Do you remember when Glenn Beck promised a miracle from God at his 8-28 rally? On his Fox News program today Beck unveiled the power of the Lord through flying geese. A flyover by some geese is what Beck is citing as his miracle. Beck called it “God’s flyover.”
Here is the video courtesy of Media Matters:
Beck said, “I want to show you first that miracle that happened at 10:59. There are several versions of this, or at 9:59. There are several versions of what was happening. Do we have the videotape? At 9:59, what happened was there was a flock of geese. It was a flyover if you will. Somebody caught it on tape. Here’s the flyover. This was happening just as the opening music was starting. We wanted to have a flyover, but you can’t flyover in the District of Columbia. It was perfect coordination and perfect timing. Coincidence? Maybe? I think it was God’s flyover. It was not supposed to happen. We couldn’t get a flyover. We couldn’t even get anybody dressed in a military uniform to present the flag. We tried for almost a year. We couldn’t get it done. Thank God, we had our flyover.”
Beck is calling it a miracle that a flock of geese flew over an outdoor rally at the exact time that the rally was starting. If this is the best miracle that God could offer Beck, then he/she really must not think much of Beck and his cause. I would expect so much more from God than migratory bird pattern. Some geese flew over my house on Saturday too, so I guess everybody got a miracle. It could have been a miracle, or it could have been a FLOCK of FREAKING GEESE. They were outside. You know, where the birds fly. I don’t think this was all that big of strange and mysterious ways kind of thing.
You know Beck’s rally was a giant bomb, when he had to rely on Geese as his proof of God’s blessing. I wonder if it still would have been a miracle if the geese had flown overhead at 10:05, or maybe 10:17. Sadly, the crowd seemed to get more excited for the geese, than any of the actual human speakers. By the time Beck gave his speech, people were bored and leaving. The geese were the highlight of the whole morning.
Also if you look at the Zapruderesque geese footage, you see lots of green grass around the rally attendees. There seems to be plenty of room to move around. This certainly doesn’t seem like 300,000-500,000 or even a million people were there. It appears that Glenn Beck provided evidence on his own show that debunked his exaggerated rally attendance estimate. Glenn Beck has gotten so desperate that he is using random birds as proof of God’s stamp of approval. If this was God’s thumbs up then it seems that much like the rest of America God had little interest in the showboating of Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck.
At least now we know why Beck was rocking the Kevlar, damn socialist, community organizing, Obama geese.
