Glenn Beck: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona

by Smitty (h/t Nice Deb)

Full transcript is here. There is a related petition to the national leadership, but it appears to have been slashdotted. This is Beck reading a letter from a 53 year old grandmother in Arizona. The interaction of her words and Beck's dramatic style is formidable:


The video cuts off in the last paragraph, which is a bummer:
Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don't care. Political parties are meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them. Because we will get you fired and they will not save you. If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up. Make your identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are. If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one. We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming. We the people are coming.

Stay indignant, people. Keep reading the blogs. Buy and read the books you see linked on them. For me personally, an ambivalent Bush supporter most of this decade, Liberal Fascism was the watershed event. Studying some history is crucial: ignorance is weakness. If you don't do the homework, that's a sin of omission, and it will be counted against you.
Are you sending email to your Congresscritters? Inflate their inboxes, as they inflate our currency. Let "We the People" be the Patton, and the Congresscritters be our troops.


  1. That letter makes me want to fly my Gadsden flag. Reminds me of the feeling I had at the San Antonio tea party in April. This ain't over by a long shot. My kids are NOT going to be slaves. No way in HELL.

  2. Yes, yes, read, read; but after that embrace your first amendment press freedom! Write, blog, tweet, photograph, video tape, and link, link, link!

  3. There is no greater sin than the indifference of good men.
