Glenn Beck roused the National Rifle Association's annual convention this weekend with his attacks on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but he also received criticism by a major Jewish group for depicting the mayor giving a Nazi salute.
The head of the Anti-Defamation League called Beck's comments "deeply offensive on so many levels," and B'nai B'rith called for Beck to apologize.
"Glenn Beck, the keynote speaker at the NRA's annual convention, trivializes the Holocaust when he compares New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to Adolf Hitler," B'nai B'rith told ABC News. "The casual use of Nazi imagery or words serves to undermine the atrocities of the Holocaust. Glenn Beck should apologize...more.
