Glenn Beck, American right-wing broadcaster, continues to grab headlines even after Fox. On a US radio show Monday, he compared the Norwegian kids killed in brutal massacre to 'Hitler Youth.'

“As the thing started to unfold and there was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth. Who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics? Disturbing,” Beck said on radio, of 76 killed during massive shooting on Utoya Island at summer camp.

“Glenn Beck’s comments are ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful," condemned Torbjorn Eriksen, former press secretary to Norway’s prime minister, to the Daily Telegraph.

"Hitler Youth" has become a top trend on Twitter, as comments of discust keep pouring in.

"Offensive, disgusting: US far-right mouthpiece compares murdered Norwegian children with 'Hitler youth'," said Michael Shapcott on Twitter.

So Glenn Beck is now calling the Oslo murder victims 'Hitler Youth.' What a hateful litttle prick," wrote .
