Glenn Beck delivered another one of his incoherent, stream-of-consciousness lessons on today’s radio program, inspired by Justice Antonin Scalia’s recent statement that, in a time of war, it was entirely possible that the Supreme Court would allow the government to set up internment camps for those perceived to be enemies of the nation.
This, of course, is exactly the sort of thing that Beck has been warning about for years, so he seized on Scalia’s statement in order to deliver some bizarre rebuke to President Obama for supposedly being responsible for the biggest “missed opportunity in all of world history” by not being like Jesus when he was elected and uniting the entire country, and instead choosing to be evil and punish his enemies.
We genuinely have no idea what Beck is talking about, but according to him, America is headed down a course to where people who do not believe in climate change or support abortion rights or Obamacare will soon be rounded up and tossed into prison camps.
“It was a group of people who said ‘we know we’re right,'” Beck said. “Global warming; sound familiar? We know we’re right and if you’re standing in the way, you’re standing in the way of Manifest Destiny. Sound familiar; Obamacare? We know we right and if you don’t, you’re standing in the way of progress. Sound familiar? Sound like abortion advocates? We know we right and if you don’t agree with us, there’s no place for you in this state. That’s why Scalia is saying it’s going to happen again”:
