WISCONSIN, AS ONLY GLENN BECK CAN SEE IT…. There’s obviously an intense, ongoing dispute in Wisconsin, with Republican Gov. Scott Walker (R) trying to gut state public-employee unions. But you may not appreciate the connection to this week’s events to the larger campaign to destroy civilization.

Don’t worry, Glenn Beck can provide the context for you. (Ryan J. Reilly posted the video.)

Here’s the deranged media personality on Fox News yesterday, connecting the labor issues in Madison to a global conspiracy that only he can see.

“[T]he world is on fire, and there are three groups of people — three groups of people. They want a new world order.

“One — this is your choice — one: one world government. This is Open Society, this is United Nations — whatever you want to call it — one world government. They have lots of money and lots of power, and they have NGOs, non-governmental organizations. They’re getting that done. They’re organized.

“This one: this is the caliphate if you’re in Iran or Turkey. This one is the United Islamic Nations. This is the one the Muslim Brotherhood is going for now, but it all looked like this — it’s a new world order. And they have — they are organized, too. They have the religion and the mosques and apparently, help from Google as well, at least in Europe or — I mean, I’m sorry, in Egypt.

“And then you have this one, workers union, or they call it state capitalism. Really what it is it’s just good old-fashioned communism. They have unions and community organizing.”

Apparently those who want to maintain their collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin fall into this third category.

“Unions are marching and protesting budget cuts close to $3 billion to close that hole. The unions claim that the cuts will affect teachers. But it’s not the everyday teacher that this story is really all about. It’s about the people looking to create chaos on the backs of the worker when the world’s focus is on Egypt.”

I do wonder what the weather is like in Beck’s reality.
