Glenn Beck on Monday ripped into NBC’s coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics, saying it may as well consider itself a “communist network” at this point.
Beck referred to NBC’s coverage of the opening ceremonies, in which a narrator described communism as a “pivotal experiment” while speaking of the “towering presence” of an “empire that ascended to affirm a colossal footprint.” The narrator also described the “collective heart” of the people that have “resisted any notion of limitation.”
“I didn’t realize that killing 50 million people was a ‘pivotal experiment,’” Beck said in a withering tone. “Bless their collective heart … can you imagine saying that about fascism? That was a pivotal experiment, wasn’t it? You know, ‘Here we are in Berlin, where this was the home of a pivotal experiment.’ No, it was called fascism. Killed millions of people.”
