Granted, there is a small chance of social breakdown, that Glenn Beck is scaring folks with every night on his misguided show. However, this social order is not likely to disintegrate and so Beck is a demogogue scaring the sheeple daily. Here is the definition of a demogogue:
A leader who makes false claims and preys on the fears of men in order to gain power. Yep that is Beck all the way. He is a kook. He is a John Bircher who thinks there is a communist under every rock. He would be a pathological paranoid guy if it weren't planned.
Anyone who has as little compassion on the unemployed, yet fears people losing the ability to feed themselves is a power monger.
He is spewing the John Birch message that supported Joe McCarthy and the ruination of many lives in the 1950's. He is a disgusting POS.
If he were really worried about the national debt and the possibility that the bond vigilantes will raise interest rates too high, then why doesn't he oppose tax cuts for the rich? Because he is not only a demogogue, but he is a greedy demogogue.
This is how you know a demogogue. It is a person who claims to fear fascism of a new financial order while somehow explaining that this new financial order is communistic. Communism is the control of business by government, permanently. Fascism is control of the government by big business. That is what we have and it is not communism! What a dick.
Here are two distinctions that really matter as to the difference between Glenn Beck and those who care about mainstreet. I wrote this on a comment on Business Insider:
If Sara Palin is this guy's buddy you need to see what a demogogue she is as well.Archive Link
