The 912 Project: Guns, God and Anti-Government from Glenn Beck

The hottest new host on Fox News this year Glenn Beck has launched The 912 Project, a site dedicated to sharing core principles and values that Americans are said to live by.

The site, which is currently offline as we write this post, defines essential American qualities such as believing in god, being opposed to income tax, being pro marriage (as long as your straight) and many other gems.

It’s more of the same that we’ve seen from the hard right recently, this whole socialism is bad, our money is being stolen for us, Barack is a Communist etc etc. While some of those points might be true, what they continue to overlook is that Bush created the mess the country is in today, and Bush was the one that run up the foreign debt and started the bailouts. But no, it’s only bad now a new, black guy takes over the mess.

In the show launching the The 912 Project, Beck interviewed Chuck Norris, who earlier this week said that thousands of militia were preparing for a military takeover of the United States. If that doesn’t say batshit crazy, I’m not sure what else can.

Here’s the list the 912 Project are based on

The 12 Values:

* Honesty
* Reverence
* Hope
* Thrift
* Humility
* Charity
* Sincerity
* Moderation
* Hard Work
* Courage
* Personal Responsibility
* Gratitude

The Nine Principles

* 1. America is good.
* 2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
* 3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
* 4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
* 5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
* 6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
* 7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
* 8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
* 9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
