On his radio program today, Glenn Beck was discussing the on-going saga of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who was not only caught smoking crack but also ranting wildly and threatening to murder some unknown target, which prompted Beck to start screaming that, despite all of this, "Canada still has higher standards than we do!"
Beck is furious that Canadians are demanding that Ford resign while Americans are not demanding that President Obama leave office, saying that "at least their guy hasn't actually killed people! Our guy is flying drones over, like 'yeah, go ahead, hit 'em, take 'em out."
"If the Western World is so corrupt internally," Beck said "that we just sit there and take it and say 'well, there's nothing really we can do so we'll just sit here and take it,' well then we really have lost."
He continued to lament that, as a society, we have come to tolerate and embrace wholesale corruption, as demonstrated by the recent elections of Bill de Blasio as Mayor of New York City and Terry McAuliffe as Governor of Virginia, saying it signals "the end of the Western way of life as we know it."
As such, Beck called upon "good men and women need to gather together, buckle down for a storm and stand as one":
