Glen Beck radio 3/24 - I think this is important
Radio

Posted on 03/24/2010 6:55:21 AM PDT by LizardQueen

I rarely start posts like this but IMO this is important. Am listening to Glen Beck radio this AM and he is making a very important point and it is this:

America doesn't like bomb throwers and hippies, this was proved in the 1960s. Now those same people are in power, and they're INTENTIONALLY trying to provoke us conservatives and tea partiers into doing the SAME thing to marginalize and discredit us, and to make themselves look like the mainstream ones and not the radicals.

As tempting as it is to pick up a gun, bomb, or brick DO NOT DO THIS, not just because it is illegal but because it plays exactly into their hands and this is what they WANT us to do.

If you can get to a radio today I really recommend you listen to this, this is an enlightening perspective.

I have been listening too. I think he has a point here. Never thought about it like that. Almost like they are daring us to do something just so they can jump on that and use it to seize more of our freedoms. I will file this away for future use.

While this is very truth I believe it's moot. I say that because I believe that the Obama admin will eventually create a Reichstag event...that is, they will themselves have some operatives take some action that they will blame on the Tea Party Patriots and since they're running all of the investigating branches and have the MSM behind them the accusation will stick. Now maybe it'll be the destruction of some landmark building such as the Reichstag, or someone will take a shot at some political figure or who knows what Obama’s thugs will devise. But the end result will be the discredit of the Tea Party movement in particular, conservatives in general and possibly martial law to suspend elections or perhaps it'll just be a significant event enough where the mood swings back to the democrats.

I agree with him, although I believe this is subliminal stuff. You can look at the protests of the folks at the tea parties and see Americans at their best. Just really look at the people. They are like a family reunion in progress. They are and the LOOK LIKE America’s best...and LIBERALS HATE THAT!

Glenn is responding to phony complaints that he is inciting violence & doing some cya.

I have no intention of the letting the litbards dictate my behavior in any direction.

We need to quit reacting to everything & become pro active. Breitbart got it right: we’re going on offense.

What a pile of crap. The country needs to be taken back, by any means necessary.

The reason the Right always loses, is that they play by the rules and the Left does what ever it takes to win.

Been saying this for months. It is EXACTLY what they want us to do. If we needed any other proof, pelosi’s parade THROUGH the rally in DC with that viking gavel and that sickening grin was a double dare designed to elicit rage.
The left would have rioted...and they have...for far less blatant taunts, and for far less significant reasons.
We are not the left. Most of us are reasoning, thinking, normal people and we are being systematically driven to distraction by outrage after outrage.
It will not let up. It will get much, much worse.
We MUST fight. HOW is the question.

This should be obvious. In fact if we don't they will say we did. Keep your heads and push back against this bill at the state level. Support law suites and try to elect people who will work for repeal.

Good point but Liz, stand by...
I made the same point on Sat after it was reported that a rock was thrown at Slaughter’s cong office...and was I ever flamed!!!
People are really frustrated and pissed - rightly so - and when they feel they have no control over their lives, they react, sometimes violently...the left does it just to get attention but truely appalled citizens do it when they feel there is no other way...
Please God don’t let it get to that point...but it’s understandable if it does...

Absolutely. I'm not advocating violence or anything, I'm just stating my belief that eventually Obama's thugs will do something that will be blamed on the Tea Party movement with the intent to discredit conservatives. By all means refrain from throwing bricks and boorish behavior. And yes, November can't come soon enough. Hopefully we get there before Obama's thugs take action.

That is my bet, too. They have already started with Representative Lewis and Jesse Jackson claiming they were called the N word by the crowd in Washington.

These people follow the same playbook as Hitler and Stalin so we have their game plan. We need to try to stay a step ahead of them some way and Beck's advice may be good. The Catch 22 is if we protest in mass we run the risk of that being used against us and if we don't we seem to acquiesce to their plan.

How did THEY get in charge, then? How did America so quickly forget? Obama was linked to Ayers and other radicals since 2007, but not enough people cared. They just followed "hope and change." The marxists know for a fact that Americans have sound-bite long memories and no knowledge of history.

I know, I know. BELIEVE me, I know. I was in DC on Saturday and the entire time I was there thought “If IRAN has secret nuke tips missiles on subs I sure hope they send one up the Potomac and wipe this place out. Even if I’m here when the do it”.

People can make their own decisions on what they do, and God knows chucking a brick would be very therapeutic at this point but if *at this point in time* it makes things worse then it needs to not happen.

It may come to a point where it’s the only option, but I don’t think we’re there yet, not with midterms coming up and a chance to start reversing this without bricks.

I’ve been saying that and getting slammed for it by some on FR. There will always be some that will do this, no matter what. Unfortunately the left will label us all the same when one acts out like this. Even an unproved assumption as with the spitting and using the n...word the other day, unproved but, the left media is using it to the hilt.

I agree with Beck. Couldn't sleep last night, and I woke up with exactly this on my mind. Why does Odummie do things that anyone with a brain knows would be a gratuitous provocation? Why does he insult SOTUS on national T.V.? They know the majority do not agree with what they're doing. How do you control a majority that disagrees with you? Eventually, you don't. You have to bring it to a crisis.

I seem to remember 20 million or so in Germany who surrendered their firearms to the government & obeyed orders.

No sane person advocates for violence. But, we conservatives are so wedded to the mantle of being the adults in the room, we end up enabling these tyrants. They know we won’t resist.

Yes, we need to put our energy into the November election& after that 2012. Ideally, that will be enough.

But it’s also time to face the very ugly reality that sometime it becomes necesary to resist tyranny by other means.

What can we do? Lots. Get busy working for good conservative candidates in November. All elections are national now. If you can’t spare money for contributions, there will be plenty you can still do: phone calls, etc.

Thanks to the internet, you can participate in a campaign from anywhere.

I haven’t looked at it yet but the RNC apparently has posted a list of vulnerable dems to be targeted for outster in November.

Exactly. I've seen video of that event and the only one that remotely sounds like what they claim I believe they were being called "Traitor" not the N word. But even the supposedly fair and balanced news bought the lie without examination.

These people follow the same playbook as Hitler and Stalin so we have their game plan. We need to try to stay a step ahead of them some way and Beck's advice may be good. The Catch 22 is if we protest in mass we run the risk of that being used against us and if we don't we seem to acquiesce to their plan.

Absolutely...and, of course, it was Hitler's people that burned the Reichstag...which is where I believe they'll take the lead from and create a similar event in the US. Again, I don't know what form it'll take, rather it's the destruction of some building or a fake (or real) assassination attempt or what...but I do believe Obama has the people around him that are that evil.

But there’s a different between starting hippie-type violence and passive refusal to obey unlawful and unconstitutional orders. I will not do the former, I will do the latter.

But they don’t need ammuition.

This is what conservatives can’t get thru their heads: we expect everyone to operate in the honest way most of us do.

The enemy plays by different rules. Nobody on our side has gotten violent at Tea Partes—they have Black Panthers at polling sites.

Our passive posture is not going to stop them from making wild accusations.

We need to stop pegging our behavior to what THEY might think or say about us.

Assume they are going to lie about us & move on. Get to work on the November election.

Just do what’s right.

If we do it , or don’t do it - They’ll still make it look like we are doing it.

The Teaparty is a sacrificial lamb. Let the tea party take the brunt of the attack - don’t fall in love with the Tea Party because it will be vilified very quickly.

The disbanded Tea Party will seperate, and give rise to a more powerful movement. That movement will seek the overthrow of the government. That movement will also be vilified and lied about - until it’s disbanded. And another will rise.....

Using ACORN tactics just like they do. Use the Tea Party, support the Tea Party but don’t get too attached.

“As tempting as it is to pick up a gun, bomb, or brick DO NOT DO THIS, not just because it is illegal but because it plays exactly into their hands and this is what they WANT us to do.”

I agree. Obama would like nothing more than that to happen in order to justify everything up to including martial law.

They tried and pretty much failed with the racial epithet story. That WOULD have had legs and its still being mouthed by the more virulently ignorant like that fool at the AJC.

All Tea Parties should have some sort of video backup to disprove the lies the leftists will bring out. So far its been loose and random that video has been picked up and all but maybe it needs to be more formalized...like a designated videographer[s] or something.

Just a thought.

Bingo.

We can sit around & lecture each other about how we shouldn’t resort to “ther” tactics.

Meanwhile, they’re busy setting fires to their own headquarters to blame it on us.

One of the original Mayor Daley’s oldest tricks.

Given the caliber of our current dem leadership, I can easily imagine at least one of them murdering one of his or her own family members just to have something to accuse us of.

You can be as measured & reasonable as you wish in your dialog.

And you’ll still be branded a McVeigh wannabe.

If they set something up and blame it on the Tea parties/conservatives it is still a BIG risk for them. The alternate media is not that small anymore. Breitbart and the Acorn videos prove that. we can expose them. We need to have videos rolling at every conservative event.

Glenn is not advocating sitting on our asses and doing nothing when it comes to restoring our republic. He’s saying that we should go on the offensive with the many nonviolent tools at our disposal.
With the present moral fiber of our nation, a violent offensive on our part will lead to the French revolution not the American one. And in the end, a Napoleonic dictator instead of a restoration of our constitutional republic.

And don’t mistake his nonviolent stance on shaping public policy as one who wouldn’t defend his life, family, or property with a gun.

I pretty much agree. The Dems will have some of thier thugs, blow something up and they media will blame it on the Tea Parties, count on it.

At that point the Tea Parties have to decide if they should be destroyed (thus letting the Constitution be destoryed) or fight back.

Glenn is right.
In this day and age, wars are played out in the media as much as on the battlefield.
Remember who controls the media.
It is possible to "win" the physical conflict and still lose the war. Example: Vietnam.
This is not the kind of war we can win in the streets.
Only the left do riots. We must be, can be, smarter than that.

His other commentary is giving me chills this AM - he has said flat out “stop saying you’re a fan of mine” and “don’t hitch yourself to me, it will only hurt you”. He says that they’re looking to teach a lesson and that “he’s the guy”.

I can’t believe this is happening in our country.
