The Blaze of Insight

According to Glenn Beck

the world
is in a state of chaos

because Americans
are worshiping the pre-Abrahamic deities
Baal and Moloch.

"It was worship the god of finance
the god of war
and the god of the earth.

I mean, we’re there"

he said.

While understanding
that this was probably not
his intended meaning

those first two "gods"

of wealth inequality
and unjust war

are two which Bernie Sanders wants addressed

(or "slain"
if one is being pre-Abrahamic).

And as is common
for someone in his
perpetually mentally turned-on state

Beck mispronounced
the names of the deities

whose real appellations

are Malice and Bullshit.
