Glenn Beck is Stuck on Repeat

Glenn Beck is Stuck on Repeat May 21, 2015

Right Wing Watch notes that Glenn Beck is repeating himself. In 2012, he predicted a landslide win for Romney but said that if Obama won it could only mean that Americans were “so dead inside … that they can no longer see the difference between good and evil, [and so] we have to be destroyed because we will be a remarkable evil on this planet.”

Fast forward to this week when he said virtually the exact same thing about Hillary Clinton:

“If she is the president of the United States, I swear to you, that is it, we are done,” he said on his radio program today. “You can’t have all of the scandals that she has and be president of the United States. That means the people are dead. That means we have voted for destruction.”

If you make a prediction and it turns out to be laughably false, you just repeat it with the next subject. And if you’re a wingnut, none of your followers will notice that the record is stuck. God hasn’t destroyed America because we elected Obama, of course, just like Ted Nugent isn’t dead or in jail.
