Professor Beck

From the conclusion of Dana Milbank’s “Glenn Beck is obsessed with Hitler and Woodrow Wilson. (I’m just saying.)

Sunday, October 3, 2010

The Apollo Alliance, funded by Soros, wrote Obama’s stimulus bill! Apollo’s Jeff Jones, along with Obama friend Ayers, “came right from SDS,” which is “code language for Marxism,” and formed the Weather Underground, responsible for “blowing up the Pentagon”! (Actually, the group blew up a bathroom, but still . . .) ACORN founder Wade Rathke is connected to SEIU because “his brother Dale is at SEIU, we think.” (SEIU denies this, and there is no evidence for it.) The whole bunch was inspired by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, who wanted to “get everyone on welfare, just start racking up the bills so the American financial system would eventually collapse.”

In summary, Woodrow Wilson mated with an Argentine revolutionary and a Chicago radical, gave birth to a 1960s antiwar group and a pair of Columbia academics, who in turn spawned ACORN, the SEIU, the Apollo Alliance, the Weather Underground, George Soros — and Barack Obama.

“We’ve told you that these are radicals,” Beck proclaimed as he outlined this airtight case. “We’ve told you that there are communists, Marxists, revolutionaries all around this president.”

And it’s all Wilson’s fault for being the fertilizer of the Tree of Revolution. No wonder Beck is so mad at him.

Wilson’s ties to Che, like Obama’s ties to Hitler, are history as you never read it — and as it never occurred. But that’s how history is taught in Professor Beck’s classroom. “I know you’re busy,” he pleaded with his Fox viewers one night in March 2010. “The last thing you want to do is pick up a book and read about Woodrow Wilson — I hate this guy.” But, Beck continued, “you’re going to have to. You’re going to have to learn history.”

Or, to be more precise, you’re going to have to relearn history, night after night, until it matches Glenn Beck’s worldview.
