(Newser) – Glenn Beck thinks people who attack his use of Nazi analogies are a lot like ... Nazis. The radio host—who was widely criticized for comparing victims of the Norway shooting rampage to Hitler youth—likened the early days of the Third Reich to the Obama administration's reaction to the debt crisis, and took offense when his co-host suggested that "the point here is not to say gas chambers in Kansas," reports the New York Daily News.

"Don't start," Beck yelled. "If we're living in a society where we can't say X in the same paragraph as Y and not be told we are comparing it ... if we are living in that society, we are doomed. We are going to be living in a society of gas chambers—if you can't have a logical conversation." Beck, who has been comparing Obama to Hitler since at least 2009, added that his GBTV Internet TV channel will be a good place to find that logical conversation.
