Those who watched Glenn Beck's radio program on TheBlaze TV this morning may have caught Beck wearing a Native American-style headdress early in the broadcast.
"This is actually from the first ... resurrection of the Tea Party," Beck explained. "When the founders went, they dressed to disguise themselves as Native Americans and they dumped the tea away. Around the last century, everybody said, 'Our country is a little out of control and we should get back to our founding roots.' This is a headdress from that Tea Party movement that happened in the late 1800s."
Beck joked: "For for anybody who says, oh, geez, they're dressed as Founding Fathers. It could be worse. We could have all gathered and dressed like this."
Growing more serious, Beck added: "But it also shows you, this was a very elaborate and national movement. This was a big movement and it's completely gone. Have you heard of that movement? Did you even know it was going on?"
Beck explained that he was speaking with his audience about historical artifacts because he will be opening up his Texas studios for Mercury One's "Miracles and Massacres" museum this weekend.
"The Mercury studios have not been opened to the public yet. We're not finished with them yet," he said. "You can come in this week only and see."
Among the attractions, Beck said, is a four-dimensional World War II exhibit that will make visitors feel like they are landing on the beaches of Normandy.
"You can see it in our studios at Mercury One," Beck concluded. "Go to MercuryOne.org and grab your tickets. This week only here in Dallas, Texas."
