Glenn Beck's History Lesson for America: Frankrak D. Obamavelt Is a Communist Hitler, and the True Difference Between Europe and the U.S. Involves Trains or Something
You kind of have to respect a guy who can keep a straight face while comparing Kristallnacht to the G20 protests. (Totally the same thing. Totally!) Really! It's a skill. And most most people — burdened by consciences, as they are — just can't pull it off.
But that Glenn Beck, he's a different story! He's the King of Comparing Nazi-Sanctioned Pogroms Against Jews to Protesters Protesting Bankers' Bonuses!
Oh! So that's how political science works. It's just like Thomas the Train! Except a dumbed-down version.
I guess that the real take-away message is that fear over economic collapse leads to racists renting space in Madison Square Garden. Wait, what? I've really lost the thread of this. Why did I make myself watch this? Do yourself a favor and don't have watched that.
There is one good bit, though…
"If you add two elements, fear and hunger, people will listen to anybody who says I have the answer… When I say anybody, I mean anybody."
You don't say.
