Truth to Power

Glenn Beck brings da crazy

Glenn Beck scares Fox host into hiding under table

Fox News hosts are known for viewing the world around them with alarm – but Glenn Beck goes far beyond most of his peers at Fox in his belief that the future looks “really bad.”

In a visit Friday with the hosts of Fox & Friends, Beck even managed to terrify Gretchen Carlson beyond the degree to which she is normally capable of terrifying herself.

Beck’s greatest fear – which he suggests is shared by his friends in the military and the FBI – is clearly not the prospect of widespread poverty, hunger, or homelessness. Rather, it appears to be thenotion that worldwide civil unrest could precipitate a civil war between what he calls the “bubbas” and the United States government.

Laying out a convoluted scenario, Beck suggested that the military is preparing for a situation where “something happens down on the border. You’ve got the rancher who is protecting his land, people are starting to come over … there’s a shot fired, it ignites things. ATF, FBI come in and arrest that rancher. How many people are going to say, ‘Wait a minute. … You people knew this was going on and you did nothing to protect us.’”

At that point, Gretchen Carlson slid down and hid under the coffee table, saying, “Tell me when the world’s okay to come back out.”

“I really hope you’re wrong,” Steve Doocy added.</em>

So, after fearmongering for years about illegal immigrants, the coming “reconquista” and general around panic over things brown, now they hide under the desk? Wimps.
