Glenn Beck Cult Holds Creepy Revival at Lincoln Memorial in DC

People gathered Saturday in DC at the Lincoln Memorial as part of an event that Glenn Beck was hosting. The rally was a hybrid neocon pep rally/religious revival, consisting of pictures on a giant TV screen of famous moments from American history, along with inspirational music, waving flags, and talk of destiny and God from a loudmouth Fox News preacher who hides the insincerity in his eyes behind a thick layer of glasses while weeping in breathy sobs to mask his laughter.

A speaker at the event even said "Glenn Beck is one of America's most trusted and honored citizens."

With Beck being inserted into the mainstream consciousness as the "patriot" opposition to Barack Obama and his gang of globalist thugs, so many who now wave the Gadsden flag and give lip service to the Constitution watch Beck with fawning adoration, having forgotten or choosing to ignore the kind of person the man really is.

Just a few years ago Glenn Beck implied that Ron Paul supporters were dangerous potential terrorists, contributing to the mainstream media marginalization of Paul's campaign in favor of neocon candidates like John McCain and Mitt Romney who advocated more war and more loss of civil liberties. Beck also led the swarm on grassroots Constitutionalist candidate for TX governor Debra Medina in a calculated attempt to knock the feet out from under her campaign before she could outshine the mainstream Republicans in the primary.

In 2009, without any basis whatsoever, Glenn Beck falsely stated that the Holocaust museum shooter, James W. von Brunn, was a "hero" to people who question the official story of 9/11 -- a transparently deliberate attempt to associate the Truth movement with violence.

Even in non-political settings and non-9/11 related issues Beck has shown contempt for average people he considers himself superior to. A good example of this is an old segment on his radio show called "Moron Trivia" in which he would call convenience stores and ask the beleaguered workers there trivial questions about current issues while secretly ridiculing them to his audience. Though Glenn Beck gleefully pretended he was doing the cruel segment against his own will, the fact is that if he truly didn't want to do it, he wouldn't have. It's much like a sadistic husband beating his wife, all the while voicing his regret over what her actions are making him do.

Sinclair Lewis once said, "When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross." Though Beck talks of God and stopping injustice, he advocates the hazardous and bloody neocon foreign policies that have killed countless innocents, made America more hated around the world, and further weakened our national security. Indeed, Glenn Beck's establishment-backed rise as a "patriot leader" is simply Plan B for shepherding the patriot movement back to the fake left/right machine, and channeling public outrage at Obama's actions as President into a form that can be manipulated and controlled...the same way Obama did for liberals who opposed the actions of George W. Bush.

Manipulating the people of a country that have been the victims of psyops over and over again, and who are looking for leaders to believe in, is not only self-serving, but mean. Because Beck has the showmanship and organizational backing to pull off his deception he has decided to take his thirty pieces of silver and proudly display them as "Godly."

Some are falling for it. Many others are not.

The only accidentally true statement Glenn Beck uttered during his speech at the rally is something he said when talking about World War 2 and the memorial in DC "You cannot coexist with evil."

Perhaps a few activists in 9/11 Truth shirts should have shown up at Beck's rally. (If any did, I don't know.) That way some real patriotism and justice could be injected into Beck's adoring mob.
