I got home from work last night to find HWMNBMOTI cooking and listening to CNN. The man (on TV, not HWMNBMOTI) was talking about the kerfuffle related to Glenn Beck and went on to quote him. This is verbatim what Glenn said on his radio show:
“As the thing started to unfold and then there was a shooting at a political camp which sounds a little like you know the Hitler Youth or whatever... I mean who does a camp for kids that's all about politics...disturbing.”
Political camp like Hitler Youth:
1) The Labor party, if we had it in the US, would be the equivalent of the blue collar democrats... Workers, fairness in the work place. These are the midwest democrats who worked for unions in manufacturing... This is a very MODERATE group. Hilter would be... well... Glenn Beck.
2) The TERRORIST was a Neo-Nazi. Why on earth would he attack a group 'like Hitler Youth'? Answer? He wouldn't.
Who does a political camp?
I'll tell you who... we have these in the US, too—some party affiliated, some not. In fact GLENN BECK is behind some of them. But some are age-old: ever hear of Boys State or Girls State? Model UN? What are these but CAMPS for future leaders? But yes, there are also Young Democrats and Young Republicans--in high schools and colleges... the same ages as the youth in question. [And frankly, I would SO MUCH prefer political process camps over... say Sexual Reorientation camps (talk about an agenda)]
Camp for kids
Residents of this camp were 15-25. Young adults would be a more accurate term. And the FOCUS of these camps IN NORWAY is learning the democratic process. Learning the history, legislation process, leadership skills, THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS (oh yes, surely evil—Hitler was all about Democracy, right? *rolls eyes*)... I suspect, though I don't have friends who have gone... there is also a focus on learning compromise. Norway has multiple parties, so if they don't work together, nothing would ever get done. (I wish they taught THAT in the US)
Anders Behring Breivik professes but doesn't display Christian Values.
Glenn Beck professes but doesn't display Christian values.
Anders Behring Breivik attacked moderate liberals.
Glenn Beck attacks all liberals.
Anders Behring Breivik is a deep xenophobe who wants people not like him to leave.
Glenn Beck is a deep xenophobe who wants people not like him to leave.
Anders Behring Breivik is a right wing extremist.
Glenn Beck is a right wing extremist.
Anders Behring Breivik wants the democratic process to break down because he thinks only he is right.
Do I really need to say this? Can't you see it's the ultimate goal of the right wing extremists? To BREAK the US government so badly it has no power.
So there you have it. Incontrovertible proof that GLENN BECK IS A TERRORIST.
Which begs my original question... look at all those facts he got wrong? Is he STUPID? Or is he intentionally MISLEADING the stupid? Or both.
I have to conclude the answer is BOTH, and say not only that, but it was ALSO in extremely poor taste—comparing victims to Nazis. I say we douse him with honey and leave him on an ant hill.
