Last week, Glenn Beck was telling his audience of Tea Party activists that they “are the people that our Founders saw, the wise and the honest” who would rise up and save the nation when it was on the verge of collapse.
Today on his radio broadcast, Beck stepped it up a notch, telling his audience that “governments fear the individual,” which is why the South African government imprisoned Nelson Mandela for twenty seven years. So, of course, Beck then told his audience that they are exactly the sorts of strong, courageous individuals that the government fears.
“They fear the next Nelson Mandela,” he proclaimed, “and I tell you, you are the next Nelson Mandela. You are the next Martin Luther King. You are the next Gandhi. You are the next Abraham Lincoln. You are the next George Washington”:
