Glenn Beck, who is once again out on the road campaigning for Ted Cruz, hosted his radio show remotely today from Nevada, where he and David Barton, the right-wing pseudo-historian who is running a pro-Cruz super PAC, fretted over Cruz’s third-place finish in the South Carolina primary over the weekend and warned that exit polls show that America is headed for a violent revolution within the next ten years.
Beck, who is currently in the middle of “a fast for Ted Cruz, our country and the Nevada caucus,” repeated the warning that he made on his program earlier this month, when he predicted that the election of anyone other than Cruz will result in America descending into revolution within the next decade. Barton agreed, saying that poll results have convinced him that the threat of violent revolution is a very “real thing.”
“I want to make sure that you hear this because the media will spin this out of control and they’ll make it into another crazy conspiracy theory,” Beck said, “but I just want to point out: 1999, I talked about Osama bin Laden in New York and said that their would be blood and bodies in the streets and the signature would be Osama bin Laden and nobody believed me; in 2006 and 2007, I talked to you about the financial crash, a crash of biblical proportions based on the housing market; I told you that there would be a caliphate and everybody mocked that. I’m telling you, we are on the path for revolution and a violent revolution. Right now, we’re talking about a velvet revolution, but if we make the wrong choice at this point – and I’ll make this case based on the polls and what we’re seeing and nobody in the media … they’re going to mock it. Don”t mock this warning! Please, don’t mock this warning.”
