Recently, Glenn Beck has claimed to be outraged that a new Arizona immigration law that requires people to carry proof of citizenship is being compared to Nazi Germany. Comedy Central’s Lewis Black is even more outraged, since he believes Beck is a hypocrite.
Last month on his Fox News show, Beck attacked opponents of the controversial Arizona law for using such imagery: “You’re out of your mind. Are you comparing the systematic, cold-blood extermination of millions of Jews to America making sure that people are here legally? Arizona sure is putting the “az” in Nazi, aren’t they?”
“Glenn Beck is offended!” announced Black Tuesday night. “Glenn Beck thinks playing the Nazi card is going too far. Glenn Beck. this is a guy who uses more Swastika props and video of the Nuremberg rallies than the History Channel.”
Beck once compared concerns about global warming to Nazi Germany’s persecution of Jews. “That was Hitler’s plan– his enemy: the Jew. Al Gore’s enemy, the U.N.’s enemy: global warming,” Beck said on his radio program April 30, 2007.
