    Glenn Beck Exclusive: Warns of ‘Reichstag Event’

    Glenn Beck Exclusive: Warns of ‘Reichstag Event’

    Media phenomenon Glenn Beck recently sat down with Newsmax for an exclusive interview offering his take on everything from President Obama, to the threat to talk radio and even a worry that our Constitutional government may disappear after a “Reichstag” event takes place.

    The candid, wide-ranging interview appears in the October issue of Newsmax magazine, and is included in the special report "Glenn Beck Wants You!" that takes an in-depth look at the TV host whose Fox News show has been breaking ratings records since it burst on the scene in January.

    The exclusive video of the interview with Beck is also available online to subscribers to Newsmax magazine – sign up today and get our special report on Glenn Beck, an Emergency Radio and access to exclusive video — Click Here Now

    Beck, who is also thriving on the radio, in bookstores and on the comedy circuit, sat down with Newsmax magazine's Editor in Chief Christopher Ruddy and voiced his concerns about a coming attack on talk radio.

    But his real worry is that many Washington elitists really don’t like our form of government and want to see it abolished.

    "I fear a Reichstag moment," he said, referring to the 1933 burning of Germany's parliament building in Berlin that the Nazis blamed on communists and Hitler used as an excuse to suspend constitutional liberties and consolidate power.

    "God forbid, another 9/11. Something that will turn this machine on, and power will be seized and voices will be silenced."

    Beck has also been a fierce critic of President Obama. Still, he said he's open to a meeting with Obama. Beck doesn't believe the president "necessarily would" speak directly to him, adding: "I don't know very many politicians that speak directly."

    Beck also talked to Newsmax about his critics, his best-selling book "Common Sense," his condemnation of George W. Bush's presidency, government control of the media and "the only thing that will save this country."

    Beck himself has gushed enthusiastically about the "Glenn Beck Wants You!" report, telling radio listeners: "Gosh, thank you, Newsmax. What an in-depth article, and a fair article. Thank you."

    Does Beck not realize 9/11 was that moment?
    Lots of power seized, new departments created, individual rights removed.

    It is interesting that noise like Beck rejected false flag theory when the Boy King was in office, but now that the black man is in power, suddenly there's something to it all.

    :rolleyes:

    Am always amazed at the situational outrage of the right.. they were complicit and silence for 8 years, and licked the boots of George and his minions.. now they are rabid dogs at anything perceived, most of what is imagined.

    Mav, what we need to realize is that ANYTHING that would prevent, restrict or limit political expression through ANY media venue would be much, much worse than all the rights we lost post 9/11 put together.

    As psycho as Beck is, if people like him were ever restricted in any way, shap or form, America would no longer exist as a free society.

    If any proposal to restrict any political expression were passed, war would follow shortly after. And strangely, people like you & I would be on Beck's side.

    Laws like the "Fairness doctrine" are unconstitutional, Un-American and blatant abuse of power....they can never be enforced.....nor should they ever be.

    ANY American citizen who supports our constitution would have to agree with these points. We should care less who "controls" the voice of radio. If one side's shows don't get support and the other doesn't.....OH WELL. If people don't like it, turn it off and go cry on a pillow.

    Not to mention that if Hillary were President, the complaining would be just as loud if not louder. This has nothing to do with race and everything to do with ideology and incompetence on Obama's part.

    Oh, you'll find some racists out there that can't stand the fact that the president is black but the wholesale labeling of everyone critical of his politics and policies is juvenile and lazy.

    The sad part of it is there are many decent people with legitimate gripes against this president but they dare not voice them for fear of "The Racist Sh!t"

    The "race card" is the ace in the hole for the far left wing, when cornered, out it comes.

    Beck was no fan of Bush. He spoke out against him, too. Also, it's a false characterization to say that "the right" was silent about Bush. Some were, some weren't. However, Obama is doing far more than Bush did...and is reinstituting Bush's policies...you know, the same ones that had libs all up in arms...

    Must have missed his outrage... perhaps he was a lot quieter then. The right media licked the boots of Bush, perhaps once and a while they made a minor comment, but overall Fox news, Rush, Hannity, Coulter, Malkin and the rest of the spokesmen for the right deified George.

    Guess Beck focused too much attention on the, "Christmas Sweater"....

    "Deified" is a bad word to use. I heard Beck, Rush, and Hannity all criticize Bush. Just because they backed the war doesn't mean that they didn't have issues with Bush.

    No sense talking and bickering over Beck anymore just sit back and watch him "take off" he'll keep NBC and their little gang of losers busy for quite some time now blubbering about his "Zoom To Stardom" Chris Matthews crys and drools himself to sleep every night now, he will probably have a real Drooling meltdown next month when Sarah Palin's book hits NO 1 the day it's released.....

    Beck/Palin becoming more popular than Elvis.

    What a great post. Not only do you play the race card(because no one could actually disagree with Obama's policies) but your whole statement is patently false! Beck was one of the harshest critics of Bush by 2007 and 2008, like many conservatives were. Near the end of his 2nd term when he refused to do anything about illegal immigrants, increased the size of government and spending, Beck ripped him daily. Try and get a few facts straight for once.

    And Daryl, I'd like for you to find in your list of conservatives who "deified" Bush just one who thought the Bush stimulus was a good idea. Or didn't rip him for expanding government and spending. You won't be able to. You see, unlike you some of us actually stand for principles we believe in instead of blindly following a political party or candidate. :rolleyes:

    Many of us Neo Cons turned on Bush when we realized he just sat by doing nothing while America was being invaded by 12 million Illegal Alien Criminals, near the end of his second term Bush and McCain were slowly turning into Luke Warm Democrats.

    BUSH ALLOWED THE INVASION OF AMERICA TO TAKE PLACE WITHOUT LIFTING A FINGER.

    The Republicans blew it with that old pandering fool McCain they should have ran Mitt Romney he probably never would have beaten the Poster Boy Obama but he would have been a candidate we on the Right could have admired
    (McCain is a closet democrat)

    These same Reichstag claims were rampant when the Crawford alcoholic was in office, and people like Beck and his supporters right here on this forum were dismissing it as nonsense talk. Liar.

    So why was it all innocuous then, but suddenly a "revolution must spark" now?
