On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck grew increasingly agitated as he fumed over people who insist that they have fundamental rights but don’t realize that such rights come from God.
Warning that if people don’t forcefully assert that their rights come from God, then the government can take them away, Beck explained that the Founding Fathers created the Bill of Rights in order to prevent the government from ever infringing on the God-given inalienable rights of the citizens.
Somehow this all culminated in Beck telling his listeners to ask their children where they think their rights come from and “challenge them, get in their face” and “teach them a lesson; push ’em!”
And he meant that literally: “Well, they’re going to cry, I’ll hurt their feelings. PUSH ‘EM!,” he screamed, “because if you don’t do it now, it’s going to be much worse when they’re pushed and they’re shoved and they’re shot. Push them! Teach them!
