One of the 14 Characteristics Of Fasicsm, as defined by Dr. Lawrence Britt is: Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts –
“Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.”
Enter paranoid psychotic Glenn Beck. His latest freak-out is aimed at The Common Core Standards Initiative whose mission is to provide
“…a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”
Sounds pretty good, right? Wrong! According to Beck this is a global conspiracy by the Chinese, who will use Islam to take over the world!
Guano-Psychotic Beck feverishly placed dots on his chalkboard rambling, “I believe that you are also then going to be co-ruled by a “thugocracy” … and I think it’s going to be, at least in our case, I think it’s going to be China. China will be the balance of our power. They will use Muslim [sic] Islam, as, uh, the real enforcers that they will then help us, and whoever is in power in our country will be ruled by an American. But uh, it will be a technocrat that will answer to China, and they will stomp things out and use Islam as much as they have to to get rid of anybody who’s, uh, standing up, I think.”
