Glenn Beck appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” the day after the 2014 midterms, warning Republicans that President Obama was going to become more radical, and that the nation was entering the most dangerous period of its history since the Civil War.

I think this president, and I hope this is not true, but I think this president is going to go more radical. He doesn’t have anything to lose; he is going to subserve the uber-left. And the Republicans are not prepared for this. They are playing politics circa 1975, and they are not going to be prepared for it.
And I think that we have a very bad scenario headed our way because somebody – because the Democrats won’t be blamed on it because they will say, ‘We didn’t have anything to do with it. You know what? We are not as extreme as he is’. Somebody is going to be able to play the middle ground between the ‘evil’ Republicans and this president.
And I think it could get ugly. I think we are in the most dangerous period now than the Republic has been in since the Civil War, from now until probably spring of 2017.
