On his Tuesday Radio Show, Glenn Beck indirectly defended his controversial comment that the Norwegian camp attacked by right-wing extremist Anders Breivik reminded him of a Hitler Youth site.
Beck said the camp "sounds a little like the Hitler Youth. I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing."
He continued on a tirade, warning that there would be horrible consequences due to the rise of what he called the "evil" strain of Islam in Europe. According to Beck, Islam is "squeezing the neck" of the continent and "multiculturalism is killing Europe."
Beck drew scores of complaints on Monday after his comments hit the Web. While he did not mention the comment directly on Tuesday, he discussed his thoughts on a book about the early days of Nazi Germany that he is currently reading.
He went on to say, "If we're living in a society where we can't say X in the same paragraph as Y and not be told we are comparing it...we are going to be a society of gas chambers," he screamed. "If you can't have a logical conversation...the question is, does this country bypass the mainstream media faster than it's destroyed. I'm betting yes. It's called GBTV."
Beck then went on to list comparisons between Hitler's Germany and Obama's America.
Torbjorn Eriksen, the former press secretary to Norway's prime minister, said the remark was a "new low."
"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," Eriksen told The Daily Telegraph. "Glenn Beck's comments are ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful."
