Ed Shultz tweets it was gays, not Jews, most persecuted in Nazi Germany

Ed Shultz tweeted and then quickly deleted a strange comment about the Holocaust on Tuesday, but, as we have come to learn, you can never really delete something entirely once it has been posted on the Internet. In the tweet, Shultz claimed the “gay people were really the ones being persecuted in Hitler’s Germany.” On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the “disturbing statement.”

Below is a screenshot of the tweet:

“I would love to see if the [Anti-Defamation League] or anybody else is going to come out against this. This is a disturbing statement,” Glenn said. “[It] leads you to believe that it wasn't the Jews… Yeah, homosexuals, alcoholics… Bible scholars… communists, capitalists – they were all rounded up. They all had a different star… So for Ed Schultz to say homosexuals were persecuted – anyone who would not play ball with that regime was persecuted.”

While the tweet was taken down shortly after, Shultz doubled down on the theory during a segment on his MSNBC show. Shultz apparently took offense to comments recently made by Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) in which he likened the intolerance of Christian views on homosexuality to Nazi intolerance.

As National Review Online reported, Shultz proceeded to cite a statistic from the United States Holocaust Museum that between 5,000 and 15,000 gays were interned in concentration camps in Nazi Germany. Schultz didn’t mention anything about the 6 million Jews who faced the same fate.

“Nobody will say anything about it,” Glenn said disgusted. “Can you imagine if I said anything like that? Can you imagine the outcry?”

“This is why I wonder. I know what I have been commanded to do in my belief. But I wonder… how is it going to do any good to document this stuff, so the American people can see it and they can see what's going on in the world. What difference does it make,” Glenn asked. “I would ask for your prayers for clarity… because I don't want to waste a second of time. And I don't understand what His vision really is. I'm doing my best, and He just won't be clearer with me… He'll put me in the place I'm supposed to be, I know, wherever that is. But I keep looking at things saying, ‘Did I miss something?’ We're just supposed to stand as a witness. That's all you have to do. Stand as a witness.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
