Vote Glenn Beck.

He pulled this out for his speech at CPAC too, and I didn't know what point he was trying to make then either. I'm assuming it's along the lines of,
1) Communists in the 30s didn't like the constitution, which is bad (Argument by Dismissal)
2) Modern progressives don't like the constitution (Argument by Generalization, Pious Fraud)
3) Modern progressives are communists, which is bad (Affirming the Consequent)
Who cares, people still eat it up.

The logical leaps that he makes are utterly insane. Here's how to be Glenn Beck-- find two absolutely different things, then find some tenuous commonality between them. Deliver it with a straight face... and feed the crazies more insanity to fuel their delusions.
"Do you know what the holocaust and this hostility toward the tea party have in common? We'll I'll tell you... and I am frightened. I... am...very... frightened. Both situations involved a evil, albeit charismatic leader trying to silence a group of people. Mr. President! We will not tolerate this teabagger holocaust!"--

::looks to camera:: "...we Communists..."
That's some fine acting, Mr. Beck. I hope that you win whatever award is applicable to your crazy ass.

And yet that generation is the one that made the America he grew up in, the one he keeps blathering on about, asking what happened to it?
I realize I'm using the words "grew up" quite wrongly, but there you go.

Dear Glen Beck, you pompous idiot:
Nazis and communists and progressives are not the same thing.
A high school graduate.

Are we going to have to wait until everyone who was born before 1980 is dead before we can finally stop hearing about communist plots? If there ever was a communist plot to take over this country it clearly fizzled out decades ago. The vigil can end.
No it didn't. Up in Canada we are socialists and we are planning a new world order centered in Europe. We feel that until the entire world has a united government that can make decisions for the whole planet, the alien ambassadors camped at Area 51 will simply refuse to admit us into the galactic society and the Reptiloids will have won.
To that end we are trying to convince the world to play hockey so that we can put RFID chips in their helmets and have a full background database for each and every player.
But the god damned Europeans and their soccer this and soccer that are just fucking everything up.
I firmly believe that if South Park had never existed, the use of "commie" as a common epithet wouldn't currently be in use. Like a lot of humor, a great many conservatives I went to college with didn't seem to get that Eric Cartman wasn't there to be emulated; he was a fat racist dick. This, however, seemed to appeal to them for some reason, and all of a sudden "hippie" and "commie" became standard argot for them, divorced from what they actually meant or the history behind them. It's just another word they haul out when they don't like someone and want to sound Republican.

For all this talk about being sympathetic to Nazis you'd think someone would call in and mention the relationship between Prescott Bush Sr., and a Nazi industrial magnate named Fritz Thyssen.
