Beck called "Comrade Clinton" a "liberal fascist," Edwards "a communist"

On the January 24 edition of his CNN Headline News program, Glenn Beck asserted that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton's desire "to get back to the appropriate balance of power between government and the market ... sounds like the Soviet Union," and that "Comrade Clinton has railed against the excesses of the offensive executive pay packages and an out of whack tax code that favors the wealthy while holding down the middle class." He further called her "a liberal fascist ... who wants to redistribute the wealth in this country the way she believes is good for everybody."

Beck added that "promising to steal from the rich and give to the poor" only worked for former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin "because he killed 50 million people to force them to live that way." He concluded that Clinton's "fiscal ideas are plenty reason enough" not to vote for her, adding: "Unless you're [Venezuelan President] Hugo Chavez." Later in the program, Beck said of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards: "Now, put a red star on his furry head. He's a communist."....
