    Where's the Hannity option? I despise that guy. His shows are nothing more than propaganda. There is very little substance, hardly a single thing left true and unmolested. Something heavy should fall on him.

    What does Glenn say about Che and Mao and how they relate to American progressives?

    Can you please provide specifically what you say is incorrect here?

    Glenn Beck - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On March 11, 2010, Glenn Beck noted on his TV show that social justice had been a theme of the controversial Father Charles Coughlin, as well as of American Nazi sympathizer Fritz Julius Kuhn who in 1939 called for a "socially just white gentile ruled United States"[147][148]. The media reported Beck was asking Christians to leave their churches if they hear preaching about social justice because they were code words for Communism and Nazism. This prompted outrage from some Christian bloggers such as the Rev. Jim Wallis, leader of a Christian social justice organization, who blogged "What he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show.” [149][150] In response to Glenn Beck’s comments, Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church Pastor Ronald Garner placed a sign in front of his church reading, "SORRY MR BECK JESUS PREACHED SOCIAL JUSTICE" [151]. Beck later clarified that he meant that if confronted with a Black liberation theology church such that of Rev Jeremiah Wright, one should find another parish, and noted that Wallis had served as a spiritual adviser to President Obama.[152] Wallis described this as a mischaracterization.[153] He also quoted Beck as threatening him with the words, "So Jim, I just wanted to pass this on to you. In my time I will respond—my time, well, kind of like God's time, might be a day, might be a week to you, I'm not sure. But I'm going to get to it in my time, not your time. So you go ahead and you continue to do your protest thing, and that's great. I love it. But just know—the hammer is coming, because little do you know, for eight weeks, we've been compiling information on you, your cute little organization, and all the other cute little people that are with you. And when the hammer comes, it's going to be hammering hard and all through the night, over and over."[154]
    In his defense, Beck did clarify his words:

    Glenn Beck - Current Events & Politics - Glenn hates poor people

    GLENN: Your church is there and that's why I said I don't care what church you go to. I don't care. As long as that church is telling you and helping you be a better person, be more honorable, be more honest, be more giving. But once that church starts to preach social and economic justice, especially through the structure of a giant government, well, now that's something totally different. Now, now you are talking about a church that is getting involved in government itself. We don't do that. We don't do that.
    Glenn Beck wouldn't know the last 500 years of Christian history in the Americas alone are flooded with Catholic priests who have preached about 'social justice'. If anything Christians in the Americas were one of the first groups of people to fight for social justice not just for themselves but for others too. One of the strongest 'social justice' movements by Christians was in the early 1920s and then another in the 1960s.

    But then of course in clarifying we see where his ignorance of the subject comes shining. While the early movements demanding social justice in the Americas could not have been done through government because 'nations' as we know them are a fairly early construct. The religious social justice movements of the last 200 years have for the most part come as a result of making demands through government. They haven't come from people simply sitting in church and working through churches. They have come through making demands through legislation, social programs etc.

    But Mr. Beck wouldn't know this. The saddest part is that his lack of knowledge on not just what 'social justice' is and how churches with all types of congregations have preached about it - is that he ended up saying churches shouldn't preach social justice through government. But only because that is all they've ever done since modern governments were created. I personally want churches to stay out of government but their role in ameliorating the living conditions of the poor, the hungry, the disenfranchised, the discriminated against through government - is unquestionable.

    Glenn Beck - Current Events & Politics - Glenn Beck: Moderate Candidate vs. Progressive President

    "Clemson University professor Steven Marks, author of 'How Russia Shaped the Modern World,' said that while Beck doesn't explicitly tie the left-wing totalitarian regimes of the past to contemporary liberals, that's what 'he's hinting at here.'

    "'No one in their right mind is going to defend Stalin or Mao or Che Guevara,' Marks said. 'The implication is that this is what's going to happen if Democrats get their way. This is just a complete lie.'"

    Wow, these poor professors had such a hard time finding anything wrong with our special that they had to go to "implied lies"? Can an implication be a lie? Besides that, what I'm really saying is: Open your eyes, Steven. The left is already defending people like Mao:
    Can you please provide specifically what you say is incorrect here?
    Just a quick browse from the second paragraph:

    So have we put the early 20th century progressive away, the kind of guy that would serve four terms, or five or eight or 100, until he dies? Have we left that? Have we returned to the country of our founders or have we returned to the early 20th century? I'm going to play you a piece of history that not a lot of people know because it's pretty much been washed out of our history books. Unfortunately for the progressives, there is audio. I'm going to play a fireside chat for you and I want you to listen to the words of FDR. This is something he tried to do and it caused enough problems in the country that he couldn't get it through. It's one of the reasons why he tried to pack the court. He tried to get around the rules any way he could but luckily back then there was enough of the greatest American generation that hadn't become slaves to the morphine or heroin that the federal government was giving out in aid. So they had to give out some aid like Social Security and that's about as far as he could go. He could do some cobbling of the industries, but he couldn't take it over. Because our grandparents wouldn't allow it. But now that our grandparents are dead, who's teaching the lesson that communism is evil? A communist country, China, our kids don't think China is evil. They are currently restricting families from growing. They will take your child away from you and kill them. But nobody thinks that's evil. We're buying our products from them. We don't have a problem with them. We're borrowing money. People are going over there all the time? Wow, that's quite a country. It's communist. Or is it progressive?
    1. Communism is evil.

    - It isn't.

    2. China is evil.

    - It isn't.

    3. Chinese government kills second children.

    - They don't because that is not what the one child policy actually is.

    The History of American Progressivism - Glenn Beck - FOXNews.com

    It didn't take long to prove Jefferson right, as the worst financial disaster in U.S. history happened largely because of the Fed's continual contraction of the money supply before and during the Great Depression. Progressives redistributed the wealth by implementing a "progressive" income tax sold to America as something that would lower tariffs and be a tax on the wealthy. Woodrow Wilson led passage of the Revenue Act in 1913. The rates only lasted four years, then all Americans had their taxes jacked up and they haven't come down since. The bottom tax bracket hasn't paid single digit percentages in taxes in over 60 years.

    They introduced the first nanny state efforts in 1919 with Prohibition. They convinced the nation to ban a drink.

    Then, the final straw: The president of peace, just a few months after narrowly winning re-election, entered America into World War I. It was billed as the war to end all wars because progressives thought they had the solution to world conflict and brought us the League of Nations. Another failure.
    Entirely false. The Great Depression was caused for the same reason the housing crisis in the 2000s happened though on a much smaller scale. Overconfidence in the market allowed people to take risks during the 1920s. Banks started lending more and more money out.

    Need I really go on?

    I dislike Bill O Reilly. He just sounds like a liberal in conservative's clothing.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Four months later, on July 7, Savage was fired from his MSNBC television show after remarks made in response to a caller, later identified as prank caller Bob Foster, who insulted Savage's teeth. Savage then asked if Foster was a "sodomite", to which the caller answered, "Yes, I am." Savage then said to the caller,
    "Oh, so you're one of those sodomites. You should only get AIDS and die, you pig; how's that? Why don't you see if you can sue me, you pig? You got nothing better to do than to put me down, you piece of garbage? You got nothing to do today? Go eat a sausage, and choke on it. Get trichinosis. Now do we have another nice caller here who's busy because he didn't have a nice night in the bathhouse who's angry at me today? Put another, put another sodomite on....no more calls?...I don't care about these bums; they mean nothing to me. They're all sausages....
    The day after being fired, Savage apologized on his radio program and on his website. He explained that he believed that MSNBC had gone to commercial to cover the gaffe of the attempted sabotage by a prank caller and that he was off the air at the time of the offensive comments, despite that clips of the segment shows Savage going to commercial after he made the comments. He also said his remarks were meant only to insult the caller, not all people with AIDS...

    conservative writer Bernard Goldberg ranked Savage number 61 in his book 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America...

    On his September 21, 1999 broadcast, Savage said that the motivation for female students who come from a Marin County private school to feed and provide services to the homeless is so they "can go in and get raped by them, because they seem to like the excitement of it ...

    On April 17, 2006, he said of Radical Muslims "They say, "Oh, there's a billion of them." I said, "So, kill 100 million of them, then there'll be 900 million of them." I mean, would you rather die would you rather us die than them?"...

    When Talkers Magazine awarded Savage with the publication's annual "Freedom of Speech Award," CSPAN opted not to broadcast a pre-recorded speech that had been sent by Michael Savage. Although the award ceremony had received coverage in previous years, C-SPAN did not televise it due to its policy of only televising such speeches when delivered in person. Savage stated that C-SPAN's decision was "censorship" and he told his listeners to express their ire to C-SPAN through calls and e-mails to the organization [C-SPAN aired it later]...

    "Now, the illness du jour is autism. You know what autism is? I'll tell you what autism is. In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out. That's what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they're silent? They don't have a father around to tell them, 'Don't act like a moron. You'll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don't sit there crying and screaming, idiot.'"...

    Which do I hate? None of them. Hate is their stock and trade, not mine. I do however pity almost all of them, what an awful way to go through life, spreading hate and lies.
