Conservatives love to use works of fiction as the bases and rationalization of their beliefs. Whether it be “24,” Atlas Shrugged, The Manchurian Candidate, or pseudo-fictional works such as “The Passion” and ”The Bible,” facts are almost always universally subordinate to sensational and justifying fiction. We can add a new one: The X-Files.
Apparently, Glenn Beck’s ratings are through the roof after his move to Fox News. It’s not surprising considering his core audience tunes in for reinforcement of their fear, bigotry and outright looniness. And boy, the looniness has flowed from Beck’s mouth like vomit from a drunk Irishman (Happy St. Pats!).
The two clips below are as follows:
Glenn Beck promoting his show and his segment on the FEMA “concentration camps” where Obama is going to round up all the dissenters when he establishes his brand of socialist-totalitarianism-with-a-splash of baby-killing-fascist-marxism.
Beck states, “If you have any fear that we might be heading toward a totalitarian state, look out. There is something happening in our country and it ain’t good.”
And here is the 1998 movie, The X-Files:
While I don’t expect a delusional asshole who barely graduated high school to grasp the theoretical and practical differences of the scary words he constantly throws around at liberals, such as “socialism,” “fascism,” “totalitarianism,” and “anarchy,” I think he owes it to his viewers to keep his outlandish conspiracy theories as fresh as possible. Maybe he can use the following on his next show:
“High School Musical: A liberal conspiracy to queer up our kids?”
“Kung Fu Panda: What can we do to prevent animated Chinese aggression?”
“Activia Yogurt: Is the government keeping us close to the toilet for a reason?”
“Isn’t Carlos Mencia enough evidence that all Latinos should be deported?”
“Subway’s $5 Foot-Long Ad Campaign: Is the liberal fast-food establishment making us gay socialists?”
