Beck’s Awesome Obamacare Conspiracy

The Obama administration announced the other day that it’s going to delay the implementation of the employer mandate in the health care reform bill and Glenn Beck has a sparkling new conspiracy theory about it. They’re delaying it because it will cause chaos, just like the gay communist Muslims want. Or something.

    Old talking point: Implementing Obamacare is causing chaos!

    New talking point: Delaying the implementation of Obamacare is causing chaos!

    I’m sensing a theme here.

  2. Modusoperandi:

    To be fair, it is pretty much what the gay communist Muslims want.

  3. Who Knows?:

    Didn’t Beck have something a few weeks ago that was going to throw the whole country into chaos?

  4. John Pieret:

    “Everybody who is on the dark side is rooting for chaos. Who is the author of chaos? Let me go to Austin,” Beck said. “If you don’t know what side you are on right now, if you don’t know who you are actually fighting—I told you before, we are not fighting with the president of the United States, we are not fighting with the Democrats, we are fighting evil.”

    Wait a minute, did he just admit that President Obama and the Democrats aren’t evil? Oh, probably not. He just being more incoherent than usual.

    Let me go to Austin

    What’s up with Austin? Has it become the chaos capitol of the universe? Why wasn’t I informed?

    Wait a minute, did he just admit that President Obama and the Democrats aren’t evil? Oh, probably not. He just being more incoherent than usual.

    I think he said he’s not fighting the POTUS and the Dems because they’re the POTUS and Dems, he’s fighting them because they are EVIL.

    It’s funny but it’s also scary.

    And he’s fighting them by blathering and crying on television, which is exactly how Sauron was thwarted, iirc.

  8. unemployedphilosopher:

    @whirligig: We just need to rustle up some sacrificial Hobbits patriots to return to Obama’s homeland, which has… volcanoes… and toss his fake birth certificate into the fire from which it was forged.

    @Larry (#5).
    It may have to do with the abortion bill Rick Perry and the Repubs are trying to force through. It was defeated in the first special session with a marathon filibuster by Wendy Davis. So Perry called a second special session.

    It’s more than that, as Beck’s reference to the “author of chaos” reveals. The real enemy is Satan Himself, and Obama and the Dems are just his minions.

  11. Modusoperandi:

    Aw. I wanted to be a minion.

  12. John Pieret:

    Modus, you are already a minion of Ed’s and, I’m sure, Beck would declare Ed a minion of Satan. Therefore, you are, to coin a phrase, a minion’s minion. Congratulations.

  13. didgen:

    I’ve always thought of you as one in a minion Modus.

  14. billdaniels:

    I want to be a filet minion.

  15. Modusoperandi:

    didgen “I’ve always thought of you as one in a minion Modus.”
    I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but you’ve got pun. There’s nothing we can do. It’s terminal.

    Modusoperandi,

    “it is pretty much what the gay communist *atheist* Muslims want.”
    Fixed it for you.

  17. Modusoperandi:

    birgerjohansson, I was quoting Ed. I assume he “forgot” atheist because Big Atheism got to him.
