On his television program last night, Glenn Beck continued to warn his audience that unrest in Baltimore and elsewhere is all a "set-up" and part of a well-coordinated effort to undermine social cohesion and the only people who can stop it are Beck's audience members, who are the leaders of the modern-day civil rights movement.
"I've said this from the very beginning that I believe our audience is the civil rights leaders," he said. "They are the civil rights leaders of this time, you just don't know it yet ... What we're fighting for are those basic civil rights: I am a man, treat me as a man."
And as today's civil rights leaders, Beck and his audience have to be prepared to take a beating in order to save this nation.
"The reason why non-violent resistance works is because you're going to take a billy club to the head," Beck declared. "And you're going to take it and when people see that, people — as long as you're not too far gone, and we may, we're approaching this time — as long as we're not too far gone as human beings, people will see that image and they will say, 'That's wrong, that is wrong, I may not even agree with him a hundred percent but I know that's wrong.' And that's what leads to reconciliation: no hatred. It's tough, but that's our mission":
