    Beck’s Holocaust comments prompt Fox News meeting - Yahoo! News

    Thoughts USMB? Personally, I think Glenn Beck does overuse mentioning of the Nazis and the Holocaust to the point where it becomes cheapened due to overuse.

    I wonder what the radio and television version of Godwin's Law is. :eusa_think:

    Ok, not sure why all the comments to this thread were moved to a separate thread, but here's my response again...

    Context matters, so throwing a number out there really doesn't mean that much. Beck has discussed the Wilson administration extensively, and referred to their use of propaganda and how that tied in with all those references.

    as a beck watcher/listener, his third reich examples are dead on if you hear them in context.

    It's that darn context thing again. People don't like context. They don't like looking at the actual policies that created the situation. They just want to say "It will never happen again". And then everyone is shocked when it happens again.

    I find it all very fascinating. I like understanding what happened and the whys behind it. Especially so we can avoid it again. I had no clue that the Nazi's learned their propaganda techniques from the Wilson administration. It's very eye opening to say the least.

    Gee, I sure hope Fox doesn't fire Baby Huey, causing him to go on an emotional downward spiral and relapse into substance abuse which might cause his moronic followers to realize what a shitbag he really is.

    Because that would break my heart.

    True, and millions of Americans who want historical truth and how that relates to the present day progressive movement, are listening...
