I am sure everyone has heard the name Glenn Beck. Some love him, some hate him, some like him, some say eh. I have been a fan of Glenn Beck since he had a show on the Fox channel at 5pm, do I agree with everything he says, no, but I think most things I do. Many on the Left call him a nut job, wacko, the evil prince of America, shit for brains and a lot of other things, but that’s what I think of the people on the Left, so I guess it all evens out.
Mr. Beck has a tremendous comeback story, losing everything, and I mean everything to drugs and alcohol, he now is a bestselling author and is a big shot mogul of an entertainment empire. I love comeback stories, having come through one myself, not anything compared to Mr. Beck’s, but anyone who picks themselves up from failure I love to read about.
One of Mr. Beck’s many projects is The Restoring America Project; it is something that is needed in this country without a doubt. Our schools don’t teach history like they did when I was a kid, oh sure they teach it, but when I went to school they taught how great America was, now, that’s if they teach it at all, they show America as a bad country, even calling the Pilgrims who settled at Plymouth Rock, the first American terrorists.
Mr. Beck remembers the 1950’s, as I do, when Walt Disney would put out movies and TV shows such as Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, The Alamo and many other heroes from our past. Our kids today don’t see shows like this anymore, if they do, they are portrayed as villains, that’s if they even know who any of them are. All the heroes I knew growing up, seem to have vanished from the face of the earth and have been replaced with the new heroes for our children to admire, the sports figure who beats up women, does drugs, or the Hip-Hop artists who glorify using and dealing drugs, killing cops, raping women.
You might disagree with everything Mr. Beck says, but how can you disagree with him on this subject? Our children have to learn the greatness of America, if they don’t, why should they care about a country if it is an evil place, why would they defend it or fight for it like so many have done in the past?
Mr. Beck did not solicit or pay me to write this article, I just believe it is a very important issue. There is an old saying that “Our children are our future,” from where I sit, our future is not looking all that bright. When we have a generation of people who can’t tell you who fought in the Civil War, or who won, and don’t know which country we won our independence from, that is not a good sign. I used to think it was funny when they would show the “man in the street” scenes, asking kids questions like these, now not so much.
As far as Mr. Beck being the savior of America, well I just wrote that to get your attention. But if he accomplishes what he is setting out to do, who knows. (Except he needs to stop crying so much.)
I know I’ll get hate mail from the Beck bashers for this article, but they can go have intercourse with themselves.
