Glenn Beck compares Norway victims to Hitler Youth

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Glenn Beck, who in June aired his final cable tv show on Fox News, is still on the radio and has found a new way to get his name into the headlines around the globe.

Instead of calling the president of the United States a racist, Beck focused on the scores of young people gunned down at a camp in Norway. Beck said the camp reminded him of Adolf Hitler’s infamous Hitler Youth.

“There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler youth. I mean, who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics? Disturbing,” Beck stated in the first minute of his syndicated radio show Monday.

Torbjørn Eriksen, the former press secretary to Norway’s prime minister, was not amused.

“Young political activists have gathered at Utoya for over 60 years to learn about and be part of democracy, the very opposite of what the Hitler Youth was about,” Eriksen told The Daily Telegraph. “Glenn Beck’s comments are ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful,” he added.

    “I mean, who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics?”

    Is it not just amazing that this excuse for a Zionist promoter is or pretends to be so ignorant that he is not aware of the Betar – “Brit Trumpeldor”, the Zionist Revisionist youth movement founded in 1923 in Riga, Latvia, by Vladimir (Ze’ev) Jabotinsky.

    Menachem Begin joined at the age of 16 becoming its leader by 1939, but in 1935 Betar were the only Jewish organization that had the right to wear their brown uniforms at meetings, which began and ended saluting with the right arm outstretched. That Zionist Israel flag behind Mr. Beck was the only flag other than the Swastika of the Third Reich which was authorized to be flown at the 47 Betar Youth camps in Nazi Germany.

    It may surprise many who are not aware of the degree of collaboration between Zionists and Nazis in Germany before the outbreak of war that in one recorded instance in 1936 a small group of SS men attacked a Betar Summer Camp and the Camp Leader complained to the local Gestapo. A few days later the Gestapo called the Betar Camp Leader to inform him that the offending SS Men had been punished and would he (the Betar Camp Leader) please inform the Gestapo what would be an acceptable payment for damages.

    Zionist Betar continue to run youth Camps and propaganda in support of the fascist, racist, and occupier regime of Israel in many countries including America and Canada today.

    Umm…anybody who wants a politically literate society? As far as i can make out, one of the best ways to create an aware and informed polity is to catch them young and tell them about the basics of politics – what their constitution guarantees, what their fundamental rights are, what the different branches in the govt owe them and other such stuff. How else would anyone learn differentiate between demagogues and sensible politicians?

    I can totally believe that he would find the idea disturbing though…it prolly is a thought that sends chills down his spine…

    Hitler Jugend has quite a lot to do with democracy as a youth fraction of NSDAP – this party came to power in quite a democratic way. It doesn’t mean that the tragedy is lesser because of that though.
