Archive for the ‘u.s. camps’ tag
Glenn Beck, transcribed by me:
“We are a country that is headed toward socialism, totalitarianism beyond your wildest imagination. I have to tell ya, I’m doing a story tonight, that I wanted to debunk these FEMA camps, I’m tired of hearing, you know about them? I’m tiring of hearing it. I wanted to debunk them. We’ve now for several days done research on them. … I can’t debunk them, and we’re going to carry the story tonight. … It is our government, if you trust our government, it’s fine. If you have any kind of fear that we might be headed toward a totalitarian state, look out. Buckle up. There’s something going on in our country that is … uh … ain’t good.” — FOX & Friends, early March 2009
If you look here, Beck denied the contention about the FEMA concentration camps.
All, absolutely all, that Beck is doing is fear-mongering. No more, more less. To suggest we are headed toward a totalitarianism state is ridiculous, beyond reproach and does a disservice to the many leaders that preceded him that I know Obama venerates, including Lincoln, Jefferson, Martin Luther King Jr., and many others. And, if you are interested, here is the piece of legislation Beck seems to be inaccurately referencing: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-645
