    Re: Glenn Beck likens Norwegian dead to Hitler youth

    Oh yeah, and I know a lot of Conservatives send their kids to those pro life marches in Washington DC... From what I have heard people say, it's mostly a crash course in indoctrination. Somebody I had a lot of respect for went one year, and complained about how they actually tried to promote a lesson in how to debate people who support abortion rights and that really upset her. She said she didn't want to go there and learn how to debate people, tell them they are nazis, abortion is the holocaust, and abortion in murder. She wanted to actually learn how to help her community lower abortion rates, and they didn't do anything like that.

    I understand that the Labour party youth section has been holding these events on the island for forty years. The participants are all members, most from fifteen to thirty, but a few younger. One of the dead spoke at the party conference last year, and some of the past attendees are now party politicians. There is no question of indoctrination, that idea comes from the fevered fantasies of the rabid right.

    I think he does stir the pot, absolutely. The ratings and attention are a result of him speaking his mind with no filter. That usually happens when people are incredibly blunt, honest and outspoken.
    Or when they're assholes.

    Comparing ANY political camp to the Hitler Youth is utterly abhorrent - especially after said kids were murdered and traumatized by someone of an opposing political viewpoint - because if you didn't join Hitler Youth, you were killed or imprisoned.

    If he wants to make such a callous comparison, he should at least find evidence that any of these TEENAGERS (kids is being used in the sense that they are younger than us) were being forced to attend for fear of their lives, then you could make the comparison.

    But let me ask you this. How often have religious and tea party rallies been compared to nazi indoctrination, here and on other boards, even on tv?

    I'm sure it has happened, but at how many of those did a left-wing shooter murder 70+ people for their political or religious beliefs?

    The Nazis also wore shoes and coats. I guess we're all just like the Nazis...

    Why the hell is Beck so obsessed with Nazis and making Nazi comparisons? OCD perhaps?

    Tea party have openly compared Obama to Hitler, so there really are no victims, just people being disrespectful and ignorant.

    The tea party has been compared to nazis, GW was compared to Hitler, and religious gatherings are compared to indoctrination camps. One side is mud slinging as much as the other.
    It would be nice if everyone could discuss facts, instead of name calling.
    Might be more productive, that's all.

    Discussing facts is a lot to ask of these people... and I am being 100% serious.
