‘Glenn Beck, baby’: Deion Sanders comes out … as a Glenn Beck supporter [pics]

Oh my! Forget Jason Collins. This is news! NFL Network analyst and former NFL player and MLB player Deion Sanders met up with Glenn Beck recently and offered up his praise.



The pair took their friendship public on Twitter.






Twitter users are loving this double dose of truth.











Indeed. Mr. Sanders continued speaking his truth.


It’s always wonderful to see someone refusing to walk in PC-lockstep.


Of course, haters gotta hate:



Sigh. Stay strong, Mr. Sanders! Those who believe in freedom, including freedom of thought, have your back.

    Another Black man who seems to have left the plantation. At least he’s joining a really good group of men.

    • Orlando Cee

      Why not?

      Even professional athletes (of any race) have to pay taxes, don’t they?

      And as much as I thought Deion was a highly overpaid star when he was with the Redskins years ago, I’ll back him up on this one.

      • angeleyez

        Is Geraldo tired of Black athletes coming out as Conservatives yet ?

          How about Toure’

    • Elaine

      Many, like MLK’s niece, have always been Glenn fans. I’m sure there are many more.

      • Jill

        Not to mention the talent he has hired for his network. Far more diversity of opinion and skin tones than the monochromatic MSNBC primetime lineup.

    • Jeremy

      Yeah and if he praised Obama in a tweet then those same twitter keyboard warriors who trash him would praise him.

      • Lady 12

        The tweet, maybe. Not necessarily him. Learn the difference.

        • chewinmule

          No, no, no! Libs don’t attack the person’s statements in a case like this it gets personal. They go right for the jugular vein. That’s how you know you’ve won the debate

          • Lady 12

            I’m sorry, I misread the comment. I thought he was saying the conservatives would jump all over him for supporting Obama, not the other way around. My bad.

  • Jimni27

    Love it! It’s about time these athletes started coming out of the conservative closet. They could do more for the party than any actor in Hollywood, and I hope with him and RG, this becomes a trend. Maybe then blacks will understand it’s the Dem party that is keeping them down.

    • trixiewoobeans

      I agree. I know there are more that are tired of the slavery of the racist, hypocritical, controlling, mean-spirited and death-obsessed Liberals. Every time one steps out, strong and proud, it strengthens somebody else wanting to break free.

      • CDUB

        Another double like!

    • TN05

      Even if they are Democrats they can still moderate that party. It’s amazing how far left they’ve veered since the days of conservative Democrats like Larry McDonald.

    • CDUB

      Double, triple like!

  • NCRelite

    pretty cool!

      They woke up too late I’m afraid. I thank Jesus too, but sure am scared for the next 10-20 years of this country.

      No doubt, Barry has been very, very effective at ruining this country, our core values, constitution and free spirit. And he’s not done yet. Not by a long shot

      • nc

        It’s a painful thing to agree with you.

      • Leslie Ward

        Sorry – several simple things could be passed and have an immediate positive effect on America – such as Repeal Obamacare, a Flat Tax, cutting 90% of regulations, opening ANWAR and the Keystone pipeline, cutting out Obamaphones, cutting out Fannie and Freddie Macs, closing the border, deporting illegals and actually fixing Immigration, passing a Federal Conceal carry law, mandatory life without parole for 1st degree murder, overturning Roe v Wade. Need I go on? That is possibly the WORST problem that the crapweasels in DC are creating – the allusion that any legislation/SC decision is PERMANENT – no so, never, ever. Oh, damn I forgot one that would instantly change DC – TERM LIMITS.

        • noexcusespreach

          There are many black men (besides the courageous Deion Sanders) who appreciate many of the historical and socio-political truths uncovered and revealed by Mr. Beck over the years. Count me among that number.

          Beck deeply loves America and deserves a hearing among all who possess an appetite for truth, particularly as our nation is in rapid moral, spiritual, economic and political decline.

          There are far more black, conservative, Independents (like myself) out here than we realize.

  • Typewriterstreaming

    Total Courage.

    • Elaine

      Amazing that it actually takes courage to admit you are a conservative thinker with morals.

  • Bemani Dog

    Neon Deion gets called a “cornball brother” in 3… 2… 1…

    • colchak

      I was thinking that as soon as I saw the headline.

      • ZoriahShepard

        Me too. I’m still waiting for the obscene Twitter backlash that is sure to follow.

        • colchak

          Or for someone to come around and down vote a lot of these comments.

    America Is Beautiful @Whygetmad

    @DeionSanders @glennbeck Whoa! Sanders is a Beck fan? You go my brother! Woo, Woo! I can’t believe I am not the only black guy for GB!

    How sad is this that “America Is Beautiful” feels so isolated as a black conservative?

    Once again, we must look to the “ever tolerant” and “open minded” media for suppressing the truth in pursuit of their agenda. Must protect President. Must protect Liberalism.

  • Cruz2016!!!

    Stay strong Deion….the libs are now in rabid mode and will not stop…

  • algonquinmatt

    this is going to come off as sounding prejudiced, but i’m not surprised that Deion respects Glenn Beck. He has always seemed like a bright guy and although he was a flashy guy, he didn’t get into much trouble..except for getting arrested for fishing where he wasn’t supposed to be. Not your typical flashy athlete crime story.

    • http://twitter.com/CDChambers62 Chris Chambers

      Looking at the rest of the NFL and MLB players and all Deion got was arrested for fishing in the wrong place (even that sounds like a huge overreaction)? That is tame. Good for him hanging with Glenn!

      • everythingispolitics

        What percentage of professional athletes get arrested? Quickly now. Less than 3 percent. the original comment was racist, but is to be expected hear.

        • trixiewoobeans

          Oh zap! You’re the CRD (Closet Racist-of-the-Day). Race wasn’t even on their radar, until YOU came driving along! Consider this your CRD citation! Go pay the Clerk.

        • chewinmule

          Now that you’ve outed yourself, let’s talk about what crimes the 3% get arrested for. (crickets)

        • David Atherton

          Are all professional athletes black? You seem to be projecting your racism onto others. You assume that when someone makes a comment about pro athletes getting arrested, they’re talking about black pro athletes, but that is to be expected from someone who doesn’t know the difference in “here” and “hear”. Get lost, troll.

    • http://baldilocks-talking.blogspot.com/ Juliette Akinyi Ochieng

      Sounds fine. Yes, Deion always seemed different from the usual NFL/NBA sort. (The usual sort is why I stopped watching both sports some time ago.)

      Deion has been out and proud in another area for some time now: he’s a Christian, a *real* one.

  • Hal Fast

    Deion, is just an intelligent guy, and knows who the real straight up, straight talk people are looking out for real American’s best interests to protect the Constitution and our rights, and those who are not, that are mostly on the left, and about 40% of the right that are in bed with them too. Go @DeionSanders, and @glennbeck!

  • Randy C. Lindsey

    Deion, standing up for your Christian beliefs. Now that’s a real man.

  • Carey Hayden

    Maybe Obama will personally call in congratulate Deion for “coming out” as a conservative?!?! Not!!

  • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

    I’ll bet it was as hard or harder for Sanders to come out like that as compared to Collins.

    Good for him!

    • trixiewoobeans

      A HECK of a lot harder!

    • David Atherton

      The big difference is that the MSM can rail all they want against Sanders being conservative, but don’t dare make a comment about the mediocre NBA player who flaunts his sexuality to postpone his eminent demise. Deion had nothing to gain from Glenn Beck, but you know Collins just bought himself a multi-year extension with his claim. Nobody in their right mind would cut him loose now, they’d be accused of being homophobes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1519277518 Tina Sergent Seward

    This actually should be bigger news than Jason Collins coming out as gay . . .

    • nc

      Took WAY more courage.

  • Vicki Richardson

    This takes courage. The media has demonized Glenn Beck because of his belief system! Thank God somebody still has one! We all know the grief Deion Sanders will get for this. I admire him and hope that he doesn’t buckle under the pressure!

  • Rodney Brungardt

    The haters are going to have a field day with this, but that just shows that they don’t like the truth. Didn’t much care for Mr. Sanders, but got to respect him on this. Way to keep an open mind Dion.

  • 912er

    Yep..Deion will be bashed by the mob just like RG3,Ben Carson and others….The goal is not to try to win them back into the fold,its to give pause to others who might want to agree with them…….Do it and see the treatment you will get…now get back with the herd.

    • HWarrior13

      As more and more good people come out of the closet, it’s going to be like a game of “Wack-A-Mole” …but it’s tough to keep up with that game,

  • Hand of Doom

    I HATED Deion Sanders as an NFL Player, only because I FEARED him when my team played against him. Fear = Respect.

  • John Free

    ‘Fan’ is short for ‘Fan-a-tic’. In sports, as in politics you have them- must contend with them. I have held ‘Neon-Deion’ in High-Esteem’ for his athletic abilities, and his EXPLOSIVE performances. I have just broadened my Respect to include his CHARACTER…OFF the field. You have a HUGE platform to share your testimony, Mr’ Sanders- BE BOLD, BE STRONG, and BE-LIEVE…GOD BLESS !!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/660740555 Steve Runge

    Deion, I like you so much better than when you played against my Packers!

  • http://www.facebook.com/SeventhSojourner Michael Chapman

    Wow. I got to eat my words. I did a dumb thing. I thought wrongly about Deion. I am going to have to do some reading and find about about the real man. This sounds like great stuff. Always happy to be corrected and speak the truth.

    After he came out as a Glenn Beck fan, did he get a call from Obama?

  • Leslie Ward

    The more public figures that ‘come out’ as conservative, religious or simply not willing to be pc – the better. Because it gives us, you know The Forgotten Men/John Galt types – the realization that we are not alone. And to do it so publicly – what true courage. Love Glen Beck’s pokes at himself, such a great guy.

    • tryingtomakeit

      Yet a young beautiful Conservative Hollywood star came out against the Obama regime, and her husband and she were mysteriously murdered. Not at the same time either. Check out the documentary movie “Top Priority: Terror Within”. A legal immigrant went to work for Homeland Security, and after noting all the illegal immigrant MUSLIMS coming across the border…all at one time…and being told to let them through….she has been targeted as a domestic terrorist, and has been arrested twice and jailed. She is now suing the US government.

  • Nancy Stacy

    I am a school board member in Marion County Florida and burning the late night oil trying to figure out how to get black history TRUTH back into textbooks. Students need to know that had it not been for the black slave James Armisted we probably would not have won the American Revolution so would not be sitting here with this freedom of speech today. Please someone…hear me out there!!!! A black school board member in Palm Beach County refused to allow false Islam info in that county’s text books and that district made Pearson RE WRITE their World History books to correct those pages. Please, we must get the truth into our schools that black Americans were not victims but instead were heroes who fought for their freedom. Believing they were victims is beating black children down ON PURPOSE and we gotta teach them they played a tremendous role in what makes America so great. Thanks Mr. Sanders for joining Glenn because I learned much of this great black history through his teachings when he was on Fox.

    • truckee22

      It’s a tragedy that out ENTIRE nations history isnt taught in our schools today. That our kids are growing up with out knowing the good and the bad, the sacrifices and struggles of all Americans, regardless of color or creed is simply disgusting and shameful. Ask most people and trivial bit of American history and they will give you a blank stare. To forget how our ancestors, forefathers and fellow countrymen struggled for freedom and prosperity is spitting on their memories and their graves. Those struggles are an inspiration to all Americans and should be taught as an example of how our nations structure is truly is the greatest political and legal structure of all time. How men and women in our past have fought, suffered and died for our freedoms is a moving message and it truly makes me sad that so little of it is taught at all.
      Our educational system is doing a horrible job at educating our children at even the basics of our history and that is a crime.

      • Nancy Stacy

        I am not wringing my hands……I am working toward changing education and return it to its rightful place which is back to an education system not a jobs program.

  • Nancy Stacy

    I do not see my previous post?

  • Eric Hutchison

    God bless you Deion.

  • cvmagreek

    When you grow up and mature, you lose your childish ways. It is the way it is intended. Deion was a wild child, found Christ and changed, heart and life, it is a gift free to everyone who chooses. God bless Deion and Glenn, two of the hardest working guys in their professions.

  • Ben Bernanke

    Watch the tolerant left attack Mr. Sanders now for daring to have a different opinion. Every time a prominent black person goes against the religion of liberalism, they are deemed a blasphemer and must be burned at the stake, the same goes for Commiwood.

  • Frito_Bandito

    Beck? Truth? Hahahahahahahaha!!!

  • Mark81150

    I always liked Glen Beck, he’s funny, incredibly bright, and has a way of reaching people that most others lack.. Not a sports fan, so I have no opinion about The new friend, except he’s obviously smart, and a really decent guy..

    We can never have too many friends, especially friends who can maybe open some minds in the black community. Conservatives are about devotion to the Constitution, about loyalty to country and each other, about neighbors helping neighbors,.. we aren’t and never have been about race creed color.. it’s about heart.. If you’re an American in your heart, we welcome you.

  • $8528932

    Very skeptical of Deion Sanders.Saying that you like Glenn Beck is totally different than saying you agree with Glenn Becks views–so this news really means nothing to me.When Deion comes out and says he agrees with the views of Glenn Beck-that will be news.

    • tryingtomakeit

      What do you think TRUTH means to him. That is what he said…Glenn Speaks the TRUTH.

  • VirtualHybrid

    There are SO many black conservatives who are just afraid to ‘come out’…and I don’t blame them. I can only hope people like Deion will inspire them to be proud of what they know to be right. If a black man (or woman) knows their history, then they know democrats are NOT their friends, and never have been.

  • tryingtomakeit

    There are so many Black Conservatives! But FEAR keeps them from “coming out”. All those God Fearing Black Conservatives…Do NOT FEAR…God is with YOU”…Come out! Speak the TRUTH!
    In Charleston, SC, LuLu Colbert-Busch is running against a Conservative. Her campaign has been full of HATE. Smearing. She went to a Black Church last Sunday to speak…the congregation WALKED OUT ON HER! YES there ARE Black Conservatives in the DEEP SOUTH! God Blessed those Christians that day, for letting the Pelosi/Obama paid lemming know she is not wanted in the First Congressional District as THEIR representative. Abortion anyone? Then vote for Colbert-Busch! Anyone reading this in the First Congressional District of South Carolina…get out and VOTE! Don’t vote based on hate, or resentment, VOTE to save the REPUBLIC!
