This is quite a script. My first reaction is that the script is intended as predictive programming... Beck is seeding the thoughts of his right-vectored audience (and he's most definitely using NLP with the way he paces his speech) with the following excerpts:
this is the time that tries mens souls, we are about to enter that territory;
the most dangerous time in any regime, especially a radicalized regime, is when it is in collapse;
watch the uber-left... pray that Obama moves to the center. If he does, pray that the secret service care for that man, and that that man is never left alone;
he [Obama] has invited 911 Truthers into the White House and into his Administration. If "they" believe that he [Obama] is just "another one of these guys," he is in danger.
So, here some initial thoughts and meanderings out-loud...
First, obviously he is lacing his message with fear, by going into the Republic is collapsing msg. This sets the environment for any NLP that is being employed and further alters the way the content is received in the brain. More specifically, fear creates a neural environment that results in messages being sent directly to the Amygdula (performs primary role in the processing and memory of emotional reactions), bypassing traditional processing of messages via the cerebral cortex. This is similar to what Dr. Cameron did when creating multiple personalities, using trauma to anchor programming directly into the Amygdula while the conscious part of the brain was unaware of these events (I wouldn't be surprised if this is what AVATAR is doing as well).
Second, the content Beck is anchoring is while you are [possibly] in this state is...
that the republic is falling;
these are dangerous times for men;
that the POTUS is in danger of assassination by a 911 Truther.
As many of us have seen, especially those who follow the various liberty or patriot movements, Beck has successfully filled a media leadership role in those markets (ie vectors). Beck is now predicting some very ominous events, and I imagine that some could actually refer to these so-called predictions as actual calls-to-action. All in all, fanatical broadcasts of this nature by a controlled-opposition media actor could obviously lead to a "justifiable" witch hunt in the patriot and liberty vectors, even if none of the predictions come to fruition.
This broadcast stunt should clearly illustrate to people the reason idolatry has been labeled a sin by more than one religion. Blindly following of another can easily lead to manipulation of the followers as they form groups that exhibit cult-like behavior. Now that so many have allowed themselves to be associated with this media-actor, they will learn that they were deceived and possibly experience harsh penalties for associating with such a fanatic.
P.S. I wonder if this was released at this time because of the Republican victory in Mass., perhaps giving them some possible real resistance to their health care plan. I'm not prepared to throw anything off the table at this juncture.

The Beck - Alex Jones - Hannity, etc. entertainment circle-jerk is never ending. Just like your daily soap operas, you could turn them off for a year, come back, and never feel like you missed a thing.
