Beck Accuses Jewish Social Justice Worker Of Advocating A New Holocaust.

It really does seem as if every day brings a new reason to be outraged at Glenn Beck and the rubbish he spouts.

Last month Simon Greer — the president and CEO of Jewish Funds for Justice - addressed Beck's claim that "social justice" was simply a disguise for socialism:

“Mr. Beck, you are a con man and America is not buying it,” Greer wrote. “When churches, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship across this country advocate for social justice, advocate for the common good, advocate for America, they, and we, walk in God’s path.”
Beck responded to him yesterday by stating that Greer's advocacy of social justice “leads to death camps.” “A Jew, of all people, should know that,” Beck added. “This is exactly the kind of talk that led to the death camps in Germany.”

Greer has made a statement responding to Beck's charge.
Glenn Beck has a history of recklessly invoking Nazi Germany and the Holocaust in order to advance his political agenda. But never before has Beck accused Jews – including survivors of the Holocaust and their children and grandchildren – of paving the way for fascism. Through his comments, Beck has demonstrated that he has no idea what leads to fascism. Jews and others, who were victims of the Holocaust, do not have the luxury of his ignorance.

Beck’s reflexive hatred for government is rejected by Americans of all backgrounds, who have seen the powerful role government can play in providing us with greater freedom, security, and opportunity. I am proud of the work we do at Jewish Funds for Justice, where our belief that we are all made in the image of the divine compels us to petition private enterprise, charities, and yes, the government, to do their part to ensure our shared divinity.
There is simply not a day that passes without this idiot Beck saying something which is highly offensive.

Lewis Black nailed him before on this "Nazi Tourettes" which he constantly displays.

Beck even claims that, "Empathy leads you to very bad decisions many times." That sentence alone tells you that the man is a moron.
