Glenn Beck Promotes Book by Antisemitic Nazi Sympathizer

Wingnuts • Views: 2,902

Fox News Hitler pimp Glenn Beck has a new favorite author: Glenn Beck’s new book club pick: Nazi sympathizer who praised Hitler and denounced the Allies.

On his radio show today, Glenn Beck heralded and promoted the work of Nazi sympathizer Elizabeth Dilling, who spoke at rallies hosted by the leading American Nazi group and praised Hitler. Today, Dilling is heralded by White Supremacists and White Aryans who revere her “fearless” work against Jewish people.

As Media Matters’ Simon Maloy noted, Beck had kind words for Dilling’s 1934 anti-communist book, The Red Network, saying: “This is a book — and I’m a getting a ton of these — from people who were doing what we’re doing now. We now are documenting who all of these people are. Well, there were Americans in the first 50 years of this nation that took this seriously, and they documented it.” Maloy noted that Dilling has a long history of rabid anti-Semitism, such as calling President Eisenhower “Ike the Kike” and labeling President Kennedy’s New Frontier program the “Jew frontier.”

Professor Glen Jeansonne and writer David Luhrssen note in the encyclopedia Women and War that Dilling wasn’t only anti-Semitic, but a sympathizer and supporter of the Nazis and Hitler:

When World War II began in 1939, Dilling was part of the national network of anti-Semitics, anti-Communists, and Nazi sympathizers such as Father Charles Coughlin, Reverend Gerald L. K. Smith, Reverend Gerald Winrod, and William Dudley Pelley. Material generated by Nazi organizations in Germany to inspire race hated and exploit dissatisfaction in the United States found its way into Dilling’s publications. She spoke at rallies hosted by the leading U.S. Nazi organization, the German-American Bund, and had traveled to Germany, pronouncing the country as flourishing under Hitler.

Dilling called for appeasing Germany; she blamed the war on Jews and Communists and accused the Roosevelt administration of being controlled by Jewish Communists. … After Pearl Harbor, Dilling resisted wartime rationing and denounced the Allies.

[…]

Dilling’s Nazi sympathies have made her a cult hero among Aryan groups and White Nationalists/Supremacists. For instance, the group Women for Aryan Unity features Dilling in a publication whose purpose is “to honour Aryan Women past and Present.”

[…]

Infamous racist David Duke, meanwhile, excerpts Dilling’s work on his website and states that as a 16-year old, he “found a book called The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today by Elizabeth Dilling.” stormfront.org, which describes itself as a “community of White Nationalists,” features numerous posts in its forum praising Dilling. “The Official Website of The Knights Party, USA” lists Dilling as one of its “Important Christian Women in History” and praises her for “Knowing the Jewish roots of Communism.”

Beck won’t suffer any consequences for this, of course; it’s not a problem for his audience.

UPDATE at 6/5/10 8:28:11 pm:

Here’s the book Glenn Beck is pushing: The Red network: a ‘who’s who’ and handbook of radicalism for patriots. LGF reader Killgore Trout points out a lovely quote from this toxic book:

…the American Negroes have acquired professions, property, banks, homes and produced a rising class of refined, home loving people. This is far more remarkable than that many negroes are still backwards. The Red play upon the Negroes’ love of their own people and represent them as persecuted in order to inflame them against the very White people who have in reality given the colored race far greater opportunities than their fellow negroes would have given them in Africa today.
