On his radio program today, Glenn Beck spent a segment discussing the recent video showing a white Texas police officer roughing up a black teenager girl at a pool party, which he naturally asserted was just more proof of his conspiracy theory that progressives are working to discredit the local police in order to justify a federal takeover.
During the discussion, Beck and his co-hosts wondered why adults in the area didn't intervene during the confrontation and help the police round up the teenagers at the party, concluding that nobody helped out because they were afraid of getting involved.
And since this is Glenn Beck, it was then only a matter of time before he brought it all back to Nazi Germany.
"They made you afraid," Beck said. "Why are people not speaking out on things now? You're afraid. Why don't you say things anymore? Because you might be called a nasty name. You might be destroyed. They are making you afraid. The first thing the goon squads that Hitler had out; do you know how he grabbed control of Germany? Now thank God, we're not here, but it's happening to us mentally."
Beck then went on to recall how Hitler's Brownshirts would beat up anyone who did not support their agenda in an effort to intimidate anyone who might consider voicing their opposition in order to warn that the same thing is happening in America today.
"That's how they did it," Beck said. "Well, that's happening to us mentally now. Every time you speak out, every time you don't comply, God forbid you say something about Caitlyn Jenner like Clint Eastwood, they'll hammer the snot out of you. They'll destroy your job, they'll destroy you socially, they'll make your name the worst bigoted name out there. You cannot be afraid. If you're afraid now, you wait. You stay silent much longer and it will get much, much worse."
