Glenn Beck Compares Norway Shooting Victims to Nazi Youth

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

Glenn Beck may be gone from Fox News, but he still has his radio show on which to make idiotic comments. On Monday while talking about the tragedy in Norway, he compared the camp where 68 young people were killed to Hitler's youth camps:

"As the thing started to unfold and there was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth. Who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing."

Beck can find the answer to that question by looking in a mirror. The Daily Mail pointed out that Beck is the man behind the 9/12 project, which runs "politically-minded camps" for kids all over America.

Norwegian officials were outraged, and suggested Beck do his homework before opening up his mouth.

"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, Torbjørn Eriksen, a former press secretary to Norway's prime minister, told the Daily Telegraph. "Glenn Beck's comments are ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful."
