The 5,000 Year Leap by Cleon Skousen: Is this the new Bible and idol of Glen Beck, as well as his 9/12 followers?

Meet the man who changed Glen Beck's life. Cleon Skousen, a right wing nut whom even conservatives despised until Glen Beck discovered him.

    I try to give people the benefit of the doubt in what they read. Reading The Communist Manifesto will not make you a communist; reading the Malleus Maleficarum will not cause you to burn innocent women and Harry Potter does not make you a witch.

    However, when he starts promoting the book, that's when all that goes out the window. No wonder he's a whacko!

    This explains a lot. I think I'll go to the local library to see if I can find any of Skousen's writings. Forewarned is forearmed.

    I'd say the country is pretty easily led astray, we did as a whole elect President Obama.

    Just, wow.

    He should pick up a copy of "A People's History of the United States" and get a clue.

    But, this is Glenn "the clueless". I won't hold my breath.

    He has a verified interest in this book since he wrote the introduction for the 2009 edition. He is as crazy as he seems and so are his 912 followers. I fear for our country if this movement gets any bigger.

    I have read the Koran that doesn't make me Muslim. I have read Watership Down, that doesn't make me a rabbit, I've read The Confessions of Augustine that doesn't make me Roman Catholic or Orthodox.

    Hmmm. Thinking about it maybe you are on to something, you are aware that Obama had a racist pastor for over 20 years. And spent a lot of time with and visited the home of a domestic terrorist and was an attorney for ACORN. HMMMMMM. Just maybe you are on to something.

    Glenn wrote the intro for the 2009 edition. He's been pimping it on his show.

    There's a little more to it than having read it.

    Again I think he may be onto something. After all President Obama sat under Jeremiah Wright for 20 years, is friends with a domestic terrorist and was an attorney for ACORN. Maybe guilt by association is valid.
