Glenn Beck's The Revolutionary Holocaust

The Revolutionary Holocaust

Glenn Beck's The Revolutionary Holocaust aired this evening. I found the six segments on YouTube and glued it together in a playlist. Here's how his website describes this documentary:
A groundbreaking hour long special where Glenn Beck takes us back in time to examine the roots of socialism and communism and the evil that followed. We all know about the horrors of the holocaust where the pure evil Hitler inspired claimed the lives of millions of innocent people. But most do not know about the millions upon millions of lives lost in a different genocide of the Ukrainian people under the Stalin regime. This special also takes a look behind the iconic fashion symbol of Che Guevara showing that the myth doesn't tell the story of the man who was a blood thirsty killer. We meet a family who saw first hand what a monster the man was. They know the cost of communism and you will too when you hear their story, and who can forget about Mao Zedong? A leader responsible for 70-million deaths during his reign. All communist. All killers. We will show you things you've never seen but need to.
Towards the end of the documentary, one of the interviewees recommends The Black Book of Communism. While not mentioned in the documentary, R. J. Rummel's Death by Government is another good book on the subject of tyrannical governments. Heyek's The Fatal Conceit debunks the socialist conceit that property rights are not foundational to civil society. And, of course, checkout Glenn Beck's site for much more!
