    Glenn Beck ‘Horrified’ by ‘America’s Latest Propaganda Machine’

    Oct. 17, 2013 8:30pm Erica Ritz

    Glenn Beck on Thursday broached a topic that he said “horrified” him when it was brought to his attention roughly two weeks ago, describing it as an “effort to re-write our history and catalyze a new culture for America” with the help of “America’s latest propaganda machine.”

    Beck proceeded to tell his viewers about two groups, the first called “Imagining America” and the second called “The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture.”

    The latter isn’t actually a body of the United States government, but in the group’s own words, “the nation’s newest people-powered department, founded on the truth that art and culture are our most powerful and under-tapped resources for social change.”

    Beck highlighted various individuals affiliated with the organizations, who he described as “the people that will be teaching and influencing your children” through “art and music and film and history books.”

    Among the topics the individuals were caught on tape discussing was the fair redistribution of wealth and how “we’re funding the arts through the Cultural Development Fund, which is upwards of $20-some-odd million funding our cultural communities.”

    Beck also said Imagining America was created by Bill Clinton, and that its membership now includes roughly 90 universities including Columbia University, Brown University, the University of Chicago, and more.

    Many receive funds from the Soros-linked Tides Foundation, Beck added, in addition to various government grants.

    “Several of the board members work closely with the government, what a surprise!” Beck remarked. “…So we have the government, radicals, and the universities, and some of their affiliates are actually public officials. They actually hold conferences and presentations about how to re-author American history, and it’s [funded] by you.”

    Laughing at him and thinking he needs help for his extreme paranoia is not the same thing as fearing him.

    The only thing that fears Glenn Beck is Palin and Coulter.

    I remember when liberals supposedly feared Mitt Romney. Good times.

    Before that, we supposedly feared Sarah Palin. More good times.

    Yeah! You are a cagey one. All of us liberals had better not try to challenge you. You seem so smart! This post alone will send all limp-wristed libs running. You are just brilliant.

    Glenn digs deep, deep into their shit and do you know what he found out,
    their shit stinks, full of corruption, tax evaders, criminals, terrorist and a
    bunch of community organizers. Don't forget the programs and bills that will
    lead to a socialized America called hope & change...:D
