Back behind the mic, it seems the Fox-dropped zealot is still doing what he does best: scaring the ever-living shit out of his flock with Biblical messages of fire and brimstone. Beck on Monday said that if the American people are “so dead inside that they can no longer see the difference between good and evil” — aka re-electing a demagogue like President Obama — then “we have to be destroyed because we will be a remarkable evil on this planet.”
Why would we look at all history through a Biblical world view?!
Here’s the transcript, via Right Wing Watch:
If you look at history through a biblical world view, the last step before a nation is completely destroyed is they drive the righteous from among them. If this isn’t a sign of a group of people that will drive the righteous from among them, and that’s the last step before God’s wrath comes, I fear for our country and it is – it cannot be overstated, it cannot be called paranoid … If you are a God‑fearing person, hear me. Last call, America. Last call. Because the righteous will be driven from among them.
They are nasty, divisive and, I’m sorry, but there is no way to describe that quote from Valerie Jarrett other than evil. Warning: Saul Alinsky is just the beginning of these people.
But I believe in the American people. I believe that we are not too far gone. I believe that people can watch and see the difference. They can feel the difference. When you watch Barack Obama, you can just see he is angry. When you watch Mitt Romney, you can see he is not. We are not an angry nation. We don’t listen to demagogues like that. It doesn’t work. No matter how much power he has amassed, no matter how many friends in the media he has, Americans know. And if they reject it this time, if they’re so dead inside – that’s a possibility – if they’re so dead inside that they can no longer see the difference between good and evil, we have to be destroyed because we will be a remarkable evil on this planet.
Do you think Beck actually believes this stuff? Or is genius enough to realize that all he had to do was pretend like he believes it in order to embed himself in a slice of Americana that does who will make him fabulously wealthy?
