Yeah, this guy again. He and Beck have a thing for Thomas Paine because of the revolutionary resonance of “Common Sense,” to the point where GB claims to be rewriting that pamphlet for a modern audience. Fair enough, but a guy who takes as much inspiration from Moses and Jesus as Beck does might want to be careful about stirring up a vogue for Paine. Conservative populists won’t like everything they find there.

Note the comparison towards the end between Pearl Harbor, 9/11, and … the spending bill, all perpetrated by a sinister “they.”
