Glenn Beck Has A Dream

Community organizing? Isn't that a bad thing?


YouTube - Glenn Beck: "We need to start thinking like the Chinese"


Think Progress � Glenn Beck Has A ‘Plan’ To Sell Books With March On Washington On The Anniversary Of MLK Speech

Yesterday, while promoting his latest book at “a festive campaign-style rally” in The Villages in Florida, Fox News host Glenn Beck announced that he was crafting “a 100 year plan” that will be “radical” and will “restore our nation to the maximum freedoms we were supposed to have been protecting.” In his speech, which Media Matters captured on video, Beck told his followers, “we need to start thinking like the Chinese“:

BECK: I’ve done a lot of reading on history in the last few years and I was amazed to find that what we’re experiencing now is really a ticking time bomb that they designed about 100 years ago, beginning in the progressive movement. And they thought, “you know what, if we just do this and this and this and this, over time if we do it in both the Republican and Democratic parties, we will have our socialist utopia.” Well, I say again, two can play at that game. I am drafting plans now to bring us back to an America that our founders would understand. … We need to start thinking like the Chinese. I’m developing a 100 year plan for America. A 100 year plan. We will plant this idea and it will sprout roots.

At the rally and in a letter on his website, Beck said that he planned to organize a series of conventions in seven regions of the country, where his supporters can go to learn about “self-reliance, community organizing, the economy and how to be a political force in your own neighborhood and country.” The conventions will culminate in a new book by Beck called The Plan and a march on Washington to launch it:

- All of the above will culminate in The Plan, a book that will provide specific policies, principles and, most importantly, action steps that each of us can take to play a role in this Refounding.

- On August 28, 2010, I ask you, your family and neighbors to join me at the feet of Abraham Lincoln on the National Mall for the unveiling of The Plan and the birthday of a new national movement to restore our great country.

Hot Air’s Allahpundit notes that the date of Beck’s DC event “happens to be the anniversary of the ‘I Have a Dream’ speech” by Martin Luther King, Jr. “Eschewing the title of ‘leader’ is thus a curious display of modesty from a guy who thinks his book launch is worthy of a modern-day March on Washington with him in the MLK role,” writes Allahpundit.

But not everyone thinks Beck is just elaborately promoting his next book. “He might just be trying to sell books, but there are much simpler ways to sell books,” Media Matters’ Ari Rabin-Havt told the New York Times, adding that “Beck sounded more like a presidential candidate than a pundit.”

Glenn Beck, in my humble Libertarian view, is alright.

You should go to the march and spy on it and report back to us.

I think Glenn Beck is a whackadoodle. And having it on that date is just so pretentious (not to mention inappropriate).

At least we get to express ourselves in freedom.

As far as 'snake oil'

You gotta be careful

I hope some people saying this also argue that having any sort of massive political rally on that day is inappropriate. Should this be like sports retiring a number, except in this case retiring a day for political causes instead? Let's not forget this is the date last year when Obama gave his convention speech...Or is this day just off-limits for conservatives?

Glenn Beck said that because we elected Obama, in five years, there will be raping, pillaging, and cannibalism.

This cannot be emphasized enough.

That is EXACTLY why I voted for the man. No one, and I mean NO ONE like pillaging more than me.

Glenn Beck - Current Events & Politics - Glenn Beck: Don't Say I Didn't Warn You

Right after listing all the "predictions" he made and got right, he tries to do a "weather" style forecast for the types of things that will happen five years from now.

He never says he's exaggerating. In fact, he says those examples should scare you about the future.
