American History According to Glenn Beck: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 4.33.51 PM

In case you missed it, Right Wing Watch has compiled footage from Glenn Beck's bizarre three-day long Independence Day 'historical' celebration in Salt Lake City, Utah earlier this month. Attendees included Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), and Michelle Malkin.  Naturally, I use the word 'historical' quite loosely. 

Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 4.35.01 PMThe event, for those unaware, culminated in an 'epic rendition of America's story,' as told from the moon's perspective (portrayed by Beck himself). According to Beck, all of human history is just cycle-upon-cycle of Satan trying to wipe out God's chosen people in order to ultimately destroy God. I don't know about you, but I must have dozed off in my high school history class when this chapter was being taught.

As Media Matters points out, Beck's events, depending on your perspective, are 'either gatherings of epic historical significance or yearly reminders of Beck's inflated sense of self-importance.'

  3. Of COURSE Beck would be playing the moon. He's so cheesy that no one else was considered for the part.

  4. A fine example of poor scholarly aptitude. Quoth Bugs Bunny, "What a Maroon."

  7. His "moon face" looks like a old, dried up a**hole, which he is...

  8. I can't bear to listen, but I'm assuming he recounts the Mormon version of history, with the Garden of Eden in Jackson Co., Missouri, Jews colonizing the Americas before Columbus arrived, Indians cursed with dark skin, and Jesus paying them all a little visit?

  9. He is beneath mention. Inadmissable among sensible people He just pieces things together to meet ignorant prejudices garnished with snake oil.

  11. Moon, Mormon, Moron - those are the only three things that Glen Beck is only good at.

    Glenn Beck Officially a Lunatic.

  13. Glen lost viewers and advertisers in almost record time with some of his rants. However, he did retain a core of faithful listeners and he milks them for every cent.

  15. This guy is nuts. So is anyone believing such tripe. What a waste of electricity.

  16. He lost me when he mentions Satan, who doesn't exist, except as a mythological scapegoat for humans who do evil things.

  17. Replace Satan with Beck saying Sauron and the conservative news world calls him batshit crazy. The irony is both of those characters are of the same ilk, fiction.
