Why Would Glenn Beck Want To Start A Revolution?

Reported by Aunty Em - December 21, 2010 -

In these columns I have often asked the question of Glenn Beck, “What’s the end game, my tee vee buddy?” My red phone has yet to ring. No matter. I think I’ve finally figured it out and it’s diabolically simple. He is trying to start a war. I previously described how he semi-sorta said someone on the radical left, close to Obama, might—and, I’ll be frank: As a political writer I get angry at even having to put together such an ugly thought—have him assassinated. The same article described how he semi-sorta said the time might be near for the military to pick up arms to defend the Constitution. And, I am not the first News Hound to suggest that. Ellen covered the topichttp://www.007.info/FactfileGF.aspin January of this year.

The Fox “News” artist formerly known as a rodeo clown, turned Right Wing Evangelist, turned William Randolph Hearst, someone with a vast media landscape who doesn’t really care where the spark igniting the war comes from. He just wants it to come. Two recent snippets, one from his tee vee show and the other from his Radio Drama Theater, show how he is actually trying to promote a violent reaction—from one side or the other—so he can sit back and watch from his gated community with his stockpiles of food, say “I told you so,” and watch the value of his gold deposits soar, just like Auric Goldfinger in the James Bond film.

The following diatribe caused Crooks and Liars to begin a recent article:

BREAKING NEWS: Glenn Beck is certifiably insane!!!

Oh. You knew that.

The above clip begins with what’s known in the tee vee biz as a “cold start” to the Tee Vee Conspiracy Cavalcade. Beck dramatically walked out to the ever-present, infamous, illustrated chalk board, and, without saying a word, dramatically wrote “The Revolution is NOW.” Only then did the opening credits play. He spent the rest of the time showing us how the Left has prepared for the Revolution and may already be close to having fully taken over the country in a silent coup. It’s worth reading the crazy:

BECK: Boy it is all starting to come together. I don’t know if you’re feeling this. I don’t know if you’re seeing it. I don’t—Sometimes I just don’t know. I don’t know if this is making an impact and you are doing your own homework. I think you are. I pray that you are. It is much deeper and there are things that I—I wouldn’t have believed any of this 2 years ago. But it’s never about one singular issue with the Progressives and Radicals and Revolutionaries. The Revolution has begun. I never thought I would say those words, but I understand that it has today. The people you’re up against have buried themselves in our government, they have been wearing masks for a long time, but they are about to take those masks off. And, I understand. They want control of every aspect of your life because the world is about to change. And while they try to convince you that it’s not, it is! And, they know it is! They want to control every aspect of life to make society more just, but from their perspective. I showed you last night—I told you that if, if I were going to take over the world, because Forbes said that Soros said of me that I was going to start some dictatorship because you’re too stupid. Two years ago, as I was trying to figure out how far along are they, I put a list together and this is just some of them. If I were going to take over the United States, what would I need? What would I need to do?

Well, you’d have to control the financial sector. They did it with the financial bill. They control everything in the financial sector. You’d have to control Health Care: Who lives. Who dies. You’d have to control industry. That can be done through the financial sector, it can be done through taxes, and it can also be done through bailouts. Just taking them like G—uhh—G.M.

You’d need to control the military. This one is really tough because the military is not going—they protect and defend The Constitution of the United States. Please. Dear God, if you are listening in any part of the world, and you are military, please dear God, please, remember your oath to the Constitution of the United States. Because this is the only piece they can’t get. Now, they can bleed ‘em dry, they can tire ‘em out, umm—

You know that yesterday—yesterday they just passed a spending budget? We have tons of money in it for new regulation. Who uses that regulation? Cass Sunstein. If you’ve listened to this show ever I’ve told you he’s the most dangerous man in America. Tons of new money for new regulation, but do you know that we just gave our military the smallest raise in the last 50 years? But all kinds of new money for new federal employess and regulations. But not the military. That’s how they are going to do it. Stress ‘em, push ‘em, stretch ‘em. And in, in history they have done it before—not in this country, but others—by just not paying them.

Then you have to grow dependence. You have to get people dependent on the government. Then you have to control the media, and control food prices.

Well, they’ve done this, this, this, not this, but they’re working on it, they’re doing this. They just passed the food bill for your safety. Remember, everything is done for your safety. And now the media.

Guys. I have talked to umm professors all around the co—uhh—all around the world—two in particular—but this is what they do. They study revolutionaries. They’re not fans of mine. They never have even heard of me. They’re eggheads. They don’t watch television neither of these guys do. I’ve been consulting with them—you think—I mean—There are talking heads on television and there are people who get their information from other, uhh, uhh, journalists—or that—

This staff works tirelessly trying to figure out what is going on in this world. We don’t like what we’ve found. But we found it. And both of these professors on revolutions say, well, umm, they gotta have the media. The last step will be the media.*

Now, I agree with C&L that if anyone came up to you at the local donut shop spouting that mouthful of nonsense, you’d call the manager over. However, the reason why we can’t just dismiss Beck as a harmless crank and need to recognize how dangerous he is another clip, from his Radio Drama Theater in which he pleads with U.S. Special Ops to wake up their neighbors to warn them about the upcoming revolution.

The whole Morning Zoo atmosphere of his 3-hour radio show is the dictionary definition of the banality of evil as he pits one side against another for the coming conflagration:

BECK: Have you seen on The Blaze there’s another Soros update. I know Pat was just watching at the top of the hour break. The Soros onstage while they’re talking about revolution in America.

SOMEONE ELSE: Hmm humm.

BECK: And I ask—

SOMEONE ELSE: Elizabeth Warren.

BECK: She’s the uhh, was the TARP Czar.

SOMEONE ELSE: Yeah. The TARP Czar. [laughs]

BECK: Now she’s the Consumer Credit, uhh, Protect You Czar. And in it she’s talking about “You know, there’s nobody that really oversees me—“

SOMEONE ELSE: And professor at Harvard. And there’s another professor at the University of Maryland here. And they’re all discussing—Well, we’ll play it for you.

BECK: Yeah. Revolution. We’ll do it in a minute. But they are all talking about revolution. Soros is onstage. And I said, during the break, has anybody ever heard any government official ever talk about revolution as good thing? Do you know why the Progressives are called Progressives? Do you know what—why they broke away from the Communists? Anybody know?

SOMEONE ELSE: [Like a grade schooler answering teacher] Err, yeah, because they’re evolution, not revolution?

BECK: [Like a teacher satisfied the lessons have found purchase] Evolution not revolution. They said Revolution is the wrong way to go because it’s too dangerous.

SOMEONE ELSE: Hmm hmm

BECK: You evolve into it. Well, they’ve gotten to the point now to where they are so convinced that everything is in their favor—that this thing is going to collapse into their hands—that they’re now openly talking about revolution. They’re now saying, “Just push it! PUSH IT!!”

Anybody within the sound of my voice that was a Special Ops person—anyone who has ever done any Special Ops for the United States military, you must inform your friends of the truth. This is the way it happens. Whenever we have been in Special Ops—When—if you’ve ever been—over the collapse of the Berlin Wall, or collapse of any other country, you know our Special Ops people are sent in at times just like this. And, what is the instruction? Be there to help pick up the pieces? And, push, nudge, just nudge it, push it. That’s what they’re doing. They know what point we’re at. And they know who’s hands it’s going to fall into, and so they are pushing it into revolution.

And, if you are into Special Ops, please, please, tell your friends and wake them up. I know you probably have. But it’s time to come out into the open and be vocal about it and tell people what we’re up against. Because nobody in the media is going to.*

Except for Glenn Beck. No one is crazy enough to promote a civil war, are they? To keep pitting one side against another, with ever increasing eliminationist rhetoric, until the feces hits the proverbial air-moving device? There’s got to be an ulterior motive. I don’t think Beck is certifiable insane, but I do think Beck is crazy like a Fox. Subconsciously he needs a coming firestorm to validate his world view—otherwise he might actually start to think he really is crazy—and, if he has to hole up on his panic room until the dust settles and eat through his well-packed pantry, it doesn’t hurt that his gold reserves will have increased in price exponentially.
