Glenn Beck has a new therapy to relieve stress in America. When you're angry about something like Chris McDaniel's defeat, just stop whatever you're doing and shoot your rifle a few times.
June 25, 2014

Glenn Beck called into his radio show from his ranch and was whining about Orrin Hatch and other Republicans who had supported Thad Cochran's victory of the Tea Partiers' new favorite toy, Chris McDaniel. Beck got so riled up over it that he ran outside his yard and started shooting off his rifle to relieve the stress.

Sen. Thad Cochran narrowly defeated Tea Party-backed challenger Chris McDaniel in Mississippi’s GOP runoff Tuesday, and many media outlets are suggesting Cochran’s heavy courtship of black Democrats was key to his success.

The issue infuriated Glenn Beck, who said on his radio program that Cochran’s actions are proof that “establishment” Republicans are “much more comfortable with having Democrats come out and vote, than having their base come out and vote.”

Beck grew so angry at one point during his broadcast — which he is doing from his ranch this week — that he briefly stepped away from the microphone to shoot his rifle.

That's pretty out there and I imagine it was meant to influence other right wingers to adopt a similar behavior.

Hey militia members, are you angry? Just pull off a couple of rounds to lessen your stress. And while you're at it, scream "the revolution is upon us, " while your firing away for some added relief.

Can you help us out?
