"Pat re Beck"

Hi John and Doves,
Pat - your post:- http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/apr2011/pat49.htm
I have always an innate feeling (plus the infallible scriptures) that the AC will be so super subtle that he would be able "to deceive, even the elect". The AC will come as a lamb. Can you imagine just how panicked people will be - with all the absolute horror upon the earth? Never mind the ' normalcy bias'. People will be suckered in because they want a return to PEACE and SECURITY. Quite frankly - I imagine that anyone, talking some semblance of sense, would do! Those days are going to be horrific. I am not saying that Glenn Beck is the AC. What I am trying to convey is that the AC will be as hugely popular as Glenn Beck. He will say all the right things and convey the idea that he can make it all right. Make the bogey man go away - so to speak!
Let's remember - the AC is nobody's fool. He knows how normal human beings operate. He knows how we abhor the violence of Islamic Fundamentalism. He knows that it's not a winner - when it comes to peace and worship. It's incredibly 'handy' when it comes to violence and taking over the world's wealth!! A very useful tool, indeed. If anything, the AC will pre present a 'bad guy' in the form of a religion or country so that, when the pooh hits the fan, he can step up and say, "I am your man". It WILL be someone like Glenn Beck. Subtle - attractive and persuasive.
I am not trying to restart an old argument. Let's be clear. I will say that this is not the last we will hear of Glenn Beck.
