Anti-Defamation League Says Glenn Beck ContributingTo Climate of Extremism

Reported by Priscilla - November 17, 2009 -

The ADL, whose mission is to "to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all," has issued a special report which discusses how Glenn Beck, who is described as "fearmonger in chief," is an example of how "the mainstream media has also played a role in promoting anti-government anger and pandering to people who believe that the Obama administration is illegitimate or even fascistic." He is cited as "the most important mainstream media figure who has repeatedly helped to stoke the fires of anti-government anger." They add that "Beck and his guests have made a habit of demonizing President Obama and promoting conspiracy theories about his administration." This is followed by several example of Beck's comparison of the Obama administration to Nazi Germany. Sadly, given the nature of Beck's demographics, I don't think his fans really care what the ADL thinks which is ironic given their belief that Obama is Hitler!
