Monday on his radio show, Glenn Beck called Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos “Goebbels” and denounced one of his recent articles as “one of the more evil stories I have ever read.” He blasted Breitbart for “pushing … poison to the republic.”
Beck’s point of contention was a story Yiannopoulos penned last week regarding Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s retweet of an image of his opponent Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) wife, Heidi Cruz, alongside his wife Melania Trump.
Yiannopoulos argued there was some merit to Trump’s controversial retweet, which has been adjudicated in the media for nearly a week now.
Beck, however, took issue with Yiannopoulos’ defense.
“I don’t want to make this a Donald Trump thing,” Beck declared. “I want to make this about you and our society. And I want you to decide if this is who we are. I believe this is one of the more evil stories I have ever read. What they are pushing in this story is poison to the republic.”
Similar to his comparison last month of Breitbart News Executive Chairman and Sirius XM radio host Stephen K. Bannon to the infamous Nazi propaganda minister, Beck also labeled Yiannopoulos’ effort as “Goebbels.”
“Just listen to the way this is written,” he added. “This is Goebbels.”
Yiannopoulos, responding to Beck’s on-air meltdown, remarked: “It’s so weird that he’d go with Goebbels when there are so many gay Nazis to choose from! Typically lazy. When people wheel out Hitler and the Nazis it’s generally because they don’t have any arguments left.”
Beck, who read Yiannopoulos’ piece in its entirety on air, warned that the culture is “under attack” and this is a sign we are headed towards the French Revolution.
“Our culture is under attack, and I — just prepare. Just prepare because we are headed towards the French Revolution.”
