Glenn Beck likens Norwegian summer camp to Hitler Youth

According to an article in Britain’s conservative Daily Telegraph newspaper, former Fox News star Glenn Beck said on his radio program, speaking about the summer camp where a murderer killed numerous children, “There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler youth. I mean, who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics? Disturbing.”

Actually, as the article points out, followers of Beck’s own 9/12 Project have been holding “vacation liberty schools” around the U.S. in which children as young as 8 have been taught Tea Party principles.

The summer camp in Norway, which has been going on for 60 years, teaches students about democracy.
