Glenn Beck Says Hurricane is a Blessing

16 Hurricane Coverage: Talk show host Glenn Beck has called Hurricane Irene a ‘blessing from God’, arguing the fatal storm would teach people to be better prepared for natural disasters.

Speaking on his radio program on Friday, he said he has been urging his audience to prepare for a ‘global disruption in food’.

Beck said while some have laughed at him, the storm will prove it is vital Americans stockpile supplies in the even of a disaster.
‘How many warnings do you think you’re going to get and how many warnings do you deserve?’ he asked.

‘This hurricane that is coming thorough in the East Coast, for anyone who’s in the East Coast and has been listening to me say “Food storage!” “Be prepared!”

‘Be somebody that can help others, you’ve heard me say this for years.’

‘Don’t be in a panic situation. If you’ve waited, this hurricane is a blessing. It is a blessing.

‘It is God reminding you – as was the earthquake last week – it’s God reminding you you’re not in control.

‘Things can happen. Be prepared and be someone who can help others so when disaster strikes, God forbid, you’re not panicking,’ he said.

But we need more people to be in a position that they don’t panic.’

  1. Why does Matzav keep posting what this Goy has to say? Even if we agree with him, what is his motavation? I would rather hear what Rav Chaim Kanievsky, Rav Shteinman, Rav Eliyashuv, etc… Has to say.

  2. I forgot the name of the company, I know Michael Medved’s a spokesman for it, but it’s basically food you can buy suitable for long term storage. I wonder if Beck’s also a paid spokesman.

    No issue with people making money, just saying….

  3. it is a blessing cause Hashem is reminding us to do teshuva NOW before things get worse C”V


  4. This hurricane is a sign that there’s a G-d running the world after all. With toeivah marriage legalized just a month ago, a flood or hurricane is not surprising.

  5. It is G-D telling us here in New York and the East Coast that Toeivah is disgusting and that we got that earthquake because of this shmutz.

  6. This whole fear-mongering, advising for preparation has been going on for the last # of years, giving impression that maybe much is being manipulated, all for ‘controlling the masses’. Sounds more like it’s coming from the ‘other side’ (sitra acher). But we know everything comes from Above and what we are getting are warnings, and judgment is, hopefully, being sweetened. All that’s happening, in NY with the enactment of marriage contracts, the world ganging up on Israel, etc., etc., thus, the warnings from Above. We pray we all wake up and smell the coffee and realize that nothing is by chance, and see what is real and what is not.

  7. The Earthquake was not because of Same Gender Marraige, otherwise it would’ve hit NYC directly. The Hurricane is a blessing. Doesn’t happen that often.

  8. #12, think you’re wrong. First of all, it did hit NY directly (Manhattan) that suffered flooding in the low lying ares of downtown (again the financial area) and power outages. Secondly, both the earthquake and this storm were just wakeup calls – kindly warnings from Hashem.

  9. Does anyone ever realize that we are getting a good work out for the blogs and political forums from the Glenn Beck Nonsense words of each year? I sure have written a number of comments this whole year.
    I just guess that this is the Beck that so many of our “Frumm” yidden say is our future savior of our planet! Wow! Some Savior!
