In Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday 4/5/14, Freedomworks hosted #FreePAC, a gathering of right and center right grassroots activists. The keynote speaker was Glenn Beck, who had strong words for Mitch McConnell and other republican party leaders.
“I told you at the very beginning what this administration tries to do you and what the progressives on the right, let me tell you something, Mitch McConnell is as big of a danger to this country as Barack Obama is. The progressive disease is in both parties. Big government is a philosophy in both parties, period. It is antithetical to the American system. Period.” … said Glenn Beck
Now that is throwing down the gauntlet. Glenn had the crowd on their feet several times, and, like Matt Kibbe’s and Matt Bevin’s speeches before his, the biggest applause came when attacking the Republican party leadership, or what many grassroots attendees refer to as “the party establishment.” A central theme of the day was “throw the bums out.”
