I’ve mentioned before that Glenn Beck just creeps me out – it’s not just that his politics and mine are so different (they are) – I have watched O’Reilly and Michelle Malkin and others and don’t get the same stomach-churning sense of dread that I get from Beck.
Now, watching the video of his speeches at the Lincoln Memorial, I realize I was totally right in stating who he reminds me of – Nehemiah Scudder.
Remember him? From the Robert Heinlein novel …if this goes on? – where the United States is ruled by a theocratic dictatorship.
The story is set in a future theocratic American society, ruled by the latest in a series of “Prophets.” The First Prophet was Nehemiah Scudder, a backwoods preacher turned President (elected in 2012), then dictator (no elections were held in 2016 or later)
