"Media phenomenon Glenn Beck recently sat down with Newsmax for an exclusive interview offering his take on everything from President Obama, to the threat to talk radio and even a worry that our Constitutional government may disappear after a "Reichstag" event takes place.
The candid, wide-ranging interview appears in the October issue of Newsmax magazine, and is included in the special report "Glenn Beck Wants You!" that takes an in-depth look at the TV host whose Fox News show has been breaking ratings records since it burst on the scene in January.
Beck, who is also thriving on the radio, in bookstores and on the comedy circuit, sat down with Newsmax magazine's Editor in Chief Christopher Ruddy and voiced his concerns about a coming attack on talk radio.
But his real worry is that many Washington elitists really don't like our form of government and want to see it abolished.
"I fear a Reichstag moment," he said, referring to the 1933 burning of Germany's parliament building in Berlin that the Nazis blamed on communists and Hitler used as an excuse to suspend constitutional liberties and consolidate power.
"God forbid, another 9/11. Something that will turn this machine on, and power will be seized and voices will be silenced."
Beck has also been a fierce critic of President Obama. Still, he said he's open to a meeting with Obama. Beck doesn't believe the president "necessarily would" speak directly to him, adding: "I don't know very many politicians that speak directly."
Beck also talked to Newsmax about his critics, his best-selling book "Common Sense," his condemnation of George W. Bush's presidency, government control of the media and "the only thing that will save this country."
Beck himself has gushed enthusiastically about the "Glenn Beck Wants You!" report, telling radio listeners: "Gosh, thank you, Newsmax. What an in-depth article, and a fair article. Thank you.""
