  • That was great.

    Through most of the speech, it was amazing how exactly it resembled what Glenn Beck has been saying for the last year or so.

    Then the speaker addressed himself to the soldiers, exhorting them not to lend themselves to the commands of brutal leaders who viewed them as cattle, as cannon-fodder, as machines. Glenn, too, spent a couple of programs likening the elite's notion of the public to a contrast between the cattle (the populace) and the ranchers (ivy-league circles who feel they're better fit to make public policy than the rest of the citizens)

    But when the speaker shifted over into "We must FIGHT !", the resemblance ended. He was addressing himself to soldiers, so that implied fighting with violence. And this would be falling into the SAME forcefulness which he was castigating.

    Beck is clear about this, so he NEVER advocates fighting with violence ...

    Thanks !
