Glenn Beck Explains Why Egypt’s Revolution ‘Failed’… During Food Insurance Promo

Glenn Beck may have been a bit premature in labeling Egypt’s revolution a “failure.” Wednesday morning on his radio show, before the Egyptian military successfully ousted President Muhammed Morsi, Beck somehow managed to turn an on-air advertisement for emergency food supply company Food Insurance into a treatise on how the Egyptian revolution will never have the same success as the American one.

While espousing the virtue of “preparation” in relation to Food Insurance, Beck declared, seemingly out of nowhere, “that’s why Egypt failed and America won. That’s why revolutions usually fail.”

As Beck explained, “you have a bunch of people who are willing to smoke dope, live out in a park and have sex in a tent with everybody they meet.” He contrasted those types of revolutionaries with the Founding Fathers, who were willing to “sit in a room for years and study and try to figure out: ‘What does freedom mean and how do we make people free?’”

“So very few people do preparation, and that’s why there’s failure. You can cut corners, but you can only get away with it for so long.” With that, he finished reading his ad copy.
