Glenn Beck seems to be a little nonplussed that everyone is pointing and laughing at his typically GlennBeckian apocalyptic conspiracist take on the events in Egypt.
On his Fox News show yesterday he basically doubled down:
They were reacting with surprise afterwards, you know, like what? I've never heard that. Because she's 100 percent wrong.
First of all, that's not the network's theory. That's not Fox's theory. That's my theory. My theory. And it's not Van Jones or anything else.
Let me ask you this, let's start here. Since when is having a theory when you're trying to figure out what's going on a bad thing in America?
And it's really less theory than it is facts in their own words. But, just in case, let me show you what my "theory" is. And I stand by it. Everybody on the left, this is my theory and I stand by every word of it.
Groups from the hardcore socialists and communist left and extreme Islam will work together because of the common enemy of Israel and the Jews.
It's not just capitalism, it's not the United States, it's your way of life in the West. And I stand by that.
Groups from the hardcore socialist left and communism and extreme Islam will work together to overturn relatively -- relative stability because in the status quo, they are both ostracized from power and the mainstream in most parts of the world.
That's -- here, I'll even put it up for you -- Glenn's theory. Here it is. Got it?
That's it and I stand by it. Is it so farfetched, really?
This has been another edition of simple answers to simple questions.
