Glenn Beck - We Have Been Underestimated Before
Common Sense 2020 ^ | 2009-08-28 | LukeAmerica2020

Posted on 08/29/2009 5:23:53 AM PDT by Phree Non-Phixion

In the final episode of a record-breaking ratings week, Glenn Beck presented an inspiring music video produced by his staff on Friday. He simply entitled it "A 912 Music Video."

From King George to the 911 Terrorists to the current attempt at a socialist takeover of our country by the non-representing Congress and Administration, WE have been underestimated. In each case, the purveyors of tyranny failed to recognize the will of the American people. After watching this video, you may be more inclined to name it "We Have Been Underestimated Before."

House rules - everyone, even the kids, had to watch and understand what Glen was reporting. This is what happens when a government has been allowed too much power over it's people.

Indeed, it does appear to be based on that earlier video ... which was developed by a teen-ager.

Underestimated and pushed around.

We can handle being underestimated because we're not typically an arrogant people.

But being pushed around is a totally different matter.

Push is about to come to shove in this country.


Thanks for posting this, Phree.

I haven't had this much HOPE in a long long time!

The seeds of liberty are being planted like crazy, and I'm inspired by the way my fellow Americans are watering and tending them.
Maybe, just maybe, Oboma may be the one who'll end big government once and for all (even though that is not his plan).
The pendulum always swings back in the other direction, and Oboma has pushed it so far to the left, it has no choice but to go just as far to the right. That's what's so great about this country - the desire to remain free.

Yes, this original has better, less melodramatic music and doesn’t have all those cheesy “flame” special effects which made Beck’s a little hard to read the text.

Simple, direct, effective.

Thanks for the link!

I respect Glenn Beck, tune in almost every weekday, and fervently hope and — literally — pray that his “no violence” stance can take us thru the next several years with our republic intact. However, I often turn away from his broadcasts.

Glenn *may* not have heard, or may not believe, Dick Morris’s assertion that Obama is such an ideologue that if worse comes to worst, Obama will consider his presidency successful if it lasts only four years, but starts our nation irreversibly down the road to socialism. [I would say fascism.] But Obama’s one principle is “If you can win, you should,” and Black Liberation Theology adds, “...by any means at [our] disposal.”

If Obama can take 218 “trustworthy” congressional representatives, 50 trusted senators, and “good old Joe” Biden behind closed doors, the group may be able to emerge with 1000 more indecipherable pages of legislation written by the Apollo Alliance “passed, signed, sealed, and law.” We will then choose between living under fascism or waging a French Revolution, and I fear Glenn may not choose the same side I will.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of copyright issues with the original and I am sure that is why Fox can’t use it...He did a great job of leading up to the declaration of independence photo matching it with the music..gets me every time.

But I wish Jason would make a new one for 9/12. It could circulate the net even if it can’t be officially used.

You and Glen may be on the same side in the final analysis since he is broadcasting on TV and can't call for violence even if, in the end, he would choose to take up arms. (I don't know the guy, I'm just sayin')

Ronald Reagan won the Cold War without firing a shot and I think there are a lot of us who think this thing *can* be won in the same way. That doesn't preclude a terrible choice if things go horribly wrong but it is *way* too early to write off a completely political solution to this outrage especially since the people are even now starting to stand up to this apparently fascist and most definitely serious takeover of our government.

a lot of people write on youtube asking for the name of the song. It is from a drug addict movie -Requiem for a Dream- and used a lot when someone wants dramatic theme music.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE-rD8vcY4U

The soundtrack from the movie has been used movie trailers,movies and even a video game

You must be right about that. I don't think Fox would bother to recreate it otherwise.

It sure is a good video. Jason has a lot of talent and I hope he goes a long way with it. We desperately need artists like Jason on our side.

I watched Glen every day except Tuesday. What passion! I hope he can hold up to the stress and more important, I hope he has a body guard. I would hate for something to happen to him or his family.

I too have great respect for Glenn
Beck. I get the feeling he has committed to giving his all for this country, and will be on the right side whatever comes our way. It is one thing for a man to take a stand, but his fame puts even his wife and children in danger. I have to think they are with him 100%.

It may well be that Beck is the man who will save America. Yes, the people are rising, but he is uncovering the naked truth, which will fuel that rise.

At 4 this morning, I woke up and for the first time started thinking about what it would mean were two things suddenly to happen: an executive decision to cut off Internet access and a move to shut down national conservative talk radio/TV broadcasts.

And as laid their thinking, I kept wondering what we could do to fight back. To be honest, I didn’t come up with many good realistic ideas.

Any thoughts?

It is Obama's side which is trying a slow-motion French Revolution.

The French Revolution was all about seizing the assets of the upper class. The bloodshed was all about disputes on how the loot was to be divided.

The American Revolution was about the American middle class retaining its freedom and property against attempts to tax them away.

I think everyone should send the link to Jason’s video to their Congress critters with a note.

There are so many copies of this video on youtube ..I haven’t been able to figure out if his mother uploaded one onto the net.

He should be contacted about making another one.

That’s what happens when people elect on the basis of emotion and hype. The electors allowed people who want only power to come to office; the ‘government’ didn’t do it on its own.

Electors who voted for Hussein have no one to blame but themselves and their own myoptic ignorance, and ignore the character of their champion.

Few people realize the America Revolution was primarily a conservative affair. The revolutionists were just trying to keep what they saw as their rights, not build utopia.

I totally agree. This election I voted for who I wanted into office instead of who I didn’t. I didn’t vote Obamanation nor McCain. Both I believe read from the same script, I voted third party and to this day I’m proud of my vote and if I had it to do over, I would vote the same way.

I guess it took Obama in office to wake up enough people to understand that things in this country are not right and it is because we allow our emotions do our voting for us.

You will have to take a chance on the unknown to get changes in government. The existing ones (barring a few) are part of this problem.

“This video is powerful!!!!!!!!!!”

It is powerful because it uses the images of Americans who stood up and took responsibility for everything; their actions, their lives, their world, the future.

Use of the word “We” (that capitalized We)by ourselves in this context, especially with respect to the founding fathers is at best premature. From the perspective of comrade president and his followers it is laughable.

To act in the service of Good and Right and damn the consequences requires a Spirit that commands the flesh and knows no fear greater than failing to try.

I hope there are still enough Americans who, when the time comes, revere American tradition enough to stand up in the Spirit of “We” and kick unholy ass. I hope to Heaven I am one of them.

Just—be ready, have your own more local group (people you can visit in person) ready as well, and just maybe invest in “ham” radio. They can’t cut that off. Keep your powder dry, so to speak.

That’s theproblem - some people wanted changes in government policies, not changes in government - but people failed to see the difference, and got a change in government instead.

Worse, they never asked themselves to define exactly what those changes in policy would be or how they could be achieved.

That few bothered to examine the character of thir savior compounds the problem to the point where the head of govenment is personally an effective zero.

There were no good choices - but that handwriting was on the wall when the Republicans ran Dole. Reagan was good for foreign policy, but a disaster domestically.

"That’s what happens when people elect on the basis of emotion and hype."

Especially the hype. A lot of people--a huge number, in my estimation--voted for him simply because of Bush Derangement Syndrome, which was driven into near-frenzy by the traitorous media. If a study is ever made about why people voted as they did last election, I'm betting that less than 25% voted based on research they had personally done. Most relied on the HYPE from the media and the political talking heads. God bless Freepers, who mostly would fall into that 25% number.

I understand what you mean, but all due respect, Beck has no power to save America....only God can do that....and I belive Beck knows this fully.

But God can use Glenn Beck to alert us, much like Paul Revere....or a Patrick Henry.

Beck is speaking truth to power

Pray for Beck, he is willing to be used.
