Is Glenn Beck Secretly Peddling Socialism?

News

"Fight the Right! Party with the Left!"

Don't look now, but Glenn Beck is popping up on a poster for an upcoming socialist event in Greensboro, NC. But before you start wondering if Beck is secretly peddling socialism, take a look at the full ad:

"Fight the Right! Party with the Left!" the poster, which is for a socialist fundraiser, says. "Join us for a night of radical politics that is sure to make Glenn Beck cry!"

The organization behind the poster is the Greensboro chapter of the International Socialist Organization (ISO). The reader who sent it to The Blaze did so because he happened to see it on the campus of his college, the University of North Carolina-Greensboro campus. And sure enough, a quick view of the ISO website shows the group does meet on the UNC-Greensboro grounds:

But that might not be surprising, considering the website shows that 24 of the group's branches meet on college campuses across the country. And that number only includes the branches that expressly list a campus meeting location. There are several, like the New York University branch, that have branch names specifically listing a college or university but no official meeting location.

Just to be clear, this is what the ISO stands for:

The International Socialist Organization (ISO) is committed to building an organization that participates in the struggles for justice and liberation today--and, ultimately, for a future socialist society. [...]

The misery that millions of people around the world face is rooted in the society we live in--capitalism, where the few who rule profit from the labor of the vast majority of the population.

That should make more than Glenn Beck cry.
