Glenn Beck, Ron Paul, and the Truthers
Stop the presses!
LGF reader Killgore Trout has discovered a truly shocking piece of evidence, at the meetup website for the April 15th Tea Party in San Antonio, Texas: Glenn Beck @ San Antonio Tea Party @ the ALAMO - We Are Change San Antonio 911 Truth (San Antonio, TX).
This is so earth-shattering, I’m not sure I should reveal it, although I guess I already kind of did. Perhaps I should wait and give Glenn Beck a chance to respond first.
Waiting … waiting …
OK, that’s enough time.
While Glenn Beck broadcast his radio show live from the event … wait, I’m almost overcome with astonishment, I need to get myself together before I start weeping … right in front of Beck and the other Tea Partiers, we find …
Does Glenn Beck think the US government staged the 9/11 attacks?
But wait, there’s even more evidence. A very frequent guest on the Glenn Beck show is Congressman Ron Paul, and here is Ron Paul telling a Truther that he would speak out about the “truth about 9/11,” except that he “can’t handle the controversy.”
And there’s still more!
Ron Paul’s campaign for President was absolutely lousy with 9/11 Truthers, and he appears frequently on the radio show of Alex Jones — one of the most notorious Truthers in America!
I rest my case! Why does Glenn Beck hate America?

Please note: I ladled on the sarcasm pretty thick in this post, but there’s a very serious point here too: Glenn Beck’s connections to Truthers are far more extensive and direct than Van Jones’.
It’s not just Ron Paul. I didn’t even bring up the fact that Beck frequently lets Judge Andrew Napolitano host his show, when Napolitano is a close friend of Truther Alex Jones.
