Glenn Beck, who absurdly claims to dismiss conspiracy theorists, is always on the lookout for anything with the word “progresssive” in it. He’s found progressive dishwashers, progressive paint and even a crayon named for Woodrow Wilson. It’s all part of a grand conspiracy to “embed” liberalism in everything. I’ve promised to try not to use words like “insane” and “crazy” to describe Beck and his ilk, but it’s really difficult to do. It’s just such an easy shorthand for these claims that are so utterly detached from reality.
