Beck: Revolutionaries Will Murder You!

On Monday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler was met by a small group of protesters outside his house demanding that he support net neutrality. They even — gasp — blocked his car briefly. Glenn Beck’s entirely rational response: Revolutionaries are going to murder us all!

After playing a short clip from a video showing net neutrality activists blocking Wheeler’s car as he tried to leave for work on Monday, Beck beseeched the country to heed his warning that revolution is coming.

“I am begging America to listen to me,” Beck said. “Please listen to me. You are dealing with revolutionaries … Revolutionaries will come and they will pull you out of your car and shoot you. They will pull out of your office, your bank, they will pull you out of your plush political office, they will pull you out of your anchor chair, they will pull you out of wherever you are when they decide revolution is here and you’ve betrayed the revolution.”

“This is a harbinger,” he warned. “Wake up. Wake up. They’re playing by different rules. They’re not playing by all the rules you think they are. Wake up. Please, dear God, wake up before it’s too late.”

Gee Glenn, I thought it was that mysterious bullshit illness that made you sound like a crazy person, but since you allegedly are healed now I guess you’ll need a new excuse.

    I opened up for a Star-Spangled Red, White and Blue American Patriotic Patriots Take Our American Internet Back Rally for America (Beck was scheduled to headline), but the cops broke it up after one of the protesters pulled out a phaser. The Second Amendment doesn’t say anything about the Government being allowed to ban imaginary guns!

    Clearly, Mr Bek needs another few sessions with ‘Dr’ Carwreck*.

    The really funny thing is that Beck argued against net neutrality

    by claiming that internet service providers can seek to shut down his network by slowing down access to the content he produces, thereby making it more difficult for consumers to access.

    … which, of course, is precisely what net neutrality seeks to prevent.

    The fog has not gone away, Glenn.

    Hmm, the number of right wing talking heads in the US indisputably killed by left wingers, revolutionary or otherwise, seems to be a grand total of zero. More right wing crying wolf. (I say indisputably given the cranks who think Obama killed Breibart with his death ray, or whatever it was they think was used.)

    Yep, people strolling into stores with automatic weapons are just exercising their 2nd Amendment rights, whereas unarmed civilians standing in the path of a car are murderous psychopaths on the cusp of a Communist-Fascist-Muslim-Atheist revolution.

    Also, if you want ruthless Socialist Leftist murderers, how about those Clintons, eh? They bumped off a guy (some say dozens) without means, opportunity, or motive, made it look like suicide, and got away scot free. Damn, they’re sneaky. Just like JFK’s twenty-three assassins.

    “Revolutionaries will come and they will pull you out of your car and shoot you. They will pull out of your office, your bank, they will pull you out of your plush political office, they will pull you out of your anchor chair . . .”

    Yes, you complacent bourgeois rightwingers, the commie proletariat is coming for you. After all, the traditional color for communism was red, and it seems more than weird that the US rightwing has adopted it. Or maybe it’s just another indication of how profoundly ignorant of history the right is.

    But it’s definitely past the time when the progressive left needs to launch a genuinely effective counter for this bullshit.

    Are ‘anchor chairs’ those in which ‘anchor babies’ are conceived….?

    I’m confused. I thought Beck wanted a revolution to save us from the racist commie dictator he imagines Obama to be.

    I think Mr Beck’s claim, as with the vast majority of his claims, that he is cured of his brain disease is wildly exaggerated

    Isn’t the whole Tea Party thing supposed to be that they are revolutionaries?

    “I am begging America to listen to me,” Beck said. “Please listen to me. Wake up. Wake up. Please, dear God, wake up before it’s too late.”

    Reminds me of this: You’re next!

    You’re next!

    Sorry — this one works.

    “I am begging America to listen to me,” Beck said. “Please listen to me. You are dealing with revolutionaries …

    …And revolutionaries are bad, unless they are also failed secessionists.

  • lorn

    Read that again and notice he may not be describing people of the left, but rather people to whom he has advocated ‘second amendment solutions’ to. In effect he is blowing both ways. He is maintaining the fear for his loyal right-wing nut listeners, they are coming for your guns, but also issuing a warning to the left that they need to compromise now and get on the right side of the revolution.

  • dan4

    @15: “…but rather people to whom he has advocated second amendment solutions” to.”

    That was Sharron Angle, not Glenn Beck.

  • lorn

    Glen Beck has long advocated citizen ownership of guns to keep government in check. Which is the polite way of advocating ‘second amendment solutions’. Same idea, but less flamboyantly stated.
