UPDATE: Wow. FOX News claimed copyright and had the video removed. That's a first. They never do that.
UPDATE: Right Scoop grabbed the video:
Something very disturbing happened today on FOX. Glenn Beck, who has, for the most part, steered clear of jihad, sharia and Islamic supremacism, put his toe in the water, and for the first time since I started fighting the long war, I got nervous.
Beck just called Wilders a fascist, and far-right.
He also mixed up Dominique de Villepin with Jean Marie Le Pen.
What is he doing?
Why would he stigmatize Wilders this way? Wilders is the embodiment of what our founding fathers extolled. Individual rights. Freedom of speech. Not sharia law.
Was Beck saying that the UK was right to ban Wilders in the interest of "community harmony?" And the fact that he was allowed to enter the UK last week was a dire sign?
He runs videos of the riots in Greece, but never runs the Muslim rampages throughout Europe.
Beck is out of his depth in this. You cannot get up to speed on Europe in one crash course. The Islamic/left-wing fringe is everywhere, but what right fringe is he talking about in Europe? It can't be Le Pen, he is nowhere. Is this going after SIOE, and the EDL?
Is this going to be be Beck's narrative? If so, he is wrong. And he ought to be silent until he learns everything.
Beck could destroy the freedom movement in Europe -- and the US -- if he erroneously stigmatizes it as fascist. The little green monster is one thing, and Glenn Beck is another.
UPDATE: Beck should know better. He is doing what the left-wing media did to the tea parties: labeled them fascists and racists with impunity.
I will post the Beck video as soon as I find a vidclip -- perhaps he hasn't seen this video...
If everyone is a bad guy, even the good guys, who is going to fight the good fight?
UPDATE: There was more on Brett Baier. They are drinking the Waleed-provided Kool-aid over there. (hat tip Jen)
Beck understood exactly the points Wilders was making and knows that this man's political perspective is far far from fascism. hat tip Dee
UPDATE: The green traitor is eating it up. Hat tip Armaros
anti-Muslim Dutch MP Geert Wilders (who wants to ban the Koran and make Islam itself illegal).
This is one of those Bizarro days, because I actually find myself agreeing with Glenn Beck. Geert Wilders is a far right ideologue, and the European far right does equal fascism. How the heck did Beck ever get this one right?
Wilders never wanted to make Islam illegal and neither did he want to ban the Koran. He wants to limit Muslim immigration (e.g. Quebec limits non French speaking immigration)
and compared the Koran to Mein Kampf. He did not want to ban Islam !
This is the biggest lie perpetrated about him and which makes him look like a bigot. It is Alinsky Takiya!!
Wilders was making a point about hate speech laws and how hypocritical was it for him to be pursued while the Koran gets off the hook.
