Beck Once Again Declares Himself a Prophet

And yet again we are treated to Glenn Beck all but declaring himself a prophet, saying that everything he has ever predicted has come true and is continuing to come true. This time he’s claiming that Muslim reactionaries in Libya are going to crash planes into the Saudi oil fields.

For the last several days, Glenn Beck has been hyping the fear that terrorists may have captured nearly a dozen commercial airplanes in Libya, which they intend to crash into oil fields in Saudi Arabia in order to take down America.

On his radio show yesterday, he raised the threat once again, warning that if this happens “it is lights out for the Western way of life.” Beck went on to caution that while he is not predicting that this is going to happen, he does have a track record of having been right about everything he’s warned about for the last decade (or so he likes to pretend).

“I’m just telling you,” he said, “that all of the things that we have spoken about on this program for the last ten years … everything we’ve spoken about, they’re all now poised to happen.”

Does he really not think that we’re tracking those planes? The moment one takes off from the Libya airport, we (or Israel, Egypt or Saudi Arabia) would shoot it down.

    I know I’m gonna regret asking this, because somebody might answer – but what’s Yorick doing on Beck’s desk?

    It would be rather foolish.

    Libya is just a bunch of sand with a bunch of oil wells.

    If they took out some Saudi oil wells, someone might well take out theirs. And after that, what is left of Libya.

    How would they identify them? Even Muslins all look the same to Muslins!

    Beck, the for-profit prophet, has to come up with more scary predictions to keep the yokels sending their twenty bucks a month while he peddles gold ans survival food

    wikipedia:

    Although agriculture is the second-largest sector in the economy, Libya depends on imports in most foods. Climatic conditions and poor soils limit farm output, and domestic food production meets about 25% of demand. Domestic conditions limit output, while income and population growth have increased food consumption

    Libya imports 75% of its food. Without oil money, they would end up poverty stricken and hungry. They might even starve.

    A lot of the Arabs have gotten good at turning petroleum into…people. They have large and rapidly growing populations and import most of their food, depending on region, with the arid lands doing this the most.

    Without oil money, they wouldn’t be able to do this.

    Glenn Beck has been hyping the fear that terrorists may have captured nearly a dozen commercial airplanes in Libya, which they intend to crash into oil fields in Saudi Arabia in order to take down America.

    And the sad thing is that people take him seriously. That scenario is so far-fetched, illogical and incoherent that you couldn’t even sell it as a movie plot, but Glenn Beck has cleverly cut out the middlemen – he sells the bizarre plot directly to the audience, without even bothering to shoot the movie first.

    What’s the penalty for false messiah again?

    Yorick is probably wondering that himself. It’s an afterlife but not much of one.

    Pierce R. Butler – No doubt lacking in gibes, gambols and songs, not to mention flashes of merriment that were wont to set the table on a roar.

    (Not one now, to mock his own grinning, quite chap-fallen).

    And yesterday’s lunch conversation at work suddenly becomes much clearer. The only question I have is, “Now that I know where these people get their news from, should I avoid them or just relentless wind them up?” Decisions, decisions…

    That’s someone who ate a competing brand’s survival food. Trust your survival only to Tears Of The Prophet brand freeze dried food.

    This is so silly it doesn’t merit a reasoned response, but there are thousands of oil wells in Saudi Arabia. A dozen airliners couldn’t make a dent.

  • John Pieret

    Wait a minute! Crashing a dozen airliners in the Saudi oilfields would be lights out for the Western way of life?

    Anyone happen to remember a certain fellow blowing up almost all the Kuwaiti oil wells? Not only didn’t it mean lights out for the Western way of life (we had them all put out in less than a year) but nowadays, it would actually enrich America because of all the fracking we’ve been doing.

    #16 Winner.

  • Francisco Bacopa

    I was about to make the same point as #16, so I’ll just add this instead: Has Glen Beck ever seen and oil well? Large oil pumps are about the size of a small bungalow, and wellheads are the size of a car. Pretty hard to hit by crashing a plane. Tank farms and pipelines would be easier targets, but are pretty easy to extinguish, just turn a few valves and let it burn off.

    Francisco Bacopa “Large oil pumps are about the size of a small bungalow, and wellheads are the size of a car.”

    What? I’m sorry. I only understand area comparisons to olympic-sized swimming pools.

  • http://en.uncyclopedia.co/wiki/User:Modusoperandi Modusoperandi

    Wups. I only understand area comparisons to football fields. Olympic-sized swimming pools are for volume of large things. Silly me. I’d forget my head if I didn’t have something to compare it to (a bread box, in this case, even though I have no idea what a bread box is. I assume it’s a box made from bread).

    @1…it’s where Beck keeps his brain when he’s on the air.

  • birgerjohansson

    If you have read the Harry Dresden novels, you will know a spirit in a skull can have a rich, fulfilling afterlife.

    And if it sucks enough life energy out of morons who keep their hands on the skull, it might eventually re-materialise as a full human. This could explain why Glen Beck seems so shallow -he has had his mind literally sucked out.
