Glenn Beck: If America Votes To Reelect Obama Then “We Have To Be Destroyed”

This has been an interminably long, divisive, and vitriolic campaign. Romney’s camp complains that he was accused of murdering the wife of a former employee of a company that Bain Capital drove into bankruptcy. President Obama has been charged with intentionally allowing an ambassador to be murdered as he watched. Romney’s campaign co-chair, John Sununu, declared that “This country can’t be saved unless we get rid of this president.” Ted Nugent came just shy of threatening to assassinate Obama, earning a visit from the Secret Service. And Americans across the country had to suffer through Meat Loaf butchering the national anthem.

Yes, it’s been a brutally difficult time for the country, but leave it to Glenn Beck to put the poisoned cherry on top of a stomach-churning sundae:

Glenn Beck Messiah


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.

Beck’s trademarked dementia has once again proven to be a show-stopper. His assertion that an Obama victory somehow translates into “drive[ing] the righteous from among” us, makes no sense whatsoever. Why wouldn’t the “righteous” stick around and continue to advocate for their agenda? Where does Beck think they are being driven to? Canada? Israel?

If God’s wrath is coming, what form will it take? Perhaps a hurricane in our most populous region? Oh wait, that already happened even before the election and many right-wingers claim that it helped Obama. Was that God’s intention? Could Beck’s God have deliberately assisted Obama? Remember, Beck’s God is also Romney’s god – Mormon. Does Romney share this Apocalyptic view?

Beck insists that he cannot be called paranoid, even as he sounds the alarm that it is “last call” for America. No, that’s not paranoid. And it isn’t as if he has signaled the end times before. Oh yeah, he has done that – repeatedly heralding the arrival of the “Perfect Storm.”

Glenn Beck's Perfect Storm

Beck disingenuously says that he “believes in the American people,” while leaving open the possibility that we are “dead inside” and “can no longer see the difference between good and evil.” It is that inner death that would define us as “a remarkable evil on this planet,” and condemn us to destruction.

There is one thing for which we can all be grateful on this election day: Glenn Beck cannot be elected to any divine post from which he could carry out his dementia.

UPDATE: Obama Wins! So it’s official. We are dead inside and have to be destroyed. Can it wait until after breakfast? And perhaps we should start with Beck and his followers. They are probably in more of a hurry to get to Heaven anyway (although they may be woefully disappointed when they reach their destination).

UPDATE II: Beck is now advising his disciples to buy farmland and guns. Next he’ll be leading them to a commune in Guyana (Becktown?) and making them Kool-Aid.

  1. Glenn Beck is the one who is too far gone to be helped. Does he really believe this shit? The things he says sounds like the ravings of a lunatic! Of all the things he predicted would happen if Obama was elected in 2008, how many came to pass? I would venture to guess not one thing, especially the far out wacko things he predicted. There is not doubt, if Beck really believes what he says, that he is stark raving mad. Maybe Fox can have Keith Ablow take a look at this video and give us his prognosis.

  2. Say what you will about the never-great Meatloaf butchering (perfect verb, by the way) the National Anthem. It can’t come close to how he butchered his own spectacular mess of a song praying for the end of time. And the lyrics weren’t as bad as the accompaniment was.

  3. Is Beckie using the Royal WE? Then, we have to agree with him.

  4. My brother asks me if I think that Beck actually believes the nonsense he spews. If he really does, then he’s in a mental state between horribly deluded and genuinely insane. If he does not, then he is acting. Like a few months ago when he claimed that he “hates the Republican Party,” he was acting. Like when he cries; he is acting. In this case, I believe he’s acting paranoid to motivate his gullible and ignorant followers to get out and vote, to GOTV.

    See; I don’t think that Beck is demented at all. He may convince himself that some of what he claims is true, but I’m convinced that he’s just a gifted racist, reactionary propagandist. If he were smart, he’d secretly fund Obama’s campaign. Once Obama is gone, Beck’s ratings will drop faster than sales of Ayn Rand books.

  5. This election shows that we have reached the tipping point. More people living off the government than contributing to society.

    • Why don’t you just watch, listen and learn? In four years, we’ll have lower poverty, lower unemployment, lower food stamps.

      Do you want to yank your grandparents off Social Security and rob them of the medical care that they bought into much of their lives?

      The American people have reached a tipping point: no reactionaries in the White House. Glenn Beck can suck on that for four years!

  6. With that crown of thorns and crying his eyes out Beck looks like Rick Flair!
    By the way, Beck is just fleecing his own follower’s with his schtick. Back in the old days, communities would run these charlatans out of town for cheating the folks out of there hard earned money.
    The ironic part of this would be if Beck wrote a book explaining what he was doing to his audience of dullards and they lined up at book signings with cash in hand and a look on there faces like they were meeting Jesus!
    I might pay to see that, and I’ll just bet Beck would have it on pay-per-view!

  7. Free spreech is great and all, but when people have control of the airwaves like Beck and he trying to convince the world is collapsing and is trying to scare them to the point they are going to go into some pychotic rage..I think someone needs to step in and muzzle him.

  8. I wonder how Glenn is feeling today(Nov. 7)? I’m sure he is convinced the apocolypse is upon us. His fellow Mormon Romney is not going to get the opportunity to fulfill Beck’s delusional belief of a prophecy that a mormon saves the country. Maybe that prophecy was for Harry Reid?

  9. What? Muzzle him? You need to perceive him differently. Note that “Wankery” is a label for this post. If you can’t listen to Beck and get a chuckle out of his nonsense, then you take him too seriously.

    And don’t forget: when the President was re-elected last night, Glenn Beck suffered his worse failure ever. He predicted a landslide for Romney. He spent four years of propagandizing against the President for what? Nothing!

    Glenn Beck: EPIC FAILURE!

    (I’m not sure what I’m happier about, Obama’s victory or Beck’s crushing loss.)

  10. He’s just a ham actor trying to play a mentally ill person on television. I sort of hate to see anybody write about him, or any of those other liars. The gullible will never give up on people like him, and I don’t even think they should be encouraged to. The great statesman W.C. Field said it best: “Never wise up a chump.”
