Glenn Beck claims to admire the Founding Fathers. Says that the Founders would hate "progressives." That "progressives" were the tyrants and slave owners in the days of the Founders.
So I guess the Founders must have hated themselves.
I have absolutely no patience for anyone who says that Fox can claim to be a news network while employing anti-intellectual hacks like Hannity or Beck because they're "opinion." Opinion isn't a licence to toss journalistic standards of intelligence and factuality out the window in favor of profoundly stupid, reality detached hate-mongering.
It should be understood that within the context of the clip provided at the link and of his show in general Beck is saying that progressives are working towards making slaves of conservatives (and minorities.) At least that's the inference that many in his audience are going to draw.
