Glenn Beck Explains The Debt Ceiling Showdown Using 'The Deer Hunter'
On his television program last night, Glenn Beck explained the showdown taking place in Washington over the approaching debt ceiling by pointing to the film "The Deer Hunter," specifically the scene in which Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken play Russian Roulette.
Claiming that President Obama is willing to collapse the entire country through default, Beck compared him to Walken's character in the movie, saying it is impossible for Republicans to "negotiate with a man who is willing to pull the trigger."
"Republicans," Beck said, "are dealing with Marxist revolutionaries who want America to default so they can scrap it all and start building a Marxist utopia from scratch. Remember, this isn't crazy talk":
