Though he's been losing advertisers due to a boycott lately, Fox News' Glenn Beck hasn't let that stop him. Instead, he's doubled down on his usual act, hosting a full week of over-the-top conspiracism last week, and has been rewarded with some pretty stellar ratings.

Now, he's gone even further. On his radio show Monday, Beck had this to say:

Let me give you the last piece of evidence that there is a revolution going on, and it is coming. It is -- there is a revolution, and they think they can get away with it quietly.

They think they -- and they -- they -- you know what? At this point, gang, I'm not sure, they may be able to because they are so far ahead of us. They know what they're dealing against; most of America does not yet. Most of America doesn't have a clue as to what's going on. There is a coup going on. There is a stealing of America, and the way it is done, it has been done through the -- the guise of an election, but they lied to us the entire time.

Some of us knew! Some of us we're shouting out, you were: "this guy's a Marxist!" "No, no, no, no, no, no." And they're gonna say, "we did it democratically," and they are going to grab power every way they can. And God help us in an emergency.
