Glenn Beck is one of those conservatives making the absolutely idiotic argument that net neutrality will somehow end up silencing them (it has nothing to do with that, of course). And he says that if the FCC does enforce net neutrality — that is, leave the internet like it always has been — then America deserves to be destroyed.
Glenn Beck’s misguided opposition to net neutrality is well known and despite his record of being wrong about nearly everything, he spent a good portion of today’s radio program warning that if the principle of net neutrality is preserved, voices such as his will eventually be silenced and declaring that America deserves to be destroyed if is so stupid as to allow it to happen.
Nobody trusts the government or Big Business, Beck marveled, “and yet you’re giving Big Business and government more latitude! What are you, insane?”
“We deserve to be wiped out,” he concluded. “We deserve to be wiped out. If you’re this stupid, America, you deserve and somebody else is going to have to rise up and free you. It’s what’s going to happen.”
“This wipes out our voice,” Beck continued. “I’m telling you, the voices like ours will be gone. I promise you that.”
And hey, Beck is never wrong. Every prediction he’s ever made has come true. Just ask him.
