By encouraging students and professors to avoid phrases like “America is a melting pot” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job,” Glenn Beck believes the University of California, Berkeley has started a trend that could end with book banning and a "bullet in the head" for those who disagree.
"I know we've joked for a long time about, you know, 'Glenn ... takes anything, and it always ends with a bullet in the head,'" Beck said on his radio program. "But this ends with a bullet in the head."
Beck said the trend began with words, making certain words a grave offense against the theories of political correctness, and now "they're doing phrases because phrases are ideas."
"We're not talking about words anymore. We're talking about ideas," Beck asserted. "'The most qualified gets the job' is not a string of words. It's an idea. So you have to squash the idea. If you can't squash the idea, you must put a bullet in somebody's head."
Beck referenced an FBI informant who went undercover with the Weather Underground, who said the organization was clear that the nation needed to be re-educated and those who wouldn't conform would have to be "eliminated."
"When you're saying that you cannot say, 'I think the best, most qualified person should get the job' -- when that's unspeakable, you have indeed lost everything that makes us America," Beck remarked.
Beck strongly warned parents to be aware of what type of college they are sending their children to, saying some are "re-education camps" that are "telling your children not to think, that ideas are dangerous."
"It's not unlikely that the next step is to ban books," Beck continued. "If you're saying that America is a melting pot, you've got to ban the books that originated that. ... It's not far down the road before books are banned by universities."
Beck said people could yell: "Shout them down! Beat them in the streets! Call them racists. Call them haters. Do whatever you have to do, but get them to shut up. If you can't scare them into silence, you beat them into silence."
"If you can't beat them into silence, you just kill a few of them and everybody else shuts up," Beck concluded. "That's the way it has worked every time in human history. What, we're unique somehow or another? It doesn't end this way somehow or another? Tell me what makes us different than the Nazis when they banned thoughts. Tell me the difference."
Beck said America's youth are being taught "think exactly what we tell you," and nothing else.
"You don't have revolutionaries. You have lemmings," he said. "You have useful idiots."
