"Ask your kids tonight at dinner, 'What gives you the right?' Challenge them. Get in their face. 'You talk about 'I have rights, you know' -- really? Who issues them? Teach 'em a lesson. Push 'em.

(Mockingly) 'Well they're gonna cry; I'll hurt their feelings.'

(Shouts) PUSH 'EM! Because if you don't do it now, it's gonna be much worse when they're pushed and they're shoved and they're shot. Push them! Teach them! They need to know the truth, and they need to be pushed up against the wall once in awhile so they know they can defend themselves. They know they can survive! They don't run around like little girls crying at the drop of a hat. PUSH 'EM!"

-- Manic right-wing conspiracy-monger and talk-show host Glenn Beck, expounding on his parenting philosophy on his radio show Wednesday. The comments came after an extended rant about Beck's belief that rights are granted by god, not government.
