Glenn Tweedledum Beck: “George Bernard Shaw Was An Evil Man”
Beck’s minion blurts, “Ya, he’s more than a lovable old Irish writer.”
I personally think “Storm Trooper” Beck would be the happiest person at a book burning and obviously believes in censorship.
On this mornings radio show, Tweedledum Beck was railing against modern “progressives” and linking them together with Karl Marx, the Fabian Society and Shaw, who had been a member in the early 20th Century.
“We are going to tell you things that even the history books don’t tell you” Beck pontificates. “I’m going into the documentary business.” This in reference to his new, and I use the word loosely, documentary he’s releasing in partnership with Fox Network on Marx and the present progressive movement.
Since Mr. Tweedledum says he’s telling things the history books don’t tell us, I will state a few things they do: 1) The Fabian Society was for a minimum wage 1906. 2) Against hereditary peerages 1917 and 3) For the creation of a universal health care system 1911. They fought for slum clearance, a better military and a national educational system because
It is in the class-rooms that the future battles…for commercial prosperity are already being lost.
Beck trying to tie all this with Karl Marx and Communism fails since the “History Books” show that Leon Trotsky, a Bolshevik, revolutionary socialist and former Red Army General wrote:
Fabianism was an attempt to save capitalism from the working class…throughout the whole history of the British Labour movement there has been pressure by the bourgeoisie upon the proletariat through the agency of radicals, intellectuals, drawing-room and church socialists and Owenite who reject the class struggle and advocate the principle of social solidarity, preach collaboration with the bourgeoisie, bridle, enfeeble and politically debase the proletariat.
Maybe Mr. Beck would like children not to read Clement Moore’s, The Night Before Christmas, since it obviously teaches them about getting something for free or even distribution of wealth.
