This weekend I had the opportunity to accidentally ‘bump into’ Fox News and hear Mr. Glenn Beck talking about the “Bubba Effect.”
For those of you who may not know, this is the tendency for some in our society to ‘take-to-the-hills and bury ammo and Bibles because THEY is a comin.’ Now the question you have to ask yourself is, who is they? United States Army (Ret) Command Sgt Major Tim Strong as well as an ex-CIA agent were guests of Mr. Beck. Mr. Strong spoke at length without being specific about the ‘Bubbas’ and indicated several known separatist groups as well some that most people are unaware of buried deep in our society. Again, they were not mentioned by name but having spent 20 + years as an AT specialist I am familiar with what he is talking about.
In my opinion, the show on it’s most transparent level attempted to address people’s fears about the unknown in these trying times. Along with the idea that big government has become to intrusive. However, due to the slick presentation and propaganda package that Fox News likes to use the actual message was closer to validating insurrection and homegrown terrorism.
I suggest that all of you take the time to scan news sources and listen with an unbiased and informed ear. Listen to what they are saying, pay attention to your next door neighbor or that guy down the street. I’m not saying that we need to spy on each other but what I am saying is that there are a lot of disgruntled (or better yet Gruntled) people out there and in their haste to do something/anything could in fact do our country great harm.
