Wingnuts in Despair: Glenn Beck, Robert Stacy McCain

All is bleak. Hope is gone. Buy guns. We’re doomed.
Wingnuts • Views: 23,820

Glenn Beck is despondent over the reelection of Barack Obama, and he’s talking apocalypse. I know, he always talks apocalypse, but this time he’s headin’ out to the farm with a good supply of ammo.

Today, Glenn Beck sought to make sense of the results of last night’s election, beginning with a lengthy, tear-filled monologue about George Washington before getting down to business by rolling out hints about his plans to create an entire Blaze “ecosystem” that will be able to operate independently of the government and existing media structure because everything is about to go downhill … so people need to start buying up farmland, pull their kids out of the public schools, and load up on guns.

My other favorite wingnut reaction today is from creepy right wing neo-Confederate Robert Stacy McCain, who is thinking dark thoughts, utterly convinced that America is doomed beyond all hope of redemption.

Perhaps others will still see some cause for hope, and in another few weeks my friends may persuade me to see it, too. But today I will hear no such talk, and I doubt I’ll be in a better mood tomorrow. At the moment, I am convinced America is doomed beyond all hope of redemption, and any talk of the future fills me with dread and horror.

For further context on the possible reasons why the reelection of America’s first black President is having such a mind-shattering effect on Mr. McCain, see: The Other ‘Other McCain’.
