I'm typing this as I'm watching the clip. Let me say this: At no point in time does the opening statement from the alleged retired Command Sergeant Major make any sense whatsoever. "...[Y]ou see the other Texans and Arizonans that aren't gonna allow to be arrested (sic)...uh...because of the first and second individuals at war. So your second, third orders of effect (sic) are gonna become your Bubbas hunkering down and being anti-government."
I'm done. Thank, God.
Uh. Wow. Ummmmmm...that was weird. Really, really weird. That segment had to be rehearsed at least once before it was shot. Beck's incredulity is just way too disingenuous to be "off-the-cuff".
Brad from SadlyNo! points out what should be obvious but seemingly escapes these Faux News asshelmets:
I just don’t get it.
During Bush’s presidency people like me were called traitors on a fairly regular basis because we didn’t show Bush the proper deference when he’d do some goofy shit like choke on a pretzel. Now we have guys on the teevee that are openly talking about armed insurrection against a democratically elected government and it’s considered the most patriotic and pro-American thing a feller could do with hisself.
This sort of thing doesn’t really offend me because I think most of Beck’s viewers would back down from starting a new civil war once they learned that it would likely lead to Cheeto rationing. But I am amazed at the sheer cognitive dissonance involved in simultaneously believing that it’s treasonous to peacefully oppose an unjustified war but that it’s patriotic to lead an armed insurrection against the government because they want to pay you unemployment benefits. If there’s a weirder political movement than American conservatism, I’ve yet to see it.
I like the chyron at the bottom of the screen when there's only about a minute left. 2014: Survival skills become vital.
Tell me about it. Using my secret time machine, I was able to travel to Beck's post-ObamalypseTM,©1 future and return with video:
The future looks awesome!
