Video of the Day: Glenn Beck connects Colorado flooding, Navy Yard shootings

Video below.
What's the connection between the devastating flooding in Colorado and the dreadful shootings at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., in which Aaron Alexis killed a dozen people before being gunned down? Beyond death and tragedy, most of us would say "nothing." After all, one incident was a natural disaster, while the other was the act of an apparent madman. But this week, commentator Glenn Beck used them as an example of how "we have come unhinged" via language Right Wing Watch describes as offering "evidence that we are living in the End Times." See the clip below.

I have better things to do than to listen to this fool

End times? I used to believe in the Easter Bunny too.

Duct tape was developed for Mr Beck specifically!

Ok. Well he is a nutcase. So I can see why you would want to.

Stick to Colorado entertainment and not garbage from "rightwingwatch.com" Yeesh.

wait, are you Denver Westword saying you agree with GB about 'end times?'

What, exactly, is ''incredible but true'' about this video?

k. while you stop paying attention to him, i'll work on finding the executioner.

Wouldn't go that far. I just would stop giving him the attention he clearly is whoring for.

All I could think when I saw that the guy from Dairy Queen was being offered a franchise by this guy was - run kid run. To be associated with this loon is not a win for you. Proof here.

Barf. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

It's sad that so many people listen to this conspiratorial nutcase.

The flooding was my fault. I moved here and within weeks I brought the weather from Maine down South. Glenn Beck needs to do his research and at least give me credit where it's due.

Someone call the hospital, a loony has escaped!

Beck is like the guys you work the 2:00 AM shift on talk radio. Totally unhinged and off the wall.

The real question here is why Westword would pay any attention at all about anything he says.

I think that everyone, whose lives are directed by religion, is a bit wacky.  That does not apply to only Glen Beck.

I'll give you Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh for Bill Mahr and Michael Moore! We'd be about even I think!

mental illness could be the thin thread; Colorado once had a state hospital for folks like mr. beck.

I give a fuck what GB says...said no one.

funny how a nation of "Christians" completely casts away (all other commenters) the possibility of God taking action as the Bible repeatedly shows Him doing.

Graham Haworth

If that is the case, how is saying prayers for people affected by both tragedies connecting the two?

he is talking about the idiotic comparisons of the flood as biblical type of flood and the downward progression of of  our society.  What part of that do you not get? Maybe if you lefties were not such atheists you might understand the correlation he is getting at. It was the idiot liberal media that compared the floods to the bible in the first place.

I suppose he could have been talking about some other senseless act of violence at the beginning of the video, but the Navy Yard shooting is the most obvious that he might be referencing.

Christopher Johnston

His audience is nearly nothing. He is around to stir up sh*t. A muckracker and an IDIOT, barely even educated. But, because the media has a vested interest in that as well, they report the ramblings of this blathering idiot. I am really disappointed in Denver Westword for reporting this, even IF he is talking about us. At LEAST they reported it in the manner it deserves, implying he is a bigot and a moron.

unfortunately a lot of people do. Which is even more terrifying

so painful to watch Glenn Beck I'm doing my best not to puke

Maybe it's an experiment to see if people will comment on something they didn't watch.

Is anyone really surprised by this? He is a NUT JOB!

It's also poorly edited, like a lot of that website's videos.

Uh, just watched the video link and there's nothing said about the Navy Yard shooter. You guys take yer meds today?

@Christopher Johnston      Chris - you do realize that a bigot defines one that is intolerannt of others?
