Beck's Post-Election Plan: Buy Farmland And Guns

The right-wing freakout has begun, as their world shatters with the re-election of a supposed Kenyan Muslim Marxist. Now that America is doomed, Glenn Beck advises his listeners to move to Republican counties, buy farmland, get their kids out of the socialist public schools and stock up on guns and ammo. Watch:

BECK: I won’t make a deal with the devil… I will tell you last week we purchased more farmland as a family. May I recommend if you have a chance to buy farmland, you buy farmland. If you live in the east may I recommend get the hell out of the east. Find a place where you are surrounded by like-minded people and the best way to find those people is, you should probably look at the maps on how counties voted and get away as far as you can from where huge densities of people who are like, 'I just need FEMA to help me.' But get your kids away from the school that is indoctrinating them that socialism is okay. May I highly suggest you get grandfathered in to the Second Amendment today. Oh, and don’t forget the ammunition.

I think I may have commented to the same effect before but, reading your posting about Glenn Beck, I am genuinely surprised that someone who, to a European's mind, appears deranged is let loose on a TV channel. I appreciate that the First Amendment gives such licence and probably over here they would be confined to the print media (Melanie Philips for example) but the man does appear to be unhinged and in a position to influence people to their detriment and I don't just mean buying his line of jeans.

Richard, Just do a search on my blog for Glenn Beck and you'll see ample evidence that he's deranged. Yes, he does influence people to their detriment; in this post, he tells his followers to arm themselves against the "others," i.e., the Obama supporters.
