Former Fox News personality Glenn Beck said he believed Tuesday morning that he was capable of leading a “new civil rights movement” in America after claiming that fascism was coming to Europe.

Appearing on televangelist James Robison’s Life Today show, Beck commented on the popular Occupy Wall Street movement.

“We are in an era now of a new civil rights movement,” he said. “We are the ones that have the righteous calling for the civil rights movement. We are the ones. When you try to say that Martin Luther King would have been there with the rapes and the murders and everything else with Occupy Wall Street, I’m sorry, you are wrong.”

The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Beck created an Oval Office set for his online show to give presidential type speeches.
