Seriously, I think this guy has gone off the deep end. I’m not kidding about that.
BONUS BECK: From last week — big payoff at the end so be patient…
I mean, this is waaay beyond McCarthyism. Beck is accusing the titan of American capitalism, John Rockefeller, of having been a secret communist. How does he get there?
For those who won’t watch the video, it goes something like this: Rockefeller was an early American progressive, which actually means he was a communist, and they have connections to the fascists. And we know this because Rockefeller left clues to his true legacy with these communist art pieces which are hidden in plain sight, and since we have people in our own time who call themselves progressives they must actually be communists (possibly fascists?).
Olbermann had some fun with this, culminating in pointing out the fact that Fox News headquarters at 1211 Avenue of the Americas, across the street from 30 Rock, is actually part of Rockefeller Center
By the way, Glenn Beck is still losing advertisers.
