Glenn Beck, a hub for free thought without the “thought” part, accused a man for a part in the Boston bombing earlier this week, but how can he make this accusation? Could it be that he has knowledge unknown to the government or it’s people? of course not. This is yet another example of his believe system. his credulous beliefs are usually benign or just silly (remember when he fasted for Ted Cruz to win the Republican candidacy?), but this has taken a dangerous step.
Recently, he has been becoming less and less popular due to his air headed remarks during the last campaign, but Beck seems to need some sort of attention. It is far too easy to imagine him as a toddler, fighting fro attention. but the accusation is a step too far and it has been noticed.
The weeks following the attack, Beck alleged that the government had labelled 20-year-old Abdulrahman Alharbi as a “proven terrorist” who funded the operation.
“You know who the Saudi is?” Beck, formerly of Fox News, said. “He’s the guy who paid for it.”
The claim was untrue, unfair, and irresponsible. Alharbi was questioned, his home searched and cleared by the authorities. But people are catching on! U.S. District Judge Patti B. Saris, has demanded proof from Beck. finally! Justice! It is doubtful that he can provide that proof because he doesn’t deal in proof. Of course Beck has good ideals involving personal freedoms, but evidence is not his specialty.
If Beck fails to produce evidence, the judge threatens to jail Beck for contempt. To be fair, Beck should also be tried for slander.
