Glenn Beck: 'I've lost faith,' time to 'surrender'

Says dying America is 'gurgling, we've got our hand on the wound'


Glenn Beck acts out a scene of rescuing a dying America during his broadcast Tuesday, March 5, 2013.

Claiming that “America is hemorrhaging” and headed rapidly toward death, media giant Glenn Beck says he’s lost faith in many of the institutions that have made the U.S. such a great country, and it’s time to “surrender.”

“When the government says they can use drones and just kill us without a warrant or a trial, my gosh, America certainly is dead,” Beck said during his broadcast Tuesday night.

“I’ve lost faith in my government, I’ve lost faith in the media, in banking, the justice system, some of our big-city police departments … I think I just didn’t have faith in the DMV 15 years ago. Now I question everything. I don’t have faith in any of it.”

Can’t get enough Glenn Beck? WND has a complete section dedicated to his products in the WND Superstore.

But Beck said he realized he wasn’t “supposed to have faith in any of those things,” and proffered the tactic of surrender.

“I remember that surrender is an important way of winning. Surrender. You’re powerless over it. And you are. We’re powerless over anything that happens in Washington. And so what do you do? You try to make amends for the things that you’ve done wrong. You try to live differently. Take an inventory, and then you take control of the things you can and you work hardest on those.”

He continued: “Just as I don’t have faith in anything [I mentioned], my faith grows in my family, and in God. I raise my kids and make sure I’m listening as closely as

Snip from end of article:

As part of his clarion call, Beck urged parents to remove their children from government-run schools.

“I’m telling you to get your kids out of these schools. They’re indoctrination camps. They’re turning our kids against us. They’re turning our kids against all of the values that we ever held, they’re wounding them even further. There’s nothing more important than our kids. The concept that the individual is greater than the collective, and they are learning the exact opposite in school. Sadly, we have forgotten this.”

it’s time to “surrender.”

Apparently there were many who thought the same last November. I wasn't about to surrender then and I'm not about to surrender now.

Beck loses faith in Christianity and becomes a follower of Mormonism instead, figures if you lose faith in God, then join a faith where YOU become God yourself.

Let’s see how quickly the Left accuses Beck of being unpatriotic/s;)

How much do you trust Walmart to control our education system?

Well, I’ve always been more satisfied with Walmart than the government. Do you think Walmart would do a worse job than the government? I don’t.

“It's time to surrender”

No it is time to fight!!!Never give up, never quit. Read what George Washington had to say about our first conflict/fight for our very freedom.

“If all else fails, I will retreat up the valley of Virginia, plant my flag on the Blue Ridge, rally around the Scotch-Irish of that region, and make my last stand for liberty amongst a people who will never submit to tyranny whilst there is a man left to draw a trigger.”” George Washington, at Valley Forge.

What the Hell, are we going to cut and run??

Never!!

Yup.

General Patton would have broken the jawbones of Beckeeeeeee-the-Weeeeeeeny for saying: “ - - - “I remember that surrender is an important way of winning. - - - “

Yup, this is the time when the boys are separated from the MEN!

I think Beck has lost audience share. I remember when this guy was riding high on TV.
I haven’t seen him in what, two years?

The surrender started among too many Americans a long time ago - so much so that it looks dismal.

I’m only interested in Beck’s surrender if it means the tearful drama queen will finally shut up.

” I wasn’t about to surrender then and I’m not about to surrender now.”

You should have read a number of Freepers who turned into liberals overnight after the election ready to get down on Odumbo. Bunch of pu**ies. People need to be reminded that less voters turned out for Klownie the Kenyan and we gained more on our side which was not enough. The country is still red AND blue.

I'm really glad you're here, friend. You're echoing the battle cry that I (and a few others) been hollering on this site for years now.

Thank you for adding your shoulder to the wheel.

He lost me last week when he and his crew on the radio made fun of the Pope.

That’s jsut not done. SNL did it with Fr Guido, and where are they?
