Beck's esoteric bullshit



Glenn Beck’s plans to usurp the Aug. 28 anniversary of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech with a “Restoring Honor” rally of racists at the Lincoln Memorial is just so blatantly counterintuitive it boogles the mind.

Beck chalks the selection of date and place up to “divine providence.” Yep. The date of the rally was originally set for Sept. 12, but Beck said he realized that was a Sunday, and he was “not going to ask anyone to work on the Sabbath.” (Except, of course, Jews since the 28th is on a Saturday.)

With all the personal honor he can muster, Beck gives this explanation:

"It was not my intention to select 8-28 because of the Martin Luther King tie. It is the day he made that speech. I had no idea until I announced it and I walked offstage and my researchers said, New York Times has already just published that this is [the same day as the King speech] - and I said, 'Oh, jeez.' " (LINK)

And, just a coincidence, too, that the rally will be held at the Lincoln Memorial? Mr. Beck, you wouldn’t lie, would you?

Telling Americans their president has "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture." Telling them to leave their churches “as fast as they can” if “social justice” is preached. Revising history. Establishing an online university to indoctrinate the malleable. Instilling phobias in his followers. All this for the sake of raking in megabucks.

Where is the “honor” in that?

Or, in the Beck quote which inspired this post:

"There will be absolutely no politics involved, This rally will honor the troops, unite the American people under the principles of integrity and truth, and make a pledge to restore honor within ourselves and our country."

Lofty words for a liar. Here’s one with a simple message:

Shame.

Of course Beck wouldn't lie, except when he opens his mouth. He and his ilk intend to create as much havoc as they possibly can, just like they are doing over the Islamic Center in NY. Guess that's not intentional either, huh? If you believe that, there's a lot of swamp land for sale in the deep south. Any buyers interested?

I've never known a high-flying, ambitious, malignant narcissist not to fall, but I'm getting tired of waiting for Beck to go Icarus.

You mean Beck has researchers? Lord, I never would have guessed it. What an insult.

There will be absolutely no politics involved,

.....except that Glenn Beck will be involved.....

This rally will honor the troops,

.....except the fags.....

unite the American people

.....except for liberals, non-Christians, people who accept scientific reality, people who understand economics, etc., etc., up to about 85% of the country.....

under the principles of integrity and truth,

.....both of which are notable for their absence from Beck's program.....

and make a pledge to restore honor within ourselves and our country.

.....which could mean just about anything, but given Beck's record, "honor" won't include anything that might prove the least bit challenging to the preconceptions of his audience.

You mean Beck has researchers?

Yes, and their research library consists of the collected press releases of Orly Taitz, Bjorn Lomborg, the Discovery Institute, and David Duke.
