    Beck: LaPierre, National Rifle Association investigates board member Grover Norquist.

    Glenn Beck Makes Big Announcement About the NRA and Grover Norquist, Mar. 13, 2015
    Glenn Beck said Friday that NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre told him the organization is opening an ethics investigation into Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform.

    “Two days ago I was on the air and I brought up Grover Norquist,” Beck explained on his radio program. “He’s a board member on the NRA, and he’s running for re-election. And I said something then that I meant then and I mean now — that if Grover Norquist remains on the board of the NRA, I don’t believe that I can remain a member of the NRA.”

    Glenn Beck and the Republican problem
    Mr. Beck recently told the National Rifle Association that he would resign from that organization if Grover Norquist was re-elected to the NRA Board. Mr. Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform, has been frequently criticized for close ties to Islamist figures.

    Considering the apparent numbers of members and readers here, it's surprising not to have read of this previously.

    Glenn Beck Presents ‘Just the Beginning’ of Why You Need to Pay Attention to Grover N

    “Glenn, I think most people who know Grover only as a prominent anti-tax guy in the conservative movement would find that statement unbelievable, and to be honest with you I would’ve, but for the fact that I saw it first-hand as a result of sharing office space for what I think of seven biblically long years with Grover Norquist,” Gaffney remarked. “I saw terrorists in his office space. I had colleagues come to me and say, ‘You know there’s a Muslim Brotherhood front operating out of his office suite?’”

    “It was called the Islamic Free Market Foundation, or Institute,” Gaffney continued, saying it is more commonly known as simply the Islamic Institute. “This was an operation that was created by a man who’s now serving time in federal prison for terrorism by the name Abdurahman Alamoudi.”

    first of all, it is Beck~ looking for notoriety and ratings! (what better than the evil nra!)
    second, let's not try someone in the media
    third, guilty by association doesn't make a case
    fourth, when judged by his peers then I will become excited.

    For all their blow, the NRA does an exceedingly effective job of remaining neutral and ineffective.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their

    Looking for ratings does not make the allegations false.
    Mr.Grove could file a defamation/liable suit to prove his "innocence."
    Well, the feds use the guilt by association routinely where terror(ists) is(are) concerned.
    Whose peers? If Mr. Beck is correct, I suspect that having the Mooj judge other Mooj is not what you meant, though I could be misunderstanding what you mean.
