Glenn Beck, meet Dan Brown

With stunning logic, Beck ties together the art of the Rockefeller Plaza with progressives, communists, and fascists, even going so far as to link Mussolini, the Rockefellers (though he's never specific about which ones) and Van Jones.

Van Jones, by the way, recently resigned as Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the Council on Environmental Quality after a particularly harsh string of attacks from the right, predominantly led by Beck himself, who constantly referred to “former black nationalist, avowed communist Van Jones” as a dangerous “communist-anarchist radical.”

Though its also worth noting these smears all took place after
Color of Change, an organization Van Jones co-founded, successfully convinced 57 (and counting) sponsors to cease advertising with the Glenn Beck show after Beck said President Obama was "a racist" with a "deep-seated hatred for white people."

From's homepage (emphasis added):

"Beck is on a campaign to convince the American public that President Obama's agenda is about serving the needs of Black communities at White people's expense. It's repulsive, divisive and shouldn't be on the air."
This comes as yet another in a long line of ridiculous conspiracy theories presented by the Radio Host turned Fox News Pundit.
