Jewish organizations and other groups are demanding an apology from Glenn Beck after he shared a picture of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg apparently posing with a Nazi salute. Considering that the mayor was raised Jewish, it was a surprisingly poor comparison — even for a shock pundit like Glenn Beck.
Personally, while I disagree with the thoughts behind the picture, I’m not sure anything should be done. This pic was shown at the NRA convention in Texas. The conservative radio host was simply pandering to his audience. In a group of gun owners in Texas, anything to blast New York City is good business and will excite the crowd.
If I were advising Michael Bloomberg, I’d tell him to ignore it. Glenn Beck wanted attention — and the more it’s talked about, the happier he gets.
