Secession Is The Sincerest Form Of Patriotism

Glenn Beck loves America so much that he doesn’t want America interfering with it!

Van Susteren brought up Governor Rick Perry’s statement earlier in the day, after speaking at that same protest, in which he suggested to reporters that Texas might have to secede. “Governor Perry has some pretty harsh words for the federal government right now,” she said. Another wild cheer broke out at those words.

Beck responded by saying he had talked to the governor and while he didn’t know how popular Perry is (another big cheer), “His words rang true to an awful lot of people, not just in Texas, but I think a lot of people all around the country.” Speaking figuratively to the federal government, Beck said, “You need to back off!” That brought on another burst of loud approval.

“I don’t want to be too dramatic,” Van Susteren said, “but it almost seems like Texas is looking to secede from the rest of the nation.” Now there were cheers, applause and banner-waving.”

Beck didn’t disagree. He asked the cameras to get a shot of a large banner of the Texas flag with the words, “Texas Independence” on it. That prompted what were probably the loudest, longest cheers yet.

Bragging about how well he understands Texas (because he lived there for four years), Beck said, “These people love America (more cheers). They just think Texas does America best.”

The crowd erupted into a “USA!” chant.

Because nothing shows your love for America like seceding from it.  I especially love the “USA!” chant in response – apparently they’ve forgotten what the “U” stands for.  But that’s all okay, because Texas is the real America, and everything else is just eggheads and drug addicts and hippies.

Personally, I’d be thrilled if Texas seceded so it could live the dream of becoming a wingnut utopia (and see how well that works out)… but only if I could get my friends out first.

    H.G. Wells said it best…”Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.”

    By the way, I’ll stay and fight ’em…
