Glenn Beck tells Tea Party to keep the fight alive

Posted By on Sat, Jul 24, 2010 at 8:43 PM

Glenn Beck declared himself a “revolutionary” on his eponymous Fox News program Saturday while urging Tea Party members not to fall prey to frustration and give up on the developing but unorganized “social movement” for political change.

He called for persistence in conveying opinions to Washington and warned against getting mired in frustration and infighting, calling on Darth Vader to illustrate how negative forces can exploit anger and hatred to quash a movement. He also railed against giving up.

“If you’re done, the Republic is done,” he said.“They’ll have to kill me before I’ll stop. I’ll never stop speaking out.” It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what you’re doing, Beck said: “I’m not a journalist. Ten years ago I was a Top 40 DJ. I don’t know what I’m doing.”
