Mockumentary ‘Look Who’s Back’ Brings Adolf Hitler to Life in Modern Day

In a politically charged point in our history, it's not uncommon to compare extreme ideologies to fascism and its poster boy Adolf Hitler. This is usually a controversial tactic and pretty much never funny. But Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn talked about a mockumentary on Netflix that might be the exception to the rule.

"The premise of this movie is a filmmaker is out making this really bad film, I think it's about soccer or something, and he's making this really bad, bad film. He works at a television station and he's fired because he's just not making it," Glenn said.

So how exactly can Hitler be funny? Bringing him back to life in modern-day Germany seems to do the trick.

"He's out in this park in Berlin. The park happens to be the part where Hitler's bunker was, and he zooms in on the film, and he sees a guy get up out of the bushes and dust himself off. And it's Adolf Hitler."

Without giving too much away, this filmmaker goes back to the park and finds Hitler and takes him around Germany speaking with the people. They think he's just a character and the "real" Hitler becomes the funniest man in the country.

This is the description of the movie on Netflix:

People begin to think he's a comedian and he becomes the biggest comedian in all of Germany. Until he does one thing wrong: Hitler crosses the line.

"I'm going to just leave it at that," Glenn said. "But you have to watch it because the last 20 minutes, you begin to see us and all of the western world. And that's why it was, you know, obviously that's what it's made for," Glenn said.

The movie, based on a book written in 2012, points a finger at our broken system. It speaks to what Glenn has been warning about for years. That is, things get so bad, people begin to look for someone --- anyone --- who can just stop the crazy and get things done.

"I posted this last night," Glenn said, "And immediately the Trumpeters are like, ‘Oh, you're calling him...' shut up."

While it's not for everyone, the movie provides an insightful commentary on the world today.

"I've kind of got a personal rule that I don't read my movies," Co-host Pat said. "I might break that rule."

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
