Last Friday Glenn Beck aired a "documentary" which illustated the atrocities committed by historical leaders like Mao, Stalin, and Hitler. Throughout the documentary Beck hinted that these men were all somehow "progressives" and that progressive policies would lead our country to the same end.
POLITICO has since run a piece in which various professional historians contradict Beck. Their issue is not so much with Beck's condemnation of Mao, Stalin, and Hitler (almost every sensible person agrees they were evil dictators) but instead with Beck's twisted connection between these men and progressives.
