pushing his ‘conservative’ pals (at his famous Wednesday meeting) to support an expanded Iraqi refugee resettlement program.
More recently he lined up a stellar list of Open Borders Republicans to push for more refugees to America generally (presumably looking for cheap labor for his industry clients). See our report here. His list of fellow refugee pushers included Jeb Bush. We only ever saw the ‘big’ news at Human Rights First!
In 2010 Grover disses Glenn Beck’s chalk board gift!
For a laugh…..
I wonder does Glenn Beck know that when he gave his famous chalk board to Grover (Americans for Tax Reform) after Beck’s CPAC speech in 2010 that Grover put it in a closet in his office and obviously made sure a reporter knew about that!
This is from Potomac Tea Party Report dated March 26, 2010 (exactly 5 years ago today!) and it’s a good thing I captured the text of the story from the Washington Examiner, because the linked article is now gone.
Here is a very telling little bit of information from the Washington Examiner yesterday. Seems that when Glenn Beck gave the keynote speech at CPAC this past February he gifted his chalk board to Americans for Tax Reform. But, after making a show of its arrival at ATR’s famous Wednesday meeting, ATR President Grover Norquist has since banished it to a closet.
The Washington Examiner (story no longer available):
Put it in the same category as those cat sweaters your grandmother would get you every Christmas.
Fox News pundit Glenn Beck gifted his infamous chalkboard to the Americans for Tax Reform at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference for use during its Wednesday meetings.
It’s the thought that counts, right?
“Every Wednesday in Washington, all the conservatives meet to decide what they should be doing in the weeks ahead,” David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union, said to close Beck’s speech. “This is going to be going to the site of the Wednesday meetings to remind us what we should be doing in the weeks ahead, and it will be put to use there.”
And just as Keene said, within days a courier delivered the large chalkboard to the downtown location of Americans for Tax Reform.
But was it actually put to use?
Well, it’s sitting in an audiovisual equipment closet attached to the conference room that hosts about 200 people every week.
However, the group’s president, Grover Norquist, isn’t exactly a fan of political talk shows.
I guess he still isn’t!
