Beck on Romney’s loss: ‘Man, sometimes God really sucks’



Conservative radio host Glenn Beck on Wednesday declared that Mitt Romney’s loss to President Barack Obama proved that “sometimes God really sucks.”

>snip

“Twelve years ago, I could say with real assurance that I knew who Americans were,” he explained. “And I can’t say that any more.”

During his radio show the next morning, Beck told listeners that he had realized Romney was going to lose while praying before the polls opened on Tuesday.

“Man, sometimes God really sucks,” the radio host lamented. “I got up yesterday at 3:00 in the morning and I knew. And I couldn’t sleep and I started to say my prayers and I got up and kneeled down by the edge of my bed and I knew that — or I suspected that my mind’s not God’s mind, and the peace and the comfort that he had given me and so many of my friends was not about an election.”

He added: “Just like those Christians that rolled up the Dead Sea Scrolls and put them in pots. I don’t know what happened to those Christians but they hid them. They hid them and they preserved them because it was important. The Bible was never wiped out, but the people who originally wrote the Bible were scattered.”

4. I love conservative history

Perhaps he should look up the history of the Dead Sea scrolls to see that it wasn't really "Christians" that hid them! And that not all of them are Biblical in the Christian sense of the word.

Oh I know.....facts are to be ignored in Freeper world!

9. Are you kidding, me ...

“I got up yesterday at 3:00 in the morning and I knew. And I couldn’t sleep and I started to say my prayers and I got up and kneeled down by the edge of my bed and I knew that — or I suspected that my mind’s not God’s mind, and the peace and the comfort that he had given me and so many of my friends was not about an election.”


I have a couple of advance degrees and thought, to this very moment, that I had a pretty good grasp on read comprension ... then I read this and must ask: "What the hell does the above even mean?"

I suspected that my mind’s not God’s mind, and the peace and the comfort that he had given me and so many of my friends was not about an election.”


Wouldn't the bolded part be an admission on beck's part that his mind is/was not intuned with his god's mind?

11. At least we now know why he converted to Mormonism.

The egomaniac leapt at the idea of becoming a God with his own planet and his very own harem of grateful Mormon beauties!

13. In the minds of people like Beck,

to be a *real* American, you have to be rich, white and male.

Never fear, someday he'll have the opportunity to say that to the Lord's face.
