Beck: OWS Debt-Canceling Effort 'Sounds Like The Golden Dawn Party'
As we noted yesterday, Glenn Beck is so insanely and rigidly ideological that it results in worldview in which everything is either black or white, so that anything done by someone with whom he disagrees or dislikes is inherently suspect and dangerous.
The extent to which this "all or nothing" worldview dominates Beck's understanding was perfectly expressed in this clip from the morning meeting yesterday during which producer Tiffany Siegel was commenting on a story about a project being run by Occupy Wall Street which uses donations to buy up consumer debt and then cancel it.
The project is called Rolling Jubilee and it works because lenders to whom the debt is owed often sell the right to that debt to third parties for pennies on the dollar. In this case, OWS buys up the debt and then, instead of trying to collect it, sends a letter to the person who owes the debt, telling them that it has been canceled and they are no longer obligated to pay it.
And all Beck can say when he hears about this effort is "gee, that sounds like the Golden Dawn Party."
The Golden Dawn Party is, of course, a fascist neo-Nazi political party in Greece and Beck's favorite catch-all term for warning about the coming resurgence of the Nazi movement in America and around the world:
