Beck's Burden: Someone Has to Tell the World 'We're on the Titanic [and] Not All of Us are Going to Make it'

Glenn Beck spent most of his radio broadcast today continuing to rail against comprehensive immigration reform and urging his listeners to go to Washington, DC on Wednesday to stand with him and several Republican members of Congress who are seeking to permanently torpedo the legislation.

Near the end of the program, Beck recognized that most of his audience will not be able to put their lives on hold in the middle of the week to travel to DC to support this effort and, in fact, he totally understands because he doesn't really want to have to do all the things that he is doing either, but he must because nobody else will. 

Beck became increasingly worked up as he went through the litany of massive projects he is working on, explaining that he is trying to "fundamentally transform the media" on television, radio, and the internet while building motion picture production and distribution capacities at the same time that he is putting on massive stage productions and even writing novels.

"I'm hemorrhaging money," Beck bellowed.  "I have spent all of the money that I have put away, because I believe in something."

Saying that when he finally sees "somebody else step up to the plate, I will so gladly go away ... You can have my effin' company, you can have it; I don't care!" But so far, nobody has done so.

And so Beck must continue to bear this burden, because somebody needs to be willing to stand up and tell the world that "we're on the Titanic, not all of us are going to make it and unless you have some urgency, we're all going to die":
