When Glenn Beck spits ‘progressive’ does anyone else hear ‘Jew’?

As someone who has been studying far right bigotry for 17 years now, I listen to this compilation of Glenn Beck talking about “progressives,” and I hear the same bigotry used to smear Jews over the years – but instead now the word being used instead of “Jew” is “progressive.” Listen to the language. An infection. A disease. A cancer. They lie, chat and steal. Creeping their way into the system under the cover of darkness. They hate the Constitution, they distort history.

Also, note how Beck is now trying to demonize the word “progressive” the way Republicans spent the last several decades demonizing the word “liberal.” More from Crooks and Liars, and here’s the compilation of Beck.
