Glenn Beck Compares Dead Norwegian Kids to Hitler Youth

There is no form of life lower than Glenn Beck.

"...the rightwing US broadcaster and Tea Party favourite, has compared those who were massacred on the Norwegian island of Ut√łya to the Nazi party's youth wing.

"There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler youth, or, whatever. I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics. Disturbing."

There's a special place in hell for Beck. How dare he call himself a Christian. The hypocritical insane ramblings of the Has-Been, aka Glenn Beck is now resorting to attacks on dead children. Will his god like this? Not likely. People are suffering in Norway!!! Their children are dead!! They are grieving! Can he just shut up already!!??!!

He needs to shut his fat face up and go away!!! The Nazis destroyed the coast of Norway in World War II. Obviously Beck doesn't remember history.

Now that his horrifically bad TV show is off the air, he can take some time off and read about history and learn how the Norwegians suffered under the hands of the Nazis and how his remarks hurt more than his uneducated self obviously doesn't understand.

As a Norwegian-American, this really made me angry today.

I thank Isewinca for his/her comments about Norway suffering during WWII.

I wouldn't have wished for the suffering of the young people at the island in Norway. I wouldn't have wished for the suffering of members of the Hitler Youth either. They were young kids and teens.

Were the Norwegian kids too young for politics and civic engagement? Definitely not. In Canada, we are desperate to teach our students about politics and civics. Let us hope that they become active in some way in civic engagement while they are young teens. They will hopefully remain engaged in politics as they become adults.

Beck belongs in a loony house.

Anders Behring Breivik’s own father says that he wished his son should have committed suicide because he finds his son's actions so ghastly.

How disgusting can this man possibly be? There aren't young people in the U.S. who don't have conventions regarding the Democrates or Republicans?? You bet there are ...could they be called camps as well??

So as a severe social liberal (and I seriously hope not just social liberals feel this way for the sake of mankind)I was sickened to hear this. So angered was I that I went and listened to the entire Beck broadcast (iPad in hand to take notes and prepare myself to jump into the fray and eviscerate the hack). Well...... its a non event. Did he say that the quote. Hell yea he did. Just as it is being reported. Is it out of context. Not for a minute ahead or 3 minutes after.
But..... He spent most of the broadcast segment grieving for those poor kids and denouncing ANY sort of violence, especially any in the name of religion or politics.
Feel free to hate his views (and Ill pile on with you) feel free to slam him for other things he has said ,which I can not speak to (as I actually research for myself before offering an opinion and I have not on anything else about Beck).
But I would not pick this comment to attack him on. Lets find something else.

Hi GHB. Thanks for the information. I see your point and it's troubling. Spinning information is supposed to be the other side's forte. That's the stock in trade of Glenn Beck and should be shunned by our side.

Thanks again.
