Beck: We’re Marching Toward Fascism

CREDIT:

Every time I watch Glenn Beck I think to myself, “the next time I watch Glenn Beck he’ll be saying something less crazy than this; he’s hit the bottom of the barrel.” And yet:

Ali Frick notes “Though Beck claimed he didn’t mean ‘Adolf Hitler kind of fascism’ and that he was talking about ‘fascism with a happy face,’ he illustrated his point with more than a minute’s worth of Nazi footage, played dramatically on the full screen behind him.”

Beck not only manages to get good ratings, but serious players in the conservative movement appear on his show regularly. It’s enough to make you pine for Rush Limbaugh.
