Glenn Beck likes to use the word Nazi. A lot. According to a group of 400 angry rabbis, Beck has made “literally hundreds of on-air references to the Holocaust and Nazis when characterizing people with whom he disagrees.” The rabbis have written a letter to Glenn Beck and Fox President Roger Ailes, urging them to stop and demanding them to apologize.
The rabbis are running their letter as an advertisement in the News-Corp owned Wall Street Journal. Reuters reports that the rabbis paid $100,000 for the ad space.
The letter calls out Fox and Beck for their repeated use of Nazi and Holocaust references, as well as their attacks on World War II survivor George Soros.
Part of the letter reads:
“In the charged political climate in the current civic debate, much is tolerated, and much is ignored or dismissed… But you diminish the memory and meaning of the Holocaust when you use it to discredit any individual or organization you disagree with. That is what Fox News has done in recent weeks, and it is not only ‘left-wing rabbis’ who think so.”
The letter will be published in the Wall Street Journal tomorrow.
