The video above comes to us courtesy of Right Wing Watch, which watches Glenn Beck so you don't have to. In it, you'll see Beck, holding back tears, advising his listeners on what they should do now that Obama has been reelected.

We've posted a transcript of the clip after the jump, but we suggest you watch. It's a gem. See also: Now You Can Wear Glenn Beck's Pants

We don't have the luxury of time I've been telling you for a while and I've even told my own staff. If the president wins, I don't know how we survive. I don't know how we survive the regulation that is coming to my industry. I don't know how we're going to survive the pressure and the tactics, because they have more flexibility now, and they remember their enemies. I don't know how we're going to survive because I won't compromise. I won't make a deal with the devil.

I want you to understand this: Inflation is coming. The fiscal cliff is coming. The dollar fell last night. Your taxes are going up. Your healthcare costs are going up. Your religion is going to come under attack. Gas, coal, and energy is going to become more expensive.

Remember that list we put out a few months ago of "Do these things?" I will tell you, last week we purchased some more farmland as a family, and may I recommend that, if you have the chance to buy farmland, you buy farmland. If you live in the East, may I recommend get the hell out of the East. Find a place where you are surrounded by like-minded people, and the best way to find those people is you should probably look at the maps of how counties voted, and get away as far as you can from where huge densities of people are like "I just need FEMA to help me!"

And gets your kids away from those schools that are indoctrinating them that socialism is okay. May I highly suggest (Beck pauses here, apparently overcome by emotion) you get grandfathered in with the second amendment today. And don't forget the ammunition.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
