A few years ago, a wise wit accused Glenn Beck of having “Nazi Tourettes syndrome” and that has proven true again and again. Everything he disagrees with leads inevitably to reopening Auschwitz, it seems, including not letting businesses discriminate against people.
Declaring that “gay activists will boycott, will make it uncomfortable, they’ll smear them, they’ll just ratchet up the hate” against any business owner who refuses to provide services to a same-sex wedding in an attempt to drive them out of business, Beck insisted that everyone just has to “heal our hearts” and realize that religious business owners are not motivated by hate but rather by their faith.
“Let’s stop forcing each other to do things,” Beck begged. “You don’t change anything. That ends up in concentration camps. You just start grinding and grinding and grinding away until you’re in separate worlds and nobody talks to each other and then, whoever has the power, round ’em up and kill ’em because those guys are the problem.”
“That’s how it happens,” he said, which prompted his co-host Stu Burguiere to quip that Beck managed to make it a mere fourteen minutes into the radio show today before he started warning about people being rounded up and locked away in concentration camps.
Well of course. Because I think we all remember that the first thing Adolf Hitler did when he took power was to pass the German Civil Rights Act and outlaw discrimination. That’s what they teach at Billy Bob’s Bait Shop and History School, where Beck graduated from.
