Glenn Beck Claims that Obama’s Election Was Actually a Marxist Coup

On his radio show today Glenn Beck proclaimed that the 2008 election was really a Marxist coup. He said, “There is a coup going on. There is a stealing of America, and the way it is done, it has been done through the, the guise of an election, but they lied to us the entire time.” If Obama’s election was a coup, what was the 2000 election?

Here is the audio courtesy of Media Matters:

Beck said, “They think they — and they — they — you know what? At this point, gang, I’m not sure, they may be able to because they are so far ahead of us. They know what they’re dealing against; most of America does not yet. Most of America doesn’t have a clue as to what’s going on. There is a coup going on. There is a stealing of America, and the way it is done, it has been done through the — the guise of an election, but they lied to us the entire time. ”

He continued, “Some of us knew! Some of us we’re shouting out, you were: “this guy’s a Marxist!” “No, no, no, no, no, no.” And they’re gonna say, “We did it democratically,” and they are going to grab power every way they can. And God help us in an emergency.” (Because the Bush was so effective during emergencies like 9/11 and Katrina).

If the Obama’s unquestioned democratic election was a coup, what was George W. Bush’s election in 2000? Was that a Republican coup? I love it when people like Beck lament that their America is being stolen. What rights have they lost since Obama was elected? They have lost the right to tax cuts that only benefit them. They have lost an administration that only cared about multi-millionaires like Beck.

By the way, Beck needs to learn that Marxism and Socialism are not interchangeable terms. He should understand the difference. There is nothing Marxist about Barack Obama’s policies. In fact, some liberals are disappointed that Obama has not moved more to the left. Beck is offering nothing more than rhetorical comfort food for Republicans who are still bitter about the 2008 election.

  1. Obama is a Fabian Socialist – this is a gradualist approach which may not turn America into the Soviet Union overnight – but relies on a creeping erosion of the rights which the founding fathers wisely built into the American political system. And of course Socialists hate wealth – but only in the hands of their political opponents. Socialism is essentially the politics of envy and daylight robbery. More than anything Socialists hate anyone who claims the moral high ground – and has wealth to back up their influence in the political system. Hence the twin pronged attack both on the rich and on Christian morality. Quite rightly they reckon that if good people are either impoverished or compromised or both then the victory of the cynic and the pragmatist will have been achieved. But of course the overall result is a debased society where life is cheap and nobody is rich – except for the ruling class of politicians whose self-appointed mission in life is managing and indocrinating the masses “for the benefit of all” Or so the propaganda goes… God Bless America, sure glad I don’t live in “the land which once was free” as the late Larry Norman put it in his song “The Great American Novel”. Go ahead and Google it – he hits the nail on the head – and not much has changed since Larry penned that song in the ’70’s. Only God can save America now.
