    Norway shooting: Glenn Beck compares dead teenagers to Hitler youth
    Glenn Beck, the leading Right-wing American broadcaster, has prompted outrage after comparing the teenage victims of the Utoya Island massacre to the Hitler Youth.

    Beck's controversial statements have made him one of the most divisive figures in US politics

    By Jon Swaine, New York7:41PM BST 25 Jul 2011662 Comments
    Beck said that the Labour party youth camp on the island, where 68 people were murdered, bore "disturbing" similarities to the Nazi party's notorious juvenile wing.

    Certainly didn't take long for the Trapshooters fringe to come out. Read on or listen: http://www.glennbeck.com/2011/07/25/norway-tragedy-media-blames-u-s-conservatives/

    Your link came up blank, but I am wondering if you are sure this is true, with the source being a left wing yellow rag that hates any and all conservatives.

    simply at face value: national socialist german workers party vs. the norwegian labour party, which represents the (socialist) internationale. it's a pretty simple connection. although i haven't heard the beck version yet

    Mental illness notwithstanding,

    Is this not his voice (that said "Sounds A Little Like The Hitler Youth?")

    If it's not then I'll apologize and say it's phoney (or phony)

    "As the thing started to unfold, and then there was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler Youth or whatever -- I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing. But anyway, so there's this political camp, and some crazy man goes and starts shooting kids."


    well, geez, what did they teach in the Hitler Youth LMAO yeah, these political camps are like the "Hitler Youth or whatever".... he should have hitched a ride on Palin's tour bus on that Bridge to Nowhere

    Oh yeah, "mediamatters" we know how unbiased and truthful that bunch of loons are don't we.

    Did you read the transcript of Beck's statement as posted by RobertT?

    No where in it, does Beck compare the dead childern to Nazi Youth Group.

    I am not supporting Glen Beck, but the story as you reported it is false.

    Who runs political camps for kids? The 9/12 organization. Guess who is involved in it? Take a Wild Guess...

    excerpts (absolutely hilarious):

    TAMPA 9/12 GROUP OFFERS FOUNDING FATHERS SUMMER CAMP ALTERNATIVE FOR KIDS
    Posted on June 15, 2011 at 8:57am by Jonathon M. Seidl Print »Email »

    So what will this camp look like? If you thought boring classroom lecture, think again. How about using candy to symbolize the gold standard and a bubble exercise that teaches about socialism:

    One example at Liberty: Children will win hard, wrapped candies to use as currency for a store, symbolizing the gold standard. On the second day, the “banker” will issue paper money instead. Over time, students will realize their paper money buys less and less, while the candies retain their value.

    Beck was not saying the kids were part of a Hitler Youth Camp, he was asking who would put on such a program for kids.

    Your knowledge of far right groups is greater than mine. I do not support them nor do I pay any attention to them........just like I don't pay attention to far left loons.

    I just wonder why someone would invoke Hitler's or the Nazi's when commenting on a tragic event?

    In any case, his group runs a political camp, much like the one he is questioning in the 9/12 organization.

    A Tampa 9/12 group does not mean the Glenn Beck has anything to do with it. It just means that a group in Tampa is hosting the camp.

    Capulona. Are you here from Germany by way of Argentina?

    I didn't hear the comment, but, you seem to have a hard on for Beck. What happened? Did he strike a nerve to close to home?

    Did you attend the camp in Norway? Tell us, what did you guys learn? Maybe we are behind on the issues.

    The clown that shot the place up said he did it to keep the MUSLIMS out.

    He is a homegrown terrorist over there, that's for sure.

    Apparently, the shooter thought of the victims as being like Hitler youth. That is why he targeted them. The shooter targeted the leftist Norwegian government and these "campers" were a part of that government in much the same way that Hitler youth were a part of the Nazi movement. I think Beck's conclusion was insightful.
