A deranged Glenn Beck argues God had to kill Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to promote the presidential candidacy of Ted Cruz.
Beck said that Scalia’s death was all part of God’s plan. Unable to host his radio program on Tuesday because he was on the road campaigning for Cruz, Beck did find time to call in and offer his theory about why God allowed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to die so close to the next presidential election.
Pretending to be the mind of God, Beck opined:
I just woke the American people up. I took them out of the game show moment and woke enough of them up to say, ‘look at how close your liberty is to being lost. You now have lost your liberty. You replace one guy and you now have 5-4 decisions in the other direction. Just with this one guy, you’ve lost your liberty so you’d better elect somebody that is going to be somebody on [the court] because for the next 30 years, if you don’t, the Constitution as you know it [is gone].’
The Constitution is hanging by a thread! That thread has just been cut and the only way that we survive now is if we have a true constitutionalist.
In short, Beck believes God killed Scalia in order to motivate Americans to vote for Ted Cruz so the Supreme Court can maintain a conservative majority, which it would have had, if God had only kept Scalia alive in the first place.
Obviously, the Christian extremists aren’t kidding when they say:
God works in mysterious ways…
Beck’s wacky conspiracy theory is but one of several conspiracy theories being spread by Christian conservatives finding mystery and intrigue in the mundane death of an old man. In fact, some gullible Christian conservatives believe Justice Scalia was murdered by President Barack Obama as a human sacrifice to mark the pagan festival of Lupercalia.
And the beat goes on…
