Beck promoted author who "attended Nazi party meetings" in Germany

Last Friday, Glenn Beck promoted the work of Nazi sympathizer Elizabeth Dilling. During the 1930s, Professor Glen Jeansonne notes in Women of the Far Right, Dilling visited Germany and "attended Nazi party meetings." She also traveled to Palestine "where, she said, she filmed Jewish immigrants ruining the Holy Land."

(More on Dilling's background, from Jeansonne, can be read here; Media Matters also interviewed Jeansonne, who criticized Beck's "ludicrous" embrace of Dilling.)

When World War II began in 1939, Dilling "spoke at rallies hosted by the leading U.S. Nazi organization, the German-American Bund" and denounced the Allies.

Despite this, Beck has refused to apologize for promoting Dilling's anti-Semitic work and worldview.
