Leftist columnist Joe Klein compares Glenn Beck to Japanese internment.
Newt Gingrich should be embarrassed, by the way. He's much smarter than this. Glenn Beck is something different. The guy's obviously a paranoid lunatic who is a great entertainer. And he is exploiting something that always happens in our country when the economy is bad and when we're at war. During World War I, if people were caught speaking German in the street, other people would beat them up.
During World War II, we interned the Japanese. And now there, the combination of bad, bad economic times over the last couple of years and, and, you know. the terrorism, has, has led to this wave that Glenn Beck and his puppet master Rupert Murdoch are exploiting.
If you're looking for great hate speech, the compassionate ones always deliver.
