Glenn Beck Has Really Lost It: ‘Prepare For A Time’ When Government Comes To Silence Me (Video)

glenn-beck-rantEither Glenn Beck is one of the best actors in all of political media, or he’s literally slipped into some of the deepest depths of insanity I’ve ever seen from someone not committed to some sort of mental facility. While his rhetoric has always been fairly ridiculous, lately many of his comments seen more like someone on the verge of a full-on mental breakdown than someone who should be taken seriously.

Yet, sadly, millions of Americans do take him seriously.

Well, this past week the former Fox News host went off on a 10 minute rant that including everything from the Baltimore riots to some sort of elaborate government plot to kill people like himself.

Honestly the whole thing was so completely ridiculous that nothing I say can possibly do it justice, so I’ll just let Beck’s idiocy speak for itself.

“We’re being set up, guys. We are absolutely being set up,” Beck said. “And I don’t know, this is what I pray every night: ‘I don’t know how to do this, Lord. I don’t know what you want. I don’t know… I don’t know what you want.’ I can’t wake up anyone. Oh, if I had the voice of an angel. I can’t wake anybody else up. They’ve smeared me. I’ve helped them smear me. I don’t have any credibility. Nobody is listening. I can tell you what’s coming. I’ve told you every step of the way. I know what’s coming next.”

Oh, but it gets worse.

“This is a show [the Baltimore riots],” he stated. “We’re watching a script and a play play out in front of us. None of this stuff is real. Those riots in Baltimore. That wasn’t real. At some point, there will be a straw that breaks the camel’s back, and it will set the whole country on fire. And what happens? We will cry out for police help. The police will be overwhelmed. The DOJ will say, ‘We’re going to take over policing, we’ll coordinate it from here.’ And you’re done. It’s lights out, republic.”

Yes, that’s Beck saying that the riots in Baltimore were all a part of some elaborate conspiracy for the federal government to take over the policing of the entire nation. You know, because that’s completely practical and logical.

But then he let the real insanity flow.

“If you look back at history, what happens to people who have voices and can cobble together people and be a leader?” Beck asked. “If you go back to what happened with the Armenian genocide, what is the first thing the Turks did? What is the first thing the Nazis did? You have a Night of Long Knives. The Armenian genocide. Any of the Armenians that could lead, any mayor, any writer, any person that was a hero in war, in one day, in each city, they would kill about 1,000 people. They’d just slaughter them. And they were all the leaders of the community. Anyone that people would rally around and follow. They were killed, day one. They just disappear, or they’re killed.”

“There are 10 million people that listen to this show,” he continued. “They cannot kill 10 million people in one night. You were born for a reason, and you’re listening to this show for a reason. Prepare for a time when voices like mine or others are no longer heard and yours is the only voice.”

Ah, what would a good Beck rant be without some sort of reference to Nazi Germany?

I think it’s absolutely comical that he actually believes he’s someone important. Granted, when it comes to the conservative media he’s fairly well known, but other than being right-wing entertainment he’s an absolute nobody. But for him to suggest that it’s basically just a matter of time before the government begins trying to kill people like him is just next-level insanity. It baffles me that people take this fool seriously. Then again, he’s clearly pandering to crazy people; it’s not exactly the hardest demographic to get to believe some sort of outrageous nonsense.

And if there’s one thing that Glenn Beck does exceptionally well, it’s specializing in pushing utterly outrageous nonsense.

    I am not even sure I have the words to express how unbelievable this guy is…It pains me to think that anyone in the world would not think Glenn Beck is just a self centered, autofelating, vapid twerp that just struggles to stay relevant and famous. I guess that amping up the sensationalism brings in the money. Putting yourself on an imaginary alter of sacrifice must somehow elevate him to demigod status in the eyes of his followers.

    • I-RIGHT-I

      Freedom of speech is something that is going away now thanks to people like you Jim. “Useful idiot” is what Lenin called you.

      • worrierking

        So your idea of freedom of speech is shutting down any one who doesn’t agree with a demented shock jock?

        Since when did freedom of speech earn someone freedom from consequences for their speech?

      • I-RIGHT-I

        The First is there not just to protect speech you find attractive though that’s the way you operate. Beck can say anything he wants just like the know-nothing pundits your side trots out.

      • worrierking

        Where the fuck did I, or anyone, else say that you or Beck don’t have the right to speak your mind? Someone speaks, another responds. Both have the freedom to say whatever they’d like to say. Where’s the problem?

      • Jim T

        We all have freedom to speak our minds. I would be the first to admit that I am sorely ignorant and have much to learn. However, I didn’t say that Mr. Beck shouldn’t say anything, I was just commenting on the sad state of affairs when what he says is considered relevant to anyone in anyway. I wish that I could go on the radio or internet and get rich saying silly things too. 🙂

      • FD Brian

        actually you are confusing Freedom of Speech with Consequence Free Speech. We all have can say what ever we want with very few limits, but we are not free of the consequences that our speech causes.

      • I-RIGHT-I

        Feel free to distribute “consequence” when ever you feel the need but remember that actions have consequences too.

      • FD Brian

        you should proof read your replies to ensure they make sense.

      • I-RIGHT-I

        Possibly I’m talking over your head. That’s too bad.


    I just so happens the Federal Government is already asking if Mat Drudge is too powerful. This kind of thing happens EVERY time the communists have taken over a country. The Progressives are not fooling anyone. We knew exactly what Hillary Clinton meant when she dug up that old code word “Progressive” that always meant communist.

    • You IDIOT! Are you pulling this crap out of your ass?! There is no Code and there is so communist plot! Geez! What planet are you on and what is the color of the sky in your world? The only conspiracy is these evangelical whackadoodles who distort and lie trying to change our government into a Theocracy like IRAN.

      • I-RIGHT-I

        So, you’re a fellow traveler and don’t even know it? Sweet. That makes you one of Comrade Lenin’s “useful idiots.”
        People who don’t know their own history are doomed to repeat it. Don’t worry about a thing. As the brains of this operation I’ve got your back whether you want me to or not.

      • Please don’t do me any favors. Oh, and by the way… don’t waste what little brain power you have remaining. I think your close to running on empty.

    • Jim T

      In what dictionary?

    • snarky

      professional troll…

      • I-RIGHT-I

        Ahem….I AM THE TROLL OF TRUTH using my immense powers of (being literate) reason and God given morality to fight the never ending battle for truth, justice and the America way.

      • snarky

        spare me your voodoo…11,000 posts puts you firmly in the mom’s-basement-ssdi-former-gov’t-employee camp

      • I-RIGHT-I

        I do go on don’t I?!!!! I can’t help it Pard so many low info public educated dummies to correct and so little time. Do you have a question or do you simply like to run your stupid mouth?

        You should use me as a valuable resource since your daddy obviously left much about you untended.
        Who’s your daddy? I’m your daddy.

      • snarky

        “so little time”?? brother you have nothing but time, something tells me that sitting behind the counter at that gas station gives you about ten free hours a day to share you’re cowboy wisdom.

      • I-RIGHT-I

        Reasonable men can disagree but if you want to RIGHT you’ll agree with me.

  • Chris Hudson

    Just please proof your writing. Please.

    • Jim T

      My grammar is awful, I know…..

      • Chris Hudson

        That’s okay. I’m an English Prof and editor and when people say things I like, it irks me to see mistakes others can use to discredit the thoughts. When the others do it, it makes me laugh.

      • Jim T

        LOL>>>unfortunately I think I do the best I can without the aid of a grammar nazi sitting right beside me….My best friend is also a Professor of Sophomore English at Cincinnati U. You would think I can do better. 🙂

      • Chris Hudson

        I am a terrible typist and do it all the time. I like your position on things though. Keep going.

      • Jim T

        Thanks Chris, I don’t think that these comments have to be so vile all the time. A little humility goes a long way.

  • bestfriend

    I completely understand what Glenn is saying. For years I have had similar suspicions. Nearly every day on my way home from work when I would stop to check in on my mother I would notice a dark car (like the kind you see government people drive on the TV) parked across the street, and when I left it would still be there. A co worker told me it might have something to do with me not voting for Obama.

    Not so quick, people. He might be crazy or crazy like a fox. This is insane talk to most of us but there is a large number who embrace this crazy like there is no other truth. This sounds more like a call to duty, trying to stir the extremists in to action.

    Read it again, think about how his listeners will react to his being silenced for good. What will they do to prevent that?

    • jchastn

      Robin, this is a call to doodie. Not a call to duty.

  • Clintoris

    2 years ago Beck predicted the Islamic Caliphate in the middle east which has taken its form in ISIS.People laughed at him but he was correct all along.
