Talk-show host Glenn Beck on his radio show likened the victims of the shooting at a Norwegian summer camp to young members of the Nazi Party.
In the seven-minute segment Monday morning, Beck described the attack “as a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth. I mean who sends their kids to a political camp?”
At least 85 people, some as young as 16, were killed in the second attack allegedly by Anders Behring Breivik at a summer camp that draws young members and children of the governing Labor Party.
Breivik, who adhered to radical right-wing theories about Islam and multiculturalism, was disguised in a police uniform when he carried out the attack on Utoyoa Island. He allegedly had set off a bomb in Oslo outside a government building, killing at least seven, before making his way to the island by ferry.
The Hitler Youth to which Beck referred was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party comprised of teens and preteens that existed from 1922 to 1945.
