Thank you to Rachel Maddow for explaining the nuclear situation in Japan. But I got ahold of Glenn Beck's response that will appear later this afternoon:
"Hello, my fellow patriots. If you are watching this right now, you - YOU - have been chosen. Chosen, why? WHY? Ask yourself this question instead: are you watching this show? Well, ARE YOU? I thought so.
Today I want to share with you the inner workings of a nuclear reactor. I know what you're thinking. Nuclear reactors. Piece of yellow cake. But I've been educating myself on the origins of nuclear reactors. And not just the origins, but the truth that the people in power don't want you to know. And why don't they want you to know? Because - BECAUSE PEOPLE! - they know that YOU could run a nuclear power plant better than them!
Let's jump in our time machine.
1933. What's going on in the world in 1933. Hmm, a World's Fair? No.... Oh, I REMEMBER. The Great Depression, anyone? Bad economy, people without jobs. Sounds familiar, don't it? And who comes to power? A-D-O-L-F H-I-T-T-L-E-R.
1945. Hitler is still up to no good. And America says it's time to kill Hitler once and for all. But Harry Truman gets a hunch that Hitler is hiding in J-A-P-A-N. The man loved sushi, and can you blame him? So Harry Truman gets in his plane and drops three bombs.
THIS is how a Nuclear Reactor works! It's not through a process on an atomic level called "Fizzin'" - that's what they may tell you but when have they ever been right? Did you know Obamacare provides X-Ray coverage for cancer patients? Why is he so interested in learning about how cancer is formed? What do we really know about X-Rays anyway???
As always, you need to educate yourself. Because I love this country. [sobbing] And I don't want to become Japan. When we come back... Earthquakes. George Soros. Totally different things. Or are they?"
