Glenn Beck Warns Obama Is About To Snap, Will Start Putting Conservatives Into Internment Camps

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck warned that too many crises are piling up all at the same time which will cause the press to finally turn on President Obama. That, in turn, will cause Obama to finally snap and start rounding up conservatives and putting them into camps.

Just as German society demonized Jews for years before the Nazis took power, Beck warned that this nation "has been watering some seeds" for nearly ten years to condition Americans to accept that "there are those enemies of the president that need to be punished."

Once the press turns on Obama, Beck warned, he "is not going to react well" because he has been coddled his entire life and was always treated like a god who was never to be criticized or questioned. 

Saying that Obama is like a spoiled child who is about to be told that he doesn't get a trophy just for participating, Beck predicted that Obama would respond by lashing out furiously at conservatives and putting them into internment camps.

"If you couple that [sense of entitlement] with power," he stated, "you're in trouble":

David Brat Says Liberals Are 'Nervous' About Countries 'Feeding Their People,' Claims Win 'Came Straight Out Of Heaven'

Glenn Beck, who only recently began promoting economics professor David Brat’s primary campaign against Eric Cantor, hosted Brat on his radio show today to discuss his unexpected victory and purported media attacks.

After insisting that he is not a far-right candidate since he is part of the “compassionate party,” Brat said that progressives are getting worried about falling hunger in developing countries: “China and India are feeding their people in the first time in human history due to free markets and the left knows that and it gets them nervous.”

In another interview with American Family Association radio host Dan Celia, who said his win was the work of God and conservative talk radio hosts, Brat claimed his victory “came straight out of Heaven.”

He similarly told Fox News that “God acted through people on my behalf” in his primary victory.

Glenn Beck's Lawyers Argue That His Attacks On Boston Marathon Bombing Victim Were Protected By First Amendment

Earlier this year, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi sued Glenn Beck for defamation over the fact that Beck had dedicated several days of radio and television programming to alleging that Alharbi, who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing, was actually an al Qaeda "control agent" and "money man" who had financed the bombing and recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry it out.

None of that was true and so Alharbi sued Beck, seeking "punitive damages for defamation with malice." Now, Beck's lawyers have responded to the suit by arguing that it should be dismissed on the grounds that Alharbi was a "public figure" and that Beck's attacks on him were protected by the First Amendment:

Radio host Glenn Beck says in a recent legal filing that his on-air remarks inaccurately linking a Saudi Arabian student to the Boston Marathon bombings were protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution and that a federal judge should dismiss a libel case the student brought against Beck and his employers.

...

Beck's lawyers, in their recent filing in U.S. District Court for Boston, don't question Alharbi's innocence. But they argue that courts have set a high standard for libel in similar cases and that Alharbi's grievances fall short of that standard.

The talk show host's lawyers argue that to prevail in court against their client, Alharbi would have to prove "actual malice," including that Beck deliberately made false accusations against Alharbi.

Beck's lawyers also argue that the radio host's remarks were Constitutionally-protected criticism of the government's handling of national security. And they argue that Alharbi became a public figure in the days after the bombings, a designation that raises the bar for a libel claim.

'We Are All Faceless': Glenn Beck Explains The Slender Man Phenomenon

Earlier this month, two young girls allegedly stabbed their friend nineteen times in an effort to please an internet urban legend known as Slender Man. Predictably, Glenn Beck was very alarmed by this since everything that ever happens always bears some deep social significance and must be taken as a sign that our culture is deeply sick and on the verge of collapse. As such, Beck and his staff have becomes obsessed with the story and are on the lookout for other possible Slender Man related crimes, such as an alleged attack carried out by another young girl on her mother earlier this week.

Beck and his staff discussed the Slender Man phenomenon during yesterday's morning meeting where Beck diagnosed the problem as being rooted in the fact that people are just desperately trying to fill the holes in their empty souls with things like this.

"We're starving to death," Beck lectured his staff in a very world-weary manner. "Slender Man is filling a hole in people's lives and what's going to happen is people are going to start talking more and more about Slender Man and more and more people will go in and try to fill that hole with Slender Man because it's new and it's exciting and it's different and it's kind of on the edge."

"We are all faceless," Beck said. "We're all worried that we're being sucked into these woods, that we have no idea what's in there":

Beck Warns Wave Of Immigrant Children Will Create Israeli/Palestinian-Type Conflict In America

On last night's television program, Glenn Beck asserted that President Obama was "directly responsible" for the waves of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children who have crossed the U.S.-Mexican border so far this year, saying that Obama's announcement in 2012 that the Department of Homeland Security would temporarily halt the deportation of children who were brought into this country illegally by their parents was code to parents in Latin America to start sending their kids to the United States in order to overwhelm the system so that Obama could then use it in his effort to pass immigration reform and amnesty.

On his radio show today, Beck expanded upon this theory, declaring that this flood of children will result in an Israeli/Palestinian-like crisis here in America by creating permanent camps along the border and then using the existence of these camps to eventually press for the United States to hand Arizona back to Mexico.

"What are they doing to our border? They are making camps," Beck said. "I’m warning you right now, mark my words: If it lasts five to 10 years, they will say exactly the same thing. ‘You know what? We should give them their own state. We should give them Arizona. We took it from them in the first place. That’s land that we stole from Mexico.’"

"You mark my words: It’s coming," he continued. "They are making a Palestinian plea, and you’re watching the beginnings of it right now. Mark my words: That’s going to go all over today, and everybody is going to call me crazy. Whatever":

Beck: Obama Is Fomenting Revolution By Making The Tea Party Feel Invisible

During his morning staff meeting yesterday, Glenn Beck once again lectured his staff about how President Obama is intentionally fomenting revolution in this country by intentionally ignoring the Tea Party and making them feel invisible.

"You have revolution when people feel invisible," Beck said. "When people feel invisible, they go for their guns. That is exactly what [President Obama] is doing."

Saying that while Obama is elevating gays and thugs and radicals and illegal immigrants, he is systematically telling Tea Party activists that they don't matter and dismissing their concerns.

"This government has taken a group of people," Beck proclaimed, "and diminished them and given them the Harry Potter cloak of invisibility":

Beck: 'We Are Now The Radicals, We Are Now The Revolutionaries'

On his television program tonight, Glenn Beck will be interviewing the controversial street artist known as "Sabo," who is perhaps best known for his poster of Sen. Ted Cruz covered in tattoos and his poster depicting Texas state Senator Wendy Davis as an "abortion Barbie."

Beck will be interviewing Sabo because, as he explained on his radio program today, "we are now the revolutionaries" and need learn how to "short-circuit" the system through the culture in the manner that Sabo has been doing.

"We are now the radicals," Beck told his audience. "We are now the revolutionaries and we have to start thinking that way. We have to start looking for ways to short-circuit things because what we're doing is we're relying on the system. Well, the system is now geared against us. We are in the Martin Luther King position and Barack Obama is the one in the J. Edgar Hoover role.  You can't out J. Edgar Hoover J. Edgar Hoover.  You can't Nixon Nixon. You have to think differently":

Glenn Beck Is A Paragon Of Consistency: 'We Need To Live Side By Side'

Upset by the news that a Christian bakery in Colorado has decided to stop offering wedding cakes rather than provide cakes to gay couples in compliance with the state's anti-discrimination law, Glenn Beck wondered why we all can't just get along and learn to live together.

"We must, in the end, be able to live side by side," Beck said in defending the baker's right to refuse to serve gay customers. "We are dividing ourselves in every possible way and it's being done intentionally. Nope, the Republicans have to live over here, the conservatives over here and the liberals and then the progressives, and then we have the gay people who live over here and the straight people who live over here and these people can run businesses and these people can't."

"We need to live side by side," Beck preached. "Diversity is actually a good thing."

Allow us to remind everyone that this is the same Glenn Beck who, just last year, laid out his grandiose vision for a massive $2 billion libertarian compound called Independence Park in which only like-minded people would be allowed to live and only like-minded businesses could operate.

This is also the same Glenn Beck who, the day after President Obama was re-elected, openly encouraged his listeners to buy farmland and to literally move away from their neighbors if they did not share their values and "find a place where you are surrounded by like-minded people" by looking "at the maps on how counties voted":

Beck: God Prompted Me To Investigate Van Jones

On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck raised the alarm about reports that the Department of Justice will relaunch a task force responsible for investigating threats posed by domestic terrorism, saying that while he has absolutely no evidence to justify his concern at the moment, he does have a gut feeling that it is very dangerous.

And we can trust his gut feeling about this, Beck reminded his viewers, because he had the same gut feeling about Van Jones and was prompted by God to begin investigating him after hearing his name mentioned in a staff meeting.

"I really don't know how we figured out Van Jones," Beck said. "That was not from man, I really don't think."

Beck says he simply heard Jones' name and somehow immediately knew to instruct his staff begin to investigate Jones and ties to Hurricane Katrina, which led to Beck's amazing discovery that Jones and ACORN were responsible for the failure of the levees in New Orleans during the hurricane in order to wipe out all the records and cover up their massive corruption.

Obviously, given that record of accuracy, we should all be very alarmed by Beck's gut feeling about these new reports as well:

Glenn Beck Explains How Keurig Freed Us From Our Collectivist Coffee Nightmare

Once upon a time, office workers all had to drink the same coffee and those were dark days of communism and government oppression. Then along came companies like Keurig, offering the ability to brew cups of coffee one at a time in a variety of flavors and thus, the free market was born.

At least that seems to be the history lesson delivered by Glenn Beck last night on his television show as he recounted how office kitchens used to simply have one coffee pot from which everyone got their coffee, compared to today where most offices have machines that allow individuals to brew the drink of their personal choice.

Pointing to the array of options his company offers its employees, Beck said "you can have any of these or we could go back to the collectivist and you can have this really crappy instant coffee that just has a flavor that everybody kind of tolerates and kind of likes."

"This is the free market," Beck said, which apparently did not even exist until the invention of individual coffee options around the beginning of this century:

Another Lesson From Glenn Beck: 'We're In A Perpetual State Of Tomorrowland'

Every few months, Glenn Beck goes off on an incoherent stream-of-consciousness monologue as his co-hosts and staff just sit there silently, having no idea what on earth he is talking about.

He did so once again during yesterday's morning meeting when he began hectoring his staff about the need "look at the future as the planet" as he explained the importance of constantly designing everything they do in light of the coming future because "we're in a perpetual state of Tomorrowland."

"Tomorrowland doesn't exist," Beck told his befuddled staff. "It's in your mind ... That's what the world's going to be like. Everything we do is going to look like Tomorrowland."

Somehow, that morphed into a lecture about how government and religion have "destroyed the trust we have with each other" but that is not something anyone should worry about because God exists and Silicon Valley is working to "free us faster than the government can enslave us."

"I'm putting my money on Silicon Valley, because it's the only place you can put your money," Beck said. "Put it on God and Silicon Valley. Period":

Beck: Bergdahl Release Just A Ploy By Obama ''To Get Everybody To Stop Talking About The VA'

When former CIA Director David Petraeus resigned from office back in 2012 following revelations that he had engaged in an extramarital affair, Glenn Beck knew that the entire thing had been orchestrated in order to discredit the military and distract from coverage of the attack on Benghazi.

Last year, when allegations broke that the IRS had inappropriately targeted conservative political organizations and that the Department of Justice had obtained phone records of Associated Press reporters and editors, Beck was positive that those were also attempts to draw attention away from Benghazi.

On his radio broadcast today, Beck switched things up a bit when it came to discussing the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl as he declared not that it was an effort to distract from Benghazi, but rather an effort by President Obama to distract the media from the VA scandal.

Obama "was starting to look very, very weak because of the VA," Beck said, and so "the only reason why this happened is because the President is trying to get the VA off of the front page of the newspapers. That's all he's doing. He's just trying to get everybody to stop talking about the VA":

Beck: It Is Becoming A Badge Of 'Eternal Dishonor' To Be An American Citizen

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck delivered a passionate monologue over the plight of Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who is facing execution for refusing to renounce her Christian faith and convert to Islam.

Beck is furious that the United States government is not doing enough to rescue Ibrahim, who is the wife of an American citizen as well as a new mother, declaring that this nation has gone "so dead inside" that it is now becoming "a badge of global and possibly eternal dishonor" to be an American citizen.

"What is it that you believe in?" Beck challenged his audience, telling them that they had better figure it out because the days of being beaten and locked in prison are already upon them.

"If you don't feel it yet, you will very soon," he said. "You're going to be thrown up against the wall and thrown up against the wall and thrown up against the wall, you might even get a billy club to the head, they might open up a fire hose on ya. If you're lucky they'll sic the dogs on ya. You might find yourself going into a camp, you might find yourself chained to a floor, you might find yourself being told 'you must do this, you must say these things or not say these things and we'll just leave you alone.' And if you think I'm crazy, read the newspaper. It's happening already":

Paranoia-Rama: End Of The First Amendment, Liberals Promoting Child Rape, Gay Marriage To Blame For Shooting

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

As the Radical Right continues its never-ending quest to stoop to new lows, this week conservative activists and Republican politicians claimed that progressives are sanctioning rape, planning to scrap the First Amendment and causing mass shootings by supporting marriage equality.

5) First Amendment About To Be Repealed

It seems that Ted Cruz isn’t even trying to pretend that he is anything more than a shameless con artist. The Texas senator told a summit of Religious Right pastors this week that “Senate Democrats are going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment” as part of their plan to “muzzle” pastors who “speak the truth.”

Cruz’s audience gasped in surprise at this bombshell announcement. It seems they hadn’t heard of this diabolical plan before – perhaps because it doesn’t exist.

It turns out that Cruz was referring to a proposed constitutional amendment that would overturn the 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United and related decisions such as this year’s McCutcheon ruling. The amendment seeks to restore to Congress and state legislatures the authority to reduce the role of unchecked and often undisclosed campaign donations from corporations and wealthy individuals.

But Cruz blatantly misrepresented these efforts to claim that Senate leaders are “repealing the First Amendment” because they want to quash the church and “don’t like it when the citizenry in their community has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done.”

4) Immigration Reform All About Hating America

Rush Limbaugh has a new theory that he hopes will incite conservative opposition to immigration reform: Democrats support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants because they hate America, hope to demonize the country and “undermine, sabotage if you will, elements of this nation’s founding.”

3. Liberals Want To Rape Your Kids

“Dr. Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt has a history of sending out insanely anti-LGBT screeds to members of his Religious Right group, Pray In Jesus Name, and this week no was no different.

Klingenschmitt, a Republican candidate for the Colorado House, warned members that liberals want to “rape” children by defending the rights of LGBT students: “‘Transgenders’ want your children. Liberals demand public access to rape your girls, at least visually in public bathrooms, or to expose themselves to your girls at school, without parental consent or protection of any kind.”

This latest rant should come as no surprise, as Klingenschmitt once accused a same-sex couple of looking at their infant with “lust” and speculated that gay people have “something unhman inside of them.”

2. Houston Promoting Violence Against Women

Despite the attempts of anti-LGBT activists  to derail an LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance in Houston, the city council approved the measure this week in an 11-6 vote.

Opponents of the nondiscrimination measure waged a nasty campaign linking the ordinance to Satanchild abuseassault and rape.

As always, conservatives pushed false claims about purported negative effects of nondiscrimination laws on religious freedom, with Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values warning that “these laws will be used as a weapon to actually run over people’s religious liberty rights” and Mike Huckabee suggesting that “this ordinance will take away your rights to live what you believe.”

1. Isla Vista Shooting: Blame Gay Marriage

It was only a matter of time until right-wing pundits blamed women’s rights advocates for the Isla Vista shooting spree by Elliot Rodger, who said he was driven by his hatred of women.

Media Matters points out that Fox News contributor Erick Erickson connected Rodger’s actions to the purported “war on masculinity” and gender equality, while another network commentator accused women tweeting under the #YesAllWomen hashtag of “man-hating.”

Glenn Beck similarly mocked women posting under #YesAllWomen for “man-bashing.”

But the Right also returned to one of their favorite targets: gay people.

Another Fox News guest, Dr. Robi Ludwig, alleged that Rodger was motivated by repressed “homosexual impulses.”

She wasn’t the only one to link the shooting to homosexuality: Ken Blackwell of the Family Research Council connected Rodger’s massacre to gay marriage. Blackwell, a former Ohio secretary of state and GOP gubernatorial candidate, also serves on the board of the National Rifle Association.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/29/14

  • Glenn Beck, David Barton, Michelle Malkin and other anti-Common Core activists will participate in a live event that will air in movie theaters throughout the country this summer called "We Will Not Conform."
  • Speaking of Beck, he has spent all week blaming Elliot Rodger's murder spree on video games, so logically he'll blame the murder of this two year-old girl on the Bible, right?
  • Predictably, David and Jason Benham have now become full-fledged Religious Right stars and have been given a speaking slot at Ralph Reed's upcoming Faith and Freedom Coalition conference.
  • Mat Staver reiterates his demand that Congress impeach President Obama: "Our Constitution and precious liberties are under full-scale assault by Barack Obama and his leftist administration. Patriotic Americans must refuse to stand silently by while leftists take our nation apart, plank by plank We MUST perform our duty as Americans to free ourselves of this tyranny."
  • Finally, Tea Party Nation has a message for the GOP: "America is waiting for you to prove you are patriots, not eunuchs."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/28/14

  • Mike Huckabee will not be speaking at the North Carolina Republican Party's convention next month because organizers could not come up with the $15,000 speaking fee he charges.
  • Matt Moore wants to make it clear that he really, truly, genuinely loves gays before telling them they are bound for Hell.
  • Bryan Fischer continues to insist that the Bible prohibits slavery and requires that those who practice it are to be put to death.  Someone should ask him if that means that he believes Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and other slave-owning Founding Fathers should have been punished accordingly.
  • The WNBA is marketing itself to LGBT fans and Peter LaBarbera is not happy: "I think that the sad thing here is there are a lot of Christian women who like the WNBA. They play basketball, they want to go to games, but now [if they continue to do that] they will be effectively subsidizing an organization which is rewarding sin."
  • Finally, this one line perfectly sums up Glenn Beck's entire worldview: "I don’t know how to make anything make sense."

Glenn Beck Blames White House Outing Of CIA Station Chief On Muslim Brotherhood

Over the Memorial Day weekend, President Obama made a surprise trip to Afghanistan and when the White House released a list of those who attended a military briefing with him, it mistakenly included the name of the CIA's top intelligence official in the country.

To Glenn Beck and his staff, this was no accident but rather an intentional effort "to get Americans killed" as a result of the fact that Muslim Brotherhood operatives have infiltrated every level of government.

"Muslim Brotherhood in the White House," Beck told his staff during yesterday's morning staff meeting. "There is Muslim Brotherhood in the White House, there is Muslim Brotherhood in the Department of Homeland Security, there is Muslim Brotherhood in the Pentagon. That's how this happens":

Beck: #YesAllWomen Is Nothing But 'Good Old Fashioned Man-Bashing'

In the wake of the murder spree carried out by Elliot Rodger, driven by his deeply and viciously misogynistic views, a #YesAllWomen hashtag was started on Twitter to highlight the fact that society largely turns a blind eye to the fact that women experience various forms of harassment, threats, and discrimination on a regular basis.

Glenn Beck, shockingly, was not particularly moved by the effort as he mockingly read some of the tweets on his television program last night and called it nothing more than "a chance for some good, old fashioned man-bashing":

Glenn Beck Reads Elliot Rodger's Manifesto: 'That Is Almost An Exact Quote From Teddy Roosevelt'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck weighed in on the murder spree carried out by Elliot Rodger last week though which he vowed to "punish all females for the crime of depriving me of sex.”

As usual, Beck placed the blame squarely on Hollywood and video games ... and progressives like Teddy Roosevelt.

Reading portions of Rodger's "manifesto" in which he declared that women "should not have the right to choose who to mate and breed with" and should all be placed in concentration camps, Beck proclaimed that "that is almost an exact quote from Teddy Roosevelt."

"It's all the progressives, communists, fascists," Beck said. "They're the ones who talk like this ... No small government person talks like this, no constitutionalist talks like this."

After co-host Pat Gray reminded Beck that it was the progressives who actually locked Americans up in concentration camps before, Beck declared that it was no coincidence that Rodger's father was involved with the film "Divergent," which is "a story about concentration camps":

For the record, Rodger's father had nothing to do with "Divergent"; he was actually second unit director on "The Hunger Games," which had nothing to do with concentration camps.

Glenn Beck Assures His Audience The Tea Party Was Not Involved In The Cochran Trespassing Incident

A few days ago, a conservative blogger in Mississippi named Clayton Kelly was arrested "after allegedly trespassing at the nursing home where Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran's wife lives and posting a picture of the Republican's spouse online without permission."

Kelly was apparently a supporter of Chris McDaniel, who is running against Cochran in the upcoming Republican primary and today, Glenn Beck invited McDaniel onto his radio program to discuss his race, during which Beck fumed that the media was falsely claiming that the Tea Party was involved in this episode.

From Beck's perspective, Kelly could not be a Tea Party member at all because his blog contained various posts attacking Beck and echoing the conspiracy theories promoted by Alex Jones.

"That was not the Tea Party," Beck said about the incident, "but the mainstream media will make it look like the Tea Party":

Interestingly, just a few hours after that very discussion, two more men were arrested in connection with this incident, one of whom is reportedly the vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party:

Two more men were arrested in connection with the video of Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-Miss.) wife, allegedly made by an apparent supporter of his primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel.

According to The Courier-Ledger, attorney Mark Mayfield, a vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party and an officer with the Central Mississippi Tea Party, and is reportedly close with McDaniel staff, was arrested Thursday by the Madison Police Department in connection with the case.
