…or he’s off his meds. In any case, Beck is currently on an ‘I Need Attention / Mo’ Money’ Tour:
Former Fox News personality Glenn Beck said he believed Tuesday morning that he was capable of leading a “new civil rights movement” in America after claiming that fascism was coming to Europe.
Appearing on televangelist James Robison’s Life Today show, Beck commented on the popular Occupy Wall Street movement.
“We are in an era now of a new civil rights movement,” he said. “We are the ones that have the righteous calling for the civil rights movement. We are the ones. When you try to say that Martin Luther King would have been there with the rapes and the murders and everything else with Occupy Wall Street, I’m sorry, you are wrong.”
Don’t forget Beck is also going to start thrilling the nation with weekly “Reagan-esque” speeches from his newly built “Oval Office” set.
It’s funny how someone can remind you of someone else, whether it’s because of a resemblance in appearance or a similarity in personality or thought-process. Remember John List and the reasons he gave for killing his entire family?
List was described by a psychiatrist as having obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. A psychiatrist who interviewed List testified that he saw only two solutions to his family’s financial and health problems – either go on welfare or kill his family and send their souls to heaven. He was especially concerned about the soul of his daughter, Patty, who showed little interest in church. She was also active in the theater department, smoked marijuana, and was interested in Wicca. He was afraid that welfare would expose them to ridicule, show that List did not love them, and violate his own authoritarian father’s teachings to always care for and protect the family. [Wikipedia]
See, Beck says he has a righteous calling (!) now — and that’s not any old ordinary calling. Beware of men who claim to be burdened with such a grandiose affliction, especially when they say it’s for another person’s own good.
