Glenn Beck: You're Being Set Up, America
Fox News ^ | April 19, 2010 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 04/20/2010 9:31:05 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

If you've been a long time viewer of this show and listener of my radio show, then you remember a time when the show was based in comedy. We looked at the news of the day and tried to get a point across in the funniest way possible. Today is a different story. The show is now about as funny as smallpox.

Recently, I got all kinds of heat for telling Forbes magazine that my company is an entertainment company. But they only printed half the quote. The rest of the quote was about how I very much believe the republic is on fire, I just don't think the best way to solve it is with a cartoon dog carrying a fire hose.

Look, I want an easy life too. I want to go to movies. I don't want to think about all the things we have to think about. But we are not protecting the republic just for us — this is for our children.

This land — if you believe the Founders — was found through divine providence. Which means we're holding a place for His purposes.

We've talked on this program about faith, hope and charity. And I'm going to be frank with you, when we started it up I wasn't sure exactly why this was the direction we needed to go in. But — and here's something you won't hear on TV — I introduced that theme because I felt led in that direction by the Spirit. I'm not sure exactly where this is going to lead, but I want to bring you not only the news of the day, but what's coming next, without being divisive or perceived as divisive.(continued)

Amen - Beware of people like Glen Beck who warn against ever using violence towards Tyranny - his selection of Ghandi’s so-called non-violent approach is ridiculous. Are we supposed to start having sit-ins and bus boycotts???(BTW, I read that Ghandi was a mean little man, and he beat his wife.)

“A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall”

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son ?
And where have you been my darling young one ?
I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways
I’ve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I’ve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I’ve been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

Oh, what did you see, my blue eyed son ?
And what did you see, my darling young one ?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin’
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin’
I saw a white ladder all covered with water
I saw ten thousand takers whose tongues were all broken
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son ?
And what did you hear, my darling young one ?
I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin’
I heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
I heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin’
I heard ten thousand whisperin’ and nobody listenin’
I heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin’
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

Oh, who did you meet my blue-eyed son ?
Who did you meet, my darling young one ?
I met a young child beside a dead pony
I met a white man who walked a black dog
I met a young woman whose body was burning
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
I met one man who was wounded in love
I met another man who was wounded and hatred
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

And what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son ?
And what’ll you do now my darling young one ?
I’m a-goin’ back out ‘fore the rain starts a-fallin’
I’ll walk to the deepths of the deepest black forest
Where the people are a many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
Where the executioner’s face is always well hidden
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the color, where none is the number
And I’ll tell and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin’
But I’ll know my songs well before I start singin’
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

A very appropriate quote. It's nice to talk diplomacy and peace, like we do in foreign policy, but there must always be a "stick" behind the soft speaking, and a willingness to use it.

America's independence and continued freedom was not achieved and maintained by peaceful protests and placards.

Imagine the bravado needed to believe that you can convince Americans that they are the problem.

Kind of like Jeffrey Dahmer having the cajones to tell the cops that Konerak was his drunken lover.

Oh, never mind, that actually worked didn't it? Guess sometimes cajones are all you need if people aren't smart enough to question the lie.

Ghandi was a shmuck. His sage advice to the new state of Israel: passive resistance. The little pissant was lucky his opponent was the humanitarian British Empire.

Beck is right. America in 2010 is not America of 1776. Our forefathers had the spiritual/philosophical/moral foundation to be able to take the stand they took and come out on the other end of it a free people. Where is that foundation today? Tea parties? Not exactly. A lot of people are there just over money. A lot of folks are ignoring the spiritual altogether. As a whole, our nation is not made of the same stuff as the Revolutionaries of 76. This is not to say we don’t have a place and a way to be effective. Choosing violence is not the way. If you are attacked, certainly defend yourself. But violence in the hands of people with no real moral foundation will lead to anarchy and dictatorship. That is not what we want. Pray for a free election in 2010. And pray that the people aren’t snookered into making the wrong choices.

Apropos of not much, I noticed some time ago that Hollywood often presents that scenario. Sure, Schwarzenegger comes out on top -- he had big muscles. Okay, Jean Claude Van Damme always wins -- he's highly trained.

But Tom Cruise? Michael Douglas? These guys made many movies in which they always triumphed over all odds. Brains? Muscles? Skill? Naaaaaaaaaaaaah, they just always had bigger cajones than the other guy (at least according to the script).

Life actually does work that way (sometimes).

I want so badly to believe a peaceful resolution can be made in our dire circumstance with this out of control government...

But then I think about all the corruption and how deep it goes and I have a hard time truly believing (in my gut) that there won’t be real bloodshed over this someday.

Hate to think it, and even worse to say it, but to believe it will be done peacefully, is naive, at best.

Stalin is dead, and no future generation within its right mind aspires to be what he was. Ghandi on the other hand has admirable traits that folks in other generations would like to emulate. The battle is not the war. If violence comes your way, then you have a right to defend yourself. But, in this day and age woe be to the man who starts it all. It will not be pretty if political dissent breaks out into any widespread violence. And, it won’t end the way that most folks on this forum would like it to.

Gandhi said that the nonviolent activist, like any soldier, had to be ready to die for the cause. And in fact, during India’s struggle for independence, hundreds of Indians were killed by the British.
The difference was that the nonviolent activist, while willing to die, was never willing to kill.
Gandhi pointed out three possible responses to oppression and injustice. One he described as the coward’s way: to accept the wrong or run away from it. The second option was to stand and fight by force of arms. Gandhi said this was better than acceptance or running away.
But the third way, he said, was best of all and required the most courage: to stand and fight solely by nonviolent means.
(snip)
To oppose British rule, the colonists used many tactics amazingly like Gandhi’s—and according to Sharp, they used these techniques with more skill and sophistication than anyone else before the time of Gandhi.

For instance, to resist the British Stamp Act, the colonists widely refused to pay for the official stamp required to appear on publications and legal documents—a case of civil disobedience and tax refusal, both used later by Gandhi. Boycotts of British imports were organized to protest the Stamp Act, the Townshend Acts, and the so-called Intolerable Acts. The campaign against the latter was organized by the First Continental Congress, which was really a nonviolent action organization.

The colonists used another strategy later adopted by Gandhi—setting up parallel institutions to take over functions of government—and had far greater success with it than Gandhi ever did. In fact, according to Sharp, colonial organizations had largely taken over control from the British in most of the colonies before a shot was fired.

On the Repressed Violence of the Nonviolent
http://tinyurl.com/2repl5

Excerpt:

“...Regarding Gandhi’s immoral pacifist-aggression, Richard Grenier notes that he wrote to Hitler and attempted to convert him to the ways of nonviolence. “’Dear Friend,’ the letter begins, and proceeds to a heartfelt appeal to the Fuhrer to embrace all mankind ‘irrespective of race, color, or creed.’” Gandhi naively thought that “Hitler’s heart would be melted by an appeal to forget race, color, and creed, and... was sure the feelings of the Japanese would be hurt if they sensed themselves unwanted.”

That is really a unfair statement to say that where you employed somehow changes your thinking. I work in the medical field that is getting more liberal everyday, but I will not let them change my focus that Jesus is my Savior. Nor will I let them sway me in my conservative views.
Can we just assume and take it for face value that Beck has had his wake up call. He has not hidden the fact that he is a recovering alcoholic. Alcohol does cloud your judgment. Heck I don't blame him at all, I would have to be drunk everyday to work at CNN.
I understand that we live in a society where impression is everything, but if you keep focusing on tennies and jeans, you miss the message....

And in those cases, if they bring violence people have a right to defend themselves. But those who are quick to violence need to realize that it could be the end of the Republic. I am afraid that the other side will instigate something or some infiltrating group will do something and it be blamed on the Tea partiers. I see it being set up. Regardless, it is like my old pastor used to say “Do right, do right, if the stars fall, do right.” Talk of violence comes too quickly. America will not recover. The Republic will die in the first battle.

I agree. If violence - or more accurately when - comes, it will he more on the order of the mindless bloodlust of the French Revolution for the very reasons you state: We have lost our moral bearings. I recently re-read “A Tale of Two Cities” and, as we face the very real prospect of violence in our land, I would recommend that book as a sort of primer on what will result.

So will you be the one who fires the first shot?

GB isn’t telling you to lay down your guns. He’s telling the rest of the asshats that make us out to be violent radicals that we aren’t. We just fed up.

If it came down to armed revolution, we can all agree we’d be on the same side.

Beck can’t necessarily go on TV and give that exact TJ quote without be accused of the things he’s already being accused of. 2010 is different than the 1770’s. He thinks about it, as we all have. But going on national television and advocating violence helps no one, especially us.

If you people want a violent revolution to unfold, go ahead and start it up. Don’t complain about those of us that want to do it the non-violent way. Right now, praying, protesting and voting is the best way to see us through this. All other options are distant seconds.

The T& J crack was about presentation.

It is purely my opinion that Beck came close last year to cultish behavior. The only leader the current situation needs is the constitution.

I have stopped watching since he has started “preaching” about Faith Hope and Charity.

Our Faith has been tried by fire before.
To attempt to bring religion into this fight is wrong.
Sitting around hoping everything will get better is exactly why we are in this fight.
charity. AMERICANS are KNOWN for our Charity.
I have watched him attempt to explain this new banner and I was not convinced.

There is something underlying Becks motives. (besides fame and money). He has been generous I know. But, the big difference in Beck and Rush is that Rush has never wavered on his beliefs.

I don't hold any animosity against Beck. Just have questions on his true beliefs. What I think doesn't really matter. He still reaches millions now that desperately needs History and econ lessons.

^This.

If all it takes is a year of Obama to incite violence, we are lost. No red-blooded American would suggest that patriots stand by while polticians sell our liberty and Constitution down the river, but we haven’t even had one election yet to allow our voice to be heard.

If the process by which the will of the people is realized becomes subverted and our voice is silenced, that is another story.

This has not happened yet. Keep your powder dry, but keep it locked up until there is absolutely no other alternative.

In my humble opinion, we hurt our own cause when we threaten insurrection before we’ve given the democratic process a chance to work.

Inspire and educate those whom are ready to listen. Live by example. This battle begins at home.

“In my humble opinion, we hurt our own cause when we threaten insurrection before we’ve given the democratic process a chance to work.”

Amen.

I sometimes wonder about the people who beat their chests and cry out for armed revolution...do they really want to see what the United States of America will look like after?

Do we have the George Washingtons, Thomas Jeffersons, Ben Franklins in today’s world to see us through that? I doubt it. Our moral compass and intellectual understanding as a people is far less than those men.

I’m not afraid of what’s coming, whether it be violent or non-violent. I’m prepared for both. But crying out for a fight will only find you in one...and you may not like the outcome.

Lol... That statement could have been made 100 years ago, today or 100 years from now. At some point it has to be determined that the "political" process does not and will not work.

We are not going back to coexisting with marxists as they continue to indoctrinate our children and inundate us with propaganda through the media. WE REFUSE!

Things ARE going to change in a big way soon. Either we will be able to completely destroy socialism in this country via the 2010 and 2012 elections and repeal every last shred of forced collectivism that has been implemented or there is going to be secession. We are done F'ing around and were not going to tolerate the tyranny of socialism any longer!

Personally, I think secession will the course that must be taken. I just cant see "deprogramming" enough of the people who vote for marxists to be able to push through even the smallest of repeals. Not to say I wont try like hell, but it wont be possible. at least not until we have divorced and let their society collapsed to the point of Detroit and worse. I think even in its current state the population of Detroit is still incapable of voting for anything other than a socialist, which says a lot about how low its gonna have to go before a certain segment of people finally abandon their "programming".

This cannot be fixed through forced coexistence. The "democratic" process is broken because the people vote for ideologies that cannot coexist. Its always been about the people, never the government. To get away from this tyranny we will have to get away from the people who vote for it.

"No one spends as many years at CNN as he did and not have some of their BS rub off on them."

Beck was only on CNN for a little under three years. January 2006-October 2008

I NEVER watch CNN. So other than my Mother getting mad at Beck and refusing to listen to him while waiting for Rush.

I really don’t know that much about his time at Cnn.
