Glenn Beck Responds to Bette Midler Attack that He Could Spark Rwanda-like U.S. Civil War - Audio
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | September 30, 2009 | BrianinMO

Posted on 09/30/2009 11:33:53 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is audio of Glenn Beck today responding to Bette Midler's attack on him yesterday, where she said that he is "terrifying," and that Beck could spark a "civil war" in America like what happened in Rwanda.

Beck plays the clip and then responds by hammering her for displaying the "progressive movement's" disdain for anyone who disagrees with their worldview.

Beck said it is Midler's "progressive" kind of thinking that has led to genocide all over the world.

He also said liberals are trying to "whip up their base" by constantly saying conservatives want to "kill people."

Bette Midler?
She’s still around?
I could never stand her “singing”. She’s always flat.

Conservatives really don’t want a civil war, but we have a breaking point....just like our founders. I think when you take away guns or general free speech...then you’re pretty-much asking for it.

Not flat enough, still standing! Maybe throwing herself in front of the conservative movement is her way of making sure she get ran over!

I'm hearing this a lot. Am I missing something???? Do those on the Left really believe this????? I think they need to get on Paxil or some type of anxiety medication. They're starting to sound quite mad. Really unbalanced.

I know that I was a little rattled when all this “thought police” crapola was being touted just after the President's election but, eventually, it wore off and I'm back to business as usual. I truly believe if the President weren't African American, he'd be having a much worse time than he has.

Everybody needs to take a deep breath and cleanse the mind. Deep breath, relax. Let it out, relax Deep breath, take your time, let it out S L O W L Y. Relax.

Education is a good thing. But its not about education.

Its about reeducation. The reeducation of America by the liberal establishment.

Its not about hate on the right for liberals.

Its about hate from the left for America.

There will be no civil war in this nation. A second American Revolution, maybe, but not a civil war. And that Revolution will not be sparked by Beck or Rush or Savage, but by the leftist thugs currently trampling on the Constitutional rights of the American people.

The left has recognized that for the first time in 40-50 years, our side has decided that enough is enough. And the left can sense that change and they are scared to death. And they should be, because there’s about 40-50 years of anger built up and ready to be let loose........on them.

Whenever a foreign country or, even, a terrorist, has a complaint or displays hatred toward America...liberals always want to know - why don't they like us? what can we do to make it so they will like us? what can we do to make them happy?

funny how liberals don't extend those same thoughts towards fellow Americans...

Asking for what, exactly? A Constitutionally-permitted change in government? Yes, it’s called an election, and we have one next year.

And if people are as fed up as you believe, then they will overwhelm the polls and vote the bad guys out.

Anatomy of a goal:

Communist Goals (1963)

Documention below

Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35

January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals



Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

Ain't that the truth. I never thought I'd hear wholesale cries of "racism" and assassination. But even Carter and Clinton have jumped on the bandwagon.
