Glenn Beck Compares Fox News to Jews During the Holocaust

I have not been shy about the fact that I think Glenn Beck is a racist. I'm glad that major corporations are pulling their funding from his television show on Fox News.

Even so, I was surprised to learn that Beck feels no shame about diminishing the impact of the Holocaust by comparing the death of over 6 million Jews with criticism of Fox News [SOURCE].

Check out what he said on his radio show earlier today:



BECK: When they're done with Fox, and you decide to speak out on something. The old, "first they came for the Jews, and I wasn't Jewish." When you have a question, and you believe that something should be asked, they're a -- totally fine with you right now; they have no problem with you.

When they're done with Fox and talk radio, do you really think they're going to leave you alone if you want to ask a tough question? Do you really think that a man who has never had to stand against tough questions and has as much power as he does -- do you really believe after he takes out the number one news network, do you really think that this man is then not going to turn on you? That you and your little organization is going to cause him any hesitation at all not to take you out?

If you believe that, you should open up a history book, because you've missed the point of many brutal dictators. You missed the point on how they always start.
What are your thoughts as you listen to Glenn Beck's latest rantings?

Beck is thoroughly crazy - always making riduculous leaps and conclusions that aren't the LEAST bit related. It's sad that so many (volatile) people listen to him and take him so seriously.

Typical, he is the cable version of a shock jock.

I find it difficult to believe that any right thinking individual would listen to him let alone believe anything he says. Hmmmm....guess that's the problem! Only "right" thinking people listen to him!

Urban Scientist - I hope that corporations continue to back away from Beck. That seems like the best strategy to mute him.

Mike - Yeah. I hope that he gets fired like many shock jocks do.

Sojourner - Pun intended, huh?! :)
