Glenn Beck: youth camp attacked in Norway sounds "like the Hitler Youth"

The US shock jock says it is "disturbing" that Utoya youth camp, where 68 were murdered, was focused

Never one to shy away from controversial remarks, US right-wing pundit Glenn Back has caused an outcry with comments on his Premiere Radio Networks' show, The Glenn Beck Program.

Discussing the massacre in Norway, he says:

As the thing started to unfold, and then there was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler Youth or whatever -- I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing. But anyway, so there's this political camp, and some crazy man goes and starts shooting kids.
