Glenn Beck is going to Auschwitz

Filed under: Holocaust, TV shows — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 8:12 am

Yesterday, Glenn Beck announced that his last TV show will be on June 30, 2011. Then he will be going to Poland to visit Auschwitz.   He said that Auschwitz “is the last place on earth” that he wants to go. He wants to go to Red Square; he wants to go to England. Auschwitz is not on his list but he’s going there because he “knows the story” and he “knows it’s true.”

Has Glenn Beck’s life been threatened?  Has “Spooky Dude” ordered a hit on him?  Months ago, I wrote on my blog here “Is Glenn Beck Trying to Get Himself Killed?” After years of insulting the Jews, Glenn Beck has taken a 180 degree turn and he is now peddling “Stand with Israel” banners.

On yesterday’s show, Beck compared himself to Oskar Schindler. He pointed out that Schindler “didn’t get it at first.”  But then Schindler “saw the light” and he “put his life on the line to save the Jews.”  Now it seems that Glenn Beck is following in Schindler’s footsteps.  He is going to save Israel from the “Freedom for Palestine” people; the “Israeli occupation” is a LIE, according to Beck.  Why the concern over the “plight of the Palestinians?”  It is Israel that is in danger from Hamas and Hezbollah.

Beck cried more than John Boehner as he described how he was overwhelmed by the movie Schindler’s List. He said that he “was weeping at the end” and he couldn’t move.  He had to be escorted out of the theater.  He had been totaled out by the ending of the movie when Schindler’s Jews present him with a ring engraved with a line from the Talmud: “He who saves a single life, saves the world.”

Beck mentioned that he also saw the movie Life is Beautiful.  Then he said, regarding these two movies, “Here’s what hits you so hard — they are true.”  It’s been years since these movies came out, but Glenn Beck is just now “getting it” and he’s going to Auschwitz.  He’s never been to England, and he would like to see the pyramids in Egypt, but he’s going to Auschwitz instead.  Did he cut a deal with the Jews?

Beck’s show lost more than 300 advertisers over the years, which probably led to his show being taken off the air. But there is one ad that has been played many times — the one about the elderly Holocaust survivors who are now starving in Siberia.  Yesterday, the ad was shown again, and I noticed the part where the tattoo on the arm of one of the Jews is shown.  That part had been cut out, but now it’s back.  The tattoo starts with an A, followed by several numbers.  This indicates that the person with this identification number arrived at Auschwitz in 1944 when the Hungarian Jews were deported.

Beck’s show on Wednesday laid the groundwork for the theme of Thursday’s show.  On Wednesday’s show, Beck told about how the Jews have been “oppressed” since the year 175 BC when the King of Syria outlawed circumcision.  Now by an “amazing coincidence” it is starting all over again in San Francisco where a ban on circumcision has been proposed.

On Wednesday, Beck went through a long list of countries that had expelled the Jews over the years; he mentioned around 12 of the 82 times that the Jews were expelled and then said that the Jews had been “kicked out of every single country in the world.”  He was not blaming the Jews — it is the rest of the world that is at fault.  But don’t worry; Glenn Beck is going to save Israel.


  1. Very nice write-up. I absolutely love this site.
    Stick with it!

    Yeah, “approximately”. Like 5-7 million.
    Can we see the complete list? I mean, with the names and birth certificates and causes of death, etc?
    Thank you in advance.

    • There is no list of names because the Nazis did not register the names of the people who were gassed, so there are no records of the names. Only the names of people who were registered into the camps were recorded. It is impossible to trace people because lots of people had identical names. Others changed their names into something that was easier to pronounce. Especially, the survivors who came to America changed their names because Americans could not pronounce Polish and Czech names. The International Tracing Service is still finding long lost people who changed their names.

      The death records from the camps have names and causes of death, but the Nazis did not keep death records for those who were gassed. In the very last days of the war, people were dying so fast in the typhus epidemic that it was impossible to record their deaths. The Soviet Union confiscated some of the records and they have never been released. For example, the records from the Ravensbruck camp and the Sachsenhausen camp have never been released.

  3. I live in a Constitutional Republic, not in “rzeczpospolita” and , thus enjoy “Freedom of Speech”.
    That means: I can deny anything on my own volition at any given time. I can deny “evolution theory” of Charles Darwin (and move to rural Kentucky after that), or I can deny the sainthood of the pope John Paul II. I can deny “holocaust”, or I can deny resurrection and consequent transfiguration of Jesus Christ. Of course, I would have to present my arguments and proofs available to me. Somehow, it appears that the stories of “evolution” or “sainthood of the popes” or even resurrection of Jesus are not causing the wars of aggression, or genocide of indigenous people of Palestine. But, the “holocaust” story really does! That is why this story warranted my long time interest.
    “Robert”, you called me a “Holocaust Denier”? Okay. And what can you do about it? Maybe, you will contact your local “Beitar” office? Oh, you can ask your government of “rzeczpospolita” for my extradition to Poland for a show trial for denying “holofaux”. Bring it on! You think, I am afraid of you, or your polish government? Do you think I am afraid of the poles or jews? You gotta be kidding me!
    All fears are long gone! Deal with it!

  4. Your favorite Martin Gilbert wrote 12 years old, not 16.
    “The dead included one professional military officer, one journalist, two Polish-American citizens and a 12-year old boy.[1][5]” Are you blind or pretend to be one?

    Comment by Gasan — June 7, 2011 @ 2:52 pm

  5. Robert,

    may i suggest the book “Orphans of Versailles” by Robert Blanke for starters? in it, you will find documented evidence of crimes and misdeeds, political as well as physical, committed against the Germans in Poland during the years 1918-1939. It should be noted that were several categories of Germans in Poland during those times: former “Reichsdeutsche” from territories transferred to Poland as the result of Versailles and/or League of Nations plebiscite (Posen, Westpreussen, Oberschlesien) and “Volksdeutsche” who had settled in previous Czarist Poland, most notably in Lodz.
    Another book which touches upon prewar German-Polish relations is Pat Buchanan’s fantastic work “Churchill, Hitler, and the Unnecessary War”.

    Finally, Carl Tighe’s book “Gdansk/Danzig” can be useful in establishing and understanding national identity in the region from inception through 1945…

    I must say I find Robert’s opinions as a self described “ethnic German from Poland” to be nothing short of shocking, however not surprising. 70-odd years of anti-German propaganda is likely to turn anyone into the self-hating German Robert clearly is.

    Comment by schlageter — June 7, 2011 @ 6:01 am

    • Buchanan knows better than me and is fantastic while I’m so self hating (because I’m Hitler obviously reincarnated). Hey, can I say about, you know, my country AND family? So, somehow, my German family had no problems with Poles before WWII. Between Upper Silesia and Malopolska for generations, brought there by Katherine the Great. Cool story? Certainly.

      Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 6:39 am

      • personally, i think Buchanan does know better than you. the ability to interpret wider events strategically, coupled with documentary eveidence and 1st person accounts trumps your personal little anecdotes how everyone on your street got along fine.

        Comment by schlageter — June 7, 2011 @ 7:12 am

        • Tell me specifically, what did Buchanan write in his book that is factually incorrect? lets stick to facts instead of personal anecdotes.

          Comment by schlageter — June 7, 2011 @ 1:55 pm

  6. Good research, Gasan. It’s best not to believe stories told by Poles, which is the origin of most of the “brutal occupation” of the Poles by the Germans comes from. Martin Gilbert, as you say, will put any and every accusations against the Germans in his books … he has apparently never heard an atrocity story by a “witness” that he didn’t believe. No questions asked.

    Comment by Skeptic — June 6, 2011 @ 3:26 pm

    • As, so this is the kind of “research” you people do, then pat each other on their backs. Awesome! Carry on, Kameraden.

      Btw, among the victims of Wawer massacre was even an ethnic German. His name was Daniel Gering, a 40 years old Evangelical bank clerk. He was given a chance to say he’s a German and to be let go but he said “I am a Pole” (because he was “massively brainwashed”, of course) and so he was shot, too.

      Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 4:40 am

      • And the American citizens were the brothers Jan and Zygmunt Szczygieł. They were taken from the house at Powszechna 6. Yes, they came to their family for Christmas. The USA of course was back then at peace with Germany.

        Also murdered was one ethnic Russian (Orthodox Christian) and 11 Jews. The 16 year old was Andrzej Białowiejski, a Catholic.

        They were shot by Orpos with submachine guns, except for the German-speaking barman (former tax clerk) Antoni Bartoszek, who was earlier publicily hanged from the chimney of his restaurant and his children were forced to watch (his wife Zofia was shot and wounded by the bandits and was in hospital) and left to hang for 2 days.

        But then again, I’m talking to Holocaust deniers, so I’m probably wasting my time.

        Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 5:23 am

  7. I forgot to mention something regarding the article about Wawer massacre.
    Robert mentioned that two US citizens were executed among victims. The article, written by Mariusz Jarosiński, does not list any US citizens being executed. The author stated that several visitors were arrested, those who came to spend Christmas with their families. It does not say where they came from, or whether they were citizens of the US. Were those visitors from the other parts of Poland, or maybe other European countries. They could be from other American countries, than USA. Uruguay, Argentina or Brazil, just to name a few. Poland was defeated three months prior to Christmas of 1939. Apparently, all those travelers from other countries were given a legal visitor’s pass to enter occupied Poland. Only German Authorities could accommodate them with legal entry in Poland. Apparently, Robert has never thought about it.
    The article indicates that several of them were arrested in the raid, but failed to verify; that those outsiders were indeed executed. What if they were released? Where this story of two slain US citizens came from?
    From here:
    “The dead included one professional military officer, one journalist, two Polish-American citizens and a 12-year old boy.[1][5] ”
    Martin Gilbert, The Second World War: A Complete History.
    Martin Gilbert… “Sir” Martin John Gilbert, a notorious career liar and pseudo-historian. How did that happen, that Gilbert knows about a 12-year old boy being executed in Wawer, while Mariusz Jarosiński and “Robert” don’t, or forgot to mention?

    Comment by Gasan — June 5, 2011 @ 9:01 pm

    • Ladies and Gentlemen! We have our first blog troll! Does anyone seriously believe that “Robert” is really a “ethnic German” from Poland? If so, his opinions position him in about the .oooo1 percentile of “volksdeutsche” who have nothing but unabashed love for the wonderful peace-loving Polish Peoples Republic. Of course, “Robert” is a Polish nationalist troll who has managed to find himself banned from feldgrau and axishistory among other places. Nothing wrong with Polish nationalism, mind you. Everyone is entitled to a Jedwabne or Schwientochwitz every now and again…

      Comment by blair ericson — June 7, 2011 @ 11:18 am

  8. @ Robert,

    it is clearly evident by your statements that you are a victim of the massive brainwashing that came from a) living in Poland and especially b) being a German. I’m sure you’ve always been led to believe that Poland was a flourishing multi-ethnic democracy prior to WW2, until a madman bent on taking over the whole wide world made it his unprovoked target. Of course you’ve never been exposed to other viewpoints or accounts from the Germans orphaned by Versailles, or the will and desire of the citizenry of Danzig, 96% German, to rejoin the Reich–a view held by the League of Nations commissioner for the city and by the British Prime Minister himself.
    No, better to keep with the conventional wisdom that celebrates some 50+ million dead (on top of THE Six Million, of course) and has resulted in the multi-culti cesspool we now inhabit.
    I mean, imagine if the peace-loving Polish dictator, er, I mean, president, and his Britiush and French masters had met the Fuhrer’s terms and let the Germans of Danzig rejoin their country….would so many have died? no please, dont go there Robert.

    Comment by schlageter — June 5, 2011 @ 5:02 pm

    • Well, well, a clever and very intelligent commenter has joined us. At least I have never seen anything by “schlageter” before. What an excellent message to Robert; much better than anything I would have come up with.

      Welcome schlageter. Hope to see more of your comments.

      Comment by Skeptic — June 5, 2011 @ 8:40 pm

    • Oh, so it was the reason. Because the German invasion totally stopped after occupying the Free City of Danzig (althrough securing the small Polish military depot at Westerplatte took them 7 days), or even in the face of the British and French ultimatum to stop advanicing on Warsaw.

      And should I even remind you Danzing was not belonging to Poland in 1939 at all, with no Polish forces in the city streets (not even paramilitary, as opposed to the SA- and SS-men), had a direct border with the Reich, and was actually openly ruled by the NSDAP anyway?

      Germany left the LoN in 1933, so what it has to with anything? Anyway good job Hitler, because Gdansk is now so German. Only it was never just about it. But they lost everything else, too. Some “1000-Year Reich”.

      “British masters”, haha. British were not even Polish allies at all for most part of the interwar period, not even in the war against the Bolsheviks, were even opposed to the very idea of Polish state at first (but Wilson trumped them easily). You Holocaust deniers are just so cute, please write more!

      Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 4:20 am

      • oh so now examining the causes of the German-Polish war constitutes Holocaust denial? Robert, you are truly a piece of work. if as you say Danzig had zero influence or interest from Poland, then why would Poland not agree to the fundamental right of self-determination of the overwhelming majority of its citizens to rejoin their fellow Germans in the Reich?

        Polish intransigence bolstered by the “blank checque” from Britain and France led directly to world war.

        Comment by schlageter — June 7, 2011 @ 7:10 am

      • “Everyone who has studied the history of World War II without bias knows that the war began because of Poland’s refusal to satisfy Germany’s claims,” he writes.

        Kovalyov called the demands “quite reasonable.”

        Is this man a denier too? So I can understand that Germany wasn’t innocent, but can you say Poland was entirely innocent also?

  9. When he first arrived on the scene, I had a brief flicker of hope that Glenn was someone who was unafraid to draw out the consistencies and coincidences amongst all the groups and individuals he felt were bringing irrepairable harm to our country and our culture. However, realist that i am, i knew it was only a matter of time before he would come too close to touching the 3rd Rail and starting singing a different tune.
    Interesting how Mr “Connect the Dots” is unable to see the common thread binding, the $PLC, ADL, ACLU, ACORN, NY Times, etc etc etc, not to mention his individual targets Lerner, Piven, The Rathke bros, Marx, Engels, Lenin, Barney Frank, Weiner, Wasserman Schultz, Rahm, etc etc.
    Sadly, he can only be viewed as a Useful Idiot…

    Comment by schlageter — June 5, 2011 @ 4:52 pm

  10. How interesting!
    Robert sent the link to an article in Polish and did not bother to translate: what is it all about. Never mind, I will try my best. Here is the story:
    On December 27, 1939 two Polish career criminals Marian Prasuła and Stanisław Dąbek miraculously escaped from maximum security prison “Swięty Krzyrz” (Holy Cross). It is like escaping from Alcatraz or Sing Sing.
    In one day, they have travelled 180 km and arrived to Wawer, eastern suburb of Warsaw. Instead of keeping low profile, Prasuła and Dąbek walk into the local restaurant and shot two non-commissioned officers from “538 batalionu budowlanego” i.e. German construction troopers. The reason for this shooting was is not addressed in the article.
    Those units are not always even issued the firearms. The article does not explain, why two high profile criminals would shoot German construction troopers at the restaurant? This is not what the career criminals are know for. After they disappeared the commander of Warsaw Police Major-General Max Daume arrested around 120 men, conducted swift military tribunal and executed 114 of them. The caption of the picture reads, that Daume was SS-Standartenführer, even though he does not wear SS uniform or insignia.
    This story is not complete and one-sided. The tale of two criminals involved, is more than questionable.
    Apparently, the real story was somewhat different than presented by modern Polish historians.
    The names for two notorious “jailbirds” were used as an excuse to cover up killing of two German officers.

    Comment by Gasan — June 5, 2011 @ 1:03 pm

    • And here I’m talking to a Holocaust denier correcting him like if I’d ever got some reason into his head, but hey.

      They didn’t escape “on December 27, 1939”, they escaped (or were released, no one knows, it was chaos) during the German invasion in September.

      Anyway the prison was hardly anything like “Alcatraz or Sing Sing”, actually it was rather small and looked like this: (a former monastery).

      “The reason for the shooting” (of 2 German soldiers accompanying a Polish police officer Rozwadowski, who was wounded) was they were wanted for their earlier killing a Polish policeman and the restaurant’s owner called the police (later he was executed by hanging – I mean, the owner).

      Daume was not “commander of Warsaw Police” but the commander of an Orpo unit based there (31. Polizei-Regiment Warschau).

      And so on.

      Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 2:44 am

      • And “commander of Warsaw Police” at the time was of course the SSPF Warschau, Paul Moder.

        Seriously, “Gasan”, who are you to talk crap about Martin Gilbert? Where can I see some books of yours? Because you know, I need some good laugh.

        Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 4:54 am

    • Oh, and of course “he does not wear SS uniform or insignia” because he was serving in the f-g Orpo.

      You Holocaust deniers are such a masters of WWII history. Unlike Martin Gilbert, “a notorious career liar and pseudo-historian”!

      Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 8:55 am

      • “Holocaust denier” is not a term that should be used to insult someone in an argument about military uniforms. This is a serious charge which carries a prison term of up to 20 years in Austria and up to 5 years in other countries. Everyone is not a walking encyclopedia like you are. Holocaust denial does not mean expressing a difference of opinion on trivial matters about the history of World War II. Calling someone a “Holocaust denier” could get that person sent to prison, or even killed. It is not a term that should be bandied about.

        Comment by furtherglory — June 7, 2011 @ 9:14 am

        • What is your definition of Holocaust denial?

          According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum web site, “The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.”

          Note the word “approximately.” This means that you can go as low as 5 million, but anything below that might land you in prison in 14 countries. Also note that it is not mentioned that Adolf Hitler gave the order to kill the Jews. This is actually part of the required belief, as David Irving found out when Deborah Lipstadt labeled him a “Holocaust denier” for writing IN A FOOTNOTE that Hitler did not know about the Holocaust until 1943.

          It is my belief that it is not against the law in 14 countries to dispute something written by Martin Gilbert.

          It is my opinion that failure to agree with every tiny insignificant detail of what happened in World War II is not a criminal offense, and you should think twice about calling everyone who does not agree with you a “Holocaust denier.”

          Comment by furtherglory — June 7, 2011 @ 10:39 am

          • You can read about the murder of Holocaust denier Dariusz Ratajczak at

            That’s why I wrote that a Holocaust denier could be “even killed.” Numerous Holocaust deniers have been beaten up so badly that they had to be hospitalized. There is a web site that shows photos of the bloody faces of Holocaust deniers who were beaten to a pulp. That is why you should not call someone a “Holocaust denier.”

        Comment by Gasan — June 7, 2011 @ 2:44 pm

  11. I’m an ethnic German from Poland and I seriously think you should find another hobby (not necesserily another genocide to deny) and really re-think your worldview.

    My grandpa fought in the Heer as a conscript (“or else”), then spent a time in a former German camp as a POW doing forced labor (and there got assigned to work with poisonous materials in a chemical factory for a prank he did on a Russian female medical officer, stealing her boots), and according to my dad he still would not shut up how he hated Hitler, the SS, etc. I never knew him because he died of cancer before I was born. When my dad watches WWII documentaries about German army he’s always very emotional about how so many “boys” lives were wasted for no reason at all.

    His older brother was a Polish soldier during the September Campaign, guess what, he didn’t “advance on Berlin”, they were severely outnumbered and totally outgunned, they were positioned largely on the long borders everwyhere in a strategic blunder to defend everything instead of shortening the lines, but I guess in your world Poland would invade Germany with just 800 light tanks (against German 2,700 including many medium) and 210 bombers (mostly very small).

    Guess I don’t have any personal story to share with you about what your friends call “the holo” and you love to mock too. But hey, not that I’d convince you even if I had.

    But about the question of legality of “reprisals”, I’d like to quote Crimes Against Humanity in International Criminal Law:

    “The uncertianity surrounding the law of belligerent reprisals provided a fertile ground for the large-scale use of reprisals during World War II. Two possible norms in regard ro beliigerent reprisals existed at the outset of World War II: that belligerent reprisals may not violate humanitarian norms, and that the requirement of proportionality must be met.”

    The Germans, however, totally violated these norms from the very beginning. In the Wawer massacre in December 1939, for example, the Orpo police murdered more than 100 random civilians (including 2 visiting American citizens) just because two wanted bandits (criminal convicts who escaped from a prison in the chaos of invasion) killed 2 German soldiers and wounded a Polish policeman (you know, one of these you thought were “Polish Waffen-SS” and what not) in a random encounter.

    All this while making a HUGE propaganda fuss (“Bloody Sunday”) over the summary executions of suspected German armed infiltrators and insurgents (wearing civilian clothes and firing from civilian buildings) in Bydgoszcz (Bromberg), and responding with MASSIVE counter-reprisals against the general Polish and Jewish population, resulting in the deaths of thousands. So much for “just following the Hague conventions”, and hey, no “victors’ justice” here, not at all.

    Comment by Robert — June 5, 2011 @ 2:10 am

    • There were no Polish killings of Germans in Poland “before the Germans invaded”. There were such killings only during and after the war – and just as the Polish killings of Jews or Ukrainians (Ukrainians were also repressed/opressed before the war, but not Germans, and Jews were discriminated, but not Germans).

      Oh, and when I was talking about Polish “light tanks”, I was talking about largely stuff like this:

      The one in the corner a version armed with a small autocannon, but most of them had only a heavy machinegun – 2-men crew, no turret, the armor that could barely stop small arms fire – basically something like a better armed Bren Carrier with a roof. The real tanks were just a few hundred, all light, some of them remembring WWI (FT-17s) – “let’s drive on Berlin”, eh?

      Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 3:00 am

      • The discrimination of Jews was not official (by members of society, not by government), and mostly in the eastern Poland (especially in rural areas).

        Officially, there were Jews in the parliament and the government, Jewish officers and chaplains in the military (including the Chief Rabbi of the Polish Army Major Baruch Steinberg who was captured and murdered by the Soviets), etc.

        Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 3:10 am

    • And what took place in Poland after WWII was an act of ethnic cleansing (through concentration and deportation of several nationalities) but not really genocide. Just like the German deportations of Poles from the annexed territories duing the war were not genocidal – but the Einsatzgruppen activities were.

      It’s also popular for local historians to research it now, and many really grim stories emerged and were widely reported, for example this story:,75480,5293174,Mlyn_do_mielenia_ludzi.html is very well known now. And nobody is even really disputing how bad things happened.

      Comment by Robert — June 7, 2011 @ 3:32 am

  12. “All of the major newspapers, news magazines and TV news coverage in America is slanted towards liberals, but the liberals are offended if anyone points this out.”

    I don’t consider myself a liberal: kind of middle of the road, but even I can see that your statement is painted with a very wide brush, and is relative to your subjective viewpoint. As is my reply to your statement. I think the news outlets follow the money more than any political concern; careful not to shoot themselves in the foot reporting anything that would hurt the pocket book. I may be wrong — the view from the cheap seats can be fuzzy.

    Comment by John Doe — June 4, 2011 @ 6:41 pm

  13. I have read a brilliant article by late Joseph Sobran.
    It indeed raised the questions such as: “What is anti-semitism”? and “How it was defined?”
    The word anti-Semitic functions like the word anti-Soviet. Being undefined, it’s unfalsifiable. Loose charges of “anti-Semitism” are common, but nobody suffers any penalty for making them, since what is unfalsifiable can never be shown to be false. I once read an article in a Jewish magazine that called the first Star Wars movie “anti- Semitic.” I was amazed, but I couldn’t prove the contrary. Who could? And of course people in public life — and often in private life — fear incurring the label, however guiltless they may be.
    Robert would probably unable to explain, what did he find in this website, he calls “moderate antisemitism”
    Is it “anti-semitic” to criticize Israel and it’s foreign and domestic policies, which are acts of aggression and unspeakable racism at home? Is it “anti-semitic” to object Israeli’s interference in our foreign policy and pushing the United States into another war, this time with Iran?
    Nobody denies the fact that certain ethnic, political, religious groups, as well as some sexual minorities, were harshly persecuted in National Socialist Germany. Maybe Robert knows and could share with us his knowledge of how many jews were persecuted in Germany, not for being “jews”, but for being communists. homosexuals and more common, bandits, felons and swindlers?
    As far as Holocaust denial.
    I am still trying to find out, why in the World, this ancient-Greek word was brought into circulation to describe the events of the middle to twentieth century? This makes absolutely zero sense to me!
    Okay, let’s not bother with terminology. Nobody dares to deny anything and everyone should believe the stories of swallowing diamonds on the daily basis, miraculous escapes from gas chambers and other thousands of unbelievable and impossible stories. Everyone must believe in the stories, that defy laws of physics and nature, known to modern men. And of you don’t believe in those stories or question the validity of those claims, you are automatically become “Antisemite” and “Denier”. Correct?
    Last month, John Demjanjuk was sentenced to prison term for being a guard at Sobibor. In 1987, the movie “Escape from Sobibor” was released and surprisingly, Demjanjuk was not mentioned there at all. In 1987 Demjanjuk was in Israeli jail for being a guard in Treblinka. His pictures were published all around the globe and none of the Sobibor survivors recognized him. None! Why didn’t they come forward and tell the Israeli court, that Demjanjuk could not possibly be at Treblinka, since he was in Sobibor?
    Are we supposed to believe in that story in general? The individual witnesses are lying, but the whole story is true?

  14. Jon Stewart is a liberal comedian who makes jokes about anything that does not fit into his liberal agenda. He is not a news reporter nor a news commentator, as many people think he is; he is a comedian. His purpose is to attack conservatives under the guise of comedy.

    Glenn Beck’s program was originally a program to attack the liberal agenda, which he opposes. His early shows were against Communists, progressives, and also against Obama and his mentors. Many of the people that Beck criticized, on his early shows, were Jewish, although he didn’t mention that they were Jewish. So his early shows were the exact opposite of Jon Stewart’s shows.

    The American media is almost entirely slanted towards the liberal agenda. All of the major newspapers, news magazines and TV news coverage in America is slanted towards liberals, but the liberals are offended if anyone points this out. The Fox news channel is the only major news outlet which gives both sides of the news and reports news about the conservatives. That is why the Fox news channel is the most watched.

    It is surprising when Glenn Beck gets “weepy” about Israel because one would expect that he would explain both sides of history and would show some compassion for the Palestinians. America is pro-Israel but one would expect Glenn Beck to present both sides of the story or even to be pro-Palestinian. When I see him present only one side, in a show that is so “way over the top,” I suspect that he is doing it to save what is left of his career, after his show was canceled for criticizing the Jews, including “Spooky Dude” whom he accused of helping the Nazis.

  15. Not being American I don’t watch American TV, so all I know about Glenn Beck is filtered through the medium of John Stewart.

    Having said that, what is so surprising about a Fox channel show going weepy about Israel? I thought that was the point of Fox. Glenn Beck seems to be of the Christian Right and they have always been pro-Israel and the Holocaust is part of that package.
