Glenn Beck Pulls Out a Rifle During Interview with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly

Glenn Beck made a triumphant return to Fox News Monday night, appearing live via satellite from his TheBlaze headquarters in Dallas, Texas to talk Obamacare, religion and, for some reason, Malcolm Gladwell with Bill O’Reilly. But mostly, Beck was there to promote his new book Miracles and Massacres, which looks at both the good and bad in American history.

Once they started talking about the book, viewers got to hear Beck’s opinion on how much he “hates” Thomas Edison for what he did to Nikola Tesla. And things got even stranger when Beck held up a rifle that he said was one of only seven taken from the Wounded Knee Massacre:

“This was buried, this was absolutely buried,” Beck told O’Reilly. “Our own military lied in court, then we tried to cover it up by giving everybody medals there.” He said, “It really needs to be exposed so you can say, ‘Look, these things were bad. Let’s learn from it so we can come back.'”

Before O’Reilly could end the segment, Beck brought out one more prop: a piece of Abraham Lincoln’s sheet. “You may have the book, I have the bed sheet,” he said. How did this man ever lose his show on Fox News?
