Conservative pundit Glenn Beck took his bizarre theatrics to another level during his show on Thursday, dressing as an old man and offering a dire warning from the future about the 2014 “dawn of progressivism.”
Right Wing Watch posted a clip from the episode in which Beck appeared in a dimly lit room, wearing a robe and a large, gray beard. He portrayed himself speaking from the year 2054, and looking back 40 years in the past to the year he said everything began to fall apart.
“Your history books claim that was the year of the dawn of progressivism, the dawn of a new beginning, the end of capitalism!” Beck said in the video, a finger raised. “I’ll tell you now it was that. That this new era of equality, and diversity, and tolerance — I beg to differ with your history book!”
As part of his theatrics, Beck played clips about this year’s disappearance of the Malaysian airliner as well as the standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government over unpaid grazing fees.
“I’m not crazy,” Beck said near the end of the clip. “I was naive, but I was not crazy.”
