Glenn Beck Compares Donald Trump to Hitler

Source: TIME

Conservative pundit Glenn Beck compared Donald Trump to Hitler on Sunday, blasting the Republican front runner for appealing to Americans’ anger for votes.

The right-wing media personality called Trump a “dangerous man” during his appearance Sunday on ABC’s This Week with host George Stephanopoulos. “We all look at Adolf Hitler in 1940. We should look at Adolf Hitler in 1929,” Beck said. “He was a kind of a funny kind of character that said the things people were thinking. Where Donald Trump takes it, I have absolutely no idea. But Donald Trump is a dangerous man with the things that he has been saying.”

Comedian Louis C.K. made the same comparison on Saturday, calling Trump an “insane bigot” while urging voters to stop supporting him. “It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler,” he said. “And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the ’30s. Do you think they saw the s–t coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.”

2. I'm pretty sure Beck meant that as a compliment.

If not Beck has deteriorated further into the insane pit that is Glenn Beck.

6. Exactly what I was thinking.

It's amazing how many of his RW 'parents' are disavowing this child of hatred they have spent decades building, without the slightest bit of self-awareness as to their role in creating him.

8. Godwin's Law strikes again!



Godwin's Law (or Godwin's rule of Nazi analogies) is an Internet adage asserting that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1" —​​that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism.

I laugh my ass off at these republicans. I mean racisim and the whole bully thing is stock and trade of the GOP so it's so funny to hear them call Trump out for stating right out what they have soft pedaled all these years.

15. Trump cannot be totally compared to Hitler.

The Bush family does not support Trump (yet) like they did the NAZIs.

20. I am always a bit skeptical about comparisons to Hitler.

There really is no comparison to the evil of Hitler. One can say plenty about Trump but he is no Hitler. Not even close.
