Beck: America Could Be Saved If We’d Just Listen to Him

Glenn Beck’s vastly inflated sense of his own importance was put on stark display once again on Tuesday when he said that a speech he gave in 2010 could have saved the country if only people would have listened to him. Because he speaks for God himself, dontchaknow.

“Have you ever seen a speech that hasn’t been given get this much attention?” Beck asked. “The last speech I saw get this much attention before it was given was 8/28.”

Beck went on to claim that his 8/28 speech would have changed the course of the world “if America would have listened to it.”

Sadly, the nation didn’t listen, Beck said, but he knows that he still accomplished God’s “desired outcome.”

“I do believe it did change the course with many people,” Beck said. “It had its desired outcome, I believe, for the Lord.”

Beck’s behavior has every hallmark of a wannabe cult leader. He speaks for God, he could save the world if only we’d listen to him, he’s never been wrong about anything.

    I’ll take “Megalomania” for $800, Alex.

    Follow me, and I will save you from Glenn Beck!

    Narcissism and megalomania rolled together, Beck doesn’t do things by halves.

    I guess I missed it. Did his speech talk about everyone dressing up the same, laying on a bed with your Nikes on, waiting for the mothership to take everyone to Comet Hale Bopp?

    Wouldn’t be the first time.

    The Mormon church has spun off around 100 cults.

    Most of them are pretty ugly. The polygamists used to fight wars among themselves. And two of them are notorius faith healing cults with a high child death rate.

    Wasn’t the 8/28 event Beck’s big “get behind the shield of God” speech? Yeah, no one fucking did that, Glenn. And nothing fucking happened.

    So, God’s desired outcome is for Beck not to be listened to? I can go with that.

    Beck’s behavior has every hallmark of a wannabe cult leader.

    Given how much money Beck’s raking in from The Blaze, I’ll say that fix was probably required.

    (It’s not that Beck is a leader of his own private cult, it’s that he’s one of many leaders in the wider RWNJ cult.)

    I keep hoping one day he’ll appear on his show dressed as the Angel Moroni, blowing a long golden trumpet.

    Allah is the one God and Glen Beck is his prophet.

    Someone had to say it.

    Glennie:

    “Have you ever seen a speech that hasn’t been given get this much attention?”

    If (this much attention) = > 0

    Then, Yes Glenn, I have. I believe an extremely large number of your speeches have not been given (this much attention).

  • jnorris

    Glenn Beck should be ashamed of himself. Mr Beck’s refusal to campaign for and win the presidential election is criminal neglect. How could he ever lose seeing how he’s a for real true prophet who talks to His God ™ more than Pat Robertson does. His stubborn refusal is allowing His God ™ to destroy America so the Islamistic Muslum terrorist win.

    Further proof fake prophets generate large real profits

    Well, we didn’t listen to him (most of us) and Amercia has been saved anyhow. Pretty sure both North and South America still exist fine geographically, demographically and politically. Ditto for Latin / Central America too and things really ain’t that bad, well, mostly, not apocalyptic anyhow.

    All we need to save America is Two turntables and a Microphone.
