Glenn Beck is sorry for all of this. Except, of course, it isn’t.
Just four years ago, the conservative media mogul made common cause with liberal celebrities for their mutual contempt for Donald Trump, apologizing for demonizing the left and making it his mission to bring Trump down. Woke Glenn Beck even became a meme at one point.
Eventually, Beck jumped aboard the Trump train. And along the way, he remembered that he first became famous for throwing conspiratorial diatribes in which he compared everything to the Holocaust.
In a Tuesday appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tonightBeck once again invoked the Holocaust, this time complaining about the crackdown by social media platforms and tech companies against President Donald Trump and the far-right in the wake of the week’s insurgency riot last.
“We made one of the biggest mistakes of the 20th century by taking our own citizens and listening to this, confiscating their wealth, making sure they couldn’t work, shutting them down, then putting them in camps, ”Beck first noted. making an analogy with the Japanese internment during the Second World War
Telling host Tucker Carlson that “this is the road we’re on again,” the Fox News star then directly likened the social media bans to what the Nazis did to Jews.
“It’s like the Germans with the Jews behind the wall,” Beck said. “They would put them in the ghetto. It’s the digital ghetto. “
“’You can talk as much as you want, Jews, do whatever you want behind the wall.’ It doesn’t make sense, ”he added. “And that’s where we are. This is where millions of Americans will be. “
Perhaps after realizing the comparison he just made on live TV, Beck offered a quick warning and claimed he was only issuing a warning about what could potentially lie ahead.
“Again, not to compare him to the Germans,” Beck concluded. “It’s not about doing anything other than warning if you don’t stand up for free speech, you will also be the one who loses it.”
