Glenn Beck’s Address at Restoration Weekend

Pages: 1 2

America has the choice again.  The same choice, with the same people.  But in 1968, the riots were in the streets.  And because the same people are there, and they’re trying to recreate ’68, let’s look what happened in the 1960s.  We had four assassinations.  Let me ask you — there were four Presidents in the history of our country that have been assassinated.  How many of them have been killed by Marxists?  Three.  Three.  The only one that wasn’t a Marxist was John Wilkes Booth.  And he was a revolutionary.  He wanted to dissolve the republic.

In the 1960s, JFK was killed by a Marxist, whipped up by a foreign power.  RFK — killed by a Jordanian who didn’t want any more support going for Israel.  The Palestinians were oppressed.  MLK was killed by a racist; Malcolm X killed by the Nation of Islam.  Do we have any of those seeds that are being planted right now?

They will recreate ’68.  The question is, are we strong enough to stand?  There is no moon shot.  There is nothing to have us look to the heavens.  Because NASA’s too busy telling Islam how great it is.

Here’s where we’re headed.  Possibility — World War III.  Because Israel has a right to survive, Israel has a right to live, the Jews have a right to be left alone by the rest of the world — they will defend themselves, as they should.

I sat with Benjamin Netanyahu, probably five years ago now.  I could’ve done the interview today.  I said — look, here’s what’s going to happen.  Nobody’s going to do anything about Iran.  The world will do nothing.  And then, if this moment of hope — this is where I had it wrong — this moment of hope will be on the edge of peace, and you will be forced to strike.  Because it will be all lies.  And the world will turn around and say it’s the Jews that started all of this.  And it will be by design.

It’s not a moment of hope.  It is a moment of chaos.  I should’ve listened to Ahmadinejad.  As a Twelver himself, he knows — when he says, “Oh, Allah, give me the strength to hasten the return of the Promised One,” the question I had for my comrades — and I use that word exactly the right way — my comrades at CNN — I asked them — what does he mean?  What does he mean by “hasten the return of the Promised One?”  Who’s the Promised One, does anybody know?  Nobody!  Oh, he says that religious junk, it’s just for the — no, it’s not.  He means it.  The Twelfth Imam is one spooky dude that crawls out of a well.  You believe it, don’t believe it — I don’t really care.  They believe it.  They believe it.  And the way to hasten the return of the Promised One is to create global chaos.

Well, gee.  That sounds like Occupy Wall Street, quite honestly.  Create global chaos.  World War III — possibility.  Guaranteed anti-Semitism not seen since the 1930s.  Guaranteed economic — not depression; collapse.  Collapse.  And civil war.  You cannot put this genie back in the bottle.

But there is something else.  There’s something that I’d like to focus on here.  These things are coming.  But so is this.  Healing.  Healing and profound light, should we choose it.  Now.

De Tocqueville was right when he said America is great because America is good.  Why are they attacking our churches?  Because it’s the source of our goodness.  It’s the source of our faith, our hope, our charity.  I don’t care what church you go to.  I don’t care what synagogue you go to.  That’s what’s connecting us with each other and something higher than ourselves.  Of course they’re attacking that.

I am a guy that nobody would’ve even hired, nor should they have, 15 years ago.  I’m a recovering alcoholic that screwed up my whole life.  I betrayed everybody in my life, I built a whole life of lies.  Until I admitted that my life was out of control.  Until I was at the point of life or death — which do you choose, life or death?  Interesting that that’s what Moses said.  Choose life or death.  I chose life.  But I didn’t know how.

America and the rest of the world is at that same point.  Choose! Light or dark, life or death! Choose today!

It was because of good friends, a loving spouse, who all allowed me to hear the truth — you suck. And it’s your fault.  And then, by the grace of God, and the strength of faith, that I stand before you today.  That’s what has to happen in America.

My mother died because she got to the point, when I was a young teenager — she got to the point where she had to choose life or death.  She chose death.  Some people will.  Some people have one drink.  And they say — wow, you know, that made me really feel like garbage, and I could probably have a problem with that, and they never drink again.

I don’t know where everybody’s scale is.  Some are going to have to perish.  Unfortunately, they will choose that.  You can’t save everybody.  We have to now look into the mirror ourselves and say — what do I choose?  And will I dedicate everything in my life?  There is nothing less at stake than the very republic in which we have all enjoyed and the freedom of mankind.  That’s what’s at stake.  Are you up to the challenge of saving it?  The answer should be — yes!  If we just have 10 percent.  Ten percent is the tipping point.

Principles of God are everywhere.  Ten percent.  He asks you for 10 percent.  Tithe 10 percent is what He asks.  But in the end, if you really understand tithing, and you really do it, you know it’s 10, then it’s 11, then it’s 15, then by the time you’re — it’s all of it, whatever.  He takes it all.

The same thing with evil.  Just be 10 percent — you’re 90 percent good.  But you can take 10 minutes here.  You’re 90 percent there.  That’s good enough.  Look at them, they’re not even 90 percent.  And you allow yourself to be 90 percent good.  Do it 90 percent.  And pretty soon, it’s 89, 87, 85, 70, 60.

That’s how you get people to put people into gas chambers.  Little pieces at a time.  You don’t show up — nobody shows up like a storm trooper and says — hey, what do you say we gas all these people?  You’d say — you’re out of your mind, you’re a crazy person.  It takes time.  Give me 1 percent today.  Just say something bad about them.  Start to dehumanize them a little bit.  You know what, just take away their radio.  Yeah, maybe they should shop at another store.  That’s how you do it.

So let’s use the positive, and fix the 10 percent.  Let’s use that God-given concept and change the course of the entire planet.

Culture.  Culture is under attack.  And all of our children — they’ll watch, whatever it is.  They’ll listen, whatever it is.  And how many Americans say — oh, my kids know the difference.  No, they don’t.  This is the culture they were raised in.  There is nothing that’s the standard.  They don’t have what we had.

I remember walking around in grocery stores when I was a kid.  I’d say something, I’d do something, I’d mouth off at somebody.  An adult would come around that corner of that grocery store and say — knock it off.  I know your father.  He wouldn’t like that.  You’d be like, oh crap.

Even if they didn’t know our parents, they still said knock it off.  We were a team.  We had shared values.  We don’t.  The values that are being jammed down our throat are just that.  They’re being jammed down our throat, they’re being enforced through intimidation, because we don’t believe in those things.  The things we do believe in we won’t stand up for.  Because we’re afraid.

The media is coming undone.  The lies are being exposed.  There’s a tipping point, and it’s all about here.  It’s about to tank.

I’m setting on a journey to redesign the media.  I don’t know if I’m going to be the one that does it.  But somebody will.  Because this system doesn’t work, and it’s got to be built on the truth, and a new way of doing business.

I was just in Nashville.  I talked to some of the leaders of country music.  And I said — look, the culture is under attack.  There’s got to be a coordinated effort to take some music and move us ahead, some inspiration, anything.

Financial sector is going to fix itself.  Not in a good way.  But it’s the Kondratiev wave.  Kondratiev was the first economic advisor for Stalin.  Ended with a bullet in his head.  Because he had to think about which is better — communism or capitalism.  Ah, it’s Stalin asking the question, I think it’s communism.

He said let me think about it, I’ll get back to you on it.  He had some time to think about it in a gulag.  He came up with the Kondratiev wave.  Green shoots.  That’s where that comes from.  Green shoots.

You’re in winter.  Then you see a green shoot.  That’s somebody having an idea.  Wait a minute.  It doesn’t have to be that way.  I got a better idea.  In their garage.  A kid.  Little Billy Gates.  Little Stevie Jobs.  They have an idea, a green shoot.  And then, that idea starts to roar to life, and spring is here.  An exuberance.  And then the arrogance of summer — it’s always going to be this way.

And things get ugly, and people start making stupid moves.  Because it will always be summer.  And then the leaves start to change.  And a few people say — wait a minute, look at the leaves.  Wait a minute, something’s going on.  What’s happening?  Something’s happening here.  Others say no, it’s always like — it’s going to be summer all the time.  Then the leaves fall off the trees.  And dummies — this is what he actually said that actually got him thrown into the gulag and executed — he said — this is where communism goes wrong.  They try to take the trees and uproot them, and put them in greenhouses.  It doesn’t work.  You’ll kill all the trees.  They need the time to rest, and regenerate, and green shoot.

The financial sector will fix itself.  But our faith-based life we must be responsible of.  Our education — we must stand guard on our education.  Our university system is corrupt to the core.  To the core.  We need to, as people, decide — do we continue to support this that is corrupting our society and our children?

I have a book on my desk from 1946.  It’s called “Hitler’s Professors.”  They went in in 1946 and wanted to document, what happened here?  What a surprise.  Was in the universities.  But we can’t just stand guard against the universities, because too much has been lost.  We must, as people, guard our current history, our current truth; correct ourselves the things that are wrong — the missing pieces of our founders, the missing pieces of Woodrow Wilson.

The fifth-best President?  All the professors across, in every grand institution all across America, say — oh, Woodrow Wilson, one of the top five Presidents of all time.  The guy was a monster.  A monster.

We have to be in charge of our own history.  If the republic is to survive, it’s going to survive because of us as individuals, and what we do.  The political system is going to fix itself with jail time.  There are people now in the streets calling for guillotines.  That’s not America.  Jail time is, for those who have been involved in corruption — jail time.  No one is — we are a country of laws, and not of men.

We need to go back and listen to George Washington.  He had all of the answers in his farewell address.  Here’s a guy who never, ever wanted to serve.  He didn’t want to do those things.  At 16 years old, he just wanted to go be in the navy.  And his mother is crying — oh, George.  He goes up the gangplank, gets onto the ship.  Oh, George, how could you leave your mother?

And he comes back down, and he said — never, mother.  I will not leave you.  Every step of the way, that man did what the right thing was.  Not for him, but for someone else.

I have given up trying to find those people in Washington.  Washington takes them in, chews them up and spits them out.  Great.  The lesson should be — we’re putting too much emphasis on Washington.  Why do we need to send one lamb into the lion’s den?  Shut the damn lion’s den down!


The power is with the people, not the corruption in Washington.  When we change our homes, when we change our communities, when we change our states, Washington changes.  The answer will not come from Washington.  Only more of the cancer will come from Washington.  The cure comes from us as individuals and our homes.

I was reading Abraham Lincoln’s last inaugural speech.  Times have not changed.  At the time he gave that speech, the world was on fire.  America was.  And rage was the in feeling.  Vengeance.  They started it.  They did it.  Get ‘em!  Punish ‘em!

The inaugural speech — his Vice President got up to speak first.  And he was hammered.  And his speech, basically, was that — get ‘em!  And let me tell you something else about the South!  They cause all these problems!  He’s hammered out of his mind.  And Lincoln had to be sitting back there and say — this is the worst Vice President.  It’s going to take Joe Biden to beat this guy.

And Abraham Lincoln got up to speak.  He didn’t want to be there.  He didn’t want to speak.  He certainly didn’t want to say the things that he had to say.  Because nobody wanted to hear this.  Everybody wanted blood.  My son, my daughter!  My family’s been ripped apart, killed, maimed!  My country!  Because of these people over here.  Get ‘em!  You got ‘em!  Now take ‘em out!

When Grant had Lee, Lincoln received a telegram — I have him.  I have him.  What should I do?  Lincoln’s response was — let him up gently, and tell him to go home.

So now, at the second inaugural address, his Vice President in a drunken stupor, Abraham Lincoln gets up.  Starts walking towards the podium.  And there’s a guest on the podium who hates Abraham Lincoln, and is so enraged when he sees him, he actually stands up and lunges towards Lincoln.  A police officer happens to be there and stands in between them.  And the guy gets control of himself, and looks up at the police officer and President Lincoln, and says — sorry, I slipped.  And the police officer said — because he recognized him, because he was sitting with the daughter of a very famous Northern senator — she was the Paris Hilton of her day, and he was the Leonardo DiCaprio of the time.  And so the police officer said — oh, I know who you are.  Sure. I understand, Mr. Booth.  And Abraham Lincoln walked on.  Rage.

Abraham Lincoln came to the podium and just said — with malice toward none, and charity for all.  It is the message of every great leader at times of trouble.  It’s what Bonhoeffer tried to say and no one would listen, because it was too late.  It was the message of Abraham Lincoln, and Gandhi.  It has always been the underlying message of the United States of America — with malice toward none, and charity for all.

The next 18 months are going to be unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.  Darkness beyond our wildest imagination.  But I’m here to tell you — as darkness grows, so does the light.  You’re about to see flashes of light unlike you’ve ever seen before.  Because this time, it’s happening in America.  Americans cannot turn their eyes from it.  It’s not overseas, it’s here.  And they will rise.  And they will rise with malice toward none, and charity for all.

Thank you, and God bless.

    Wow! David Horowitz, my favorite news editor, and Glenn Beck, my favorite political prophet and patriot of our time, have hit the nail on the head; and if we aren't attached to the movement to change America at the grassroots, we are truly dead wood. Forget about complaining about the banks or the cost of living. You do not have the right to be heard. Speak now, or forever hold your peace. WAKE UP, AMERICA!

  • Asher

    At these times stay focused, calm, and connect with the right people who build a nation not destroy it. The truth will set us free, we are up against a maniacle Nazzi Movement that wants to destroy everything positive that God and Mankind have built. Thanks to David and Glenn and others who are showing courage.

  • Gylippus

    Thanks Glenn, for sounding the alarm at this late hour. You have made a difference.

  • Scotsirish

    Read "Bonhoeffer". It is prophetic to US at this point.
    I thought of little else at Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. Will this be the last Thanksgiving that we are not completely enveloped by the evil standing over US?

  • mrbean

    Glen Beck says, " But 1968 was also the year of the moon shot. When you had pigs rolling around in the mud, you also had man walking up on the moon. And America was split. Am I Woodstock? Or do we reach out and touch the stars?

    A concretization of this issue of reason vs. emotion is in Ayn Rand's " Apollo and Dyonisus" – an analysis of two contrasting events of 1969: the glorious achievement of the Apollo 11 moon flight and the mindless mud-wallowing of the mindless hippies an druggies at the Woodstock rock festival.

    Listen ro audio at:

    • Herman Caintonette

      Glenn Beck and Bill Oh'Really don't do history, although they claim to.

  • Gunner57

    We have to start a movement to stop funding ALL government and union pensions. I am so sick of hearing from people who never took ONE stinking risk in their life lecture me about fiscal astuteness when not only did their government steal MY money, now they are proposing to steal my 401K and IRA to shore up government and union pensions. They sit around dreaming about how THEY will spend the pension money that we gave them!!

    My wife's sister and her husband are shopping for a shore house to "retire" too while they are still in their 50's. "Oh, they worked so hard", BS!!!! They never lost a night's sleep worrying about a paycheck in their lives. GO BACK TO WORK!!

    I want their pension money!!!!!! I paid for it t!!!!

    • Amused

      Blow it out your arse jackass . If your 401 or IRA is at risk , just thank the oligarchs whose arses you been sucking….and continue to suck .

      • Blaze Pascal

        The Left is very articulate. I admire them.

        • Herman Caintonette

          Unfortunately, erudite expressions are wont to go over the heads of troglodytes like Gunner. You have to speak in language they can understand, and Amused did precisely that.

      • truebearing

        More vacuous drivel from the leftist claiming to be a centrist.

        BTW, please don'y sit when you speak, it really muffles your voice.

  • Zam

    We need more people like David Horowitz. As for Glenn Beck, he still needs a little work, but, I think he can do it. I think.

    This article reminded me of the fact that the only way I can handle the word "progressive" is if it applies to a slot machine or not. Yes, I like the progressive slot machines. And yes, the word progressive really fits in nice when it involves slot machines. These type slot machines have big jackpots. Oh yeah! Anyway, I hope this entry is not read by Al Gore (you never know) and he tries to put an end to my enjoyment of playing the progressive slot machines by claiming too much slot machine (especially the progressive ones) play contributes to "global warming" and makes everybody sweat.

  • Zam

    Of course, we all know Gore would claim the progressive slot machines are even worse–causing hot-sauna-like weather conditions all over the earth–even on the top of Mt. Everest. OK, it is true–I do sweat when I play the progressive slot machines–but that is due to the vibe I get (from the progressive slot machine in question) while I am putting my money in it. I guess this vibe is not all that much related to global warming but more so bankruptcy. Ahhh yes, the progressive slot machines. They are the best.

  • Amused

    Oh , I'm crying Glenn Beck crocodile tears ! Hows about Glenn move's out of his $ 22,000a month rental , ya know just to show us lowly fellow Amewricans that we live on the same planet .
    YUP , "it was way back there in ' 68 that we had glorious astronauts walking on the moon and hippies wallowing in the mud at Woodstock " …news flash -It was late July of 69 , and early August of '69 for the moonshot and Woodstock respectively ….and were was BecK ? Most likely in an alcoholic stupor , and David ? LOL…David was practicing Marxism , Hating Amereica with a fervor , encouraging literal thousands to do the same .
    Lets see -I was in Plieku , with Dragon Mountain as my backdrop …reading the Stars and Stripes about Woodstock , looking up at that moon as I wondered what those guys saw looking back at us ….and there was David …inspiring people like SDS ,and Weathermen with his radical B.S. , his printed words dripping with hate …….and Beck ? probably rolling in some back alley .

    • Blaze Pascal

      Speaking of money, did you get a peek at Michael Whore's summer cabin?

      • Amused

        dont know a thing about it Pascal , but it sounds more like your speed than mine chump .

    • Herman Caintonette

      Beck was a little too young for that. Most likely, airplane glue.

    • Jules

      To Amused,
      i'm "amused" as well. David Horowitz changed with an epiphany of truth about the failings of the Left ideology and Glenn Beck cleaned up his act too. Sounds like you are still wallowing in hippy "make love, not war"-ville. i bet you're still are wearing the same backpack at the OTW protest. Carry on, Garth and don't 'bogie' that joint.

    • truebearing

      Do you interpret the Christian teachings to include calling people "arses" or ranting angrily at everyone you see? it seems to me you may have missed the part about forgiveness too. Oh, and wishing your fellow man goodwill.

      • Amused

        I'm not the one claiming to be a paragon of christian teaching , I simply know the dogma far better than most of you "alleged christians " and rdub your noses in your own hypocrisy and hatred .

        HOW ???? LIKE ALL THE ARSEHOLES posting on these threads / Oh yea man , it's just overflowing with forgiveness & good will ….lol….I can feel it every time you lift your legs on the hippies , who BTW ,WERE actually for good will , they didn't need to forgive because they did not judge , unlike you areseholes .
        I simply have no patience with SANCTIMONIOUS-SELF RIGHTEOUS -HYPOCRITES .

        • Amused

          In addition , I need not forgive , for I do not judge , I merely describe what you are , if you feel you need forgiveness , then you should know , I am not the ONE to dispense it .Besides that , forgiveness come ONLY after REPENTANCE. And repentance does not mean you continue to do that which you desire to be forgiven of . David , an atheist, merely redirected his hatred of America towards those he brands as haters of America , while Beck , a Mornon , is not a christian in any sense of the word [that is if you even know what christianity is and it's core belief ] but simply a blithering reformed drunk , responsible for inciting to fear mongering and hatred , which seems to have worked very well .
          Do not pontificate to me , from your position of utter ignorance and hypocrisy .

          • truebearing

            You're really losing it, or should I use the past tense? One of these days you're going to have a stroke or a heart attack. Calm down and stop your insensate frothing.

  • Amused

    Well guess what Glen ,Dave and the rest of you underaged at the time, sycophant parrots – most GI's marvelled at Woodstock , no one knew who the hell Beck was , and very few read the anti American rag Ramparts . Yea there were a few that spat on us in Seattle [not literally ] but from a distance sop we could see , but they were most likely Daves people .In San Fran , DC , NYC we were welcomed , not in parades but personally hand to hand ……by those horrible hippies …didnt see or hear thing from David's ilk . When I hear you schmucks put down Woodstock and the hippies , all you are doing is showing what total asssssholes you are .The hippies NEVER set out to destroy the country , or burn anything down all though most of you are too stupid to know that . That'd be more like davids crew .

    • Blaze Pascal

      Now you're just blabbing.

      • Amused

        Oh really ? Then REFUTE what I've just said with facts .Did YOU serve in the 60's ? Were you old enough [or even born yet ] to witness Davids antics at Ramparts ? You and your cohorts are the ones engaging in babble with your fractured fairey-tales

        • Stephen_Brady

          As a matter of fact, I DID serve. Delta CO/2/501/101st, in the Ashau Valley, 1968-69. I was a sniper, with 47 confirmed kills, and 7 probables. I hunted the ba$tards likes deer, and don't regret one squeeze of the trigger on my Model 70.

          Then, I come home and to literally do battle with the "people of peace", on the streets of San Francisco. Hand-to-hand with seven of the most vile pieces of filth I've ever seen in my life. When three of them were down, the other four ran off screaming in fear.

          I had more respect for Victor Charlie and the NVA. At least, they put their a$$ in the grass. I respected the draftees for the same reason.

          However, any issues I've had with any ot them, including David, ended when any of them admitted that they were wrong, and apologized for their actions. You see, I believe in redemption, and people can change for the better.

          Sorry to see that you're still under the power of your hate. I strongly suspect that your handle … "Amused" … is the opposite of what you feel in your heart. I pity you …

          • Amused

            I doubt that Brady , so 47 confirmed kills eh , and then you came home to do WHAT ? Hate ? ….your own blinds you , I left Vietnam and it's politics behind on March 18 , 1970 . Perhaps your imaginary battle in San Fran came after someone sliipped you a tab of acid , or you simply go too drunk at the bar . I doubt you even knew who David was , nor did those" imaginary filthy hippies you so bravely fought off " .[ in your imagination] Your "story " wreaks of the anecdotal , and I'm not impressed . Funny , I sprent 6 months in San Fran before and after my discharge , in and out of uniform , and NEVER even saw confrontations as the ones you describe . Maybe you came home STILL looking for a fight .

          • Stephen_Brady

            And your unit was?

            I simply don't believe you. You are a liar, and a charlatan.

            You are a leftist troll, falsely claiming to have served your country, so that you can use that against younger people, on this website. Had you ever been in combat, you would have known that bravery has nothing to do with it. Like the cockroaches they were, the hippies came crawling out of allies and attacked a man in uniform. They picked the wrong guy …

            … which you would quickly find out that you have done, if you ever met me in person.

            By the way, you ARE aware that you misspelled Pleiku, right? What division were you with? What route did the camp sit on, and what was the camp's name?

          • Amused

            Camp Enari Dragon Mountain 4th Engr Bn/ 4th ID . Just outside of Pleiku ,Provincial capitol of Gia Lai Province Ql 14 & Ql 19 [in country 19Dec.1968]….that do it for ya tough guy ? Maybe you oughta get a hold of your model 70 and head back there huh ?
            " hippies crawling out of the allies and attacked a man in uniform " ???? Gimme a break moron , what kinda of f–king drugs were /are you on ? BTW I'm 63 arsehole and you're still wet behind the ears , not to mention full nof sheet .

          • Stephen_Brady

            You idiiot, I was born in 1948. Can you do the math, you moron? I'm 63, and if I ever met you, I'd rip you a new one so fast your balls … if you have any … would fall through.

            Oh, thank you kindly for your service to the greatest and most exceptional nation on earth …

          • Amused

            Gee !~born in '48 and still a fu–ing juvenile arsehole . I kinda doubt that too Brady . That is rippin' anyone a new one .
            BTW you're fuuking welcome , but don't thank me , rather, say a prayer for those who never came home .

          • Stephen_Brady

            I see that we are no longer "amused" …

            As for hose who never came home, I say a prayer for them, every day. I AM a Christian. This includes my best friend and spotter, PFC Donald "Smitty" Smith, who was blown in half by a 152mm howitzer shell, about ten feet away from us both (in the runup to "Hamburger Hill"). Why he died, and I only had minor injuries, I'll never know. But his death haunts me, to this day.

            When I read the vile insults and taunts you throw at people, it reminds of Smitty, was a better man than a million like you.

          • Amused

            Brady , let me just make this simple for ya , you can go F–k yourself . I knew a few arseholes like you , There were SC units where I was , never knew too many that would brag about their kills , but there were a few sick MF's like you , guys who wore strings of ears around their neck . As far as VILE remarks , you've spewed more in the few posts I've seen than any hundred I have posted .At my age , I have no patience for B.S. or some of the sanctimonious S.O.B.'s that crawl onto this blog , you no doubt are one of them .And if you're still wondering why someone else bought it and not you , then listen up jackass , here's a newsflash that anyone who ever went over there should know by now -it's because THAT"S THE WAY IT IS . Now go kick yourself to sleep tonight .

            How can one argue with the level of hate and self-loathing you have? I will not, however, stoop to the levels you have, in the filth that spews out of your mouth with each word you speak.

            You DO know that when the enemy finally destroys this nation, you will be one of the first to be put in front of a firing sqaud, right?

            Why did Smitty die, and not me? Because a DEMOCRAT lied, and men died. Ever heard of the Gulf of Tonkin, braniac? I volunteered, and so it would have been on me, had I bought the farm. He was a draftee, and LBJ became personally responsible for what happened to him. Everyone who voted for LBJ carried that responsiblity.

            By the way, I think you've been watching Apocalypse Now too much, recently. It's addled what little mind you have left …

          • Amused

            Well tough guy , I knew about the phony Gulf ofTonkin , BEFORE I was drafted . I knew the War was a BUST , BEFORE I got drafted . It took McNamara 4 years to admit what we all knew from the start . And if you're DUMB enough to think it was JUST Democrats who got us into that war , then you really are dumber than you sound . Forget about Eisenhower? The first American advisors went over there under his watch .The first American advisors went in .Maybe you forgot "The Domino Therory " huh meatball ? And you're still stupid after 50 years !! Go see a shrink if you can't handle why you came back and your buddy didn't , but I can save you a pile of money ,it's because bullets and shrapnel are not particular about whose flesh they are tearing into. Trouble is , schmucks like you STILL haven't learned a bloody thing . You hate hippies , you hate liberals you hate democrats …you hate ….I hate NO ONE , but that doesn't mean I have to remain silent when the same ole' jerks of the world are spouting their phony patriot B.S. line .Horowitz , Beck , limbaugh …they're nothing new .

          • Amused

            chech that -it took McNamara 40 years, and into his 80's .

          • Amused

            And if you recall , WE COULDN'T VOTE , or did you forget that TOO . That came under Tricky DicK . Remeber him ? "Peace with honor " my asss , it was advance to the rear at a high rate of speed .McGovern was the only one with brains but the same sheetheads called him a commie , just like the jerks here on this blog , most of which are chicken-hawks to begin with ,Bet you haven't figured that out yet niether , eh dimbulb ?

    • truebearing

      Now I'm beginning to see where your brain damage comes from. Thanks for the history.

      Hippies did plenty of damage, inadvertently or not. They were an incredibly self-righteous bunch of spoiled, narcissistic moralists who wanted to create an Eden with a mish-mash of alternative religions and drugs. They were extraordinarily judgemental, and therefore hypocritical because that was one of their raps against their parents. Many were indolent, self-indulgent jerks, and many more were weak-minded followers who wanted acceptance and to be hip. They adopted beliefs without understanding the consequences of those beliefs, and they did drugs they didn't realize had some major consequences. It was ultimately a destructive social movement. I can see you didn't escape unscathed.

      • Amused

        I can see you werent there and are merey a repeat-parrot . What you've just done is described David's attitudes [ lol…maybe minus the drugs /he'll never tell ] BTW , were you in Vietnam ? Have you EVER served your country ? Or put in 40 years in the workforce … REAL work that is ? You're basically part of generation X =good at video games , unconcerned until life at home with the folks is threatened , and in school [high school ] most likely couldn't find China on a map Your weak and pathetic attempt at psycho-analysis is sophomoric and a joke . Run along little self-proclaimed "super-patriot " …you're still wet behind the ears .

        • truebearing

          Wrong again, bemused. I was born in 1955. I saw plenty, but was ever-so-slightly too young to go to Vietnam. I did have plenty of first-hand experience with Hippies though. I went to college at the UW-Madison. There were lots of Hippies and leftists of every stripe. There still are. They've never grown up.

          You know, alcohol can damage the liver and make a person chronically angry. Maybe you drink too much. Try life sober. Get some herbs for your liver. I would start with Milk Thistle. It can actually regrow some of your liver. Get help.

      • Jules

        Don't forget hippy Charles Manson and his "flower-child," family. Their 1969 heinous home-invasion massacres in L.A. allegedly ended the utopian, "make-love, not war" movement.

        • Amused

          Manson wasn't a hippy , do your homework , by the time the 60's came around , Manson was a full fledged jailbird , having spent the better part of his life in prison .
          and no , it wasn't ' make-love not war ' for Manson , never was . Coming out of prison Manson was an avowed racist . Jules you're ignorant of the FACTS . By killing Sharon Tate and her freinds ,and the LoBiancos , Manson hoped it would trigger a race war , which of course was part of his socio-pathic delusion . Maybe YOU forgot the Army Captain who slaughtered his wife and three kids , and claimed it was drug-crazed hippies ….he's still in Jail to this day .

          • Amused

            Manson , the Army Captain were just riuders with their own agendas …..just like David Hoirowitz who's communist /marxist /Anti-American rants no doubt inspired more idiots like vSDS and The Weatherman , none of which were for love nOR peace .
            That's the trouble with all you parrot-naysayers ,and critics of the hippies ….you're all talking out your arseholes ….in lazy purposed IGNORANCE.

    • truebearing

      The difference between you and Horowitz, besides the 75 IQ point advantage he enjoys, is that he had the self-honesty and desire for truth to change his ways. You're stuck in a bitter sinkhole of self-loathing that manifests in attacks on those you are envious of, or who you see as more successful. That's a lot of people to hate.

  • Amused

    The people David "inspired " in the 60's were JERKS , and now 40 or so years later , David's inspiring a new crop of JERKS . And mentally challenged like Mr.Bean are picked up long the way with other malcontents , racists and plain ole' arseholes .

    • truebearing

      Take the whole pill next time, Bemused. You could use some extra help.

      • Amused

        You need to take a smart pill ….in extra doses .

        • truebearing

          What rapier wit! That stung like a gentle massage.

  • truebearing

    I always cringe when I hear Beck's predictions because he is so often right. A prophet's job is fairly thankless because he doesn't want to be the bearer of bad news, but Beck does it, and does it well. God Bless the man.

    • Amused

      Bow down before your gods truebearing , you have all the earmarks of a bent over slave .Try doing a bit of earnest investigation regarding your bozo gods . Your ad hominems are juvenile and unimpressive … try refuting a single statement I've made , you weren't even there nimrod .

      • Amused

        Didn't think so truebearing , you dimbulb .

        • Amused

          ,,and what was that truebearing ? Glenn Beck a WHAT ? A prophet ?

          You bloody deluded fool .

          • truebearing

            You seem quite disturbed, Mr. Bemused. Did you take your medicine? Did you break the pill in half again?

            Try commenting on things you know something about. You'll have more success and get more respect. How about commenting on insensate rage? Or long term side effects of too much LSD?

        • truebearing

          You never do think, Bemused. Your intellectual process is more of a massive, repetitive dry heave.

      • Maxie

        "Your ad hominems are juvenile and unimpressive ….".

        So are yours "arsehole"

      • truebearing

        You're not well, are you. You really are confused, Bemused.

        It is incumbent upon you to prove me wrong, or more precisely, Glenn Beck wrong. Get to work, Einstein.

        • Amused

          As I said , anyone who affords the idiot Beck , prophet status , is nothing more than a bloody fool, . And if you fail to recognze his method , then that alone would put you [AND Maxie ] in the category of a 75 IQ . LOL….Becks couldn't be more than a 90 or so , which makes him smart enough to fool dupes like you two .And BTW nimrod , you called him prophet ….lol…it is not incumbent upon me to prove anything . lol….even ther thoroughly biased and brainwashed morons at Faux-News knew they had to give him the ax .

  • John_Kelly

    Six thousand years of recorded history has shown that men as well as nations invariably fall in to one of two categories; builders or destroyers.

    It takes hard work, patience and unwavering vision to build a nation but only a few years of "self-destructing" ideology to place a great empire in the dust bin of history.

    Tough times often produce champions who seem to appear out of obscurity and David Horowitz & Glenn Beck are two such champions.

    David & Glenn I salute you guys as two of the greatest PATRIOTS & BUILDERS in American history.

    Keep up the GREAT GREAT WORK.

  • Amused

    Six thousand years of recorded history , has failed to teach you that david has given up his marxist/ communist anti-American position , only to change his stripes to xenophobic ,facist nationalism . Mixed with a bit of twisted religionism [David's an atheist ironically ] , to bring in dullards who really know nothing of the religion [s] they claim to profess .

    • mrbean

      So who is your hero? Is it Noam Chompsky?

  • Amused

    Noam Chomsky's just another areshole …my HEROES ? Harry Truman , Winston Churchill , Unknown heroes in my Company who did not come home ,Ross Perot , Sen. McGovern ,Bibi[Netanyahu ] ,Golda Meir , VonBonhoeffer , Generals Patton ,and Eisenhower ….anythingh else you want to know ?
    Mr.Bean Brain ?

    • truebearing

      I'll bet they are proud to have you as follower. Would you like to take this opportunity to say something with the word "arse" in it?

  • Amused

    And forgive me mr.Beano , I left out MLK , …and the Bonhoffer I mentioned , for the benefit of the numerous CINO 's residing here [Christians In Name Only ] ,that is Dietrich von Bonhoeffer , the author of " The Cost of Discipleship " among other books , who was executed in a nazi concentration camp towards trhe end of the War.

    • truebearing

      Do you think Bonhoffer would approve of your constant raging? Maybe you should read him again, and again, until you understand him and how totally incongruous your behavior is with those you claim to admire.

      • Amused

        I'm not the one here hypocritically using bible quotes as a hammer , that;s all you conservative schmucks . As for von Bonheoffers standards , I doubt ANYONE on this blog could even come close , no , not even the "prophet " Beck , the preopagandist Limbaugh , or the demi-god Horowitz .Nor am I the one here claiming that everyone who opposes the skewed Repo/Con agenda is a drug crazed godless filthy hippie , leftist ,marxis , communist …..that's all YOU and your ilk ,True Ballbearing.
        I simply take exception to your politics of hatred, denigration, lies and half-truths , based in purposed misinformation, and incomplete knowledge of all related subjects and that goes for your equally deluded counterparts on the Left .

  • Amused

    BTW , TRUE-BALLBEARING , you need to dfo your homework on the prophet Beck , who mis-spoke on atleast 200 occaissions on , having to back-peddle on most all of them .Unfortunately for MOST of the drooling Fox audiences , little attentionb was paid to these NUMEROUS retractions , false aspersions , character assasinations , purposed misinformation , false claims , and outright lies that left his mouth , and did their damage .
    Smarten up ballbearing , Becks a modern day Goebbels inspiring fellow idiots like rocker Ted Nugent to make statements like supporters of Obama -Care should be shot . Reeeeeaaaaaal christian huh ?

    • truebearing

      You are a very ill man with delusions of granduer, just for starters. Your rage is at a pathological level and your writing at junior high level. You don't have the intellectual standing to criticize Beck or Horowitz. These are simple facts, not intended as insults.

      Maybe you had some serious mental damage from your days in Vietnam…I don't know, but rather than thrash you like a rented mule, I feel it is better to let you know that I recognize your illness and hate, and that given its severity, can see that you are wracked with psychological pain. I'm sorry you are in this seemingly perpetual state.

    • truebearing

      You are incoherent with rage. Calm down and stop foaming at the mouth. No one takes a person seriously that rants uncontrollably.

      • Amused

        truebearing , for all your banter , ad hominems and psuedo-psychology , you haven't refuted a single statement I have made . 1955 ? you weren't of age , for the wqar NOR the 60's . You been talking out your A-hole all along . JUST as I suspected all along . Run along little wind-up parrot , and dont you worry for me , I'm not the one who hasn't got his screwed on straight , that'd be you partner .
