"Politicians, however, are there to protect you, and they're pushing a ban on certain symbols and words, a ban on guns, a ban on talk radio." [Fox News, Glenn Beck, 1/11/11]
In the wake of the pushback he's getting from the shooting in Tucson, Arizona this past week, Glenn Beck is finding it necessary to ratchet up his fear mongering and he's doing it at a fevered pitch not seen since the days when he first sported a pair of Lederhosen on national television and started interviewing himself. Yes, Beck has brought the Hitlerspeak back to let America know that in the sea of crazy, he is the one lone sane voice that is going to save them from marching to "Der Commandant's" cadence.
This time he is claiming that certain Washington lawmakers, at the prompting of President Obama, are using the tragedy to once again take away our guns. In doing so, Beck has succeeded in prompting the biggest buying spree of guns, especially the exact same kind of gun used in Saturday's shooting, since right before Obama's election, when he spurred Americans to get their guns before their rights were taken away for good.
"It's not just me that is scared of losing my rights," says Beck. "Gosh darn it, I have the best interests of my fellow Second Amendment rights believers in mind when I tell them 'Get out there and buy your weapons, you idiots, before it's too late.' Is that so wrong?"
Attempts to find video of this latest on-air stunt have proven to be near impossible as any existing videos of Beck touting Americans to take back America by force, if necessary, have been scrubbed from YouTube. No explanation has been given.
