Glenn Beck compares socialism to the 'Friday the 13th' horror movie during CPAC speech

Conservative political commentator Glenn Beck has been one of the many speakers to talk at the infamous CPAC conference this week.

The 55-year-old, best known for his popular radio talk shows, subscribed to the theme of the day at the event, which was to denounce socialism for the apparent evil that it is.

Rather than go on a long and boring attack on the movement and those that promote it, Beck instead decided to compare it to the classic 80s slasher movies, Friday the 13th.

Yes, that's what he actually said. Apparently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez trying to give her staff a minimum living wage is akin to a machete-wielding maniac killing horny students on a camping trip.

Addressing the crowds in National Harbour, Maryland, Beck began his speech by saying:

If socialism were a movie, socialism would be ‘Friday The 13th' because it seems to always stalk college co-eds who all think that the death and violence is just a scary story that never happened.

And they are so convinced that it will never happen to them that they mock the old person—the one person in town who saw it first hand—they call him crazy, a nut who still believes in ghost stories.

And then, they’re all dead. And then Jason, his body disappears, and only the old guy who saw it coming saw that the body is gone. And we have sequel after sequel, it happens time and again, in movie theatre after movie theatre, and in country after country.

Stop trying to hook up in some cabin in the woods and prepare, because Jason is coming. He’s right behind you, and this time he’s coming with a hammer and a sickle.

We're not entirely sure how Beck came up with this analogy and it sure doesn't make much sense but what we do know is that Beck hasn't seen Friday the 13th.

In the first movie, Jason's mother is the killer. Jason was the killer in ten of the subsequent 11 sequels, spin-offs and remakes (Friday the 13th: A New Beginning doesn't count).

Shame on you Glenn Beck for getting basic slasher movie knowledge so terribly incorrect.
