Well, the mainstream media is at it again. Rather than focus on the important stories of the day, they MSM has once again decided to try and troll for web traffic by putting “Glenn Beck” and “Hitler” in their headlines. It must work pretty well for them considering the great lengths they’ll go to try and make Glenn out to look like he’s trivializing The Holocaust, the greatest tragedy in modern history, when almost no other public figure has dedicated more resources to standing with the Jewish people. What’s the latest attack? Many outlets are claiming that during his speech at the NRA, Glenn compared Mayor Michael Bloomberg to Adolph Hitler. True? Nope.
“I would like to call for an apology now by the mainstream media, particularly ABC News, for smearing my name and saying that I am making Bloomberg look like a Nazi,” Glenn said on radio.
ABC News reported:
Glenn Beck roused the National Rifle Association’s annual convention this weekend with his attacks on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but he also aroused criticism by a major Jewish group for depicting the mayor giving what appears to be a a Nazi salute.
“I hate to do this to you, ABC News, but what you stop taking your stories directly from Media Matters, you might begin to have a little bit of credibility,” Glenn said.
A little research would have shown the Bloomberg image was inspired by an image of Lenin:
“I’m sorry this looks to you like Adolph Hitler, but this was actually the exact image ripped off Soviet propaganda art – who also killed a lot of people, yes. But you guys never seem to have a problem with Lenin. You never seem to have a problem with Mao. You never seem to have a problem with Stalin. Isn’t that weird?” Glenn said.
And did anyone call to actually see if Glenn used Nazi imagery in his NRA speech? Nope.
“You guys should learn history before you start pontificating,” Glenn said.
