Glenn “Kane” Jacobs Appearance on Fox Business Networks’ The Independents

Glenn Jacobs appeared on the Fox Business Network show The Independents and he explained how he became a Libertarian because he was able to embrace issues on both sides. Glenn talked about the people who have influenced him. He was asked about running for political office. He says never say never, but right now, no. He says that as tough as he is, it takes a tough person to run for office. He might consider a run for office in the future.

Glenn is asked his favorite wrestling memory and he mentions wrestling the Undertaker at Wrestlemania & beating Steve Austin for the WWE Title. He was asked if there are any misconceptions about professional wrestling. He says that some people may consider wrestlers not the brightest, but he mentions that a lot of people have college educations and played professional sports.

Glenn was asked if other wrestlers may share his political beliefs. He mentions that he is an independent contractor & when you write a check to the IRS, you find religion. He says that libertarianism appeals to many because that is the way that they lead their lives.

    The fact is that with Libertarians, they prefer the least amount of government involvement in their lives as possible, yet when a natural OR man-made disaster happens, they’re usually the FIRST ones to run to the government BEGGING for help (good example of that kind of person is TX Gov. Rick Perry, especially after the recent fertilizer explosion in TX.). Plus, as proven by Rand Paul, they usually tend to be Republicans, which is ironic, because while they’re pushing for government to be involved in their lives as little as possible, they also want the government to restrict the reproductive rights of women, the voting rights of women, blacks & left-wingers in general.

    To be honest, I would almost say that Swagger, Cesaro, & Coulter do a better job of imitating (or maybe parodying) the Tea Party than Kane does of being a Libertarian.

    Correction: I meant to say that they do a better job of imitating/parodying the Tea Party than Kane does of imitating/parodying Libertarians.

    Watch MSNBC much? You don’t have to answer that. I’d vote for Glenn if he moved to NC

    Well, at least when someone on MSNBC says something wrong, they take responsibility & apologize for it, unlike how the GOP’s cable propaganda channel operates. I mean, when was the last time ANYONE over there apologized for ANY of the hateful stuff they’ve said?

    Besides, there isn’t really a good track record of people from wrestling ending up in political office. I mean, the ONLY one who’s had success was Jesse Ventura. So, I’m not gonna hold my breath waiting to see if Kane ends up being elected to whatever office he might run for in his home state.
