America Is Down on the Ground Gurgling and Some of Us Have Our Hand on the Wound and Stay With Me!

Abby Zimet

Just so you know: Glenn Beck is still here, and getting more hysterical all the time, and last night he was ranting about gun control and collectivism and "indoctrination camps" - aka public schools - and background checks killing us and then he fell to his knees with an American flag giving imaginary CPR to a hemorrhaging Lady Liberty and shrieking Stay With Me! Or something. The thing is: The Southern Poverty Law Center just released a new report finding "explosive growth" and record numbers of both "conspiracy-minded anti-government ‘Patriot’ groups" - now at an all-time high of 1,360, up 813% since 2009 - and hate groups, now over 1,000; they suggest the feds should pay attention. Until they do, alot of these guys are likely home watching Glenn Beck.
