CNN's Beck asked of Edwards: "[W]hy not just start wearing the Soviet star on your head and the Workers World Party?"

Summary: On his CNN Headline News show, Glenn Beck said of John Edwards: "I listened to him last night give a speech, and, I mean, why not just start wearing the Soviet star on your head and the Workers World Party?" Beck added: "Good Lord in heaven. Was it a mistake for him to go after her [Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton] for crying and then also to join this great Soviet state?"

On the January 9 edition of his CNN Headline News show, host Glenn Beck said of presidential candidate and former Sen. John Edwards (D-NC): "I listened to him last night give a speech, and, I mean, why not just start wearing the Soviet star on your head and the Workers World Party?" Beck added: "Good Lord in heaven. Was it a mistake for him to go after her [Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY)] for crying and then also to join this great Soviet state?"

This is not the first time a media figure has associated Edwards with communism. On the December 10 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, host Bill O'Reilly noted that entertainer Harry Belafonte had endorsed Edwards and commented: "Oh, I guess that means Edwards has a lock on the Fidel Castro vote." Similarly, on the February 25 edition of the NBC-syndicated Chris Matthews Show, Jim Cramer, host of CNBC's Mad Money, said of Edwards: "He's a tort lawyer for heaven's sake. He's a -- that's the equivalent on Wall Street of -- he's [former Russian communist leader Leon] Trotsky."



First, this fucking putz writes a book entitled, "An Inconvenient Book," where he claims superior knowledge to Nobel Prize winner Al Gore. Now, CNN let's him get away with this crap.

Why doesn't Beck just wear a swastika and declare Hitler his leader?

I agree with your take on this knuckle-dragger.
