Glenn Beck is still working hard:
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.
Beck, a multimillionaire darling of the Tea Party movement, said on his nationally-syndicated radio show: "There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler youth. I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing."
Then is Beck suggesting that the shooter did a good deed?
I really found his comments disturbing when I first heard them. Particularly, when you consider the history between European labor parties and the Nazi party.
A few days later...after thinking about it, I realize how illustrative this comment is about Beck's complete lack of historical content or rational thinking for that matter.
I guess it would depend on what the 16-22 year olds were being taught in this youth camp.
We can assume that they were not receiving firearms training.
The camp has been described as a sort of nomenklatura finishing school, leadership training for the next generation of high level bureaucrats and functionaries.
This was no mistake. If the shooter just wanted to create a big body count, he could have gone anywhere.
This was something else -- a strike right at the heart of the government. A successful mass-assassination of the children of the ruling class.
Amazing that it happened.
Anonymous seems to be riding "shotgun" for Beck with this:
"This was something else -- a strike right at the heart of the government. A successful mass-assassination of the children of the ruling class. "
What else does this "Die-Namic Duo" have in mind?
