Glenn Beck Fear Mongering Of The Day: Radical European Thought “Is Now On Our Shores”

Reported by Ellen - December 18, 2009 -

I think I’m going to start a new regular feature here, Glenn Beck’s fear mongering (or hate mongering) of the day. In our inaugural edition, Glenn Beck held up “a dangerous book” that's supposedly a manual for radicalism in Europe and warned his viewers that its philosophy is “now on our shores.” With video.

The book in question is called The Coming Insurrection. At about the 4:45 mark in the video below, Beck sighed theatrically as he said, “It is now on our shores. What you see in Copenhagen is from The Coming Insurrection (though Beck offered nothing to indicate a connection – other than his say so). This little book is dangerous. It talks, ‘You must destroy the family. You must go in. They’re tired of waiting.' It is a book of communism. The extreme uber left. Michael Moore said that he was reading this book over the summer. (Beck didn’t mention whether Moore has been working to destroy the family or what dangerous mischief he has made as a result of reading it.) The left is at a tipping point in America. They have huge majorities, a progressive president and they feel 'This is our time.'"

So is Beck going to try to ban books next? I wouldn’t put it past him.
