Listening to Glenn Beck speak is like Listening to Joe McCarthy play Seven Degrees of Communism; you know he’s just playing with himself, and he’s going to win in three steps or less, but it’s fun trying to follow the chain of logic. And this latest laugh-fest would be hilarious if this were 10 years ago, before idiocy like this started going mainstream via Fox and directly into people’s brains.
In this clip, Mormon Jesus — aka “The Flubber Fox” — gets from “monument closures resulting from the “Republican Shutdown” to “60 million dead in Marxist revolution” in three steps.
“They’ve opted now, now they’re putting a BIGGER fence around [the monument]. Now they’re putting armed guards around it. So now, they don’t CARE. Now, it is THEM inflicting the pain. Intentionally. They are spending money, the president has to pay for a group of people to sit around in a conference room and say ‘Where can we inflict the most pain?‘ And then, when it failed, they have to go back into that meeting, spend all that money to say ‘OK, now what do we do?'”
That’s a great question, Beck. Now what DO we do? All right, we’ll go with you on that one — Obama’s sitting around nefariously planning to inflict unhappiness on WWII veterans. He wants them to feel the pinch of the Republican Shutdown. But WHY, Glen. WHY??
“I want you to understand that you are now seeing what I told you about three weeks ago. I told you they’ve gone from ‘nudge’ to ‘shove.’…Your next step is ‘shoot.‘”
NOOOOOO!!!!!! They’re going to SHOOT us? But why would they do that Glen? Please, hand us thy golden tablets of wisdom, and tell us…WHAT’S THE ENDGAME HERE???
“They are into ‘shove.’ Every Marxist revolution/communist revolution always ends in millions dead. EVERY TIME. We talk about the Nazis ‘Oh, they killed 6 million Jews.’ The Soviet Union killed 60 MILLION. The Chinese, it’s estimate between 70 and 90 million. The Russians starved — STARVED — 7 million in the Ukraine. They STARVED them. Why? To teach them a lesson.”
Oh, those BASTARDS. How dare Obama starve 60 million people in the Ukraine!
Wait a minute…just to backtrack here for a second. “We talk about the Nazis ‘Oh, they killed 6 million Jews.’ The Soviet Union killed 60 MILLION.” So, by that statement, are we to assume you’re ideologically siding with…the Nazis. Right? Loud and clear, Glenn.
Also, hate to mention this, but there’s a bit of a non-sequiter between “They are into shove” and “Every Marxist revolution...” You do know that in order to play 7 Degrees of Communism, you have to logically connect things, right? Because we can see how a government could easily go into “shove” mode outside the context of a Marxist revolution. That’s probably happened in instances that didn’t involve Marxism.
Even so, Glenn is shockingly right about one thing, as evidenced here.
“This is the beginning of teaching the American people a lesson. ‘Don’t you screw with us.’ I am here to tell you: If you do not begin to stand and make your voice heard and very clear (and the way you do it is through the GOP). DEFUND THE GOP. If you don’t straighten up that one party, it will be too late.”
Indeed, Glenn…that is fantastic advice. And the fact that you offer it shows that you’re not the only person who can make predictions around here. We predicted that the GOP’s contributors were going to turn on the party and “defund” it a few days ago, just as you’re suggesting now. So…thanks!
Glenn, we know you love to make predictions. And we know that your listeners pay more attention to your announcements that YOUR PREDICTION CAME TRUE!!! than they do to the prediction itself. That’s how you hide all your failed prophesies and promises. Here’s a Top Ten list of your most spectacularly failed predictions…and how’s that “Shattering revelation” you promised five months ago? The one you said would “take down the whole power structure?” How’s that coming?
You are right about one thing, though, aside from just defunding the GOP. Obama is trying to let this Republican shutdown hurt people. A very specific group of people: the very retirees that make up the GOP’s single largest donor group. Sorry, Glenn; you and Fox can try to relabel this as a “liberal shutdown” all you want, but those closed memorial parks are going to stick to the Republican Shutdown like a Hitler mustache to a picture of Barack Obama.
So, yeah…make no mistake. Leaving those parks closed IS a lesson. A lesson to the Greatest Generation that the Republican party isn’t run by Eisenhower anymore. It’s run by the Tea Party, and that affects them, too. And they’ll be responding to the Republican Shutdown come election season.
THAT’S a prediction you can take to the bank.
