Glenn Beck might have reached a record level of absurdity on his show today when he claimed that the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. closing because of the government shutdown was a sign that President Obama could be prepping for mass killings.
Without any basis in fact, unless paranoid conspiracy theories qualify as such, Republicans have been accusing President Obama of shutting down the memorial to prevent elderly people from seeing them. If that wasn’t bad enough, Beck takes it to a whole new level of insanity by saying that the closing is proof that a communist takeover is just right around the corner, and millions could be dead.
“Now, they’re putting armed guards around it,” Beck said. “So now, they don’t care. Now, it is them inflicting the pain intentionally.”
“I want you to understand that you are now seeing what I told you about three weeks ago, I told you they have gone from nudge to shove. This is another example that they are deep into shove.”
“Your next step is shoot,” he claimed. “Every Marxist communist revolution always ends in millions dead. Always. Without fail. Every time. We talk about the Nazis. ‘Oh, they killed 6 million Jews.’ The Soviet Union killed 60 million. The Chinese, it’s estimated between 70 and 90 million. The Russians starved 7 million.”
“This is the beginning of teaching the American people a lesson.”
And with a little imagination, we can come up with all sorts of crackpot theories of our own. We just won’t get paid the millions of dollars that Beck does. Isn’t America great?
I’d like to know who spiked Beck’s meds.
