Oh, come on

Look, I love bashing on Glenn Beck as much as the next person. But this one really takes the cake.

On his radio show today, Glenn Beck heralded and promoted the work of Nazi sympathizer Elizabeth Dilling, who spoke at rallies hosted by the leading American Nazi group and praised Hitler. Today, Dilling is heralded by White Supremacists and White Aryans who revere her “fearless” work against Jewish people.

…Dilling has a long history of rabid anti-Semitism, such as calling President Eisenhower “Ike the Kike” and labeling President Kennedy’s New Frontier program the “Jew frontier.”

…This isn’t just beyond the pale — it’s probably the most significant major-media endorsement of American fascist ideology since the 1930s.

I don’t even have the words to describe how angry this makes me. It’d be one thing if he was just some crazy nut job with a website, but the fact that he’s on the goddamn radio talking about this shit. Further, I find it totally ironic that he would accuse the current government of fascism and all that, only to then promote and publicize it.

But what I find most amazing is that he gets away with this. Every single day I read about the latest crazy thing that Beck has done so it all sort of blends together, but come on – how is this one not the worst ever?
