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."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

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.
