Leave it to Glenn to completely fuck up his analogy. Listen, Angry Birds is a metaphor for the inevitable proletariat uprising against the powerful ruling class (pigs) who steal the fruits of our labor and retreat to their comfortable, well built mansions to feast on said fruits. Is it any coincidence that the initial birds you start the game with are red, indicating that the first blows in this campaign to take back what is rightfully ours will be struck by the true students of Marx and Lenin? Also notice the color of the other birds that eventually join the battle for social and economic justice: yellow, white, black all coming together in racial harmony to strike back at the conniving capitalist oinkers. One can only assume the blue birds represent the young democrats, using the internet and social technology to multiply the effects of their efforts. Notice the tactics used by the other birds as well: the game puts forth the idea that self-sacrifice (black birds) and the loss of your own offspring (white birds) may very well be what is need to prove your dedication to the cause, and to eventually ensure victory. This is all very obvious from playing the game for just a few minutes, and I'm sure to most among us this is old news, but I felt Beck's ridiculous interpretation needed some form of sane counterpoint.

As an angry bird myself, I am offended.

Would this make any more sense if I had ever played Angry Birds?

Glenn Beck certainly has a way with analogies. He's like... a thing that doesn't make them very well.

Well, it's obvious he's a Zombie vs. Plants guy, which explains the premium emergency seed buckets he sells in his commercial breaks.

Funny, an Angry Birds analogy was used by opponents of Ohio SB 5.

So the pigs rounded up and killed the jews? That doesn't seem like a good idea, jews can't eat pork. It would be much more beneficial to the pigs to round up the non-jews that eat pork and then give their money to the jews to keep them quiet.

This was weirdly entertaining. This would be comedy gold if I thought he wasn't fucking serious.
Can he seriously not go 5 fucking goddamn minutes without making a Nazi reference? Is it possible for him?

He has a good radio voice. Maybe he thinks he can say crazier shit if people aren't actually looking at him.

I am sorry I missed that major speech. It sounds like it was a really major speech, I mean there were a whole 5000 people there to here him, it was the Christians United for Israel! He was the KEY NOTE SPEAKER FOR GOD SAKES!

Paying taxes = having your unborn children stolen away in the night by hideous unearthly swine-men.

Insomnia has given me a stupid idea.
Since there are no female Angry Birds, and we are to assume the eggs are baby birds, does this mean beck is supporting gay adoption?
Or that he's at least against idiotic swine depriving the right of the gay birds to raise the baby?

Glen Beck has the kind of face everyone wants to punch

I'm going to show this to my girlfriend to fix her of her addiction to Angry Birds. I think only her hatred of Glenn Beck could do that.
