October 28, 1938 was the first mass gathering of American Marxists in New York City. Glenn Beck seems set on marking the occasion. I’m referring to his over use of the word “socialism” to describe the Obama administration’s policies.
Whether it’s the federal bail-out or health care reform, conservatives like Beck seem determined to have Americans believe that the micro-brew drinking, Nobel Peace Prize winning, J. Crew-wearing Obamas are moving Americans toward a socialist ideology. New data proves that’s just not the case.
