Knotsgekke FOX doemdenker Glenn Beck laat weer eens van zich horen, hij vergelijkt de democratisch geleide inspanning rondom gezondheidszorghervormingen met de voorbereidingen van de terroristische aanslagen van 9/11. Beck’s uitspraken volgen de uitlatingen van Rep. Virginia Foxx in de Amerikaanse Senaat. Volgens haar zijn de gevaren van de nieuwe zorgwet groter dan mogelijke nieuwe terroristische aanslagen.
Ten years ago, I could have shouted every single day about Osama bin Laden and his wacky crazy threats to kill Americans in New York and nobody would have been willing to stand in line two hours while some security officer made grandma take her shoes off. No one would have done it. But don’t you see. While the government is still not willing to do these things, today America is different. America has changed. Washington, we’re not going to let you get away with it anymore. Look, fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Conservatives are awake. 9/12ers are willing to do the hard things. We know what this means! We’re taking time out of our busy lives, taking time away from their families, they’re attending town hall meetings. Do you think they want to do that? They are calling their representatives. How many times do we have to be yelled at by your people in Washington? They are reading 2,000-page healthcare bills on the weekend. The 9/12ers are willing to stand in line and take our shoes off before the plane actually hits the tower.
