Talk show host Glenn Beck says voters who don’t back Sen. Ted Cruz could face holy retribution.
“God came to me in a dream and told me he would seek revenge on Americans who don’t support his chosen one, Ted Cruz,” said Beck on his radio show. “According to my dream, God will visit America with plague, war, and pestilence if people don’t vote for Cruz.”
Afterwards, Beck tried to sell emergency supplies to people who wanted to survive the coming Apocalypse.
Beck has frequently told his listeners that Cruz has been raised from birth to lead the nation.
In the past, he has compared Cruz to Moses.
“I have seen this man’s life,” said Beck on his radio show. “I have watched this man. I have prayed about this man. I have prayed about it by myself, out loud, in quiet, with my family, with my staff, and I happen to believe that Ted Cruz actually was anointed for this time. Would there not be someone that was in the pool that might have the right qualifications for God?”
However, many Evangelicals also considered George W. Bush to be anointed by God, but the nation’s worst ever terrorist attack happened on his watch. Bush later invaded Iraq, a country which was not involved in 9-11, an act that has been called America’s worst foreign policy blunder.
Beck’s adoration of Cruz has drawn mockery, even from right wing sources. Beck has been feuding with influential conservative blogger Matt Drudge. And Alex Jones, a longtime rival of critic of Beck’s, recently called him a “psychotic cult leader.”
