Doug Hoffman (C-N.Y.) Speaks To Glenn Beck

October 28, 2009

Glenn Beck interviewed Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman who is running for a U.S. House seat in New York state against a Democratic candidate and a liberal Republican candidate, Dede Scozzafava, who in the past has been endorsed by ACORN‘s political party, the Working Families Party.

Beck said

The Republicans have put their support behind a candidate who is pro-choice, was for the stimulus, has accepted endorsements from ACORN, and also for the Working Families Party, but, hey, you know, she has a chance to win, so who cares, apparently. The Democrat is basically the same as the Republican.

Beck introduced Hoffman as “a true conservative candidate.”

Hoffman said he never thought he would get involved in politics, but “quite frankly, I was fed up.” He said he was fed up with “the out-of-control spending, taxes, government regulations on us and businesses, and I thought somebody had to step up and do something about it.”

Hoffman also said he “didn’t like the candidates that were chosen, and I thought that I should step up and say something about it.”

The Republican candidate, Dede Scozzafava, was endorsed by Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the far-left hate site DailyKos, Beck noted.

Elsewhere, political journalist Michael Barone described Scozzafava as “a pretty dodgy character from a Republican point of view.” Barone said

I mean, this is a woman who was endorsed by the Working Families Party, which is basically front for ACORN … As we’ve seen, it’s an organization whose organizations have systematically aided and abetted child prostitution, as reported in the videos that Fox News ran — that other networks were finally forced to run, that Andrew Breitbart put on the Big Government website. There is some reason for principled Republicans not to back the Republican nominee in a situation like that.

    Michael Barone was being to kind. This is an example of Republican insanity trying to morph into the most reprehensible poltical party in the history of the country. The party of Jim Crow segragationist,Slavery, comunist abettersand down right kooks.

    The Republican party is going to have to make a choice–principles or not. I wonder if Independents are going to become the party of values, while the Republican party becomes the party of the free-market. Unfortunately, if it divides, the nation will swing so far left, we will never recover. And neither values, nor the free-market win.

    I’m glad to see Hoffman blazing a trail here. It’s time that the GOP took notice of how they’ve cheated their base. It’s been going on for years and we’ve had a ton of RINO or neocon leaders in the GOP. President Bush (I and II), almost-president McCain, and Newt Gingrich are all good examples of bad Republicans who push big government and support giant organizations, international financial interests, and globalism at the expense of American citizens. They have no respect for the Constitution so real conservatives like myself have no respect for them.

      I respect Bush 41 for his service to our nation, his one bad mistake was failing in the no new taxes pledge and then caving to the crappers. I respect McCains service to the nation as well but that is pretty much where it ends with him. I do not compare either Bush to him.
