Terrorists are more than willing to use unconventional weapons in order to attack the Western way of life, and yet no one seems to think they could use the outbreak of Ebola to their advantage. The effects of a pandemic could be disastrous for the United States, but our leaders have been handling the situation with unheard of arrogance. Why are flights still going back and forth to infected areas? Why is the threat being downplayed? Is it arrogance? Glenn discussed the effect an Ebola outbreak could have and how Americans can spiritually prepare on radio this morning.
"I have to tell you, I can see saying to my family: We're staying home. We're just staying home. That's it. This stuff starts to spread, and we're all going to be doing that," Glenn said.
Glenn said Ebola was the second "ultimate weapon" only trailing an EMP.
"You drop an EMP over the skies of the United States of America, and we're done, and three-quarters of the nation dies within the first year. An EMP is the ultimate weapon with us."
"The second is a plague. This one affects the entire world. But you want to talk about an economy that goes south, you got nothing. You got nothing. Who's going grocery shopping? You want to have a reason to have gold? You want a reason to have guns? You want a reason to have God? You want a reason to have food storage? It's called Ebola."
Glenn has been saying for a while that he thinks something is coming to America, and that it disease will be a part of it. But what is it? Glenn described it as a humbling.
In a dinner with Gov. Bobby Jindal, Glenn told him "we're headed for a humbling, a massive humbling."
"We refuse to humble ourselves. Look at the secret service. Look at the way we're dealing with everything in the Middle East. Looking at the way we're still dealing in the financial sector. We haven't learned anything. We've become more arrogant."
"The arrogance is getting worse," he continued. "Think about how the things that are said and done in our society now, they don't make sense. We all know that doesn't make sense. 'Our borders are the most secure they've ever been.' No, it's not. And we all know that. 'Well, this was a workplace violence situation.' No, it wasn't. We know it's Islamic extremism. Your arrogance tells you that we're going to believe that, but none of us do, but we accept it.
"'Common Core math', no, that doesn't work. Your arrogance. 'Don't worry. We can bring Ebola in, and we don't have to close the airspace.' I have news for you, gang, a humbling is coming. And unless we turn now and start to be more humble, more kind, more gentle, and reroute ourselves in common sense in the things that we learned from the gods of the copybook headings, to quote Kipling, if we don't start routing ourselves to things that all men once found self-evident, a humbling is coming. And I fear this might be the beginning of one. And you should prepare."
"Now is the time. Hopefully all of this passes, but now is the time to prepare. One way or another, whether it's this or something else, a humbling is coming."
