Glenn Beck continues to obsess over everything "progressive," both by labeling anything he currently dislikes as progressive, and by complaining whenever anything else is labeled progressive in any way, shape or form.
Beck complained on his program that he had found a progressive dishwasher, progressive appliances, progressive paint, and even a paint color named after Woodrow Wilson.
Naturally, Beck took this as evidence of a brainwashing conspiracy.
"Look at how they are just embedding this everywhere to make sure that you always understand that progressive is a good thing that means newfangled, that means special," said Beck. "They are embedding it everywhere."
This time, Beck's gripe was with a lack of cursive writing in the curriculum. Which, yes, you guessed it, is evidence of another brainwashing conspiracy.
"Why are they not teaching cursive writing?" Beck asked. "They're not teaching cursive writing because the easiest way to make somebody a slave is to dumb them down, make sure they can't read or write."
If Beck would like to know what really might be a driving force behind the lack of cursive writing in the curriculum, here's an experiment he can try at home: Instruct everyone at The Blaze, in protest, to write all of their articles in cursive for the rest of the month of October and see what happens to his web traffic.
Beck may not want to hear this, but it's the truth: Not everything is proof of a government conspiracy.
