Glenn Beck: Health-care reform is just like the 9/11 attacks. And my followers are standing up before it hits.

His insanity increases with each and every day that passes. Now Glenn Beck is comparing healthcare reform to the 9-11 attacks.

Beck: On 9/11, we experienced a feeling we had never had before -- when the buildings and the markets and our economy came falling down around our ears, we realized -- 'Oh my gosh. Our country isn't unsinkable.'

We came, on that day, to the understanding that this Republic is fragile. Here we are now, a decade later. I'm on the air again, warning you that our America cannot sustain our governments massive spending. The system will collapse if we continue down this progressive path.

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 no one would have been willing to stand in line two hours while some security officers 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. 912ers 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 -- you think they wanna 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 health-care bills on the weekend. They 912ers are willing to stand in line and take our shoes off before the plane actually hits the tower.
He seems convinced that his gaggle of 9-12ers represent the new force in American politics. In actual fact they are a group of unhinged right wingers who are dragging the Republican party towards the abyss.

The simple fact is that Beck and his enraged right wingers are simply furious that the rest of the country chose to elect Obama. All of this whining is simply Beck's inability to accept the result of the electoral process.

But to compare healthcare reform to 9-11 really is going off the rails big time. But then, we already know how little respect Beck actually has for the people who lost loved ones on that dreadful day.
