Beck Compares Cruz to Moses

Beck Compares Cruz to Moses April 11, 2016

Glenn Beck has apparently moved on from merely comparing Ted Cruz to George Washington — after all, he’s declared several people to be the “next George Washington” over the last few years — and is now comparing him to Moses. And the comparison is that God has called Cruz to lead, just like Moses, and he has a terrible burden to bear as a result.


Beck explained that he sent the note in an effort to offer encouragement because nobody knows what it is like to carry the Moses-like burden that Cruz bears.

“These guys actually believe it like we believe it,” Beck said. “Imagine being in a position to where you believe it, you believe the country is at the end, you believe that God is telling you, ‘Step up to the plate.’ You believe that you, just like Moses, may be slow in speech and not the perfect guy, but you know if you get in there, you can actually do something and you’ve tried to stay loyal. Do you know what that life is like for two years of tearing yourself apart, of ‘please Lord, just tell me, just tell me, just tell me, I’ll do it, just tell me.’ And the burden of I blew it? Oh my gosh, I don’t want to be them.”

This is why Beck cracks me up. He’s like an overgrown emo kid. Everything is just so emotionally overwrought and melodramatic.
