Glenn Beck describes his wacky planned community,

I think Guyana might have some cheap land available.

So far my favorite thing is the lake, which Beck says is larger than Disneyland.

There is no way to even try to summarize the delusional insanity of Beck's twenty minute description of his vision, so we are just posting the entire video:

3. There have been several of these "communities" planned. The closest things in existence are pretty


much just glorified HOA's. I think they're called "covenant communities" or some shit.

5. Beck may be delusional but he is a capitalist first and foremost.

If there is a way to make a buck and enrich his treasure, Beck is there. It his delusional followers who have the problems, since I imagine they must believe that he is sincere. Since leaving Faux News Network, Beck has launched a number of ventures, all of which continuing enrich his treasures is at the forefront. I'm guessing that the last couple of ventures, (Beck University, and the Blaze) haven't proven to be as profitable as expected, hence his new project Independence Park. Don't worry, he will move on to another project six months from now. After all, his low-income, low information base cannot afford his Never-NeverLand at Independence Park.

10. Rare manuscripts stored in a "sunlight collector". Yeah, thats an AWESOME IDEA.


Because nothing is better for preserving these materials than the sun's UV rays.

This shit just gets better and better as I keep watching, lol.

11. Understand: the last time Beck, Limbaugh, etc. were able to get an erection, was the mid/late 80s.

Their psyches are sort of stuck there. (Explains the odd Reagan fetish) these guys, the "intellectual workhorses" (cough) of the GOP base.. They've considered every Democratic Presidential win since 1988 to be something of a fluke, or aberration...

But now there have been four, compared to their measly two- by a guy who basically had to cheat to even get a razor thin margin of questionable "victory"..

So the truth is starting to sink in. We knew they were going to come unhinged with the 2nd Obama term.

12. He's about one century too late; Joseph Smith

already invented this ideal community. Maybe if an angel appears to Beck with golden tablets or something...

17. Glenn Beck is now claiming to be a libertarian guru

 

There were quite a few libertarian types at Occupy, so i don't think Beck knows what he's talking about.
