Are there conservatives/Republicans anywhere that are absolutely horrified their party is doubling down on the stupid?
Yes,but their voices have been drowned out by the likes of Beck. Little Green Footballs is an excellent example of conservatives who realize their party has been hijacked by these kooks. Here's their take on what you pointed out about Beck and they're in total agreement with you...... Glenn Beck, Idiot: Where's the Half-Monkey, Half-Human?

Via Little Green Footballs, internet and radio conspiracy theorist, 9/11 Twoofer, and all around moron Alex Jones accuses Glenn Beck of stealing his shit:



Meaty.

And then conservative writer Peter Wehner warns conservatives to abandon the Glenn Beck ship:

Quote :
It’s hard to tell how much of what Beck says is sincere and how much is for show. Whatever the case, and even taking into account the entire MSNBC lineup, Glenn Beck has become the most disturbing personality on cable television. One cannot watch him for any length of time without being struck by his affinity for conspiracies and for portraying himself as the great decoder of events. Political movements are not just wrong; they are infiltrated by a web of malevolent forces. Others see the shadows on the wall; Beck alone sees the men casting them. The danger when one paints the world in such conspiratorial terms is that it devalues the rational side of politics. It encourages a cast of mind that looks to expose enemies rather than to engage in arguments. Few things, after all, are as they appear.

Beyond that, of course, is the sense of impending doom, of the coming Apocalypse, of our world being on the edge of calamity. If taken seriously, this has the effect of creating fear, hopelessness, and feelings of helplessness.

All this is quite troublesome in its own right. But what ought to worry conservatives in particular is that Beck not only has the unusual capacity to discredit virtually every cause he takes up; he also confirms the worst caricatures of the right. What was true before is doubly true today. It looks to me like it’s only a matter of time — and I suspect not much time — until he blows apart professionally. If and when that happens, one can only hope that conservatism as a movement will have created enough distance from Beck to mitigate the damage.

'Bout damn time someone did.

Glenn Beck to End Daily Fox News Program
Quote :
Glenn Beck will end his daily Fox News Channel program later this year.

His departure was jointly announced in a statement on Wednesday by Fox and Mr. Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts.

The joint statement did not specify an end date for Mr. Beck’s show, called “Glenn Beck,” which has been telecast at 5 p.m. on Fox News since early 2009. Asked if Fox News had a rough end date for “Glenn Beck,” a spokeswoman referred back to the statement. Mr. Beck’s contract with Fox ends in December.

The statement was briefly posted on The Blaze, a Web site owned by Mr. Beck, but it was then taken down. Representatives for Fox and Mr. Beck did not immediately explain why.

Quote :
Surprise Is That It Took Fox News Months To Reach This Decision"
Washington, DC -- Media Matters for America founder David Brock released the following statement in response to Fox News and Mercury Radio Arts announcing that Glenn Beck will "transition off his daily program" later this year.

"After losing more than 300 advertisers and seeing more than 1,000,000 viewers abandon his show the only surprise is that it took Fox News months to reach this decision," said Brock. "Fox News now has to choose: will it eliminate all violent rhetoric from the network - not just during the 5PM hour? And will the network make a commitment to end its role as a political operation masquerading as a news station?"

Glenn Beck To Launch Internet Streaming Network, Charge $5 A Month For New Show
Quote :
Beginning on September 12, viewers will once again be able to watch departing Fox News host Glenn Beck at 5 PM, but this time it will cost them $5 a month. Glenn Beck’s company Mercury Radio Arts will launch GBTV - a live streaming video network, which will feature Glenn’s new daily 5-7 PM show, as well as other "original and licensed information and entertainment programming." The company claims it already has over 80,000 paying subscribers. Joel Cheatwood, the former Fox News Channel who joined Mercury earlier this year, has been named President of Programming for GBTV and will oversee Beck’s show. GBTV, which will charge $5 a month for Beck's new show and $10 for the entire network, will launch with two other programs: a six-camera simulcast of Glenn’s three hour radio show and The 4th Hour starring Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere.

At least on Fox he was on somewhat of a leash,although a pretty long one. I can't even begin to imagine how crazy he'll be on this outlet.
