    If you start watching at about 10:15 Glenn Beck says that Assange wants the U.S. to "lock down internally and to balkanize."

    But that's not what Assange really said.

    Transcript: TIME Interview with WikiLeaks' Julian Assange - TIME

    Clearly Beck did some artful editing to make it seem like Assange is saying the exact opposite of what he actually said. It should be clear that when Beck claimed to be a libertarian he was really just joshing, and that he's a fraud. Beck is a statist, and Julian Assange is the real defender of liberty.

    This comes as no surprise to say the least.

    Glenn Beck is getting nuttier by the day, I swear. I cannot make any sense at all out of these remarks. What in the world is he trying to say??

    Beck: "If you are white or you are an American citizen or a white American citizen you are pretty much toast".

    Beck: I don't identify as white, why do black people identify as black?

    Beck is "tired of the race thing," doesn't "think the race thing works anymore"

    Beck on being a white Christian who "loves America": "I just can't win"

    Beck calls for "a new Ellis Island," suggests that immigrants effectively live in a "prison" if they can't speak English

    Beck decries "the anchor baby thing," asks "Why do we have automatic citizenship upon birth?"

    Does Assange actually believe that the U.S. is going to "reform in such a way that they can be proud of their endeavors, and proud to display them to the public"??
    I don't think he thinks that. I think the bigger point that Beck was trying to make is what is the reason that all these left wing societies and organizations are supporting Assange?Because they know that the U.S. is going to "lock down internally and to balkanize" instead of "reform in such a way that they can be proud of their endeavors, and proud to display them to the public"??


    Beck gets it wrong sometimes just like all other pundits. Nothing new here, but the substance of what he is saying, I believe, holds true and that what Assange is doing is going to create distrust of the government. Once you do that, you put in another stepping stone to revolution.

    Yes, because it's all Assange fault that it was the government doing all these things in the first place and then withholding said information from the American People that creates distrust. :cuckoo:

    I agree with you on that point. I actually kinda agree with Assange that we should know what our gov is up to.

    The point is that this is what revolutionaries have been waiting for. You can only have massive change if you create a crisis. This plays right into their handbook whether Assange wants it to or not.

    This is why Bill Ayers said he is as much as an anarchist as he is a marxist. You create anarchy first in order to bring about radical change. Same type of mind set as creating distrust in one's government.

    I can see how PC would run with this.


    As for Beck? What do you expect form a guy who's always ranting about how the Jes (or at least one master Jew) owns all the media except Fox News and runs the entire world- bringing down regimes at a whim?

    Haven't watched Beck in months. He's just gotten too far out there for me.
