Today, Glenn Beck’s new book Cowards: What Politicians, Radicals, and the Media Refuse to Say landed at bookstores across the country. With the most important election of this generation coming up in just a few short months, this book exposes the people in power who refuse to even discuss the real issues facing the country, much less work towards honest solutions.
“We live in a country where the establishment is infested with cowards; people who are not only unwilling to find solutions, but who are often too spineless to even acknowledge that a problem exists. They are far more enamored with power, or ratings, or their personal agendas than with the truth. I’m talking about politicians, yes, but also academics, the mass media, movement leaders, business leaders—and anyone else who keeps perpetuating the lie that everything will be fine if we just listen to them,” Glenn writes in the introduction to the book.
“They are wrong. Everything is not fine—it hasn’t been for a very long time.”
Glenn spares no targets in Cowards. Republicans, Democrats, the media, public education, Occupy Wall Street, George Soros, and Van Jones are just some of the cowards that are exposed in the new book. Most importantly, however, it’s a wake up call for everyone – young or old, conservative or liberal, New Yorker or Texan – who thinks that the problems facing the country are small and the solutions are simple.
The people who are responsible for telling the American people the truth have been running from it themselves and things are much, much tougher than the average American has been lead to believe.
“We complain election after election about not having a candidate who truly represents our values, and yet nothing ever changes. We keep playing the game, electing the same progressives and then feigning outrage when they back off from their bold campaign promises and instead turn into the same mealy-mouthed weasels they replaced. They hide the fact that there is another option, another way of looking at the world—one much more closely aligned with the Constitution - because it threatens their monopoly on power,” Glenn wrote.
He continued, “We’ve spent decades playing by the rules, only to find out that the game itself has been rigged all along. After all, you cannot have a legitimate debate when the moderators—the political and media elite—have a vested interest in the outcome.”
“The cowards have had their way for far too long. By concealing themselves in the darkness, they’ve advanced an agenda that has brought America to the brink. Only the bright sunlight of truth can expose them for who they really are.”
Many Glenn fans are well aware of the problems facing the country – and no doubt some are already planning to pick up a copy of the book to further educate themselves on the issues. But this information is too important to keep to one’s self, so be sure to pass on your highlighted, dog-eared copy on to a friend or family member.
