Beck Hits a New Godwin Low

In 2009 the USDA put out a children’s book about healthy eating called The Two-Bite Club that encourages them to eat at least two bites of food from the different food groups so they get balanced nutrition. In his morning staff meeting, Beck whips out an anti-Jewish Nazi propaganda book and says it’s just like the USDA’s book. As Lewis Black so aptly noted, Beck has Nazi Tourette’s. Absolutely everything reminds him of the Nazis. Except actual Nazis.

    You know who else saw Nazis everywhere he looked?

    Is Beck completely blind to content, or does he just think the content doesn’t matter? I mean, if he really just has a problem with government propaganda, he must hate the pledge of allegiance, right?

  • skinnercitycyclist

    Beck needs to go back to Sarcasm 101. He just does not seem to have the knack.

    ‘Cause when someone mentions Hitler, the first thing that pops into my mind is the Nazi campaign to make everyone eat healthy.

    Here’s an idea: World War II was an example of what happens when you have armies raised and equipped by Governments.

    Therefore it’s a really bad idea for our Government to raise and equip an army.

    Beck’s right. Hitler published things. Governments shouldn’t publish things.

    Well… he was a vegetarian.

    At the start of the video Beck says he knows nothing about the American book (The Two Bite Club) but when it is finally explained to him, he suddenly “remembers” that he has a German anti-Jewish book, which he can use to portray Obama as a politician using Nazi propaganda techniques.

    I think it worked in reverse. I think his research staff found the anti-Jewish book and Beck sent them off to look for an American book which would enable him to draw a parallel between Obama and the Nazis.

    His researchers couldn’t find anything specific, so Beck said, “Give me what ever you’ve found – it doesn’t matter what it is – and I’ll just pretend that parallels exist.”

    They gave him “The Two Bite Club” (and Beck probably said, “You’ll have to better than this in the future, if you want to keep your jobs here.”)

    I doubt if Beck cares if it makes any sense.

    Much of his content, in fact, doesn’t make any sense. And some of it is complete fabrications.

    Oddly enough, according to internet ratings service, Alexa, Beck’s website is the 566.6 most popular worldwide and higher than that in the USA.

    Just checked Alexa again.

    Both this food book and “Mein Kampf” were first published in the month of May. Coincidence?(*1)

     

    *1. Could be true. Fact pulled from ass. Your mileage may vary. Also, both were first published after Obama took office. Coincidence?(*2)

    *2. Could be true. Fact pulled from ass. Your mileage may vary.

    I fear that this point may fall prey to Godwin’s law in it’s own right… but isn’t it funny how, people use Nazi to talk about people in the same way that the Nazi’s spoke about Jewish people?

    In the past, when you wanted to whip up people’s fears about a particular group of people, you had to accuse them of poisoning wells, or of stealing your children to use their blood in religious rituals. Now all you have to do is say, “yeah, that’s exactly what the Nazi’s did!”

    I can’t help feeling that saying, “that’s what Nazis would do,” in order to spread fear, hatred, and mistrust of particular… is what Nazis would do.

  • Athywren

    Hmm… too busy worrying about accusing myself of being a Nazi to notice bad spelling and grammar. Now that’s exactly what a Nazi would do!

  • Nick Gotts

    Well… he [Hitler] was a vegetarian. – montanto

    Actually, there’s considerable controversy about that. The balance of evidence seems to be that he self-identified as one, but sometimes ate processed meat products (ham, sausages).

    It’s astounding how the right-wing has redefined the Nazis as people who wanted you to eat right and not smoke cigarettes. The militarism, racism, and nationalism have been purged from memory.

    Therefore it’s a really bad idea for our Government to raise and equip an army.

    Believe it or not, this is an argument actually used by certain species of libertarian. Governments are bad because Hitler-Stalin.

    Just another peek into the chamber of horrors resident between Beck’s ears

    Oh, by the way–please correct me if I am wrong–wasn’t a persistent theme of Hitler’s speeches the necessity of the struggle to “take our country back from those would destroy it”–if the shoe fits, Glennie….

  • http://www.pandasthumb.org Area Man

    …wasn’t a persistent theme of Hitler’s speeches the necessity of the struggle to “take our country back from those would destroy it”

    Yes, the amazing thing about the Nazis is how they consistently viewed themselves as victims who were being persecuted by the Jews. Even very late into the war. And they really believed it.

    Today’s wingnuts do something similar by constantly viewing themselves as society’s victims, in spite of being its most privileged members.

    Modus – “Also, both were first published after Obama took office. ”

    Have you been playing with Obama’s Time Machine & Mind Control Device™ again?!?
