Not That It’s Surprising or Anything

July 27th, 2011

Glenn Beck, in a stomach-churning segment (when aren’t they?), comments on the Norway terror attack by Anders Behring Breivik.

In a short period of time, he equates the children killed in the attacks as a kind of “Hitler Youth” and manages to essential agree with the killer’s ideology–in fact, he boasts that he was sending out the same message himself, last fall.

As the thing started to unfold, and then there was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler Youth or whatever — I mean, who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics? Disturbing. But anyway, so there’s this political camp, and some crazy man goes and starts shooting kids. …

… Last fall, I said that Europe is going to go into financial trouble, and it’s also going to go into problems with radical Islam, because the cities are going to be overrun … they [Muslims] are squeezing the neck of Europe. And that’s what Geert Wilders has been saying: that political correctness and multiculturalism is killing Europe, and he’s right. And, if you look at multiculturalism and you’re still for it, well, you’d better look whose company you’re in.“

Essentially, after smearing the victims as if they were the product of some kind of nefarious communist/fascist brainwashing operation (many have pointed out that Beck’s own 9/12 Project hosts similar political camps for youth), he then goes off on saying that Europe is being destroyed by Muslims using Europe’s own political correctness and multiculturalism as the means of doing so.

That is pretty much exactly what Breivik (who also references Geert Wilders repeatedly) wrote, many times over, in his manifesto:

While formal protection of free speech is important, social and informal censorship are equally challenging. At the end of the day, we will also have to shed the straightjackets of multiculturalism and Political Correctness if our democratic system is to survive Islamic challenges as well as other attacks on our freedoms. …

Multiculturalism (cultural Marxism/political correctness), as you might know, is the root cause of the ongoing Islamisation of Europe which has resulted in the ongoing Islamic colonisation of Europe through demographic warfare (facilitated by our own leaders). …

One of the foundational problems in Europe today is that the multiculturalists and the suicidal humanists lie to everyone to preserve comfortable illusions. Political correctness is a mandatory lie in European societies. …

There must be at least one major media company that has the courage to operate outside the boundaries of political correctness and is bold enough to tell people the truth about multiculturalism, the ongoing Islamisation and the individuals responsible.

Is Glenn Beck blind to whose company he is in?

To be honest, I am not sure exactly what Beck is proud of here. He seems to be taking credit for predicting that multiculturalism and Islam would be problems in Europe–but those issues are not the problem in Norway right now. Muslims did not bomb Oslo’s Government Building. Multiculturalism did not gun down dozens of men, women, children. Nor were they even the proximate cause.

The only one responsible was someone who would have felt very much at home in Glenn Beck’s audience. The killer was someone who believed what Beck himself is spewing.
