Fringe Mormon Group Makes Myths with Glenn Beck’s Help | Southern Poverty Law Center

A report from the Souther Poverty Law Center on the industry that Glenn Beck is fueling in extreme groups:

In some ways, the NCCS worldview can sound remarkably similar to that of antigovernment “Patriots,” whose movement has exploded in the last two years. So its not much of a surprise that it has found a number of new organizational allies among “Constitutionalist” groups such as the conspiracy-obsessed John Birch Society, the ultraconservative “pro-family” group Eagle Forum, and the Oath Keepers, a group of ex-police and military personnel who publicly promise to resist orders if they find those orders at odds with their understanding of the Constitution. At the 2010 National Liberty Unity Summit, a powwow of far-right groups, NCCS president Earl Taylor delivered the keynote address following speeches by leading Oath Keepers Richard Mack and Guy Cunningham.But mostly, the NCCS focuses on its seminars. And business has never been better.
