Glenn Beck opened his television program last night with another behind-the-scenes look at one of his morning meetings, during which he hailed himself as one of the few courageous leaders willing to stand up in an effort to give people hope … and for which he’ll probably be killed or imprisoned.

But being so bold and courageous is also dangerous, Beck said, because during “every revolution, people like me or people like Ted [Cruz] or anybody – Sarah Palin – anybody that can cobble together people and say ‘no, no, rise up, stand,’ in a revolution, those are the first people to either be absconded and thrown in prison or just killed. Because you can’t have leaders show hope”:
