Beck: Blow-up coming by 2010
Glen Beck Show | 2/10/09

Posted on 02/10/2009 7:36:55 PM PST by pabianice

Beck was animated tonight. He predicts some sort of blow-up/revolution by next year. Rationed healthcare for those over 50. Obama's Brownshirts. Three trillion dollars down the toilet in ObamaAid. The Left confiscating private firearms. Illegal aliens getting "stimulus" money and amnesty. The Obama war on religion. The second and third ranking Justice Department nominees child pornographers and anti-military hatemongers. Interesting.

Damn, Beck’s been right on too many things over the past couple years. This is not good.

I doubt it will go that bad, at least not so quickly.

If it does, I’d almost guarantee the United States will be less than 50.

The Left confiscating private firearms.

How will we vote, then? ;-)

I guess if it's imminent, we'll have to vote early and often...

Glenn Beck is just trying to stir up ratings. There will be no revolution. Americans simply do not have the stomach for it anymore, and the federal government is simply too powerful to defeat in a military confrontation.

We need to come up with real solutions to take back the reigns of power in Washington not indulge ludicrous fantasies about a second American Revolution.

Those of us who have followed Beck for the last few years know that he has been on target with the majority of his predictions.

And yes, he has temporary moments of insanity as he readily admits...

Bring it on. I cant wait for Civil War II. Conservatives vs. Liberals? We have guns and they have their bongs. We are veterans and they are maggot infested hippies. They have the liberal media, but we have guts and the desire to take our Republic back from the Commie scum that have hijacked and perverted it. Bring it on!!

I pray it will be so - Before we lose our right to protest!

Obama is taking so much away from this nation - it won’t be too soon - if people begin to protest loud enough!

I know it is about time! Conservatives need a leader with a backbone!

Many things on that list may occur, but the one that won’t is the confiscation of firearms.

They may sign a bill....but the confiscation will NOT occur!

He’s not the first one to predict 2010 will be a problem. By this time the stimulus will be pissed away and/or lost and not done anything, and the hyperinflation and increased unemployment will be kicking in pretty good by then.

Stock up on commodities now. Make friends with like minded neighbors if you’re going to stick it out where you live. Get your self protection plans ready. This is the big game coming up.

We’ve got so many people in entitlement mode who can’t take care of themselves and believe it’s everyone else’s duty to, they will be rioting and trying to take from everyone who IS responsible and self-sufficient. Ain’t gonna be pretty. We will be seeing things we have never seen before very soon.

I like a man that is passionate about liberty, but I think it was Imus who said that Beck often looked like he could take everyone in the studio hostage at any moment.

Glenn Beck is occasionally over the top, but in this case he pretty much has it nailed. The only question is who will start it?

Who will join it? Who will risk everything for it? Is the tree of liberty to be watered? Wise men said this would happen someday.

Won't happen. Well fed / well entertained populations don't revolt. You'd have to ban professional sports before people started caring that they weren't free anymore.

Beck’s ratings have dropped since he has started to tell things as he sees them (i.e., doom and gloom).

It’s easy to dismiss him when you don’t bother addressing the content and details of his message.

He has also consistently begged people to stop talking about revolution. That each and every avenue must be exhausted.

It’s going on right now. They are getting people one by one. That is how they will continue to do it. If you assemble they will just mow everyone down right there. If you hide em they will search the house. If you say you’ve sold them if you can’t prove it you’re going to jail.

“You like socialism, huh?”

No, hardly. I think we need a revolution to drive out the socialists and hang them if possible.

But I don’t see an armed revolution working. We can find other ways to drive them out. For example, I love what New Hampshire is doing with their States Rights resolution. But we have to stop talking about it and start actually doing it.

I would need to get into Obama’s head to know for sure how this will play out. If he is just a demagogue, then as soon as he sees his pole numbers drop out the bottom he will suddenly become moderate. If on the other hand he actually is the Manchurian candidate they he will make the grab of property and guns with the intention of setting off the revolution.

Lincoln said “Nobody goes into a war expecting to loose. One side must be, and both often are, wrong.” This suits a Manchurian candidate just fine. But if his liberal supporters understood how bad a rebellion will be they wouldn’t start this. If they had ever considered that their high tech urban world will come down around their ears, regardless of if they win or loose, they wouldn’t be so fast to discredit the electoral process with obvious and rampant cheating.

The South prior to the Civil War, rather than wait out a president they didn’t like, tried to circumvent the electoral process and pull out of the Union. The result destroyed the Old South, long before Lee surrendered his sword at Appomattox. Likewise the liberals on the Berkeley campus, New York Starbucks or Hollywood movie lot will find their world evaporate once a rebellion starts. Just as will you and I sitting here at our computers freely exchanging ideas. It doesn’t matter if the eventual winner is a right wing industrial oligarchy, religious theocracy, or a left wing communist dictatorship. The nation will be repressive, impoverished, and intolerant of anyone who is culturally different from whatever new norm is established. It took 80 years for America to recover from the civil war. And then only because World War II forced all the people of America to fight as one or perish individually.

Idealists and radicals start civil wars, but with the exception of the American Revolution they rarely survive them. It is obvious that being on the loosing side of a rebellion is never good for ones health. However Trotsky, Che, and Robespier were all idealists on the winning side of their revolutions. All ended up dead, at the hands of the more ruthless and pragmatic men brought to power by the revolution itself. Only in the Revolution did the leaders fair well. And it should be noted that with the exception of John Adams (Of Boston Tea Party fame) all were reluctant warriors, preferring petition to parliament over muskets and bayonets until King George’s stubbornness made negotiation impossible. And our founding fathers were a rare group indeed. I see no sign of a Washington, Jefferson, Franklin or John Adams when I turn on C-Span. But I do see many a John Brown or Edmund Ruffin clone pontificating within the halls of Congress.

Free Republic does not advocate or condone racism, violence, rebellion, secession, or an overthrow of the government. Free Republic advocates a return to constitutionally limited government, reserving all government powers not expressly delegated by the constitution to the United States to the States respectively, or the people, emphasizing sovereign state governments, local government, self-government and self-rule, while restricting government powers to only those enumerated in the constitution and maximizing individual rights and liberty as originally envisioned and established by our Founding Fathers and secured and defended by the blood of patriots and statesmen for over two hundred years.

I don’t think our citizens have caught on yet. Changes to our constitution are being made this month — by a stroke of the pen — not through the ballot box.

There is no limit to how quickly the enemies of our country can take away our freedoms, now that they are in the White House.

I just read that unemployment in CA is now pushing 10%?

What’s going to happen out there when the police and fireman don’t show up for work because the government can’t pay them?

Beck may be a drama queen, but there is a confluence of variables — including those he discussed here — that lead to dark places.

I believe that Glenn is probably right . . . . . MANY of us here at FR have had the same thoughts.

Here’s the deal - a LOT of people voted for the Obamoron in the belief that he would give them a credit card for $3000 or $6000; or buy them a car, put gas in it AND pay theor mortgage; provide FREE national healthcare (and, trust me, I’m in the VA system - it ain’t all it’s cracked up to be . . . . . that’s why I prefer going to civilian doctors); etc., etc. When the reality hits them (and, it’s S-L-O-W-L-Y starting to) that he can’t deliver on most of that, the backlash will be pretty nasty.

I think Glenn has this one pegged.

My sympathies for having to live in CA. We have a much less socialist state government here in TX, but the real threat is with the feds.

We need an organizer, a non-violent revolutionary to get it started.

Weren't many people saying the same thing back in the 1770's in regard to the British military forces in the American colonies?
