Glenn Beck Lies About LGF

Media • Views: 4,141

Since Glenn Beck just launched an attack on me on his comedy show (right after a Ron Paul-like isolationist rant about bringing all US troops home now), here’s the text of the post I put up last night: Glenn Beck: Frog Killer.

This might have been another Glenn Beck stunt, designed to deliberately provoke outrage. He might come on his show tomorrow and say, “Hah! Fooled all you liberal commies! Had you going!”

Or he might not. How sad is it that we even have to ask the question?

But even if it was a stunt, and no frog was killed … this is still amazingly sick. This show airs at a time in the early afternoon when children are watching.

And to make my point even clearer, I posted this update a bit later:

I don’t watch Glenn Beck, but readers inform me that after this segment Beck revealed he was using a rubber frog.

My point about the irresponsibility of this kind of stunt still stands.

But Beck portrayed this as if I accused him — literally — of killing a frog. As you can see, that’s nothing short of a lie. And sure enough, there he was, playing a gotcha game just as I predicted.

Please note, however, that I don’t back down from anything I said above. It’s incredibly irresponsible of Beck to televise stunts that involve the killing — real or staged — of animals.

Nice to see that Glenn’s watching LGF, though. And maybe some of his viewers will be tempted to check out LGF, and see Beck squirming and weaseling out of explaining what he meant by “white culture.”

UPDATE at 9/24/09 2:58:55 pm:

Here’s the video clip:
